Universal Mind and the (non-)Collapse of the Wave Function: Consciousness Is All That There Is

Talk by President Hagelin

Dr. Hagelin will repeat the keynote address he was invited to give at the “Copenhagen II: Quantum Mechanics 100 Years Later” conference in San Diego last October, which was met with a standing ovation.

Dr. Hagelin re-examines, in the light of Maharishi’s Vedic Science, the groundbreaking work on quantum measurement by the late, great theoretical physicist Murray Gell-Mann. He argues that the “Many Worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics can be more naturally, more economically, and more satisfactorily interpreted as multiple branching story lines unfolding within the never-changing, indivisible wholeness of the Universal Wave Function (the Unified Field, Pure Consciousness).

This eliminates entirely the need to consider “wave function collapse” as a real phenomenon, and thereby circumvents the philosophically and technically thorny issues surrounding it.
