Borges and Subjective Idealism in Relativity Theory & Quantum Mechanics

Victor Christianto, Florentin Smarandache


This paper is intended to be a follow-up to our previous paper with the title "Reinterpreting Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius: On the antirealism tendency in modern physics." We will give more background for our propositions in the previous paper. Our message here is quite simple: Fellow physicists and cosmologists should become more aware of the Berkeley idealism tendency, which can lead one to so many distractions instead of bringing us closer to the truth. We observe that much of the progress of modern physics in the last few decades only makes us as confused as before, but at a much higher level. In the last section, we will give some examples of how we can do better than did practices of physics in the past.
