Male: Werner Heisenberg, considered the founder of quantum mechanics was best known for his uncertainty principle. In his paper written in 1927, Heisenberg wrote, the more precisely the position is the determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instance and vice versa. Some have interpreted Heisenberg’s argument to mean that every concept has a meaning only in the terms of the experiments use to measure it. An example of this would be the path of a particle. According to Heisenberg’s theory, the particle has no meaning beyond the position with which it is observed. So for Heisenberg, the orbits of electrons do not exist in nature unless and until we observe them. Dr. Nicolescu: The founder, big founders, Heisenberg, Wolfgang Poli, Minsbo, many others arrived this idea that there is something else than the subject and the object, something else. What can be something else? An interaction. There's an interaction term, a unity. Not fusion, of course subject and object remains different. But there's a unity, the fact that there's a third term of interaction between subject and object. So when we are confronted at our scale, it was a different scale, it’s like saying that a third appears, a third which is an interaction term between the subject and the object. And of course, this means, on the level of knowledge and extrapolations to other fields than just quantum physics which is one discipline, just one. Male: According to Dr. Nicolescu, if reality is the same, it has to be the same everywhere. According to Aristotle, nature is something independent of us. Newton’s laws of physics told us that a real world exist independently of us regardless of whether we observe it or not. But now as Nicolescu, discoveries in quantum mechanics are revealing to us that nature is not independent of us. That we are in unit with nature and the universe. And for him, this way of perceiving the world has an extraordinary impact on the theory of knowledge. Dr. Nicolescu: All the idea of philosophy of modern philosophy, of modern metaphysics, which is based open the subject-object separation is coming to the fact that it is just one level of reality. Nothing else. And from there comes this extraordinary power of belief people had in the 19th century, 18, 17, Specially in 19th century, in the power of science. Male: For researchers like Dr. Nicolescu, the mechanistic and deterministic view of the world is now leaving its place to a more in deterministic view. It is now opening doors to new levels of reality.
