Essay Abstract

What would you say if I tell you that there exists a decent probability for the total annihilation of Earth within couple of years? Because you don't know me personally you might shoot from the hip and say something like "Are you mad?", "Get real!", "Dream on" or something like that. Fair enough. Perhaps I should present my case and my action plan for you to judge.

Author Bio

Kimmo Rouvari is independent researcher focused mainly on theory of everything. He's the author of Theory of Everything by illusion.

Kimmo,

Yours is another scary message about our poor Earth!!

Can you be more specific about the people that you say are doing these experiments?

It may pass us by, as did the Millinium computer scare and those mini black holes at the LHC (about which I too worried).

I am not belittling possible danger one day from such experiments, just hoping you are wrong in this antimatter case!

Best wishes

Vladimir

You are not alone! I sincerely hope also that I'm wrong, but I'm afraid that I'm right. Based on analysis from my site traffic, probably (at least) Chinese and American research facilities are active on the subject.

This catched my attention What are the chances that a particle collider's strangelets will destroy the Earth? Well, if people are concerned with this kind of experiments they should immediately, I repeat, immediately check what Fermilab might be planning at this moment! They have downloaded numerous times my paper about antimatter. Are they going to give it a shot? If so, they might accidentally ignite a very nasty chain reaction.

So, if anybody knows someone at Fermilab, please do something!

Kimmo, glad you made it into the contest.

I hope you are wrong about anti-matter. I think other phenomena such as strangle ts are considered more likely dangers but when the potential impact is so high no stone must be left unturned.

Good luck

Hi Philip,

Thanks to you I'm in this year, but where's your essay?

I totally agree with your suggestion on turning every stone. I have been digging into the world of physics in serious manner for two years now. I have become more and more convinced that my theory is actually the theory. There is a chance that Fermilab and some Chinese lab is planning or conducting an experiment based on my method. Hopefully, we'll get some information on the results, but I suspect that in case of positive outcome, those results get classified.

But the cheney is out of the bottle now... If nothing is done, somebody might conduct an experiment which might be the last one on Earth.

One more thing. I'm at the moment writing a book about ToEbi (Introduction to Theory of Everything by illusion Sample from viXra.org). After I have finished The Foundation part (in couple of months) I'll send it to you, so you can make more informed opinion about the possibilities.

Dear Kimmo,

Your statement, ‘Every particle can act as its antiparticle’ is real; while I would like to notate another paradigm, in that antimatter is in analogue with the non-observational string-matter that exists in an incoherent eigen-rotational state with the observer.

This indicates that the earth may undergo metamorphosis rather than annihilation and thus ‘Steer the Future’ in an environment friendly pathway sustains the survival of Humanity, to certain extent.

With best wishes, Jayakar

Hi John,

I put my book project on hold for now, antimatter experiments have the priority over the book. Hopefully, I'll get back to writing during this year. My initial plan was to use CreateSpace as you have done, but who knows, those antimatter experiments might change that plan.

"What is between your FTEP spheres? Does it have any properties. You say FTE waves. What are they waving in?"

Probably nothing, I mean FTEPs might be the smallest ingredient, or at least the smallest relevant entity. FTEPs have properties, like size and (ToEbi defined) spin vector, but because they are the smallest relevant entities those properties are not that important in interactions between FTEPs in general. FTEP waves are probably just ordered movement of FTEPs, e.g. flux from rotating Earth.

"Neither Newton nor Einstein liked 'action-at-the-distance' and neither do I. "

Count me in! :-)

"Do you have plans to examine the big of cosmology? "

I have written few random thought about phenomena in cosmology, those can be found from my blog. For now, my focus is mainly on particles and annihilation phenomenon.

I will read your essay in couple of days!

Hi Kimmo,

I have read your scary essay. I don't know anything about antimatter research but maybe I should look into it. I think I'll put this threat together with the asteroid risk, both things I can do nothing about and therefore should not spend much time worrying about. Though I suppose there was some good news because we could use the antimatter to destroy the asteroid. Thanks for sharing your concern.

Kimmo,

Certainly anti-matter is a topic of curiosity regarding the source of energy for space travel because of its potential. There is the curiosity of why we are left with matter after the big bang rather than anti-matter. Its occurrence and its use seems like something natural to study. It is natural in the process of fusion and supernovas, the source of GRBs.

Anti-matter obviously has the potential for destruction when coupled with matter but presenting it like a boogeyman doesn't seem to help the process of discovery.

With our lack of understanding of it, it is difficult to know how to feel.

Thanks for an interesting read.

Hi Jim,

My bet is on claim that every particle is its own antiparticle. I won't go into details in this thread, but you can read more from here.

James Lee Hoover replied on May. 14, 2014 @ 21:05 GMT
Kimmo,

Are you saying that a particle contains the potential of being either a particle or an anti-particle, the former being a natural state and the latter coming from a high-energy state? Radioactive decay produces positrons. Is this due to high energy? I'm certainly no expert.

James,

In normal conditions, particles rarely trigger annihilation event, therefore contemporary particle physics regards particles as the natural state for them. However, if we put two, for example, protons together as described in my Antimatter paper, proton annihilation will occur (prediction of ToEbi).

It's also possible to generate particle annihilation events with high energy, as generated with particle accelerators. Also radioactive decay produces high energy particles which are capable of trigger annihilation events.

Kimmo,

I absolutely agree we should save ourselves from our own stupidity and that antimatter seems to need treating with the utmost caution. But which antiparticles? Do we have any idea? or is it suck-it-and-see, so when we're destroyed we can say; "Aha that was the little blighter! dammit..."

I also agree that at least fermions propagate in particle/anti-particle pairs. Are positrons then dangerous? We've found them often and haven't had problems. In my favourite models (and papers) they propagate en-masse and most quickly annihilate (as opposing vortices) across the Debye length ('charge cancellation').

However (Discrete Field Model) a few join up tip to tip, closing to creating the toroid EM field - and there goes the neighbourhood as all sorts of things get bound up and 'matter' litters everywhere! So we may nor be here without antimatter! But is there really another type which can annihilate protons etc en masse?

I'm not a fan of suck-it and-see. Curiosity killed Schrodingers budgerigar! Great essay, we need a few warning shots to wake us up. Binary rating time I think. I note you also reject action at a distance. Great! You'll love my essay, I hope (I need the points) Classical proof that it's not required, and understandable! (by most).

Well done, and best of luck.

Peter

Most dangerous particle annihilations involve protons and neutrons, because their annihilation products have enough potential to trigger the chain reaction. That chain reaction needs also great amount of simultaneous annihilations and certain geometry.

So playing around in contemporary ways with particle annihilations most certainly possess no risk. But with certain technique you can create antimatter bomb or, in the worst case, create a setup which triggers that ultimate chain reaction. You can read more from my blog. Also check out the blog post concerning the geometry.

Warning shots are indeed fired! Unfortunately, nobody seems to believe me, isn't that ironic? :-) Nowadays, I'll try to enjoy my life as much as possible, just in case ;-)

I'll read your essay for sure! (in day or two)
