  • The talk addresses a philosophical comparison and thus interpretation of both theorems having one and the same subject:
  • The absence of the “other half” of variables, called “hidden” for that, to the analogical set of variables in classical mechanics:
  • These theorems are:
  • John’s von Neumann’s (1932)
  • Simon Kochen and Ernst Specker’s (1968)

  • A formal model of metaphor is introduced. It models metaphor, first, as an interaction of “frames” according to the frame semantics, and then, as a “wave function” in Hilbert space
  • The practical way for a probability distribution and a corresponding wave function to be assigned to a given metaphor in a given language is considered
  • A series of formal definitions is deduced from this for: “representation”, “reality”, “language” “ontology”. All are based on Hilbert space
  • A few statements about a quantum computer are implied:
    • The so-defined reality is inherent and internal to it
    • It can report a result only “metaphorically”
    • It will demolish transmitting the result “literally”, i.e. absolutely exactly
    • A new and different formal definition is introduced as a few entangled wave functions corresponding to different “signs” in different language formally defined as above
    • The change of frames as the change from the one to the other formal definition of metaphor is interpreted as a formal definition of thought

  • How should skepticism refer to itself?
  • The classical example might be the doubt of Descartes, which led him to the necessary obviousness of who doubts
  • The formal logical structure is the same as the “antinomy of the Liar”
  • That new interpretation of it can be called “antinomy of the Skeptic
  • Descartes resolved it by introducing the meta-position and furthermore defining the “Self” just as that meta-position allows of any other position including that of doubt





The establishment of universal history requires to be understood what time is •Time is the transformation of the future into past by the choices in the present •History should be grounded on that understanding of historical time, which would include the present and future rather than only the past

AISB08wMünchen1 (paper)

Quantum information is equivalent to that generalization of the classical information from finite to infinite series or collections • The quantity of information is the quantity of choices measured in the units of elementary choice • The qubit is that generalization of bit, which is a choice among a continuum of alternatives • The axiom of choice is necessary for quantum information: The coherent state is transformed into a well-ordered series of results in time after measurement • The quantity of quantum information is the ordinal corresponding to the infinity series in question

The Einstein field equation (EFE) can be directly linked to the Schrödinger equation (SE) by meditation of the quantity of quantum information and its units: qubits
•One qubitis an “atom” both of Hilbert space and Minkovski space underlying correspondingly quantum mechanics and special relativity
•Pseudo-Riemannian space of general relativity being “deformed” Minkowski space therefore consists of “deformed” qubits directly referring to the eventual “deformation” of Hilbert space

Thus both equations can be interpreted as a two different particular cases of a more general equation referring to the quantity of quantum information (QI)
•They can be represented as the transition from future to the past for a single qubitin two isomorphic form:
SE: the normed superposition of two successive “axes” of Hilbert space
EFE:a unit 3D ball
•A few hypotheses to be ever proved are only formulated on the ground of the correspondence between the two equations in terms of quantum information or for a single qubit



A Philosophical Comment: on the Quantum Information Theory of Mass in General Relativity and the Standard Model The way, in which quantum information can unify quantum mechanics (and therefore the standard model) and general relativity, is investigated. Quantum information is defined as the generalization of the concept of information as to the choice among infinite sets of alternatives. Relevantly, the axiom of choice is necessary in general. The unit of quantum information, a qubit is interpreted as a relevant elementary choice among an infinite set of alternatives generalizing that of a bit. The invariance to the axiom of choice shared by quantum mechanics is introduced: It constitutes quantum information as the relation of any state unorderable in principle (e.g. any coherent quantum state before measurement) and the same state already well-ordered (e.g. the well-ordered statistical ensemble of the measurement of the quantum system at issue). This allows of equating the classical and quantum time correspondingly as the well-ordering of any physical quantity or quantities and their coherent superposition. That equating is interpretable as the isomorphism of Minkowski space and Hilbert space. Quantum information is the structure interpretable in both ways and thus underlying their unification. Its deformation is representable correspondingly as gravitation in the deformed pseudo-Riemannian space of general relativity and the entanglement of two or more quantum systems. The standard model studies a single quantum system and thus privileges a single reference frame turning out to be inertial for the generalized symmetry [U(1)]X[SU(2)]X[SU(3)] “gauging” the standard model. As the standard model refers to a single quantum system, it is necessarily linear and thus the corresponding privileged reference frame is necessary inertial. The Higgs mechanism U(1) → [U(1)]X[SU(2)] confirmed enough already experimentally describes exactly the choice of the initial position of a privileged reference frame as the corresponding breaking of the symmetry. The standard model defines ‘mass at rest’ linearly and absolutely, but general relativity non-linearly and relatively. The “Big Bang” hypothesis is additional interpreting that position as that of the “Big Bang”. It serves also in order to reconcile the linear standard model in the singularity of the “Big Bang” with the observed nonlinearity of the further expansion of the universe described very well by general relativity. Quantum information links the standard model and general relativity in another way by mediation of entanglement. The linearity and absoluteness of the former and the nonlinearity and relativeness of the latter can be considered as the relation of a whole and the same whole divided into parts entangled in general. 14_Penchev
