I just now discovered that back from the future advanced Wheeler-Feynman black body photons have peak frequency ~ 10 Hertz resonant with our mental EEG brain waves!

  • Jack Sarfatti 1) Cramer continued: “hypothesizing a configuration of mass and then calculating the ‘metric’ or distortion of spacetime that it produced … But there is another way … that has been labeled ‘metric engineering.’ One specifies a spacetime metric that will produce some desired result, for example a wormhole or warp drive, and then calculates the distribution of masses that would be required to produce such a metric … General relativity … suggested … wormholes, time machines, and warp drives that could transport a local mass at speeds far faster than the speed of light.” Cramer then discusses objections based on classical energy conditions, Hawking’s chronology protection conjecture and quantum inequalities for anti-gravity repulsive negative energy compensated later by gravity attractive positive energy etc. None of them are fatal as shown in Enrico Rodrigo’s new Star Ship book. Rodrigo was a physics undergrad at Cal Tech with John Archibald Wheeler’s student Kip Thorne. Rodrigo then got his Ph.D. with Wheeler at the University of Texas. Cramer also discusses the dark energy problem. The observed dark energy density accelerating the expansion of 3D space in our universe is deduced from the surprising anomalous redshifts of Type 1a supernovae etc. It is ~ 6.7 x 10^-10 Joules per cubic meter. This is at odds with the quantum field theory prediction which is, depending what matter fields one plugs in, is at least ~ 10^40 to as much as ~ 10^113 Joules per cubic meter. I now make some comments that are not in Cramer’s Foreword. General relativity in the weak field limit changes the source term in Poisson’s gravity equation from (mass density) to (mass density)(1 + 3w). The parameter w is the ratio of pressure to energy density of the source of the gravity curvature field. Real particles with speeds small compared to the speed of light are called “cold matter” and they have w ~ 0. Real transverse polarized photons in macro-quantum coherent Glauber states are far-field radiation and they have w = +1/3. In contrast, virtual photons have longitudinal polarization as well as the two transverse polarizations corresponding to their quantum spin 1. Their macro-quantum coherent Glauber states correspond to non-radiating near electromagnetic fields outside the AC power lines of our vulnerable to cyber attack US electrical grid, the near fields inside our automobiles, computers etc. The virtual photons inside the quantum vacuum forming random zero point fluctuations have w = -1. This follows from the symmetric Bose-Einstein quantum statistics; the Lorentz group symmetry of Einstein’s 1905 special relativity together with Einstein’s Equivalence Principle (EEP) that special relativity works in Local Inertial Frames (LIFs). When you plug in w = -1 into the dominant gravity source term you get -2(mass density). Therefore, the random zero point virtual photon generates universal repulsive anti-gravity that appears as dark energy. But what about the virtual photons not in the lowest sharp number incoherent Fock state, but in the coherent Glauber state? If w = -1 for near EM fields then they should also antigravitate. Do they? Since the coupling of EM fields to spacetime warping is G/c^4 is very small, we may not see such a hypothetical effect.
  • Jack Sarfatti 2) There is something quite suggestive about the observed dark energy density. It corresponds to a mean photon wavelength equal to the geometric mean of the quantum gravity Planck length ~ 10^-35 meters with the largest Hubble scale of our observable universe ~ 10^26 meters. The geometric mean is then (10^-35 x 10^26)^1/2 ~ 10^-3 meters or 3 x 10^8/10^-3 ~ 3 x 10^11 Hz. Now, it turns out that this geometric mean is the actual proper thickness of our future de Sitter cosmological horizon of area A. Note, it’s the future not the past particle horizon. Hawking about 1973 predicted gravitationally redshifted black body radiation from evaporating black hole surface horizons with peak wavelength ~ A^1/2 for the distant detectot, where A is the area-entropy of the horizon. However, and this is my original prediction, Hawking neglected a second higher energy black body radiation from the quantum thickness of that same horizon. It turns out that this redshifted component has a peak wavelength equal to the geometric mean of the UV cutoff length L with the IR cutoff length ~ A^1/2. Indeed, the redshifted thickness horizon black body radiation has energy density ~ hc/L^2A. Now if you use L = Planck length Lp and the Hubble area you get precisely the observed value of the dark energy density. However, that should correspond to spin 2 black body gravity waves causing the dark energy if we could show that it has w = -1. The Unruh effect shows that virtual bosons in the quantum vacuum of a LIF looks like real black body bosons in a coincident LNIF with a temperature ~ proper acceleration of the LNIF. Using the de Sitter metric in the static LNIF representation g00 = 1 – r^2/A, the observer-dependent cosmological horizon is at r = A^1/2. The proper accelerations of the static LNIFs are ~ g00^-1/2dg00/dr where we are at r = 0. However, r = 0 is the degenerate point where the coincident static LNIF and LIF merge. So, this may explain why the advanced Wheeler-Feynman future de Sitter horizon thickness radiation has w = -1. Now what about back from our future advanced Wheeler-Feynman thermal photons? We must use the electron-positron Compton wavelength ~ 10^-13 meters for L. The geometric mean is then (10^-13 x 10^26)^1/2 ~ 3 x 10^7 meters, i.e. ~ 10 Hz, which is the EEG brainwave region.
