Implications of Fractal and Renormalization Concepts Extended for Unification and Decoherence Theories.

Authors: Tariq Khan
Comments: 3 Pages.

Recent articles summarizing recent research noting the proclivity of renormalization techniques to solve self-organized criticality and deep learning could intimate that the challenges with the unification of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity, and with finding a formal solution for quantum decoherence, could be chimeras if the human observed nature of reality itself are actually renormalizations of an infinite fractal space-time that is intractable with current techniques.

Great Delusion

Authors: A.V. Kaminsky
Comments: 25 Pages. In Russian

Abstract Why is physical reality exactly like it is, and not another? In order to understand this, first of all, you need to understand what physical reality is? What is the role of the observer? What is an observer? To answer these questions, we will take a short but exciting trip into transcendental philosophy of Kant, Fichte and Husserl. Keywords: consciousness, time, quantum mechanics, existence, subjectivity, relativity, illusion, ontology.

Two Cases of the Stammering Symptom that Became Milder by Remedy for Fluvoxamine Long Term

Authors: Toshiro Takami
Comments: 10 Pages.

 I experienced two cases that becoming milder happened of the stammering symptom by remedy for Fluvoxamine long term. I was infected with a stammering symptom with 2 cases from early childhood time. Third grade at a high school next, society anxiety disorder develop in case 1. Depressive disorders develop in case 2 recently. By, with 2 cases, performing long-term remedy of fluvoxamine for those diseases (society anxiety disorder, depressive disorders); of the stammering symptom becoming milder took place accidentally. As for case 1, case 2 needed seven months for ten months until a stammering symptom slight illness recognized becoming it. With 2 cases of the stammering symptom pass through 15 years or more than becoming milder, but the stammering symptom continues keeping the state that became milder so that it may be said that is remission.  The treatment of the stammering symptom is full of difficulty in the serious case in particular, and there are many a social dropout, social eremites, too. Because the medical treatment of the stammering symptom is hardly known in this country, I report it here.

Refutation of Superposition as a Red Herring of Schrödinger's Cat

Authors: Colin James III
Comments: 1 Page. Copyright © 2018 by Colin James III All rights reserved. Respond to this author's email address: info@ersatz-systems dot com. (We instruct troll Mikko at Disqus to read the entire article twice before she starts typing.)

We paraphrase Schrödinger's cat thought experiment as follows. A box hides from view a cat with a radioactive source where the probability of decay or no decay is equal. In the course of one hour, the probability of the state of decay causes the demise of the cat, or the probability of the state of no decay causes not the demise of the cat. Superposition is defined as both states rather than either state above, and is the red herring. Quantum theory asserts that either state implies both states concurrently as superposition. The state inside the box during the hour at any moment is not known exactly, but that does not mean both states are concurrent at any moment as superposition. However, before the end of the hour to open the box, interrupt the experiment, and force an inspection returns either state and hence falsifies a concurrent state of affairs of the red herring.

Schrödinger’s Cat and the Red Herring

Authors: Georgina Parry
Comments: 4 Pages.

Uncovering the red herring in Schrodinger's cat thought experiment: Singular measurements of attributes (called properties) of particles or objects are relative. That is, they come from the relation with the particle or object under consideration rather than being sole property of it, by itself ( independently of the measurement relations). Measurables such as orientation of rotation, velocity, energy, momentum are relational. What the state or value is found to be depends upon the relation with the observed or measured entity by which a singular outcome is obtained. (/e/ viewpoint or apparatus and method employed). Or at the macroscopic scale, when vision or hearing is involved the relation to the potential sensory stimuli, signals received and processed into what is seen.) Whereas an intrinsic state of being is not relational but independent. A decayed and non decayed particle are different from each other because the decayed particle has lost something compared to the un-decayed and is therefore not an identical system to the un-decayed. It might be regarded as a different object because that change has happened. A shattered flask of poison is not the same as an intact flask of poison. The shards of glass are different objects from the intact flask object. It is not a matter of relative perspective. Likewise dead and alive cat. The live cat has functioning metabolism, the dead does not. Which is not a matter of relative perspective but intrinsic difference in state of being. The change to the objects in the thought experiment make it dis-similar to the scenarios in quantum experiments.

Illogic: a Feasible Method of Understanding Theory of Everything

Authors: Yang Chen
Comments: 24 Pages.

Theory of everything (TOE) is known as the ultimate theory of physics. However, there is no efficient method which can help understand the TOE. In this work, by introducing the concept of illogic, the TOE can be achieved beyond the scope of logic with an implied form. Firstly, concepts of step, chain and network are introduced. Logic, semi-logic and illogic are discussed with these concepts. The method of understanding illogic is listed as a process gradually changing from logic, semi-logic to illogic by building and updating the network. Secondly, the relation of illogic and the TOE is discussed in both an easy-understanding form and an improved version. Thus a feasible method to the TOE is framed up by combining the illogic and its relation to the TOE. After the general method is shown, examples of steps, chains and a network are discussed to offer detail instructions on how to build a network. As the network aims to help understand illogic, the intrinsic confliction between logical words which are used to write this work and the purpose of understanding illogic is inevitable. At last, logical conflictions in this paper are discussed to illustrate this effect and offer further information to help the reader understand this paper. Descriptions in different levels are included to reveal the way of organizing this paper as well as to further illustrate the basic requirement of understanding illogic.

Comments: Two pages

Out of twenty new ideas as mentioned in this article and described in author’s article ‘A Non-standard Model of Physics’ (available at vixra.org/abs/1806.0197), first three are fundamental assumptions of the new model - a four dimensional model of physics derived from an alternate four dimensional cosmology. Even at the beginning stage, this new 4D model is able to explain or interpret successfully a good number of fundamental laws, puzzles or phenomena of modern physics.

Body and Soul in Physics

Authors: Kiyoung Kim
Comments: 17 Pages.

What is the nature of mind? This question has been asked for a long time, maybe, since the beginning of human history on Earth. It is about what is the reality of mind and how it is connected to physical body. Being interpreted with new paradigm of physics, in which physical phenomena is not complete by itself but connected to ontological reality of nature or essential nature behind all physical phenomena, the human mind is not just a mental process originated in physical body, but it is also being connected to ontological body and making it interact with the physical body. Here, the ontological body should be the soul or spirit of human being that has been considered as something supernatural. In philosophical term, it corresponds to physicalism that is ontological monism including physical energy in materialism. New type of physical interaction, subtle-spin-string wave interaction, is proposed to explain the physical process of quantum entanglement. Moreover, with the new type of physical interaction, subtle energy is also explained what it is and how it works with physical body, in which the subtle energy has been mentioned for a long time in many fields such as oriental medicine, acupuncture, meditations, etc.; nevertheless, it has been regarded as a pseudoscience in scientific consensus.

Nonconstructive Infinity

Authors: Robert Yusupov
Comments: 8 Pages. In Russian (please learn Russian) Robert Yusupov <©> Nonconstructive Infinity June 14, 2018

Поговорим о бесконечности. Понятие бесконечности используется, например, в математике. Это очень продуктивное и результативное использование. Много замечательных открытий и выводов сделано в математике с помощью понятия бесконечность. Если же мы обратим наш взор на природу, то глядя в ночное звёздное небо к нам приходят мысли о бесконечности и вечности Вселенной и природы. Эти первые впечатления и мысли о бескрайности и вечности мироздания, природы человек переносит на своё понимание природы. Человек, большинство людей так и воспринимают природу и нашу Вселенную, как бесконечную в пространстве и вечную во времени. Пространство Вселенной, природы бесконечно, неограниченно, а существование Вселенной, природы вечно – вот вывод, которым довольствуются многие люди. ---------------+++++++++++++------------- Let's talk about infinity. The notion of infinity is used, for example, in mathematics. This is a very productive use. Many remarkable discoveries and conclusions have been made in mathematics with the help of the concept of infinity. If we turn our gaze to nature, then looking at the night starry sky, we come to the thought of the infinity and eternity of the universe and nature. These first impressions and thoughts about the vastness and eternity of the universe, nature, people endure on their understanding of nature. Man, most people perceive nature and our Universe as infinite in space and eternal in time. The space of the universe, of nature is infinite, unlimited, and the existence of the universe, of nature is eternal - this is the conclusion that many people are content with.

A Non-standard Model of Physics

Authors: Ratikanta Das
Comments: 19 pages

The article justifies following new concepts of physics and cosmology: 1. Our universe has four dimensional space filled with two kinds of four dimensional (4D) hyper spherical particles and every object in universe moves as wave due to local transverse motion of these 4D particles. 2. Fundamental particles are created from these 4D particles when four-dimensional space deforms locally. 4. Equal magnitude of charges (±e) of fundamental particles of different mass is due to their similar shape (shape and size determines the property of charge and mass respectively). 3. Fundamental particles have special 4D structures with infinite extent which justifies action at a distance for electromagnetic and gravitational influence. 4. Schrödinger equation and de Broglie hypothesis can be obtained from 4D structure of fundamental particle. 5. The 4D wave pulse of a fundamental particle is more appropriate to resolve wave-particle duality of matter than that done by a wave packet of 3D model. 6. The net energy of the 4D structure of a fundamental particle that is formed satisfying some equilibrium conditions determines its mass 7. A four-dimensional classical technique named as spiral transformation describes the process of conversion of radiation into matter and vice versa. 8. 4D Structures of fundamental particles are used to find an expression for unified Coulomb and strong force, and explains why electron-positron pair annihilates but electron-proton pair forms a stable combination and why n-n or p-p combination is unstable in spite of strong attractive force but n-p combination (deuteron) is stable.

Perfect Symmetry: A Short Philosophical Note on Math Rebuilt from Ancient Atomism

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 3 Pages.

In this paper we point out an interesting asymmetry in the rules of fundamental mathematics between positive and negative numbers. We suggest an alternative (additional) number system rooted in ancient atomism; see, for example, Guthrie (1965); Pyle (1995); Taylor (1999); Grellard and Robert (2009). At several points in history, leading philosophers and scientists have thought that atomism could be the fundamental ex- planation of everything. Ancient atomism basically claims that everything consists of indivisible particles traveling in the void. If this is true, then we will see that everything comes in quanta (whole units) and fractional parts do not exist. Accordingly, in math developed from atomism there are no imaginary numbers.

