Abstract
This paper discusses the nature of reality on the bases of novel fundamental concepts arisen out of the Dynamic Universe theory and the period doubling mechanism presented in papers The Dynamic Universe – space as a spherically closed energy system by Tuomo Suntola [1], and On the Planck scale and properties of matter by Ari Lehto [2] in this issue. The Dynamic Universe model and the period doubling mechanism open a new perspective on the physical reality and the primary laws of nature. Such a reorientation challenges the bases of the existing theory structures. The fundamental change of paradigm stimulates a deep philosophical study of the basic assumptions and concepts. Antique metaphysics created great principles but met its limits with the lack of empiricism. The triumph of modern physics can be seen in our phenomenal technological progress but the main objective of a scientific theory – to make nature understandable – has not been met. A theory is not inherently correct or wrong but it describes chosen phenomena accurately or less accurately, widely in all circumstances or only in a limited sense. A theory may rely on philosophical ideas of the laws of nature, or it may discern the laws of nature via a mathematical description of observations. A comprehensive theory comprises clear philosophical bases with a minimal number of postulates, without compromising experimental evidence and testable predictions.
