The interesting schism between the quantum and Newtonian world is that the former is assumed to work at the microscopic level and the latter at the visible and telescopic world.

But perhaps that is not true.

My hoop shot involves several data points, but it's conclusion is that humans behave under the rules of quantum behavior when looked at at the grossest level.

For one, the human genome is incredibly simple. The number of genes involved in building the human body is similar to that of the mouse -- and nowhere near the complexity of a chimpanzee.

Thus we are simple particles. We are also highly electrical; galvanic. We are social and probably emit or leak various radiations to our co-humans.

In life, we often talk about free will, but free will is ill defined. In observing our behavior, and the limits of our behavior, we are more like cars on a roller coaster than points moveable in infinitely many directions.

I will describe some of the human quantum behavior (HQB) in replies to this post.

So, I've been thinking some more about Macroscopic Quantum Behavior (MAQB...I've renamed it from the thread title). No, it's not about really large quarks or anything, it's about quantized behavior in our world. So, the idea here is that there has always been this discontinuity between the world of very small things, atoms, and very big things...bats, cows, whales, people. The idea is that the small world is quantized...and describable by (fairly) simple mathematics because things can only exist in certain states...up, down, p-n shells for electrons.

Yet, much of our science, in the size of world that we live in, deals with all sorts of restrictions, fixed constants, and states that rule our lives. The thought is that we have continuous free will...that at our size, any piece of matter can continuously move into any space it can through a continuous free ranging sequence. Now, tackling that will take a lot of explaining, but I thought I'd start with a list of things that make life at our size...quantized:

    Musical notes, pitches
    Syntax
    The Golden Mean in nature and architecture
    Fibonacci numbers
    Genes
    Evolution-Developmental (EvoDevo) structures
    Ethology
    Speed of Light
    Speed of Sound
    Newton's Equations, Maxwell's Equations
    Eadweard Muybridge photographs; Cheerleading Teams
    Army Formations
    Crystals
    Freezing Point; Boiling Point
    Pi, Euler's number, Avogadro's Number, Gravitational Constant
    Fractals


This is the world in which we live...not a world of continuity, but a world of levels of existence. We need to say more to discover if we're quantized beings...but not right now.
