Some Remarks on the Theory of Relativity and the Naïve Realism
space is not Euclidean
time does not flow with the same speed in any part of the universe: the notion of contemporareity makes no sense and hence any distinction between past and future is meaningless
space and time are mixed together
there is an absolute constant (ħ) which fixes a priori the limits of our knowledge
the material world does not have any reality per se, but instead reality exists as consequence of the operation of measurement performed by an observer (at least at atomic level).
measurements determine not only the present and the future, but also the past (Delayed Choice Experiments).
