A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality—Or—Why Are Republicans More Immoral than Democrats?

How will his presidency and the Republican Party change the economic inequality landscape?

This is a general discussion of any aspect of Donald Trump's presidency and the Republican Party's impact upon economic inequality. Keep the discussion civil and dignified while always being mindful of our principles of conduct (aka SITE RULES).

Right, science will lead the way. It will be interesting to see where this goes.
Alfred, that is correct. I think science will solve the mystery of God. As a spiritual person, I do not see this as diminishing the role of God in any respect. After all, God did make science. Quantum entanglement will play a large role in this demystification allowing the glory of God's existence to be better understood and allowing us to get closer to him.

In fact, science is already working on developing systems to mimic our consciousness. The research of Penrose and Hameroff is most interesting. It provides a glimmer of hope we can make a future robot that is both conscious and moral.

While reading your post I also reflected upon Trump's immorality by supporting the KKK and the neo-Nazis. Anyone, including myself, who has ever been the target of prejudice in this manner knows the emotional and psychic pain it causes. This pain in turn separates us from our true selves; it is a self that is merged with the entangled universe and the closer we can stay to this great mother of unity the better we will be. This is why we fight against these people with their immoral acts and beliefs. Perhaps science will some day allow us to remove these prejudices from the world. Religion, for all of the benefits it brings, is still counterbalanced with its own set of folly and certainly has not been able to accomplish this after thousands of years.

So, is quantum entanglement the key to unlocking the relationship between our consciousness and that of the universal consciousness? In other words, is quantum entanglement the mechanism to understanding God? Traditional science has been looking at the interaction between consciousness and the spiritual world. Here are some such mechanisms they have perused with little success:

1) A review of the God Gene and the Spirit Molecule.

A) From Wikipedia

Main article: God gene
Geneticist Dean Hamer has suggested that a particular allele of the VMAT2 gene correlates with spirituality using data from a smoking survey, which included questions intended to measure "self-transcendence". Hamer performed the spirituality study on the side, independently of the National Cancer Institute smoking study. His findings were published in the mass-market book The God Gene: How Faith Is Hard-Wired Into Our Genes.[11][12] Hamer himself notes that VMAT2 plays at most a minor role in influencing spirituality.[13] Furthermore, Hamer's claim that the VMAT2 gene contributes to spirituality is controversial.[13] Hamer's study has not been published in a peer reviewed journal and a reanalysis of the correlation demonstrates that it is not statistically significant.[13][14]

The vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) also known as solute carrier family 18 member 2 (SLC18A2) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC18A2 gene.[5] VMAT2 is an integral membrane protein that transports monoamines???particularly neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and histamine???from cellular cytosol into synaptic vesicles.[6] In nigrostriatal pathway and mesolimbic pathway dopamine-releasing neurons, VMAT2 function is also necessary for the vesicular release of the neurotransmitter GABA.[7]
B) From: Q4LT
Link http://q4lt.com/the-god-gene-vmat2-melatonin
September 20, 2015
The ???God??? Gene Meets the ???Spirit??? Molecule?
Dr. Dean Hamer from the National Cancer Institute published a book in 2005 titled ???The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes???. In this book he identifies a specific gene named ???VMAT2??? as predisposing humans to spiritual/mystical beliefs and experiences.
The Wiki summary of the ???God??? gene rationale is as follows:
???The God gene hypothesis is based on a combination of behavioral genetic, neurobiological and psychological studies. The major arguments of the hypothesis are: (1) spirituality can be quantified by psychometric measurements; (2) the underlying tendency to spirituality is partially heritable; (3) part of this heritability can be attributed to the gene VMAT2; (4) this gene acts by altering monoamine levels; and (5) spiritual individuals are favored by natural selection because they are provided with an innate sense of optimism, the latter producing positive effects at either a physical or psychological level.???
2) The spirit molecule
The theory that the brain produces its own psychedelic compound provokes pop-culture enthusiasm and scientific controversy.
From: Aeon
By Graham St John
Generating controversy, some began to propose that this powerful psychedelic drug could be produced by the human body (and indeed the brain) in sufficient quantities to enable a natural psychedelic experience. The conjecture that we could produce enough of our own, endogenous DMT to induce altered states of consciousness without ingesting any chemical compound generated enthusiasm, and these unproven claims departed the clinic to lead independent lives in popular culture at large.
Speculation on the psychedelic efficacy of the pineal has reawakened interest in the organ. People have championed the capacity of the pineal to arouse previously dormant powers of perception, especially those associated with vision: clairvoyance, seeing auras, and being awakened to information from other dimensions. Appealing to spiritual practitioners, parapsychologists and filmmakers alike, the readouts from Strassman???s study impressed those eager for neurochemical explanations of extrasensory abilities and extraordinary states of consciousness.
For those who wish to go down this psychadelic rabbit hole and learn more about the spirit molecule, I recommend the following, https://aeon.co/essays/could-the-brain- ... c-compound

