Of Rhythm, Sound, and Metric: a Vierbein Representation of Fine Structure of Hydrogen, Spinning String Metric, and Elementary Particles from Excitation of Spacetime

Authors: V. Christianto

While the idea of unification of gravitation and electromagnetic theories via Kaluza-Klein metric is known for decades, there is known disadvantage that 5th dimension is not yet observed in experiments. In the meantime, there are known experiments suggesting analogy between condensed matter physics and various cosmological phenomena, therefore it seems reasonable to expect to observe this 5th dimension via condensed matter physics. However, only few attempts have been made in this direction. In the present article we argue that it is possible to find neat linkage between Kaluza-Klein metric and condensed matter physics via spinning string metric and Aharonov effect. From this viewpoint, elementary particles could be described from excitation of quantized spacetime. We start with alternative description of fine structure of hydrogen in terms of four -velocity (vierbein). An obvious advantage of the alternative interpretation of hydrogen fine structure and spin outlined here is that it could be used to find direct observables, in particular using superfluid experiments. This vierbein representation implies that elementary particles could also be described in terms of phonon metric. Some prediction of elementary particles is also discussed, in particular in the context of Meessen's framework. While for known particles our prediction is essentially similar, for new prediction beyond Standard Model the present article suggests that there is 'shifting' of time- component of the modified-Minkowski metric due to Kaluza-Klein effect. Further observation to verify or refute this proposition is recommended. Other viable observation method is also considered, using Cherenkov radiation. In effect, this proposition of describing elementary particles from excitation of phonon metric seems to support the known condensed- matter analogue of chromodynamics theory with gluonic interaction, albeit from different viewpoint.
