Is the Mind/Soul a Platonic Akashic Tachyonic Holographic Quantum Field?
Keywords:Mind, Consciousness, Quantum Field Theory, Tachyons, Higgs Field, Platonic Idealism
AbstractI speculate that the mind/soul may be an information field as perhaps envisioned by Plato-what I call the Platonic/Akashic/Tachyonic/Holographic quantum field (PATH-QF)-possibly what the ancients called the Akashic record, interacting with "real" matter fields. Though no material objects manifesting from appropriate quantum fields (those that generate real finite rest masses > 0) can travel at or faster than the speed of light, I speculate that the putative mind/soul exists as a PATH that interacts/creates with such slower-than-light-speed "real" matter through the intermediary of imaginal imaginary-mass objects-tachyons. It is the interaction between the PATH and matter fields that leads to the physical world and to the subjective experience we know as mind/life force.
