The article states:
"In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. That fits well with the basic postulates of quantum mechanics science, according to which a certain particle can be present anywhere and an event can happen according to several, sometimes countless, ways."I have used this concept in all three of my Speculative Fiction books.
In The Gem of the Galaxy series the Evincor "collects/captures" a person's consciousness after bodily death. My protagonists, Dwinn (in Daughter of the Stone) and Juilan (in Child of the Mist) can communicate with past generations; their abilities and the Evincor are the basis of the Gem of the Galaxy culture.
It is rather nice to have my creative process given a sort of affirmation in scientific study. Here's another article by Lanza on this subject.
One bitsy problem with this article, however, is the title "Quantum Theory Proves..." I'm not certain anthing has been proven; it still seems to be scientific speculation...as string theory once was, and the existence of quarks. Proving this won't happen until we contact a consciousness that is beyond the constraints of time and space. Of course, some feel that this has been done. Psychics and mediums are often claiming to have communicated with people who have died. Perhaps we shouldn't chide them, but pay more attention.
While we're waiting for definitive proof, read about what might be real in Dead Heroes, Child of the Mist and Daughter of the Stone. All are available in print and for e-readers. Visit my Goodreads page to connect with them.
