Jack notes that I understand his ideas better than Dan. I agree with Jack.

I have come to a different point of view than Jack re: signal non-locality.

I now attribute the data to non-computability in human consciousness.
Tony Valentini's signal nonlocality is the mechanism for Penrose's non-computability!

I also suggest non-computability may resemble time machine physics in some cases where predictive information simulates an effective alternative future.
Signal nonlocality allows retro-causal precognitive remote viewing!

Although this is less rigorous than Jack's idea of a physical signal between locally non-causally interacting regions of spacetime, I disagree there is definitive evidence for any kind of 'signal' in a causal sense.

 

Without signal nonlocality telepathic images in the mind are impossible. All you would see would be random noise - white noise - nada! Indeed, it's worse than that - you could not have any consciousness at all! No non-random qualia of any kind! You would be only a Zombie - a machine with classical AI - no inner life at all - not even ordinary consciousness.
Get it?


(On the other hand Kit Green claims evidence for E/M signals affecting the brain.)

But since these are murky waters at best it is hard to say for certain what is swimming underneath the waves.

I disinvited myself from this meeting because Michio Kaku and other physicists decided not to come and I would have been the only physicist there with New Age speakers on topics I am not interested in. 
 
 
This workshop will take the listener on a whirlwind tour beginning with the foundational principles of David Bohm’s implicate order, and how that relates to the quest for finding a grand unified theory, or a “theory of everything” as in Hawking’s Mind of God. We will then build on these principles of quantum theory to explore  some original conceptions of the cosmology of time, and make a compelling scientific case for the possibility of time travel, to the future, and/or the past (retrocausality).  We will show that faster than light phenomenon may be possible through warping spacetime, and delve into the possible reality of parapsychological phenomenon, including an explanation of UFOs as terrestrial timeships from our own future. 
Jack Sarfatti, theoretical physicist, co-founder of the legendary Physics Consciousness Research Group, and student/research fellow of David Bohm, is the author of several books, including Space Time and Beyond: Toward and Explanation of the Unexplainable (with  Fred Alan Wolf and Bob Toben); and Super Cosmos, Destiny Matrix, and Space Time and Beyond II. Sarfatti presents original ideas on the frontiers of modern science, and is one of few highly credentialed physicists who has the courage to take on paranormal issues, such as time travel, psychic phenomenon, and UFOs while remaining in the framework of established relativistic and quantum theory.

IT FROM Q-BIT 2

Posted by: JackSarfatti |
Tagged in: Untagged 

 l is the destiny/advanced back-from-the-future spin 1 gravity field null past light cone / IT tetrad and n is the time-reverse history/retarded past-to-future light cone / null IT tetrad quadratic in the spinor (spin 1/2) Q-BITS.

Note that m & m* are products of past and future spinor Q-BITS.
The metric tensor gravity field of Einstein's gravity field are, in fact, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen entangled four Q-BIT strings.


The 2-component spinors are Q-BITS in the sense of quantum information theory. We see there are two kinds, advanced and retarded corresponding precisely to Aharonov-Vaidman's pair of destiny and history state vectors in Hilbert space growing out of Wheeler-Feynman's 1940 papers on classical electrodynamics and the Dirac radiation reaction enigma explained by Hoyle and Narlikar in numerous publications largely ignored in mainstream theoretical physics.

Indeed, the Q-BIT spinors may correspond to the 2D "cellular automata" on thermal (observer-dependent) cosmic (& black hole observer-independent) event horizon null geodesic congruence hologram computing screens of Gerard 't Hooft's "dimensional reduction".

Obviously the AdS/CFT correspondence is a part of a more general principle even if Ed Witten, Lenny Susskind & Co cannot yet prove it mathematically - someone will.

I simply assume intuitively for sake of argument a dS/CFT duality  (Gauss's theorem essentially) where CFT is on a 2D thermal horizon of any kind and dS is in the interior 3D bulk. Don't need 5D yet.

AdS /zpf < 0 models dark matter from virtual fermion-antifermion pairs (isolated closed vacuum loops that gravitate from the SEP).

dS /zpf > 0 models dark energy from virtual bosons that anti-gravitate from the SEP.

It's a matter of scale "More is different" (P.W. Anderson) - we do not yet have an adequate physics of the vacuum yet, but it is obvious that we have dark matter when the short-scale density of virtual fermion closed loops in the interior retro-causal hologram image bulk exceeds the density of virtual bosons and that the large-scale dark energy exotic vacuum phase is the opposite. Therefore, looking for real dark matter particles on mass shell in LHC, in underground mines etc. is like looking for the Earth's motion through the mechanical Victorian aether - is my prediction for the record.

