Essay Abstract

It is not useful to determine that reality is either digital or analog. The two guiding principles of physics, quantum mechanics and general relativity, must be merged to reveal the fundamentals of nature. Each are in conflict with the other, yet must combine for there to be a Theory of Everything.

With cyclic-time, quantization of universe in entirety describes the universe as everything, in that what we perceive in entirety is the apparent reality as the observer is within universe.

Hi Solomon, I liked the basic message which you convey in your essay. I have a suggestion of how to visualise the 'ultimate' reality of nature, an Archimdes screw models the GRAVITON perfectly if you think about it enough. If this helical screw graviton then travelled around a wraparound universe it would emerge on the otherside as an ANTI-GRAVITON or in other words, DARK ENERGY. It's too good to be ignored imo. Kind regards,

Alan

Dear Solomon,

I agree with you that it is necessary to find a way to have both a foundational reality, which might be modeled with quantum mechanics, and space-time. How to have the cake and eat it has been the problem. I was expecting you to have written more so was surprised when the essay ended soon. I was a good introduction to the subject though.

I don't usually directly recommend other people read my essay but since this is a subject in which you are interested and have put some thought into you might find it interesting.

Kind regards Georgina.

Short and sweet and straight to the heart of the matter. I love it! I've headed for precisely the same critical place with mine, but carried on... to what I believe is a highly falsifiable solution!

Most can't recognise the problem let alone the solution. (too many moving variables for the brain!) at least you're half way there already. I hope you'll give it a go (but you'll need to read it slow not scan over it!). http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/803

I've even hidden a real donut shaped black hole in the photographs for you to see if you can find. The clue is; you can only see it via the lenses.

You deserve a top score if just for identifying the real issue. (I hope you agree mine may be too). do give me your comments.

Best regards

Peter

As you mentioned, it is not possible to find the conclusions for the topics if all the reality is dealt as digital. We have to make the decisions according to the physical relations as well as the theoretical details. These are some really useful details about quantum cosmology.

In order to determine the fundamentals of nature, the two things like quantum mechanics and general relativity must be combined. So that we can predict the changes of nature. Many researchers have found out theories based on these topics but some of them failed in their theory. Babylon City Tours

In quantum cloth technology, Coursework Writing Help indicating the underlying circumstance of a framework enables one to examine the chance that it is going to be found in some different nation at a later time. Cosmology endeavors to depict the conduct of the entire universe making use of these physical legal guidelines. In making use of those legal guidelines to the universe one instantly stories an trouble. what's the underlying state that the laws must be linked to? almost speaking, cosmologists tend to paintings in reverse by way of utilizing the watched residences of the universe now to realize what it resembled at earlier than instances. This method has validated particularly fruitful. though it has driven cosmologists back to the difficulty of the underlying conditions.
