Is the universe as we know it, managed and controlled by an ordered consciousness? Can our thoughts influence our realities?

Narayanan kuttyYes, according to a recent journal publication by Dr. Narayanan Kutty, Assistant Professor at Department of Sciences, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore.

The paper titled Quantum Nonlocality, Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen Argument and Consciousness was published in a recent issue of the international journal NeuroQuantology.

Known for its interdisciplinary exploration of the nature of quantum physics, particularly its relationship to the nervous system, the journal’s editorial board comprises of top scientists including Nobel Laureate Physicist Josephson.

Dr. Sultan Talraci, chief editor of the journal, acknowledged Dr. Narayanan Kutty’s paper to be one of the top ten of recent times. “The paper describes some of the most interesting research of the last few years,” he stated.

The paper was written from research conducted as part of Dr. Narayanan’s doctoral thesis.

“Quantum mechanics is the highest level of physics as we know it,” the thesis stated. “The philosophy of Advaita, the gist of most religions of the world, fits neatly in with the world view that can be afforded by considerations of quantum mechanics.”


The thesis was reviewed by several scholars from around the world.

“Through his thesis, Dr. Narayanan Kutty proves that he has a profound knowledge of the foundations of quantum mechanics as well as its various interpretations and their pros and cons,” commented Prof. Thomas Filk from the University of Freiburg in Germany.

“The thesis is a pleasure to read, it covers most of the important issues in this context and it proves to be fairly objective concerning various interpretations,” he added.


Dr. Narayanan Kutty’s paper elaborates on the metaphysical implications and the world view that can be derived from the currently accepted norms of quantum mechanics and cosmology. It establishes the concept of mind over matter.

The understanding that what we believe in, influences our realities, has been used by success coaches to motivate students, but this is the first time that this has been discussed as a scientific postulate.
