¿Cómo construir cuerpos individuales en el universo cartesiano?

Translated title of the contribution: ¿How to build individual bodies in the Cartesian universe?

Carlos Alberto Cardona Suárez, Juan Raúl Loaiza Arias

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article argues that in the Cartesian Cosmology it is not clear how we can talk about or refer to individual bodies in the context of a compact universe. It defends that the concept of individual body inside of this Cosmology can be built as a fiction of the spirit. This concept can be constructed as the extension that is locked up in a maximal surface whose subdivisions have no relative movement between them. It is also shown that Cartesian Cosmology can be seen as a trivial model of M-theory.
