Entropic Dynamics, Time and Dr. Quantum Bohm's Theory Prospero's Ariel


"Ariel (pronounced /?æri?l/) is a fictional spirit who appears in William Shakespeare's play The Tempest. Ariel is bound to serve the magician Prospero, who rescued him from the tree in which he was imprisoned by Sycorax, the witch who previously inhabited the island. Prospero greets disobedience with a reminder that he saved Ariel from Sycorax's spell, and with promises to grant Ariel his freedom. Ariel is Prospero's eyes and ears throughout the play, using his magical abilities to cause the tempest in Act one which gives the play its name, and to foil other character's plots to bring down his master.
The source of Ariel's name and character is unknown, although several critics have pointed out his similarities to the Ariel mentioned in Isaiah Chapter 29 in the Bible. The name means "Lion of the Lord", in this sense. Ariel may also be a simple play on the word "aerial". Scholars have compared him to sprites depicted in other Elizabethan plays, and have managed to find several similarities between them, but one thing which makes Ariel unique is the human edge and personality given him by Shakespeare.

Since the stage directions in The Tempest are so precise, critics and historians are better able to see how this play may have originally been performed than with other Shakespearean plays. Several of the scenes involving magic have clear instructions on how to create the illusion required, causing critics to make connections and guesses as to exactly what sort of technology would have been used in Shakespeare's troupe to stage Ariel's role in the play. Also, a line by Ariel in Act IV brings other scholars to ask questions as to whether the original actor for Ariel played the part for Ceres as well, due to a shortage of boy actors.

Ariel is widely viewed as a male character, although this view has wavered over the years, especially in the Restoration, when women played the role, for the most part. Ariel has also been involved, though lightly, in the debate over the colonialist nature of the play, as scholars have tried to determine how he compares to the more rebellious Caliban in terms of service to the European Prospero." - The Very Wickedpedia

"But why should the osmotic mass be precisely equal to the inertial mass?
Why can’t we say that entropic dynamics predicts a non-linear generalization of
quantum theory? This question is so central to quantum theory that we devote
the next section to it. But before that we note that the non-linearity is undesirable
both for experimental and theoretical reasons."

Wrong, it's desirable. Indeed, it's necessary for life and consciousness.

Orthodox quantum theory works only for dead matter.

"On one hand, various types of non-linearities have been ruled out experimentally to an extreme degree
through precision experiments on the Lamb shift [22] and even more so in hyperfine
transitions [40]. On the other hand, from the theory side it is the fact that
time evolution preserves linear superpositions that leads to the superposition
principle and makes Hilbert spaces useful. In addition, there is a consistency
argument that links the linearity of the Hilbert space and the linearity of time
evolution [10]. Retaining one and not the other leads to inconsistently assigned
amplitudes showing that the very concept of quantum amplitudes is a reflection
of linearity. And, as if that were not enough, it has also been shown that in
the presence of non-linear terms entangled particles could be used to achieve
superluminal communication [41]. Therefore it is extremely probable that the
identity of inertial and osmotic mass is exact."

"The puzzle of the arrow of time has a long history (see e.g. [38]). The standard question is how can an arrow of time be derived from underlying laws of nature that are symmetric? Entropic dynamics offers a new perspective because it does not assume any underlying laws of nature – whether they be symmetric or not – and its goal is not to explain the asymmetry between past and future. The asymmetry is the inevitable consequence of entropic inference. From the point of view of entropic dynamics the challenge does not consist in explaining the arrow of time, but rather in explaining how it comes about that despite the arrow of time some laws of physics turn out to be reversible. Indeed, even when the derived laws of physics—in our case, the Schr ?odinger equation—turns out to be fully time-reversible, entropic time itself only flows forward."

I am not sure what the above paragraph means. In the hologram universe, we have a natural post-selected 2D boundary hologram screen our future event horizon whose entropy is the entropy of the 3D bulk universe because the 3D universe is its back from the future hologram image.

This is the Ed Jaynes approach. Jaynes was the Ph.D. advisor of my Ph.D. advisor. Jaynes got his Ph.D. under Eugene Wigner at Princeton. Wigner was a major innovator on the use of symmetry groups in quantum mechanics and he was interested in consciousness generating the collapse of the state vector in the Copehagen Interpretation of Niels Bohr.

"Entropic dynamics resembles general relativity in one important respect. According to general relativity the geometry of space-time dictates how matter must move, and matter reacts back and dictates how the geometry must change in response. The lesson of general relativity, if there is one at all, is that there is no fixed background: space is a dynamical entity."

Compare Bohm's quantum potential Q to spacetime geometry. In my post-quantum theory Q is dynamical just like geometry is in GR. However, dynamical Q getting direct back-reaction from the spin 1/2 fermion particles on definite trajectories and the classical spin 1 boson fields including the gravity tetrad LIF spin 1 boson fields, violates the signal locality no-cloning a quantum Born statistical rule of orthodox quantum theory.
