Holism and Nonseparability in Physics
It has sometimes been suggested that quantum phenomena exhibit a characteristic holism or nonseparability, and that this distinguishes quantum from classical physics. One puzzling quantum phenomenon arises when one performs measurements of spin or polarization on certain separated quantum systems. The results of these measurements exhibit patterns of statistical correlation that resist traditional causal explanation. Some have held that it is possible to understand these patterns as instances or consequences of quantum holism or nonseparability. Just what holism and nonseparability are supposed to be has not always been made clear, though, and each of these notions has been understood in different ways. Moreover, while some have taken holism and nonseparability to come to the same thing, others have thought it important to distinguish the two. Any evaluation of the significance of quantum holism and/or nonseparability must rest on a careful analysis of these notions.

Beauty. Elegance. Charm. Color. Symmetry. Strangeness. These are the very words that physicists use to portray the most basic, scientific picture of our world. What they see is breath-taking. If you think "Quantum Physics" sounds too difficult, unfortunately, it’s even worse than that. Nobody in his right mind, my friends warn me, would dare do television like this. So here I am, doing it because Quantum Physics is real and relevant, and because every literate person should appreciate its profound beauty. This show is an impassioned word portrait of a new reality. Tilt your head, and it won’t be so hard. Stick with me; my bet is that you’ll get it and like it. Participants: Benford, Buchanan, Koonin, Lederman, Linde Gregory Benford is both a recognized physicist and world-renowned science-fiction novelist. He is professor of physics at the University of California at Irvine, where he specializes in plasma physics and astrophysics. He is also a consultant to NASA. He has written over 30 science fiction books, including If the Stars are Gods and COSM, and is considered perhaps the most scientifically accurate science fiction writer.

Buddhism and quantum physics
Experiments in quantum physics seem to demonstrate the need for an observer to be present to make potentialities become real.
Quantum physics is an outstandingly successful mathematical description of the behaviour of matter and energy at the level of fundamental particles. No discrepancy of any kind between the predictions of quantum theory and experimental observation has ever been found [PENROSE 1990a].
It should be noted that the value of a scientific theory is normally judged by its predictive rather than descriptive power. Theories which are merely descriptive rather than testably predictive have little or no scientific value.
It is important to emphasise that the mathematical equations of quantum physics do not describe actual existence - they predict the potential for existence. Working out the equations of quantum mechanics for a system composed of fundamental particles produces a range of potential locations, values and attributes of the particles which evolve and change with time. But for any system only one of these potential states can become real, and - this is the revolutionary finding of quantum physics - what forces the range of the potentials to assume one value is the act of observation. Matter and energy are not in themselves phenomena, and do not become phenomena until they are observed. The following experiments give some feel for the interaction of mind with matter at the fundamental level of existence:

Quantum Philosophy

New experiments - real and imagined - are probing ever more deeply into the surreal quantum realm
COSMIC THOUGHT EXPERIMENT calls for measuring individual photons from a quasar whose image has been split in two by a galaxy acting as a "gravitational lens." In a sense, the way the experiment is carried out now determines whether each photon -billions of years ago - acted like a particle, going one way or the other around the galaxy and ending up in one of the two detectors (a and b),or like a wave, going both ways around the galaxy and generating an interference pattern (c).
In ancient Greece, Plato tried to think an talk his way to the truth in extended dialogues with his disciples.Today physicists such as Leonard Mandel of the University of Rochester operate in a somewhat different fashion.He and his students,who are more likely to wear t-shirts and laser proof goggles than robes and sandals,spend countless hours bent over a large metal table trying to align a laser with a complex network of mirrors,lenses, beam splitters and light detectors. Plato Yet the questions they address in their equipment-jammed laboratory are no less profound than those contemplated by Plato in his grassy glade.What are the limits of human knowledge? Is the physical world shaped in some sense by our perception of it? Is there an element of randomness in the universe,or are all events predetermined?

Quantum Physics: The Nodal Theory
Hector C. Parr
The behaviour of atomic and sub-atomic particles is well described by Quantum Theory, and scientists engaged in research in this field can use the theory to make predictions of quite remarkable accuracy. But any attempt to understand the philosophy underlying the theory leads to puzzling contradictions. During the twentieth century, several physicists with a thorough understanding of the theory have tried to resolve these conceptual difficulties, but no proposed solution seems wholly satisfactory, and each contains elements which are barely credible. This book examines the writings of some of these scientist-philosophers, and makes one more attempt to get to the root of the problem. The writer believes that a failure to understand the true nature of Time lies at the heart of the difficulties, and he makes one new suggestion, which he calls the Nodal Hypothesis, in an attempt to resolve them. The book shows that several deductions from this hypothesis agree well with observation, and it outlines the direction in which future research may be able to confirm that it is indeed a step in the right direction.

Deepening the quantum mysterie s
The "central mystery" of quantum physics just got more mysterious. Experimenters from the United States and Austria have got together to provide a new demonstration of how light going through a "double slit" experiment seems to know before it sets out in its journey exactly what kind of traps have been set for it along the way. This is a variation on the Young's slit experiment, familiar from school laboratory demonstrations of the wave nature of light. When a beam of monochromatic light is shone through two narrow holes in a screen, the light spreading out from the two holes interferes, just like ripples interfering on the surface of a pond, to produce a characteristic pattern on a second screen. The mystery is that light can also be described as a stream of particles, called photons. The light source in a Young's slit experiment can be turned down to the point where it consists of individual photons going through the experiment, one after the other. If the spots of light made by individual photons arriving at the second screen (actually a photoelectric detector) are added together, they still form an interference pattern, as if each photon goes through both holes and interferes with itself on the way through the experiment. It was Richard Feynman who described this as "the central mystery" of quantum theory, and then corrected himself, saying that in fact it is "the only mystery". If you understood this, you would understand quantum physics but as Feynman also said, "nobody understands quantum mechanics" (The Character of Physical Law, BBC Publications, 1965).

The social and political consequences of this science-in-the-making, however, are promising and troubling at the same time. The project uses its privileged vantage point at the forefront of physics to question the potential future effects of such "pure research" in the areas of electronic communication and commerce, computing, and national security.
