Consciousness, Quantum Physics and Life

Podcast: The Quantum Mindcast

podcast2 Is the Universe a Giant Fractal?
Modern science propounds the view that the universe, in all its complexity, was created from simple starting conditions following some simple rules. But what if science has it the wrong way round? What if the universe only exists as far as our momentary experience of it, and it is our experience itself that is being […]

Blog The Three Polarizer Paradox: 5-Minute Quantum Physics
A tutorial on the “three polarizer paradox”. Actually the stuff we see in this tutorial won’t be all that paradoxical, just a little unexpected perhaps. The real “paradox” will emerge in the next tutorial when we look at photons. Nevertheless, we need to know how things look classically before we start messing about with semi-hypothetical […]

Blog What Is Meant By “Position”?
We are accustomed to thinking that physical objects have “positions” which we can come along and measure. We think of the position of a thing as being a property of the object and as existing to an infinite degree of accuracy, even though we never measure positions to an infinite degree of accuracy. But is […]

    do you plan to continue with the consciousness podcast sometime? I really enjoyed it , and I’m looking for ideas in this direction. the idea of turning the universe inside out , like the name of one of your episodes, is quite an appealing one, but it’s very hard to build a theory out of it. I watched peter russels “The Primacy of Consciousness” which have similar ideas but doesn’t seem to do much with it. also allen watts – a great speaker and a great interpreter of eastern philosophy, but still – no real concrete connection to modern physics. anyway, I will be very happy to ear the continuation of the podcast. weather you were able or not to connect the dots. you have a very elegant and intriguing way of podcasting.

      Thanks for the reminder! I had forgotten about this whole project :) Maybe I will continue it. I was thinking of starting again in some form, because it seems like my podcast comes across as a bit vague, and in my head it’s not really so vague …. Very hard to make a theory of physics out of it, for sure, but I can see a way forward at least. Anyway, glad you liked it!
