Default The Heisenberg Universe?

Very interesting:


"There isn't a precise instant underlying an object's
motion," he said. "And as its position is constantly
changing over time -- and as such, never determined --
it also doesn't have a determined position at any time."

Heisenberg uncertainty:

DxDp >= hbar/2

As the mean temperature of the universe continues to
approach absolute zero, could the universe transform
into a condition analogous to a "Bose Einstein condensate"?

Then it would start the process again?

Hi Chimp,

An interesting view of time, and one that seems intuitively correct to me. It also contains ideas similar to another thread on HUP, which I started here.

Thanks spacer 1.


Mottola and Mazur continue to refine their theory and are working on a concept behind rotating Gravastars. They even suggest that the universe we now know and live in may be the interior of a Gravastar.

An open universe of infinite space-time radius, is equivalent to a closed, finite, space-time compression universe. There are as many fractions from zero to one as there are natural numbers from zero to infinity.

Space-time is a quantity that is analogous to homogeneously distributed probability density gradients(a perfect fluid?) , giving the observed thermodynamic arrow of time. The observed cosmic expansion is a "relative" one! A "perspective effect" from our local vantage point. A shrinking object gives the illusion of receding motion. Increasing *refractive* density gradients give the appearence of a doppler-red-shift. Space increases density as matter is re-sized.

Space "density" continually increases as a function of time. Analogous to being inside a black hole, yet we do not feel the crushing force, because our atoms are shrinking in correspondence to the increasing density of space-time. We are, after all, made OF space-time.

Spacetime then "remembers" the input! A quantum measurement is made, the action principle demands the shortest distance between two points be taken, whatever that may be. There is no instantaneous action at a distance.

Total space-time energy is given by the Einstein-Pythagorean equation:

E^2 = {mc^2}^2 + {pc}^2

Space is at right angles to time:


The thermodynamic arrow of time, points in the direction of continually increasing space-time density. Increasing density gradients. It is a ratio adaption:

{S/T}_n = {S/T}_n+1

S and T are reducing in tandem, such, that their ratio remains a constant c, for the velocity of a photon of light.


Energy compresses{resists} space and dilates{stretches} time.
