A Non Dimensional Model of Reality

Michael E. Byrne


A model of reality is discussed in which the universe is finite but unbounded, and which lacks the special state of an initial singularity. In this scenario, a primordial void or zero dimension would exist eternally - providing a dimensionless basis for cosmogenesis. Such an underlying zero dimension would establish a holographic relationship between all points in space-time - which would provide a basis for many of the non local behaviors of quantum mechanics. A zero dimension would also provide a place for consciousness to reside as a necessary part of science - that of the observer - thus providing a basis for the observer effect, and resolving the problem of mind-body duality. In addition, a zero dimension would provide a conceptual basis for the use of renormalization and imaginary time in physics equations involving space and time - and would likewise provide a basis for equations of physics being time-reversal invariant.
