What is it about?

This research proposes a conscious model of particle physics that integrates consciousness as a fundamental dimension, to reconcile local and non-local realities. Quantum entanglement is explained through hidden variables confined to a non-material conscious dimension. Heisenberg's uncertainty principle is linked to observer consciousness. The "primion" particle is introduced to facilitate interactions between consciousness and elementary particles, shedding light on phenomena such as wave function collapse. The model suggests that the apparent randomness in quantum mechanics arises from a lack of understanding of consciousness, framing quantum phenomena as causal, deterministic, and unpredictable or chaotic when consciousness is accounted for. Overall, this framework offers insights into the role of consciousness in shaping our understanding of reality, extending beyond traditional sensory perception to unify local and non-local awareness.

Why is it important?

The proposition of integrating consciousness into particle physics is both intellectually stimulating and philosophically profound. The idea of a conscious model of particle physics represents a bold departure from conventional approaches, inviting us to reconsider the very fabric of reality and our place within it. Quantum mechanics has long been perplexed with its counterintuitive phenomena, such as entanglement and uncertainty. While traditional interpretations have provided mathematical frameworks to describe these phenomena, they often fall short in offering a holistic understanding. The introduction of consciousness as a fundamental dimension offers a tantalizing possibility of bridging the gap between knowledge and experience, shedding light on the deeper mysteries of the quantum realm. At its core, this research challenges us to broaden our perspective beyond the confines of materialism and embrace the notion that consciousness plays a fundamental role in shaping the universe. It suggests that our observations and measurements are not merely passive reflections of an objective reality but are intricately intertwined with the very fabric of existence. This reframing of quantum mechanics as a dialogue between consciousness and the quantum world has profound implications for our understanding of the universe and our place within it. Moreover, the integration of consciousness into particle physics holds promise for interdisciplinary collaboration, transcending the boundaries between physics, philosophy, psychology and engineering. It invites us to explore the nature of subjective experience and its relationship to the objective world, bridging the gap between empirical observation and introspective insight. While this research may challenge long-established paradigms and provoke spirited debate, it also offers an exciting opportunity for intellectual exploration and discovery. By embracing the notion of a conscious universe, we may uncover new vistas of knowledge and understanding, enriching our scientific discourse and deepening our appreciation of the profound mysteries that lie at the heart of existence.


This research proposes a unique framework for comprehending reality by intertwining principles from physics, consciousness studies, and metaphysics. It suggests that consciousness transcends being merely a product of complex biological systems, positing it as an independent fundamental dimension of reality. Consciousness facilitates connections beyond local space-time boundaries, such as those observed in quantum entanglement, while also maintaining the integrity of awareness within reality. Moreover, this perspective introduces the idea of wisdom inherent in non-local consciousness, surpassing conventional modes of perception and understanding. It implies that our sensory experiences, measurements, and analytical capabilities provide only a partial understanding of reality, which should be fully realized through consciousness. Therefore, the mind that underpins consciousness is a sensor that enables the wisdom of both local and non-local realities.
