Just a few days ago, I’d been scrolling through a few emails on my tablet and saw that included in my “X” (formerly Twitter) notifications was a post by well known journalist and UFO researcher George Knapp. Something told me to open up the notification to see what he’d posted, which I never do.  After perusing the post, I promptly closed it. The tablet then defaulted back to it’s home screen. My eyes swiftly went to a feature on the tablet called “photo memories.” And there it was, a picture I had taken with Knapp while in Los Angeles several years ago. Out of possibly thousands of images on my tablet, why did George Knapp’s image come up? Moreover, why did an image that had no significance in terms of anniversary date or any other possible link have triggered this featured photo memory for the day? Clearly I’d witnessed a classic, though seemingly meaningless synchronicity. But was it actually without meaning?

Cut to the next day. My husband had been outside watering one of my flower beds during our days long sweltering heat wave. An hour or so later, he looked at the flowers still looking parched and wilted, and thought to himself (well actually he spoke it out loud), “Wow it looks like you flowers need more water!” Not one minute later, the sprinkler system zone that waters the flowers twice daily suddenly switched on, drenching the garden bed with much needed moisture! When I walked outside to the flower bed, he asked me if I’d just turned on the sprinkler system. I answered, “No.” I’d been inside working in my study. Did the system either glitch out, switching on by accident or was it triggered by my husband’s observation of the flower’s desperate need for more water? Though the latter scenario would seem far less plausible, could this have been another instance of synchronicity, far fetched as this may appear?

Synchronicity is a concept introduced by the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung to describe events that are meaningfully related but not causally connected. For example, thinking about a person and then receiving a call from them shortly after can be seen as a common synchronous event. While Jung’s concept is rooted in psychology, there are intriguing perspectives from quantum physics that attempt to explain such phenomena. One of these perspectives involves the idea of conscious quantum entanglement. But it can get even more far out than that. In this post, I will also delve into the concept of panpsychism – the idea that consciousness is a fundamental aspect of the universe, present to some degree in all matter, whether animate or inanimate.

The Concept of Conscious Quantum Entanglement

“So the ultimate non-local entangled field is the conscious mind itself.” – Steven Greer

In a recent interview with popular podcast host Patrick Bet-David, UFOlogist and retired physician Steven Greer discussed how occurrences of synchronicity can be explained via a quantum model.

“…this gets back into conscious quantum entanglement. So the ultimate non-local entangled field is the conscious mind itself. You know Erwin Schrödinger who was one of the fathers of quantum mechanics in particle wave theory. In 1908 he said the total number of Minds in the universe is one and that is a singularity. So the real Singularity they’re looking for is actually the Consciousness field,” Greer said.

This statement brings together two intriguing ideas from quantum mechanics and consciousness studies. Let’s break it down:

1. Quantum Entanglement

Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon where two or more particles become linked and instantaneously affect each other, regardless of the distance separating them. This non-local connection means that a change in the state of one particle will result in a corresponding change in the other, no matter how far apart they are.

2. Consciousness as a Non-Local Field

Greer’s statement suggests that consciousness itself can be seen as an ultimate non-local entangled field. This means that individual minds are not separate entities but part of a single, interconnected consciousness. This idea aligns with the perspective of Erwin Schrödinger, a pioneer of quantum mechanics, who proposed that the total number of minds in the universe is one—a singular consciousness.

When we think about a person and then receive a call from them shortly after, it may seem like mere coincidence. However, if we consider the idea of conscious quantum entanglement, this event can be seen as a manifestation of the interconnectedness of minds. The thought of the person and their subsequent call are not just random occurrences but rather linked through the unified field of consciousness.

Where that may be all well and good within the quantum mechanics model, though there are still many detractors of this idea, the key factor in this explanation considers that the participants in a synchronous event are conscious living entities…human beings.

But if synchronicities like that of the thought of a person preceding a phone call from the person can be explained within the consciousness model, how would you explain the two equally classic synchronicities described earlier?