In defense of Dialectical Materialism (from previously unpublished) +++++++++ The only scientific philosophy is Marxist-Leninist philosophy (MLF). One of its main parts is the theory of dialectical materialism. Marxist-Leninist philosophy (MLF) and dialectical materialism in its composition arm us with true knowledge of nature and its laws. All other philosophies are false and unscientific theories. These are idealistic, bourgeois, tabloid, vulgar, speculative philosophical doctrines, trends, theories and schools. "Theory of Nature" by the author (http://vixra.org/author/robert_yusupov) on the part of physics and cosmology fully confirms the positions and conclusions of dialectical materialism and of all Marxist-Leninist philosophy. ---------------------------------------- В защиту диалектического материализма (из ранее неопубликованного) +++++++++ Единственная научная философия – это марксистско-ленинская философия (МЛФ).

Lunar Ascent of the Apollo 17 in Television Broadcast

Authors: Julius A. Birch
Comments: 24 Pages.

We analyze the Apollo 17 ascent from the lunar surface that occurred on December 14, 1972. The lunar ascent was captured by a remotely operated pan-zoom-tilt (PZT) camera on the Lunar Roving Vehicle parked some distance away, and broadcasted on television to the audiences on Earth. We use known features of the camera PZT to extract the angle above the horizon (elevation) as a function of time of the craft in the TV broadcast. We then compare the craft's reconstructed trajectory to that of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Ascent Stage. We list the differences in Vertical Rise and early Orbit Insertion phases, and what makes them anomalous.

Separation, Transposition and Docking of Apollo 11 in Low-Earth Orbit

Authors: Julius A. Birch
Comments: 34 Pages.

A selection of visual media from the Apollo 11 Mission, namely, the 70mm photographs AS11-36- 5301 through AS11-36-5313 and the 16mm film magazine A, are shown to strongly suggest that at the time of their filming Apollo 11 craft were in low-Earth orbit. The visual media comprise the film footage and the photographs of the craft and the Earth filmed before and during the maneuvers separation, transposition and docking (STD). The STD reportedly occured during the translunar coast some 30 minutes after the translunar injection (TLI). In the STD, the Command and Service Module (CSM) would dismount the rocket Saturn-IVB (S-IVB) carrying the Lunar Module (LM) and the CSM up to that point, then dock with and extract the LM. The S-IVB would then split from the group to fly behind the Moon and in an orbit around the Sun. In determining the location of the Apollo 11 craft, the sizes of Earth and the S-IVB rocket and their distances from the camera are extracted from the media assuming a selection of camera lenses. The extracted CSM flight data include the turning rate and the turning angle, the maximum separation distance, and the docking velocity. From their comparison to the Flight Plan, the Mission Report and to the oral transcripts from the Apollo 11 Flight Journal, it is found that the 16mm Mauer Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) was filming with the 10mm lens, and not with the 18mm lens as NASA reported. Consequently, the photography must have been done with a Hasselblad manual camera with the 38mm lens and not with the Hasselblad electric camera with the 80mm lens as NASA reported. The visual media being recorded with these new lenses puts the craft at the time of the STD in low-Earth orbit, rather than Moon-bound after successful TLI.

Improper Levels of Abstraction

Authors: Michael J. Burns
Comments: 3 Pages. mburns92003@yahoo.com

Good analysis is to be faithful in describing the mathematical systems that are out there. But vectors are a far too specialized tool for their assigned role in academic physics, and algebra is entirely too general. And rejecting the bad requires understanding what is better.

Gravity and Inertia Are Two Sides of Same Coin

Authors: Krishan Vats
Comments: 2 Pages.

Gravitational mass and inertial mass, have been found quantitatively same in experiments, but they are still considered two different concepts/phenomena in all physics literature. This article puts forth the idea that the two are conceptually same, not different. Therefore they are also always found to be quantitatively same. Which is not a coincidence; It is proposed that gravity and inertia are indeed one and same phenomena. This concept of identical phenomenon is presented to physicists to prove or disprove. For clarifying purpose, same concept is stated multiple times with slightly different wordings.

A Review on Self-Organized Criticality as a Model of the Scientific Development

Authors: Victor Christianto, Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 8 Pages. This paper has been submitted to Prespacetime Journal. Your comments are welcome

According to a conventional belief held by most science communities, sciences can advance by two ways: (a) incremental approach by virtue of scientific methods, (b) paradigm shift. The latter term has been advocated by a notorious science historian, Thomas Kuhn. Despite such widespread acceptance, such a term of paradigm shift is not often tested empirically. Therefore, in this paper we review a recent work which uses citation analysis of journal-journal for the past recent years. This analysis reveals that scientific progress seems to follow Self-Organized Criticality. In the last section, we compare this citation analysis result with our model of the origin of the Universe.

Probability and Entanglement

Authors: Gunn Quznetsov
Comments: 8 Pages. Global Journal of Science Frontier Research: FMathematics and Decision Sciences Volume 18 Issue 2 Version 1.0 Year 2018

Here the concept of "TRUE" is defined according to Alfred Tarski, and the concept "OCCURING EVENT" is derived from this definition. From here, we obtain operations on the events and properties of these operations and derive the main properties of the CLASSICAL PROB-ABILITY. PHYSICAL EVENTS are defined as the results of applying these operations to DOT EVENTS. Next, the 3 + 1 vector of the PROBABILITY CURRENT and the EVENT STATE VECTOR are determined. The presence in our universe of Planck's constant gives reason to\linebreak presume that our world is in a CONFINED SPACE. In such spaces, functions are presented by Fourier series. These presentations allow formulating the ENTANGLEMENT phenomenon.

A Fundamental Description of the Universe and Its Associated Workings

Authors: John Raymond
Comments: 37 Pages.

Abstract Mainstream physics typically ignores the energy type condition of ontological-reality and its associated effects after the Big Bang explosion. This includes the holistic universal real life condition and its associated units of influences as well, which includes nature. I propose that by considering the effects of the universe’s four primary informational energy types it is possible to ontologically develop a meaningful reference frame of local and non-local information to satisfy this contemporary scientific anomaly. I further suggest that my approach provides indicative insight into what might be the energy-type of the conditionless-void matrix of reality as well. This is all that “IS”. I believe that following the release of the energy-type of the Big Bang the Big Bang itself became the point of singularity for all the conditions, influences and effects that constitute the universe that scientists theorise it probably is. I propose that the primary energy effect of the Big Bang was an ontological irreducible one. I believe that this irreducible energy effect provides the essential conditions of all universal life forms and their associated informational meaning. The human mind is an energy type that is informationally representative of the wider irreducible energy type. This presentation seeks to structurally demonstrate this entangled holistic-reality condition. Author's email: conceptscience@bigpond.com

Free Will Readiness Potential Ratios, the Key for a Multiverse Number Calculation.

Authors: Leo Vuyk
Comments: 16 Pages.

Benjamin Libet measured the so called electric Readiness Potential (RP) time to perform a volitional act, in the brains of his students and the time of conscious awareness (TCA) of that act, which appeared to come 500 m.sec behind the RP. The “volitional act” was in principle based on the free choice to press an electric switch button. The results of this experiment gives still an ongoing debate in the broad layers of the scientific community, because the results are still (also in recent experiments) in firm contrast with the expected idea of Free Will and causality. However I would propose the absurd but constructive possibility that we are not alone for decision making in a multiverse as an individual person. Even Max Tegmark suggested already about the multiverse: “Is there a copy of you reading this article?” We could be instant entangled with at least one instant entangled anti-copy person living inside a Charge and Parity symmetric copy Universe. In that case we could construct a causal explanation for Libet’s strange results. New statistical differenctial research on RPI and RPII of extended Libet experiments described here should support these ideas as a base for the number of participants ( and even universes) involved. Wikipedia says: “Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally”. Free will in a multiverse seems to be based on: all instant entangled ideas of copy persons living in all CP symmetric copy universes, have the same possibility to Veto an act and participate equally. If we are able to “Tap into” those instant entanglement connections” sent out by other people, then even telepathic effects (mind reading) could be explained. .

Speculation on a Unified Field Theory (UFT), Grand Unification Theories (GUT) and Supersymmetry and Superstring Theories

Authors: Richard L Amoroso, Elizabeth A Rauscher
Comments: 19 Pages. https://doi.org/10.1142/9789814324250_0013

The search for a comprehensive theory of the Universe, i.e. a theory of everything (TOE) has been the desire and attempted fulfillment throughout history. In this chapter, we cannot give a comprehensive description of this unfolding story but will present some of the lights from our perspective and particularly that of (EAR) from her Lawrence Berkeley National laboratory (LBNL) days when she was a graduate student and then a staff member in the Nuclear Science and Department of Theoretical Physics. She was one of the very few staff members, not only interested in particle physics, general relativity, astrophysics and cosmology, but also the nature of consciousness. Both of us have a passion to ken the Universe, which clearly includes conscious sentient beings. Here we address the issues in unified field theories that relate to our work in this volume on multidimensional geometries and their relationship to describing nonlocal, nonlinear, anticipatory phenomena. One of our motivations is to include a domain for the action and participation of the conscious observer and consciousness in general. The process of scientific discovery involves observation, data systemization and theoretical hypothesis and formulation about the observed data. The process of experimental examination and theoretical hypothesis and further tests of these concepts, leads to the development of scientific rules or laws.

Two significant principles of the 20th century are the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the nonlocality principles of the Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen paradox [1]. Both these elements of quantum theory have major physical and philosophical implicatio like Bell’s Theorem and Space-Like Interconnect-edness and Other Collective Coherent Phenomena Involve nonlocality. We also present a discussion of the EPR paradox and other experiments that may demand a nonlocal explanation of the phenomenon they display.

La Cosmologie Moderne :Une Déviation Intellectuelle Majeure

Authors: Francis M. Sanchez
Comments: 32 Pages. published by CEP (Center of Prospective study) n° 78-79 (March-June 2017), and Bulletin de l'académie Internationale Concorde (2018) review (2018).

The basic Cosmos concept is wiped out in our epoch, contrary to old traditions. The main cosmic phenomena, the galactic recession shows up a length, not a time as widely professed, which is related, via a canonical factor 2, to three main fundamental constants, the light celerity being excluded : three minutes of a mandatory elementary calculation leads to this Observable Universe radius 13.812 milliards light-years. Now the official cosmology says that the Universe age is precisely 13.8 milliards years. The two approaches are concordant, but, as fundamental constants are time-invariant, this excludes the Primordial Big Bang, replacing it by a Permanent Bang, a matter-antimatter oscillation at frequency 10^104 Hz. Modern mathematics have not recognized the Eddington's number as fundamental, while ancient Egypt has represented its decomposition 137 = 3 + 7 + 127, the Catalan-Mersenne series, in the Hypostyle Room of the Amon temple in Karnak. The following term 2^127 gives back the above Universe radius, with the unity for which the Bohr radius is about 137 : the electron wavelength. The couple electron-positron is so the basis of all, as predicted by the forgotten Eddington's statistical Fundamental Theory.

