Essay Abstract

To think about mysterious connection between physics and mathematics we need first to understand what mathematics is and what physics is. I see mathematics as a reflection of universal hidden order (in the meaning proposed by David Bohm) in the human rational mind. Physics is the model of the universe created by the human rational mind. The subject of this essay is how to use realize Einstein vision on completeness theorem according to which each element of the physical universe corresponds exactly to the one element of the model. To realize this vision of we apply bijective function of set theory. We build a model the universe in which each mathematical element represents exactly one element of the physical universe.

The Noether Theorem regarding the basis for conservation laws is a pretty good example of there at least being a correspondence between mathematical law and physical law.

I am interested in what you say about "Einstein's Completeness Theorem" Where did you find Einstein’s definition of completeness of a physical theory? Was this something he wrote about specifically or is it your interpretation of his methods?

Amrit Sorli's effort to validate "Einstein vision on completeness theorem according to which each element of the physical universe corresponds exactly to the one element of the model" using bijective function of set theory is important. It would have implications for the foundations of quantum theory and may provide explanations for entanglement and similar phenomenon. Let's see where he goes with this.

Looking forward to additional comments on these important ideas.

Hi Amrit,

You argue, as I understand it, to replace time by "change sequence" or numerical order of changes which run in space. Time then has only mathematical existence instead of physical reality. But then on page 2 you introduce Planck time and duration as emergent time. I'm confused at this point and wonder if you could clarify this point for me here.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my essay, and thanks for contributing your own thoughts.

Best regards,

Edwin Eugene Klingman

Hi Edvin,

Fundamental time is numerical order of change. When we measure this numerical order with clocks we get emergent time which is duration. Duration is a sum of numerical order. Without measurement of the observer there is no duration. See our article published in Foundations of Physics: Perspectives of the Numerical Order of Material Changes in Timeless Approaches in Physics

Dear Amrit Srecko Sorli:

First of all, I admire the effort that goes into making a submission. That applies to your article. I liked the idea of a bijective relationship between elements of a physical theory and a mathematical theory because it seems like a fresh take. Is there not a difficulty in this approach though: how does one determine what an element is, whether for physics or math? Is there an explanation of what energy is, or how it arises, sufficient for us to consider it as an element? You can see the effects of electromagnetic energy, but do you see the energy directly? I suspect that counting relates to some deep aspect of the structure of the universe, which is why we see it in so many contexts and your emphasis of counting in the introduction seems right. On your conclusion “out of pure mathematical laws we cannot deduce physical laws” would the prediction of the positron based on Dirac’s math be a counterexample?

Dear Bob,

with mathematics is all fine. It is perfect.

Just in physics we have to apply it in a proper way.

This is the outcome of bijective epistemology.

Mass and gravity have origin in diminished energy density of quantum vacuum. Higgs boson is a momentary flux of energy of quntum vacuum, not mmore. Has no real impact on particles mass. The whole theory of Higgs is simply not right. It has no bijective correspondence with physical reality.

Amrit,

Thank you for contributing your views on this topic. I do however believe we do not gain any insights into a greater understanding of reality by rejecting one model in replace of another. The fundamental idea in question is our ability to define an event or observation (using whatever model) and to predict future occurrences in an effort to validate our understandings of this physical interpretation or description of nature.

Fortunately we have gained many pieces to this very complicated puzzle, now we must arrange these pieces into a coherent manner that effectively defines reality. This is the current state in physics. Its not that the concept of using physics is wrong neither is the method you advocate. I believe they are both useful and will arrive at similar conclusions even if they are stated in different languages.

You propose an excellent argument, suggesting the physics we are currently using is not a correct interpretation of mathematical laws. Perhaps we will uncover this complete idea soon.

Best Regards,

D.C.Adams

Hi Adams, bijective epistemology goal is improving existent physics and see which elements are nonexistent. Physics is a strong building, we just have to adjust few elements. For exampla existent model of mass and gravity is not right. Our proposal model is respecting bijective function, see files attached. yours Amrit

Dear Dr. Amrit Sorli,

I appreciate your approach to understand gravitation in terms of vacuum energy; and wish to draw your attention to one thing, that Planck Mass is a theoretically-derived quantity, obtained by equating G m m = h c . And Planck-length is a geometric-mean of Gravitational-radius and Compton-Wavelength of every particle. That is, Planck-Length is a geometric-mean of two different physical lengths, and so, not a fundamental-length. More details are described in:

"An Insight into Planck's Units"

www.ptep-online.com/index_files/2011/PP-27-04.PDF

Hope,
you will find it important for your further research.

You may have already read my previous year's essay:

"On the Emergence of Physical-World from the Ultimate-Reality"

fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2001

which was based on a postulate that empty-space is not really empty. Hope, reading of this essay may trigger some useful ideas in your mind.

My latest paper submitted to journal is also based on the fact that photon's energy produces gravitational-field of negative potential-energy; and cosmological red-shift is a process of "filling" that gravitational potential-well from the positive energy of the photon. I wellcome your comments at my e-mail address: tank.hasmukh@rediffmail.com, hasmukh.tank1@gmail.com

Wishing you grand success in your research,

Yours sincerely,

Dear Dr. Tank

I read your paper in Progress of Physics. Original work on the subject of Planck units. For me Max Planck was equal to Albert Einstein. We are now getting together their results. Energy density of quantum vacuum is future of physics. Explaining mass of elementary particles is pure failor, which will be recognized soon by entire scientific community.

Amrit Sorli,

Nice work on your essay. I completely agree that “Time has only a mathematical existence, past, present and future are only a mathematical realities” and “Time travels are out of question, one can travel in space only and time is duration of its motion”. I think I have a good model, which I posted at http://vixra.org/abs/1402.0045 called the space-time-motion model, which you may appreciate if you get a chance to read it.

Most of these essays are very thought provoking but some are hard to read. I went a different route and wrote what I consider a more entertaining twist - sort of a blend of Knights of the Round Table and Lord of the Rings (See Doctors of the Ring - The Power of Merlin the Mathematician to Transform Chaos into Consciousness). It is based on my space-time-motion model, which I invite you to read and let me know what you think (email to stjohntheodore@gmail.com). Of course, I also invite you to read and rate Doctors of the Ring if you get the chance.

Respectfully,

Ted St. John

Dear Mr. Sorli,

I thought that your engrossing essay was exceptionally well written and I do hope that it fares well in the competition.

I think Newton was wrong about abstract gravity; Einstein was wrong about abstract space/time, and Hawking was wrong about the explosive capability of NOTHING.

All I ask is that you give my essay WHY THE REAL UNIVERSE IS NOT MATHEMATICAL a fair reading and that you allow me to answer any objections you may leave in my comment box about it.
