Resonance is discussed by Carver Mead in his book Collective Electrodynamics (MIT 2000):
"... In our investigation of radiative coupling, we use a superconducting resonator as a model system. ... we can build such a resonator from a superconducting loop and a capacitor ... the coupling of ... two loops is the same, whether retarded or advanced potentials are used. Any loop couples to any other on its light cone, whether past or future. ... The total phase accumulation in a loop is the sum of that due to its own current, and that due to currents in other loops far away. ... normal modes correspond to stationary states of the system. Once the system is oscillating in one of these modes, it will continue to do so forever. To understand energy transfer between the resonators, we can use mixtures of normal modes. ... Any energy leaving one resonator is tranferred to some other resonator, somewhere in the universe. The energy in a single resonator alternates between the kinetic energy of the electrons (inductance), and the potential energy of the electrons (capacitance). With the two resonators coupled, the energy shifts back and forth between the two resonators in such a way that the total energy is constant ... The conservation of energy holds despite an arbitraty separation between the resonators; it is a direct result of the symmetry of the advanced and retarded potentials. There is no energy "in transit" between them. ... the universe contains a truly enormous number of resonators ...[ For the 10^18 tubulin electrons of the human brain, the resonant frequencies are the same and exchanges of energy among them act to keep them locked in a collective coherent state. ]
... How does a single resonator behave in an inhomogeneous universe full of other matter? In the real universe [outside the collective coherent set of tubulin electrons], no two resonators have identical resonant frequencies for long; however, it is a common occurrence that two frequencies will cross, and that energy will be exchanged between the resonators during the crossing. From the point of view of collective electrodynamics, this exchange of energy is the microscopic origin of the thermodynamic behavior of the universe as we observe it. ... In a random universe, any particular phase is equally likely for any given crossing. A particular resonator is therefore equally likely to receive either an increment or a decrement due to a given crossing. ... In a random universe [unlike the collective coherent set of tubulin electrons], there is no first-order effect in which energy flows from the high-amplitude resonator to the low-amplitude resonator; there is, however, a second-order effect in which energy flows, on the average, from the high-amplitude resonator to the low-amplitude resonator. The rate of energy flow is proportional to the difference in energies, and to the inverse square of the distance. ...
... The coupling between two loops considered ...[above]... is called magnetic dipole coupling. It is characterized by its proportionality to the second derivative of the current with respect to time. ... A much stronger coupling can be obtained between two straight sections of wire ... We can imagine a resonator configuration for which this type of coupling is realizable: Two parallel capacitor plates [ corresponding to the two holes in a tubulin
where the tubulin electron can be stable located ] of capacitance C are connected by a straight section of superconducting wire of inductance L between their centers. Such a configuration ... is called an electric dipole. Because there are charges at the two ends of the dipole, we can have a contribution to the electric coupling from the scalar potential ... as well [as] from the magnetic coupling ... from the vector potential ... electric dipole coupling is stronger than magnetic dipole coupling by the square of the ratio of the wavelenght to the size of the element. ... For example, an atom half a nanometer in diameter radiates visible light of 500 nanometer wavelength. In this case, electric dipole coupling is a million times stronger than magnetic dipole coupling. ...
... we have treated the electron as a wave, continuous in space, carrying a continuous charge density with it. ... Arriving at the correct results required taking into account the interaction of the electron [ considered as a Compton Radius Vortex ] with itself, exactly as we have done in the case of the superconducting loop. The electron wave function depends on the potential [ electromagnetic and Bohm Quantum ]; the potential [ electromagnetic and Bohm Quantum with back-reaction ] depends of the charge density that is determined by the wave function. Thus, we have an inherently non-linear problem ... The nonlinearity ... poses some computational issues, but no conceptual issues. ... the nonlinear theory gives the correct energy levels for the hydrogen atom ... It is by now a common experimental fact that an atom, if sufficiently isolated from the rest of the universe, can stay in an excited state for an arbitrarily long period. ... The mechanism for initiating an atomic transition is not present in the isolated atom; it is the direct result of coupling with the rest of the universe. [ Compare the Quantum Zeno Effect. ] ...
... The electron wave function ... is particularly sensitive to coupling with other electrons; it is coupled either to far-away matter in the universe or to other electrons in a resonant cavity or other local structure.
