The Cosmological Challenge The great theories of the 20th-century physics - relativity, quantum theory, and the standard model - represent the highest achievements of physical science, and are confirmed to amazing accuracy! However, they cannot be considered as fundamental, since each divides the world into the box and the rest of the universe, which is implicitly there by giving us rulers and clocks to measure space and time in the isolated system.

Experimental physics is the study of truncations of nature. Theoretical physics designs effective theories, considering a box subset of degrees of freedom and ignoring the rest. Galaxies But there is no such thing that is isolated from influence by the rest of the universe.

Principle of no isolated systems. Decoherence decorrelation produces the transition from a quantum to a classical system through multiple interaction. The cosmological challenge is to formulate a background-independent theory that can be applied to the whole universe, which is not part of a vastly larger system.

Principles for a New Cosmology The new theory must contain what we already know about nature, be scientific, i. No chains of explanation can point outside the universe, Principle of explanatory closure, for which we rule out fixed background structures. All influences or forces should be mutual, Principle of no unreciprocated action, saying that every entity in the universe interacts with everthing else relationalism.

Two things that have the same relationship with everything else in the universe must actually be the same thing, Principle of identity of the indiscernables Leibniz. There can be no fundamental symmetries in nature, as they arise from treating a subsystem of the universe as if it were the only thing that existed. Symmetries are approximate, and so are the laws of energy, momentum and angular momentum conservation!

The laws of nature are results of evolution, which implies that time is real! The Evolution of Laws The new cosmological theory: Should explain the choices of laws and initial conditions and be testable by doable experiments and even vulnerable to falsification Popper.

The theory in which laws evolve is called cosmological natural selection Smolin, and based on the theory of population biology. This requires: A space of parameters that vary among a population genes in biology, parameters and constants in physics ; A mechanism of reproduction quantum gravity does away with the singularities where time begins and ends; black holes lead to the birth of new universes ; Variation, each time a new universe is created there is a small random mutation change in the parameters , , m of the laws; Difference in fitness, which is a measure of how many black holes a universe creates; Typicality, assuming that our universe is a typical member of the population of universes.

Laws will change in time as the population evolves. The resulting parameter variations can lead, e. Quantum Mechanics and the Liberation of the Atom Taking time as fundamental and real may help resolve the puzzle of making sense of quantum theory, which is the most successful theory yet invented but is probabilistic and seems incomplete, and it is a challenge to our attempts to comprehend the world.

## Smolin Time Reborn

Incompatibility non-commuting variables such as position and momentum Entanglement compound systems are more than their parts; the origin of novelty Nonlocality entangled pairs of photons interact at a distance by nonlocal correlations Smolin believes that the strange features of quantum theory arise because it is a truncation of an unknown cosmological theory, and reality of time makes a new formulation possible.

The principle of precedence sees the laws of nature as habits developed over time C. The free-will theorem says: Suppose there is a sense in which two experimenters are free to choose which measurement they make on their atoms.

Then the response of the atoms to the measurements is free in the same sense Conway and Kochen! Quantum mechanical systems have maximal possible freedom from classical determinism by their being probabilistic. The Battle between Relativity and the Quantum The principle of sufficient reason is central to the program of extending physics to the scale of the universe as a whole, because it sets a goal of discovering a rational reason for every choice that nature makes.

The apparently free, uncaused behaviour of individual quantum systems presents a formidable challenge to that principle.

Could there be a deterministic cosmological theory that gives rise to quantum physics whenever we isolate a subsystem and ignore the rest? One example is the hidden variables theory by deBroglie and Bohm, which today is persued by few people. In quantum mechanics a special status is assigned to time in the sense that it is treated as a classical background parameter, external to the system itself.

All measurements of observables are made at certain instants of time and probabilities are only assigned to such measurements.

Expulsion of Novelty and Surprise Laplace onces claimed that if he were given the precise positions and motions of all atoms in the universe. Nonlinear theory tells us that small changes in initial conditions are amplified exponentially to very big changes in outcome. Relativity and Timelessness I Einstein assumed in that the speed of light is universal nothing can travel faster than light in vacuum and everybody measures that same speed.

