    The Structures of Interactions: How to Explain the Gauge Groups U, SU and SU.Thomas Görnitz & Uwe Schomäcker - 2018 - Foundations of Science 23 (1):51-73.
    It is very useful to distinguish between four types of interactions in nature: gravitation, and then electromagnetism, weak interaction and strong interaction. The mathematical structure of electromagnetism but also of weak and strong interaction could be understood as induced by a local gauge group. The associated groups are the unitary group in one dimension—U—for electromagnetism, the special unitary group in two dimensions—SU—for the weak interaction, and the special unitary group in three dimensions—SU—for the strong interaction. The essence of this article (...)

    On the Gyromagnetic Ratio in the Kaluza-Klein Theories and the Schuster-Blackett Law.A. O. Barut & Thomas Gornitz - 1985 - Foundations of Physics 15 (4):433-437.
    Pauli's five-dimensional Dirac equation in projective space, which results in an anomalous magnetic moment term in four dimensions, is related to the Schuster-Blackett law of the magnetic field of rotating bodies and to the recent results on the gyromagnetic ratio in Kaluza-Klein theories.

    Quantum Theory and the Nature of Consciousness.Thomas Görnitz - 2018 - Foundations of Science 23 (3):475-510.
    Our interest focusses on the idea, that consciousness is a powerful acting entity. Up to now there does not exist a scientific concept for this idea. This is not due to problems within the field of psychology or brain research, but rather in resisting theories of modern physics. That is, why we have to search for a solution in the field of physics. A solution can be found in a new understanding of the basics of physical theory. That could be (...)

    The Basis for an Understanding of Matter and Mind.Thomas Görnitz - 2014 - Foundations of Science 19 (3):257-262.
    In this commentary to Khatam and Shafiee (2013), we outline the results which are obtained three decades after Weizsäcker’s “Aufbau der Physik” (1985). It is essential to go beyond the “urs” to a yet more abstract conception. With the protyposis, abstract quantum bits without any special meaning, the understanding of matter becomes new basis. As a result, also a scientific understanding of mind will be obtained.

    A Century of Quantum Theory: Time for a Change in Thinking.Thomas Görnitz - 2017 - Foundations of Science 22 (4):749-762.
    The aim of science is the explanation of complicated systems by reducing it to simple subsystems. According to a millennia-old imagination this will be attained by dividing matter into smaller and smaller pieces of it. The popular superstition that smallness implies simplicity seems to be ineradicable. However, since the beginning of quantum theory it would be possible to realize that the circumstances in nature are exactly the other way round. The idea “smaller becomes simpler” is useful only down to the (...)
