I found a book by Gregory Chaitin called Meta Math: the quest for Omega. I haven’t read it yet. Just had a glance at the overall picture. It lured my mind back to the case of singularity, which I have been fortunate enough to forget about for the past weeks. So per usual it had me repeating my simple mantra once more. Same message as always, albeit in a seemingly new package. I will post this now and hopefully forget it again. All the hours and effort I’ve dedicated to communicating this one simple idea has so far been a total waste of time. Sure I’ve been intellectually occupied and energized by it, but playing around intellectually also should lead to utility for all. Not only entertainment for me.
Before my rambling, I’d like to comment on a quote from Chaitin’s book:
Because in order to be able to fool yourself into thinking that you
have solved a really fundamental problem, you have to shut your eyes and
focus on only one tiny little aspect of the problem. Okay, for a while you
can do that, you can and should make progress that way. But after the brief
elation of “victory”, you, or other people who come after you, begin to realize
that the problem that you solved was only a toy version of the real problem,
one that leaves out significant aspects of the problem, aspects of the problem
that in fact you had to ignore in order to be able to get anywhere
- There is no separate “me” that has a “self” which to fool. Misconception from self-reference rules the game. No matter how much Gödel “You” have studied. “You” will never get it right, because “You” are the very incompleteness of the system. Without a functional reference point, not being the system itself, the system cannot be completely described.
- Fundamentally, there is no problem to solve. What seems a problem arises from the fact that the previous point is actually true. Not realizing/accepting that a relative perspective is required for any observation, that causes problems. Not realizing/accepting that if a singularity, an initial state of the universe cannot be understood in relative/observational terms, that causes problems.
- Saying one solution is of a “toy” problem, while other solutions are of “real” problems is relevant if, and only if, you know exactly what discriminates one from the other. What if the “real” problems all have relative solutions, and the “toy” problem has but one absolute solution? What if the “Toy” is always one and the same, while “reality” is never the same?
- What if “ignoring” relative aspects is not bad at all in studying a possibly absolute aspect? In fact, how could it otherwise be possible to understand 1 absoulte truth if you didn’t eliminate relative variables. What Chaitin calls “ignorance” is instead the controlling of variables in a certain thought experiment.
This is what I’d like to figure out:
Assume a quantum of action as such Assume it can be imagined as the most fundamental form of sphere Assume this spherical quantum of action has the intrinsic quality of rotation Let this quantum of rotational action be the one and only force there is.
Assume the geometry of sphere to be a momentary state Assume that, at this particular moment, the quantum of action is, at least theoretically, in perfect equilibrium, similar to a Planckian Grey Body average. Assume a physical body in perfect equilibrium to be energetically dead, and therefore impossible to detect/measure. Ergo, a grey body as such cannot be dimensioned and is thus immesurable and nondimensional. Define this sphere moment as the moment of 0 measurable quantity as well as 0 measurable quality. Let this particular moment be the true and factual number 0. That is, the grey body as such is the fact of Something, but impossible to detect/measure as a certain, empirical fact definable as being a particular object (wave, particle, quark, gluon, spinor, foam, tensor etc). It is not Nothing, but it is not a Thing. It is, in relation to externals, Something empirically invisible. We can perhaps term it “Background” or “Grid” or “Hidden Variable”.
Let the force of rotation, which is the fundamental action and thus not caused by some other action, cause itself to change its geometry. Assume rotation of the sphere form have its axis of rotation being compressed, and thus to decrease in “length” from the momentary value of 0. Assume rotation of the sphere form have its equator, perpendicular to its axis, being extended, and thus to increase in circumference from the momentary value of 0. Imagine the gray, spherical equilibrium, by means of its own rotational force/action, to gradually reform itself to increasingly flatter ellipsoid, and to do so up to the critical instance when axis is maximally compressed and circumference is maximally extended. Assume the value of vertical compression to be gravitational potential as “magnetism”. Assume the value of horizontal extension to be kinetic energy as “electricity/charge”. Define this disc moment as the moment of 1 measurable quantity as well as 2 measurable qualities. Assume these 2 qualities of compression/extension corresponds to the concepts of time/space as well as position/velocity.
Let the moment of maximum extension/compression equal the concept of zero entropy, as the opposite moment of perfect equilibrium. Imagine the opposite to a mathematical 0 is the 1 quantity of +1-1 qualities. Imagine grey randomness reforming itself to black/white order of duality. Imagine equilibrium enforcing itself to become zero entropy. Imagine force to cause energy, in and of itself. Imagine rotation to cause electromagnetism.
