In this paper we use a non-classical logic called ParaQuantum Logic (PQL) which is based on the foundations of the Paraconsistent Annotated logic with annotation of two values (PAL2v). The formalizations of the PQL concepts, which is represented by a lattice with four vertices, leads us to consider Paraquantum logical states ψ which are propagated by means of variations of the evidence Degrees extracted from measurements performed on the Observable Variables of the physical world. In this work we introduce the Paraquantum Gamma Factor γ which is an expansion factor on the PQL lattice that act in the physical world and is correlated with the Paraquantum Factor of quantization hψ whose value is associated with a special logical state on the lattice which is identified with the Planck constant h. Our studies show that the behavior of the Paraquantum Gamma Factor γ, at the time of reading the evidence Degrees through measurements of the Observable Variables in the physical world, is identical to that one of the Lorentz Factor γ used in the relativity theory. In the final part of this paper we present results about studies of expansion and contraction of the Paraquantum Logical Model which correlate the factors γ, and γ. By applying these correlation factors, the lattice of the PQL suitable for the universe understudy can be contracted or expanded, allowing the quantization model to cover the several study fields of physics.
