Integral Theories of Everything: Ervin Laszlo and Ken Wilber. Brian Van der Horst. Université Intégrale. Paris, 16 October. Along with many others, these efforts may be seen as a New Renaissance. vii viii Foreword Amid the milieu of this embryonic paradigm shift, Ervin Laszlo stands.

We are not separate, self-centered lonely beings but organic parts of the human family and of the web of life on Earth. Our natural state is a state of oneness—the state of unity of all the cells and organs of our body, and of all the systems and communities in which we participate.

Separateness and isolation is a flaw and an illusion; our natural condition is a state of oneness. It is a state of all-embracing love. We can participate in the vast awakening that is now re-bonding young people to each other and to nature.

This Declaration describes the roots, the culture and the consciousness of all-embracing love. These hallmark the thinking and the acting we need to create a world of thrival and peace. We need not go from crisis to catastrophe. Accordingly the vacuum is a physical medium that assumes various states of polar- ization. In the Bivacuum nonmixing subquantum particles of opposite energy form vorti- cal structures.

Much of the organization of the universe and of life, Wagner maintains, is due to the standing waves created by the response of the vacuum to longitudinal W-waves Wagner a, b. Michael J. Coyle maintains in turn that the quantum vacuum is a kind of neo-ether through which all matter and energy evolves in continuous nonhertzian communication.

The neo-ether model posits that the vacuum state has the same properties as a dynamic holography crystal: Due to quasi-infinite superposition possibili- ties, the quantum vacuum is the source of all possible matter- energy states and parallel universes. Individual states can be selected using a fundamental form of a holographic, self- referencing, phase-conjugate mirror-like process. This process ac- counts for the nonlocality observed in biological organisms as well as in consciousness. Thus matter coupled with time is a discontinuous teleportation of information across a sub-Planckian void.

All possible superimpositions of particles or parallel uni- verses can be selected at the point of information-transfer, since they all share information through interference at that point, prior to becoming actualized in a given universe Coyle This cosmic plenum interacts with the particles and systems of particles that make up the observable universe.

It appears that it is the interac- tion between particles and the cosmic plenum that determines the mass of the particles, as well as the values of the universal forces and constants of nature.

The First Postulate: This was well suited to a variety of technical applications, but it ignored the subtle yet physically real effects produced by longitudinally propagating waves such as scalars. There is increasing experimental evidence, however, that the longitudinal component is real: The shift can be detected when a coherent electron beam is split into two and each split beam shifts its phase differently.

On recombin- ing, an interference pattern results. Wu, C. Yang, and T. Already at the end of the 19th century Nicola Tesla noted that nonhertzian scalar waves are fundamental in nature. This allows electromagnetic waves of contrary vector potential to cancel each other. Nevertheless, the canceled waves continue to carry information; they affect phase rather than amplitude. A number of investigators, including Will- iam A.

Tiller, Thomas Bearden, V. Ignatovich, and R. Scalars are coming back also into biophysics: It considers charged particles soliton-like wave-packets arising through the excitation of the plenum.

Excitation produces perturbation: This component affects phase, rather than amplitude. Longitudinal excitations propagate through the ple- num similarly to waves propagating in a body of water. According to Bearden and other investigators, the scalar component of the plenum is more fundamental than its electro- magnetic component: The wavefunctions are sequentially integrated, with the wavefunctions of higher-order ensembles in- tegrating the wavefunctions of lower-order ensembles.

To elucidate this proposition we should note that the wavefunction is the waveform equivalent of the quantum state of particles.

Rather, this function indicates all the possible states a given particle can occupy in space and time; the actual state of the particle selects one from among these intrin- sically equiprobable states. Consequently the wavefunction de- scribes a deeper domain of reality: It refers to the unobservable, nonmanifest world of instantaneous correlation.

With the collapse of this function—as a consequence of an act of measurement or another form of interaction—events in this underlying domain emerge into the domain of actuality. These structures propa- gate without friction and can carry information, either through their structure, or through their magnetic momentum. This information is the wavefunction— the wave-transform of the quantum state—of the pertinent par- ticles and particle systems. The Third Postulate: As noted in part 1, the correlations underlying the anomalous forms of coherence in nature extend quasi-instantly across space and endure without known limitation in time.

