Could Quantum Entanglement Explain Telepathic Communication?

Could Quantum Entanglement Explain Telepathic Communication?

A few years ago, an experiment allowed a test subject in India to communicate with someone in France without speaking or typing. Later that year, another group developed a telepathic interface that allowed two people to collaborate using their minds to play a video game. But these telepathic modalities for our tech gadgets seem analog compared to the psychic telepathy many of us experience at some point in our lives. Could quantum entanglement bridge the gap?

Telepathy Research

Brain-to-brain communication, or what most of us might call telepathy, is currently being developed to build more advanced, convenient interfaces for technology we use today. Though it’s pretty slow at the moment, these interfaces may soon be used to telepathically manipulate wireless devices, control prosthetics, and communicate in new ways.

Our brains are an intricate network of neurons and synapses transmitting electrical signals that become memories, commands, and ideas. And when these neurons transmit data back and forth, they in turn create brain waves, or synchronous oscillations that aggregate and transfer information across different segments of the brain.

Today, those brain waves can be externally translated through the use of electroencephalography, or an EEG cap. These swim caps dotted with electrodes continuously measure the brain’s electric signals in different regions, translating them to data that can pinpoint where in the brain those signals are coming from and what their general intentions are.

In a 2014 experiment, researchers made a breakthrough with a new interface that allowed signals from an individual’s brain to manipulate a robotic exoskeleton, allowing a once-paralyzed man to deliver the opening kick at the World Cup. Scientists involved in these experiments believe they portend a future in which this technology becomes so common, that we will surf the internet and manipulate our devices using thought alone.

The Universe is a Hologram

So, Does Telepathy Exist?

In this sense, telepathic communication has essentially been proven possible, but what about the type of telepathic phenomena we experience naturally? Most people have experienced some type of uncanny ESP, whether it comes in the form of precognition, clairvoyance, intuition, or remote projection.

But if this phenomenon was measured in the way that brain interfaces work, we would expect to see things like a decay of the brain wave signal over long distances, or interference from other brain wave emissions. Instead, when we experience ESP phenomena, it seems impervious to these things. But, why?

Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance proposes an idea whereby all self-organizing systems in nature tap into a sort of collective memory that is not stored in the brain. Instead, this inherited memory exists psychically and can be accessed without regard to distance.

One aspect of this concept is that memory is passed down through genetics, but not in the sense that the information is written in to our DNA. To the contrary, Sheldrake provides the example of the failure of the Human Genome Project, which was unable to predict whether disease or physical attributes would be passed down based on one’s DNA.

Even for something as simple as height, it turned out that the information gleaned from genetic sequencing provided only five percent confidence in predicting the height of subjects’ progeny, compared to 80 percent confidence in simply measuring the parents’ height.

Instead, this collective memory seems to be passed on within groups of the same species that coexist together, and the more tight-knit a group is, the stronger a psychic bond exists.

In nature, this can be seen in the flocking behavior of birds or fish. When these animals swarm in schools or murmurations they change directions sharply without running into each other. This hive mindset is something unexplained by science, while evidence of some type of telepathic communication may be likely.

But what is the mechanism behind all this? Could it be explained by quantum theory?

The Possible Quantum Explanation

Physicists aren’t fond of what’s becoming a hackneyed theory that there may be a link between quantum physics and our consciousness; nonetheless there seems to be increasing evidence of a connection.

Einstein wasn’t the biggest fan of quantum entanglement, dismissing it as “spooky action at a distance,” because it didn’t fit into his general theory of relativity. But quantum entanglement is now a proven concept being used for quantum computing, and some physicists believe it could play a role in our consciousness.

Sir Roger Penrose first proposed the idea of a connection between quantum processes and consciousness, and he was quickly ostracized for it. The idea was considered sacrilegious to his materialist colleagues, who believed consciousness to be a physical product of the brain.

However, there has been another wave of acceptance for this theory supported by the research of esteemed U.C. Santa Barbara physicist Matthew Fischer. His theory came to him while he was recovering from depression.

Fischer was prescribed antidepressants finding them highly effective and able to lift him out of his slump. But he was astounded to learn that modern medicine doesn’t really have any idea why anti-depressants work the way they do to affect brain function.

Fischer did some research and found an experiment in which scientists gave mice two different isotopes of lithium and observed their behavior. He found that the mice given lithium-6 showed stronger maternal behaviors compared to those given lithium-7. The only difference between the two ions?  Nuclear spin.

Nuclear spin determines how long an atom can remain in an entangled state, or how long it remains coherent. With lower spins, the nucleus of the atom interacts with electric and magnetic fields less, slowing its decoherence. In the mice’s brain, the lithium-7 with a higher spin would decohere too quickly, but the lithium-6 worked, despite just a one neutron difference in weight.

This led Fischer to the idea that lithium might interact with the brain through quantum entanglement – for particular chemicals, the spin needs to be just right to entangle with neurons in the brain. This had the profound implication that our cognition may involve quantum processes.

Dean Radin is one of the most notable names studying what he calls “entangled minds.” Radin is the Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and has devoted much of his career to studying psychic phenomena, under the premise that quantum entanglement may bridge the gap between a seemingly paranormal function and provable science.

Radin says that based on 17th century science, or Newtonian physics, it’s easy to consider telepathy and psychic phenomena as paranormal, but now that quantum entanglement has been proven, and separate objects can be connected at great distances, psi could potentially become a replicable, natural function.

