Essay Abstract

In mathematics,the key principal of the Phisics, Leibnitz and Gauss left the question latent of what physical action produces the square roots of negative numbers and recognized that algebra could not teach anything in this,but that general a physical principle underlay to all the algebraic equations.In this work we arrived to this principle logical advance also by John Wheeler: "only principle of organization wich is no organization"; a phenomenon self-referential deductive system mirror counter reflexive that seems universal to all Science and Humanities. This bit principle -U2+ states that the Universe is an logical mirror that,rather tan interchanging left and right,traded every force particle for a matter particle,and viceversa.This effect counter-reciprocal mirror occurs in our complex numbers,quaternions, octonions...in all the Mathematical one and in all the concepts that the man constructs of the reality like Observer-participancy. How come existence? If and when we learn how to combine bits of -U2+ in fantastically large numbers to obtain what we call existence,we will know better what we mean both by bit and by existence: bit originated in front of a mirror.That is to say, it depends on where one begins or to that side of the stopped east mirror: bit from it | it from bit A simple "wide vision" that allows us to understand the world.In the emotion of this forecast of Wheeler: "...surely someday,we can believe, we will grasp the central idea of it all as so simple,so beautiful"

Dear Sir,

The validity of a physical statement is judged by its correspondence to reality. The validity of a mathematical statement is judged by its logical consistency. In the mirror example, Alice was looking at the reflection, which follows a different rule than spin or rotation. This corresponds to reality. The number -1 has two parts: the digit part and the sign part. In mathematical...

Thank you for presenting your nice essay. I saw the abstract and will post my comments soon. I also said something same. So you don't think you produce material from your thinking. . . .

Dear Marcelo,

As the contest in Wheeler's honor draws to a close, leaving for the moment considerations of rating and prize money, and knowing we cannot all agree on whether 'it' comes from 'bit' or otherwise or even what 'it' and 'bit' mean, and as we may not be able to read all essays, though we should try, I pose the following 4 simple questions and will rate you accordingly before July 31 when I will be revisiting your blog.

"If you wake up one morning and dip your hand in your pocket and 'detect' a million dollars, then on your way back from work, you dip your hand again and find that there is nothing there…

1) Have you 'elicited' an information in the latter case?

2) If you did not 'participate' by putting your 'detector' hand in your pocket, can you 'elicit' information?

3) If the information is provided by the presence of the crisp notes ('its') you found in your pocket, can the absence of the notes, being an 'immaterial source' convey information?

Finally, leaving for the moment what the terms mean and whether or not they can be discretely expressed in the way spin information is discretely expressed, e.g. by electrons

4) Can the existence/non-existence of an 'it' be a binary choice, representable by 0 and 1?"

Answers can be in binary form for brevity, i.e. YES = 1, NO = 0, e.g. 0-1-0-1.

Best regards,

Akinbo

Dear Marcelo,

Thanks for your nice essay, well done!

That is to say, it depends on where one begins or to that side of the stopped east mirror: bit from it | it from bit A simple "wide vision" that allows us to understand the world.In the emotion of this forecast of Wheeler: "...surely someday,we can believe, we will grasp the central idea of it all as so simple,so beautiful"

so what's the central idea? i think it's symmetry...

and from a different point view, my essay may interest you

Dear Prof.Sanchez,

I am sorry to read your essay lately in this contest and many thanks for such presentation.

Your "mirror" concept of reality is very much interesting.

I also think that our perceivable reality is basically a total of two sides of a "mirror" like something. I invite you to read my essay if you can spare your time. Particularly I request you to read at least in its "introduction" and "inference" parts.

with Regards

Dipak

Luis,

I can't help but notice that you have not responded to any messages posted on your essay page?

Nonetheless, I find your assumption of the emerging phenomena based on a certain type of Strange Loop to be very intuitive and well presented. As such I would like to rate your essay highly. However, before I do, I would like to run some questions by you if I may via email. My email address is: msm@physicsofdestiny.com

I look forward to hearing from you and supporting your efforts before the conclusion of this competition.

Regards,

Manuel

Dear Marcelo,

I thought your essay was excellent. It was scrupulously organized and meticulously presented.

I am a rusty crusty old realist. I hope you will not mind if I point out the problem I have with the science of physics.

In my essay BITTERS, I emphasize the observable fact that everything in the real Universe is unique, once. Each real snowflake is unique, once, which means that each real molecule of each real snowflake must also be unique, once. It cannot simply be snowflakes; everything in the real Universe can only ever be unique, once.

This presents something of a scientific problem in that no measurement of anything unique, once, can be taken for it only happens once. No experiment to detect unique, once, can ever be devised.

If only Wheeler would have asked:

Is the real Universe simple? Yes.

Is the abstract universe simple? No.

Is unique, once simple? Yes.

Is quantum theory simple? No.

I wish you the best of luck in the contest,

Joe

Dear Luis,

Your essay touched on a broad variety of issues in physics. I think it was well written and interesting. The mirror approach was a good idea. Perhaps you might find my essay interesting with regard to symmetry around the Fibonacci sequence's positive and negative parts.

Best wishes,

Antony

Having read so many insightful essays, I am probably not the only one to find that my views have crystallized, and that I can now move forward with growing confidence. I cannot exactly say who in the course of the competition was most inspiring - probably it was the continuous back and forth between so many of us. In this case, we should all be grateful to each other.

If I may, I'd like to...

Hello Marcelo from Margriet O'Regan from DownUnder

Dear Luis,

I have now finished reviewing all 180 essays for the contest and appreciate your contribution to this competition.

I have been thoroughly impressed at the breadth, depth and quality of the ideas represented in this contest. In true academic spirit, if you have not yet reviewed my essay, I invite you to do so and leave your comments.

You can find the latest version of my essay here:

May the best essays win!
