Adopting Aristotle’s views resolves the “paradoxes” in quantum mechanics and consciousness

As it seems, the old Greek philosopher was right all along. Unfortunately, at some point in 1600 Western science abandoned its Aristotelian approach to reality and instead adopted the mechanistic, reductionist Cartesian view based on the ideas of RenĂ© Descartes, whose own work he famously summed up as “Divide each difficulty into as many parts … Read more Adopting Aristotle’s views resolves the “paradoxes” in quantum mechanics and consciousness

The (remarkable) intelligence of plants

I made a few posts in the past about the altruism of plants, as well as their apparent consciousness (affected by anesthesia) despite the fact that they do not have a nervous system. The article below describes additional experiments demonstrating that plants are apparently capable of a number of stunning feats that make them look … Read more The (remarkable) intelligence of plants

Consciousness is quantum, can be modulated with specific chemicals

Many readers are likely familiar with the theories of Roger Penrose on the topics of consciousness and how it relates to physics and even cosmology. He is perhaps the most vocal proponent of “quantum consciousness” theories, including his own theory known as “orchestrated objective reduction”. The topic of anesthetics and how they work has always … Read more Consciousness is quantum, can be modulated with specific chemicals

The brain can be revived hours after death, and without a body

I mentioned the idea of “suspended animation” on several of Danny Roddy’s podcasts and posted in a few threads that rat brains have been kept alive for days during experiments conducted in the early 1990s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspended_animation https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8281302 These experiments severely challenge our idea of what it means to be “dead” and suggest there is indeed … Read more The brain can be revived hours after death, and without a body
