Thanks, I needed that.

Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry

I was surprised.

I was just eating lunch by myself in the cafeteria.  I am attentive, not expressive, kind of guy.  Besides this was the first time I was visiting MIT, as a part of Artificial Intelligence (AI) conference.  No, my SATs were not good enough to get into CalTech (or MIT), and I am a west coast guy, anyway.

But, lo and behold.  He sat down next to me.  Obviously, to strike up a conversation.

Marvin Minsky.

Ok, now I wasn’t a kid anymore.  I was industry-based AI researcher (Hughes Research Labs, HRL) working at the time on Autonomous Vehicle research.   Minsky didn’t know me, but, I knew a fair amount about him.

Marvin Minsky, full professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and “one of fathers of Artificial Intelligence”, came to my table clearly because he was curious.  Minsky, a Fieldmarshal Rational, had been very successful in promoting his graduate students to getting academic professorships across the lands. The list of his PhD students is more than impressive. He had government and university funding. MIT is a technological power house.  Money, People, and Companies have been flocking to MIT well before I was born.

I tried to make our conversation as interesting as I could.  Hey, Marvin was a legend in my field: Artificial Intelligence.

After about 5-10 minutes of conversation, me doing most of the talking about the autonomous vehicle project that I had been involved with, Marvin excuse himself, and wandered over to another table with a couple of people and joined in that conversation.

He didn’t get any useful out of me, in his mind, no doubt.
Next.
He moved on.

Thanks, I needed that.

I did get something useful out of the encounter.
A slow idea. But not a fast idea.  A hint on a part of an idea on how the world works.
It was a Kuhnian moment for me, I knew some things that Marvin couldn’t imagine.

An Odd Even Ode Log Rhythm

“There is geometry in the humming of the strings,
there is music in the spacing of the spheres.”
— Pythagoras

Find Structured Constant: A Ode to Wolfgang

in-form == 1

ex-form == 0

form == -1

Now Moufang it and Emmy ring it two. Make Lise Bind. Oh, Dedekind bother, it’s a unReal hard cut.

But,
Never mind, Hilbert doesn’t bother. Such a Dehn mine-d vather.

MJ Golay to the re-scue, the Hamiltons and Hamming to rearrange and recode, the 23th Prime Poincaré to re-solder.

 

Two notes of the chord, that’s our poor scope,
And to reach the chord is our life’s hope.
And to name the chord is important to some,
So they give it a word, and the word is:

Di-vision

To Subquotient, or Not Subquotient,
That is the question!

The divisor status, of the lattice, oh my, Times, Rudvalis.

Crack the Dirac, Landau beseech the damp Leech.

It’s a Monster Conway Mesh, Mathieu‘s Stretch, Jacques‘ Mess, Janko‘s Sprains, and Einstein‘s Strain.

Never mind the mock theta, Ramanujan‘s gap, Namagiri dreams.

No Tegmark or Linde, but Verlinde in name. It’s all but Feynman‘s streams,
and weigh.

Such a Prime rank, any such Milnor‘s exotic sank.

No mess, no Stress, but Strain. Tensors Bohm and Bain.

It’s Held together. Dr. Keirsey is here to re-frame.

It Works! Much to lose and A Gain.

It’s Life Itself, More AND Less, a game.

Towards Quantum Formatics

bubbles

Gravity is a discrete form process in context.

Quan-tum:  qua – “in the capacity of”,  quan -“shortening”, quant-ity – “amount

Form-atics: form – “shape“, atics – ending for making adjectives or nouns, reification

Quantum Formatics:  the study of discrete form processes within context: a wholistic physical in-formation and ex-formation theory.

How and Why the World Works.

General Relativity(GR) and Quantum Mechanics(QM) have been the most successful science enterprises ever.   Discovering phenomena like black holes, the tau particle, gravity waves, and predicting precisely the orbit of Mercury, bending of light, the Teller-Jahn effect, the electron neutrino, and countless other effects.

On the other hand,

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” — attributed to Albert Einstein.

Intriguely, Eric Verlinde has proposed emergent gravity.  However, at this moment there seems to be no test that can include, preclude, or exclude his idea.  The concept of Gravity, whether emergent gravity, hoped for quantum gravity, implicit string theory gravity, or Einsteinian statistical gravity [in the form of General Relativity] essentially assumes some form of mathematical continuity, unspecified and under-defined.  Because there are at least six forms of continuity, for example, the following four: Continuously differentiable ⊆ Lipschitz continuousα-Hölder continuousuniformly continuous = continuous ; The real question becomes: which kinds of “continuity” is physically at the “quantum foam” levels?– and what are the relations between concepts (qualities) of various “spins”, “charges”, “spaces”, “energies”, “masses”, “distances”, and “forces”, with different kinds of “times”.

It seems clear that the present quantum mechanics is not in its final form. — Paul Dirac

Moreover, Quantum Mechanics (QM), using the crutch of Born-Schrödinger probabilities in the guise of Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein statistics, is a very very very precise, but incomplete.  Although probabilistic unitary quadratic forms (a “real” scalar product or action of a linear functional on a vector in a complex vector space) can help in calculating measures, there is no “definite qualities”.    At the quantum levels, one does not have separable “qualities” — just postulated mixed measures denoted by “quantum numbers” and “probabilitic measures” in the form of “real” and/or “complex numbers”.

Adding the two statistical conceptions: GR and QM has not and will not work.   A non-statistical methodology is needed to Relate phenonema at the scales of large (GR) and the phenonema at the scales of small (QM).  That methodology needs Relational Forms Frameworks.
