Science Out Of The Straitjacket: Rethinking General Relativity, E=mc2 … and String
I saw a video (“Hidden Dimensions: Exploring Hyperspace” -
https://www.worldsciencefestival.com/hidden-dimensions) in which it was stated that
mathematicians are free to imagine anything while physicists work in a very different
environment constrained by experiment, and that the American physicist Richard Feynman
(1918-1988) said scientists work in a straitjacket. Well, Albert Einstein (1879-1955) said
“Imagination is more important than knowledge” so let’s see what happens when we throw
away everyday tradition and conformity, let our imaginations fly (while trying to stay
grounded in science and technology), and thus release science from its straitjacket!
This little book has its beginnings in cellular automata (in mathematics and computer
science, collections of cells on a grid that evolve through a number of discrete time steps
according to a set of rules based on the states of neighbouring cells) and grew into a belief
that the universe (electromagnetism, gravitation, space-time and, as we’ll see, 5th
dimensional hyperspace) is not analog in nature but has a digital (electronic) foundation.
This belief can be supported by 11 steps that begin with an experiment in electrical
engineering at Yale University in the USA. These steps logically lead to assertions of
instant intergalactic travel, time travel into the past as well as the future (neither of which
can be altered), of unification of the large-scale universe with small-scale quantum
particles, that the universe is a computer-generated hologram, that everyone who ever
lived can have eternal life and health, that motion is an illusion caused by the rapid display
of digitally generated "frames", that the entire universe is contained in (or unified with)
every one of its particles, that the terms “computer-generated” and “computer” do not
necessarily refer to an actual machine sending out binary digits or qubits, that we only
possess a small degree of free will, that humanity could have created our universe and
ourselves though unification physics says a being called God must nevertheless exist and
likewise be Creator, and that Einstein's E=mc squared equation could be modified for the
21st century, reflecting the digital nature of reality. Though these things may be
unbelievable in 2011, we should not ignore the possibilities of their being true or of their
showing that reality is indeed digital because they are the logical product of already
demonstrated electrical engineering and trips into space, science is investigating time
travel and unification, the notion of motion has been suspect to some ever since the
ancient Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea (490?-420? B.C.) argued that motion is absurd,
and many religions worldwide speak of God and have some concept of survival of bodily
1) In July 2009, electrical engineer Hong Tang and his team at Yale University in the USA
demonstrated that, on silicon chip- and transistor- scales, light can attract and repel itself
like electric charges/magnets (Discover magazine’s "Top 100 Stories of 2009 #83: Like
Magnets, Light Can Attract and Repel Itself" by Stephen Ornes, from the January-February
2010 special issue; published online December 21, 2009). This is the “optical force”, a
