Essay Abstract

Mathematical Structure Hypothesis(MSH)states that "Mathematical structures have no independent existence without physical reality. Everything in Universe including mathematical structures and physical reality is Vibration." As long as causation is experienced,mathematics needs to evolve in the dimension of time and reference frame like physics.It extends new path for...

Brief explanation of what is Vibration that unifies Mind with External World based on MSH.

"That which we call matter and mind are one and the same substance. The only difference is in the degree of vibration. Mind at a very low rate of vibration is what is known as matter. Matter at a high rate of vibration is what is known as mind. Both are the same substance; and therefore, as matter is bound by time and space and causation, mind which is matter at a high rate of vibration is bound by the same law.... Mind becomes matter, and matter in its turn becomes mind, it is simply a question of vibration."

Dear Pankaj Mani,

This is my single unified theorem of how the real Universe is occurring: Newton was wrong about abstract gravity; Einstein was wrong about abstract space/time, and Hawking was wrong about the explosive capability of abstract NOTHING. Proof exists that every real...

Dear Pankaj,

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.

Dear Joe,

I have read many essays here on the site but not found the complete satisfactory answer to the deep connection between mathematics and physics,though different authors have tried to make significant effort by explaining different aspects.

I don't think unless we discover profound topics like mind,matter,consciousness of which our universe is made up of, we can genuinely understand physics & mathematics connection.

Anyway,I will give fair reading to your essay, You are most welcome to answer the objections that I may put.

Thanks,

Pankaj

Dear Joe,

I went through you essay and would like to keep some points in favor and rest against.

As you mentioned " Although the real substance of the real Universe appears to us as seeming to consist of varying amounts of solid, liquid and gaseous properties, it must be re-emphasized here that all appearances are deceptive. The real Universe is not apparent and this is why it is not...

Dear Pankaj,

Thank you for leaving a comment about my essay.

The Universe is real. You have a real surface, so you are real. Please start thinking for yourself. Professor Hans Peter Durr was completely wrong for thinking that “Modern quantum physics could reveal that (abstract) matter was not (abstractly) composed of (abstract) matter, but (abstract) reality was merely potentiality.” This is codswallop.

Dear Joe,

Can you please define what do you mean by the word "real"?

For me" Imaginary" is more real than "Real".

Dear Pankaj,

I was astonished to find such an excellent and perceptive essay at the bottom of the list. It's one of the few where I not only agree every word but agree all are valid and important. I'm largely at a loss to understand why but will try.

Your command of English is acceptable if imperfect, and presentation quirky and offputting. Mostly I've learned myself that anyone putting forward some specific 'theory' or hypothesis (not just here but in general) will normally engender complete apathy and a priori rejection, normally without even being read. It's a symptom of an internet flooded with far too many such theories to ever read (mostly flawed).

My own 2010 essay described a 'discrete field' hypothesis, consistent with yours and self evident, and did averagely. Follow up essays put that model into the background, just presented the valid aspects, and were all finalists (though still overlooked in the judging). Perhaps a good lesson there.

Anyway, brilliant essay and top mark coming. I do hope you'll read and score mine as it's developed from all the same philosophies and I think you're certain to understand and agree it.

Well done, (and I entirely agree and embrace your stated 'hypothesis').

Peter

PS, After the imminent close of scoring you may also like to see this new short (but VERY dense!) video on other aspects consistent with many parts of your analysis.

VIDEO Time Dependent Redshift...etc etc!

Dear Peter,

Thank you for your assertive comment which consists of these specific sentences

"Mostly I've learned myself that anyone putting forward some specific 'theory' or hypothesis (not just here but in general) will normally engender complete apathy and a priori rejection, normally without even being read. It's a symptom of an internet flooded with far too many such theories to ever read (mostly flawed)."

I will definitely read and score your essay very carefully.I will also watch the video you have mentioned.

Dear Pankaj :

Your essay is on the right track, because the vibrations are the basis of everything. I prefer to call it oscillation. The Bi-iterative model is based on the idea that, in addition to quantum mechanics and general relativity. There is another element as a source. "The iterative unit" or "Iterative Mechanics" .because we should justify from where this polarization, rhythm, time comes...

Dear Peter,

I greatly enjoyed your essay. Its thought provoking and wonderful.This is one of the most relevant essays I found here on this site.

The reasons are obvious.

As you have mentioned

Dear Bannouri,

Thank you for your assertive comment. Its indeed Vibration the basis of everything including both mathematics & physics.

It's only vibration which is the key to the deep mystery behind Matter & Mind (Consciousness) of which our Universe is made up of.

Thanks,

Pankaj
