Essay Abstract

In this article, the scenario of dimensionality is claimed as the key foundation of nature to describe matter, space, energy and mass of the universe, in that, we explain that ‘dimensionality’ is not only to describes the dimensions of quantity but also the phenomena by which dimensions emerge, that is not described with our current assumptions. Non-expressiveness of, Quantum universe and Hierarchy of universe fails to describe a segmental universe for adapting the laws of thermodynamics and expresses the inability to unify gravitation with other fundamental interactions, in that, the current scenario of dimensionality on an inflationary universe predicts Gravitational collapse. Thus another scenario of dimensionality by ‘Coherently-cyclic cluster-matter universe model’ is adopted to investigate the foundations of nature in that the, ‘dimensionality’ appears by the eigen-rotations of cluster-matter strings is as three-dimensional tetrahedral-branes; and in this the fundamental matters are considered as string like structures rather than point like particles. Besides, ‘time’ is defined as discrete quantum time in reference with the flow of time that emerges from, eigen-rotations of cluster-matter strings in holarchy, in that Chiral symmetry descriptions is significant. Dark matter and Dark energy in relation with Neutrino, is considered to define a generic wave mechanics from Neutrino oscillation. Consistently, we recommend Parton as a string segment of quark and gluon that emerges new physics in accordance with the search of Higgs boson and evolve new assumptions on the foundations of nature. With these arguments, incompleteness of different cosmological models in reference with the causality of beginning, is explored and concluded that our Basic physical assumptions that are wrong in the foundations of nature is the ‘dimensionality’ and thus, adaptations on the existing scenario of dimensionality, is recommend.

Much of the terminology I am unfamiliar with, but can you elaborate on what you mean by "cosmic consciousness" within the following paragraph as related to anthropic principles?

"Fine-tuned universe that supports anthropic principle arising from the existence of many undefined dimensionless fundamental physical constants is supportive of variable cosmic potency in locality that describes cosmic consciousness and biophysical determinants that are causal for the biological evolution in locality, in that our assumptions needs adaptations on 'dimensionality' to support the emerging new physics Beyond Standard Model."

Dear Jeff Baugher,

Thank you for your interest on this article.

Consciousness of a system is the sense of awareness of its own.

In this context, we may assume that cosmic consciousness is similar to biological consciousness, as the system itself is the universe.

When we define the unit of consciousness, it is the function of information flux for the static information in unit volume.

In accordance with thermodynamics, energy flux is the information flux and entropy is the static information, in that entropy is relativistic in a segmental universe.

As entropy state function in a locality is related with chemical potential and the entropic gravity of that locality, the combination of chemical potential with gravitational potential is defined as the cosmic potential of that location.

Abundance of this cosmic potential in organic materials of the biological system is indicative of the specific biological evolution in locality, by a homeomorphic segmental-fluctuation of the universe.

As consciousness is expressional as a function of, ‘information’, the anthropic principle that describes the physical universe in compatible with ‘conscious life’ of the biological systems, may have some similarities with the description of biological consciousness within the scenario of, ‘cosmic consciousness’, by this paradigm of universe.

With best regards,

Dear Jayakar,

I've read some of your recent posts on others' essay entries and was impressed by the imagery that I received because it seemed similar to my own ideas. I would be grateful if you would read my idea on condensed string-like irregular matter produced at the centre of stars and then distributted to the planets via supernovae. I have linked the problems with Milankovitch Theory Ice Age problms with the gravity problem. It works beautifully imo.

Dear Alan Lowey,

Thank you for your interest on this essay and some of my posts at other’s essays.

As strings are in continuum, mass is not defined as the number of strings in a volume and it is a quantity of string lengths in that volume.

Orbital eccentricity and axial tilt of earth described in Milankovitch theory indicates the possibility of holarchial clustering of the universe in that the astrodynamics of each planet in the observable orbital are extended in the celestial sphere.

After reading you essay I am quite delighted you chose to post a comment on my essay. I am not nearly sufficiently conversant with string theory to offer a meaningful comment but I do have a couple of ideas about music and quantum mechanics.

It is sometimes said that when you study quantum mechanics you are studying music. Music theory can be difficult to study as in order to understand any of it you have to understand all of it. I wrote a series of papers titled Structural Resonance in which I defined the mathematics of music. I am surprised that many have difficulty understanding these papers as I feel they are quite simple.

The mathematics of harmonic structure and the mathematics of timbre are identical. Newton's thoughts about light suggest that the frequencies of light might also conform to these principles. I wonder if the frequencies of the vibrating strings of string theory do as well.

The vibrational structure that create music are non-linear and thus it is likely that all vibration is as well but the mathematics we use is linear. Because it deals with continuity and the resulting infinities I feel that the math we use hides the very structures of vibration and if string theory is correct vibration is the source of everything.

Einstein said this in 1954

I consider it quite possible that physics cannot be based

on the field concept, i.e., on continuous structures.

In that case, nothing remains of my entire castle in the air,

gravitation theory included, [and of] the rest of modern physics.

This could turn put to be the most significant thing he ever said.

