I am interested in the fundamental study of information, turbulence, scale and transformability, particularly related to how quantum algorithms such as quantum annealing can be harnessed to generate intelligent neural networks for universal deep learning systems. My research crosses into neurological sciences and consciousness studies, particularly the study and development of macromolecular simulations to emulate brain like memory storage and retrieval in finite simulated quantum systems.

Scale-invariant Symmetry Breaking of a Musical Master-code from a 5-D Superfluid Sub-Quantum Space Is Instrumental in the Fabric of Reality, Life Conditions and Cosmic Consciousness
Neuroquantology
October 13, 2021
Meta-analysis of current biomedical and biophysical literature revealed the presence of a fractal pattern of discrete EMF frequency bands, in a wide range of animate and non-animate systems, framed as the Generalized Music (GM)-scale biophysical principle and also applied by us to study cognitive brain function as well as quantum mechanical aspects of first life. In this respect, it is proposed that nature is guided by a resonating set of quantum vacuum fluctuations of an all-pervading zero-point energy (ZPE)-field. It was shown that the toroidal GM-code can accommodate 4 spatial dimensions, in line with the Kaluza Klein concept as a feature of the Sub-Quatum SFQS, conceived as a homogenous 5-D space-time manifold. The related photon/phonon and soliton fluxes can be modelled by toroidal geometry as also obtained from Perelmann-Ricci-Flow mappings, processes that enable crucial wave damping and tone separation. The GM-scale exhibits a self-similar fractal) wave pattern that gives rise to a series of more than 500 EMF frequencies from the Hz to the GHz ranges, thereby exhibiting a field-like character. In this paper we report on a series of 46 experimentally determined ZPE-frequencies, from 15 separate studies, that fit the GM-scale eigenvalues closely. The central message of these quantum wave studies implies a cosmic connectivity operating in a primordial context, possibly related to known bounce models of our universe, that is likely also mirrored in life processes, including the human brain. It is postulated that the generation of life in the cosmos resulted from a symmetry breaking from the homogenous 5-D manifold that contains condensed boson type of quantum wave information and is instrumental in past/future transactional information processing

Biophysics of Consciousness: A Scale-Invariant Acoustic Information Code of a Superfluid Quantum Space Guides the Mental Attribute of the Universe
Springer
October 30, 2020
In this chapter, we postulate an integral concept of information processing in the universe, on the basis of a new biophysical principle, coined the generalized music (GM)-scale of EMF frequencies. Meta-analyses of current biomedical literature revealed the presence of a distinct pattern of discrete EMF frequency bands in a wide range of animate and non-animate systems. The underlying algorithm of harmonic solitonic waves provided a novel conceptual interface between living and non-living systems being of relevance for the areas of brain research as well as biological evolution. We hold that nature is guided by resonating quantum entities related to quantum vacuum fluctuations of an imminent zero-point energy (ZPE) field, also regarded as a superfluid quantum space (SQS). Since the whole human organism, including the brain is embedded in this dynamic energy field, a pilot wave guided supervenience of brain function is conceived. Conversely, the brain may write discrete informational states into the ZPE field as individual memory traces. Both information fluxes may be related to a holofractal memory workspace, associated with, but not reducible to the brain, that operates as a scale-invariant mental attribute of reality. Our concept, therefore, addresses the earlier postulated “hard problem” in consciousness studies.

Consciousness in the Universe is Tuned by a Musical Master Code, Part 2: The Hard Problem in Consciousness Studies Revisited
Quantum Biosystems | 2020 | Vol 11
May 20, 2020
Part 2 of this review article provides a novel conceptual bridge between living and non-living systems, being of relevance for the areas of biophysics, brain research, as well as for mechanisms of biological evolution. As to the latter aspect, the potential role of phyllosilicates (clay materials) in the generation of a primordial biofield is treated and seen as instrumental in a partially guided creation of first life. We hold, in general, that nature is guided by a discrete pattern of harmonic solitonic waves, likely originating from quantum vacuum fluctuations derived from an immanent zero-point energy (ZPE)/superfluid quantum space. Since the whole human organism, including brain is embedded in this dynamic energy field, a comprehensive model for human (self)-consciousness could be conceived. Evidence is presented for a pilot wave guided supervenience of brain function that may arise from a holofractal memory workspace, associated with, but not reducible to the brain, that operates as a scale-invariant mental attribute of reality. This field-receptive, workspace integrates past and (anticipated) future events and may explain overall ultra-rapid brain responses, as well as the origin of qualia as proposed in the so called hard problem of consciousness studies.

