Quantum Unravelling of Perception by Active Consciousness

Leonid Il'ichov


Some hypothetical quantum operation is assumed to underline our perception of the external world. Choosing the so-called unravelling of the operation, we can change the probabilities of impressions. There explicitly evaluated an extremal unravelling which minimize the informational content of impressions and so make the picture of the external world most predictable. Being applied to sequences of impressions, the concept of the extremal unravelling yields the phenomenon of distinctive 'quantum prognostics'. Communication between conscious minds is also possible by means of varying unravellings.
