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
So the frequency we are talking about is the frequency of experience? Of existence? Why is the frequency of existence for that one clock 1 for itself? It can compare its own frequency to other frequencies and then calculate its own frequency...
And if it is 1, then C would just equal "h", as "h" X 1 is just "h". So if I observe myself, my consciousness = 6.626068 × 10-34 joules?
Okay, imagine: you're the clock. Because your spacetime is divided into quantized units depending on your frequency, you can't go beyond a certain limit. This is why we have things like Planck's constant. We can not divide things infinitely because the frequency of the basic building blocks of our frame of reference only creates a finite reality.
Another wacky example: let's say you're the solar system that is self-aware and intellectually capable of studying itself. And one cycle of the earth around the sun is one moment of consciousness for you. You would observe planets as disappearing from one location and appearing in the other, you won't be observing the in-between states. Even stranger: many phenomena will pop in and out of existence. If you encounter a human being that could tell you "your frequency is 'this'", you would say this is the perception of this human being and that your experience is continuous, not quantized or not defined as a certain frequency. You would label that as the frequency of him, not of you.
That was a nice example.
But then in the end "C" is not a constant, at least not universally.
And this also means that "f" cannot be defined as one, EVEN for yourself, (it makes sense, yes) but you can't have this as a universal formula then, because it might be individual for every person. The frequencies of consciousness are different, there for C will always be different. What are you trying to accomplish with this formula in the end then?
ALSO: what defines the frequency of C?
Indeed, you could call it 'one' or 'not applicable' when looking at 'your own' frequency.
What it accomplishes to think like this: there are many phenomena that we attribute to the shift in frequency of light and sound, the Doppler effect and so forth. There are other phenomena, such as time dilation and length contraction, where the fabric of time and space itself is shifting. These are currently seen as "how it is" with no further explanation why (aside from establishing the model of spacetime). The answer lies in how frequencies shift related to our frame of reference, defining the experience of spacetime for ourselves and for other people that we observe.
