Essay Abstract

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 significances. De facto, it is banned to do in present physics, by historical or other circumstances unclear to us.

Dear George Kirakosyan,,

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 “doubtless picture of reality.”

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.

Really Good essay George Kirakosyan,

You have very nicely analyzed the present day situation. You are exactly correct CORRECT about the SR and GR. NO new observation or NO experimental results are considered. Take the case of Superluminal neutrinos in case of SR, and many experimental verification failures of GR. If there is any theory like Dynamic Universe Model explains ALL such results, MAIN STREAM Scientists don’t bother about it, NO SUPPORT of any sort from any person is visible forget financial support. Very sorrow state of affairs.

Your observation is exactly correct about the HIGG’s boson. …. Your own words …” I only think to myself; how and for what purpose this new particle, which is busted practically at the same moment as it is born, will be useful, when there are more than ten thousands of different unstable particles as well as some bosons among them? “….

Dear George Kirakosyan,

Your essay provoked me to read a couple of your papers in the references section, the one on modeling the electron and the one on substance as spin-vortex. I am not competent to judge their ultimate merit, but I very much appreciated the method of approach. The notion of substance as a arising from a spin-vortex in a field simply mirrors dynamics that are apparent in the universe at vastly different scales i.e. solitons, hydrodynamic quantum analogues and turbulence modeling. To my mind it suggests a deeply rooted, underlying cosmological principle. I hope you have a chance to read my yet to emerge essay which touches on that notion.

To judge from your essay, your views are counter current with the mainstream and that is causing considerable frustration. I certainly wish for you a quiet eddy free from vexation in which your ideas can grow in substance and recognition.

Best, Don Foster

Thanks for these interesting ideas. I think one important reason to magic in mathematics is the frame of reference. We see development in aa backwards perspective. We see how Maxwell transformed Faradays work to mathematics but we do not see how Faraday worked hard his whole life and invented electric motors and generators and transformers. We see Kepler shifting from circle to ellipse but not Tycho Brahe to invent instruments and building observatory under ground level and work his whole life on the same issue.

Dear George Kirakosyan, I agree with your essay.

Today, the official science is not able to adapt to the rapidly changing of the international situation in science and technology.

The modern theoretical physics as a whole is characterized by exaggerated mathematization, a deliberate refusal to find the cause and the essential explanations, as a conscious rejection of spatial models and, as a consequence, the lack of "understanding" in the conventional (ie non-philosophical) sense.

People cannot and do not want to believe in the doctrine that no one understands, even his followers.

Previously I can say that I have nothing against to neutrino, the electron is preferable because it is always under our hands (I mean it is much easy to detect and to study). Moreover, the neutrino does not have charge and mag. momentum that makes so much difficult to catch and to identify it.

I have read with great interest your essay.

In your conclusion you mention that physical laws are the traffic signs of our perceived reality. It may seem so, but my perception is that any LAW is just valid untill NOW, in the future quite other forms of what seems the basic of reality may be valid, nad then only for the new coming NOW mement.

The Laws that we are experiencing in our collective memories are also emergent phenomenae, so they can change any NOW moment.

Sorry for my equation,I made an error.It was necessary to differenciate the two kinds of matter,one baryonic, the other not baryonic.

This one is better,E=m(b)c²+m(nb)l² m(b) is the baryonic mass and m(nb)is the not baryonic mass.The cold dark matter is produced in my model of spherisation with quant and cosm 3D sphères Inside the universal 3D sphere by supermassive BHs.l is their linear velocity proportional with the spherical volume.That is why the aether is gravitational from the central cosm singularity, the biggest BH producing the speedest particles of gravitation.This standard model seems encircled by this cold gravitation.I have found in my humble reasoning that this weakest quant force was in the same time the strongest when we consider quantum BHs with a serie towards the quantum singularities,the cnetral BH of all serie of uniquenss .The particles of gravitation them are encoded weaker than electromagneic forces and photons.This thermo and standard model with photons is encircled by this gravity.That is why I consider that photons are spherons coded in fact.The main chief orchestra giving the road to photons is this gravitation.Like if God ,this infinite entropy balanced the thermo and cold like the + and the -.It is fascinating all this universal mechanic of imrpovement.

