Daily Digest 1/16 - The Great Reset, Climate Change In My Backyard

Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 12:53 PM


The Great Reset (thc0655)

John McAfee made an even more interesting comment quoted in the same article that will grow with time when he said, "Bubbles are mathematically impossible in this new paradigm. Gold is laughable compared to cryptocurrencies. How do you fractionalize gold? How do you ship it? It's physical so how do you safely store it. It was good for people 3,000 years ago. Today it is inherently worthless. Soon it will drop in value as crypto currencies climb."

All Democrats and one Republican support net neutrality bill in Senate (jdargis)

"With full caucus support, it's clear that Democrats are committed to fighting to keep the Internet from becoming the Wild West where ISPs are free to offer premium service to only the wealthiest customers while average consumers are left with far inferior options," US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said today.

Africa Is Sending Us Its Best and Brightest (tmn)

One of the most striking facts about immigration to the U.S., unbeknownst even to many immigration advocates, is the superior education of Africans coming to this country. If we consider adults age 25 or older, born in Africa and living in the U.S., 41.7 of them have a bachelor’s degree or more, according to 2009 data. For contrast, the native-born population has a bachelor’s degree or more at the much lower rate of only 28.1 percent in these estimates, and foreign-born adults as a whole have a college degree at the rate of 26.8 percent, both well below the African rate.

Florida prisoners plan Martin Luther King Day strike over 'slavery' (tmn)

“Florida is one of the few states in the country that doesn’t pretend to pay even a nominal wage. Some states might say they pay 10 cents a day, or 15 cents an hour, or whatever, but here they make it pretty clear they don’t pay prisoners anything, they’re not going to, and prisoners are totally enslaved at every level.

Act Now on Tax Reform and Save Thousands (Tiffany D.)

Starting on January 1, many owners of pass-throughs will pay no federal income tax on 20% of the profit from their businesses. That’s right, zip, nada. For many people, this could mean a big drop in their effective federal income tax rate.

Money For Nothing In The Bitcoin Bubble (jdargis)

The cryptocurrency community is centered around a tightknit group of friends — developers, libertarians, Redditors and cypherpunks — who have known each other for years through meet-ups, an endless circuit of crypto conferences and internet message boards. Over long hours in anonymous group chats, San Francisco bars and Settlers of Catan game nights, they talk about how cryptocurrency will decentralize power and wealth, changing the world order.

Norway Desperately Needs Large Oil Discoveries (Michael K.)

Thanks to costs cuts and large oil discoveries made before the oil price crash, Norway will be able to sustain its oil and gas production over the next five years. But reduced exploration drilling and lack of big discoveries in the past two years spell trouble for Western Europe’s biggest oil and gas producer after 2023, authorities fear.

Climate Change In My Backyard (tmn)

Many residents, exhausted from weeks of displacement, were at home that night despite evacuation warnings. The forecast called for heavy rains, and the county was persistent in its preparation for mudslides and flooding. But the rain’s intensity was extreme. Rain was not supposed to fall this fast, not in our memory. No one thought it would be so bad.

New Physics.. Phoenix Theory

This has come onto my radar screen and I find it intensely interesting;



...Back in December of 2015 Stephen Wolfram Published an article on his blog titled “What is space time, really?” In this article he masterfully outlines a new computational framework for looking at our Universe and a path which he believes could lead to a complete theory of physics, unifying quantum physics and relativity, through finding the most simplistic discrete building blocks and rules for the known universe, using an algorithmic method similar to what he wrote about in “A New Kind of Science”, his fascinating 1,000+ page tome on how highly complex patterns could emerge from simple 1 dimensional, 2 bit systems using basic iteration algorithms.

In this article "What is Space Time, Really?" he proposed that a new model of unified physics might be generated by using simple computational algorithms, only in 3D instead of 1. He talks about some of the key mathematical tools for constructing networks: things like knots, nodes, and graphs which are all integral parts of this new theory I’m about to present to you here today. Stephen doesn’t realize just how close he actually came to discovering it.

My friend and fellow physicist Ken Griggs, a recurring guest here on my channel, began researching quantum entanglement and discrete theories of quantum gravity 20 years ago, and his research independently lead him along a nearly identical approach to physics as Wolfram described here in 2015. “The Traditional Instinct would be to start from existing physics and try to reverse engineer rules that could reproduce it.” So what I’m about to show you here, is what you need to put in your computer program to get our universe, and some of the basic puzzle required to build this new model of physics and solve all the problems with the current standard model. This new way of doing physics will eventually become the new standard model, and will replace the old quantum field theory in due time.