History of the paper "Towards a More Well-Founded Cosmology"

Authors: Hartmut Traunmüller
Comments: 12 Pages.

Scientific journals do not normally publish any paper that directly discredits the currently accepted doctrine within their field, no matter how wrong it is. This is because referees can easily identify deviations from current doctrine and established practice, while it requires a higher intellectual effort to assimilate a new point of view and to follow a non-traditional path of reasoning. Referees naturally tend to avoid this extra effort. Students, researchers and editors are aware of this and so are likely to choose a mode of action that does not threaten their own carrier. Thus, they prefer to follow the mainstream. These circumstances are apt to preclude fundamental progress in science for long periods of time. This is merely a case study about the history of a paper that illustrates this problem.

Response to the FQXi RFP: Agency in the Physical World

Authors: Peter Cameron, Michaele Suisse
Comments: 2 Pages.

To bring scientific rigor to FQXi challenges[1] is the greatest challenge. Given the diverse community and vexing manner in which our organizers delight in framing issues, prevalent absence of rigor follows. Yet a substantial subset of the community is comprised of physicists, with no obvious tightening there of reason’s web. We have two immediate interests. First is to make our work accessible to larger communities, to focus on the theoretical minimum, on quantum interpretations as applied to the geometric wavefunction, to express geometric wavefunction physics in languages of most closely related disciplines. To function as interpreters[11]. Second is quantum impedance matching in nanoelectonics, beyond scale invariant quantum Hall impedance of vector Lorentz forces to those associated with all forces and their potentials. It appears the present status in that community is black art. Nobody knows what they’re doing. Impedance governs amplitude and phase of energy flow. One has to quantum impedance match if one wants to quantum compute effectively. This is just common sense.

Zeno's Paradox and the Planck Length. The Fine Structure Constant and The Speed of Ligh

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this short paper we look at some interesting relationships between Zeno's paradox, the Planck length, the speed of light, and the fine structure constant. Did you know it takes 144 Zeno steps to reduce the speed of light to Planck length speed? Did you know it takes 137 Zeno steps to go from alpha*c to Planck length speed? And interestingly it is 7 steps between 144 and 137. We assume this is merely a coincidence, but it is often assumed that there are likely a maximum of 137 elements, the last one being the ``Feynmanium." And there are considered to be 7 orbital shells. We do not claim this explains anything particular in physics, but we also do not exclude the possibility that there could be something meaningful in it. Are these patterns purely numerically coincidences, or could they be a link to deeper understanding of other patterns related to physics, like the periodic table? Whatever the answer may be, it is interesting to look at Zeno's paradox in relation to the Planck length.

Fundamentalism as a Metaphysical Concept

Authors: Jose P. Koshy
Comments: 7 Pages. Submitted to FQXi essay contest 2017

Fundamentalism, the belief that there exists some irreducible basic truths in anything connected with nature, has existed for a very long time. But its significance as a distinct metaphysical concept has not been properly analyzed so far. This essay is an attempt to formalize 'a concept of fundamentalism', which can be defined as follows: “Any field of knowledge has some fundamentals, based on which everything in that field can be logically explained, and so by identifying the fundamentals, we can arrive at the truth”. A fundamentalist approach in physics predicts the existence and the attributes of a Theory of Everything.

With additional explanation of the analogy, and comparison of superposition from the hive mind to quantum physics theoretical superposition of outcome states. Rather than frog and bird views of the universe as suggested by Max Tegmark, this considers the frog and hive mind of a swarm of super intelligent bees. Arguing that the aggregate view of the hive mind demonstrates the relativity of variables, and that their collective view also represents 'many worlds' of possibility from the point of view of a frog with just a singular viewpoint.This ties together ideas of relativity and QM

The Unifying Theory: A New Theory of the Universe

Authors: Bader Binkhdhayr
Comments: 16 Pages.

Our understanding of motion has been influenced by the assumption that external and invisible forces act upon matter to cause acceleration. In this article, I refute the validity of this convention and propose an alternative perception that suggests matter's independence. That change in perspective gives rise to important principles and equations that contribute to resolving the conflict between classical and quantum mechanics, unifying the explanations for universal forces and explaining the Lorentz transformation. I start by introducing a unit, a number of fundamental particles, that replaces mass. Then, I suggest that motion is quantized with a frequency equal to speed divided by a variation of Planck's Length. I then explain that energy is the primary cause of motion and can be calculated by measuring time dilation. Finally, I introduce a single formula that describes gravity and electromagnetism.

Borges and the Subjective-Idealism in Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics

Authors: Victor Christianto, Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 15 Pages. This paper has not been submitted to a journal. Your comments are welcome

This paper is intended to be a follow-up to our previous paper with title: "Reinterpreting Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius: On the antirealism tendency in modern physics." We will give more background for our propositions in the previous paper. Our message here is quite simple: allow us to remind fellow physicists and cosmologists to become more aware of Berkeley-idealism tendency, which can lead us to so many distractions instead of bringing us closer to the truth. We observe that much of the progress of modern physics in the last few decades only makes us as confused as before, but at a much higher level. In the last section, we will give some examples of how we can do something better than existing practice of physics in the past.

The Quantization of Space

Authors: Uta Volkenborn, Heinz Volkenborn
Comments: 10 pages, 2 figures

The fine-structure constant α=1⁄137 demands a quantization of space. For this purpose, we refer to a volume constant of electromagnetic processes, which takes effect as a volume quantum. This involves not only a re-evaluation of the Dirac equation but also, and above all, a determination of Einstein’s velocity vector as the fundamental property of these processes. A prerequisite is the linking of the hydrogen spectrum with the hydrogen nucleus.

Physics Beyond the Standard Model: a Reductionistic Approach

Authors: Victor Paromov
Comments: 12 pages, 3 figures

The Standard Model (SM) is the best present theory of elementary particle interactions. Unfortunately, the SM cannot be unified with the theory of general relativity (GR) and has a number of ad hoc parameters. A certain ultimate unifying theory “beyond the SM” is long time expected. The present letter analyzes the SM from the materialistic philosophical position and shows the fundamental inconsistencies within the elementary set of particles. In order to be truly elementary, all the particles in this set should be stable and “unbreakable”, which requires the set reduction. It is logical to expect that the successful unification concept will support the proposed reduction the elementary set. Unfortunately, no quantum field theory can support such reduction, on the contrary, all those theories expected to replace the SM including string theories actually tend to increase, not decrease the number of elementary particles. The modified Einsteinian concept of curved spacetime, the General Principe of Interaction (GPI) proposed recently actually supports the proposed reduction. The GPI-based unification allows, in general, combining the quantum field mathematical descriptions of the particle interactions (methodologically similar to the SM) with the classic field descriptions of the gravitation (the GR). In addition, this approach is shown useful in solving the number of important philosophical problems of quantum physics.

From the exponential function of Euler's equation to the geometry of a fundamental form, a calculation of the fine-structure constant and its relationship to the proton-electron mass ratio is given. Equations are found for the fundamental constants of the four forces of nature: electromagnetism, the weak force, the strong force and the force of gravitation. Symmetry principles are then associated with traditional physical measures.

Why Ufos Are Depicted as Saucer Shaped

Authors: Krishan Vats
Comments: 1 Page.

There is a definite reason for “Why UFOs are saucer shaped” and the shape itself has a clue in it for altering gravity. Kind of maneuvers the UFOs/space ships are expected to exhibit are only possible via shielding gravity, or altering the space curvature to say in other words. Therefore UFOs have to involve altered/anti gravity The natural result of gravity is spherical shape. All massive heavenly bodies are near spheres, barring the rotational bulges. Ignore the smaller bodies where there is not enough matter/gravity to cause a spherical shape. Sphere has this property of "Minimum surface area for a given volume". So, gravity is associated with a shape with "Minimum surface area for a given volume" i.e. sphere. Anti gravity (or gravity shielded) is associated with just the opposite - "Maximum surface area for a given volume". Of all shapes, saucer shape has "Maximum surface area for a given volume". Ideally, it is a sheet (plane) that has "Maximum surface area for a given volume", but the sheet would not have place inside it for carrying the stuff. It would not be possible to place gravity altering mechanism inside a sheet. Therefore the most practical shape that associates with altering gravity/space - is saucer shape. So, it is not just a co-incidence that the UFOs are depicted as saucer shaped. This is not to say that the space ships can not be other shapes. They can be and bigger space ships would more likely be other shapes. Once you have a gravity altering mechanism in a saucer shape, then it can be covered with bodies of other more suitable shapes for the purpose of longer travel and comfort, which would include creation of artificial gravity for living beings/things. The smallest (bare minimum) UFOs are more likely to be saucer shaped. These are suitable, and used, for entering the atmosphere of planets. Saucer shape is also more suitable for minimizing the damage by deflecting debris. Bigger ones can be saucer shaped, or any other shapes.

The Nature of Mind

Authors: Edwin Eugene Klingman
Comments: 11 Pages. An essay response to FQXi's asking whether mindless math can give rise to purpose.

Does purpose arise from 'mindless math'? Humans are self-aware and aware of their surroundings, thus conscious. The Darwinian Credo holds that consciousness emerges from increasing complexity. The alternative is an inherently conscious, purposeful universe. How does one decide this issue? The basis of physics is experience, so we analyze mind from this perspective.

Evolution and the Mind of God

Authors: Robert T. Longo
Comments: 8 Pages.

This essay asks the question who, or what, is God. This is not new. Philosophers and religions have made many attempts to understand the nature of God. This essay is different from earlier attempts in that it develops a theory of God based on all known science and our limited understanding of the processes in the universe. It is not necessary to start with the belief that God exists; rather, by following the logic of the essay, it can be concluded that God exists.

A Side Dish of Interesting Matters

This isn't meant as the 'main course'. The 'main course' is what time has to be, and what kind of universe fits with the necessary kinds of time to allow physics as we know it, without contradiction of the models that are used to represent it and without paradox.The following topics are discussed: Complexity Arising, About change, Emergence, Self organization, Evolution, The evolution of consciousness, Causal order of consciousness's effect on external reality, Freewill, Fate and determinism, Causality, storytelling and world view, The laws of nature, Philosophical/ Theological matters, On the simulation hypothesis.The framework of a continually changing uni-temporal Object universe brings together physics at macroscopic and quantum scales, brings physics closer to theological ideas and overcomes many physics and philosophy problems. With wider, considerate communication, rather than being esoteric and insignificant, perhaps the model has further unifying, and liberating potential for human kind.

