Essay Abstract

In this essay we, based on the real physicist experience in nuclear physics research, present the evident influence of the second reality on the work of physicist.

Author Bio

Bio. I am Emeritus Professor , Warsaw University, Warsaw , Poland. At the beginning my work in physics I was engaged in the study of high energy nuclear reactions, next relativistic heavy ion reactions ( JINR- Dubna, PSI Villigen and CERN) and ultra- high intensity laser induced phenomena. In those fields I published above 200 papers and 6 monographs in USA and Germany. Recently I started the investigations of the physics of human brain and cancer. All my papers ( published) and scientific projects I am involved can be find out on Research Gate

Indeed, serendipity is almost magic:-) Whether it be an apple on Isaac Newton's head or the wind turning the pages of one of your textbooks, sometimes it seems that the universe will help us to understand it. Perhaps the universe wants to be understood?

Dear Professor Kozlowski,

One real Universe must have only one reality. As I have thoughtfully pointed out in my brilliant essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY, the real Universe consists only of one unified visible infinite surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light. Reality am not a complicated.

If we introduce Infinity then the structure of All is a rather complicated , is not?

You are welcome, Professor, doctor sir,...I liked your papper.

It is a good work.Well about me don't say dr ,I am a simple nursery man for plants .A simple little belgian nursery man.So like I am Young 41 years old,so tell hello steve.The simplicity always professor doctor.

But well we are not here to speak about psychology but about objective sciences.Like you have worked on relevant experiments about this stanbdard model and our nuclear forces apprently,so you encircle well this standard model in logic, you encircle the steps of encodings due to evolution.And so you understand that quarks gluons are the strongest forces of our standard model.You encircle so doctor that this electyromagnetic with photons are the weakest forces of our standard model.But well ok let'"s go more far now and let's analyse this quantum gravitation, this weakest quant force tending to infinity.So like you know persons at cern or this or that like you make experiments impiortant for humanisty apparently, so you can say me what are the expermiments to find this weakest quant force, My question is this one, do you consider this quantum gravity like an emergent electromagnetic force ? do you consider that this gravitation at this quantum scale is bosonic photonic if I can say to make simple? if yes explain me why ? I am always happy to learn new things.So from experts and professors doctors so you shall understand that I wait an answer relevant from you.

Steve nursery man, human on earth :)

Best Professor doctor , happy to have persons so skiliings on this contest,thanks for that.

Lovely essay to read, and I think with some important advancement to science (as my own!) but are most of academia and editors currently out wandering lost somewhere in the past?

I'm no nuclear physicist but am excited by your finding; "We discovered new type of light excited nuclei with excited alpha particle inside. This nuclei are unstable, with emission of p and t Will this be published? or is it too new to pass the gatekeepers (armed guards!) of theory.

How familiar are you with plasma?/Ions?/condensation of Fermion pairs? Do you agree the pairs may be identical just with opposite orientations? as with 'split' pairs in QM?

I do hope you may take a rigorous look at the simple momenta pair identified in my essay and confirm my derivation of the orthogonal cos2 curves of QM. established physicist run screaming rather than look and bury their heads in the sand or even a dung pile!

I'd also like to talk and think more about the 8-9Mev continuum energy recognised in nuclear physics. I think I referred to something similar in terms of the 'condensate', conceptually equivalent to Paul Dirac's 'new ether'. How 'recognised' is it and what is the interpretation. Any good links?

If I had to write an essay in any foreign language it would be gobbledegook! Very well written but languishing too low so worth a top mark.

Best wishes

Dear Peter.

Your letter was as glass of Armagnac( 10 y old). Paper with excited alpha particles inside nuclei was published in 1981 in Lettere al Nuovo Cimento. In my opinion we in that time found new type nuclei. These nuclei are precursor of hot spot nuclei - hot spot is excited alpha particle. In very old Times . two polish physicist Danysz and Pniewski discovered hyperfragments nuclei with lambda hyperon ( excited nucleon) in place nucleon. We find alpha excited in place of four nucleons).. I think both phenomena were important steps in developing nuclear physivc


PS Peter I invited tou to my project on ResearchGate entitled Radiant Consciousness

Dear Miroslaw Koslowski

I invite you and every physicist to read my work “TIME ORIGIN,DEFINITION AND EMPIRICAL MEANING FOR PHYSICISTS, Héctor Daniel Gianni ,I’m not a physicist.

How people interested in “Time” could feel about related things to the subject.

1) Intellectuals interested in Time issues usually have a nice and creative wander for the unknown.

2) They usually enjoy this wander of their searches around it.

3) For millenniums this wander has been shared by a lot of creative people around the world.

4) What if suddenly, something considered quasi impossible to be found or discovered such as “Time” definition and experimental meaning confronts them?

5) Their reaction would be like, something unbelievable,… a kind of disappointment, probably interpreted as a loss of wander…..

6) ….worst than that, if we say that what was found or discovered wasn’t a viable theory, but a proved fact.

7) Then it would become offensive to be part of the millenary problem solution, instead of being a reason for happiness and satisfaction.

8) The reader approach to the news would be paradoxically adverse.

9) Instead, I think it should be a nice welcome to discovery, to be received with opened arms and considered to be read with full attention.

11)Time “existence” is exclusive as a “measuring system”, its physical existence can’t be proved by science, as the “time system” is. Experimentally “time” is “movement”, we can prove that, showing that with clocks we measure “constant and uniform” movement and not “the so called Time”.

12)The original “time manuscript” has 23 pages, my manuscript in this contest has only 9 pages.

I share this brief with people interested in “time” and with physicists who have been in sore need of this issue for the last 50 or 60 years.

I inform all the participants that use the electronic translator, therefore, my essay is written badly. I participate in the contest to familiarize English-speaking scientists with New Cartesian Physic, the basis of which the principle of identity of space and matter. Combining space and matter into a single essence, the New Cartesian Physic is able to integrate modern physics into a single theory. Let FQXi will be the starting point of this Association.

Don't let the New Cartesian Physic disappear! Do not ask for himself, but for Descartes.

New Cartesian Physic has great potential in understanding the world. To show potential in this essay I risked give "The way of The materialist explanation of the paranormal and the supernatural" - Is the name of my essay.

Visit my essay and you will find something in it about New Cartesian Physic. After you give a post in my topic, I shall do the same.
