There's been some debate on the irreality forums[irreality.net] about some technical terminology like biosphere, and noosphere. Hopefully, this will stir up an appropriate ant's nest.

Non-Local Mind

Bell's Theorem demonstrated a connection-or-correlation between systems that are not causally related. That is, it entirely contradicts an assumption which governed science from Newton to Einstein--the assumption that all scientific laws must express a kind of "billiard-ball" model of the world, in which every moving ball is only influenced by the balls with which it collides. Bell's math demonstrated that some sort of non-local "field" or perhaps an "implicate order" controlled the balls even if they had no mechanical connection with each other.

Nick Herbert liked to call this non-local relationship "the Cosmic Glue."

Saul Paul Sirag, another physicist, showed me a paper by Dr. E.H. Walker, "The Compleat Quantum Anthropologist," which argued that mind, like quantum systems, functions non-locally. This made sense to me because all systems that divide mind from matter lead to intractable paradoxes. It also made sense because it gave me, for the first time, a model that could explain some of my more "cosmic" LSD experiences. Dr. Walker's paper started me thinking in terms of a Local Self, inside space-time, and a Non-Local Self, outside space-time. This may have been what the Zen Master, Sensaki, meant when he spoke of Little Mind and Big Mind. Such a model not only accounted for LSD voyages but it also made a good container for all the confusing phenomena which parapsychologists put into separate bags and call ESP, precognition, out of body experience, synchronicity--all the strange "psychic" events that have dogged me all my life (which I can no longer attribute to the Atheist's God, Mr. Random Chance).

In terms of Walker's interpretation of Bell's Theorem, all of these non-Newtonian aberrations merely represent sudden information flow from Non-Local Mind to Local Mind.

Robert Anton Wilson, Cosmic Trigger II, 1991


Jack Johnson - Never Know
I heard this old story before
Where the people keep on killing for their metaphors
But don't leave much up to the imagination,
So I, wanna give this imagery back
But I know it just ain’t so easy like that
So I turn the page and read the story again
and again and again
It sure seems the same, with a different name
We're breaking and rebuilding
and we're growing
always guessing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
Were trying but where is this all leading?
We'll Never Know

It all happened so much faster than you could say disaster
Wanna take a time lapse and look at it backwards
Find the last one and maybe that’s just the answer that we're after
But after all we're just a bubble in a boiling pot
Just one breath in a chain of thought
We're moments just combusting
We feel certain but we'll never, never know
It sure seems the same, give it a different name
We're begging and we're needing
and we're trying and we're breathing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
We're helping, rebuilding and we're growing
Never Know

Knock, knock coming door to door
To tell ya that their metaphor is better than yours
And you can either sink or swim things are looking pretty grim
If you don’t believe in what they're spoon feeding
Its got no feeling so I read it again and again and again

It sure seems the same so many different names
Our hearts are strong our heads are weak
We'll always be competing

Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
But the truth is all we got is questions
We'll Never Know
Never Know
Never Know
