From uncertainty principle via concept of special sciences to multi-level architecture of our world virtual reality.
Uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics is discussed from
point of view software optimization of our world that is virtual
reality as a tool for saving computational recourses and glue
up scientific disciplines describing our world at different levels
of detalization. From basic level that is atomic structure to
lower one with incorporated into quantum mechanics uncertainty
and to the higher with statistics of thermodynamic laws Architect
went from integers based mathematics for distinct objects of
atoms in molecule into formulas based ones for systems of uniformed objects.
The problem with modern science is that many its effects and
concepts cannot be explained in terms everyday experience. Actually
there are experiments in physics these been first time described
to neophytes will trigger sincere and in good face reaction that
it cannot be so. Professional scientists are trained to ignore
visible contradictions with straight logic accepting the fact
that objects on our level of perception behave in other manner
compare to micro particles. Initially atomic theory was based
on the idea of Democritus that if split object many times finally
you will get basic atom of it that cannot be divided any more
but will have all properties of the object. Idea is nice but
proven to be not entirely true. Property of basic elements of
reality is so differ from what we custom to that we even cannot
compare them because there is no standard to compare with.
Let’s start from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle that is a
basis of quantum mechanics. The uncertainty principle states
that pair of complementary variables of object (particle) cannot
be known with unlimited precision both in the same time. It introduces
ones again concept of observer into description of the objective world.
There are two possibilities about uncertainty principle: either
the world itself is constructed in a way that uncertainty feature
imprinted in its mechanism as its integral attribute or the imprecision
picture observers see in experiments reflects only on their ability
to exam reality but underling mechanism of nature is indeed hard determined.
One can argue that there can be alternative possibility is true
that combination of both uncertainty of world construction and
plus uncertainty of experiment because detector (observer) is
always interact with object it measures. One needs to catch fish
to learn its size by ruler making the fish stressed and motionless.
Nevertheless this idea changes nothing in principle for presented
alternative because offers just modification of first possibility
that world is constructed as floor in casino filled with gambling
slot machines. It is the choice between determinism and happenstancism
of our reality.
The word happenstancism should be antonym to determinism but
does not belong to general vocabulary because nobody can really
accept complete randomness of the world. Such fully random world
is unimaginable to exist at all. It could be the pure ugly chaos
but our world looks like nice tuned car, sort of. So we presume
that determinism is the fact but not reliable for predictions.
Sort of statement that everything had happened by the explicit
reasons but future we can predict with only certain probability.
Other words – past is fact, future is dark and darker the longer ahead.
The concept that reality itself contains uncertainty as integral
part looks the most logical presumption. It is strange notion
to connect behavior of the objective reality with presence of
observer. What was before any intelligence life existed in Universe?
No uncertainty principle at all?! Not too convincing to image
that with random act of creation of creature that from one point
is the part of the word but for instance it is can looks like
to see it as observer, sort of bystander.
The idea that our world is the software, numerical simulation
permits to explain uncertainty principles from point of view
that the Architect of the reality had limited computing resources.
There is the same reason we discussed as basic for incorporating
the special relativity principle in a world.
Uncertainty principle can be the base for multilevel construction
of the software numerically presented our world that is virtual
reality. It was being continues philosophical problem about existence
of special sciences. Can any scientific discipline behind physics
of elementary particles to be considered independent branch of
science producing its own laws these adequate described reality?
Obviously any scientific law cannot be in contradiction with
fundamental laws of physics. How we can construct reality that
will have high level independent scientific laws these will in
the same time in agreement with fundamental laws of behavior
of smallest particles? One of the solutions is to make fundamental
laws soft, producing not hard determined result but only probabilities.
The smaller particle the larger windows of uncertainty.
From point of view of software programmer at the most important
level of constructed system the mathematics of relations between
objects should involve integer numbers as much as possible. It
saves memory for description of the system and computation time
to calculate by given rules transformation from one system construction
to other in one time step. Other higher and lower levels of the
constructed system would be foundation for this basic level or
derivative from it.
It is interesting that our world as known from science is indeed
constructed in a way that there is one level that can be mostly
described in mathematics that use only integer numbers or rational
fractions these are as good as integers. It is science disciplines
describing atomic structure of crystals, simple inorganic and
organic molecules, macro organic molecules including basic of
biology and life as DNA molecules. For most cases the atomic
structure of molecule can be presented as square matrix that
contains integer numbers of chemical bonds binding two neighbor
atoms in structure. In some important and not too exotic as for
benzene molecule instead integer there could be rational fraction
valence describing bonds.
One can point out at existence of hydrogen bonds as counterexample
for the statement about applicability of integer mathematics
for description of molecular structure. It is valid but debatable
argument. Maybe hydrogen bond can be described as rational fraction
number similar as bond in benzene can be presented as 3/2. Or
hydrogen bonds belong to other, higher level of reality construction.
Knowing science one can be sure that there is numerous effects
belonged to waste space between atomic level dimensions of reality
and that is at human perceptive. We can image that Architect
constructed such complex system as our reality was not able to
foresee every single curiosity that would come out from specific
solution in its construction. Effects happen.
The all multiversity of our reality as we see it is coming from
almost infinite variations of molecular structures. It includes
life molecules these contain all genetic information about living
beings. The Architect of our world used these bricks to get rich
game field environment for players – living beings with soul.
As soon the Architect would come with solution for base level
– molecular structure It would face the task to support it with
rules on the lower level. It must invent chemical bonds.
Quantum mechanics explains how chemical bonds work. There is
completely other mathematics and even logic on the level molecular
chemistry and its base that is quantum mechanics. Architect did
not plan for effects of quantum mechanics to be ever used by
players. It didn’t care too much about to paint them by fine
brush making them hard to work with precision and even to be
easy to calculate. As soon chemical bonds effect has implemented
into the system the Architect finished this excise in emotional
exhaustion and mask up the imperfection of the construction with
uncertainty incorporated into structure of chemical bonds by
implementing random numbers generator normalized by wave function.
It was lame solution but good enough for long time until lately
a concept of numerical simulation of reality became common approach.
Now we realize that wave function is pure mathematics so maybe
it is calculations behind the curtain? Yes.
At scientific disciplines of higher level, when objects are larger
then molecules, the uncertainty principle used to explain a validity
and applicability for statistical description of molecular systems.
If any act of interaction between atoms is slightly uncertain
statistics formulas can be used with full assurance instead pure
event by event calculation.
So Architect construct out reality starting from the molecule
structure level that is integer mathematics based simulation
then expands it deeper and higher into formulas levels calculated
with inherited uncertainty that permitted to operate with areas
of large volumes saving computing resources.