Dear George,

In your emergent reality (the one you are experiencing right now) and in our collective NOW memory, energy preservation and pi are stable,. Changing of life-line may reveal that they may be changing, when you change life lines you are not aware of the specific changes.

I thank you for your rating, but it is best not to talk about in the threads I think.

Many thanks for an enjoyable and insightful essay.

You are very correct regarding the use of units in calculations. I am an engineer by education. One of the first things we are taught is to carry dimensional units through calculations. That keeps us from making major mistakes and it forces us to think about what we are doing when things appear to be dissimilar.

I certainly see similarities with the bee on the window ... it simply cannot understand why it cannot pass through.

I share your puzzlement regarding the Higgs Boson ... I am fairly sure there are few if any giant particle accelerators in the universe to create such things. In my simple thinking, the only particles worthy of great study are the proton, electron, and neutron since they are STABLE. Of course, the reason that folks want to create such particles is to study the associated fields. However, rather than studying the Higgs, it seems to me a better use of resources to figure out why a solitary neutron decays with a half-life of 14 minutes.

Your notions for an electron and proton are interesting. In fact, they are somewhat similar to my own.

Best Regards and Good Luck,

Gary Simpson

Dear Gary,

You have used the the complex vector representation and the Euler's beautiful formula in your attempts to describe proton, in this case. You have the definite success on this. It shows just that you are on the somewhat right way. I am very agree with you that the dynamics and harmony should be the base to understand the microcosm. By the way, the solutions of Maxwell's equations (in macrocosm) and Schrodinger's equations (in microcosm) with its different modifications correspond with this. The main questions however, has become there - how need to interpret these solutions, since a what of physical values must to put there as the this or that members of equations? That is why I am calling to put the ideas first before of math! You know of course the merits of Faradei as well as Nikola Tesla ..... who was very weak in math! So, the math does not disturb them to RIGHT THINKING and to find the right answers by the same! Then their job was continued by whom who was more well with math ....!

So, I welcome your work and I will happy to help you.

My (recently adopted) family motto is; "I have the strength of ten men as I am pure in heart!" It's so nice to converse with a kindred spirit.

Now the essay. Well even had you not written one the literary genius, clarity, truth and insight of the abstract alone might be worth a 9!

I'm no nuclear physicist but am excited by your finding; "We discovered new type of light excited nuclei with excited alpha particle inside. This nuclei are unstable, with emission of p and t Will this be published? or is it too new to pass the gatekeepers (armed guards!) of theory.

How familiar are you with plasma?/Ions?/condensation of Fermion pairs? Do you agree the pairs may be identical just with opposite orientations? as with 'split' pairs in QM?

I do hope you may take a rigorous look at the simple momenta pair identified in my essay and confirm my derivation of the orthogonal cos2 curves of QM. established physicist run screaming rather than look and bury their heads in the sand or even a dung pile!

I'd also like to talk and think more about the 8-9Mev continuum energy recognised in nuclear physics. I think I referred to something similar in terms of the 'condensate', conceptually equivalent to Paul Dirac's 'new ether'. How 'recognised' is it and what is the interpretation. Any good links?

The first two paragraphs above apply, but I now realise you didn't suddenly become a nuclear physicist!

Yes, I've opened many windows for bees and flies, only to be ignored or told with arrogance and indignation to leave them alone and not try to tell them where the route to joining with the universe lies! A great example of where science stands (mainly still!)

Also great comments about the importance of the observer. You'll have seen I extend that to detectors, finding the final key to a Classical reproduction of QMs Cos2 curves in the cascade or 'avalanche' multiplication of the photodetectors themselves. Always self doubting I checked everywhere and found this effect already a key part of QCD!

