Essay Abstract

The fact that without choice there is no freedom is generally accepted. But how such choice materialize itself in the real world without breaking its laws is not trivial. Trying to give an answer to the question about relationship between causality and teleology, we have “re-built” our physical world using an almost totally deterministic model for. The model is based on a fractal scalar approach, in which matter and fields are expressed in terms of Energy distributions. Then we have identified a possible mechanism allowing such interference between physical and meta-physical worlds. A minimal voltage impulse within a cell in our brains could be sufficient to trigger a complex chain of deterministic electrical-chemical-mechanical processes that achieve the intended action.

Dear Mr. Borsello

Your essay is not empty talk. It is one of the best.

In my FQXi essay for 2015 year,

http://fqxi.org/data/essay-contest-files/Zivlak_MathStr

formulas 25,26 you can find exact paralelism between SI and ELM for elementary charge.

Dear Branko,

thanks for your appreciation.

I've had a look to your essay for 2015-contest in which the rule of "octave harmonic" (powers of 2) is in line with my personal thinking. Thank you for your suggestion.

On the subject of elementary charge I still have a problem with your (25) and (26) because at the end you have that [kg*m^3*s^-2] is [J*m]. May be I've not quite well understood.

If you take eV as Energy you have (in SI) [A*s][kg*A^-1*m^2*s^-3] that is [kg*m^2*s^-2] and that corresponds to J. So squared charge [C^2] should infact correspond to [J^2*m^-2*s^2] that is in SI [kg^2*m^2*s^-2]. This makes clear the correspondance between Charge and Momentum (m*v).

Probably,in your (25) we should find mass^2 and vel^2 as numerators, or if you have mn^2*c^3 you should have tn/rn as well. This is what I caught, at least.

I hope my work and suggestions could help in your work.

Best regards,

Claudio

Caro sig Borsello

Si può vedere la wikipedia che è [is [ML^3T^-2], https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statcoulomb

È importante che la mia teoria è corretto valore ottenuto per tutte le costanti fisiche. Valutazione per voi 9 dopo i vostri commenti sul mio forum. Cercate di capire la mia teoria e approccio matematico. Il modo migliore è cercare di trovare un errore in matematica così come nel commento del sig Walker. Non sono stato coinvolto in elettrostatica. E 'possibile comprendere molto meglio con il mio approccio e nell'elettrostatica. Spero che tu capisca che in (26) costante 10 ^ 9 risultato strana definizione di Coulomb.

Dear Branko,

first of all I want to say that your theory is strong and fascinating, and I think that it will lead to interesting insights.

I get your point about StatC, that is expressed in Gaussian units.

In such metric, vacuum permittivity ε0 is included (1/squareroot) in the charge definition. Since SI units for ε0 are [A2*s4*kg-1*m-3], if you divide C[A*s] by the squareroot of such units you get exactly [s-1*kg1/2*m3/2], that is physically coherent with cgs metric.

Best regards,

and thank you for your appreciation,

Claudio

In equation (2) for Gravity, F = G M1 M2 / R^2, note that I have suggested the replacement

F = ( ( 1 – 2 D-M-C-C )^-1 ) G M1 M2 / R^2, where D-M-C-C, the dark-matter-compensation-constant, has the value square-root((60±10)/4) 10^-5 — the Gravity Probe B science team says that my idea has already been refuted — but I suggest that the 4 ultra-precise gyroscopes worked correctly and confirmed what I call the Fernández-Rañada-Milgrom effect.

"Of course freedom, as the possibility of making choices, can be used for making a better world or to destroy it." Freedom for developing science and technology might have the basic effect of speeding up Darwinian evolution — and such speeding up might not be pleasing to human beings.

Dear David Brown,

thank you for your comment. Actually I'm trying to test the validity of my assumption with each known equation, descovering perhaps new correspondences. Your corrective proposition could be as well tested in the Electromagnetical domain just for seeing whether it applies a similar correction to the capacitance law.

I will read your essay and comment.

Best regards,

Claudio

SIMPLICITY by Joe Fisher

I'm sorry I don't find your comment any more, anyway I want to give you an answer.

I agree with you and with Meister Einstein that we cannot make Nature simpler that it (or Her) is. This is "simply" because we are not allowed to ... say Nature how She should be ...

By opposite our models will be necessarly less accurate that reality and so simplicity is welcome with them.

I will read your essay and comment.

Best regards,

Claudio

Dear 8M Borsello,

Nice essay,

Your ideas and thinking are excellent for eg… in your conclusion…you said," We can extend the exposed concept using a fractal analogy. So we can say that the chain of our choices, as conscious entities, can be seen as the actuation of a superior decision, and that the whole of decision could be the actualization of an higher aim, no matter if you...

Hi Claudio,

This is a very clear thought provoking essay. I rate it as one of the best.

"This implies that at the very border of the quantic world a single unit cannot be divided, so it must “decide” “where” to go, either one side or the other (I simplify in a mono-dimensional scenario)."

This is getting down to one of the fundamental "funny businesses" at the heart of physics. Is Calculus valid for physics below the wavelength of the particles that make up objects. We could say Newton got away with it, but at Newton's time atoms and QM were unknown (or not accepted).

Check out my website www.digitalwavetheory.com and my essay (shortest in the contest).

Thank you for your essay.

Hi Don,

thank you for your rating.

I've had a look to your essay and website, I find it great and funny. I hope you can find something worthy to be referenced in my personal works. I will let you know when I will publish other papers.

I would like to highlight the fact that we constantly "force" the result of some stochastic processes in order to materialize the very first impulse for our conscious actions, despite all the consequences are deterministically ruled by physics laws. In particular when we decide to communicate a bit of (real) information.

Best regards,

Claudio B. Borsello
