Quantum Logic of the Unconscious and Schizophrenia

Paola Zizzi, Massimo Pregnolato


We introduce a quantum logic for quantum information, which we identify with the quantum logic of the psychodynamic unconscious, amenable to formal characterization through the theoretical framework of Quantum Mind. We claim that this sub rosa quantum logic of the normal mind’s unconscious domain is also the dominant, pathologically emerging logic of schizophrenia. We interpret Quantum Metalanguage as speaking as a quantum control about such a quantum logic. We then suggest that psychotherapists might learn this formal Quantum Metalanguage and apply it in practice in order to communicate more easily with schizophrenic patients.
