“Shut up and calculate”

No, be still and contemplate. The new physics, QBism offers a way to put yourself in the picture.

Personally, I choose to believe that I can make my own reality if only I can remove from me the conditioning of this culture.

Ought we believe that a chance as a probability is actually completely determined? For instance that any particular chance really is on a “bell curve” of “normal distribution” of random outcomes… that in fact there is no real chance occurrence. This seems so consistent that once educated, most believe there is underlying deterministic law governing individual occurrences of an event.

So, chance is regarded as inconsistent with causal determinism and with physical or mechanical determinism.

In his lecture at Zurich in 1922, Erwin Schrödinger argued that the evidence did not justify our assumptions that physical laws were deterministic and strictly causal. Schrödinger taught that there is fundamental chance in the universe:

Indeterminism in Physics
“Fifty years ago it was simply a matter of taste or philosophic prejudice whether the preference was given to determinism or indeterminism. The former was favored by ancient custom, or possibly by an a priori belief. In favor of the latter it could be urged that this ancient habit demonstrably rested on the actual laws which we observe functioning in our surroundings. As soon, however, as the great majority or possibly all of these laws are seen to be of a statistical nature, they cease to provide a rational argument for the retention of determinism.

If nature is more complicated than a game of chess, a belief to which one tends to incline, then a physical system cannot be determined by a finite number of observations. But in practice a finite number of observations is all that we can make. All that is left to determinism is to believe that an infinite accumulation of observations would in principle enable it completely to determine the system. Such was the standpoint and view of classical physics, which latter certainly had a right to see what it could make of it. But the opposite standpoint has an equal justification: we are not compelled to assume that an infinite number of observations, which cannot in any case be carried out in practice, would suffice to give us a complete determination.”

Quantum Physics Debunks Materialism?

.

Materialism has been dead for decades now and recent research only reconfirms this and goes even further, as this video will show. It ends with a brief introduction to the Cosmic Conscious Argument for God’s existence.

NOTE:
RE: Indeterminism in Physics, Erwin Schrödinger presented this paper on the 16th June, 1931 to the Congress of A Society for Philosophical Instruction in Berlin. Pierre-Simon Laplace (1749–1827) was probably first to propose a calculus of probabilities as universal law that determine the motions of everything of astronomical objects to atomic particles.

We are about possibilities… perspectives, observations, deductions, reason, and more possibilities. Is it a maze? No, I think not. It is a dream. It is akin to multiple personality disorder (dissociation – dissociative identity disorder). Getting in touch with reality requires spiritual progress. Any information provided here is offered for entertainment purposes only. Discernment is always required.

    The Evolution of Time…

    The Evolution of Time and the Carnot Cycle at the Edge of the Universe

    By Gavin Wince

    We are all time travelers… drifting through time at a steady pace, one moment at a time. In what direction are we moving through time? Or does time move through us? How many dimensions of time are there? Though slightly allegorical, three-dimensional time offers physics new parameters, accounting for conventional and exotic physical phenomena, while maintaining the conservation of energy and symmetry groups found in physical law.

    I began playing with the idea that all of physics could be reduced to just interactions between spatial and temporal coordinates. I wondered if inertia and momentum might be composed strictly of temporal components. This would require extra time dimensions. Could inertia or momentum be used as indicators of multi-dimensional time? What about charge, spin, and other properties of matter? Answers to some of these questions appeared to reside in neutrino research, specifically neutrino flavor oscillation.

    The universality between Thermodynamics and Temporal Mechanics can reduce the fundamental forces of nature into a single expression, a new equivalence principle, which can be used as the generator for the evolution of time.

    Once Quantum Mechanics is seen through the lens of three-dimensional time, the EPR paradox looses its mystique. The speed of light may be restricted to a set speed limit within each individual frame of reference, however, frames of reference can undergo periods-of-time at varying rates of the passage-of-time.

    If the positive side of absolute zero is a state of condensed matter, what is on the negative side of absolute zero? Un-condensed matter?

    The anti-matter aspect of the Dirac equations may have been misinterpreted. The convention is to assume that “matter” is composed of “particles” distinctly different from “antimatter” composed of “antiparticles”. The assumption of one time dimension locks in this interpretation of the Dirac Equations. However, the uniform production of particles and antiparticles both in the laboratory and naturally, leads to the question: where is all of the antimatter that theoretically should have been produced with all the visible matter we see as our universe? Yet, if we apply our three-dimensional time loop to the Dirac Equation there is an alternative interpretation for this so-called “missing antimatter”.

    The Higgs particle data from both ATLAS and CMS appear to exhibit unintentional effects of quantum entanglement. Comparing the neutral Kaon mixing CP-violation and the neutral B-meson oscillation T-violation with the Higgs particle decay modes appear to demonstrate a new kind of symmetry breaking: M-Violation (mass).

    Without a beginning or an end, from the smallest to the largest, the universe emerges through up-welling from the infinitesimal depths of quantum fluctuations and cataclysmic eruptions amalgamating through a variety of entropic cycles of temporal loops.

    NOTE (by Eric): My understanding so far is that the author intends to describe the universe as continuously emerging from its source… perhaps to transform yet again in a new stage of expansion – to mature into a more perfect form?

  2. Reblogged this on the Hunt for Truth and commented:
    The only reality is mind and observations, but observations are not of things. To see the Universe as it really is, we must abandon our tendency to conceptualize observations as things.
    .
    So, statements tend to be true and yet, we tend to be misled since we cannot let go of the need to imagine anything as an object. FOR EXAMPLE, reality is immediately associated with all of the objects we recall as being reality and we are done with and cannot remotely comprehend the next quote even before we can read it:
    .
    “A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a ‘mental’ construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: ‘The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.’” – R.C. Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University, “The Mental Universe”; Nature (436:29,2005)
