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.
