The Relationship Between M-Theory and Mercator

“The key to learning is an awareness of where you lack understanding.”

James Pierce


When I wrote that true chance is quantum, I did so based on the core of quantum mechanics: in time, all possibilities will occur.  The definition of time is left for the next opportunity.

Following the path of exploring theories that are still alive, albeit weakly, imagine a theoretical physicist of the stature of Stephen Hawking.  Although a self-proclaimed positivist, Hawking had serious difficulties in making his masterful thinking flexible enough to consider multiverses within M-theory; until he was completely captured by its elegance and beauty.


Our perception of reality, or what I call Consensus, is a system that reflects the mechanical functionality of our senses combined with the interpretation of our minds.  The problem is that because we perceive reality in a very similar way -as if we were all watching the same film- we have a strong tendency to confuse the quality of this shared perception with absolute truth.

For example, on a flat map of the world, it is impossible to depict the entire earth, since the areas become larger as you move away from the equator, and the north and south poles are absent.  In 1569, Gerardo Mercator presented a cylindrical projection of the Earth made up of eighteen woodcuts which, when superimposed, show exactly the same scenario: they are Mercator's projections.

This is the M-theory, a set of theories belonging to the same family, and although there are marked differences between them, and they can only be applied in very specific contexts, their superpositions lead to the same conclusions.

So let's look at the work as a whole: M-Theory guarantees that our Verse is not Uni; that the Cosmos creates -out of nothing- Multiverses; each Verse has all the potentialities, including the presence or absence of life.

M-theory is innovative for its humility and recognition of the existence of the unknowable.
