  • In Van Fraassen's Theoretical Analysis

    process. However, determinism was eventually discarded due to the “resolute acceptance of an irreducible indeterminism in nature” resulting from the new developments of quantum mechanics in the early 20th century. In its place came the “Common Cause Principle”, but this was soon too rejected due to its apparent incongruity with new quantum developments. And so, at this point, there remained only one completeness criterion: the “appearance-from-reality criterion”. This criterion stipulated that a…

  • Is A Space-Time Like A Mirror?

    Space-time is like a mirror. Nothing exists in the mirror, but mirror can manifest everything at all its points. However, any given point of a mirror can project only one entity to any given observer. No observer can see a point of mirror projecting more than one entity, but another observer located at a different angle will see a different entity at the same point. A mirror can manifest different physical entities at the same point, but not to the same observer. Space-time remains unaffected by…

  • How Does Jackson Pollock Define Knowledge In Tok

    Throughout all the areas of knowledge, from the arts to the natural sciences, defining knowledge produced with difficulty is difficult. there are many interpretations and different points of view to this statement. In the sciences, follow a specific scientific method and experimenting new things to create theories and new models required a certain level of intelligence and a high level of experimentation which depends on an elevated level of reasoning and experimentation. On the other hand,…

  • On Exactitude In Science Analysis

    influenced the shifting of societal norms. The works “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” and “On Exactitude in Science” by Jorge Borges epitomize the modernist shift by confronting the drastic scientific changes occurring during his time through surrealistic interpretations of reality and by raising different epistemological questions and the ethics of exploring the untamed recesses of science. During the time…

  • Lewis And Memong's Theory

    uses quantifiers in quantified modal logic range over all the possible objects (non-actual as well as actual). Whereas Lewis’s theory which holds the fundamental idea of the Many Worlds Interpretation has been used in many different ways in quantum mechanics but in particular the idea that every time a quantum experiment with different possibilities for outcomes is performed, all outcomes are obtained. But each in a different world, even if we are only aware of the outcome we have seen in our…

  • Karl Popper Falsification

    Karl Popper, as part of his career long attempt to support empiricism in science, proposed a doctrine of falsification. This directly contrasts verification, a central theme to logical positivism. A claim is empirically verifiable if observation and experimentation produce statements which logically imply the truth of the claim. Popper rejected the logical empiricists' ideas given that “verificationism” does not allow for claims within a universal scope to be subject to verification.1 This is…

  • Time Travel Research Paper

    How viable is time travel? Time; it organizes our lives and universe into an ordered series of moments. At first thought, time is one of the most fundamental aspects of our lives and the world we know. However, time is in fact incredibly subjective; everyone experiences this indefinable concept differently. Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity is based upon the idea of frames of reference. A frame of reference is where an observer is situated. In order to develop a universal concept of time…

  • Pursuing A Biology Class

    During three of my four years of high school I took various forms of a biology class, beginning with “Biology Honors” my freshman year and moving on to “IB Biology HL I” in my junior year, followed by “IB Biology HL II” senior year. I recall freshman year paying little to no attention to the lectures I received in class. Instead, I’d write down song lyrics in my biology notebook and talk to the friends sitting next to me. Every exposition on photosynthesis or Latin nomenclature sailed through…

  • Einstein's Accountability Of Education

    Einstein stated, “the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.” In 1928, a clique of physicists in Denmark formed a group known as the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The group stated that elementary particles possess a fundamentally indeterminate nature. In disagreement, Einstein responded to the claim with, “God does not play dice.” Niels Bohr, a physicists among to group retorted, “Albert, stop telling God what to do.” In 1939, German…

  • Albert Einstein Religion

    in science classrooms, jokingly sticking his tongue out, once stated, “The more I study science, the more I believe in God”. Einstein was a brilliant scientist most famously known for some of his discoveries such as the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and the theory of special relativity, otherwise known as the formula E=mc2. There are many theories that he developed that discuss the scientific concepts and scientific research about the truths behind life and nature. What Einstein means…
