WHY SCHRODINGER'S CAT IS NOT PERPLEXED
Adrian Klein and Dr
Robert Neil Boyd PhD.
At the end of our last installment, concerned
with the essence of life phenomena, we pre-acknowledged
some of far-reaching consequences of the new approach, including
the refutation of Darwinian evolution, along with refutations
of many of the accompanying dogmas of Darwinism, such as
"survival of the fittest". (Survival of the Most
Harmonious, is more accurate.) Nevertheless, an accurate
understanding of the implications of this new and more accurate
paradigm, requires that a fundamental revision must occur,
regarding our notions about causality itself. Let's start
here by analyzing the topic of causality, as important to
the novel paradigmatic view we propose. The wide outreach
of this new paradigm, which coherently spans across many
interdisciplinary fields (perhaps all of them), can be hardly
As we know, Max Born's three assumptions regarding causality,
as proposed by 1949, which attempted to define causality
as a time-aligned chain of dependences, operating through
spatial contiguities, have today, little more than a historical
value. Later developments in Quantum physics clearly refuted
the concept that any sort of space-contact is required for
causal interactions. Quantum considerations extend the essence
of causality far beyond the descriptive regime of regular
sequences and correlations of natural phenomena., intrinsically
focusing on the "how", rather then the "why",
such serial connections would operate in nature.
Subsequently, collisions between different existentialist
and deterministic arguments led to sterile debates regarding
the actual prime originations of events. Causality, in QM,
has proved to remain a basically elusive factor, intractable
even to the most advanced explanatory attempts. Quantum
tenets have encouraged various proposals of probabilistic
causation. These proposals are often reflecting a poor understanding
of the deterministic variables actually involved in causal
relations, which are thus unfortunately reduced to a quite
chancy set of considerations. More elaborate theoretical
approaches have been proposed, which infer that interventional
probabilities are deriving from conditional probabilities,
for example, operating in Bayesian probability-based networks,
according to certain directed non-cyclic graphs. So far,
these kinds of proposals have led to even worse contradictions.
Eastern philosophy has proved to be not much more successful
in comprehensively defining causality than its western scientifically
correlated systems. For example, the Nyaya theory of causation
implies that, besides invariability and unconditionality,
a vectored orientation of causal chains is operating along
the entropic timeline, which recognizes at the same time,
accidental antecedents (Anyathasiddha), which are influencing
the probabilities of a given outcome. As in most western
concepts, in this kind of view of causality, causality depends
upon time orientability (though not all spacetimes are fundamentally
orientable). Only space-time intervals in a fused "space-time"
are invariant with respect to given reference systems, while
this fusion itself, is a highly controversial topic, from
the subquantum perspective.
Special relativity rejects considerations of any "instant
causal connection", as exceeding light velocity "constraints".
This relativity theory-based constraint becomes a questionable
conjecture, when viewed from the perspective of the many
observed varieties of infinite velocity transmissions of
Information. Such observations are allowed in the SubQuantum
theory, in the form of the bilinear transformation solutions
of the Maxwell equations. In this situation, the light velocity
limitation in signal transmissions, as based on the Lorentz
transformation solutions of the Maxwell equations, ceases
to be the only determinant which is capable of implementing
causal chains. Thus an exclusively Lorentzian interpretation
is shown to be only one case, out of many possibilities,
thus voiding all considerations of such, hitherto canonically
defended, singular and exclusive mechanisms.
Studies of the causal structure of relativistic "space-time"
have proved to be meaningless confusions, just as the search
for some sort of "first cause", or "creation
event", have proved to be. Explanatory attempts to
theoretically circumvent such causal deadlocks, for example,
by embedding universal causal chains in self-referential
time loops, have also failed, since such attempts fall short
of producing any acceptable suggestions regarding the original
set-up conditions, which set of initial conditions, might
be responsible for producing such time-looped constructions,
leading to such fruitless mathematical conjectures as Calabi-Yau
In fact, all such proposals of "initial conditions"
are actually irrefutably and strongly denied by the already
existing and physically proven sets of known physical laws
(not theories), such as Newton's Laws. Such proposals are
denied even more strongly by the Informational Universe
paradigm, the SQ paradigm, which physically proves all such
conjectures as unwarranted and irrelevant, while the SQ
paradigm is quite conversant with Newton's Laws. Furthermore,
the SQ paradigm actually succeeds in addressing the actual
origins and internal dynamics which result in Newton's Laws,
giving, for example, the actual causation and origination
of gravitation, regarding which cause, Newton stated, "I
frame no hypothesis." (So we have finally surpassed
Newton, after all these years.)
Concepts as "first" or "last" events
have to be left behind as logical nonsense (the Big Bang
hypothesis and the thermal death of the Universe included).
This decision has allowed scholars to accept the idea that
"hidden variables", are operating universal causal
systems. In order to bring deterministic theories into agreement
with statistical experiment, these disputed hidden variables
must be of a non-local consistency. This would imply the
actions of deterministic agents, which are acting from outside
the system, as evidenced in the PEAR experiments, for example.
So far, the only viable concept which is able to satisfy
this requirement is Bohm's concept of an "Implicate
Order", which concept underpins the very SubQuantum
theory which we defend.
Both macroscopic and Quantum-level consequences arise from
the non-local hidden variables concept, which are consistent
with Bohm's enfolded reality determinants, ultimately permitting
Schrödinger's poor cat to avoid being aware of his
embarrassing dual "alive and not-alive" condition.
