Decisions, decisions, decisions. All I ever do is make decisions. Do I go to bed now or shall I finish reading the article? I can finish it tomorrow. So, I decide to go to bed now, hoping my bed and my bedroom is in the same place I left it. I would expect it to be. Or do I command it to be there? Or maybe I should pray that it will be there. Okay, I'll do all four. Expect, command, hope and pray.

Good article. Strange, but good.

Is Consciousness Quantum?

No, for then Consciousness would be finite, locked within the boundries of a word, Quantum.

"The process of creation is a quantum event . . . "

Input, process, output. The logic. It would seem that the quantum is the output of the process. The process would include a list of variables to choose from, then making the choices one decision at a time, then a sequential mixing or manipulation of those variables (data), which produces a particular output which would exist as discrete forms of solidness in the quantum. Or actually is the quantum -- --the product, the output, the creation.

So consciousness must be the programmer. The intelligence that wants to create a product, or a situation.

(I think too many people are nothing but data, things to be processed and manipulated in someone else's programs -- programs written by a lesser and not so benign intelligence.)

Many ways to apply the logic here, TBP. Making my synapses fire at the quantum level.

As above, so below. The 'above' is the intelligence where the program is written, the 'below' is the quantum universe, the product.

Let me offer this model: Perhaps the firing synapses of the intelligence bump into the membrane surrounding the quantum and cause all those little superstrings in the potential to jump around -- which become data points in a micro-program, the output of which become data points, parameters passed to the macro-program, all working in concert to provide a universe.

Now why the universe was created is another topic. I'll think about that.

Consciousness is analog.

Lately, I've been contemplating the idea, if I understand it correctly (I am emphatically NOT a scientist), that things in a quantum Universe are essentially wavicles.

Nossir.

All things in the univers are essentially popsicles.

Have you seen a movie called, "What The Bleep Do We Know?"
It's an interesting little movie on the subject available at Blockbuster or on the net.

The essential principle is that there is an observer consciousness that is the overriding force in the world, that we all live in that consciousness and that it reveals itself through each of us. It is only when it acts as us that the quantum wave of all things collapses and it settles into an "objective" reality, all other possibilities being discarded in this experience.

God draws a distinct difference between himself and the created universe:

Rom 1:25 For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Quantum theory supports spirituality and religion very well.
