  1. A field is something, even a "flat" field has propertie(s), granted the field must be affected for evidence of those properties. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
  2. Before we are born a myriad of variables are manipulating the basic design presented by DNA, indeed even the DNA of the gametes is undergoing some modification prior to conception.
  3. What constitutes a field?
  4. Quantum physics attempts to describe physics at the smallest level... Ultimately aren't we seeking the point at which there is something from nothing, the edge of existence?
  5. Inevitably, some cultures will clash, often this is polarised by things such as religion, ethics, race... The best we can do is to allow freedom of belief and speech, however we have laws and if your beliefs cause you to cross the line into unlawful acts... You will be imprisoned!
  6. All very interesting! Y'all a incredible! While investigating my proto-particle (which I believe now is a graviton) I realized there was no identifiable limit to shells or number in shells of closely interacting gravitons, so I focused on just a pair... It appears to me that a pair of interacting gravitons is indeed a photon! As such it should provide a basis for some math... More on this when I have more time and math. Thx again everyone!
  7. I have been working on modeling my "proto-particle" some of you are familiar with it... as it turns out my proto-particle is actually a graviton, so I have been doing some reading on that. It is encouraging to see the same problems with math that I have encountered (recently I believe I found a basis for math describing the graviton, more on that later). Can someone explain to me why a graviton must be a spin 2 entity?
  8. I understand, however a gravitational system of perturbations interacting might produce what we perceive as a particle with mass, that is the mass I am seeking. Cause v effect is a very long running question, chicken or the egg? It would seem that a mass could not exist without spin, however can spin exist without mass? Perhaps even this has roots? Could it be that mass and spin are the result of a system in which the two preserve one another? This is off topic however! I am simply looking for the smallest possible mass. This is a matter of opinion obviously, I guess what I am truly looking for is inspiration! I usually find that there is plenty of that here, on this forum! If we ignore time... The problem becomes simpler I believe. We then have a single frame of reference. Tensors can be expressed without time as part of the equation. Of course that is not suitable in all cases, but it is sufficient for my problem, what is the smallest possible "rest" mass? It is my feeling that any entity with more than a single property, has underlying structure.
  9. Hmm, mass is defined as the resistance to a change in momentum. Is mass really any different than a gravitational perturbation?
  10. You are correct, and your math is correct. I was a bit loose with terminology... Point is no matter what value of x > 0 you choose, you will get a real number as a result for x to infinity and the result for x to zero will be infinity. X is distance, y is mass density / gravitational influence. (Yes this is my particle that is a gravitational well.) The ratio is (sum of y for x to infinity : sum of y for x to zero) Space, the formula -1/x^2 provides the mass density along a single line. Cubing then would provide overall mass for the space outside of x (Which would be infinite, if the universe is infinite, a real number if it is not) : overall mass of the space inside of x. The end result of this is that such an entity would reduce to a single point with infinite mass density... Imaginary mass. Of course such a particle could only exist as a primordial and would have to belong to a system that preserved it. That system would have a quanta of true mass, hence I am trying to determine what that mass would be, then x becomes a real value I can work with. Thank you for your patience, I know this is out there stuff (please no wisecracks!).
  11. The math! If you pick a point on x say x=1 for example and sum the values of y to x=infinity the total will approach 2. If you sum the values of y to x=0 the total will approach infinity. Regardless the x you start at, the sum of the y values will approach a finite value and infinity. The ratio of mass density indicates that the mass density beyond x=0 approaches 0 This gives you a factor to work with when you consider area and volume, both will produce infinity, however they are different infinities! Imaginary mass!
  12. Yes, the explanation Strange gave cleared it up for me... Can you define smidge in scientific units? Lol
  13. So say we have a photon of 300ghz, it can only have the energy provided via Planck, correct? If so the OK, I get it. BTW did you see my correction from "mass" to "mass density"? It is important if I am to provide the math for Imaginary mass.
