Quantum Brain or Torsion Field?

The unconscious is the matrix of all metaphysical statements, of all mythology, of all philosophy, and of all expressions of life that are based on psychological premises. --Jung CW 11
Consciousness is a fundamental biological and physics property. Quantum mechanical phenomena, such as quantum entanglement, superposition, quantum vibrations, and spin manifolds (rotational relativity) may play an important part in the brain's function. Quantum theory complicates the view of the vacuum with virtual states and pair production. For decades researchers have attempted to describe the ground state of being in terms of quantum mind. The preferred pop term for the virtual vacuum zero operator has switched from scalar and zero point to torsion field (quantum spin of empty space; spin waves).
“Spin Doctors” correlate this large-scale coherent effect with Consciousness – the Holy Grail of the Quantum Quest. Modeled by Kozyrev in the 50s, the torsion field is produced by the spin of virtual vacuum photons, which may be the energetic field underlying collective [entangled] and individual mind. This groundstate has "never been", yet is continuously emerging and may provide deeper insight into the transduction of collective or universal being to individual consciousness and experience. The collected inertia in a certain area of space from a spinning electromagnetic field creates observable mass.
The brain-mind problem was previously known as the mind-body problem and by extension mind-matter. How the mind relates to the brain has classically been discussed in terms of Monism and Dualism -- that the mind and brain are one, or that the mind and brain are separate. It has long been suggested that the brain functions as a sort of transducer from the universal to the particular. If the "unconscious" is a magical powerhouse that speaks in symbols, our notion of the unconscious is also a symbol of the power of the atemporal primal field - absolute space, more fundamental than space-time. NeverMind is a euphemism for primordial non-conscious experience, dimensionless zero-point and its abstract motion or “spinergy.”

Human consciousness is just about the last surviving mystery. A mystery is a phenomenon that people don't know how to think about - yet. There have been other great mysteries: the mystery of the origin of the universe, the mystery of life and reproduction, the mystery of the design to be found in nature, the mysteries of time, space, and gravity. These were not just areas of scientific ignorance, but of utter bafflement and wonder. We do not yet have all the answers to any of the questions of cosmology and particle physics, molecular genetics and evolutionary theory, but we do know how to think about them ...With consciousness, however, we are still in a terrible muddle. Consciousness stands alone today as a topic that often leaves even the most sophisticated thinkers tongue-tied and confused. And, as with all of the earlier mysteries, there are many who insist -- and hope -- that there will never be a demystification of consciousness. ―Daniel C. Dennett, Consciousness Explained
“The only reality we can ever truly know is that of our perceptions, our own consciousness, while that consciousness, and thus our entire reality, is made of nothing but signs and symbols. Nothing but language. Even God requires language before conceiving the Universe. See Genesis: “In the beginning was the Word.” ―Alan Moore, Promethea, Vol. 5
“The very best quantum-foundational effort,” says Christopher Fuchs of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, “will be the one that can write a story — literally a story, all in plain words — so compelling and so masterful in its imagery that the mathematics of quantum mechanics in all its exact technical detail will fall out as a matter of course”. http://www.nature.com/news/physics-quantum-quest-1.13711
"In our metaphysics we declare our fantasies about the physical and its transcendence. A metaphysical statement can be seen as a psychological fancy about the relationship between 'matter and spirit'. [...] The archetypal neuros is collective and affects all with the metaphysical affliction. Processing this affliction is individual, and this makes therapy a metaphysical commitment in which not only complexes but also feelings and ideas undergo a process and a change ". -- James Hillman, Senex and Puer
Dialogical Creativity and Dialogical Emergence
Scientific tales can be political or philosophical. Scientific and sound or hollow metaphysical ideas are not independent of their archetypal backgrounds which inform and shape them in the minds and biased interpretations of their authors. Even a psychological fancy is a self-consistent coherence – like a poem or work of art – perhaps a stopgap on the way to more rational thought.
To love such a psychological fancy requires a certain suspension of logic, disbelief, and even confirmation bias. We are still forced to speculate about our origins and destination in a logically credible, probabilistic style. Existential reality lies beyond facile solutions framed within the limiting scope of our human resources to learn and communicate. Our narratives address evolutionary, developmental, and functional emergence. Intelligence emerges with symbolic language.
Master narratives provide collectivities with a coherent vision of their history and a sense of homogeneity. Heisenberg said, “Science is rooted in conversations,” and in doubt and uncertainty. In What is Life?, Schrödinger claimed organisms feed on negative entropy and that consciousness is absolutely fundamental.
Arguably, quantum brain is metaphysical in that it bears on Kant’s categories of God, freedom, and immortality – at least in its implications. He also suggests all human knowledge begins with intuitions, proceeds to concepts, and ends with ideas. All knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds toward understanding, and ends with reason.
