GW150914 – Enormous Gravitational Wave Energy

Eureka! The Ligo measurement is the greatest thing to happen in Physics and Astronomy for decades. Amazing work. It was about 50 years ago that the first gravitational wave detector was built by Weber. It took 50 years of refinement, many PhDs postdocs and full careers, but the LIGO team did. it. Observation of Gravitational Waves… More GW150914 – Enormous Gravitational Wave Energy

Can a sub-quantum medium be provided by General Relativity?

Can a sub-quantum medium be provided by General Relativity? Thomas C Andersen, PhD As a personal note of celebration, Art McDonald, the director of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory has won the Nobel Prize in Physics. I worked on SNO for 8 years for my masters and PhD. The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory also shared the Breakthrough… More Can a sub-quantum medium be provided by General Relativity?

Removing the Speed of Light as a postulate

The Speed of Light The speed of light limit is at this point a postulate of physics, which is necessary as: Electromagnetic Radiation travels at c. Maximum speed of particles is c. (Lorentz equation). Relativistic QM – depends on c as a postulate. Strong force. more… These are in the Standard Model disparate fields and laws.… More Removing the Speed of Light as a postulate

Couder’s memory effect – could it be real?

Yves Couder’s (and others) experiments with small (in the human sense) and absolutely huge (in the quantum sense)  silicon oil droplets and baths have proven to be a wonderful analog for quantum mechanics. There are many researchers who think that these experiments show something much more – they hint at what the microscopic quantum world… More Couder’s memory effect – could it be real?

Einsteins Aether as the Inviscid Fluid for Brady’s Sonons?

The Aether Einstein: We may say that according to the general theory of relativity space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists an aether. According to the general theory of relativity space without aether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also… More Einsteins Aether as the Inviscid Fluid for Brady’s Sonons?

Cosmic serendipity – not censorship

Cosmic Censorship: Weak or strong, the cosmic censorship conjecture states that naked singularities can’t be seen, otherwise everything will break down, it would be really bad and worst of all theorists would be confused. But it turns out that singularities very likely don’t actually exist in a real universe governed by GR. Any lumpy, non symmetric… More Cosmic serendipity – not censorship

An Electron model from Gravitational Pilot Waves

Abstract An electron model is presented where charge, electromagnetic and quantum effects are generated from pilot wave phenomena. The pilot waves are constructed from nothing more than gravitational effects. First the general model of the electron is proposed. Then the physical consequences are laid out, showing that this model can generate large electron – electron… More An Electron model from Gravitational Pilot Waves

QM from waves – pilot waves.

I start with a screen grab from the video below. Yves Couder and friends are clearly looking at hidden variable theories: Here is a 3 minute movie with the above slide: The pilot-wave dynamics of walking droplets Here is a paper about eigenstates, etc… Self-organization into quantized eigenstates of a classical wave driven particle  (Stéphane Perrard1, Matthieu… More QM from waves – pilot waves.
