Gravity, Part II

Part I, II, III

Abstract

In Part I, I explained the nature of physical cause and I described the main differences between Newtonian and Einsteinian gravity. In this post, I argue that gravity is a non-local phenomenon, meaning that it involves action at a distance. I also argue that gravity is nature’s way of correcting a violation of the principle of energy conservation. If you have not already done so, please read Physics: The Problem With Motion and Understanding the Lattice before continuing.

Action at a Distance

Albert Einstein notwithstanding, there is nothing magical or spooky about action at a distance. The spookiness is only apparent. It disappears as soon as one accepts that distance is an illusion of perception. The truth of this is no less valid than your reading this article. The abstract nature of space (i.e., distance or volume) is something that can be easily demonstrated with simple logic and I have done so elsewhere. The logic of nonspatiality is as solid as can be. Briefly, the reasoning is that the existence of space leads to an infinite regress. Consequently, given that distance is an illusion, so-called nonlocality is not the exception but the rule. Thus nature has no problem correcting violations to its conservation principles regardless of the apparent distance between causes and their effects. There is no violation of the speed of light limit because no motion is involved.

I realize that many will have difficulty with the concept of nonspatiality. One of the questions that immediately arises is, if there is no distance, what is motion? The answer is based on the premise that position is not the property of some extrinsic space but one of the intrinsic properties of every particle. Hence motion can be defined merely as a change in the positional property of a particle. This is not entirely unlike virtual software objects in a 3-D video game. The position of every object in a game scene is just one of the properties of the object. This property is all that is necessary to locate the object. Sure, we perceive objects as being located in different places in our field of view but it’s only because this is how positional information is organized in our brain’s neural network.

One cool outcome of nonspatiality is that it should be possible for an object to move from anywhere to anywhere instantly. There is no reason that the position of a particle cannot be changed by an arbitrary amount, without going through the intervening positions. Nothing is impossible as long as nature’s conservation laws are obeyed. In the future, once we figure out the full physics of position control, we will develop technologies that will allow us to travel great distances instantly. The deep consequences of such empowering technologies are too vast to fully contemplate at this time.

Stealing Energy from the Lattice

As I explained in my series on motion, a particle moves by undergoing a series of interactions. It follows that normal matter is immersed in an immense 4-dimensional lattice of energetic particles. What is important to grasp, within the context of understanding gravity, is that the entire visible universe is moving at the speed of light along one of the four dimensions of the lattice. According to my causal motion hypothesis, it takes an uninterrupted (no wait periods) sequence of interactions with equally energetic lattice particles in order to sustain the motion of a particle at the speed of light. In orders words, at every instant, it takes the energy equivalent of the entire universe to move the universe a single discrete distance along the fourth dimension. That’s a lot of energy but it’s nothing compared to the energy contained in the lattice.

A problem arises if there are many particles in a relatively small area. This increases the probability of interactions. Whenever two or more particles interact, they temporarily have equal positions. The problem is that there is enough energy at that position to move only one particle at a time in the fourth dimension. It’s a problem because every particle must move at c in the fourth dimension no matter what. Why? Because that is the nature of the special property that keeps all particles moving at c in the fourth dimension.

Nature solves this problem by temporarily borrowing energy from the lattice. As a result, an imbalance is created. An imbalance is, of course, a violation of energy conservation and nature tries to correct it at the earliest opportunity. It does so by moving more matter (or energy) toward the source of the imbalance. This is manifested as gravity.

Coming Up

In Part III, I will explain why gravity obeys an inverse square law and how the force of gravity can be calculated from first principles. Hang in there.

There's some very interesting ideas in this post, cheers. Looking forward to the next post.

hmmmmmmmmmm

Very interesting, man. I'll hang in 'til you're done.

Very interesting, but it raises more questions than it answers, at least for me.

Where in the lattice does nature borrow this energy from? If it is from seraphim, then to keep things moving in the 4th, it would have to borrow from the 4d faced seraphim. But if those are the only seraphim involved, then how is it they cause motion in the other 3 dimensions?

