A few days ago, I received the below email from Ted Vollers (a longtime participant of this forum) asking me to take a look at the latest chapter of his web based book, "The Nature of God ~ Ultimate Reality", which you can read at his site: http://www.active-mysticism.com
Ted's email: Tom, would you consider looking at a chapter I have written for a book I am writing, based on the things I have learned from the expansion in viewpoint I experienced after reading My Big TOE and realizing how my then perspective fit into the bigger picture of your TOE and understanding of The One. It begins from a discussion of how I believe The Big Computer performs the function of generating our individual inputs of data streams to generate our experience of each virtual reality that we participate in. It discusses what I call the Virtual Reality Rendering Engine as a sub function of TBC and the fractal nature of the generation of this data stream. Based on these concepts, I include a discussion of how Quantum Mechanics and quantum anomalies of modern physics experiments result from the natural functioning of the Virtual Reality Rendering Engine as another example of the economical use of computing resources by The One. I would appreciate any comments and corrections you might make.
After reading Ted's chapter I was delighted to find that Ted had pushed the logical implications of TBC computing our virtual PMR reality to the next level and in doing so found a solid explanation for quantum mechanics being the way it is. Physicists do not today understand the fundamentals of why quantum mechanics (physical reality described in terms of a probability wave function) should work. Indeed, they have no idea why physical reality at its deepest level must be described in terms of probability functions that only deliver a specific physical result when an observer causes the wave function to collapse to a specific physical value. They only know that the mathematical methodology generally know as quantum mechanics produces correct results -- not how or why it accurately models physical reality, only that it does. How and why the addition of an observer (a sentient entity making a measurement or observation) should alter or determine the result of a physical measurement has remained one of the great central mysteries of quantum mechanics. It is often referred to as the consciousness connection, which by some unknown mechanism places consciousness (awareness) as a co-creator in, an interactive element of, determining the nature of reality. The famous wave-particle dichotomy was the first among a long series of still mysterious phenomena that have befuddled physicists for almost a century.
Ted figured it out. He makes a logical argument that quantum mechanics is the straightforward natural result of TBC generating our virtual reality. Predicting quantum mechanics from basic principles is no small feat -- That this reality cell based TOE derives the logical necessity for the statistical basis of quantum science from fundamental principles lends much scientific weight to the fact that PMR is indeed a virtual reality generated in the consciousness of the observer. Moreover it produces a more general understanding of how the quantum mechanical conceptual process applies to the Macro-world. Quantum mechanics, shown to be a special case of a more general principle, is finally given a firm theoretical foundation (why and how it is connected to the underlying structure of all reality -- not just physical reality, and not just in the realm of the very small).
The argument, very briefly, goes like this: The content of our virtual physical reality is based upon the perceptions of consciousness. The data supporting the existence of PMR in the minds of its resident players is generated from probable future reality calculations and present choices (see MBT
Section 5) and implemented only when a consciousness requires the data. Thus all virtual reality at every level is governed by the same statistical processes that are commonly applied within the science of quantum mechanics. These probabilistic processes become noticeable when one is dealing at the individual pixel level of a virtual reality. That these pixels turn out to be statistical representations of the potential for existence within PMR waiting for a consciousness to require the data as (collapse the wave function to) a measurable solid result is a direct consequence of how our virtual PMR is generated within consciousness.
I have asked Ted to respond here and give us a link to his work so all who are interested can read it for themselves.
