The Philosophical Quantum Mechanics of Aristotle

Here’s a concept that expands on the previous posts concerning the nature of thought. Suppose the phenomenal world is just a shared fantasy constructed from a framework of general concensus. If you get to the meat of relativity theory, how could it be anything but? If the collection of data via our five senses is nothing more than sensory information assimilated and processed through the filter of our minds then it goes to reason that our ultimate analysis is just the current version of our self-created world view. This, once again brings us back to the “here-now” position. I can’t help but also think about the brain hemispheres and Aristotle’s posterior & prior analytics.


Aristotle (Greek: Ἀριστοτέλης, Aristotélēs) (384 BC – 322 BC)

Aristotle’s writings on metaphysics have interesting parallels with eastern philosophies as well as modern cosmology and quantum mechanics as it relates to his concept of posterior and prior analytics. Posteriors being events that have occurred up to the present time frame that are comprised of “particulars”.

Prior analytics or “universals” as Aristotle coined them could possibly be our pure thought process before tainted into “particulars” …….. eh, probably not, but that sounds cool to me……
