I have had a long-held desire to pen something about the image of the universe.
When I say 'the universe', I am not only talking about merely the physical universe, but from the standpoint in which the universe and human beings are inseparable.
I have already published some video lectures on this topic, so I intend to expand on those lectures and further elaborate on some of the concepts raised there.
Having had a special interest in the universe since childhood, I wanted to know more about the universe and human beings, and so I specialised in physics at university. However, looking back, at that point in my life now I realize that, though I enjoyed the study of physics, I did not have a coherent and systematic understanding of it.
My knowledge was too immature to make any expansions in the field, and there were a great many things I did not understand. But in hindsight, "Not pretending to know what I didn't, and simply admitting that I didn't understand something when I didn't" was a fine way to think.
I continued to be interested in the progress of physics beyond that stage in life, and now I am finally able to comprehend some of the things that I couldn't understand then.
My 11 years of experience working as a researcher at a national university research institute, in a field that borders the studies of engineering and medical science, has given me confidence that physics can be the basis of all disciplines.
Naturally, it was there that I learned how to conduct research and write papers, however, I also learned that the position of an academic researcher carries the risk of being excluded or being treated as eccentric if one does not conform to the prevailing common sense of the time. This knowledge, along with an awareness of the evident problems at the time, would stand me in good stead in life.
I went on to set up an IT company and in the course of my corporate activities, conducted research and development mainly in the field of image processing along with researching the mechanisms of the human brain. So as a corporate manager, I continued to make deep contributions to society.
When you are involved in the running of a company, whether you want to or not, you have to create an organization, take responsibility for the finances, deal with governments and society at large, and this experience taught me a great deal about life.
Through my corporate management experience and my research in image processing, I became more and more closely connected with the image of the universe I was seeking.
And yet, of course, my main concern has always been the relationship between the universe and human beings, the establishment of an image of the universe and knowledge of its origins.
I have always been conscious of the problem of the image of the universe and the relationship between the universe and human beings, and I have had various supernatural experiences, that accumulated over several decades, and eventually the concepts I had been warming up to started to fit together naturally in my mind.
I found that I was living my life based on this image of the universe and spent my life interpreting this image of the universe. And I feel that this interpretation would be a great help for the reader as well.
That is why I believe I am ideally qualified to write about this expansive topic.
Hence, I felt that it was time to consolidate my findings and began to write what became this book. As I started to write, the writing process progressed surprisingly smoothly, so I decided to continue to the end.
In this book, I will describe a theory that I named the 'Many-Worlds Universe Genesis theory' that concerns the stages before and after the emergence of the Many-Worlds Universe.
And this 'Many-Worlds Universe Genesis theory' that I propose, is very different from the conventional Many-Worlds Theory, and it shares commonality only in the aspect of there being "a universe with many worlds".
I have arrived at this image of the universe as a result of my systematic study of it, based on my many years of observation and various experiences.
As I began to write, a sudden process of resolutions and multiple new connections began to consolidate. Experiences and circumstances suddenly became relevant and had significant implications.
At first glance, the world of physics seems to be a neat and consistent field, but in fact there seem to be several contradictions that cannot be solved by a mere extension of current theories, and which deviate from logic.
By looking deeply into the areas where the logic of physics seems to break down, we can sometimes discover a gateway to the world of consciousness.
In this book, I will try to find the connection between physics and the world of consciousness by examining some of these paradoxes.
Many readers, however, are not accustomed to discussions that take us from the world of physics and into the wider world of consciousness. So, the author has had to prepare from scratch a way of constructing an argument about the intersection of the world of physics, which we think of as being external ourselves, and the world of consciousness, which we think of as an internal pursuit.
If you read this book, please pick up only the parts you can comprehend, and just let go of the parts you cannot. I would like you to keep your awareness of the issues in discussion as we progress, and if you get confused, take a break, let it mature for a while, and then read it again, so that you can eventually understand it as a series of connected concepts.
I have tried to keep this book interesting even for anyone who may feel they have an ineptitude in the field of physics.
I have tried to keep some of the technical words and phrases that appear in the book to a minimum, but on first reading, it would suffice to just get a feel for the subject matter.
I use many illustrations and diagrams and explain the same concepts many times from various points of view, defining new words as I write. Each time a new word or phrase is defined, the new word or phrase will deepen the discussion one step at a time, and the discussion will switch back and thus proceed in a back and forth like movement, so that the reader can deepen his or her understanding one step at a time.
