Hi Popov,

I read your essay and went through some of your articles and found them very interesting. I am interested in genetics. however never had the time to delve.

Anyway, I was trying to figure out why you thought your subject is relevant which on the surface seems remotely so. But when you started talking about Riemann Hypothesis it occurred to me that my idea(which I think is the fundamental theory!) had some similarity to so called Cantor set(as interaction removes points in my theory). And this Cantor set was also involved in some attempts to solve the RH . Also, in mainstream physics you have the indispensable symmetry breaking mechanism. But also In my theory I also see the effect of slight symmetry breaking.

What I am saying that my be your essay is not as irrelevant as it first appears.

Anyway here is my essay in case you are interested. Thanks

Michael,

Excellent job. Important and fundamental. I like your 'homochirality' analysis, agree about all and that we have commonality, may be more than you've seen. I've published a cyclic model of galaxy and cosmological evolution including catastrophies and chiral re-ionizations, which matches wide observations far better than past and other models. I'm sure you're going to find it interesting & helpful. HJ-36 No6.Cyclic Evolution paper.

I also agree there's something fundamental missed about maths and have found a truth applicable well beyond just maths, including to logic, relativity etc. It's a shame you didn't enter the essy contest on maths a few years ago. The model was well received, but then of course ignored!; it needs developing. Wigners statement essay fqXi. Top community score; The Red/Green sock trick It also implies a new 'Law of the reducing middle' to replace 'excluded' middles which also links it to QM/Bayesian probabilities. Nature isn't 'binary' except for opposite helicities (see also earlier essays on that).

Do also see Declan Traill's and Gordon Watson's essays, and this important paper referred in Gordons; Fröhner, F. H. (1998)Missing link between probability theory and quantum mechanics I hope you may be able to help. That paper was only missing the one extra pair of momenta I've now discovered. Can we now derive the tricky Hamiltonian?

Great job, top marks, and look forward to further discussion.

Very best

Peter

Hi Michael,

You have highlighted a fundamental phenomena that physics in general has "chosen" to overlook. The mathematics you bring forth is fascinating and so is the concept of catastrophe.

The concept of catastrophe resonates with my own work. Do take a look at my essay which outlines the concept of an ether that is fixed to the observer.

Combine this with a big bang "catastrophe" and you have the possibility of chirality. See (http://www.digitalwavetheory.com/33_AntiParticles_-_Chirali
ty.html)

I do not claim to have nailed it. But perhaps this may be of use to you.

Thanks for your essay,

Don Limuti

Dear Michael

If you are looking for another essay to read and rate in the final days of the contest, will you consider mine please? I read all essays from those who comment on my page, and if I cant rate an essay highly, then I don’t rate them at all. Infact I haven’t issued a rating lower that ten. So you have nothing to lose by having me read your essay, and everything to...

Dear Michael A.,

I think that the fundamental must be simple, clear and to save our thinking.

Mathematics physics complicates his abstract forms, which require it to abandon the basis on which there is a specific mindset. According to the principle of identity of space and matter Descartes, matter is space and space is matter that moves. Time is a synonym for universal movement. Thus, space is the Foundation for fundamental theories.

You may like to look at the sky and it seems to you empty infinite space in which it moves large and small body. However, this impression is deceptive. According to the principle of identity of space and matter Descartes, space is matter that moves. When Copernicus asserted that the Earth revolves around the Sun, it had, according to Descartes, to add that along with the Earth revolves around the Sun, all the solar space. Space is what built the world. Space contains information about the development of the Universe . Take a look at my essay in which I showed how radically can change physics, if it will follow this principle. Leave your autograph. FQXi Fundamental in New Cartesian Physics by Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich

Do not allow New Cartesian Physics go away into nothingness, which can to be the theory of everything OO.

Sincerely, Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich.
