The Universe as a Computer Philosophical Speculations on Additional Similarities.

Authors: Tariq Khan
Comments: 3 Pages.

“And when I have understanding of them, I shall have understanding of computers. And when I have understanding of computers, I shall be the Supreme Being!” --Time Bandits Here it is as if our Universe "pulls the curtain" to prevent any observer from seeing a processing "abort" or "runtime error" or, in essence, the processing might stop and we have our information washed out into a black hole boundary – or perhaps our Universe simply crashes behind the curtain of the black hole. It is as if the Universe cannot keep-up, so it removes all those relationships and removes it from the "video screen" of any possible observer. It throws up a boundary curtain - an event horizon of a black hole. But we remain consistent and there exists no "beyond" our Universe's processor rate capability...... In essence, this could provide the "why" answer to the existence of a constant speed of light as it might literally represent the maximum limit or rate that our Universe boundary can process changes in information related to the state and relationships of every particle and wormhole (quantum entanglement). In short, the fastest that our 2-D holographic boundary can process this "information" (that is measured by an observer, so it must be consistent) is the speed of light.

Metaphysics and Human Life

Authors: Kiyoung Kim
Comments: 11 Pages.

The ontological interpretation of physical vacuum and its interactions in physical phenomena was initiated to understand the quantum philosophy or the reality matter in quantum mechanics, at the beginning; however, it must be a different worldview from any metaphysical view that used to be in philosophy, and thus, it affects on all branches of academic studies and human activities in general. Especially, the ontological interpretation of soul, such as what it is, how it interacts with its own living physical body and external physical objects, and so on, should have an influence on the basic human values and principles, which makes human life improved ultimately with a firm philosophical base.

The Conceptual Fallacy at the Heart of Big Bang Cosmology

Authors: Anton Biermans
Comments: 101 Pages.

If when there would only be a single electrically charged particle in the universe, it cannot express its charge in interactions, it cannot be charged itself, then charge –any property, for that matter– must be something which lives within particle interactions. If we cannot escape the conclusion that particles, particle properties must be as much the cause as the effect of their interactions, then their communication –the exchange of energy, information– must be instantaneous: not over any space distance but over any spacetime distance –which is something else entirely. Similarly, if by definition there’s nothing outside the universe, not even space nor time, nothing relative to which it can be said to exist, interact with to express its properties, then it cannot have particular properties, be in some particular state as a whole, nor can it be said to have a beginning, a definite age. To say that it does comes down to saying that there is something outside of it relative to which it exists, interacts with, to which it owes its properties: that it has been created by some outside intervention. If, as in big bang cosmology, we conceive of the universe as an ordinary object which has particular properties and at any time is in some particular state as a whole as seen from within, then it also has such properties and is in such state as ‘seen’ from without –quote marks on seen as there is no space nor time outside of it for an observer to be in and look, as if over God’s shoulders, at His creation from the outside. As the universe only can be in some particular state as a whole if it is the same time, if time passes at the same pace everywhere, big bang cosmology states that universe lives in a time continuum not of its own making, that time passes even outside of it. If conservation laws insist that what comes out of nothing must add to nothing –like the sum of all debts and credits on Earth is and remains zero– so the universe cannot have particular properties, be in any particular state as a whole as ‘seen’ from the outside, then it also cannot have such properties, be in any particular state as a whole as seen from within. As the universe has no external reality but only exists as seen from within so doesn’t live in a time realm not of its own making but contains, produces all time inside of it, clocks cannot be observed to run at the same pace at all distances even when at rest relative to the observer. While big bang cosmology assumes that there is a universe-wide ‘now’ all objects and observers live in so we can speak about the past, present and future of the universe; as a selfcreating universe has no external reality but only exists as seen from within, here past, present and future are relative, local notions. If the energy of particles is cause and effect of their interactions, then its transmission must be instant over any spacetime distance –agreeing with relativity theory according to which from the point of view of the photon, its transmission is instantaneous. If entanglement experiments showing that the communication between particles is instant aren’t understood as they seem to violate the law which says that nothing goes faster than light, then that is because big bang cosmology has mislead us into believing that we live in a universe where it is the same time, where time passes at the same pace everywhere –as a result of which we came to conceive of light as something which moves through space, in time, the universe growing older as it travels. As there is no universe-wide now in a selfcreating and the communication between particles is instant over any spacetime distance, here the speed of light, while obviously a limit to the velocity objects can move at, doesn’t so much refer to the motion of light but rather to a property of spacetime. This study shows that if there is one thing which completely blocks the progress of physics –the unification of forces, of general relativity with quantum mechanics or why quantum mechanics works– then is the embarrassing naïve, medievally outdated hodgepodge of far-fetched ad hoc assumptions, absurdities and contradictions called big bang cosmology, which has nothing to do with science but everything with religion.

Ideas Through Experimental Physics

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 97 Pages.

Even the most brilliant scientific ideas need data. Just this year, the first-ever image of a black hole finally provided the evidence needed to support Einstein's 100-year-old theories. [57] EPFL researchers, with colleagues at the University of Cambridge and IBM Research-Zurich, unravel novel dynamics in the interaction between light and mechanical motion with significant implications for quantum measurements designed to evade the influence of the detector in the notorious 'back action limit' problem. [56] We don't have to get into what they claimed was the mechanism for destroying interference, because our experiment has shown there is an effect on the velocity of the particle, of just the size Heisenberg predicted. [55] Physicists have proposed an entirely new way to test the quantum superposition principle-the idea that a quantum object can exist in multiple states at the same time. [54] Researchers have developed a new device that can measure and control a nanoparticle trapped in a laser beam with unprecedented sensitivity. [53] Researchers have discovered a 'blind spot' in atomic force microscopy-a powerful tool capable of measuring the force between two atoms, imaging the structure of individual cells and the motion of biomolecules. [52] Australian scientists have investigated new directions to scale up qubits-utilising the spin-orbit coupling of atom qubits-adding a new suite of tools to the armory. [51]
