Essay Abstract

Based on the statements of Robert B. Laughlin, Albert Einstein, Louis de Broglie, Paul Anderson Dirac, and the logical reasoning presented in the previous article, titled “On the nature of Consciousness, Space and the Ultimate-Reality” (Journal of Consciousness Explorations and Research, Nov. 2013, Vol.4, Issue 9), ‘space’ is not an ‘empty’ ‘void extension of nothingness’; rather, there exists an ultimately real entity (UR), which is all-pervading in space and ever-present in time. This Ultimate-Reality can be visualized as ‘Mutually-Balanced Electrostatic-Field’. It is discussed here that ‘matter’ is just a ‘process’ or a ‘phenomenon’ of ‘fluctuations’ spontaneously generated in the ultimate reality. Then it is logically derived that only spherical patterns of fluctuations are sustained for longer durations, so there are integer number of spherical fluctuation-patterns, which we perceive as the ‘fundamental particles’ of ‘matter’. Then a mathematical-derivation is presented which supports the logic, that a ‘particle’ of ‘matter’ is ‘a localized spherical standing-wave’. This attempt leads to: (i) a new insight into the ‘wave-particle-duality’ of all ‘fundamental-particles’; (ii) to a new understanding that the currently considered ‘quantum-mechanical-waves’ are ‘envelop-variations’ or ‘modulations’ of the actual more-fundamental-waves, considered here. This understanding, of true nature of ‘particles’, leads us to ‘wave-theoretical-understanding’ of ‘gravity’; and an explanation for the observed ‘relative-strengths’ of ‘gravitational’ and ‘electric’ forces.

Dear Mr. Hasmukh,

Although I did not understand a word of your highly enigmatic essay, I do hope that it does well in the competition.

As I have gone to great lengths to prove in my essay, REALITY, ONCE, everything real and imagined in the real Universe is unique, once. The reason your essay seems so peculiar to me is because it is larded with computer generated graphics of identical designs. It is filled with unrealistic identical equations. Reality is simple sir. It is not populated by complex energy wave sensing mega-machines. A common cockroach must know more about natural reality than any man can know about any abstract version of abstract “ultimate reality.”

Joe, you name yourself a realist, but do you know what that means ?

Each reality is created by your consciousness and already history once you think about it.

matter does not matter it si amm Field.

but the way you are adressing other ways of thinking does not witness of a wide way of thinking or acceptance of other views, you are stuck in your own reality, like a lot of people, try to open your mind and see that your horizon is also an evading one when you try to approach it...

Dear Joe,

In the simplest possible words, this universe is a play of waves, spontaneously arisen in the Ultimate Reality; which is not only real, but also aware of its own existence; and sponanously joyful by its very nature. The waves and ripples are subjectively perceived by the Ultimate Reality as its thoughts and imaginations or dreams. Such thought and imaginations temporarily veil its true nature. There are many different techniques to realize the truth; simplest one is to simultanously see both inside and out-side; by looking at the tip of your nose. Of course one must be relatively healthy and free from anxities arising from un-lawful activities, before starting such a practice.

Dear Joe,

It seems, you wanted an answer to the question:"How humanity should steer the future?"

My essay deals with only one aspect of solution, namely, humanity can steer the future by increasing knowledge. We should keep increasing our knowledge and understanding of the universe.

Second thing is to maintain friendly relationship with every nation and religion. We should derive good points from every religion, and all the nations should acknowledge them and include them in their actions.

Third thing is all the nations should contribute their effoerts towards reduction of polution. Exhausts from vehicles may not be completely avoidable; but we can at lest stop the practice of disposing garbage by burning.

Fourthly, in addition to inventing new and new methods of producing clean energy, that is, producing energy with a minimum polution; we should also adopt every method of saving energy. I had deviced some methods as described in:

https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsd

Hope, you will find these answers somewhat satisfactory.

Sincerely,

Hasmukh K. Tank

Dear Hasmukh,

It is a pleasure to meet you here, we have published in the same journal of dr Huping Hu. We also have the same insights, I enjoyed very much your essay, hope you will read mine .

About the ratings : I intend to rate you in course with my post here, but as for now there are some "realists" that are giving "us" only the lowest score possible, so I wait like John Merryman to give you a score. Ans above that it is the mental rating that is important.

Best regards

Wilhelmus

dear Hasmukh,

I have only one public rating which is the a 1, the lowest possible.

Of course if that is your opinion I will accept that, but that does not mean that I understand it....

In Total Simultaneity and Absolute reality there are different point of view.

Dear Mr. Tank:

Your UR seems very close to my plenum.

The paper photon diffration of light presents a way for a photon to produce interference patterns. As Newton speculated in Optiks, the photon induces a wave in the UR, plenum, gravitational ether which then influences the path ofohotons. Sounds like General relative warping space. I discuss the correspondenct in STOE correspondence to general relativity and quantum mechanics. This idea has a long way to go.

Thanks for noting my essay. I have seen your papers before is vixra.

Dear Mr Hasmukh,

I agree with you that the space is not a void but full of something essential in space and time. Only thing is that we are taking time in appreciating it with our material existence. The consciousness of our may come forward to help us in this provided we allow it to do so.

Hasmukh,

Quite brilliant. I agree you analysis and it's importance almost to the word. I'm aware that co-incidence of findings isn't the best reason to award a top score but your presentation and it's validity for fundamental advancement also justifies it. You start very much as my essay 2 years ago started; (Complete version here). Specifying the ISM/IGM.

Dear Mr Tank,

A fine essay, well argued and I find your suggestions agreeable. I think it a shame you seem not to want to discuss. None the less good marks.

Hi Hasmukh,

I (how should I say) resonate with your essay. Please take a look at my website www.digitalwavetheory.com I think you will like the approach.

Gravity as standing waves, you have my agreement.

deBroglie was amazing and not given his due respect.

Your essay should be rated higher,

Don Limuti

Dear Hasmukh Tank

It is a essay with the most useful information for me. Although I am not sure, how your theory is correct, your De-Broglie’s matter wave, described with Doppler effect, is brilliant. If a physical formula is so simple, it should have some physical interpretation. I am only surprised that this formula is not mentioned more frequently. I think that your approach is someone connected with this paper, which is also connected with de Broglie equation.

Otherwise, time will show how it is with your theory.

My essay

Best regards