So, can such a Something be figured out mathematically? I don’t know. It seems we need to reconsider the ontology of numbers, and most of all the numbers 0 and 1. I suspect these symbolic representations of physical reality must be properly physicalized. Perhaps our quest for the math of reality must be complemented with a quest for the physics of math?
I suggest the number 0 represents a symmetric equilibrium in the shape of sphere. Being equilibrium, it cannot be interacted with. It neither reflects, nor does it absorb. It is not likely to transmit either. I suspect that any thing contacting the 0 sphere becomes it, instantly. I suggest that, enforced by rotation, the 0 sphere generates a gradual emergence of quantity, a continuous increase of empirical reality in the shape of “space”. That is, the equatorial bulge, which gradually becomes the perimeter of a flat disc, is the very essence of empirical reality as it emerges, seemingly “out of nothing”. That “nothing” is nothing but its momentary state and trait of spherical equilibrium. This continuous increase of somethings horizontal perimeter is the emergence of an increasingly wider and flatter quantity of 1. This variable quantity of the (empirical) 1 comes with a proportional increase of two seemingly opposite qualities, because just as the perimeter charge is tensed out by force of rotation, so is the axis of rotation compressed. So in this scenario, magnetism is gravitational potential which increases in the exact amount that kinetic charge increases. Thus, electromagnetism is not a fundamental force, but an inevitable effect caused by the fundamental force of rotation. Not being a mathematician, far from it, I allow myself to be stupid enough to suggest; There are no natural numbers except for 0 and 1. 0 is a spherical equilibrium as a special case in a sequence/oscillation that is a constant flux. Most likely, the only true 0 as of a perfectly symmetric quantum of action is only possible/factual at a universal state of singularity, and only so at a particular instance and not as a stable state. Similar to the clock on the wall never “being” 0 or 12 (or any other number of times), but just an empirical manifestation of certain moments. The actual ticking of “time” is probably related to the instances of phase inversions, so reality might “tick” at each “time” the extension of “space” reaches its maximum length/circumference. If so, time increases as space increases, and it does so in continuous fashion. So if we choose to set time 0 along the equator of spherical equilibrium, then increase of time equals increase of space as the equator is tensed out by rotational force. Then time stops at the moment our quantum of action is maximally extended horizontally as well as maximally compressed vertically. Then the poles (both ends of axis) goes “Tick”, and gravitational potential is released bidirectionally. As the unit is thus relaxed, the amount of energy built up from projection of space/horizon will be conjected back towards 0. This is the phase of propotional reversal of spacetime. I suspect the clock of reality says very little of this, because this is how it is quantized as to (almost) disappear. The fully conjected unit is at its lowest energy state and will be hard to even detect. I think this might be what we think of as “Neutrinos”. They don’t travel at all. They are already everywhere. Flickering moments, close to equilibrium.
So how can this explain, for instance, the notion of complexity? Well, imagine a universal singularity to be a definite limit to what is otherwise a true Nothing-ness. Apart from Nothing-ness, there is only the universal singularity. This singularity, as pictured above, is never a stable state. Reason is fundamental force of rotation and how that enforces the singularity/quantum to reform spherical equilibrium into a 2D disc of electro/magnetism and back to spherical equilibrium. This sequence is likely to render the singularity a wobbling instability which, after certain moments/times of phase inversions, causes the unit to break in 2. NOTE: This is not 2 as we conventionally treat the quantity of 2. Keep in mind that before the breaking of unit into units, the notion of 1 is not applicable. To define singularity as the quantity 1, we must have a reference quantity that is not-1, e.g 0, .5, 2 etc. There is no such reference external to a universal singularity. It is more truthlike to say “0<1>0” breaks into “0<1>0<1>0” or “0+1-1” breaks into “0+1-10+1-1”. The latter seems nonsensical of course, but then having 0 generate +1-1 all by itself also seems nonsensical.
From this moment and onwards, the motion of a unit (now a units) is dependent on context. This increases the complexity of the now system of units. Now what was absolute singularity can be understood as relative duality/parity. Let these 2 units break into 4, and there is increase in restrictions of motion. So while each following breaking of units allow for increased complexity in how they can oscillate in various patterns, it also means that each and every one unit is dependent on an increasing amount of other units. Since laws of conservation naturally follows the suggested scenario, we can also be sure no single unit can ever have escape velocity enough the separate from its origin. This is good, because it keeps reality in place and makes the infamous heat-death impossible. It allows for a lot of ideas that basically makes sense of what seems a mystery. Local? Yes! Nonlocal? Yes! Empirical? Yes! Hidden? Yes! Irreversible? Yes! Reversible? Yes!