Also, from Wikipedia:
N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT or N,N-DMT) is a tryptamine molecule which occurs in many plants and animals.[3] It can be consumed as a powerful psychedelic drug and has historically been prepared by various cultures for ritual and healing purposes.[4] Rick Strassman labeled it "the spirit molecule".[5] In most countries, DMT is illegal.
DMT has a relatively short duration of action, intense effects and rapid onset. For that reason, DMT was known as the "businessman's trip" during the 1960s in the United States, as a user could access the full depth of a psychedelic experience in considerably less time than with other substances such as LSD or magic mushrooms.[6] DMT can be inhaled, injected, or orally ingested, and its effects depend on the dose. When inhaled or injected, the effects last a short period of time: about 5 to 15 minutes. Effects can last 3 hours or more when orally ingested along with an MAOI, such as the ayahuasca vine in the traditional ayahuasca brew of many native Amazonian tribes.[7] DMT can produce vivid mystical experiences involving euphoria and dynamic hallucinations of geometric forms, higher intelligences, extraterrestrials, elves, and God.[8]
Given the paltry results of the above science, I am much more inclined to look at the work of Penrose and Hameroff as a means to bridge the gap between the physical and conscious aspects of humans and that of the spiritual dimensions. The research points in the direction of cellular microtubules, acting as mini-quantum computer with a modus operandi of quantum entanglement, being an inter-phase between us and God.

Throughout human history there has always been barriers thought to be impassable. Perhaps the concept that we will never understand God is about to fall.

A NEW THEORY OF QUANTUM ENTANGLED MORALITY—OR—WHY ARE REPUBLICANS MORE IMMORAL THAN DEMOCRATS?

Initially everything in our universe was connected and touching to everything else at the time of the Big Bang approximately 13.8 billion years ago. That is to say, everything in our universe was linked by a physics principle known today as quantum entanglement. From one dense and hot small point came all that we know of our universe.

For those uninitiated to the world of quantum entanglement I recommend the following cartoon introduction. It will allow you to begin wrapping your mind around the fascinating and somewhat strange subject matter physicists have discovered regarding this connectedness. Simply put, ours is an entangled universe where everything touches everything else.

We also know that all cells and biological organisms interact with and respond to the physical world around them including the physically detectable properties of light, magnetism, gravity, barometric pressure, and the like. It is now known that biological organisms also interact with the quantum entanglement found ubiquitously about them. Not only do organisms interact with quantum entanglement, but this relationship is a basic building block of living material in a Darwinian sense. This is evidenced by some of the latest scientific work on how birds use quantum entanglement to follow the earth’s magnetic waves when they migrate. At the heart of the matter we have an example of a form of evolutionary adaptation to entanglement.

We humans are no exception to these biological adaptations of our species to entanglement. Coming from the same primordial cauldron of cells, we too have evolved in response to the quantum entanglement around us as a means of survival. That is to say, we have adapted our species to quantum entanglement in such a way where the most fit survived to pass on our genetic material to our offspring; this fitness came about because of this long standing relationship between our cells and quantum entanglement. This confers to us and our offspring a survivability edge within our niche.

