Time, Spacetime and Consciousness
by Matti Pitkanen

Abstract: 
 This article is devoted to the TGD based view about time, space-time, and consciousness. The article begins with an updated view about the notions of many-sheeted space-time and topological field quantization taking remote metabolism as an example about the new biophysics made possible by negative energy MEs and many-sheeted space-time.

The TGD based view about time and intentionality is analyzed. The basic new result is the characterization of intentionality as a local randomness combined with long range temporal correlations realized in terms of p-adic fractal statistics involving the breakdown of the ordinary real statistics. The elegance of the model is that long range correlations reflecting intentionality reduce to p-adic continuity: very distant space-time points can be very close p-adically. This characterization allows to experimentally differentiate between intentionality and genuine randomness and determine the p-adic prime characterizing the intentional system without any model dependent assumptions. The astrophysical real size for the p-adically small space-time sheets representing intentions justifies the assumption about astrophysical sizes of the personal magnetic body and MEs meaning the most dramatic deviation between TGD based and standard view about living matter.

The TGD inspired view about time and brain is compared with the neuroscience based vision. The time delays related to passive and active aspects of consciousness discovered by Libet are shown to support the notion of magnetic body having astrophysical size. The general model for the intentional action allows to understand sensory perception, motor action, and memory as special cases of the mechanism for which the personal magnetic body is the intentional agent and motor action proceeds from long to short length and time scales. The intention represented by a p-adic ME is transformed to a negative energy ME representing the desire about the action and entangling the magnetic body with some lower level in the hierarchy. The cascade of intentions transformed to desires eventually reaches the material body and induces the desired action as a reaction in the geometric past communicated classically to the geometric future. Brain only reacts to the desires quantum communicated from the geometric future, which explains the coherence of motor action difficult to understand if brain genuinely plans and initiates the action. Also remote mental interactions are based on the same mechanism and precognition and long term memory as well as PK and retro PK can be seen as different aspects of the same phenomenon.

The model predicts four types of memories corresponding to cyclotron transitions of protons and electrons and Z0 cyclotron transitions of neutrons and neutrinos identifiable as long term sensory and motor memories (p,n) , short term sensory memories (e), and cognitive working memories (n). Some models for long term memories are discussed and only the so called time-mirror mechanism is found to be consistent with the identification of the magnetic body as experiencer. A precise realization of the time-mirror mechanism based on spin glass degeneracy is identified.

 

Are Memories Really Stored in the Brain? A Quantum Theoretical Non-local Model of Human Memory
Nicholas H.E. Prince

Abstract:  The possibility of a radically new mechanism to explain the functioning of human long-term memory is considered. After reviewing orthodox nodal and connectionist (internal) memory models, an alternative model is proposed. This model assumes at the outset that memories are not stored in the brain at all. Rather it is proposed that the brain operates more like an aerial rather than an internal memory storage device. The model assumes also that decoherence effects do not invalidate a quantum theoretical treatment of the brain subsystems responsible for memory recall and it is shown how memories are recovered atemporally (non locally in time) from at least the past null cone of the recipient.  The cosmological consequences of the atemporal physics underpinning the model are reviewed in terms of the nature and emergence of well defined sub-atomic particles in early times following the big bang. Also it is explained how the model gives a quite natural explanation to certain reported effects such as E.S.P, psychic phenomena and reincarnation experiences.


Quantum Model of Nerve Pulse, EEG and ZEG
Matti Pitkanen

Abstract: The topics of this article is the TGD inspired model of nerve pulse, EEG and ZEG (classical Z0 fields are a prediction differentiating between TGD and standard model). The basic idea is that Z0 boundary MEs for which classical fields propagate with effective phase velocity equal to the conduction velocity of nerve pulse induce also electromagnetic membrane oscillations and even nerve pulse if Z0 electric field is strong enough and of correct sign. The mysterious anesthetic action of noble gases can be seen as a direct evidence for the role of the classical Z0 force. The model explains elegantly also the strange findings challenging the notions of ionic pumps and channels.

