RE: A. Ghorbanzadeh, Quantum mechanics as a result of time broadening of the classical object,

Dear Dr. Ghorbanzadeh,

I like your quant-ph/0411169 v1 very much. Just a few brief comments.

You wrote: "Let's try to imagine a creature that partly feels itself present at all points on the time axis, i.e. the past, the present, and the future."

Please see Erasmo Recami

and my efforts at

You also wrote: "Hence, the parameter  t  appearing in the usual quantum mechanics is only a dynamical parameter showing, for example, the maximum available hidden time value, not the time coordinate."

I believe your 'maximum available hidden time value' could lead to the putative 'imaginary time'

Perhaps this could help us understand how the tachyon field could be "coupled" to matter (cf. Edmund J. Copeland et al., What is needed of a tachyon if it is to be the dark energy?, hep-th/0411192 v1),

I will appreciate your comments, as well as the feedback from your

Dear Atamalek,

Thank you for your kind reply.

It was a great pleasure to read your paper. As to the animation, it was very easy, given the beautiful pictures by M. Seify,

If we keep this "physical sense", I'm afraid we will never understand the transition from quantum to classical regime,

Bottom line is quantum cosmology,
