Quantum Behaviour

Science and art contribute to our understanding and appreciation of our experience of the world, to what interests and ideas we choose to pursue, and to what we choose to do and how we choose to do things.

I see the connection between the science of probabilities and the art of possibilities, – the connections between how we imagine things are, and how things work, and how we imagine things could be, and what we imagine could work to creating the possibilities we imagine.

I see a relationship between the scientific hypothesis as an idea about how things are that we set out to demonstrate, and the creative hypothesis as an idea about how things could be that we set out to create.

I see we acquire our ideas about how things are, how things work, and what works from our nature, our culture, and our experience, – how we are, who we are, and what we learn.

I see our ability to create possibilities for ourselves increases as our ideas, our imagination, and our interests evolve.

I see our ideas about how things work, and what could work, and what could contribute to our evolution lies in our ability to observe on what we see and experience, our ability to explore our experience for probabilities and possibilities,  and our ability to imagine and create possibilities.

I see we could improve our ability to create possibilities for ourselves by learning how to create with our nature, how to create with our culture, and how to create with our experience.

I see how we create our experience and how our experience creates us. I see we can improve our ability to create possibilities by exploring our nature,  our culture, and our experience, exploring the differences in our nature, our cultures, and our experiences,  and exploring our creative and cultural evolution, Our creative journey so far.

I see we improve our ability to explore our heritage, our cultures, and our ideas about how things are, and how things work, and our ability to imagine and create possibilities for our creative and cultural evolution as a community by contributing to and creating connections for and with one another.

We learn, create, and evolve by creating connections. Accelerating our ability to create connections is how we accelerate our creative and cultural evolution as a community and our ability to create possibilities for our future and for the future of our world.

I was inspired as an engineering physicist by a clever writer in the New York Times to see human behavior through the eyes of quantum physics.

A quantum theory of human behaviour

As in the Schrödinger’s cat thought experiment, a point of view on whether an idea is thought to be right or wrong, or good or bad, or true or false based on the random experience of the subject in the box will remain unknown until the idea is presented.

As in the Feynman Diagram on quantum behaviour, in an encounter between us and them, created by right and wrong, good and bad, or true and false, the resulting collision neutralizes both, leaving behind no interest, understanding, trust, movement, or creative energy

As in the complementarity principle in quantum theory, we could have a moderate and a strong point of view. It is not that we have one or the other. Nor that we have one and then the other. It is that we have both at the same time.

As in the probability principle, our points of view can be expressed only in terms of likelihood, not certainty. Although some points of view are more or less likely there is no point of view that can be thought of as not possible.

As in the uncertainty principle, we can never know simultaneously both what a point of view is and what that point of view will be at some future time.

As in the entanglement principle, the act of observing cannot be separated from the outcome of the observation. When we inquire about a point of view we unavoidably affect the point of view. We may have a point of view about an issue until we are asked for it, which could then be expressed in a way to please the asker.

As in the duality principle, the existence of one point of view allows for the possibility of the spontaneous creation of another point of view.

As in the non-causality principle, the nature, quality, and experience of our relationships is created from how we see and define our relationships with others and how others see and define their relationships with us.

The common goal of a thought experiment is to explore the potential consequences of the principle in question. Imagining and creating possibilities comes from our ability to understand and create with our human nature.
