Nature’s Quantum Field is Fractal

Startling new research reported in Science Magazine suggests that the quantum field of the universe has a fractal distribution. Fractals are objects that appear increasingly detailed the closer you look like galaxies, mountains, rivers, and the human cardiovascular system, for example. Measurements of a commonly found semiconductor show that electron waves, under certain circumstance, in this case near the metal-insulator boundary, appear as fractals. It was previously thought that the waves would localize in a uniform, regular way. This new research shows that waves are fractally distributed according to a power-law.

The significance of this finding is that supports the idea that many different types of systems, at various scales, are capable of self-organization. This is because systems with fractal distributions often possess chaotic dynamics which in turn support self-generating evolutionary-processes. As discussed in Opening Minds, and elsewhere on this blog, it is highly likely that chaotic, self-organized processes are found in remote viewing phenomena and also the unexplained effects of crop circles.
