Essay Abstract

The reason why physics is stuck at this particular time and place is surprisingly simple. The foundational assumption of present day physics is wrong because it has no tie in to the reality we experience and that has created the very split, (Physics can not bridge the gap between the physical and the non-physical), that has been the long held hope for Physics to bridge. The TOE, the Theory of Everything. What follows will explain it all.

Dear Gerry Leslie Klein,

Wonderful essay, truly came out of your life's rich experience, well thought over essay,good.

Your nice words in your .......The foundational assumption of present day physics is wrong because it has no tie in to the reality we experience and that has created the very split, (Physics can not bridge the gap between the physical and the non-physical), that has been the long held hope for Physics to bridge.......

This is what my essay also says, see .... " A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy"

Dear Mr Klein,

I explore some very similar topics in my essay and I believe your efforts deserve a great rating;

Please take a look at my essay A Grand Introduction to Darwinian Mechanics

Those who write about good specific topics have a very good paper in my opinion.

The Michelson – Morley experiment showed a lack of logic by everybody. The horizontal flow of EM radiation along the surface of Earth, or any spherical body, experiences equilibrium so that the frequency remains constant. The same lateral effects of gravity that keeps us upright equally everywhere keeps radiation flow constant. Any tilt upward of the test flow destroys equilibrium and will cause distortion of the frequency. In order for a solar ray to arrive here, it always follows a curved path as the source and the destination have different perspectives of straight up. Both the revolution and the rotation of earth are continually being controlled by the same flow that carries the Radiation beam.

This all becomes obvious from the pushing gravity portion of my ‘Universe is Otherwise’ model.



Regarding your motion discussion, everything moves due to gravity. The idea by physics to separate waves (that do flow) from particles was bad. So gravity is the rational explanation of the cause of motion to exist in the first place. Of course the idea of eternal motion was subsequently misused by proposals of the big bang and the expansion of the universe.

I hope you can review my paper.

A new era dawns.  Old questions become quaint and historical.  Is the whole community ready?  Or is physical reality too dangerous for our collective understanding at this time? Thank You.

Dear Gerry,

I greatly appreciated your work. 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

Dear Gerry,

I read your paper and I see that you have found that motion is an important thing to understand when considering the difference between something and nothing. When one looks at the observational information from particle accelerator interactions, it becomes clear that all things that we observe in the universe (field particles, energy photons, and matter particles and all...
