Due to the Heisenburg uncertainty principle, we can have only limited knowlege of the position and of the energy of any particle. The more we know of where a thing is, the less we can know of what momentum it has. That is, if we specify the precise location of an event, we lose the ability to predict what, exactly, will happen to it next.

I have been thinking that this has to do with the fact that location is purely spatial, while momentum adds the concept of continuation in time. We generally imagine that there are three dimensions in space and only one in time, but Einstein thought that space and time are really the same thing, so we have four dimensions of spacetime. Then, I imagine, when we choose which of the three dimensions to specify as to position, the remaining one is the time dimension. However, any of the four can be time, so long as the other three are specified as position. So, the result of an event in "time", as we look backward at what has already occurred, depends on which of the four available dimensions happened to be taken up by the space determination.

In any event, then, there are several ways in which a determination (measurement) can be made. If we can arbitrarily call the four dimensions of spacetime something like A, B, C, and D, how many combinations of space and time are possible for any one observation? We could have As Bs Cs and Dt, or As Bs Ct and Ds, and so on. If we keep the sequence ABCD, we could just say that the options are such as ssst, ssts, as shown above, and then stss, and tsss. In other words there may be four time-like options for any observed event.

Another way to look at HUP is that if we choose an extremely short time interval, we can say very exactly where an object is located, but if we choose a longer time interval, the object has enough time to squirm around a little, so we can not say as exactly where it is located. After all, over a long enough period of time, an object may occupy many different positions.

I find it interesting, altho I still do not understand it, that the scientist Max Planck was able to specify a least possible amount of time and a least possible amount of space, and these are now known as the Planck length and the Planck time, and are given rather precise values. A Planck time is something like 10 to the minus 43 seconds, and a Planck length is something like 10 to the minus 27 meters, if my memory fails me. The two quantities are related to each other by the speed of light, so that a Planck time is the time it takes light in a vacuum to cross a Planck length.

Then, I think, we may talk about a four dimensional spacetime in which minimal events occur. An object can only progress through this four dimensional spacetime in increments of one Planck length and one Planck time. This is not space and time as we know it, where objects usually experience huge amounts of Planck time for every Planck space traversed. One Planck space for one Planck time would be the speed of light, you know, and our percieved world operates at velocities far below that.

Well, to get back to the question, zero point energy, are we talking about zero time or zero space or both? If zero time, there can be no energy, because energy has to do with motion, which requires time for its existance. If zero space, there isn't enough room in there for anything to happen, so again, no energy. But if we are talking about a four dimensional zero, then we have to reconsider what we mean by time and space as I discussed above.

We do know that we exist, or at least it is necessary to suppose that we exist, and it seems reasonable to suppose that the world we experience exists in some sense also. And things seem to happen, so we may suppose that there is some potential for change to occur, and this potential must exist down to the very least elements of space and time as we know them. In fact, Planck units are sometimes spoken of as action potentials. But I think if we are to realize four dimensions, we have to carefully examine our idea of what action, or change, really is.

But this epistle has gone long, and by now I am probably talking to myself again, a bad habit of night cleaners, one which causes daytime observers to look askance. I will just say that these ideas have lead me through the many worlds hypothesis into the many times hypothesis, and our world looks very different to me now. I am open to discussion, if anyone is interested.

thanks,

shoshana, aha.. this is good discussion, and wuliheron you have a valid point too. as verbal (and the inherent textual) language are probably the most universal of communication tools, we need to use them to connect with as many people as possible. but i think humans should try and rid the ego driven power games that seem to accompany some higher intellectual circles and their quest to 'know' everything. it seems to me that one of the most essential questions of our time is that of relevant knowledge (maybe belief also?). out of the many cultures and varieties of knowledge and belief's on planet earth, where should we look for clues? i reckon all beliefs and 'truths' have merit under a certain light, so it is about collating what is relevant for ones self or ones community... maybe something like that :smile:

shoshana, thats interesting about einstein and the kabbala. recently i've been delving into the metaphoric world that is alchemy (both eastern and western), and c. jung's interpretations from a psychological perspective. good brain food for learning about levels of conscioussness and the way we (as humans) often delude ourselves with unconscious bias's.

anyways good chattn :wink:

nightcleaner, for me it seems as though the western physics ideas of space and time are often caught up in reducing things and trying to find out some sort of mythical smallest thing (or in fact some hyperthetical largest thing for that matter). i am trying consciously to stop thinking in that way. ie. the scale of space is infinite: there is no smallest point, only generalisations about observable phenomena.

