A New Description of Nature - The Way to Unification
Abstract:
A model of the structure of space and time is proposed. It consists of a discrete four-spatial-dimensional space where the fourth dimension is closed on itself, and a discrete time dimension. A single gravitational- interaction-"charge" is obtained, and a unification of all the interactions of nature, by the electrodiscrete
interaction, is demonstrated.
Conclusions:
There is a connection between our approach to describing nature, which is reflected by the mathematical tools we have developed, and our failure to unify all the forces of nature under one theory. The beauty of the calculus misled physics for hundreds of years. A new description of nature is presented here - a description which denies our intuitive notions of continuity of space and time. The new structure consists of a discrete four-spatial- dimensional (DFSD) space where the fourth dimension is closed on itself, and a discrete time dimension. We conclude the following: 1. The closed-fourth-spatial dimension appears to be related to our internal clocks and, as such, gives rise to the space-time description of the Theory of Relativity. 2. The discrete picture, where space and time are no longer continuous but have discrete structure, modifies our space and time symmetries and hence requires modifications of the laws of conservation of momentum, angular momentum and energy. Complementarity and Heisenberg-Uncertainty (which are principles that express in qualitative terms the physical content of quantum mechanics), are a consequence of the corrections to the conservation laws of the continuous description of space and time. Hence, the breakdown of our continuous space and time symmetries due to the discreteness, as described by the DFSD space model, gives rise to the behavior of nature in the Heisenberg-Uncertainty way. 3. In addition, the new description of nature presented here suggests a different symmetry for the phase of the de Broglie wave - it is no longer a continuous symmetry but a discrete one (the symmetry is broken or reduced). Thus, the breakdown of the continuous symmetry of the phase of the de Broglie wave due to the discreteness, as described by the DFSD space model, modifies the law of conservation of electrical charge. Gravity is a consequence of the correction to the conservation law (of electrical charge) of the continuous description of the phase of the de Broglie wave. In other words, the requirement of a local symmetry with respect to a phase change of the de Broglie wave of a charged particle, as described in the discrete space and time proposed here, defines a new field, the electrodiscrete
field, as the requisite compensating field.
Hence, there exists a correcting field to the electromagnetic field, compensating for the inaccuracies brought about by our continuous description of nature. Gravity is a consequence of this correcting field. The electrodiscrete field is the correct description of
nature and has to be regarded as the unifying field for
electromagnetism and gravity, and for the weak and the strong
nuclear forces as well.
Hence, the breakdown of our continuous space and time symmetries due to the discreteness, as described by the DFSD space model, gives rise to the multi-force appearance of our continuous-manifold nature. In summary, The breakdown of space and time symmetries due to the discreteness, as described by the proposed model, gives rise to the behavior of nature in the Heisenberg-Uncertainty way, and to the multi-force appearance of our continuous-manifold nature. Furthermore, this model provides a deeper understanding of the nature of time, and appears to provide the "hidden variables" of the Quantum behavior of nature. In the article "A New Description of Nature - The Way to Unification", we lay out the structure of the DFSD space model, and then argue that this model fits the picture that has just been drawn. |
