This book review appeared in the periodical Physics Today in 1957. It is fascinating that even back in 1957 physicists had developed such intense disdain for the public.
I am highly bemused by this Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin’s quotation.
“… modern cosmology … is a subject that the general reader has been led to believe that he can grasp without the essential background of mathematics and physics. The superficial ideas of such general readers (which are not unknown among college students) are the despair of the serious scientist.”Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin
I mean no offense to physicists by the following statement. I predict that history will show Cecilia’s statement to be laughingly out of touch with reality. The only reason physicists get so many unsolicited ideas from enthusiasts is that physicists have made a gigantic mess of their science and left so many major open unsolved mysteries. The ‘general reader’ is equally as clueless as the physicists because these are all artificial problems caused by off the rails physics interpretations. I’ve written about this extensively on my blog at jmarkmorris.com. I’d love to help the community if anyone is open minded. It’s easy. Simplicity + emergence yields complexity. It really is just immutable point charges. Take the leap of faith and look into it. Why was this solution missed? It is so incredibly obvious! Especially in hindsight.
I had a random brainstorm thought today that the three dipoles in a generation 1 fermion energy core will tend to reach a resonant set of frequencies based on the nesting. What defines those resonances? How can this be described mathematically?
I’ve seen a number of videos pop up lately about auto-resonance. That makes a lot of sense. I’ll watch some of those. This should tie in to Koide. Furthermore there is this idea of all three orbitals (wave equations, circular/elliptical planar orbits, precessing orbits) tilting and approaching the same plane – as energy of the particle increases (velocity, acceleration, etc.). You can’t deviate much at the speed of electromagnetic waves (local c) and maintain stability.
Ultimately the very highest energy electrinos and positrinos are traveling in a straight line on an electromagnetic geodesic. At the Planck energy the electrino and positrino would essentially be orbiting with no gap between them. In free space an electrino and positrino traveling at c would have to just graze each other such that the geodesic wrapped them into a circular orbit with no gap. More common in nature would be that as electrino-positrino density increased that orbits would be increasingly interrupted by proximity reactions.
Prior to a composite particle reaching c, there is some wiggle room where the near planar orbitals can rotate and counter-rotate and give us mere mortals the illusion of orthogonal electromagnetic waves. So what we perceive as wavelength is not quite accurate, because the electrino and positrino have also done one complete planar orbit per Hz at the radius of that particular energy photon.
Of course, many standard matter particles, which are structures made from electrinos and positrinos, will disintegrate at high energy. A photon, which is composed of a high energy neutrino counter-rotating with a high energy anti-neutrino, is a planar structure, well bi-planar to be precise. A photon is composed of counter-rotating planar nested dipoles.
Another amazing thing is that from the point of view of the electrino and positrino in each dipole they really don’t see another member of the nested dipole within a few orders of magnitude, until energies get high. We operate so close to 0 Kelvin kinetically and that is an amazing clue about nature. There are many beautiful thought experiments to perform with immutable point charges.
