February Update and Science Video

As I am sure you noticed when you arrived at the site, I actually got some good work done on the website this month! Timothy Schutz, over at evergreenmediaproductions.com, created this cool header image (unfortunately I can’t figure out how to make it link to the home page anymore, due to certain things about how WordPress works, but I will be working on that), as well as a new logo that actually means something, and I have made some progress figuring out how to change the url. I am not done working on the website, but I have made a lot of progress, and I will try to get a real content post up this month. Until then, check out these two Smarter Every Day videos I found:

WARNING: The first video uses medical terminology to refer to Kangaroo reproductive organs

October/November Update and Science Video

I missed the October update, so I’ve got a bit of catching up to do.

I have gotten little work done on the website, for the same reason I missed the October update: school. It is likely that I will not get almost any work done on this website for the rest of the calendar year, but I will see what I can do. It is starting to look like I may just give up on the forums, and go back to the old, free WordPress, though with a new domain and some other new stuff, simply because the paid site loses so much of the simple WordPress compatibility, which is the entire reason I chose to use WordPress as my host.

 

 

Matter Follow-up

I recently got a really cool confirmation on my matter idea. A Korean family stayed at my house last week, and the dad was a theoretician. He teaches quantum physics at a university in South Korea, and was here on a research trip. I jumped at the chance to get an educated opinion on my ideas, and had him read my Ultramatter, Gravity Shield, and Matter ideas. He was ecstatic to find a student that actually cared about school, instead of just being in it for the grade and degree, and he gave me his email address so we could keep in touch and he could give his input on my other ideas as he reads them, but the most exciting part was his response to my matter idea. As soon as he read the main concept about matter being a vibration, he said, “How did you know…?”

Apparently, one of the main concepts of quantum physics is the idea that matter, in its most basic form, is a vibration. On the one hand it’s slightly disappointing that I did not think of it first, but on the other hand, this means I figured out quantum physics (or at least part of it), which, needless to say, is really encouraging. One of my ideas was actually correct, at least to an extent! The Korean dad pointed me to the Grand Unity Theory, which is one of various Unified Field Theories, which attempt to explain all aspects of the universe except for gravity in terms of one field. I tried to read up about it, but it required too much back knowledge and would have taken way too long to research about it, but apparently it theorizes that matter in its most basic form is a vibration. My theory would be a Theory of Everything, because it includes gravity in the things it explains in terms of one field, and Scientists are ultimately hoping to come up with a Theory of Everything, but so far the only theories that are deemed plausible have been Unified Field Theories.

Titles

Here are the titles I have come up with so far. Any one of them could probably be vastly improved along the same lines, but these are the main ideas, and the examples give you an idea of what I’m looking for. I’d prefer a reference to God being the reason for science, but I couldn’t find a quote that would work, and I couldn’t remember the ones I’ve seen in the past. Which would you like to see as my new title? Do you have suggestions of your own? I’ve added a poll at the end of this post whose results will weigh rather heavily in my decision.

The Friend of Truth

“Plato is my friend, Aristotle is my friend, but my greatest friend is truth.” –Newton

Playing on the beach of the ocean of truth

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me” –Newton

The image of Truth

“Science is but an image of the truth” –Francis Bacon

Mirror of Truth

“There are two ways of spreading light—to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it” –Francis Bacon