Such arguments are summarized in philosophical notions of Panprotopsychism and Panexperientialism, which describe emergence of primal non-conscious processes. Panprotopsyhism suggests proto-consciousness may exist in the universe as a “fundamental property” without depending at all on anything physical.
This canon suggests, by focusing on experience rather than mentality, panexperientialism avoids some of the traditional objections to panpsychism. Absolute space is the noumenal source of phenomenal consciousness, a fundamental quality, and Mind is a higher order hyperspace field outside brain's EM field. Fundamental proto-consciousness finds more particular expression when matter comes together in a certain way.
Between Dialogue & Dogma
Real science can arise from individual or collective environments, distilling the essential from “absolute knowledge” of the unconscious. In that sense, we can hardly be optimistic that actual insight will result, yet somehow it has throughout the history of science, even though some solutions are provisional.
Meta-artist Roy Ascott describes the process: “Within the matrix that integrates questions of society, the self, materiality, and consciousness there is a kind of five axes involved in amplifying thought (concept development); sharing consciousness (collaborative processes); seeding structures (self-organising systems); making metaphors (knowledge navigation); constructing identities (self-creation).”
Metaphysical ideas are by definition ‘beyond physics’, but not separate from their roots in mind-dependent ideas and philosophy. Marie-Louise von Franz said, “There is therefore no concept fundamental to modern physics that is not in one degree or another a differentiated form of some primordial archetypal idea" ( Projection and Recollection in Jungian Psychology). Ideas about mind and consciousness are currently firmly entrenched in this category. What has been undemonstrable in the past may not remain so in the future.
Debriding the hidden forces of their archetypal projections remains a challenge at the leading edge. Essence, by its very nature, remains stubbornly intangible, unknown, and unseen. Form, on the other hand, requires only ingenuity, engineering, and due diligence. The concept of ‘quantum brain’ looks the part, but can it play the part? Is it coherent or incoherent?
Mantak Chia notes:
Consciousness defines our existence and reality. But how does the brain generate thoughts and feelings? Most explanations portray the brain as a computer, with nerve cells (“neurons”) and their synaptic connections acting as simple switches, or “bits” which interact in complex ways. In this view consciousness is said to “emerge” as a novel property of complex interactions among neurons, as hurricanes and candle flames emerge from complex interactions among gas and dust molecules. However this approach fails to explain why we have feelings and awareness, an “inner life”. So we don’t know how the brain produces consciousness.
We also don’t know if our conscious perceptions accurately portray the external world, or if we all have similar pictures of what lies outside our conscious minds. In fact, the fundamental nature of reality remains as mysterious as the mechanism for our conscious perceptions.
When narrative precedes the science skeptics will scoff and relegate it to the “nomenclature of belief” about ‘designer consciousness’. Or, though science is enamored with the physical brain, they ignore it entirely or relegate it to the heap of pop physics and consciousness books that few scientists take seriously.
If it continues building traction, it might rewrite the metanarrative of physics -- the Holy Grail of paradigm shift -- much to the chagrin of the old guard. Is it rising from a subcategory of theory and experimentation – ideas about ideas -- toward fundamental laws? We can paint broad strokes with narratives, which must ultimately be backed by hard science of experimental results. Yet, sometimes even concrete evidence is not recognized, or imply ignored, still labeled as dubious, delusional, and flawed. Such is the case for recent experiments to detect spin-mediated consciousness.
Specialization can differentiate the content of reality while not advancing the process of defining pre-form thingness. It can miss the essential penetration, activation and transformation of human awareness and experience, which even physics informs us is profoundly and irreversibly subjective. Knowledge begins with experience, but does not arise from it. Particularizing only helps us slice-and-dice the known. Critically, essentials, are not really touched in the process. Transformation is qualitative change.
Evolving a master narrative involving consciousness studies, quantum brain, torsion fields, or zero point takes place in a largely academic conditioned environment. No matter what we call it, there is a fundamental difference from consciousness that informs matter, or mind that emerges from dynamic physical form.
It spawns many essentially different ideas, despite their apparent kinship. Does conscious awareness naturally emerge from complex structure or does it arise a priori, emerging in a co-extensive way with matter? The former models quantum brain theory, while the later reflects the primordial nature of pre-spacetime.
In neuroscience, quantum brain dynamics (QBD) is a hypothesis to explain the function of the brain within the framework of quantum field theory. In The Quantum Brain (2002), Jeffrey Satinover reviews the convergence of brain science, biological computation and quantum physics, and what it implies about our minds, our selves, our future, even God. His is the world of neural nets, computing, cellular automata, genetic algorithms, artificial intelligence, neurobiology, artificial intelligence, and some basic philosophy of mind problems. He contends the brain amplifies quantum phenomena to produce free will.
