Bell’s Theorem: The Quantum Venn Diagram Paradox

This video is about Bell’s Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics. Even though Albert Einstein (together with collaborators in the EPR Paradox paper) wanted to show that quantum mechanics must be incomplete because it was nonlocal (he didn’t like “spooky action at a distance”), John Bell managed to prove that any local real hidden variable theory would have to satisfy certain simple statistical properties that quantum mechanical experiments (and the theory that describes them) violate.

Killing Science Fiction: Why Conscious States Cannot Be Copied or Repeated

Several philosophical problems arising from the physics of consciousness, including identity, duplication, teleportation, simulation, self-location, and the Boltzmann Brain problem, hinge on one of the most deeply held but unnecessary convictions of physicalism: the assumption that brain states and their corresponding conscious states can in principle be copied. In this paper I will argue against this assumption by attempting to prove the Unique History Theorem, which states, essentially, that conscious correlations to underlying quantum mechanical measurement events must increase with time and that every conscious state uniquely determines its history from an earlier conscious state.

Connected: The Emergence of Global Consciousness

This is the story of the Global Consciousness Project, a unique 20-year scientific collaboration of researchers recording the effects of mass consciousness in response to major global events. Its findings are consistent with the wisdom traditions of many cultures and speak of humanity’s unity and deep connections through love, compassion, and the creative impulse.

Switching To Digital Art For Magic

A lot of my magical practices utilize very elaborate illustrations of different symbols and archetypes. A lot of my practices include sigils, seals, talismans, various languages, and fantastical illustrations of things I might encounter. If I run into an unfamiliar being, I will sketch it out. For me, it was always important that it have some sort of aesthetic. I need to be able to look at it and think it’s pretty. On the left side of this post (above this post if you are viewing this from a mobile device) is an example of my work. My art very Read More
