The Dark Side of Light Things:
In the late 2060s the Minskerian school was founded upon the revolutionary discovery that fundamental particles are coupled to a constellation of higher dimensional objects called dians. Dians encode and implement the physical laws of lower dimensional matter. The field of cognitive science found hope in deciphering the enigma of consciousness when an interdisciplinary group discovered unusual activity in the diantic particles linked to the nervous system, and knocked emojis out of everyday usage. More sophisticated was Gottfried Leibniz’s Characteristica Universalis, an alphabet for representing ideas; Leibniz postulated reasoning obeyed a grammar. Inspired by Leibniz’s ideas, Professor B. Minsker developed Quantum Metacognition Theory (QMC) which states the human conscious condition emerges from the behavior of the diantic particles coupled to the nervous system. Utilizing QMC, physicists developed a method to construct artificial consciousness out of diantic particles and temporarily inject them into another’s mind.
