Essay Abstract

Mathematics by themselves cannot wonder towards a goal as they represent only inert symbols invented by humans with implied meanings, still residing in the human brains. The biological entities do have goals, from virus to humans. The goal of the human engineered mathematical theory of physics is to help us understand the ontological reality by mapping the interaction processes. This will help us become better innovative engineers and solve problems that enhance our survival goal while ameliorating threats to sustainability of the biosphere. Hence, we should adopt evolution process congruent thinking into our current mathematical epistemology.

Author Bio

ChandraSekhar Roychoudhuri is now a retired Research Professor at the University of Connecticut. He has held various research positions in industries (TRW, Perkin Elmer and United Technologies) for 14 years. Chandra has developed a very wide range of interests both in Nature Engineering (Physics, Chemistry, etc.) and in Social Engineering (economics, politics, etc.); almost everything that is heavily influencing and directing human social evolution. He has re-discover Non-Interaction Waves (NIW), a generalized property of all waves; which we have been neglecting for centuries. He has recently published the book, “Causal Physics: Photon Model by Non-Interaction of Waves” [CRC, 2014].

I will be delighted to see critical comments on my essay, "Empower Mathematical Equations Using Evolution Process Congruent Thinking". This will allow the evolution of my thinking logics in stead of staying stuck with my current state thinking.

Dear Chandrasekhar

It is a pleasure to see your essay here - having previously appreciated your unique talent both for proposing fascinating new physics concepts, and presenting them humbly, patiently explaining things while relating them to the wider context of both cosmic and human existence and goals. These qualities are fully evident in your present essay. You have remained faithful to...

I deeply value your appreciation and praise for my essay. I will have to read carefully your previous essay in the FQXi forum to appreciate your contribution further. But, let me make a comment on your comment here (quoted below, first);

Thanks Chandra for reiteration your positions relating to the details of wave supeposition and the mind etc. - depending on our models we may be talking along the same lines ... or not - I could not decide which at this moment. More power to you.

Hello Chandra

I am quite pleased, and impressed by your essay.

You clearly stated things which I had been thinking but have not found a way to express so powerfully and succinctly.

For our future, and our progress, we need to recognize that our working theories are not hallowed and unshakable, but just the best we have done so far. We have that instinct to do better, and we should. Holding onto our "popular" theories at all cost can and is hindering our ability to broaden our understanding and a more accurate perception of nature.

You have made this and other important points so elegantly.

Thank you.

Chip Akins

Dear Professor Chandrasekhar Roychoudhuri,

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 Joe Fisher:

I have quickly read your essay. You have raised some interesting points.

It is obvious that we think differently and model the perceptible universe differently. This is very healthy because none of us can understand everything we see. However, by comparing and contrasting or models we can keep on arrive at better models of the universe as we keep on evolving. In Plato’s allegorical story of imprisoned cave-dwelling people, the prisoners are making a model of the external universe based on the shadows cast inside the cave. All our experimental data are like Plato’s shadows. Now, we can apply the Indian allegorical story about how five blind people make reasonably realistic model of an elephant by comparing and integrating their notes generated by touching the elephant at different parts of its body. Therefore, the combination of the stories of the “Cave People” and the “Blind People” help us keep on iteratively enhancing our knowledge of the universe. This iterative approach is the best approach to allow the evolution of our mind and the evolution of our models of the universe.

I see and perceive the world as three-dimensional. You have concluded by saying:

“The real Universe consists only of one unified visible infinite surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.”

Unfortunately, I am unable to integrate this model in my 3D perception.

You have also underscored simplicity as a key to understanding the universe. An amoeba’s survival skills and repertoire are complex emergent properties out of billions of molecules working in harmony that are still beyond our accurate modeling capacity.

Sincerely,

ChandraSekhar.

Your ideas and thinking are excellent for eg…

Dear Чандрасекар Roychoudhuri

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. There is not movable a geometric space, and is movable physical space. These are different concepts.

I inform all the participants that use the electronic translator, therefore, my essay is written badly. I participate in the contest to familiarize English-speaking scientists with New Cartesian Physic, the basis of which the principle of identity of space and matter. Combining space and matter into a single essence, the New Cartesian Physic is able to integrate modern physics into a single theory. Let FQXi will be the starting point of this Association.

Don't let the New Cartesian Physic disappear! Do not ask for himself, but for Descartes.

New Cartesian Physic has great potential in understanding the world. To show potential in this essay I risked give "The way of The materialist explanation of the paranormal and the supernatural" - Is the name of my essay.

Visit my essay and you will find something in it about New Cartesian Physic. After you give a post in my topic, I shall do the same in your theme

Sincerely,

Dizhechko Boris
