Certain transformations of isolated physical systems underlying various conservation laws in physics are noted. As regards each of these transformations, there is a theoretical action that is equivalent to a matched physical action on the system. Evidence supporting this thesis is found in experimental psychological research where results of various experiments allow that the imagined rotation of an object is analogous to a physical rotation. The conservation laws based on the transformations…

The Significance of Human Observation in Measurement in Quantum Mechanics; the Nature of the Traditional Separation between Psychology and Physics

The basic reasons why psychology has traditionally been considered to be of little significance to physics are discussed briefly. It is then shown that in quantum mechanics, the course of the
