Your Global Time is ZERO This site will be officially announced
on March 14, 2004, to commemorate Albert Einstein's 125th birthday. If
the universe is ONE entity evolving along a putative universal time arrow,
there is no room for 'playing dice', since this ONE state will choose Let's not be frighten by this
ONE
state. It can be derived with the same notion of infinity, which we use
for calculating any "point-like" value of physical quantities or
probabilities.
It is the notion of
What if this ONE state is alive as
well? Welcome to 'Einstein and PHI'! Our goal is to discover the quantum
gravity of He Who Does Not Play Dice. The task looks very simple: discover
the mechanism of selection and actualization of one possibility amongst
many. However, it's not 'one out of 10 I don't think this task can be achieved with any probabilistic physics whatsoever. We need the quantum gravity of He Who Does Not Play Dice. Einstein wanted
to know 'His thoughts', and wanted to discover the phenomenon which can
determine exact,
point-like values of all physical
quantities. I call 'His thoughts' The causal field is a new kind of
reality, I anticipate severe resistance from the established physical community, since I strictly follow Einstein and do not talk about God with anthropomorphic concepts. We're talking science here. God could be a bare mathematical "point" hidden inside the instant 'now' from the universal time arrow. Always been there, always will. Unlike religion, this statement can indeed be verified. It's a matter of math and clear thinking. Nothing else. "The rest are details" (A. Einstein). The importance of Einstein's heritage
to the project of PHI (Physics of Human Intention) is enormous. The link
can be revealed in the postulated two modes of spacetime, global
and local. We can understand the global mode of spacetime with the
help of a simple experiment, which everyone can perform with her/his brain.
From the perspective of the Hence the local mode of spacetime
is being build from the propensities kept in the global mode: a The confusion is very old. The solution
is very simple: the nature of gravity requires these two modes of spacetime.
They can be revealed in both General Relativity
and Quantum Mechanics. The predictive power
of GR and QM can be explained with the global mode of reality which can
indeed be calculated for one, and only one, instant in the Then there is a great puzzle with the so-called gravitational waves and black holes, which many people persistently ignore. The input from the global mode of spacetime cannot be 'swept under the carpet' anymore. It strikes back as the puzzle of dark mass & energy and cosmological constant. Going back to the 1917 debate between Einstein and Levi-Civita, we can understand why both men were right: they were implying different modes of reality, global and local. From the perspective
of the local mode, Einstein was right: if the total energy-momentum of
a closed system would always be equal to zero, this would not allow the
existence of the system under whatever form in the On the other
hand, Levi-Civita was also right: the correct mathematical model of the
gravitational waves has to be cast in the But in the 4-D spacetime of the "Space acts on matter, telling it how to move. In turn, matter reacts back on space, telling it how to curve", says John Wheeler. This bi-directional talk "takes place" in the global mode of spacetime. The ultimate 'chooser' in the quantum ream is "placed" there, too. Note that in
the bi-directional talk between matter and geometry, the input from the
matter fields has to be cancelled
by the opposite input from its "just-created" gravitational field, or else
the metric won't by dynamical but will display some preferred reference
frame in the Thus, when we say that 'His thoughts'
are
not physical, we imply this last stage of total
cancellation (see 'the grin of the cat'), which
is not physical at all, in the sense of Einstein's argument
above.
It pertains to the Perhaps the
most important issue here is the The cosmological constant problem is produced from the erroneous search for the global mode of reality in the local mode, and all we can say, after Feynman, is that "we're missing something in our formulation of the theory of gravity." Sure, but instead of exploring the global mode of spacetime, which boldly shows up in the "timeless" mode of 'the only truly isolated system' in the Wheeler-DeWitt equation, most of the physicists are trying, one way or another, to eliminate it (a notable exception is Bill Unruh). How can we eliminate 96 per cent of the universe consisting of some "dark matter" and "dark energy", after the cosmological constant? How can we eliminate 'His thoughts'? In a letter to P. Ehrenfest on 4 February 1917, Einstein wrote about his attempt at introducing the cosmological constant: "I have again perpetrated something relating to the theory of gravitation that might endanger me of being committed to a madhouse. (Ich habe wieder etwas verbrochen in der Gravitationstheorie, was mich ein wenig in Gefahr bringt, in ein Tollhaus interniert zu werden; English translation by N. Straumann)" It was, in fact, a brilliant guess. Now, all we have to do is to spell it out with math. As a bonus, we could develop a theory of the brain, since all these ideas have originated from brain science and psychology. I sincerely hope that we can complete
this project by 30 June 2005, to celebrate Einstein's Now is the time to get ready for
GR17.
We certainly don't want to make him feel as a shoemaker on his 125th birthday,
and during the celebration of his

that the only possible way for such event to be embedded into Minkowski
spacetime would be if the relativistic "collapse"

misleading, decomposition of spacetime in geometrodynamics into 1-D "time"
and 3-D "space" is rooted on the seemingly
simple, and also highly misleading, case depicted on Fig. 1. (This latter
case is valid for classical mechanics and Special Relativity, such as the
dynamics of a train, and for objects not larger than the size of a planet
such as Earth or Mercury, because the effect of the Holon is negligible
and can be safely ignored: no "dark matter"
effects nor 'initial value problems' can be
detected at this scale.) As acknowledged by A.
Ashtekar, we are doing "grave injustice to space-time covariance that
underlies general relativity". Not surprisingly, the temporal evolution
was found to be frozen (the problem of time in canonical quantum gravity),
and there is no solution, not even phenomenological, to the task of the
timeless and spaceless
emergence of spacetime.

An email with the acceptance or refusal of my oral contribution to the Conference “Beyond Einstein – Physics for the 21st Century” (EPS13) will be sent to me after May 1, 2005.

My talk was rejected. Feel like having my mouth shut with duck tape, again. Just like in communist Bulgaria. What a shame. The topics of my talk were outlined
here.
I suppose we will celebrate Einstein's General Relativity in 2015. I have
