# The Quantum Mechanics of Being and Its Manifestation

@article{Mohrhoff2016TheQM, title={The Quantum Mechanics of Being and Its Manifestation}, author={U. Mohrhoff}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2016} }

How can quantum mechanics be (i) the fundamental theoretical framework of contemporary physics and (ii) a probability calculus that presupposes the events to which, and on the basis of which, it assigns probabilities? The question is answered without invoking knowledge or observers, by interpreting the necessary distinction between two kinds of physical quantities - unconditionally definite quantities and quantities that have values only if they are measured - as a distinction between the… Expand

Quantum Mechanics, the Manifestation of the Territory, and the Evolution of Maps

- Philosophy
- 2018

Reality is not a territory. Reality is an intrinsically undifferentiated Being that manifests the territory, wherein beings capable of mapping the territory evolve. Once fully evolved, these beings… Expand
