Quantum entanglement is characteristic of the mind

In the material world, randomness is always tempered by an underlying determinism. From ocean waves to landscape formations, the combination of predictability with arbitrary elements takes shape as a fractal structure. Surprisingly, the characteristics of a fractal structure can also be recognized in the temporal rhythm of mental phenomena. Thus, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that cognitive processes obey the laws of quantum mechanics and the mind forms resonance and interference analog to material systems. Social unrest was modeled as a coherent energy transmission of a social laser.

Entanglement is a phenomenon where making an observation on one part of the system instantaneously affects the state in another part of the system, even if the respective systems are separated by space-like distances. This bizarre instantaneous mutual determination was confirmed recently. Although the wave function of entangled sister particles cannot be decomposed into separate subsystems, the common wave function spreads out over space and leads to quantum entanglement, the instantaneous behavior of the common wave-function. The same phenomenon transpires in emotional animals over conceptual distance, or over time. For example, in word association experiments entanglement activates associative target words simultaneously, allowing concept combinations to be modeled by quantum theory.

Entanglement is more common than we realize. Entanglement is a perceived social power difference, which causes one partner to feel more relaxed than the other partner. Thus, entanglement lends excess power to the powerful and creates boundaries and limitations for people on the inferior side of the relationships. Therefore, social entanglement has a long-term role in making social structure uneven. For example, sexual harassment and abuse is demeaning and degrading for the victim. Because socially uneven relationship can be reversed by new information, even years later, revelations of past sexual or social misconduct is greatly empowering for victims.

One person can even form entanglement between two temporal events! In the mind, nonlocality includes fictions time travel to the past that updates comprehension. The moment of recognition miraculously expands understanding in time, pushing it into the past and the future. In this way, childhood memories turn into adult understanding in the mind of the adult. Analogous to the quantum mechanics particle experiment, a cemented mental reality can be completely overturned by new information. When we discover a secret, our comprehension expands to the past, the time of the first experience. This timelessness means that understanding can be influenced from great temporal expanses. Ideas in the hidden corners of the mind can be manipulated by information years or even decades later.

  1. Ahhhh. Now you're getting into my world. As an introverted technician with OCD tendencies, I spend a lot of time in my own mind finding solutions to problems I see or questions I come up with. I use Structure (habits and belief) to keep the OCD from taking over. I have some experience at consciously creating habits, rebuilding belief systems, and how they interact. I am also scientifically oriented enough to grasp the concept of things like string theory and quantum mechanics. It does look like quantum mechanics is describing a mind (at least if it is anything that resembles mine). I have noted that the description of sub atomic particles suspending their probability wave form when we observe them, and it's similarity to what happens when I "collapse the wave function" into my observation of reality. Just as the particle returns to it's wave form after observation, I do too when rebuilding my belief system. I have also noted as soon as I "collapse the wave function" into my new observation of reality, my habits change to support this new reality in a way that is similar to "entanglement". When my habits no longer support my reality I go back and try again. so it works both ways.

    1. What a great self-relation or correlation of the QM of your working memory of mind to the changing entanglement of your OCD QM!? :)

    2. Thank you for sharing! It is commendable how you are turning your observation of your condition into an understanding to manage your OCD! Good luck with your journey!