In the initial parts of this monograph, we were able to ignore coupling to far-away matter because we used a collective structure in which there are 10^23 electrons, arranged in such a way that the collective properties intrinsic to the structure scaled as the square of the number of electrons. ... we ...[made]... a connection between the classical concept of force and the quantum nature of matter through the concept of momentum. ... We would expect the total momentum P of the collective electron system [ in a superconducting loop of wire ] to be the momentum per charge times the number of charges in the loop. If there are n charges per unit length of wire ... P = n q L I ... I = n q v ... and ... P = L (nq)^2 v . The momentum is proportional to the velocity, as it should be. It is also proportional to the size of the loop, as reflected by the inductance L. ... Instead of scaling linearly with the number of charges that take part in the motion, the momentum of a collective system scales as the square of the number of charges! ...[ The corresponding part of the human brain collective coherent system of tubulin electrons is the system of virtual graviphotons connecting pairs of tubulin electrons. ]
... In an arrangement where charges are constrained to move in concert, each charge produces phase accumulation, not only for itself but for all the other charges as well. So the inertia of each charge increases linearly with the number of charges moving in concert. The inertia of the ensemble of coupled charges must therefore increase as the square of the number of charges. ...an N-turn closely coupled coil has an inductance L = N^2 Lo. Once again, we see the collective interaction scaling as the square of the number of interacting charges. ... When two classical massive bodies ... are bolted together, the inertia of the resuting composite body is simply the sum of the two individual inertias. The inertia of a collective system, however, is a manifestation of the interaction, and cannot be assigned to the elements separately. ... Thus, it is clear that collective quantum systems do not have a classical correspondence limit. ... It is instructive to work out the magnitude of the electron inertia in a concrete case. A small superconducting magnet has 10^4 turns of NbTi wire approximately 0.1 mm in diameter. The magent is 7 cm long, and just under 5 cm in diameter, and produces a peak field of 7 tesla at a currrent of 40 amperes. The magnet weighs 0.5 kilograms, and has a measured inductance of approximately 0.5 henry. There are of the order of 10^28 electrons per cubic meter in the wire, or 10^20 electrons per meter length of wire, corresponding to approximately 10 coulombs of electronic charge per meter of wire. At 40 amperes, these electrons move at a velcoity v = 4 m / sec. the total length l of wire is about 10^3 meters, so the total electronic charge in the magnet is about 10^4 coulombs. Using these values, A = PHI / l = L I / l = 0.02 V sec / meter. The electromagnetic momentum p of an electron is just this vector potential multiplied by the electronic charge; from this, we can infer an electromagnetic mass m for each electron:
q A = 3.2 x 10^(-21) coulomb V sec / meter = m v
m = 10^(-21) kg
For comparison, the mass of a free electron is approximately 10^(-30) kg, and the rest mass of a proton is a factor 1800 larger than that of an electron. The electromagnetic mass of an electron in our magnet is thus a factor of 10^9 larger than the rest mass of a free electron. ...[ The electromagnetic mass of all the electrons in the magnet is
10^20 electrons / meter x 10^3 meters x 10^(-21) kg / electron = 100 kg
]... The total inertia of the electron system in the magnet is much larger than the actual mass of all the atoms making up the magnet [ 0.5 kg ]. ...
... We have developed a detailed description of the energy-transfer process between macroscopic quantum resonators ... We are now in a position to understand the radiative transfer between two identical atomic systems. ... The two atoms act like two small dipole resonators, and energy is radiatively transferred ... Once the coupled mixed state starts to develop, it becomes self-reinforcing. ... This self-reinforcing behavior gives the transition its initial exponential character. Once the transition is fully under way, the two states are nearly equally represented in the superposition, and the coupled system closely resembles the coupled resonators ... Once the transition has run its course, each atom settles into its final eigenstate. ...
... there are quantum jumps, but they are not discontinuities. They may look discontinuous because of the nonlinear, self-reinforcing nature of a quantum transition; but at the fundamental level, everything can be followed in a smooth and continuous way .... to arrive at this picture, we had to give up the one-way direction of time, and allow coupling to everything on the light cone ... the Green's function for collective systems is totally free of singularities, and cannot, by its very nature, generate infinities ... There is no action of an elementary charge [ which is fundamentally an amplitude to transmit or absorb energy by radiative transfer ] upon itself ...".
In gr-qc/0303089, Walter J. Fitelson and Raymond Chiao say:
"... Measurements of the tunneling time are briefly reviewed. ... using ... a photon-pair emission light source ... The arrival time of the tunneled photon was measured with respect to that of its twin, which had traversed a distance equal to the tunnel barrier thickness, but in the vacuum, by means of the difference in the two "click" times of two Geiger counters. ... when a photon succeeded in tunneling (which is rare), it arrived earlier than its twin which had traversed the vacuum ... as if the tunneling photons had traversed the tunnel barrier superluminally. The effective group velocity of the tunneling single-photon wavepacket was measured to be 1.7 +/- 0.2 times the vacuum speed of light. ...
