    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    Scientists agree that anyone who falls into a black hole is time-dilated until they see the end of time just as they get to the event-horizon. There is no location which is adjacent to a black hole. If you were close to a black hole, you would be in our future. But since you are not in our future, that location doesn't exist yet. Black holes exist only in the future yet we feel their effects in the present as gravity waves. Therefore gravity is moving backward in time. There's no way around it. Future affects past and past affects future.

    Please show physics researchers the above paragraph and ask them to come up with a possibility where it could be wrong. There is none. They just haven't wrapped their minds around a timeless universe so they can't see the obvious.

    That is a fact based on what scientists already agree on. Also, I propose the following theories which are not so certain...

    Wavefunction collapse (multiverse branches combining into 1 reality) is gravity in infinite dimensions, and if you could get a black hole to simultaneously rotate in 2 different directions (averaging its normal angular momentum) then that would multiverse branch the galaxy around it which would wavefunction collapse if other galaxies got too close and their gravity waves interfered with our superposition, like a quantum double slit experiment on a galaxy scale.

    Time is entropy (as thermodynamics says increases with time) and superposition.

    Gravity is negative entropy (patterns falling together) and wavefunction collapse.

    Gravity is Antitime. Gravity = -Time.

    When time and antitime combine (at the end of time, event horizon, thermodynamic heat death), you get a big bang which is both our past and future, closing the loop and allowing a more general form of string-theory (not about specific dimensions, but in infinite dimensions) to extend around time loops the same way it does with loops in space.

    Since I define time as whatever direction you tend to move through this multiverse of infinite possibilities, it makes perfect sense why regardless of how fast you're already moving, the remaining speed to get to the speed of light looks like its the full distance from zero to light speed from your point of view, why you get length contraction and time dilation. By moving a certain direction and speed, you're redefining time with yourself at the center.

    Look for gravity in the reverse direction of someone you observe moving near the speed of light and therefore you see them length contracted (because they see you for less time from their point of view, less length of them passes you from your point of view). Gravity is what happens if they go faster than light and get length contracted to be shorter than zero, but no amount of time sums to antitime so if you want to go faster than light you need to try a different strategy: Go slower than stopped, colder than absolute-zero, or exist less than nonexistence ( That's what I meant by  ). A black hole's size is negative.

    Think about relativity. If from our point of view X and Y are moving in opposite directions each near the speed of light, then X and Y see eachother moving away near the speed of light. Newton would expect them to see eachother moving away from eachother almost 2 times the speed of light, but its less, an attracting force in the direction opposite of time. Consider the opposite, moving toward eachother. They see eachother moving slower than Newton would expect, a repelling force in the direction of time. Time pushes things apart. Antitime pulls them together. In infinite dimensions and as many multiverse branches do this at once relative to eachother, it generates gravity in the opposite direction of time, and time is whatever direction you happen to be moving (your light-cone) through infinite possibilities.

    The following fact of math should help: Nonexistence is isomorphic to the set of all self-consistent possibilities.

    Neither existence or nonexistence follows from no statement at all, but if we take nonexistence and all self-consistent possibilities to be equal then the universe being here for no reason at all makes perfect sense because it is simultaneously everything and nothing and those 2 words mean exactly the same thing so there is no question to ask about is it here or not. When you understand that, you will know why there must be exactly the same amount of time and antitime regardless of how you divide the universe, in any inertial frame (position and direction, a light-cone), and why the  Global Consciousness Project's quantum "random" number generators found very small statistical patterns at the time of major world events. The "random" numbers became less random and nobody knows why. Its because as important events happen that change our path through possible futures, the relativity effect applies in infinite dimensions and applies gravity to the "random" numbers.

    If you want to move faster than light, the answer is in why those "random" numbers become less random.

    Just a thought-experiment to lead you to what you need... If you could somehow superposition a ship and onboard is some quantum random number generators, and each of those superpositioned multiverse branches travels a different direction, the relativity effects (Newton thinks they see eachother moving away faster than Einstein thinks) would pigeonhole-proof the "random" numbers observed for exactly the same reason  Bose Einstein Condensate works, which is that the total possible unique states of the system is less than the number of states going in so they are forced to overlap. Design a warp drive so its speed is forced to overlap its speed, and as high as you can stack the Bose Einstein Condensate, in this analogy, you can multiply the speed of light.

