Reality in the Context of Physics (Ricp): an Explanatory Framework: Bridging the Pitfalls of Category Error, Dispelling Paradox and Excluding Magic from Physics

Authors: Georgina Woodward

This work provides solutions to a number of long standing problems in physics, by identifying category error as an issue and providing an explanatory framework. Category error is indicated within Einstein’s work on relativity. Having addressed that, the associated paradoxes are dispelled. Other quandaries are considered, with the potential for category error and the explanatory framework in mind: Such as; the nature of time, the arrow(s) of time, causality, what is the future? Having proposed the need for an ontic, absolute, foundational reality there is relevant discussion of counterfactual definiteness and the law of non-contradiction. Discussion of true absolute relations in contrast to relations within ‘space-time’ images follows. A short note of caution on the risk of allowing magic into physics precedes a list giving the facts and problems in physics, demonstrating the need for an explanatory framework. The penultimate section, (before References), is the word definitions and key to abbreviations to be used in conjunction with the accompanying 5 diagrams that illustrate the explanatory framework. The framework impacts on many areas of physics. In particular relativity and QM; providing the ontic foundation necessary for both, allowing them to co-exist without contradiction. It also overlaps with other science areas in particular the biology and neuroscience of sensory perception.