In this regard, it may be possible that the universe itself could be a single, self-entangled object and so could our brains. And if quantum physics is able to prove this, it just might change our entire conception of reality and consciousness itself.

Remote Viewing in Sidereal Time Can Enhance Telepathy

Remote Viewing in Sidereal Time Can Enhance Telepathy

There appears to be evidence that psychic phenomena can be affected by external factors, including geomagnetic forces and our alignment with the cosmos. As strange as this may sound, researcher James Spottiswoode discovered significant data showing that remote viewing in sidereal time is directly correlated with success, or lack thereof, based on our orientation to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Though, he doesn’t know exactly why.

How One Researcher Knew to Calculate Sidereal Time

Sidereal time is a method used by astronomers to keep track of celestial objects. It is based on a time scale of Earth’s rotation in relation to fixed stars in the sky and was used to discover the mysterious nature of pulsars, the highly-magnetized, rotating neutron stars – a source of gravitational waves. But Spottiswoode’s use of sidereal time could point to something more intriguing than gravitational waves; possibly a source emitting or influencing our consciousness.

At a certain point during the day, our zenith, or the point in the sky directly above us, aligns with a particular point in the galaxy. Rather than measuring time based on the Earth’s orientation with the sun, one can measure time based on Earth’s orientation to this galactic point. Days measured in this sense are shorter than solar days by about four minutes, lagging by a little more than one day per year.

So, what does this have to do with remote viewing and psychic phenomena? It turns out that there are peak times during the day when our orientation to the galactic center can enhance success with remote viewing and psychic ability, what Spottiswoode refers to as anomalous cognition. There are also times during the day when psychic ability can be adversely affected by our orientation with the galaxy.

 

remote-viewing-sidereal-time

 

Spottiswoode came to this conclusion by examining a dataset of 20 years worth of psychic research, containing 1,524 trials, between 22 different studies. He found a 400 percent spike in the success rate of tests from remote viewing sessions and wondered what could be causing it. Upon initially examining the time of day when the sessions were being conducted, based on solar time, he kept finding discrepancies. But when organizing the data based on sidereal time, Spottiswoode found a correlation.

 

Sidereal Time

 

At 13:30 h local sidereal time (LST), the data showed that one would have 400 percent greater success with remote viewing. At this time, our planet is oriented with the Milky Way so that the galactic center is located directly on the horizon. This daily period of peak psychic cognition lasts for about three and a half hours, from 12:45 to 14:15 h LST. When the center of the galaxy is directly overhead, or at our zenith, psychic cognition drops to its lowest point, between 17.5 and 20 h.

This Spottiswoode Peak, as it came to be known, had to be connected with something outside of our solar system because sidereal time is based on right ascension, or a longitudinal line to a fixed point in the sky, which rules out anything local due to planetary movement.

But what exactly was this data that Spottiswoode was analyzing and who was he exactly?

 

Is Remote Viewing Real?

James Spottiswoode is a parapsychologist who has worked on an array of government-funded projects investigating psychokinesis and ESP. He also worked with the Stanford Research Institute during its CIA-funded remote viewing program, known as the Star Gate Project. During his time studying telepathy, Spottiswoode ran experiments testing quantum optics and extremely low-frequency electromagnetic waves on psychic functions.

In addition to discovering the sidereal effect, Spottiswoode found correlations between solar wind and geomagnetic activity in his measurements of anomalous cognition.

During times of low geomagnetic activity, he found that there was an increase in telepathic experiences. This he says, is the only known physical variable that affects anomalous cognition. Geomagnetism is due to interactions between solar wind and the ionosphere, when ionized plasma from solar storms hits the Earth, causing fluctuations in our geomagnetic field. So, if you want to optimize your remote viewing session, make sure you fall within the right sidereal window and plan to view when the solar forecast is clear.

But with all of this evidence, is remote viewing actually real? What did Spottiswoode make of all of this? While his goal was to look empirically at the data and not attempt to measure the quality of the successful sessions, he concluded that the effect sidereal time had on remote viewing was indeed real. He collected data from a new sample of 1015 trials to verify his findings on the original set, reaching the same conclusion. But could there have been a more mundane explanation?

He said that had he found it to correlate with our solar day, he would have associated the phenomenon with circadian rhythms or our scheduled work days, but this wasn’t the case. “…I’ve checked my data carefully and those kinds of effects could not mimic the sidereal correlation I found. Don’t ask me what it is, but it’s real,” he said.

Further research has found the same effect to occur on precognition in animals. One study found a correlation with the 13.5 h sidereal time on Zebra Finches’ precognitive reaction to a stimulus. A correlation was also found on a precognitive test run by Rupert Sheldrake, another researcher who studies psychic phenomena. During this experiment, subjects were tested to see if they could tell who was calling them on the phone before answering. They found subjects were significantly more likely to predict their caller during the peak, 13.5 h sidereal time, compared to the 19 h sidereal time.

If Spottiswoode’s discovery is real it warrants further research into the phenomenon and what could possibly be causing it. Unfortunately, government funding in projects relating to psychic phenomena and remote viewing was cut years ago, at least as far as we know. But for those who meditate, remote view, or astral project, sidereal time should be taken into consideration during your practice. It’s relatively easy to calculate, with websites that let you know what your LST is. Have you ever experienced enhanced psychic cognition due to sidereal time?