    One thing scares me about this... As the Human species continues advancing technology and converging toward less and less probable futures (how likely is it a computer would form from random atoms, or be mass produced and expand exponentially?), our paths through the multiverse are converging from a larger number of possible wavefunctions to a smaller number of possible wavefunctions, therefore I see it as a fact that we will experience something like the Bose Einstein Condensate but more generally applying to our whole reality repeatedly overlapping itself. What does Bose Einstein Condensate do when it becomes slightly unbalanced? Answer that question, multiply by an astronomically large number (as large as our current level of advancement is improbable in a wavefunction context), and that is almost all our possible futures. If such a small imbalance were to happen, our increasingly Bose-Einstein-Condensate-like extremely improbable reality could spread out into unitary equilibrium (no overlapping wavefunctions, 1 to 1) which would mean vaporizing the galaxy into quantum chaos as a result of the force of our overlapping possible futures repeatedly converging. It makes me curious about the theory of timewave zero, even though I haven't looked into the specific data points of that theory, what I've derived here proves that we should expect to see the convergence of timewaves in general, and as explained in the first paragraph it is clear that future affects past and past affects future as we can see in black holes being at the end of time yet still affecting us in the present with gravity waves. But hopefully if we are smart enough to create such a potential problem we are also smart enough to solve it. I'm still betting on the warp drive and the general ability to statistically control space and time.

    But not like 1 negative and 1 positive.... all splits on a bell curve, which should match to what is called a "particle and antiparticle" because both of those are subject to heisenberg uncertainty which really means they were split on a bell curve instead of +1 and -1.

    In the double slit experiment, when its not observed, wave interference occurs with 1 particle with itself. The particle hits on the back wall where the 2 waves are in phase, and does not hit when they are out of phase. This is the gradual version of the EQUAL function, which is the opposite of the XOR function.

    In the double slit experiment, when it is observed, it still goes both paths (and many variations of those on bell curves), and wave interference still happens. How can I say that when no wave interference is observed? Its very simple. The 2 paths do not end in the same place if you observe which path it took. One is a future "left slit, detector on right not detected", and the other future is "right slit, detector on the right detected". These 2 do not converge on the same state of the universe, which is a bell curve between "left slit, detector on the right detected" and "right slit, detector on the right detected", or the opposite of that when not detected.

    The same thing is happening in the double slit experiment if its observed or not. What changes is we twist our possible futures to not overlap eachother anymore, so we are unable to see the wave interference even though it still happens. It is not wave interference between the 2 paths of the photon. It is wave interference between the total state of the universe and whatever paths it takes. Putting a detector at one slit is the same as putting a mirror there to reflect it away from the back wall and toward a back wall in a parallel reality. It twists that possible future to one that does not align with the left slit, so the wave interference is not observed even though its somewhere in the possible states of the universe.

    Every moment of reality (including its light cones) is a possible state of the universe. When we go through one slit or the other, and hit on a place where the 2 waves are out of phase, that is never observed because our reality is cancelled out by an opposite reality (the one that is out of phase). Reality ends. But since we are everywhere and everything all at once (without knowledge of this usually), we continue from all other points in the universe as if nothing had happened, wondering why we don't observe the photon hitting in the dark parts of the back wall of the double slit experiment. It hits there, and its antireality hits there too, but our past shows that never happens because our past is defined by the paths where reality doesn't get cancelled out.

    I have simultaneously solved wave/particle duality and consciousness.

    Can anyone who knows physics give me any evidence that this theory is not true?

    What is the universe? Why is it here? How can we use it? Those questions have been debated for all of recorded history, but I've never heard of anyone who tried to answer all 3 questions with the same answer. I will list some observations, some theories which try to explain them, and a way to use the theory to design a faster than light engine (a warp drive) using cheap technology like lasers and parts of LCD (liquid crystal display) screens.

    The picture above is E8 (described below), what they think physics looks like at the deepest level they know about. It looks a lot like a sphere, or did you think the laws-of-physics were flat? What creates spheres? Gravity.

    DEFINITION: Laws-of-physics is the statistical behavior of a subset of the universe, usually the subset closest to Earth.

    OBSERVATION: The only known laws-of-physics is very accurately approximated by small math equations.

    OBSERVATION: The only known laws-of-physics has arbitrary-appearing (not like pi or e or integers) constants in its equations.

    OBSERVATION: The only known laws-of-physics has never been observed changing (same equations), or only a small amount.

    OBSERVATION: When in superposition, 1 particle/wave can be in thousands of places at once without being between those places, and when 1 of those thousands of places is touched, 1 gets more dense and the others get less dense.

    OBSERVATION: Quantum wavefunctions can be split by a half-mirror and reassembled by the same process in reverse at a different half-mirror. Its branches can cancel each other out or strengthen each other, depending on the angles and number of bounces etc.

