A quantum-physics experiment to see if “Human Intention” can reverse the spin of a single electron
In considering the wave function of an electron, I realized in 2000 that this entity resembles human consciousness in several ways, so I hypothesized that the wave function is conscious (and a human consciousness is a wave function). Now if an electron’s wave function is indeed conscious, then it might respond to a command from a human consciousness, perhaps as one human can communicate with another human through mental telepathy. With the help of atomic experimentalists, I have conceived of an experiment to look for such an effect, in particular, can human intention reverse the spin of a single electron. I describe the experiment and some applications.
The original paper in this research is entitled “Consciousness and quantum-mechanical wave functions” and can be downloaded from my website http://faculty.physics.tamu.edu/bryan
Many other papers on the subject also appear there.
