We cannot see space-time. We can only deduce what it is and how it works through indirect means. We have not successfully done that yet. Newton had a picture that space was in Cartesian co-ordinates of 3D space with time flowing, and things happening within that framework. This is most people’s common sense picture of the world. We have very hard time, concepually, going beyond this picture.
Einstein modified this picture with his relativity theories, and a 4D space-time. But, the picture is still very Cartesian. There is still no explanation of what space-time is made of. Einstein’s relativity is…
Why do we see much more matter than anti-matter?
Here is a hypothesis as to the answer to this question. It is so radical that I hesitate to publish it. But is fits the data of our studies of anti-matter so well that I feel I must put it out there. I would be very interested in learning about experiments that could prove it wrong, so I challenge all of you to prove it wrong. Figure 1 shows how this would manifest.
We know that for anti-matter particles, time runs backwards from our point of view. Therefore, when the universe…
You have written an excellent review of the problems of quantum mechanics and it's interpretations. The comments that you have received are also very insightful. I have come up with my own interpretation, "The Karpinsky Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics", here in Medium, and if you have the inclination, I would be interested in your ideas of where I got it wrong. I can't remember at this moment how to make a link to my article, but you can look it up. Also, "The Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics" by John Cramer is very interesting and I don't understand why it has not gotten more traction in the Physics community.
"When we consider dark energy, the energy density always remains constant." You provide no experimental proof of this. Also, you don't answer your own question. "As The Universe Expands, Does Space Actually Stretch?" There is something very wrong with our picture of space and time.
On Some Questions about Frames of Reference in Relativity
The purpose of this article is to ask some questions about how we relate the different frames of reference(FOR) in Relativity. I did this about a year ago in Medium in my article “On Some Questions about Photons”. I worked on it, and recently I answered some of those questions in “What is it that is Quantized in Quantum Mechanics?” published recently. So, I am trying that approach again regarding FOR. The questions may be trivial, and some readers may not want to bother reading it. That is OK. This…
Wheeler's delayed choice experiment was a thought experiment, not a real experiment. I know others have tried to perform the experiment. Right now, I have gotten tired trying to understand what they did. The wiki reference you linked needs work and references. But, regardless of that, your comments are very well taken.
I think that the photon is always a wave. I don't understand why people think that the absorption of the wave is collapse of the wave function. It is an interaction with another wave function that is very well described in QM. The same is true…
This article is part of a series of articles about the Karpinsky Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. There is also The Karpinsky Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics Part 2.
In the article, I am going to show that we all have had the wrong idea about what is quantized in quantum mechanics. We have thought that the energy of a photon is quantized. We have thought that energy of an electron is quantized. We have thought that the energy of the other massive particles in the standard model are quantized . In this article, I hope to show you that this…
Dear Quantum Wormholes,
I just re-read your paper! Since I have been studying this stuff all this time, I now understand even better. I totally agree with your viewpoint. While reading it, I came up with some more realizations. You may have also realized this, but here goes.
There is no velocity in one frame of reference. Any particle with velocity is in a different frame of reference.
When a charged particle is accelerating, it is changing its frame of reference. This is what causes a photon to form as in the Compton effect. It must reconcile the instantaniousness of the photon to our frame of reference, and that is what causes a photon to exist in our frame of reference.
Experimental Verification That Entanglement Can Cause the Temporal Order of Events to be Indeterminate.
May 9, 2021
Most of us have assumed, up until now, that all events have a definite temporal order, and that a cause always has an effect, and an effect always has a cause. The notion of causality is an innate concept of our common sense, which defines the link between physical phenomena that temporally follow one another , with one phenomenon manifestly being the cause of the other. …
This is not just about the economy. It is about the people of the United States who are hurting. The things missing from the republican proposal would be devastating to the country. There is no help for the states to help them with the extra costs of the pandemic. This is already causiing layoffs of police, health care workers and many others that are needed to deal with the pandemic which, by the way, is not over. And this is not just the blue states. The payments to the people of $1400 is desperately needed for many people who lost…
