Relativity of Information Explains Quantum Criticality and Matter-Wave Duality

Authors: Ramzi Suleiman

The present article proposes an epistemic approach to relativity, termed information relativity theory. For this purpose we consider a physical system in which an observer receives information on measurements taken in another reference-frame moving with constant velocity v relative to observer's frame. Unlike existing ontic relativity theories, we avoided questions pertaining to the true state of Nature (i.e., as it is for itself). We only ask how physical measurements taken in the "moving" frame are transformed when they are received in the observer's "rest" frame. We specify that information is communicated using an information carrier with known velocity v_c (v_c > v). We make no other assumptions, thus our approach is completely epistemic. For systems of the above described type we derive the epistemic relativistic time, distance, mass, and energy transformations, relating measurements transmitted by the information sender, to the corresponding information obtained by the receiver. The resulting terms are simple and beautiful with several Golden Ratio symmetries. For β = v/v_c << 1, all the derived transformations reduce to Galileo-Newton terms. Provided that v_c > v the theory applies to all systems which could be described by the preparation described above, regardless of the modality and velocity of the information carrier, and the rest mass of the moving body. An essential feature of the theory is that the direction of relative motion is of crucial importance. The derived time transformation concurs with the original Doppler formula, renders the theory useful for relativistic cosmology. No less important the theory predicts that distancing objects will suffer length extension. At sufficiently high velocities the theory predicts that two bodies distancing from each other can maintain s spatial locality, a property which enables the theory to bypass Bell's theorem. We demonstrate the validity of the above conclusion by successfully explaining and reproducing quantum theoretic results for two key quantum phenomena: quantum phase-transition, and matter-wave duality.