More examples of this intimate relationship come from the field of parapsychology, where psi, the entity labeled as the mechanism of action for psychokinesis and clairvoyance, is now known to operate on quantum entangled physics principles. Author David Kaiser points this out in his book, "How the Hippies Saved Physics." Having a dual Ph.D.s from MIT; one is in history and the other is in physics, he documents a group of physicists based out of Berkeley, California, called the “Fundamental Fysiks Group.” One of their main thrusts of scientific inquiry was to explain the mechanism of action of the paranormal and its link to quantum entanglement.

{Doctor A's note: Elizabeth Rauscher, Ph.D., was one of the group’s initial organizers and guiding force. During my conversations with her in the early 1980's in Berkeley, California, she would playfully refer to the field of parapsychology as S.W.S., translated to mean Strange Weird Sh_t. It was an appropriate and accurate description of the field at that time relative to the minds of most mainstream scientists and individuals. However, that does not negate the scientific research done in the field. Respectfully, I will not engage into discussions as to the validity of the paranormal science on this website. I made up my mind that the research in the field was valid by doing my own research regarding the science decades ago. Furthermore, the the government corroborated my results in secret research trials outside the purview of the established scientific community. Other individuals wishing to engage in such discussions are free to express their views, be they a skeptic or convinced believer of the paranormal scientific literature. }

Another must read book lending support on the subject of the paranormal and its relationship to quantum entanglement comes from Dean Radin, Ph.D., a researcher in the field of parapsychology. His book, "Entangled Minds", recounts the relationship between the paranormal research and quantum entanglement.

Another example of the paranormal and its Darwinian roots comes from an interesting theory linking human psychic capabilities to survive-ability under the topic of precognition. This comes from the theory of “Psi-Mediated Instrumental Response (PMIR)” and its related scientific literature.

Still, other examples of this human to quantum relationship come from the Remote Viewing research.

Given the recent research on birds using quantum entanglement to navigate their migratory routes, studies related to the theory of Psi Mediated Instrumental Response, research literature on remote viewing, and much more, I surmise we humans have a very intimate and dependent relationship with the entangled states found all around us; for that matter, we have always had this type of relation since our first primordial cells developed. I propose this relationship is of such great importance to our survival and sense of being that we have developed evolutionary mechanisms to maintain this relationship. In fact, any attempt to separate us from this relationship by others, in contrast to natural events such as disasters, is deemed “immoral” and is the true basis for our morality standards still today.

As our bodies, and especially our brain's neurons, developed over the course of evolutionary time periods, it did so hand in hand with quantum entanglement; this special relationship of connected touching is the basis of our present day morality. In fact, the degree of one's morality is highly correlated to the maintenance of this entangled relationship.

Finally, as the ultimate expression of this special relationship between a human being and the universe, we have the spiritual recognition of saints. These are individuals who through practices such as prayer and meditation, along with a highly functioning internal psychic structure capable of interacting with quantum entanglement, have a more direct experience of this quantum relationship than do other people.

The individuals who experience the nearly direct entangled connectedness of sainthood, many times describe their state of consciousness mentally as seeing an internal "light." At some point they actually merge their inner consciousness with this light giving them a direct recognition of the oneness of the universe; that is to say, they actually experience the connectedness of the underlying fabric of the universe.

Because saints are so intimately connected to the quantum entanglement around them, they are many times used as a gold standard for morality. Interestingly, saints many times report receiving "grace," or an awakening of their inner spirituality from the universe, granting them deeper access to the entangled realm. I believe in the future this process of receiving grace will also prove to be a quantum entangled process.

