Essay Abstract

Every new fundamental step in science evolution was directly or indirectly connected with discoveries in astronomy. Isaak Newton created differential and integral calculus solving equations for planets. New chemical element Helium was discovered from the solar spectra. High energy physics is directly originated from exploring of cosmic rays. Following the tradition we turned our eyes to the stars. As it turned out, precise inner structure of stars as well as their energetics have still not been established. It is a well-known fact that the temperatures of the star surface are only 2.000 – 80.000 K. At such temperatures hydrogen has an atomic form and there is paltry amount of hydrogen in plasma state. The star corona consists of a plasma at temperature of million degrees but their density is too low to play a significant role in the star energetics. At the same time the modern paradigm is based on the hypothesis of a superhigh density of the hydrogen plasma in the star centre, as the result of which thermonuclear fusion takes place. This contradicts lots of experimental data. The space is being discovered more the new mysteries and paradoxes are being brought by it. The closest of them to the humanity are mysteries of the energy origin and dynamics of the Sun and Solar system. To see future without illusions we have to create an adequate picture of the world, in which there would be no place for the old barriers. It is only then we will be able to find principally new sources of pure energy and discover new superluminal channels for space communication.

Dear Professor Ilyanok,

Please excuse me for I do not wish to be too critical of your fine essay and I do hope that it fairs well in the competition.

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

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 professor!

Thank you very much for your opinion and kindly words on my work.

These are especially significant for me as one experienced scientist and serious person who are able to deeply understanding what is going on in the present fundamental science.

I seen some incognito “gentleman” initially have evaluated your work by one fatty 1! It is simply outrageously meanness in my view, which cannot have anything common with the objective criticism and to science at all! So, we must seriously thinking ourselves – who and on what purpose does such things?

I would say that your article seems to me as an impressive - serious research work that must to deserve the attention of specialists in this area. I will study your works in good time, and then we can exchanging with our viewpoints.

With all best wishes

Dear Ilyanok,

Good essay on expense of anisotropy of gravitational force as power source inside stars…

Your words…….’It is high time to break this circulus vituosus and to get rid of the fruitless hypothesis of thermonuclear synthesis as the main source of star energy. We think that source of star energy connected with superdense state of hydrogen radicals in the star shell. Energy generation takes place exactly in the shell at the expense of anisotropy of gravitational force and partially thermonuclear synthesis occurs in the shell at low temperatures of star surface. Such synthesis is pure, i.e. not connected with neutron creation’…….

.........I don’t know if there any experimental verification for this concept “expense of anisotropy of gravitational force”…? Hope you will give that reference please ……

Can you please tell me how these star temperatures are 2 K to 80K , see your words…’ It is a well-known fact that the temperatures of the star surface are only 2.000 – 80.000 K .’… most probably there is some typo…

Hope you will have a look at my essay also…

Dear Mr. Satyavarapu Naga Parameswara Gupta,

Thank you very much for your kind comment and your encouragement. You definitely understand the point, and you clearly also see the problem.

In my article “Quantum Astronomy Part I” is described the model of the sun having a hollow core as introduced in. The model helps to explain a number of experimental facts of kinetics, energetics, and sun spectroscopy based on classic physics. The origin of the sun's energy is not the thermonuclear process taking place in its core, but the coherent, anisotropic gravitational compression of the atomic hydrogen in the solar shell at the temperature of 6298°K.

And article “Manifesto. The Manifesto. The Galactic Internet”

The temperature in Kelvin (2000 – 80000) Kelvin

I read your essay today, and find that we are in even more agreement than usual.

In 1998 we proposed the metagalaxy model as a hollow sphere with a shell of solid hydrogen at a temperature of about 3K and radius R=c/H =1.1214x10^26 m or 11.8535x10^9 lightyears. [Ilyanok A.M. Quantum Astronomy. Part II. arXiv: astro-ph / 0001059]. This size metagalaxy was confirmed by experiments with the WMAP satellite 2003. Jeffrey Weeks calculations have shown that the universe is finite and very compact, a radius of about 11 billion lightyears.

More details can be found in the work A. Ilyanok “Femtotechnologies. Step I Atom Hydrogen”

Dear Alexander M. Ilyanok,

Wonderful details sir, You worked out a lot of details about,"anisotropic gravitational compression of the atomic hydrogen in the solar shell", and definitely based on experimental results.

My apologies sir, I hope I did not hurt your feelings, I was just casually asked further details...

Best wishes for your essay...........

Alexander and Tatiana,

I read with great interest your essay with new ideas. I believe that overcoming the crisis in basic science is possible only if the perceived support of various gnoseological paradigms, and thus the search directions for solving major scientific, existential problems - the eternal source of clean energy. Do you work for this major goal for humanity.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr. Ilyanok,

As usual your work is excellent. Perhaps, in the equation (1) you have a typo. Mass M is not in the right place. Does the equation (7) is valid for a system planet / moons?

