TOPIC: Postulates and Prejudices in Fundamental Physics by Janko Kokosar [refresh]

Author Janko Kokosar wrote on Aug. 23, 2012 @ 11:51 GMT
Essay Abstract

A new view on quantum gravity is presented, among others a new step toward quantization of gravity is presented. A model is also developed, where the elementary particles are black holes. This disagrees with the Higgs mechanism. An explanation is also shown why three space dimensions exist, and what is uncertainty of masses of black holes. A new view on consciousness theory is shown. Regardless of the correctness of the above theories it is shown, what postulates are and what prejudices are.

Janko,

You stated "It would be strange that gravity would not be a primary reason for the elementary particles, because the elementary particles are foundation of space-time, and the same is true for gravity. But this con rms that the elementary particles are BHs or something very similar to BHs or at least that they are gravitationally built up objects,"

To perhaps give you some more food for thought on your essay, I agree with this sentence in a way. Modeling particles as elastic wave packet (see Sandhu Section 5) holes using a mathematically correct form of the Einsten tensor, imagine the Fig.2 of Marcoen's paper as traveling holes instead of particles. Does this seem akin to what you are getting at?

Regards,

Jeff Baugher

I wrote still some summary about the above paper. It is in attachement and it is found on viXra.

I hope for discusion with arguments, anti-arguments, new knowledge, and new ideas, because this is the most important part of this contenst. I also read other essays in this contest and I will give arguments, and when it will be clear, I will give marks.

Good Luck

Dear Janko,

In your essay elementary particles may be as black holes. But in accordance with the Theory of Infinite Hierarchical Nesting of Matter black holes do not exist. And at the level of particles there is strong gravitation.

Dear Sergey,

You describe that interactions of elementary particle do not give black holes (BHs). Thus you conclude that black holes do not exist. But I claim that elementary particles are already BHs without typical gravitational interactions. I also do not claim that elementary particles are the same type of BHs as large holes. (Quantum physics probably change a lot of properties.)

You also claim that enlarged gravitational constant at small distances exists. I claim that this is agains rules of general relativity, and against claims of Duff.

Best regards,

Janko Kokosar

p.s. Some time ago I searched theory of strong gravitation as a reference. I do not rememember precisely, do you the only author of this idea?

Sergey G Fedosin wrote on Sep. 23, 2012 @ 09:06 GMT
Dear Janko,

According to your essay: < But this confirms that the elementary particles are BHs or something very similar to BHs or at least that they are gravitationally built up objects.> I supposed that you understand black holes (BH) in usual way. The idea of strong gravitation is very old. A lot of people try to calculate Strong gravitational constant. With this constant the radius of a particle with the mass of proton is close to radius in the formula for the black hole:
$R = \frac {2\Gamma M_p}{c^2} = 5.63\cdot 10^{-15} m$
, where
$\Gamma = 1.514 \cdot 10^{29} m^3 /(kg s)$
is strong gravitational constant, Mp is proton mass, c is speed of light. But in reality radius of proton Rp is equal to
$8.73 \cdot 10^{-16} m$
, and so Rp < R. On the other hand instead of c we must use speed 4.3 c in the formula for the radius of black hole. It is so the speed of light for the proton is the characteristic speed of its matter, as for the neutron star the characteristic speed of its matter is equal to
$C_s = 6.7 \cdot 10^7 m/s$
. See Stellar_constants. Then for the black hole at particle level of matter must be:
$R_b = \frac {2\Gamma M_p}{(4.3 c)^2} = 3 \cdot 10^{-16} m$
. We se that Rp > Rb, and proton is not a black hole, as a neutron star.

Dear Janko Kokosar

Very interesting to see your essay.

Perhaps all of us are convinced that: the choice of yourself is right!That of course is reasonable.

So may be we should work together to let's the consider clearly defined for the basis foundations theoretical as the most challenging with intellectual of all of us.

Why we do not try to start with a real challenge is very close and are the focus of interest of the human science: it is a matter of mass and grain Higg boson of the standard model.

