Perhaps the key breakdown of modern physics has occurred around the apparent irreconcilability of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity with quantum mechanics. They just don’t seem to fit. This dichotomy coincides with the loss of modelability in physics, somewhere around the mid 1950’s.
It occurred to me, as I was getting into the work of Ken Wilber, that in one of his works; Sex, Ecology and Everything he states that one of the inherent occurrences in psychology was that as different aspects of a wide range of research were uncovered, each was seen as a standalone conclusion. Freud saw everything in terms of sex and ego and id and this was thought to be the driving force behind virtually everything, Followed by Jung, B.F. Skinner, et al. all looking at pieces which turn out to be parts of a much greater holon. It was only as the “big picture” was pieced together that the obvious synergy, inherent in this aspect of evolution, became “obvious”.
We are doing the same thing in physics. Relativity and Quantum mechanics are both contained within the greater whole of Synergetics yet we are looking at each as a separate part. Mapping the sub-atomic particles is a logical first step.
I was recently sent and watched Nassim Haramein on YouTube. I was really shocked and thrilled to see a Physics Conference discussing the very cosmology I have been working on for the past 50 years, right down to the very models I have created. It was a strange feeling, like hearing Billy Joel singing a song you had written. But, I also realize how this is just an awakening to a new realm of potential research and I do believe all of this must be kept open source.
Upon further review, I got to several of the sites debunking Haramein and his views as expressed in the film Thrive, which many of you are probably familiar with. What I did get was that most of the items for which Haramein was attacked could be omitted (I had already) and the basic concepts still stand. It is often posited that any new idea goes through 3 stages; ridicule, vilification, and finally, recognition as obvious. Let’s see how it goes.
In 1943 Herman Hesse published a book entitled “Der Glasperlenspiel” for which he later received the Noble Peace Prize. In it he envisaged a society where the best and the brightest were encouraged to become practitioners of “The Glass Bead Game”, a system of notation similar to musical notation which any practitioner could use to explain any concept. It functioned much as mathematics does for science except that mathematics has a few flaws which prevent even the most avid devotees from always attaining competency.
I first read this book about 45 years ago and it left an indelible mark on me that I didn’t even consider until I realized, after re-reading the book after 25 years, that I have been looking for this fictional Glass Bead Game for all of that time. I was born a model builder, I think. I have done it all my life and I realized that the Universe itself hasn’t been modelled in any satisfactory fashion as near as we can tell. And yet, so many of us are striving for this very understanding. Isn’t this what humankind has always done? Sought answers? In an interview I can’t recall the source of, an Ultra-orthodox rabbi was asked if he thought his religion conflicted with his work in genetic engineering. As best as I can recall his answer was something like, “If God didn’t want me to figure it out he wouldn’t have put it in front of me.” Good answer!
