Letters to GentleYami
This is a collection of discussions over two years between Jon and his penpal "GentleYami", also known as Dudley.
(Jon) Protons and Neutrons are collections of electrons and positrons. Did you know that Protons and Neutrons do not orbit one another, but rather they morph back and forth from Proton to Neutron to Proton by trading and flipping a single Quark.
Anyway, instead of a point source of energy, electrons have no intrinsic energy at all. The energy comes from space-time attempting to fill the void, falling in at the speed of light but unable to penetrate the spinning sheath.
Once you turn conventional wisdom upside down and inside out, you find the truth.
The truth is: Everything is made of Nothing.
Matter is Energy and Energy is Space-Time. Space-Time is moving Space. Energy is the time dimension, Time is energy, E = Delta T multiplied by c squared. That is: to calculate the amount of energy in time multiply the amount of change in time by the square of the speed of light. It's a gosh number!
We are Plasma Time creatures living in a condensed energy (matter) environment. We are composed of intense swirling space-time, separate from other space-time, but made up of it. Are you starting to see the interconnected dimensions within and without swirling space-time?
Time is a unique dimension which connects all of space. Any point in time is not the same everywhere at once. It is this attribute of time that causes quantum weirdness; action at a distance, faster than light speed, and entanglement.
(GentleYami) that is amazing....I love this
You and I seem to feel the same way about space time...almost feeling it in a different way than most people...like synthesis...I like how you describe it as swirling
I'll have to think on this and digest it...there's a lot here
I have to admit my ignorance, I'm only science enthusiast. just a fan. reading your email is fascinating to me. Being a simple person as I am... I see things in simple terms. I see 'something' such as your sheath of space time.....to me....the sheath is the ability of 'something' to maintain itself in a stable state.
Something will always loop around on itself to overcome the limitations of the finite... I lean towards a cyclic view of the universe.
Why do animals eat other animals? Why do black holes consume gas and matter? Something uses itself to sustain an existence.... Kind of a way of cheating nothing.
I love reading metaphysical things.... new age spiritualism.... because it describes a dimension where time and space does not exist. In 'spirit' or the after life they say... time means nothing.... distance means nothing... there is no space time... only thought.
Basically like the movie 'What Dreams May Come' with Robin Williams. You'd have thought created realities.... if all you are is pure thought... your fantasies are literally your universe. You determine the laws of physics.
This is relevant because it goes back to what you said about how we are pieces of space time... independent but always connected. we are composed of this universe so of course we are limited by the laws of this universe... if we're not made of space time any longer... then we are free.... but disconnected, and maybe never able to make the trip back... Which might be why there can be no proof of extra dimensions or an afterlife for that matter. It would have to be a one way trip. We can't disconnect from space time any more than we can pull off our left arm. The only thing that is able to make this disconnection is our thoughts.
And they are... now as we keep writing to each other.
Quantum weirdness is a real puzzle to me, but I love hearing about it. I don't know if time is behind the scenes on that one... It feels more like a basement of what's going on on in the city streets above it. the world works perfectly. I'm sitting here typing but yet just by identifying something at that level actually changes it and not only it..something somewhere else... wow, reminds me of when they work on anything genetic... When they change this sequence or code some crazy thing happens and they don't know why at all. But they can map out what they did and know if they do this then this happens. I saw where they are actually working on quantum computers... Seems we don't really understand what's going on but we know how to manipulate what's going to happen.
Please give my best to Dudley (Jon's dog is also named Dudley). It's already been a real pleasure writing to you.
I hope I can help even if it's a small contribution in some way.
"I see 'something' such as your sheath of space time... to me... the sheath is the ability of 'something' to maintain itself in a stable state."
(Jon) That's the kind of thinking I need to compliment my style. I admit to being too negative, you are right, the stable "something" is the boundary sheath resonance, which is a standing wave of immense stability and impenetrability.
"something will always loop around on itself to overcome the limitations of the finite.... I lean towards a cyclic view of the universe."
(Jon) I absolutely agree that this universe is continuing to regenerate. The cosmic view today is incomplete, even scientists admit they do not fully understand the evidence. Muses had an advanced concept of the structure of time (he called his theory Chronotopology), which is the structure of the universe. It is like a cornucopia.
"Why do animals eat other animals? Why do black holes consume gas and matter? Something uses itself to sustain an existence.... Kind of a way of cheating nothing."
