The connection among brain and fact is mostly perceived as an occasion that occurs in fact and generating at the same time an inner picture within the brain. So it happens two times, so that you can converse, and there's a one-to-one correspondence among the 2 events.

Within this notion, topic is embedded in area and time, and will be particular as "container-principle". This monograph emphasizes that the well known thinker Immanuel Kant denied this precept and he said that fact is mainly now not recognizable to a man or woman, and smooth organic evolution turns out to guide precisely to Kant's standpoint. in the conception of evolution, man's snapshot approximately fact in brain doesn't need to be entire and real within the feel of an actual replica, and it really is really effortless to acknowledge that even house and time shouldn't be parts of truth open air. inside of this notion, just a yes a part of truth, which the person wishes for getting to know lifestyles, is projected onto house and time, and we come to the so-called "projection principle". Then, spacetime defines the window to fact, resulting in a few interesting and crucial questions, a few of that are mentioned during this monograph. As is understood, present physics is principally in line with the container-principle. yet this monograph proposes that the projection precept is clearly greater and will support to unravel open-ended questions as, for instance, in reference to the character of time, the particle-wave duality, the cosmological consistent, and so on. in regards to the statistical habit of topic, Einstein's assertion God doesn't play cube should be visible in a brand new mild, but in addition Feynman's basic perspective on quantum thought that it can't be understood by means of guy. notwithstanding, traditional quantum idea is clearly now not a constant framework as in step with the projection precept. The time period global equation is seriously probed during this monograph.

Whilst this vintage textual content was once first released in 1935, it fulfilled the target of its authors "to produce a textbook of functional quantum mechanics for the chemist, the experimental physicist, and the start scholar of theoretical physics. " even though many that are academics this day as soon as labored with the booklet as scholars, the textual content continues to be as worthy for a similar undergraduate viewers.

In the case of the container principle (realized, for example, in Fig. 3) the real material bodies are embedded in space and time, and there are of course no geometrical positions. This situation reflects the world outside within the container principle. The world outside is not static, but there are dynamic and evolutionary changes, and these processes take place without specific actions of the observers. The execution of such changes, done by nature itself, provides the minimum information about space and time.

This is definitely not fulfilled within the frame of Newton’s mechanics and also not in connection with the other theories of conventional physics, but within “projection theory”. More details will be given below.

Here the bodies move through space with constant velocity.

Clearly, space-time and its basic elements x, y, z and τ can only appear in the inner world and they do not belong to the elements of the world outside. That is, the container principle is obviously an unrealistic conception. The coordinates x, y, z at time τ are exclusively the elements of a “fictitious net” which the observer intellectually puts over the image in front of him. Thus, space and time, constructed in this way, can never be the source of physically real effects. That is all what we can say about the space-time elements x, y, z and τ.