Some narratives come from more credible sources than others. This area has come a long way from its origins in “ether physics” but sentiments within conservative academic communities remain skeptical. Because it has been labeled a ‘forbidden topic’ in some arenas has not deterred its exploration within frontier science. The aspects which withstand scrutiny may be embraced, while those that do not are relegated to the dustbin of failed ideas.
Faced with Mystery we tend to reach or overreach for answers to our existential dilemma – to fill in the blanks in the nature of reality. They are continually reiterated and stabilized constructions which tend to mask particularity and bias behind universalized representations of objective truth. They can have a homogenizing as well as exclusionary potential.
Preconscious Vacuum Potential
We're learning more and more about the pre-conscious nature of the medical and psychological unconscious, as well as the group mind of trends and -isms that go on beyond our normal background reality. How can we increase connectivity/coupling between the atom/molecule level reality and the vacuum level of reality?
This is a question posed by Tiller, among others who propose theories. He suggests we delve beneath the pop buzzword of zero-point field to the enormity of latent energy in the vacuum reality beyond normal reality. He suggests we are are "emotional, mental, and spiritual", echoing qabalistic and theosophical notions, as well as other wisdom traditions. Others, including physicist Claude Swanson, Gary Schwartz, and Leon Maurer echo these sentiments that non-consciousness is co-extensive with Absolute Space. The infinite angular spin momentum or potential energy of the absolute zero-point of eternal unconditioned space is a beginingless and endless plenum, empty of all fields and forms.
This abstract motion of the angular spin momentum force of absolute ZP space
must necessarily cyclically rotate, both clockwise and counter clockwise, at infinite
velocities on infinite axes of every potentially spherical absolute zero-point. … To maintain its cycles of continuous motion, any parallel spin of such opposite
rotation must follow an endless and beginningless spiral vortex double helix Mobius
Klein path in both angular directions. (Maurer)
Is torsion beyond space and time, or is it simply twisted space-time? The answer is 'yes', depending on level of observation. Hu and Wu postulate a spin-mediated theory of consciousness in which "consciousness is intrinsically connected to quantum mechanical spin since said spin is embedded in the microscopic structure of spacetime and may be more fundamental than spacetime itself. Thus, we theorize that consciousness emerges quantum mechanically from the collective dynamics of "protopsychic" spins under the influence of spacetime dynamics. That is, spin is the "pixel" of mind. The unity of mind is achieved by quantum entanglement of the mind-pixels." The Persinger Group produced experiential evidence of such effects, published in Journal of Consciousness Exploration & Research, Vol. IV, Issue 1 (2013).
"Never Mind" becomes a euphemism for the one mind or (potential) consciousness that seems to emanate from this timeless domain of absolute space. Researchers such as Swanson call such processes 'Life Force', and describe its dynamics in energetic terms of control and communication channels involving frequencies of radiation between DNA, molecules and cells. Mae-Wan Ho concurs. Coherent biophotons function in a laser-like manner to regulate mindbody coordination. Such work bears on notions of the nature of life and consciousness which have been persistently elusive in both biology and physics models.
There is a continuous shift in the languaging of notions about consciousness, the mindfield, quantum brain, holographic mind, and negentropy. Words, concepts and theories map the footprints of our crystallizing intuition, but descriptors come into and fall out of fashion. The dialogical edge has dropped down another level to the pre-quantum world, to a principle underlying those of quantum mechanics. First discovered by Tesla, what were called scalar waves are now known by their Russian label as torsion waves – unconditioned pre-cosmic harmonic oscillations of the stress energy tensor of the vacuum. Their spiraling nature is simply an impulse of momentum throughout the physical vacuum, without electromagnetic qualities.
The all-pervasive sea of quantum energy, discovered in the 20th century, remains arguably the most exciting frontier of the 21st century, both in terms of pure science as well as energy extraction and engineering. The jiggling of subatomic particles is attributed to the zero point field, the virtual photon flux that occurs between the dipole and the vacuum.
Virtual particles are not stable enough to remain in manifestation yet they have tangible effects -- a frictionless field of potentiality with spinning effects with emissions. Can it be that absolute space has no metric because it is a BEC (Bose-Einstein Condensate)? Is the physical universe then is completely contained, energetically and informationally, in the infinite spin momentum (spinergy) of the absolute space?
Randomly virtual photons jump back and forth between the zero point field and our physical world. They collide with and are absorbed by subatomic particles that will be excited into a higher energy state. After nanoseconds the energy is released again by means of another virtual photon that returns to the zero point field. The photon is called a virtual photon since it comes and goes from the zero point field and is ephemeral in the material world. It is only used in the energy exchange between the zero point field and the material world.
