Essay Abstract

How to draw a line to take a stand? We present a simple geometry showing how “not making a decision at the right moment” leads to the growth of undecidable uncomputability in the (inter)relations of objects and thus to predictable unpredictability on all levels of Life.

Dear Joseph Maria Hoebe, Graf is a good tool to follow the path of physics. You showed how “not making a decision at the right time” leads to an increase in insoluble unsolvability in the interrelations of objects and, therefore, to predictable unpredictability at all levels of life.

This is relevant to consider in relation to modern physics, which did not accept the identity of space and matter at the right time and is subsequently forced to be content with a probabilistic way of describing physical processes, which led to "predictable unpredictability at all levels of life."

I invite you to discuss my essay, in which I show the successes of the neocartesian generalization of modern physics, based on the identity of space and matter of Descartes: “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 ".

Thanks for reading and commenting.

In new Cartesian physics a corpuscle is a stationary vortex, in which the movement of space reaches the speed of light.

I like that.

The notion of Zero as a state of being.

If Zero, as state of Being, is like a seed, then the shape/form is already there. This can be extrapolated to everything.

A, as in my essay, is, if left...

Dear Dear Joseph Maria Hoebe

Hello and thanks for sharing this post.

Essentially, Graph theory as mentioned and used to make decisions in our nowadays lives, has many applications in New modern physics and quantum mechanics in order to better understand behavior of fundamental particles in universe and how they can interact with each other.

Recently, new scientists as i have done research, are using graphs for discussion about quantum behaviors.One of the most important reasons can be proof of theories that has been expressed and developed by Feynman, Dirac and Albert Einstein.

After proposing new ideas on Gravitons as supposed particles in mathematical descriptions of Physics Phenomena, its time to reconsider these developed ideas through Graph Theory and Complex systems.Although, I have worked with Creative Particle of Higgs theory with Professor Hossein Javadi and would like to see Quantum physics from this point of view too.

I am looking forward for your comments and new trends will be posted after proposing new ideas to have warmly discussions about Physics and Quantum behaviors.

Regards

Dear Jos,

Thank you for your work, I suspect that the documents you have sent me are the right path to focusing my mind on some statements made about the Universe by Religious Experts which I have been stewing over for several years.

Although I have not gone down the road of a serious study of your attached contribution due to my present commitments, I hope that I will be able to choose to study your conclusions at the juncture points of the coming months. I am sure that choosing to study your work will take me to the best outcome.

Best Regards and Wishes,

Dr Mark Doost

Dear Joseph (Jos),

I have entered my essay, so now we can discuss our entries in as authors.

I have read your essay twice to get a better understanding, you evolve a clear "line" that is to appreciate.

In my perception, lines, surfaces, volumes are time-dependent experiences of the conscious agent. I am searching for the origin of these time and space-dependent events.

I hope for your remarks

you will find my essay here

Bedankt en succes

Hi Jos,

I like the concept of putting geometry back at the forefront of physics. Was it Einstein who said all physics IS geometry? I also qualified as an Architect so am very familiar with 3D geometry but also the tapered 'spiral' form of design development, reflecting natures dynamics, as Euler discovered.

You identify the symbolic and practical importance of what can also be 'vectors' a concept I've used alongside 3D rotations/helices to demystify QM. You set out some fundamentals very well.

I see your essay seems to have been trolled with 1.0 scores as mine has. My score will help. Well done.

Peter

Thanks Peter, you´re very kind.

We are on the right track with our thinking on these subjects. It is always nice to get some endorsement.

I hope to write some other paper on this issue later this year. I will send it to you.

This trolling is indeed an issue for the fqxi team. I will ask to look at it. thanks for the score.

bests,

Jos

Jos,

Yes please do send a link to your other paper. I have a collaboration paper I think is very important in for peer review with Nature Physics at present so fingers crossed! I'll send you that. I note I hadn't applied your score yet so doing so now. Best of luck.

nice work based on premonition, it illustrates motion that translates to 2D geometry eventually to 3D objects that we touch and interact in our world. please read/rate my essay here https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3525.on how cosciusness is key to all science.

Dear Thinker Joseph Maria Hoebe,

Thank you for your nice essay on motion that changes from 2D to 3D geometry. There are many similarities you and me....

1. Your date of Birth is 8July 1954 and mine is 8 Aug 1954 exactly one month younger!

2. You 3D geometry for thinking and development of Physics, and I also used 3D geometry for development of Physics. I called it Dynamic Universe Model which is a general n-body problem solution used for explaining the properties Universe or cosmology. Many of its predictions came true.

3. You suffered health problems and I also suffered with early symptoms of paralysis with blood clottings in brain.

4. You got a revelation in 2015, so did I got it 40 years back to do this work of Dynamic Universe Model and Goddess Vak told me to do this work, which I am continuing till today

Hope you will find some time to read and rate my essay " A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy : https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3416 " to see other similar points..........

Best Regards

Dear Joseph,

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

"Coronavirus Sars-CoVid-2 shows in a gruesome way that we are all connected in one way or another".

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
