Is the Human Mind Actually Bound by the Laws of Physics?

    Lucien Hardy, a theoretical physicist from the Perimeter Institute in Canada, is suggesting that the measurements between a pair of entangled particles (quantum entanglement) could be controlled by something that may potentially be separate from the material world: the human mind.

    His idea is derived from what French philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes called the mind-matter duality, "[where] the mind is outside of regular physics and intervenes on the physical world," Hardy explained.

    If a violation of quantum theory is discovered, it could mean that the human mind (consciousness) isn't made up of the same matter governed by physics. Furthermore, it could suggest that the mind is capable of overcoming physics with free will.
