Pregeometry and the Trans-Temporal Object

  • Mark Stuckey

Abstract

Fundamental theoretical physics is in a seriously stalled state. An underlying cause for the quagmire of theoretical physics is a tacit adherence to the dynamical perspective (dynamism). Dynamism holds that fundamental reality includes objects with trans-temporal identity and their causal interactions mediated by the four forces carried by their respective elementary particles as modeled in a local spacetime setting. Dynamism also assumes presentism - the spacetime manifold is foliated via an equivalence relation (simultaneity) and time is a one-dimensional linearly ordered quotient set induced by simultaneity.
