Tomorrow’s Physics Alters Information Technology Which Alters Global Economics and Social Science

Authors: Rodney Bartlett

Hidden Variables are presently hypothetical factors based on the belief that the theory of quantum mechanics is incomplete. Their identification would lead to exact predictions, not just probabilities, for the outcomes of measurements. Albert Einstein is the most famous proponent of hidden variables (it will be shown that the variables are compatible with entanglement, what Einstein called the result of “spooky action at a distance”). Their existence would vindicate his belief that quantum mechanics is lacking something. If probability is deleted at the universe’s most fundamental level, computer-generated random numbers (and the online security which is based on them) will become vulnerable to computer hackers. Addressing the security of credit cards, a partial remedy would be to develop a worldwide system for increasing each person’s standard of living that totally eliminates money in all its forms. Then there’d be no credit-card details for hackers to steal. This radical step seems to be possible because the human instinct to survive is much greater than other drives such as self-interest and greed. If money ceases to be an option, people will freely share and cooperate if that’s the only way to not merely ensure survival, but to actually improve everyone’s standard of life. The security of government and military records that are encrypted online depends on people eventually realizing that we’re all invisibly and permanently connected (by Hidden Variables). Then hurting others in any manner is the same as hurting yourself and hackers would simply have no motive to hack in evil ways. Realization of our invisible/permanent interconnectedness would also be of great assistance in achieving post-economic sharing and cooperation. This invisible, permanent connection affects not just every part of space (including on Earth) but also every part of time, since physics says space and time can never be separated - giving living beings a conscious existence that continues after death and, bizarrely, before conception.
