  • “On evacuation and atomization uses his self-energy and on drifting atomization sea waters skywards”

    Anti-Tsunami Landscapes

  • In Penrose's OR the size of an isolated superposed system (gravitational self-energy E of a separated mass) is inversely related to the coherence time T according to the uncertainty principle E = h/T, where h (actually "hbar") is Planck's constant over 2 pi.

    Coordinated Evolution

  • The threshold for Penrose OR is given by the indeterminacy principle E = ħ/t, where E is the gravitational self-energy (i.e. the degree of spacetime separation given by the superpositioned mass), ħ is Planck's constant over 2Ï€, and t is the time until OR occurs.

    A Third Choice (ID Hypothesis)

  • Pruned: “On evacuation and atomization uses his self-energy and on drifting atomization sea waters skywards”

    “On evacuation and atomization uses his self-energy and on drifting atomization sea waters skywards”

  • There is a divergent self-energy for the electron due to the energy of its coulomb field that diverges much faster (power law) in the classical case than in the quantum case (logarithmically), considered as a function of the cutoff on the “size” of the electon.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • Attempting to remove this by putting in a bare mechanical mass that adds to the electrostatic self-energy (for finite electon size) to give the physical mass, and including the internal stresses in the electron to maintain the finite size (with hopes of taking the size to zero at the end of the calculation), was done by Lorentz.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • The self-energy of the electron as well as vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field seemed to be infinite.

    Quantum Field Theory

  • "The threshold for Penrose's objective reduction (OR) is given by the indeterminacy principle E = ħ/t, where E is the gravitational self-energy or the degree of spacetime separation given by the superpositioned mass, ħ is the reduced Planck constant, and t is the time until OR occurs."

    New Scientist - Online News

  • The threshold for Penrose's objective reduction (OR) is given by the indeterminacy principle E = h/t. where E is the gravitational self-energy or the degree of spacetime separation given by the superpositioned mass, h is the reduced Planck constant, and t is the time until OR occurs.

    New Scientist - Online News

  • The potential energy of the system is additive, hence the electrostatic energy of a system of N point charges is, where the condition on the summation over j excludes the (infinite) self-energy.