Photons and the variety of elementary particles seemingly come into our physical reality from nowhere at all. They make their appearance in our physical reality for only thousandths or millionths of a second to disappear once again into the void. These forms of ‘mystical’ particles were called virtual particles since they were not stable enough to stay around in our reality. The zero point field is a quantum foam of virtual particles and photons.
Such modeling may have implications for new computer brain language that allows computers to learn, and to read human thoughts by using brain-machine interface, and the ethical implications that raises. Our neural synapses will soon work as biochemical nano-devices to transfer information energy from electrical to biochemical signals.
For this discussion, the Vacuum/ZPF is being defined as "the locus of a vast energy field that is neither classically electromagnetic nor gravitational, nor yet nuclear in nature. Instead, it is the originating source of the known electromagnetic, gravitational, and nuclear forces and fields. It is the originating source of matter itself."
The active vacuum is active spacetime. The vacuum potential is the pervasive source of all matter/energy or “massergy,” rooted in the cosmic acceleration. Its first observable manifestion is photonic and biophotonic light. A photon is composed of both spatial and time-energy, even though it is massless. The vacuum potential is raw, untranslated pre-spacetime. Massergy (dynamic structure) is rooted in the unfolding time-charged potential of electromagnetic fields.
The pure vacuum potential, without its zero-point fluctuations decomposes into a harmonic set of bidirectional longitudinal EM phase conjugate wave pairs. Thus EM energy flows between the imaginary plane of time domain and manifest 3-space when the four-fold symmetry is broken with any dipolarity or potential, such as longitudinal or scalar (time) polarization of the photon.
Engineering applications in zero-point energy extraction, torsion field generators, or antigravity are beyond the remit of this article, which focuses on the ontology and epistemology of the source field in relation to human energy systems. Separating legitimate theoretical ideas from pseudoscience requires stripping the theory down to bare bones and resisting wild speculations -- the imaginative from the purely fantastical. Shaking off the legacy of fanciful ether theory has not been easy in this research niche.
The information-theory term, negentropy is used less and less as a buzzword in favor of 'torsion field' models in energy medicine and consciousness studies. The unity of being that used to be attributed to notions of holographic reality and quantum processes is more and more assigned to the non-observable but inferred effects of the torsion field, previously known as the scalar field underlying virtual vacuum and virtual photon flux.
Leading theories of consciousness (Persinger group, 2013; Hu and Wu, 2013) now model spin as a generator of 'consciousness'. There seems to be an identity between that torque which leads to particle production and the fundamental nature of the torsion field. At least this is the hypothesis embraced within the segment of complementary medicine known as scientifically-based energy medicine. If DNA is a torsion-field antenna it functions as a transducer of that field, precipitating life through bioacoustics and biophotonics.
Matti Pitkanin summarizes Persinger’s group reports related to EEG, magnetic fields, photon emission from the brain, and macroscopic quantum coherence. The findings provide support of Hu and Wu’s proposal that nerve pulse activity could induce spin flips of spin networks assignable to cell membranes. He further suggests that “lipids of the two layers of the cell membrane are accompanied by dark protons which arrange themselves to dark protonic strings defining a dark analog of DNA double strand.”
Entropy is a concept from thermodynamics and self-organizing complexity of coupled cycles in dissipative or coherent structures. Negentropy or negative entropy (also syntropy, extropy or entaxy) is defined in a living system as "the entropy that it exports to keep its own entropy low; it lies at the intersection of entropy and life." Schrödinger introduced the concept of 'negative entropy' in What is Life? (1944).
Léon Brillouin shortened the phrase to negentropy, to describe how a living system imports negentropy and stores it. Albert Szent-Györgyi (1974) suggested replacing that term with syntropy, working toward a unified theory of biology and physics. Buckminster Fuller tried to popularize this usage, but negentropy remains common, particularly in information theory and the cosmological holographic principle (Susskind).
Physics describes the interrelationship of chaos and order as field relationships, while chaos theory describes nature's own methods of creation and self-assembly. Entropy is the tendency for any closed part of the universe to expand at the expense of order. It is a measure of randomness and disorder -- chaos. Negentropy is the generative force of the universe. Negentropy (emergent order from chaos) is a nonlinear higher order system, a dynamically creative ordering information.
Negentropy, like art, is ‘in-form-ative.' It is related to mutual information exchange. Information is embodied in the fractal nature of imagery and symbols, which compress the informational content of the whole. Creativity is an emergent phenomenon patterned by strange attractors, which govern the complexity of information in dynamic flow.
Negentropy is the degree of order, or function of a state.
That which was formerly unmanifest comes into being. Negentropy governs the spontaneous transmission and direction of flow of information among systems. The qualities of that information are timeless. It is synergistic in that what was formerly unconnected becomes so, creating something wholly optimal and new – futuristic.
