The science of quantum mechanics defines the evolution our universe in terms of the matf the ideas presented in this blog.hematical properties of the wave function which only becomes physical when interacts with an observer and “collapses” while Einstein defines it terms of the interactions of the physical properties of space=time. Therefore, to merge them one must show how the interactions of an observer in space-time cause the wave function to collapses and create the “reality” we call our universe.
One way of doing this is to use the fact that both their evolutions are controlled by a wave. For example, Relativity defines it in terms of the energy propagated by electromagnetic wave while Quantum Mechanics defines it in terms of the mathematical evolution of the wave function.
This suggests the wave function that governs the evolution of a quantum environment may be mathematical representation of the electromagnetic wave that governs evolution in our space-time universe.
One can use that commonality, the science of wave mechanics and the fact that Relativity tells us an electromagnetic wave moves continuously through space-time unless it is prevented from moving through time by someone or something interacting with it. The science of wave mechanics also tells us the three-dimensional “walls” of this confinement will result in its energy being reflected back on itself thereby creating a resonant or standing wave in three-dimensional space and causing it to be concentrated at the point in space where a particle would be found. Additionally, wave mechanics also tells us the energy of a resonant system such as a standing wave can only take on the discrete or quantized values associated with its fundamental or a harmonic of its fundamental frequency associated with a particle.
(The boundaries or “walls” of its confinement would be defined by its wave properties. If an electromagnetic wave is prevented from moving through time it will be reflected back on itself. However, that reflected wave still cannot move through time therefore it will be reflected back creating a standing wave. The wave itself defines its boundaries because if it cannot move though time it MUST STAND in place in the form of a standing wave called a photon. Putting it another way a particle is a wave that is moving ONLY IN time and NOT THROUGH time and space)
As was shown above one can merge the evolution of the wave function with that of space-time be assuming it is a mathematical representation of an electromagnetic wave because as was show above both are OBSERVED to collapse to form a particle when someone or something interacting with it.
Putting it another way one can use the established science of wave mechanics and the physicality observable properties of a relativistic universe to explain why the mathematical properties of the wave function collapses to create a physical particle in space-time while at that same time defining the physical “reality” behind the math of quantum mechanics.
