Dear PDG, Let’s Talk!

Hello to the people providing PDG, I hope you are well. I think I have found a parsimonous formulation of nature that is isomorphic to the standard model. I mentioned PDG on a PBS Space Time Discord channel. Here is an augmented version of my comment.

Very cool PBS Space Time video Jan 19, 2022 about simulations at various scales. As an eager hobbyist, I research a parsimonious model of nature based upon point charges. There is a pattern of evidence emerging — based upon reasoning, logic, and geometry — which is strongly consistent with the hypothesis that the point charge model is isomorphic to the standard model, meaning a direct mapping back and forth. The point charge model is extremely parsimonious : it is incredibly easy to understand and reason with to solve problems. Point charges were once a darling of physics, but were set aside due to concerns with opposite point charges approaching each other infinitely closely.

Free your mind for brainstorming and imagine that nature might implement a rule that no two point charges could get any closer than a distance around the Planck length at ~10^-35. The implication is that point charges are immutable and can not be destroyed. Point charges are indestructible so we can virtually track and model every single one and watch the provenance or accumulated history of that point charge in every structure and reaction it ever participates in. Well, we can imagine doing that! I think it will be difficult to observe, even indirectly, except perhaps in very special small scale situations. However, in simulations, we really could track every single point charge.

What could we practically simulate at the point charge level with the best available hardware and optimized simulation software? Industrial technology at the process level? A bacteria? A virus? What scales and problems would benefit from understanding the provenance of point charges? I am very interested in whether provenance of immutable point charges is helpful for advancing simulations of nature.

For those of you who know what the PDG is, by applying provenance, it is extremely clear that many reactions documented in the PDG are not properly accounting for inputs and outputs of very low apparent energy structures.

I think PDG needs to have very specific strategic objectives for the point charge era and that includes a LOT more funding. Are you all paid anyway? I remember getting a very kind note from a PDG person who is a retired physicist. Gosh, something so important as PDG should definitely be able to pay the PDG scientists at least $250,000 USD annually for a full time position. I advocate $250,000 as the minimum annual compensation for scientists working in the areas of core point charge research and technology. As we begin the point charge era PDG innovation and excellence are way more important than a lot of other extremely lucrative leading edge fields.

Here are several brainstorm ideas on strategic objectives for the PDG :

  • using point charge provenance identify all reactions which are missing inputs or outputs.
    • It is important that the PDG entries are technically correct.
    • If there are known unknowns, identify them until which time they can be understood and documented.
    • Ir is of critical importance for PDG to maintain its relevance.
  • rethink, reframe, reimplement PDG as software as a service.
    • reference classes for object oriented point charge structures.
    • reaction reference based upon class structure
  • reference APIs for PDG knowledge including high frequence APIs for simulation