(Jon) Cheating nothing... I love it. Wish I had thought of it, but that's a concept worth dwelling on. Something bootstrapping itself. The ever flowing cornucopia. We must include this thought in the book.
"Basically like the movie 'What Dreams May Come' with Robin Williams. You'd have thought created realities.... if all you are is pure thought... your fantasies are literally your universe. You determine the laws of physics."
(Jon) In my Sixty-plus years I have witnessed people creating their own realities, you would be surprised how much power there is in concentrated thought. Some call it prayer, it works even if you are not religious. Your thoughts will bring to you what you want. Your thoughts can also destroy you if you do not know self control. The laws of physics only work most of the time... not all of the time (Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principal). It is possible to bend or even break basic laws of physics for short time periods over a small space. But everything averages out. Never underestimate the power of the mind to influence events, the brain is a powerful quantum transceiver connected to every other brain on earth. It constantly interacts in the background with reality and projected reality (dreams). You can cast thoughts, at least I can, and I'm no better than you, so I assume you can too. I read thoughts, so you must also. It is a common trait which they try to educate out of us, but Thought casting can be very helpful. Some people use it wrongly, casting dreadful spells. It works better if it is used for constructive purposes.
"Reminds me of when they work on anything genetic... When they change this sequence or code some crazy thing happens and they don't know why at all... But they can map out what they did and know if they do this then this happens."
(Jon) Oh, you hit on one of my pet peeves, I hate genetically modified anything. We are not smart enough for this line of inquiry, we are not gods (more like devils). This form of science is stupefying, like Edison plodding along with experiment after experiment, failure after failure, over 6000 of them, before deciding on Tungsten filaments. We have been saddled over a hundred years with inferior technology because it made lots of money. Now we are converting to Tesla style lamps, many times more efficient than Edison lamps, but suppressed for over a century! Watch out for money influenced genetics, it is wicked, mean and nasty. Remember, the Nazis were doing this genetic "science" before WWII.
Col. Tom Bearden was a nuclear engineer in the army, and studied Russian energy technology in the '70s and '80s. He is one truly avant guard thinker. See if you agree with his logic and mathematics concerning negative energy...
(GentleYami) I have started reading it and am loving what I'm reading so far...I wanted to send a reply even before I finished it.
Sounds like they're poking at the theory of everything... Branes and strings at first then they get into what I find very interesting.
Measurements as a matter of convenience and that everything is a function of energy.... A better way to communicate what I often call 'something'
It reminds me of the matrix movie where their reality was an illusion, and that can be true in a way I think... But opinions about reality and perception always amaze me....
I heard on a show that man is the universe's way of trying to understand itself. I liked that and I lean more to that than to the idea that our perceptions are a reality.... I don't buy that, not in this universe anyways.
I feel we just need to trust our sense of the world a little more than just saying our attempt to measure the environment around us will reveal the binary behind the cg curtain
We're here. We exist. They need to stop complicating the obvious.
I like how they focus on minutia of 'what is what?' looking at energy/something and trying to figure it out. You have to be careful with that... It's like thinking about a word for too long... And before long you're wondering why you use those sounds to make up that word and then you don't want to say the word because it just sounds alien to you.
but I love this statement:
"The short solution to begin unifying our models of nature is this: Spacetime, the virtual state vacuum, and energy are identically all one and the same thing."
That really falls into your lap for your book... this goes back to 'nothing' This is why you and I look at 'spacetime' as a spinning swirling independent diversified thing, but still the same 'thing'
This is what we've been thinking all along N=S... Nothing equals Something.
"All of physics presently regards energy as "something different from" spacetime, and that is "in" the "separate background spacetime". That is flatly wrong."
I wholeheartedly agree with that statement.
Any change in spacetime is automatically a change in the virtual state vacuum, and vice versa. We do not regard vacuum as something "occupying" spacetime, but identically as spacetime itself.
This reminds me of a recent theory where someone suggested dark matter and dark energy are part of the same thing just different manifestations.... and I agree with that idea as well. because like you're saying here... it's all space time... baryonic or mystery meat (dark matter/energy). It's all 'something' continually establishing and continually replenishing the associated "static" fields – simply steadily creates (from nothing at all) that real, observable EM energy flow.
