The World with Zero Postulation: Unraveling the Mysteries of Nature…

The_World_with_Zero__Cover_facebookFrom the book…

‘…The law of universal gravitation states that any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. This was the genius of Newton in seeing the same underlying force that causes all bodies in the universe, big or small, to attract each other. Using his new theory, he was able to predict with considerable accuracy the motion of planets, as well as the tiniest objects known to man in those days.

He himself was not fully comfortable, however, with the force of gravity. In a letter, he wrote ‘That one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum without the mediation of anything else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one another, is to me so great an absurdity that, I believe, no man who has in philosophic matters a competent faculty of thinking could ever fall into it.’ He was never able to assign a cause behind the existence of gravity. In the second edition of the Principia he wrote ‘I have not yet been able to discover the cause of these properties of gravity from phenomena and I feign no hypotheses… It is enough that gravity does really exist and acts according to the laws I have explained, and that it abundantly serves to account for all the motions of celestial bodies.’

It is however to be noted that the idea of gravity was not an entirely new concept outside Europe. In Siddhantha Siromani (Supreme Results) gravity was described by the 11th century Indian Mathematician Bhaskaracharya in the following terms:

Aakrishti sakthischa mahee thayaa yathkhastham guru swa abhimukham swa sakthyaa . aakrushyathe thath pathathi iti bhaathi same samanthaath kwa pathathi ayam khe

It says that the earth attracts the objects in the sky by its own force towards itself. He discusses the forces between the celestial bodies using a question: Where can the celestial bodies fall since they attract each other?

It was much after the death of Isaac Newton that modern science began to learn about electricity and magnetism in details. Around the beginning of the nineteenth century a vague relationship between electricity and magnetism began to be understood, especially due to the experiments conducted by Hans Christian Ørsted, André-Marie Ampère, Jean-Baptiste Biot, Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss, Félix Savart, Michael Faraday, etc. However, the knowledge that was being gathered was vastly chaotic. James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879) organized the knowledge by formulating a few general principles combining, both electricity and magnetism. His work was about finding the underlying principles that causes the various electrical and magnetic phenomena. Maxwell helped develop the Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution, which is a statistical means of describing aspects of the kinetic theory of gases…’

 

SnowflakesWilsonBentleyEmergence is the way complex systems and patterns arise out of a multiplicity of relatively simple interactions. This is central to the study of complex as well as chaotic systems. The simple components of the environment may form more complex emergent properties, as a whole. Relating to the closest we can get, the human perception of the world, we can say that what we perceive about the world is way greater than the signals that are fed to our bodies through our senses. When you look at a distant star, your perception of the star is way greater than the light that reaches your eyes from it.

New Books on Zero Postulation!

Kindle-Cover-abstraction-book2.0Abstraction in Theory:Zero Postulation Results: Theory of Everything

From the Back Cover: This book is a way forward towards the “theory of everything” in physics.True to this gigantic task,the author approaches the subject in a completely new way.The whole theory is based on the concept of “zero-postulation”,an area where others have been less than successful. The idea of “zero-postulation” in itself is a tremendous leap in the methods applied in studying sciences.Based on no assumption,this approach is totally based on solid grounds,unlike the other theories in existence.It is a neat and satisfactory description of the world. ‘Over some years now, a large part of the energies of the scientific community has been employed solely for finding a theory that will fit in all known happenings of the physical world. Various groups of scientists have tried to attack the problem from different ends. Some of these theories have been partly successful in explaining the known physical world. However none of these theories have been without shortcomings. Be it the much lauded String Theory or the Quantum Gravity postulation or any other such attempts towards arriving at a Theory of Everything, none have been proved to be foolproof. To say the least, nobody can deny that there is room for much improvement before we can even start thinking truly towards such a theory that would describe the known world satisfactorily and provide for a single basis of understanding the four forces in nature.’

