Physicists : cd ~/career rm -rf *

The title of this post derives from a Dr. Stacy McGaugh tweet and mimics the commands to access your storage for all files pertaining to your career and accumulated work and remove everything with no possibility of recovery.

I know I just told a lot of y’all that you might as well cd ~/career rm -r *.* but I’ve been trying politely to warn you about that for a quarter century. The response has ranged from “unsatisfactory” to “shoot the messenger.” Fixating and feedback has not and never will work.

It’s worse than you thought Stacy. If you are a particle physicist then cd ../../1870 (go back in history to 1870) and apply your current idea of the “vacuum” which must obey general relativity and you will already be at a quandry. Is spacetime a geometry or an implementation that in proper ranges is indistinguishable from a geometry? You must re-examine this question.

Okay, so the particle physicists messed up really bad for 150 years. A huge prior err took them off track where they still did good work which was incredibly difficult and slow because of incorrect priors. As soon as physicists give their beloved fields point charge generators then we will know there is a real physical implementation. And, despite physicist Geoffrey Chew’s influence, it IS important to drill down to the most fundamental.

Particle physicists should do a recursive chmod 444 (make everything current into a historical archive baseline) to freeze/pivot research that will be impacted by this new knowledge of a fundamental pair of field generators, from which all other fields are derived. It’s easier to think about emergent structures first and fields second.

To discuss fundamental immutable field generators is anathema to “modern” physics. The tragicomedy is that once one physicist gets it and translates between my language and theirs then it will go viral.


But onward to astrophysicists. You need to cd ../../1921 (go back a century in time) with the knowledge that fields have generators which are immutable. Now think! That means that any matter-energy that falls into a black hole may reveal more shielded energy and what does that do to your precious gravity? What else? Think!

Well, it means that black holes are only so deep (in a general relativity sense). There is a limit to field generator density, because they are immutable, so if you want to believe nothing escapes but Hawking radiation then why is so much going on in the universe? I suggest more is escaping the black hole than you realize.

Here is the wonderful end to this story. A chapter in physics history ended. A new chapter began and was a gold mine delivering faster than Moore’s Law and hence a driver of economic investment which included the vision to populate the universe with intelligent individuals.
