Cycle,

If I could twist your arm hard enough to really read and dig into this, I'll bet in a very short time many dots would perfectly connect. Granted, it's some tough stuff to get your head wrapped around, but it makes so much sense after five or more attempts digesting it. The problem I'm having is finding the proper math to work with it. Quaterions are close, a cylindrical coordinate system is close, but nothing matches Smith's description well enough to do computations. I'm no quantum physicist, so this stuff is very difficult for me to manipulate.

Anyway, PM me if you decide to take the plunge and I'll start a discussion thread for the topic.

Smith makes a few leaping assumptions without any underlying proof, he's reversed cause and effect in one instance, and I've uncovered an apparent discrepancy in his logic.

He states the universe is linear, then just paragraphs later, he introduces the concept of curl (the sixth parameter) as a consequence of divergence (the fifth parameter), as a consequence of change (the fourth parameter), as a consequence of volume (the third parameter), as a consequence of area (the second parameter), as a consequence of length (the first parameter).

A corollary of this is that Space is linear no matte[sic] where we investigate it, and this relationship must be accepted as fundamental.

The universe cannot be linear if it has curl. In fact, the theory of gravitoelectromagnetism is predicated upon the universe being

*non*linear. If the universe is linear, then the concept of geometrical transform cannot occur, which means space-time symmetry would be broken and electromagnetic symmetry would be broken... we'd live in a very strange universe with space and time being two completely separate things (so we could instantaneously travel from one place to another... or one time to another), all electrical conductors would be superconductors, magnets could not exist and gravity could not exist. Come to think of it, no invariant matter could exist, given that it is the combined effects of the electromagnetism of the quantum vacuum zero point energy field and vacuum polarization which underpins the stability of all invariant matter... so we'd not exist.

So he restates existing algebraic knowledge (length, area, volume) to build the foundation of his model universe, then somehow concludes that length, area and volume somehow bring about change (without stating the

*reason*... remember, the universe is deterministic, nothing happens without a causative

*reason*), then leaps to the conclusion that divergence comes from that change (he's reversed cause and effect here... divergence doesn't come from change, change comes from divergence), which somehow introduces curl (again, without any causative agent to do so, and in direct contradiction to what he'd previously stated about the universe being linear).

He then introduces a "counterspace" kludge, the Control Fabric... which cannot be sensed, measured or operated upon... but it makes his theory work, so it's acceptable to him. You'll remember how I ripped apart Ken Wheeler's 'counterspace' nonsense (in fact, given Wheeler's unattributed plagiaristic pilfering from so many other hobby theories, I suspect his 'counterspace' was derived from Smith's 'Control Fabric' or similar from another hobby theory).

And as if by magic, magnetism and electric fields come into existence with a wave of his hand... the electric field

*is* divergence! He moves on to discussing magnetism and electric fields, all without presenting any data or fundamental explanation as to how they come about in his model universe, he just equates divergence to the electric field and rolls on. His is a mental exercise sans any data, an attempt to explain the universe which falls flat in the face of actual data.

He then goes on to state that our mathematics isn't sufficiently advanced to tackle the concept of how matter came into existence:

Once Awareness has understood through the application of the Quadrature Concept, the establishment of the first nine Parameters, the further application of this Concept yields three more Parameters which bring Matter and Energy as we know them into being. Again, as in the Third or Control Fabric, we have no tools except our own Awareness and understanding to follow through the evolvement of this Fabric. The two higher Fabrics require much more sophisticated manipulations than our mathematics are capable of to show the relationships existing between the lower Parameters and Fabrics and the higher ones, and at our stage of evolvement we can reach them only through personal mental activity aided by hints and direction from others who have already passed this way.

He discusses electromagnetism prior to the above text, which means he must not realize that electromagnetism

*is* energy. He puts magnetism at the divergence parameter, long before he introduces the "Percipitation Fabric" (remember, an electric field is a magnetic field in a stationary frame of reference, and a magnetic field is an electric field in a moving frame of reference... they're two sides of the same coin). That's a logic hole, to add to the heap.

We know exactly how matter can come into existence, and we can even predict what conditions will bring it about, to an astounding accuracy. In fact, we can even make matter from energy ourselves, as the recent

three-photon experiment showed... the three entangled photons came out the other end of the rubidium cloud chamber at 100,000 times slower than the speed of light... a new form of matter (if it were light, it would have been traveling at the speed of

*light*) with invariant mass (light has no invariant mass). They found a way to set up a stable three-photon standing wave in the Higgs field, which is all that matter is... a stable standing wave pinging back and forth against the waves of the Higgs field, still traveling at c (pinging back and forth), but stationary from our frame of reference.

What's amazing is that the researchers didn't immediately recognize that they'd 'created' a new form of matter, describing it as light... and they didn't recognize that as matter becomes more complex, its energy level is lower (reference my recent post about copper having a lower energy level than its constituent components)... at least until iron (the most nuclearly-stable atom) is reached, whereupon the weak force and nucleon imbalance make successively heavier atoms successively more unstable... that's why we have the

Nuclide Map. They'll find that four photons entangle even more strongly, and five more strongly than that, etc. Somewhere along the way, they'll discover that they've generated neutrinos (arguably the lightest invariant-mass matter we encounter on a day-to-day basis).

We're on our way to a Star Trek type replicator which can make any matter directly from energy. Still a long way to go, but we've at least taken our first few steps.

I dare say that once they figure out how to reliably generate 'photonic matter' from energy, they'll be able to use the different forms of 'photonic matter' to represent different qubits in quantum computing, and from there it's a short hop to figuring out how to get those different forms of 'photonic matter' to interact to act as a data processor.

And it's only a matter of time before we discover how to capture photons and transmute them into electrons... meaning solar panels with nearly 100% efficiency. In the short term, I'd bet that by entangling two or three photons before those photons hit the solar panel, they'll find an efficiency boost, since longer-wavelength light (converted to 'photonic matter') would now have sufficient combined energy to knock loose electrons, whereas now most of the longer-wavelength photons hitting a solar panel do absolutely nothing but heat it up... so we'd have solar panels which even work at night from infrared radiation.

I'm not so sure I want to follow the teachings of a guy who claims he attained his knowledge from extraterrestrials, rather than from the hard work of reasoning and empirical data gathering.

I'll stick with Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory.