This is the founda- tion of the third postulate of connectivity hypothesis. In a seminal paper published in the beginning of the twen- tieth century, E. Whittaker showed that the propagation veloc- ity of longitudinal waves such as scalars is proportional to the mass-density of the medium in which they propagate Whittaker This is also the case of sound waves: This creates interfer- ence patterns that preserve phase-information. As in ordinary holograms, the information is in a distributed form, given at all points within the range of the interfering wavefronts.

The coded regions of the cosmic plenum expand with the propagation of the perturbations. Ultimately the regions overlap and the wavefunctions carried by them superpose, creating higher- order wavefunctions. A medium that carries the wavefunction of the universe requires a storage capacity of almost inconceivable magnitude.

Experience with conventional holography shows that holograph wave-interference patterns can be densely superposed; according to some estimates the entire content of the Library of Congress can be encoded in a multilayered holo- graph medium no larger than a cube of sugar.

In such a superhologram every component remains conserved and indi- vidually retrievable—in the case of a library, every letter in every volume can be read out. This page intentionally left blank.

Its postulates, advanced in the foregoing chapter, suggest that the coherence-inducing response of the plenum to the presence of charged particles is scale-invariant and universal: The anomalous forms of coherence obtain not only as nonlocality in the domain of quanta, but also obtain in the living world and in the universe at large. If phenomena are analogous, the processes responsible for them may have an invariant component.

This creates information of a particular variety: The in-formation of systems and particles is the result of a two-way process. In one direction charged particles and systems of particles structure the plenum in their region, creating inter- ference-patterns that code their wavefunction.

It is never the single particle or the single property of a particle on which the wavefunction carries information, but the collective state of the system in which the particles participate; the wavefunction corresponds to the superposition of the state of all the particles within a coordinate system. Thus when the plenum response carries the wavefunction of a set of particles, it in-forms those particles with the collective state of the higher-level coordinate system in which they participate: The integrated highest-level wavefunction sequen- tially in-forms the lower-level sub systems: This limitation is not classically deterministic: Systems on each level are immediately in-formed with the wavefunction of the ensemble of which they are a part, and this results in entanglement: On still higher levels being a part of the same ensemble means sharing the same biosphere, and ultimately the same solar system, galaxy, and metagalaxy.

We can thus conclude that particles are immediately corre- lated by the wavefunction of the system of coordinates in which they had originated, or that they had at one time entered. In the context of these ensembles particles exhibit the highest degree of correlation: Particles are merely mediately in- formed with the wavefunction of the higher-level ensembles in which they may participate, such as molecules, cells, and organ- isms.

Consequently particles within entire macroscopic systems are less manifestly correlated within these systems. In the same way, cells in an organism are immediately in-formed with the wavefunction of that organism and hence exhibit instant, multi- dimensional coherence; and they are mediately in-formed with the wavefunction of the ecology in which the given organism participates, with the result that the cells of diverse organisms are not immediately correlated within entire ecosystems.

The same concept of mediate and immediate relationships and the corresponding degrees of correlation applies to organ- isms and their social and ecological systems. The relationship of organisms to the social and ecological systems in which they participate is relatively direct, and this gives rise to a more ob- servable form of correlation among them. By comparison the rela- tionship of particular organisms to local and global ecosystems is indirect, and the correlation that surfaces in that broader con- text is less manifest.


The hypothesis is completed by specifying the degrees of correlation: In-formation by second-, third-, and higher-order ensembles creates correspondingly less pronounced forms of correlation.

The different degrees of correlation can be accounted for by the different degree to which higher-level wavefunctions fac- torize to their components. De- composability through the factorization of the wavefunction allows a coherent system to act as a coordinated ensemble of diverse parts, rather than a monolithic totality.

