Avril Styrman, PhD in Philosophy (2017). In his doctoral thesis, he applies the method of economical unification in addressing philosophical questions. In the method, the Principle of Economy or Unificatory Power is applied as an evaluation criterion of scientific and philosophical theories and their fusions. The fusion of absolute simultaneity, presentism, the conservation law of energy in spherically closed space and ontological realism is identified as the most economical of the available fusions of philosophy and physics, and applied as the ontological ground for concepts and semantics and in addressing questions and resolving problems. “I am attracted by the Dynamic Universe due to its unificatory power and its compatibility with absolute simultaneity and presentism."
