Beyond The Beginning

Beyond The Beginning

This is my last entry on My new website is now operational and four articles are patiently waiting their first readers. I wrote four articles because this is the number of articles I had written when I launched Coincidentally, this was exactly 4 years ago, on the 12th of January 2012. Also, a leap year.

Although this website never really took off, there are some articles which are still referred to by search engines, so I will not take it down anytime soon. And despite the few number of works I’ve published here (34 to be precise, which is less than 1 per month), I’ve grown accustomed to this creative outlet. There’s emotion involved. During the time AxonnSays was online I went through important changes in my life.


Phase 1 (Redesign) Complete!

A couple of months back I was writing about the big things^ about to happen. Well, I’m now many steps further towards the big event which is going to be moving to a new website and giving (much) more attention to my writing. It’s been a long time coming, but the design of the new website is now complete! What does it look like? Why, you’re looking right at it! :).

Why Vote?

Addressing every person eligible for voting. I’ve been challenged to give 3 reasons why I’d vote, despite the fact that this procedure has been reduced to a depressing choice between incompetent and/or dirty politicians, even in countries with strong democratic traditions. Many people choose to not take part in this futile battle against a corrupted system anymore, but you know what?

1. I Vote Because They Haven’t Broken My Spirit!
2. I Vote Because I Am Responsible For My And My Loved Ones’ Future!
3. I Vote Because I Am Able To Reason And Exercise Free Will!

Now come and read the rest of the article.

The Trilogy Of Quantum Consciousness

What has initially started as an analogy to explain how the multiverse, quantum mechanics, free will and consciousness can all fit in the same phrase, has grown into three articles, each of them approaching the subject from a different perspective and with different goals.

Although the explanations and suppositions which I have formulated can be classified as pseudo-science, I prefer to consider this is a work of hard science fiction^, that is, “science fiction characterized by an emphasis on scientific accuracy or technical detail”.

However, do not be disappointed by the use of the word “fiction”. These articles are based on hard science (I have provided plenty of references), theories and experiments (such as the famous double slit experiment). The only thing “fiction” here is the use of various analogies and stating a few wild hypotheses.

The Quantum Super-System Applied To Everyday Life

This is the third article in a series discussing quantum mechanics and consciousness. It relies heavily on the previous two articles where I theorize that our consciousness switches from one universe to the next by means of choices made by our free will. These universes form a probability cloud called the multiverse^ which is, itself, part of a succession of such systems of varying complexity (either larger or smaller in scale than our universe). This stack of probability clouds is called the quantum super-system.

Using this hypothesis, we can find exotic explanations for certain aspects of life, while in the same time questions will arise regarding what (if anything) lies beyond our current existence.

The Quantum Super-System

Humanity is already capable of simulating fractions^ of the universe. We started with cave sculptures and, step by step, we have perfected the art of building entire worlds. We now delve into virtual reality and there are many more amazing technological breakthroughs that await. Eventually, we will probably end up being able to transport our entire sensory apparatus into universes of our own making. Are we the first iteration of this matter organization process?

The simulated reality hypothesis^ has been around for quite some time, but can we find some proof for its existence in the strange quantum behaviors that we’ve been observing? What if the hypothesis can be improved in a way that would resolve one of its biggest caveats: if this is a simulated reality, aren’t the simulators a simulation themselves?

Just like the Sun does not revolve around the Earth, it is quite probable that this universe itself is part of a larger system. One such system, the multiverse^, is a well-known theoretical concept in modern physics. Mysteries are often the source of all sorts of suppositions, from magic and gods to scientific theories; the paradox presented by the double slit experiment is no exception. I see it as a confirmation for the hypothesis of the multiverse, which reconciles a deterministic universe (devoid of free will) with the possibility that free will actually exists (in a probabilistic multiverse).

Free Will As A Function Of The Multiverse Can Explain Quantum Paradoxes

According to some, the functioning of the Universe in which we exist can be explained through a limited number of laws. So far, scientists have discovered quite a lot of these laws, which is why mankind now has a firmer grip on its future. Unfortunately, when talking about quantum mechanics, a lot of those rules are not applicable and a new kind of physics is required, one that comes with a plethora of new paradigms. Among the things which have eluded physicists for decades is reconciling general relativity with quantum mechanics.

I will argue that there is a connection between free will and behaviors observed in quantum mechanics, and I will offer my explanation of why the double slit experiment yields such results. I will start with a theory which is well known in physics: the multiverse^ (also known as parallel universes). This is closely related with one of the possible interpretations of the experiment: the “many worlds interpretation^”, a theory which can reconcile an uncertain, probabilistic universe with a predictable, deterministic one.

NATO, Watch It! We Don’t Want A War!

One of the most important summits in the history of the North Atlantic Treaty is kicking off on Thursday and the outcome of this meeting will shape the political landscape for years to come. And I repeat, for the sake of emphasis: NATO, watch it! We don’t want a war!

Disclaimer: this opinion article has been directed at NATO because of the upcoming summit and because the numerous hints that have led me to believe that, behind closed doors, a war is being prepared. However, I am not Putin’s fan (or anybody’s for that matter!) and of course that I am mindful that it is not only NATO which may start a war, but Russia as well. So Russia, you watch it too!

History has a sad tendency to repeat itself, and terrifyingly enough, all the signs of an impending World War are here: economic downturn (which doesn’t seem to go away no matter how hard everybody tries), lots of military confrontations all over the planet, overpopulation and, unlike other times: a sick media interest in covering war and blowing things out of proportion (this is especially obvious in the Western Europe and North America).
