Essay Abstract

The content of this essay is lifted from my latest book entitled "Model Mechanics: The Final Theory". Model Mechanics posits that all the particles, all processes and all the forces of nature are the results of absolute motions of fundamental mass bearing particles called the "S-Particle" in a stationary, structured and elastic medium called the E-Matrix. Model Mechanics leads to the discovery of a new fifth force called the CRE force. The CRE force is repulsive between objects moving in the same direction in the E-Matrix. The CRE force in combination with the electromagnetic force lead to a new theory of gravity. Most importantly they lead to all the processes of life including the ability of living cells to divide.

Dear Dr. Seto,

Please excuse me for I do not wish to be too critical of your fine essay.

Only nature could produce a reality so simple, a single cell amoeba could deal with it.

One real visible Universe must have only one reality. Simple natural reality has nothing to do with any abstract complex musings about imaginary invisible quantum particles.

The real Universe must consist only of one unified visible infinite physical surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

A more detailed explanation of natural reality can be found in my essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY. I do hope that you will read my essay and comment on its merit.

Dear Reader,

As far as I know my essay is the first ever to connect physics and physical interactions to life processes. The discovery of the fifth repulsive "CRE" force is the reason I make this claim. Therefore my essay deserves a fair evaluation. Thank you.

Your concept “Cosmological Repulsive Effect (CRE) Force” is good for explaining attractive and repulsive forces at electron proton levels. But at distant Galaxy level it is not required.

Dear Mr. Seto,

I enjoyed this essay, as I have other essays of yours. I find your work stunningly original. I can't myself determine whether your theories are correct. But I am so pleased that there are scientists approaching old problems from new angles. A unified theory is a worthy goal--and few minds are able to propose one. Thanks for your inspiring work.

I thought your paper was really cool. I have a hard time understanding some of the math but I believe I got most of the big ideas. I have a few questions for you to answer if you like...

Do you think gravity is sound vibrations?

Are the e strings laid out in a mesh pattern (like a window screen)?

Is the evolution that God (and I believe it is he and she - light and darkness) designed for consciousness (I AM / one thought = Infinite thoughts) evolving back to Oneness... that split apart in the beginning to create the physical universe? Could it simply be the division of conscious light that created everything we perceive from our senses?

Good luck with your essay,

William Walker

Dear Mr. Walker,

Thank you for your post.

No, I don't believe that gravity is sound vibrations. It is a combination of two opposing forces--an attractive EM force caused by the gravitating objects moving in the same direction in the E-Matrix and a repulsive force caused by the gravitating objects are confined to the divergent structure of the E-Matrix.

There is only one equation in the essay--what part of it that your don't understand?

The E-Strings are arranged like window screen in two dimensions.

The consciousness processes involve the recognition of geometric patterns stored in the E-Matrix and the neurons in the brain through previously learning processes.

I hope that I answered your questions adequately.

Sincerely,

Ken Seto




William Walker wrote on Feb. 15, 2017 @ 17:52 GMT
Hey Ken,

Thanks for the response...

yes that one equation... I am just horrible at math formulas so you probably won't be able to explain it so that I could understand it. Plus I have no formal training beyond H.S. math / physics, so I am trying to learn :)

That's what I thought too with the stings laid out with a vertical axis and a horizontal axis. X & Y

I guess my theory is that all forces whether they attract or repel are frequencies - which I'm assuming is the f in your equation. And if everything is a frequency - then wouldn't everything be some form of sound vibration? Even gravity?

So God (consciousness) in my estimation is all sound frequencies... and God went from one frequency (I AM)...in the beginning... to all frequencies (Infinity)... which was TMI... but then balanced them out by separating these frequencies into visible light and hiding a lot of the frequencies in dark matter creating the spatial universe we see today dominated by darkness.

And I promise not to bug you after this... I'm sure we could continue to infinity and beyond ;)

Best of luck in the contest!

Ken,

I read through the comments before reading your paper, encouraged by the feedback of its originality. It's very true, you've put considerable work into a fresh idea.

I'm at the tip of the iceberg reading through some of the entries in this community (new to it), but it is refreshing to see unique approaches to problems. And the problem that you are trying to tackle - finding cracks in the Standard Model of particles and forces - is the same one that I've been tackling as well. It's fun to see new ideas.

I admit that our approaches are quite different, but there were two similarities that I found in your paper. I do agree that there is a medium (your E-matrix) for light to travel across the universe. It still amazes me that the aether was disregarded long ago. And I also agree with you that there is a fundamental particle (what you called the S-particle) if we continue to dig deeper.

On that last note of finding a fundamental particle, you might have interest in some work that I've been doing with my colleagues:

Dear Jeff,

Thank you for reading my paper.