In cybernetics, a meaningful interpretation of negentropy is a measurement of the complexity of a physical structure in which quantities of energy are invested, e.g., buildings, works, technical devices, and organisms which become more complex by feeding not on energy but on negentropy.
Information maps onto space as a higher order specification. Yet information is not static, but dynamic. Rotating torsion fields surround everything, up to planets, galaxies and black holes. Torsion fields interact with each other, changing and creating new torsion fields. The torsion field is imperceivable until disturbed. Life manifests from the continuous subtle interaction of the intrinsic spinning waves of the torsion field.
Torsion fields propagate not only in the future but in the past as well. They may transmit information without transmitting energy. Torsion fields are generated by spin or by angular momentum, and right or left spin orientation. The superposition of torsion fields is generated by the atomic and nuclear spins of each molecule and the intensity of torsion fields in the space surrounding the molecule as a whole.
Torsion fields are a huge flow of information to form a general boundless system, in which the instantaneous velocity of propagation, the concept of "time", does not exist. The information of torsion fields determines the sequence according to which matrix protein (RNA) builds an amino acid. Some research suggests that the unique properties of torsion fields actually generate consciousness and have compelling links to various nonlocal, psi or parapsychological phenomena, often attributed to entanglement.
In the vacuum, torsion fields are the quantum spin of empty space -- the large-scale coherent effects of the spin of the particles in the virtual sea. According to Murad, Matveeko claimed that the torsion field is identical to the transverse spin polarization of the physical vacuum and a gravitational field is identical to the longitudinal spin polarization of the physical vacuum.
The universal torsion field is a dynamic medium. From electrons to galaxies, torsion is produced by the spin of mass. Torsion fields influence spin states. Torsion waves emanate from all matter and all atoms are torsion wave generators. Torsion fields are scalar, operating independently of direction. They also have the nonlocal property of holographically operating throughout the entire universe irrespective of time or distance.
Information can be propagated and retrieved from the torsion field. The geometry of the physical vacuum is multi-dimensional. Information is a dimension in itself, related to consciousness. The torsion of the geometry of absolute parallelism generates torsion fields. This is not electromagnetic or gravitational energy, but a spiralling, non-hertzian, electromagnetic wave. The collected inertia in a certain area of space from a spinning electromagnetic field creates an effect that we observe as mass.
While ‘spin’ field is used synonymously with the term torsion much depends on the paradigm from which one approaches the virtual vacuum. Orthodox QM simply ignores and nullifies the effect. It has been modeled as a simple annihilation of matter-antimatter pairs as a bubbling foam in Dirac's quantum mechanics. Sakharov proposed that empty space was filled with virtual particles. It also has been modeled by the Russians and heterodox western scientists as a physical vacuum theory where the vacuum consists of spinors, a shorthand notation for tensors that possess an electric, magnetic, gravitic and spin field.
It helps to distinguish the zero-point field from the physical vacuum. The homogeneous vacuum displays inhomogenous anomalies and varies as a function of disturbances or the influence of ambient electric and magnetic fields. Some Russian physicists contend that only the spin or torsion field could support faster-than-light (FTL) phenomena and nonlocal interactions.
Torsion is different from these other three fields that could have spherical symmetry. Torsion could be right-handed or left-handed and is based upon a cylindrical field and can be created by large accumulations of electricity and rotation of a body that if above a certain speed, would enhance the torsion field. Torsion can lead to other phenomenon including frame dragging.
Murad describes how frame dragging occurs when a rod is inserted concentrically inside of a cylinder and has no physical contact with that body. If the rod is suddenly removed, the cylinder will also move or is dragged along with the rod. Other examples exist regarding rotational bodies that would also influence adjacent rotating bodies due to the interaction of one spin field interacting with another.
Tom Bearden described the fundamental torsion wave within the electromagnetic wave. This wave remains when two opposing electromagnetic fields interfere, cancelling out each other’s electrical and magnetic field components. The result is a longitudinal wave that vibrates in the same direction in which it travels.
Kozyrev noticed that all physical objects can absorb as well as emit torsion waves. By shaking physical objects, vibrating and altering them, through heating or cooling, they generate measurable torsion waves. Even displacing an object generates a measurable torsion wave. Every movement, from the vibrations of an atom to the orbit time of our planets, leaves its mark on the ether in the form of torsion waves.
These operations are characterized by a variety of behaviors which have been described conceptually, experimentally and mathematically as functions of spin polarity, angular momentum and weighted waveform vector velocities. For example, unlike electromagnetism, where analogous charges repel and opposite charges attract, in torsion fields spins polarized in the same direction attract, and spins polarized in the opposite direction repulse. The physical vacuum can manifest as three types of physical vacuum polarization, the charge, the mass, and the spin.
