Quantum Cooperation

nj260011fig2One of the biggest challenges faced by quantum physicists today is understanding how a distribution of possibilities leads to a definite measureable result. This situation is called the “collapse of the wavepacket,” or the measurement problem.

How does the indeterminacy (non-locality) of quantum physics generate the determinate (and local) results of Newtonian physics?

One of the greatest insights communicated by scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg is that “for something new to come into existence, previous things must coexist.” This means that quantum possibilities must form partnerships before something new and formal can emerge out of the cloudy state of non-locality.

The answer is that all possibilities represent real endeavors—because they lead to real results. For instance, in quantum field theory a virtual particle represents an endeavor with no physical effects in the spacetime arena. It is still an active principle on its own level (like an idea seeking to become an actuality). Passive principles would therefore be represented by the other possibilities or virtual particles within the given wavepacket, since they would represent the environment, sphere or lawful constraints put on the action of any particular virtual particle.

Swedenborg would propose that since these units of endeavor within a given wavepacket emerge from God’s infinite action and providence, they carry similar strivings, thus have a predisposition for uniting and creating some new corresponding and compounded particle.

There are some theoretical physicists who propose that quantum activity operates deep within the processes of human mental thought. This notion has some verity if we understand that our thought-ideas are non-material and very much like virtual particles and must cooperate to create a real physical action in the spacetime theater.

Simple scrutiny tells us that our mental ideas represent possibilities that must cooperate in order to create a formal and unified action in the physical world. Without this mental cooperation, no physical action results.

This cooperation has spiritual considerations since “love” is the only non-temporal and non-spatial force and striving that seeks to unite things.

    Hello Godguy, how small is our knowledge compared to EVERYTHING which exists in the COSMOS?

    Do we know 40%, 10$, 1%, 1E-04, 1E-120 of all existing things?

    And do we have a way to know that?

    Unless an atheist is capable of coming up with a reliable indication that we know almost everything, she cannot positively assert there is no God of any kind.

    I appreciate your blog.

    Friendly greetings from Europe.

      Yes. That is why I wrote my award winning book “Proving God” – to show that science and theology are ultimately the same thing. The new revelations of doctrine being given to the world are highly rational and lawful!

      Spiritually yours,
