The Footprint of Potential

a rough sketch

Chronology of the Universe

Eternal Origins → Present

( a metaphysics hypothesis )

introductory note: Hitherto Inscrutable Quantum Mechanics (QM) has at least two 'faces' which we are now (OCT 2017) aware of:
(a) the Potential/Possibility/Probabilistic 'face', and
(b) the Wheeler It-from-Bit 'face' as a prelude to the Lloyd Bits Compute the Universe 'face' build-out thereof

# rough sketch chronology - 1

Eternal Potential - as opposed-to Nothing - defines Eternal Origins.

# rough sketch chronology - 1.5

* Voids abhor voids 
  (proposed axiom by Summas Theory) 

* The void "couldn't take it" any more

* Realms of Potential
  some realization,
  however abstract

# rough sketch chronology - 1.75

The conjecture:

Within the primordial realms of Potential/Possibility
perhaps just a single pulse of energy

which germinated from the potential future  
by (hypothesized/theorized)
‘backward causation’ (aka "retrocausality")*** 

tracked-back and unhinged 
the equilibrium of Eternal Origins

*** i.e. a Quantum Mechanics sub-theory that future possibilities (or energy) may somehow impact present possibilities (or energy)

# rough sketch chronology - 2

Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM) -
specifically the Potential Face of Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM),
makes an appearance on-stage in primordial realms

# rough sketch chronology - 3

The interplay of Eternal Potential and Primordial Quantum Mechanics (QM) → yields Infinite Quest for Potential (Q4P)

The  chronology/trajectory/direction/purpose/teleology/arc
of the universe
will follow the axis of my hypothesized/proposed*** Super-Formula

Q4P → C+ → E+


*** proposed 2005 in  Summa II /   section: Direction of the Universe

# rough sketch chronology - 4

The interplay of Q4P and Primordial QM → yields the Wheeler It-from-Bit face of QM.......
Then the build-out of the Wheeler face,
the Lloyd computing face of QM,
- evolves

THUS, further filling-out pre-Big Bang QM.

# rough sketch chronology - 5

Q4P / pre-Big Bang QM plots the escape of the purely metaphysical - from the void into →
metaphysical cum reality

# rough sketch chronology - 6

Q4P / pre-Big Bang QM splits the (hypothesized) Zero-Point and ignites the Big Bang.

[The Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago.]

Meaning, Potential, not Random chance, ignites the universe

[ From a metaphysical perspective, splitting the Zero-Point, as well yields polarities:
Pluses:Minuses... Good:Evil... proto-Female:proto-Male... et al..... ]

# rough sketch chronology - 7

Q4P/QM is the prime catalyst on stage choreographing the unfolding universe production; it has vast influence....

# rough sketch chronology - 8

Q4P trumps Entropy
and sustains the advance of our universe.

[ Evolution in a snapshot ]

Q4P = Quest for Potential
Q3 = Quantum-information processing + Quantum-computing + Quantum-engineering

Q4P/Q3 is the author’s fusion of Summa’s Quest for Potential (Q4P) with Lloyd’s Quantum Mechanics;

Q4P/Q3 drives Evolution

(see for fuller presentation)


By the Big Bang point at the latest,
Q4P is fused with Q3
and we deploy the term Q4P to incorporate both together in concert.

# rough sketch chronology - 9

Q4P choreographs the grand cosmic drama/trajectory of
exploding stars across the heavens → elements → life forms on earth → 21st Century humans and advanced consciousness

Q4P (or a derivative thereof) is the Cosmological Constant identified by Albert Einstein in 1917*; Einstein theorized the Cosmological Constant as the counter-force to gravity's otherwise inevitably imploding the universe. [ Actually, it is reverse, i. e. Gravity slows down the forward march of the Cosmological Constant aka Lambda.

# rough sketch chronology - 11

The Cosmological Constant [Q4P] has become identified with the simplest form of Dark Energy (Wiki / Cosmological Constant / Oct 22, 2017]

[ note: The Cosmological Constant is also known by a shorthand notation lambda, or /\ ]

# rough sketch chronology - 12

"In physical cosmology and astronomy, dark energy [Q4P] is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of space, tending to accelerate the expansion of the universe." [Wiki / Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

[ So,
the Cosmological Constant = lambda = /\ = (simple) dark energy = a salient & manifest derivative of Q4P ]

# rough sketch chronology - 13

"Assuming that the standard model of cosmology is correct, the best current measurements indicate that dark energy [Q4P] contributes 68.3% of the total energy in the present-day observable universe." [Wiki / Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

# rough sketch chronology - 14

"Dark energy [Q4P] is the most accepted hypothesis to explain the observations since the 1990s indicating that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate." [Wiki Dark Energy / Oct 22, 2017]

# no Dark Energy [Q4P], then the Big Crunch [imploding universe]
# sufficient Dark Energy [Q4P], then Expanding universe

Meaning, as well, that Potential [Q4P] is the prime determinant of the ultimate denouement of the universe; not gravity; not entropy; and most certainly not randomness

* In 1929 (Berlin) Einstein incorrectly retracted his 1917 hypothesis; but the scientific community has upheld the original (1917) hypothesis.

personal note: Both of our families lived in Berlin in 1929, and both emigrated to the USA in the 1930s, Einstein in March 1933 (while lecturing in CA → Princeton, NJ), and Birnbaum in October 1938 (pre-Kristallnact, Berlin → Madison, WISC)
