​Infrared distance from time duration for motion detection?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 12:56 pm

For nearer to earth objects, might one utilize low resolution infrared camera to detect motion for various time durations? That is, for motion detected for shorter duration, then object of course is closer, in comparison to infrared object further away, which would require a longer duration for motion detection; hence a rough linear scaling as to object’s distance – such as for further inapparent KBO (Kuiper belt objects), or red dwarf companion etc.?

One could even use infrared time to motion detection for Puto as a fiduciary for KBO distance; that is whether an object is a KBO, or closer/farther away than ~ KBO distance.

Might one even detect a slight infrared glow from Oort cloud? That is, even though the number density is probably very low, still at our great distance might it have a slight infrared presentation – not unlike Milky Way infrared glow from red dwarfs?

However might dust account for any such possible detected torus like Oort cloud glow? At millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength, wouldn’t one detect such dust?

So for near to earth objects, is even the Oort cloud possibly detectable, but in the infrared?

Double play for carbon cap?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 2:26 pm

Secularization of a renewable resource – American timber? Rather than nature’s fires and our containment efforts, harvest such wood for sale. Also statistically there is less wood to burn; hence a cap on carbon emissions. Such reduction of carbon emissions could be sold in a variation of cap and trade. Thus doubling the value of such timber harvest.

Cosmic entanglement: Do we detect and experience only a small fraction of universe’s total energy? The very early fraction (10^-12 seconds), and fermion mass spectrum

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 1:46 pm

For massive neutrinos and Big Bang fermion mass spectrum, and for assumption (comparing density number of baryons to neutrinos, as for proxy of later nucleosynthesis?) that most of mass is carried off by neutrinos, then most of mass\energy of universe(s) 3-volume becomes no longer descriptive (i.e. entanglement), until Big Crunch. Then only for extremely rapid turn around of BC to BB, is total mass/energy of universe and System revealed. Thus is what we see, detect, and experience, just a small fraction (10^-3?) of such total mass/energy of ‘universe’ for very early fraction of ‘universe’ ?

Also for << 10^-12 second, what effect might such fermion mass spectrum have on various very early processes, such as electro-weak epoch, hadron formation, and so-called still earlier superhadron (combination of more massive quarks; such as pentaquark?) formation, and clumping of gluons i.e. glueballs, and associated increasing color interaction strength?

From nature’s perspective, such early universe short time span might not seem so unusual, since chemical transition states occur, and are explored, at 10^-9 -10^-12 seconds with laser pulses.

So whether for nucleosynthesis, or for quark/gluon ‘pudding’ with quark ‘raisins’, heterogeneity would seem more typical; since randomness is just an idealization, even for mathematics.

Acheulean vs Oldowan tool kit?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 5:40 pm

Is the former just characteristic of our species?

However Neanderthal roots probably are exceedingly deep. For example, homo sapien and homo erectus jaw bone would seem more similar than that of Neanderthal’s.

Neanderthal, based on it’s robust physique, was probably always a big game hunter; hence the usage of acheulean tools (i.e. spear points, after fire hardened points etc.). Also homo sapien, and homo erectus (eventually?), must have been in part hunters; hence use of acheulean tools. Therefore​, acheulean tools (any such findings) would not seem specific to our species.

Planck scale: Simulation of randomness?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 9:20 am

Might deformations of manifold on Planck scale, serve as a simulation of an approach to randomness? Then for finer than Planck scale, might one have further refinement of such randomness approach, by utilization of rational set? Such as Cantor’s ternary set, of ever removing middle ⅓; or a 3-dimensional version of Weirstrauss function?

However since the primes are clustered, so too the rationals; thus are the rationals not so suitable in a simulation of randomness of deformations of a manifold? That is, such deformations would seem to be intermittently clustered both spatially and temporally.

A physically related concept, entropy, seems in prusuit of randomness; that is the former expressed as the macrostate characterized by the greatest number of microstates. So entropy is ever trying to spread out energy into a uniform distribution; yet never attaining such goal; consistent with no heat death scenario for the universe?

Is heterogeneity, rather than homogeneity, for Big Bang nucleosynthesis, another example consistent with no attainment of perfect randomness?

So it would seem that since there is no perfect randomness, thus there is always information; even for mathamatics, such as Ramsey theory? Would this then seem consistent with Modified Set Model MSM generality: the alleged ongoing maximizing of cardinality of sets, such as for entropy and information, in comparison to alternative scenarios?

