In Zen it is argued that the world of normal, ordinary, perception, is illusory. The “material world” is not really real. Instead, another world, a parallel world is real. How is this so? I have argued previously that Zen Realism provides an explanation for the real in a way which is satisfying. In Zen, when considering a rock, for example, it is argued that my sense impression experience of the rock is illusory. Then, at the level of understanding, I deconstruct rock, and find it to be a culturally contingent illusion. This is Derrida’s contribution. In other words, at level two, at the level of understanding, there is no rock. Finally, at level three through the use of Intuition, I find the rock to be real once again, at a deeper level. This type of Intuition is what Bergson describes as “Intellectual Sympathy.” Now, how is it that I can intuitively judge or reflect the rock to be real at level three in a way which transcends both levels one and two? I argue that level three intuition is a function of

Quantum non-locality. I argue that when Zen says that you must “become the rock” to know the rock, that this is precisely and literally what happens. Through non-local intellectual sympathy my mind links with the rock and does something like a “mind meld” as done by Mr. Spock in Star Trek. My mind can literally intuitively feel the Quantum Field of the rock, and the rock itself. This is perfectly scientific since Quantum Physics proves that it is possible to have non-local communication at a distance between subatomic particles which are literally miles away. I argue that at least this aspect of Intuition is a Quantum Function and thus scientific.
