Ofcourse, nobody will read this anyway. But if, by any chance, someone accidently would "land" on this site:
Below you may find a number of subjects which I truly find remarkable, and interesting.

In a similar way, I hope to produce a number of such notes.

Chapter 1. A pseudo equation to relate Objective- and Local/Personal reality.
Chapter 2. What can it be?: The 6th sense of women.
Chapter 3. A few words on "Realness".

Chapter 1. A pseudo equation to relate Objective- and Local/Personal reality.

1.1 Overview Local- or personal reality, vs Objective reality.

Tons of articles have been published, on the "misty" subject of "Reality".

Or..., is it not "misty" at all...? And is it just me, who thinks it's all a bit foggy?
Well, you do not have to hesitate to call me a silly guy... Really !

It's indeed quite established that our brain, "filters" and "massage" information, originating
from "outside" us. Whatever way you turn it, there seems to be a "local realism" which applies
to you (and me, and everybody else). So, it's your personal local reality.

Apart from the (personal) "local reality", there exists consensus about the existence of "objective reality",
which is independent from you. Indeed, the Earth, the Sun, the Universe...., it simply exists...
So, when I am gone, the Earth, the Solar system, and all that, remain to exist (obviously).

So, you might agree, or you might not agree, that we have (at least) two types of realities:
(personal) "local reality" (not meaning local from QM) and (independent) "objective reality".

However, the upper statements cannot be fully correct. For example, in Quantum physics, we have in certain
microscopic observations, that the Quantum system (under investigation), and the Observer, cannot be
viewed as fully seperated. Yes...., ofcourse the Interpretation of the measurement and the outcome
is critical too.
There thus remain difficulties in insisting that a true Objective reality (totally disconnected from you),
exists, that is, a "true" statement at all times.

What are some key elements in the "massage" and filtering?
Well, at least the following seems to play a role:

-Biological inheritence.
-Education (e.g. kids grow up in some environment, which "forms" them).
-Education (studies etc..).
-Luck (e.g. if you are unlucky, unfortunate, you might go off track).
-Sensory filtering (e.g. not all what the senses observe, will be passed through).
-Filtering/massage a brain performs at default.
-Intrinsic (per person) filtering/massage (very specific, for specific individuals).
-physical limitations.
-State of mind (at some moment), and emotions.
and tons of other elements...

Psychology (sociology) studies an enormous amount of facinating subjects.
For example, what do you think of the large subject of "perception"?

1.2 An Emulated, or virtual Universe (Reality), is likely not to be "true".

Some folks advocate, that we exist in an emulated Universe, and you are an emulation too.
As if a super computer is running, which have this all in memory (or in something else).
This would place "reality" in quite some other context.

Indeed. This would turn everything upside down.

Why is this not likely?

1. It's not mandatory to assume that "hyper being(s)" have set up this emulation, but generally
it is assumed to be the case. But then..., at a higher level "ultra hyper beings" might have
set up an emulation where the (lower) "hyper being" are in, that is, emulated.
It's quite evident that this would quickly lead to causality conflicts.
If "hyper being(s)" can setup an emulation, then why not have "ultra hyper beings"?
That would be a massive emulation, within a massive emulation. Would it break down?

2. In a Universe (emulated Universe?), where "true" stochastic events occur, it is not likely
that it can be succesfully emulated. This would be different (but still unlikely), if all
events were deterministic.
Yeah... but why? Again, if causality still must hold, then stochastic events would quickly
desync the emulation. Ofcourse, you might find the reasoning nonsense.

Note: "true" stochastic is meant to be fundamentally different from a computing random generator,
since the latter is just an algolrithm.

- It's not too hard to find many other pro- and contra arguments.

- One pro argument could be that "reasoning is like a form of computing..." or an argument like
"Our reality is really quite similar to the worst B movie....".

- Another often heard pro argument is, that the Universe is a big Quantum Computer, since Quantum effects
are everywhere and it could be indeed so that (e.g. all fermions) form an insanely large "Computation".
I don't buy it..., but who knows....?

