Chalmers in The conscious mind, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1996; The character of consciousness, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2010) in light of a hyperintensional regimentation of...

An analogy for the relativistic quantum mechanics via a model of de Broglie wave-covariant æther

Mohammed Sanduk (University of Surrey) Based on de Broglie wave hypothesis and covariant æther, Three Wave Hypothesis (TWH) has been proposed and developed in last century. In 2007, the author found that the TWH may be attributed to a kinematical classical system of two rolling circles. Based on the model of two rolling circles and in 2012, the author showed...

New Submission: Reply to Marchildon: absorption and non-unitarity remain well-defined in the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation

I rebut some erroneous statements and attempt to clear up some misunderstandings in a recent set of critical remarks by Marchildon regarding the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation (RTI) in this Journal, showing that his negative conclusions regarding the transactional model are ill-founded.
