astro picture for the day

---------------------------------Mechanical Universe extra for the day!


I've already addressed these aspects of the physics and particle physics world.  I don't know why they felt like making two very similar episodes and side by side!  But, they did, and they made more than one extra 'review article' like episodes like episode 1.  I'll get around to posting those also.

However inadequate my post about quantum electrodynamics and chromodynamics, it's more than what "Mechanical Universe" does!  What more to say?  How about my theory of quantum gravity!

Quantum particles are perpetually jiggly things.  They also have an ability to disappear from one place and reappear on the other side of the wall; they're waves and particles at the same time.  There was a recent(about a year ago) report about experiment/observations of electrons that they are perfectly spherical(when not bound to an atom) within experimental error.  How do they manage that?!  Let me mention one more phenomenon about quantum particles which is rather famous with today's quantum computing efforts, quantum entanglement.  They showed experimentally I do believe around 1980 that if you entangle two electrons(quantum particles), shoot them at opposite directions, and then do something to one of the electrons, the other electron will feel that faster than the speed of light.  How does that work!?

My solution is higher dimensional spaces going in and out of lower dimensional spaces.  The famous example of this is the flatland story of the 1800s.  I recall the authors name is Abbot; i havn't read the book; i need to; i get the info from any number of books.  Anyways, the idea is that take a sphere and pull it through an euclidean plane; at first, you see a point(tangent contact), then circles, first small then ever growing larger in diameter circles; then, the circles diameters get smaller as the sphere goes through the plane till it goes to a point and disappears all over again.  Sound familiar?  Yes, quantum particles! 

How does this explain the quantum entanglement experiment?  And how quantum particles can seemingling walk through walls?  Quantum particles are not just spheres going through planes, but much more complex higher dimensional shapes going through lower dimensional spaces.  Complex shapes that as they go through lower dimensional spaces, their shadows show up on one side, maybe predominantly, but, then they disappear and reappear somewhere else, maybe on the other side of the wall.  The quantum entanglment experiment?  By quantum entangling, a more complex higher dimensional shape has been created, and shooting them off just stretches it out; doing anything to one side obviously makes a reaction to the other side.

So much for quantum mechanics.  But, what about gravity?  I look to inflationary theory.  The inflationary period occurs at the planck time scales . . . it seems to be like a sphere going through a plane; it starts out as a point, then ever larger circles, and then smaller circles.  Well, in the big bang, the circles, actually in the big bang, it would be spheres, get larger and larger, and then they stay larger.  In fact today, we feel like there's an accelleration.  I've suggested this is just an inflationary aftershock.  But, it seems to me the inflationary theory seems like a higher dimentional shape going through a lower dimenstional space.  We can see easily how this higher dimensional interpretation of inflationary theory and quantum particles as I've described above are analogous, but how does gravity work here?  Well, the higher dimensional shape going through a lower dimensional space is like pulling apart a rubber band(or, one could even say like in Einstein's general theory of relativity, a mass bands spacetime). 

------------------------------------crazy science/technology extra for the day!

First I'd like to mention something similar to something I just found.  In "the Turing Option", probably the best hard sci-fi book next to "the Daimond Age" I've yet found, at the end of the book, they talk about this one quantum one way thermos bottle like material.  They mention how it would allow beer cans to stay cold for years, and one can bring down the cold from the north and south poles and use superconductivity more efficiently.  I've tried to see if anybody has worked on it; they have; but, it appears to be something that maybe only quantum computers can compute.  But, now to something I found just now.

This work can reduce energy loss in electronic devices considerably.  If anything, It allowed me to mention the above wild idea from a mere sci-fi book!
