Dear Vladimir Nikolaevich Fedorov,

Please excuse me for I have no intention of disparaging in any way any part of your essay.

I merely wish to point out that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate.

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 perhaps comment on its merit.

Dear Vladimir, great! Vortices and more time Vortices!

This essentially Photons are solitons which forcibly moving in its own wave of elasticity like a warp-engine.

It means that there are no fundamental particles of electronic level of matter with a greater mass than the electron. Therefore, the Planck mass and Planck length waves, the event horizon and the black holes are not sufficiently substantiated the abstract generalizations, which have no physical meaning. – Excellent!

I agree with your idea of the fractal matter, it is in good agreement with the densest hexagonal packing. However, New Cartesian Physic, which is based on the equivalence of space-matter, considers that the physical vacuum is the state of moving space. The concept is Very Good (ether) are not required.

The concept of moving space-matter helped me:

- To transform the uncertainty principle Heisenberg in the principle of definiteness of points of space-matter;

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

- To formulate the law of gravitation Lorentz;

- Give the formula for the pressure of the Universe;

- To reveal the essence of gravitational mass as the flow vector of the centrifugal acceleration across the surface of the corpuscles, etc.

From New Cartesian Physic great potential in understanding the world. To show this potential in his essay I gave materialistic explanations of the paranormal and supernatural. Inmay, I made a mistake that has bound New Cartesian physiks with the paranormal and supernatural, because it does not attract the attention of others. Visit my essay and you will find something in it about New Cartesian Physic. Note the drawing of the geometric ratios of the s atom.

Sincerely, Boris Dizhechko.

Dear Vladimir,

I have been very interested in LIGO and LISA projects, I read an article last year from Russian scientist that predicted that the gravitational waves that were detected recently, would happen about couple of hundred times per year,

As Japanese, Chinese German and Italian scientist are building or improving their antennas to be more sensitive for gravitational waves, and I really hope that all these stations would grab these waves simultaneously, what is your opinion??

Kind regards

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!

«………………….. Do you mean these ‘vortices of deeper level of matter’ have no relation with Gravitational waves….?»

Yes, you are right, vortices rotate in pairs in opposite directions. Pairs of vortexes are formed simultaneously, to compensate for the torque. They are only in pairs can quantum-parametrically converted, often through a phase of photons....

Dear Boris Semyonovich

Thank you for your kind words.

With regard to the supernatural, it is necessary to call all their names. And Einstein's theory of relativity and the quantum mechanics are using abstract and ideal (supernatural) properties of matter and fields. I would have called the theories as "general the Bible of relativity, " and "the bible of quantum mechanics", this is, in my opinion, better reflects their nature. This is what would smile.

My comments about your essay will be on your forum thread.

Dear Vladimir Nikolaevich Fedorov

I invite you and every physicist to read my work “TIME ORIGIN,DEFINITION AND EMPIRICAL MEANING FOR PHYSICISTS, Héctor Daniel Gianni ,I’m not a physicist.

How people interested in “Time” could feel about related things to the subject.

1) Intellectuals interested in Time issues usually have a nice and creative wander for the unknown.

2) They usually enjoy this wander of their searches around it.

3) For millenniums this wander has been shared by a lot of creative people around the world.

4) What if suddenly, something considered quasi impossible to be found or discovered such as “Time” definition and experimental meaning confronts them?

5) Their reaction would be like, something unbelievable,… a kind of disappointment, probably interpreted as a loss of wander…..

6) ….worst than that, if we say that what was found or discovered wasn’t a viable theory, but a proved fact.

7) Then it would become offensive to be part of the millenary problem solution, instead of being a reason for happiness and satisfaction.

8) The reader approach to the news would be paradoxically adverse.

9) Instead, I think it should be a nice welcome to discovery, to be received with opened arms and considered to be read with full attention.

11)Time “existence” is exclusive as a “measuring system”, its physical existence can’t be proved by science, as the “time system” is. Experimentally “time” is “movement”, we can prove that, showing that with clocks we measure “constant and uniform” movement and not “the so called Time”.

12)The original “time manuscript” has 23 pages, my manuscript in this contest has only 9 pages.

I share this brief with people interested in “time” and with physicists who have been in sore need of this issue for the last 50 or 60 years.

Thank you for the invitation to your essey, I posted the answer on your forum thread.

I liked your essay, especially the phrase

«I can easily explain that “time dilation” is a physically inexistent phenomenon, because is just inertia or gravity “clocks slowing” and also can show in detail that twin paradox».