So I agree, cause and effect does work fine, the problem has been only our inadequate mental evolution. Can we really self-evolve fast enough?

Applying my score made yours leapfrog mine but I had no compunction doing so.

Dear George ! Official science has become a decisive knowledge tool of the economic production process. This alienation process of science and its tools (e.g.maths) can lead to mindless constructions of artificial realities, reinforcing the total alienated value of its professional participants, i.e. there exists an existential difference between knowledge value for economic production/consumption and coping with real life. Maybe, a new Copernican shift will take place when exponential knowledge automation will free the scientific workers and scientific labor from mindless activities for increasing economic productivity.Take this a my reader response to your brilliant essay..

Dear George Kirakosyan

Excellent essay, near to me in pursuit.

«There is an actual opportunity to come to a high-grade realistic science by returning to natural thinking and objective scientific approaches».

I think the most important for the theme of the contest is to solve the problems of causality in quantum mechanics -

«I will refer only to the opinion of a respectful for me professor Lee Smolin, Ref. [4], who sees solution of arisen problems with QR in the opportunity to interpret quantum relations and phenomena based on cause-effect laws».

However, let me disagree with your statement:

«All kinds of particles are formed from the same primordial substance. The huge numbers of different unstable particles cannot represent any interest and perceptivity for study, because of their transient state and common physical essence».

I believe that in the universe, each particle of interest and the prospects for research. Each particle has a role in the causation of quantum processes. Not stable particles with their transition states are nonlinear elements from nonideal medium of physical vacuum, where there are quantum processes due to non-linearity.

In My essay it is shown that the using of mathematical abstractions and ideal properties of matter and fields in the description of physical reality leads to a lack of reasons for the ongoing processes, lead to the abstract particles, to pointless research of collapses, of infinities , of normalization, of calibrations, of clouds of probability and so on. The phenomenological laws and their abstract coefficients spread on everything systems unreasonably and are elevated to the rank of absolutes.

This led me to the conclusion that the reason of self-organization systems of matter is quantum-parametric resonance and the formation of solitons.

Kind regards,

Vladimir Fedorov

Thank you, Dear Vladimir Nikolayevich, for your kindly attention on my work and for favorable words.

I have read your nice article also and fully agreed with you in many points. I especially like your vortex - toroidal structures that can form elementary particles. So, we can welcome each to other as realistically thinking engineers.

Of course, we can have some disagreements also what we have actually. The matter is you are a mechanical engineer and I am a poor electrical engineer only. That is why we must always to fight on the question - which principles should be in the base of formation the primordial substance of matter - is this should be mechanical or the electrical?

I see you are silently - intuitively inclined on the mechanical side that is why you cannot be free from the environment (I mean the physical vacuum with its special, different properties).

Here I have nothing to tell you, but only I will ask to you to listening advice of old man - try to build everything from the beginning without using any of hypothetical (unproven) things. (Let me tell only that it is really is possible!)

To help you somewhat, I will tell you that the physical vacuum is the same undetectable ether that was silently renamed, to be solve the huge problems in the microcosm for this time. You and I have big respects to Einstein. His first greatest merit was that he realized whole unnecessary of physical environment (that we can call the ether, physical vacuum or other) and he try remove it out from physics. Moreover, there is the proven kind of physical reality that can exist and work itself – without any environment, which are the electromagnetic field. The second greatest merit of Einstein (in my view) is that he says; everything can be build from this single kind of reality only that is the electromagnetic field! So, try please to work without physical vacuum!

With all this, I see your work as a good significant.

I wish you successes!

2. "The huge numbers of different unstable particles cannot represent any nterest and perceptivity for study, because of their transient state and common physical essence."

Particles represent fragmented and not wholesome reality of Oneness of consciousness in the Zero-point state of physical existence.

Thank you very much for reading my paper and providing your kind comments. The mainstream science needs to cultivate a consciousness-integrated rather than Inanimate approach to science to represent a wholesome reality, purpose, and meaning to the universe and life in it.

