A Zero Energy Universe Scenario: From Unstable Chemical States to Biological Evolution and Cosmological Order
2015 (English)In: Frontiers In Quantum Methods And Applications In Chemistry And Physics / [ed] Nascimento, MAC; Maruani, J; Brandas, EJ; DelgadoBarrio, G, Heidelberg: Springer, 2015, Vol. A29, 247-284 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
