Our Energy Future

I believe that small scale fusion will be the long term energy solution and it may not be too far away.  Several of the "cold fusion" experiments have the basic setup.  They just need to keep the physical structure of their equipment aligned with the universe.

Fission power is much to expensive when one includes risk and cleanup.  Even newer  plants designed to be safer will still have large scale and transmission power loss and there is still the possibility to modify for weapons development.  The spent fuel from fission power plants is a long term expense and problem.  This waste material is a hazard and a target for terrorist that does not just go away; someone will be paying for the care of this stuff for a very very very long time.  We all live with the risk of having it around until someone comes up with a way to pay for the safe storage of radio-active waste for thousands and thousands and thousands of years.

More immediate is global warming.  This is a problem that is growing every year and becoming more serious and more costly to address.

Recent Post To Matt's blog 'of particular significance'

Matt, your invitation for other possibly novel solutions for the “hierarchy problem” invites an idea about why the Higgs field is locked at a relatively small value.

“The solution to the hierarchy problem involves a completely novel mechanism.   Easy to say — but got any ideas?  Arkani-Hamed gave us two examples of mechanisms which he had studied that he couldn’t make work — but perhaps someone else can do better.”

So here is my half baked idea, not entirely novel, as it is a composite of several older theories jumbled together:  Should a large volume in three dimensional space, (make it universal in size to avoid boundary questions) be filled with charge that has the property of mutually repelling all other charge.  Generally easier to visualize as point charged particles.  Now, although the pressure and volume energy is large the total average field is near zero as long as the point charges are stationary.  That is the charge in any direction is balanced by the charge in the opposite direction.  However, this would be unstable because the effective shape of stationary point charges is spherical.  And point charges in motion relative to all surrounding point charges take on a shape that packs more efficiently than stationary point charges thus reducing the pressure and volume energy.    Any change in kinetic energy of the charge elements (increase or decrease) would reduce the packing efficiency and increase the pressure.  This kinetic charge structure generates a non zero field.  Or you can view it the other way around and say this universal non zero field produces the charge.

Dark Matter not Totally Dark

"Dark Matter" isn't all that dark and it is hiding in plain sight as it were.  The missing "dark" matter is the "warped" structure of space itself; and this structure is an even greater portion of the total mass of the universe than is often suggested.  The mass of the structure of the universe is locked in place but this structure (fabric) is subject to distortion or curvature by all massive objects.  This distorted "fabric" is the "dark matter."  But most of the structure of the universe is far enough from galaxies to go unnoticed in our estimates of the total.  

And the massive structure of the universe is cold but not totally dark; it is the source of the "cosmic microwave background radiation."  This cosmic radiation is the signature of the motions that lock the structure of the universe in a solid but rarefied form.

Dark Matter

I believe that the bulk of "dark matter" is the "fabric of space."   That is, that the bits of charge that make up the "fabric" of the Universe are locked in the structure of the Universe but the "fabric" is distorted due to the ,mass / energy, of the bits.

Universe of Charge

I believe the Universe is filled with stuff that repels like bits of the same stuff.  One can think of these bits as mono-poles or bits of electrical charge or bits with some other magical repelling nature.  I will consider these bits as fractional bits of negative charge equal to one third the charge commonly ascribed to an electron.   “And so can you!”

The Least TOE

The least ToE, Theroy of Everything is no longer a secret; also known as the Little ToE. The Higgs is virtualy zero mass. And the Higgs has a charge of 1/3 that of the electron. All is made from these charge points and from empty spaces in the latice. For example, three Higgs charges move through the latice as an electron. A single Higgs is unstable but appears as a quark. A single unfilled hole in the latice also can appear as a quark with positive charge. The universe is filled with Higgs charges. The temperature of the Higgs latice is critical to the shape of the Higgs distribution, the individual cells. This determines the background temperature of the Universe. And it is this latice structure that regulates quantum mechanical interactions.

Fine Structure Constant Derived

--> The view of the lattice field, as being still and absolutely cold with close packing, is unreal. But with a temperature that yields Higgs cells in the shape of dodecahedra; displaced groups of Higgs, along with their dislocations are restricted in their freedom of motion. Restricted by the axes of the Higgs lattice. Direction of motion in the lattice is not restricted but dislocations one relative to another are restricted.

As the imaginary Higgs lattice increases in temperature from absolute zero - interaction of each Higgs with the lattice results in an effective shape of each cell of space that permits closer packing than so called close pack. This shape and packing maximum yields a minimum energy density that is nearly constant throughout the universe. The backgroung temperature of the universe.

Little TOE permits the derivation of all things from a minimum of parameters.

You may derive the fine structure constant from the Little TOE (theory of everything) view of quantum structure. This structure is three dimensional but has six axis of symmetry. Please note that time does not require an independent dimension. The fine structure constant can be thought of as a probability of interaction. This basic constant is 1/137. And varies from this value due to the local temperature or energy density of the quantum universe. From the view of the Little TOE, this “constant” can be seen in the probability of energy exchange of a photon and an electron.

Where an electron is three displaced elements of the universal lattice moving through the lattice structure. And where the photon is a quantized unit of energy moving through the lattice.
This is a bit like rolling dice. However the unit cell of the Little TOE lattice is not six sided. The LITTLE TOE lattice cell is a cool but not energy free dodecahedral cell of twelve sides and six axises. What is important in this exchange is not the rolling of the die but the freedom of motion of the lattice elements associated with the electron and the photon.
We find only 4 of 548 possible encounters permit the exchange. The 548 derives as 5X5X5X5 less 1, less (4X4X4 and 3X3 and 2 and 1). That is 625-77=548.
Why is the exchange not precisely 1/137? Two reasons. One, the electron is not a single entity but is three displaced lattice elements, three charged bits displaced from the structure of the fabric of space.   A second adjustment is required due to the temperature and resulting mass (energy) of the lattice itself.
