Unification of quantum mechanics

Posted by

The book, ‘The Science of Consciousness’ (published in June 2015) is authored by Eva Deli, and proposes a new hypothesis, which is rooted in string theory. The author considers the universe being divided by an information-blocking horizon into macrodimensions, called space, and microdimensions, called time.

Spacetime theories

An understanding of the beginning of the universe requires an integration of general relativity and quantum theory or in other words a theory of quantum gravity. String theory has been the best known attempt at this with quanta described as the vibrations of one dimensional strings. However, alternative theories have emerged in recent years.

Moreover, the mathematical primacy of complex and imaginary numbers suggests the primacy of complex and imaginary structures in Nature, while further implying the existence of imaginary spatial dimensions preceding real dimensions. On this basis a consistent cosmological Read more […]

Gravitational Waves

Posted by

The recent detection of gravitational waves, as predicted by relativity theory, also tends to confirm that a period of rapid inflation of the volume of space occurred in the very early universe. The observation by a telescope at the South Pole indicates a spiral twisting of primordial light waves, as a result of an inflationary phase shortly after the Big Bang. This discovery is somewhat comparable to the detection of the Higgs boson, which has also been predicted by physical theories, but was until Read more […]
