    Why Even Talk About Gravitons Even Existing?

    DARK ENERGY QUESTION -- James Ph. Kotsybar Could inflation have done more than we know, shortly after the Big Bang’s first salvo, and created a dense matter halo beyond the horizon where we can go? Beyond the horizon that we can see, is there a remote...

    How long does it take a black hole to gain seven billion solar masses?

    Jonathan, that's my point exactly. We see things enter a black hole very, very slowly due to time dilation. Also, black holes undergo tremendously long rests where they are not feeding at all -- even the ones from the first billion years of the universe behave this way, even though matter was...

    How long does it take a black hole to gain seven billion solar masses?

    So you are saying that in order for the super massive black holes we see today to have accumulated the mass they have, they must have started out big? And why eight times bigger than the resultant black hole? Would you say all initially formed black holes had to have had original solar masses...

    Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle

    Pursuit of Knowledge -- James Ph. Kotsybar The world we know has a fuzzy border at the limit of our best perception -- there’s more probability than order and certainty is a misconception. Simultaneity just seems absurd, since Einstein’s explained relativity -- observers can’t...

    How long does it take a black hole to gain seven billion solar masses?

    We don't see matter rushing to a center point as though down a drain anywhere in the universe. Black holes' accumulation of matter must (except perhaps rare moments like a collision with another black hole) happen over a long period of time. Assuming a star, destined to be a black hole, began...

    Does gravity slow time's passage?

    Can you explain coordinate acceleration with regard to its difference to proper acceleration's influence on the (perceived) passage of time?

    Does gravity slow time's passage?

    I assumed that an orbit was actually a straight path through curved four-dimensional space. However, this aside, can you tell me if I got the following correct? SPECIAL RELATIVITY -- James Ph. Kotsybar No longer absolute, we now know time is altered by travel’s velocity and will...

    Does gravity slow time's passage?

    I meant to indicate: Let's say the orbiting twin is traveling near light speed, but is not accelerating.

    Does gravity slow time's passage?

    If gravity and acceleration are "cousins," How much faster does time proceed on Earth than floating motionless (or rather without acceleration) outside the Earth's gravitational field? Accelerating clocks tick slower, right? So too for clocks on Earth's surface, then? Also, with regard to...

    Why Even Talk About Gravitons Even Existing?

    I believe that the prevailing theory is that gravity waves travel at light speed. If the moon were to suddenly disappear, we would feel the effects the same time we saw it go (but both observations would be limited to light speed).

    Why Even Talk About Gravitons Even Existing?

    I've posted this elsewhere, but it is just so appropriate here that here it is again: BREAKING SYMMETRY -- James Ph. Kotsybar Our universe has things in it because chance quantum fluctuations enable. Nothing is what violates Nature’s laws -- something is apparently more stable...

    Can anyone explain Gravity to a biologist?

    I think the recently published paper explaining gravity as entropy makes a lot more sense and is intuitively more satisfying than hunting for gravitons or inventing dark energy. You do ask really interesting questions that would seem to point out some "gravitonational" problems with a black...

    Can anyone explain Gravity to a biologist?

    BREAKING SYMMETRY -- James Ph. Kotsybar Our universe has things in it because chance quantum fluctuations enable. Nothing is what violates Nature’s laws -- something is apparently more stable. Super-symmetry was asking for it. It was just too perfect to be withstood, and once it took the...

    The universe is expanding & the universe is infinite

    Still on the topic of expansion, I call these entangled morphemes a "hidden-form sonnet." It looks less doggerel on the page, without the ABAB CDCD, etc. STICK THEORY -- James Ph. Kotsybar If God wanted us to know everything the universe would have stopped expanding, or, at least, its...

    The universe is expanding & the universe is infinite

    SUPERLUMINELLE -- James Ph. Kotsybar The Universe is expanding, Faster than the limit of light, Beyond common understanding. Cosmology is demanding. Its study is by no means slight. The Universe is expanding. Physic’s heroes quite outstanding Have applied their full mental...
