Re: Life Physics Group

If you have read through these already (a lot to go through), could you do a short summary and comparison to RS theory and post it here? The fact they start with a "unum" (unity) is a good start.

Re: The Universe as a Tree

In regards to the dimension problem, perhaps 1D and 2D motions are 3D motions, its just that 2 or 1 of the dimensions consists of motion at unit speed? Yes, it is true that the missing dimensions would be unit speed, but that does not solve the problem as unit speed is scalar --no direction--so it ...

Re: This physicist’s ideas of time will blow your mind

In the “elementary grammar of the world, there is neither space nor time—only processes that transform physical quantities from one to another, from which it is possible to calculate possibilities and relations,” the scientist writes. Golly... and in 1978, Larson concluded that "the Universe is not...

Re: The Universe as a Tree

It would seem to me that such trees would take up more memory for an object consisting of two atoms 1 inch apart than 1 mile apart., which would be wasteful unless distances are computed through some kind of a temporal indirection that embodies the reciprocal relation between time and space. Not re...

Problems with tree structures

I like the idea of using a tree for the computer model because the issue with existing approaches in conventional physics is that they use a euclidean grid which is the "stage" upon which events are played out, whereas the RS deals with motions that are the stage. With a tree you are only simulatin...

Re: The Universe as a Tree

Here is one of the original "quadtree" papers, done back in 1979. It discusses how to process trees for imaging, which is easily extended to the 3D octree. Remember that back in 1979, a computer with 16KB of memory was a LOT! I find these old papers very useful, because they concentrate on efficienc...

The Universe as a Tree

Recent experiments have led me to search for a non-mathematical approach to creating an RS2 universe, as math works for very simple structures but rapidly becomes overwhelming when even minor complexity is introduced. This led back to a study of how computers model an artificial reality. There are a...

Re: Newbie Questions

I feel I must have some fundamental blockage that's preventing me from constructing a RS world view. Everyone has been there... we are taught to think in terms of "things" moving in straight lines (distances) in an amount of clock time. In the RS, there are no "things," only speeds , so you have to...

Re: Newbie Questions

Q: How do we see the distant stars that are getting away from us? If photons generated at those stars are affixed to the underlying space-time progression, thus getting away from us as well, how do our retina and the photons from those stars meet, if this is still the mechanism of sight under RS? T...

Pressure, resistance, scalars, vectors

Larson never liked the word, "force." He referred to it as a "push." You got me thinking about the whole concept of pressure and resistance... all conjugates of conventional concepts: t/s: energy, conjugate of s/t, speed t/s 2 : force, conjugate of s/t 2 , acceleration t/s 3 : firmness/stiffness, co...