Another obvious shortcoming in Quantum interpretations
of causality implies that a "wrong-way time" is
required for transcending the inherent inconsistencies in
the Heisenberg Uncertainty relation, which demands that
energy must be supplied from the future, defying commonly
understood conservation laws. Feynman's "path integrals",
which are expressing a canceling of oppositely directed
vectors, bring into the picture an interacting "virtual
reality", a mathematical abstraction which is dramatically
and physically denied.
In order to cope with such counterintuitive arguments,
a "Tetrahedron Model", has been proposed, which
is describing the interactions between conservations of
energy, symmetry, entropy and charge. In this view, time
is the entropy-drive of matter and information, creating
the causal linkage of matter's informational matrix, into
its manifestation patterns. Quantum bits of information,
are related, by this concept, to quantum bits of time and
energy, conveying to them the value of a valuable precursor,
when related to our subquantum world-view, where the fundamental
infinitesimal entity is basically a multidimensional one,
extending into Informational fields which operate beyond
From this novel perspective, the concept that some process
of particle/antiparticle symmetry-breaking must occur, at
some given point in time, becomes a completely unnecessary
assumption, placing mainstream cosmogenetic theories under
heavy question marks. (This topic is beyond the scope of
our present considerations and will be highlighted at future
opportunities.) For the moment, let us only hint to J.A.Gowan's
suggestion of placing Information at the central apex of
the aforementioned tetrahedron diagram of causality, which
apex had previously been wrongly ascribed to being the time
axis, and thus devoid of entropic meanings. By placing information-driven
causality at the primary tetrahedron apex, a new Information
driven cosmology opens for serious consideration. This has
far reaching consequences in biology, psychology and social
studies also, giving a substantial scientific reason for
reassessing the "Golden Rule" as being a fundamental
principle of causality and symmetry, thus leading to a universal
implementation of the Cosmic Harmony principle, in all ranges
of manifestation and integration.
Along these lines, Esoteric teachings related to Karmic
loops and interconnectedness pathways, become understandable
in view of the new paradigms' requirements, with sensitive
regulatory effects upon world-lines and events, crystallizing
at their interaction points. The meaning and the overall
status of causality is changed, while dogmatic upward-causation
chains, as originating exclusively from ponderable matter,
begin to break down.
The more paradoxical tenets of classical Quantum theory
begin to fade out under the increasing pressure of new theoretical
understandings. One of the most advanced such proposals
has been quite recently forwarded by Russian theoretical
physicist P.V. Kurakin. Its importance can be barely overestimated.
Therefore we think that mentioning some of the details of
this proposal, would be in place, in this quest for the
essence of causality.
Kurakin's proposal, which introduces "hidden time"
into Quantum computations, is consistent with Feynman's
mutually canceling vectors, Gowan's primary causal tetrahedron
apex, and the concept of non-local hidden variables, while
at the same time, replacing the "wrong-way time"
as implied by the already experimentally refuted Heisenberg
Uncertainty. This "wrong-way time" produces an
upside-down causal interaction vector, which vector, from
our routine perspective, actually runs in null time. While
amply debating the results of the Freedman-Clauser experiment,
and J. Cramer's related comments, the Kurakin view supports
nonlocal correlation patterns, as implied during Quantum
transitions which are operating in a multidimensional time
reference system. This view efficiently transcends current
quantum time-limitations and paradoxes, which are commonly
imposed by measuring time as being the number of energy
quanta which are absorbed in a given point, when this sequence
is normalized by some, randomly chosen, experimental coordinates.
Hidden variables must work at the level of the mathematical
apparatus which describes physically undetectable transition
tendencies, which are obeying principles which have been
imposed upon the transitional system, with guiding tendencies
which are originating from beyond the system. Such organizing
vectors must then have a determining effect in Quantum processes.
Obviously such determinants must operate in the subquantum
regimes of Information, which by definition, are external
to the time-embedded Quantum domain.
Previous to the more correct "removed-from-time"
descriptions of the SQ paradigm, Cramer's transactional
interpretations of such interactions, were designed to imply
that mutually canceling fragments of informational vectors,
are running in opposite time directions along some sort
of supplementary time coordinates (additional to the physically
detectable), thus allowing for such apparent reversed causality
effects. Such reversed causality is certainly hidden from
our currently available detection systems, which are severely
limited by conventional time-flow constraints. When compared
to the events running in the SubQuantum, trans-temporal,
"hidden" range of variables, such views as retro-causation
(backwards causality) receive competition, in the form of
a more valid competing force than some of the previously
considered classical models.
In this new light, the actual cause is not forced to precede
the effect, in terms of normal time. The "When?"
question is replaced by, "To what end?" This question
presents a more fruitful approach towards developing more
accurate descriptions of reality. This fundamental change
in understanding causality, as ultimately being a removed-from-time,
all-time-spanning, causality, has a tremendous shifting
effect on the traditional world-views, which the SubQuantum
view is challenging by now.
The "target" becomes the "cause", conveying
a new drive for universal dynamics involved at all the manifestation
levels, enfolded and unfolded, of the overarching cosmic
harmony, whose implementing of itself turns out to be both
the primary cause and the effect, as self-compensating coincident
points in a Sentient Reality, ceaselessly generating itself,
without implying a creation point or an end point.
In our next Issue, we will take under closer scrutiny a
different category of operative connectedness, the acausal
relationships, which are perfectly accommodated in the advanced
perspective we've outlined here. Together with direct and
reversed causality effects, acausal vectors, transcending
normal time considerations, will be discussed as legitimate
components of the inconceivably complex fabric of reality.
