'Formative' Processes as Another Prior Generative
Three-fold pattern of Principle/Cause/Effect applicable globally?
The 6 degrees comprising virtual processes and propensity fields appear
in two groups of three, the two groups being 'virtual' and 'real' processes
But if we look at these two groups as part of a global three-fold pattern
of Principle/Cause/Effect, then virtual and real processes appear as the
'Cause' and 'Effect' degrees respectively! This suggests that
there is yet another degree to be discovered in physics: a kind of 'Principle'
We could make a picture, where I call the new degree the 'Formative
Degree' (to choose a name explained below):
Physicists have been trying very hard over the last several decades to
form a theory
of quantum gravity, a theory which in some way should reconcile
the two main theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity.
Another 'Principle' or 'Formative' degree?
The 'Principle' degree being postulated by extrapolation here is very similar
in function to that of the long-sought processes of quantum gravity!
- We may have the principled beginnings of a new theory that encompasses
- These are supposedly 'pre-geometric' processes which are time-dependent,
whose evolution produces the dynamical properties of curved spacetime.
- We should look for new physics (new theories and new experiments).
- Further discussion later.
