Relativity and Cosmology


Is Nature Fundamentally Continuous or Discrete, and How Can These Two Different But Very Useful Conceptions be Fully Reconciled? (Expanded Version)

Authors: A. Beckwith

Our contention, is that reality is actually analog, but that at a critical limit, as when the Octonian gravity condition kicks in, that for a time it is made to appear discrete. This due to an initial phase transition just at the start of the big bang. Our second consideration is, that symmetry breaking models, i.e. the Higgs boson are in themselves not appropriate or necessary for the formation of particles with mass just before Octonionic gravity which could arise in pre Planckian physics models without a potential. Finally, that the necessity of potentials for pre Octonionic gravity physics can be circumvented via judicious use of Sherrer k essence physics.
