Rules for Nothing!

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the search for reality, in particular the surmised global reality that encompasses all of us, needs to come from nothing. As mentioned before, space and time, as well as the energy within and the photons that form stable states (rings), appear to require a formation stage–from nothing. This gets tricky because nothing needs to be carefully defined, and that is hard to do when all we have sensed is something. We have no experience with what nothing is (I can hear you laughing there!). But seriously–the reason there is a problem is because what we think of as nothing, probably really isn’t. The zero-point state is not the lowest energy state possible, so spontaneous electron-positron pair production gets more likely the emptier our space! I have wondered if our vacuum is really just a state where no particles exist, but that’s not necessarily the same thing as nothing. You see why this gets hard? We really have no way of determining what nothing is. But, as long as we are aware of this, there’s nothing wrong with exploring nothing and trying to determine what models of nothing would give rise to this something we are all in. In the last post, I headed down the path of assuming that there is a type of nothing that has no rings, just linear photons. No particles, no mass, no time, and no spatial dimension. The interesting properties of a system of infinite scale allows me to envision that great complexity can emerge from tiny perturbations of a huge system. But that begs a couple of questions–what caused the perturbations, and why did identical/undifferentiable particles form, which appear to be a violation of systems of infinite scale (because all electrons appear to have exactly the same mass and size).

As I’ve thought about this over the last couple of days, it’s become very clear that a new mathematics is needed. We could call it the algebra of infinite systems. What kinds of rules can we make, what kinds of mathematical tools can we make that will allow us to handle systems with infinite possible range, dimensional capacity, and time. Can the concepts of motion, particles, and even the appearance of three dimensions and the coupling factor between electrostatic and magnetic fields be derived from rules of infinite systems? Could quantum dual-slit behavior or Aharonov experiment behavior come from such rules?

It’s easy to say no if we think of finite systems–no finite scale in either space or time will cause anything to emerge. And, we might be able to say the same about a system with infinite range, both in time and space–which brings us right around back to nothing. When there truly is nothing, it appears that you then have a system of infinite range both in time and space. Any finite perturbation cannot arise from a finite system without there being a something in or out of the system to trigger it. But a system of infinite range, which should include the class of nothing systems, may permit the existence of infinitely small perturbations–and our existence will form over a scale that can be thought of as zooming in, either large or small, to make the perturbations huge. This is possible only in a system with infinite range–we can become infinitely small (or infinitely big) and all of a sudden, we have a non-nothing system. A very hard idea to convey, which is why I want to formalize discovery of establishable rules for an infinite-range system such as a nothing. As I mentioned in the last post, there are two possible infinite-range systems, one that is truly nothing, including dimensionally, and another level which has photons, but no time or space because there is only one frame of reference. I actually can envision the second level emerging or perhaps being identical to the first. But what would it take for a perturbation (necessary for ring formation that then causes relative (to light travel) spatial and time dimensions) to emerge?

Right now, I don’t have any idea. Gravity? would that do something to the single frame of reference that would create a new dimension normal to the direction of travel? I am glossing over another question too, that is the first level is made of photons, lots of them, with no spatial displacement (since the first level has no space or time dimension). But how then does the interchange of electrostatic and magnetic fields work in such an infinite-range system? Darn, but that’s a challenging question. Perhaps the answer will become clear when we work out a set of rules for infinite-range systems. But be aware–it’s not clear that adding infinite range to a system means anything will emerge on its own. Maybe God must be here to trigger the Big Bang. But there’s no question–we should be able to start formulating a rigorous approach to analyzing systems of infinite range. We should be able to create at least a few rules about what *can* happen in such a system–and our existence, along with quantum mechanics and relativity and particle physics should be able to provide some directed analysis of how the existence came to be.

So: now, the time has come to ask–if there really is nothing, no dimensions, no energy, whatever, and infinite range, both in space, time, and in dimension, is possible–what rules can be derived? As always, we have to start by carefully forming our assumptions. And that is what I will try next.
