What is The Reason to Use Clifford Algebra in Quantum Cognition? Part II: Information, Cognition and the Principle of Existence are Intrinsically Structured in the Quantum Model of Reality

Elio Conte


The thesis of this paper is that Information, Cognition and a Principle of Existence are intrinsically structured in the quantum model of reality. There is an intrinsic “factor of knowledge” that supports its structure. We reach such evidence by using the Clifford algebra. In detail we analyze quantization in some traditional cases of interest in quantum mechanics and, in particular, in quantum harmonic oscillator, orbital angular momentum and hydrogen atom. We adopt the basic von Neumann results that projection operators represent logical statements and we demonstrated that are intrinsically structured in the cases of quantization that are taken in consideration.