PhOENIX is the Physics of Entanglements, Networks, and Information eXchanges. The theory was developed by Ken and a few other colleagues over the past 20 years and is rooted in decades of topology and combinatorics work by our friends in the math world. Tools that didn’t exist 40 years ago. PhOENIX treats all of elementary particle physics as a series of entangled vertices connected by simple matching rules. And these vertices with lines connecting them are, in fact, just another way of visually representing particles and their respective matrices; we call them graphs. This is why matrix mechanics works so well for describing quantum theory, and the higher order graphs also explain away dark matter as the inert matrix formations which don’t interact with normal matter but still gravitate. There are even bigger cosmological implications, but we’ll save that for another video......

.......At the fundamental level of physics, all matter in the known universe is simply bundles of vertices tied together in these entangled states, which communicate and interact through a massive web of iterating information exchanges mediated by photons bouncing off of electrons and other particles. Like a giant entangled tapestry which threads all the universe together. The Force of Gravity or quantum gravity is now being understood as a sort of entropy which evolves out of quantum entanglement in higher order systems.

okay, I'll bite

Long answer, which I worked out with my brother twenty years ago:

(1) Q: in its own frame of reference, how much time does a photon-in-vacuum spend in time of flight? What is the path length? A: Zero, and zero.

(2) Q: Then how does a photon, or rather where does a photon exist? A: in its connection to (for example) electron shells.

(3) Q: then what is the spatial network for photons? A: it is the higher-energy massed particles.

(4) Q: extrapolating, what might we expect for the spatial network for us massive particles? A: higher energy particles.

(5) Q: Based on the time granularity of space we see, what is the lifetime of such space units? A: very short.

(6) Q: if there is a gradient of density through which photons transit, what is the path of the photons? A: it behaves similarly to in a gravitational field.

(7) Q: What happens if you pull a quark away from a neutron? A: color value of the neutron and quark increase until the energy of separation exceeds the energy of particle/antiparticle pair formation; the antiparticle annhilates the wayward quark, and the neutron is back together.

(8) Q: What happens if an object falls down a black hole? A: the parts closest to the black hole are accelerated from the parts farther, and the object is infinitely torn apart.

(9) Q: So what happens at the quark level? A: the pair formed cannot catch the wayward quark. Nor can it re-annhilate. Therefore, the each wayward quark forms a string of quark/antiquark/quark antiquark

(10) Q: What happens to the shape of the waveform? A: the transverse momentum goes to zero, resulting (through Heisenberg's uncertainty principle) in a very wide, flat waveform.

(11) Q: Can the wide flat waveform interact with other quarks falling from other angles? A: Don't see why not; and indeed they would have to.

(12) Q: What would be the nature of such results? A: a very short-lived high energy particle that we might interpret as a virtual particle.

(13) Q: can such quarks also exist stably in any other frame? A: possibly in a three-d network, in which they interacted with each other.

(14) Q: Wouldn't the quark-antiquark strings tunnel out? A: very likely they would. We know this to be the case.

(15) Q: how would such particles interact with massed particles? A: The quarks of our normal, thermal neutrons and protons would participate with the high-energy quarks in the formation of particles that were 1/3 or 2/3 virtual.

(16) Q: so would massed particles attract virtual particle concentrations, and virtual particle concentrations attract massed particles, in a gravitational manner? A: they would.

(17 ) Q: So the virtual particles would form a spatial network for thermal (slow moving particles) based on their interactions? A: it would appear so.

(18) Q: And what about the energy form of heisenberg's uncertainty principle, delta-E delta-T ----
So in short, I think they're on the right track.

More on gravity...

Wow.. that's quite a tome Michael!

The leading physics journals in just the past few years, are all leaning towards that same idea that quantum entanglement causes gravity, as no evidence can be found for the graviton.

We are on the verge of a major scientific breakthrough in physics, and we want to be on the cutting edge of that discovery, and the amazing technologies that will be brought to life from this deeper understanding of the core of physics.

Eigen Barely Function

That's just meant to be a little high-brow humour!  Nice, BTW.

I love it Dennis.. your humor is indeed upper crusty!

Entanglement is the network that is the Universe.
