Within a few short years scientists developed a consistent theory of the atom that explained its fundamental structure and its interactions.

The Reality of Relations

This review, of the understanding of quantum mechanics, is broad in scope, and aims to reflect enough of the literature to be representative of the current state of the subject. To enhance clarity, the main findings are presented in the form of a coherent synthesis of the reviewed sources. The review highlights core characteristics of quantum mechanics. One is statistical balance in the collective response of an ensemble of identically prepared systems, to differing measurement types. Another is that states are mathematical terms prescribing probability aspects of future events, relating to an ensemble of systems, in various situations. These characteristics then yield helpful insights on entanglement, measurement, and widely-discussed experiments and analyses. The review concludes by considering how these insights are supported, illustrated and developed by some specific approaches to understanding quantum mechanics.

We see one cat and then another cat. But we can also see that our cat is on top of the mat and subsequently notice that the cat from next door is on top of the fence. Repetition in the first sense requires only one thing and then another. By contrast, repetition in the second sense requires two or more things and then two or more other things. Properties are typically introduced to account for repetition in the first sense, whereas relations are typically introduced to account for repetition in the second sense. Nevertheless, there are elucidations on offer that may help us better appreciate the distinction. More examples may help too.

Nobody understands what consciousness is or how it works. Nobody understands quantum mechanics either. Could that be more than coincidence? The American physicist Richard Feynman said this about the notorious puzzles and paradoxes of quantum mechanics, the theory physicists use to describe the tiniest objects in the Universe. But he might as well have been talking about the equally knotty problem of consciousness. Some scientists think we already understand what consciousness is, or that it is a mere illusion.

Introduction: The Metaphysics of Quantum Mechanics

Don't have an account? In this chapter it is argued that the decisive argument against the reducibility of causal relations comes from quantum physics. Nonetheless, it is argued that quantum entanglement by no means implies that we have to abandon an ontology of objects in favour of an ontology of structures. All extant proposals for a quantum ontology of matter in spacetime are committed to objects, whose dynamics are determined not by their local, intrinsic properties, but by an holistic property instantiated by all the objects together—a structure that takes all the objects in the universe as its relata. The view set out in this chapter combines ontic structural realism with an ontology of objects that can be conceived as substances.

Unlike classical mechanics, quantum mechanics assumes the famous Heisenberg uncertainty relations. One of these concerns time: the energy—time uncertainty relation. Unlike the canonical position—momentum uncertainty relation, the energy—time relation is not reflected in the operator formalism of quantum theory. This chapter sheds light on these questions and others, including the absorbing matter of whether quantum mechanics allows for the existence of ideal clocks. The second section notes that quantum mechanics does not involve a special problem for time, and that there is no fundamental asymmetry between space and time in quantum mechanics over and above the asymmetry which already exists in classical physics.

The strange link between the human mind and quantum physics

Esfeld, Michael Quantum entanglement and a metaphysics of relations. This paper argues for a metaphysics of relations based on a characterization of quantum entanglement in terms of non-separability, thereby regarding entanglement as a sort of holism. By contrast to a radical metaphysics of relations, the position set out in this paper recognizes things that stand in the relations, but claims that, as far as the relations are concerned, there is no need for these things to have qualitative intrinsic properties underlying the relations.

Створки давили на плечо с неимоверной силой. Не успел Стратмор ее остановить, как она скользнула в образовавшийся проем. Он попытался что-то сказать, но Сьюзан была полна решимости. Ей хотелось поскорее оказаться в Третьем узле, и она достаточно хорошо изучила своего шефа, чтобы знать: Стратмор никуда не уйдет, пока она не разыщет ключ, спрятанный где-то в компьютере Хейла.

Внутри не было никакого лирджета. Он несколько раз моргнул затуманенными глазами, надеясь, что это лишь галлюцинация. Увы, ангар был пуст. О Боже. Где же самолет.

Затем облокотился о плиту, поправил широкие серые брюки и крахмальную рубашку.

 Провайдер находится в районе территориального кода двести два. Однако номер пока не удалось узнать. - Двести два. Где это? - Где же на необъятных американских просторах прячется эта загадочная Северная Дакота.

Беккер удивленно посмотрел на. - Разве.

Недавно Стратмор сделал так, что Халохота снабдили новейшей игрушкой АНБ - компьютером Монокль. Себе Стратмор купил Скайпейджер, который запрограммировал на ту же частоту. Начиная с этого момента его связь с Халохотом стала не только мгновенной, но и абсолютно неотслеживаемой. Первое послание, которое он отправил Халохоту, не оставляло места сомнениям, тем более что они это уже обсуждали: убить Энсея Танкадо и захватить пароль. Стратмор никогда не спрашивал у Халохота, как тот творил свои чудеса: тот просто каким-то образом повторял их снова и .

Джабба покачал головой и бросил взгляд на Сьюзан, которая по-прежнему была где-то далеко, потом посмотрел в глаза директору. - Сэр, как вы знаете, всякий, кто хочет проникнуть в банк данных извне, должен пройти несколько уровней защиты. Фонтейн кивнул.

Metaphysics in Contemporary Physics

 - Я думала… я думала, что вы наверху… я слышала… - Успокойся, - прошептал.  - Ты слышала, как я швырнул на верхнюю площадку свои ботинки. Сьюзан вдруг поняла, что смеется и плачет одновременно. Коммандер спас ей жизнь.

    The study and interpretation of quantum phenomena have generated a lively debate not only among physicists but also among philosophers, from a multiplicity of perspectives.