I like how they say 'from nothing at all'
But in precursor engineering, one must keep ALL the models (in all of physics) in one's mind, because BY ENGINEERING SPACETIME/VACUUM/ENERGY ITSELF, DIRECTLY, one is actually engineering reality itself, in the NONOBSERVABLE form
I addressed this last time. The only asset in our tool box of life that can break free the bonds of space time is our thoughts.... this opens a door of possibility to talk of other dimensions.... afterlife.. new age stuff... but it doesn't change this reality or we'd all have telekinesis and it'd be a medically documented fact
I can't wish I would draw the right card as I'm playing yugioh (hobby of mine) and it just 'poof' happens.... it's all probability...
well.... but what if.... you're a spiritualist... and you believe the non physical consciousness is free of being chained to the space time grid... and they can interact in the past to affect the events at the present... I dunno.... Who's to say? some people are just strangely 'lucky'
Eerily, to get rid of negative energy, the physicists actually put forward the notion that mass-energy violates simple arithmetic! That is, since the "vacuum" or "space" is or has zero mass (and thus zero mass-energy)
dead wrong here.... this is saying that we can create a stable 'nothing' even in mathematic models... there is no absolute zero.... because the zero itself exists as an attempt at measurement... you can't measure nothing..... if there was a stable theoretic nothing then like some quantum reorganization it wipes out all of existence to stabilize a perfect state, and since I'm here typing (or at least '''think'''' I am ...LOL) that's not practical, not even in theoretical models.
This goes into the negative measurements, but that's still back to simple convenience... who are we to say 'ok you're the negative at this value'.. we're just assigning cosmic tags to particles like wild animals being tracked by GPS
I liked the conclusion where this is being challenged... it should be
I didn't really address the idea of 'force, but in my mind force is just like clear plastic balloon filled with glitter... you squeeze one end it goes to the other.... we're trying to figure out what is doing the squeezing and why does the glitter move like it does when we squeeze it... you tilt the ice tray one way and the water drains to one end....
it's all space time.... it's all sand on the beach.... and the cosmos is arranged in many many sand castles... examine the sand on any scale that you want... it's still sand.
my point is that the perceived notion of the 'negative' is not a negative at all... it's just the underside of the same snake.... looks different... acts different... feels different... but made of the same just in a different manner.
but if it makes them happy.. it's a different value than their 'zero'
wow... I liked this article
Jon, an idea hit me last night. Would you consider a Black Hole to be 'something' naturally working towards a perfect state of 'something'? Can 'something' exist in a perfect and stable state? Once a supermassive black hole becomes stable is it approaching a state of 'nothing'?
I know on the scale of cosmic time they talk about the far ahead dark ages in the distant epochs of time where only black holes exist and eventually evaporate.
I instinctively feel as if the supermassive is teetering towards a relationship with a true nothing. Could something go to a point where it falls over cyclical into nothing?
(Jon) That's a very good idea! Entropy is the perfect state of no energy, no space movement. Eternally quiescent. That is a form of perfection the Universe cannot tolerate. The Big Bang is also a perfect state, that of ultimate chaos. We are time beings dwelling in a state between those two opposite and perfect events.
On the one hand we have Super-Novas and on the other we have super massive black holes. Some astronomers think Novas are exploding black holes.
Since the very constituents of matter are spinning space-time vortices around inert space, it stands to reason that Black Holes are precisely that: "black holes" of space. The core of a black hole is inert, cold, unmoving space surrounded by a spinning resonant sheath boundary of space-time. Atomic particles accelerate to the speed of light around the accretion disk. Since the particles are also spinning at the speed of light, the boundary sheath becomes transparent and the void inside the particle is absorbed into the central void. This is how black holes grow.
Black holes do not swallow stars in one gulp, they must be unwound. Stars are matter and matter is spun up space-time. Voids attract and absorb other voids. Whirling space separates from void space at the speed of light, since there is no resistance in a vacuum. Any movement of space is at the speed of light. Also any movement of space affects all other space.
Now here is a real brain teaser... It is the contraction of space into matter that causes the inflation of space!
Think about that one for a while and you will have a brain orgasm.
As space-time spins up into matter it creates a vacuum of space which is an expansion in space.
As far as we know, there is no limit to the expansion of space, which also means there is no limit to how much matter can be created. Astronomers do not know if there is an upper limit to the size of a black hole, but we know that there is an upper limit to the size of matter.
