PART ONE: Making Sense of Quantum Randomness

PART TWO: Matter and the Poached Egg
PART THREE: Psychism, the Deed, and Beyond

This paper is in three parts. In this Part One, the randomness displayed by quantum objects is explored.
The notion of quantumhood in then introduced. It refers to a kind of “wave wholeness” of elementary
particles that, most significantly, turns out to be necessary to sustain nature’s consistency. When this
quantumhood is in danger of being lost, a wave collapse, or quantum jump, is in order.
