An EM/Quantum Field Theory of Consciousness

Brainstorm 1: CEMI Field Theory and Coherence Fields CEMI (Conscious Electromagnetic Information) theory claims that synchronous neuron firing creates an electromagnetic field which suffuses across relatively large regions of the brain to stimulate even further neuron activity, which upon reaching a sufficiently robust level comprises the substance of fully conscious awareness. The originator of this … Continue reading An EM/Quantum Field Theory of Consciousness

The Fine Structure Constant and Atomic Theory

The fine structure constant is a dimensionless combination of Coulomb’s constant (k), electric charge (e), Planck's constant (h), and the speed of light (c) in the formula ke2/hc. For any context of units, this constant usually has the same value, approximately 1/137. The maximum quantity of possible paired electron configurations or orbitals in an atom's … Continue reading The Fine Structure Constant and Atomic Theory

Relativity Theory and the Quantum/Classical Divide: Time Dilation and Contraction in Matter

Philosophy and science have long pondered the nature of time. It has traditionally been viewed as a constant though arbitrary yardstick in relation to which material change is measured, but do the basic equations of physics that employ it support this assumption? Let’s consider: 1. The units of Planck’s constant are joule seconds or (meters^squared) … Continue reading Relativity Theory and the Quantum/Classical Divide: Time Dilation and Contraction in Matter

Brainstormed Sketches of An Integrated Wave Function for Quantum Physics

Sketch 1: Pilot wave theory envisions matter as consisting in particles whose paths of motion are guided by supradimensional waves. Collapse models describe particles as resulting from mechanisms of condensation within a global wave. Can we combine the idea of supradimensional waves with that of particularization as a concentrated wave to derive an image of … Continue reading Brainstormed Sketches of An Integrated Wave Function for Quantum Physics
