The Mind, Intergalactic Space, and Phi

Authors: Jeffrey S. Keen
Comments: 16 pages, 12 Figures, 5 Tables.

Although counter-intuitive, many published papers have proved that scientific experiments are affected by the act of observation, as well as the mind being affected by local astronomical forces and factors, such as gravity, electromagnetism, spin, and orientation. This paper details the ability of the mind to filter out all of these local factors, and visualise experiments as if they were being undertaken in intergalactic space. In order to undertake this research both the mind and quantitative observation are required. As dowsing involves both it was adopted. The physical dimensions of simple geometric shapes were measured to compare to the dimensions of the same geometric shapes perceived "mentally" by the body's senses. Global scaling has been demonstrated in these laboratory conditions with simple equations obeying power laws that involve the universal constant phi (f) and no arbitrary constants. Examples are d = 0.5 * L ^ φ /2, Smax = 2 . r ^ φ, and a = φ * r ^ √φ. These formulae cannot be random results. The implications are (1) that phi forms part of the structure of space-time, (2) the important quantified discovery that the mind can interface with the fundamentals of space-time and the cosmos. The latter concept supports ancient Eastern philosophy, although it is alien to traditional western science.

A Note on the Quantization Mechanism Within the Cold Big Bang Cosmology

Authors: Armando V.D.B. Assis
Comments: 2 pages.

In my paper [3], I obtain a Cold Big Bang Cosmology, fitting the cosmological data, with an absolute zero primordial temperature, a natural cutoff for the cosmological data to a vanishingly small entropy at a singular microstate of a comoving domain of the cosmological fluid. This solution resides on a negative pressure solution from the general relativity field equation and on a postulate regarding a Heisenberg indeterminacy mechanism related to the energy fluctuation obtained from the solution of the field equations under the Robertson-Walker comoving elementar line element context in virtue of the adoption of the Cosmological Principle. In this paper, we see the, positive, differential energy fluctuation, purely obtained from the general relativity cosmological solution in [3], leads to the quantum mechanical argument of the postulate in [3], provided this energy fluctuation is quantized, strongly supporting the postulate in [3]. I discuss the postulate in [3], showing the result for the energy fluctuation follows from a discreteness hypothesis.

Gravitomagnetics, a Simpler Appraoch Applied to Rotating Bodies

Authors: H. Ron Harrison
Comments: 5 pages.

In reference [1] the basics of the new approach are outlined but in this paper more details are given where the method is applied to rotating bodies. Application to single bodies is often referred to as the de Sitter effect and when applied to rotating bodies it is known as the Lense-Thirring effect. This new approach gives the same form of result as the generally accepted equations but with a different factor for the Lense-Thirring effect. This variation is discussed.

A Better Look at the Michelson/morley Experiment

Authors: Roald C. Maximo
Comments: 5 pages.

For over a century, the elusive nature of the outcome of the M/M experiment has baffled generations of physicists from all around the world. Indeed, the analysis has revealed some subtleties. I have already, for some time, had, intuitively, all the pieces of the puzzle in my mind but didn't know how to correctly join them. I tried twice without success but now, everything leads me to believe I could finally assemble the whole picture. So, I go back to the subject in a detailed way that seems to me absolutely clear and unambiguous.

A Lagrangian Which Models Lambda CDM Cosmology and Explains the Null Results of Direct Detection Efforts.

Authors: Hontas Freeman Farmer
Comments: 10 Pages. This paper will be presented at the April 2014 APS conference http://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/APR14/Session/U15.7

The purpose of this paper is to reconcile observations of dark matter effects on the galactic and cosmological scales with the null results of astroparticle physics observations such as CDMS and ANTARES. This paper will also provide a candidate unified and simpler mathematical formulation for the Lambda CDM model. Unification is achieved by a combination of the f(R) approach, with the standard LCDM approach and inflationary models. It is postulated that dark matter-energy fields depend on the Ricci curvature R. Standard methods of classical and quantum field theory on curved space time are applied. When this model is treated as a quantum field theory in curved space-time, the dark matter-dark matter fermion annihilation cross section grows as the square of the Ricci scalar. It is proposed and mathematically demonstrated that in this model dark matter particles could have shorter lifetimes in regions of relatively strong gravity such as near the sun, near the Earth, or any other large mass. The unexpected difficulties in directly observing fermionic particles of dark matter in Earth based observatories are explained by this theory. The gravitational field of the Sun and Earth may effect them in ways the standard WIMP models would never predict.

