Kill Locality To Save Causality And Objective Reality

August 25, 2020

Henri Poincaré’s Relativity was a Relativity of “Local Time”: Henri defined the two concepts, Relativity and Local Time, making electromagnetism the core of mechanics. However, the present Quantum Mechanics we have, CIQ, the Copenhagen Interpretation of the Quantum, born after Poincaré died, is RELATIVE to the Hilbert Space it uses for a particular computation. That’s one Relativity too far. Because it is not clear which Hilbert Space we must choose: a number of related paradoxes arise, the Schrodinger Cat, Wigner’s Friend, etc.   

In 1964, John Bell published an article called ‘On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen paradox’ in which he showed that “LOCAL” hidden variable theories conflict with observation. Bell writes: ‘The paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additional variables were to restore to the theory causality and locality. In this note that idea will be formulated mathematically and shown to be incompatible with the statistical predictions of quantum mechanics. It is the requirement of locality, or more precisely that the result of a measurement on one system be unaffected by operations on a distant system with which it has interacted in the past, that creates the essential difficulty.’ [1]

Reality is one. The Eagle’s perception of the universe is the same as ours… with just five time the visual acuity…

The philosophical question is why should “causality” and “locality” both be saved? Couldn’t we just eliminate one of them? The obvious one to eliminate is locality. The idea of nonlocality is all over human mythology. Non-causality, not so much [2]. Most physicists couldn’t bear to eliminate “locality” because their great guru, Albert Einstein, and his prolific, revered followers, had decreed that nothing whatsoever could go faster than light. Unfortunately for them, reality decided otherwise. So the relativistic lemmings decided to do away with reality. In their version, reality is whatever they decide it to be. The analogy with the core principle of the global plutocratic media and power take over is no happenstance [3]. 

Philosophically this is irritating, and I am irritated. Make no mistake: I know that accelerating a mass beyond the speed of light seems impossible, because of a well-known equation… And I found a deeper reason relating directly to the slowing down of accelerated clocks. I also know, and do not intend to indulge, in arguments where space itself is accelerating.

What irritates me is this: the speed of light is a LOCAL concept. “Spooky” 

ACTION-AT-A-DISTANCE, Spukhafte Fernwirkung, to speak like Einstein, is NON-LOCAL. 

How can one use a local concept (constancy of lightspeed; limitation from thereof) to disprove a non-local concept? One has to do what is known in mathematics as “integration”. All differential geometers know that this is rich in surprises…  

In particular, if one is present with any curvature in space at a point, the speed of light will vary along loops originating at that point. That’s what having “curvature at that point” boils down to. So the speed of light is… relative. That’s the whole idea of “GENERAL” Relativity. When a fanatical believer of the consistency and constancy of the speed of light is tossed in a Black Hole by yours truly, as justly deserved, it will forever fade away slowly with the frozen expression of the dumbfounded [4]…  

In any case the physically minded lemmings out there spurned nonlocality (defined as anything faster than light, supraluminal). Instead, they asserted locality, and were thus reduced to putting causality, and even reality, in doubt. Out of that sprung the multiworlds, multiverse, multiminds, multireality description of… reality. Most theoretical physicists, according to polls, are OK with reality being observer dependent. 

This is obviously grotesque.

[2] A well-known argument against “God” is to ask who, what, caused “God”? The Christian theologian answer is that God is the ultimate cause… That answer makes monotheism acausal, thus irrational…  But the Greco-Roman instigators of Christianism saw that one coming, so they found an excellent answer: as the Gospel of John has it, the “Logos” itself (what you need to describe cause). Nowadays lemming Quantum physicists give another answer: logos is relative…

[3] The madness who has seized academic theoretical physicists communicated to the humanities, and from there to the streets… and the global plutocracy… This is how the Zeitgeist, l’esprit du temps, is created.

[4] Albert Einstein himself admitted, discreetly, that the speed of light varies in General Relativity… That’s the whole idea…
