We bring out the fact that the essential new quality implied by the quantum theory is nonlocality; i.e., that a system cannot be analyzed into parts whose basic properties do not depend on the state of the whole system. This is done in terms of the causal interpretation of the quantum theory, proposed by one of us (D.B.) in 2952, involving the introduction of the “quantum potential.” We show that this approach implies a new universal type of description, in which the standard or canonical form is always supersystem-system-subsystem; and this leads to the radically new notion of unbroken wholeness of the entire universe. Finally, we discuss some of the implications of extending these notions to the relativity domain, and in so doing, we indicate a novel concept of time, in terms of which relativity and quantum theory may eventually be brought together.

John Horgan investigates a wide range of fields — chemistry, physics, psychology, radiology, theology, and more — to narrow the gap between reason and enlightenment. As both a seeker and an award-winning journalist, Horgan is uniquely positioned to profile researchers and their work.

SF Books Showing Humanity at its Best? | Science Fiction Fans This topic is currently marked as "dormant"—the last message is more than 90 days old. You can revive it by posting a reply. 1 zinschj Edited: Mar 25, 2011, 3:00am I'm looking for recommendations on SF books that are the opposite of post-apocalyptic or distopian stories --stories that show humanity at its best or, at least, a world in which all human existence is elevated beyond basic survival.

It handles the differences in perspective of the young cancer suffers & their parents in a very sensitive way. It highlights the way that these young people have to take their parents' feelings, emotions & reactions into account as well as their own feelings & life choices. the whole book is an emotional roller coaster, there is laughter ( the humor is very dry), & tears, it is very thought provoking & in the end it is a triumph for the human spirit.