What Does This Mean for Evolution?
Springer
February 20, 2020
In 2010, the evolutionary biologist, mathematician, and geneticist, Richard Lewontin noted that the standard narrative of evolution by natural selection does not explain the actual forms of life that have evolved. He further contended that there is an immense amount of biology that is missing from neo-Darwinism. Other scientists also agree (Pigliucci 2007; Baluška 2009; Witzany 2010; Shapiro 2011; Torday 2015a, b; Miller 2016b, 2017; Miller and Torday 2018). Therefore, it can be defended that the central tenets of the modern synthesis should be questioned. Of these areas of inquiry, the most pertinent is the exact role and limits of natural selection in any evolutionary process. If selection has primacy in evolutionary development, does it proceed according to strict gene frequencies? Is it propelled by random genetic mutations? Is Crick’s central dogma that asserts a unilateral direction of the flow of biological information from DNA to RNA still applicable in the twenty-first century? Certainly, there is no requirement that the correct answers have to be any exact antipode of prior beliefs. Nor must any contradictions be absolute. Therefore, even a substantial reformulation of evolutionary development need not be an unyielding negation of the past. Instead, it is tasked to incorporate the weighty thoughts of prior generations of scientists and direct them toward a fuller understanding of this complicated issue.

Holobionts
Springer
February 14, 2020
In previous chapters, a differing point of initiation for evolutionary development has been introduced through concepts of information management and cell–cell communication. It has been emphasized that evolution proceeds quite differently than it had been supposed. Instead of random genetic variations based on intermittent replication errors, evolution can now be understood as a continuous self-referential process of self-modification in response to environmental stresses through natural cellular engineering and niche construction. Yet, to further comprehend how the modern synthesis must be altered, an accurate perception of the endpoint of all evolutionary processes must be explained. It is now known that all multicellular macro-organisms are holobionts. Taking ourselves as an example, it is currently estimated that there are many trillions of microbes—bacteria, viruses, fungi, and others—that are in us and on us (Sender et al. 2016). They outnumber our eukaryotic cells by a factor estimated by some to be up to 10 to 1 or more (Turnbaugh et al. 2007). When the total genetic complement of this microbial fraction is considered, the full genetic cohort of the associated microbiome outnumbers our innate genetic complement by perhaps as much as 100 to 1 (Bäckhed et al. 2005).

Cognition and the Living Condition
Springer
February 14, 2020
Our contemporary era permits a harnessing of fresh contemporary resources to evolutionary biology from the emerging fields of metagenomics (the direct study of genetic material from environmental samples), epigenomics (the complete range of epigenetic factors that influence gene expression), and hologenomics (the complete genetic complement of an organism, including its microbial fraction). None of these fields mattered or were even thought to exist within the twentieth century. With the productive application of critical research from these disciplines, evolutionary biology can now be explored from a vantage that was unavailable to Darwin and the myriad others that followed in the ensuing decades.

Reconciling Physics and Biology
Springer
February 14, 2020
For his entire life, Einstein retained a steadfast commitment to determinism. He believed that there is an objective reality that can be observed and accurately measured. If there was sufficient understanding and measuring capacity, any of the apparent indeterminacies of quantum mechanics would eventually be shown to be deterministic (Landsman 2009). His contemporary, the brilliant astronomer, mathematician, and physicist, Arthur Eddington, supposed differently. He had concluded that beyond any conceivable measuring, there is both more and less to any physical object. He sensed that the actual natural state always remains hidden within indeterminate variables (Durham 2003). Certainly, quantum theory points toward indeterminism, as it is underpinned by Heisenberg Uncertainty (the exact position and the exact speed of an object cannot be known simultaneously) and the Born Rule (an essential law within quantum mechanics giving the probability that a measurement on a quantum system will yield a given result) (Landsman 2009). Based on these within any quantum system, the outcome of any event is probabilistic and uncertain. When the Nobel Prize winners, Prigogine and Monod, attempted to scale these principles to biological systems, they argued for indeterminism (Prigogine and Stengers 1997; Merlin 2015). It is proposed that when biology is properly considered in the context of informational ambiguity and cell–cell communication across levels, there can be a productive unification of biology and quantum physics.