If a star grows too massive it explodes and becomes either a neutron star or a black hole. But how can a black hole explode? Since the Black Hole is composed of void, cold, unmoving space and devoid of internal energy (energy comes from without and manifests as a spinning space-time sheath,) how can it explode?
The answer is that it does not explode, but as the hole grows larger the spinning resonant boundary sheath becomes unstable and separates into bands that start at the poles and work inward squeezing the void out of the poles in intense radiation beams. Space is squeezed, twisted, and set in motion by the unstable sheath and focused into space-time beams (gamma rays) radiated back into space at the speed of light. These are beams of space-time that cause the movement of space, and hence creation. So we see that the Black Hole is indeed a creator. Like colossal spinning wheels, Black Holes create Space-Time, and are themselves made of the interaction of space with space-time.
The Hole shrinks as it radiates and eventually the sheath becomes resonant and stable again, radiating only as much as it receives. So a black hole will never die, it just adjusts its size to more stable configurations. That is perfection in a way, is it not? Black Holes could qualify as Deities, since they live forever and they create "something out of nothing." But they are Sub-deities because they also constitute a structure. The Large Scale Structure of the Universe looks like a brain from the molecular viewpoint.
As for the last question, something can never become nothing. Boiled down, "something" is ultimately defined as movement of space, and once space moves, it moves forever at the speed of light. The Universe cannot sit still and do nothing. Even at absolute zero temperature there is motion of molecules, called "Zitterbewegung" or "Brownian motion".
Quantum fluctuations assure that there will never exist a perfect state of entropy. Should the Universe ever grind down to perfect entropy, it would spring back into negentropy at the next quantum fluxuation. The lack of perfection is what drives primordial genesis. A difference in density of space anywhere in space causes all of space to react to neutralize the difference, at the speed of light. But once in motion, space can never stop. What can stop moving space?
(GentleYami) That makes perfect sense. Just like you said. Space-time is one entity to itself... it seems very fluidic to me.... connected and as one action takes place you have equal and opposite things happening in the other part.... like soap bubbles or like watching a lava lamp. You still have X amount in the end that you began with. it's just being manipulated in a different manner. And that 'brane' is interconnected... like a cosmic bed sheet or something.
Hmmm it is mindblowing really. it's very difficult to wrap words around it huh?
So something cannot become nothing
I thought Hawking proved black holes evaporate?
I agree with what you said.... for something to become nothing is 'something-centric' thinking. Something is an imperfect nothing only and first. So N=S, not S=N
that makes sense too
that space time boundary (sheath) keeps popping up on me when I go down to the micro or go up to the macro... I keep bouncing off of it.
So it exists at the smallest part of reality and in it's gigantic too... wow.
It seems the way something or space time is saving itself is by speeding up as fast as the laws of the universe will allow it to. and if you take away something's speed and it stops then you go back to 'entropy' which blows everything up again because you cannot create a stable nothing...only an imperfect nothing. The explosion gives something (space time) back the speed it requires to hold existence.
Jon - The Lava Lamp example is excellent. You will notice over a period of time the large bubbles in the lamp break up and become smaller, and they seldom reunite, so eventually you have a bunch of smaller bubbles.
That is similar to what actually happens in space, the boundary sheath acts to keep the contents inside and foreign materials outside. Even when Black Holes get near each other, they do not merge, but begin to waltz around one another, sometimes at unbelievable speed.
I do not know if black holes ever merge, but they are probably like neutrons in the nucleus, they do not orbit each other. Being neutral, the neutron slides right through the proton and swaps a quark, the proton becomes a neutron and the neutron becomes a proton. The nucleus is in constant turmoil of identity crisis as protons and neutrons morph into one another.
I don't understand the strong force that keeps protons nestled close to each other, but the same thing happens in the center of the galaxy, where a central super massive black hole resides, and a swarm of over 6000 smaller black holes also hang out. It seems the black holes migrate to the center and hang out with their brethren, like protons.
As far as Hawkings prediction that black holes evaporate, Hawking radiation only works to a certain size, then it becomes stable, like electrons that last forever. It may be that electrons are decayed black holes. What happened during the inflationary period and the dark age of the early universe? Perhaps all there was were Hawkings radiating black holes, which decayed into present day electrons. We can only dream about these stellar to quantum phenomena because all evidence is hidden.
The resonant boundary sheath has modes of resonance depending on physical size and space density, some modes are extremely stable and some are not. That is why there are quantum steps. Certain energy levels are conducive to stable orbits. We even see this in satellites, where certain zones promote stable orbits (L5 for example).
