Essay Abstract

This paper describes a potential missing physics that leads not only to the artifact undecidability, uncomputability, and unpredictability but also to the current widely known paradoxes of physics/cosmology such as dark energy, dark matter, multiverse, measurement problem (the collapse of the wave function) etc. The proposed Universal Relativity Model (URM) integrates the missing physics of the hidden variables identified as spontaneously converting (decaying and forming) mass, space, and time as per relativity theory. URM describes the fundamental relativistic mechanism governing the quantum events and as to how gravity and measurement interference could affect the wave-particle nature of the observed collapse of the wave function to classic behavior. URM predicts coherence and de-coherence boundary or collapse of the wave function affecting the limits of quantum versus classical behavior as well as the measurement uncertainty of the self-decaying/forming quantum particle. There is no inherent (Heisenberg’s) uncertainty built into natural phenomena; the observed uncertainty in quantum measurements results from the measurement error caused by the destructive nature of the classical measurement process that alters the inherent relativistic mass-space-time of the measured event. URM also explains the current paradoxes of physics and cosmology such as dark energy, dark matter, multiverse, black hole singularity etc. URM consolidates and replaces many different interpretations of quantum mechanics into one coherent picture of reality within a holistic relativistic framework and model vindicated by the empirical observations of the universe.

Respected Prof Avatar Singh Sab,

Wonderful new concept you have introduced in the field of quantum physics!!

It is a very difficult field to understand. I hope it will cover all its aspects in future also. Best wishes for your essay ....

By the way...... I just elaborated what should be the freedom available to an author when the “ real open thinking” is supported. Have a look at my essay please.

Dear Mr. Gupta:

Thanks for your time and comments on my essay.

You have presented good ideas for requirements of an acceptable theory in your essay. I agree with you that Big Bang is not a complete and correct theory. My paper presents an alternative to the Big Bang paralyzed by numerous unresolved paradoxes.

Good luck with your essay.

Best Regards

Avtar

Dear Gupta Ji

You earlier mentioned that you have given high ratings to my essay and asked me to reciprocate.

Following my review of your essay and some valid questions/criticism of your essay, you decided to give me extremely low ratings in revenge. Why?

I have responded to all your posts and still have many unanswered questions to related to the Dynamic Universe model.

Please have an open mind to review and rate essays in accordance with its relevance to the topic of the essay competition.

Dear Avtar,

Despite it is a bit speculative and provocative, I like your Essay. I have a question: concerning Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle you wrote that there is no inherent uncertainty in nature insofar. But Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle is a consequence of a mathematical theorem of Fourier transforms. It is quite difficult to go against a mathematical theorem. How do you explain this issue?

In any case, I had fun in reading your Essay. Thus, I will give you a high score. Good luck in the Contest.

Cheers, Ch.

Dear Christian:

Thank you for your time in reading my essay and providing valuable comments.

Regarding the mathematical basis of the Heisenberg uncertainty, it must be integrated with the physical aspects of the measurement that alters the physical characteristics of the phenomenon being measured. The original mathematical formulation of the Heisenberg uncertainty ignores the relativistic aspects of the quantum phenomenon being measured. My paper shows that integrating the relativistic aspects into the mathematics reveals that the measurement error or uncertainty is caused by the destructive nature of the classical measurement method of an inherently relativistic phenomenon. Hence, the uncertainty is inherent in the measuring method and not in the nature itself.

In summary, incomplete mathematical formulations ignoring the wholesome physical effects could lead to incorrect conclusions regarding the true nature of reality. Similarly, mathematical conclusions leading to multiple universes and dimensions are artifacts of incomplete mathematical formulations ignoring relativistic effects.

Best Regards

Avtar

Respected Prof Avtar Singh Sir,

Thank you for your post in my Essay. I was working on Dynamic Universe Model for the last 40 years. Many books and papers were published. As this is N-Body problem solution none of the academicians in Physics appriciated my efforts. No one ever supported in my life.

I showed in my essay about the problems this model solved. Hope you read them. these were continuing even today. My Mail Id was removed from this forum two times.

People directly criticized indirectly stabbed on the back, i think you are well aware of these ...

I am a retired person from a steel plant in 2014, Non doctorate, main stream refused a seat in PhD for 'A' person like me. I dont have any earnings now except from my savings before 2014. What revenge I take with you sir?

Any way i am contacting FQXi for a rivision, hope you will reciprocate...

Best wishes to your essay sir

Dear Singh, Sc. D., I read your informative essay and noticed that you paid a lot of attention to the Heisenberg certainty principle. In my essay I interpret this principle differently, so I chose you as an opponent to discuss my concept of the neocartesian generalization of modern physics, based on the principle of the identity of physical space and Descartes’s matter, according to which physical space is matter, and matter is space that moves because it is matter.

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 »

Dear DBS:

Thanks for your comments on my essay; However, you did not provide any specific review comments/ratings regarding the viability of my universal relativity approach to enhance the mathematical formulations of both DeBroglie and Heisenberg formulas.

Please note that the Universal Relativity Model inspired by a holistic solution to many current unresolved paradoxes of QM, GR, and cosmology. The model is vindicated by the empirical observations of the universe.

I will try to read your paper and comment soon.

Dear Singh, Sc. D., at the very beginning of the essay you took the photon energy formula. It is acceptable to assume that this energy is equivalent to the mass of motion m, but it is not accepted to assume that the photon has a rest mass M, despite the fact that you have connected it with the wave packet that forms the particle. We still have to think about this. You are well done that you are handling the Lorentz transformation formulas in this way. Perhaps you can do something like Einstein, who treated them as he wanted. I give high ratings to those who visit my page and leave her comment on it regarding the neo-Cartesian generalization of modern physics, even if they did not agree.

Avtar,

Welcome back. I read your essay with great interest.

I can't pretend to fully understand the URM model but most of the concepts you present have always made more sense to me than orthodox QM theory. For some time I've been an adherent of the Penrose-Hameroff objective reduction concept, believing the Copenhagen interpretation too far-fetched and anthropocentric-based. Our ideas seem to parallel one another, mine w/o the cogent model URM. I also state the undiscovered 96% of the observed universe missing with the dominant theories, marvel about and pose the discovery of bridges between the classical and the quantum worlds, and when a better understanding of the quantum world could give us discovery epiphanies.

I plan to do a second reading whenever I can. I hope you get time to read mine.

Avtar,

I have commented on you essay but discovered I have not rated it yet. Time grows short so I am now rating it, being your 4th rating. My reason for mentioning this is that many ratings are 1s or 2s w/o comments. I remember I enjoyed reading your essay a few weeks ago.

Dear Avtar,

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

"The foundations of a wholesome science must be built upon a non-destructive observation method without truncation, deformation, or fragmentation of the relativistic continuum of the fundamental universal reality".

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