History Lessons from the 5th Solvay Meeting, 1927

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 54 Pages. Intended for an international meeting in Kiev, September 2017

Largely drawn from “Quantum Theory at the Crossroads : Reconsideringthe1927 Solvay Conference” by Guido Bacciagaluppi and Antony Valentini, but also from several books by Pais (“ Inward Bound” and “Subtle is the Lord”), plus other sources, we examine some of the very contemporary themes as to quantum measurement which were debated in the 5th Solvay meeting. In addition we also discuss some issues given by Roland Omnes in “Understanding Quantum Mechanics” as to the problem of classical and quantum properties, which is at the forefront of the Quantum Gravity issues of how to reconcile semi classical physics with the presumed bridge between Planckian physics (presumably quantum in nature) with the rest of cosmology. The issues argued in part by the Solvay meeting as to Quantum measurements and the competing Pilot theory, as brought up by De Broglie, and how that plays out as to the later Hidden Variables and the alleged determinism foundations of an embedding structure for Quantum physics, still are with us, and make the Solvay meeting, 1927 a stellar event, still worth revisiting 90 years later.

The Map is not the Territory

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 24 Pages. Includes one coloured diagram and coloured variable group identifiers.

The important difference between variables in Object reality, reality existing independently of the mind, sometimes called physical reality has been discussed. Variables have been divided into terrain (t) and Map (M) variables. There has been categorization of terrain and Map variable groups. The groups have been given colour identifiers so that each variable representation can be accompanied by a tally or chart showing the variable groups to which it belongs. Variable profiles (single variable type profile ) and Terrain profiles ( Multiple variable type profile) have been introduced. Variation in Terrain profile over time has been likened to and contrasted with a wave-function and outcome probability distribution. The changing Terrain profile associated with the object under consideration provides a new way of thinking about what is happening. The concepts of truth, logic and knowledge have been discussed and it has been shown that old ways of thinking need to change in order to accommodate the expanded non partial perspective of Object reality. Including superficially contradictory states and non unitary 'property' values and states, at all scales not just the quantum scale. A measurable in physics is a relationship and not a property possessed by an object of itself.

Is Quantum Physics Really Strange?

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 10 Pages. Includes two coloured diagrams

The conclusions from investigations of physics at the quantum realm, and theoretical models fitting the results, have presented that scale of reality as a realm utterly unlike macroscopic material reality, as we 'know' it. The aim of this paper is to show that some the difference between the scales is due to the way in which the quantum scale is considered and portrayed, not actually a difference in the way phenomena are happening.

The General Mechanics of the Moving Objects

Authors: Peng Gao
Comments: 17 Pages.

In the article, we establish a completely new theory of mechanics based on absolute frame of reference, demonstrating negating the theory developed by Albert Einstein based on relative frame of reference. We derive the results that are different from Einstein’s, explaining the phenomenon that can be explained by Einstein’s theory and beyond. The new generalized the theory discovers the principle of the mechanics, with better accuracy between the theoretical prediction and real experimental results compared with Einstein. The article contains 15 sections as the following, 1. The spatial structure of the universe; 2. The absolute and relative frame of reference of Einstein; 3. Absolute four dimensional space time relationship; 4 The rule for the velocity transformation; 5 Length contraction, time dilation and mass reduction; 6. The modification of Newton's law of universal gravitation; 7. The essence of mechanics; 8. Inertial mass and gravitational mass; 9. Gravitational field and acceleration; 10 Mass and energy; 11. “aether”, expansion of the universe and the properties of the light; 12. The charge and absolute mechanics; 13. The modification of Coulomb law; 14. The modification of Matter wave; 15. The verification of the wave equation.

Goal → New Heuristic Model of Ideality: Logos → Coincidentia Oppositorum → Primordial Generating Structure

Authors: Vladimir I.Rogozhin
Comments: 9 Pages. FQXi Essay Contest entry 2017

Fundamental knowledge endures deep conceptual crisis manifested in total crisis of understanding, crisis of interpretation and representation, loss of certainty, troubles with physics, crisis of methodology. Crisis of understanding in fundamental science generates deep crisis of understanding in global society. What way should we choose for overcoming total crisis of understanding in fundamental science? It should be the way of metaphysical construction of new comprehensive model of ideality on the basis of the modified ontology. Result of quarter-century wanderings: sum of ideas, concepts and eidoses, new understanding of space, time, consciousness.

Magic of Physics, Math Tricks and an Observer with His Own Brain

Authors: George Kirakosyan
Comments: 9 pages 2 figures. The article published in FQXi contest

Here we talk that our bitter lessons have been consigned to oblivion. Disputable divisions of physics have degenerated to a kind of elitist - unproductive genre of creativity because of arbitrary, unreasonable methodology. There is an actual opportunity to come to a high-grade realistic science by returning to natural thinking and objective scientific approaches. To do this we need to overcome the imposed firm convictions with tremendous psychological and political significance. De facto, it is banned to do in present physics, by historical or other circumstances unclear to us.

The World is a Point:Physical Application of the Law of Identity

Authors: Lei Shi
Comments: 3 Pages.

When we research the essence of the world, antinomy is found, which goes against the law of identity. In fact, antinomy shows the contradiction between experience and essence, and the law of identity is the most important tool to research the essence of the world. According to antinomy we can establish the incompleteness theorem in physics, which requires that the world model cannot contain any physical difference. According to identity we can get homoorganicity theorem, which requires that any part of the world is same with the whole. Here we show that the world can only be a point.

What is Physics?

Authors: Bill Gaede
Comments: 13 Pages.

Physics has evolved from an attempt by ancient researchers to understand the workings of their immediate surroundings to a body of mathematical descriptions and paradoxical physical interpretations. We have today no rational explanation for the simplest of systems and phenomena, for instance, how a magnet physically attracts another from a distance or by what physical means the Earth prevents the Moon from leaving the Solar System. Not one mathematical physicist can explain in a logical manner why a pen falls to the floor rather than to the ceiling. The equations suggest that ‘mass attracts mass’ or that ‘north attracts south’, but these are mere descriptions. They give us no insight as to the physical mechanisms underlying such phenomena. We trace these shortcomings to the nature of the scientific method inherited primarily from 17th Century researchers. We argue, in essence, that the current version of the scientific method is divorced from authentic Science. Here we propose an alternative – henceforth known as the Rational Scientific Method (capitalized to distinguish it from what is currently regarded as such) – and outline the steps necessary to present rational explanations for physical phenomena.

Historic chronologies & king lists and dendrochronologies (tree rings) agree with two major cycles of (T) 6 orbits per 181 years and (V) 32 orbits per 1001 years where enormous changes occurred on the earth into the Common Era. This proves the idea of a dead gravity (no charge) theory to be incorrect. The age of the earth is just less than 100 million years.

Mind-Body Problem; A Final Solution by Quantum Language

Authors: Shiro Ishikawa
Comments: 7 Pages.

Recently we proposed “quantum language", which was not only characterized as the metaphysical and linguistic turn of quantum mechanics but also the linguistic turn of Descartes=Kant epistemology. If this turn is regarded as progress in the history of Western philosophy, we should study the linguistic mind-body problem more than the epistemological mind-body problem. In this paper we show that to solve the mind-body problem and to propose "measurement axiom" in quantum language are equivalent. Since our approach is within dualistic idealism, we believe that our linguistic solution is the only true solution ( i.e., even if the other solutions exist, they are not in philosophy but in science).

First Clear Definitions of Space, Time and Matter

Authors: Tamas Lajtner
Comments: 18 Pages.

In space-matter model both matter and space have three spatial dimensions. Time is the result of the action-reaction of space and matter. Space is what matter uses as space. Matter is what can exist as matter in the given space. In space-matter model solely through the use of space waves, we can express spatial distance, time and energy. It is possible to express all these phenomena in eVolt, so meters can be converted into seconds or into kgs and vice versa. Saying this, we must realize that there is a surprising gateway between space and matter. Using this approach we can give new definitions of space, matter and time. Our Space we know as Space has the biggest density. Matter has always smaller density. From the viewpoint of a given matter there can be more than one space. Matter is able to use another matter as space, if the proportion of their densities is in a given range. This kind of space has its own time. This time is different from our known time. There are more spaces and more times, and even one given space can have more times.

Some Remarks about Mathematical Structures in Science, Operator Version of General Laplace Principle of Equal Ignorance (GLPEI), Symmetry and too much Symmetry

Authors: Jerzy Hanckowiak

It is suggested that the same form of equations in classical and quantum physics allow to elaborate the same algorithms to find their solutions if the free Fock space (FFS) is used. “The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics” is addressed on the example of the causality principle, (Sec.2). Notes on the role of the fields and their sources, and disposal of the excess of information are set out in Secs 3 and 5. Possible obstacles in constructing quantum gravity are discussed and remedies are proposed in Secs 4, 5 and 6. A connection of symmetries with the Laplace principle of equal ignorance (LPEI) and its operator generalization are considered in Sec.7. The classical and quantum vacuums related to isolation of a system are suggested, (Sec.8)

Aims and Intention from Mindful Mathematics: The Encompassing Physicality of Geometric Clifford Algebra

Authors: Peter Cameron, Michaele Suisse
Comments: 8 Pages.

The emergence of sentience in the physical world - the ability to sense, feel, and respond - is central to questions surrounding the mind-body problem. Cloaked in the modern mystery of the wavefunction and its many interpretations, the search for a solid fundamental foundation to which one might anchor a model trails back into antiquity. Given the rather astounding presumption that abstractions of the mathematician might somehow inform this quest, we examine the role of geometric algebra of 3D space and 4D spacetime in establishing the foundation needed to resolve contentions of quantum interpretations. The resulting geometric wavefunction permits gut-level intuitive visualization, clarifies confusion regarding observables and observers, and provides the solid quantum foundation essential for attempts to address emergence of the phenomenon of sentience.

Examining the Light Clock Argument, Clocks on Planes, Wavelength and Doppler Shift, in Relation to Object and Image Reality

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 8 Pages.

Re-examination of the light clock argument using the idea that for a particular observed phenomenon or object the same physics must be occurring in foundational reality that is the source for the different observations made. I.e. There is the same underlying reality. To correctly extend relativity to light, electricity and magnetism, the concept must be held that those phenomena are, in foundational Object reality, unaffected by alteration of observer viewpoint, and relative motion. Rather than considering events to be happening in space time the reexamination happens using the understanding that the uni-temporal source reality is not seen but it is products of electromagnetic information receipt and processing that are seen.

This essay begins by endeavouring to ask the question "How can mindless mathematical laws give rise to aims and intentions" but quickly runs into difficulties with the question itself (not least that there is an implication that there is no current mathematical law that may be considered to be "mindful"), which requires some in-depth exploration. I then explore what constitutes "Creative Intelligence" - coming to a surprising conclusion that concurs with Maharish Mahesh Yogi's definition.

