Relativity and Cosmology


Is Nature Fundamentally Continuous or Discrete, and How Can These Two Different But Very Useful Conceptions be Fully Reconciled? Queries from L. Crowell and J. Dickau Fxqi Contest , 2011, Presented and Partly Answered

Authors: A. Beckwith

Our contention, is that reality is actually analog, but that at a critical limit, as when the Octonian gravity condition kicks in, that for a time it appears discrete. This due to al phase transition at the start of the big bang. Our second consideration is, that symmetry breaking models, i.e. the Higgs boson are not necessary for the formation of particles with mass just before Octonionic gravity which could arise in pre Planckian physics models without a potential. Finally, the necessity of potentials for pre Octonionic gravity physics can be circumvented via Sherrer k essence physics.