The TGD view about the functions of membrane oscillations, nerve pulse and neural transmitters is summarized. Electromagnetic membrane oscillations induced by Z0 MEs provide a realization of the memetic code as a fundamental cognitive code. The binding of various information molecules to the corresponding receptors gives rise to neuronal qualia. Neurotransmitters could be also seen as conscious links in quantum web. The view that inhibition actually requires active energy feed and that excitation occurs automatically in the absence of the energy feed and induces entanglement with environment, is defended. This view conforms with Huxley's vision about brain as a lter inhibiting conscious experiences.

A p-adic hierarchy of superconductivities is the basic prediction of TGD inspired model of living matter. The many-sheeted model of the effective electronic superconductivity explains at quantitative level the recent findings of Hafedh Abdelmelek and his group about the reduction of the axonal resistivity in the range of physiological temperatures. The effective superconductivity might play key role in the saltation within myelin sheeted portions of the axon. The view about what happens at the microtubular level during synchronous neuronal firing relies on a many-sheeted model for sol-gel phase transitions as conscious bits and on the seesaw mechanism of remote metabolism according to which sol-gel transitions induces gel-sol transitions elsewhere in the cell and vice versa. Microtubular surfaces can be seen as analogs of cortical sensory and motor areas providing kind of conscious log files about sensory and motor history of the cell in terms of conformational transitions of tubulin dimers representing conscious bits.

In the TGD inspired model of EEG and ZEG EEG-ZEG dichotomy corresponds to sensory-motor dichotomy. EEG rhytms are induced by negative energy MEs whereas evoked and even related potentials are assumed to relate to positive energy EEG MEs responsible for classical communications of symbolic representations to magnetic body and declarative long term memories. The scaling law of homeopathy and p-adic length scale hypothesis allow to see the evolution of consciousness as the emergence of lower EEG and ZEG frequencies.

The hypothesis that EEG and ZEG resonance frequencies correspond to the universal p-adic frequencies and their sums and differences (and more general superpositions) by mutual modulation, and that each p-adic prime p approx. 2^k, k power of prime, defines a hierarchy of cognitive codons with k bits and duration given by the n-ary p-adic time scale, reduces EEG and ZEG to simple number theory. The outcome is a successful prediction for the resonance frequencies of EEG and ZEG, and one can understand the informatics of EEG and ZEG and relate them to the brain structure and function.

The findings that cyclotron frequencies in the Earth's magnetic field are in EEG range and ZEG cyclotron frequencies are in alpha band, motivate the hypothesis that p-adic frequencies correspond to cyclotron frequencies. This hypothesis allows to identify the ions responsible for various cognitive representations. The dropping of ions between magnetic flux tubes corresponding to different p-adic primes explaining the findings of Peter Gariaev explains also the modulation of p-adic frequencies by p-adic frequencies. Only the biologically most important ions are needed if one assumes that p-adically scaled versions of the Earth's magnetic field are present, and are quantized as stripe like structures characteristic for a superconductor of type I near criticality. The disappearance and appearance of EEG bands as percepts are changed lead to the view that the magnetic body is subject to intentional control by the generation of wormhole magnetic fields consisting of flux quanta with opposite time orientation and thus having a vanishing net energy.

The notion of feature introduced by Freeman to describe mesoscopic aspects of brain function is related to the memetic code but generalizes to the case of an arbitrary cognitive code. Neuronal synchronization in terms of Z0 MEs serves as a basic element in the model for how intentional action is realized at neuronal level.

 

Quantum Model of the Sensory Receptor
Matti Pitkanen


Abstract: 
 In TGD framework various qualia correspond to the average increments of quantum numbers and of so called zero modes for sequences of quantum jumps. Quantum numbers could be spin, momentum, energy, electromagnetic charge, color quantum numbers (isospin and hypercharge in a constant proportion), various particle numbers, etc... In the sensory receptors the gradient of some physical quantity is transformed to average increments of appropriate quantum numbers responsible for the quale representing the gradient of the physical quantity. Spatial gradients are transformed first to temporal gradients by a process, which is essentially scanning (say saccadic motion). Temporal gradients are then transformed to non-vanishing average increments of appropriate charges per quantum jump in a long sequence of quantum jumps. The problem is to understand how this process is realized at the level of sensory receptors. In this article a model of visual receptor is constructed in order to clarify the issues involved.

