Why Evolution is Quantum

In my paper “The Role of Quantum Mechanics in Cognition Based Evolution,” I propose a new perspective on biology: thinking creates codes, which in turn control chemicals, much like a brain sending instructions to the body.

This challenges the traditional view in biology where it’s believed chemicals create codes leading to consciousness. There’s no evidence to support this traditional view in biology – only speculation.

Quantum mechanics, which is concerned with the unpredictable behavior of tiny particles, plays a crucial role in biology. By observing something, you change it. We have known this for 100 years.

All living cells act as ‘observers’ in the formal quantum sense, actively making choices and influencing what happens next.

“Negative information entropy” describes how living things create order out of chaos, making choices and creating structured information, contrasting with randomness. Life encompasses more than just chemical reactions; it’s about choices and information processing, not just automatic responses.

Reductionism, which tries to explain everything by breaking it down to its simplest components, falls short in explaining the complexity of life. It’s akin to trying to understand a forest by only examining the mushrooms growing on one tree.

Living organisms are more than just machines following a set program. They are capable of making complex choices, something machines cannot mimic. Biology has unique qualities that transcend mere chemistry and physics.

The “double slit experiment” in quantum mechanics reveals that particles behave differently under observation. This suggests that particles are aware of being watched and change their behavior accordingly.

Multiple biological processes, such as enzyme catalysis, photosynthesis, and olfaction, cannot be fully explained without factoring in quantum mechanics. Quantum behavior in these processes shows that organisms consider multiple future paths and then act to create order from chaos, without violating physical laws.

The traditional view of causation in biology as a sequence of chemicals leading to code and then to cognition is unsupported by evidence. The genetic code, for instance, doesn’t just spontaneously arise from chemistry. Instead, it’s the product of an intentional process, akin to writing software.

Finally, the role of cognition in biology is paramount. It’s not just an emergent property or byproduct but a fundamental aspect of life. This perspective opens up new avenues for understanding the interplay between life and the quantum world, suggesting that life itself is a special phenomenon that goes beyond the current understanding of physics and chemistry.

Here, I predict that not only humans but also dogs, goldfish and even single cells can collapse a wave function – because they are observers. I describe experiments we need to conduct to explore this.

These could lead to groundbreaking discoveries in science, comparable to quantum mechanics itself, relativity, and the discovery of DNA.

    My apologies, but my comment does not apply to the topic. How do I get to the supplemental material from the book Evolution 2.0? I bought and downloaded the audio version on audible. The book says to go to cosmicfingureprints.com/supplement. However, the site does not load. Thank you for the information.
