History and Philosophy of Physics


The Map is not the Territory

Authors: Georgina Woodward

The important difference between variables in Object reality, reality existing independently of the mind, sometimes called physical reality has been discussed. Variables have been divided into terrain (t) and Map (M) variables. There has been categorization of terrain and Map variable groups. The groups have been given colour identifiers so that each variable representation can be accompanied by a tally or chart showing the variable groups to which it belongs. Variable profiles (single variable type profile ) and Terrain profiles ( Multiple variable type profile) have been introduced. Variation in Terrain profile over time has been likened to and contrasted with a wave-function and outcome probability distribution. The changing Terrain profile associated with the object under consideration provides a new way of thinking about what is happening. The concepts of truth, logic and knowledge have been discussed and it has been shown that old ways of thinking need to change in order to accommodate the expanded non partial perspective of Object reality. Including superficially contradictory states and non unitary 'property' values and states, at all scales not just the quantum scale. A measurable in physics is a relationship and not a property possessed by an object of itself.

Comments: 24 Pages. Includes one coloured diagram and coloured variable group identifiers.