FQXI Contests are first of all new ideas - "crazy ideas" (N.Bohr). You give such ideas. I have one question: What is the ontological status of "the physical vacuum medium"?

Dear Vladimir

I have read your fascinating essay full of your confident statements and calculations. I liked the small icons links to full size illustrations I should try that method in my future essays! The idea of hydrodynamical-like vortices forming matter in a universal fluid is intriguing. In my Beautiful Universe Model the universal lattice is formed of rotating dielectric nodes. A vortex has opposite spin direction if you look at its axis from different direction, and these spins may be the equivelant of the + and - poles of the proposed dipole building blocks. The electromagnetic right- hand rule must derive from such primitive spins. You frequently mention deBroglie waves surroundng matter. I totally agree that such wave constitute the gravitational field. Beyond these remarks I am not technically qualified to comment on your essay. For example of the many equations you present I am not sure which are your own proposals and which are commonly accepted ones.I wish you good luck! Have fun with physics.

Dear Vladimir F. Tamari

Many thanks for the kind words about my essay.

My equation for the de Broglie waves is derived from the conventional equation and the momentum conservation law. In the conventional equation, it is unreasonably assumed that one can put any mass in the denominator and obtain, for example, the Planck mass and the Planck wavelength, as a de Broglie wave....

Dear Vladimir,

You wrote an interesting and provocative Essay. Despite I disagree with some of your claims, in particular the ones on gravitation and gravitational waves, I feel that some of your ideas deserve more attention by the scientific community. Thus, I will give you the highest score in order to help you to better spread them. Good luck in the Contest, I hope that you will have a chance to read our Essay, which, instead, discusses "traditional" gravitational waves.

Dear Christian,

I pleasure read your essay, gave him high mark, and understood why many people have questions to him.

But I'm not embarrassed «confused about the relevance of this essay».

This dispute about gravity and gravitational waves has the deep roots of the dispute between Descartes and Newton and the dispute is still not resolved.

"Today it is hard to believe, but contemporaries accused Newton that his theory "returns science in the Middle Ages" Thomas S. Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. (1970) . If the bodies are attracted one toonher, then they should spend energy, but from the theory it is not visible, where does the energy come from and how does it replenish? ... There was no (and is no now) a cycle of energy in the theory, and this happened after Descartes, After Descartes introduced the principle of conservation of momentum, which natural science took literally as a life-giving sip of water." L.E. Fedulayev (2009).

The dispute that you raised about the gravitational waves will allow adequately answer the questions of this contest. The theory of gravitational waves is the key theory of self-organization of matter, therefore we observe gravitational attraction as a mechanism for its realization, which is still to be understood in detail.

I wish you success in the contest.

Kind regards,

Dear Vladimir Nikolaevich,

First of all I'd like to notice that it's very worthy work deserving undoubtedly high score.

I've found a lot of interesting and deep thoughts in your essay, some of which correspond to my approach in an explanation of space, time, a matter etc. With some I don't agree. For example I have other conception about the electron structuring or atom formation. Nevertheless, I've found in you more an adherent than the opponent.

I wish you the further creative successes!

Dear Dr. Vladimir Nikolaevich Fedorov,

As you said “The physical vacuum medium - there is the material, non-linear, multi-level and fractal medium.” I agree with it, but to my opinion, it is that

Ultimate foundation of the nature of the large scale structure of the Universe is that elementary particles or a physical vacuum medium?

I think, you should to define it in more detail.

If someone consider whether the foundation of the nature is a physical vacuum medium or an elementary particle, it must be defined more definitely, as close as possible to the reality of nature.

Of course, it is a big question.

“Law of gravity is valid only near the surfaces of celestial bodies of the solar system”, but it is impossible to be definable at plank scale and around supermassive black holes in the center of many galaxies, unless an exact mechanism of gravitational interaction is discovered.

As taking into consideration the electron–positron annihilation and the de Broglie wave, your hypothetical helicoidal vortex ring and vortex ball rotating may cause to produce elementary particles and virtual particles. But, I think that there a cause to generate the vortices is that a “critical flow speed” of the physical vacuum medium. In other words, the speed of light may become a key property for this.

“Unfounded generalizations and frequency of parametric resonance” is very interesting for me, while associating with an equilibrium condition and being without energy dissipation.

For that “The medium of physical vacuum, together with the earth, is moving at a speed in spherical gravisphere of sun”, I think “The medium of physical vacuum, together with the earth" may take a place only within the Hill sphere.

With Best Regards,
