Remember, TBC, IUOC and FAWU, are all metaphors that we use to make a model that we can talk about. Don't take them literally. Metaphors allow us to take something that is entirely abstract and talk about it in terms of objective causality (a description of what causes what and the functional relati...

s.lareck, OVERALL YOUR UNDERSTANDING IS EXCELLENT! I HAVE ADDED MY COMMENTS TO YOUR POST IN CAPITOL LETTERS SO YOU CAN SEE HOW I HAVE MODIFIED YOUR CONCEPTS SLIGHTLY. The IUOC is the accumulated “storehouse” of consciousness quality—the true self. A FWAU, a CONSTRAINED SUBSET of the IUOC, experience...

Two questions from Linda, Q1. how do you live an ethical life when many goods you buy come are produced using slave labor – she had just discovered Apple Incorporated have had many accusations made against them some of which include the use of children under the minimum work age for work in several ...

Off the top of my head: No, I do not think that this is a good QM experiment. It confuses too many issues. first exp: The one thing it does do is what I said was easy -- creating a diffraction pattern. Second Exp: The diffraction goes away because the beams are orthogonally polarized not because of ...

Randy, Sorry, I have no comment. I have not looked at any home double slit experiments. Being totally ignorant, I an completely free offer vague generalities that may or may not be true: getting a laser to make a diffraction pattern by shining it on double slits is trivial and thus easy to do at hom...

IUofC: “It appears that the website simply quotes the PEAR data as-is. The core of the rebuttal on PEAR's research is that the change is very small, and only discernible due to the uniquely large sampling rate. Some would say 'thats good science' - a large sampling rate. Others like the author of th...

Quote Jeff: “You own a master copy of a recording. You haven't listened but it's data is available to you if you want to listen. You copy it to a CD. You remove tracks from the master copy or destroy it. When you listen to your CD the tracks are gone. Can this happen? No,because there's a difference...

San: "1. When a single photon is fired, it gets paired and one of them will always hit D0. Now, wouldn't that mean, that the coordinates of a single light spot could be measured on D0 before its pair hits D1-4? If that is correct, then, as you explained, it would not possible to determine, whet...

San, There is no way D0 can be displayed immediately. The pattern at Do is made by large collection of points. Everytime a new single photon is fired at the apparatus, one point is added to D0 and one point is added to one of the other 4 detectors. The pattern emmerges when the coincident data is so...

Jeff: "if we were to erase the coincidence counter [data] before we look at the raw, unsorted data on the D-0 detector screen, we would not see the usual added bands of brightness correlated with 'hits' at D3 and D4." All of the “D3 and D4 data” that would have ended up in piles behind eac...

kroeran, I do not like the fact that, within your scheme, there is no objective information being collected and made available in PMR. The "which way" data exists only as subjective information in the memories of the scientist observers -- as I mentioned before, this is a grey undefined ar...

kroeran, The uncertainty is not equivalent. You are confused because you never studied quantum mechanics. No point trying to make sense out of it unless you absorb a whole lot of background information because the terms being used have special, non-common meanings. It is QM-speak This wavelength is ...

Jeff: “It too must have interacted with a field somehow because its not just guessing there ? “ Jeff: “That is to say that a detector should have some subtle entanglement with the 'particle' in order to detect anything at all, otherwise the detector isn't really working right? “ A competent DS exper...

Jeff: "There was only the presence of an electrical current at the slits" Simple explanation: Electric current creates a magnetic field that will influence (apply a force to) the electrons. The larger the current the greater the force. The closer the electron to the current, the stronger t...

Jeff, it is not about whether or not a particle is detected, it is about what objective information is available in PMR about that detection. That the detector is detecting without gathering any information is, from the viewpoint of our virtual reality, the same as no detector. The reality runs on i...
