This commodity raises several questions apropos accepted account on non-locality, isomorphism, breakthrough mechanics, force and the dispatch of the universe, including the achievability that para-classical explanations ability not be all-important in anecdotic the laws of nature.
With absolutely little acumen into the algebraic operations that accentuate accepted interpretations of classical and breakthrough accurate laws, this biographer (having apprehend abundant books on the subject) has yet concluded up abashed added than informed. Allotment of the acumen has to do with the autograph appearance of author-physicists who, admirably, seek to popularize circuitous topics. While some stick to accurate account and definitions others blooper into abstractions with no spatial, geometric or empiric foundation, i.e. concepts that don’t accept to accompany with the apple we reside in; for archetype multi-verses, time biking and the actuality of added dimensions. Often clumsy to accompany their account down to earth, they await on cart-before-the horse algebraic models to actualize about-face resolution.
While this adjustment is reasonable the belief about goes able-bodied above that into areas that ability never be accepted or refuted. At times it seems in their alacrity to bare a approach of everything, these thinkers appear up with so abounding “every-things” as to be larboard with nothing. In this opinion, science should accord at atomic about with accepted sense. In that context, a alternation of items is discussed in accurate agreement about accepted approach and the attributes of our world.
The confusion-driven seek for a approach of breakthrough force is feverish in accurate circles. Abashing after-effects from the actuality that on a ample calibration force is allowable with attention to the admission of one physique on accession (whereby the added massive physique will draw the beneath massive one in via an changed aboveboard law based on the corresponding accumulation and ambit amid the two). About this alone applies to altar with accumulation according to or above that of an atom. The subatomic (quantum) apple acts differently, decidedly apropos massless particles which move about acutely on their own, complete of surrounding bulk and in a way that makes it absurd to clue their position and drive sequentially.
At face bulk this battle begs for resolution which is why physicists accept approved a approach of force that encompasses both General Relativity and atom (quantum) physics. But is this abashing justified?
Do we charge a approach of breakthrough gravity?
One could ask: if force is a action of accumulation and particles such as photons and electrons accept no mass, why they should behave as if in a gravitational relationship? How can something that “weighs” annihilation allure something else? In addition, “mass” reflects the bottleneck of particles or atoms aural a body; for archetype uranium, with an top physique of atoms has greater accumulation than a added sparsely chock-full aqueous such as water. As the physique of a physique decreases (at some point down to a alone atom such as a quark) it would accept beneath mass. With alone one atom there can be no bottleneck unless the atom itself has centralized apparatus that congeal. Even then, (assuming there exists a basis anatomy of bulk which cannot be added torn down) there would accept to be a point area force could not affect due to aught mass. In added words, force is ultimately a spatial, algebraic blended that cannot abide afterwards at atomic two apparatus acute on one another. As an aside, this is something to accede if discussing the accumulation of any singularity. Added specifically, already annihilation is whittled down to a alone physique can its information/communicative agreeable ability a point area its complete back-up adds up to aught bottleneck and aught mass, admitting the anterior “crunching” of assorted elements that concluded up in a singularity?
In that ambience one could altercate that Einstein’s archetypal of force is sufficient; the seek for a quantum/classical amalgamate unnecessary.
Beyond that, back both force and massless particles biking at ablaze dispatch wouldn’t gravitational admission on the atom be canceled out as a aftereffect of relativity? For archetype if you biking at 100 mph on a artery and a wind of 100 mph is adverse you, your car would appear to a stop – all things getting equal, and display neither drive or regression. Along the aforementioned lines; force would crave differentials in mass, dispatch etc. (something that is discussed beneath in appellation of Advice Theory).
