Quantum Hologram FAQ's
Bioelectromagnetic Medicine, Marcel Dekker, Inc.
Quantum holography, a recently discovered attribute of all physical matter, provides a new conceptual tool to understand subtle complexities and processes of biological systems. Some of these cannot be explained by Newtonian physics but become comprehensible using this new approach, which may lead to exciting new advances in biology and medicine.

The proposed model for consciousness, called a dyadic model, is based upon reexamination of traditional thought structures in the light of modern experimental evidence from a number of scientific fields. It is an evolutionary cosmological model using energy and information as fundamental concepts. It proposes that the antecedent attributes of anthropic consciousness find their roots in the field of zero point quantum potential which gave rise to the Big Bang. In this model consciousness has both a fundamental aspect and an evolutionary aspect in the same sense that quantized energy manifests fundamentally as wave/particles and is observed in more complex form as molecular matter. Physical existence evolved through natural process into ever more complex organizations of matter; so also must anthropic consciousness have evolved from more fundamental antecedent characteristics. The dyadic model proposes a scenario for this evolution that corresponds to the appearance of the universe we seem to inhabit.
Space Flight as an Anticipatory Computing System
Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D.
Institute of Noetic Sciences, 2000
This paper presents an astronaut’s view of the global efforts to explore space. The seminal work in Earth and Lunar orbits by both the Soviet Union and the United States required only classical Newtonian physics to accomplish the initial steps. These early efforts, however, illuminate the limitations not only of classical physics but also of general relativity if humanity aspires to go deep into or beyond our solar system. The limitations of the early interpretations of special and general relativity, and vacuum, to orbit sophisticated instruments and to travel beyond the earth/moon system, excite the imagination to think beyond toward the possibility of exploring intragalactic space. Experimental results and new theory call into question the limitations imposed by classical theory. They offer hope that humankind is not forever confined to the solar system. I examine some of those ideas in this paper.
Nature's Mind: the Quantum HologramSelf-reference, the Dimensionality and Scale of Quantum Mechanical Effects, Critical Phenomena, and Qualia
Edgar D. Mitchell, Sc.D.
This paper presents a hypothesis for integrating into the scientific framework phenomena of consciousness which frequently have been considered beyond scientific description. Intuition, telepathy, clairvoyance and many similar information phenomena seem to be easily explained by means of the nonlocal quantum hologram. It is further postulated that from the point of view of evolution, quantum nonlocality is the basis from which self organizing cosmological processes have produced the common phenomenon of perception in living organisms.

Self-reference, the postulated key to a more complete understanding of quantum mechanics, is shown to be a necessary mathematical basis for an evolution of all that exists in relation to a self-created quantum cosmology. The initial act of this self-creation - a critical phenomenon where the material phase transitions give rise simultaneously to mass and the strong, electro-magnetic, weak properties of matter in agreement with those of the standard model of elementary particle physics - is shown to concern 3+1 dimensional Lorentzian space/time and Einstein's general relativity. Similarly subsequent acts giving rise to entirely novel material phase transitions and properties of matter, as predicted by renormalization group theory for which K.G. Wilson received the Nobel Prize, may include, evidence is presented, those of self-aware, possible conscious, living systems.
The Physical Nature of Consciousness
What is Consciousness?
An essay on the relativistic quantum holographic model of the brain/mind, working by phase conjugate adaptive resonance
Peter Marcer and Edgar Mitchell
The quantum holographic model described provides mathematically founded specification in terms of physical laws for the nature of information, knowledge, qualia, intelligence, the self and consciousness. It explains how a brain/mind, its neurons, dendrites, synapses, etc may be postulated to work, so as to explain the well known binding problem. It sheds light on the fact that brains can be so much more versatile, competent, and efficient than their digital information processing counterparts, in relation to perception, cognition, language and intelligence. Further, it provides a methodology, by means of which to predict the information processing morphology and signal dynamics of such brains, i.e. their neuroinformatics on various scales, so as to be validatable against the experimental facts of neurophysiology, neuropsychology, etc. The paper begins with an explanation of general scientific principles and concepts associated with the model, and supporting evidence is described. It ends with a proposal by means of which it can be further experimentally validated. This proposal concerns predicting the existence and the properties of microtubules internal to the axon of the neuron. Such a prediction provides an independent confirmation of the long held, but still controversial hypothesis of Hameroff and Penrose, that such axonal microtubules are a quantum mechanism fundamental to consciousness in higher organisms, such as humans.
