 Grounding, conceivability, and the mind-body problem consciousness [x] mind [x] phenomenal [x] epistemic [x] add tag Latest Results for Synthese on 2018-2-01 12:00am Abstract This paper challenges the soundness of the two-dimensional conceivability argument against the derivation of phenomenal truths from physical truths (cf. 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...

Remarks on the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Louis Marchildon (Universite du Quebec) Kastner (arXiv:1709.09367) and Kastner and Cramer (arXiv:1711. 04501) argue that the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation (RTI) of quantum mechanics provides a clear definition of absorbers and a solution to the measurement problem. I briefly examine how RTI stands with respect to unitarity in quantum mechanics. I then argue that a specific proposal to locate the origin... Read more →

Branches of the Black Hole Wave Function Need Not Contain Firewalls. (arXiv:1712.04955v1 [hep-th])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2017-12-16 2:35am GMT Authors: Ning Bao, Sean M. Carroll, Aidan Chatwin-Davies, Jason Pollack, Grant N. Remmen We discuss the branching structure of the quantum-gravitational wave function that describes the evaporation of a black hole. A global wave function that initially describes a classical Schwarzschild geometry is continually... Read more →