Indeed, I have an objection. The point namely is, that "c" is the max speed at which information can travel.
The Universe is "rather large", so "far out" regions can (probably) considered to be causaly "disconnected".
This would especially hold, if the Universe undergoes an accelerated expansion (as many astronomers currently believe),
so that waves would (over large distances) so much stretched, that information cannot reach other far out regions anymore.
That would be a weak point for the idea of the Universe as a Quantum Computer.


One tempting theory from Physics, namely adS/CFT, deals with a (usually) 5D space, where a
manifold "sits around" the Bulk of Space. Ofcourse, it's not really "around" (like the surface of a sphere).
The problem is that a 5D spacetime is rather difficult to visualize in mind.

One problem in Physics was to harmonize Quantum theories with Gravity. adS/CFT might be the right track
to solve it. Here, the Bulk, is gravity dominated, where SpaceTime "emerges" thanks to the Quantum Information
in that "manifold" at the rim of the Bulk.

A key point here, is the Quantum information at "that manifold". A diehard person, who perse wants to see a strong pointer
in favor of an emulated Universe, might be happy here. Indeed, what if Quantum information "somewhere at a rim", determines
everything in the Bulk of SpaceTime....?
It's ofcourse speculation, but the idea has some features of..... 'emulation'.....

1.3 A pseudo equation.

Let's try a simple pseudo expression, to relate (personal) "local reality" and (independent) "objective reality".
It will be in the form of an Operator "H", like for example an Operator which maps a 3D vector onto some 2D plane, in that 3D space.

So,it will be like |I> = H * |O> where |I> is the image "vector" (matrix), or personal reality, and |O>
is the Objective reality where the subject is part of.

Note that many mappings and transformations in Physics and math have, or use, such sort of construct.

|φ (Personal reality) > = |θ(filtering, massage, state, limitations senses etc..)>   *   |Ω (Objective reality)>

Due to the effect of filtering, massage, biological inheritence, limitations of the senses etc.. on Objective Reality,
we end up with Local or Personal Reality, which is, what someone "perceives" as the World (or what seems to be true).

It must be written in terms of factors, since θ should be in the form of an "operator" (see below).

It is ofcourse so, that |θ(filtering, massage, state, limitations senses etc..)> will never be "1", otherwise
we would have

|φ (local reality) = |Ω (objective reality)>

thus local reality equals objective reality, which is (most certainly) impossible.

The expression above, suggest a function. Ofcourse, better seems to be a vectorial or tensor relation,
since the human factors which lead to a personal local reality, are many, such as
mental state, biological inherentance, limitation of the sensory inputs, experiences of the past, massage of information
by the brain, filtering information etc.. etc..
Also, the objective reality where the person is in, can only be described by a larger n-tuple, or n,m tuple,
which then leads to a matrix relation.
Thus, a more appropriate relation seems to be:

φ (local reality) = θ(filtering, massage, state, limitations senses etc..)   *   Ω (objective reality)

where φ, θ, Ω are matrices.

Notemki9ua\zas that θ "looks" (or works) like an operator, projecting objective reality to a personal local reality.

The proposition of these expressions should be "reasonable", since operators are used almost everywhere in Physics
and other sciences, whenever "transformations" are used.

Ofcourse, these are all pseudo expressions.

As a very simple example from math, illustrating a projection, might be this: suppose you have a vector (1,2,3) in 3D Space,
represented by a coordinate system. Usually, this means we have representation of an arrow, from (0,0,0) to (1,2,3).
An arbitrary point (vector) in 3D space, can then be written as (x,y,z), where x, y, z can all have certain values.
You can write down an "operator" which projects the vector (x,y,z) to the vector (x,y,0), which then becomes
the projected vector in the XY subplane.

It seems reasonable to think that the human mind works in a similar way. Only the features of Reality which
"fits" the scope of a biological entity, with all filtering/massage/etc.. in place, leads to a Reduction (or projection).

It's likely to be too simple. However, the core idea might not be so bad (?).... I am not sure at all.
And I do not think that "the idea" is new at all. No way.

Chapter 2. What can it be?: The 6th sense of women.

2.1. Overview:

I am quite sure that it's real. Woman do have it, but men probably do not. Indeed Strange..., and what is it?

I have seen at least 5 cases, where women either knew something which normally one would consider
to be impossible to know, or, they made a decision (out of many choiches) which turned out to be the best one.
For the latter, as I as I have observed, that was in a situation with stress.