Darwin, the Modern Synthesis, and a New Biology
Springer
February 14, 2020
Any attempt to provide a coherent alternative evolutionary narrative to standard Darwinian tenets should offer a brief overview of the progression of scholarly thought about evolutionary mechanisms. All narratives focus on Charles Darwin's seminal “On the Origin of Species” (Darwin 1859). When Darwin offered that influential work in 1859, he was unaware of the existence of genes. He was a naturalist with a gift for scrupulous observation. Based upon his studies, he proposed the major dictums that have since guided evolutionary thoughts. He offered two linked primary arguments. Evolution proceeded by a process of natural selection through the gradual modification of inherited variations. Notably, the concept of natural selection was not original to Darwin. In 1831, a Scottish horticulturalist, Patrick Matthew had proposed a theory of natural selection, and Darwin was acquainted with his work (Rampino 2010). Another English naturalist and explorer, Alfred Russel Wallace was in communication with Darwin prior to his publication of On the Origin of Species.

This is particularly true when the mechanisms of development are identified as the source of phylogenetic changes in physiologic traits such as the lung, kidney, skin, and bone (Torday and Rehan 2012, 2017).

Non-genic Means of Information Reception and Exchange
Springer
February 14, 2020
Aside from the transfer of genetic material and a large array of bioactive molecules by endocytosis and other cellular mechanisms, there are many additional sources of information exchange among cells. The primary cilia are one such example. These slender projections on microbes and cells are an essential element for both their communication processes and mobility (Wheatley et al. 1996). They also serve an important sensory function that is part of the cell’s analysis of mechanical and chemical signals, which is a consequential part of their information space. As such, they are part of what is termed the “senome” of the cell. The “senome” represents the summation of all the sensory inputs of the cell derived through the use of all of its sensory apparatus and tools (Baluška and Miller 2018). This is the means by which the cognitive cell can assess its environment as it attempts to maintain homeostatic balance. Even bacteria show a high degree of sensory complexity linked to sensorimotor circuits that activate at the plasma membrane and ramify throughout the cell (Lyon 2015).

Consciousness in the Universe is Scale Invariant and Implies an Event Horizon of the Human Brain
NeuroQuantology
September 20, 2017
Our brain is not a "stand alone" information processing organ: it acts as a central part of our integral nervous system with recurrent information exchange with the entire organism and the cosmos. In this study, the brain is conceived to be embedded in a holographic structured field that interacts with resonant sensitive structures in the various cell types in our body. In order to explain earlier reported ultra-rapid brain responses and effective operation of the meta-stable neural system, a field-receptive mental workspace is proposed to be communicating with the brain. Our integral nervous system is seen as a dedicated neural transmission and multi-cavity network that, in a non-dual manner, interacts with the proposed supervening meta-cognitive domain. Among others, it is integrating discrete patterns of eigen-frequencies of photonic/solitonic waves, thereby continuously updating a time-symmetric global memory space of the individual. Its toroidal organization allows the coupling of gravitational, dark energy, zero-point energy field (ZPE) as well as earth magnetic fields energies and transmits wave information into brain tissue, that thereby is instrumental in high speed conscious and subconscious information processing. We propose that the supposed field-receptive workspace, in a mutual interaction with the whole nervous system, generates self-consciousness and is conceived as operating from a 4 th spatial dimension (hyper-sphere). Its functional structure is adequately defined by the geometry of the torus, that is envisioned as a basic unit (operator) of space-time. The latter is instrumental in collecting the pattern of discrete soliton frequencies that provided an algorithm for coherent life processes, as earlier identified by us.