Truth cannot be expressed in words nor does it lie in theories, so we cannot state that this is the truth as is, but an aspect of truth, which, if presented to the world making, use of theoretical and universal expressions, can bring hope for a confused humanity.
○First, it is vital to understand the achievements of modern physics.
Let us do a quick review of the history of physics.
There are the well-known Special Theory of Relativity (1905) and the General Theory of Relativity (1915-1916) by Einstein.
Einstein was one of the founders of modern physics from a macroscopic point of view, fundamentally changing our methods and ways of thinking about physics. On the other hand, Einstein was also involved in the development of quantum mechanics from a microscopic point of view and laid the foundations for modern physics with the duality of particles and waves, the uncertainty principle, and the Schrödinger equation. In addition to Einstein, Poincaré, Schrödinger, de Broglie, Dirac, among others established modern physics.
It should be noted, however, that even in the present day, the integration of macroscopic and microscopic physics has not been achieved.
There is a system of equations dealing with the universe that physics has arrived at over the last hundred years. It has been summarised as the Standard Model.
The Standard Model describes the world as consisting of four subatomic particles (electrons, neutrinos, and two quarks) and three forces (the electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear force, and the strong nuclear force). According to this Standard Model, modern physics interprets the universe since the Big Bang as follows.
"The universe came into being according to a blueprint, in the form of God, and was initially perfectly symmetrical according to the blueprint. The symmetries are rotational symmetry, translational symmetry, Lorentzian symmetry, gauge symmetry, non-commutative gauge symmetry, and chiral symmetry. In these symmetries, all elementary particles had no weight and flew apart. However, due to "spontaneous symmetry breaking" caused by the Higgs boson and other particles, subatomic particles were given weight. As a result, subatomic particles coalesced, atoms were formed, stars began to shine, and galaxies were formed."
I have decided that I am not in a position to evaluate the views of modern physics. So I intend to write this book in keeping with this stance and without deviating from my own scope. I am not sure, however, that I will be able to maintain this stance to the end.
So often there will be instances where I speak using the words and terminology of others, not my own.
The Standard Model, the culmination of human knowledge, has yet to address the question of gravity.
Moreover, according to Planck's theory, published in 2013 and still at the hypothetical stage, dark energy and dark matter account for about 68.38% and 26.8%, respectively, of the total mass of the universe. Yet the Standard Model does not account for this at all.
In other words, the Standard Model still explains only a small part of the universe and can be overturned at any moment. And the physicists involved in its research are not content to accept it as a complete theory, they want it to fail and purposefully look for areas in which it can be proven to fail.
I am writing based on an assumption that the reader is not deeply familiar with physics. Therefore, I will try to explain, where possible, any new concepts that appear from time to time.
But first of all, I would like you to know that the study of quantum mechanics, which deals with microstructures, starts with the Schrödinger equation. It is the first equation that appears in the subject of quantum mechanics at university, and it is the one that makes students very confused. And I was puzzled by it too. In fact, I still remain in that same state of bewilderment from that time.
So, if the basic premise of the Schrödinger equation, which corresponds to this world with four independent variables (x,y,z,t), i.e. a four-dimensional world, is broken, then quantum mechanics will immediately collapse.
Therefore, the author's policy is to revisit the Schrödinger equation, which is the basic premise of quantum mechanics, and Dirac's equation, which was developed from it.
And next, I want to make it clear that the 'standard theory' - that is, modern physics - has no answer to the author's search for a relationship between the universe and consciousness.
First of all, whether the universe is indeed a four-dimensional world or not, it still begs the question of how much sense there is in pursuing symmetry in a four-dimensional world without first determining the real dimensions of the universe.
Secondly, the Standard Model is built independently, without taking consciousness into consideration. So at first glance, it would seem that there is no room for consciousness in modern physics.
Therefore, from a completely different point of view, the author will point out some contradictions in modern physics, to force a crack in the four-dimensional world, show the intervention of consciousness in it, and finally talk about a universe with consciousness as its central character.
I hope that one day we will be able to comprehend the wave functions that describe everything in the universe, including consciousness.
Just having an understanding of this knowledge is sufficient to carry out the discussion. We will deepen the discussion, adding new concepts as necessary.
