Born to do Math 14 - Pseudo-Particles
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
March 21, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: But I would guess that you don’t need gravitons, though they may still arise in certain situations. In quantum mechanics, according to the rules of quantum mechanics, you can have all sorts of pseudo-particles popping up in all sorts of situations.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Does this imply pseudo-antiparticles as well?

RR: I don’t know. People know so little about gravitons that they are unsure whether—actually, I am definitely talking out of my butt, and I may or may not be talking correctly, but I assume among the things they don’t know about gravitons is if they are their own antiparticles. But I assume one thing they do know based on the necessary spin of the gravitons, and I don’t know what their spin is.

I know that neutrinos, which are super light particles – maybe the light particles known besides photons, which have no rest mass at all. Neutrinos are so hard to work with that it’s not known whether neutrinos are their own antiparticles. But anyhow, I don’t think there are gravitons for the most part. I think that what looks like gravitation comes from electromagnetic interactions, which themselves determine the structure of space based on information.

It’s the most efficient structure of the information space containing these information generating interactions with these interactions, for the most part, carried by photons, which are, for the most part, the result of—is it for the most part? Not necessarily—well, they are all the result of electromagnetic interactions. But you have super powerful ones that come from, super powerful X-rays that come from, protons getting or fusing into a proton and a neutron. That releases like a 4-million electron volt photon, or something like that. Some hugely powerful X-ray.
