Modern physics

Modern physics is based on the discoveries of quantum mechanics, was an important breaking point in the classical description of the physical world of Galilean and Newtonian mold. The study of the properties of subatomic particles, considered as the fundamental units of the atom, has revealed that:

 is not possible to measure simultaneously the position and momentum of the particles, thus replacing a deterministic view of science in a description understood in terms of probability (the Heisenberg uncertainty principle);
 the particles have a complementary nature, particle and wave, which occur depending on the conditions imposed by the experimenter, they also are not divisible into smaller parts at a fundamental level (in fact, their further division, producing a particle of the same size as the original );
 there is a whole range of positions that can take the electron before interacting with the system that observes (describable by means of the Schrodinger wave equation);
 is not possible, therefore, to separate the property "objective" than those of the "subjective", experienced by the person who observes them. For this reason, it was recognized that the mind participates in determining the properties of the observed (Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics);
 there is a type of non-local communication, or superbright, between two spatially separated particles, thus not dependent on their distance. The concept of acausality in physics has been shown definitively in 1982 by Alain Aspect.

That the universe, at a fundamental level, is present as a set of interrelated and interpenetrating phenomena, is also shown by the principle that forms the background to the theories of unification of all known elementary particles (S-matrix theory) and those of unification of fundamental forces (Grand Unified Theory, Theory of supersymmetry, string theory).

The ultimate demonstration of a coherent theory of everything is a goal toward which they turn many current studies. It is already a known fact, however, that one called "quantum vacuum" (the key field), you originate a multitude of particles and antiparticles solely as a result of continuous interaction between different fields (theory of relativistic Paul Dirac), and that there are virtual particles that are created seemingly out of nowhere (quantum electrodynamics, Richard Feynman).

The reconciliation of all physical phenomena to field fluctuations, described as the minimum energy state possible, with the discoveries of quantum mechanics, have led some scholars to consider the mental structures, or conscious, imbued with a level of material structures he experiences. This is the interpretation of modern physics in which I was inspired to examine patterns of brain functioning that follow, this is the position, for example, Erwin Schrodinger and Fabrizio Coppola, Italian physicist interviewed by me in this regard.
The idea that makes its way from these findings that the mind is in fact not only has the capacity to absorb and process the objective information, but also an active role in creating them.
The emphasis is thus shifted from the domain of modern science of matter and energy to that information, wondering at this point how the subjectivity is the basis of the reality he experiences.