Again, I am really grateful for your understanding and support of the wholesome approach.

Best Regards

Hi dear Christian

It is nice to see you (and co-authors) in the contest. I have read your interesting article and have got there some valuable for me information. Particularly, I have impressed with that dramatic situation of Einstein that was linked with creation of GW. I had felt that it could not be accepted by Einstein so easy because there are one deep (and obvious) logical contradiction between GW and one of basic principle GR. It was very important to me to know that Einstein has some doubt in soul on the existence GW in generally! For this, mainly I am very thankful from your article.

I never hide that I did not trust in the existence of GW and I have continue say this even there was announce on the detection of GW by LIGO group. This let be remain up on their conscience.

I will call your attention only on the next argument; GR was based on the close - action principle, and GW, however, assume the existence of a far - action, let it be explained as a current of gravitons or, as the action trough the field etc. So, GW should be not there, otherwise this valuable – important principle of GR become broken in fact! I think Einstein was so doubtful on GW on this namely. There goes on the more powerful LISA project. I hope it can be realized and there will be finally established …. the absence of GW!

Thus, I can welcome only your article as high valuable for me and evaluate it accordingly.

With best regards

I have discovered your unusual work and I have understood (after some time) that you try to use the pepper, - against to stupidity. I am doubtful this can be effective despite me also try to add some pepper (with the small salt) in mine essay. I do not know it can be useful because Russians say - "if guy is stupid, it is for long time!" But we must do our job as we see it may better!

I welcome you and I wish to support you!

Hi George,

Really good to be in the mix again. Your essay pointed out how leading edge physics is getting kind of strange. And this strangeness has permeated the Peer Review system.

I will defend the peer review system just a bit.

If I were asked to be a judge of this contest I would: 1. Scream loudly 2. Run away as fast as possible. 3. All the while appreciating those who do volunteer.

This does not take away from your essay which I rate very high.

Dear George Kirakosyan!

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.

Dear Boris!

I am very grateful to your attention to my work and your willingness to support me. I downloaded your work and began to study it. And it seems to me that we are striving for a largely common goal.

 1. You note, for example, that you explained the essence of the Lorentz transformation in the Cartesian coordinate system - this is extremely interesting to me, because I also tried to do the same, though, somewhat differently (see in Ref. [3]).

 2. You also talk about the principle of uncertainty of Heisenberg, which is also an intriguing topic for me.

 3. The problem of gravity, and the task of accurately assessing Einstein's legacy, are also very close to me questions.

 4. On your results on the interpretation of paranormal phenomena, however, I can not say anything definite, because I have not dealt with these problems yet. But, I'm sure that I can find there valuable approaches for me, in the near future. If questions arise, I think you will help!

 So, for this preliminary inspection, I can only welcome your work and definitely support you!

With good wishes,

Dear George

I have just read with interest your essay critical of the state of physics today. You make a plea for leaders in the field (Prima Donnas) to re-examine their fundamental beliefs. You are also a little apologetic about making such demands. I used to be that way too but if one believes something needs to be changed it is good to declare it clearly. Your essay refers to how the role of the observer became central. I have been very critical of Einstein for confusing physics by introducing such an observer in Special Relativity in my current my fqxi essay which you kindly read. I was curious that you said there are tens of thousands of opposition physicists. Where did you arrive at that figure? I had a quick look at your theory of the electron but I am not qualified to judge it.

Physics is fun. I wish you all the best in your study and work.

Shokran Vladimir,

Now I understand that you really has an artist's soul.

I also understand that for you it is more important human attitude than other things! So, we can talk long and to say many nice things each to other, but let me just stop on two your remarks. 1. On scientists - protestants. Yes, there are unbelievable number of oppositions in present physics, who are under global pressing of "official science." And no need go so far to find them, my friend - we can find someone right here! I mean Eugeny Klingman, for example, who goes now on the top. God help to him (but I have doubt!) we will see! You can find many of them, using google even.