note: i am not rejecting western thought on these subjects, for the language of science (mathematics) is excellent for communicating observations on the physical world and it is clearly effective and the manifestations blatantly evident as you look into your computer screen!

as for time, i think it is totally subjective to who is observing it.
look at the snail, it moves extremely slowly and its reality would be shifted in spectrum to ours. i have limited understanding of planck time also, a mathematically calculated 'smallest time' does not seem possible to me, but i must say time is a very debatable set of four letters. your thoughts are impressive and make me think.

your theory on multiple worlds is similar to what i am starting to think. infact i believe there maybe infinite realities, but these questions are stepping into murky waters and one must surely search spiritually on such matters and never jump to conclusions. a lot of eastern metaphysics talks about the illusion that is the physical world, but this is the point at which i close my mouth. :wink:

Thank you for the kinds words to everyone. Please look at my last post found on my profile. It is in response to what looked to be a promising exchange between ryokan and others including myself. I told Ryokan that I had agreed with wuliheron that my original post was poorly stated and my best explanation why it was so. I also conceded to the personalities on this forum who seemed to not want my input for the reasons stated.
But because of your continued kindness I reluctanly pop back out this time to say that it was my originial intention to rally assistance if not only start an effort by those more qualified to somehow find a way to understand higher concepts (that can truly only be understood in the absence of the majority of our ego) and communicate such to the teams to whom I am close.

They do not want to admit that any kind of "mysticism", "philosophy" or "religion" has come to their work as if it somehow contaminates, weakens its credibility and other such fears like loosing funding for not stating pure science in the modern form even though what the are doing could be called "fringe" as easily as parapshchology. And I think it must be overlooked these days how much "philosophy" Einstein was seeped in addition to his classical physics.
If you have any ideas how to collate the many varied understandings and begin to unify us. To find if only a few words, to place on paper to submit to the teams (physics). I will follow you around the cosmos taking notes and doing the legwork.
I don't care where I am personally, in or out of the stadium. I just want someone to make the touchdown!!!

Thanks, magnus. Yes, that is a problem I have been trying to encompass. In GR, it seems there is no such thing as simultanaety. No two clocks can ever really be the same. I find it very difficult to let go of the notion of coinstantaneous events, perhaps because I have already let go of so much else.

Much of eastern thought seems to me to be directed toward a social entity and its needs, where western thought is centered on the individual. I have been raised in the western tradition, so notions of the egoless state of nirvanah and such seem mysterious. Strangely, both traditions lead to the same impasse, where persons are allowed to adopt the position of "I've got mine," that is, I feel great, your suffering is an illusion. In the west, we become wealthy and shut out all that is unpleasent. Few seem bothered by the loss of depth and wisdom and human experience that comes from living within established walls. In the east, people are encouraged to find mental states that transcend personal suffering and detach the self from responsibility for worldly catastrophe. The result is less socially devastating (monks meditating in cells take up less resources than jet setters) but poverty and desperation are still not relieved, merely accepted as part of the natural process.

Well, back to physics, it seems to me that every observation requires three things, an observer, a process to be observed, and a universe in which the observer has some commonality with the process. Because the observer and the observed are in the same universe, any change in one necessarily entails changes in the other. Therefore there can be no logical consistancy in separating the observer from the observed, even though we must assume a separation, an "objectivity", in order to cause events to turn to our satisfaction. This works great for cannonballs but becomes a problem in quantum realms. Perhaps I should say, rather than problem, an opportunity.

Anyway, one must adopt a self in order to observe the other. Self then must make decisions about the boundaries between self and other. These decisions determine the outcome of the observation. There seems at first glance to be no way out of this quandry. However, in multiverse interpretations, the universal set of each self is different from the universal set of other selves. Infinite or bounded, no two universes are exactly alike. Having defined a self, one has defined the universe that self exists within. Or, having sufficiently defined the universe one exists in, one thereby defines the qualities and conditions of the definite self.

In practice, self has to have limits. Self is particular, and has size. The size of self establishes quanta...It is not possible for any universe to be larger than some finite number of selves. Having established that the universe is of a certain largeness, it has to follow that there is also some certain smallness beyond which the limits imposed by self cannot go. It is not a coincidence that the Planck space and the Planck time are related by the speed of light. However, I am still puzzled about the exact numbers. How did Max Planck know, a hundred years ago, how large the universe is?

