I dabble in building software models of alternate physical theories
Welcome to the PF, Tom.
Please be sure to read through the PF rules (under Info at the top of the page). We don't generally discuss "alternate physical theories" here unless they have already been published in the mainstream peer-reviewed literature. That still leaves us lots to discuss, though!
Unless you mean in the SciFi sense -- we do have a special forum for that...
No, I don't mean in the "SciFi" sense. I am here mainly to test my knowledge, and have questions about accepted known physics with the people on this forum. I will then test my alternate models against this, elsewhere, of course. Just so people know where I'm coming from.