Quantum physics also tells us that the collective wavefunction of an ensemble of par- ticles does not always factorize to the individual particles in that ensemble—for if it did, the particles would never be fully entangled. The hypothesis of connectivity generalizes this principle to all scales and levels in nature.

When the wavefunction of an ensemble of particles does not factorize to the individual par- ticles that make up that ensemble, the collective wavefunction fully correlates the state of those particles.

However, the wave- function of higher-order ensembles does factorize to some ex- tent to its component wavefunctions. This allows a relative degree of autonomy to lower-level systems and to individual particles in the systems while ensuring their overall correlation. The corre- lation limits the degrees of freedom of the particles and systems of particles within their ensembles and creates coherence- producing correlation within those ensembles. Connectivity hypothesis states that the physical basis of anomalous coherence in the diverse domains of its observation is the response of the cosmic plenum to the pres- ence of charged particles and systems of particles.

Connectivity hypothesis is sound, and a valid foundation of integral quantum science if it provides the simplest consistent explanation of the coherence coming to light in the various domains of experience. These domains are the microdomain of the quantum, the macrodomain of the cosmos, and the mesodomains of life and mind.

The Microworld Hypothesis The microworld hypothesis is represented in the following notation: The latter entangles the particles within their system of coordinates and completes the quantum mechanics of particle interaction. In this context we should recall that the wavefunction col- lapses simultaneously throughout a quantum-mechanical system: The feedback of the wavefunction of particles within their system of coordinates i.

This produces the observed forms of correla- tion inter alia in the EPR experiment and in the various versions of the split-beam and double-slit experiments. Particles are in-formed with the wavefunction of their system of coordinates due to the selective matching of their quantum state through the form of their wavefunction with the plenum- conveyed collective wavefunction, that is, with the state of the coordinate system.

Selection is required, because even if the highest- order wavefunction—that of the universe—is common to all par- ticles in the universe, lower-order wavefunctions differ according to the quantum state of the component particles. Selectivity of this kind does not call for conscious intelli- gence: A given holograph interference-pattern meshes with, and can be used to pick out, a conjugate pattern within a conceivably vast array of diverse patterns.

The microworld hypothesis provides an explanation of the temporal as well as the spatial dimensions of quantum entangle- ment. Menos Kafatos, Robert Nadeau, and other cosmologists have shown that nonlocal types of correlation extend throughout space- time. Nonlocality in the universe suggests the presence of the collective wavefunction of the galactic macrostructures, which is the wavefunction of the universe. The in-formation of cosmic macrostructures with the wavefunction of the universe means that to some subtle but not negligible extent all macrostructures are correlated with each other.

What is Reality?

This elucidates two major puzzles of contemporary cosmology. As we have seen in chapter 1, stars and galaxies evolve iso- morphically in all directions from Earth. The large-scale unifor- mity of the macrostructures extends even to galaxies that are not in physical contact with each other since they recede from one another at a rate higher than the speed of light.

This is said to explain the uniformity of cosmic evolution even if the subsequent expansion of the uni- verse had prevented light rays from catching up with the expan- sion of the periphery and reaching the outer galaxies. However, the very same facts can also be explained by a cyclic model of the universe. For such coherence to occur and to persist, some form of interconnection among the struc- tures may be required. On the scale of the cosmos, this in-formation correlates the pathways of galac- tic evolution.

The macroworld hypothesis elucidates also another puzzle of contemporary cosmology: This assumption is contradicted, however, by the statistical analysis of the microwave background. And the small subset of patterns that did occur was precisely such that a coherently evolving and ultimately life-bearing universe could come into existence. In turn, the anthropic principle—which in its various versions claims either that the universe is the way it is because there are conscious observers of it, or at least that it is the way it is because conscious observers can ask questions about it—is ad hoc and frankly anthropocentric.

It is not unduly speculative: How local universes would arise in the metaverse is still debated.

What is Kobo Super Points?

One possibility is that the extreme high densities of black holes produce singularities where the known laws of phys- ics do not apply. Burbidge, and J. The cosmology put forward by Ilya Prigogine, J.

