Tom Campbell answers the most pressing questions regarding his experiments.
Richard Feynman, one of the great theoretical physicists said, “Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. “Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”
I cannot say that Tom Campbell’s MBT quantum mechanics experiments are undisciplined, perhaps they are irreverent, but they are certainly original. His approach to deriving quantum mechanics from first principles, thus explaining the “why” of it as well as the computational "how", challenges current beliefs of quantum physics.
Understanding (or not) what quantum physics implies about the nature of reality reminds us of another quote attributed to Richard Feynman: “Shut up and calculate”, which suggests that while the math of quantum mechanics is good at delivering the right answers, it offers no insight whatsoever into the seemingly unfathomable mystery of a quantum reality.
Tom Campbell’s MBT theory is taking the first step toward solving that mystery. Campbell challenges the traditional assumption that entanglement between particles and detectors somehow preserves the which-way information, even though the math dutifully produces the right answer.
In this video, Campbell discusses the connection between math and physical reality, and explains why computing the right answer does not necessarily imply that one has the correct understanding.
At present, quantum mechanics is a computational science, it is logical only in the sense that QM math is self-consistent. It is decidedly not logical in the sense that all other basic sciences are logical – that it is derivable from well understood first principles. Campbell plans to change that by deriving quantum theory from the first principles of MBT consciousness theory – an idea that seems plausible once one understands that consciousness is fundamental while all else is derived therefrom.
From the research Tom and his colleagues have conducted, it appears there are no experiments that define what the facts really are on this particular disagreement about the collection of which-way information.
That is why the experiments Tom has designed need to be conducted – to establish the truth. Theory is nothing but conjecture until an experiment is conducted to confirm or deny it.
Campbell, in this video freely discusses his own uncertainty, explaining that he does not have all the answers and could be working from an incorrect assumption. Certainty is not the nature of good science, or good scientists.
It is possible that conducting these experiments may solve the deep mystery Feynman knew still existed at the root quantum mechanics. We shall see.
