Potent should be “potentia” this website has a “spell checker” that deleted the “ia” and there is no “edit” option.

I respectfully disagree with the premise of this paper. It is incomplete in the sense of Einstein in his debate with Bohr – not yet settled. I do agree that Heisenberg’s potent are physically real fields, but they are not a complete description of reality that also has classical matter dynamical degrees of freedom independent of h. This picture…[Read more]

(Submitted on 29 Sep 2016)Quantum Physics
A paramount topic in quantum foundations, rooted in the study of the EPR paradox and Bell inequalities, is that of characterizing quantum theory in terms of the spacelike correlations it allows. Here we show that to…[Read more]

“Mereological nihilism is the thesis that composition never occurs. Some philosophers have thought that science gives us compelling evidence against nihilism. In this article I respond to this concern. An initial challenge for nihilism stems from the fact that composition is such a ubiquitous feature of scientific theories. In response I motivate…[Read more]

Ruth misunderstands my claim. The Sutherland actionreaction postquantum violation of the Born rule vanishes in the limit where the Glauber coherent state solutions apply to the real world. Therefore, her argument is logically inconsistent.

I think this paper is not correct. Of course, if one tries to violate the Born rule using only the equations of orthodox quantum theory, then one will get spurious results like an apparent violation of energy conservation. However, it is quite obvious from Rod Sutherland’s retrocausal “weak measurement” completely relativistic Lagrangian…[Read more]
