The transactional interpretation (TI) of quantum mechanics, which uses retarded and advanced solutions of the Schrodinger equation and its complex conjugate, offers an original way to visualize and…

Causal Symmetry and the Transactional Interpretation

- Philosophy

Cramer's (1986) transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics posits retrocausal influences in quantum processes in an attempt to alleviate some of the interpretational difficulties of the…

Quantum measurements as weighted symmetry breaking processes: the hidden measurement perspective

The purpose of the present note is twofold. Firstly, we highlight the similarities between the ontologies of Kastner's possibilist transactional interpretation (PTI) of quantum mechanics - an…

Why Everettians Should Appreciate the Transactional Interpretation

- Philosophy
- 2010

The attractive feature of the Everett approach is its admirable spirit of approaching the quantum puzzle with a Zen-like "beginner’s mind" in order to try to envision what the pure formalism might be…

The Possibilist Transactional Interpretation and Relativity

A recent ontological variant of Cramer’s Transactional Interpretation, called “Possibilist Transactional Interpretation” or PTI, is extended to the relativistic domain. The present interpretation…

Absorbers in the Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Decoherence is like capitalism. Its proponents regard it as obvious, given human nature, and its success seems overwhelming. Competitors largely belong to the past, or get the impression they do.…

If Physics Is an Information Science, What Is an Observer?

- PhysicsInf.
- 2012

The consequences of replacing an informationally-impoverished observer with an observer that satisfies the requirements of classical automata theory is investigated, showing that with reasonable assumptions about the physical dynamics of information channels, the observations recorded by such an observer will display the typical characteristics predicted by quantum theory.

Interaction-Free Effects Between Distant Atoms

- PhysicsFoundations of physics
- 2018

A Gedanken experiment is presented where an excited and a ground-state atom are positioned such that, within the former’s half-life time, they exchange a photon with 50% probability, and the result is apparently precluding entanglement, which gives rise to the Quantum Zeno effect.
