Does reductionism End? Quantum Holonomy theory says YES

Cutting to the chase, an alternate theory called QHT claims to explain everything.  I like the idea of a "simpler" theory, although not really simple at all, that eliminates the concept of an infinite density singularity.  Generally speaking, when your mathematical model produces one or more infinities, something has gone wrong with your theory.  In the past, I heard that infinite density would produce infinite gravity, which seems to make no sense.  I have also heard that Black Holes never stop collapsing; they are in an eternal free fall.

Decades ago I saw where some very fringe scientists claimed that Black Holes don't exist.   They claimed that what we observe are super-massive neutron stars.  Although a simpler theory, it does not fit our current understanding of physics.  Some force would be needed to keep the neutron stars from collapsing further.  I also don't think that this fits the observations.

What's Up with Those Bird Beak Plague Masks?

I learned from this:

The word "quarantine" comes from the Italian word "quarenta" meaning forty because they would isolate bubonic plague victims for forty days.

I was well aware of the Miasma theory of disease, which was the dominant theory of disease for 1200 years up to 1850 and beyond when the germ theory disease was just starting and didn't become fully accepted until around 1890.

Homogenous Vs. Homogeneous: What's The Difference?

Apparently, these are two different words, but I would get confused.


  1. 1.
    old-fashioned term for homologous.


  1. of the same kind; alike.

Senate Priority on all committees

Schumer made it clear he's prioritized climate change for Democrats' turn at power for the next two years.

"I've already instructed the incoming Democratic chairs of all relevant committees to begin holding hearings on the climate crisis in preparation for enacting President Biden's 'Build Back Better' agenda," Schumer said of Biden's green jobs plan.

Amazing hydrogen paste

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Larry Trout 

In Powerpaste form, it's completely stable at temperatures up to 250 °C (482 °F). It carries 10 times the energy of a similar weight in lithium batteries, and substantially more than a 700-bar H2 tank of the same weight. The researchers say vehicles running on a Powerpaste powertrain can expect a range "comparable to – or even greater than – gasoline."

When it comes time to release the energy, a plunger mechanism extrudes the paste into a chamber where it reacts with water to release hydrogen at a dynamically controlled rate, which then feeds a fuel cell to create electrical power with which to run an EV powertrain or other device. Part of the paste's impressive energy density comes from the fact that half of the hydrogen released comes from the water it reacts with.

I wonder about the cost.

Are Pilot Waves the True Nature of Reality? & 2 Wild theories of quantum mechanics

The standard model of physics is excellent, but incomplete because Quantum Physics and Relativity don't agree.

Quantum Physics is easier to understand if we think of subatomic particles as waves.   Because of their wavy nature, it is hard to pinpoint their exact location, and the particles have some randomness to them.  

Quantum Field Theory (QFT) says that subatomic particles are actually waves in invisible fields that exist everywhere.  This is similar to photons being waves in the electromagnetic field.

The pilot wave theory is probably more complicated than it needs to be.

P.S.  I get slightly annoyed when people say that there is no gravity in space.  There is gravity everywhere.  Objects in a stable orbit do not experience gravity because they are continuously falling toward the Earth, but their high velocity is enough to keep them at the same level.

The further away you get from massive objects then the less gravity you will experience, but gravity permeates the entire universe.
