The Nature of the Relation Between Psychology and Physics: An Argument for a Central Role of Electromagnetism in Thought and Behavior

Alan S. Haas

Abstract


This paper hypothesizes key physical principles underlying human psychology fundamental to thought and social behavior. The model supposes when two individuals are involved with each other they are neurologically and therefore physically coupled or “bonded” with each other in a special way. There is an attractive repulsive connecting force that guides behavior primarily localized in the neurochemistry of the brain. We are attracted to or repelled from objects and stimuli in a fundamentally electromagnetic way, directly correlated with the biochemical/electrochemical storage of charged information driving behavior in the brain. Neurobiological activities, e.g. ion channels, action potentials, and neurotransmitters, are chemical processes in and of themselves; it follows that behavior must be deterministically influenced by them. The model uniquely proposes that physical coupling occurs through space and often in approximately simultaneous time due to the summation of microscopic neuronal events leading to cognition and behavior in the compartmentalized “clockwork” of separate but synchronized brains. This may result in a coherence in thought and behavior through an interdependent physiological “force,” sometimes resulting in what have previously been considered to be unusual coincidental phenomena such as synchronicity or telepathy. Historical origins of the model are traced, and preceding ideas are explained using a new conceptual foundation for synchronistic effects in interactive thought, feeling, and social behavior.