You said "you cannot create a stable nothing... only an imperfect nothing." Yes, it turns out that "perfect nothing" is not stable. In my quest for perfection I found that perfection is not stable either! It is the lack of stability that is the creative force, not perfection. We live in an asymmetric universe that is inherently unstable and unsustainable.
This force of instability pushes creation of anything and everything, some of the creation actually finds niches of stability, like life on earth. But only nothing lasts forever.
(GentleYami) Did you see the recent science channel show "Master of the Universe?" about Stephen Hawking and M Theory? Hawking has put forth a 'proposal' that the universe is infinite but that it did have a beginning out of nothing.
They say this towards the end of the show. Hawking is saying that existence is a like a bubble.
On the same show is Lisa Randall, I think from Harvard and she's saying that gravity is weak because of extra dimensions, she describes her extra dimensions as doughnuts at every point in space time
Michio from NY University goes on about the fish tank theory of how we are floating in a 3d tank unaware of extra dimensions
I'd say they're getting closer to the truth brother. Just a few fundamental thought shifts and they'd be there. They are still guilty of 'something centric' thinking... existence is the lower state.. not the higher one... a perfect nothing is the higher state.... but that isn't possible... so something cleverly loops around on itself infinitely
These lessons can just be observed by anyone in nature... I think along the way man has lost sight of something he must have figured out very long ago
Something they proposed didn't sit well with me... your thought on this please... they are saying the big bang was a collision between 2 branes.... that just doesn't click the gears for me.... that's not right... how can you have a moment of super symmetry with the super force amongst a collision?
I need my guiding light Jon Blackmon to help me with this. (and his companion Dudley)
"I'd say they're getting closer to the truth brother. Just a few fundamental thought shifts and they'd be there. They are still guilty of 'something centric' thinking....existence is the lower state..not the higher one...a perfect nothing is the higher state....but that isn't possible....so something cleverly loops around on itself infinitely."
(Jon) I wish to include this paragraph in the book, maybe with expansions of key concepts. Essentially that is the idea, "something cleverly loops around on itself infinitely."
Hawking says "Existence is like a bubble." I say existence is like a bubble within a bubble within a bubble...
About the colliding branes...
It's all about that infinite energy thing at the big bang. How can you account for it? The proposition is that you can not create or destroy energy. That all the energy in the Universe has been here all along, and will be here forever more. So where does the initial energy come from?
M theory says it came from a collision of branes, when energy was created by mysterious inter-dimensional forces of which we are unaware, that permanently distorted space into the seething space-time we are today.
My answer is that space time is all there really is, and that energy comes from space-time attempting to equalize. Since absolute equalization is impossible, there will always be movement of space-time. And since all of (infinite) space is connected through the occurrence of time, there is an infinite amount of energy at that occurrence.
Therefore we can explain where the energy came from, it came from space itself through the occurrence of time in its relentless and futile pursuit of perfect nothing.
We do not require multiple and separate dimensions for explanation, although we do not rule them out. Space-time can assume any direction and dimensionality that is possible. These added dimensions simply add fuel to the fire, as each dimension contains another infinity! That's why it is so appealing to use the collision of separated infinities to inject the needed energy.
We say the initial energy is already accounted for in the time dimension. Adding another infinity to infinity still equals infinity. Subtracting infinity from infinity always leaves the difference, which is something. That's something to think about!
(GentleYami) I couldn't agree more
I'm sitting speaking out loud as I read saying "Right.... Right...RIGHT!!!!" over and over
so Dudley and I agree with you
(Jon) One of the most misunderstood basics of science is time. The old saying "Time flies when you're having fun" is truer than we think. Time is variable and in quantum packages.
Quantum Chronotopology article exposes basic errors in the old concepts of time and introduces a new theory that solves the paradoxes of quantum mechanics. You don't need to follow the mathematics, just read the prose that describes the mathematics. Maybe read it backwards (the conclusion first). At any rate, you will find great enlightenment in these pages.
(Gentleyami) I'm trying to understand the density decreasing part of his article
The quantum article was awesome though... I don' understand what happens when you change something just by measuring it.
ok after re reading and re reading I finally get the low density.
