Ervin Laszlo: If Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer, Can It Connect You To The World?

Scott K

The last article this morning that really made me smile. Reminded me of ol' Hermes Trismegistus...

As above, so below

The Magician displaying the Hermetic concept of as above, so below.

These words circulate throughout occult and magical circles, and they come from Hermetic texts. The concept was first laid out in The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, in the words "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing".

In accordance with the various levels of reality: physical, mental, and spiritual, this relates that what happens on any level happens on every other. This is however more often used in the sense of the microcosm and the macrocosm. The microcosm is oneself, and the macrocosm is the universe. The macrocosm is as the microcosm, and vice versa; within each lies the other, and through understanding one (usually the microcosm) you can understand the other.

Carry forward, this is the article I read.

ARTICLE: Ervin Laszlo: If Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer,  Can It Connect You To The World?

Biochemical processes alone could never have coordinated this exacting process with such speed and precision. It seems that the human brain develops through an instantaneous, nonlocal exchange of information via the process known in physics as entanglement. Our brain is an entangled "macroscopic quantum system," and it functions as a "quantum computer."

There is further evidence to support this conclusion. The human brain appears to have an enormous -- and conventionally inexplicable -- capacity for storing information. Famed mathematician John von Neumann calculated that during an average lifetime of seventy years we accumulate some 280 trillion bits of information. This volume of information doesn't just disappear without a trace: evidence from psychotherapy and research on non-ordinary states of consciousness shows that all, or almost all, of the information is retrievable. This means that potentially everything we have ever experienced in our lifetime can be recalled. And if it can be recalled, then it must be stored somehow, somewhere. While this is obviously true, the storage repository is not necessarily within our brain.
