DSSP Topics for December '01

  • If we assume that a comet comes to us by being ejected from some distant and invisible comet pool, we must conclude that the probability of comet trajectory intersecting earth's trajectory is nil. Since some comets do intersect earth trajectory, we now consider that:

    • The comet is of earth or planetary origin

    • Since comet is mostly ice, polar cap is the likely source

    • Since the gravitational change would result in change in the direction of planetary axis, polar cap would be subject to the greatest shear force

    • Nearby supernova or a planet becoming a moon can cause the change in planetary axis

    • Some of the above


DSSP Topics for November '01

  • Virtual domain is about knowledge, which, in turn, is intangible. We can think of the virtual as something that

    • Has different frequencies or vibrations
    • Has different sounds or tones
    • Has various colors
    • Is associated with i or square root of minus 1
    • Is the good ol' aether
    • Can be measured or processed only in relation (in comparison) to some other knowledge
    • All of the above

DSSP Topics for October '01

  • If dark matter is stuffed inside the galaxy to keep it from flying apart, there would be some formula to prescribe where and how much such dark matter should be placed. If dark matter exists as some kind of a glue, we conclude:

    • Galactic topologies could look like just about anything or, for simplicity, there would be only one topology [neither of which is the case]
    • There would be no need for dark matter to be invisible or it should be visible if it is dense
    • We stuff dark matter in our head because that is the only way to explain things [for now]
  • The moon:

    • Has little primary momentum
    • Has large secondary momentum
    • Has no tertiary momentum
    • All of the above
    • Some of the above

DSSP Topics for September '01

  • After a tenuous journey you arrive at the end reaches of the universe. You observe that galaxies have unusually high occurrence of supernovas -- several occurring at any one time -- and your equipment is malfunctioning. You turn back as you conclude that:

    • Radiation is too hard to handle
    • Matter does not remain stable
    • Some solar systems have near chaotic behavior and cannot organize
    • Suns are unusually large and are prone to supernovas
    • Organizing knowledge of matter is marginal
  • If you were to transition into the virtual domain, you would exist in superposition with other virtual entities and would be able to computationally relate to them and also logically move among them. How would you transition back to the real domain while avoiding materializing inside the sun, for example? [Think dimensions of independence, hyperstates, and reputing]

DSSP Topics for August '01

  • Solar system's huge central mass (sun) allows each planet to be treated as a two-body sun-planet subsystem. Each planet, then, has its own orbit time first calculated by Kepler and referred to as Keplerian orbits. Should there be a proportionately huge mass at the center of a galaxy then all solar systems would have their own Keplerian orbits. Of all galactic geometric patterns we observe, there is not a single one that would resemble Keplerian orbits. Why?

  • We can exchange momentum among bodies within a system if we can keep the combined (whole, net, total) momentum of such system constant. Will the ability to exchange momentum allow us to travel at (effectively) superluminal speed? What needs to happen first?

DSSP Topics for July '01

  • If you were on a planet in a barred galaxy, you would see a circular clustering of stars (solar systems) on each side of the planet instead of seeing a band of stars (milky way) as from within a spiral galaxy. Would the planet axis be tilted toward the solar plane? Explain why not. (If not, this means that all planets in the main bar of the galaxy have little or no seasons.)

  • The Aharonov-Bohm experiment introduces magnetic field into one of the slits of the two slit experiment with the effect that the central lobe disappears. (This is in a case of electrons because the magnetic field has no effect on light.) However, the overall energy remains the same because the entire pattern shifts or spreads. This means that:

    • All electrons pass through the two slits anyway because one-slot interference produces qualitatively different pattern
    • No electrons are deflected or rejected because the power spectrum remains the same on the other side of the slits
    • If the electron distribution spreads or shifts as a result of the magnetic field, the electron spreads in computable fashion thus allowing electrons to curl up around the core
    • All of the above

DSSP Topics for June '01

  • In the atomic environment, the position and velocity (momentum) of a particle melds into a combo of these two parameters, originally described as position-velocity uncertainty. Since the particle must be fully bounded (measured) before we can regain the particle position knowledge, this means that without measurement:

    • The particle becomes a fuzzball
    • Spatial distance becomes a variable (becomes nonlinear)
    • Spatial distance remains a constant but the velocity can be infinite
    • Spatial distance is a physical variable at all times anyway
  • In the macro environment, we may be hard pressed to admit that spatial distance is a variable. [That is, one gets funny looks if one says that spatial distance can be nonlinear.] What needs to happen before a macro object attains properties that would make its position and velocity meld?

