The Voice of God, Zeno and Bohmian Mechanics

A title doesn’t get more philosophical and mystical in a non-philosophical and non-mystical and technical paper than in this one:

Zeno Paradox for Bohmian Trajectories: The Unfolding of the Metatron by Maurice de Gosson, Basil Hiley

Some definitions not provided in the paper that might help unpack the references made in the title:

Metratron – angel in the religions of the Abrahamic tradition, many times depicted as the Voice of God.

Zeno Paradox – philosophical argument for “a watched pot never boils”, a physical phenomena in quantum mechanics.

Bohmian trajectories – a school on the interpretation of quantum mechanics, related to pilot waves theory.

However, I must stress this paper is not about philosophy or angels, it just a clever title.


God bless those pagans.
-Homer