Geheniau, E. Gunzig, and P. Nardone agrees with the QSSC in suggesting that major matter-creating bursts similar to the Big Bang occur from time to time Prigogine et al, Gravitation is thus at the root of the ongoing syn- thesis of matter: The more particles are generated, the more negative energy is produced, transferred as positive energy to the synthesis of still more particles. Negative potential energy and not spatial curvature ac- counts for the reversal from expansion to contraction.

The con- tinuation of the currently observed accelerated expansion dilutes the entropy, black holes, and other remnants of evolution in the present cycle, returning the universe to a pristine vacuum state where it contracts and bounces to a new cycle. At present we are about 14 billion years into the current cycle and at the beginning of a trillion-year period of acceleration.

However, between the cycles the universe never reaches the true ground state, hovering above it, bouncing from one side to the other, but spending most of the time on the positive-energy side.

They can, however, be developed to do so. This requires to hypothesize that the pre-space of a new cycle is effectively in-formed by events in the preceding cycle. In this man- ner the cycles exhibit a learning curve, leading to progressive consistency among the successively arising universes.

This theoretical advance is anticipated in the macroworld hy- pothesis. Evi- dently, if 10 is true, S , the highest-level system, is Smu rather than Su. Interfering scalar wavefronts code and conserve the wavefunction of the particles and systems of particles that evolve in space and time.

Consequently the patterns created in prior universes or universe-cycles must be assumed to have been present in the pre-space of our universe. Unlike quanta, which do not have subsidiary parts, and the universe or metaverse , which is not itself part of a larger whole, organisms are wholes in regard to their constituent cells and molecular assemblies, and parts with respect to the ecological and socioecological systems in which they participate.

Segment 1 accounts for intra-organic coherence, the anomalous coherence of the organism itself, and segment 2 for transorganic coherence, the coherence of the organism with its milieu. According to connectivity hypothesis the ground state of the cosmic plenum provides a universal dynamic background for all possible excitations, whether at the microscale, the mesoscale, or the macroscale. At the microscale the modulation of the ple- num through quantized excitations carries the wavefunction of charged particles and coordinate systems of particles, while at the mesoscale it carries the macroscopic wavefunction of organ- isms and systems of organisms.

Since living organisms have a quantum-correlated aspect, we can speak of the wavefunction of the organism: This coherence suggests a multidimensional, quasi-instant correlation among all parts of the organism, beyond the range of known biochemical effect transmission. Transorganic coherence of this kind is accounted for in turn by the in-formation of the brain of the test subjects with their collective wavefunction. The here cited transferred-stimuli experi- ments show that empathetic and emotional contact is a major factor in transferring the stimuli.

The brain of people in close personal relationships appears to be enduringly correlated. Their collective wavefunction affects the brain and infuses the mind of each individual, creating the observed correlation between the states of their brain and the associated states of their consciousness.

Not only two or a handful of individuals can be trans- personally connected; entire societies and ecologies can be so linked, even if such linkages are more subtle and less manifest. The genetic consequences of in-formation with the wavefunction of an ecology favors mutations consistent with con- ditions in that ecology: Herewith the mesoworld hypothesis provides a plau- sible explanation of the descent of species from common ancestors within the known timeframes by eliminating the unrestrained ran- domness of genetic variation postulated in the Darwinian theory.

In complex species the behavioral consequences of in- formation with the wavefunction of the social or ecological sys- tem in which the individual participates emerge into prominence. Behavior patterns acquired during generations of trials and errors become part of the wavefunction of the species. This creates evolutionary learning. Members of a species do not need to reinvent adaptive responses by continuing to engage in the slow and uncertain processes of trial and error.

Doing so would have either precluded the evolution of higher species of organisms, or would have led to their rapid extinction. The pattern develops too soon to be the result of learning by trial and error, and it is too quick and complex to be transmitted entirely by reading genes stored in DNA through RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other biochemical transmitters. Because living organisms are in-formed by the collective wavefunction of their species and as a result access the survival- oriented patterns of behavior developed by their progenitors, biological evolution is both Darwinian and Lamarckian: In modern people this infor- mation is repressed from waking consciousness, but remains present in the subconscious domains of the mind.

