Morphic Pilot Theory: Toward an Extension of Quantum Physics that Better Explains Psi Phenomena
The paper is here in PDF form
While the empirical data supporting the existence of psi phenomena is now quite strong, the search for a theoretical understanding of
these phenomena has been much less successful. Here a class of extensions of quantum physics is proposed, which appear broadly consistent
both with existing physics data and with the body of data regarding
psi phenomena. The basic idea is to view "subquantum fluctuations"
as biased randomness, where the bias embodies a tendency to convey
physical impulse between parts of spacetime with similar pattern or
form. In a Bohmian interpretation of quantum physics, this biasing
would take the form of a "morphic pilot wave," with a bias to move
in directions of greater "similarity of patternment" (or more colorfully,
"morphic resonance"). In a Feynman interpretation, it would take the
form of a biasing of the measure used within path integrals, so as to
give paths in directions of greater morphic resonance a greater weight.
Theories in this class could take many possible equational forms, and
several such forms are displayed here to exemplify the approach.