It seems that many folks see that there are two main streams here: "female intuition" and what is often called the "6th sense".
Contrary, many others would say that they are quite the same.

Still, I believe that many folks would agree to the descriptions below, that:

- "female intuition" has mainly to do with human interaction, like for example that a woman can quickly detect
the state of another person, based on the facial expression, eye contact, voice intonation, body language etc...

- But..., the 6th sense goes much deeper. This often has to do with events, where they could not have obtained information
"in the normal way", but still are able to understand what is going on, or understand what is about to happen.

Maybe some would say that female intuition is just the the 6th sense, acting in lower gear, so a sort of weaker variant.
Ofcourse I don't know really, but I suspect that the 6th sense is way deeper, like a sort of entanglement
with the physical and sociological Worlds.

However, many would maintain that "female intuition" and the "6th sense" are the same.
I would argue that they are quite different. Indeed, a key point of a female's 6th sense", seems to be
an awareness of non-observable conditions, or events, taking place now, or in the (near) future.

It is highly remarkable, and thus it is a good subject for this note.

but first of all, I like to make clear that:

-Ofcourse, I understand that people, who have never witnessed such an event, will probably have
a hard time believing the material in this section.

-The phenomenon described here, happens only in quite rare circumstances. Evidently, I am not suggesting
that women experience this often. Contrary: it's not frequent at all.

-This section feels a tiny bit slippery, since it's a subject for women. It would have been best if a girl
wrote this. Well..., I am not. Sorry for that.

-I only have observed the phenomenon with women (5x). Therefore I think that men do not have this ability.
But I cannot be sure of that, ofcourse.

2.2. 6th or 7th sense? Or other sense?:

It might be a bit of an "unhappy" term to call something the 6th sense.
Traditionally, we have the 5 familiar senses "sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste".

Well, for example this does not account for sense of acceleration, pain, joy etc.., so the classification might be percieved
as a bit "unhappy" or inadequate.

So, some scientists relate the 7th sense to the immune system, and others to Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) etc.. etc..
Indeed, even some scientists see reasons to name up to 11, or even 20 senses, although some senses are hypothetical.

Recently, some scientists have reserved the 6th sense, for the ability to orientate in space (proprioception)
which might help to understand why artists, and folks in sport, are able to coordinate all bodyparts in the proper way.

I guess I only want to say is that what I mean by the 6th sense, is the peculiar ability of women
the display the awareness of non-observable conditions, or events, taking place now, or in the (near) future.

2.3. One case briefly described:

I did a sort of inventory, of what I have witnessed myself over the years. Well, at least 5 remarkable cases.
And, I am quite sure, that if you would scan your memory, you would find some cases yourself.
But, if you have never seen it, it's probably hard to believe.

Here, I will a very short description of one case, which never stopped amazing me.
Originally, I planned to describe more cases, but now I think that it will not add much value.

Somewhere in the late '80's, I walked downtown my hometown in The Netherlands. Slightly ahead of me, was walking
and elderly lady with her daughter. I knew the lady remotely, since she was a friend of my mother.
Suddenly, the lady dropped onto the floor, crying loudly that her boy just died.
This happened in a regular shopping street, and nowhere was any sign of on accident or something of that nature.
But the lady was inconsolable, and it all was terrible to witness.
I try to write this with utmost respect. But you undoubtly will understand the my difficulty here.

One day later I learned that her son, in his mid thirties, died from a fatal heart attack, while in another city about 120km away.
The tragedy happened at about 1.30pm. That was the time I saw the lady collapse.
In that period, I believe it was 1987, smartphones and such nifty stuff did not existed yet.

So, what can be an explanation? How did she knew? How did she sensed it? I will try in section 2.4.

2.4. A proposed semi-explanation:

It's ofcourse totally impossible to come up with "explanation" for a woman's "6th sense".
But a basis idea is described below, which is certainly no more than a semi-explanation.

If you would say afterwards: "It's still rather vague...", then that is certainly true, since a true solution
can certainly not be expected from me...

