On the Unification of Mind and Matter

Brian J. Flanagan

Abstract


The “hard problem” is considered vis-à-vis Gödel’s work on formal systems, tensor network theory, the vector character of sensory qualities, the symmetries and phase relations of those qualities and Heisenberg’s matrix formulation of quantum theory. An identity is proposed between the secondary properties of perception and (1) the hidden variables of quantum theory; (2) the internal spaces of gauge theory; and (3) the additional dimensions of M-theory.

Keywords
