I could listen to Sir Roger Penrose’s stories and thoughts all day long. I have listened to Dr. Lawrence Krauss’s books on Audible on repeat for days on end. What could be better than a wonderful interview discussion between Lawrence Krause (67) and Sir Roger (90).
I hope the point charge era will be able to benefit from the insights of Dr. Penrose and Dr. Krauss. I would also love to hear their thoughts on the history of physics from the vantage point of the point charge era. How close were various people and ideas to the solution? What were the mental blocks that could not be surmounted and why?
Sir Roger relates stories about his Dad and their friendship with M.C. Escher. Sir Roger is one of the most creative advanced visual thinkers of all time. This visual depiction shows Sir Roger’s Conformal Cyclic Cosmology as a serial process. From far away it looks like drawing of a spine and has hints of anthropocentrism physically and from the perspective of a birth, life, death, rebirth loop. Many of Escher’s works depicted serial processes and this is a fascinating drawing yet I think there is an opportunity for a superior model and depiction.
Consider the set of all astronomical observations not including the CMB. Each of those individual photons was produced in high energy reactions from a specific source which we can bound with an arbitrarily scaled enclosing sphere. Why would we treat CMB photons any different? What is the provenance of the decision to consider CMB photons spread like peanut butter over the inside spherical surface of the observable universe? I think Hoyle, Narlikar, and Burbridge were given the bum rush. They had barely any time to refine their steady state ideas before their ideas were cast in to the pile of rejected crackpot theories. Geesh, physicists have been really brutal to their colleagues. It’s unprofessional. Some physicists are bullies to their ideating idolators in the public sphere. That’s unprofessional2.
I think there is a tremendous opportunity for Sir Roger and team to re-depict CCC as a parallel process in space and time. This Escher work could be considered a prototype for an illustration of recycling parallelism.
We need art that depicts the large scale recycling process in a circular proxy of a spherical volume representing the oldest and farthest photons we can observe. Oh, and it has to be Escher like. Here is a collage of LIGO mergers and quasars as an ideation prompt. For extra credit we can add ORCS to the artwork.
There is a highly relevant segment of the Penrose:Krauss video 1:52:00 to 2:15:00 where Sir Roger is skeptical about the following narrative :
- CMB represents thermal equilibrium
- thermal equilibrium represents highest entropy
- but the second law of thermodynamics says that entropy increases
- which begs the question, where did the entropy of the CMB go?
The error in thinking of Sir Roger and LCDM cosmologists is already evident. It is not correct to presume that CMB photons represent a uniform condition painted across the spherical surface of the observable universe. Instead, reframe and consider that the sources of CMB photons emanate from events isotropically distributed across the farthest reaches of the observable universe with the same isotropy at large scales throughout the interior of the observable universe.
The point charge cosmology narrative solves the problem.
- point charge core of an SMBH at or near zero entropy
- jet or catastrophic breach of Planck point charge plasma leads to high or maximum entropy
- rotating structures form with an unknown effect on nebulously defined entropy;
- dipole formation — reduces entropy? increase order?
- nested dipole capture — reduces entropy? increase order?
- photon, neutrino bridge, fermion structure — reduces entropy? increase order?
- entropy needs to be reformulated or eliminated in the point charge era
I speculate that Sir Roger might remove his objection to inflation in the case of the point charge formulation. It is obvious that point charge dipoles inflate and follow the Planck’s Law curve. I suspect that Sir Roger objects to a more specific abstract formulation of inflation. Adjudicating that dispute is moot at this point.
