Quantum Coaching for Human Systems
Introduction to Quantum Psychology © Martyn Carruthers

Online Life Coaching & Quantum Coaching

Quantum Thinking
explore the human potential of relationship systems.
Quantum Coaching offers wonderful ways to evolve and change
- with testable results.

Archaic, Classical & Quantum Thinking

The differences between archaic, classical and quantum thinking focus on beliefs and assumptions about reality. Archaic perspectives assume that reality is governed by spirits, demons and gods. Classical perspectives assume that reality is governed by natural laws. Quantum perspectives assume that reality is not governed, rather reality behaves as an emerging complex system.

People using archaic thinking try to control reality by appeals to esoteric agencies. People using classic thinking try to control reality controlled by applying natural laws. In quantum thinking, reality is ultimately unpredictable, yet can be influenced by applying systemic rules.

It's very hard to talk quantum using a language designed
to tell monkeys where the ripe fruit is. Terry Pratchett

In Science and Sanity (1933), Alfred Korzybski proposed the abolition of the is of identity from the English language. (The is of identity takes the form X is a Y. e.g., "I am a coach", "You are a client", "The brain is a computer" etc.)

You told me that your son has A.D.D. You said that he has
paid less attention to his school-work for the last year or so.
You also said that you and your spouse started fighting about
a year ago. Do you see a connection here?

Truth or Illusion?

Research in quantum physics indicates that much of our visible reality is illusory. Our cosmos seems to be composed of invisible and paradoxical energies. At a macroscopic (classical) level, we can predict how accumulations of energy (matter) behave over time. At a quantum level we cannot predict the behavior of a single electron for a single moment. See coaching in chaos.

Quantum thinking does not replace archaic or classic thinking.
Archaic thinking is useful for making decisions about esoteric principles.
Classic thinking is useful for making decisions in controllable environments.

Quantum thinking is useful for making complex decisions in situations with
relationship pressures and ambiguous objectives in changing environments.

Consider quantum tunneling; electrons can pass through impenetrable barriers by already existing on the other side. Can this be true? This paradox is used in superconductivity. Quantum tunneling is a feature of tunneling microscopes and other practical applications. What do you believe?

Do quantum mechanics repair quantum systems?

Consider Schrödinger's equation, below, which describes how quantum systems change over time. This equation is as central to quantum mechanics as Newton's laws are to classical mechanics, or as the Ten Commandments are to Judeo-Christian religions. What do you believe?

Consider superstring theory; that everything in the universe - all particles, forces and even space-time itself - consists of minute strings that vibrate and spin in a multi-dimensional superspace. Can this be true? Are you composed of sub-atomic, multi-dimensional energy fields? What do you believe?

Consider the simultaneous existence of parallel universes. If reality is quantum-mechanical, then our universe should have more structure than a collection of classical particles. Perhaps our universe should be called a multi-verse. What do you believe?

Quantum Psychology, Beliefs & Reality

... the structure of the multiverse is determined by information flow, and the universality of computation ensures that by studying quantum computational networks it is possible to obtain results about information flow that must also hold for quantum systems in general.

David Deutsch, Centre for Quantum Computation, Oxford University

Why is the amount of antimatter in the universe so small? Research at Brookhaven in 1965 revealed a slight violation of symmetry in the decay of neutral kaons (sub-atomic particles). As a result of this violation, a slight excess of matter survived the Big Bang. This world and your body may exist because of a violation of a quantum law that few people have ever heard of. Can you believe in neutral kaon decay?

Soul is said to be an immaterial essence of every individual. Soul is described as an inner spiritual principle, a source of bodily functions and mental activities. All human cultures seem to include beliefs in souls that exist apart from physical bodies. Can you believe in Soul? (See Psychobiology of Soul)

Quantum Beliefs

Beliefs are not facts. Your reality is what you assume to be true, based on what you believe. Your beliefs are either summaries of your experience, or (more likely) pre-digested summaries that you accepted from trusted people. Your beliefs can support your happiness ... or your depression.

Common consequences of clinging to obsolete beliefs include:

  • Depression: You retreat from a life that does not make sense
  • Relationship Chaos: You ignore or abuse your communication skills
  • Emotional Stress: You experience overwhelming anger, sadness or fear
  • Age Regression: You expect the world to follow your immature expectations
  • Addictions, Compulsions & Obsessions: You attempt distraction and escape

You probably accepted most of your beliefs about the world from your early authorities - your parents, relatives and teachers. Hence many of your assumptions about reality may be based on obsolete concepts and may be in urgent need of revision. We can help you replace any limiting beliefs.

Quantum Coaching & Human Potential

The great law of culture is: Let each become all that he was created capable of becoming.
Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

Create yourself out of nothing! Make up your mind! ... Martyn Carruthers (still here)

For millennia, our ancestors pondered the creation of order. They told simple stories that described the emergence of order from primordial chaos. These archaic chaos theories are rejected by most classical scientists, yet provide interesting metaphors for understanding modern systems theories, quantum psychology and chaos coaching.

Can you, for a moment, stop trying to understand the world by statistical evaluation? Instead, consider evaluating dynamic relationships between members of complex human systems. Quantum thinking can both challenge and assist you to update your view of reality.

Do you want to further develop your human evolution? Do you want to explore and extend your limits? Quantum thinking and systemic coaching offer you tools for finding or creating innovative solutions ... for example, you can explore multiple possible futures or allow complex problems to teach you how to solve them.

Quantum Thinking & Leadership

If you want to evaluate or change a system, you may first need to update your beliefs about reality, the system ... and yourself. Instead of statistical analysis you can apply systemic leadership.

The principles of quantum entanglement offer you radical insights into how the world works. If observing a system affects the system, your observations may be forever out of date. If when evaluating a system you become entangled in a system, your evaluations may be biased. If by predicting a system's behavior, you affect that system's behavior - your predictions may be self-fulfilling.

When you plan, direct, or control human systems, are you using tools derived from archaic (esoteric) thinking, classical (Newtonian) thinking - or modern (quantum) thinking? Our quantum coaching can help you find solutions for unexpected problems.

Quantum Psychology & Systemic Coaching

Are you attempting to change or transform individuals, families, teams or organizations? Are you trying to use logical, linear plans to affect change? Are the results of your initiatives somehow uninspiring and shallow? Do you know why?

Our systemic toolkit can help you update your paradigm of yourself on this planet. You are a member of many relationship systems and you are probably enmeshed in your past, current and even future relationships: your friendships, teams, partnerships, clubs ... and of your regional and national cultures.

Systemic diagnosis can help you perceive organizations as interactive human systems, rather than as esoteric entities or as classical machines. With it you can better manage and change human systems ... for example you might join a system and then change yourself!

Quantum Psychology & Entanglements

Quantum entanglements allow simultaneous action at a distance. Human enmeshment often shows up as compulsions and inappropriate behavior, and are often experienced as limiting beliefs and inappropriate emotions ... see identity loss.

Members of human systems follow systemic, not classical, rules. Some rules are explicit - yet it may be against the rules to discuss the rules. Consider the systemic rules for a military unit, for a happy hippy commune and for your own family.

Online Quantum Coaching and Relationship Counseling

I worked in health physics on nuclear submarines and at nuclear reactors for 18 years before I created a practical synthesis of quantum thinking and coaching.