What the Null Energy Condition (And When it May be Violated) Tells us About Gravitational Wave Frequencies in / for Relic Cosmology?

Authors: A Beckwith
Comments: 22 pages, accepted for publication by JMP for August to October, i.e. it is in their pool of to be published papers. 1 table.

We introduce a criterion as to the range of HFGW generated by early universe conditions. The 1 to 10 Giga Hertz range is constructed initially starting with what Grupen writes as far as what to expect of GW frequencies which can be detected assuming a sensitivity of h ~ 10-27 . From there we examine the implications of an earlier Hubble parameter at the start of inflation, and a phase transition treatment of pre to post Planckian inflation physics via use of inflatons.. We close with an analysis of how gravitational constant G may vary with time, the tie in with the NEC condition and how to select a range of relic GW frequencies. The gravitational frequencies in turn may enable resolving a mis match between the datum that the entropy of the center of the galaxy black hole is greater than the entropy of the present four dimensional universe as we can infer and measure.

New Insights into the Special Theory of Relativity

Authors: Amrit S. Sorli, Dusan Klinar, Davide Fiscaletti
Comments: 11 Pages.

In the 20th century, physics has understood space and time as being coupled into a "spacetime" manifold, a fundamental arena in which everything takes place. Space-time was considered to have three spatial dimensions and one temporal dimension. Out of the mathematical formalism for the fourth space-time component X4 = ict one can conclude that time t is only a numerical order of material change, i.e., the motion that we obtain with clocks. Time is not a 4th dimension of space. For the description of the Special Theory of Relativity it is here proposed an Minkowski 4D space whilst time t is merely a numerical order of a photon motion in a 4D space. This view opens new perspectives on the understanding of the quantum entanglement, where the 4D space becomes an immediate medium for quantum communication.

What Effect Does a Spinning Sun Have on the Advance of Mercury's Perihelion?: a Comment on Arxiv:1106.1568

Authors: Ron Bourgoin
Comments: 3 Pages.

Mercury precesses 5600 seconds of arc per century. Newtonian celestial mechanics accounts for only 5557 arc seconds, leaving a discrepancy of 43". In 1859, Urbain Le Verrier, considering all the perturbations in the solar system, wrestled only 35 arc seconds more beyond the 1557". Had he thought about the effect of a spinning sun on Mercury's orbit, he would have gained another 6 arc seconds, for a total of 41", only 2.3% shy of General Relativity's calculation.

Energy, Momentum, Mass and Velocity of a Moving Body

Authors: Sergey G. Fedosin
Comments: 24 Pages.

In the weak-field approximation of covariant theory of gravitation the problem of 4/3 is formulated for internal and external gravitational fields of a body in the form of a ball. The dependence of the energy and the mass of the moving substance on the energy of field accompanying the substance, as well as the dependence on the characteristic size of the volume occupied by the substance are described. Additives in the energy and the momentum of the body, defined by energy and momentum of the gravitational and electromagnetic fields associated with the body are explicitly calculated. The conclusion is made that the energy and the mass of the body can be described by the energy of ordinary and strong gravitation, and through the energies of electromagnetic fields of particles that compose the body.

Inconsistency of the Beckwith Entropy Formula

Authors: Lukasz Andrzej Glinka
Comments: 5 pages, Prespacetime Journal 2(5), pp.733-736 (May 2011)

In my recent paper [1] published by Prespacetime Journal I discussed certain consequences of the entropy formula presented by A.W. Beckwith and his coauthors [2]. The main result of the deductions were bonons and the inflaton constant. However, I now consider the Beckwith entropy formula to be wrong, and deductions based on this relation can therefore be at most half-true. In this brief paper the right way to deduce the entropy formula is concisely discussed, the results obtained previously are revised, and certain new results are presented.