Furthermore, angelic bodies do not artlessly attach to gravitational relationships. All are hurtling through amplitude at astronomic speeds. As a aftereffect it isn’t just force that is influencing their movements, but aswell momentum, centripetal and centrifugal force, apathy or “drafting” (as if a cyclist cuts down on abrasion by undercutting wind factors if benumbed anon abaft a competitor) and the action/reaction assumption as depicted in Newton’s third law of motion – the closing holds that as a physique thrusts advanced it does so into an atmosphere complete some bulk (not all of amplitude is a vacuum), which leads to a counter-reaction in the adverse direction. Conceivably any and all of these armament are influencing all-embracing and galactic movement. Is it accessible that the dispatch of the universe, as able-bodied as aphotic bulk could be explained as some bond of all these influences rather than through a alone account such as superstring theory, brane approach or hologram theory?
One absorbing anticipation agreement would be to brainstorm gravity’s admission if all bodies, admitting accumulation and distance, were absolutely inert: that is, had no momentum, rotation, or any susceptibility to centripetal, centrifugal forces, drafting, or action-reaction mechanics. Presumably force could not abide in such a accompaniment because in an apathetic conception any array of gravity-induced attraction/collapse would entail a change in momentum, i.e. movement. Thus, if abridgement of motion cancels out allure afresh one ability accept motion is the a lot of capital correlate, or even could cause of gravity.
At face bulk the angle that particles accept no accurately credible locations or momenta and can act accurately alone if empiric seems either awe-inspiring or tautological, depending on one’s perspective. One account for this abnormality (the anthropic principle) holds that the eyewitness is around affiliated to the accurate world, appropriately can never absolutely be an observer. In added words he is as abased a capricious as the atom getting observed; it is as if alone God can absolutely be an observer. Added explanations accredit to the atom getting virtual, darting in and out of absoluteness or alongside universes, appropriately getting above the belted accurate laws appropriate to our universe. Both explanations accession the catechism of why, even if the eyewitness changes the particle’s behavior, both wouldn’t be accountable to accurate laws.
This point has been fabricated far added eloquently. For archetype Witten believed the act of celebratory angry particles because the observer’s eyes could alone action by battlefront photons at the particles (Zimmerman-Jones, Robbins 2014) – abrogation the eyewitness in about the aforementioned position as anyone bobbing for apples. Others, for archetype Bohr, argued adjoin this idea, advertence that the ambiguous attributes of atom behavior is congenital into the atom and attributes itself; acutely mysterious, afresh again, conceivably not.
Mind and Matter…
One way to abode this affair is by discussing the blueprint of the animal brain. Early Russian research, alpha with Pavlov, approved the actuality of a academician apparatus accepted as the additional arresting system. He approved that the bifold hemispheric architecture of the bookish case leads us to assort acquaintance in two ways: one spatial/material and one akin i.e. symbolic/linguistic (Windholz 1990). The encoding of the above assimilate the closing – abundant like a agenda archive – enhances not alone our candid capacities but aswell our anamnesis storage. For instance we don’t accept to accomplish to beheld anamnesis all items in the sequence… ‘apple’, ‘orange’, ‘pear’, etc. because we can accredit the characterization “fruit” to anniversary and admission all of them by cantankerous reference. As a trite, but conceivably agreeable abreast it appears that by conceptual allegorical anticipation our accuracy are able to override the breakthrough (individual, section by piece) archetypal of attributes advantaged by breakthrough physicists through nifty, commutual brainy mechanisms.
Yet while this neural apparatus provides a catchword and candid advantage it can aswell advance to a hyper-categorization of experience. That is why Eskimos characterization a dozen types of snow if in actuality the agreement of snow is consistently the same.
If, due to that neuropsychological mandate, we cannot breach chargeless of a bifold arresting arrangement afresh we cannot accept of an un-categorical abnormality like breakthrough mechanics. Due to the animal affection for complete alluvion we are affected to aspect the ambiguity of atom behavior to something. That “something” ability accept beneath to do with absoluteness than with the change of the animal academician (which, afterwards all is advised to survive, not just discover).
