The Director of Quantum Gravity Research in Los Angeles, Klee Irwin, shares his mission to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, energy, matter, information and consciousness. His work with a group of physicists and mathematicians has developed an E8 quasicrystal quantum gravity framework based on the golden ratio and the Fibonacci chains.
Irwin and his team believe that this theory and research have the capacity to resolve the quantum decoherence problem that currently prohibits quantum computing technology. It may also assist scientists in better understanding low-energy nuclear reactions. Even more important, however, is the possibility that, should this research be successful, this model will be the only microscopic first-principles “theory of everything” able to provide an explanation for the fundamental constants such as the speed of light.
They also believe that, if proven correct, this paradigm will effectively counter the idea that consciousness and the geometric world of materiality are two separate things. Whether or not this model solves the so-called “mind-body problem” remains to be seen and is debatable, since it amounts to a kind of subtle reductionism (i.e., reducing consciousness to microscopic geometry). Nonetheless, this model is compelling, as it offers a nano-geometrical understanding of the subtle BODY of consciousness, the carrier-wave, so to speak, on and in which consciousness resides.
