Edward Witten wins the Nobel Prize? Why? Because of the genius of Wolfram
… Finite Nature assumes that there is no thing that is smooth or continuous and that there are no infinitesmals. — Edward Fredkin
Why should anyone pay attention to Edward Fredkin, Stephen Wolfram, and David Brown? Consider the following 3 conjectures:
(1) The one and only explanation of dark matter is the f(div) theory of modified general relativity theory. A consequence of the f(div) theory is that for a large set of photons, some would travel very slightly faster than the speed of light — these would escape into alternate universes and contribute to dark energy in our universe and also contribute to dark matter elsewhere in the multiverse; other photons would travel very slightly slower than the speed of light — these would be associated with virtual photon mass and contribute to dark matter in our universe and also contribute to dark energy elsewhere in the multiverse. According to the f(div) theory, dark matter is the result of a steady influx of virtual photons from alternate universes.
(2) The one and only explanation of dark energy is the nonzero cosmological constant in general relativity theory.
(3) The one and only explanation of the GZK paradox consists of paradigmbreaking photons emitted by black holes. (Black holes are digital in nature.)
What is wrong with Mtheory as of the year 2009 CE? Consider Wolfram’s cosmological hypothesis:
THE MAXIMUM PHYSICAL WAVELENGTH EQUALS THE PLANCK LENGTH TIMES THE FREDKINWOLFRAM CONSTANT.
Is Wolfram’s NKS Chapter 9 the first basically accurate conception of the mobile automaton that gradually builds time, space, and energy from an informational substrate below the Planck scale? Do Mtheorists need Wolfram’s ideas?
Consider Wolframian protophysics, Nambu quantum field theory, and quantum field theory. Have Mtheorists made the mistake of assuming that Wolframian protophysics does not exist? Have Mtheorists made the mistake of believing that Nambu quantum field theory has some type of generalization of the gauge theory found in quantum field theory? Is Nambu quantum field theory the structural theory obtained by smoothing out the Nambu transfer machine? Is Wolfram the supreme genius whose ideas allow Nambu quantum field theory to be used to make empirical predictions?
"Crudely speaking there is waveparticle duality in physics, but in reality everything comes from the description by waves, which are then quantized to give particles. Thus a massless classical particle follows a lightlike geodesic (a sort of shortest path in curved spacetime), while the wave description of such particles involves the Einstein, Maxwell or YangMills equations, which are much closer to the fundamental conceptions of physics. Unfortunately, in string theory so far, one has generalized only the less fundamental point of view. As a result, we understand in a practical sense how to do many computations in string theory, but we do not yet understand the new underlying principles analogous to gauge invariance." — Edward Witten, “Reflections on the Fate of Spacetime” http://www.sns.ias.edu/~witten/papers/Reflections.pdf
Does Nambu quantum field theory possess underlying principles analogous to gauge invariance? Does Nambu quantum field theory enable the computation of empirical corrections to the BekensteinHawking radiation law? Is the main game in Nambu quantum field theory to calculate the probability distributions for paradigmbreaking photons?
Note added Feb. 23, 2011 CE: I now think that Mtheory has two physical interpretations: a Bohrian interpretation within quantum field theory and an Einsteinian interpretation within hidden determinism. My guess is that Mtheory predicts the RañadaMilgrom effect, which implies that the 1/2 in the standard form of Einstein's field equations should be replaced by 1/2 + sqrt(15) * 10**5. (See the posting "Dark matter: why should Rañada and Milgrom win the Nobel prize?" at nks forum applied nks.)
