Quantum Entanglement: can we “see” the Implicate Order? Philosophical Speculations.

Abstract: This brief paper argue about a possible philosophical description of the implicate order starting from a simple theoretical experiment. Utilizing an EPR source and the human eyes (as biological detectors) of a “single” person, we try to investigate the philosophical and physical implications of quantum entanglement in terms of implicate order. We know, that most specialists still disagree on the exact number of photons required to trigger a neural response, although there will be many technical challenges, we assume that neural response will be achieved in some way. The objective of paper is to investigate possible links between: quantum mechanics, quantum cognitive science, brain and mind. At the moment, the questions are more than the answers. We argue that we are perennially immersed in the implicate order and that the “real path” of quantum entanglement process is from the implicate order towards explicate order, not vice versa. Finally, we speculate about the common ground between the implicate order and chitta (Vedic theory of Mind)

M.Caponigro, R. Vimal: Quantum Interpretation of Vedic theory of Mind: an epistemological path and objective reduction of thoughts.

Abstract: This brief paper argue about a possible quantum interpretation of Vedic Theory of Mind. Chitta, Manas, Buddhi and Ahamkara, in our quantum approach will be considered respectively as: common ground, quantum superpositions, observer (quantum collapsing) and measurement outcomes eingvalues, Povm. We suggest that through the continue interactions between these four components, we are able to understand the formation of Ahamkara (Ego). Chitta (by vrittis) is linked to Manas via entanglement. The unsolved problem is the nature of Buddhi component and his right collocation in this process. Moreover, we argue that our approach can be supported by Zeilinger’s interpretations of quantum mechanics. Finally, we will speculate about possible analogy between Chitta and Bohm’s Holomovement.

M.Caponigro, M.Dyczkowski:Quantum Entanglement and Holomovement: an unfragmented epistemology.

Abstract: This paper argue about the natural revision of the notions of space and time started by general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics (i.e entanglement). In the light of quantum entanglement (quantum correlations which transcends our notions of space and time), we suggest to consider the viewpoint that spatio-temporal relations between objects are emergent properties in the explicate order, and that Bohm’s holomovement concept has no space-time structure. For these reasons, we cannot relying the space-time as primitive notions (i.e. the ontic level). The primary elements in our approach will be considered the holomovement which unfolds and enfolded (via Entanglement) by space-time. In the last section of paper, we will speculate about a possible link between the Holomovement and Spanda, a central notion in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism philosophy.
