Drop of Dhamma Delight!


The Mind Selects Reality by Collapsing the Wave-function:
The unobserved physical world exists in a state of superposition of all possible states & locations.
Orthodox contemporary quantum physics express the probability distribution of all future possible
observations for any conscious observer in an experimentally verified construct named the wave-function.
When the
conscious observer experiences the system, he collapses this wave-function containing
multiple possible outcomes into only ONE single definite reality. This event is called the "measurement". 
The intentionally choosing & determining mind thus directly creates, produces and manifests the world
that will appear among many closely related potential or probable paired mental & material states...
Mind makes everywhere present probability waves collapse into locally manifesting matter states!
So far does contemporary orthodox quantum-mechanics agree...Mind creates matter by intending!

Is the Brain a Computer, Transmitter, Container, or Antenna?

The Blessed Buddha once revealed:
Mind always comes first,
Mind is of all states the primer,
By mind are all phenomena initiated,
By thought of mind are all things formed!
Dhammapada 1

American physics grand old man John Archibald Wheeler said: 
"No phenomenon is a phenomenon, until it is an Observed Phenomenon...!"
"We are participators in bringing into being, not only the near, but also the 
far away both in time and space! Symbolic representation of the Universe is 
a self-excited system brought into being by self-reference or auto-creation
by consciously selecting observers over an immensely long period of time...
Such a recursive-reflecting creative concept is similar to the endless series 
of receding reflections one sees in a pair of mirrors facing each others...."

"The path of the electron comes into existence, only when we observe it." 
John S. Bell

"Observations not only disturb, what has to be measured, they produce it!
We compel [the electron] to assume a definite position! We - ourselves - 
produce the results of the measurements." Pascual Jordan quoted by in:
Max Jammer: The Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics, Wiley, 1974 p. 161.

The stuff of the world is mind-stuff.
(Eddington, The Nature of the Physical World)

The old dualism of mind and matter... seems likely to disappear ...
through substantial matter resolving itself into a creation and
manifestation of the mind.
(Jeans, The Mysterious Universe)

The only acceptable point of view appears to be the one that recognizes
both sides of reality, the quantitative and the qualitative, the physical
and the psychical, as compatible with each other, and can embrace them
simultaneously. (Pauli, Writings on Physics and Philosophy)

The conception of the objective reality of the elementary particles has
thus evaporated not into the cloud of some obscure new reality concept,
but into the transparent clarity of a mathematics that represents no longer
the behaviour of the particle but rather our knowledge of this behaviour.
(Heisenberg, The Representation of Nature in Contemporary Physics)
