Speculation on a Unified Field Theory (UFT), Grand Unification Theories (GUT) and Supersymmetry and Superstring Theories

Authors: Richard L Amoroso, Elizabeth A Rauscher

The search for a comprehensive theory of the Universe, i.e. a theory of everything (TOE) has been the desire and attempted fulfillment throughout history. In this chapter, we cannot give a comprehensive description of this unfolding story but will present some of the lights from our perspective and particularly that of (EAR) from her Lawrence Berkeley National laboratory (LBNL) days when she was a graduate student and then a staff member in the Nuclear Science and Department of Theoretical Physics. She was one of the very few staff members, not only interested in particle physics, general relativity, astrophysics and cosmology, but also the nature of consciousness. Both of us have a passion to ken the Universe, which clearly includes conscious sentient beings. Here we address the issues in unified field theories that relate to our work in this volume on multidimensional geometries and their relationship to describing nonlocal, nonlinear, anticipatory phenomena. One of our motivations is to include a domain for the action and participation of the conscious observer and consciousness in general. The process of scientific discovery involves observation, data systemization and theoretical hypothesis and formulation about the observed data. The process of experimental examination and theoretical hypothesis and further tests of these concepts, leads to the development of scientific rules or laws.

Major Principles of Physics: Poincaré Invariance, Analyticity, Unitarity and Complex Minkowski Space

Authors: Richard L Amoroso, Elizabeth A Rauscher
Comments: 6 Pages. https://doi.org/10.1142/9789814324250_0003

The principles of modern physics can be stated in terms of Poincairé invariance, or the homogeneity of spacetime analyzability or causality and unitarity or the conservation of probability. Essentially all theories of physics must obey these principles.

Nonlocal Interconnectedness as a Fundamental Principle of Reality

Authors: Richard L Amoroso, Elizabeth A Rauscher
Comments: 20 Pages. https://doi.org/10.1142/9789814324250_0004

Two significant principles of the 20th century are the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the nonlocality principles of the Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen paradox [1]. Both these elements of quantum theory have major physical and philosophical implicatio like Bell’s Theorem and Space-Like Interconnect-edness and Other Collective Coherent Phenomena Involve nonlocality. We also present a discussion of the EPR paradox and other experiments that may demand a nonlocal explanation of the phenomenon they display.

La Cosmologie Moderne :Une Déviation Intellectuelle Majeure

Authors: Francis M. Sanchez
Comments: 32 Pages. published by CEP (Center of Prospective study) n° 78-79 (March-June 2017), and Bulletin de l'académie Internationale Concorde (2018) review (2018).

The basic Cosmos concept is wiped out in our epoch, contrary to old traditions. The main cosmic phenomena, the galactic recession shows up a length, not a time as widely professed, which is related, via a canonical factor 2, to three main fundamental constants, the light celerity being excluded : three minutes of a mandatory elementary calculation leads to this Observable Universe radius 13.812 milliards light-years. Now the official cosmology says that the Universe age is precisely 13.8 milliards years. The two approaches are concordant, but, as fundamental constants are time-invariant, this excludes the Primordial Big Bang, replacing it by a Permanent Bang, a matter-antimatter oscillation at frequency 10^104 Hz. Modern mathematics have not recognized the Eddington's number as fundamental, while ancient Egypt has represented its decomposition 137 = 3 + 7 + 127, the Catalan-Mersenne series, in the Hypostyle Room of the Amon temple in Karnak. The following term 2^127 gives back the above Universe radius, with the unity for which the Bohr radius is about 137 : the electron wavelength. The couple electron-positron is so the basis of all, as predicted by the forgotten Eddington's statistical Fundamental Theory.

History of the paper "Towards a More Well-Founded Cosmology"

Authors: Hartmut Traunmüller
Comments: 12 Pages.

Scientific journals do not normally publish any paper that directly discredits the currently accepted doctrine within their field, no matter how wrong it is. This is because referees can easily identify deviations from current doctrine and established practice, while it requires a higher intellectual effort to assimilate a new point of view and to follow a non-traditional path of reasoning. Referees naturally tend to avoid this extra effort. Students, researchers and editors are aware of this and so are likely to choose a mode of action that does not threaten their own carrier. Thus, they prefer to follow the mainstream. These circumstances are apt to preclude fundamental progress in science for long periods of time. This is merely a case study about the history of a paper that illustrates this problem.

Response to the FQXi RFP: Agency in the Physical World

Authors: Peter Cameron, Michaele Suisse
Comments: 2 Pages.

To bring scientific rigor to FQXi challenges[1] is the greatest challenge. Given the diverse community and vexing manner in which our organizers delight in framing issues, prevalent absence of rigor follows. Yet a substantial subset of the community is comprised of physicists, with no obvious tightening there of reason’s web. We have two immediate interests. First is to make our work accessible to larger communities, to focus on the theoretical minimum, on quantum interpretations as applied to the geometric wavefunction, to express geometric wavefunction physics in languages of most closely related disciplines. To function as interpreters[11]. Second is quantum impedance matching in nanoelectonics, beyond scale invariant quantum Hall impedance of vector Lorentz forces to those associated with all forces and their potentials. It appears the present status in that community is black art. Nobody knows what they’re doing. Impedance governs amplitude and phase of energy flow. One has to quantum impedance match if one wants to quantum compute effectively. This is just common sense.
