Zeno’s Paradox and the Quantum Revolution
The full implications of the quantum revolution have not really sufficiently penetrated our classical understanding of the world. Einstein’s development of “spacetime” perpetuates the classical problem of proposing an absolute reality independent of the reality that creates it. Biocentrism reveals the ways that contemporary physics recapitulates the problems of Zeno’s paradox in the infinite divisibility of “spactime.” It also reveals the little understood implications of quantum theory for our understanding of consciousness. Few really know of the experiments

One observes an electron, and it is a particle, like a little bullet, obeying the laws of classical physics; yet as soon as you are not looking it behaves like a wave. Scientists have discovered that if they “watch” a subatomic particle as it passes through slits in a barrier, it behaves like a particle, like an object; it passes through one or the other slits. But if the scientists do not observe the particle then it observes the behavior of a wave. The two-slit experiment has many versions, but in short: if observed, particles behave like objects; if unobserved, they behave like a wave and can go through more than one slit at the same time. Dubbed “quantum weirdness”, the wave-particle duality has befuddled scientists for decades. But what biocentrism explains clearly is that the explanation for such weirdness, the “uncertainty principle,” and the other remarkable experiments such as Bell’s inequality (suggesting the simultaneity of events) becomes straightforward: Only an act of observation can bring a particle into existence. Unobserved, nothing happens. The implications are clear: consciousness is the determining factor in a life created universe. A wave of probability isn’t an event or or a phenomena, it is a description of the likelihood …show more content…
What, ultimately, does the genome tell us about ourselves? The genome determines the structure of the body and our sense-organs and, therefore, reality itself. The sphere of physical reality (which is observer determined) for a worm and a human are decidedly different. However, the genome itself is carbon-based. Carbon is formed at the heart of stars and super-nova explosions, formative processes of the universe. Life as we know it is limited by our spatio-temporal logic, i.e. “the genome” traps us in the universe with which we are familiar. Animals (including those that evolved in the past) span part of the spectrum of that possibility. There are surely other information systems that correspond to other physical realities, universes based on logic completely different from ours and not based on space and time. The universe of space and time belong uniquely to us genome-based animals.
We need to see how for each life there is a universe, its own universe. This involves spheres of reality that we each generate. Each of our spheres of existence interacts with and influences through interaction the spheres of existence of each human individual and of each
