Quantum Cosmology and the Role of Consciousness

Arthur E. Pletcher


Neuroscience has theorized the ”two minds” model of the human brain from research on post-surgery ”dual consciousness” of split-brain patients. This article attempts to explain the functioning role of oppositional consciousness dynamics, and how it interacts with quantum mechanics. This article proposes that consciousness is an interactive process of polarizing an observed source of higher dimensional R5 space onto a (cognitively modeled) collapsed R4 space. The dynamics of this process involve escalating (reinforcement loop) interaction within the dual and opposing mind of a single observer. This polarized (collapsed space) results in a lower dimensional, yet higher domain range, and resulting increased entropy. An intuitive and familiar example of escalating tribal dispute dynamics are constructed and formulated. The subsequent entropic effects of information exchange are then calculated as transitioning from Gaussian to power-law distribution. Analogies are drawn between mapped topology, inscribed wave patterns, superposition, collapse, constructive and destructive interference, and discrete energy. This model is then generally framed within the full scope of cosmology, from Planck scale to Macro-scale, to explain the effects of accelerating expansion and galaxy rotation curves. Relativity effects are also calculated. Speculation is avoided with mathematical evidence and patterns.
