I Energy differences in different directions: the grid

  1. Sep 20, 2016 #1
    I heard a scientist propose a way to confirm (I feel that is a strong word) that there is a "grid" that subatomic particles and the smallest parts of the universe have to follow, instead of travelling freely. If energy moves sideways, it will lose energy more quickly for the same distance as energy travelling straight, as it has to go in a zig-zag motion. Has this been detected so far, through supernovas perhaps?

    "I heard a scientist propose" is not a valid thread start here at the PF. You need to post a link to an acceptable, mainstream scientific article that discusses this idea.

    All our experiments are consistent with space being isotropic (same in every direction). I'm pretty confident saying that because it would be big news if something showed otherwise.

    No reply from EasterEggs, so with the good reply from @Khashishi this thread will be closed until the OP can send me some quality links discussing the subject.