I am not disrespectful in the following example. I rather shoot myself, before to misuse anything.
If we take a look again at the case described above. Now, I rearrange it into a thought experiment, as follows:

Suppose I am an astronaut, landed on Mars. On Earth, there lives my girlfriend.
Now, I have a heartattack, and unfortunately, I pass away. Suppose, my grilfriend would, in principle, be able to "sense"
this unobservable.

Now, suppose, an electromagnetic "signal" (like light) needs 10 min to reach my girlfriend.

What would we see? Would my girlfriend only react after 10 minutes? Or would the distance be too large? Or what?

I think it would be instantaneously, because I think entanglement (or some sort of EPR channel) forms the basis
for my girfriend to sense the un-observable (which becomes an observable, actually).

Be advised: I certainly do not suggest "Faster Than Light", since physics tells us that information transfer
can be no faster than the speed of light. Only in certain circustances, like entangled systems, non-locality
(or some use the term EPR channel) is that remarkable feature which underlies this phenomenon.

Does it break causality? No, the event already "just" happened, and there is no way to alter it.

This needs some further deepening ofcourse.

Chapter 3 below, will review some main findings from Physics. Those modern theories might also provide
a framework to explain the phenomenon showed in this section. Key point will remain "entanglement".

But I simply must give my reasoning here:

More details will follow in the next chapter.
The theory is not trivial. In short, and as an example, Quantum computing implemented
on the Google Sycamore processor, showed recently that the adS/CFT principle could be emulated,
thereby significally stimulating the theory. As said: This will be a part of chapter 3.

One element is, that entanglement is interconnected with spacetime geometry, with the structures of boundary entanglement
forming the structure of spacetime (in the socalled Bulk). Today, many physicists see the the adS/CFT principle, to be the right track
for describing gravity- and quantum theories. Traversable wormholes, and manifestations of ER=EPR,
are no extraordinary features. The link with information above, is that entanglement is a primary "fundamental feature"
in our universe.

It's a real serious thougt, that SpaceTime is "knitted" through entangled structures. Although you may not imagine
a bulb or cilinder, with dimension N-1, compared to the "N dim. bulk" space within that cilinder, this is often
how adS/CFT is depicted. Source of the idea is: you can harmonize Quantum Theories with Relativity
by assuming that a N-1 manifold exists along (enclosing) the Bulk space. It has a lot of similarities
with a Hologram. Here, a 2D Space can generate a 3D Space, as it seems to a human observer.

On a smaller scale, with two entangled particles (or photons), we can see that a measurement on one particle
(for a certain property, like spin), immediately affects the other particle, independant the distance between them.
At the measurement on the first particle, the entanglement breaks, and "it looks like as if SpaceTime between them
does not exist anymore" until the EPR channel is gone, and the two particles mind their own business again.

My hypotheses is, in order to try to explain the ability of women to detect or sense, unobservable events,
is that "somehow" they can tap in (or start/maintain/end) entanglement with such an unobservable event.
Since entanglement is such a primary feature, it seems natural to use it in this subject too.

Even more spectacular is the ER=EPR hypothesis. ER means "Einsteind - Rosen", where both gentlemen
explored the theories of Wormholes (Einstein-Rosen bridges) in (macroscopic) SpaceTime.
Based on General Relativity, the theories are intruiging.

EPR stands for "Einsteind - Podolsky - Rosen", where these gentlemen produced the famous EPR article.
Main theme was the argument that Quantum Mechanics was not "complete" since it could not "really" account
for entanglement, without proposing a "hidden contract" between the particles", or "hidden variables",
which then could explain the phenomenon. However, much later, the Bell theorem seemed to disprove
hidden variables, and gradually the concept on "nonlocality" became accepted.
In light of the new theories, EP=ERP could mean that Entanglement ≡ Wormhole.

True, this all probably still is vague, but it seems to me that any sort of "classical" mechanism would not work.

Further, I could be biased (in some way), simply because I have witnessed a few cases.
But I am still asking myself, even if scientific arguments are present...., how on Earth is it all possible.....

Maybe women are indeed entangled with the Universe. And men..., simply don't have it... Sorry !!!

Chapter 3. A few words on "Realness".

Maybe you think that my subjects are bit weird. Hopefully not. But who knows?
Anyway, the subject in this Chapter is from real Physics.
