Whether or not we get there is not as important as that we invoke […]

Quantum Hyper-Dimensionality

Context: Is reality a game of quantum mirrors? A new theory suggests it might be It is as though we exist on the interior of a spherical object embedded in higher dimensional space, the half-mirrored hyper-surface projecting all manner of rippling labyrinthine reflections that inflate in and as our phenomenological experience of a manifest world […]

If probabilities are real, then possibility and impossibility are as real (as functions of probability) as is Hawaii or chicken soup. The unsettling consequences of quantum theory seem to be quite conveniently swept under the ontological (and epistemological) carpet but the fact remains that material reality is deeply infused by and in some mysteriously unintelligible […]