... Next, time and matter in general relativity and quantum mechanics is examined. In particular, the question arises: How does gravitational radiation interact with a coherent quantum many-body system (a "quantum fluid")? ...
... the ground state of a superconductor, which possesses spontaneous symmetry breaking, and therefore off-diagonal long-range order, is very similar to that of the physical vacuum, which is believed also to possess spontanous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism. In this sense, therefore, the vacuum is "superconducting." The question thus arises: How does such a broken-symmetry ground, or "vacuum," state interact with a dynamically changing spacetime, such as that associated with a GR wave? More generally: How do we embed quantum fields in dynamically curved spacetimes? ... Due to its gyroscopic nature, the spin vector of an electron undergoes parallel transport during the passage of a GR wave. The spin of the electron is constrained to lie inside the space-like submanifold of curved spacetime. ... the spin of the electron must be purely a space-like vector with no time-like component. This imposes an important constraint on the motion of the electron's spin, such that whenever the space-like submanifold of spacetime is disturbed by the passage of a gravitational wave, the spin must remain at all times perpendicular to the local time axis. If the spin vector is constrained to follow a conical trajectory during the passage of the gravitational wave, the electron picks up a Berry phase proportional to the solid angle subtended by this conical trajectory after one period of the GR wave. In a manner similar to the persistent currents induced by the Berry phase in systems with off-diagonal long-range order. ... such a Berry phase induces an electrical current in the quantum Hall fluid, which is in a macroscopically coherent ground state. ... This current generates an EM wave. Thus a GR wave can be converted into an EM wave. By reciprocity, the time-reversed process of the conversion from an EM wave to a GR wave must also be possible. ... The question immediately arises: EM radiation is fundamentally a spin 1(photon) field, but GR radiation is fundamentally a spin 2 (graviton) field. How is it possible to convert one kind of radiation into the other, and not violate the conservation of angular momentum? The answer: The EM wave converts to the GR wave through a medium. Here specifically, the medium of conversion consists of a strong DC magnetic field applied to a system of electrons. This system possesses an axis of symmetry pointing along the magnetic field direction, and therefore transforms like a spin 1 object. When coupled to a spin 1 (circularly polarized) EM radiation field, the total system can in principle produce a spin 2 (circularly polarized) GR radiation field, by the addition of angular momentum. ... In the case of superconductors, Cooper pairs of electrons possess a macroscopic phase coherence, which can lead to an Aharonov-Bohm-type interference absent in the ionic lattice. Similarly, in the quantum Hall fluid, the electrons will also possess macroscopic phase coherence, ... which can lead to Berry-phase-type interference absent in the lattice. Furthermore, there exist ferromagnetic superfluids with intrinsic spin, ... in which an ionic lattice is completely absent,such in superfluid helium 3. In such ferromagnetic quantum fluids, there exists no ionic lattice ... Thus there may be more than one kind of quantum fluid which can serve as a transducer between EM and GR waves. ... However, it remains an open question as to how strong this interconversion process is between EM and GR radiation. ...
... There exist other situations in which a minimal-coupling rule similar to the one above, arises for scalar quantum fields in curved spacetime. ... Quantum mechanically, there may exist due to the macroscopic quantum phase coherence of the superconductor, collective, many-body enhancements of the above classical conversion efficiency. Most importantly, ...[see Speliotopoulos and Chiao, gr-qc/0302045 ]... there must exist enhancements due to the fact that the intensive coupling constant sqrt(G) of the Feynman graviton-matter vertex should be replaced by the extensive coupling constant sqrt(G) L, in order to account correctly for the tidal nature of GR waves. ...[L is]... a new characteristic length scale L corresponding to the typical size of the distance ... separating the test particle from the observer ... For example, L can be the typical size of the detection apparatus ... or of the transverse Gaussian wave packet size of the gravitational radiation ...
... How then do we account for the lack of any observable quantum transducer conversion in our experiment? There are several possible reasons, the most important ones probably having to do with the material properties of the YBCO medium. One such possible reason is the earlier observations of unexplained residual microwave and far-infrared losses (of the order of 10^(-5) ohms per square at 10 GHz) in YBCO and other high Tc superconductors,which are independent of temperature and have a frequency-squared dependence, ... which may be due to the fact that YBCO is a D-wave superconductor. ... In D-wave superconductors, there exists a four-fold symmetry of nodal lines along which the BCS gap vanishes, ... where the microwave attenuation may become large. Thus D-wave superconductors are quite unlike the classic, low-temperature S-wave superconductors with respect to their microwave losses. Since one of conditions for a good coupling of a quantum antenna and transducer to the GR wave sector is extremely low dissipative losses, the choice of YBCO as the material medium for the Hertz-type experiment may not have been a good one. ..".

