(Un)Naturalness, Explained

Of Particular Significance

This week I’m in California, at a conference celebrating two famous professors, from whom I learned an enormous amount when I was a graduate student and postdoctoral researcher. More on this later in the week.

Today, I just want to let you know I have completed the core of my naturalness article, which I began writing a couple of weeks ago.

A First Stab at Explaining “Naturalness”

The Need for Understanding Naturalness

Of Particular Significance

Arguably the two greatest problems facing particle physicists, cosmologists, string theorists, and the like are both associated with an apparent failure of a notion called “naturalness”.  Until now, I’ve mostly avoided this term on this site, because to utter the word demands an extended explanation.  After all, how could nature be unnatural, by definition?

Well, the answer is that the word “natural” has multiple meanings.  The one that scientists are using in this context isn’t “having to do with nature” but rather “typical” or “as expected” or “generic”, as in, “naturally the baby started screaming when she bumped her head”, or “naturally it costs more to live near the city center”, or “I hadn’t worn those glasses in months, so naturally they were dusty.”  And unnatural is when the baby doesn’t scream, when the city center is cheap, and when the glasses are pristine. Usually, when something unnatural happens…

BICEP2: New Evidence Of Cosmic Inflation!

Of Particular Significance

[For your reference if you can’t follow this post: My History of the Universe, and a primer to help you understand what’s going on today.]

I’m still updating this post as more information comes in and as I understand more of what’s in the BICEP2 paper and data.

Here’s BICEP2’s data!  The black dots at the bottom of this figure, showing evidence of B-mode polarization both at small scales (“Multipole” >> 100, where it is due to gravitational lensing of E-mode polarization) and at large scales (“Multipole” << 100, where it is potentially due to gravitational waves from a period of cosmic inflation preceding the Hot Big Bang.) All the other dots on the figure are from other experiments, including the original BICEP, which only put upper bounds on how big the B-mode polarization could be.  So all the rest of the points are previous non-detections.

From the BICEP2 paper. From the BICEP2…

General Thoughts About Schuman Response

The Tesla coil wireless transmitter

U.S. Patent 1,119,732

There might have been some confusion around what was implied here with regard to BB’s(Binaural Beats) and the affective causation suggested by what I see as  inherent on a global level with regard to consciousness.I wrote,” While it is of
biological significance the BB’s are in question here as one might
wonder about schumann response on a global level.

The first documented observations of global electromagnetic resonance were made by Nikola Tesla
at his Colorado Springs laboratory in 1899. This observation led to
certain conclusions about the electrical properties of the Earth, and
which made the basis for his idea for wireless energy transmission.[6]

I mentioned  “the principal” as to imply historical content as to the idea of resource management attributions when it came to the realization that capital could be induced by fragmentation and allotting packets. These as salable items to the general public. This application,  is the basis of some of my complaints about what was already inherent and free in society. It only became a product once it was thought to being compartmentalize.

 With wireless power, efficiency is the more significant parameter. A
large part of the energy sent out by the generating plant must arrive at
the receiver or receivers to make the system economical

In this sense, electrical generation, other then use of wire transmission, was at the time, the only means as to the metering capable of being sold as a packet.

1904 image of Wardenclyffe Tower located in Shoreham, Long Island, New York. The 94 by 94 ft (29 m) brick building was designed by architect Stanford White.[1]
PURPOSE: To show the two-dimensional standing waves on the surface of a square or circular plate.

If we had seen and understood the early formation that begins with the understanding that all human beings are cross-wired before they modulate their existence within the framework of the reality. As given then,  one must assume such modulation is a frequency for the idea for such matters? 

 See: Cymatics and the Heart Song 

Now before I begin here I want t share some understanding of the chaldni plates had one ever come across them,  as to imply that such resonances are activators for the current patterns inherent in the structure that one might see as demonstrated by bow, string and metal plate.

Herein too, I also supply the idea that there is “the agent,”  an affective idea that materialized from one of my journeys,  as to a time where effective polymerization “could have have been used” to set associative responses in the architecture of buildings. These were to correlate in the idea of this “harmonization structure” as seen as in BB’s  choice entrainment,  as brain wave matter states.

Cell-Phone Technology

While considering transmission towers, the idea of energy being used to power has it’s basis in the use of antenna to help boost the signal.

While this application is separate from the idea and use of electrical transmission,  it is of consequence that such companies in the use of their “fractal antennas” have specific frequencies with which they operate? Customers that are satisfied according to the plans you use.

If there was a consideration of the White Space that was free for our use in the television broadcasting system,  why was it not mandated that the public remain as a top priority in the access to information as a free and viable enhancement to our knowledge base?

Access to books in the electric medium, as one would walk to the local library? Google,  it was a good plan.

Now in order to get to our local library,  transportation has been divvied up,  even to the ether as a viable means of charging for such transport.  It should have been a given that such pathways are and must remain a viable source of knowledge enhancement for the public and it’s rise above the current constrictions that society has been contained too, by rulings of the international body on the internet?

Lubos, this is also for you just so you know where I am coming from. It is really not that scary once you’ve figured it out. You don’t have to be a communist as to figure that what you can do as a scientist for the public is as if taken the oath as a medical doctor to do all you can do for your patient/individual in society. This is but to help bring society into the state of awareness that knowledge could lift any of us out of our ignorance.

It’s Final Endgame for GRAIL’s Twin Spacecraft

The mountain where the two spacecraft will make contact is located near a
crater named Goldschmidt. Both spacecraft have been flying in formation
around the moon since Jan. 1, 2012. They were named by elementary
school students in Bozeman, Mont., who won a contest. The first probe to
reach the moon, Ebb, also will be the first to go down, at 2:28:40 p.m.
PST. Flow will follow Ebb about 20 seconds later.

GRAIL’s Final Resting Spot
These maps of Earth’s moon highlight the region where the twin
spacecraft of NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL)
mission will impact on Dec. 17, marking the end of its successful
endeavor to map the moon’s gravity. The two washing-machine-sized
spacecraft, named Ebb and Flow, will impact at an unnamed mountain near
the moon’s North Pole.

These maps are from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

See 21-23 January 2013 CERN

The primary goal of this 3‐day workshop is to educate the LHC community about the scientific utility of likelihoods. We shall do so by describing and discussing several real‐world examples of the use of likelihoods, including a one‐day in‐depth examination of likelihoods in the Higgs boson studies by ATLAS and CMS.

The workshop will start with two pedagogical lectures that introduce likelihood concepts and terminology. These lectures are followed, in the afternoon of Day 1, by a moderated discussion that focuses on the concepts and issues raised in the lectures. Day 1 ends with several presentations that illustrate the use of likelihoods in Higgs and Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) research. The goal here is to get feedback from researchers who have used Higgs and BSM results in their work.See: Likelihood for the LHC Searches