Panpsychism and Synchronicity

Let’s first take the “George Knapp” synchronicity.  In the case of my having the brief thought of opening the “X” post from Knapp and subsequently reading it, followed by my seeing a photo memory of my photo with Knapp suddenly pop up on my tablet’s home screen begs the question: could inanimate objects – namely the tablet itself have it’s own measure of individuated consciousness? In other words, though my own participation in this synchronous event (the conscious thought) played a role, it could be argued under this model of conscious quantum entanglement coupled with panpsychism, that all parties involved in the entanglement would have to be conscious as well.

In the case of panpsychism, even something considered inanimate, a hammer, a door, or in this case, the tablet device can actually participate in a quantum event based on the notion that they too have a measure of consciousness, though significantly smaller than that of human consciousness…or so it seems!

And although murky and arguably even a bit creepy, the notion that technology (that of the tablet) and it’s largely being driven by artificial intelligence also begets the notion that A.I. has the potential to espouse a measure of self-initiated consciousness. Yet another perplexing dimension to the quantum entanglement reality!

Though considered philosophical in nature, panpsychism is the view that consciousness or mind is a fundamental and pervasive aspect of the universe, present to some degree in all matter. This means that all physical entities, from the smallest particles to the largest structures, possess some form of consciousness or subjective experience.

What makes this particularly intriguing, given the example we are using, is that the animate and inanimate can and do get entangled and as a result, can occasionally intersect, causing synchronistic, intuitive or even telepathic events to occur.

Take the famous experiment conducted by noted researcher Dr. Cleve Backster.

Backster was an American polygraph expert best known for his pioneering work in plant perception research. In the 1960s, while working as a polygraph examiner for the CIA, Backster conducted an experiment that would challenge conventional scientific understanding.

Intrigued by the possibility of detecting consciousness in plants, Backster attached a polygraph machine to a dracaena plant in his office. The polygraph, commonly used to measure physiological responses in humans, recorded electrical activity within the plant.

To his surprise, Backster discovered that the plant exhibited significant electrical reactions not only to physical stimuli but also to human emotions and thoughts. For instance, the plant’s response spiked when Backster merely imagined harming it, suggesting a form of communication or sensitivity to human intention.

This experiment led to the controversial hypothesis that plants might possess a form of consciousness or awareness, leading one to consider that within this quantum entanglement between the animate and inanimate, telepathy can also occur.

This of course brings us back to the flowers asking for more water and my husband’s acknowledgement of this triggering the inanimate sprinkler system to respond with an immediate action.

Here we potentially have three parties, including the plants, all entangled within the quantum hologram in order to bring about a synchronistic event!

Exploring the Implications

If our minds are entangled within a singular consciousness field, this could explain instances of telepathy or a strong intuitive connection with others. The flow of information or thoughts could transcend physical boundaries, allowing for communication that isn’t bound by conventional means.

The idea of a singular consciousness suggests that at a fundamental level, not just all beings, but all things are interconnected. This can have profound implications for how we understand the very nature of reality itself. It posits that our individual experiences are part of a larger, unified experience.

The concept of conscious quantum entanglement provides an intriguing framework for understanding synchronicity. By viewing our minds as interconnected within a non-local field of consciousness, we can begin to see synchronous events not as mere coincidences but as reflections of a deeper, unified reality. This perspective challenges our conventional understanding of the mind and opens up new avenues for exploring the mysteries of both human and non human consciousness and its connection to the quantum realm.

    Great article! All of these things prove to me that the physical world is an extension of our thoughts; is created BY our thoughts. The most important skill we can hone in this new era is self-control, the self-mastery of our minds.

    Until we stop looking at things objectively it’s when we can open our minds up to how subjective reality actually is. Things is always working in our favor so we have to allow ourselves to be tapped in to the infinite possibilities, and not be spooked out by the nature of it. We are all connected and in that connection is how we are all in it together. This was beautiful Alexis!