On the Nature of the Vacuum and Virtual Subspace Entities
Quantum field theory (QFT) presumes the vacuum ground state is not completely empty, but seethes with impermanent virtual particles and fields. There are at least two theories that describe the behavior and characteristics of the physical vacuum and the ZPE at the atomic or sub-atomic level, the quantum vacuum field:
QED: The quantum electrodynamics (QED) model of charged particles with the electromagnetic field is consistent with special relativity. At the atomic level, the QED model proposes that, because of the high inherent energy density within the vacuum, some of this energy can be temporarily converted to mass. The QED model maintains that the zero-point energy reveals its existence through the effects of sub-atomic virtual particles. ZPE permits short-lived particle/antiparticle pairs to form and almost immediately annihilate each other. These particle/antiparticle pairs are called virtual particles.
QED describes mathematically both interactions of light with matter and those of charged particles with one another. An atomic particle such as a proton or electron, even when entirely alone in a vacuum at absolute zero, is continually emitting and absorbing these virtual particles from the vacuum -- a virtual particle cloud. The absorption and emission of these virtual particles also causes the electron's "jitter motion" in a vacuum at absolute zero. As such, this jittering, or Zitterbewegung, as it is officially called, constitutes evidence for the existence of virtual particles and the ZPE of the vacuum.
There is a cloud of virtual particles around the "bare" electron interacting with it. When a full quantum increase in the vacuum energy density occurs, the strength of the charge increases. With a higher charge for the "point-like entity" of the electron, we expect that the size of the particle cloud increases because of stronger vacuum polarization and a more energetic Zitterbewegung.
SED: The stochastic electro-dynamics SED approach affirms that the ZPE exists as electromagnetic fields or waves whose effects explain the observed phenomena equally well. SED treats quantum field-particle interactions like classical dynamics (Puthoff, 1987). In the SED approach, the vacuum at the atomic or sub-atomic level may be considered inherently comprised of a turbulent sea of randomly fluctuating electro-magnetic fields or waves. Stochastic resonance is produced by random stimuli.
These waves exist at all wavelengths and are homogeneous and isotropic at the macro-level, which means they have the same properties uniformly in every direction throughout the whole cosmos. In the SED explanation, the Zitterbewegung is accounted for by the random fluctuations of the ZPF, or waves, as they impact upon the electron and jiggle it around.
Because light waves are an electromagnetic phenomenon, their motion through space is affected by the electric and magnetic properties of the vacuum, namely the permittivity and permeability. The effect of vacuum fluctuations on electron coherence is known: the time-varying electromagnetic field produces a time-varying Aharonov-Bohm phase, a phase-shift illustrated by interference experiments. If more than philosophical, it describes
- whether potentials are "physical" or just a convenient tool for calculating force fields;
- whether action principles are fundamental;
- the principle of locality.
The Unified Field: Quest for the Holy Grail
The Copenhagen Interpretation (CI) is the standard model of quantum physics because of its ability to make predictions from a real-world experimental basis. In this theory, light is both a particle and a wave and so is everything else. Uncertainty rules supreme since we cannot simultaneously calculate both position and velocity of subatomic operators, but only probabilities.
Other coherent yet flawed theories have been less successful in this and other regards, some being entirely nontestable. All agree that light is a primary manifestation of the engine of the cosmos. Meanwhile, subatomic factors with many strange properties have proliferated into the “particle zoo.”
Still, the search for undiscovered particles or energies that could point toward unification continues. Many attempts have been made to fit all observations into one ‘container’ that describes everything from the macro- to the microcosmic, down into the virtualities of subspace. Abstract models, flawed inventions or approximations are not physical explanations. Clarity remains elusive and many alternative and idiosyncratic theories have arisen. Theories are often patched up with unnecessary complications.
In the 1960s, Buckminster Fuller proposed a geometric philosophy of a crystalline vacuum based on nature he called Synergetics. His notions of tensegrity have applications in classical and quantum physics, as well as biophysics. He described the crystalline vacuum of cosmic space with the pre-geometrical properties of Cosmic Zero in his model of the Vector Equilibrium Matrix.
Echoing Fuller, in 2013, physicists reported the discovery of a jewel-like geometric object at the heart of matter that dramatically simplifies calculations of particle interactions. It challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental components of reality. They claim, “The new geometric version of quantum field theory could also facilitate the search for a theory of quantum gravity that would seamlessly connect the large- and small-scale pictures of the universe.” (Wolchover)
In keeping with this idea, the new geometric approach to particle interactions removes locality and unitarity from its starting assumptions. The amplituhedron is not built out of space-time and probabilities; these properties merely arise as consequences of the jewel’s geometry. The usual picture of space and time, and particles moving around in them, is a construct.
