On Our Psychological Picture of the Universe ? The Unification of Physics Supports the Physical Theory of Determinism
Abstract: We are used to the thoughts that everything has a beginning and an end. We are trained by the surroundings of the world to have beginning-end theory always in the back of our mind. Everything we observe around us has a beginning and an end. All living beings have a beginning and an end. All non-living things of the world also fall into the same category. The beginning-end theory gives us psychological comfort that we are trained to be used to. The theory of general relativity is called low energy theory because its predictions are fairly accurate in low energy conditions only. So, it can be regarded as a good tool for partial theories which are sufficient to make accurate predictions in all but the most extreme situations. The same thing applies to the quantum mechanics and the Newtons classical theory of gravity. A completely separate identity is necessary before a beginning of anything. For example, every two people are not identical. Everybody has one and unique identity. Thus, everybody has a unique and separate beginning. Everybody has a beginning to perform specific tasks that are unique. A combination of many atoms that are combined to perform specific tasks throughout like respiration can be called intelligent life. Because, intelligent life has one and unique identity, thus, it has a unique beginning. Beginning is a relative word, but if anything that has beginning, it must have an end, that is, the end of the combination of many atoms that were doing specific tasks like respiration, is no more valid. The end is also a relative word. We extend the day to day experience of beginning-end theory with the help of our psychological imagination that the Universe must have a beginning (probably the Big Bang) and it must have an end (possibly the Big crunch). If somehow we can conclude that the Universe has a beginning and an end that resemblance our day to day experiences including our life, we are happy enough with the conclusion. It is as if we started our journey of about investigating the Universe with psychologically predefined conclusion that matches with the beginning-end theory. All physical theories are partial theories because they are valid only on limited observations in the limited or restricted part of the Universe. Then the ultimate unified theory of physics must be predicting everything accurately under all conditions which infers that the ultimate unified theory of physics must also be predicting our future deeds accurately. Thus the theory of determinism must be included at least if not a leading role in the formulation and quest of the ultimate unified theory of physics of the Universe.
