Conscious Versus Unconscious Life.

Authors: Johan Noldus
Comments: 2 Pages.

I give away some further reflections regarding my latest two books on quantum gravity [1, 2] and the issue of life. I present some rather stunning ideas some of which go against common lore in the medical “sciences”.

Mind-Body Problem; A Final Solution by Quantum Language

Authors: Shiro Ishikawa
Comments: 7 Pages.

Recently we proposed “quantum language", which was not only characterized as the metaphysical and linguistic turn of quantum mechanics but also the linguistic turn of Descartes=Kant epistemology. If this turn is regarded as progress in the history of Western philosophy, we should study the linguistic mind-body problem more than the epistemological mind-body problem. In this paper we show that to solve the mind-body problem and to propose "measurement axiom" in quantum language are equivalent. Since our approach is within dualistic idealism, we believe that our linguistic solution is the only true solution ( i.e., even if the other solutions exist, they are not in philosophy but in science).
