Amateur physicist uses Aether, solves Theory of Everything, awaits peer review.

I probably could have gone pro, maybe if I hadn't fallen in with the cool crowd. I think of those days and I wouldn't mind to give high school Nakani a slap. Bohring indeed.

I never did needed that class, until I came to the JREF (You were right Mr. Martel!). In R&P, I thought I might join in on a conversation explaining the universe. I figured, I had things hashed out but the good members were kind enough let me know, I was missing a few details and I'm not Galileo.

I wouldn't mind to try again.

First things first, the obligatory anti mainstream rant.

Chasing the notion that time is a piece in the fabric of the universe is ridiculous. Mr. Einstein fell in love with time on a train, and just didn't let it go. You know how some physicists are with their theories. This simultaneously made thought experiments hip and put physics on a timeline to misunderstanding.

Due to an anomaly and a vivid imagination, time is a thing. Without us though, the cosmos doesn't care. Time can be a human tool, not a force of nature.

I know everyone is chomping at the bit for me to say the 'A' word, lets get to it. Keep in mind, this ain't yer Grandpa's stuff, this is as pure and smooth as can be. Try a whiff, it will solve all your problems.

When it comes to the universe, it is the lack of time, aka, the instant, which is the player here. A series of cascading instances, if you want to break it down, or just one if you can see that far.

Logic would dictate that solid matter does not exist, so it starts with nothing. This nothing though, is not true nothing. There is a space, still nothing but not quite.

This space is as small as can be, right next to all the other spaces. One space is the necessity for two, three and the rest. This is happening in an instant, until all the spaces are there.

If we treat the spaces like points, the first shape is triangle and the first form is tetrahedron. Space is quantified, arranged in tetrahedral matrix.

Tetrahedron don't quite fit together tiling space. This causes a shifting of the pieces, movement of space. The instant holds the size of the spaces but not the position. These movements multiply until the little storms commonly called protons and neutrons are formed.

Yadda yadda yadda, here we are.

Creation story or not, I'm proposing that the Aether is quantified space. It is pieces of the smallest space, which make all this possible.

The spaces, when pulled upon, can't separate, they are already the smallest space. Pulled in opposite directions, neighboring spaces slide in to absorb the tension.

Circular motion can disrupt space, circles and triangles don't mix well. At the center of the circle, the pieces are turned into a circular space. This abnormal space pulls the surrounding spaces in, to fill the void.

This would snap together in an instant if some how this happened in static space or the motion stopped. The circular motion holds the circle and causes a bit of a traffic jam on the way to the center. The spaces pull out from the pack, in towards the center. Spaces that become contained are cut off from the originals and disappear into a new instant.

Spaces are the same no matter what the size, the smaller pieces inside the larger become the larger(but don't add to the size). The center grows with the jams, eating at the walls, until the motion shifts to a flow spiraling towards the center. This is gravity.

As the flow filters through matter, spaces don't push 'down' on the atoms.

Each atom is a spherical system of spaces. The gravitational flow passes through matter, around the atoms. Downstream behind each atom there is what could be called an eddy but is more of an area of tension. Due to the strong resistance to separation between the pieces, matter moves in the direction of the flow, pulled along by the tension created behind the atoms.

Flowing spaces are moving tension. A direction gives the tension a structure that static spaces don't have. Matter moving through space which is not gravitating, behaves differently.

When space is moving, it pulls on the matter, when it's just matter that moves, it pulls on the spaces. Space is pushed aside by the atom and comes back when it passes. Tension on the opposite side of travel is still there but the static spaces offer little resistance.

Resistance from static spaces does increase with speed. As speed increases, the disturbance of spaces grows. Matter pulls against the resistance to separate until the sort is completed.

When it comes to Planets vs. the Aether, the pieces of outer space don't encounter the planet itself. Gravitating space is already flowing through the matter and extends out around the planet. The pieces of space in a planets path, only interact with the gravitational flow and magnetic field, not the matter it is made of.

I feel like there might be a few questions already. If not, I'll try Magnets next.

It’s really not obligatory, and you aren’t doing yourself any favors with it. It doesn’t help explain your own ideas.

Quote:

Off to a bad start. The word you want there is not “quantified” (which just means measured) but “quantized”. That you don’t even know the proper vocabulary for your own ideas is a very, very bad sign.

And nothing in the rest of your post helps dispel that negative impression. I’m not really interested in digging into your “theory” to see what’s wrong with it, because you have failed already on a far more basic level. Current theories of physics work well. You can argue that they are wrong, and maybe they are, but they are still accurate for a lot of conditions.

If you want to supplant current theories with something else, you need to do two things: first, show that the new theory can get the same correct results as current theory, and two, show that it gets DIFFERENT results for something that current theory either hasn’t tested yet or gets wrong. And this has to be done with quantifiable (correct usage of the words) and testable predictions.

