Quantization and Infinity as Intrinsic Properties: Entities Are Either Quantized or Infinite

Authors: Jose P Koshy
Comments: 4 Pages. The fifth paper based on Reality

In this paper, I put forth a philosophical argument that an entity can be either quantized or infinite, but not both; and that only a quantized entity can integrate into a system; the integration will be deterministic, and at each stage, the entity may have different emergent properties; the system thus formed settles in an infinite-loop in an infinite arena made up of non-quantized entities. Based on these, it is proposed that the universe is a system made up of matter, a quantized entity; and the arena is made up of space and time, non-quantized (infinite) entities.

Equally Aged Twins Under Different Accelerations

Authors: M. Gatta, P. Fragata
Comments: 8 pages

In a very recent book on the philosophy of space and time, Maudlin discusses Langevin's famous twin paradox, emphasizing the incorrectness of attributing the different agings of the two twins to the different accelerations they suffered. Here we extend the argument a little by considering to and fro rectilinear motions under finite accelerations (and continuous velocities).