Simple as it seems, how could we entertain our intellectual desire for complex problems to solve? You know, intelligence can never accept what might be objectively simple and absolute. Intelligence generates questions, not answers. Answers are for religion, right? So being a schmuck with numbers and equations, I offer anyone interested to flesh out in detail the numbers corresponding to one single sequence of the imagined motion of singularity. How to do it is up to anyone’s preference. I can only suggest some crude pointers from my layman’s perspective.
Here’s an example to play around with. This complex image is not following the agreed upon rules of course. It assumes a base value that, instead of an infinitely small point, is regarded as an actual point/force/quanta which is irreducilble and thus the physical limit of spatial size. It assumes reality can disappear as “space”, not because of size but as an effect of geometry. That is, if reality at hand is a perfect sphere, then it is in a state of equilibrium, and if so it is undetectable. No matter its assumed size or the nature of measuring device, a state of equilibrium does not interact with external context because it is energetically dead. Another way is to say; a sphere cannot be detected “in” empirical space because it has no spatial extension. Only as force of rotation causes the equator – Its Own Equator – to bulge, and the axis – Its Own Axis – to compress does the unit have the property of spatial extension. Nota bene; with the quality of horizontal extension (space) comes, perpendicular to the equatorial horizon, an equal amount of axial compression (times).
I didn’t add the following phase of conjection because it’s the same but in reverse. Just let the disc rotate as before and the compression at center will now increase vertical values bidirectionally from -.5-.5 to 00, and by that horizontal values uniformly from +.25+.25+.25+.25 to 0000.
To avoid a static oscillation and allow for the unit to break, we must add knowledge of hydrodynamics and how the inevitable wobble/instability of a rotating point of gas/liquid plays out. That’s way beyond me, but other will know for sure. I know they do because there are tons of papers about it.
That will probably show the cause of positive and negative curvature of space. My assumption is that projective space is positive as the sphere is flattened out, and that conjective space is negative as the gravitational potential at the axis is released.
Just feeding the crazy minds here.
Don’t believe a word of it.
You want reality as it really is?
Practice mindfulness, relentlessly, and you will eventually learn that there was nothing hidden ever. When reality hides, it does so by being Everything LOL…..
Have a wonderful weekend!
EDIT/ADD-IT: When saying the system needs a functional reference point in order to describe itself, I am not saying there actually is such a reference point. There is not. Not in the universe as described here. My image denies the existence of separation as well as of many universes. There is One Universe and This is It.
Never the less, human mind function seems able to describe reality to a very large extent. In fact, all the way from the current state of affairs and back to the so called Planck Epoch, but beyond that it seems unable to “get it”. Religion solves that by saying “God”, while the scientific solution is to say “There will forever be new questions to deal with”. Same same but opposite. None carries explanatory power.
The cool thing with human mind is the ability to operate/compute/respond as if it was indeed a functional reference point. It reasons and acts as if there was a “me” that “had” a mind of my own, able to look at reality. This as if- perspective is what makes intelligence possible. Without it, there is just the One Reality thinking, knowing, questioning, experiencing and ignoring all by itself. These internal activities/events occur in the momentary forms of “humans” and “brains”. But there is only One which has “humans” and “brains”, and that is the One Reality. It has multiples of itself, and the many combine in various patterns with various functions.
So singularity is a point without reference, while duality/parity is a point referring to itself in the form of another point. Complexity is a point referring to a multitude of itself in the form of numerous points. No matter how many billions of points made, the broken singularity is bound to self-reference. Only in the special case of being non-relative (call it Initial/Final state if you will), is the universe non-referential and absolute.
So to say, as I previously did, that there is no reference point (meaning a human observer) to describe reality is also not true. The truth is rather this; there is nothing but reference points. Any instance/unit of existence is defined in reference to all the others. To believe the aggregates of points/quanta called “humans” are somehow able to stand separate from this “quantum foam” and describe it “objectively” is nonsensical beyond belief. Of course we can’t do that!
But that is not to say it can’t be done. It is done. It’s happening right here, right now.
It’s just not me writing and you reading.
It is One Reality, able to write and read all of itself.
Cool isn’t it?
