Essay Abstract

Coordinating theorems like Noether's (conserved spacetime) and Gödel's (incompleteness) requires labeling points as "exclusive predictions" between diagonals as "additional observations": one point is neither all points nor another point

Author Bio

I'm currently social distancing in Boulder, Colorado. I've been working "rigorously" in foundational physics since 2003, when I was 35. My other favorite activities are computer science, guitar, grooveboxes and skateboarding (Landyachtz). My favorite physics book is Bruce A Schumm's Deep Down Things.: The Breathtaking Beauty of Particle Physics.

My response to all ratings of 1/10 in this contest is to please leave a brief explanation, then reconsider the "first" law of thermodynamics in comparison to "me first thermodynamics" ... not only as suggested in my essay, but wherever "what is true" comprehensible: "between" additional observations and "before" being created and destroyed by strangers :)

Nvmd have fun w the contest. my only suggestion is to predict complete annihilation again #tomorrow as #always, amounting to identifying the first law of thermodynamics non-locally as Schrodinger suggested "the particularly exigent demand was the square root" like one square root of 3d disproves zero evidence cubed. I'm too dumb for this place but was going to read all the submissions. it's too tiring they're all too copy and paste from academic popularize RS or themselves, not the foundational, first law of #all #thermodynamics: 0

predict #everything against #tomorrow maybe fo the next collaborative contest

Hi

I read this essay 5 times, and I am confused. To get to the point, what PHENOMENA are you referencing as to your quoting, say of Noether's theorem. I re read your paper 5 times and I am lost.

Can you provide me with a succinct statement as to what PHYSICAL process is involved in your deliberations ?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi Andrew thx for giving my essay a try! ... I'm back to the drawing board bc my communicating skills must stink. It's supposed to be this simple, using whatever words or symbols a person chooses to use:

the followjng statements are scientifically identical in terms of what they identify (in reasonable English, given any numbber of predictions and observations)

Daniel,

Well I thought your essay was great! Then I'm a fan of the Majorana fermion, now becoming the ruling paradigm in the specialism, which is it's own antiparticle, as a simple dipole, like planet Earth! I find that's important in unravelling QM stupidities. In fact it leads to the wide common sense in my own essay,

OK, a bit more text may have helped, but I can't believe it's last, and think it shouldn't be. But there are many around dishing out 1.0 scores, mine was up there then had at least 6!! I hope you get to it in time and think it worth more.

Very best

Peter

Hi, unfortunately I'm not a good science writer but I do keep simplifying the logic and illustrations. The realization though is that what we identify as "consciousness" we also identify as "the ability to point". The "reason" individuals "sensationalise our pointing" is not because we are human but because all information is "nonLocal" which is just as terrifying for BEES and primates(with the same ability to point). The dfiference between Einstiein pointing and Noether pointing is that we're "grounded" in "psychological equality": one point is not another; aka "compress two psychologies like #THIS #NOW):

fiction: BeCreatedAndDestroyedCubed!!!

non-fiction: +1squareRoot{4) ≠ +2squareRoot(1) > +1squareRoot{3} ≠ (-)(-)(-)

labeling all points as "Square roots of negative one points, disproving this sensationalized rubbish (all information being generic contrasting points amounting to opposite directions):

1.00 points - 1.00 points

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your essay!

In my world I have elevated the Law of Thermodynamics to the second Law of Energy, (The first being Energy Conservation), namely "Energy minimizes its Energy Density" . Also known as Principle of Least Action.
