I have been busy trying to bring a product to market so I can spend more time doing the things that need to be done and I enjoy. I hope that I will be able to ensure that the workers are paid well, but will still have to play the game until it changes. Took a break, watched a couple of TV shows on physics and the universe. Thought I would share some rambling thoughts.
The preferred state of the universe as others have said is due to entropy and is a ground, zero energy, non-motion, thermal equilibrium, etc. The probability of a complex system breaking down into disorder is quite high and is one of the most reliable interactions in the universe. The probability is so high that we should not be here unless there is a mechanism to restart the cycle.
All this talk about cats in boxes makes me laugh. It is funny because I have a cat and I can tell you as time increases, the probability of my squid for brain cat knocking over the poison and killing himself increases almost exponentially. It can be determined that from the system know as "cat" that even if sufficient food and water is present that a cat will knock over, interact, and play with almost anything in its environment. The probability also increases with smaller size boxes. The flipping of a coin and the collapsing of an event is another. How can we flip a coin and determine the outcome without gravity present or a surface to stop the coin? How about the energy required to flip the coin in the first place? Where did that come from, and can we not use more energy to restart the event and uncollapse it back to a 1/2 1/2 probability? A donkey will walk to the closest pile of hay, the path of least resistance and effort. How are the donkeys and piles of hay distributed and why did you choose that distribution? There is a whole world some people are neglecting in their arguments. This stems from the misunderstanding and abuse of the zero spin state and over simplification of magnetism. If a wave or particle vanishes from a moving and spinning world, where did it go? Could it be that it is not spinning and has zero motion? Therefore, since we know entropy works quite well and the tendency for systems to degrade. The vanishing zero spin states are the preferred state and can be used as a point of reference. We are in one large electronics circuit and unless we can find "ground" or the lowest energy state, we can only make relative measurements.
Neutrinos are higher energy pairs of electrons and positrons. They have been brought together with more energy then they would release normally. Like popcorn under pressure, it should pop if one only looked at temperature, but does not due to pressure. Water boiling and the point at which it changes phase is another one, we must understand phase and the point that energy becomes matter. I generally talk about the low energy pairs of electrons and positrons as they are more related to a ground state, but since neutrinos are measurable by us they may prove more useful.
Progress is in understanding gravity and that it is not caused by mass, but by displacement. Progress is in understanding that we can only measure so much and that the world we measure is caused by another. Progress is in understanding that we cannot get something for nothing and the total energy in the system does not change.
I wish to pass along a warning from 2000 years ago. We should not ever try to leave the system or go past the edge of it. To go past or extend anything beyond the edge of the universe would require energy or work being performed. Since we would be using matter to extend past the edge we would also drag and extend the Grid with it and expand the universe. Since this requires energy, we are limited in how much we could extend the universe by. The big problem comes from affecting or changing the shape of it and when it eventually collapses, we do not want to mess up the cycle. There is an edge to the universe and it has a shape. The only problem I see is that what we see as the shape is not really the true shape of the universe. Looking at the frequency content one would arrive at one shape, but since time is different for us and the waves we measure versus the fundamental particles the shape is actually another. While it may appear to be a 12 sided soccer ball to us it is actually spherical or if one considered a negative universe in addition to ours a Klein bottle possibly. The negative universe would be collapsing right now as ours expands so it is hard to nail down a shape. "Dark flow" is possible due to the density change in the Grid at the edge of the universe.
Instead of looking for a way out we just need to build a house to last through the winter is all. It should be possible to enclose a small star for example and gather fuel to feed it. We would need to capture and use a large portion of the energy to last through the final expansion and to wait for another big bang. We would also need to be in the right place or else we could be processed as well. While I have talked about a "Big Rip in the past I forgot about the minimum size requirement for fusion to take place. There should be some matter left over at maximum expansion that is not converted back to energy. Just as not all energy will be converted to matter during a Big Bang.
Large Supernova can create black holes due to core being flash frozen or rapidly cooled by the loss of energy in fussing Iron. There is a certain minimum size required to get a frozen core to survive the change in the direction of energy flow. The core used to be the hottest part of the star and all of a sudden, it becomes the coldest. The cold core no longer wants to be in the middle of the hot star and should want to move outside of it, ripping the star apart shortly after. Dark matter and black holes are cold matter and suck energy to further process matter. Light and EM waves fall into them rather then being pulled by gravity one might say. Just as light and EM waves tend to fall away from a hot object like a star or Earth. Hot objects are power hills while cold objects are power wells or holes with the average temperature of space being the crossover point.
Electrons and positrons may not be the smallest or lowest energy state of them. We know of Muons and Taus as being higher energy states of an electron, so there is the possibility that there are lower energy states that cannot exist right now due to the amount of energy density present in the universe at this time. Meaning the universe may expand more then we think now.
All right time to get back to work now that I have put some thoughts to paper or electrons I should say.
