Hey Baby, Your Space or Mine? ;)
When i was at Michigan State, i almost did date a conventional physicist. But in addition to her busy personal life, she had conceptual reasons for avoiding me. She adamantly proclaimed helium is a quantum superfluid and cannot be modeled in any deterministic way*. At that time, i had not discovered Iam space so she could not reject me on that behalf. But if i had, surely she would have added that to reasons for her rejection. The component of Iam space called impedance is the critical factor conventional physicists reject my discovery. *Coherent processes is the deterministic way of modeling superfluidity.
There are several different forms/usages of the term. There is electrical impedance, media impedance,.. and even gravitational impedance. But what i'm mostly referring to is the impedance of free space (although i'm including 'wave impedace'). Because of the historical rejection of the luminiferous aether, conventional physicists refuse to accommodate any theory which includes any aspect resembling it. Wave impedance is just too much like the luminiferous aether for conventional physicists to stomach.
But i urge convention to reconsider for the aspect of temporal curvature. It is the proposed summary characteristic of reality which can explain: mass, gravitation, strong force, time dilation (both gravitational and relativistic), and other relativistic effects. Unfortunately for Iam space, i have associated it with wave impedance. Conceptually, it was Occam's Razor which impelled me to simplify Iam space thusly. So it was not my preference which dictated that action; it was expediency, elegance, and simplicity.
To my meager understanding of the subject, Iam space is the minimal construct which will 'do the job' of physics unification. Physicists have tried for years, both conventional and fringe, to perform that action. It refers to the attempt to unify the 'four forces of nature': electromagnetic, strong nuclear, weak nuclear, and gravitation. But the basic stumbling block of convention has been the assumption forces work via virtual exchange of bosons - attempting to integrate particle physics with gravitation. If they had worked it 'the other way around': attempting to develop/integrate particle physics from a 'general relativity' standpoint, they might have had more luck.
Luck has nothing to do with Iam space - i claim divine inspiration.. i know, that in and of itself is reason for rejection.. But isn't divine inspiration better than say: "I invented Micheal space! Aren't I wonderful!" ;) That way is saturated in ego and i refuse to approach ANYthing in that manner.. Again, Iam space is a divinely inspired model of spacetime curtailed by Occam's Razor.
In order to lighten the discussion somewhat, i'll copy-paste a satire of it here:
Boxing Match: VX (virtual exchange) vs TC (temporal curvature)
Courtesy of David Chalmers, http://consc.net/chalmers/ , please enjoy the following Monty Python skit about international philosophers:
i must apologize i cannot produce the following skit in that style; i don't have a team of comedians working for me.. :( Referee = R )
R: WELCOME to the ring! VX, virtual exchange! and TC, temporal curvature!
[crowd goes wild]
R: VX represents convention, is the reigning world champion,
has never been beaten in the history of physics!
[crowd goes wild]
R: in the other corner, please put your hands together for the upstart and newcomer,
[crowd boos and hisses]
[R waits for crowd to calm]
R: come forward gentlemen! [the two comply]
R: put your gloves together as a symbol of good faith, let the best man win! [the bell dings]
[VX and TC eye each other - gauging each other warily..]
R: they seem to be examining each other..
[crowd boos and hisses]
R: have some patience good people..
[crowd boos and hisses more loudly]
[under pressure from the crowd, the two boxers start to circle each other - fists ready..]
[the two dance and skip around like positronium]
R: they appear to be mimicking positronium..
[crowd becomes ugly - frothing at the mouth like rabid dogs..]
[under pressure from the crowd, the two begin feigning punches.. toy models of punches..]
R: I don't know what they're doing! but it looks virtually exciting!
[crowd doesn't believe and starts throwing food at the two..]
[under pressure, VX starts throwing real punches at TC]
R: finally! the fight begins!
[crowd screams in insane delight]
[TC blocks deterministically but VX's punches seem to move faster than light..]
R: look at those punches! you can barely see his fists move!
[crowd now frothing in rabid delight]
[VX repeatedly beats TC's body and face with lightning fast punches..]
R: look at those attacks! even from behind!
[crowd swoons in ecstasy]
R: oh! an unusual development!
[TC lowers his guard and slowly sits down in a lotus position..]
R: what is TC doing! the idiot! is he giving up???
[crowd resumes throwing food]
[impervious to crowd, referee, and opponent, TC meditates and Ohms..]
[the Ohms resonate throughout the auditorium silencing everyone but VX]
VX: get up and fight! coward! [VX screams at TC]
[VX resumes his punching at incredible double-lightning speed..]
[his fists are a blur - nothing can be seen but VX's fists hitting his opponent..]
R: what's happening! a new development???
[crowd gasps in amazement..]
R: some kind of temporal 'force field' is coming from TC! look everyone!
[VX is relentless - he increases his punch frequency..]
[now nothing can be heard or seen but a vibrating hum of VX's fists..]
[strangely, immediately surrounding TC is a glow of blue light, within that glow,
VX's fists slow markedly.. VX cannot make contact with TC anymore..]
[VX disappears in a puff of smoke, crowd gasps in astonishment]
R: well it looks like TC is the winner by default! VX has vanished!
[mixed reaction from crowd]
R: don't worry folks! [starts singing] Ti-i-i-ime is on my side! yes it is!..
