Philosophical Implication

Abstract: John. A. Wheeler is a theoretical physicist who is concerned
about the essence of physics and reality. He continued the thoughtful
tradition of Copenhagen School and pushed it to its extreme. Wheeler put
forward many physical propositions with philosophical implication such
as delayed choice experiment, participatory universe, and so on. This
issue will concentrate on the introduction on some physical propositions
at the intercross field of quantum physics and general relativity such
as black holes, geons and quantum foam.
Key Words: J. A. Wheeler, Geons, Quantum foam, Black holes, Reality.