It seems to me that there may be considerable room for adjustment in the choice of numbers, that is 10 E-27 cm and 10E-43 s. Quantum effects occur at much larger scales....even, in the experiments in Colorado with Bose-Einstein condensates, up to the visable scale. It is certain that quantum effects are prevalent on the scale of the proton, a mere 10E-9 cm.

For this reason I suspect that the universe is much smaller than Max Planck thought it was, and the size of the minimum quanta is much larger. Or, the universe is much younger, which, in inflationary terms, is to say the same thing.

I seem to recall that results of the cosmic microwave background measurements indicated an age of about 13x10E9 for the universe. Multiply that by c to get the current size of the universe. The minumum size observable then is as much smaller than we are as the universe is larger than we are. Lets see, 10E9 lightyears, what is that in meters? Memory fails me yet again. Uh, 3x10E9 m/s, x60 x60 x24 x365 is what, 6x10 x6x10 x2.4x10 x3.65x10x10x10, that would be, uh, 3x6x6x2.4x3.65x10E9+1+1+1+3 is about 108x2.5x3.5 is about 108x10 so 10E18 meters? So by my logic the Planck length should be about 10E-18 meters, or 10E-19 cm. My innumeracy has given me a headache so please forgive me if I leave it at that.

Now I wonder what the mentats would make of all this. Any comments? I have to go patch my roof before the next hurricane hits.

Thanks,

Would something infinitely small be nothing or extreme compactification or is extreme compactification a very intense nothing? I am not joking although I may be accused of stating this poorly. Please excuse. I am severely challenged!
All this a LIFE too.

Hi S
I was half joking about hurricanes. I live far north and we have been having some locally severe weather, but the roof is no joke. I worked on it some today but will have to complete the job as permitted.

I think I know what you mean by infinitely small. That would be a small length divided an infinite number of times, right? There is a hot argument going on about something called zero point energy, and a lot of work has been invested in string theory which seems to depend on this very small point. The question has to do with what, exactly, is emptyness, or nothingness, or perfect vacuum. I have some thoughts on it but right now I have to go to work. I'll try to come back to this as soon as I get time.

Don't worry about being challenged. we are all little creatures in a very big universe, and it is those who don't know they are challenged who deserve our pity.

I admire your bravery in trying to think about these difficult things. Keep writing!

glimpse into the eternal.

what if, as crazy as may seem to the logical mind, space and time were infinite in the literal sense of the word? i mean, these calculated figures and small points in space could be limits to our thought processes. we think that atoms and the inherent small bits that energise them etc are fundamental, but what if our current technology and conscioussness is simply getting to a dead end: that there is no end. no beginning and no end just energy levels and tranferalls.

i know this does not seem practical, but maybe we should slow down and examine what we can examine, rather than that which we simply cannot.

just a thought, this string is fascinating. :smile:

YA! Thank you NC and Magus,
The strings are fascinating enough to keep some to the most profound thinkers busy, busy, but eventually we will need to discover, collectively, understand and agree upon the way that nature supports this Energy that is animating the universe. NOBODY wants to call it philosophy, metaphysics or worse, religion I realize from my years of experience with these researchers. But as I watch these incredible personalities around me I am beginning to think that GENIUS is what we shout back as we are falling off the cliff. They are the profundity we glimpse as we let go of all that seems logical and take that chance.
THEN we spend years working out the detail and suffering peer review.

Hi there Ringokid,
HERE GOES NOTHINGNESS..........!
How interesting you should bring up messiah. This is a beautiluf way of saying that we are all united in bringing in future understandings of peace and surrender to ""I AM", that I AM" Ein Sof, the (no end) (infinite light) before creation.
Question everything is the way to navigate the maze of visible darkness that hides the unifying truths from us. Not that we are not suppose to ultimately see and understand them, we are, I think, but as we collectively begin to use the physical knowledge we have to expose the non-physical underpinnings, we may begin to take the first steps to uniting the heart of the human family thus alimenting the lower vibration of anger, and violence, the color Red, and eventually function at the higher frequencies. This is how I understand the concept of the messiah to be an indication of which way the human family should be striving. Many traditions have placed an actual messiah on earth and there are indictions that we may even have one on earth in every generation. Still the same messiah different incarnations to fit the time and gently guide us a little closer to loving kindness. Perhaps one day we will, as a human family agree on an understanding that will allow us to hold on to this special person or perhaps we are a messianic generation to usher in these understanding that will aliminate and ahinalite the darkness that keeps us from experiencing nature in it's full excellence.

