FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM in Quantum FFF THEORY.
The FORM and MICROSTRUCTURE of elementary particles, is supposed to be the origin of FUNCTIONAL
differences between Higgs- Graviton- Photon- and Fermion particles. As a consequence, a NEW
splitting and pairing MASSLESS BLACK HOLE, able to convert vacuum energy into real energy by
entropy decrease, seems to be able to explain the cyclic Big Bang, quick Galaxy- and Star
formation, down to Sunspots, Comets, Ball Lightning and even Ice Volcanoes on Titan.
Five posters are presented in this paper, as an quick overview of the former letters submitted to viXra.

Nonassociative Octonionic Ternary Gauge Field Theories are revisited
paving the path to an analysis of the many physical applications of Exceptional
Jordan Strings/Membranes and Octonionic Gravity. The old
octonionic gravity constructions based on the split octonion algebra Os
(which strictly speaking is not a division algebra) is extended to the full
fledged octonion division algebra O. A real-valued analog of the
Einstein-Hilbert Lagrangian L = R involving sums of all the possible contractions
of the Ricci tensors plus their octonionic-complex conjugates is presented.
A discussion follows of how to extract the Standard Model group (the
gauge fields) from the internal part of the octonionic gravitational connection.
The role of Exceptional Jordan algebras, their automorphism
and reduced structure groups which play the roles of the rotation and
Lorentz groups is also re-examined. Finally, we construct (to our knowledge)
generalized novel octonionic string and p-brane actions and raise
the possibility that our generalized 3-brane action (based on a quartic
product) in octonionic flat backgrounds of 7, 8 octonionic dimensions may
display an underlying E7,E8 symmetry, respectively. We conclude with
some final remarks pertaining to the developments related to Jordan exceptional
algebras, octonions, black-holes in string theory and quantum
information theory.

We investigate the string configuration that, in the framework of the theoretical scenario introduced
in [1], corresponds to the most entropic configuration in the phase space of all the
configurations of the universe. This describes a universe with four space-time dimensions,
and the physical content is phenomenologically compatible with the experimental observations
and measurements. Everything is determined in terms of the age of the universe, with
no room for freely-adjustable parameters. We discuss how one obtains the known spectrum
of particles and interactions, with massive neutrinos, no Higgs boson, and supersymmetry
broken at the Planck scale. Besides the computation of masses and couplings, CKM matrix
elements, cosmological constant, expansion parameters of the universe etc..., all resulting,
within the degree of the approximation we used, in agreement with the experimental observations,
we also discuss how this scenario passes the tests provided by cosmology and the
constraints imposed by the physics of the primordial universe.

Formulae for the masses of elementary particles obtained with guessing
are presented in the article. A derivation, which tries to physically interpret these
formulae, was also made afterward. Said simplified, it is obtained that particle masses
are varying quickly that they are mainly zero and sometimes roughly equal to Planckian
mass, while we, as measurers, measure a particle mass only as a time average. Then the
arguments, why it is possible that those formulae are not contradictory with known
physical facts, and why it is necessary that something like should exist to describe
the masses of elementary particles, are listed. The formulae and models are realistic
according to the known physics. It is shown also an example which can be verified
with a statistical analysis. Some findings are shown, which can survive although maybe
formulae will not survive.

Quantum FFF (Function Follows Form) theory states, that the vacuum is seeded with fast oscillating massless Higgs particles, oscillating along a complex chiral tetrahedral vacuum lattice, which has the ability to transfer Photon and Graviton information in bunches of oscillations, through the vacuum lattice with the local speed of light.
As a consequence there are no attraction forces on propeller shaped Fermions.
Only the sum of the different kinds of vacuum impulses by zero point Casimir effects in combination with the local vacuum oscillation spectrum coming from all directions on Fermions are responsible for all energetic phenomena in the universe.
As a consequence New physics will be needed and the introduction of Quantum based monopole radiation fields like the electric and magnetic fields.
The gravity of Black Holes is assumed to be based on the zero point oscillation spectrum only without the opposing repulsive gravitons. Black holes don’t emit gravitons because according to Q-FFF theory, they are massless and harbour a nucleus of massless Higgs alike Quantum knots only able to absorb the incoming oscillating vacuum particles.

We investigate the most general "phase space" of configurations, consisting of all possible
ways of assigning elementary attributes, "energies", to elementary positions, "cells". We discuss
how this space possesses structures that can be approximated by a quantum-relativistic
physical scenario. In particular, we discuss how the Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and
a universe with a three-dimensional space arise, and what kind of mechanics rules it. String
Theory shows up as a complete representation of this structure in terms of time-dependent
fields and particles. Within this context, owing to the uniqueness of the underlying mathematical
structure it represents, one can also prove the uniqueness of string theory.
