CATEGORY: Questioning the Foundations Essay Contest (2012) [back]
TOPIC: The Secret Life and Role of the Neutrino by Kumar S Nochur [refresh]

Author Kumar S Nochur wrote on Sep. 7, 2012 @ 11:10 GMT
Essay Abstract

The identity of the neutrino as the particle of consciousness and its role in that capacity as the universal information carrier and transmitter are explained in this paper. Facts about neutrino release from blackholes, their ubiquitous presence and incredible numbers, the role of the conscious observer in quantum mechanics, and the new theory of neutrino condensates are used to delineate the critical information agency role that they play in the operation and evolution of the universe. The primacy of consciousness to a comprehensive Grand Theory of Everything is also pointed out.

Dear Kumar Nochur,

Change of flavour of a neutrino that has non-zero mass as it propagates in neutrino oscillation, is indicative of dynamic transformation of tetrahedral-branes in a continuum of string, expressional in Coherently-cyclic cluster-matter paradigm of universe, in that, reprocessing of information by the observer from the propagating temporal tetrahedral-branes in string, is descriptive.

With best wishes,

Dear Jayakar,

Thanks for your post on my essay on the secrets of the neutrino. Can you kindly send me a reference or link to the coherently cyclic matter paradigm so I can learn more about it? Regards,

Kumar

Dear Kumar,

What is information and what is not ?

And what is the medium of this information?

When you write that information cannot be lost,

The body of the child undergoes billions of reactions every fraction of a second,

It is transformed and undergoes changes,

Where is registered all this information not to get lost?

If the information does not get lost, means that the Universe stores somewhere this information. Under what shape it is stored and where can we find it?

Dear Amazigh,

Thanks for your post on my neutrino essay.

Re your question on where is information registered or stored, as per the claim of the essay it is the neutrino itself that is responsible for particle-izing this function of the Unitary Field of Consciousness. Since information cannot be lost or destroyed, it has to reside "somewhere'. That universal repository is the UFC.

Information being lost from material or energetic objects (example: particles or photons being trapped by a black hole) is released in the form of neutrinos escaping from them. If we could "read" the information in a neutrino, we could recover the original signal encoded into it. Even if we cannot, the neutrino contains and carries that information till a recipient object receives all or some of it in an info/energy exchange interaction.

Your attempt to connect conciousness information to the neutrino is bold. What is lacking is the means to test such a theory due to the severe lack of our ability to get information from neutrinos, thus, how reliably can we measure this correlation?

You had stated: "The mind, which is the ultimate container and...

Dear Tony,

There is much food for thought in your response! I agree with you about the primal role of light in all this.

Dear Kumar,

I quite agree with you in that: < Matter and energy in total can be neither created nor destroyed, but can be converted from one form to another, as also between mass to energy and vice versa.> Matter as a quantity of substance, and energy-momentum, have their own conservation laws. From energy and momentum of particle we find its mass and velocity which are secondary...

Dear

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 - 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.

Regards !

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.

Hello Sergey,

I appreciate your taking the time to read and rate the essays here, including mine. Thanks for your help to get me one step closer to the ten ratings needed to get the The Secret Life and Role of the Neutrino to the next level of review by judges.

If I may ask, what criteria or framework did you arrive at after reading 250 essays? Would be interesting for many of us to know!

Warm regards,

Kumar

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.
