Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew
And then experience told me truth
In mortal bosoms never grew

Spectra of neutrinos from dark matter annihilations
While absorption and Γµ − Γτ can be neglected in terrestrial experiments (e.g., in future precise longbaseline experiments) their effects are relevant for neutrinos with energy Eν >∼ 100 GeV produced by DM annihilation in the Sun; note that in this case oscillations into νe are suppressed.

Within this model how does one get an experience of the room at all, if one does not have a prior experience of the room? However, the experience of the room itself is a change in the state of one’s own retina and post-retinal visual system and this is why the room can be perceived.
Founding quantum theory on the basis of consciousness
Therefore space-time and quantum fields are experiences or contents of the universal stream of consciousness to which our experiences all belong.
Founding quantum theory on the basis of consciousness
This macroscopic experience of space is a content of our streams of consciousness created from direct macroscopic experiences, events which enter the stream of our consciousness by interacting with macroscopic ob jects.
Founding quantum theory on the basis of consciousness
The state vector which is represented as a linear combination of potential experiences represents the state of potential consciousness not experiences in consciousness.
Founding quantum theory on the basis of consciousness
The result of the experience while unique, prior to the experience itself (when it is in potentia), should be written in such a way that it is a mixture or a sum of probability amplitudes for each one to occur as opposed to just probabilities.