Paradox and Category Error

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 25 Pages.

Starting with the premise that; the differences between substantial objects and images are not unimportant, as, though they may bear the same object name they are not equivalent. Consideration of methods of making measurements of distance is then given, followed by examination of the distance measurement methods used in “On the Electrodynamics of moving bodies”. The category error of not differentiating between objects and images is shown and identified within Einstein’s paper. It is postulated that that category error has led to a misunderstanding of the physics of relativity, and is cause of the associated paradoxes. Having clarified the categorical difference between material Object reality and product of information processing, Image reality, the paradoxes of relativity are considered making use of that differentiation. Caution regarding magic related to the “what you see is all there is” bias is given.

Comments: Pages.

This paper is focused in the underlying foundational Object reality. It shows that when that underlying reality is considered physics is not so strange as mathematics, used within classical and quantum physics models, would seem to imply. Some philosophical implications regarding; true relations and the appearance of relations, qualities and attributes rather than properties, and the law of non-contradiction are considered. The double slit experiment problem, and the problem of provocation are discussed. The Harry Beck’s Tube map analogy shows how something highly accurate in certain respects and able to produce reliable predictions can also not be an accurate representation of reality.

Uni-Temporalism, the Relation of Human Beings to Time and the ‘future’ of Time in Physics

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 35 Pages.

An examination of time. Presentation of Uni-temporalism, an advance on Presentism that provides both unambiguous foundational sequential time (that is the temporal expression for the continually changing configuration of the material universe) and emergent, information derived, relative time. Some ideas about time are given for comparison. Uni-temporal time is compared with Newtonian time and proper time. The two kinds of time presented dispel the temporal paradoxes. Time reversibility is removed from Classical mechanics if uni-temporal (-Now) time is used instead of Newtonian time. The arrows of time provided by Uni-temporalism are set out. Past, present and future are re-considered. The two kinds of time allow physics using sequential time and physics using relativistic time to co-exist without there being incompatibility or contradiction.

Against Free Will in the Contemporary Natural Sciences

Authors: Martín López-Corredoira
Comments: 27 Pages. invited chapter in the book "Free Will: Interpretations, Implementations and Assessments", to be published by Nova Science Publ.

The claim of the freedom of the will (understood as an individual who is transcendent to Nature) in the name of XXth century scientific knowledge, against the perspective of XVIIIth-XIXth century scientific materialism, is analysed and refuted in the present paper. The hypothesis of reductionism finds no obstacle within contemporary natural sciences. Determinism in classical physics is irrefutable, unless classical physics is itself refuted. From quantum mechanics, some authors argue that free will is possible because there is an ontological indeterminism in the natural laws, and that the mind is responsible for the wave function collapse of matter, which leads to a choice among the different possibilities for the body. However, here I defend the opposite thesis because indeterminism does not imply free will, and because the considerations about an autonomous mind sending orders to the body is against neuroscience or evolutionary theories about human beings. The quantum theory of measurement can be interpreted without the intervention of human minds, but other fields of science cannot contemplate the mentalist scenario. A fatalistic or materialist view, which denies the possibility of a free will, makes much more sense in scientific terms.

Infinite Sets: The Appearance of an Infinite Set Depends on the Perspective of the Observer

Authors: Roger Granet
Comments: 2 Pages.

    This paper discusses how an infinite set would appear to different observers and how this applies to both physics and mathematics.  Consider a set, N, defined as containing an infinite number of discrete, finite-sized elements such as balls.  Any one of these balls can be defined as an internal observer, O.  The balls extend outward in infinite numbers relative to any location and orientation of any internal observer O. That is, wherever O is in the set and in whichever direction O is “looking”, the elements of the set extend without bounds the same potentially infinite distance in all directions relative to O.   To observer O, set N appears as a potentially infinite space composed of discrete, finite-sized elements.   Now, consider a hypothetical second observer, P who is outside the same set N and whose size relative to internal observer O is actually infinite. That is, P is of the same size “scale” as the entire set N, which is actually infinite relative to O.   To observer P, each ball O is infinitesimally small, so that P can not distinguish the boundary of each ball O. Therefore, to P, set N appears as a finite-sized object containing a smooth, infinitely divisible internal space.  The implications of these differing views of the same set depending on the reference frame of the observer are discussed for both mathematics and physics.

H. J. Spencer

Authors: H. J. Spencer
Comments: 145 Pages. A fundamental challenge to one of the pillars of modern physics.

This is the fourth report on a new research programme investigating the electromagnetic interaction. In contrast to the previous paper in this series, which analyzed the continuous interaction of pairs of charged point particles, this paper focuses on the hypothesis that the inter-electron interaction only occurs discontinuously over time. This new hypothesis is in response to the previous results showing that all continuous interaction (force) theories between point particles that exhibit inertial resistance to changes in their motion are inconsistent with asynchronous forms of action-at-a-distance or equivalently, interactions limited to points ‘on their mutual light-cone’. It is shown here that the conventional approach to the special theory of relativity has been based on an implied merger of two distinct but incompatible theories. The continuous electric charge model (now used to develop Maxwell’s Equations of classical electromagnetism) leads directly to Relativistic Transformations of the space and time co-ordinates; while Planck’s 1906/7 Proposal for redefining an inertial point particle’s momentum came to replace classical Newtonian mechanics with its central concept of invariant particle mass. However, both of these theories are fatally flawed: electricity is NOT continuous but is particulate (point electrons with finite and discrete charge and mass values) while Planck’s relativistic derivation relied on a mysterious constant force that contradicts both the inverse square Coulomb force or the Heaviside velocity-sensitive force that are central to electromagnetism. An alternative model is now proposed here for the basic interaction between pairs of electrons that is shown to be consistent with classical electromagnetism and provides an alternative (but now readily understandable) physical explanation for the dynamical results of relativity without requiring the Relativistic transform to redefine the foundations of space and time. Physicists now must make a choice:- they can continue to use continuum mathematics (grounded in the traditional calculus used to describe local but mass-less field theories that cover all of space and time, subject to the bizarre interpretations of relativity). Alternatively, theoretical physics can return to the physical models of impulse interactions between point particles (described by the mathematics of FINITE differences acting within the passive, but common-sense, view of space and time introduced by Newton in the Principia) but now acknowledging that the fundamental interaction is asynchronous. This latter choice means that the TWO interaction times must always be considered in a symmetric manner: the venerable, single-time approach can no longer be viewed as a suitable model of reality.

Continuous Two-Electron Theory of Electromagnetism

Authors: H. J. Spencer
Comments: 121 Pages. This is the next paper in the EM series building on earlier Natural Vectors.

This research programme continues with its fundamental analysis of the electromagnetic interaction. In contrast to the continuous charge model of electricity that is today used as the foundation for presentations of classical electro-magnetism (CEM), this paper now analyzes the continuous interaction of pairs of charged point particles that better reflects the known basis of electricity – electrons. This analysis first demonstrates that all continuous theories of interaction between point particles that exhibit inertial resistance to changes in their motion are inconsistent with all asynchronous action-at-a-distance forms of interaction or equivalently, interactions limited to points on their ‘light-cone’. This research programme is an extension of the Newtonian scheme of classical mechanics that represents the locations of point particles, not by standard algebraic vectors but by a more powerful, non-commutative complex algebra, based on Hamilton’s quaternions, called here ‘Natural Vectors’. This NV representation is extended here from representing a single location (the ‘field point’) to representing the differences between pairs of point objects; this automatically advances the idea that even ‘classical’ electrons must be treated as ‘fermions’ (as this is an anti-symmetric algebraic representation). Adding the assumption of separability of the electromagnetic momentum to the previous single-time version now reproduces Planck’s 1907 infamous proposal (not Einstein’s) for defining relativistic forms of single particle momentum and energy but now in terms of EM electro-kinetic momentum between two particles, in contrast to Planck’s original but unphysical assumption of a constant, mechanical force on a single particle that required the Lorentz transformation. This paper also extends this new two-electron viewpoint to many-body situations involving myriads of pair-wise interactions by showing that classical electromagnetism is a consequence of the statistical effects of very many of these interactions arising from multiple, remote electrons moving within metallic conductors on one or many ‘target’ electrons. A new discrete, many-body approximation model (“Mesoscopic Electrodynamics”) is developed here that is shown to be a covering theory for the standard (continuum) model of CEM. The emphasis here is shifted back from empty space to the actual experiments involving electrical currents in metallic wires that were the real foundation for CEM’s integral and differential equations, which only summarized these effects mathematically but never provided any physical justification or insights. This theory now extends the rival, forgotten (‘continental’) approach to CEM to directly include radiation, as just a long-range induction effect, removing the only advantage previously associated with Maxwell’s field theory. It also links directly to Newtonian mechanics to provide a seamless unity to all of classical physics. These results now demonstrate that, contrary to the orthodox consensus, Maxwell’s Equations (as a field theory) are not a fundamental model for understanding the basic interaction between any types of elementary particles. This view challenges the last 150 years in theoretical physics that has been constructed only on the mathematics of continuous fields, leading to quantum field theories. This approach eliminates the force densities (electric and magnetic fields), the ‘instant’ Coulomb potential and the single-time (‘God-like’) view of nature that have dominated physics for 300 years, only because these ideas could use the simplified (but well-studied) mathematical representation of differential equations. *Surrey B.C.

An Algebraic Representation for Action-at-a=Distance

Authors: H. J. Spencer
Comments: 44 Pages. The first paper in a new research programme investigating the foundations of physics.

A new algebra is introduced that is found to be suitable for representing asynchronous action-at-a-distance. This “Natural Vector” representation is based on Hamilton’s quaternions with the four bases constructed from real (4x4) matrices with the scalar component explicitly including the standard square root of minus one, so that natural vectors operate like a simple non-commuting, complex algebra. This algebra can replace calculus in much physics and directly relates the Wave equation, the Continuity equation and the Flow equation together, which are at the center of mathematical physics. This new representation forms the mathematical foundation for a new research programme that challenges several of the basic assumptions of modern physics that are directly related to the metaphysical “Continuum Hypothesis”. This new form of quaternion algebra described here is found to be mathematically simpler than the somewhat similar biquaternions and appears to be the natural algebraic form for describing ‘relativistic’ interactions that implicitly incorporate the asynchronous delays occurring in the electromagnetic interaction. These complex four-component vectors are inherently simpler than other alternatives, such as Clifford algebra or Minkowski 4-vectors – they are more physically transparent than tensor calculus. Natural vectors are always anti-symmetric for two point-particles, so they form a natural fermionic representation even for ‘classical’ electrons; their anti-commutative properties lead naturally into a suitable representation for quantum mechanics. The new focus is on the interaction between two electrons at two different times, rather than other standard theories centered on a single particle or field-point in empty space, at one single time. Asynchronous inter-particle interactions, like those found in electromagnetism, are here represented by natural vectors that are both separable and temporally invariant. This is the first paper in a new research programme investigating the foundations of physics; this programme is aimed to recognize that continuum assumptions in physics (used everywhere since Isaac Newton created calculus for particle motion) needs to be replaced with discrete mathematics. *SPSI, Surrey, B.C.