DSSP Topics for May '01

  • For an object having a spin of 2, the rotation of this object by 180° will bring it to the same position because such object has certain symmetry; a sheet of paper (2D object) being an example. When an object has a spin of 1, then such object must be rotated 360° before it looks the same again. If an object has a spin of ½, then a rotation of 720° must be completed before the object looks the same as before the rotation. Since the electron has a spin of ½, this means that:

    • We lost the grip on reality
    • We are engaging math with real and virtual components
    • Free and moving (virtual) electron is a pair of conjugates and we need to rotate each 360° before the pair looks the same again
    • Free and moving (virtual) electron is a joined and separated pair of conjugates and we need to move around each 360° before we get to see the whole thing
    • All of the above
  • A point is a 0D object having a spin of 0 because no matter how much or how little we rotate it, it always looks the same (zero-dimensional object is spin invariant). Is there an object that has a combined spin of 0 and 2? [There are two]

DSSP Topics for April '01

  • In a spiral galaxy, two distinct symmetrically spiraling arms are observed that are composed of closely spaced solar systems. Would the relatively close distancing explain the rigidity of the galaxy since the gravitational force is then considerably stronger in the arms? If not, how does the angular momentum of each solar system contribute to the overall rigidity of a galaxy? [If you think dark matter, you'll need to appreciate the linear-angular momentum interchange. If you insist on dark matter, you'll need serious detox.] Also see Topics for July and April '00

  • In a spiral galaxy, are solar systems moving toward the center of the galaxy: [think all solar system as having 2D angular momentum]

    • Along the radius (shortest distance) thus "squeezing" the spiral?
    • Along its arms (near-tangential)?
    • Along both radial and tangential?
    • While maintaining constant radial distance -- that is, solar systems position remains the same?

    If another answer can be correct, what needs to happen in the larger context for other possible answer?

  • In a spiral galaxy, what happens to the solar systems that cannot increase or decrease their angular momentum? [think mass increase or decrease]. Can a repair action of the galaxy change its overall shape and thus move it to another hyperstate?

DSSP Topics for March '01

  • If we owe $5, it makes no difference if we pay it with one five-dollar bill or five singles. This is so obvious it may be surprising that this property of reversal (order) equivalence even has a name: the commutative property. If we have a financial question and we can talk to two people about it, the order in which we solicit answers can make quite a difference. It appears, then, that the commutative property does not hold, for discussing the question with person 'A' first and then with person 'B' will have different outcome than if we reverse the order. This is because [think relationships]:

    • Some people cannot give straight answers
    • People lie and commutative property does not apply to people
    • People are complex and have many answers to the same question
    • Your involvement leads to different interpretations and interactions: you find yourself asking different questions when you talk to the second person because different question is more relevant

DSSP Topics for February '01

  • If we release an object, it will accelerate toward ground in a predictable (computable) fashion because:

    • Object and earth are two objects and the path (trajectory) has general solution
    • An object can move in at least one independent dimension
    • An object has done this many times before
    • Spatial distance is a dependent variable
    • Force is an independent variable
    • All of the above
    • Most of the above

DSSP Topics for January '01

  • We can compute the path of almost all heavenly bodies on ahead and we can therefore say that the cosmos is formally organized. Spatial distance plays a definite role since with increasing distance (or cosmic expansion) we diminish chaos. What is the mechanism that would increase distance while maintaining formally organized systems? [If you think big bang you may want to put more emphasis on while maintaining formally organized]

  • The volcanic eruption consisting of ash is observed to spawn local thunderstorms even though there are no clouds in the sky. Lightning is a manifestation of a buildup of charge that forms even though the ash is hotter than air and despite the fact that the ground from which ash comes is at zero (ground) potential. The mechanism of electron buildup is due to:

    • Mechanical friction within the ash column similar to rubbing of a glass insulator
    • Ash column reaches high in the sky and provides a conduit for the solar wind
    • Surface of ash particulates attracts virtual electrons that become real and build up on its surface
    • None of the above
