A Zero Energy Universe Scenario: From Unstable Chemical States to Biological Evolution and Cosmological Order

Abstract [en]

 A Zero-Energy Universe Scenario (ZEUS) is portrayed and its implications are examined and clarified. The formulation is based on the algebra of observables, e.g. the momentum-energy and their canonical conjugate partner space-time. Operators represent them in quantum theory and classical canonical variables in nonquantum applications. Conjugate operator/variable arrays impart a united edifice for a zero-energy universe scenario, which corresponds to using a non-positive definite metric for the manifestation of unstable states as recently employed in the field of chemical physics. Analogous formulations within a general complex symmetric setting provide a compelling analogy between Einstein s theory of general gravity and Gödel s first incompleteness theorem. This scenario brings together up-to-date theories in chemical physics with modern research in biology, physics, and astronomy. This unification establishes an edifice for the various arrows of time as well as authenticates Darwin s Paradigm of Evolution from the microscopic realm to the cosmological domain.