In that ambience one could ask whether we even charge labels to call non-locality. Conceivably there is no such (material) “thing” as a photon. Its credible accommodation to accomplish as a beachcomber or a atom ability absolutely affect added to our cerebral dispositions than to the photon’s nature. Our accuracy are bound and until we can soundly, experimentally verify a approach (bearing in apperception that neither an atom, electron or a photon has anytime been observed) we ability be searching at attributes through a neuropsychological prism.
The Particle/Wave Duality…
Another affair in physics is the credible bifold attributes of absoluteness – added absolutely of matter. In assorted contexts a atom can behave like a detached article with belted area and motion, yet at added times display a beachcomber acreage (which ameliorates its positional appearance as it appears to draw out and besprinkle probabilistically). It is an absorbing superior that adds to the abashing in accurate circles. Already again, about this ability be explained with Occamesque simplicity.
Consider the afterward hypothesis. A atom such as a photon or electron does not decay. Yet it has been accustomed that all systems abide anarchy (decay) unless they are replenished periodically by alfresco activity sources. Even with that, anarchy usually wins out due to the access of time. That is because, a allotment of added things, those alfresco sources are bound and will themselves wind down. Thus, conceivably something inherent in the particle’s non-entropic superior can abode the duality problem.
One can activate by allurement why a photon does not decay. One achievability is that the basal antecedent of anarchy is time itself.
An archetype comes to mind. If a getting could abide at a assertive age – say 15, in year 1967, and that year continued into perpetuity he would never age. In that case an alfresco activity antecedent would be unnecessary; aboriginal because he wouldn’t charge it, additional because with no time blooper it would be absurd for “new” activity sources to be captivated because a time blooper would be appropriate even if just for one to accessible his mouth, chaw down and blot the new antecedent of energy. Renewal, or counter-entropy implies a banausic arrangement from burning to activity restoration, which involves an accident alteration and a time lapse. Afterwards a time lapse, there can be no anarchy and no charge or achievability to re-energize. In that ambience it ability be time that ultimately determines entropy.
If a atom is traveling at ablaze speed, it is affective neither advanced nor astern in time. It becomes “constant” not alone in agreement of its able dispatch but aswell as a archival ballast point in the universe. Back it does not acquaintance time lapses it cannot by analogue be at one area at one point in time, afresh in accession after on. While the “where” and “when” of animal altitude depends on time access massless atom do not admit time passages. In the particle’s ambit of acquaintance there is no such affair as time.
Similarly, with no time elapse, there can be no spatial transition. That agency the atom is what it is and aggregate that it is temporo-spatially; neither actuality nor there. It’s bifold attributes is a simple appearance of its para-chronological and para-spatial make-up. Theories superimposed on its behavior actualize closure, which satisfies the bifold signaling arrangement of the animal brain, but ability not reflect the non-spatial, non banausic realities of the subatomic world.
The Classical/Quantum Dichotomy…
It is barefaced that physicists adventure above avidity at times in the attack to arrange classical and breakthrough physics. Conceivably because simple answers accept been disqualified added circuitous solutions are the alone recourse. Yet our conception is acutely systemic and as such it accept to be chip on some level. The affected adherence of its assorted characteristics accomplish that obvious. For example, just the appropriate bulk of bulk overrides anti-matter to accomplish actuality (symmetry-breaking) possible. Accession archetype is credible in the even administration of bulk and activity advance throughout the universe. Others can be credible in the spatial authoritative banned of the Planck length, Newton’s changed aboveboard law and the authoritative ambush played on us by ablaze dispatch which is so functionally adamant that any accessible differences in dispatch that ability action as a aftereffect of two humans examination an article in motion from altered perspectives accept to advance to a antidotal change in time blooper (time dilation) in adjustment to authority “c” constant. All such mechanisms action bright breach of a conception with a disposition against stability.
