A Categorical Reconstruction of Quantum Theory. (arXiv:1804.02265v4 [quant-ph] UPDATED) 上午9:26 | Sean Tull | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org We reconstruct finite-dimensional quantum theory from categorical principles. That is, we provide properties ensuring that a given physical theory described by a dagger compact category in which one may `discard’ objects is equivalent to a generalised finite-dimensional quantum theory over a suitable… Read more →

MOND vs. dark matter in light of historical parallels. (arXiv:1910.04368v1 [astro-ph.GA]) 2019年10月11日 星期五 下午8:32 | physics.hist-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Mordehai Milgrom MOND is a paradigm that contends to account for the mass discrepancies in the Universe without invoking `dark’ components, such as `dark matter’ and `dark energy’. It does so by supplanting Newtonian dynamics and General Relativity, departing from them… Read more →

 The Consciousness of Embodied Cognition, Affordances, and the Brain brain [x] consciousness [x] experience [x] phenomenal [x] add tag Latest Results for Topoi on 2017-9-21 5:00am Abstract Tony Chemero advances the radical thesis that cognition and consciousness are actually the same thing. I question this conclusion. Even if we are the brain–body environmental synergies that Chemero and others claim, we will not be able to conclude that consciousness… Read more →
