"The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with Quantum Mechanics and with facts established by experiment." - Bernard d'Espagnat, director of the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics and Elementary Particles at the University of Paris XI (Orsay) from 1980-1987.Mr Wang is busy at work and apologises to his readers for not responding to their emails (yet). To the reader who argued that "if thought can affect reality, then telepathy would be possible!", yes, in Mr Wang's opinion, your reasoning is logical.
Thus Mr Wang would refer you to Professor Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics. He is currently a professor at Cambridge University, and a strong advocate of the possibility of the existence of paranormal phenomena. He is also the head of the mind-matter unification project at Cambridge.
Note that the non-local aspects of telepathy (for example, the ability of a person in one place to instantly read the mind of another person in another place) is not inconsistent with the nonlocality aspects of quantum physics (the ability of a subatomic particle to instantly affect every subatomic particle that it has ever entangled with, regardless of wherever they may now be in the universe). See this, for example:
"Nonlocality has been invoked as an explanation for telepathy and clairvoyance, though some investigators believe that they might involve a deeper level of nonlocality, or what Bohm calls "super-nonlocality" (similar perhaps to Sheldrake's "morphic resonance" (1989)). As already pointed out, if nonlocality is interpreted to mean instantaneous connectedness, it would imply that information could be "received" at a distance at exactly the same moment as it is generated, without undergoing any form of transmission. At most, one could then try to understand the conditions that allow the instant appearance of information."As a matter of fact, researchers are now working on possible technological applications of this phenomenon - for example, two computer systems employing quantum technology could instantly "teleport" encrypted information to each other.
Sir Roger Penrose, the world-renowned mathematical physicist at Oxford University, may not agree though. His argument appears to be that while thoughts may indeed affect reality and consciousness may indeed be required to collapse a subatomic particle either into a wave or a particle, the kind of consciousness that may be necessary to sustain the existence of the universe is not the kind of "consciousness" that any computer, no matter how advanced, could have.
In other words, even if the universe was created by God, He was most definitely not a piece of software.
Stay tuned for more, Mr Wang will be back!