Motion of a manifold

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — zankaon @ 10:33 am

Would observed and interpreted motion of a manifold (i.e. ‘universe’) alone imply multiplicity?

For example, for our universe, any motion would seem to require the influence of at least another disjoint surface i.e. manifold. Hence any large scale peculiar velocity of our Local Group with respect to Cosmic Background Radiation CBR would per sae seem to indicate multiplicity; that is, more than just one manifold.

Can manifolds change; or are they invariant?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , — zankaon @ 5:12 pm

No manifold concept can, in a simplified sense, be refered to as just a surface. Thus shape is irrelevant; hence change in shape is not pertinent.

Manifold can be rendered as contiiii8nuum; that is an inbetweeness quality, wherein one has a mapping of nearby elements of respective sets. Can one even have a minimum number (3) of elements required to define closeness and inbetweeness?

So can a manifold change; that is change it’s continuum? Or add additional inclusiv.e new continua vis a product space construction, giving successively a new higher dimensional space?

Would bifurcation and merging of manifolds be impossible, even of same continua? Exemplified by no merging of hot Jupiters’ with respective star, even over billion of years? Thus also consistent with no coalescence of compact objects? Also would above be compatable with no bifurcating of manifolds, as in eternal chaotic inflation, nor with merging of 3-branes, nor of patches of different manifold arising within a given manifold, nor of non-manifold suddenly appearing i.e. singularity etc.?

Thus are manifolds stable? Thus no creation nor destruction of manifolds. Hence for example, consistent with a divergent set of entangled always disjoint manifolds?

Would all of this seem consistent with concept of manifolds being truculent, and difficult to deal with? As if  they want to be left alone; perhaps because they are not capable of change i.e. always invariant?

Earliest life forms?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , — zankaon @ 3:27 pm

Recent reports suggest microbial life in ancient hydrothermal vents in rocks ~3.77- 4.28 Byrs ago – Nuvvuagittuq Supracrustal Belt (NSB). However is there the possibility of a later date infusion of fluid rock material?

For example, for Gunflint trail formation and vicinity, one has ancient shield rocks, but with later volcanic intrusion rocks, associates with the Mid-continental rift ~1 Byrs ago.

Just one billion years is an enormous geological time span, wherein almost any thing can occur. Animalia (such as sponges) might have arisen approximately 1 billion years ago; an almost inconceivable span of biological evolutionary time. 

So nature has had an enormous amount of time to try all possibilities. That is, a temporal series can be transformed into an ensemble of all spatial realized states. But is this sufficient? There also must be preservation, stability, allowing for an accumulation of mass, in regards to structural or functional elements; such as stabi!ity of amide bond for between amino acids (condensation dehydration polymer formation)?

For example, adsorption to a surface, or confined by gels, and/or a dryer environment. Perhaps nacent pre-biotic chemistry beneath a biofilm of a marine surface? Thus co-evolution of stabilizing preservation conditions, factors etc. would seem to be of equal importance.

Entanglement of past, present, and future?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , , — zankaon @ 6:04 pm

Utilizing wide-angle perception i.e. entanglement, might the past, present, and future be more inextricably intertwined than thought?

That is, in addition to our brief moment on the stage of life, might we also be part of a very large set – perhaps even divergent?

If the latter is so, then would one not have endless reoccurances of the same, and also variants, life experience (genetic and cultural) ? This would be consistent with the concept of MRT, Modified Replication Time (1).

For a divergent set, might one transform a temporal series of such life experiences into a spatial ensemble, another rendition inclusive of endless repetition of the same life experience, as well as endless variations?

For such a divergent set, then the past and future would seem to be the same; that is all inclusive in regards to such endless repetition.

Hence are we limiting our perception in considering just 1 element i.e. self, of perhaps a divergent set? Are we both finite, and also concurently, infinitesimal? A play that never ends?

Imagination – just an epi-phenomenon?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: , — zankaon @ 4:40 pm

Might imagination be more than just an apparent extra consequence of a larger more complex brain? That is, perhaps nature has discovered and selected imagination as a stable evolutionary strategy, enhancing replication for more complex cognizant species.

Likewise for more complex cognizant exo-species? Hence, by analysis, is the tradition of storytelling, and it’s sequelae i.e. literature, poetry, and media, widespread throughout the universe?