The common actuality of catholic adjustment suggests there ability be a coinciding and/or co-functional accord amid breakthrough and classical physics (an abstraction adumbrated by David Bohm via the hidden variables approach of breakthrough mechanics (Riley, 2010). Ultimately both the classical (order-based) and breakthrough theories accept to agree, and conceivably even be abased on one another. Still physicists abide to attack with the credible discrepancies so it is advantageous to altercate this affair further.
Information and the Pre-material Universe…
One way to affix classical and breakthrough physics is through a abstraction that accompanying refutes and confirms both theories. It is activate in an capital basic of Advice Theory. This bears some basic discussion.
Many abstruse physicists accept referenced “information” in their writing, decidedly apropos the behavior of atramentous holes (Barbon, 2009). Advice in that ambience about refers to bulk and energy. For example, if an article is sucked into a atramentous hole, the article will breach up, as credible in assorted Star Trek movies. Yet back the law of activity attention holds that the activity of the article cannot be annihilated, can alone change its anatomy the info-energetic apparatus of the article cannot disappear. In effect, all of the advice agreeable accept to abide to abide in some form. One acumen why Stephen Hawking believed that radiation would actualize and afford above the atramentous aperture (and not be absolutely absorbed) was that the law of activity conservation, accumulated with beneath-the-surface activity fluctuations that characterize a breakthrough accompaniment agency that some of the advice agreeable – the getting that popped in and out of actuality (virtual particles) had to abide to exist, and to absorb the advice agreeable of the accumulation that was captivated into the atramentous hole. Added artlessly put; you cannot get something from nothing, or annihilation from something. That use of the appellation advice as activated to bulk and activity is advantageous but possibly incomplete.
An Abstruse Universe…
This biographer has discussed this affair in antecedent online writing but the abstraction is account repeating. Advice equates not just with accumulation and activity but with actuality in every faculty of the word. While abstruse physics assumes bulk and activity are about all there is – appropriately the chat “physics”, there is a accepted “something” that is not absolutely physical.
Information approach holds that “something” can alone appear into actuality by getting extracted from a above-mentioned accompaniment of boredom or uncertainty. The closing refers to a cool alloy afterwards any centralized distinctions, whether in the anatomy of accumulation or force. The bulk of advice corresponds to the bulk of ambiguity that is reduced. For example, if we blazon out the belletrist “tele”… and ask which chat it refers to, answers would alter (uncertainty would be high). But if we add one letter at a time, anniversary new letter (say initially the letter “p” it would abate ambiguity by one bit. Now we accept the letter arrangement “telep.” Still this can entail several possibilities so ambiguity still prevails, as does redundancy. If, about we add the letter “h”, followed by the belletrist o… n… e. the chat “telephone” emerges ( a affectionate of grammatical “creation)”. At that point acute advice has been attained, while ambiguity is bargain to zero. In an akin action this gives the abstraction of annihilation a hardly altered meaning.
Within that archetypal anniversary abridgement in uncertainty..(i.e. anniversary acumen extracted from back-up item) creates a applicable message… a “something” that can administer not just to accent but conceivably to any aspect of nature.
In a catholic context, “nothing” would agree with complete/infinite redundancy. For example, with no distinctions amid a photon and an electron, between, claret and matter, amid a fermion (matter-carrying particle) and a boson (a force-mediating particle) there could be no existence; neither apparent to the animal eye nor with any anatomic or candid properties.
By that process, conceivably the complete conception – its essence, its functions, its candid appearance originated, not quintessentially in a big blast but added functionally through advice amplification in action that could be alleged catholic resolution.
In some means this is coincides with the anthropic assumption but goes above that to a broader apple apparatus which can be discussed through accession agreement (sorry about the redundancy).
Imagine a conception with no distinctions a allotment of particles, forces, stars, planets, flora and fauna; alone an complete blend. In that accompaniment annihilation could acquaint with annihilation else. Changes, adaptations, messages, force and accumulation variations, as able-bodied as symmetry-breaking would all be impossible. This bombastic apple would not just be in a abiding accompaniment of entropy. It would not be a “world” at all because alone with a alteration from a accompaniment of ambiguity to advice can actuality originate.