This then begs the question as to how we know something is immoral or not. To answer this we need to look at the structure and mechanism by which we have this special relationship with the ubiquitous entanglement about us. In fact, this structure and mechanism is quite well known to most of us, but cannot be measured in physical terms. It is however measured indirectly and is quite prevalent and embedded in the human condition and psyche worldwide. However, I will only briefly acknowledge two such examples: the Chinese acupuncture system with its meridians and the East Indian spiritual yoga system regarding Kundalini with its related structural chakras. Although both systems are “subtle” in nature, meaning we have not yet found a way to directly measure them physically, we can see and experience their interactions with our physical bodies.

First, the Chinese for thousands of years have mapped out this interconnection in an indirect way utilizing the physical manipulation of the body with needles and other physical objects to move the flow of "energy" through the meridians. This is done to alleviate pain or to manipulate the physical body to bring about other benefits for the recipients of such practices.

Secondly, the flow of the spiritual "energy" Kundalini through the subtle structures of the chakras in the East Indian yoga system has also been well mapped out indirectly in vivid detail. The practice of hatha yoga is but yet another way to manipulate the physical body to interact with the subtle "energy" between the human body and its entangled universe.

Both the Chinese acupuncture system and the East Indian yoga system are examples of our intimate evolutionary development with quantum entanglement. The development of our brain's neurons to their present maturation state, as with other systems of our body, have evolutionarily interacted with this ever present quantum entanglement. This interaction has conferred survival advantages not only to our species, but for certain members within our species, enhanced survival advantages. This then provides more advantages to them than it does to others within our species.

An example of this intra-species advantage can be exemplified with remote viewing. This was once explained to me as a mechanism whereby almost all individuals of our species have some capability. But there are those individuals within our species who are much more capable than others. Analogously, most people can “tickle the ivory on a piano”, but here are those individuals with vastly greater capability who can play a concerto. In other words, certain individuals within our species have a much greater remote viewing capability consistently over time than do others. This then confers upon them greater survive-ability in a quantum entangled world.

Compared to humans, reindeer in the northern latitudes are the only mammals capable of seeing ultraviolet light. This is an evolutionary survival advantage allowing them the ability to better see lichens, a food source, and predators, such as wolves, than with just the human eye. This adaption is important for the survival of their species. Humans have also adapted evolutionary to the physical world with the development of a sophisticated brain and the capacity to be self aware. Both species adaptations can be seen within the context of allowing us to survive better within our environmental niche.

However, within the context of the relationship between humans and quantum entanglement, there are physical phenomena that have the ability to not only minimize our entangled evolutionary relationship with the world around us, but to disconnect it all together.

Pain is one such phenomena and its occurrence is quite effective at minimizing the entangled relationship, or at least our awareness of this relationship. The pain can be either physical or psychological pain. Under either circumstance, the human organism’s capability to perceive and be self aware of the entangled relationship, either consciously or unconsciously, becomes diminished. The process of prayer and meditation on the other hand seems to enhance and strengthen the entangled relationship. But ask any individual what their mental state is like if they have a bad toothache and its associated pain while sitting in meditation. Most will answer they begin to focus on the pain rather than their meditational clarity of mind. This is a diminution of the awareness of the entangled phenomena.

Finally, at the extreme end of the spectrum is the taking of a human life; the inevitable result is a lack of neuronal functioning capable of interacting with and perceiving the quantum connectedness about us. This ends the brain’s capability to process and be self aware of the entangled relationship. This form of separation from our connectedness to the universe is deemed to be extremely immoral.

For this reason, the taking of another person’s life is usually at the top of most people's immorality list. Here we have a complete severance of the special entangled relationship correlating to an extremely high level of immorality.

Torture, both physical and mental, are lower on the list than death, but the pain associated with this form of abuse still puts it high on most individual’s ranking of immoral acts.

Although an affair by a married spouse does not in general cause death, the psychic pain associated with it causes this type of action to be high on immorality ranking lists.

Drugs and alcohol, through various and multiple mechanisms, can cause physical and emotional pain, ultimately leading to a decreased awareness of the users connection to the universe. For this reason, history has judged these behaviors as immoral for millennia.

