Natural law

Natural law is the uniformity of behavior which arises in consequence of the universe as quantum system containing the same information only once.

A universe from nothing

This site is dedicated to the proposition that the universe originated spontaneously from nothingness. Not a relative nothingness, consisting of a quantum soup plus natural law, as Lawrence Krauss suggests in his book “A Universe from Nothing”, but a nothingness devoid of matter, of space, of time, of natural law and even of mathematics. Absolute nothingness.

The Core of QO

The core of QO consists of the QO concepts which apply to all domains, and are therefore discussed separately. The core is what makes QO such a productive theory.

The initial quantum

QO starts with a simple conviction: the conviction that the initial state of the universe must be very, very simple. After all, if the universe has not always existed, it must have an initial state, and that initial state must have occurred spontaneously, which can be credible only if the transition from absolute nothingness to that initial state is simple.

The universe as a quantum computer

The universe is a quantum computer, in which each degree of freedom of a quantum contained in the universe corresponds to a unique register containing a single qbit. All change in the universe is the result of computations in this computer. The universe we observe is the user display of this computer, in much the same way as the screen of an ordinary computer displays information contained in it.

Mathematics describes the universe

Mathematics, as Galileo wrote, is the language in which God has written the universe. Whilst we may disagree as to whether there is a God that has anything to do with it, we may expect that anybody who has studied the fundamental laws of the universe will at least agree to the core of Galileo's statement, namely the proposition that natural law is essentially mathematical.

Words work

Ever since Plato, the ability of words to mean something has generally been considered to be the central problem of philosophy: when we observe a common characteristic of distinct objects - say, that each of them is red - in what sense, if any, does it make sense to say that this common characteristic is a distinct thing, that exists of itself independently of the objects of which it is a characteristic? This is more a theoretical than a practical problem. For we experience on a daily basis that the words we use have communicative and predictive value, by and large.

The QO concept of natural law

Natural law consists of the uniformity of behaviour which results from the universe containing the same information only once. 

Phenomenon explained : "There is natural law".

The most fundamental property of our universe is that it is subject to natural law. In other words, it behaves consistently, at least as far as we can tell. Any coherent theory of everything will need to account for the following:

Key findings: the core of QO

Genesis: The universe started when first quantum system and its behaviour popped into existence out of absolute nothingness. 

The quantum universe: The universe consists solely of quantum systems. Quantum mechanics applies equally well to information as to things, even though information of itself has no physical existence, i.e. has no spatial location. The universe is a single quantum system, consisting of a hierarchy of countless quantum systems.
