Essay Abstract

Einstein’s theory on General Relativity is considered today, incomplete, because it doesn’t account for many of the things we see in astrophysics and Quantum Physics. Which raised the question, what was happening? If General Relativity can’t answer the mysteries of the universe, what can? This comes to the Cold/Heat Force theory. The Cold/Heat force theory puts in to perspective the two fundamental constituents of the Universe. We begin to see these kinds of paired forces everywhere; most importantly, you would find them in the fundamental building blocks of elements [protons, electrons, neutrons]. With this deeper understanding to how the universe works we can create a source of unlimited energy, and save our planet from self destruction.

Dear Loubriel,

Just wanted to let you know that I have read your essay. It was not at all what I was expecting. Which is probably not a surprise to you. You are talking about some foundational issues, so it must have been accepted for inclusion in the competition for that reason. Though it seems that your entry was aimed at showing your new theory and how it works rather than addressing the essay question itself. In which case you have succeeded.

Kind regards, Georgina.

Dear Georgina,

We knew that we didn't fully address the question. We knew that we couldn't address it and the Cold/Hot Force theory in the page constraints for this essay; the theory was so vast that we left HUGE amounts of supporting information out so . So, we opted to explain the theory in light of laying down the pieces for explaining whether the universe was analog or digital. We believe it to be both. Kindly put as "Infinite in the finite." A crude example would be to imagine this: if you took a pencil and drew a line on a piece of paper, you can hear the pencil scratch across the page, you can see a line being formed behind the tip as you drag the pencil across, this is an example of analog. The line is finite, it has a beginning and an end, but if you fold that piece of paper where each end of the line touches each other, that line continues on forever; the infinite in the finite.

"Everything we see and hear is a continuous transmission of information to our senses. This continuous stream is what defines analog data"

-http://www.techterms.com/definition/analog

"Digital information only estimates analog data...digital information can also be copied, edited, and moved without losing any quality"

-http://www.techterms.com/definition/digital

To add, everything in the universe can also be described in numbers which contributes to the digital aspect of reality. Using these definitions and the example I gave, you can see how these 2 sides start to blend together. Like that drawing, nature can be copied, edited, and moved; if we can understand the underlying principles of our universe, then anything can be done with the right method of approach. To say the universe is only one or the other is like denying the existence of one-side of a two-sided coin. The Question whether our or not our universe was Analog or digital isn't blatantly expressed in the essay, rather, if one understood the approach of the proposed theory you would see that the answer to the question is in the understanding of the theory.

Dear Loubriel,

I agree with your sentiment that, as you write "the existence of knowledge was never meant for personal gain," but instead, as you aptly say, "the dissemination of truth." Well expressed! I enjoyed your contribution.

Best regards,

Paul

I think this is great concept! It is just hard to prove under the traditional Newtonian physics, instead you need to use quantum physic principles.

Using Eddington’s Polytrope [ρ = K1P1/γ (Lane-Emden’s equation variant)] we can state that the cold force works on identical principles for its quanta of space. Simply put, if the radius of a metron [1.3991285073 x 10^-33 cm] can be used as a reference point, we can say that the pressure in a mole of mass is equivalent to the density of metrons within that mole exerting its omnidirectional force. So this is to say that Eddington’s Polytrope can be used as a model to show how the metrons will interact in a volume of space or mass. To note, Eddington’s Polytrope isn’t limited to the state of gas as its model for interaction in mass, but actually covers phase changes of matter as the pressure in a given volume is increased. As pressure is increased, the phases of matter begin to change within that volume of mass [from gas to liquid, liquid to solid; vice versa]. Here’s an example, if we take a balloon and fill it to capacity with air at room temperature, the balloon stretches to accommodate the expansive pressure the gas is exerting on the walls of the balloon. Using Eddington’s Polytrope equation we would find that the pressure inside the balloon is greater than the pressure outside of it because of the limitation of space the balloon can contain.

Novum Organum (1620) by: F. Bacon (1561-1621)

The third of the seven modes […] relates to […] Heat and Cold. And herein man’s power is clearly lame on one side. For we have the heat of fire which is infinitely more potent and intense then the heat of the sun as it reaches us, or the warmth of animals.

But we have no cold save such as is to be got in wintertime, or in caverns, or by application of snow and ice, […]

And so to all natural condensations caused by cold should be investigated, in order that, their causes being known, they maybe be imitated by art.

With these words F. Bacon adequately describes the foundational purpose of this paper. For this paper uncovers the arts expressed, and created by our universe.

Dear Loubriel

Energy quanta are a think of the past! We need “A World Without Quanta”! And you can make that critical difference to help bring it about. Cast your approval for a world that makes sense and bring this essay out of the cusp of 'being or not being'! The results are deeply significant and totally iconoclastic. But we need to bring this essay to the 'church' on time! You among others can be the best man!

all the best,

Constantinos