In an article entitled On Emerging Coherence, Science 298 (20 Dec 2002) 2336-2337), Arthur T. Winfree says :
"... oscillating systems tend to "mutually entrain" ... The first tractable mathematical model of emerging coherence was developed in 1966 ... In this severely simplified model, the unit oscillator progresses along a fixed cycle of successive states that eventually lead back to a prior state. ... In Josephson junctions driven by a constant current, the phase shift of a quantum wave function changes progressively, eventually completing a cycle. ... the oscillators can be coupled together by weak interactions ... it was found that such oscillators not only can attract one another in phase but can also mutually repel ... They only mutually entrain when the intensity of mutual coupling is sufficient compared with the range of their individual native frequencies. Below a threshold, anarchy prevails; above it, there is a collective rhythm as some oscillators lock together. ... It was shown that aggregates of beating heart cells couple electrically to beat as one and that in multinucleate "slime molds" all nuclei divide at once as a result of chemical diffusion among them. ... Fireflies signal one another to flash together ... Wiesenfeld ... Colet ... Strogatz, Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 404 (1996) ... predicted the same sort of threshold effect and sigmoidal rise of collective amplitude for Josephson junctions ...".
In their paper cond-mat/0104546, Callaway, Hopcroft, Kleinberg, Newman, and Strogatz say:
"... We analyze a minimal model of a growing network. At each time step, a new vertex is added; then, with probability d, two vertices are chosen uniformly at random and joined by an undirected edge. This process is repeated for t time steps. In the limit of large t, the resulting graph displays surprisingly rich characteristics.
In particular, a giant component emerges in an infinite&endash;order phase transition at d = 1/8. At the transition, the average component size jumps discontinuously but remains finite.
In contrast, a static random graph with the same degree distribution exhibits a second&endash;order phase transition at d = 1/4, and the average component size diverges there.
These dramatic differences between grown and static random graphs stem from a positive correlation between the degrees of connected vertices in the grown graph&emdash;older vertices tend to have higher degree, and to link with other high&endash;degree vertices, merely by virtue of their age. We conclude that grown graphs, however randomly they are constructed, are fundamentally different from their static random graph counterparts ...".
Suppose that Alice has a superposition configuration of 10^17 tubulin-caged-electrons in her head.
Gravity is a very weak force, but try to use it to get a link between Alice and Bob.
Consider Alice's configuration to be a multipole gravitational antenna.
Although Gravity is very weak, a 10^17-pole can a very selective multipole antenna.
As Jack Sarfatti points out, "... Does the selectivity scale as the coherence factor N^2 in N = 10^x. That is N little Feynman amplitudes adding up coherently? That would be for a phased-array picture in ordinary space. Like N atoms emitting photons in super-radiance. If we have N q-bits, then we have [ 2^N = 2^10^17 ] possible strings all adding together coherently in configuration space. ...".
See The Electrical Engineering Handbook (Dorf ed., CRC Press1993), Section IV Electromagnetics, 36 Antennas, 36.1 Wire, Arrays of Identical Elements, page 866).
Now suppose that Bob tries (and succeeds - here I won't say how) duplicating in his brain the Alice configuration of 10^17 tubulin-caged electrons.
Note that (10^17)^2 = 10^34 and that Gravitational G is of the order of 10^(-39) in terms of the proton mass and 10^(-45) in terms of the electron mass. Could Resonance enhance the connection between Alice and Bob by a factor of the order of roughly 10^11, so that
"... The experiment conducted by neurophysiologist Grinberg-Zylberbaum ... The Einstein- Podolsky-Rosen Paradox in the Brain; The Transferred Potential, Physics Essays 7,(4), 1994. ... demonstrate[s] the existence of a macroscopic quantum system in the human brain through the demonstration of ... non-local correlation between brains ... In this experiment two subjects ... meditated together for twenty minutes. A total of seven pairs of subjects of both sexes, with ages from 20-44 years participated in the study. After meditation and while maintaining their "direct communication" (without speech), they were placed in semi-silent, electro-magnetically shielded chambers separated by 45 feet. ... Both subjects were connected to EEG instruments and 100 random flashes of light were presented to subject A, while both remained reclined with semi-closed eyes. Subject B was not told when the light was flashed for subject A, and control correlation checks were also made at random times with no light flashes. The results indicated that, "after a meditative interaction between two people who were instructed to maintain direct communication (i.e. to feel each other's presence even at a distance), in about one out of four cases when one of the subjects was stimulated in such a way that his/her brain responded clearly (with a distinct evoked potential), the brain of the nonstimulated subject also reacted and showed a transferred potential of a similar morphology....
