Technology teaser

Just four decades ago, before the advent of the microchip, most computers operated with punch cards, magnetic tape and electrical wiring and stored data on magnetic tape. The technology of today is producing circuits that transmit data across “empty” spaces and store them on holographs.

Is this technology new? Well, no. Because at the same time neuroscience is discovering how the brain, evolving from millions of years back, transmits and stores data through a combination of physical and chemical impulses that can jump across the spaces between neurones. In the same way, since humankind has leared to harness the energy existing in nature and then to generate high-speed frequencies including microwaves and lasers, the need to use “physical” matter to transmit information is being overtaken by ethereal channels. Cause and effect are no longer seen as requiring a physical connection, the mechanical conception of Descartes which still predominates. Technology is turning to telepathy operating in what we have up to now regarded as emptiness and quantum theory and its exploration of quantum entanglement are seeking to explain the interaction between remote and seemingly unconnected particles.

The reason for this, of course, is that there is no emptiness. It is just that the certain particles which make up dark matter and black holes, what we do not see, have not yet been detected. But it is said that experiments being carried out in laboratories to produce the “atom” of dark matter, known as the otone, which goes beyond the rules of atomic energy. This is because the spectrum of frequencies we can detect, the visible, is only a small part of the full spectrum that exists. Our limited consciousness is the result of the limitations of micro- and tele-scopes which scientists until recently thought gave all the answers, all the rules, to how the universe is made up. As a result, we can only see as far back as an event known as the Big Bang. But beyond that, beyond our consciousness, are the invisible, the undetected, the frequencies we have yet to tap into collectively.

There are scientists who are aware, to some extent, of the technological potential of going beyond our limited universe. David Deutsch, a respected member of Oxford and Cambridge Universities’ joint organ, the Centre for Quantum Computation www.qubit.org , has proposed that the future of computing lies in the interconnection of parallel universes. Scientific theories developed from thermodynamics indicate that “our” universe is a holographic one, whose boundaries are set by the amount of potential information held within it. The smaller the particles/impulses/information bits, that we discover, the more that known universe will expand and the less we will depend on the physical world in which we have evolved.