Homosexuality has recently decreased in its ranking as being immoral probably because it has become more widely accepted and the emotional pain has diminished in many people’s minds.

The level of immorality caused by pain is associated with an aggregate and cumulative effect. For example, there are those who would say doctors, dentists, psychiatrists, and other practitioners many times cause pain in their patients. Yet we view this behavior as being moral. But this behavior on the practitioner's part is tempered with an overall goal of eventually reducing the aggregate and cumulative level of pain over time for the patient. This subsequently conforms to our moral standards. However, if no such overall reduction is achieved, then the therapy needs to be stopped or it is deemed immoral.

As an overview, we have a very special and deeply intimate relationship with the quantum entanglement all around us that has developed evolutionary as a survival mechanism to deal with the universe. Certain actions such as pain and death can interfere with this relationship; these actions can diminished the relationship or severe it entirely. In fact, the more this relationship is interfered with by other human beings and subsequently diminished, the more these actions are deemed immoral.

So, why are Republicans more immoral than Democrats?

The answer is actually quite simple when viewed from the perspective of the new quantum entangled morality model. It is because the Republican agenda promotes income and economic inequality more so than does the Democrat’s agenda; the outcomes of these Republican inequalities are strongly associated with more pain and death to a greater number of people. Within the new model, these actions are the ones capable of not only diminishing human awareness of quantum entangled relationship, but as in the case of death, actually disconnecting it. Hence, Republicans exhibit a greater degree of immorality.

Not only do Republicans vote more often for legislation increasing income and economic inequality, they actively pursue this as a policy; although they do not use these words to describe their conduct. A case in point is their insistence on repealing the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. They know full well the increase in the number of individuals projected who will suffer in pain and die as a result of not having access to medical care should the repeal be enacted. Worse yet, all of this will be done in the name of a thinly veiled tax breaks for the rich.

Based upon a commentary in the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday Jun 20, 2017, regarding a story in the Washinton Post by David Himmelstein, Steffie Woolhandler on Jan 23, 2017, titled "Repealing Obamacare will kill more than 43,000 people a year ...,"we find the following excerpts helpful at putting the level of pain and death into perspective by the Republican proposed actions.
The story is in the data: The biggest and most definitive study of what happens to death rates when Medicaid coverage is expanded, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that for every 455 people who gained coverage across ...
Democrats on the other hand actively promote their party’s supports for reducing economic and income inequality. That is to say, they cause less pain and death; this is a more moral agenda.

To say the Republicans have "lost their moral compass" is now more appropriate than ever. Like birds using an internal compass to migrate based upon the entangled relationship between electron spins in their eyes with the earth’s magnetic field, we humans have also developed evolutionary means by which we stay connected to the universe. This quantum entangled connectedness is the basis of what is moral or immoral for all humanity. The Republicans, through the elevated levels of pain and death brought on by their legislative agendas of inequality, have clearly lost sight of this internal process; or perhaps this moral mechanism was never fully developed in their brain structure to begin with. In either case, theirs is a broken compass as they continue drift, lost in a sea of immorality.

Post by Jessica » Fri Jun 01, 2018 5:16 pm

I found some interesting information about using science as a basis of morality. But more on this later.

Recently I read an interesting article with the title, Can Morality Be Engineered In Artificial General Intelligence Systems? in the magazine Analytics India by Abhijeet Katte published May 10th, 2018. https://analyticsindiamag.com/can-moral ... e-systems/

The author presents some of the hazards of this fledgling field when he says,
Which brings us to the question – can morality be engineered in AGI system through design and code? Can moral rules be programmed into AGI systems? According to Goertzel, “AGI is a highly complex, highly dynamic self-organizing system”. Subsequently, this program can even end up deleting the moral rules one programmed in, or it may reinterpret the terms.
The article then goes on to addresses some of the core questions addressed in AGI Research which are listed below:
Experts predict that a technological singularity caused by an AGI may lead to existential risks as well as risks of substantial suffering for the human race. Some clusters of problems appear in multiple research agendas and can be used as design guides for development of AGI:

Value specification: How do we get an AGI to work towards the right goals?

