Уважаемый DURGA DAS DATTA, я обычно высоко оцениваю эссе, в котором говорится об эфире, так как это близко к моей теме о неокартезианском обобщении современной физики. Вы пытаетесь ввести в физику новое понятие " gravitoetherton superfluid is our expanding space swirling» чтобы войти в a new physics with many revolutionary ideas. Я желаю вам успехов на этом пути. Надеюсь, что вам помогут мои идеи, изложенные в моём эссе «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» .

С уважением, Борис Джечко.

There are a few points of agreement...

I see your work as an argument for a theory of the superfluid vacuum. I imagine you enjoyed reading the work of Volovik and Sudarshan, who were indeed very smart people and deserving of more attention than they got. In point of fact; someone else got a Nobel prize for what was essentially Sudarshan's work in Optics. I at least have cited his work in a few instances, because I see it has value for my research, and think that I should rightly be giving credit to others who have had similar ideas before.

I will return to this later, because I would like to know where you got your ideas from and where you hope to go with them. I will mention now that in my own essay; I have talked about the metaphor of Bose-Einstein condensation as an analogy for gravitation, or black hole horizons. That idea, at least, is consistent with what you are talking about. There are quite a few researchers taking this idea seriously, by this point.

All the Best,

Jonathan

I agree to many of your points.

There is no empty space and space was abolished only due to the fact that it was not understood.

Gravity particles moving in all directions explained gravity 300 years ago.

Absolute time and space are needed, and the illusion of time dilation is in reality a CLOCK dilation.

Determinism can also be possible but create the illusion of chaos at the higher observable level due to hidden variables.

The introduction of c as a speed limit is only due toa a singularity in a WRONG theory.

However, in my opinion Michelson Morley's tests are useless and GPS tells a different story by indicating 1-way light speed.

With best regards from ______________ John-Erik

Dear Durga,

Nice essay. I don't agree that there is God, however.

Would you care to read my essay? It makes a prediction regarding dark matter, and I'd like your opinion.

Dear DURGA DAS DATTA,

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

Durgadas,

You well identify many of the inconsistent interpretations in physics and cosmology, including the concept of time dilation, when Doppler effects on emitted wavelength can explain effects on transitions between co-moving systems. The present apparently changing the past should clearly tell us our assumptions are wrong. The expanding universe and even accelerating expansion is another naive assumption confounding coherent cosmology. Then finally QM shows our physics is belief led despite beliefs to the contrary.

I hope you may look at my essay suggesting consistent rationales for these effects from better foundations.

best wishes.

Peter
