A. New ideas about how matter and mind connect: — viewpoints of the physicalist, psychologist, philosopher ….
B. Interpretations of quantum physics, and the wave equation. Heisenberg’s Tendencies, The Many Worlds of Everett. Reflections according to Cramer. Pilot Waves in the mind of Bohm. “Flirts” in attention: (Arny’s view).
C. The meanings of numbers and complex numbers?
D. The significance of Feynman’s path/worldline vector approach in physics (see Edwin F. Taylor, MIT physics department www.eftaylor.com for more on this). What effect and meaning will this approach have for psychology?
E. What is the meaning of the principle of least action in terms of psychological experience?
F. What are vectors? A vector is like an arrow. In some myths, Trickster’s arrow is a light beam, or lightening. In the mind of the mathematician, vectors …like velocity… are anything that has a direction and a speed. In psychology, we use the idea of vectors as dreamlike (or meaningful) directions you are headed in, even though you may not always be conscious of being on a “vector”. Since our 02 spring seminars connecting Taoism, process work and quantum physics, we have been using vectors in all our work because they help with seemingly impossible problems (and also connect dreams and dream fragments to parallel worlds in physics).
G. What is the significance of Feynman’s “quantum clock” or Taylor’s “propagator” (which turns and twists particles giving them their direction in mathematical spaces)?
H. Why is there so much emotional turmoil around developing new ideas among scientists whose goal is to be objective? What is the connection between these emotions, what happens inside us, and our world theories about the world “out there?”
I. We are pondering what happens to our experience of time when sleeping.
