ABSTRACT

This paper states and gives three applications of a novel ‘Presentist Fragmentalist’ interpretation of quantum mechanics. In a cognate paper it was explicitly shown this kind of presentism is consistent with special relativity and that it has implications for how to understand time as it relates to the Big Bang (Merriam in Axiomathes, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10516-022-09623-5, 2021). In this paper we narrowly focus on three applications. These are surely the most important conundrums for any proposed interpretation of quantum mechanics: Schrodinger’s Cat, Bell non-locality, and the Born rule. It will be shown that these can be handled in a consistent and intuitive way. More... »
