Synchronicity and quantum consciousness

By Michael Latriano

The problem of how consciousness and the brain are related to each other has many facets, and it can be approached from many different starting points. The historically leading disciplines in this respect are philosophy and psychology, which were later joined by behavioral science, cognitive science and neuroscience. In addition, the physics of complex systems and quantum physics have played stimulating roles in the discussion from the beginning.

As regards quantum physics, there can be no reasonable doubt that quantum events occur and are efficacious in the brain as elsewhere in the material world. But it is still controversial whether these events are relevant for those aspects of brain activity that are correlated with mental activity. The original motivation in the early 20th century for relating quantum theory to consciousness was essentially philosophical. Features of quantum theory, which were found attractive in discussing issues of consciousness, were the concepts of superposition, non-locality, and entanglement. Pioneers of quantum physics such as Planck, Bohr, Schrödinger, and Pauli, emphasized the various possible roles of quantum theory in reconsidering the old conflict between physical determinism and conscious free will, e.g. synchronicity. Potential features of quantum computation could explain enigmatic aspects of consciousness. The Penrose—Hameroff model suggests that quantum superposition and a form of quantum computation occur in microtubules—cylindrical protein lattices of the cell cytoskeleton within the brain’s neurons. Microtubules couple to and regulate neural–level synaptic functions, and they may be ideal quantum computers because of dynamical lattice structure, quantum–level subunit states and intermittent isolation from environmental interactions.

If you are curious about the intersection of science and spirituality, join IONS Amigos San Miguel (the Institute of Noetic Science) for a very timely synchronous event on Monday, October 21, from 3:30 to 5pm. Enjoy an inspiring 90 minutes of left brain/right brain stimulation with noetic science researcher Michael Latriano, including a pre-recorded interview with Dr. Stuart Hameroff. Michael is a former consultant to Bell Laboratories, as well as an artist, musician, and alchemist, living in San Miguel. Stuart Hameroff is an anesthesiologist and professor at the University of Arizona, known for his studies of consciousness. Hameroff appeared as himself in the documentary film What tнe ♯$*!blip. On October 7 Michael gave a presentation on “The Physics of Synchronicity.” Part 2 of this presentation, on October 21, is called “Synchronicity & Quantum Consciousness.” Every attendee will receive a copy of the Synchronicity: Life Transformation Model. An interactive exercise, using this model, will help describe categories of synchronistic events through a lifetime, as well as various patterns and cumulative effects. If you are wondering about quantum stuff, synchronicity, spirituality, and consciousness, you will leave with some new insights and inspirations as to how they may be connected. At the Calenda Restaurant in the courtyard of Hotel Nena at Nemesio Diez 10, near Cafe Rama. You can also visit IONS Amigos San Miguel on Facebook.
