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...

Re: Are planets setting the sun's pace?

Riddle me this... an "orbit" occurs when all gravitational forces are in balance, so there is no net inward or outward pull, right? So HOW can "gravitational forces" be pulling all over the place, altering orbits and some strong enough to pull our oceans up in the air several feet (tides)? That does...

Re: Atomic Displacements in the RS

Can you describe your understanding of the term "scalar?" For me, a "scalar" is nothing more than a single variable, with a magnitude of 1..n, where "n" is a finite number. (Vector requires more than one variable/dimension.) Frequency of light we used is not the actual frequency of "aether", while a...

Re: Moon Race

Is it not possible that some of the NASA vehicles are simply a shell of sorts, and that "under the covers" somewhere is such a propulsion system? I'm of the opinion that a very high percentage, if not ALL, of their adventures are pure deception... including the purported satellites. However, if the...
