In this 2016 original research conducted by Rupert Sheldrake and Ashweeni Beeharee, we are introduced to the concept of joint attention – the capacity of humans to know when another individual located miles away, was having the same experience. Based on their results, we know that humans are able to detect joint attention at a distance, but more studies need to be conducted in order to understand the dynamics of this result.
Implications for AI
Joint attention plays on the idea of quantum entanglement, but at a deeper, and much more meaningful level. It shows us that humans are interconnected, and that we have to detect the subtle energies that bind us. How then can we accept a conception of humans as mere matter?