Null and Zero: What Does Algebra Tell us About Physics, the Universe, and Everything?

Authors: Alexander Balatsky
Comments: 33 Pages.

The universe is considered to be a logical system amenable to description in terms of dimensionless physically meaningful quantities united by common algebraic relationships. This insight allows us to reveal that: (i) time and space are interrelated via a certain causal order; (ii) this order arises via self-organization of void underlying the quantum structure of time-space; (iii) the corresponding symmetry and conservation law are manifest in the principles of causality, least time and least action; (iv) the causal relationship between void, time and space is amenable to analytical description in terms of a basic scale invariance of the universe.

The Ancient and Modern Knowledge

Authors: Dragan Turanyanin
Comments: 7 Pages. in Serbian, Latin. Published under the title “Drevno i moderno znanje” (vol. 24, p.48, 1990) in the contemporary ex-Yugoslav journal “Cultures of the East” (Kulture Istoka, http://srednjiput.rs/knjige/#kulture).

This article rather bravely argues about a very strong parallel, if not even identity, between the so called three gunas i.e. rajas, tamas and sattwa (as accepted and explained through the teachings of almost all the ancient spiritual systems of India, both orthodox and unorthodox) and the three well known modern physical so called universal constants h, G and c, respectively. The idea, however, goes in contrast to the Bohm-Capra’s views of the parallelism. Also, a universal three-partition view of Nature is noticed and accepted. Few purely gnoseo-epistemological questions are raised on the same basis as well. The connection and parallel of gunas, i.e. the constants, with the ancient idea of both matter and space-time discontinuity on some very deep level is mentioned, too. The author is convinced that the main thesis of the existence of the huge, universal cultural cycles (or better say spiral) has been supported this way.

A New Nature for Light

Authors: Djamel ABDELMOULA
Comments: 7 Pages.

This work is a part of unpublished ideas about the fundamental physics and there evolution over time. In this paper, I started by speaking about light and its nature as the cornerstone of physics. Then we describe the evolution of ideas about light and interpretations of its nature in terms of waves and particles; A duality which lead us to suggest a new nature of light at a halfway between these two interpretations. We reinvented the photon that we renamed 3photillon". However, it remains to test this new approach in the interpretation of light-related phenomena. An attempt to interpret Young's interference fringes is made on the basis of this new conception of light and a new interpretation of the Planck constant has emerged naturally from this new nature.

Ramon Llull’s Art and Structure of Nature

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr
Comments: 14 Pages.

Around 700 years ago Ramon Llull emerged from a cave in Mount Randa, Majorca, after receiving divine illumination inspiring him to produce a geometric art describing a universal science. The geometry of his art is an elaboration of IFA divination and the I Ching from the ancient past. Now it is clear that nature is described by General Relativity and the Standard Model, which are unified by E8 geometry in the art of Real Clifford Algebras not only with structure inherited from IFA and the I Ching but also with Llullian art geometry. Ramon Llull used his geometric art to show the unity of the religions he knew, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but he also knew that his art contained further possibilites, such as a unified model of the structure of nature, even though it would take 700 years for experimental and theoretical physics to advance enough to show clearly their relationship to Ramon Llull’s geometric art.

History of Astronomy

Authors: Rochelle Forrester
Comments: 5 Pages.

The ultimate cause of much historical, social and cultural change is the gradual accumulation of human knowledge of the environment. The human environment has a particular structure so that human knowledge of the environment is acquired in a particular order. The structure of the universe and the nature of the human sensory apparatus ensured that humans initially believed, the earth was not moving and the sun orbited the earth, a system known as the Ptolemaic system. Suggestions the earth spun on its axis and orbited the sun were counter intuitive and generally not accepted until new instruments such as the telescope provided new information which suggested the earth spun on its axis and orbited the sun in elliptical orbits which became known as the Newtonian system. Improved observations showed the Newtonian system was wrong and General Relativity which had the earth and other planets orbiting the sun in circular orbits, in curved four-dimensional space-time, became the accepted view of the universe. The naked eye explanation of the universe was accepted first, and more complex knowledge acquired later, using better instruments, led to the Newtonian system and then General Relativity. The order of these belief systems was inevitable as new methods of observing the universe became available which provided new information about the universe. This is an example of how human social and cultural history follows a particular path, a path that is determined by the structure of the human environment.

Space, Time and Information: Toys in the hands of Lord Venkatesha

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 9 Pages.

Building on some of the most phenomenal theories and observations of science, this article probes deep into the nature of the three fundamental entities of the universe: space, time and information. Through a series of implications and inferences involving Indian Spirituality, one sees these entities in the three Shaktis of Iccha, Jnana and Kriya, as well as in the Avataras of Varaha, Narasimha and Rama-Krishna-Kalki. Importantly, one sees these three entities as the three ‘toys’ – Shankha, Chakra and Thirunaamam of the Lord Venkatesha, who is the Universal Mother Herself as the Kali-Yuga salvation yielding form of Baalaa.

Mass, Force, & Energy: A New Formulation

Authors: Stanley James Speck
Comments: 24 Pages.

What is energy? This question, as Richard Feynman has pointed out, has never been given a satisfactory explanation. What energy “is” - in some ultimate sense – is, strangely enough, still an open question. In this speculative venture which is both a physical and philosophical quest, we propose a definite and perhaps startling answer: Energy is not something which causes motion; it is motion itself, or rather, it is a “quantity of motion” calculated as the sum of the speeds of all the particles in the system. Mass is a quantity of motion confined or bound to a certain region of space. Force is the rate of change of a quantity of motion when an object accelerates. Any “quantity of motion” can thus be calculated as Kinetic Energy or as Mass (or as Work), depending upon the needs and circumstances of the inquiry. We give a lucid, step by step explanation of this idea, and suggest that motion is not an accidental quality, but ontologically fundamental. We call the ultimate object which is moving a ‘particle point,’ which, unlike the geometric point, is in any region of space finite in number. The energy in any finite region of space is consequently the number particle-points multiplied by their speed, or more precisely, by their speed squared. The speed of all such particles is constant and uniform: the speed of light. We lead the skeptical reader through these formulations, accounting for momentum, inertia, and entropy along the way. In the end, as many questions are raised as are answered, but it is an open road, as it should be. massforceenergy@gmail.com

Niels Bohr's Philosophy: The Epistemological Lesson of Quantum Mechanics

Authors: Ian von Hegner
Comments: 44 Pages.

Niels Bohr thought that what quantum mechanics has taught us is not only to understand something new, but also a new meaning of the term “to understand”. Bohr wanted to free himself from ontology by putting emphasis on epistemology; i.e. on certain conditions for observation and description. He believed that the epistemological lesson of quantum mechanics was a crucial one. Basically it has two important aspects. 1. Bohr's philosophy leads to a break with the so-called correspondence theory for truth and meaning. It states that true propositions are descriptions of a world that is independent of our observations; i.e. that on a regular basis one can compare language with reality, that is, in language compare the two areas against each other. Bohr believed that this did not make sense, since in many situations we cannot add meaning to a world that has a "an sich" structure (the thing-in-itself), which in turn can be depicted when observed. 2. All knowledge is attained under certain conditions for description. Bohr thought that the long-lasting criterion for valid knowledge is that we can communicate it unambiguously to each other. When Bohr emphasised that "we are suspended in language" in the sense that all knowledge determines what we can say about the world in an understandable way, and not what the world actually is, this must be understood in the sense that we only know the world as recognised; i.e., structured on the basis of the conditions for description, to which we are, as part of the world, necessarily are subjected to. Bohr's emphasis on conditions for descriptions invalidates the well-known distinction between analytic and synthetic propositions. An important feature of the descriptive use of ordinary language, as well as in classical physics, is that description is based on a dividing line between subject and object. This results in idealism and materialism not being tenable positions. Furthermore, it is such that we cannot use the designation of things independently of the designation of time and space. Logical principles are only meaningfully applied in situations relating to our conditions for observation. So based on inspiration from Bohr, Favrholdt developed a more adequate and comprehensive philosophy, where he, among other things, states that all humans possess a fundamental language, underlying all languages. This constitutes a number of concepts – the core – where the correct use is dictated by the structure of the world, which humans learn through sensory perception and action.

Geometric Clifford Algebra and Quantum Interpretation of the Proton's Anomalous Magnetic Moment (poster)

Authors: Michaele Suisse, Peter Cameron
Comments: Pages.

The role of the anomalous moment in the geometric algebra of proton topological mass generation suggests that the anomaly is not an intrinsic property of the free space proton, but rather a topological effect of applying the electromagnetic bias field required to define the eigenstates probed by the magnetic moment measurement. Quantum interpretations strive to explain emergence of the world we observe from formal quantum theory. This variant on the canonical measurement problem is examined in the larger context of quantum interpretations. v1 of this poster was presented to the 22nd International Spin Symposium, Urbana-Champaign (2016) A more detailed presentation of this content may be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyM4cZgSprI

Физика: Кризис и Возможный Прорыв (Physics; the Crisis and a Possible Breakthrough)

Authors: George Kirakosyan
Comments: 263 pages with the appendix, Russian language

В книге даются вразумительные ответы на дискуссионные, глобальные вопросы физики относящиеся к сущности элементарных частиц, феномена гравитации, физического смысла квантовых и релятивистских теорий. Нынешнее кризисное состояние в проблемных разделах физики и неутихающая критика в ее адрес представлены в книге, как следствия неэффективной аналитической методологии и отсутствия единой базовой концепции. Старая проблема физической науки, дуализм в законах природы (причинных и квантовых), объясняется произвольностью интерпретации соответствующего круга явлений. Показывается путь ее решения и концептуального объединения, искусственно разделенных ныне, двух частей фундаментальной науки - классической и формальной физики. Вырисовывающаяся в книге картина мировосприятия основывается на естественных суждениях и отчетливых количественных соображениях, приводящих к логически завершенному мировоззрению. Представленные пояснения и простые решения выглядят неожиданными, вопреки бытующему убеждению о чрезвычайной сложности фундаментальных задач физики. Внятная трактовка изучаемых вопросов, с реалистической точки зрения, глубоко отличается от современных формальных теорий, основанных на разобщенных, абстрактных гипотезах. С учетом большого количества решенных задач фундаментального значения и конкретные результаты, представленный труд может оказаться востребованным как среди оппозиционно настроенных мыслителей, так и в официальной науке.

