ORDER - FROM CHAOS THEORY MANDELBROT SET |

28 JUNE 2013. HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS – “Dynamic”
comes from the Greek for power and energy and is now understood as being energy
in motion – energy at work. “Dynamic” is attached to dozens of concepts
including many scientific disciplines, such as Quantum electrodynamics, a description of how matter and light interact; a
definition which also cites “quantum”, possibly the most overused, abused and
misunderstood word in the Sci-Fi dictionary.

**“Constants”**– particularly universal constants, in science refer to the most reliable factors underlying or governing the 4 fundamental forces and their interactions. Mathematicians brew their magic potions based on the main constants and the fine-constants that seem to magically exist in Nature’s or God’s Universe and to equally magically interrelate and interact to provide “The Goldilocks Conditions” which are precisely just right to create the universe and living conditions for the very fragile human race. Constants are claimed to be just that – constant, unchanging, reliable, unquestionable and, for lazy thinkers, God Given.

But, they are not. Constants are neither
constant nor mystically ordained. All scientific and mathematical constants are
measurements made by humans.

E.G. Constants:

Pi, the endless number

**π**results from dividing the circumference (outline) of a circle by its diameter (centre edge to edge line) which is 22/7 =3.142… receding endlessly as far as anyone or our computers can calculate. Magically inspired? No. Ancient Greek scientists drew hundreds of circles, drew lines through their centres and measured. Eventually they agreed that the ratio between the lines in all circles is 22 divided by 7 – and unfathomably ascribed the 16^{th}letter of their alphabet “P”, written**π**which also means the number 80.
Other ancient Greeks measured thousands of
triangles and concluded the 3 angles always add to 180

^{o}– except that they don’t; other than on flat surfaces which don’t exist on curved planets.
The universal gravitational constant was
famously discovered by the genius Isaac Newton (1642-1727) who arrived at it by
measurement and calculation – the force of gravity is now counted in “Newtons ” which is the
weight of a small apple.

Max Planck (1858-1947) – who we can blame for
the word “quantum” and who from measuring heat from lumps of iron (black body
radiation) discovered or defined the smallest possible object in the universe, 1.61619926 × 10

^{-35}metres (0.0 with 34 zeros before the 16161 etc) across, when measuring heat flying off hot irons. He realized the heat came in steps or chunks, not in a smooth gradient as expected, and said the steps were quantities or “quanta” which became quantum – and then the smallest quantum became the energy of a single photon.
The fantastically accurate atomic clocks, used
to coordinate telecoms satellites and to demonstrate Einstein’s General
Relativity postulate that time mysteriously slows on accelerating objects and
in heavier gravitational fields (acceleration = gravity), evolved from ancient
timekeepers, which in turn were matched to observations of the Earth orbiting
the Sun in 366 days, amended to 360 degrees /divisions of a circle and The
Globe for arithmetical convenience. Most globes have 36 lines of Longitude,
360/10. Clocks and maps both use units of minutes and seconds – atomic clocks
use nano-seconds and smaller units, all evolved from counting the days and
hours. A “second” is currently agreed to be 9,192,631,770 of atomic transitions in caesium – which is not a universal constant, as time is proved
to be relative – but it is a mathematical constant – man made as are all
constants.

FLAT, OPEN, CLOSED, EXANDING,
SHRINKING, SADDLE-SHAPED, INFINITE UNIVERSES – Science debates all the possible
beginnings, ends, shapes, sizes and possibly infinite numbers of universes.
Applying the Universal Constants to their sums, most scientists gloomily
believe, with religious fervour, in the ultimate death of the universe, citing
the 2

^{nd}Law of Thermodynamics (based on Victorian steam engines) as inevitably leading to all things and all energy spreading out into a featureless cold soup of evenly spaced zero temperature (-273C) inert particles.*“All is vanity. All is futile. It is all for nought”.*They are wrong. 13.7 billion years of experience ought to tell them that dynamic energy and electromagnetic gravitational particles don’t follow their mathematical constructs; particularly calculations based on 80% to 90% unknown “missing” matter at both the sub-atomic and the galactic levels.
As Einstein demonstrated in his
now proven Relativity theories, and as Lovelock theorises about Gaia’s feedback
mechanisms here on Earth, it seems to me that all factors – at the micro and
macro ends of the scale – are related. All energies and objects are relative
and as the relationships change, so do the Universal Constants. Press one
Universal Constant down hard – and another one rises. There is, I think, only
one single universe which contains all phenomena from house bricks to Higgs to
heaven and hell – and all things ephemeral. The Universal Constants shift as
the universe evolves. It evolves through feedback from all emergent phenomena,
all interactions and all data signals. Just as DNA has recently been discovered
to be incredibly data-dense, far more so, I believe, are all the radio, electro-magnetic
signals (Light) by which we know the universe. From the tiniest photons to the
greatest supernovas to our neighbour’s brain, we would have no knowledge of
them unless they electro-magnetically broadcast their presence. In that sense,
everything has life, everything is evolving and, I aver, everything has
meaning.

Whatever the universe does –
expands, shrinks, turns somersaults, the Universal Constants alter, interact
and manifest in the next generation universe. Energy, by its nature, does not
do nothing. The fundamental “pure” energy of the universe is restless, probably
sentient and has proved, for 13.7 billion years to be highly creative. To
scotch the depressed heat-death prediction, science needs to ask itself about
the unacknowledged force or forces that create life. Where does the organising
Lifeforce, which creates organisms such as the human brain – and scientists –
fit with the recognised four fundamental forces – Gravity, Electro-Magnetic,
Weak Nuclear and Strong Nuclear forces?

What part do we humans play in the
evolution of our one and only universe, where as far as we know, we produce the
most complex thing in the universe, the human brain – which is the organisation
of 10 billion brain cells, 10 trillion
brain connections and 100 trillion body cells – which all purposefully
functions? While our weak and feeble
bodies only last for 70 years or so, I conjecture that from conception to
disintegration we broadcast our presence – otherwise how could we be seen by
others – by emitting light waves /radio broadcasts that like all radio waves
propagate across the whole universe – and, logically, in-form and re-form the
universal energy field/s. Our data broadcasts are almost eternal – like all
such signals. We will not be eradicated by faulty extrapolation of the 2

^{nd}Law of Thermodynamics. It is a dynamic universe.
