Time is an illusion, albeit a useful one in the macroscopic world. The illusion is generated by the statistical nature of thermodynamic laws, but at the most fundamental level, physical reality is timeless. Those, in a nutshell, are the answers given to the questions about the ontology of space and by: 6. believed that reality is indivisible and timeless. The work of these two philosophers, always evoke one of two results: it is written off as utter absurdity, or it is recognized as a stroke of brilliance. Ultimately however, one is forced to choose between denying the reality of “Becoming”, in which time and space are essentially equivalent. Get this from a library! Space and time, matter and mind: the relationship between reality and space-time. [Wolfram Schommers] -- In principle, the elements of space and time cannot be measured. Therefore, the following question arises: How are reality and space-time related to each other? In this book, it is argued on the. Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity, a new book by Carlo Rovelli, is an excellent overview of the current state of theories about Space and Time. First some basics - Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is the foundation of the spacetime model.
This book brings together eight essays which all deal with the time that allows for some answers to the nature of reality (of a variety of space-times) as conceived by both the authors of these essays as well as by space and time in order to talk about it (cf. e.g. Aurnague, Hickmann & Vieu ; Hickmann & Robert ). At the same. Spacetime Physics: Edwin F. Taylor, John Archibald Wheeler: : Books highly recommended. Why? You only need basic math to read it. It goes deep into the basic concepts. John A. Wheeler was the mentor of the great Richard Fe. Scientific American is the essential guide to the most awe-inspiring advances in science and technology, explaining how they change our understanding of the world and shape our lives. Time has direction, always advances. Time has order, one thing after another. Time has duration, a quantifiable period between events. To appreciate time is to feel the fabric of reality. I.
The quantum-mechanical idea of order contradicts coordinate order because Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle made a detailed ordering of space and time impossible. When you apply quantum theory to general relativity, at very short distances like ten to the minus thirty-three centimeters, the notion of the order of space and time breaks down.