They shape the emotional and intuitive aspects of behavior and may surface to conscious awareness in meditative and other altered states. The cerebral activity of generation after generation of individuals, integrated in the collective wavefunction of the species, in-forms the brain and nervous system of succes- sive generations of individuals. This hypothesis seeks to tie together in the simplest possible scheme of thought a particular kind of observed fact: The presence of in-formation in nature is a fundamental tenet of connectivity hypothesis.

Connectivity hypothesis shows that the feedback of active in- formation, occurring in the holographic mode, creates coher- ence among the particles and systems of particles that created it. Just one additional assumption is required to account for the full range of anomalous coherence in nature, from the micro- domain of the quantum through the mesodomains of life and mind, to the macrodomain of the universe.

In the period from the seventeenth to the nineteenth cen- tury science was in rapid yet relatively linear evolution. It built on the paradigm provided by Galileo, Kepler, and Newton and, emancipating itself from religion gained a dominant position in the Western world. However, toward the end of this period researchers in fundamen- tal physics, cosmology, biology, and consciousness studies encoun- tered deepening anomalies.

The outcome of the coming revolution is variously assessed. This view has much to recommend it, but it does not grasp the full range of the anomalies that drive the current development. As a quasi-universal phenomenon it requires a new conceptual framework, one that can exhibit the unity of the main branches of the empirical sciences including physics, cosmology, biology, and the transpersonal and quantum brain-theoretical schools of consciousness research.

Coherence, of course, is not the only factor arguing for the unity of the physical, the biological, and the psychological sci- ences. Evolution in the universe and evolution on Earth, though phenomenologically different, prove to be continuous and in some respects mutually consistent. There is, for example, a continuous and consistent buildup of free energy density in physical and biological systems.

Eric Chaisson has shown that Fm, the value of free energy rate density the unit of energy per time per mass, erg s—1 g—1 increases throughout the range of physical and biological evolution. For stars the average value of Fm is 2; for planets such as the Earth it is 75; for plants in the biosphere it is ; and in the human body it is 20, Chaisson Building on these continuities and invariances, science is cur- rently growing beyond physics and beyond biology, into the dimension of transdisciplinary theory.

A sound hypothesis of connec- tivity will lay the foundation for a science that is more inclusive, and penetrates deeper into the realms of reality than the main- stream sciences of the twentieth century. Information is not only the dominant reality of technological civilization; it is also emerging as a basic feature of the investigation of nature. According to Roy Frieden, it is the foundation of the laws of physics Frieden His work dem- onstrates that the laws that govern the physical world are deriv- able from the amount of information present in observed phenomena.

Frieden points out that the much vaunted equa- tions of quantum physics, considered the most basic laws of the known world, derive their legitimacy from the fact that they work: Both I and J can be calculated for a wide range of phenomena.

This leads to the appropriate Lagrangian, and when it is made as small as possible, the per- tinent law of physics emerges.

Information, Frieden maintains, is what physics is all about. However, information may also be objectively present in nature.

Though a classical factor, the quantum potential was said to act by form alone, and hence it anticipated the notion of physically active in-formation. This concept had precedents throughout the twentieth cen- tury. Although Bohm did not generalize the concept of non- energetic in-formation beyond physics, it is now evident that physi- cally effective yet nonvectorially propagating in-formation is not limited to the quantum world. Evidence reviewed in this study shows that it is a factor in the evolution of the living world, of the world of consciousness, and of the universe as a whole.

Puthoff articulated the basic insight and the challenge it poses to science: Who is to say whether. It will also penetrate wider into the cosmos—beyond the spatial and temporal bound- aries of this universe, to the metaverse that gave birth to this universe and set its parameters. These extensions of the penetra- tion of science will not be arbitrary, or even surprising: Every conception of the nature of reality entails a metaphysics, whether it is recognized or not.

