Nick Redfern on imagination and reality

Nick Redfern has a piece at Mysterious Universe about the creation of reality by one's imagination, something I think is obviously possible. Moreover, I think thoughts may be able to create realities. (Something I'd like to deal with here.)

  • Enjoyed Nick's piece and he, as always, raises questions in the abstract.

    I recall some years back stumbling across a paper written by a neurologist who equated a single neuron as a distinct universe in itself. Hence, the amount of neurons making up the human brain was equivalent to a vastly multiple, but distinctly different universes.

    From a quantum mechanics point of view, Erwin Schrodinger's "Cat in the Box" thought exercise led to the Many Worlds interpretation.

    On a macro level, we have "n" number of people on this planet, which could perceivable be "n" number of universes, or Nick's mutli-realities.

    If we are to believe my neurologist's analogy of "n" neurons in the human brain equal "n" separate, yet distinct universes, then we mutiply that "outrageous" number coming to the mother of all "n" of realities or universes.

    Insane? Perhaps, but it raises interesting questions.

    PS: Yes, I'm aware that Hugh Everett is credited with the Many Worlds Interpretation, but Schrodinger proposed it in his earlier works, thus predating Everett.

  • More to come.

    This isn't a matter to rush into or be glib about.

    It's a topic requiring thoughtful rumination.

  • This is a concept put forth in a lot of detail by Dr. Jeff Kripal, both in "Authors of the Impossible" and "Mutants & Mystics". It's required reading for sure if you want a different way to look at all this.
