Wolfram's automaton and M-theory: four chains of reasoning
We have one real candidate for changing the rules; this is string theory. — Edward Witten
How can M-theory in some modified form explain dark energy? Is M-theory's physical interpretation a Markov branching process or a deterministic process?
Are there a huge but finite number of universes, which exist in matter/antimatter pairs? Do we live in a universe which is a tiny part of a multiverse in which every Big Bang recycles in about 81.6 billion years according to hidden determinism? Do you live for a few decades and then die, but automatically come back to life in about 81.6 billion years as precisely the same infant you were in the previous cycle?
Consider six components of a cosmological revolution: Wolfram’s automaton, M-theory, dark energy, dark matter, the space roar, and the GZK paradox.
http://wolframscience.com/reference/quick_takes.html synopsis of Wolfram’s ideas
CLAIM: Wolfram’s automaton serves as the computational method and physical interpretation of M-theory, because Wolfram’s updating parameter explains the space roar. Furthermore, M-theory with the Nambu transfer machine explains dark energy, dark matter, and the GZK paradox.
The symbol —> means “implies.” Here are four chains of reasoning that support the preceding claim.
First chain of reasoning:
(A1) Mathematical considerations concerning gravitons —> M-theory is the only path to the unification of gravitation and quantum field theory.
(A2) M-theory in some form must explain dark energy.
(A3) Hypothetical new particles and hypothetical dark energy stars fail to explain dark energy —> weird forces from alternate universes explain dark energy.
(A4) The only plausible way to use alternate universes to explain dark energy is to use Wolfram’s automaton with Wolfram’s updating parameter and a huge but finite number of alternate universes.
(A5) Wolfram’s updating parameter actually exists —> Wolfram’s updating parameter has a dramatic physical manifestation, which can only be the space roar.
(A6) Our universe is 13.7 to 13.75 years old, and Wolfram’s updating parameter actually exists —> during each Planck time interval a minimum amount of real mass-energy is converted into virtual mass-energy, and every Big Bang recycles in about 81.6 billion years according to hidden determinism.
Second chain of reasoning:
(B1) Einstein’s equivalence principle is completely true for real mass-energy.
(B2) Einstein’s equivalence principle is true for virtual mass-energy if and only if there do not exist weird forces from alternate universes. (THIS IS A KEY POINT because, unless the equivalence principle fails, the original field equations cannot fail and the model does not allow dark energy.)
(B3) Wolfram’s updating parameter exists in the form of the space roar —> there do exist weird forces from alternate universes —> both dark matter and dark energy are forms of virtual mass-energy that violate Einstein’s equivalence principle.
Third chain of reasoning:
(C1) Wolfram’s automaton exists in the form of the space roar —> the contemporary model of the black hole has to be replaced by a modified model which is finite and digitized and violates the Bekenstein-Hawking radiation law, thus predicting paradigm-breaking photons.
(C2) Paradigm-breaking photons actually exist —> paradigm-breaking photons have a dramatic physical manifestation, which can only be the GZK paradox.
(C3) Because paradigm-breaking photons escape from black holes their precise probability distributions can be used to precisely define Wolfram’s automaton in a manner similar to the way that Kepler’s laws were used to define Newtonian mechanics.
Fourth chain of reasoning:
(D1) M-theory is the only path to the unification of gravitation and quantum field theory, and Wolfram’s automaton serves as the computational method of M-theory —> there are two fundamental components to Wolfram’s automaton: the Fredkin delivery machine and the Nambu transfer machine.
(D2) The Fredkin delivery machine delivers Fredkin-Wolfram fundamental information into the digitization of the M-theoretical 11-dimensional domain, which derives from the smoothing of the Nambu transfer machine.
(D3) The Nambu transfer machine takes fundamental information from alternate universes and transfers it into approximations of physical reality in the form of quantum information.
(D4) Nambu quantum field theory is the bridge between fundamental information in Wolfram’s automaton and quantum information in quantum field theory —> the Nambu quantum field theory done by Witten, Seiberg, and others is fundamentally different from standard quantum field theory.
(D5) The actual definitions of Wolfram’s automaton, the Fredkin delivery machine, and the Nambu transfer machine require both M-theory and precise, comprehensive empirical evidence concerning paradigm-breaking photons.
What are the implications of the loose, conjectural chains of reasoning? There are two precise predictions, namely, the space roar profile and the f(div) theory, and one qualitative prediction, namely, paradigm-breaking photons. I believe that these predictions are extremely likely to be true because Wolfram’s automaton seems to yield the only plausible physical interpretation of M-theory. The Nambu transfer machine somehow uses 11 dimensions of Nambu digital data to construct finite, digital approximations to general relativity theory and quantum field theory — this digital construction process is what underlies M-theory. The Fredkin delivery machine somehow uses Wolfram's network to create the Nambu digital data.
Basic Claim 1. The mathematics of gravitons basically proves that M-theory in some form is the approach for the unification of gravitation and quantum field theory.
Basic Claim 2. The empirical validity of space roar basically rules out every plausible way of implementing modified M-theory except for M-theory as the smoothing derived from the Nambu transfer machine.