Knowledge and belief reasoning of you will to express an opinion on this matter:

You have think that: the Mass is the expression of the impact force to material (definition from the ABSOLUTE theory of me) - so no impact force, we do not feel the Higg boson - similar to the case of no weight outside the Earth's atmosphere.

Does there need to be a particle with mass for everything have volume? If so, then why the mass of everything change when moving from the Earth to the Moon? Higg boson is lighter by the Moon's gravity is weaker than of Earth?

The LHC particle accelerator used to "Smashed" until "Ejected" Higg boson, but why only when the "Smashed" can see it,and when off then not see it ?

Can be "locked" Higg particles? so when "released" if we do not force to it by any the Force, how to know that it is "out" or not?

You are should be boldly to give a definition of weight that you think is right for us to enjoy, or oppose my opinion.

Because in the process of research, the value of "failure" or "success" is the similar with science. The purpose of a correct theory be must is without any a wrong point ?

Glad to see from you comments soon,because still have too many of the same problems.

Kind Regards !

Dear Janko,

I think you have done a fantastic job with this essay. You manage to touch on many aspects of some very profound issues in a short space and also provide excellent context and referencing. I think the subject of consciousness is quite difficult and is probably beyond our current science, but it is perfectly legitimate (and interesting too) to speculate about it in an educated...

Dear Janko,

i promised to read again your essay and i did it this morning.

I must fully affiliate to the points made by Benjamin in his post above.

Although i am not sure if one can link the features of BH's to the features of "particles", i nonetheless think that it is worth tinking seriously about it. My approach to tink of "particles" as "empty containers" for "properties...

Dear Benjamin,

Thank you for reading my essay and giving good opinion. It is beneficial to me that one Ph. D. student gives good opinion about my essay. It is also a favor that someone reads it precisely and comments, this is what our amateur theories lack. So it is well to obtain any opinion, still better if it is professional or skilled one. It gives new ideas.

I hope that we will further exchange some physical opinions, also after this contests.

Because I cannot read all essays until Friday, can you recommend the best ones by your opinion.

Stefan Weckbach replied on Sep. 30, 2012 @ 11:07 GMT
Dear Janko,

hope you read my comment above. I rated your essay as very positive and i want to remark some additional reasons for this. You have thought intensively about consciousness as a necessary ingredient for every measurement theory and therefore for physics in general. Your references to some latest experimental evidence for quantum effects in living organisms where very helpfull for me. I read them and realized that Tegmarks calculations may be right, but QM could have some tricky workarounds to shape the brains' mechanism quantum mechanically.

Best wishes,

Stefan

After studying about 250 essays in this contest, I realize now, how can I assess the level of each submitted work. Accordingly, I rated some essays, including yours.

Cood luck.

If you do not understand why your rating dropped down. As I found ratings in the contest are calculated in the next way. Suppose your rating is
$R_1$
and
$N_1$
was the quantity of people which gave you ratings. Then you have
$S_1=R_1 N_1$
of points. After it anyone give you
$dS$
of points so you have
$S_2=S_1+ dS$
of points and
$N_2=N_1+1$
is the common quantity of the people which gave you ratings. At the same time you will have
$S_2=R_2 N_2$
of points. From here, if you want to be R2 > R1 there must be:
$S_2/ N_2>S_1/ N_1$
or
$(S_1+ dS) / (N_1+1) >S_1/ N_1$
or
$dS >S_1/ N_1 =R_1$
In other words if you want to increase rating of anyone you must give him more points
$dS$
then the participants rating
$R_1$
was at the moment you rated him. From here it is seen that in the contest are special rules for ratings. And from here there are misunderstanding of some participants what is happened with their ratings. Moreover since community ratings are hided some participants do not sure how increase ratings of others and gives them maximum 10 points. But in the case the scale from 1 to 10 of points do not work, and some essays are overestimated and some essays are drop down. In my opinion it is a bad problem with this Contest rating process. I hope the FQXI community will change the rating process.