Processes of Science and Art, Modeled by Toroidal Flux of Information
Researchgate
March 15, 2017
Abstract Processes of Science and Art, Modeled by Toroidal Flux of Information Dirk K.F. Meijer, PhD An attempt is made to model the structure of science and art discovery processes, in the light of currently defined ideas on the societal flow of knowledge and conservation of information, using the versatile physical concept of toroidal geometry. This should be seen as a heuristic model that is open for further development and evolution. The scientific process, has been often described as a iterative and/or recurrent process. Current models, explain the generation of new knowledge on the basis of a number of sequential steps (activities) operating in a circular mode. This model intrinsically assumes this process to be congruent for all individual scientific efforts. Yet, such a model is inadequate to fully describe the whole integral process of scientific discovery as an ongoing interactive process, performed in a cumulative fashion. This implies that any new cycle starts from a different perspective or, optimistically seen, is initiated from a higher level. It seems appropriate for this reason to disregard the cyclic model and replace it by a spiral modality that takes into account the ongoing rise of scientific perspective. Also, any model that attempts to picture the scientific process, should include potential interactions of concepts or hypotheses, in the sense that concurrently developed concepts may (mutually) influence each other and even may be mixed or superposed or alternatively may lead to concept extinction. Science and art progression, both seen as an individual effort and a historically-based flow of events, is inherently a non-linear or even sometimes a chaotic process, where even relatively small changes can lead to major scientific t​r​a​n​s​f​o​r​m​a​t​i​o​n​

Phonon Guided Biology: Architecture of Life and Conscious Perception Are Mediated by Toroidal Coupling of Phonon, Photon and Electron Information Fluxes at Discrete Eigenfrequencies
NeuroQuantology
December 01, 2016
Recently, a novel biological principle, revealing specific electromagnetic (EM) radiation frequencies that sustain life, was presented by us on the basis of an evaluation of 175 biological articles concerning beneficial effects of electromagnetic waves on the state of living cells. This concept was also based on a very similar range of frequencies emitted by a clay-mineral catalyst of RNA synthesis that may have been instrumental in the evolutionary initiation of first life, and therefore was tentatively designated as “Algorithm of Life”. The particular spectrum of frequency bands indicate that nature seems to employ discrete eigenfrequencies or standing waves that match precisely with an acoustic scale, with frequency ratios of 1:2, and closely approximated by 2:3, 3:4, 3:5, 4:5 and higher partials, allowing the discrete frequencies to be expressed in scalars. Our further studies clearly indicate now that this “life algorithm” pattern matches very well with the mathematical calculations of W. Ritz (1909) to compute eigenfrequencies of the sound induced geometric patterns. These have been earlier demonstrated through membrane vibration experiments of E. Chladni (1787), as well as several follow up studies from 1970-2013. Our findings, therefore, touch upon the science of acoustics, also since we show that the discrete frequencies could be modeled by music torus geometry. We postulate that the spectrum of EM frequencies detected, exhibit a quantum ordering effect on life cells on the basis of induction of geometric wave patterns. These constitute phonon/photon and electron wave energies, and quantum oscillations at far-infrared frequencies, that are communicated through toroidal constructive interference into scalar wave information.

Quantum Wave Information of Life Revealed: An Algorithm for Electromagnetic Frequencies that Create Stability of Biological Order, With Implications for Brain Function and Consciousness
NeuroQuantology
January 20, 2016
We propose a hypothesis of a mathematical algorithm for coherent quantum frequencies, that may create stability of biological order. The concept is based on an extensive literature survey, comprising 175 articles from 1950 to 2015, dealing with effects of electromagnetic radiation on in vitro and in vivo life systems, indicating that typical discrete coherent frequencies of electromagnetic waves are able to stabilize cells, whereas others cause a clear destabilization. We find support for the hypothesis of H. Fröhlich, that a driven set of oscillators condenses in a broad energy range, may activate a vibrational mode in life organisms at room temperature. Taking into account the life sustaining frequencies, as extracted from literature, an algorithm of coherent frequencies of standing waves for the stability of biological order was inferred. Interestingly, we found that the origin of the particular biological algorithm can be mathematically approached by a selected “tempered Pythagorean” reference acoustic scale. The algorithm expresses one-dimensional wave equations known for vibrating strings. The origin of the biological algorithm was condensed in a mathematical expression, in which all frequencies have ratios of 1:2 and closely approach ratios of 2:3. This inferred algorithm was subsequently verified with regard to various frequencies of electromagnetic waves, as applied in the above-mentioned independent biological studies. It was also matched with a range of 23 different measured quantum resonances emitted by a selected inorganic silicate mineral, that is able to catalyze the oligomerization of RNA.