I read your paper. It is good that we have a common goal of finding the one fundamental physical description of our universe that can account for all the particles, all the forces and all the processes of nature.

My physical model of the E-Matrix, the S-Particles and the absolute motions of the S-particles in the E-Matrix give rise to all the elementary particles, all the forces and all the processes of nature is one such possible candidate. if you are interested please send me your email address so I can send you a copy of my ebook.

Hi Ken,

Nice to read about your interesting theory again, written in such a clear and well organized way and modified to address the topic. The 'geometrical pattern imprint' solution to memory and consciousness is in agreement with my own.

Indeed I think and hope you'll enjoy reading mine as it shows that the mechanistic solutions we both promote can remove all the weirdness and confusion in quantum mechanics. I also address why it's so difficult for new theoretical approaches to get more that glimpsed by mainstream. I think mankind must learn to employ more rational organised thinking as opposed to the primevally evolved 'instant' pattern matching we agree on.

Very well done.

Peter

Hi Peter,

Nice to hear from you again.

An excerpt from my book:

"In the past 100 years theoretical physics and cosmology development have been conducted almost exclusively on a mathematical basis, leading to abstract mathematical objects or processes such as fields, space-time, curvature in space-time, time dilation, length contraction, virtual particles, action at a distance, curled-up dimensions, Entanglement, Dark Energy, Dark Matter....etc. It is posited that these abstract mathematical objects may not have existence in our physical universe. This led me to formulate a physical model of our universe that can be used to replace these abstract mathematical objects."

If you are interested I can send you a copy of my ebook.

Ken

Author Ken Hon Seto replied on Mar. 8, 2017 @ 17:00 GMT
Hi Eckard,

The structure of the E-Matrix is homogeneous and isotropic....therefore it transmits light isotropically in all directions. This means that there is no specific direction of motion of an object in the E-Matrix is detectable. That's why the MMX null result.

Best,

Ken Seto



Eckard Blumschein replied on Mar. 8, 2017 @ 17:44 GMT
Hi Ken,

With Cusanus we both agree on isotropy of space. Michelson's 1881 and his so called MMX 1887 result require to deny the existence of a priori preferred coordinates of space if there is no preferred point of reference to refer to. There is no alternative, in order to define your matrix, you must arbitrarily choose a localization, e.g. a material object at x=0. Once you have chosen x, the distance x_1 from x=0 can be positive or negative. Michelson demonstrated the opposite.

Eckard Blumschein

Hi Eckard,

The object is moving in the E-Matrix....therefore the x-axis is not coincide with the same E-Strings that transmit the original light pulse. The light pulse that arrive at x=1 will need to travel an extra distance of gamma to arrive at x=1. This applies to light pulses traveling in all directions.

Best,

Ken Seto

Dear Кен Хон Сето!

I invite you to familiarize yourself with New Cartesian Physic

I appreciate your essay. You spent a lot of effort to write it.

If you believed in the principle of identity of space and matter of Descartes, then your essay would be even better.

I wish to see your criticism on the New Cartesian Physic, the founder of which I call myself.

The concept of moving space-matter helped me:

- The uncertainty principle Heisenberg to make the principle of definiteness of points of space-matter;

- Open the law of the constancy of the flow of forces through a closed surface is the sphere of space-matter;

- Open the law of universal attraction of Lorentz;

- Give the formula for the pressure of the Universe;

- To give a definition of gravitational mass as the flow vector of the centrifugal acceleration across the surface of the corpuscles, etc.

New Cartesian Physic has great potential in understanding the world. To show this potential in his essay I gave The way of The materialist explanation of the paranormal and the supernatural . Visit my essay and you will find something in it about New Cartesian Physic. Note my statement that our brain creates an image of the outside world no inside, and in external space. Hope you rate my essay as high as I am yours. I am waiting your post.



Sincerely,

Dizhechko Boris

Dear Ken,

With great interest I read your essay, which of course is worthy of the highest praise.

I'm glad that you have

«The E-Matrix is a stationary and structured light-conducting medium. It occupies all of pure space (pure void). It is comprised of very thin and elastic E-Strings».

Your assumptions are very close to me

«Model Mechanics replaces the math constructs of space-time of Relativity Theories and the fields/virtual particles of Quantum Field Theories».

«All the processes of nature are the results of different absolute motions of the S-Particles or S-Particle systems in the E-Matrix».


You might also like reading my essay , where the fractal principle of the device of matter is substantiate.

I wish you success in the contest.

Kind regards,

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for your comments.

I am glad that we agree that space without a medium is "unthinkable". Physicists invented different terms such as "spacetime" and "fields/virtual particles" to replace the "medium" and the effects of particles moving in the "medium" caused different geometries in the "medium" lead to the current dead ends in the developments of theoretical physics and cosmology.

I read your essay and I enjoyed it very much. I gave it a very high rating.
