Theories Of The Mind And Existence

874 words - 3 pages

The quantum state of entangelment that Einstein initially dismissed as 'spooky action at a distance', has been scientifically confirmed by Professor Alain Aspect's Atom Optics group at Laboratoire Charles Fabry, Institut d'Optique, Paris(1). That is, faster than the speed of light, it is now possible to link together, or entangle, two quantum particles, photons of light or atoms, in a special way that makes them effectively two parts of the same entity. You can then separate them as far as you like, and a change in one is instantly reflected in the other.(2) A unified theory of the physical world, or this vast, undivided wholeness of cosmological activity at the sub-atomic level, suggests processes where electrons in a carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims, every heart that beats, and every star that shimmers in the sky.(3) Additionally, consciousness is considered as part of this continuum, a wave function of potential physical situations, connected not only to every other mind that exists or has existed, but to every atom, organism, and region in the vastness of space and time itself.(4) Dr. Karl Pribram and physicist David Bohm agree that the universe is alive and conscious at all levels, where the relationships between enfolded sructures of information and matter interweave and inter-penetrate each other throughout the whole of space, like a giant hologram.(5)

However, quantum theory cannot account for all the phenomena encountered in nature, because there is no deeper level of reality in which all effects have specific causes. This 'uncertainty relation' between the position and the momentum (mass times velocity) of a subatomic particle, such as an electron, is that the more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa.(6) Likewise, our vast 'sea' of energy endlessly enfolds and unfolds into infinite dimensionality like a hologram, where two seemingly non-local correlations form a complimentary whole. For example, three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser are compared to a kind of image or construct created by consciousness, as our thought processes are much more intimately connected to the physical world than previously suspected. But the most fascinating thing about the holographic universe is that it makes sense of a range of spiritual phenomena categorized outside the realm of mathematical elegance, including mystical feelings of oneness with the universe.(7) The quantum implication here is where two electrons establish a kind of telepathic link that transcends space and time with infinite interconnectedness that is the deeper reality of all things in our holographic universe.(8)

But because of the point that God is “that which a greater cannot be thought” it can logically be concluded that God has to exist in mind and in reality (Kreeft). The Ontological Argument could be inconclusive or even manipulated to such an extent where it could

The Existence of God

1022 words - 5 pages The ontological argument aims to prove the existence of God as an a priori argument. One of the distinguishing features of Descartes's argument is its simplicity. The argument is deductive and based on reason alone and requires no need for physical evidence of God, it attempts to prove Gods existence objectively and necessarily. There are some statements we know to be false without any further information, such as “a circle has 3 sides” or “she

Both of these philosophers are alike in the fact that they both argued a posteriori arguments. Out of