Classical versus Quantum determinism and Free Will for beginners

January 03, 2016
Classical determinism is the notion that some action or another has a predictable and calculable outcome. For example: dropping a ball.

Thermodynamics and Newtonian physics has these bits covered pretty well. So where does quantum fit into this? Quantum mechanics studies small stuff, not the ball itself but the components of the atoms that the ball is made from. Here at the scale, things get very difficult to measure and predict. I get asked frequently to explain the problem, and more so to explain how classical determinism can be derived from apparent quantum randomness. To illustrate the point I have devised a simple experiment you can do at home (or in your head). So here goes....

Re-constructing memory using quantized electronic music and a ‘Toridion byte’ quantum algorithm: Creating images using zero logic quantum probabilistic neural networks (ZLQNN)
Intellect
December 20, 2016
Quantum theory applied to data analytics using a quantum computer has become the leading research endeavor to find a way to store and retrieve data using the nano-sized world of molecular structures. The ability to manipulate and change the positioning of magnetic fields in the sub atomic realms through resonant frequencies has provided new insights into how a probabilistic and indeterminate field of energy (quantum) can be utilized for storing and retrieving data. Much of the theorization that is applied to quantum computer development relies on a conceptual framework largely based on metaphors to understand the behavior of sub-atomic elements within a quantum field (Brookes, 2014). One aspect of the quantum field is the entanglement of elements whereby behaviors of two distinct elements respond to change independent of their location. The Toridion quantum algorithm was used to scatter pre-recorded sound into frequency amplitudes within a simulated quantum computer environment. The sounds were composed by using quantum cognitive meta models for the creation of electronic music compositions. The Toridion Encoder creates highly compressed ‘glyphs' of the sounds whilst simultaneously creating a probabilistic quantum neural network within the cyclic mental workspace of the computer. By using sensory experiences as non deterministic search functions, it is explored how a quantum machine learning algorithm is able to unlock images, sounds, text or other media that is compressed into these small data packets called a “Toridion byte”. Because of the super positioning effect of a quantized state, in which a state can be in several locations at once, a reduction in size of the stored data is possible by using this compression technique. The compression of the data is further reduced until all that is left is a single packet of data within the quantum neural network. Images of prior events that are compressed and stored in a simulated quantum computer environment are then retrieved using encoded elements from the pre-recorded sound frequencies. This paper will explain how using a quantum compositional framework in composing electronic music orchestrations can aid in retrieving

Quantum Inspired Machine Learning for Ethereum Cryptocurrency 2020 Forward Prediction with Results
Research Gate
September 24, 2020
In this paper we present empirical results for 1 hour future prediction of the Ethereum cryptocurrency using quantum inspired machine learning [QML] for the month of January 2020. The results demonstrate accuracy that exceeds the 'magic win/loss' ratio of 54%. There is a generally held view that financial markets behave in a mostly unpredictable way[1]. Indeed observing the number of up and down events across the majority of currency pairs such as USD/GBP will reveal a largely even 50/50 distribution of events, lending weight to the random nature argument. In this study, we used a previously trained model of the Ethereum cryptocurrency[2] to forward test the models ability to confidently identify market patters with strongly probable outcomes 1 hour in the future. The model was tested for the month of January 2020 on a trained model for September 2017 to December 2019. Returning a 55-70% prediction accuracy at confidence levels >= 63%, the results demonstrate that cryptocurrency signal generation is a good candidate for quantum inspired machine learning powered predictive analytics.