This model is tied to string theory, but, have they actually found it? String theory is an extension of the Kaluza-Klein theory -- which is based on the fundamental, spinergy-generated, fractal involutional topological geometry.
As we understand it, the amplituhedron is a geometric consequence of solving Yang-Mills in 4-D, in lieu of adding an increasingly chaotic amount of Feynman diagrams, due to superconformal invariance, but they haven't seen it. Therefore, it remains a model at this point – a version of twistors. They hope to find another shape similar but more profound that does answer all things (including gravity and time).
The ‘80s ushered in the era of chaos theory, complexity, dynamics and self-organization, which may ultimately play into the final solutions. Every theory is based in certain fundamental assumptions and postulates about how nature works. They may be coherent within themselves, but not among themselves, where they can be mutually exclusive. But the Holy Grail theory remains hidden in the dealer’s hand.
Leading contenders in New Physics include the following: Bohm created a holographic concept, Susskind a ‘stringy’ Holographic Principle, Deutsch a variation on Many Worlds (MWI), and Cramer a Transactional Interpretation (TI). Sarfatti long ago proposed postquantum backaction, while Penrose proposes a twistor space. Pitkanin describes a TGY physics based on world sheets. Masreliez suggests a Scale Expanding Cosmos (SEC), with a uniform scale invariant expansion for the whole spacetime manifold of the universe.
Greene remains the main proponent of String Theory. It has lots of popular appeal but many theoretical inconsistencies, including a proliferation of dimensions and multiple solutions. Since it makes no testable predictions, it is accused of being more of a philosophy than a science. But Kanno et al (2002) describe how “quasi-scalar-tensor gravity works as a hologram at low energy in the sense that the bulk geometry can be reconstructed from the solution of quasi-scalar-tensor gravity.”
Witten unified the five solutions of strings in M-Theory. Still, answers about the true nature of Reality are unlikely to come from a new mathematical model. It should be the other way around: first find what you think might be the solution to a problem, then express it as a mathematical model, then test it. The coherent narrative should follow.
Nefediev uses QCD (quantum chromodynamics) bubbles to describe properties of the vacuum and propagation of quarks and mesonic states in two- and four-dimensional models. In QCD the vacuum is full of quark and gluon condensates with negative energy. Electrogravitics theory (Valone) is a way of modeling gravity as a matter of time with emergent energy science.
Thomas Bearden generated a great deal of interest in the field potential. Most quantum views of space pertain to a fixed instant of time, but Bearden brings [negative] time back into the equation in his experimental models and engineering of the vacuum.
QFT models the fabric of space as tiny oscillating fields interacting with one another, reconciling quantum mechanics with special relativity. Elementary particles, local excitations of the vacuum, are point-like objects of zero intrinsic size. They appear smeared over a region of space due to quantum effects, but their description is written as mathematical points. Together, space, time, and energy form a manifold of functional quantum space.
Comings and Miller (2005) have also proposed the void is a plenum in the Creative Physics ether model. The nature of embodiment is light. Another viable model of the Bivacuum comes from Kaivarainen. The quantum vacuum is a dynamic massless scalar field. A scalar is a vector characterized by magnitude and time. Scalar waves (virtual particle flux wave) in the virtual state massless charge flux do not breach the quantum level to become observable, yet they are real. They are harmonic oscillations of the stress energy tensor of the vacuum. They cross the threshold of manifestation only briefly before they vanish. In the vacuum state everything is disintegrated, but highly dynamic. The vacuum is not an emptiness filled with massless charge, rather, it IS identically massless charge (disintegrated dynamicism). Though no real particles are present, it is a plenum, not an emptiness. It is also pure, undifferentiated action.A curious thing has happened along the way to a Theory of Everything, which is that physics is taking a more and more mystical attitude in its descriptors of what remains essentially a great Mystery. This mystery is compounded when we attempt to apply physics theories to biological organisms, including ourselves – the realm of biophysics.
Cosmic Crystalline Vacuum
Buckminster Fuller spoke in quasi-mystical tones rhapsodizing about his sublime geometries, which bear a suspicious resemblance to zero-point. Jitterbugging Vector Equilibrium Matrix is not structure but a system, the prime nucleated system. V.E. makes conceptual models of 4th, 5th and 5th dimensional omniexperience possible, using tetrahedroning. A current example of this is CDT theory, a triangular universe of 4-dimensional tetrahedrons
Equilibrium between + and is Zero. V.E. is the true zero reference of the energetic mathematics. It is cosmic zero.Zero pulsation in the V.E. is a metaphorm of eternity and God: the zero-phase of conceptual integrity inherent in the + and - asymmetries. V.E. is important because all the nuclear tendencies to implosion and explosion are reversible and always in exact balance. V.E. is the anywhere, anywhen, eternally regenerative, event inceptioning and evolutionary accommodation that is never seen in any experience.
