Quantum Theory

Here’s a recent diatribe from Dr. Paul Sutter on Quantum Theory. It is both hilarious and tragic. False priors caused this quantum mess. I think at least part of the issue is that quantum mechanics is dissatisfying to some who study it. Why should we accept that the best science can do is a probability […]

PBS Space Time Convo

Here is a conversation I had on the PBS Space Time discord. As usual, the fanbois who frequent social media demonstrate their complete lack of creativity and imagination. I continue to find it to be either a lack of intellectual capability or perhaps some kind of subterfuge, for these people to claim they don’t recognize […]

Nature Fooled Physicists

One might argue that Lienard and Wiechert own some responsibility for the false priors established by their circa 1900 work on point charges and action due to history potential. They did not consider fractional point charges, because at the time, all that was known was positive and negative charge. I think this was well before […]

Innovation Contest

I’ve entered NPQG in an innovation contest! In a sense it feels odd because it seems to me like a gargantuan idea entering a contest that would typically draw less lofty concepts. On the other hand, the NPQG model is first and foremost extremely mundane and parsimonious. I guess it fits right in, even if […]

Nature’s Playful Tease

Let’s think about this image of stars orbiting around Sagittarius-A, the super-massive black hole (SMBH) at the center of our galaxy. This system of an SMBH and nearby stars is an assembly, a construct. A measurable and predictable aspect of this assembly is the (x,y,z,t) path of each orb through spacetime. Not only must we […]

The Periodic Table of the Standard Model

The figure shows what I call the periodic table of the standard model of particle physics. Let’s walk through the sections of the table. In the top left is the architectural pattern of the standard model. The three dark orbital paths, each support a positive and a negative unit potential point charge orbiting in a […]

Determinism

Physical laws that are described by differential equations represent deterministic systems, even though the state of the system at a given point in time may be difficult to describe explicitly. Wikipedia Let’s study systems of point charges, which are governed by differential equations, and examine the topic of determinism. In one sense action throughout the […]

The Equivalence Principle

In the theory of general relativity, the equivalence principle is the equivalence of gravitational and inertial mass, and Albert Einstein’s observation that the gravitational “force” as experienced locally while standing on a massive body (such as the Earth) is the same as the pseudo-force experienced by an observer in a non-inertial (accelerated) frame of reference. […]

Nature of a Gravitational Theory

In Robert Dicke’s 1957 paper, “Gravitation without a Principle of Equivalence” he writes of the requirements for a new theory of gravitation. The Noether core implements the strong force and Lorentz invariance. This is accomplished with six point charges. The geometry is based upon orbiting negative and positive point charges. The orbiting dipole has fascinating […]

What is Reality?

Dr. Sara Imari Walker asks on Twitter, “What is reality?” Here is my response. Tragically, a false prior has devastated the understanding of physics and cosmology. Nature is simply a Euclidean void in time and space populated with energetic unit potential point charges. They emit a spherically expanding unit potential at each continuous point on […]

Cosmology

Eminent scientists have published papers on the state of LCDM cosmology in 2022 just as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) era begins. These papers include the successes as well as the anomalous tensions of LCDM. Authors include Peebles (2022), Abdalla, Abellán, Aboubrahim, et al. (2022) and Perivolaropoulos and Skara (2022). These papers provide a […]

The Dipole Curvature Limit is the Anchor to Planck Scale

A unit potential point charge dipole has a maximum curvature at the orbital point where self action results in a velocity of @ pi/2, where @ is the universal constant speed of the Planck sphere potential stream. If we presume that this limit corresponds to the Planck frequency, we can calculate the radius of orbit […]

Orbiting Point Charges

Let’s consider equal and opposite unit potential point charges, an electrino and a positrino, each orbiting the other and traveling a common circular path when group absolute velocity is zero and isolated from external perturbation. The video loop shows three different orbits, each with a different energy, frequency, radius of orbit, and point charge velocity. […]

TheMessenger and Dr. Donald C. Chang

Let’s discuss several posts from PBS Space Time discord by TheMessenger who is an enigmatic commentor and speaks in a stilted, assertive, repetitive, but dispassionate style, as if pasting up a rote brain dump of creative ideas. TheMessenger says he is conveying information imparted to him from his father and in translation, the statements come […]

Lattice QCD

Let’s discuss Lattice QCD as presented in this PBS Space Time video. In point charge theory, each proton is an assembly of 36 point charges, each with a specific role, energy, and path in a stable whirling assembly of point charges with a vast range of energies and radii of path curvature. It seems to […]
