Hacking Quantum Theory
Does your college teach you how to hack a theory? In Strings Are Dead, I hacked and invalidated all string theories with the flawed Tidal Axiom. Can we do the same for quantum theory? Am I going to be in real hot soup for suggesting this? Yes.
First note that the physics establishment is coming around to accepting the fact that there are major fundamental problems with their theories. Professors Steinhardt and Efstathiou, in their Kavli Institute video blog, and Professors Lykken and Spiropulu in their May 2014 Scientific American “A Crisis in Physics?” point to the real risk that their empirical data no longer supports their theories.
We all know how to hack a computerized system, find the weakest link, a bug or a password. With physical theories it is the same. The weakest links are the axioms (assumptions used in mathematics). These are usually stated but can be implicit.
Quantum theory is looking more and more like string theories, open ended – the more you research the more you find. CERN is adding more fundament particles in their search to unify everything. The latest are the pentaquarks. How many more particles do we need to add before we determine that either the Standard Model is complete or is fundamentally flawed? 20, 50, 100 . . . ? Maybe Nature’s design allows for an infinity of particles types and no theoretical physicist has proposed otherwise.
Nature shows us that from a finite set of elements it is possible to construct an infinite set of chemicals. Is this Nature’s design philosophy? To construct an infinity from the finite? Therefore, observing an open ended number of particles would suggest that we are asking the wrong question. —> Read More