Toridion Quantum Inspired Machine Learning for Ethereum Cryptocurrency Prediction with Results
Research Gate
September 22, 2020
There is a generally held view that financial markets behave in a mostly unpredictable way[1]. Indeed observing the number of up and down events across the majority of currency pairs such as USD/GBP will reveal a largely even 50/50 distribution of events, lending weight to the random nature argument. In this study, we applied quantum inspired machine learning to 3 years of forex and cryptocurrency market data in an attempt to build a statistically strong model for the short term forecasting of the Ethereum cryptocurrency. The machine learning model was simultaneously trained on 8 fiat currency pairs and 3 cryptocurrency pairs. Subsequent back testing of the model for various levels of confidence indicated that the model was able to predict 1 hour in the future with better than 75% accuracy when the requested confidence level was > 63%. At higher confidence levels the accuracy increased until reaching 100% accuracy at 91% confidence. The results indicate that cryptocurrency signal generation is a good candidate for quantum inspired machine learning powered predictive analytics.

Computational Advantages of Probabilistic Quantum Neural Networks in 'Real World' Applications
Toridion
April 20, 2017
The achievement of a useful General Purpose Quantum Neural Network [QNN] promises the delivery of an important milestone on the journey toward harnessing the effective power of quantum computing when applied to data intensive application such as big data analytics. Here, we demonstrate how Toridion Quantum Neural Networks [TQNN] can deliver significant computational performance advantages over classical computers in solving specific classes of problems with intractable “time to solution discovery” time complexities, e.g :- Toridion performs with a O(n) time complexity for a “combination of sets” matching problem such as reordering a finite 2 dimensional bitmap of n = (xy) bits with m set bits (m) and k unset bits (k) and matching this to a known pre-configuration. This performance is in stark contrast to a comparable classical memory remap and compare algorithm which devolves into near exponential time O(e) as the size and/or entropy of the bitmap set increases. Whilst we recognise that there exists classical memory sort and compare algorithms that can achieve similar results as the TQNN (in some cases), attention is drawn to the fact that the example tests are constructed to show that TQNN “learns the optimal solution” – as opposed to being “programmed” with it. It is also able to learn more than one optimal solution to more than one problem for the same dataset. This distinction is vitally important as it highlights the ability of the TQNN memory system to concurrently learn the best solution to several classes of intractable problems. This capability sets it apart as a true General Purpose Quantum Neural Network capable of enhancing the flow and processing of data at scale in real world commercial applications

The Third State: Toward a Quantum Information Theory of Consciousness
NeuroQuantology
December 15, 2015
The question of how our perceived reality is constructed and subsequently how our mind has evolved such that we are able to both perceive and subsequently alter our own causality or even our own evolution within this reality has been a long running open question. Referred to by David Chalmers[1] as “The Hard Problem”, there have been many theoretical interpretations on the nature of causal self observance – hereafter referred to as 'consciousness'. The current paper introduces the reader to the indeterminable operator - “The Third State”. The Third State is a term used to describe space itself in relation to the position of all things. As the paper shall show, The Third State is a required omnipresent and universal operator in the otherwise binary realm of data → information. The Third State augments the accepted binary operators to produce the required 'tristate' conditions that facilitates the required probabilistic nature of the conscious manifestation. Secondly the Unity Magnitude [Um] scale, which facilitates the bounding of quantum probabilistic memory in a finite model. The paper further introduces the reader to a model and experimental theory that suggests all things we perceive as physical reality can be fabricated from primitive components of data, bits – matter / antimatter / something or nothing. That facilitated by the Third State, our immediate present reality as we experience it and theretofore consciousness is a simultaneous product of the current physical configuration of the frequency stable systems of which we are comprised*, interpreted past reality, self predicted future provided by cyclic frequency stable systems and the immediate physical and sensory state including recursive imagination systems generated by the output of these perturbed frequency stable systems in the cyclic feedback process - ultimately perturbed by, but as one unified with the stochastic processes in relation to the quantum cosmological domain.