Dear Mr. Branko L Zivlak

Thank you for comment. Indeed, you are right. Formula (1) has a typo – sure, mass should be in numerator. Then the equation (7) is valid for a system of planet.

I read your essay with pleasure, I found many interesting things. I thought over similar ideas in my work Femtotechnologies. step i atom hydrogen

Hello, professor Ilyanok,

Congratulations.I asked me if you had already thought about main gravitational codes implying so comportments in spacetime.These codes do not seem to be electromagnetic if I can say.

My second question is about these superluminal velocities,do you consider these particles waves like bosons photons in a simplistic vue.Because our standard model does not seem to be ok with this quantum gravitation.This reasoning implies that we can pass c but not with particles waves of our standard model,a photon must respect this special relativity.That is why a boson so cannot and so the graviton which are photons bosons in a simplictic vue cannot explain this quant gravity, because the waves of gravity are speeder than c them.The gravitational waves of course them respecting this special and general relativity them are Under c.So a waves of gravity is different.The main codes seem gravitational and that implies a gravitational aerther from the central cosm singularity,physical and mathematical.

I liked your essays ,I like also this plasma physics, this 4th state of matter Under our thermodynamics and this wonderful equation PV=nRT ....Best Regards

ps I discussed on linkedin about the plasma physics and fusion ,I think that several exoermiments have forgotten a foundamental .The stellarator I beleive for example,they try to create the fusion with PV T ok but we are on earth with g and on the sun it is g' ,so I have suggested them to put the system in rotation in space to reach g' if the fusion on sun appears with specific pression, density, with g on earthn it is alost of time, it will be easier in reaching g' due to rotation ilmplying an artificial gravitation.Sometimes the complexity returns to simplicity.

All the best and good luck in this contest

Dear Steve Dufourny,

Thank you very much for your kind comment and very interesting questions. You clearly see the problem in modern physics. I want note the next.

It is considered unpromising today to study huge interval between nucleus and atom

external shell, so called femtoregion, spread from nanometers to femtometers. A lot of the problems that we face in the nano region cannot be solved without understanding the processes taking place in the femto region. We no longer separate the study of atom and nucleus. At present there are separate approaches to the study of atom and its nucleus. For the atom they usually study electromagnetic interaction, for the nucleus – the mass defect. Everything is interconnected in nature. We believe that in physics there was initially made a fundamental mistake, when the charge and the mass were artificially separated and the electromagnetic mass of the nucleus and other elementary particles were no longer taken into consideration. Our researches show that the electromagnetic mass of the nuclei forms the atom structure and controls the energetic condition of the electron including the valence electron. It follows that it is the femtofield that determines the chemical bonds in a molecule, which contradicts modern quantum-chemical approaches. Thus, it is the femtofield that is the basis of nanotechnologies.

It means that without research atoms femtoregion it is impossible to eliminate an abyss which arose between gravitation and electromagnetism. More details can be found in my works.

You are welcome Professor Ilyanok,

I am thanking you very much also for your kind words.It is nice.Thanks also for these détails.It is very relevant about these comportments of nuclei and atoms.I learn in the same time and understand better this nanotechnology and how we analyse these bonds.I liked a lot the works of Feynman about alpha this fine structure constan,t and the self electron energy.I have read his discussions about it.He was so relevant and general.

All the best and good luck professor in this contest.

Dear Alexander,

Thank you for your kind words in the post "there are no goals as such it's all play" essay. Congratulations on your out of the box hypothesis of hollow sun and your in depth explanation of how this might be the true case and how humanity can benefit from pursuing this approach to attain sustainable energy on earth.

I would like to add that all possible configurations of sun are possible, only difference is how long that configuration lasts and for what purpose aka goal it i created. Universe does not leave any possibility alone. If it intends it can manifest, the key is intention. For example we can generate energy out of a burning match stick, we can delve in to the dynamics of how the match stick burns, but it's important to understand the intent of it's creator, the purpose of match stick is to burn for a brief time till it turns on something else. Now there are pulsars in the universe, they too radiate energy in a different geometric pattern on a different time scale and at different intensity and we might not know it's purpose fully as humans but there is an intention behind it's creation. It can be that nuclear fission is the answer in some cases of our energy needs, just a match stick in other cases and may be a hollow sphere of nuclear fusion as per your beautiful proposal for sustainable energy. So, we need to understand the goal better as much as we do the ways of achieving it.

We need to accept that it is not the lack of energy that is causing the suffering on earth, but the lack of willingness (human intention) to share the energy that we have with each other is the cause of all suffering and then we can go about achieving sustainable energy. Hence i am preaching love through mathematical models in the hope to deflect our intentions in the right direction.

Dear Alexander,

Your essay is reaching out at the limits of our existence.

In one of your comments you say :

As a result, modern physics has found itself in a metaphysical swamp, where mathematical abstractions prevail.

I couldn't more agree.

But also I think there is always hope in and for humanity, here in our emergent reality.

I hope that you will find some time to read/comment/rate my essay "The Purpose of Life"
