Veiled Nonlocality and Quantum Darwinism
Subhash Kak
The disparate fields of quantum mechanics and neuroscience come together in the act of observation. Quantum mechanics is a nonlocal theory but the expectations of our cognitive systems are local. The principle of veiled nonlocality appears to direct not only logic and design of experiments but also the manner in which experimental data is analyzed. The principle preserves the naïve classical view of the universe that is consistent with locally realistic models; it also sees underlying similitude between biological and physical processes. One of these similitudes is that of proliferation of stable states in an interaction between quantum systems in analogy with the survival of the fittest of biological evolution. This paper investigates this idea of quantum Darwinism