Perhaps there is NO G-d, which I think I understand G-d to mean when indicating where to look for him. But that is getting a little far ahead of ourselves...and way ahead of me in particular!!!!
I believe messiah comes from the hebrew word Moshiach from which one can take the name Moshe or Moses, a deliverer, Messiah also is found to mean "anointed above all his fellows". This could mean a generation or a single person or a generation that will usher in a single person. I tend to accept all of the above.

NOTHINGNESS is recorded in the Talmud in connection with Moses (Moshe), one of the first deliverers in this way.
With out going into the particulars of the Talmud, it essentially states in tractate Berakoth 7a that G-d says to Moses, look at the back of your head and you will see my back.
So with that I ask all of us to look at the back of our heads and say what we can see. (No mirrors).
What we can see is NOTHING.
That's WHERE it is.
Now, I ask all of us is it possible to map this NOTHINGNESS, since we know where it is, to leave off the religion and philosophy, that which makes scientific researchers break out in hives and take the next step to revealing the supporting lights or dimensions of this physical universe?

Did not want to go here but what's done is done!
I want to be buried in Long Island for those of you who would want to do that to me.

And no I do not know who or what G-d is.
But I am beginning to feel the love. And again whatever that is.
Unhumbly...cause I will never reach humility...

If we are going to make progress understanding what nothing is, perhaps we need to start with understanding what things are. The standard model of QM gives us many clues, based on observation and measurement, and string theory gives us a model that unifies the particles in QM. So QM gives us information about how matter-energy behaves, and ST gives us an idea about why they behave that way. But we still have not approached an understanding of what, exactly, a string is.

What is vibrating? And what does it look like when it is not vibrating?

Any thoughts?

I think a "string" is a unit/particle of consciousness embedded in the mind of God and I reckon it looks like a figure 8 when it's not vibrating which coincidentally (or not) is the infinity sign...

Hi RingoKid,
That is very interesting in that it would answer a question of where the information comes from that feeds into the physical superstring ideas.
How would the string of consciousness connect to the physical string? And what means you by referring to the mind of G-d, hence embedded therein.
Finally how brings you to conclude that the string somehow Twists? around to look like a figure 8? What happens at the intersection formed by the figure 8? An interface? A portal? A knot? A NODE? That's it A NODE! What happened to you? Someone hit you in the head with the Nobel Prize?
YO HO

Hey Shoshana...don't mind me I'm just extreme speculating hoping for feedback

So anyway, I reckon from a figure 8 the cross over point would be the dimension of time which is the constant for strings as it determines the rate of vibration for without time there is no movement anywhere. We never see it as a figure 8 cos it is always vibrating and you can't stop time. If you broke a figure 8 up you can get sections that are closed, open, straight, closed with tails, even x shaped depending on which dimensions the string vibrates through or across but the minimum would have to be 2.

The real string and the conscious string are the same. We, it, everything is all embedded in the mysterious M-braned 11th dimension that essentially is the mind of god we could call it nothing with an awareness of itself but God gives it a sense of purpose as opposed to seemingly random fluctuations in a field of pure energy

Imagine the breeze blowing over a field of wheat. The wheat moves, we can't see the wind or predict it's behaviour but we register the effect of it on the field which incidentally is embedded in the ground.

gee i hope that makes sense. It would help if I was a magic ride and you could buy tickets to inside my head

Hi back RingoKido,
Are you suggesting intertwined sine waves that puts these nodes at regular intervals? Is that node a point of absolute time? The essence of time as it is on the beat. Simply asking: Which dimension can we find a portal to back into the higher dimensions. ( I think this last comment will attract a full blown assault on my unseasoned reasoning) But there you have it.
Signed,
Hopelessly Relentless
 
uh yeah I think so ???

If at each point in 4d spacetime there are portals that enter into new dimensions and all connected to at least 5 others...

...as to which one, probably door number 11 but maybe to get there you'd have to try them all and all combinations there of. I reckon you'll only ever try the same combination once before they recombine to become a different "key" as it were. Only one special combo will unlock...

...the "gateway to dimension 11".

sounds like a b grade sci fi...eh ??? but in short i dont know yet am having much fun thinking about it.