Sensory perception is very active process, much like building of an artwork, and involves a continual selection between alternative percepts. If sensory representations are at the level of magnetic bodies of the sensory organs, this requires the presence of back-projection from magnetic body to brain to sensory organs. Back-projection would be a particular kind of motor action which could be based on classical communications or quantum metabolism by a feed of negative energy to some part of sensory organ which in turn feeds negative energy to higher levels of CNS.

The assumption that sensory qualia are realized at the level of sensory receptors, when combined with the requirement that the average increments of quantum numbers are non-vanishing, and perhaps even remain same for subsequent quantum jumps, poses strong constraints on the model of the sensory receptor. These constraints suggest what might be called the capacitor model of the sensory receptor. There are two reservoirs of quantum charges having total charges of equal magnitude but of opposite sign. The net charges are macroscopic in order to guarantee robustness. These reservoirs are analogous to capacitor plates, and only the second one corresponds to the sensory experienced quale unless both the quale and its conjugate are experienced simultaneously. Capacitors plates can carry several charges. When the sensory quale is generated, there is a flow of charge quanta between the quantum capacitor plates. The charge quanta are more or less constant. This requirement could be relaxed to the condition that only the average increment is constant.

The capacitor model is applied to develop a model of photoreceptors and retina and a special consideration is given to the problem how back projection might be realized. An argument relying on some simple findings about the early development of embryo leads to the working hypothesis that the back-projection from brain is classical for "skin senses" and quantal for "brain senses". "Skin sense" receptors could however entangle with environment, which could explain why galvanic skin response (GSR) acts as a correlate for subliminal remote mental interactions. This remote mental interaction usually unconscious to us would be the analog of the primary perception exhibited by plants and even by biomolecules. Both the notion of back-projection and the not so fundamental hypothesis about division to skin and brain senses are detailed enough to be testable and several tests are proposed.

 

New Hierarchic  Theory of Water and Its Role in Biosystems.  Bivacuum Mediated Time Effects, Electromagnetic, Gravitational and Mental Interactions
Alex Kaivarainen

Abstract: This paper contains few interrelated parts. The short version of new quantum Hierarchic theory, general for solids and liquids, created by the author is presented. Condensed matter in this theory is considered as a system of 3D standing waves (collective excitations) of different nature: thermal de Broglie waves (waves B), IR photons, related to intermolecular oscillations and thermal phonons (acoustic waves). Theory is verified by computer simulations on examples of pure water and ice, using special computer program (copyright 1997, Kaivarainen) yielding about 400 physical parameters, most of them hidden for direct experiment. The idea of new optoacoustic device with huge informational potential: Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) with its various configurations and applications, based on Hierarchic theory is presented. The full version of this part of paper is on-line http://arXiv.org/abs/physics/0102086. Good correlation between simulated parameters of water and proteins dynamic structure points to crucial role of water in biopolymers evolution.

The idea of Infrared laser and ultrasound radiation induced cancer cells selective disintegrator, based on biophysical mechanism of cancer emergence, has been proposed. It is shown, that multi-fractional model of interfacial water structure, introduced by author, can be responsible for some of morphogenetic field properties, related to alternating water activity. Computer simulations point, that coherent water clusters could be in state of mesoscopic molecular Bose condensation (mBC) even at physiological temperatures. The coherent IR radiation of such kind of enlarged water clusters in microtubules is supposed to be responsible for exchange interaction between microtubules of distant neurons, stimulating [gel-sol] transitions in neurons bodies, their volume and shape pulsation, and synaptic reorganization. It is a part of elementary act of consciousness (quantum Mind) worked out. The principle of Audio/Video Signals Skin Transmitter, Based on our Hierarchic model of consciousness, is suggested.

The Unified Model (UM) of Bivacuum, corpuscle [C] -wave [W] duality, electromagnetic and gravitational fields has been developed. Bivacuum is considered as the infinitive continuum, formed by the mass, electric and magnetic dipoles (Bivacuum fermions). Sub-elementary particles/antiparticles are the result of stable Bivacuum fermions symmetry shift, determined by resonant energy exchange interaction with Bivacuum. The triplets of sub-elementray particles and sub-elementary antiparticles and their combinations form the elementary particles. The [<==> W ] pulsation of sub-elementary particles are accompanied by emission - absorption of cumulative virtual clouds (CVC), formed by subquantum particles. The irreversible parts of CVC energy, determined by translational (longitudinal and transversal) contributions to kinetic energy of elementary particles, are responsible for electromagnetic and gravitational fields creation.

