Rosenblum, Bruce & Kuttner, Fred – Quantum Enigma

  • quantum enigma. The science of physics is involved with something unphysical: the matter has to take account of the mind: the enigma of the outside is meeting the mystery of the inside: objectivity and subjectivity look at each other. So, according to this book, two questions are asked: 1) does consciousness create physics? and 2) does physics create consciousness? As long as the world will be hierarchical, the answers to those questions will be “Yes!” First, “Yes! The conscious creates physics as in quantum mechanics”. And second, “Yes! The physics creates consciousness as in relativity theory”. In short, Bruce Rosenblum & Fred Kuttner agree only with the first question and deny the second question: “Quantum mechanics challenge each of these intuitions by having (conscious) observation actually create the physical reality observed” (2006: 4)
