Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
OK two things:
1) What is the unit of measurement of C? E is measured in Joules, C is measured in...? Joules?
2) Chiren states that C is a constant (in the livestream he said so) he said something about it being the ration of...can't remember. It cannot be a constant though, as "h" is already a constant and "f" is a variable. It has to be a variable. Explain?
Questions! Awesome :D. (I love it when people ask questions rather than jumping to conclusions very quickly)
1) Sure, we're talking about the basic quantized building blocks so if you'd want to come up with experiments to study the behavior of them, then you could measure these units in, say Joules. C=hf is a very fundamental theoretical statement, in the same sense that you could talk about a bar of gold as "Bar of Gold = hf". What is the bar? Is it centimeters? Joules? Kilograms? Centimeters? It is of course all of those things depending on how you approach it.
This would seem like it would then say absolutely nothing new about the bar, and this is actually true because it's simply stating the obvious, right? However, it's an important starting point to state that this bar of gold is subject to the laws of physics, including relativity and, on an atomic level, quantum mechanics. So far, so obvious. So why is it important to put all those obvious things together? Because by doing that, we can easily point out one astonishing fact: the fundamental repercussions of relativity on the bar's 'existence'.
In quantum mechanics, we look at the 'weirdness' and accept that it has existential repercussions. Even if we might not fully grasp what they are, they are nevertheless a huge part of the debate about the quantum world, except for those who subscribe to the 'shut up and calculate' philosophy. With the theory of relativity, the philosophical repercussions have been overlooked much more.
Since space and time are the same fabric, you can look at our bar from both angles: it is both 10 light-seconds and ten seconds long. If the bar would suddenly pop into existence right now and it disappears again after 5 seconds, only the first 5 light-seconds of the bar will have existed from your frame of reference. The bar has effectively been cut in half, and the other half was unable to have any influence on your reality in any way. It did not interact with you through light, gravity or any type of observable way. The other half effectively did not exist.
We can apply this to molecules as well. Go below something like 200 attoseconds and you don't even have enough time for a simple H2 molecule to come into existence. From our frame of reference, or our 'consciousness', the pattern that makes up everything we experience is the result of such fundamental spacetime units, which are not only subject to the laws of relativity where space can not exist without time, but also to the laws of quantum mechanics. This is the core of C=hf and everything that is explained in Chapter 2, Part 3 are basic repercussions of it.
2) C is not a constant if you want to observe someone else's frame of reference (it helps a lot to replace 'consciousness' by 'frame of reference'). But since every single minimum unit of spacetime that makes up your consciousness is always the basic reference frame that, through interaction with other units (in an abstract arrow of time) you can observe reality with, for you, within your own frame of reference, C can only be a constant. This is can be pretty abstract and any sort of analogy would be flawed but let me try anyway: imagine a clock that is somehow self-aware, it is 'conscious' and let's say one minimum unit of consciousness for the clock is 0.2 seconds. As outsiders we could make all sorts of assumptions and intellectual constructs and say things like: "the clock is experiencing reality at a frequency of 0.2!". But if the clock wants to scientifically study its own reality, what is its frequency? It can not establish a certain number to that, it can only label other observed frequencies of other phenomena. The frequency of the clock's frame of reference is 1 for itself cause it can't really be anything else. But put two of these clocks together and increase the velocity of one and you might have some very interesting things happen to how one clock observes the frequency of the other.
Btw I'm just explaining it the best I can with my limited knowledge (compared to Chiren's). But shoot if you have more questions!
"Bar of Gold = hf". What is the bar? Is it centimeters? Joules? Kilograms? Centimeters? It is of course all of those things depending on how you approach it."
Shouldn't it be Joule, because that's what h*f is?
Sorry, I still don't get it.
h is expressed in Joules per Second - f is expressed in 1/s therefore C, Bar of Gold, Energy = J
Joules is defined as (kg*m²)/s²
makes sense for me
Than I looked deborglie up in wiki: if I now messure this on a specific objects, lets say a photon - due the frequency I can define it's energy (but not his mass).
can makes sense to me
BoG=hf expressend in centimeters ??
Don't get that
it's not a mathematical formula in the sense that you can calculate a specific amount of consciousness with a given frequency as far as i understood it only says that consciousness is made up by the frequency things experience other things.
of course that formula is misleading then.
misleading... yea you could say that. I think it's a fail
If what you say it's true than there is a need to define "experience of things"
only to complete the argumentation
m beeing kg and c beeing m/s
therefore energy beeing (kg*m²)/s² which would be joule...
makes sense to me
