Massimiliano Sassoli de Bianchi received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the Federal Institute of Technology, in Lausanne (EPFL) in 1995, with a study on time-observables in quantum scattering theory. His research activities are focused on the foundations of physics, quantum theory, and consciousness. He has written essays, popular science books, children’s stories, and has published numerous research articles in international journals, both in physics and the study of consciousness. He is a life member of the American Physical Society and the American Association of Physics Teachers, as well as a full member of the Society for Scientific Exploration and the International Academy of Consciousness. He is currently the director of the LAB – Laboratory of Basic Self-research, and the editor of the journal AutoRicerca.

Taking Quantum Physics and Consciousness Seriously: What does it mean?

05/22/2015 | 06:20-07:20

 

Abstract:

Both quantum physics and consciousness, if taken seriously, point to the existence of larger realities, extending beyond the limits of our spatial theatre. This doesn’t mean, however, that they would necessarily be the same realities, as is often assumed, due to prejudices rooted in materialism. In this talk the author will present a solution to the measurement problem, not requiring deus ex machina intervention from the consciousness, and will explain how the new research domain called quantum cognition has provided us with a new thought-provoking model for the non-spatial nature of the microscopic entities, which can possible also shed some light on the nature of those non-ordinary realities that we humans are able to experience, when in more expanded states of consciousness.

Sumario:

Tanto la física cuántica como la conciencia, si se toman seriamente, apuntan a la existencia de una realidad mucho mayor que se extiende más allá de los límites de nuestro teatro especial. Esto no significa, sin embargo, que necesariamente deberían ser las mismas realidades, como a menudo se presupone, debido a los prejuicios arraigados en el materialismo. En esta conferencia el autor presentará una solución al problema de medición, sin requerir la intervención de ningún deus ex machina de la conciencia, y explicará cómo el nuevo campo de investigación llamado cognición cuántica, nos ha dotado con un nuevo modelo de reflexión para la naturaleza no-espacial de las entidades microscópicas, que posiblemente pueden arrojar también algo de luz sobre la naturaleza de esas realidades no-ordinarias que los seres humanos somos capaces de experimentar en los estados de expansión de conciencia.

Resumo:

A física quântica e a consciência, se levadas a sério, apontam para a existência de realidades maiores, que se estendem para além dos limites de nosso teatro espacial. Isso não significa, porém, que sejam necessariamente as mesmas realidades, como muitas vezes se pensa, devido a preconceitos baseados no materialismo. Nesta palestra, o autor apresentará uma solução para o problema de medição, não necessitando de qualquer intervenção deus ex machina da consciência, e explicará como o novo domínio de pesquisa chamado conhecimento quântico (quantum cognition) forneceu-nos um novo modelo instigante para a natureza não-espacial das entidades microscópicas, que, possivelmente, também poderá esclarecer algo sobre a natureza das realidades não-ordinárias que nós, seres humanos somos capazes de experimentar, quando em estados expandidos de consciência.
