And God Said Gravitational Potential!

The question if we live in a simulation is discussed by Ethan Siegel with reference to the 2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?

The debate connects to my app on Dark Energy at App Store allowing you to play with a cosmological model where gravitational potential $\phi$ is primordial from which mass $\rho$ is connected through the equation $\rho =\Delta\phi$ of local differentiation with the Laplacian differential operator $\Delta$.

In this model a fluctuation of $\phi$ around a zero initial state can create massiv positive and negative mass $\rho$ through the action of differentiation with the power of amplifying fluctuations, thus generating (seemingly out of nothing) universa of positive and negative mass which repel each other and drift apart.

What we can see may thus be one universe of positive mass with its negative counterpart since long gone beyond sight, but with the repellation still felt as dark energy.

Further, visible matter can be connected to $\Delta\phi$ being singular (like a delta-function), while dark matter may correspond to $\Delta\phi$ being smooth.

In the debate the idea of gravitation as primordial "operating system" is touched upon, but is not penetrated since the common view is that it is mass which is primordial from which gravitation magically is created by magic instant action at distance. Turning this common view around making gravitation/gravitational potential primordial, may open to understanding both dark matter and energy. What do you think?

  1. I think you've got it right again Claes. Kudos for this fascinating work that I just finished reading. Ironically, it disproves CAGW & mathematically proves the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics to boot!

    Is your thesis a subset of string theory? How is it compatible or incompatible with string theory? I see you said something critical about it but I don't know the specific criticisms.

    Do you think so-called dark energy is really just the micro potential energies at each location in space at any given time, and which therefore cannot be measured or observed and only come to fruition if that potential is exercised?

    Would you agree that the universe is the time-integral of all waves at all locations in the universe?
