A Fourteen Point Conceptual Description of Space and How and Why it Works in the Manner that it Does

Authors: John Raymond
Comments: 9 Pages.

Abstract I believe there is no such thing as a single unity model in Physics. It is far too complicated and beyond our understanding to describe, or demonstrate or test all theoretical possibilities, probabilities and everyday actualities events going on in the widest realms of informational physics. I have bundled together ideas that might somehow provide a guide for the creation of new lines of thinking with respect to the understanding, description and demonstration of how wider reality physics might come together and work in the manner that it does. Some of the ideas presented here are not new to physics and some of them are. Those that are new relate to ideas that I have developed and deeply thought about which might be worthy of future consideration and perhaps testing in science. The fourteen points relate both to macro- physics and micro -physics. email: conceptscience@bigpond.com

Intention Physics

Authors: Vincenzo Peluso
Comments: 58 Pages.

A Theory of everything must spring from a metaphysics but must necessarily rest on logics. The aim of this paper is to show the theory of everything: it needs a new conceptual framework, a new geometry, a new mind, a new language. A critical examination of the conceptions of memory, movement, time and space brings to light the primitive space where relativistic physics and quantum mechanics can meet. Furthermore, it highlights the distinction between the true time that opens in the decision between the previous moment and the successive one, and the mnemonic time, trace spatialised in the moment, in which the evolution of the emergent phenomena is reflected. Finally, recognizing space, time, electricity and gravitation as four different aspects of one sole substance, we come to the only unit measure and to the only equation that, devoid of singularity, unifies all the natural interactions, without disagreement with any experimental result, and throws light on the shape and origin of the universe and on matter organization.

Principles Of《Universal and Unified Physics》

Authors: Wei Xu
Comments: 48 Pages.

Abstract: The Principles are human wisdoms of our ultimate philosophy, scientific theories and empirical knowledge that give birth to 《Universal and Unified Physics》[1]. Since inauguration, it is now strikingly breaking forth systematically from the philosophy of natural laws to the unification of the entire traditional, classic and contemporary physics, and gracefully representing the triple essences of:

  1. Laws of universe as Philosophy of Nature,
  2. Framework of nature as Infrastructure of Universe,
  3. Hierarchy of horizon structures as Topology of Physics.

By exploring the profound principles behind the workings of the theory, we abstract each context of the laws philosophically, define their terminologies revelationally, derive the scientific theories mathematically, and testify the “artifacts” empirically, shown as the following approaches.

  1. Chapter I: Abstracts principles of Philosophy of Nature and reveals secrets of Topology of Universe and Horizon Hierarchy of Worlds, predominantly Laws of YinYang processes and of Event Evolutions. (Designed for philosophers using methodology of “divine inspirations by heart”)
  2. Chapter II: Illustrates how the Infrastructure of Universe is developed as the mathematical framework to carry out Universal Field Equations and give rise to the foundations of physical Horizons. (Designed for scientists using methodology of “research thoughts by brain”)
  3. Chapter III: Testifies why the theory can unify our modern physics, conclude numerous groundbreakings, and declare as Universal and Unified Physics. (Designed for empiricism using methodology of “controlled experiments by technology”)

Therefore, readers will gain their confidences in development of our future sciences concisely and effectively at the methodology of: 

       Philosophy    ⇒     Scientific Theory    ⇐⇒     Observation and Experiment

A Universe Made of Stories

Authors: Philip Gibbs
Comments: 10 Pages. FQXi essay contest 2017

We know that some physical phenomena can be derived from a more basic substratum. Heat is a manifestation of the kinetic energy of atoms. Atoms are more fundamental than the laws of thermodynamics, but atomic physics in turn is derived from the interactions of more primitive components. Is fundamentality then a relative concept with no absolute bottom, or is there a fundament of physical law which is not derived from anything deeper? Does physics perhaps circle back on itself in recursive fashion? “Fundamental” is an adjective to describe a level of reality that is not derived from anything else. Fundamental laws are not in any way accidental or arbitrary. They must be as they are, because they could not be any other way. If such a level of reality exists, then how can it be explained? Do we just have to accept it as axiomatic? Does it emerge out of nothing? These questions seem unanswerable but we must not accept defeat so quickly. The universe exists, so there must be answers. Why would those answers be incomprehensible to us? I sketch some answers choosing information, events, symmetry, quantisation and stories as fundamental concepts.

Gravity as a Quantum Entity

Authors: Leonardo Rubino
Comments: 4 Pages.

The gravitational pull exists as the Universe is collapsing. And why is it collapsing? For quantum-statistical reasons, that is, it must do that in order not to violate the Principle of Conservation of Energy (unjustifiable appearing of energy from nothing) or, by the same token, to respect the quantum Indetermination Principle of Heisenberg, which must be respected by all the particle-antiparticle pairs, which ideally fill the Universe itself, and them themselves have to disappear, sooner or later.

On the Logical Foundation of Physics (Part 1) Draft

Authors: Alexandre Harvey Tremblay
Comments: 38 Pages.

The aim of this work is, first, to set the basis for a formal model of science, then, it is to show that the laws of physics are its theorems. Necessarily, all theories that are the product of science are theorems of our model. Therefore, as we will argue, our model is the logical foundation of physics. Within the context of prior work our model is best understood as an axiomatic realization of the participatory universe envisioned by John Archibald Wheeler, in which the observer's practice of science brings about the reality he attempts to understand. As our model is constructive of a mathematical structure isomorphic to nature, it deprecates Karl Popper's definition of science based on falsifiability. In our model, nature is understood as the "basket" which holds the proofs that all observations are formally verifiable (and thus reproducible). For the universal case, the "basket" is a mathematical structure isomorphic to the physical universe. In this case, the theory is epistemologically complete, fundamental, predictive, free of physical baggage (in the sense of Max Tegmark), logically necessary, guaranteed to survive falsifiability, and provably cannot be improved by any scientific means.