I'm going back to what I said before that it's approaching a point of perfect something
It seems that at some point gravity erases Lisa Randall's life's work and carries on with its happy self smashing even dimensional barriers and allowing raw gravity to work
Hmmm maybe not a perfect state but instead a 'super' state. after reading that I'm really struck at the raw nature of the force at work
It's like gravity is finally free on some nature 'gravity' preserve to roam free and live without the weight of other dimensions impeding it's power
The Planck length is fascinating... and all this time I had been confusing the event horizon for the actual object.. I did not know that (you win your bet sir)
Jon what's going on in the quantum with this super something? How can something so small rule from it's tiny throne? These things are the anchor points of existence... kind of like thumb tacks in a poster pinning it to the wall.
Oh, which brings me to the Higgs field... what do you know about that? The magic mass field. I get the feeling that the higgs field is just a frothy foamy mocha cappuccino imperfect nothing. I know their looking for more info on this field at the LHC.
(Jon) All you have, have ever had, or ever will have is space-time, and the energy to do something with it.
Ah yes, the Higgs field...
As if anyone knows anything about the Higgs field. It is a component in string theory equations, along with 11 dimensions, needed to describe mass.
I see it as a measure of connectedness of space-time.
We know that, starting with nothing but space, a Universe will create itself from the inequalities of space if given enough time. Matter is made of multiply connected space-time.
Space is free to flow in all directions and all dimensions at once. A field is a flow of space-time, which is energy. The Higgs field is a mathematical value used to express resistance to movement depending on density of mass, on the large scale this relates to gravity. We see how gravity connects us to the celestial plane, the Higgs field connects quantum particles to our plane.
We are the middle kingdom, the connection between the mighty and the minuscule. A phenomenal place in space-time!
(GentleYami) I really like your quote Jon. I can't wait to buy a copy of the book. (or copies!!)
I've learned so much from you. Thank you.
(Jon) Here is an important article about quantum communication. This technology can be used with most modern computers that use spread spectrum clocks. Look at the year this experiment was conducted. Six years later and still no one is talking about it. Why? Because the military has been using this for over twenty years. It is the basis of cryptotechnology today, sometimes called quantum teleportation.
It turns out that computers running the same short program will sync the phase of their spread spectrum clocks, no matter where the computers are located. Utilizing this effect, information can be transferred that is unique to those synced computers, and not even available to other computers not synced.
This is the future of civilian communications... it is in current military use.
(GentleYami) I was reading up on particle physics on wikipedia (please forgive me) because I am as always a humble government accountant, and found this statement which I think puts you in good company since you share this sentiment sir:
Albert Einstein believed that randomness is a reflection of our ignorance of some fundamental property of reality
Is vacuum resonance a function of space time?
The vacuum they're referring to is a gap of particles in space time right? Or are they going outside of space time?
This would create instant communication right? isn't this similar to sub space on star trek?
well I guess not though... sub space has it's limits... this would be more like star trek's warp 10... everywhere at once
if 'something' is a 'nothing' bubble or space time wrapped around a vacuum of nothing, then is the vacuum a function of nothing?
(Jon) We were discussing the probability of the macrocosms affecting the microcosms by impressing extra dimensions from above to below. The impressions would take the form of harmonics of the fundamental frequency and be related to the frequency of the proton.
Here we found a related article:
This part is most intriguing
"Kaluza-Klein (KK) gravitons can distinguish between different proposed extra-dimensional geometries.
Shiu compares the effect to a darkened room in which patterns of sound resonating off the walls can reveal the shape of the room. Similarly, KK gravitons are sensitive to the extra-dimensional shape and, through their behavior and decay, may reveal clues to that shape."
What shape do you expect they may find?
(GentleYami) I agree with Lisa Randall on this one...a doughnut.
(Jon) The torus is a good guess, but that is a three dimensional object, and we need more dimensions at this plane. My guess is to revert to known paradigms, like "As above, so below." I think each point in this universe is a reflection of the entire universe.
So the torus is the basic structure in three dimensions, but is composed of a substructure made of the smaller dimensions, sort of like this graphic of the large scale structure. Notice it is the body of the torus that is made of space. The interior of the torus is made of space-time, with it's tiny curled up dimensions, each point in the universe is a reflection of the entire universe
(GentleYami) wow that has a sharp ring of real truth to it
that actually would explain a lot of phenomena
(Jon) Ever thought about holes?