2. About role of Einstein: There are 3 Einstein for me; early, medium and last. First one is what you say. The second one was who already get huge success (by some specific way for known to you kind of people.) But for us it must be more important a third Einstein, when he have understand that he has done many wrong things then he tried to catch shaitan and put again in the bottle ... but it was already out of his power! THEY had say him - thank you "habibi" what you have done, but now you must go away ... and he become one very tragic person, to end of his life!

Be well, my friend.

James Lee Hoover wrote on Mar. 17, 2017 @ 18:41 GMT

Well done. You deliberately and logically present the essentials for the right aims and intents of the conscious mind of the observer. Good process analysis. Like the independent thinkers of old, we must ignore politicization and bias of the times and utilize natural law.

Depending on the frame of observation, my highly speculative hypothesis about dark matter, needs the ideal observer who depends on galactic field studies to see if dark matter is not an independent field like most DM scientists are prone to believe but possible one generated by the galactic motions and forces of gravity, EM, and the strong and weak force all in tandem.

It is only a thought experiment, maybe in the vein of Einstein, but one that is out of the box -- somewhat in your thought train. You provide important steps for agency and intent.

Hope you can check out my essay and provide your thoughts.

Dear James,

Thank you for attention on my work. I appreciate your support!

Coming to your essay I will just emphasize some points that you says: "Such laws are not mindless ..." Then you says "they not dictate the aim ...". This almost is enough to me to understand your vision on the contest question. Then you goes a little on side and you linked the aim with the entropy. This I can welcome only (I think not me only!) because the connection of the entropy with system organisation it should be obvious to everybody. And, the purposefulness cannot be without organisation. So, this also is nice!

But let me just tell you friendly that I am a little bit sceptical to dark matter. If you will ask my advice here then I will say - It will better to wait until we understand the physical essence of gravity phenomena, the elementary particles etc. I mean, it maybe that time we just will see that the ''dark matter" becomes not so necessary!

And, in the common sense your essay are one of nice works in the contest. So, I can wish you success only!

The speed of light in vacuum is constant relative to ‘Space’ itself, instead of relative to a material object. Therefore, the speed of electromagnetic wave is not only a speed but also a fundamental property of nature, which can be a key property to generate gravitational and inertial forces.

Dear Bayarsaikhan

Yes, I agree that //The speed of light in vacuum is constant// However, on //relative to ‘Space’ itself, instead of relative to a material object// it is not so unequivocally as this seems. Particularly, from this imagination has been arisen the existence of ether or (absolute system of measurement) that breaks Galilean relativity principle. This theme is large to start discuss it right here.

Check please in my article (in Refs) What I need to say It is there. I cannot say you will accept with me, but I do not have other answer. I already have evaluated (and criticized also) your work earlier (see my previous comment)

Dear George,

you asked me to comment here. Obviously you have interpreted the theme of the contest in a very different way than me. (The topic was broad!) Thus, I'm not sure if can add very much to your analysis. But let my try to point you to a few places, risking that it's not all that new to you. First, given your general remarks about politics and sociology within the scientific community, you might enjoy the classic books "Against Method" and "Science in a Free Society" by Paul Feyerabend. Second, I believe that if the moon is there when I look at it, then it is also there when I don't look. There are realistic theories which can be used instead of (standard) quantum mechanics, the best-known being De Broglie-Bohm theory (same predictions as quantum mechanics). Finally, I have lots of sympathy for viewing mathematics as a tool created to do physics although there are areas of mathematics for which some people might argue otherwise.

Cheers, Stefan

Hi Gevorg,

The scope of this contest is vast for several reasons. For one, interpretation of the challenge is dependent on each person’s own understanding of several terms in the question; this alone has the effect of presenting hundreds of questions. And the added challenge to avoid our pet notions and (WHAT?) go with politically recognized but conflicting concepts while addressing a very basic question.