IT FROM QUBIT

The deep Newman-Penrose spin-frame structure of Wheeler-Feynman ---> Hoyle-Narlikar ---> Cramer ---> Aharonov-Vaidman

There are two kinds of Wheeler-Feynman QUBITs - advanced back from the future (support on local past light cone of emitter) & retarded past to future (support on future light cone of the emitter). Einstein's IT geometrodynamic field is an entangled 4 QUBIT STRING (In sense of quantum information theory) - note each term in the gravity metric tensor is a quartic product of advanced with retarded qubits -- similarly on the quadratic null light cone tetrad level.
See the pdf in Resources Physics

Note c^2(area of future horizon)^-1/2 ~ 10^17/10^26 ~ 10^-9 meters/sec^2

Hence their conclusion below is puzzling in my opinion.

kinematics

"Attempts to estimate the influence of global cosmological expansion on local systems are reviewed. Here “local” is taken to mean that the sizes of the considered systems are much smaller than cosmologically relevant scales. For example, such influences can affect orbital motions as well as configurations of compact objects, like black holes. Also discussed are how measurements based on the exchange of electromagnetic signals of distances, velocities, etc. of moving objects are influenced. As an application, orders of magnitude of such effects are compared with the scale set by the apparently anomalous acceleration of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts, which is 10^−9 m/s2. There is no reason to believe that the latter is of cosmological origin. However, the general problem of gaining a qualitative and quantitative understanding of how the cosmological dynamics influences local systems remains challenging, with only partial clues being so far provided by exact solutions to the field equations of general relativity."

This paper is not easy reading, but goes into the nitty gritty details on the complex kinematics of how to relate the abstract formalism of GR to real life NASA radar, Doppler measurements.


"VII. SUMMARY AND OUTLOOK
We think it is fair to say that there are no theoretical
hints that point towards a dynamical influence of cosmological
expansion comparable in size to, say, that of the
anomalous acceleration of the Pioneer spacecrafts.
There seems to be no controversy over this point,
though for completeness it should be mentioned that
there exist speculations Palle, 2005 according to which
it might become relevant for future missions. But such
speculations are often based on models which are not
easily related to the intended physical situation, like that
of Gautreau 1984. Rather, as the a¨ /a-improved Newtonian
analysis in Sec. III together with its justification
given in the subsequent sections shows, there is no genuine
relativistic effect coming from cosmological expansion
at the levels of precision envisaged here.

On the other hand, as regards kinematical effects, the
situation is less unanimous. It is important to unambiguously
understand what is meant by “mapping out a trajectory,”
i.e., how to assign “times” and “distances.”

Eventually we compare a functional relation between
distance and time with observed data. That relation is
obtained by solving some equations of motion and it has
to be carefully checked whether the methods by which
the tracking data are obtained match the interpretation
of the coordinates in which the analytical problem is
solved. In our way of speaking, dynamical effects really
influence the worldline of the object in question whereas
kinematical effects change the way in which one and the
same worldline is mapped out from another worldline
representing the observer. Here we have derived exact
results concerning the influence of cosmic expansion on
this mapping procedure, which allow one to reliably estimate
upper bounds on their magnitude. They turn out
to be too small to be of any relevance in current satellite
trackings, which is in accord with naive expectation but
in contrast to some statements found in the literature."

Oddly enough 't Hooft does not appear to be aware of the work of Antony Valentini on signal nonlocality. Another Nobel physics Laureate, Brian Josephson disagrees with 't Hooft on this issue.

“We may regard the present state of the universe as the effect of its past and the cause of its

future. An intellect which at any given moment knew all of the forces that animate nature and the

mutual positions of the beings that compose it, if this intellect were vast enough to submit the

data to analysis, could condense into a single formula the movement of the greatest bodies of the

universe and that of the lightest atom; for such an intellect nothing could be uncertain and the

future just like the past would be present before its eyes." Newton

 

In contrast, today we think that we may regard the present state of the universe as the effect of both its past and its future in a Novikov loop in time. Our future 2D event horizon hologram 't Hooft cellular automaton may be a conscious super-computer in which all past events are its 3D hologram images - a really crazy idea of course. Is it crazy enough to be true?

THE IMPLICATIONS OF A COSMOLOGICAL INFORMATION BOUND FOR COMPLEXITY, QUANTUM INFORMATION AND THE NATURE OF PHYSICAL LAW

P.C.W. Davies

"The finite age of the universe and the existence of cosmological horizons provides a strong argument that the observable universe represents a finite causal region with finite material and informational resources. A similar conclusion follows from the holographic principle. In this paper I address the question of whether the cosmological information bound has implications for fundamental physics. Orthodox physics is based on Platonism: the laws are treated as infinitely precise, perfect, immutable mathematical relationships
that transcend the physical universe and remain totally unchanged by physical processes, however extreme. If instead the laws of physics are regarded as akin to computer software, with the physical universe as the corresponding hardware, then the finite computational capacity of the universe imposes a fundamental limit on the precision of the laws and the specifiability of physical states. That limit depends on the age of the universe. I examine how the imprecision of the laws impacts on the evolution of highly entangled states and on the problem of dark energy."

Quite trivially:

Unruh-Hawking temperature at the horizon is 1/(area)^1/2

dark energy density is 1/(area) ~ 10^-7 ergs/cc

h = c = kB = G = 1

Any school boy can now understand why the entropy of the early universe is small by 10^123 from its future constant value, and why we age as the universe speeds up in its expansion causing our observer-dependent horizon that is also the Wheeler-Feynman total absorber of last resort.

When a photon is absorbed it disappears - effectively f = 0, well that's what happens to photons we emit because their wavelength gets stretched by the expanding space and the stretch is infinite at the finite co-moving distance to our future horizon that bounces back the advanced return signal to make the Cramer transaction.

Professor M. Stoneham pointed out that in a dispersive medium there are three "c" s, phase speed, group speed, signal speed. Which one should we use in G/c^4?

I have used c' = c/n

n = index of refraction

so that would normally be phase speed. 

group speed is df/dk

phase speed is f/k

signal speed is more tricky.

Also here, and here.
