Quantum mechanics from first principles
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
Abstract: Quantum mechanics is derived from the principle that the universe contain as much variety as possible, in the sense of maximizing the distinctiveness of each subsystem. This is an expression of Leibniz's principles of sufficient reason and the identity of the indiscernible. The quantum state of a... read more

Time, cosmology and quantum foundations
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
Abstract: I argue that quantum mechanics cannot usefully  be extended to a theory of the whole universe, so the task of quantum foundations is to discover that cosmological theory which reduces to quantum mechanics when restricted to small subsystems of the universe.  I argue that that cosmo... read more

Time Reborn
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
Abstract: What is time?  Is our perception of time passing an illusion which hides a deeper, timeless reality?  Or is it real, indeed, the most real aspect of our experience of the world?  Einstein said that "the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly per... read more

Does Time Emerge from Timeless Laws, or do Laws of Nature Emerge in Time?
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
Abstract: The history of physics, from Galileo's spatialization of time to Einstein's block universe, and on to Julian Barbour's timeless quantum cosmology, tells a story by which time is demoted from a fundamental aspect of experience to an emergent illusion in a world held to be fundamentally timeless. The ... read more

A real ensemble interpretation of quantum mechanics
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
Abstract: A new ensemble interpretation of quantum mechanics is proposed according to which the ensemble associated to a quantum state really exists: it is the ensemble of all the systems in the same quantum state in the universe. Individual systems within the ensemble have microscopic states, described by be... read more

On the reality of time and the evolution of laws
Speaker(s): Lee Smolin
