Steve Faulkner is an independent researcher studying arithmetic as fundamental foundation for physics. His findings show that arithmetic cannot be taken for granted, as trivial, in writing physical theory. Steve shows that arithmetic used in physics, always unavoidably invokes arithmetic as an axiomatised theory — and is therefore subject to Kurt Gödel’s incompleteness theorems. He then shows how logically independent information, in this axiomatised arithmetic, has profound logical impact in quantum wave packets, prior to measurement, which we recognise as indeterminacy.
Steve was an undergraduate in the early seventies doing physics at Queen Mary College, London. In the nineties he studied with the Open University and then went to the University of Durham to study the Theory of Elementary Particles.
