The Quantum Potential & the Bell Length of the 3D Quantum Vacuum as the Parameters Generating the Avian Compass

David Fiscaletti


A model of magnetoreception of birds in the picture of a three-dimensional quantum vacuum defined by energy fluctuations corresponding to elementary processes of creation/annihilation of virtual particles-antiparticles is proposed. In this approach, a quantum potential of the vacuum and its corresponding Bell length of the vacuum emerge as the ultimate physical parameters which generate the quantum correlations and thus the processes responsible of the avian quantum compass.
