Redesigning physics foundations

We roll the dice for quantum mechanics

Using a sub-physical abstraction for quanta and interactions, our physicality is minimally sufficient, and has wide emergent coverage. Systems are self-generating and the mechanism is constitution-invariant.

The best bits

  • Gravitation, in the same mechanism as charge-based interactions (not a unified field);
  • A common quantum-chaotic picture for the coherence of black holes and particles;
  • A deterministic and solvable representation of vacuum, including quantum fluctuations, gravitation, charge, and other flux effects;
  • Asymptote-free, and not an 'effective theory';
  • A possible explanation for a matter/anti-matter imbalance during fermiogenesis.

Simple Foundation Rules

Our deterministic mechanism for physicality has simple rules, from which other detail emerges:

  1. Waves are bound in pairs as oscillators (bosons);
  2. Quanta propagate radially, with equivalence of phase, distance, and time, dφ=ds=dt , implying only time.
  3. Waves are excluded from interactions when they have the same phase and source;
  4. A boson's mass-energy is a function of its phases, ρ = b e i φ B φ A
  5. Other sources' waves are phase-modulated by ρ;
  6. Bosons collapse into a fermion where waves from two different bosons have value b at a unique point.

Minimal Deterministic Physicality Applied to Cosmology (2014)

Describes the emergent effects of a proposed deterministic mechanism for fermion interactions: (1) the coherence of black holes and particles using a quantum chaotic model; (2) wide-scale (anti)matter prevalence from exclusion and weak interaction during the fermion reconstitution process; and (3) red-shift due to variations of vacuum energy density. We provide a context for Standard Model fields, and show how gravitation can be accountably unified in the same mechanism, but not as a unified field.