Can it borrow this energy from other types of particles?

Also, just as a statement, it is amazing that the solution to positional conflicts is also the cause of nearly all positional conflicts.

Yes. As you know, there are four types of seraphim, one for each of the four dimensions. The seraphim that are associated with the fourth dimension (I call them electric seraphim because they are responsible for the electrostatic field) provide the energy needed to keep all the particles of the visible universe moving in the fourth dimension at c.

When I say that energy is borrowed from the lattice, it's just a manner of speaking because no extra energy is actually taken from the lattice. The moving particles simply have an energy deficiency or imbalance and this imbalance is associated with fourth-dimensional properties.

But if those are the only seraphim involved, then how is it they cause motion in the other 3 dimensions?

Remember that all seraphim, including electric seraphim, have six wings, one pair for each of the three familiar spatial dimensions. This means that they can all move in 3-D. This is the reason that the electric seraphim that are continually jettisoned from an electron, for example, can interact with other charged particles and make them move in 3-D. Of course, movement in 3-D cause interactions with the other three types of seraphim which, in turn, give rise to magnetic phenomena.

Having said that, I must add that the mechanism of gravity does not depend on the 3-D motion of electric seraphim. Gravity is a by-product of the interactions of electric seraphim with matter as they move in the 4th dimension.

I know, this is getting a little too complex for my taste. I hope to create a little animation video, one of these days, in order to make the whole thing more intelligible. More on this in my next post.

Also, just as a statement, it is amazing that the solution to positional conflicts is also the cause of nearly all positional conflicts.

Yes indeed. Solving one conflict results in the creation of another. This is how motion is maintained in the lattice.

So, if I understand you correctly: The illusion of entanglement occurs when two particles occupy the same position (e.g. equal positions) at the same time? Naturally within the context of terms like 'time' and 'position' which are themselves a misinterpretation of a solid state universe.

Seems like even with a comprehensive understanding of 'position control', it will not be exceedingly easy to exploit the natural conservation of energy.. considering that as a natural and observable phenomenon things stay more-or-less in their predicted potions.

If it was easy to dislodge them I suppose we would experience things jumping across the universe on a more regular basis.

Sorry, I am not sure I understand the question. In my opinion, entanglement between two particles is not an illusion. However, I would not call it entanglement. It's just nature correcting violations to the principle of "spin" (orientation) conservation. There is no real connection between the two particles. This is the reason that "entangled" particles do not remain "entangled" forever. Some other phenomena may change the "spin" balance and break the apparent entanglement.

If it was easy to dislodge them I suppose we would experience things jumping across the universe on a more regular basis.

Well, speaking as a Christian, I believe that this sort of long-distance jumps happens all the time. Some advanced beings seem to have that capability. I have read New Testament accounts whereby an entire group of people was instantly transported from one place to another. It seems that the Bible is way ahead of sci-fi authors in this regard.

Having said that, there is really no need to invoke religion to find evidence on long-distance jumps. Quantum tunneling is a known phenomenon, one for which physicists have no adequate explanation. Admittedly, we do not observe quantum jumps happening over great distances but we do observe particles going right through physical barriers as if there were no barrier. Field effect transistors work on that principle.

Hi Louis,

The lattice particle image resembles a 3d coordinate system we programmers use for game development. I'm not sure if that was your intention or not, but its identical.

If you can help me get my head around this, I would happily develop realtime 3D representations of this. I'm a professional game developer and all this makes for interesting explorations, if not gameplay mechanics.

Well, it was not my intention but it is not coincidental either since lattice particles use a 3-D wing mechanism for 3-D motion. What is not shown in the image is the special property (feet) that is used for motion in the fourth dimension.

Excellent. I may take you up on it at a later date.

What the hell for a fucking nut you are, can't you go back to school. People like you are the trash of the internet, that once started as a whole new system for knowledge. And all those nutty disciples of you, cannot they think for themselves. I'm out of here, I spit on people like you, get bachk in your trashcan and be happy fot ypurself but leave us allone, whores of satan!