Reliability: How can we make an agent that keeps pursuing the goals we have designed it with?

Corrigibility: If we get something wrong in the design or construction of an agent, will the agent cooperate in us trying to fix it?

Security: How to design AGIs that are robust to adversaries and adversarial environments?

Safe learning: AGIs should avoid making fatal mistakes during the learning phase.

Intelligibility: How can we build agent’s whose decisions we can understand?

Societal consequences: AGI will have substantial legal, economic, political, and military consequences. How should we manage the societal consequences?
To augment and add to the mix above, The Singularity Hub published "4 New Human Rights for When Our Brains Are Hooked Up to Computers" By Edd Gent -May 01, 2017 https://singularityhub.com/2017/05/01/4 ... 1d1iyd3g90
The human-machine mind meld is just around the corner if you believe the buzz coming out of Silicon Valley these days. But neuroethicists worry the technology poses a threat to the last bastion of privacy, our innermost thoughts, and have suggested tweaks to our fundamental human rights to protect that privacy.
“While the body can easily be subject to domination and control by others, our mind, along with our thoughts, beliefs and convictions, are to a large extent beyond external constraint,” they write. “Yet, with advances in neural engineering, brain imaging and pervasive neurotechnology, the mind might no longer be such an unassailable fortress.”
1. The Right to Cognitive Liberty

The first proposed new right is the right to “Cognitive Liberty,” which states that people have the right to use emerging neurotechnology to modify their mental activity. But it also protects the right to refuse to use it in situations such as an employer requiring workers to take advantage of devices that would improve their performance.

2. The Right to Mental Privacy

Second on the list is the right to “Mental Privacy,” which would protect people from third parties accessing data about their mental activity collected by a neurotechnology device without their consent.

The impulse for this protection is obvious; tech giants are already hoovering up huge amounts of our behavioral data in their efforts to divine our innermost desires and sell us stuff. Brain data could let them bypass this guesswork and precisely tailor our online experiences in pursuit of their goals.

The authors debate whether this right should be absolute or relative, though. In certain situations, allowing the state to access the thoughts of criminals and terrorists could have obvious benefits for society. But the researchers suggest this could erode the already well-established right not to incriminate oneself, which is widely recognized across the democratic world and enshrined in the Fifth Amendment.

3. The Right to Mental Integrity

The last two rights are intertwined and deal with the emerging ability to not just record mental activity, but directly influence it. The right to “Mental Integrity” effectively protects against people hacking brain implants to hijack or interfere with their mental processes or erase memories.

4. The Right to Psychological Continuity

The right to “Psychological Continuity” deals with the vaguer notion of attempts to alter someone’s personality or identity, either through similar brain hacking approaches or more subtle ones like neuromarketing, which can involve companies using insights from neuroscience to try and alter unconscious behavior and attitudes in consumers.
These two articles prodded me to go to quora.com and look up "What are morals based upon?" https://www.quora.com/What-are-morals-based-upon

There was a whole string of answers but the one that caught my attention was the very last one. This is because it reminded me about Doctor A's theory of morality based upon pain altering our conscious connection with the universal entangled reality we live in,

Mikko Pöntinen, Physics student, freediver
Answered Feb 25, 2015
Morals are, or at least should be, based on the suffering and well-being of conscious creatures. I recommend Sam Harris's book The Moral Landscape.