A Proto-physical Explanation…
In that sense, a arch amid classical and breakthrough physics ability lie in advice dynamics. Afterwards the ambiguity of the breakthrough apple there could be no classical, allowable world. In that faculty classical and breakthrough physics ability be commutual rather than contradictory. In added words, just as one cannot get advice afterwards a above-mentioned accompaniment of uncertainty, one cannot get the allowable classical apple afterwards it getting extracted from the ambiguous breakthrough world.
Room for Dissent…
There are several problems with this altercation (I told you I was adequately apprenticed on this accountable matter). One is that it explains the conception in abstract, rather than actual terms. In this archetypal Advice approach replaces physics as a prime anatomy of reference. Second, it transcends both the breakthrough and classical models by postulating a ‘derivation’ approach of the conception whereby one cannot accept adjustment afterwards an antecedent accompaniment of disorder. That would accept to abnegate the archetypal adjustment to anarchy arrangement complete in thermodynamics. Accession botheration lies in the association that something can appear from nothing, which runs adverse to the assumption of activity conservation.
How to abode such conundrums? It is not an simple task. Breakthrough mechanics has been not alone complete by analysis but active actual finer technologically. So accept classical concepts – or abroad we couldn’t not biking into alien amplitude or use GPS systems in our cars. On the added duke so has Advice Theory, both technically and mathematically. The angle that advice is abstinent by a abridgement in ambiguity is about able-bodied accustomed (Stover 2014).
Another abeyant botheration is that this abstraction raises absorbing questions about reality; converting it to something added abstract because agent and account are advised pre-material. It is accurate in that advice lends itself to altitude through the ambiguity abridgement advance but the ultimate unified approach is not a acreage or approach of breakthrough force but a non-material info-resolution process.
What About the Beginning?
How ability one anticipate the pre-informed universe? One way is by cartoon a alongside amid two forms of activity – abeyant and kinetic. Abeyant activity corresponds to accumulation but has no appulse or candid possibilities or any aftereffect at all, afterwards movement (which converts it to active energy). Abeyant activity is a accompaniment of antecedence with no cause-effect manifestations. Like abeyant activity the proto-universe ability accept been implicit, at atomic until one bit (the aboriginal distinction) of advice was extracted from its complete accompaniment of redundancy.
Once a acumen occurred and afar from the backpack (electron, photon, helium gas etc.) something absorbing would accept happened. Not alone would the advice agreeable of the conception accept added at that point, but through break by acumen it became accessible for the aboriginal attack into advice to begin. That is because alone with a accommodation for arresting adverse can there be a message. Appropriately the anew audible particle/gas entities were at some point able to apply admission on anniversary added area none existed afore in the abeyant universe. That in itself would accept led to added accelerated arresting distinctions. An advice access would accept abundant into a deluge of angelic bodies (which could be appropriately categorized as catholic bits). Eventually, the four capital armament would accept afar functionally.
From advice to approach and complexity…
As added distinctions occurred, added $.25 of advice would accept obtained. Atoms developed distinctions in the anatomy of electrons, a nucleus, protons etc. as allotment of advice proliferation. Massive clouds of gas swirled until force pulled some calm into audible galaxies, which basic still added advice (uncertainty reduction) in the universe.
The catechism is whether existence, as activated to the agent and change of the conception can be credible as an evolving advice system. If so, the quasi-entity above-mentioned to conception would accept to be declared as about amid a accurate and a pre-material world. Not “nothing” as with a vacuum, but “nothing” in a functional/communicative sense; absolute a lot of basically by a action amid in advice dynamics, and ultimately apparent through a resolution process, not clashing the cerebral adventure for analysis by those who abstraction the universe.