    OBSERVATION: More often than would happen randomly or through normal communication or observing the environment etc, there are small statistical dependencies between the brains of people and/or quantum physics devices. See the "main results" list at  for the results of those experiments. Also you can watch a mind over matter video I did in 2002 at  ("Psi wheel in a clear closed box 2" at youtube), or many similar videos. Lots of people have done strange mental things.

    OBSERVATION: The E8 math structure very accurately approximates the only known laws-of-physics. It is many rotations of a 57-dimensional shape in 248-dimensional space, where each dimension represents a quantum particle/wave type. There are levels of organization built on top of levels between 248 particle types (including some not observed) and the small number of types at the top of the Standard Model.

    THEORY: The Copenhagen theory of quantum physics is an approximation of the most infinite version of Manyworlds theory, similar to how Newton's equations are an approximation of Einstein's equations.

    THEORY (by Max Tegmark): "All structures that exist mathematically exist also physically."

    LOGIC: If Tegmark is right then: For any subset of the universe, there are an infinite number of unique ways to simulate that subset and recursively simulations of simulations to infinite depth, all averaging to nothing because of the symmetry of math. Since the universe is nothing on average, it doesn't really exist and does not need to be created. Parts of it exist alone, but together they do not.

    DEFINITION: Pattern is any subset of math. A wavefunction or any subset of it is a pattern. A statistical similarity between 2 patterns or subsets of them is a pattern.

    THEORY "Gravity For Patterns": The universe is the set of all possible wavefunctions of patterns instead of simply wavefunctions of particles/waves, and patterns attract patterns more when they are more similar.

    LOGIC: If Gravity For Patterns is right then: Collapsing a wavefunction is the superpositioned parts falling toward each other, pulled by the mostly-collapsed parts (the parts of reality they agree on) being similar patterns. The E8 shape is 1 of many possible shapes, and (possibly, but not necessarily practical) new shapes can be rotated in while E8 is gradually rotated out, to locally change the laws-of-physics to any arbitrary pattern you can amplify through chaos-theory.

    THEORY: The "statistical dependencies between the brains of people and/or quantum physics devices" are caused by such a rotation between E8 and whatever pattern fits the combination of brainwaves/devices which become statistically dependent, and that is probable to happen because infinite recursions of "Gravity For Patterns" (patterns about patterns attracting) will pattern-match any 2 patterns in 2 brains and ***exponentially*** increase the chance such patterns will connect through the multiverse. Its exponential because the recursion of patterns always finds an effective path between the 2 patterns. It finds an infinite number of other things, but the gravity part gradually changes that, and a small change goes exponential because of the recursion.

    THEORY: A faster than light engine (a warp drive) can be created using a distributed (not hierarchy) network of programmable crystals (a more advanced kind of LCD screen - Liquid Crystal Display) which are controlled by programmable lasers which are controlled in realtime by artificial intelligence which is given the task of controlling the crystals formed as early as possible (the precognitive effect in Humans, in a machine). The purpose of these cheap grids of programmable crystals is to grow crystals in multiverse directions which eventually grow far enough to touch each other in this distributed network. That system would be the way to access the "patterns" described in the theory above, to (a small amount) rotate out laws-of-physics (probably an E8 shape) and rotate in a warp field. This is all done by resonance of the patterns (Like Tesla's "earthquake machine"), not by brute-force pushing in the same direction until it works (That would take infinite energy, as relativity equations say). The way it works depends on large symmetric patterns, like a global telepathy network or the same built with a network of machines (using LCD crystals the same way as the analog parts of brains access Gravity For Patterns). Either way, it needs continuous use of a lot of intelligence, which can be done through a network Human minds and computers connected through psychology software and the internet, or it could be done using pure artificial intelligence if we knew more about how intelligence works. The intelligence is used to control the growth of the crystals in multiverse directions by controlling the brightness of the lasers. To extend the warp field around large areas like a planet or solar system (theoretically if the curved spacetime isn't vibrating too much from the large mass), put the crystals and computers around it in a sphere shape in space, and connect them with lasers pointing at each other which point at the LCD crystals of each other, so the waves of spacetime intersecting the lasers will be measured in the fractal patterns in the LCD crystals caused by the distorted laser light hitting it. That is how the machines would communicate with each other to know how to adjust their crystals to adjust to the way spacetime is vibrating. If done accurately enough, it should work for a starship, maybe for moving planets and stars, but probably not anything as big as a black-hole because its spacetime vibrations would be too big. First, we should try to build a machine that can push small things around using Gravity For Patterns. Then work up to the starships.

    Gravity For Patterns is Ben F Rayfield's theory of everything, including how the laws-of-physics form and how to locally change them using small amounts of energy and large amounts of intelligence.
