A Quantum Coherence-Recoherence-Based Model of Reality

Carlos Eduardo Maldonado


This paper discusses a coherence-recoherence-based model of reality and argues that the world and nature can be grasped as positive and negative loops of continuous coherence-decoherence-recoherence behaviors. In so doing, the paper presents a state-of-the-art about recoherence and claims that the world and nature can be taken as an unceasingly process of decoherence-and-recoherence. Non-linearity and non-equilibrium dynamics prevail in nature.
