After Physics


After Physics was another book by Dr. Albert, who I felt reading over again would be helpful. Basically he argues that any chance associated with quantum physics is exclusively with measurement, not a true indication that something randomly could happen. He methodically goes through recent arguments about chance and arrives at a similar conclusion as his first book, which is the only means for chance to exist in our world, and therefore allow for an indeterminate universe, is if the GRW theory is proven true. The GRW theory argues there is a randomness inherent in the wave length itself, causing it to collapse randomly on its own. The GRW theory also suggests there are many more dimensions than we perceive.

Here the philosopher and physicist David Z Albert argues, among other things, that the difference between past and future can be understood as a mechanical phenomenon of nature and that quantum mechanics makes it impossible to present the entirety of what can be said about the world as a narrative of “befores” and “afters.”
