Foreword

“The future, and the future alone, is the home of explanation.”

Henry Dwight Sedgwick

“Sarfatti's Cave is the name I'll give to the Caffe Trieste in San Francisco, where Jack Sarfatti, Ph.D. in physics, writes his poetry, evokes his mystical, miracle-working ancestors, and has conducted a several-decade-long seminar on the nature of reality … to a rapt succession of espresso scholars. ... It's Jack Sarfatti against the world, and he is indomitable. …One of his soaring theories is that things which have not happened yet can cause events in the present.” Gold, Herbert. Bohemia: Where Art, Angst, Love & Strong Coffee Meet.

There is now a significant body of results on quantum interactions with closed timelike curves (CTCs) in the quantum information literature, … As a consequence, there is a prima facie argument exploiting entanglement that CTC interactions would enable superluminal and, indeed, effectively instantaneous signaling. …. Using the consistency condition, we show that there is a procedure that allows Alice to signal to Bob in the past via relayed superluminal communications between spacelike-separated Alice and Clio, and spacelike-separated Clio and Bob. This opens the door to time travel paradoxes in the classical domain … offering a possible window on what we might expect in a future theory of quantum gravity. Quantum interactions with closed timelike curves and superluminal signaling, Jeffrey Bub and Allen Stairs, PHYSICAL REVIEW A 89, 022311 (2014)

‘In this case, Bob possesses the unknown state even before Alice implements the teleportation. Causality is not violated because Bob cannot foresee Alice’s measurement result, which is completely random. But, if we could pick out only the proper result, the resulting “projective” teleportation would allow us to travel along spacelike intervals, to escape from black holes, or to travel in time.” Seth Lloyd et-al

This is a series of blog essays about teleological destiny, quick time travel to colonize Earthlike exoplanets through stargates, and the possibility that we are three-dimensional hologram images in a virtual reality programmed by a cosmological conscious super-intelligence that is alive and well on our future two-dimensional dark energy edge of space that we can ever hope to see with light signals. My speculative hypothesis-conjecture of this book is that our idea of time and cause and effect is profoundly wrong. In particular the “unproven theorem paradox” of time travel is not a paradox at all.

“The “unproved theorem” paradox points out that if there are CTCs, then it might be possible to take a published proof of a theorem into the past and present it to someone, who then uses it to produce the very manuscript that leads to the theorem’s publication Bub & Stairs op-cit

Evidence on “brain presponse” (Libet, Radin, Bierman, Bem) suggests that our consciousness and creativity are such meme self-creating strange loops. The universe does only not emerge out of the past, but is also pulled toward the future for a purpose. This idea is not new in philosophy, but has reappeared in physics starting with the work of John Archibald Wheeler and Richard Feynman in the 1940s. This back-from-the-future effect is needed to understand the nature of both dark matter and dark energy that is most of the stuff in our accelerating universe and most importantly to understand our own consciousness and how to reach the stars and beyond.

Jack Sarfatti • There is both outcome dependence & parameter dependence. Orthodox quantum theory's no-signaling arguments assert both are violated. In Stapp's simple proof using the set of four Bell pair states {|Alice, Alice', Bob,Bob'>} Here "Alice" & "Bob" denote actual OUTCOME eigenvalues Stapp also assumes Born's probability rule - an axiom of quantum theory like Euclid's Fifth has signal strength S S(Alice) = Partial Trace over Bob & Bob'{|Alice><Alice| |Alice, Alice'; Bob, Bob'><Alice,Alice';Bob,Bob'|} = 1/2 This result has both parameter and outcome (eigenvalue) independence consistent with Abner Shimony's "passion at a distance". However, the PARAMETER INDEPENDENCE only works when <Bob|Bob'> = 0. For the normalized hybrid entangled state (1/2)^1/2[|1>Alice|z>Bob + |0>Alice|w>|Bob] where z & w are complex numbers each representing amplitude and phase of a coherent Glauber state displaced minimum Gaussian wave packet with Poisson Born statistics in Fock space, where |z| is the square root of the mean boson occupation number The usual "Born" trace rule is then S(1)Alice = (1/2)[1 + |<z|w>|^2Bob] |z> & |w> are MACROSCOPICALLY DISTINGUISHABLE NON-ORTHOGONAL STATES that naturally arise as "More is different" (P.W. Anderson) Higgs-Goldstone local order parameters from spontaneous symmetry breaking in the ground states of complex many-boson systems. Not only that, but the bosons need not be real, they can also be virtual off-mass shell as what we are surrounded by the near electromagnetic fields as distinct from radiation fields. The above state has entanglement signal nonlocality in the form of PARAMETER DEPENDENCE. Bob signals Alice without the need of a classical signal key to decrypt Bob's message. The Born probability rule is VIOLATED. Forcing a parameter-dependent normalization is ad-hoc and is an additional postulate not found in orthodox quantum theory that must be independently tested. e.g. S*(1)Alice = (1/2[1 + |<z|w>|^2Bob])^1/2[|1>Alice|z>Bob + |0>Alice|w>|Bob] = 1/2 Other examples: the electrostatic field of a charge in its rest frame is a coherent Glauber state of zero frequency virtual photons with a continuum of 3D wave vectors k whose density ~ 1/k^2 Similarly, ordinary crystals of daily life are coherent Glauber states of zero frequency phonons with a discrete spectrum of wave vectors k that are harmonics of the inverse lattice spacings of the unit cell. Wilczek's time crystals have a discrete spectrum of finite frequencies in addition - no big deal. The static gravity fields of the Sun and Earth et-al are coherent Glauber states of virtual spin 2 gravitons - possibly also virtual spin 1 and spin 0 of finite range - needs investigation.
