In the paper titled “Quantum Measurement, Consciousness and the Soul: A New, Alternative Position” by Werbos, 2018a , he concludes about the problem of quantum measurement: “All of this physics doesExpand
How Consciousness Becomes the Physical Universe
Issues related to consciousness in general and human mental processes in particular remain the most difficult problem in science. Progress has been made through the development of quantum theory,Expand
Quantum mechanics, objective reality, and the problem of consciousness
The hard problem in consciousness is the problem of understanding how physical processes in the brain could give rise to subjective conscious experience. In this paper, I suggest that in order toExpand
The Consciousness of Reality
Finally, the human mind faces its own nature. By extending the information-theoretic paradigm, the informational nature of consciousness is uncovered. This gives rise to the very first formalExpand
Quantum Physics and Consciousness: The Quest for a Common Conceptual Foundation
Similar problems keep reappearing in both the discussion about the “hard” problem of consciousness and in fundamental issues in quantum theory. We argue that the similarities are due to commonExpand
The Subjective Interpretation of Quantum Physics
This paper proposes a new interpretation of quantum physics that encompasses the first-person and third-person perspective and provides a solution to the mind-body problem. First, a definition ofExpand
A Quantum Model of Non-illusory Free Will
Contemporary science and philosophy are dominated by a mechanistic materialist metaphysic that treats consciousness as a derivative aspect of the brain’s physical state, with no independent causalExpand
Focus Issue: Quantum Brain/Mind/Consciousness 2010 (Part II) Article Quantum Physics and the Ontology of Mind
The aim of this paper is to construct an ontology to account consistently for both the objective and subjective worlds. First, I will determine the fundamental properties of consciousness from aExpand
God, Mind, Evolution, and Quantum Reality Based on Process Metaphysics
The genesis of actuality from potentiality, with the apparent role of the observer, is an important and unsolved problem which essentially defines science‟s view of reality in a variety of contexts.Expand
Consciousness In The Universe
The nature of consciousness, the mechanism by which it occurs in the brain, and its ultimate place in the universe are unknown. We proposed in the mid 1990's that consciousness depends onExpand