Perturbation of Bivacuum properties, induced by [<==> W ] pulsation of particles, composing matter, we named Virtual Replica (VR) of matter. The massless nonlocal wave-guide (channel) between Sender [S] and Receiver [R] is formed by virtual spin waves (VirSW) of Bivacuum. The VirSWwith properties of Nambu-Goldstone collective modes, are excited by the angular moment (spin) of reversible part of CVC energy (rotational), related to the rest mass of particles. The internal magnetic field and refraction index inside the virtual wave-guide (VirWG) are bigger, than the external ones, providing spatially directed exchange of virtual photons (energy) and spin state (information) between [S] and [R]. The macroscopic entanglement between [S] and [R] is a consequence of three factors: Harmonization force (HaF) of Bivacuum, realization of Principle of least action and modulation of virtual channels between [S] and [R] by nonlocal flicker noise. This flicker noise may have the same nature, as macroscopic fluctuations, discovered by S. Shnoll (1954-2003). In accordance to our theory, this noise can be a result of interference and quantum beats between nonlocal VirSW and Virtual Pressure Waves (VPW +/-),  activated in Bivacuum by [<==> W ] pulsation of elementary particles of [Sender] (Sun) and [Receiver] (different test systems). These two kinds of virtual waves form the virtual channels between [S] and [R]. The character of macroscopic fluctuations, providing the channels-mediated interaction, is dependent on properties of Virtual Replica of [S] - (Sun, perturbed by interaction with planets of Solar system) and Virtual Replica of [R] - (test systems on the Earth, perturbed by interaction with Moon). The time-dependent macroscopic fluctuations spectrums are dependent also on the relative position of Sun [S] and test-systems [R] and on the distance between them, i.e. on the Earth rotation (local time) and position of the Earth on the elliptic orbit around the Sun (month of the year). It is because the effects of beats and interference between the virtual waves, excited by [S] and [R] in Bivacuum, ability to form standing waves, are the function of the distance between them.

It is shown, that the pace of time:

dt/-d (EE + EG)/( EE + EG) = 

       = dlnt = - dln(EE + EG)

(real and virtual) is determined by the relative variations of the electromagnetic (EE) and gravitational (EG) potentials of any closed system (real and virtual). The positive pace of virtual time, accompanied by decreasing of resulting (EE + EG), reflects the evolution/self-organization of complex VRS of Solar system, including the VREarth of the Earth. It is possible, because the complex VR has  properties of active medium in state far from equilibrium. The resulting [Virtual Replica + Actual Matter and Fields] of the Universe due to possibility to self-organization and feedback reaction in system
[Matter 
<==> Fields <==> VirtualReplica] acquire a functions of quantum supercomputer and Superconsciousness.

In combination with our model of Quantum Mind, these ideas were used for possible explanation of Bivacuum mediated ultraweak interaction, like mind-matter interaction, telepathy, remote vision, clairvoyance, etc. (see also http://arXiv.org/abs/0207027 and http://arXiv.org/abs/physics/0103031).

The background of so called ’free energy of vacuum’ are gravitational, electric and magnetic fields, shifting the symmetry of Bivacuum fermions (the mass, electric and magnetic dipoles) and making their resulting (differential) mass and charge nonzero. As a consequence, the interaction energy of the external gravitational, electric and magnetic fields with asymmetric Bivacuum dipoles - becomes nonzero also. The overunity devices (Brown, Bearden, Naudin, Searl and other) in their simplest versions use the uncompensated superfluous energy of asymmetric Bivacuum dipoles, generated by the Earth gravitation (in some sense, this energy is like the energy of waterfall). However, similar or opposite by sign symmetry shift of Bivacuum to that, induced by the Earth gravitation, can be reached as well by strong external magnetic (Searl, Bearden et al., Naudin) or electric (Brown) fields. The antigravitation effect can be achieved by the certain superposition of artificial gravitation, induced by centripetal acceleration, magnetic field of device, containing set of rotating magnets, with gravitational field of the Earth (Searl, Roshin and Godin). Such kinds of listed effects can be used for propulsion and as a source of pure energy.
