On Non-locality VI: Immediacy & Hierarchies

Vernon M. Neppe, Edward R. Close


In this sixth and final article, we examine the applications of non-locality in physics to consciousness research, and use an example of the framework approach. We then apply the principles of non-locality recognizing how what we’re calling “dimensional immediacy still applies”, yet there may be limitations to Herbert’s excellent “unmediated” and “unmitigated” principles for non-locality. We explain Herbert’s “instantaneous connectivity” of objects, substances or events with our dimensional concept of “immediacy”. We then recognize the limitations of the term “non-locality” and suggest relative distinctions instead: This may assist in our qualitative phenomenological descriptions and recognition of the hierarchically dissimilar.
