The Very Brief Summary
Logic dictates that we cannot use physics to tell us about any, ‘reality’ that enables us to create that physics in the first place. So a theory of everything must be based upon a new paradigm to enable us to understand the reality that exists outside of our own measurements and of consciousness itself.
TES proposes that some sort of, ‘stuff’ exists independently of consciousness and it is the complex behaviour of this stuff that gives rise to us and our perceived universe.
We can never know the true nature of the stuff because our physical being, our consciousness and measurement processes are all behaviours of it (hence, ‘enigmatic stuff’).
What we can do is treat the stuff as a generalised complex system, make a minimum set of assumptions and then apply the general characteristics and behaviours of complex systems to it.
Basic assumptions about the stuff:
- The stuff exists in a, ‘stuff-space’, which can never understand and is likely to be very different from our perception of space (our-space).
- There is no need for a, ‘stuff-time’. The stuff just evolves through continual interaction. Time has no meaning to the stuff.
- There are different types of stuff and they can interact with each other.
- The system of stuff has intrinsic characteristics that enable and limit the dynamics; otherwise it would have truly random behaviour from which it is unlikely that coherent order, such as our universe could emerge.
- We can hypothetically consider discrete components of stuff for the purposes of analysis.
From this description we can assert:
- ‘Consciousness’ must be a behavioural characteristic of the stuff.
- There are two distinct, ‘realities’; firstly there is the perceived reality that is generated from measurement and consciousness and from which we have developed physics. Secondly there is the Objective stuff reality that exists even if we don’t and of which we can infer very little.
- Our perceived reality is born of continual interaction within the stuff. This means that physics describes sets of interactions and behaviours of stuff but not stuff itself. For example, ‘mass’ is not a characteristic of the stuff, but is defined by a specific set of interactions that end in a perception.
Let’s assume that (as can happen in complex systems) a region of the Mesh undergoes spontaneous self-organisation and instantaneously over this region emerges a fractal-like Mesh. This mesh is made from certain types of stuff (mesh-stuff) and consists of boundary regions and voids. All the other stuff (not Mesh-stuff) moves within and interacts with the Mesh. Think of a mixture of liquids in which one or two reach their freezing point.
Now assume that the boundaries can quell the ability for certain types of other stuff within it to interact with the other stuff in the voids (except right on the interface between the boundary and the void).
Given this Mesh and its characteristics we can develop a theory that has the following consequences:
- The voids in the Mesh become, ‘measurable space’ but the boundaries and the stuff within them can never be measured. A measured region of our space is a contiguous set of voids.The voids and the boundaries will vary in relative scale depending upon the local dynamics.
- There was no big bang, but a sudden and region wide emergence of the Mesh. This approach eliminates the need for an ‘inflation phase’ in the Big Bang theory (maybe the inflation phase is telling us that TES is correct). TES also eliminates the need to explain the matter anti-matter asymmetry because it was just part of the initial condition required for the emergence of the Mesh and not a consequence of the early dynamics of the Big Bang.
- Dark matter is the stuff in the boundaries that we cannot interact with (measure) but this hidden stuff can affect the stuff in the voids at the void-boundary interface.
- It is possible for the other stuff to travel across the Mesh with the boundaries slowing down the propagation of the pattern and also distorting, or bending it.
- We can then develop a consistent model that gives rise to all the measurable relativistic effects including relativistic mass variations, spatial distortions and constancy of the speed of light.
Time is a measurement of some periodic stuff interaction that depends upon the characteristic of the local voids and boundaries that constitutes measurable space. So measurable space and measurable time are intimately related and it is no surprise that Einstein created a space-time paradigm, although space-time is NOT a characteristic of objective stuff reality, but only of our perceived (measurable) reality.
- Because the Mesh is fractal sequential voids have a scaling factor (get larger or smaller). If we consider a measurement sensor and increase its size from the smallest possible to the largest we can show that the ratio of the amount of Mesh boundary to that of void changes. For small scale sensors there is a lot of boundary and this can be shown to generate measurements that are quantum-like. Intuitively we can see that certain states of the pattern of stuff are lost in the boundaries and hence there are, ‘jumps’ in the potential measurement state space. As the sensor gets larger the boundaries have less effect and we observe continuous or classical like measurements.
- If we consider very small sensors then through computer simulations I have shown that potential measurements (state space) become discrete, individually random but statistical over a sequence. TES can also explain many of the other (theoretically unexplainable) quantum effects such a superposition, entanglement and Heisenberg uncertainty.
- The TES measurement model can explain why the mathematics of quantum theory is based upon linear superposition.
- If we represent a measurement interaction in the TES model as stuff patterns and states then it is possible to start to generate a mathematical (algebraic) description that is strikingly similar to the mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics.
- TES also gives meaning to why quantum field theory and string theory are approximations to the TES Model.
- Because our quantum measurements are consistent in space and time it suggests that we exist in a part of the mesh where the boundary and void relationship is pretty consistent. To us this local region may be at an astronomical scale, but at cosmological scales the voids become vast. If you carried out experiments in one of these voids then there would be NO MEASURABLE QUANTUM EFFECTS, however there would still be measurable matter and electromagnetic radiation (light, x-rays etc). THE PHYSICS OF COSMOLOGICAL DISTANCES IS DIFFERENT.
- It can be shown that when light travelling cosmological distances enters our region the boundaries extend the light’s wavelength and hence we measure a red shift. The red shift has nothing to do with the expansion of the universe it is a characteristic of the fractal Mesh.
