Non Locality = Universal Consciousness?

One of the greatest mysteries of quantum mechanics is non-locality.

Non locality is if you take two quantum particles that were twins and separate them billions of miles apart, and then do something to one particle here, the other particle billions of light years away will immediately come to know about what you did to that one particle here!!

This quantum property has been confirmed by experiments. Einstein did not like this instantaneous exchange of information, which even though did not violate causality, but indeed did violate locality! He called it Spooky action at a distance!

Einstein tried to show the existence of non-locality in quantum mechanics by his famous EPR thought experiment, and said how can this be possible?.
But Bell’s theorem proved that for quantum mechanics to be right, non-locality had to exist! And quantum mechanics is indeed correct in its domain! And non-locality does exist!

Now the interesting observation we have to make here is that all particles in this universe are twins, in the sense they all can be traced back to a common ancestral origin during the big bang!

In other words, what happens to every particle should become known to every other particle in this universe! So the whole universe is interconnected?!

Now how can we explain this?

Whole universe is interconnected, so doesnt it mean that universe is a self-aware consciousness as described in the vedic texts?

Assume that there is a universe inside our brain. Brain is the universe and the people inside the brain discover non-locality saying what happens to one particle inside the brain is known to all other particles within the brain. For them that might be a surprise!

But for me, the owner of the brain, it is of no surprise! Why? Because, it is my brain and my consciousness is all pervading within the brain ;)
[Note that this is just to give an example at a high level and I am ignoring details like what information is stored in which part of the brain]

So what might look as non-locality at a local level inside the brain, when observed from higher level outside the brain is a perfect locality – the locality of the consciousness within the entire brain.

Similarly what we observe as non-locality of particles in the universe is actually the locality of the universal consciousness. The vedas say that we are all local manifestations of the universal consciousness, and also that the supreme consciousness pervades the entire universe. Aham Brahmasmi say the vedas, meaning I am the supreme, in other words we are all local manifestations of the supreme universal consciousness, and quantum particles are no exception to it? In fact vedas say that the supreme consciousness exists in everything throughout the universe and is not just limited to what we define as life!
So non-locality is nothing but a proof of existence of the universal consciousness described in the vedic texts?

  1. There is an exerpt of interesting conversations, related to the topic, between Albert Einstein and Rabindranath Tagore which took place in July and August 1930, at http://www.mukto-mona.com/Articles/einstein_tagore.htm

    The webpage also contains the related comments as independent of the universe Nobel Chemist Ilya Prigogine as well as the outlandish observations made by mathematician Bertrand Russell regarding Indian philosophy in general and Tagore’s lectures on the same. Russell, it may be noted, had claimed he was just one of two people who had understood relativity. He has written books on Relativity as though it is the final exposition of reality whilst Einstein himself, in the light of his conversation with Tagore, obviously had a lot of questions and doubts on such declaration.

  2. I wish I knew the Vedas but then again I would not understand it, it is too scientific for me it seems. I need simple examples thats why I think up all kinds of stupid things to explain to myself what I think or read. Its very motivating to read that I?m somehow on the right track. Thank you very much, you are indeed my Guru.

  3. A simply wonderful example Veronica! Yes, you are absolutely right, this is what the vedas say that we need to recognize this supreme (water in your example) within us to recognize the oneness of self and supreme as given by
    Aham Brahmasmi (Self is the Supreme) + Isha Vasyam Idam Sarvam (Entire universe is pervaded by the Supreme)

  4. sainath said: “”I mean we talk about a very minute particle/quantum level?but at human level (Human GUI) we dont know if anything happens to other person at a distant.””

    Could it not be because we believe in separation and what we believe we concieve? If life or consciousness pervades all space or is the universe itself then every particle in the universe is aware of every other particle consciously or unconsciously. If all things are the un-manifested itself in different forms and composition, then the un-manifested is conscious of all its manifestations. The manifestations themselves are fooled by their structures & compositions into thinking it is that form and not the unmanifested.

    My way of understanding this I use a simple experiment I will take a bucket of water and put some water in different containers, any thing that can hold water even if it is just a drop.
    I will then say the water in the pot thinks it is the pot and not the water, the water in the glass sees itself also as the glass, etc. The pot looks at the glass and says ?you are a senseless ugly thing? and the rest of the containers does more or less the same to other containers. None of the containers realise that they are just form and the water in these containers don?t realise that it is not the container but water. When you throw all the water back into the bucket they are all one again, you can?t pick out which water was in which container. If the water in the different containers were to realise it is water and not the containers, the water in every container would be aware of the experiences of the water in every container thus knowing that they are one and the same thing.

  5. Sainath,
    According to Q.M intrepetation every particle effects the entire universe. Some scientists and philosophers believe
    the conciousness is the one carries the reactions.
    The information is there how we effect the entire universe with in us. . The question and challenge is how is how we can retrive that information.

  6. Gurudev a good thought

    but I am a bit confused with following
    “”In other words, what happens to every particle should become known to every other particle in this universe””

    I mean we talk about a very minute particle/quantum level…but at human level (Human GUI) we dont know if anything happens to other person at a distant.
    I mean as per above statement every particle is aware what happens to other particle but we as a human dont know or understand what happens to other person though we are made up of these quantum particles…??
    or is it only applied to twin particles ??

    I hope i was able to put across my query
