A New Mathematical Theory of Communication


The current project relates natural science to social science. Specifically, the concept of psychological distance is revisited to be applied to the context of physics. This research argues that the sub-dimensions in the concept of psychological distance has potential to be applied to mathematical formulas in physics (e.g., the formula of velocity). In addition, the current study integrates the theory of evolutionary psychology to coherently articulate the concept.
