Massive Gravity Illustrated in the Mandelbrot Set (poster)

Authors: Jonathan J. Dickau
Comments: 1 Page. Poster for GR22 session A3 modified theories of gravity (theor.)

The long-range transition to 5-d or higher, seen in DGP gravity, cascading DGP, and some other theories, can be interpreted as a prior epoch or precursor universe. This transition has therefore been proposed to be a black hole in 5-d → 4-d white hole and a spacetime bubble that is our cosmos. The same transition is represented in the Mandelbrot Set at (-0.75,0i), where the cardioid meets the circular disc, mimicking Cartan’s rolling ball analogy for G2 symmetries – when M is extended into higher dimensions. We can therefore study this in an archetypical setting, and it suggests a unique exit from a higher-dimensional origin, which conveniently explains the weakness of gravity and accelerating expansion. Other analogies allow us to discuss graviton properties and phenomenology. Notably the Misiurewicz point at about (-1.543689,0i) represents the quantum critical point in BEC formation, which has been connected to black hole event horizons. A consistent model for gravity with higher-dimensional origins is offered.

Theories of Quantum and Analog Gravity Represented in the Mandelbrot Set (Poster)

Authors: Jonathan J. Dickau
Comments: 1 Page. Poster for GR22 sess. D4 Quan. fields in curved spacetime, semi-Class. grav., Quan. grav. phen., & theor. of analogue grav.

The Mandelbrot Set displays features of the 5-d → 4-d transition in DGP gravity and in theories where a 5-d black hole gives rise to a 4-d white hole and spacetime bubble – which is our present-day cosmos – at (-0.75,0i). The ratio of radii here is 3:1 in imitation of Cartan’s rolling ball analogy for Lie group G2 symmetries. Holographic dualities are displayed across the boundary, linking the quantum mechanics in the precursor universe with the astrophysical realm in the current era, which we discuss. Then we examine the Misiurewicz point at about (-1.543689,0i) where is clearly depicted an analogy of BEC formation and Schwarzschild black hole event horizons, which forms an important part of the analog gravity program. The fact both of these dynamics are displayed in the same object indicates that the theories are not mutually-exclusive and could coexist in nature.

Proving Physics by Making Science Formal

Authors: Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay
Comments: 100 Pages.

We present a mathematical model formalizing the practice of science in nature. The model, which we name formal science, is constructed within the frameworks of algorithmic information theory and that of theoretic computer science. Formal Science is a significant improvement over the informal practice of science as well as a 'clarification tool par excellence' for the foundation of physics, and as such it is able to derive the corpus of physics as a theorem. Formal science reveals that nature and the laws that govern it, far from being arbitrary, are in fact, mathematically extremely special; they are, quite minimally, emergent as the general 'substance' that survives a very specific type of falsification which we will refer to as universal falsification. After we present the model, we then begin the long program to derive all known physics using formal science as the sound, free of physical baggage, mathematical foundation of physics.

Discrete Motives for Moonshine

Authors: M. D. Sheppeard
Comments: 35 Pages.

From the holographic perspective in quantum gravity, topological field theories like Chern-Simons are more than toy models for computation. An algebraic construction of the CFT associated to Witten's j-invariant for 2+1 dimensional gravity aims to compute coefficients of modular forms from the combinatorics of quantum logic, dictated by axioms in higher dimensional categories, with heavy use of the golden ratio. This paper is self contained, including introductory material on lattices, and aims to show how the Monster group and its infinite module arise when the automorphisms of the Leech lattice are extended by special point sets in higher dimensions, notably the 72 dimensional lattice of Nebe.

The Conception of Time

Authors: Stephen H. Jarvis
Comments: 21 Pages.

In this paper, a follow-on from papers 1-9 [1-9], the idea of consciousness as a feature of the process itself of scientific inquiry shall come to attention; here, as per the previous papers and in alliance with contemporary notions of the idea of consciousness and time, the idea of “consciousness” shall be presented as the ideal “fixed” frame of reference with time, going a step beyond the concept both Descartes and Einstein assumed in their works as a requirement of scientific theory genesis for the ideas of time and space, and above all “our required ability to exercise certain conscious functions to fully utilise the associated theory of time and space”. Ultimately, this proposed model of consciousness shall be demonstrated to not only abide with contemporary models of consciousness and thought, yet take those ideas a step ahead, as much as the new theory for time and space presented here as the golden ratio algorithm for time is being considered as a step ahead of contemporary ideas in physics. The aim here is not to change the impetus of our thinking, our philosophizing, or our world-view, yet to assess how a new theory of time and space aligns with a new ability, a new exercise of our conscious ability, to achieve that ability, to theorize time and space anew, as a step ahead of what has been previously thought possible in defining not just time, yet that tagged reference to time as consciousness.

