Causal Ubiquity in Quantum Physics

A Superluminal and Local-Causal Physical Ontology

Raphael Neelamkavil

A fixed highest criterial velocity (of light) in STR (special theory of relativity) is a convention for a layer of physical inquiry. QM (Quantum Mechanics) avoids action-at-a-distance using this concept, but accepts non-causality and action-at-a-distance in EPR (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen-Paradox) entanglement experiments. Even in such allegedly «non-causal» processes, something exists processually in extension-motion, between the causal and the «non-causal». If STR theoretically allows real-valued superluminal communication between EPR entangled particles, quantum processes become fully causal. That is, the QM world is sub-luminally, luminally and superluminally local-causal throughout, and the Law of Causality is ubiquitous in the micro-world. Thus, «probabilistic causality» is a merely epistemic term.

Chapter 14. Conclusion: Causal Ubiquity in the Micro-World


Section 13.4 above cites Mario Bunge on classical realism. We resume that discussion further. I suggest that classicism in microphysics is the cognitive attitude to the objects / processes of the physical world by which, without justification by mediate or immediate ontological commitment to causal processes in microphysics, one takes for granted in the classical manner in QM: (1) that the current level of observation, theoretical circumscription of distant and ever-more minute causation, and mathematical tools for description of entities and processes, etc. are most adequate, and (2) that objects / processes possess the sharp values of measurement that the scientific experiments attach to them from the viewpoint of the mesoscopic, microscopic, nanoscopic or any other level of depth of apparatus-based perception, cognition and judgment, from points of view achieved as ready-to-hand in ever higher infinitesimality of real wavicles. This classicism has been eschewed in this work.

This is the epistemological variety of merely empirical, merely experiment-based, instrumentalistic determinism that defeats theoretical acceptance of the more than apparent and evident causal determinations (influences) from the past, and infinitesimal determinations from within every such past process. These determinations have ingressed from beyond the object’s own near-infinitesimal determinations from beyond and also from the object’s inner near-infinitesimal depths. These have ingressed into the ontologically objectual level of present action of causality within a quanton that exists in extension-motion order and causally as a wavicle. This theoretical subsuming of causal roots in the causal ontological study of a quanton is termed...
