Our Black Boxes
Can you theorize what is inside a car without opening the hood? We can put energy into. It moves. Sometimes it stops moving. But the actual mechanism of the inside of a car can't be seen by these experiments. We'll have this black box. Consequently it moves when there is energy and doesn't when there is not. It rolls down hills. But this car how it works on the inside can't be determined from these experiments And so are particles in physics the same as this car analogy? Will we have to settle for a black box model of our theory?
Theory before Experiment
The Pitfalls of Theory before Experiment
When you learned to walk what motivated you? Random experiment fire particle beams between random plates for the Casmir force
supper charge negative energy somehow.
Bend to beams together to gen those fields. yatta. What happens when? questions. that aren't getting explored because someone has to theorize first and THEN propose the experiment. So many things that haven't been done and that will not be done unless it fits into a theory. But practically solving the equations we do have is still a challenge.
how does it work? condensation of water on a surface?
And I mean what are the equations? Do you pick thermodynamics? What does the quantum mechanical vantage point look like?
Patent pending... Should be possible to build a more efficient laser using a paraboloid mirror and then half silver the end so that all the radiation is reflected out thus reducing need for cooling and complicated parts.
Almost Medieval Accelerators
It's almost medieval. We have to pull the handle on this giant slot machine of a particle accelerator and get whatever particles it feels like giving to us when we smash these things together. If there was a way to 'tune' an energy to matter machine to make only the particles we were interested in studying. That would be far more beneficial. And far more efficient.
[...] .. the original notion was thinking of a quantum corral and imaging growing it to huge energy levels and twanging it at the proper frequency to try to create 'just' the kinds of particles we want to see. etc. (Dec 2009) Resonating at the corresponding de Broglie frequency to see if you can generate bits of matter more reliably.
DNA Read Off
Could you adapt the enzyme that reads through a DNA strand to send signals for what base pair it's reading and then story that information rapidly to sequence the whole thing?
Most collision detection programs used a surface intersection method. But I realized nature doesn't do that. It uses probability waveforms so that's what I'll do in my program. I'll use a probabilistic surface and find intersections based on degree. I wonder if it will work more smoothly.
Does light have an observable range limit? (April 10, 2010)
And if we can't detect it then that might be skewing our perspectives of the universe. I asked myself if there was a limit to how far EM waves could travel in space. And I was thinking about how an EM pulse would travel outward. And that at some point after a distance R it would be so far that the average energy level per unit area would reach the Planck constant and be no more detectable than the back round static that the universe is saturated with. so when I drove home I grabbed my physics book and some paper and made some semi-quick calculations.
Perhaps physics will tell me that all I'm doing is reading the story of my life. Not writing it.
"It takes about an hour to get from 3 to 4 o'clock. It also takes about an hour to get to Orick. So traveling to Orick and waiting for 4 o'clock has something in common. However, there are far fewer bumps to get to 4'oclock."
