Can Time Be Saved From Physics?
Philosophers, physicists and neuroscientists discuss how our sense of time’s flow might arise through our interactions with external stimuli—despite suggestions from Einstein's relativity that our perception of the passage of time is an illusion.

Thermo-Demonics
A devilish new framework of thermodynamics that focuses on how we observe information could help illuminate our understanding of probability and rewrite quantum theory.

Essay Abstract

The search for a singular fundamental is an ever pressing need for Human mind. In spite of huge accumulation of knowledge, it has eluded and the reality appears to be multilayered .This essay attempts to look through these layers and reach a point , that is nearest to being Fundamental.

Author Bio

Author is a Practising Psychiatrist and has interest in Physics especially quantum physics. His present interest and area of work is the 'physics of brain' . 'How the brain creates mind' is a series of video lectures exploring the brain dynamics. He has authored a book (in process of editing) on how reality is created and has given a TED talk on same.

Hi Mr. Bajpai

It is interesting for me that you are the second psychiatrist who understands better reality than most physicists.

Other Stevan Bošnjak of whom took advantage of the concept of opposites.

I do agree:

From quantum to classical to general relativity, all processes exist together.

Physics seeks laws and fundamental constants e.g. Planck's, that are independent of the observer and maintain the dynamics of the Universe and the life within it.

These Laws and Constant would be the same for any observer from any Universe.

I do agree and I also have calculated relations in universe ussing Planck scale and opposites:

I would be grateful if you comment on the results obtained in my work.

Regards,

Branko

Hi Branko.

Thanks for your post.

Would be extremely keen to read your research.

You are right.

it will be interesting to see how the Planck's scale progresses to opposite scales.

it may be really a multiple scales of reality.

DR. Alok,

It was an interesting read. To me 'Fundamental'is akin to 'illusion' from the point humanity has so far succeeded in unraveling the mysteries of the Nature . I do agree that 'Fundamental' is multilayered concept. Search for 'Singular Fundamental' may not be successful in basic sciences and one may have to bank on Psychology / Philosophy.

Yes Brajeshji

In fact the reductionist approach often ignores this aspect of reality but no explanation will be complete without inducting it.

Nice observations Alokji,

“The continual creation of matter may link quantum with gravity.” ….. Elaborate on this some more please…

Dear Fellow Essayists

This will be my final plea for fair treatment.,

Reliable evidence exists that proves that the surface of the earth was formed millions of years before man and his utterly complex finite informational systems ever appeared on that surface. It logically follows that Nature must have permanently devised the only single physical construct of earth allowable.

All objects, be they solid, liquid, or vaporous have always had a visible surface. This is because the real Universe must consist only of one single unified VISIBLE infinite surface occurring eternally in one single infinite dimension that am always illuminated mostly by finite non-surface light.

Only the truth can set you free.

Dear Alok,

I highly appreciate your well-written essay in an effort to understand.

It is so close to me. «the entanglement is the interconnectedness». «These deserve to be called the fundamental(s) in a restricted sense but the nonlinearity and gravity at their own scales have their effects. A unifying fundamental thread, field or matter yet may be discovered till then it will be ‘fundamentals’. However probable the reality may seem, physics seeks laws and fundamental constants e.g. Planck’s, that are independent of observer and maintain the dynamics of Universe and life within it. These Laws and Constant would be the same for any observer from any Universe. These will be the FUNDAMENTALS beyond the abstraction of human mind».

I hope that my modest achievements can be information for reflection on your work on "brain physics".

Vladimir Fedorov

Hello Alok,

Your title effectively divides the participants in this essay contest into two camps.

You quickly come to the same conclusion that I have; that a singular, all-embracing fundamental is sought in the FQXi essay contest theme. Otherwise the theme would be framed What ARE Fundamental?

The popular notion of an expanding universe in the absence of any accounting for what is beyond requires to be redefined in order to reconcile the term ‘Uni’ with the concept of a single ‘Universe’ that is infinite. What many scientists refer to as the ‘Universe’ is simply the perceptible portion of the ‘universe of all there is’ that goes on forever.

The so-called Big Bang was merely the evolution of a small bubble in a universe of infinite dimensions in space and time.

Mathematic cannot be the ultimate fundamental for no better reason than is was developed by mankind for use to his advantage and does not account for anything in the universe before mankind.

With reference to gravity I suspect that science is going to come into general accord in recognition that gravity is not as fundamental as currently believed. It is an effect caused by the pressure of vacuum, the predominant constituent of the cosmos.

The only reality that facilitates all that is going on and without which nothing would be going on – is ‘Existence’, the ultimate Fundamental. Check it out. itsinmybook.com.

Thank for the ride Alok, and good luck way into the future.

Gary.

Even the journey to discover the multilayered rearlity is great.

Le Constant Power Tourbillon a développé un dispositif de tourbillon à puissance constante breveté. Il assure que le solde de la fréquence de vibration est absolument cohérent, ce qui peut garantir la précision absolue du temps de déplacement. Tout d'abord, l'échappement est découplé de la transmission de puissance directe du train, la puissance est temporairement stockée dans le spiral et délivrée à la roue d'échappement. Le spiral est tendu une fois par seconde et la seconde aiguille du tourbillon saute également en quelques secondes. replique montre Ce mécanisme garantit que le taux de déplacement d'au moins 48 heures est parfaitement équilibré et précis. Après environ 2 jours, le mode de puissance constante sera converti en mode normal. À ce stade, l'aiguille des secondes va sauter une fois toutes les cinq minutes. Les techniciens s'inspirent des voitures de course de Formule 1, utilisant du platine haut de gamme et des matériaux céramiques légers innovants pour créer ce grand boîtier de 46 mm. La lunette, la couronne et le pont de garde de la couronne, le bas du matériau de platine, tandis que la coquille et les cornes sont des céramiques de haute technologie, replique montre la série de cinq clous en titane, chacun avec une tête en céramique. L'apparence finale est très belle.
