Mind, matter, and quantum mechanics
A theory of psychophysical phenomena is proposed. It resolves simultaneously four basic problems of science, namely the problems of the connections between:(1) mind and matter,(2) quantum theory andExpand

A detailed argument given here shows why, in ascientific approach to this problem, it is necessary to use the morebasic principles of quantum physics, which bring the observer into thedynamics, rather than to accept classical precepts that are profoundlyincorrect precisely at the crucial point of the role of humanconsciousness in the dynamics of human brains.

A Bell-type theorem without hidden variables
It is shown that no theory that satisfies certain premises can exclude faster-than-light influences. The premises include neither the existence of hidden variables nor counterfactual definiteness,Expand

Why Classical Mechanics Cannot Naturally Accommodate Consciousness but Quantum Mechanics Can
It is argued on the basis of certain mathematical characteristics that classical mechanics is not constitutionally suited to accommodate consciousness, whereas quantum mechanics is. TheseExpand

Bell's theorem and world process
SummaryThe noncausal structure events demanded by Bell's theorem are shown to follow naturally from a theory of events similar to White-head's. In spite of this noncausal structure on the level ofExpand

Bell's theorem in an indeterministic universe
A variation of Bell's theorem that deals with the indeterministic case is formulated and proved within the logical framework of Lewis's theory of counterfactuals. Expand
