New Views on the Universe, Bell's Theorem and Jung

How Hippies Saved Physics is an unconventional
approach to quantum theories in physics during the 1970s.
This curious group of physicists in Berkeley, California,
called themselves the "Fundamental Fysiks Group" to 
explore fundamental scientific hypotheses.

This new adventure took the group through quantum theories,
Bell's Theorem and related explorations integrating the science
of physics with Eastern thought and even Uri Geller's demonstrations
of physical phenomena through the prism of the mind. Sarfatti
argued that quantum mechanics, if properly understood, could explain
the psi effects of Uri Geller.

The group is credited with rescuing Bell's Theorem from virtual
oblivion. In essence, quantum objects that once interacted have
a common link after separation. Bell used the word nonlocality to
describe this phenomenon in the universe of matter.  Nudge a
particle here and its partner dances in the distance.

In effect, distance may not be a critical factor in the interaction of particles.
And so, particles must have an identifying characteristic which governs
their behavior quite apart from distance. If this is true, there may be implications 
for instantaneous communication from earth to the edge of the universe.
Previously, scientists believed that quantum encrypted communication cannot
be tapped without destroying the signal.

Clauser published the first experimental results of Bell's theorem
disclosing that the microworld is an entangled nest of nonlocality.
This means that the measurement of Particle A more strongly
correlates to the measurement of Particle B than any local
mechanisms could explain rationally. Greenberger, Horne and Zeilinger
clarified Bell's results incrementally by considering correlated states with
3 or more entangled particles.

Later, Henry Stapp focused on spin correlations in proton-proton
scattering experiments and later worked on the discovery of the
anti-proton which was received well by colleagues globally.
In essence, Henry Stapp provided important insights with regard
to the correlations at the heart of Bell's Theorem.

How Hippies Saved Physics attempts to tie in Bell's Theorem
to psychokinesis, time travel and the Jung world of the unconscious.
Does human consciousness continue even after death?
Who knows for sure ?

Many psychological concepts were originally proposed by Jung
including the Collective Unconscious, the Complex,
and synchronicity. A popular psychometric instrument, the
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), is an outgrowth of
Jung's theories as are other inventions.

How Hippies Saved Physics is an unconventional thrust into
new areas of physics which remained virtually unexplored
previously.

This does sound pretty sweet. Do you think one should have a profound knowledge of physics to like this?

A good knowledge of basic philosophy would be helpful. i.e. Plato, Aristotle even Bertrand Russel In addition, a common sense approach to Newton's laws would be helpful.
