Foundational Questions Institute: Undecidability, Uncomputability, and Unpredictability Essay Contest (2019-2020) Support materials for the submission by Bruce Camber in April, 2020.
|Background: The FQXi challenge to engage the study of the concept of “Predictability” has been accepted. We begin what we hope will become a rigorous analysis and study. From our introductory comments and first impressions, hopefully a most rigorous analysis will follow.
 Predictability (Object). What is future? Our argument pulls the past-present-future together as the Now. It is defined by the deep integration of the Planck base units. It is fully dynamic and fully symmetric. It is in the face of Newton’s absolutes. The work of most authors in this arena appear to assume the commonsense logic that space and time, each by themselves, has a really real existence. Given the works of many authors within this domain, the first question to be asked is, “What are their de facto assumptions about space, time, mass, and energy?”
