Introduction

I currently work as an independent researcher, in complex systems. My current project, toward a fundamental theory of quantum gravity, is based on the concept of self-organization, from which gravity is emergent.

Our latest iteration of the mechanics of fundamental resonant motion,

Draft paper of 4 August 2011. Scope is too broad, but results are interesting.

More on nonlinear time. Edits in repeated previous material, more added.

More reflections on non-linear time Picking up where we left off, repeating the last portion: The dynamics of nonlinear time are firmly founded in the concept of continuous function. Master expositor of mathematical concepts Keith Devlin (http://www.maa.org/external_archive/devlin/devlin_5_00.html) explained it thus: "1. The continuous function is...

over the years, I have made notes on related topics I planned to pursue in detail. Being now 75 years old, I doubt I will complete the work. If any of this resonates withe your research, use it freely.

Time is a process of decay. Entropy. It can be observed (measured) as a process, only in thehigher energy state—otherwise, one is forced to admit that one added energy to the state ofthe system by attempting to measure from below, “uphill” with a negative initial condition.

Radiation without annihilation UPDATE

Explaining the consequences of radiation without annihilation

A January Science contains a very readable survey article on proposed experiments by Overstreet, et al of Stanford University, designed to show the quantum scale curvature of gravity. The experiments are as important as they are ambitious. I make a comparison to the Michelson-Morley experiment whose negative result showed the non-existence of a lum...

I've never had an overly organized mind, and my relatively advanced age (74) hasn't improved this trait. So I'm presenting this file as "raw data" to which I want to keep adding until it makes some sense, or ends in nonsense.

Gravitational quantum mechanics This week's Science contains a very readable survey article on recent experiments by Overstreet, et al of Brown University, designed to show the quantum scale curvature of gravity. The experiments are as important as they are ambitious.

Addendum to neutrino/soliton experiment, with a new conjecture.

We revisit Einstein's relativistic theory of the non-symmetric field, in the context of Hilbert space complex dimension. We discover physical consequences of imaginary time on the extended complex space such that real results in the Lebesgue measure domain guarantee smooth metric continuity between classical and quantum gravitational fields.

We explore potential consequences of the "soft hair " revelation of Hawking, Perry, and Strominger, in light of the Bekenstein-Mayo definition for a black hole information channel. The origin of information at a black hole What does it mean for a particle to pop out of existence, leaving behind a black hole singularity? 1 Can a 1-dimension informat...

Soliciting institutional and academic interest for two large-scale experiments in quantum gravity.

Followup to 6 April 2017. May look a little crazy at this point, though if one accepts spacetime as physically real, everything falls into place.

In introducing general relativity, Albert Einstein, following Hermann Minkowski, was compelled to allow that neither space nor time are physically real; only a union of spacetime survives the test of physical measurement. In the same spirit and for the same reasons we ask whether information survives the test of real physical measurement, independe...

Seeking feedback on this unfinished 2012 draft

This isn't actually a preprint. RG used to have a category called "working paper." Just to explain why it is rough and incomplete. I wanted to expose it to criticism--I think it's ready.

Can gravity be derived from first principles, independent of quantization? Because gravitation is intimately tied to dimensionality, we find a path to gravitational emergence ground-up, from a set theory model of self-organized spacetime. As a consequence, gravity has its origin in complex systems science.

As the atoms of arithmetic, prime integers have important and generally understood applications to the one-dimension line of natural integers, N*. Here we introduce a two-dimension expansion, by modular arithmetic, of a prime sequence that we conjecture is unique for being closed under modular continuation; i.e., there are no higher prime pairs, mo...

Ask an experimental physicist to describe reality, and she might speak in terms of discrete events—clicks, flashes, particle tracks. Ask the same of a theorist, and he might speak of the continuous phenomena of curves, symmetries, dynamic motion. Pressed hard enough, though, both will likely reach the same conclusion: reality isn't important to wha...

Andrei Khrennikov’s quest for “... an intuitively clear probabilistic model ...” of quantum mechanics leads to the question of how a distribution of probable events becomes a certain quantum measurement. “In really contextual probability theory we should be able to work not only in one fixed context, but also to describe transformations of probabil...

Mathematics is not physics. Rationally speaking, though, a physical result that corresponds one-for-one to a mathematical model forms a closed logical judgment on the truth of a falsifiable physical theory. Because it is not possible to make a closed logical judgment on physical probability for more than two possible outcomes of one event—no mathem...

We show how mod 4 and mod 8 cyclicity -- in a correlated 2-sequence set of Sophie Germain primes -- reverses spacetime trajectory without changing geometric chirality. We find the quantum jump phenomenon to be time dependent.

We identify specific properties of the complex plane that allow functions of a continuous n-dimensional (Hilbert) measure space to be transformed into a well ordered counting sequence. We discuss proof strategies for problems in number theory (Goldbach Conjecture) and topology (Poincare ´ Conjecture) that suggest correspondence between the physical...

This is the original 27-pg text of the paper published in the proceedings of ICCS2006, before it was cut to conference size. I am making it available due to this news from Princeton:

The first problem in detecting and confirming ETI contact is differentiati ng ETI from TI. The second problem is formulating a theory or set of theories, with testable hypotheses, which would allow such differentiation, and make meaningful the research data which results from such tests. This paper identifies the means of differentiation, and sugge...

If time is n-dimensional continuous, n > 4, time has a physical meaning independent of space. We construct a theory, precisely supported by WMAP observational evidence and consistent with special relativity and quantum field theory, that gives time an active role in the cosmology and self- organized sustainability of the universe. Our complex syste...

The attached draft: "Schanuel's Conjecture and the n-sphere kissing problem, an unexpected relationship" was started and abandoned about 10 years ago, Pieces of it have appeared in some of my other research, and I feel the main idea might yet be salvaged.