Dear Thomas Wagner,

Thank you for your interest on this essay.

Classical string theory differs from the string mechanics described in this paradigm, in that the classical string theory is assigned to describe the oscillation of particles, whereas the oscillation of a defined length of matter as string has the probability of constructive interference with the strings of matters in isotropic oscillations and repetitive.

Dear Jayakar,

I replied in my own thread, not realizing that it should have been in yours. Here it comes:

your essay was somewhat difficult for me to read, but I agree with your main point that "our inadequate perceptions of 'dimensionality'" hinders the progress in our understanding of the universe. Multidimensional string theorists notwithstanding, most of us need to start somewhere in accepting the fact that space has more dimensions than the directly observable 3. For the benefit of an average layman I show how an addition of only one spatial dimension dispels paradoxes and reveals a coherent scheme of the world, in which we can fit our own experience.

I believe that once we figure out the question of what is space, we could move on to more difficult and at the same time more pertinent questions of what is information and consciousness. Ancient teachings defined the universe as "the play of mind in emptiness". Translated into modern terms, it means "interaction of information with spacetime".

The concept of holarchy was new to me and I thank you for introducing me to it!

Dear 3J

Very interesting to see your essay.

Perhaps all of us are convinced that: the choice of yourself is right!That of course is reasonable.

So may be we should work together to let's the consider clearly defined for the basis foundations theoretical as the most challenging with intellectual of all of us.

Why we do not try to start with a real challenge is very close and are the focus of interest of the human science: it is a matter of mass and grain Higg boson of the standard model.

Knowledge and belief reasoning of you will to express an opinion on this matter:

You have think that: the Mass is the expression of the impact force to material (definition from the ABSOLUTE theory of me) - so no impact force, we do not feel the Higg boson - similar to the case of no weight outside the Earth's atmosphere.

Does there need to be a particle with mass for everything have volume? If so, then why the mass of everything change when moving from the Earth to the Moon? Higg boson is lighter by the Moon's gravity is weaker than of Earth?

The LHC particle accelerator used to "Smashed" until "Ejected" Higg boson, but why only when the "Smashed" can see it,and when off then not see it ?

Can be "locked" Higg particles? so when "released" if we do not force to it by any the Force, how to know that it is "out" or not?

You are should be boldly to give a definition of weight that you think is right for us to enjoy, or oppose my opinion.

Because in the process of research, the value of "failure" or "success" is the similar with science. The purpose of a correct theory be must is without any a wrong point ?

Glad to see from you comments soon,because still have too many of the same problems.

Kind Regards !

Dear Hoang Cao Hai,

Thanking you for your interest on this essay and seeking cooperation to work together.

As per this paradigm the mass of an object is the total length of all strings in that object, whereas its density is the quantity of strings per volume, that is the mass per volume.

As the universe is expressional in continuum, the weight of an object is the net gravitational pull by the strings that connects that object with another object that has greatest mass than that object and other relativistic objects.

As Standard Model does not include gravity, finding of many exotic Higgs bosons is conclusive of proceeding with BSM; whereas our interest on particle physics experimentations is to work on Parton model for having adaptations on that model to confirm the string nature of fundamental matters as per this noninflationary scenario of universe without any origin of mass.

In respect to your essay, I shall go through it and make my statement soon.

Dear Jayakar,

At the link I found the geometrical picture of Universe hierarchy in the form of a cluster-matter of embedded holarchial clusters of randomly distributed heterogeneous-matters in triplets. And the minimal clustering algorithm applied on this model has been derived from a previous work on Quantum clustering and computing of information. I suppose you must now to connect your model to the real Universe hierarchy and compare them in details.

Dear Sergey,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Compound tetrahedral-brane is the geometric representation for the coherent dynamics of the strings of a Cluster-matter holon, in that the tetrahedral-branes are the topological transformation of eigen-rotational phases of string-matter segments.

I think the three components of SP-Phi symmetry that represents transformation of speeds, transformation of scales and the transformation of masses; may be in analogue with the angular velocity of an eigen-rotational string, path-length variability of its peripheral-end and its string-length variability, as they have correlations in finite time. Thus I imagine that the homeomorphism expressional with a compound tetrahedral-brane of cluster-matter holon is descriptive with SP-Phi symmetry, with some adaptations.

With best regards,

If you do not understand why your rating dropped down. As I found ratings in the contest are calculated in the next way. Suppose your rating is
was the quantity of people which gave you ratings. Then you have
of points. After it anyone give you
of points so you have
of points and
is the common quantity of the people which gave you ratings. At the same time you will have
of points. From here, if you want to be R2 > R1 there must be:
In other words if you want to increase rating of anyone you must give him more points
then the participant`s rating
was at the moment you rated him. From here it is seen that in the contest are special rules for ratings. And from here there are misunderstanding of some participants what is happened with their ratings. Moreover since community ratings are hided some participants do not sure how increase ratings of others and gives them maximum 10 points. But in the case the scale from 1 to 10 of points do not work, and some essays are overestimated and some essays are drop down. In my opinion it is a bad problem with this Contest rating process. I hope the FQXI community will change the rating process.