... The striking similarity of the transferred and evoked potentials and the total absence of transferred potentials in the control experiments leave no room for doubt about the existence of an unusual phenomenon, namely, propagation of influence without local signals. ... It is also extremely significant that the occurrence of transferred potential is always associated with the participants' feeling that their interaction is successfully completed (in contrast to the lack of transferred potential, when there is no such feeling). The interaction that correlates the subjects under study is entirely an interaction via non-local consciousness. ... none of the subjects B ever reported realizing any type of conscious experience related to theappearance of the transferred potential ...".
According to a 1996 DynaPsych article by Ervin Laszlo:
"... A particularly poignant example was furnished by a young couple, deeply in love. Their EEG patterns remained closely synchronized throughout the experiment, testifying to their report of feeling a deep oneness. ... In a limited way, Grinberg-Zylberbaum could also replicate his results. When a subject exhibited the transferred potentials in one experiment, he or she usually exhibited them in subsequent experiments as well. ...".
What has Grinberg-Zylberbaum done since 1994? That is unknown. According to an article by Sam Quinones, in the July/August 1997 New Age Journal, as shown on a Sustained Action web page:
"... In 1977 Grinberg returned to Mexico City ... A deeply spiritual man, Grinberg had moved from houses where he felt bad energy, believed he once had flown, and kept a meditation room lined with books and pictures of gurus. A semi-observant Jew, he sought out great thinkers on the Kabbalah. ... at UNAM ... he ... met the person who, he wrote later, would influence him more than any other: Barbara Guerrero, a former cabaret singer and lottery ticket seller who had fought with Pancho Villa as a young girl. Doña Pachita, as Guerrero was known, was a curandera. ... Pachita could go into a trance state during which the spirit of Cuauhtémoc, the nephew of the great Aztec ruler Moctezuma, occupied her consciousness. ... Grinberg ... believed that experience and perception were created as a result of this interaction, and that the curative powers of shamans and *curanderas* like Pachita came from their ability to gain access to the informational matrix and change it, thereby affecting reality. ...
... Grinberg designed an experiment . . . using two people instead of one. Both subjects, with electrodes attached to their skulls, were put in a dark room and told to try to achieve a sort of meditative union. After twenty minutes, one was sent to a separate room. The remaining person was stimulated with a series of light flashes or sounds while his or her brain waves were measured. The brain waves of the isolated person were also measured. In 1987 Grinberg recorded for the first time a simultaneous reaction to the stimuli on the part of the isolated, non-stimulated person, a phenomenon he called 'transferred potential.' Over the years, with increasingly sophisticated equipment, he documented transferred potential 25 percent of the time, he wrote. It was a remarkable finding, totally contrary to the tenets of mainstream science. Grinberg believed it supported his theory of a neuronal field connecting all human minds. ...
... In 1991, Grinberg, his wife, and Tony Karam visited Castaneda at the latter's invitation in Los Angeles. There, Karam says, Castaneda proposed that Grinberg leave his UNAM lab to live in his community. Grinberg declined. Their relationship disintegrated during a trip Castaneda took to Mexico City two years later. Grinberg's friends and family remember him frequently calling Castaneda an egomaniac, more interested in power than truth. They also recall that Tere [Grinberg's wife] remained enamored with Castaneda and his group. ...
... For Jacobo Grinberg Zylberbaum, 1994 was a pretty good year. ... At his laboratory in the psychology department of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico City, he recorded the brain waves of a shaman, Don Rodolfo from Veracruz, in a trance state. ... Grinberg's book on his seminal influence, Barbara Guerrero, the blind witch doctor known as Dona Pachita, was finally about to be published in English. ... Then in December, Grinberg missed some appointments with students. Two days before his long-awaited trip to Nepal on December 14, he failed to attend his own birthday party. ... When Grinberg did not return from Nepal as planned, still no one thought much of it. ... But the weeks became months. Calls were made ... Nothing. No record of Grinberg or his wife ... Tere ... even leaving Mexico. ... In the two-and-a-half years since he disappeared, no trace of him, dead or alive, has been found. All that remain are his books, his theories ... The theory for which Grinberg came to be known reflected his personality. Relying on physics and his experiences with witch doctors, or *curanderos*--a bit of Einstein, a bit of Dona Pachita--its essential message was warm and hopeful: All humankind is interconnected. ...".