Two Domains of Reality Universal connectivity makes reality unitary but it does not make it uniform: The latter domain is intrinsically unobserv- able, but it is inferable through its effects on the observable domain.

The virtual energy- domain is both the generative ground of these entities, and the medium that correlates their state and informs their evolution. Quantized particles and the systems built of them are the furnishings of the manifest domain. They are sustained in the manifest domain by interaction with each other. In the absence of interac- tion, the particles do not exhibit the corpuscular properties that hallmark the manifest domain: At various levels of evolution the manifest entities of the universe are particles, systems of particles, and higher-order sys- tems of systems of particles.

They bind the energies emerging from the virtual domain in quantized packets. Charged particles and the systems formed of them are internally related to each other and to the rest of the universe. The wave interference-patterns that convey the latter are the formative elements in the evolution of complexity in the cosmos: The a priori given of the universe is not a set of formative patterns, but a two-fold poten- tiality residing in the virtual domain.

It is the potentiality of that domain 1 to create manifest particles, and 2 to encode the wave-patterns that correspond to the state of the particles and of the systems built of them, and to convey the patterns to in-form the state of other particles and systems of particles.

In the metaphysics of universal connectivity the ultimate reality is the virtual-energy domain from which spring manifest particles and systems of particles in space and time. The two domains, the emergent domain of manifest entities and the fun- damental domain of structured virtual energies, are the universe in a complete envisagement.

They are categorically distinct but not ontologically disparate: The two domains of the universe are diachronically as well as synchronically related. Diachronically, the virtual domain is prior: Synchronically, the generated particles are linked with their generative ground through an ongoing bi-directional interaction. In one direction the manifest particles structure the virtual energy domain in which they are particularized nodal points or crystallizations.

In the other direction the structured virtual energy domain in-forms the manifest entities that subsist and evolve in space and time. In-formation leads to the coherent evolution of the manifest domain, which in turn further structures the virtual domain.

At the fundamental level of reality the forms of existing things dissolve into formlessness, living organisms exist in a state of pure potentiality, and dynamic functions condense into static stillness. All attributes of the mani- fest world merge into a state beyond attributes. Time, space, and causality are transcendend in a state of pure being: Absolute reality is the reality of Brahman; the manifest world enjoys but a derived, secondary reality—mistaking it for the real is the illusion of maya.

Brahman, though undifferenti- ated, is dynamic and creative. The samsara of being-to- becoming, and again of becoming-to-being, is the lila of Brahman: The absolute reality of Brahman and the derived reality of the manifest world consti- tute an interconnected whole: When a region of this cosmic plenum manifested a critical instability, some fraction of the thereby liberated energies be- came established as quantized packets of matter-energy.

The relations of these entities to each other and to the underlying virtual domain launched the evolutionary process with the known dimensions of space and time. During the As a result the mani- fest entities of this universe are coherent wholes, and are coher- ently related to the superordinate and likewise coherent wholes that make up their environment.

In sequentially superposing wave interference-patterns the wavefunction of indi- vidual particles and systems of particles is integrated in the collec- tive wavefunction of their superordinate systems. The virtual domain encodes the collective wavefunction of the particles and systems of particles. The highest-order wavefunction coded in the virtual domain is the wavefunction of the highest-level system: This wavefunction in-forms galaxies and all lower-level matter-energy systems throughout space and time.

However, in our interactively evolving universe a more subtle yet equally effective form exists as well: In the course of cosmic aeons irreversible processes exhaust the concentration of free energies, the sources and stores of negative entropy. When entropy overtakes the complexity-buildup process, the evolution of manifest entities reverses.

Complex struc- tures break down, yielding to simpler ones, which break down in turn until, near the end of cosmic evolution, atomic nuclei, stripped of electron shells, become supercompacted in black holes. A single-cycle universe comes to eternal rest. But further instabilities in the virtual energy domain may occur, and some of these may be potent enough to create new universes.

