This has a distortion effect on something called the Wigner function for quantum systems.
"It will remain remarkable," said Nobel physicist Eugene Wigner, "in whatever way our future concepts may develop, that the very study of the external world led to the conclusion that the content of the consciousness is an ultimate reality."
The theory was developed in the middle of the 20th century by Nobel laureate Eugene Wigner and others to address problems in nuclear physics.
The physical justification for linking up irreducible representations with elementary systems is the requirement that “there must be no relativistically invariant distinction between the various states of the system” (Newton & Wigner 1949).
Here, Wigner established that each type of elementary particle corresponds to an irreducible Hilbert space representation of the restricted Poincare group.
Wigner echoed that sentiment, that naturalistic laws and the scientific enterprise are a miracle.
It was from such ideas by Wigner that modern ID draws some of its roots. physics as we know it today would not be possible without a constant recurrence of miracles