According to the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research web site:"... The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program was established at Princeton University in 1979 by Robert G. Jahn, then Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to pursue rigorous scientific study of the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes common to contemporary engineering practice. ...
... Over the laboratory's 20-year history, thousands of such experiments, involving many millions of trials, have been performed by several hundred operators. The observed effects are usually quite small, of the order of a few parts in ten thousand on average, but they are statistically repeatable and compound to highly significant deviations from chance expectations. These results are summarized in "Correlations of Random Binary Sequences with Pre-Stated Operator Intention: A Review of a 12-Year Program." ...
...[ The following image is from "Correlations of Random Binary Sequences with Pre-Stated Operator Intention: A Review of a 12-Year Program." ]...
... A number of secondary correlations reveal structural features within these human/machine databases. In many instances, the effects appear to be operator-specific in their details and the results of given operators on widely different machines frequently tend to be similar in character and scale. Pairs of operators with shared intentions are found to induce further anomalies in the experimental outputs, especially when the two individuals share an emotional bond. The data also display significant disparities between female and male operator performances, and consistent series position effects are observed in individual and collective results. These anomalies can be demonstrated with the operators located up to thousands of miles from the laboratory, exerting their efforts hours before or after the actual operation of the devices. ... These random devices also respond to group activities of larger numbers of people, even when they are unaware of the machine's presence. "FieldREG" data produced in environments fostering relatively intense or profound subjective resonance show larger deviations than those generated in more pragmatic assemblies. ... Venues that appear to be particularly conducive to such field anomalies include small intimate groups, group rituals, sacred sites, musical and theatrical performances, and charismatic events. In contrast, data generated during academic conferences or business meetings show no deviations from chance. ...
.. One ... Theoretical Model ... has been proposed and developed under the major premise that the basic processes by which consciousness exchanges information with its environment, orders that information, and interprets it, also enable it to bias probabilistic systems and thereby to avail itself of some control over its reality. This model regards the concepts that underlie all physical models of reality, particularly those of observational quantum mechanics such as the principles of uncertainty, complementarity, and wave mechanical resonance, as fundamental characteristics of consciousness rather than as intrinsic features of an objective physical environment. In this view, the "anomalous" phenomena observed in the PEAR experiments become quite normal expectations of bonded human/machine and human/human systems, and the door is opened for all manner of creative consciousness/environment interactions. See "On the Quantum Mechanics of Consciousness, With Application to Anomalous Phenomena". ...".
When I was a small child, there was a clover patch in my back yard. I very much wanted to find a 4-leaf clover, and I did not have much else to do, so I spent a lot of time looking for 4-leaf clovers. For a few days I found only standard 3-leaf clovers, but after a few days I found a 4-leaf clover. For the next several days, I found more and more 4-leaf clovers, and I began to wonder about maybe finding clovers with more leaves. Some days later, I found some 5-leaf clovers.
The 4-leaf and 5-leaf clovers in the above picture were found by a friend of mine in Georgia during the year 2002. While 4-leaf clovers have an extra leaf beyond the usual 3, it seems to me that 5-leaf clovers are formed by doubling one of the 4 leaves of a 4-leaf clover, so that it would be natural to find clovers of 6, 7, or 8 leaves by doubling 2, 3, or all 4 of the leaves of a 4-leaf clover.
That is exactly what I had found after a bit more childhood searching: clovers with 6, then 7, and, later, 8 leaves. 8 was the maximum number of leaves I found on a clover. To me, clover symbolized my D4-D5-E6-E7-E8 VoDou Physics model, as follows:
From another point of view:
That is exactly what I had found after a bit more childhood searching: clovers with 6, then 7, and, later, 8 leaves. 8 was the maximum number of leaves I found on a clover.
After I got a little older and spent less time and energy in the clover patch, I have not found such things. If you are connected with something like a clover patch, you can select (maybe by Resonant Connections and the Quantum Zeno Effect and the Quantum Anti-Zeno Effect) which futures involve you and it, and so influence Fate.
To me, clover Resonant Connections represent the Resonance Phenomena of Quantum Consciousness and IFA.
A theme of the movie Akira is connection between Consciousness and DNA.
Michael Gibbs describes a game about magic in which some of his ideas seem to me to correspond to Quantum Consciousness Resonance. Here are some quotes from his description ( I have changed his "magerium" from a substantive element to a structural pattern. ):
"... THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC
Magons tend to resonate between objects similar in structure in an effect similar to a laser cavity. The flow between two similar objects can be much greater than the ambient magonic radiation. This effect is enhanced if one structure contains amounts of magerium. The radiation increases exponentially with time up to a maximum value which depends on the fraction of reflected energy and the distance between the objects. The rate at which the energy builds up is smaller at greater distances. Any dissimilarity between the objects will allow the majons to dissipate, exerting a force on both objects to make them more similar. Often this energy ends up in the forms of heat.