The thesis of a metaverse giving rise to local universes is cogent, and is embraced in the metaphysics of universal coherence. On this thesis either periodic instabilities in the cosmic plenum produce local universes, or the metaverse itself undergoes cyclic renewal, so that evolution in the universes repeats time after time.

How- ever, since in each of the universes or universe-cycles manifest entities structure the virtual domain, and that domain in-forms the birth of the successive universes, the evolutionary process does not repeat in the same way. The physical laws and constants of later universes become progressively tuned to conditions achieved in their predecessors. Subsequently created universes reach the apex of evo- lution achieved in prior universes in a shorter span of time, or reach a higher apex in an equal time-span.

The evolution of local universes through cycles of the metaverse introduces a direction into the evolutionary process without a preconceived goal or telos. For the virtual domain, however, the process is linearly constructive: The overall process of evolution in the cosmos can be de- scribed in reference to the two fundamental elements energy and information.

In the manifest domain energy is conserved, trans- formed, and in each local universe becomes progressively unavailable. However, it is recycled in each new cycle of the meta- verse.

In the virtual domain, which is common to all local uni- verses, information is created and conserved, and it in-forms the manifest domain of each local universe. As a result local uni- verses become both more entropic and more in-formed, and the metaverse, energetically self-recycling, becomes progressively more in-formed.

Here we choose three issues for discussion: The classical, cat- egorically monistic alternatives are the following: The manifest particles that had sprung from the excita- tion of the virtual energy domain are the basic elements of reality. If so, consciousness in the universe is an epiphe- nomenon, a local and temporary by-product of the evo- lution of some species of systems constituted of these particles. The manifest entities that populate space and time are a secondary phenomenon: The essential feature of the universe is the evolution of the consciousness that is present in it.

Neither the materialist nor the idealist interpretation lacks experiential support.

They can con- clude that reality is material—mind and consciousness are epiphenomena. For them all of reality is in the form of mind; the rest is a human construction of conscious experience. A categorically monistic position espouses one of these view- points to the exclusion of the other.

This is not the only option.

The metaphysics of universal connectivity is ontologically unitary but not categorically monistic: These aspects are universal: Physical reality evolves into all of reality, and mind is an element throughout evolving reality. The principle of complementarity is borrowed from quan- tum physics.

Nils Bohr suggested that the wave- and the corpuscular- aspects of a particle are complementary—whether the one or the other comes to the fore depends on the kind of questions one asks and the kind of observations one makes. Independently of whether or not the complementarity principle fully accounts for the prop- erties of the quantum, an analogous principle offers an adequate account of the physical and the mental properties of the universe.

In the perspective of the external observer, it is the physical aspect that emerges: In the perspective of introspection, on the other hand, it is the mental aspect that appears: The potentials for both aspects are objectively given: Evolution in the successive universes realizes these potentials through an ongoing interaction between the virtual domain, which is the cosmic ple- num, and the manifest domain of the particles and particle sys- tems that populate the space and time of the given universe.

The mental potential is realized in the manifest domain corresponding to the level of evolution attained in multi-particle systems. A comparatively evolved system, such as the human, has a comparatively evolved brain and thus a correspondingly articu- lated mental potential.

This endows the human brain with a highly evolved capacity for receiving sensory signals from the manifest domain, and nonsensory in-formation from the virtual domain. Sensory information constitutes the familiar contents of everyday experience, whereas nonsensory in- formation, in modern societies generally repressed, comes to light mainly in the form of intuitions, images, archetypes, and the seemingly anomalous contents of altered-state experience.

This freedom derives from the reception of the rest of the universe in and by the systems, and from the response of the systems to the rest of the universe. This sensitivity is limited in simple systems, but it is highly evolved in complex organisms such as the human.

May 3, Electrical resistance changes occur as soon as the organism undergoes a pathological, physiological, or even psy- chological change. It appears that separation does not divide particles from each other.

Menos Kafatos, Robert Nadeau, and other cosmologists have shown that nonlocal types of correlation extend throughout space- time. The theory is marred by the consideration that at least six and possibly eleven dimensions are needed to accom- modate all of the vibrational modes of the strings.
