Science and the Quest for Truth
These notes were taken from an interview by thelovitcenter for Advanced Consciousness Studies.
- Falsification of a theory means you have to be able to prove a theory is false or else the theory is not useful.
- The influence of our intent on physical systems is limited by the natural uncertainty of the system. A random number generator has a very limited range of uncertainty, hence only a small bias can be effected.
- Reverse causality is assigned to the apparent change of experimental data after the experiment has been done. For example, consider a set of random numbers collected a year ago. Before the results are examined, intent is used to make a shift in the numbers within the limits of the random number uncertainty. When the numbers are seen to have been influenced, it is believed that the mind has somehow changed the number generator in the past. No, there is no reverse causality, this is just related to psi uncertainty whereby the results of an experiment are indeterminate until they are examined. If the results were examined at the time of generation, then not bias will be visible in the test results.
- Some interesting experiments can be carried out with so called reverse causality. If the total sum of an experiment was known, and a subset changed through intent, the rest of the set will have to change in the reverse direction to adhere with the overall defined system total. This is a way of adding constraints to the uncertainty of the data.
- Our whole reality is subjective, it just a small piece that has small uncertainty and that's what we call objective reality. Psychology and other sciences have a high degree of uncertainty because they deal with people. Objective reality is only approximately objective, everything is really subjective. Quantum mechanics made Newtonian mechanics no longer applicable to everything.
- It is just not true that if you get the answers all the scientific community will back you up. Pear Labs has demonstrated psi principles for years yet it is still not really accepted by mainstream science.
- Science is affected by beliefs as much as anything else.
- Everybody knows about the placebo effect, yet know body understands why. It is paranormal - no normal way to explain it.
- The truth is not fragile. It will come out in the end.
- More and more physicists are consider virtual reality as explaining some of the difficult questions of science.
- The double slit experiment showed that physical reality is not objective.
- There needs to be a paradigm shift to make sense of the subjective nature of reality. In a way science is in denial. We still see the world as a deterministic machine.
- Regarding the double slit experiment: it is not consciousness that collapses the wave function. It is not the measurement that collapses the wave function either. It is the data. A measurement can be taken, but if it is erased, it is as though the measurement was never taken. Consciousness is linked in the equation. When consciousness gets the information, it becomes reality, otherwise it is a probability.
- The idea that we are living in a virtual statistical reality works, and explains reverse causality and how reality is subjective. Also explains the big bang. It starts out of nothing - hall mark of a virtual reality.
- When Richard Feynman said nobody can understand quantum mechanics, he meant under classical objective mechanics. He is right. Quantum mechanics can be considered to be paranormal.
- A lot of things are paranormal because our paradigms need to shift.
- Remote viewing works. It was used by the CIA for 20 years. We just don't understand why.
- Quantum mechanics and Relativity both have assumptions that the other can't be right. Yet how can they both be right? Relativity appears objective for the most part, but underneath it is subjective as demonstrated by Quantum mechanics.
- Virtual reality mechanics explains Relativity, and the fact that virtual reality is a statistical probability reality explains Quantum mechanics.
