: David:

: Could you explain how the axions provide for x-ray vision. I did check out the "Autobiography of a Yogi" that you mentioned below, and I also noticed the part where he saw a cow pass behind a wall and he continued to see him. So apparently x-ray vision happens, but with axions, not x-rays. But what is the mechanism?

Yanniru:

Like neutrinos, axions interact so waekly with physical particles that physical structures are transparent to them. However, axions are essentially motionless, whereas neutrinos travel at nearly the speed of light. So to have as you call it, axion vision, we need mechanisms to emit signals, as from the cow, transport those signals in the axion medium, and then receive or detect the signals in the axion computer that corresponds to a reflection of a human brain. That's a great deal to know nothing about. So I cannot say much about how axion vision could work. But my supposition is that it works with vibrations like sound waves, only the vibrations are of the collective motion of the axions. Presumably all physical structures are reflected in the axion background by collective vibrations, and like sound waves they are likely to radiate. So it's fairly easy to understand the transmission and propagation of axion waves. The real problem is the detection mechanism. That requires some sort of nonlinear medium which the axion medium is not. There must be other kinds of particles that interact with axions just as light interacts with atoms in the physical world. By the way just as sound waves pass through each other, axion waves pass through each other as well as physical structures, thus accounting for axion vision. All we need is an intelligent axion receptor.