This metaphorm (V.E.) represents the self's initial real-I-zation both inwardly and outwardly from the beginning of being "betweenness"; maximum inbetweenness. Push/pull; convergence/divergence; gravity/radiation.At zero-point, waves pass through waves without interfering with one another. Vectoral phase or zone of neutral resonance occurs between outwardly pushing wave propagation and inwardly pulling gravitational coherence.
Emptiness at the Center: all 4 planes of all 8 tetrahedra are congruent in the four visible planes passing through a common V.E. center, the cosmic terminal condition and nature's most economical lines of energy travel..The dynamic activity connected with the drive to know, to penetrate, to illumine, culminates in a stillness, silence, cessation of all effort which itself dissolves in the tranquility of total negation. 0 = 2. It is only by virtue of the fact that it is Naught. All form and power are latent in the Void. Haramein and Rauscher (2005) have employed this cuboctahdron to model all of creation.
The Crown of Creation
There is a virtual replica (VR) of all matter, including living organisms, in the vacuum. Resonance and oscillation is accompanied by modulation of virtual particle/antiparticle pressure waves. We come from, are sustained by and are returning to the light of our mass, radiant energy. It is the mass-free, force-free form that energy takes in space before its interaction with mass creates force.
The most we can say about our so-called physical existence is that we are standing wavefronts in spacetime. To truly live from that place is to identify ultimately with a superluminal massless body of light, the Diamond Body. That is the true nature of the vehicle of our consciousness, our essence.
Virtual particles are the unseen energetic medium, the dynamic energy matrix of the Universe, riddled with virtual pressure waves. Bidirectional EM wavepairs are the hidden scalar potential. These infolded electrodynamics describe subspace or higher dimensions, depending on how you model it mathematically.
Kozyrev described spinning or twisting “torsion fields” and/or “torsion waves” as the spiraling flow of “time energy. Lt. Col. Tom Bearden, calls them “scalar waves.” Their spiraling nature is simply an impulse of momentum that travels through the medium of the aether/ZPE/physical vacuum, without electromagnetic qualities.
Torsion fields, like gravity or electromagnetism, are capable of moving from one place to another in the Universe at “superluminal” speeds, meaning that they far exceed the speed of light. An impulse that moves directly through the “fabric of space-time”, travels at super-luminal velocities and is separate from gravity or electromagnetism, is a significant breakthrough in physics – one that demands that a “physical vacuum”, “zero-point energy” or “aether” must really exist.
The active vacuum is active spacetime. The vacuum potential is the pervasive source of all matter/energy or “massergy,” rooted in the cosmic acceleration. Its first observable manifestation is photonic and biophotonic Light. A photon is composed of both spatial and time-energy, even though it is massless. The vacuum potential is raw, untranslated spacetime. Massergy (dynamic structure) is rooted in the unfolding time-charged potential of electromagnetic fields.
The pure vacuum potential, without its zero-point fluctuations decomposes into a harmonic set of bidirectional longitudinal EM phase conjugate wave pairs. Thus EM energy flows between the imaginary plane of time domain and manifest 3-space when the four-fold symmetry is broken with any dipolarity or potential, such as longitudinal or scalar (time) polarization of the photon. http://virtualphysics.50megs.com/whats_new.html

Panprotopsychism is the view that fundamental physical entities are proto-conscious. http://consc.net/papers/panpsychism.pdf
Panexperientialism or panprotopsychism are related concepts. By focusing on experience rather than mentality, panexperientialism can avoid some of the traditional objections to panpsychism.
2 Absolute space is the noumenal source of phenomenal consciousness
1 Consciousness is a fundamental quality of Absolute Space
1 Mind is a higher order hyperspace field outside brain's EM field
2 Consciousness as underlying force of physics
1 Sensitivity is the sole primordial Absolute
Panexperientialism is not to be confused with panpsychism; the latter holds that minds are more ubiquitous in nature than we might think, while the former only holds that some form of subjective experience is more ubiquitous than we think. The 'ubiquitous' subjective experience posited by panexperientialism need not be nestled in thinking, cognizing minds.
Panprotopsychism can be roughly presented as the claim that the microphysical fundamental entities of the actual world, once properly related to each other, give rise to all sort of "physical entities" and due to its intrinsic properties also to consciousness. (Chalmers) http://mindingthebrain.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/ppoi.pdf
the idea that consciousness may exist in the universe without depending at all on anything physical (i.e., it is a "fundamental property" of the universe, like gravity); and further, that it may just find more particular expression when matter comes together in a certain way. Amongst other things, Chalmers says that we are justified in believing that even crude information-processing systems, like thermostats, may be conscious.
