For the first time it is shown that the logic of quantum mechanics can be derived from classical physics. An orthomodular lattice of propositions characteristic of quantum logic, is constructed for manifolds in Einstein’s theory of general relativity. A particle is modelled by a topologically non-trivial 4-manifold with closed timelike curves—a 4-geon, rather than as an evolving 3-manifold. It is then possible for both the state preparationand measurement apparatus to constrain the results of… 

How does causality protection constrain the form of physical law

It's well known that a naive approach to quantising gravity leads to causality violation and or infinite energies. Both of which would allow one to surpass the limit of what is Turing-computable. I

Testing the Orientability of Time

A number of experimental tests of time orientability are described as well as clear experimental signatures from non time orientability (time reversal). Some tests are well known, while others are

Electrodynamics and Time Orientability

On spacetimes that are not time orientable we construct a U(1) bundle to measure the twisting of the time axis. This single assumption, and simple construction, gives rise to Maxwell’s equations of

The Lorentz Force Law And Kaluza Theories

Kaluza’s 1921 theory of gravity and electromagnetism using a fifth wrapped-up spatial dimension is inspiration for many modern attempts to develop new physical theories. The original theory has

Transition probability spaces in loop quantum gravity

We study the (generalized) transition probability spaces, in the sense of Mielnik and Cantoni, for spacetime quantum states in loop quantum gravity. First, we show that loop quantum gravity admits


This paper describes a theory explaining precognition literally as the “pre-cognition” of information contained within the percipient’s brain in the future—a link with his or her future experience of

Copenhagen Quantum Mechanics Emerges from a Deterministic Schrödinger Theory in 11 Dimensional Spacetime Including Weak Field Gravitation

We construct a world model consisting of a matter field living in 4 dimensional spacetime and a gravitational field living in 11 dimensional spacetime. The seven hidden dimensions are compactified

Postulates and Prejudices in Fundamental Physics

A new view on quantum gravity is presented, among others a new step toward quantization of gravity is presented. A model is also developed, where the elementary particles are black holes. This

Guessed Formulae for the Elementary Particle Masses, Interpretation and Arguments of Them and a New View on Quantum Gravity

Formulae for the masses of elementary particles obtained with guessing are presented in the article. A derivation, which tries to physically interpret these formulae, was also made afterward. Said

Non-Commutative Geometry, Categories and Quantum Physics

After an introduction to some basic issues in non-commutative geometry (Gel'fand duality, spectral triples), we present a "panoramic view" of the status of our current research program on the use of

Cauchy problem in spacetimes with closed timelike curves.

The conclusion of this paper is that CTC’s may not be as nasty as people have assumed, and is reinforced by the fact that they do not affect Gauss’'s theorem and thus do not affected the derivation of global conservation laws from differential ones.

Closed timelike curves

This lecture reviews recent research on closed timelike curves (CTCS), including these questions: Do the laws of physics prevent CTCs from ever forming in classical spacetime? If so, by what physical

Indirect Evidence for Quantum Gravity

An experiment gave results inconsistent with the simplest alternative to quantum gravity, the semiclassical Einstein equations. This evidence supports (but does not prove) the hypothesis that a

A Remarkable Property of Plane Waves in General Relativity

The complete general-relativistic plane-wave space-times (gravitational, electromagnetic, or both) are examined in relation to the focusing effect they exert on null cones. The following remarkable