You have not attempted to do either of these things. Until you do, no one will take you seriously.

So who is this amateur scientist who has solved the theory of everything?

Is there a place where this theory is put forth in a language that can be understood?

By the way, though you might chomp at the bit, the horses whose action gave rise to the expression champed. If you chomp you tend to break teeth.

Just to give a different type of response...

... a physicist with claims of new knowledge is in many ways a secular prophet. They claim to have something to tell us about the world. And they gain our confidence by making predictions that turn out to be true.

As it turns out, quantitative predictions inspire the most confidence, and pretty much differentiate "science" from "not science".

So I recognize your claims as to how nature works. Do you have any quantitative predictions to inspire our confidence in your claims?

That was my reaction, too.

Nakani, do the math and get your theory published in a high impact journal, and then maybe we can talk. Well, not me specifically; the math required to solve even special relativity is beyond me. But at least then you'd have the ear of the world's physics community instead of simply posting a bunch of words to some forsaken backwater forum on the web.

At times that brilliant philosopher, Shakespeare, is the only response:

"a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by
(well, you know ), full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

If words are your one and only jam, you should not be trying to reconcile quantum mechanics with anything.

And considering the number of words expended explaining this kind of thing, it raises the question of whether words are even your jam.

It's hard to imagine having no clue about quantum mechanics trying to update quantum mechanics, but here we are. Best bet? Just abandon this thread.

Well that did not go as expected. I had hoped someone would find a hole in my logic. I guess I will keep on going through the list. Tomorrow I can post more.

Can't poke holes in logic if there's no logic to poke holes in.

Are you pretending to be ignorant? Or are you pretending your audience is ignorant?

What does your theory explain that is not explained by current theory? How can we test it?

What you quoted was in the context of, 'in the beginning'. My universe doesn't start with a tiny ball of stuff.

Pieces of space are in a sense solid, they resist compression but it is their organized motion which makes my screen.

Testable experiment,

If the spaces could not be slightly compressed the speed of light would be instant.

So I recognize your claims as to how nature works. Do you have any quantitative predictions to inspire our confidence in your claims?

No, I most certainly do not.

50 points!

Seriously, though, that should be the end of the thread.

OK.

Logic would dictate that solid matter does not exist, so it starts with nothing. This nothing though, is not true nothing. There is a space, still nothing but not quite.
How does logic dictate this? Explain your reasoning.

Quote:
This space is as small as can be, right next to all the other spaces. One space is the necessity for two, three and the rest. This is happening in an instant, until all the spaces are there.
Define "as small as can be". Define "an instant". Define "all". Justify these assertions.

Quote:
If we treat the spaces like points, the first shape is triangle and the first form is tetrahedron. Space is quantified, arranged in tetrahedral matrix.
Why? Explain your reasoning.

There is no logic in your OP, Nakini, just lots of unsupported assertions.

Creation story or not, I'm proposing that the Aether is quantified space. It is pieces of the smallest space, which make all this possible.

... snipped for brevity ...

I feel like there might be a few questions already. If not, I'll try Magnets next.
If you actually want to be taken seriously, then I suggest that you start by showing that this "Aether" of yours is actually a real thing as opposed to simply stating that this "Aether" of yours is a real thing.

Other than it being a classic example of the bare assertion fallacy, there isn't substance to have holes in.

So when you described your claims as "solves the theory of everything," that was basically a lie in that you haven't actually solved any theory of anything.

Special relativity is a special case of general relativity. The connection between special relativity and general relativity is therefore obvious to anyone who understands the relevant mathematics.

And yet your own assertion involve space combined with time. Are you claiming if your assertions actually constituted a theory you would not be a "fan" of it? How then would you go about refuting it?

Thank-you, I did not know that.



I am not trying to replace any thing, I want to connect special relativity to general relativity.

I'm not saying anything discovered or measured so far is wrong, I just feel trying to work time into the equation is an unnecessary complication.
As an "unnecessary complication" would imply that you are saying it was wrong. Yet you go on and on in your own assertions about space moving, flowing, under tension, being contained and disappearing, pulling, pushing and even being static. All aspects of your consideration of space with time. You seem much more of a de-facto fan of spacetime then you claim.

And yet as part of the electromagnetic force now combined in electroweak theory with the weak nuclear force, itself being a remnant of strong nuclear interactions, thereby combining those three forces in a unified theory. Known as Quantum field theory, which is a Gauge theory.

Electroweak interaction

Quantum field theory

Gauge theory

The pros had that figured out long ago. You're as far from being a pro as myself but you don't even seem to be much of an informed amateur. The loop quantum gravity mentioned above is an attempt to quantify spacetime similar to the quantization of the fields in quantum field theory.

Special relativity is a special case of general relativity. They are intrinsically connected. Surely you would know this?
