I invoke as a conjecture an extension of the experimental fact that BECs (Bose-Einstein Condensates) may become entangled regardless of the kind of particles. That is one BEC composed of a certain kind of particle may connect to another BEC composed of a different kind of particle. I extend this to the conjecture that the BEC of Compact String Particles (or String Monads) may be entangled with whatever BECs exist in the brain, or anywhere in nature for that matter. > >> >> all as the physical consciousness of the brain is very different >> from the consciousness manifested by the compact manifolds (which is >> the basis of our individual minds as well as a universal mind, much >> like comp) even though the two consciousnesses are connected and often >> copies of each other. >> >> The space of this model is 3-D.

Especially, why does that put them outside > spacetime? If the entire space of the universe is imaged to essentially a point in space, and essentially also to every other point in physical space, then in a sense the properties of those points are outside space. In an Everett block universe they would be outside spacetime. A 2-d string solution by Greene verifies that the entire universe is mapped to the interior of a circle instantly. But such a string solution for the 3-d CSM particles is not available. I conjecture that the instantaneous property is carried over to the 3-d particle. And besides since they are collectively a BEC, information can flow instantly, or at least at speeds far beyond the speed of light as demonstarted for laboratory physical BECs. > >> >> Richard >> >> >> > -- >> > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google >> > Groups >> > "Everything List" group. >> > To post to this group, send email to everything-list@googlegroups.com. >> > To unsubscribe from this group, send email to >> > everything-list+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com. >> > For more options, visit this group at >> > http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list?hl=en. >> >> -- >> You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups >> "Everything List" group. >> To post to this group, send email to everything-list@googlegroups.com. >> To unsubscribe from this group, send email to >> everything-list+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com. >> For more options, visit this group at >> http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list?hl=en. >> > > -- > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups > "Everything List" group. > To post to this group, send email to everything-list@googlegroups.com. > To unsubscribe from this group, send email to > everything-list+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com. > For more options, visit this group at > http://groups.google.com/group/everything-list?hl=en. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