I enjoyed your presentation and commiserate with your angst pertaining to the opportunity the scientific community has lost in the last hundred years. But, even with this loss, it seems that science, math, and technology have evolved much faster than common sense concerns like morals, ethics, politics, and religion.

I must admit that I must do some more research to understand some of problems in the way modern science is done, that you have pointed out. I will say that I agree that the role of the observer is of utmost importance and we need to have extremely clear definitions of such an observer's capacities and capabilities. I thank you for your discussions on that. Your work has been a good read. Good luck on the contest.

Dear George,

Your essay has been for me a very informative and useful reading, because it raises many questions about the current state of scientific research and offers insight on the uneasy relations between the "official" science and the independent research. I am not a physicist or a mathematician and I certainly cannot evaluate to what extent the situation of the current paradigms of these two sciences is lacking. However, I share with you the view that the nature of fundamental particles has not yet been clarified (and the frequent discovery of new more and more evanescent particles does not improve the situation) and that the relationship between mathematics and reality should be reconsidered. But I must admit that the way in which you criticize the mainstream of current research seems to me somewhat too polemical (but maybe it's a matter of taste). I don't think that the boundaries between truth and error in human knowledge (apart from logic and pure mathematics) are so clear and I don't even know if there is a specific plan by the prevailing scientific community to support at any cost some particular theoretical framework. As for the quantum representation of reality (QR), that you think has favored a distorted view of things, it seems clear that quantum mechanics actually works, but no one knows yet why it works. It is likely that the interpretations proposed so far, including that of Copenhagen, are not correct or are incomplete, but we have still to find the right way to replace them. It is not an easy task and I think, but perhaps I'm deceiving myself, that philosophy has something to say about it.

My very kind regards for you,

1. You says //the nature of fundamental particles (and QR) has not yet been clarified// - but you already know one crazy guy who says "I know this" and he points on the large works and on the concretely results (see Refs)

2. Then you says //I am not a mathematician and nor the physicist ...etc.//

My dear, the philosophy was a father of all sciences, then the philosophers must have more priority to instruct and evaluate of mathematicians and physicists (as their non-thankful sons!) than the opposite!

However, I think everything is in the usual rule of things!

Hello George,

I really enjoyed your essay. I loved quote about Bruno- "Do you think the fuel will be enough?', but more seriously found myself nodding in agreement to observations such as this:

"I think it may be enough to remember that mathematics has been our valuable language - tool, created and developed by us to make our job easier. As we see now, it has become some omnipotent - cabalistic knowledge, with hurried hands of advanced theorists, who have long believed that it may guide them to incredible new successes!"

I am not sure if he’s right, but see you like a prophet crying in the wilderness who should be paid attention to.

It struck me that perhaps the change physics seems to need to escape its current dead end will come from a prophet/outsider from beyond the geographical or institutional centers of physics.

I wish you Godspeed in that,

I am responding to the note that you left on my essay. But then you chose not to mention anything about the essay.

I perused your essay first time on 22nd March. While reading, I got the impression that your central theme is to bring to the fore the problems in modern scientific thinking and what plagues science today in general. I agreed with several of those observations. So I also wrote a note of response about that. But as I read further, I noticed that you have a scientific proposal of your own for the contest.

I do agree with the conclusion though: Thus, it will be a simple lexical mistake to say - "math defines or manages things", since natural laws do this. Thus, mathematics is our tool that cannot work by itself, rule something, or give us useful results.

But, I could not follow the entire logic leading to that. So, I decided not to rate the essay.

If we kill all mathematicians and burn all handbooks then what will remain after? I can tell you that there will remains the quantity conservation laws only that we can find again experimentally (1=1 =/ 0). However, somebody can build the same math apparatus again by using this mentioned single principle only. The evidence of this can serve binary calculus system where every kind of possible calculus transformed to sum of nulls and units. This shows the smallest (technical only) role of math apparatus in the scientific research and its unnecessary elevation to mystically significance. For you It will very difficult be agree with this, - but you try do it for yourself!