With very careful control, a mage can form an image in his mind which will resonate with an intended object. By slowly changing this image, the energy in the magic beam can create a corresponding change in the object.
Magic ability varies with innate ability (quantity of magerium ...) and the ability of the mage to accurately form and modify mental images, which can be improved by training and practice.
THE PRACTICE OF MAGIC
All students of magic are taught the three F's: focus, fidelity, and fine control.
SCIENTIFIC NOTE: A magic circle looks just like a Fresnel lens. The pattern of excitation in the visual cortex creates a lens of magerium ... which focuses magic energy. Eventually, the student learns to recreate this pattern from memory without having to stare at a magic circle. ... Spells can be impressed into magic crystals by a talented mage. The quality of the crystals has a great effect on the amount of power a crystal can channel. A flawed crytal will dissipate energy as heat rapidly, often destroying the crystal. The most powerful crystals are diamonds containing magerium in their lattices. ...".
In his paper A new theory of the relationship of mind and matter, Philosophical Psychology, vol.. 3, no. 2, 1990, pp. 271-286, reprinted on The Neo-Noetics Page web site, Bohm said "... Let us now return to a consideration of the quantum theory. What is its relationship to the interweaving of the physical and the mental ...? First, let us recall that because the quantum potential may be regarded as information whose activity is to guide the "dance" of the electrons, there is a basic similarity between the quantum behaviour of a system of electrons and the behaviour of mind. But if we wish to relate mental processes to the quantum theory, this similarity will have to be extended. ... one could begin by supposing, for example, that as the quantum potential constitutes active information that can give form to the movements of the particles, so there is a superquantum potential that can give form to the unfoldment and development of this first order quantum potential. ...
[ My comment: Bohm's "superquantum potential" is Jack Sarfatti's "back-reaction", which can be realized physically from the Many-Worlds point of view by States of Consciousness using the Quantum Zeno effect and the Quantum Anti-Zeno effect to prune the branches of Worlds in the MacroSpace of the Many-Worlds. ]
... This latter would no longer satisfy the laws of the current quantum theory, which latter would then be an approximation ...
[ My comment: As Jack Sarfatti has pointed out, based on papers (Physics Letters A 156, No.1-2, June 1991 and Physics Letters A 158, No.1-2, August 1991) by Antony Valentini, conscious back-reaction could violate the assumption of equilibrium that current ordinary quantum theory uses to obtain the Born approximation that the square of the amplitude of the wave function gives the probability of experimental results. As Antony Valentini says in quant-ph/0203049, NonEquilibrium Quantum Processes can "... be used to send instantaneous signals, to violate the uncertainty principle, to distinguish non-orthogonal quantum states without disturbing them, to eavesdrop on quantum key distribution, and to read all the results of a parallel quantum computation. ... pilot-wave theory indeed allows ... one to consider arbitrary 'nonequilibrium' initial distributions ...". ]
... that which we experience as mind ... will ... move the body by reaching the level of the quantum potential and of the 'dance' of the particles. ... It is thus implied that in some sense a rudimentary mind-like quality is present even at the level of particle physics, and that as we go to subtler levels, this mind-like quality becomes stronger and more developed. ... there is no real division between mind and matter ... Extending this view, we see that each human being similarly participates in an inseparable way in society and in the planet as a whole. What may be suggested further is that such participation goes on to a greater collective mind, and perhaps ultimately to some yet more comprehensive mind in principle capable of going indefinitely beyond even the human species as a whole. ...".

"... The zero point fluctuation Lamb shift [about 1060 MHz or about 10^9 Hz] in hydrogen ...".
along with the fact that
"... The cosmological redshift due to the expansion of the 3D space of the universe ("Hubble flow") is
[where] df is the shift in frequency f, H is Hubble's constant, H/c = 10^(-28) cm^(-1), and H = (1/3) 10^(-17) sec^(-1). ... [and] r is the spatial separation between two identically constructed atomic clocks ...

... You can ... imagine zero point vacuum fluctuations of virtual photons of frequency [ f = c/R. ...where R = Planck length = 10^(-33) cm] ... [so that ] ...
... if we use Lamb shift atomic clocks we can detect the cosmological redshift of the zero point vacuum fluctuations as the beat in the Lamb shift radiation from spatially separated atoms. Even though we cannot directly detect virtual zero point photons we can detect their differential effects on relative phases. ...
