Following on from the previous post, “WHAT IS A
PARTICLE?” particle physicists (at least some of them) know that there are serious
problems with the Standard Model. But, based on their tacit assumption that
reality is nothing more than matter and energy interacting in space-time, it is
all they have. It’s the ‘if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a
nail’ syndrome. With due respect, what they don’t seem to realize is that their
most basic assumptions are wrong. Assuming
that reality is made up of particles, they attack the problem of determining the
nature of reality like yesteryear’s carpenter, with two ineffective tools: a
300-year-old saw and a brute-force hammer. The 300-year-old saw is the calculus
of Newton and Leibniz, and the brute-force hammer is the Large Hadron Collider
(LHC). There are numerous clues from the empirical evidence of quantum and
relativistic experiments that there is more to reality than matter and energy
interacting in space-time, but mainstream science does not have a good history
of reacting favorably to being told that they are wrong.

String theory arose from recognizing that assuming reality
is composed of particles stuck together to form the structures of the physical
universe led to some unresolvable problems, - like particles that weren’t
particles. So what if electrons, protons, neutrons, etc., are vibrating
strings? This made possible an acceptable conceptual relationship between
particles and waves, and led to a number of elegant and interesting
multi-dimensional theories involving physical structures consisting of
vibrating strings and ‘branes’(short for membranes). But no one could explain
where the strings and branes might come from, and the problem with string theories
is not that that they are necessarily incorrect, they are internally
mathematically correct, but that they contain mathematical concepts that do not
exist in reality. Because of this, they cannot be verified empirically and they
lead to some of the same problems that we find in the standard model of particle
theory.

To understand how string theories contain mathematical
concepts that do not exist in reality, we must go back to Euclid’s axioms. Euclid’s
axioms are based on the idealized concepts of mathematical singularities
(dimensionless points), one-dimensional lines, and two dimensional planes. These
mathematical objects do not exist in a quantized reality. The dimensionless
point must be replaced by the minimum quantum volume (the TRUE quantum equivalence unit), and the axioms and fundamental
operations of mathematics revised accordingly. When this is done, the calculus
of Newton is replaced by the logically prior Calculus of Distinctions, the comprehensive
mathematical system of TDVP.

The ‘Standard Model’ is incomplete, as models always
are, per Gӧdel’s incompleteness Theorems. But a major problem with the Standard
Model as I see it, is that it has incorporated parts of the discoveries of
Einstein and Planck, but has ignored or rejected the most important parts of their
insights. Planck said: “There is no matter as such. All matter originates and
exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the
existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all
matter.” And Einstein said: “Space time is not necessarily something to which
one can ascribe a separate existence. Physical objects are not in space, but
these objects are spatially extended. In this way, the concept of empty space
loses its meaning.” And “I want to know how God created this world. I am not
interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element.
I want to know his thoughts. The rest are details.” From many things they said,
it is clear that both Planck and Einstein saw the universe, as a manifestation
of God’s thoughts. The Standard Model ignores this, but this is exactly the
position of TDVP:

**Infinite Consciousness is the source and substance of reality.**

Planck said: “There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”
