Every old style, Newtonian theory in modern physics – which is all of them except General Relativity, do not fit well with GR itself. This is curious, as for instance the Dirac equation, the Standard Model, QM, QFT all work well with each other (hence the Standard Model). In an attempt to unify everything else with GR, the well worn (almost proven impossible by now one would think) trail is to quantize GR on some perturbed Minkowski space.

It doesn’t work. Or rather has not worked.

Since it’s virtually impossible to prove that something can’t be done in physics (see von Neuman’s ‘no hidden variables proof’ as an example), we are left with hundreds of PhDs per year being granted trying to add another brick to a wall that is sinking in mud, hoping that the mud is only so deep, so that another few thousand postdocs life efforts piled up will hit the rock bottom.

Examples provided on this site show how one can make electric fields, quantum waves and particles from nothing more than GR. Of course, it’s a minority viewpoint, one I’m willing to stand on.

In this essay I argue for the case of simply trying, in the sense of a toy model, to build parts of the universe out of nothing more than 4D, standard Einstein General Relativity. Its already the norm for a postdoc to spend a decade looking at some 2D toy model of a field that is known not to be able to work, just because it’s easier to do some calculations.

But apparently doing the same thing with a model (4D GR) that we know works extremely well is, well wrong, boring and silly.

I don’t think so.

Physics needs new trial balloons. To the fundamental physics establishment – you can’t actually pop a balloon unless you at least get it in front of you.

World Quantum Day, dark sector-World Quantum Day is April 14th, and as such I’d like to post this idea. Dark energy and dark matter – the entire dark sector – is composed of ‘quantum mechanics’. This is pretty far out, but it is World Quantum Day! Further details/assumptions. Expanded… QM is de Broglie/Bohm A popular enough opinion, but in […]

Open minds wanted. Not found.-Have to say a bit shaken by the attitude towards alternative viewpoints, (and Penrose!) in the audience. See 2m45s. @Perimeter? This opinion video has a few short excerpts from an excellent video on gravitational entanglement given at the Perimeter Institute on Sept 21, 2022. See PIRSA.org for the entire video. The most interesting bit is […]

Consider Only General Relativity-Every old style, Newtonian theory in modern physics – which is all of them except General Relativity, do not fit well with GR itself. This is curious, as for instance the Dirac equation, the Standard Model, QM, QFT all work well with each other (hence the Standard Model). In an attempt to unify everything else […]

Quantum statistics in Bohmian trajectory gravity-T C Andersen 2019 J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 1275 012038 – 9th International Workshop DICE2018 : Spacetime – Matter – Quantum Mechanics Abstract. The recent experimental proposals by Bose et al. and Marletto et al. (BMV) outline a way to test for the quantum nature of gravity by measuring gravitationally induced differential phase accumulation over the superposed paths of […]
