43 Cosmos and Consciousness N2 C et L x,y,z FIG. 7. V. CONCLUSIONS Desperate situations demand desperate remedies. Eberhard6 sees only four possible resolutions of Einstein's paradox. (1) To calculate (which is certainly possible) but not think about it (which would give one a headache). This is an ostrich policy, with only the appearance of wisdom. (2) The quantum formalism might fail under sufficiently sophisticated conditions. Contradicted by all known experimental evidence. (3) The relativistic formalism might fail, and the collapse of φ (stochastic test) is communicated directly to Elsewhere.
MILLER: At the point we have reached, it might be useful, in order to be more exact, to use a phrase of my colleague Smith of the University of Syracuse, which directs the discussion between what is called the exoteric position and the esoteric position. From this, instead of speaking of East and West, as we have done up to now, we ought rather to speak of exoteric and esoteric, according to whether we are speaking about the exterior or the interior of things. F. CAPRA: That's exactly what I mean when I talk about mysticism.
Having established these two points, let me come to the paradox. I would say immediately that I agree with Costa de Beauregard that there is a crisis. Indeed, it is probably a crisis having no precedent in the history of physics. Why? Because what is involved is simply the very concept of causality that we have been discussing. If there are space-like intervals, then in principle two different observers could have different orders of cause and effect within a movement. Here I believe that there are indeed space-like intervals, but, being an unyielding defender 46 Olivier Costa de Beauregard of Einsteinian causality, I also believe that, if we accept the idea of non-local extended particles and Dirac's idea that the vacuum is filled with random time-like particles, the waves of quantum mechanics can be extended to give pressure waves capable of transmitting information faster than light without violating causality.