The block universe describes the whole history of the universe as a mathematical object which is timeless! It marries space and time in the 4-D Minkowski spacetime. Observers in motion with respect to each other will reach different conclusions about whether two events are simultaneous or not when those events are distant from each other.

You must describe what a clock is and how it works. There is no way to tell who moves and who is at rest. Two fundamental concepts stem from special relativity: The only meaningful way to define time is to stipulate how to measure it.

Relativity and Timelessness II future time Block-universe or spacetime Minkowski diagram with Region resting frame causally x. Lucas philospopher: Jun in line Kaunas. Only to the gaze of my conciousness. Litauen H. Weyl mathematician: Nov in Elmshorn happen. Minkowski mathematician. It fails to account for the passage of time.

Heavy and inertial masses are equal 2. Equivalence principle: When you fall freely you can not feel your motion! Objects falling in a gravitational field move along geodesics.

Gravity is equivalent to acceleration 3. In a local inertial system satellite laboratory special relativity applies. All bodies fall with the same acceleration.

Like in Newtonian also in quantum physics. Quantum Cosmology and the End of Time I Many of us think the purpose of science is to describe how nature really is — to give a picture of the world that we can believe would be true. Niels Bohr: The purpose of a scientific theory is not to describe nature but only to give us rules for manipulating objects in the world and a language we can use to communicate the results.

Can we apply quantum theory to the whole universe? The quantum state gives us only probabilities. Mielke with John Wheeler right theory of quantum gravity. Weyl in Kiel Then the quantum state of the universe is frozen. Because there is no clock outside the universe.

The universe can have zero total energy if the total gravitational potential energy holding its parts together exactly cancels all the positive energy in the universe. The Wheeler—DeWitt equation is an attempt to meld the ideas of quantum mechanics and general relativity. It simply is! There is a negative amount of energy in any system held together by gravity.

Carnap reported a conversation with Einstein on time. Science should include our experience of the world as a flow of moments. To do so is to commit a fallacy. Applying the Newtonian paradigm to the universe as a whole is an impossible task! No theory based on the Newtonian paradigm can answer these questions: Within the Newtonian paradigm these questions will remain mysteries forever!

We need a new theory in which the reality of time is a central element! Decoherence decorrelation produces the transition from a quantum to a classical system through multiple interaction. Galaxies But there is no such thing that is isolated from influence by the rest of the universe. The Cosmological Challenge The great theories of the 20th-century physics.

One example is the hidden variables theory by deBroglie and Bohm. The expansion rate can be taken for a universal clock. This time can be called a preferred global time. If time is real. This implies a physical notion of simultaneity that includes distant events and. Loop quantum gravity LQG describes space as a dynamical network of relationships.

Areas of surfaces are also quantized on the natural Planck scales. The Emergence of Space I Nothing is more commonplace than space. Relativity theory merged space with time.

## Time Reborn

Spin network and quantum foam. According to LQG regions of space can only have discrete values. Thus we can develope very different ideas of space emergent and time. But the hypothesis of the reality of time frees time from this false unification.

The spin-foam model gives a quantum version ot the block- universe picture. Space will likely turn out to be an illusion. Disordering locality by introducing nonlocal links geometrically implying higher than three spatial dimensions may generate inumerable new connections.

The Emergence of Space II Both loop quantum gravity and string theory suggest that quantum gravity can be understood as describing regions of spacetime with boundaries. Their strongest results are achieved in the context of physics in a box. In LQG there are about nodes in the quantum foam. Might the universe be full of such nonlocal connections? Triangulation of a smooth surface.

Bohm Another way to fix a preferred family of observers is the CMB which is coming at them at the same temperature from all directions in the sky.

The relativity of motion is a symmetry principle of GR, yet some solutions of theories can break their symmetries! But Einsteins theories of SR and GR rule on smaller scales experimentally confirmed in our solar system. If time is real, in the sense of a real present moment, there is a boundary all observers can agree on between the real present and the not yet real future. This implies a physical notion of simultaneity that includes distant events and, indeed, the whole universe!

This time can be called a preferred global time.Leer menos.
