Ontological Potentiae as a Basis for Psychic Capabilities

Quote:Summary: My recent book, Untying the Gordian Knot (UGK; Lexington Books 2020), proposes a new framework for rethinking the fundamental nature of reality; one that takes into account our best current understanding of quantum physics and everyday reality (most often described via classical physics, which is an approximation of quantum physics). Building on past scholarship that highlights a distinction between actuality and possibility within the scope of ontological ‘real’ entities, UGK's Logoi framework hypothesizes two fundamental, mutually implicative orders of reality: a pre-space order (prior to space-time) governed by a distinctive non-Boolean logic of potential relations (potentiae); and a space-time order (subject to space-time metric descriptions) governed by a distinctive Boolean logic of actualizations. To the extent that our minds may at times enable episodes of accessing the order of potentiae (with its wholistic order), such episodes may appear as various forms of psi phenomena.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell
