Born to do Math 13 - Tension in Space

Born to do Math 13 - Tension in Space

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: With electrons, we think of them as particles, but it may be helpful to think of them as reflective of the tension between individual protons and the rest of information space. Often, or sometimes, this tension takes the form of point-wise or point-like electrons interacting via photons. Other times, the electrons take the form of probability clouds – as we’ve noted off tape – because electrons don’t actually orbit nuclei and protons like little planets going around the Sun.

They exist instead as probability clouds of various shapes, but not exactly spatially diffuse, but spatially undefined, clouds around the protons or nuclei that they are associated with. And that’s enough of that—but! To wrap up, it might be helpful to think of them as the form that the tension between a proton—an electron can be thought of as—and the rest of information space, whether it is point-wise particle or a probability cloud.

Electrons are reflective of the tension between individual protons and the shape of space, basically, which is determined by the distribution of matter.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: So you’re talking about a tension between electron, proton, and space based on the distribution of matter, to summarize quick.

RR: Yea, my guess is that the electromagnetic interactions is what largely carries gravitation. That you don’t need gravitons, which are gravitation carrying particles that have never been discovered, but which are brutally hard to discover because the gravitational force is 10^40th times weaker than the other forces.
