Consciousness plays a crucial role in quantum physics, as proven by experiments that show particles do not exist until observed by a conscious observer. The power of consciousness is vast and unimaginable. In this thought-provoking video, Archana Raghuram delves into the question of what is an observer and how the behavior of particles is connected to the behavior of an ‘observer’. She brilliantly explains it with a simple and relatable, everyday analogy.
Video Summary With Timestamps
- 00:00 An observer in quantum physics is not an inanimate detector or measuring device, but rather a conscious entity, as proven by several experiments that failed to rule out the role of consciousness in bringing particles into existence.
- 01:45 A particle is like a ghost in a haunted house, formless and undefined until observed, and physicists are like ghost hunters trying to determine its true nature.
- 03:00 A ghost takes on a human form only when observed by a conscious observer, as proven by a ghost hunter's failed attempts to capture the ghost on camera.
- 04:27 A Ghost Hunter and a time traveler make a plan to capture the image of a ghost by having the time traveler go back in time to see the ghost's previous form, which cannot be altered.
- 05:31 A ghost takes on a human form even when not observed because it knows someone will observe it in the future, which raises questions about particles that can look into the future and change their behavior as if time did not exist.
- 06:57 A particle does not exist until it is observed by a conscious Observer, who has the ability to indirectly reduce its presence and can change its behavior based on future observations.
- 08:03 Scientists overcame the influence of their intentions on entangled particles in an experiment, using light from distant quasars to determine how a particle would be measured, proving quantum physics' revelations on consciousness and winning the Nobel Prize for physics.
- Scientists had to consider the influence of their intentions on entangled particles in an experiment, which was a stumbling block in proving the theory of quantum physics' revelations on consciousness.
- Scientists at MIT used light from distant quasars to determine how a particle would be measured, eliminating the possibility of their thoughts and intentions interfering with the experiment, and this experiment won the Nobel Prize for physics.
- 10:33 Consciousness impacts reality, only conscious observers can bring particles into existence, entangled particles mirror each other instantaneously, and the power of consciousness is vast and unimaginable according to quantum physics.
- Consciousness has a profound impact on reality, as only a conscious observer can bring a particle into existence, entangled particles can mirror each other instantaneously, and the intention and actions of the observer can change the past behavior of a particle, leading quantum physics to conclude that the universe is not real and that the power of consciousness is vast and unimaginable.
- The fundamental question of who or what is an observer and the existence of consciousness outside of human beings will be examined in the next post, along with scientific theories and their alignment with ancient philosophy.
