Isomorphism of Existing But Hidden Time In Quantum Mechanical Formalism and Human Consciousness

Franz Klaus Jansen


Time is thought to be inexistent in the formalism of quantum mechanics. But time can also become unobservable and hidden in classical physics and in human consciousness. All physical or societal laws show timeless invariance, indicating that time dependent movements can show timeless behaviour. Therefore timeless behaviour includes an unobservable form of underlying movements implying time. Movements in the present can be directly perceived and necessarily show time coordinates, but movements accomplished in the past can no longer be directly perceived and only leave traces of grouped movements, similar to animal tracks. Invariance of movements can only be found when movements are grouped together in traces and accomplished in the past. Then time can only be estimated and when necessary retrospectively associated to the traces. Time is no longer required, when different traces of movements are compared with each other. Nevertheless, invariant traces testify underlying regularly movements and therefore time, even if time is no longer observable in the traces. In a similar way physical formalism includes present, past and future of movements at a higher concentrated information level. Since only the present is observable, information including past and future becomes unobservable, thereby hiding time. Time is also hidden in the digit codes of music on registered CDs and becomes only observable again after back-transformation by a convenient device. The phenomenon of hidden time can be found in consciousness and in classical physics, but becomes dominant in quantum mechanics