Life Against Heat Death

Authors: Michail Zak
Comments: 13 Pages.

This work is inspired by the discovery of a new class of dynamical system described by ODE coupled with their Liouville equation. These systems called self-controlled since the role of actuators is played by the probability produced by the Liouville equation. Following the Madelung equation that belongs to this class, non-Newtonian properties such as randomness, entanglement, and probability interference typical for quantum systems have been described. Special attention was paid to the capability to violate the second law of thermodynamics, which makes these systems neither Newtonian, nor quantum. It has been shown that self-controlled dynamical systems can be linked to mathematical models of livings. The discovery of isolated dynamical systems that can decrease entropy in violation of the second law of thermodynamics, and resemblances of these systems to livings implies that Life can slow down heat death of the Universe, and that can be associated with the Purpose of Life.

Spaces and Velocities

Authors: Tamas Lajtner
Comments: 6 Pages.

Space is what the matter senses as space. Space is not depend on its texture. It can be made out of matter or non-matter. Time is one characteristic of the given space. Using this new approach, we can find substantial spaces that exist in reality, but we have never considered these as spaces. In these spaces the faster-than-light communication is reality. This paper is based on space-matter theory, but it can be understood without knowing this. Space-matter theory describes how space and matter create time. So matter that appears as space appears as time, too. This conclusion is very new, but it is an important part of the space-matter theory.

Stoe Emergence

Authors: John C. Hodge
Comments: 5 Pages.

Emergent philosophy developed from the studies of biology, life, societies, and computer patterns. The Scalar Theory of Everything (STOE) model posits emergence theory models the universe. The STOE was developed from two basic agents and their interaction to the complexity of the cosmological scale. This model has described many mysteries of standard models including the structure of galaxy clusters, the microwave background temperature, rotation curves, asymmetric rotation curves, the relation of central mass parameters to outer galaxy parameters, galaxy redshift, periodic galaxy redshift, and the Pioneer Anomaly on the large scale. The STOE also suggests a photon model of light that describes Young's experiment, that rejected all wave models of light, and that described the results of the Hodge Experiment. It served as a base for explaining the Stern-Gerlach experiment. The STOE model made successful predictions of the Pioneer Anomaly and of the Hodge Experiment.

An Examination of Measurement Relevant to Entanglement and Ontology: Answers to Some Long Standing Questions

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: Pages.

This paper is about how measurement has been misunderstood and that has led onto further misunderstanding. It has given the impression of 'spooky action at a distance' and made it seem that Bell's inequalities argument supporting that must be correct. An argument is presented here, considering whether some measurements are not informing about the pre-existing properties of particles; but rather provoking responses that are providing the measurement outcomes. The mathematically impossible predictions for quantum experiments when pre-existing properties are assumed is looked at, while provocations are considered. That is, with regard to different orientations of response being of non-equivalent type and therefore not justifiably, added and subtracted; Calling into question the applicability of Bell's inequalities. Different categories of measurement are given. Entanglement is discussed in the light of the previous measurement arguments. Concluding that entanglement is due to symmetry, shown in same first measurement outcomes fitting predictions. There is refutation of faster than light communication, as a measurement is a response to the provocation supplied by the apparatus, not a preexisting property that has come into being upon first partner measurement. An ontological background for QM, relativity and perception is discussed. The Harry Beck London underground 'Tube' map is used in an argument that high predictive power does not necessarily equate to complete correspondence with underlying reality, only an aspect or some aspects of it.

Quantum Interpretations seek to explain observables from formal theory. Impedances govern the flow of energy, are helpful in such attempts. An earlier note documented first efforts to resolve the interpretational ambiguities and contentions from the practical perspective of our model-based approach. In the interim, discovery of the deep connections between the impedance model and geometric Clifford algebra has shed new light on the measurement problem and its manifestations, which we revisit here.

The Relativity Theory by A. Einstein as an Example for Questionable Mechanisms in Science

Authors: J. Schwander
Comments: 36 pages in German

This article describes questionable mechanisms and mistakes in science. The Relativity Theory (RT) which A. Einstein published will be used as an example: The SRT (Special RT) in 1905 and the GRT (General RT) in 1915. Both theories have been experimentally proven numerous times and are an essential basis of modern physics. The article shows that the constancy of light velocity does not correlate with reality. The actual movement of an object in a defined space matches its imaginary reflection we perceive in our brain only from an internal, but not from an external view. [internal = orientation on space where the object moves; external = outside of that space] With regard to light, external observers or measuring instruments do not register the distance of photons. Instead, they see the resultant movement of these light particles and the system (space) in which they are in motion. The differences between the external and internal view are therefore not caused by photons or waves, but because of observers that orientate on different spaces (coordinate systems). Comparing both views, postulates arise that completely contradict a rational logic. Therefore, diverse statements of the RT do not withstand a critical examination. Moreover, we cannot use mathematics to verify if axioms (non-proven assumptions) of a theory are correct. Therefore, the various pieces of evidence of the RT state nothing about whether their bases accord with reality or not. Hence, this theory is based on the belief of correctness of assumptions, which can be refuted. The second part of the article will describe former and current scientific mistakes. Why they occur and endure will be analyzed. The factors are the belief in science, disregard of fundamentals of scientific work, questionable development in research and teaching, as well as skepticism towards new theses when a theory has already been established. This leads to fatal problems in the environmental sector. At the end of the article, a fundamental system change is suggested, which is indispensable in order to obtain our long-term livelihood.

Reality in the Context of Physics (Ricp): an Explanatory Framework: Bridging the Pitfalls of Category Error, Dispelling Paradox and Excluding Magic from Physics

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 42 pages including abstract and references

This work provides solutions to a number of long standing problems in physics, by identifying category error as an issue and providing an explanatory framework. Category error is indicated within Einstein’s work on relativity. Having addressed that, the associated paradoxes are dispelled. Other quandaries are considered, with the potential for category error and the explanatory framework in mind: Such as; the nature of time, the arrow(s) of time, causality, what is the future? Having proposed the need for an ontic, absolute, foundational reality there is relevant discussion of counterfactual definiteness and the law of non-contradiction. Discussion of true absolute relations in contrast to relations within ‘space-time’ images follows. A short note of caution on the risk of allowing magic into physics precedes a list giving the facts and problems in physics, demonstrating the need for an explanatory framework. The penultimate section, (before References), is the word definitions and key to abbreviations to be used in conjunction with the accompanying 5 diagrams that illustrate the explanatory framework. The framework impacts on many areas of physics. In particular relativity and QM; providing the ontic foundation necessary for both, allowing them to co-exist without contradiction. It also overlaps with other science areas in particular the biology and neuroscience of sensory perception.

A New Model of Physics

Authors: Ratikanta Das
Comments: Affiliated to Bhadrak Institute of Engineering Technology, Bhadrak-756113,Odisha,India., 09 Pages.

Abstract: According to this model, particle-antiparticle pair are created when our flat three dimensional (3D) universe; which is supposed to be a grand 3D hyper spherical surface separating two super grand 4D worlds on either side; is deformed locally into two sides forming two 4D Gaussian structures. The model stands on classical mechanics, but it supports quantum mechanics by deriving Schrödinger equation and de Broglie hypothesis. The model gives new ideas and simple explanations of some puzzles of physics such as: internal structure of fundamental particle, origin of mass, origin of charge, origin of strong force and wave- particle duality of matter and radiation. The model also describes a 4D classical technique (named as spiral transformation) for conversion of radiation into matter and vice versa. Again using external structures of particles, the model gives simple answers to questions: why electron-positron pair annihilates but electron proton pair forms a stable combination and why n-n or p-p combination is unstable in spite of strong attractive force but n-p combination (deuteron) is stable.

Time Comes Into Being if Two Different Three-Dimensional Spaces Meet

Authors: Tamas Lajtner
Comments: 13 Pages. New definition of time. New axiom of physics.

Time comes into being if two different three-dimensional spaces meet. This is the definition of time in the space-matter theory. Two different three-dimensional spaces exist if their elements have actions at different scales. The actions have their minimum and maximum values in the given dimensions which cannot be changed without loosing the given dimension. Space can be converted into matter and matter can be converted into space, but space and matter have two different ranges of actions. Time is the meeting point of space and matter. The space-matter model allows us to find the common root of space, matter and time. In space-matter model matter causes space waves. Solely through the use of space waves, we can express spatial distance, time and energy. It is possible to express all these phenomena in eVolt, so meter can be converted into second or into kg and vice versa.

Schödinger’s Cat and the Red Herring

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: Pages.

Exploring why the Schödinger’s cat thought experiment is not a suitable model/analogy of quantum physics. Measurables such as orientation of rotation, velocity, energy, momentum are relational. What the state or value is found to be depends upon the relation with the observed or measured entity by which a singular outcome is obtained. (or at the macroscopic scale, when vision or hearing is involved the relation to the potential sensory stimuli, signals received and processed into what is seen.) Whereas an intrinsic state of being is not relational but independent. Decayed and non decayed a particle are different from each other because the decayed particle has lost something and is therefore not an identical system to the un-decayed. It might be regarded as a different object because that change has happened.

Musique et Science

Authors: F. M. Sanchez
Comments: 23 Pages. in french

The Planck thermal law parameters, physical parameters, Monster order and Musical numbers are interconnected with canonic economic numbers. This permits to connect the four forces parameters, with the Eddington's electrical constant 137 playing a central musical role. The Monster is associated with the Grandcosmos ruled by base 3, while the Baby-Monster is associated with the observable Universe ruled by base 2. This refutes the Primordial Big Bang model and its anthropic dreams, so discarding the unnecessary Multiverse hypothesis. Eddington's and string theories are rehabilitated and the Kotov absolute clock is also confirmed. The 26 sporadic groups are implied, connecting the four force parameters with the special super-string number 496, whose square is compatible with the Higgs/Electron mass ratio, so confirming the standard model. This means that Physics is musical arithmetics, so that Intelligent Life is universal.

Authors: Ratikanta Das
Comments: Two pages

Out of twenty new ideas as mentioned below and described in author’s article ‘A Non-standard Model of Physics’ (available at vixra.org/abs/1806.0197), first three are fundamental assumptions of the new model- a four dimensional model that can explain or interpret successfully a good number of fundamental laws, puzzles or phenomena of modern physics. These explanations and interpretations, supported by large number of intuitive ideas, must not be regarded as accidental coincidences and we have to think a lot before accepting or discarding this new model which is much different from other models due to presence of extra space dimension.