The_World_with_Zero__Cover_for_KindleThe World with Zero Postulation: Unraveling the Mysteries of Nature…

From the Back Cover: ‘A World with Zero Postulation’ is a landmark book that tells the story of the development of our understanding of the universe in as simple terms as it can be said in. Embark on an incredible journey through time, as human understanding of science journeys from the ancient age, through the medieval age, to the age. It tells, in simple language, the very recent developments in the world of science in general and of physics in particular. ‘It becomes increasingly difficult for us to predict emergent phenomena, as there is an increase in the number of properties that we have to consider for doing that. However, it should also be kept in mind than merely a large number of insignificant components, coming together and constituting a given system, is not enough to ensure that we have emergent properties. The noise that is produced may sometimes subdue the emergent properties too. ‘

More on the Structure of Matter

Abstraction and Structures in Energy

Zero postulation and the principles of the Theory of Abstraction are used to study structures of energy inside a black hole, which is incredibly heavy and incredibly small. We chase the questions, how matter (with various structures) is formed from energy and the energy making up matter has to be in what orientation to form the matter that we see. We arrive at the fundamental model and the equations describing the formation of structure in energy.

The Theory of Abstraction and the principle of Zero Postulation describes everything that there ‘is’ in the universe (including spacetime) as an expression of energy. It explains directivity towards optimized solutions and cluster formation in the universe as inherent properties of the energy itself. It must also be able to describe the formation of various structures in energy. As such, it is of great interest for us to investigate how the matter that we see around us is formed from the various orientations of the structured formed in energy.The_World_with_Zero__Cover_for_Kindle

A theory that is able to describe the world in totality has to keep the number of basic postulates it depends upon to zero or near zero. Reductionism hits a dead end in this regard. On the other hand, abstraction as the starting point of building up a theory may be seen to be of fitting use. It would be much more than a new way of tackling the problem. Even abstract postulates do away with the shackles that bind our theories into the system and bar them from being total descriptions of the system. The abstraction we are talking about here may be defined as, ‚Postulation of non-postulation‛ or, in other words, ‚A system of postulation that gives equal weights to all possible solutions inside the system and favors none of such solutions over others.‛

Abstraction automatically gives rise to optimized solutions within the universal set of all possible solutions, as has been shown in this book. It is these optimized solutions that make up and drive the non-abstract parts of the world, while the non-optimized solutions remain ‘hidden’ from the material world, inside the abstract world. Starting from a basis of no postulation, we build our theory. As we go on piling up possibilities, we come to a similar basis for understanding the four non-contact forces of nature known till date.

The difference in ranges of these forces is explained from this basis in this book. Zero postulation or abstraction as the basis of theory synthesis allows us to explore even imaginary and chaotic non-favored solutions as possibilities. With no postulation as the fundamental basis, we are thus able to pile up postulated results or favored results, but not the other way round. We keep describing such implications of abstraction in this book. We deal with the abstraction of observable parameters involved in a given system (quantum, relativistic, chaotic, non-chaotic) and formulate a similar basis of understanding them.

Abstraction and Structures in Energy

Zero postulation and the principles of the Theory of Abstraction are used to study structures of energy inside a black hole, which is incredibly heavy and incredibly small. We chase the questions, how matter (with various structures) is formed from energy and the energy making up matter has to be in what orientation to form the matter that we see. We arrive at the fundamental model and the equations describing the formation of structure in energy.

We investigate the blueprint for the structures in energy. This helps us to understand the formation of structures of matter as we know them. Abstraction takes into account the scaling-ratio concerned for a given accuracy of observations. At different scaling-ratios, these structures can show completely different emergent phenomena. Again, these emergent phenomena depend upon the given set of dimensions that we consider for a given set of observations. The points inside a given system of energy organize themselves at different scaling-ratios to form different orientations or patterns. These different orientations or patterns may give rise to different orientations of matter. Read more here

Abstraction in Theory – Laws of Physical Transactions

Considering transport or tendency of transport of physical entities from an initial to a final point,we come to a similar basis of understanding of various physical phenomena.The trajectory-behavior of such transport represents the effect or field of influence.This way,we may explain cluster-formation in the universe,an expanding universe,etc.This may also lead to a similar basis for understanding the four non-contact forces of nature.Also,for different ranges of acceleration in the field formed in spacetime,we have different properties of matter interacting.This may explain the difference in ranges of the various forces.
