Theory of reality


1.1 Summery

The model of the real world in this context is governed by the laws of physics that consist of

all words. The model is akin to the theory of the real world, which is governed by three

physical laws:

  • That the relativity theory is not limited to human understanding of simultaneity, length, time, and that energy and mass bend the space-time domain. The theory also counts whenever there is a relation. In practice, it counts in all three cases. In this regard, therefore, the relativity theory could imply “in relation to.”

  • The quantum mechanics is not limited to the properties of matter on atomic scales and that matter can only assume discrete values. Rather, it is also about, when one crosses the street or not, either or.

  • Classical mechanics, which is also known as Newtonian Mechanics. When combined, these laws count in all real cases, that every action has consequences – action versus reaction.


1.2 The Model
Initial Conditions:


Light is the word of words.

  • Reality is relative,


  • The psyche is given by three physical parameters, and


  •  Reality is both real and an illusion.


Symbols and Interpretations:





1.3 Description


The model of the real world depicted above is a three-coordinate system with time-place, person, and action. The concepts/words are somewhat related. The time-age is represented by the symbols denoting information age, industrialization, and age of humanity. From the time-axis domain, progress shifts towards the place, person, and action-axis to interpret a situation in the real world. Clearly, distinct, forbidden values are located in separate areas within the place, person, action-axis. The symbols shall be connected by words that represent action-reaction and classical mechanics. The design is intended to hang the model together.


The initial conditions suggest that the first term is either the Big Bang or the Sun. However, the latter is our reference system. At the same time, different sources of light cannot be ruled out. The light could emanate from either the night sky covered with stars such that night becomes day or a large light bulb. Worth noting, the source of light becomes important only after light has struck the surface of the Earth from the source. For this reason, light is considered as the first term. Subsequently, all other phrases stem from light, implying that it is the “term of terms/phrases.”


3.1 The Relativity of Reality

The first prediction assumes that reality is relative. The universe began with the Big Bang leading to the creation of the Solar system afterward. As observed from the solar system, reality is relative. The model of reality described herein consists of words. In addition, reality is relative to the Big Bang and it comprises relative words/phrases. For such reasons, reality is relative.

As argued by Einstein, the relativity theory is not clearly understood. However, the construction of reality should be intrinsically related to human experiences (Aerts p.11). More so, the model of the real world depicted in Exhibit 1, demystifies reality as relative. In the classical world, all that exists at a given instance denoted by time, t, is termed as reality. Simply stated, reality exists at present whereby the future and the past are hypothetical.

An interpretation based on the quantum mechanics assumes that reality is deeply concealed from human perception (Vassilios p.4). The world in the space-time domain is coined as a highly dimensional projection. The interpretation is realistic in all respects because the space ascribed to all configurations exists with properties that are distinctly different from those observable among humans (Hans p.2). However, humans can only observe the effects of the space-time within the confined three-dimensional space in the model since the former remains perpetually inaccessible. 

3.2 The psyche As a function of three physical parameters

From the second prediction, the psyche is obtained from three physical parameters. The model is based on the assumption that reality is the product of three psychical laws: relativity theory, quantum mechanics, and classical mechanics that counts in all real cases. There is a relationship between a situation and the judge, that is, “in relation to/relative to”. Every either/or decision on an activity has consequences (“actions have consequences”). This suggests that human actions are governed by three physical laws. It then follows that three physical parameters can be used in the present time – place, person, action coordinate system. In tandem, the psyche is given by three physical parameters.

Commensurate with the second prediction, the reality is the product of three psychical laws. The claim where the three-dimensional continuums relate to reality is presented from a geometric viewpoint. Contrary to popular opinion, the model shows that there are no contradictions among the views of reality, which is essentially a natural process (Hans p.3). The three-dimensional space-time continuum mathematically represents the observable features in the time-space domain spanning across different times, namely the information age, industrialization, and age of humanity. As established earlier, the reality is present, but the time/age era suggests that indeed, the reality is changing. As new entries are introduced into the system, others tend to vanish while the rest stabilize and continue to exist. 

