QUANTUM REALISM

Brian Whitworth

 In physical realism the physical world is real in itself while in quantum realism it is the output of quantum processing, i.e. virtual.

This project aims to reverse engineer physics, to give a quantum processing basis for time, space, matter, charge, gravity, magnetism and spin. After over ten years the progress so far is:

  Chapter 1.The Physical World as a Virtual Reality (2017) Makes the case that the physical world could be a virtual reality based on the facts of physics, and outlines a scientific method to reverse engineer physical reality Old versions are at:  arXiv 2011 version  Academia 2014 link

  Chapter 2. Simulating Space and Time (2017) Develops a model of time and space as quantum processing outputs. Old versions:  arXiv 2011 version.  Academia 2014 link

  Chapter 3. The Light of Existence (2017) Explains the strange properties of  light in processing terms, like  the two-slit experiment and how it chooses a path after it arrives. Old versions arXiv 2011 version. Academia 2014 link 

  Chapter 4. The Matter Glitch: An Alternative to the Standard Model (2017)  Explains the particles of the standard model as photon wave structures and makes the testable prediction that matter evolved when light collided. Old version: Academia 2014 link

  Chapter 5. Matter Teleports. (2017) Applies the quantum processing model to special and general relativity, to explain how gravity, electric and magnetic fields move matter. Contains a  Glossary of all the terms used so far.

  Chapter 6. The Ego Illusion. Applies current psychology and neuro-psychology to the question of whether we have an "I". TODO

          Chapter 7. What is Reality? What support does quantum realism have in philosophy, religion and other works? TODO
