Musings from a Cosmology of Light #43: Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle
If a group of molecules is cooled to absolute zero so that no more thermal energy exists, the molecules will still continue to vibrate. This vibration is attributed to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. The equation above depicts such uncertainty in knowing any pair of attributes such as momentum (p) and position (x) at the atomic level.
In a Cosmology of Light though, there is the arbitration of possibility involving information at multiple layers of light. Information from layers of light that exist at speeds greater than ‘c’ precipitate in relatively slower-moving layers of light through the device of quanta. Such meta-layer information can be thought of as a presiding function that will fulfill itself by using any means at its disposal in the slower moving layer of light.
Such leeway in ‘using any means at its disposal’ appears as ‘uncertainty’ in the slower moving layer of light.
But further, as suggested in the piece on Schrodinger’s Wave Equation, ‘reducing’ the value of Planck’s Constant (h), already implies that another layer of light is operative. And so when interpreted in this manner, then Schrodinger’s Wave Equation is drawing attention to the arbitration involving multiple layers of light, while Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle is drawing attention to the fact that the process of materialization of the meta-level function can take place in different ways.