3.3 Reality as both real and an illusion

The third prediction asserts that reality is both real and an illusion. As established earlier, reality is the product of three psychical laws and is also governed by the laws of physics. If this statement holds, then one can conclude that reality is real. In addition, it has emerged that the theory of the real world is equivalent to the theory of words. Words/phrases are devoid of an inborn meaning. Instead, they consist of one or more sounds that humans have provided a meaning. If words do not have an inborn meaning and that the theory of the real world is equivalent to the theory of words, then reality is not real, but an illusion. 

For example, assuming the present reality at a time indicated on a stopwatch, that light from the sun provides the energy required to dry some finished paintings on the Earth, whilst some painting works are still in progress (Aerts p.11). Generally, these events exist in the present reality. Assuming that a few weeks ago, some painting works that were in progress, would have been completed by now. Ordinarily, one could have embarked on additional painting works that currently do not exist. Even if the decision would have been made weeks ago, it is evident that the activity does not exist at present. This is because the activity is a creation that has not materialized. It then follows that there is some ‘hidden’ space of a possible painting-related activity such that one’s decision to embark on the task a few weeks ago would have led to its identification. If this were the situation, then the activity would exist at present, in the hidden space (Aerts p.11).  However, this was not the case because tasks that have not been realized by the participator are considered as potential tasks (or illusion). Yet, they exist in the space-time domain. Ultimately, one can conclude that reality is both real and an illusion if the theory of the real world is governed by the laws of physics and is equivalent to the theory of words.

From the perspective of quantum mechanics, realists postulate that the wave function of a ‘photon’ is real.  However, caution must be exercised in this regard since considering the ‘word of words’ as a concrete object, would be grammatically incorrect.  Lighting is more of a possible world or situation; an abstract phenomenon that is not tangible. Certainly, one could assume that possible worlds and situations do exist, but vary from other objects (Hans p.4). It is worth mentioning that situations do not bear any properties, but rather, they comprise of objects bearing properties. Thus, it is likely that the solar system is ‘real’ while refuting that it is an object at the same time. If the latter is real, then it would be wrong to conclude that it possesses any properties.



Apart from the Sun and the Earth, most of the objects within the coordinate system (place, person, action) are located on the Earth. These objects are fixed in the time dimension as they navigate across the three-dimensions in the x,y,z coordinate system, defined by light, the Earth, and time/ages. In practice, there is no contradiction between the world’s nature and the sets of places within the three-dimensionality. For example, being a summer season, it is expected that the daylight will be bright on June 08, 2020 from the framework of reference. The human reaction to this statement is generally guided by a strong intuition because a predetermined future already exists in the mindset with no possibility of change. The assertion, which is derived from the Newtonian or Classical mechanics, might not contradict the present reality (Aerts p.10). If the observer is quite close to the entities, then they will wait for the following day to confirm whether the entities actually exist in the present reality. If the answer is affirmative, then no paradox exists in its construction.

For instance, assuming that one’s present personal reality at arbitrary points (x1,y1,z1) and time t = June 08, 2020, 1500 hours, perfectly coincides with the reality of a different person at the entrance of my flat the same day at arbitrary points (x2,y2,z2) and time t = June 08, 2020 1500 hours. Clearly, x1,y1,z1 differ from x2,y2,z2, which are representative of places, persons, and actions while t1 = t2 (Aerts p.9). From the construction of ‘reality’, it is quite plausible to suggest that the location actually exists. This model reaffirms that the human intuitive perception of reality is relative, real, and an illusion.




This analysis has demonstrated that reality is the product of three psychical laws: relativity theory, quantum mechanics, and classical mechanics. Although reality is relative, real and an illusion, some of its aspects can be tracked using representative models. In practice, all quantitative measurements are reproducible; they provide meaningful evidence of the reality that lurks behind human perceptions.
