Quantum mechanics and relativity are derived from first principles by reframing the theories in terms of consciousness. This is done in response to Carlo Rovelli’s challenge in ‘Relational Quantum Mechanics’ which explains quantum mechanics as an information theory.
The emergent model reveals that objective reality can be understood as content in a universal mind, caused by a transcendental agency about which we can say little or naught. The model suggests that the objective universe comes into manifestation by imposing a mathematical limitation on the source of being. The model thus illuminates the limits of thoughts and the origin of natural law. It also shows that the notion that human awareness emerges as a result of brain activity alone, simply cannot be true.
The interpretation of quantum mechanics (QM) and the attendant reality question continues to be a topic of discussion amongst physicists. It is suggested that a simple, but surprising, resolution to the QM paradoxes can be found when reframing the entire discussion in terms of consciousness.
What emerges is that both relativity and quantum mechanics can be seen as mathematical limitations imposed on an infinite sea of being precipitating both consciousness (subject) and the universe (object). The mathematical limitations imposed on the creative sphere of being can be shown to be of such a nature that they cause an unambiguous, and apparently objective, universe to emerge.
Note that due to the subject areas covered this article can neither be labeled as pure physics, pure philosophy or pure psychology since it constitutes a synthesis of all three disciplines.
