While working on a Ph. D, in Physics from the U. C. Berkeley I realized that objective science had eliminated the subjective nature of our real existence. My conscious experiences were not included. I worked in aerospace industries, started two companies, and then became research professor at the Naval Postgraduate School. There I developed interacting action flow algorithms to control autonomous aerial vehicles, requiring an expanded quantum theory, which could explain human consciousness.

Biography

Dr. Wolfgang Baer received his Ph.D. in Physics from the UC Berkeley. He started a computer graphics development company, has run a multi million dollar simulation laboratory for the US Army at Ft. Ord California, and held a research professor position at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey California. There he developed programs for unmanned aerial vehicles cognitive vision interpretation. His interest in cognitive brain functions has lead to publications exploring the physics of consciousness, real intelligence, and research applications directed toward the extension of cognitive brain capability beyond its normal limits. He has written peer reviewed articles in the Journal of Consciousness Studies, contributed to books such as A. Periera’s  “The Unity of Mind, Brain and World” , and D. Chopra’s “Brain, Mind, Cosmos” and has conducted verification experiments testing neuronal entanglement and  psycho-physical interactions in quantum experiments. Dr. Baer is recently finished  a treatise on "Conscious  Action Theory"  for Routledge Press that centers on an event oriented extension of quantum theory which fully integrates subjective and objective experiences for macroscopic phenomena.

Disorders of Human Consciousness in the Tri-partite Synapses

Authors: B. Miterauer, Wolfgang Baer
Subjects: Health Psychology, Neuropsychology

Conscious Action Theory extends quantum theory to macroscopic phenomena At the scale of the human “Brain” consciousness is predicted to happen where the processing loop of activity in the Glial network interfaces with the real world input-output processing loop of the Nuronal network. This happens at the Tripartite synapses creating an intersection plenum in biological systems that produces the experience of empty space and the objects it contains.

Introduction to Cognitive Action Theory


Published: Jan 20, 2018 by J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 1251 012008
Authors: Wolfgang Baer
Subjects: Neuropsychology

Incorporating a conscious 1st person observer in scientific theories has been hampered by the lack of physically viable mind/body models. I will present a Cognitive Action Theory (CAT) model of an integrated mind/body system and identify the process of creating conscious experience as the basic building block of reality. This building block is a cyclic process in time, connecting the 1st-person experience with its 3rd-person physical models so that conscious phenomena are possible.

Does the Rose-tinted Glassed Effect in Contemporary Physics Prevent us from Explaining Consciousness?


Published: Nov 01, 2017 by Journal of Consciousness Studies Oll. 24, No 7-8 (2017)
Authors: Wolfgang Baer

Since no one exactly knows how the brain works and because it is the final measuring instrument that collapses the wave function, it is likely that observer characteristics have been falsely attributed to physical reality and our theories of it. These errors may prevent us from understanding consciousness because they mask the actual operations of the psyche. Starting with Velmans' model of consciousness I analyze the role of cognitive models in the development of science.

You are the Universe


Published: Mar 01, 2017 by Journal of Consciousness Studies, Vol. 24 No.3-4 March/April 2017, p223
Authors: Wolfgang Baer

Here I review Deepak Chopra's "You are the Universe" in which I agree with the well crafted arguments that science is not complete because it systematically excludes the mind. However, rather than return to the "all is consciousness" of eastern philosophies I propose to fix science starting with physics. Changing from an object to an event oriented world view is the first simple step in this direction

Mass Charge Interactions for Visualizing the Quantum Field

Subjects: Neuropsychology

Our goal is to integrate the objective and subjective aspects of our personal experience into a single complete theory of reality. To further this endeavor we replace elementary particles with elementary events as the building blocks of an event oriented description of that reality. The simplest event in such a conception is an adaptation of A. Wheeler's primitive explanatory--measurement cycle between internal observations experienced by an observer and their assumed physical causes.

Photons as Observer Transitions in the Event Oriented World View

Subjects: Cognitive Neuroscience, Philosophy

Hugh Everett’s “Relative State” model of the observing element in quantum theory is expanded in the Event Oriented World View and used to show how inertial interactions suggested by “Mach’s Principle” can resolve the wave particle duality. I argue that bullet like Photons are not ontologically real but have been introduced as interpretation aids for experiments based upon an outdated concept of the observing mechanisms in such observers.

Pan-psychic Consciousness in Mass-Charge Interactions


Published: May 01, 2015 by Interalia Magazine, May 2015
Authors: Wolfgang Baer
Subjects: Neuropsychology

When we observe the brain from the outside we cannot find a neuro-biological structure that resembles the phenomenological world in front of ones noses. The theory describing the inside domain of brain, or any, material is Quantum Mechanics, which is counter intuitive, to say the least. A simplified approach suggests that a separation between charge and mass can be used to visualization the interior configuration of material were consciousness is thought to happen.

Force of Consciousness in Mass Charge Interactions


Published: Jan 02, 2014 by Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy, Vol 10, No 1 (2014)
Authors: Wolfgang Baer
Subjects: Neuropsychology, Philosophy

Explains why forces, which hold charge and mass together on the inside - i. e. quantum domain - of material, provide the physical phenomena that explains conscious observations. These internal forces must be added to the external forces of Electricity/Magnetism and Gravity/Inertia in order to produce material in stable forms. Thoughts can then be identified with quantum waves of mass charge fluctuations as long as they are small enough not to destroy the memory space in which the occur.

Chapter 1: The physical Foundation of Consciousness


Published: Jan 01, 2014 by Mind, Brain, and Cosmos, , First Nook Edition:
Authors: Wolfgang Baer edited by Deepak Chopra
Subjects: Neuropsychology, Philosophy

Explains Conscious Action Theory by showing detailed action flow diagrams of between the interior and exterior aspects of matter composed of mass and charge. Provides examples of primitive conscious action cycles and outlines how a universe of interacting events replace our classic concept of interacting particles to achieve a physics in which mental forces have a causal role in determining the motion of classic bodies. Action flow architecture between external sensor and internal memory.

Provides a detailed physical framework for the appearance of conscious. Proposes the physical action flow between charges and masses in the interior of matter as the location of 1st-person observable experiences. Shows quantum theory is an approximation of Conscious Action Theory when displacement between charge and mass becomes small.

Whether or not neuronal signal properties can engage 'non-trivial', i.e. functionally significant, quantum properties, is the subject of an ongoing debate. Here we provide evidence that quantum coherence dynamics can play a functional role in ion conduction mechanism with consequences on the shape and associative character of classical membrane signals.

Introduction to the Physics of Consciousness


Published: Jan 01, 2010 by Journal of Consciousness Studies, 17, No. 3–4, 2010, pp. 165–91
Authors: Wolfgang Baer
Subjects: Cognitive Neuroscience

Proposes a solution to the “Hard Problem” of consciousness and its “Explanatory Gap” by postulating an integrated mind-body activity that explains mental experiences with a model of the activity itself. Such a self referential loop is shown to be both a fundamental physical process and a container of primitive self awareness from which complex experiences can be built.

The feling of One with the Universe

Published: Dec 23, 2019

Shows why the feeling of Oneness is actually a feeling of self awareness. Based on the Conscious Action Theory result that we all live in our own universe in which our own body is the control lever whose motions define control interactions with other conscious universes.
