To do[edit]

Currently the article focusses on Tegmarks "hobby" (interpretations of QM), and gives only sparse info about his main research area and his biography. At least the data available from his page http://web.mit.edu/physics/facultyandstaff/faculty/max_tegmark.html needs to be taken into account. --Pjacobi (talk) 22:05, 29 December 2007 (UTC)


"infer a theory of consciousness from quantum effects, " can be found on Orch-OR, perhaps a link to this page might be helpful? Ufoolme (talk) 09:09, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Meaningless?[edit]

The following paragraph seems to contain little in the way of unambiguous mathematical meaning, so I have removed it in its entirety.

Note: The motivation for this post appears to be the intention to justify innappriate changes to another article. Persephone19 (talk) 21:25, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
How are you aware of the motivation of a post from 4 years ago? IRWolfie- (talk) 13:49, 21 February 2012 (UTC)


"The computational expression of a single random number between one and zero (with all its infinite decimals) is longer than the computational expression of the whole set of numbers that exist between 1 and 0, so it may be more informationally economical for reality to consist of infinite parallel universes instead of just one. The computer code for such a computation is only two lines long."

--Tarnjp (talk) 23:29, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I guess the part about reality consisting of infinite parallel universes does not entirely follow from the preceding statement. Perhaps the quote is best understood in context. --AB (talk) 09:07, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Notability tag[edit]

Adding the notability tag is a postive thing, it encourages others to add secondary sources to help establish notability. It is not necessarily a precursor to deletion/AfD nomination. IRWolfie- (talk) 10:46, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Orch OR[edit]

Max Tegmark is often quoted for his paper claiming to refute Orch OR. It's a bit surprising this isn't mentioned in this article.Persephone19 (talk) 16:47, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
