Symmetry Of Shifts In Time

It is interesting that the symmetry of shifts in time, and space, which is the basic assumption in doctordicks model, is labeled as opinion by him when you, Alex, express the same thing. In other words his model is based on symmetry. It is also inherently based on space and time. So we should all be in agreement. Our only differences are in interpretation.

In my opinion, general relativity establishes the reality of space and time, whereas quantum mechanics establishes the reality of invisible fields residing in space and time. So in that sense it all comes from mathematics.

But also in my opinion, quantum mechanics does not establish the reality of particles, and this is where I diverge from most scientists. Particles happen when fields (or quantum waves if you wish) collapse, but there is no theory to establish that reality. We can predict when it happens, but not what actually happens.

Keeping the spirit,

Richard
