Lee Smolin: ‘I am convinced that …

I like what Lee Smolin said about the limitations of quantum mechanics:

‘I am convinced that quantum mechanics is not a final theory. …. Quantum mechanics must then be an approximate description of a more fundamental physical theory. There must then be hidden variables, which are averaged over to derive the approximate, probabilistic description which is quantum theory.’

We come to a similar conclusion in the cordus paper on the seven flaws of quantum mechanics:

‘From the cordus perspective, the classical world does not emerge from the quantum world, nor is quantum mechanics the reality. Rather there is a deeper mechanics from which both emerge. Quantum mechanics only approximates some of the deeper behaviour, and even then only for a limited range of geometric scales. ‘ (p16) Why Does Quantum Mechanics not Scale Up?

We did not set out to address Smolin’s concerns at the beginning. Instead we simply wanted to see if it was possible to reconceptualise and thereby solve wave-particle duality of the double-slit. The resulting cordus concpet did that. And it turned out that it does a lot more.Now we can even explain why quantum mechanics is as good as it is, while simultaneously being wrong.

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks a lot!
