TitleMind and reality: The Space-Time Window
Author(s)Wolfram Schommers
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015.
Descriptionxvi, 306p.
Abstract NoteThe relationship between mind and reality is usually perceived as an event that takes place in reality and producing simultaneously an internal image in the mind. So it takes place twice, so to speak, and there is a one-to-one correspondence between the two events. Within this conception, matter is embedded in space and time, and can be designated as “container-principle”. This monograph emphasizes that the well-known philosopher Immanuel Kant denied this principle and he stated that reality is principally not recognizable to a human being, and modern biological evolution seems to lead exactly to Kant's point of view. Within the theory of evolution, man's image about reality in mind does not have to be complete and true in the sense of a precise reproduction, and it is relatively easy to recognize that even space and time should not be elements of reality outside. Within this conception, only a certain part of reality, which the human being needs for mastering life, is projected onto space and time, and we come to the so-called “projection principle”. Then, spacetime defines the window to reality, leading to a number of exciting and essential questions, some of which are discussed in this monograph. As is known, current physics is mainly based on the container-principle. But this monograph proposes that the projection principle is obviously more suitable and could help to solve open-ended questions as, for example, in connection with the nature of time, the particle-wave duality, the cosmological constant, etc. Regarding the statistical behavior of matter, Einstein's statement "God does not play dice" has to be seen in a new light, but also Feynman's general viewpoint on quantum theory that it cannot be understood by man. However, conventional quantum theory is obviously not a consistent framework as per the projection principle. The term “world equation” is critically probed in this monograph.

TitleFoundations of space and time: Reflections on quantum gravity
Author(s)Jeff Murugan (Ed.);Amanda Weltman (Ed.);George F. R. Ellis (Ed.)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxiv, 437p.
Abstract Notefter almost a century, the field of quantum gravity remains as difficult and inspiring as ever. Today, it finds itself a field divided, with two major contenders dominating: string theory, the leading exemplification of the covariant quantization program; and loop quantum gravity, the canonical scheme based on Dirac's constrained Hamiltonian quantization. However, there are now a number of other innovative schemes providing promising new avenues. Encapsulating the latest debates on this topic, this book details the different approaches to understanding the very nature of space and time. It brings together leading researchers in each of these approaches to quantum gravity to explore these competing possibilities in an open way. Its comprehensive coverage explores all the current approaches to solving the problem of quantum gravity, addressing the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, to give researchers and graduate students an up-to-date view of the field.

TitleShape of inner space: String Theory and the Geometry of the Universe's Hidden Dimentions
Author(s)Shing-Tung Yau;Steve Nadis
PublicationNew York, Basic Books, 2010.
Descriptionxix, 377p.
Abstract Notehat if you were told that we actually live in a 10-dimensional universe - that the leading theory of nature posits only 4 out of 10 are accessible to our everyday senses? This title unpacks the widely-held belief that these undetected dimensions are tightly curled in elaborate, twisted shapes called Calabi-Yau manifolds.
