Cyclic Universe Could Explain Cosmological Constant

Thanks Paul for pointing this article out here some time ago. Physicists have proposed several theories to explain why Λ is so small. One of the most popular — the “anthropic principle” — states that Λ is randomly set and … Continue reading

What is the False Vacuum?

Quantum Field Theory Quantum Vacuum: In classical physics, empty space is called the vacuum. The classical vacuum is utterly featureless. However, in quantum theory, the vacuum is a much more complex entity. The uncertainty principle allows virtual particles (each corresponding … Continue reading

Emergence: A Point in Spacetime

We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding out that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.” – Sir Arthur Eddington (1882-1944) Foundational perspectives are … Continue reading

Clifford and The Singularity

Horatiu is referring to a mathematical similarity between the physics of the real world, which govern RHIC collisions, and the physics that scientists use to describe a theoretical, “imaginary” black hole in a hypothetical world with a different number of … Continue reading

Gold and Fool’s Gold

Gold Perhaps the highest density known is reached in neutron star matter (see neutronium). The singularity at the centre of a black hole, according to general relativity, does not have any volume, so its density is undefined. The most dense … Continue reading

GRand Quantum Conjecture

My continued looked into the “fluids dynamics” had me wonder about the superfluid anomalies. How would the “sphere look” if it collapsed and allowed information to travel through it, based on what has been given here for perspective, when the … Continue reading

THEORETICAL MATHEMATICS

Before I was to ask the question below I had gone through the links given by Alejandro RIvero and in and thinking of the work I had been doing to understand this relation between mathematics and the physics world. Of … Continue reading

Nodes and Anti-nodes

Tool’s for measure. The center of the gyroscope is a jewel-like sphere of fused quartz. These spheres, the size of Ping-Pong balls, are the roundest objects ever made by man. The tiny spheres are enclosed inside a housing chamber to … Continue reading

Have we seen (strange) quark matter?

Well the very idea that such a thing could exist, has been part of the evolving information I had been going through. To be lead to the understanding, of what new Physics would emerge fromm cosmological and collidial events. That … Continue reading
