## Cosmic-Time Quantum Mechanics and the Passage-of-Time Problem Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Abstract

A new dynamical paradigm merging quantum dynamics with cosmology is discussed. We distinguish between a universe and its background space-time. The universe here is the subset of space-time defined by Ψτ(𝑥)≠0, where Ψτ(𝑥) is a solution of a Schrödinger equation, x is a point in n-dimensional Minkowski space, and τ≥0 is a dimensionless ‘cosmic-time’ evolution parameter. We derive the form of the Schrödinger equation and show ...