Division By Zero: The Solution to Everything

Authors: Thomas Denley
Comments: 1 Page.

People have been adhering too rigidly to rules to divide by zero. Their calculators display it as undefined. The calculators were programmed by humans who did not yet understand what division by zero means.

Expanding Universe from Weyl Cosmology and Asymptotic Safety in Quantum Gravity

Authors: Carlos Castro
Comments: 19 Pages.

A study of the simplest Jordan-Brans-Dicke-like action within the context of Weyl geometry, combined with the findings of Weinberg’s Asymptotic Safety program in quantum gravity, leads to a plethora of nice numerical results : (i) like singling out the quartic potential from all the others; (ii) having (Anti) de Sitter space as the most natural solution; (iii) furnishing the value of the observed vacuum energy density at the Hubble scale (3/8 pi G_N R_H^2) ~ 10^{−122} M_P^4 ; (iv) and a value of {3/8 pi) M^4_P for the vacuum energy density at the Planck scale; (v) interpreting the “Bang” of the Big Bang as the singularity of the Weyl gauge field of dilations at t = 0 ushering in the era of inflation, and (vi) allowing the possibility that our universe is a Black Hole whose horizon coincides with the cosmological Hubble horizon. It is warranted to explore deeper the interplay among Weyl geometry, Asymptotic safety and Maldacena’s AdS/CFT correspondence (holographic renormalization group flow). Also relevant is the work by Wetterich on the role of dilatation symmetry in higher dimensions and the vanishing of the cosmological constant. Last, but not least, we should also consider the implications of Penrose’ Conformal Cyclic Cosmology and Nottale’s Scale Relativity Theory with the key findings of this work.

Quantitative Gravity Transverse Spatial Vibration of Dimensions

Authors: Yasser alsharif
Comments: 5 Pages.

I am talking about the vibrating position of the spatial dimensions of the Planck length scale. The speed of the light is affected by this vibration. It is also transmitted through it, also how gravity is weak and how the velocity of Blanc's vibration affects the mass so that this mass absorbs this direction to create an opposite gravity towards it.

Quantized Space-Time and the Quantized Multiverse

Authors: Eran Sinbar
Comments: 2 Pages.

The many world interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, the extra dimensions of string theory, the unexplained entanglement in quantum theory, the mysterious dark energy and dark matter, all link together to the possibility that our three dimension universe is not the entire picture and that we need to find an improved model of space time that can deal with these new concepts. This paper will suggest a new way of looking at our three-dimension universe.

Photons and Independent E/m Waves

Authors: Michael Tzoumpas
Comments: 8 Pages.

The independent E/M waves are created, during the electron oscillations at an emission antenna. These waves do not compose the constant photon length, in contrast to the fundamental E/M waves of photon. Additionally, the Compton phenomenon is interpreted, while the atomic orbitals are standing waves the self-superposition of the motion wave of electrons.

The Physics Chimera

Authors: Stephen H. Jarvis
Comments: 18 Pages.

In this paper the Standard Model of physics shall be examined for harbouring what can be demonstrated to be a faulty definition for space, a chimera, which has prevented physics from joining electromagnetism with gravity as theoretical and physical field driven entities. This chimera will be exposed to be “inertia”, which has led to absurd conclusions in ultimate equations of field forces across the expanse of space, most notably the need for dark energy and dark matter. An alternative approach in replace of this chimera is proposed, as a new concept for time examining bodies in motion, namely the idea of time as “the” most fundamental concept, and not space as it has been assumed as a field of inertial potential, from which a golden ratio “scaling system” for time shall calculated, making the the idea of space evident as emergent from the dimension of time, and most importantly describe how time behaves as light in regard to space. Upon that emergent space, a list of all the features derived from the golden ratio algorithm shall be once again brought to attention as per the previous papers [1-8] in being married up with known observed physical data. Such a process of examination shall highlight the fundamental failure of the idea of “inertia” in physical equations of bodies in space, and expose those equations as the “chimera” of modern-day physics.
