06 – panpsychism, split-brains and dissolving the combination problem

Panpsychism is a philosophy which originates in ancient Buddhist and Hindu beliefs but has had a surge in interest with an empirical aspect in recent decades. More and more researchers in philosophy, neuroscience and physics are coming to the conclusion that matter cannot explain consciousness and we must reformulate theories to accommodate this. Either we … Continue reading 06 – panpsychism, split-brains and dissolving the combination problem

04 – Macro-Quantum-Entanglement to the nth degree…

The exploitability and applicability of Quantum Entanglement is now well established within the literature, lending to the idea that we are producing a real effect in the universe and not just a clever thought game or trick of the psyche. There remains however, an issue of scale. It still seems incredibly incoherent for us to … Continue reading 04 – Macro-Quantum-Entanglement to the nth degree…

03 – Quantum Internet to the nth degree…

Quantum computing and the quantum internet are technologies becoming increasingly close to mainstream use and integration in the near future, but what exactly is a quantum internet, and what would it mean for today's world? Here we explore the upper limits of the quantum internet by taking it to the nth degree. 2019 was a … Continue reading 03 – Quantum Internet to the nth degree…

02 – Quantum Principles: Entanglement

An important mechanism within the quantum world is that of entanglement. Entanglement and superposition are linked and the terms can often become confusing so here I delineate what is meant by the term "Quantum Entanglement". This will provide a base understanding of the mechanism, later easing the description of things like macro-entanglement and quantum computing. … Continue reading 02 – Quantum Principles: Entanglement

01 – Quantum Principles: Superposition

As this blog series progresses there will be many occasions where we take quantum phenomena to their theoretical and logical extremes. So to start off, I want to outline some of the key quantum principles and mechanisms that will be essential to truly grasping the following articles. First; quantum superposition. Most people will mention Schrödinger's … Continue reading 01 – Quantum Principles: Superposition
