Essay Abstract

It is known that the Einstein's space-time, dark matter / energy and Higgs's boson is modern progressive scientific theories. Aristotle's ether long ago will reject, as error. But if to think, in what distinction is characteristic?

Author Bio

I was educated at the University of Moscow. My specialty is energetic, calling - Physics. Now I work a power engineer in the engineering office in Berlin.

Allowing for the language issue I agree your essays theme has much to commend it. I hope I may have demonstrated some if it's truth in my own essay.

Best wishes

Dear Peter,

I read your essay. The phenomenon, which you have shown is the visual manifestation of a more general, comprehensive law of nature. Many scientists from different sides came close to its opening. I also had some success in explaining the structure of the universe.

Unfortunately I have not so far translated into English a single work. I can offer you work in Russian and in German on www.derselber.ru

Sincerely Evgeny

Dear Evgeny,

I did a quick read but I chose this:

" To remove water from a cup, it is necessary to fill it instead of water by the air. Further, in my

interpretation to remove air from a cup, we should fill the cup instead of air by the ether. Thus,

the cup can not be empty, only one medium can be replaced by another. Ether, according to

Aristotle, "is more subtle substance" than the air."

See my essay : http://www.fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1552

All the best with your essay!

Dear Evgeny,

See in my essay about gravitons ether and dark matter. There is another way to understand the reality.

Dear Evgeny,

Please excuse me for my question. I did not expect that a Russian text will not be converted correctly but hope that the question is clear. Thank you. Felix Lev.

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 participant`s 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.

Dear Evgeny!

Very interesting and profound ideas in your essay. The idea of rotation, the idea of ​​vortices is not sufficiently advanced in fundamental physics. But it looks like a rock is moved. You probably know, there is a good article by Alexander Zenkin "Scientific counter-revolution in mathematics." He concluded: ".. he truth should be drawn and should be presented to" an unlimited circle "of spectators". Wonderful pictures! Highest score your ideas and your conclusions.
