Essay Abstract

The unreduced solution to arbitrary interaction problem, absent in the standard theory framework, reveals many equally real and mutually incompatible system configurations, or "realizations". This is the essence of universal dynamic undecidability, or multivaluedness, and the ensuing causal randomness (unpredictability), non-computability, irreversible time flow (evolution, emergence) and dynamic complexity of every real system, object, or process. This creative undecidability of real-world dynamics explains all conventional "quantum mysteries", relativity postulates, cosmological problems, and the huge efficiency of high-complexity phenomena, such as life, intelligence and consciousness, giving rise to various extended applications, far beyond the critical limits of conventional science paradigm.

Author Bio

Andrei Kirilyuk is a theoretical physicist (since 1979) and former Senior Researcher at the Institute of Metal Physics, Kyiv, Ukraine (till 2020). He also worked in various laboratories in France (Paris, 1991-95). He is the author of the Universal Science of Complexity and studies its theory and applications to various real systems.

Dear Andrei,

You give very important ideas aimed at solving problems in fundamental science. It is obvious that the paradigm of the Universum as an integral complex process for all levels of its existence, your ideas give not only a way out of the modern crisis of understanding, but also aimed at solving specific problems of fundamental science. And it is extremely important! Your ideas are very close to my view of the Universum as an eternal holistic process of generation of meanings and structures.

I wish you success!

With kind regards, Vladimir

Andrei,

I can relate to your abstract reference: "high-complexity phenomena, such as life, intelligence, and consciousness, giving rise to extended applications, far beyond the critical limits of usual science paradigm." The mysteries, the unknowns are beyond the boundaries of easy discovery and will find solutions far in the future. I see the copenhagen interpretation as an orthodox observation hocus-pocus. As with your HJE concept being the closest approach of classical mechanics to quantum mechanics, I note studies that seem to be accomplishing such a tie: https://phys.org/news/2020-01-strange-metals.html. My essay seems to tie in with a number of your concepts. I hope you get a chance to check it out: https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3396.

Thank you for your interest, Jim. I have looked through your essay, which provides a general overview of modern science achievements and problems around the "3Us". As to the link with my essay, I do propose a rigorously substantiated unified solution to major problems of usual science paradigm, with the new, constructive role of the 3Us and well-specified origin of their "negative" status in the conventional science framework. I am probably too impatient for waiting with it till "far in the future", but as you seem to be convinced that solutions should exist and can be found, we are basically on the same wavelength.

A new era dawns.  Old questions become quaint and historical.  Is the whole community ready?  Or is physical reality too dangerous for our collective understanding at this time?

Answering your questions, Sherman, the community is not ready, and the new understanding is considered dangerous, even when the limits of old understanding become evident and destructive. Nevertheless, some people may be more ready than others. From my part, I propose concrete new solutions of proven efficiency and rigour for the "new era". But the new progress can really start if at least some part of "collective understanding" really wants it (rather than infinite discussion of the "limits of science"). Apparently, nice life is too dangerous for progress.) It remains to hope for a magic leap of consciousness, as it occurred several times before on this planet (referring to your essay here). Otherwise, the new era emergence is not guaranteed, however "necessary" it may seem theoretically to some of us... Thank you for your interest and your motivation.

Dear Andrei,

Glad to read your work again.

I greatly appreciated your work and discussion. I am very glad that you are not thinking in abstract patterns.

"These causally complete versions of the three kinds ofinteraction processes at the level of interacting particles, atoms, and molecules lead toa greatvariety of promising applications in the extended, complex-dynamical nanobiosystem design and controlclosely related to life-science applications [6,7].Thekey point here, inevitablyignoredin the unitary science framework, is the unavoidableand ubiquitouspresence of strongdynamical chaos, simply because of the lowest position of this complexity level, implying proximity to the strong-chaos limit in theunified frequency-resonance criterion of chaoticitymentioned above".

While the discussion lasted, I wrote an article: “Practical guidance on calculating resonant frequencies at four levels of diagnosis and inactivation of COVID-19 coronavirus”, due to the high relevance of this topic. The work is based on the practical solution of problems in quantum mechanics, presented in the essay FQXi 2019-2020 “Universal quantum laws of the universe to solve the problems of unsolvability, computability and unpredictability”.

I hope that my modest results of work will provide you with information for thought.

Warm Regards, `

Vladimir

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for your interest and compliments. Your works seem to provide promising solutions, and I should read them in detail.

In the meanwhile, I wish you further inspiration in your research activity.