It'd kinda be like a playstation move on a fighting game where certain combos of buttons and directions give you a boss move that kicks serious ass

Hi again Ringokid,
I and I is one...do you mean to say You and You are one? Or that 1 and 1 are 1, which in both cases you would be correct in the metaphysical/spiritual sense. Right?
You and you would be one in BOTH the physical and non-physical sense but one and one in the spiritual sense would be one also because in the upper realm, CLOSENESS is is SAMENESS, hence cow and cow =1, 6 and 6 =1.
To conclude, if a person wants to become ONE with the higher realms they divest themselves of the ego attempting to get as close to nothingness as possible.
Nothing with Nothing = Nothing

I'm having fun too! But as children play they unlock secrets that the adults are to conditioned to see.
I am convinced that the dimensions DO go through a continual realignment. Not sure this means that different combinations are needed to unlock the mechanisms because nature always keeps one step ahead of our investigation. By understanding the unfolding process, we can continue to predict some small amount of the revealed outcome.
I believe most of nature will remain covered simply because an abrupt revelation would overwhelm us and we would not survive. Perhaps because we will experience a kind of joy that our current state of awareness is not accustom to such light or truths.
Light, Light... turn down the light!

nonsense+experience=subjective insight

brain exercise and will for existential play,
there is there is not, there could be a way,
imagination is here or was just then,
but who's to say that nothing is real?
certainly anyone in my mind, as anyone in my mind is real, or unreal if logic is depended upon, oh what a thought, or a crystallisation!
as a mind collects the strings, the sense is made more believable,
not to say correct, but then truth to ones self is a start, no?
dimensions collide as eyes meet in the street,
(not one to trust the first glance, but always open to novelty.)
feelings towards or back are crucial too and crucial can't be proven,
but here and now, although never static, starts to remind me of a pen,
and the digital keys take over in their dash for balance, hurting the brain and its friends underneath, working in unison, without them knowing it (?),
any one else for that matter, which physically do not exist but of course still exist somewhere else, could probably tell one the same thing in a different way,
a way that is an interest of mine, maybe it is energy. at least this word will do, as it demonstrates time/matter in flux, many ugly ducks but wise they are may join and may get white and higher like that which grows green but is not eaten by cows!

ha ha....ridiculous {i say out loud, wondering whether or not to send this very post}

feelings towards or back are crucial too and crucial can't be proven,
but here and now, although never static, starts to remind me of a pen,
and the digital keys take over in their dash for balance, hurting the brain and its friends underneath, working in unison, without them knowing it (?),
any one else for that matter, which physically do not exist but of course still exist somewhere else, could probably tell one the same thing in a different way,
a way that is an interest of mine, maybe it is energy. at least this word will do, as it demonstrates time/matter in flux, many ugly ducks but wise they are may join and may get white and higher like that which grows green but is not eaten by cows!

ha ha....ridiculous {i say out loud, wondering whether or not to send this very post}
:smile:
A little chiken soup maybe? And some rest. Hope you feel better.
 
yes good advice, the chaos within ones own mind aint always pretty. :uhh:
re: ringo my mind ride/virtual reality game would be of a horriffic nature complemented (hopefully!!) by a sublime clarity later on....an up and down rollercoaster with non-violent balance combined with love of all being the ultimate goal?


whisper whisper winds move an essence natural but beyond our comprehension. time to meditate. :zzz:
 
hello people, there are some things that should be left alone for time to sort out, i can be one of those things.

with the questions of universality and unified truths, especially concerning nothingness, i have been contemplating thoroughly. to me, though i am constantly updating my own philosophy, at this point, i reckon there may not be any 'universal truths' (outside what is directly observable), UNLESS, we construct them. many people will obviously find issues with this, and that is the point of debate.

so, do we, should we, could we, construct or attempt to construct universalities? hmmm....am i avoiding responsibility? i mean, i could rattle on for ages with scribbles of thoughts etc. like the poem i posted earlier but that seems to deaden the room somewhat! :smile:

so by being more intelligable (not that this is a necessity), i am attempting here to reconstruct the debate about whether the persuit of knowledge of the unknowable/nothingness should have a unified direction, or whether it should continue as it is in a chaotic system where no rules apply.

can rules be placed on something so personal such as mind/soul/identity? all of which i would include in my curriculum of the unknowable.
