Quantum entanglement is characteristic of the mind

By Thierry Dugnolle

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 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 analogue to material systems. Social unrest was modeled as a coherent energy transmission of a social laser by Andrei Khrennikov

Entanglement is a phenomenon where by 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 forms social power difference between people, and emotional animals. One of the partners is superior, whereas the other is inferior in the relationship, due to a difference in time perception. The dominant member in the entanglement feels the wealth of time, making him more relaxed. His entangled partner feels stressed and a failure. However, their socially uneven relationship can be reversed by new information, even years later. 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 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.
