Part Two of The Current
Hippie Physics - David Kaiser, MIT
"We started this segment with a clip from physicist Jack Sarfatti. Perhaps not as famous as Neils Bohr or Albert Einstein, but according to MIT Cosmologist David Kaiser, Sarfatti holds an important place in science history, too ".... part of a group of New Age physicists in the 1970s who helped rescue physics from the doldrums.


I haven't completely given up on entanglement signaling using the non-orthogonal Glauber coherent states with a pair of interferometers, Faraday rotators, phase plates et-al. I mean within orthodox quantum theory bearing in mind of course Stapp's general proof that it's not possible based on linearity, unitarity and implicitly orthogonality of the base states - the latter being the possible loop hole.


Of course, beyond that motivated by Daryl Bem's latest "feeling the future" data in people, both Stapp and I do agree that a more general non-orthodox extension of quantum theory - as general relativity is to special relativity as an analogy - with "signal nonlocality" violating Abner Shimony's "passion at a distance" and the Born rule that probability ~ squared modulus of complex Feynman histories quantum amplitude (e.g. Antony Valentini) is warranted by the facts.


A clue is that (ODLRO) spontaneous broken ground state symmetry ("More is different" emergent order) with Higgs amplitude and Goldstone phase quanta excited out of the Bose-Einstein c-number condensate does not obey the nonlocal linear unitary Schrodinger equation in entangled configuration space 3N + N. Rather, it obeys a low energy effective field local nonlinear non-unitary Landau-Ginzburg equation in single-particle ordinary 3D + 1 spacetime. Indeed, the gravitational field tetrads and spin connections for local inertial frames LIFs can emerge from such a Higgs-Goldstone field precipitated at the moment of creation of our observable universe sandwiched between our past particle horizon and our future de Sitter dark energy event horizon that may well be a Seth Lloyd computer and indeed the "hologram screen" invented by 't Hooft and Susskind. This would necessitate the Wheeler-Feynman-Hoyle-Narlikar-Cramer-Aharonov ideas of retro-causal advanced signal "transactional" "post-selections on the final cause hologram screen cosmic computer (e.g. P.K. Dick's VALIS & Teilhard de Chardin's "Omega Point."). Crazy idea to be sure, but is it crazy enough to be true? ;-)

We started this segment with a clip from physicist Jack Sarfatti. Perhaps not as famous as Neils Bohr or Albert Einstein, but according to MIT Cosmologist David Kaiser, Sarfatti holds an important place in science history, too .... part of a group of New Age physicists in the 1970s who helped rescue physics from the doldrums.


Kaiser writes about how these groovy big-time thinkers and their big ideas drove a revival of quantum theory in his new book How the Hippies Saved Physics. He joined us from Boston.
Hippie Physics - David Harrison


So, a science once dominated by slide rules became dominated by people who let the rules slide. Our next guest was part of the movement and makes an appearance in Kaiser's book.
David Harrison is a senior lecturer of physics at the University of Toronto where he created a course called The Zen of Physics. David joined us in our Toronto studio.
