Physicist Nicolas Gisin has just published a series of scientific reports that could radically change the way we perceive “time.” Professor Gisin’s work, currently working at the University of Geneva, attempts to link the current quantum mechanics theory with an old mathematical hypothesis, developed by Dutch mathematician Luitzen Egbertus Jan. Brouwer (father of the fixed point theory of Brouwer, one of the most important mathematical theorems of the 20th century)
Mr. Brouwer was the inventor of a mathematical hypothesis called “intuitionistic mathematics”, a controversial way of recognizing mathematics that rejected many of the basic elements of classical mathematics.
But this is not a science-based diet or the belief that some harmful vaccine might be wary of us, this mathematical theory has been at the center of controversy for more than a century and Gisin’s research has potential. ability to bring it to light. The theory itself is complex, but its biggest controversial point is that “intuition mathematics” requires the elimination of intermediate elements in mathematics.
An example of an “intermediate factor” in mathematics can be taken as follows: when making a statement, either it is true or its negative sentence is true; a couple of positive – negative sentences all match the example, “I have 5 pens” or “I don’t have 5 pens”.
Einstein’s theory of relativity means that by deterministic math, it requires the elimination of intermediate elements, ensuring that no random elements occur during the development of a mathematical model. According to the theory of relativity, everything that has happened and will happen starts happening at the time when the Universe existed – that is, it was predestined.
Mathematically intuitive, on the other hand, says the opposite: math cannot tell us what will happen, because like a qubit in quantum mechanics, it holds a lot of value until it is understood. close (ie when measured); The next number in a mathematical sequence cannot be accurately predicted before it occurs.
Professor Gisin wrote that “The mathematical language that makes up our understanding of the time element in physics”, And it is necessary to reverse the conflicting opinions between Brouwer’s intuitive intuition mathematician and Einstein’s predestined mathematical proponent. Scientific reports write:
“Einstein himself was uncomfortable knowing that the physics he loved lacked the concept of ‘instant’ – although admittedly, he could not find a way to combine them. He concluded that he would have to live with a new situation”.
Mathematical genius Albert Einstein, who changed humanity’s understanding of physics.
In order to agree with Einstein’s theory of relativity, and to avoid dealing with the concept of “immediately”, mathematicians add an infinite element to mathematics. For example, if we assume an infinite series of numbers, a person will be able to cleverly apply the theory of space-time to describe the existence of a unique and infinite series of real numbers, to which we are an official. close. Like a rotating disc with you, a needle is placed on the surface of the disc, looking at the rotation of the supposedly endless number.
In this case, the concept of “instant” exists only because we are here to witness it. In theory, if the time machine is successfully installed, we can go back to the point at which “instant” has or has not taken place.
But if Gisin’s report (and Brouwer’s intuition mathematics) is true, the ability to travel to that time will be impossible:
“A volume of space would not contain more than a finite amount of information, and a real number would not contain infinite information”.
In other words, this assumption by Professor Gisin suggests that there is no way for the infinite universe to suddenly form immediately and be immediately associated with time. As mathematically intuitively pointed out, time takes place step by step, “instantaneously” as a one-way point of motion on the timeline.
Every shadow that appears on a solar household is an “instant” point.
Any effort to travel in time will be utopian in science, because we have been traveling in time: every moment is unique, and we “travel” from the unique landmark. from one to another.
Also in this way, the past does not exist anymore because time is not associated with reality. Nor does the future exist, because the future only forms when ALL POSSIBILITIES “must” take place. Only the concept of “immediate” exists, only the moment you are experiencing is acknowledged.
This concept wipes out the ability to travel through time, but if successful, it sometimes gives us another ability to be more efficient. Quantum mechanics is built on inexplicable concepts, but has the potential to give you the power of relative time travel – changing the space around you to travel long distances without aging. gone by the influence of time. This dream is still far away, because the gap between quantum mechanics and classical physics is still far away.
Professor Gisin thinks that intuitive mathematics can help us get our hands on this superpower. In his words, this mathematical perception will be more like the reality we are experiencing. He wrote in the report:
“Physics can be successful if built on intuitive mathematics, even if one loses its connection to predetermined mathematics. Contrary to predictions, I bet the next physics hypothesis would be more abstract than quantum theory, but would be closer to human experience.”.
