Space-Time and Quantum Mechanics

March 30, 2020


The connection between Space-Time and Quantum Mechanics
The idea that there is a 5th dimension outside of time and distance that has all photons, etc. (Photons, by definition are outside of distance and time – space-time.)
Here is more ideas connected to that.

SPACE/TIME, and 5-D (outside of space time.)

1.. Space time: SPACE / TIME/ GRAVITY/ MASS / DARK MATTER/ including Quarks, leptons, neutrinos, WHIM (warm-hot intergalactic plasma), CNB,(cosmic neutrino background).

2. 5-D (point-no point): ELECTROMAGNETIC, WEAK FORCE, STRONG FORCE, includes CMB cosmic microwave background.

1. Locality – each point in space and time is an individual with an independent existence
2. Quantum theory is widely regarded as non local.
3. When something is non local it has no position, it somehow sets outside space.


Conservation of energy – Total amount of energy is always the same. So energy cannot change.
Photons are outside of time and distance, and cannot change. Three of the four forces are outside of time and distance.
(Electromagnetic, strong, weak.
Therefore all energy is outside of time and distance, and in the 5-D.

POINT – NO POINT = all energy except gravity
The overriding idea so far is that all energy – all of it, except for gravity, is in a single point-no point, an eternal, no time, no distance, no change, conservation of energy, point-no-point, outside of space – time.
Photons by their definition are outside of distance and time for example.


Suggestion that if there is a 5-D, then this might cause us to reconsider both the Big Bang and Inflation.

IF 5-D is infinite and contains all energy except that in matter, then why did space-time begin? Why did space-time separate from or drop out of the infinity of 3 forces and almost all energy.

PM 1:35: The Big Bang was the moment when space/time broke away from 5-D


Renormalization is a mathematical technique of removing the infinities from QED … that baffled an entire generation of physicists. Dirac saw it as a way of avoiding fundamental problems and he continued to be critical of the method until he died. Feynman agreed saying renormalization is what I would call a dippy process. Having to resort to hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self contained. I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate.

Unlike the strong and electromagnetic forces the weak force cannot be renormalized.
however a quantum field theory that combines the weak force with the electromagnetic force can be.

The force of gravity cannot be renormalized.

Most likely subtracting out infinities is an illegitimate procedure.

A successful theory will most likely solve the problem of the infinities that is encountered in quantum field theory while at the same time providing an unified explanation of the four forces.

However we must conclude that QED and theories modeled on it provide a fundamental explanation for all natural phenomenon except gravity.

5th Dimension – Photons

March 1, 2020

Suggestion that photons are in a fifth dimension, separate from space-time.

Photons by their very definition are outside of distance and time. That suggests that for photons, there is no space or no time – no space time. Because they travel the speed of light, there is no distance between any two photons, and time is non existent,
They are not part of the four dimensions of space and time.
So if they are not part of the four dimensions of space and time then they are in a fifth dimension of no distance or time – or a single no-point, 5th dimension.

Bio Computer

Speculation: Your Body is a DNA computer.
Not 0/1 but base pairs G/C, A/T that denature at different temps. The Sun was the first programer.

Four Types of Aliens?

October 1, 2019

There may be only Four Types of Aliens

Start with this likely premise. Life starts the same way as it did on Earth and it’s based on carbon chemistry.

That means it most likely requires the following:

1. Liquid water.
2. Temperature range that allows for liquid water, 0-100 C
3. Earth size gravity that holds in the correct atmosphere and gases needed to start life.
4. Plate tectonics and land to allow for a shoreline.
5. Sun/star to provide heat in a day night cycle.
6. Natural selection that leads to the type of social behavior that leads to high intelligence.

Those requirements suggest that life planets will have most of these 4 basic biomes; water, air, land, underground.

Convergent evolution suggests that there are basically 4 ways to best survive those 4 environments.

That means that advanced aliens are either:
1. Swimmers – like advanced dolphins or sea dwellers
2. Flyers – like advance birds or air dwellers
3. Walkers – like advanced hominids or land dwellers
4. Burrowers – like advanced gophers or underground dwellers.

Dark – the Spaceman Song

June 20, 2019

“Dark”, song #2103 is about a single spaceman on his way home! Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar. (Lyrics below – headphones best). Recorded live!

(c) Tom Hendricks 2019

1. Dark It’s so dark out here.
Empty space and a portal full of stars out here.
Wanna go home, station home.
Rocket home, where I belong (BASS LINE)

2. Cold, it’s so cold out there.
Traveling in a bucket of heat in a frozen void out there.
Yaws to the left, rattles all day,
warning light froze, hope I’m safe.

3. (guitar)

4. Hello, hello, hello ….

Middle: Check the gadgets, check the meters
see the long long distance to go.
Fire the engines, push the throttle
a thousand miles to get me home.

6. Static … do you read me yet
waiting for a human voice to speak and guide me in.
Want to dock and walk again.
Want to bow down, and kiss solid ground.
No more AI – people again.

7. Hello, hello, hello ….