I then took his advice and looked up the book by Sam Harris he recommended and found in Wikipedia,
The Moral Landscape
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values
Author Sam Harris
Published 2010 (Free Press)

The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values is a book by Sam Harris published in 2010. In it, he promotes a science of morality and argues that many thinkers have long confused the relationship between morality, facts, and science. He aims to carve a third path between secularists who say morality is subjective (e.g. moral relativists), and religionists who say that morality is given by God and scripture. Harris contends that the only moral framework worth talking about is one where "morally good" things pertain to increases in the "well-being of conscious creatures".
Again, this very much ties in with how I interpreted Doctor A's post about morality being based upon the science of quantum entanglement. This is especially true as it relates to pain and its dis-associative effects regarding one's conscious contact with the entangled universe. I think that pain decreases the "well-being of conscious creatures" as Harris uses for his basis of morality. Certainly, within my own personal experience, pain has been a major factor regarding my well-being and hence, my own conscious contact with the universe. My experience includes the fact that it is difficult to hold a constant contact with a higher power when I am in pain, and this makes me suffer because the pain brings me back to thoughts of the pain itself. Seen in another light, I am less loving to others when I am in pain.

As for the science relating pain to consciousness and quantum entanglement, there is the new and growing field exploring quantum entanglement in biological systems. From other posts on this website regarding the current research, I learned how birds navigate through an entangled mechanism and how photosynthesis works in our entangled world. I am sure more will be revealed.

Although I have not read the book, I would hope someone who has read it would chime in on the matter.

Recently I read an interesting article with the title, Can Morality Be Engineered In Artificial General Intelligence Systems? in the magazine Analytics India by Abhijeet Katte published May 10th, 2018. https://analyticsindiamag.com/can-moral ... e-systems/

The author presents some of the hazards of this fledgling field when he says,
Which brings us to the question – can morality be engineered in AGI system through design and code? Can moral rules be programmed into AGI systems? According to Goertzel, “AGI is a highly complex, highly dynamic self-organizing system...
The article then goes on to addresses some of the core questions addressed in AGI Research which are listed below:
Experts predict that a technological singularity caused by an AGI may lead to existential risks as well as risks of substantial suffering for the human race. Some clusters of problems appear in multiple research agendas and can be used as d...

These two articles prodded me to go to quora.com and look up "What are morals based upon?" https://www.quora.com/What-are-morals-based-upon

There was a whole string of answers but the one that caught my attention was the very last one. This is because it reminded me about Doctor A's theory of morality based upon pain altering our conscious connection with the universal entangled reality we live in,

Morals are, or at least should be, based on the suffering and well-being of conscious creatures. I recommend Sam Harris's book The Moral Landscape.

I then took his advice and looked up the book by Sam Harris he recommended and found in Wikipedia,

Again, this very much ties in with how I interpreted Doctor A's post about morality being based upon the science of quantum entanglement. This is especially true as it relates to pain and its dis-associative effects regarding one's conscious contact with the entangled universe. I think that pain decreases the "well-being of conscious creatures" as Harris uses for his basis of morality. Certainly, within my own personal experience, pain has been a major factor regarding my well-being and hence, my own conscious contact with the universe. My experience includes the fact that it is difficult to hold a constant contact with a higher power when I am in pain, and this makes me suffer because the pain brings me back to thoughts of the pain itself. Seen in another light, I am less loving to others when I am in pain.

As for the science relating pain to consciousness and quantum entanglement, there is the new and growing field exploring quantum entanglement in biological systems. From other posts on this website regarding the current research, I learned how birds navigate through an entangled mechanism and how photosynthesis works in our entangled world. I am sure more will be revealed.

Although I have not read the book, I would hope someone who has read it would chime in on the matter.

Re: A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality???Or???Why Are Republicans More Immoral than Democrats?

Harris contends that the only moral framework worth talking about is one where "morally good" things pertain to increases in the "well-being of conscious creatures".
I interpret this quote by Sam Harris to include my cat and dog. Should anyone harm them and reduce their conscious well -being, not only would they be directly wounded morally, but so would I due to the psychic pain this would cause me. Furthermore I can see how the Republican agenda regarding the environment morally harms so many sentient creatures through climate change and their proclivity for wars. No wonder we abhor their feckless political policies that cause so much pain upon the land. Instead of being good shepherds of the world's other creatures, their moral bankruptcy is continually on display.
