Essay Abstract

Every visible physicist who has ever lived has only ever been able to prove that only one real visible physical condition has ever existed. It is an irrefutable fact that all real matter has always had a real visible surface. There has never been a physical duality consisting of finite visible matter swirling round in invisible space. There have never been three finite length, width and depth spatial dimensions. Obviously, Nature must have permanently provided this singular visible reality, which preceded visible humans’ appearances on visible Earth and will continue to exist forever after visible humans’ and the visible Earth’s extinction. The problem with science is that it is totally reliant on its visible adherent’s capability for making supposedly finite assumptions about an imaginary Universe. They even try to make supposedly finite assumptions about each other’s supposedly finite assumptions. It is my hope that after reading my essay, you will see visible reality as I see it.

Dear Fellow Essayists,

I suspect I got on your last nerves during the last contest by continually posting comments about my essay on your essays. I apologize for having done so. I promise that this will be the only comment I will leave during this essay contest.

Sincerely

Joe Fisher

Joe, good that you have chosen to act differently this time around. I have read your essay. You start off explaining your views well and in places are rather eloquent. Then you change your presentation to give the results of numerous google searches. That does not work as well as the introduction, in my opinion. It seems to me to say more about the search engine than the foundational reality. Well done though for producing an essay FQXi has considered a valid entry. You already know from blog comments why I don't see things your way. Regards G.

Dear Joe Fisher, I have long understood your concept and I would give you a prize, but I don’t have it. As always I can give a high mark, it’s a pity that it will not help you either. Here, all such well-read, everyone knows so many smart words and shuffle them like cards. Only you stand firmly as Giordano Bruno, claiming that matter has one visible plane. I also affirm, like you, that there is no space, but only matter, which forms our space. There is no matter, then there is no space. And further, space moves, as it is matter. Vortices of space form the world to which we belong.

Regards, Boris Dzhechko.

I invite you to discuss some aspects of the neo-Cartesian generalization of modern physics, which I set out in my essay: “The transformation of uncertainty into certainty. The relationship of the Lorentz factor with the probability density of states. And more from a new Cartesian generalization of modern physics. by Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich »

In the abstract of your essay, you mention "the visible Earth's extinction" and in the essay's first section after the intro, you start a question with “Is there a theoretical — and preferably mathematical — framework …" In the spirit of other peoples' essays inspiring thoughts in me and my essay inspiring thoughts in others, I'd like to comment on those two things in your essay.

Hi Jo,

Inspiringly 'different' again, well done. Nice relief from Doctrinal 'same old'. My particular commendations for; "..infinite number of supposedly finite numbers".

also; "Time is simply an invisible idea." ..and;

Natures one visible reality. "It is infinite in shape and size and duration".

Though infinite in 'shape' did get me thinking!

Good not 'trolling' on other essays, but I'd hope you may read and comment on a few of them. I'm pretty sure you'd love mine as you're not too 'doctrinated'!

Best

Peter

Hi Joe,

You posted on mine that you'd replied there earlier and I hadn't noticed, but I had. and did reply to that post! A bit strange, including your comment NOT to read your revised version!? I have it on my list to re-read, though after other first reads, and haven't scored it yet due to that, but do explain.

Joe,

You posted you've 'had enough' But I feel you should modify and upgrade your explanatory methods rather than give up. I agree; "Not one physicist has ever proven that any empty space has ever existed. It has not. So Einstein’s silly musings about invisible curved space/time have nothing to do with reality." But such claims need sound sounding sounds (lol) to overcome cognitive dissonance and convince people to change their views. Most won't even understand you conception or it's implications so rejection is automatic.

Dear Joe Fisher, I already wrote that I began to see things in your opinion. However, the question immediately arose - what next? This is probably the most important thing in your essay - and then what? It is for this question that I give the highest rating and wish you to successfully overcome your visible surface and enter the road leading to success.

Dear Joe Fisher,

I submitted an essay in the last competition but I wasn't aware of your trolling but then again I tend to dip in just briefly. I've been trolled on other sites though and I can definitely say it's not a nice experience to be on the receiving end of it.

Still, its important that you have moved on from that attitude, it's not fair on other contributers and you've...

Dear Mozibur Ullah,

What a wonderful comment you have posted here. I hope many will read it.

I too have seen a Universe devoid of space and time, but glowing in a myriad of relationships between the various forms of energy. I am happy to be a 'relationship entity' in such a Universe, and that I feel that, in some way, it has been made comprehensible to me.

thanks Joe,simple but self explanatory.. the searches come in handy.can all science be a production of human bias like the finite search listings in an infinite web. kindly read and rate here in my essay https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3525

some irony in the tone, still if i replace the word visible with spatial or detectable , the essay still make sense. "visible" has an advantage of offering the possibilities of jumping from some area to other area . regarding the theme i have mentioned in my essay about this whole unity thing with some examples i have not gone in to many detalies what i think is a good unfiying thing , whats make good aggregation, of things , also for the search engine i thing there could be used graphs beside words (already search has search by image)

Dear Joe,

Glad to read your work again.

I greatly appreciated your work and discussion. I am very glad that you are not thinking in abstract patterns.

While the discussion lasted, I wrote an article: “Practical guidance on calculating resonant frequencies at four levels of diagnosis and inactivation of COVID-19 coronavirus”, due to the high relevance of this topic. The work is based on the practical solution of problems in quantum mechanics, presented in the essay FQXi 2019-2020 “Universal quantum laws of the universe to solve the problems of unsolvability, computability and unpredictability”.

I hope that my modest results of work will provide you with information for thought.

Warm Regards, `

Vladimir