You can think of df as the beat frequency if you allow the light from the two radiators to superpose. ...".
Using the values of H and R, we have
Now, look at the beats between two electrons in adjoining tubulin cages, about 4 nanometers apart, so that r = 4 x 10^(-7) cm:
Jack Sarfatti asks:
If N of the brain's 10^18 tubulin electrons are involved in a single conscious thought, they are resonantly connected and correlated as part of a single superposition collective system, in which scaling is not linear, but as the square of N. For instance, Carver Mead in his book Collective Electrodynamics (MIT 2000) says, at page 21:
"... Instead of scaling linearly with the number of charges that takes part in the motion, the momentum of a collective system scales as the SQUARE of the number of charges! ... In an arrangement where charges are constrained to move in concert, each charge produces phase accumulation, not only for itself but for all the other charges as well. So the inertia of EACH CHARGE increases linearly with the number of charges moving in concert. The inertia of the ensemble of coupled charges must therefore increase as the square of the number of charges. ...".
Note that in the above-quoted passage Carver Mead is explicitly dealing with momentum and that energy is the time-component of 4-momentum.
Further, on page 24, Carver Mead says (about N turns of coil closely coupled, which is like an N-turn coil, or I would say like N tubulin dipoles):
"... we conclude that an N-turn closely coupled coil has an inductance L = N^2 L0. Once again, we see the collective interaction scaling as the square of the number of interacting charges. ... collective quantum systems have a correspondence limit markedly different from that of classical mechanical systems. ... Collective quantum systems do not have a classical correspondence limit ...".
For example, consider the maximal case of N tubulin electrons with N = 10^18, each electron having thermal energy E = kT, where k = 10^(-23) Joules Kelvin^(-1) and T = 300 Kelvin, so that Total Thermal Energy = N^2 kT = 10^(36-23) x 300 = 3 x 10^15 Joules. ( Due to the nonlinear square-scaling, it would take less if the collapse took place gradually, a few electrons at a time. ) Note that decoherence by external thermal energy, with square-scaling, is different from the self-decoherence of the superposition state, based on the energy-time uncertainty principle Energy x Time = h, by which a conscious thought quantum state decoheres to form a completed thought.
If N tubulin electrons are in a collective superpostion state of conscious thought, then the total energy needed to decohere them by external thermal energy (decoherence due to the heat of the brain) is much greater than the classical kinetic heat energy in the brain, so that
Carver Mead summarizes his views on Electromagnetic Energy on pages 71-72 of his book Collective Electrodynamics (MIT 2000):
"... The behavior of colective electron systems is dominated by the interaction of each element with all of the others. The interaction energy scales with the square of the number of electrons. The degrees of freedom of the system can be expressed in terms of the phase of the wave function, of the four-potential, or of the circuit variables (voltage and current). These three sets of variables are projections of the same reality onto three different screens - each represents the same underlying degrees of freedom. To illustrate the power of maintaining these parallel views, we have treated a number of configurations using more than one approach. We have found that the concepts of kinetic and potential energy, and the conservation of total energy are useful in unifying these three representations. The energy-density scalar represents all the energy in the system; no additional "field energy" is required. ...
... Thus, there are two ways that collective coherent quantum systems exhibit a voltage proportional to current:
- The first is in an open, propagating system;
- the second is in a closed, quantized system.
In both cases, the proportionality results from the exact equality of kinetic and potential energies. In neither case is energy dissipated, unlike the usual conception of resistance as having a dissipative effect. The ratio of these two fundamental resistances is a dimensionless number. For historical reasons, the ratio that was first recognized, called the fine-structure constant alpha, differs from the resistance ratio by a factor of 2:
R_FS / R_vK = mu_0 c q_e^2 / h = 2 alpha. ...
[ compare the interpretation of alpha as the probability for an electron to emit or absorb a photon, with the electron charge q_e being the amplitude for an electron to emit or absorb a photon ]
.... R_vK = 25812.8065 ohms ... is called the quantized Hall resistance, or the von Klitzing resistance ... and is now the international standard of resistance. ... In extremely pure semiconductors at cryogenic temperatures, the mutual quantization of charge and flux is an extremely strong effect, allowing the ratio ... of voltage transverse to current ...
V / I = n PHI_0 / m q_0 = ( n / m ) ( h / q_0^2 )
... to be determined to a few parts in 10^9. When q_0 is equal to the electron charge q_e, the resistance ... with n = m is R_vK ...".
to use what we used to call in college
SuperNatural Units in which c = G = h = 1 = 2 = pi
(In other words I sometimes ignore factors like 2 and pi, etc., for simplicity.)
