Theoretical Physics, Life, and Intelligence

Essays

 

Theoretical physics is a mechanical interpretation of the nature of the universe. It is not the foundational science it is often portrayed as. It is not about the foundation of life and intelligence. It relies solely upon empirical evidence in the form of patterns of changes of velocities of objects. Those patterns consist always and only of mechanical effects. We cannot learn what cause is from that evidence only what cause does. Cause remains physics' most pervasive unknown. There are, though, pseudo-theoretical unknowns that result from insufficient understanding of empirical evidence and that which it is communicating to us. Pseudo-unknowns are those properties who's natures go unanswered because physicists don't know how to proceed forward or have unknowingly prepared themselves to miss the empirically revealed answers, due to accepting earlier incorrect guesses that have become accepted parts of physics equations. The first such incorrect guess that was made a part of physics equations was the decision to declare mass to be an artificially indefinable property. The enclosed work consists of reports on the damage that this type of practice results in. In the case of physics' indefinable mass, the damage done was to introduce fundamental disunity into f=ma. This work puts forward a remedy for removing theorists' misleading intrusions into physics equations, allowing the equations to self-reveal empirically supported truths. The first such truth is that empirical evidence does give us guidance on how to define mass. Mass could have been and should have been a defined property. Temperature is another historically recognized artificially indefinable property. Temperature could have been and should have been a defined property. It is imperative that anyone doing physics knows the classic, precise, physics' definition of defined. The historical physics' definition of a defined property is: A defined propery is one that is defined in terms of pre-existing properties. Properties are represented in physics equations only by their units. A defined unit is one that is defined in terms of pre-existing units. In the equation f=ma both force and mass could have been and should have been defined properties. Their units of newton's and kilograms could have been and should have been defined units. The empirical evidence, from which their existence is inferred, provides their pre-existing properties and their pre-existing units by which definitions may be correctly made. The enclosed work shows how to make this correction and others. The results are profoundly different from current theoretical physics. They are empirically directed results.
