THE OM PARTICLE : On Life, the Universe and Everything

“Upon this first and in one sense the sole, rule of reason, that in order to learn you must desire to learn, and in so desiring not be satisfied with what you already incline to think, there follows one corollary which itself deserves to be inscribed upon every wall of the city of philosophy:** ****Do not block the way of inquiry.” ***Charles Sanders Peirce*

** Translation**. Learning can only happen when we are not satisfied with what we already know. Without desire to learn, there is no learning. Create a thirst, and learning will follow. Inquiry is good, healthy and natural. A good teacher does not block the road to inquiry.

What is Time? What is light? What are atoms? What are black holes? Why do these things exist? My inquiry begins with these questions. What is life? Why do we dream? What is consciousness? What is the ultimate fate of the Universe? So many questions still need to be answered.

We use to think the world was flat. We were wrong. We use to think the sun and planets went around the earth. We were wrong. Nature is not flat. Nature is not round. Nature is fractal.

Meteorologists were of the first to recognize the importance of chaos theory and fractal geometry in nature. In 1961, Edward Lorenz, a meteorologist, discovered something very strange while experimenting with his a computer model he was using to model weather patterns. He discovered that small changes to the input parameters of his experiment resulted in huge changes in the “trajectory” of the simulated weather patterns over time. This is commonly refereed to as “The Butterfly Effect”. Butterfly effect is the “sensitive dependence on initial conditions” in which a small change in one state of a system can result in huge differences in the future states of the system. Theoretically, a butterfly flapping its wings in Brazil can cause a cascade of atmospheric events that, weeks later, spur the formation of a tornado in Texas. This is a beautiful analogy and is why it is called the “Butterfly Effect”. It is my contention that nature is better understood though the eyes of chaos theory. Fractal geometry is almost always if not always an emergent property chaotic systems.

Biologists were next to realize that fractals were everywhere; from the human vasculature systems, to the structures of trees and plants, and more recently, in the dynamics of our heart beats, brain waves. Fractals are even in cells and DNA. Fractal patterns have also been found at the quantum scale as seen in the quantum hall effect. Most areas of science have embraced the fractal as an integral feature of the systems they study. Cosmology seems to be the last holdout in recognizing their importance. The fractal debate in mainstream cosmology focuses solely on the fractal distribution of matter in the Universe. On the one hand, the distribution of matter in the universe does look fractal and on the other hand, in order for relativity to be correct, the universe must be isotropic and homogeneous at some very large scale. {Isotropic: Looks the same in all directions. Homogeneous: Uniform in structure and content throughout.} In short, fractals are incompatible with relativity. Was Einstein wrong? Of course not.

In the the theory I am proposing, the universe can isotropic, homogeneous AND fractal, all at the same time. All of these “things” can and do co-exist. Some regions of the universe are homogeneous and isotropic and some regions of the universe are fractal. Without homogeneity, how would one recognize the fractal? Without the fractal, how would one recognize homogeneity? In my theory, everyone gets to be right. In my theory, no one needs to be wrong. Everyone wins.

The fractal paradigm represents a paradigm shift in the way describe and explain nature. The founders of the standard model of cosmology did not know about fractals which is why their theories don’t include them. In the theory present in *The OM-Particle*, the “laws of physics” are seen as an emergent property of fractal geometry and not the other way around. Fractals are not an accident of nature. Nature is an accident of fractal geometry. This is contrary to the thinking of modern cosmology that sees fractals as an accident and a nuisance. In the cosmology presented in *THE OM PARTICLE*, fractals are the rule, not the exception.

Below is a list of the topics that I plan on addressing in THE OM PARTICLE. As new articles come on line, I will link them and highlight them in the list so you will know which topics have been addressed. I hope you will visit this site often to find my new articles and writings. These pages allow comments, so please feel free to ask question and make comments. Please be polite. Children might be watching.