A Non-standard Model of Physics

Authors: Ratikanta Das
Comments: 20 pages

This new model, which is quite different from standard model of physics, asserts that our universe is four dimensional created by two kinds of four dimensional (4D) hyper spherical particles and every object in universe moves as wave due to local transverse motion of these 4D particles. The new model supports an alternate cosmology quite different from ‘The hypothesis of expanding universe with big bang origin’. Everyone will be surprised to know that theories and equations obtained from this new cosmology are able to give simple explanations of many puzzles of physics such as: internal structure of fundamental particle, origin of mass, origin of charge, origin of strong force, wave- particle duality of matter and radiation and some others. Our new model stands on classical mechanics, but it supports quantum mechanics by deriving Schrödinger equation and de Broglie hypothesis. The model also describes a four dimensional classical technique (named as spiral transformation) for conversion of radiation into matter and vice versa. According to our new model fundamental particles are created when four dimensional space deforms locally and equal magnitude of charges of fundamental particles is due to their similar shape. The model also gives an expression for unified Coulomb and strong force. It explains why electron-positron pair annihilates but electron-proton pair forms a stable combination and why n-n or p-p combination is unstable in spite of strong attractive force but n-p combination (deuteron) is stable.

One Approach to Understanding the Big Picture [reality]

Authors: John Raymond
Comments: 9 Pages.

Abstract: I have constructed an illustrative work written more especially for people who may care to look at wider reality and our associated lives. This is in a different manner from which you have probably heard before. This is a philosophical document that may also be useful for student perusal. I think that it is important that young students are encouraged to not be afraid to think about more than just mainstream relativity science. There is room in physics for informational science along the lines that I have written on your behalf today. It is called sub-quantum physics. I say that Big Picture Reality may have informationally emerged from an imaginary jigsaw like matrix of information before the Big Bang. I say that information before the Big Bang is virtual and information after the Big bang is real. I talk about how virtual and real information may come together to help us to understand how our universe might work as well as how it may impact upon our daily lives. This includes how we might make the types of decisions that we do and subsequently behave. conceptscience@bigpond.com

A Fundamental Description of the Universe and Its Associated Workings

Authors: John Raymond
Comments: 48 Pages.

Abstract: Mainstream physics typically ignores the energy type condition of ontological-reality and its associated effects after the Big Bang explosion. This includes the holistic universal real life condition and its associated units of influences as well, which includes nature. I propose that by considering the effects of the universe’s four primary informational energy types it is possible to ontologically develop a meaningful reference frame of local and non-local information to satisfy this contemporary scientific anomaly. I further suggest that my approach provides indicative insight into what might be the energy-type of the conditionless-void matrix of reality as well. This is all that “IS”. I believe that following the release of the energy-type of the Big Bang the Big Bang itself became the point of singularity for all the conditions, influences and effects that constitute the universe that scientists theorise it probably is. I propose that the primary energy effect of the Big Bang was an ontological irreducible one. I believe that this irreducible energy effect provides the essential conditions of all universal life forms and their associated informational meaning. The human mind is an energy type that is informationally representative of the wider irreducible energy type. This presentation seeks to structurally demonstrate this entangled holistic-reality condition. conceptscience@bigpond.com

Zeno's Paradox and the Planck Length. The Fine Structure Constant and The Speed of Light

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 3 Pages.

In this short paper we look at some interesting relationships between Zeno's paradox, the Planck length, the speed of light, and the fine structure constant. Did you know it takes 144 Zeno steps to reduce the speed of light to Planck length speed? Did you know it takes 137 Zeno steps to go from alpha*c to Planck length speed? And interestingly it is 7 steps between 144 and 137. We assume this is merely a coincidence, but it is often assumed that there are likely a maximum of 137 elements, the last one being the ``Feynmanium." And there are considered to be 7 orbital shells. We do not claim this explains anything particular in physics, but we also do not exclude the possibility that there could be something meaningful in it. Are these patterns purely numerically coincidences, or could they be a link to deeper understanding of other patterns related to physics, like the periodic table? Whatever the answer may be, it is interesting to look at Zeno's paradox in relation to the Planck length.

The Unifying Theory: A New Theory of the Universe

Authors: Bader Binkhudhayr
Comments: 16 Pages.

Our understanding of motion has been influenced by the assumption that external and invisible forces act upon matter to cause acceleration. In this article, I refute the validity of this convention and propose an alternative perception that suggests matter's independence. That change in perspective gives rise to important principles and equations that contribute to resolving the conflict between classical and quantum mechanics, unifying the explanations for universal forces and explaining the Lorentz transformation. I start by introducing a unit, a number of fundamental particles, that replaces mass. Then, I suggest that motion is quantized with a frequency equal to speed divided by a variation of Planck's Length. Finally, I introduce a single formula that describes gravity and electromagnetism.

Physics Beyond the Standard Model: a Reductionistic Approach

Authors: Victor Paromov
Comments: 12 pages, 3 figures

The Standard Model (SM) is the most useful theory of elementary particle interactions. Unfortunately, the SM cannot be unified with the theory of general relativity (GR) and has a number of ad hoc parameters. The full unification “beyond the SM” presents an important problem of modern theoretical physics. The SM analysis from the materialistic positions shows a number of fundamental inconsistencies of great philosophical significance. In addition to the long-debated philosophical problems of quantum mechanics, the SM has a problem of the “composite” elementary particles. If elementary, a particle should be stable and “unbreakable”, which is not the case with the five quarks, two leptons, three weak bosons, and the Higg’s particle. In addition, the existence of the neutrino raises questions. Thus, it is logical to expect that a successful unification concept will support the reduction of the SM elementary set. Surprisingly, no unification theory so far can support such a reduction, on the contrary, all the mainstream unifications including superstring theories tend to replace the SM set with an increased, not decreased number of elementary components. The modified Einsteinian concept of curved spacetime, the General Principe of Interaction (GPI) proposed recently along with the Fractal spacetime concept (FSC) does support the proposed reduction. The GPI-based unification allows, in general, the understanding of all the four types of interaction with the spacetime geometry. However, the quantum field descriptions of the particle interactions required by the compact extradimensional geometry are in principle incompatible with the classic field descriptions of the gravitation required by the “normal” geometry. Thus, neither a GPI-based theory nor any other theory can bring a full unification within a single theoretical framework. Nevertheless, the GPI-based description of particle interactions will be indispensable for solving the number of important philosophical problems of quantum physics.

宇宙是大爆炸而来吗?

Authors: Liu Ran
Comments: 11 Pages.

大爆炸理论有很多合理成分,但也有不完备的地方,任何人都有完备它的权利,只要你能证明它。科学是为充满好奇心的人而生,而非名利之徒。 宇宙诞生于一个卵,和所有生命的诞生都一样。

A New Nature for Light

Authors: Djamel Abdelmoula
Comments: 6 Pages.

This work is a part of unpublished ideas about fundamental physics and there evolution over time. In this paper, I started by speaking about light and its nature as the cornerstone of physics. Then we describe the evolution of ideas about light and interpretations of its nature in terms of waves and particles; A duality which lead us to suggest a new nature of light at a halfway between these two interpretations. We reinvented the photon that we renamed "photillon". However, it remains to test this new approach in the interpretation of light-related phenomena. An attempt to interpret Young's interference fringes is made on the basis of this new conception of light and a new interpretation of the Planck constant has emerged naturally from this new nature.

Spaces and Velocities

Authors: Tamas Lajtner
Comments: 7 Pages.

Space is what matter uses as space. Space is not dependent on its texture. It can be made out of matter or non-matter. Time is one characteristic of the given space. Using this new approach, we can find substantial spaces that exist in reality, but we have never considered these as spaces. In these spaces the faster-than-light communication is reality. This paper is based on space-matter theory, but it can be understood without knowing this. Space-matter theory describes how space and matter create time. So matter that appears as space appears as time, too. This conclusion is very new, but it is an important part of the space-matter theory.

An Examination of Measurement Relevant to Entanglement and Ontology: Answers to Some Long Standing Questions.

Authors: Georgina Woodward
Comments: 20 Pages.

This paper is about how measurement has been misunderstood and that has led onto further misunderstanding. It has given the impression of ‘spooky action at a distance’ and made it seem that Bell’s inequalities argument supporting that must be correct. An argument is presented here, considering whether some measurements are not informing about the pre-existing properties of particles; but rather provoking responses that are providing the measurement outcomes. The mathematically impossible predictions for quantum experiments when pre-existing properties are assumed is looked at, while provocations are considered. That is, with regard to different orientations of response being of non-equivalent type and therefore not justifiably, added and subtracted; calling into question the applicability of Bell’s inequalities. Different categories of measurement are given. Entanglement is discussed in the light of the previous measurement arguments. Concluding that entanglement is due to symmetry, shown in same first measurement outcomes fitting predictions. There is refutation of faster than light communication, as a measurement is a response to the provocation supplied by the apparatus, not a preexisting property that has come into being upon first partner measurement. An ontological background for QM, relativity and perception is mentioned and reference made to the RICP explanatory framework. The Harry Beck London underground ‘Tube’ map is used in an argument that high predictive power does not necessarily equate to complete correspondence with underlying reality, only an aspect or some aspects of it.

Gravitational Wave Miracles?

Authors: D. Chakalov
Comments: 2 Pages. One reference added and text expanded.

The idea of gravitational wave (GW), suggested by Albert Einstein in 1916, still poses outstanding challenges, which have to be resolved by the theoretical physics community as soon as possible.

A New Model of Physics

Authors: Ratikanta Das
Comments: 13 pages

Abstract: Our new model supports an alternate cosmology quite different from the hypothesis of expanding universe with big bang origin. Everyone will be surprised to know that theories and equations obtained from this new cosmology are able to give simple explanations of many puzzles of physics such as: internal structure of fundamental particle, origin of mass, origin of charge, origin of strong force, wave- particle duality of matter and radiation and some others. Our new model stands on classical mechanics, but it supports quantum mechanics by deriving Schrödinger equation and de Broglie hypothesis. The model also describes a 4D classical technique (named as spiral transformation) for conversion of radiation into matter and vice versa. According to this model, particle-antiparticle pair are created when our flat three dimensional (3D) universe; which is supposed to be a grand 3D hyper spherical surface separating two super grand 4D worlds on either side; is deformed locally into two sides forming two 4D structures. The model also gives an expression for unified Coulomb and strong force.
