Pin It

 

Roger Penrose made a remark in “The Emperor’s New Mind”[1] that supports Fred Hoyle’s intuitive anticipation of Yakir Aharonov’s mathematics of the back-from-the-future “destiny vector”, limited though it is to signal locality.

 

“Suppose there is even something vaguely teleological about the effects of consciousness, so that a future impression might affect a past action.”

 

This is “signal nonlocality” in strong violation of quantum theory, but not of the more general post-quantum theory that seems to be the essential signature of living matter as distinguished from the dead particle beams of unitary S-Matrix theory that Gerardus ‘t Hooft bases his theory of reality on. Einstein said to make theoretical physics as simple as possible, but not simpler than is possible.
