Essay Abstract

The goal of science is to find the answers and the solutions for fundamental questions, mysteries, observations, and perceived errors. Our methods on how we dispense knowledge and opinions is often developed populism or entrenched academia and not scientifically set by the goals and the framework of the scientific methods and science philosophy to provide clarity and knowledge. Decidability, computability and predictability are essential goals for discovering and asserting the truth. Scientist should evaluate if they are utilizing the proper tools of the scientific methods and have the proper definitions and axioms in place before “it” is Undecidable, Uncomputable, or Unpredictable. This essay explores if undecidability, uncomputability and unpredictability are due to the disorganization of logic and the scientific methods or if a real condition - why.

Dear Professor Gilbert Leon Joseph Beaudry,

Thank you for a simple but well argued essay . Your starting words are excellent...........How can scientists kick start a paradigm shift to destroy the anomalies, the undecidabilities, the uncomputable, and the seemly unpredictabilities to make accurate predictions and provide accurate descriptions for observed phenomena?

Only in quantum mechanics and cosmology do mind-boggling conclusions, riddles, perplexing mysteries, and unsolved anomalies arise so plentiful..............

In this context i want to state that by keeping some ethical and Physical principles a new theory can give better results....I hope you will have a little spare time on my essay... "A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy".....

Best Regards

I read your essay and liked your fresh approach of throwing out all the present theories and speculations and replacing them with foundational principles. Some of which you state are very good but one could expand or refine the list you provided, which opens up possibilities for establishing better scientific philosophy.

I may expand upon it in publication. There is a lot one could do with that concept and I congratulate you on it.

Dear Professor Gilbert Leon Joseph Beaudry,

Thank you for reading my essay and for well thought comments.

I was working on this Dynamic Universe Model for the last forty years under the guidance given by Maa VAK. Almost all papers are important, all results are important, many predictions came true. I dont know which result to eloborate, please see my comments in reply to your post on my essay.

I just rated your essay now much better than above average, now your is rating is 5.3. Best wishes to your essay

Warm regards

Gilbert,

Nice essay. Easy read, and I think you hit most all relevant nails on the head. I'm ot sure why your score is so low, likely the same tactical 1.0 scores mines been hit with.

Our essays certainly agree on a few key points; Good scientific methodology is needed to assess things not the 'beliefs' most now seem the use. To many riddles and mysteries from poor analysis (I address some), 'wrong conclusions', and the likelihood that 'disorganisation of logic' is a problem.

I think I show that's correct, using Poppers method to keep digging down to ultimate bedrock!

Nicely done, my score will give you a lift.

Very best

Peter

Thank you, Peter - it certainly did, and I appreciate you picking up my spirits.

I read your essay and still trying to understand it. I'm not good at using mathematics but consider myself good at developing concepts.

I did add a reply to your post on wavelength change. Light speed is an interesting topic I'm very interested in expanding on based on observations - that caught my attention.

I am still analyzing your essay as there is a lot in there to consider and hoping to be able to make an intelligent contribution to your comments and give it a rating.

Dear Gilbert,

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.

"consider myself good at developing concepts".

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
