Wave Function Collapse in Retinal Structure Under Aided/Unaided Conditions

Karla M. Galdamez


Photon-rhodopsin interaction is investigated within the context of information transfer at a distance.  John von Neumann's idea of wave function collapse (WFC) forms the framework for the process of information transfer via a single light quanta along with human intention between pairs.  Mathematical formalism relating to the density matrix is studied to distinguish the collapse phenomena from  absorption and decoherence thus isolating more clearly the possible dynamics of a photon wave function via intention.  Our main hypothesis consists on the assumption that the interaction of distant intention and photon-rhodopsin pair will result in a swift from a simple and straight forward absorption process to that of a single entry in the density matrix representation thus leading to case of wave function collapse (WFC).