Semiconductor electronics theory includes the concept of "holes". These are spaces where electrons should be or have been. They act like positively charged electrons, but also have unique properties that electrons don't. They are disturbed areas of electrically charged space time that spin and flow opposite to their electron counterparts. Here is an article about tiny wires that force the holes to line up and flow single file.
This is a science based on manipulating "nothing". More fascinating fodder for my book, "Understanding Nothing". It is so far out it makes me think it is fiction, but it's not! Imagine a computer based on the spins of holes, someone else already has.
(GentleYami) a hands on practical application of using 'nothing' in everyday life? wow
looks like the world is just about ready for your book Jon... I want to see you on Jon Stewart or Colbert Report promoting it!
aren't positrons something like these holes?
(Jon) Yes and No. Positrons are somewhat like "holes" in that they are both positively charged and have magnetic fields, but holes contain no matter. Positrons contain no matter also, because they are anti-matter. That is not the only difference, the magnetic field of a positron is not like the magnetic field of a hole. The hole's magnetic field lines up with the direction of travel, whereas the positrons magnetic field is perpendicular to the direction of travel. Also the positron has mass whereas the hole does not.
A hole is where an electron should be, as determined by the crystal lattice structure, so it is the lack of an electron. Taking away an electron makes the atom positively charged instead of neutral. That's the source of the hole's charge, the atomic nucleus. A positron is anti-matter, so it cannot take the place of a hole because it is positively charged and would be repelled by the nucleus.
A hole cannot exist outside the crystal latticework, but a positron can. Positrons have their own independent existence in space-time, a hole depends on atomic structure and is the result of removing an electron from where it should have been.
If a positron and an electron meet, they annihilate one another in a fantastic explosion that emits gamma rays. When an electron finds a hole it drops into the hole, merging quietly and peacefully, with no radiation.
Holes are easy to make, just apply voltage across a crystal and electrons pop out all over the crystal, leaving holes. Making positrons is a whole different story, requiring atom smashers of immense proportion. And when a positron is made it immediately annihilates with the closest piece of matter, giving off characteristic gamma radiation announcing it's destruction.
You know, of course, that you are helping me write this book, and hopefully you will be there on stage with Stewart or Colbert and I to receive the roasting. Are you prepared to be associated with the quest for nothing? I can assure you this, the world is not ready for the truth.
You and I are an extremely rare breed, thinking and reasoning for ourselves, questioning even the obvious. There are people out there that would kill us for our thoughts.
(GentleYami) you're so right Jon
I've written to all the big names in the business like Michio and Neil Degrasse Tyson and no response whatsoever... they must just consider it foolhardy
but it really is the truth....
(Jon) Quantum Repulsion article in Scientific American
"Of all the puzzling physical effects predicted and explained by quantum mechanics, one of the most counterintuitive is that fluctuations in a vacuum can exert forces on objects—almost as if those objects are getting something from nothing. Even in empty space, there are flutterings of energy, and sometimes those tiny ripples act in demonstrable ways. One example is known as the Casimir effect, predicted to exist in 1948 by the late Dutch physicist Hendrik Casimir, in which quantum fluctuations create an attractive force between two surfaces in a vacuum..."
(GentleYami) that article is incredible!!
they actually say 'something from nothing' in that article.... I think the world is inching closer to the truth
(Jon) Fun facts about me
Back in 1985 I worked in your area on the biggest computers in the country. I worked on the monster computer system at Environmental Protection Agency, which takes up an entire two story building the size of a city block.
I also worked on the main computer complex at the University of NC and NC State, as well as the big banks and pharmaceutical computers in the Golden Triangle. But I didn't care for the East Coast, being a full blooded Texan, so I went back to Dallas and worked on Star Wars projects at Scientific Communications. I worked with a team of engineers in the research and develoment lab to develop one of the worlds first advanced computer controlled communications intercept system. It used pulse analyzers, signal recognizers, and a unique active antenna that had both Omni and Directional characteristics.
I don't know if I told you before or not, but my dog Dudley died last month and I've been in mourning since. A friend of mine gave me a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix so I have something to love. I call my new friend Nano.
I am also a musician, play the keyboard. One of my last projects was a digital wireless guitar. I designed the audio codec board and used a wireless module from Germany. I'll send you a video of my guitarist friend playing his guitar through the digital wireless system. The sustain he gets out of the system is amazing. I've worked with a lot of wireless systems, but this one is the best I could do... and it's just incredible!
