“Science today is de facto within a conceptual framework
that is defined by a big bang theory. It is misleading us.”

by Bruce E. Camber

The Scientific Method: There was an argument about the title. The word, de facto, is for general concurrence. Yet, might it be better if science today is also required to grasp what is de jure or by law? The word, de facto, is “in fact” or “in effect” or actual practice. Within our model, continuity-symmetry-harmony define infinity and pi. It amounts to a conceptual counterpoint to de facto. Those three are inherently “de jure” or “by law” or “by right.” As a consequence, the scientific method may be logically required that as a result of “hypothesizing, testing, getting results, analyzing and synthesizing,” it also must explain how it is an extension of those natural laws inherent within continuity-symmetry-harmony.

Currently the focus of our academics has been dominated by big bang theories, especially within the scientific and scholarly communities. There is no law or right for big bang theories to be the abiding belief of the world’s scientific community when a more-rules based understanding of reality in fact appears to work better. Those who hold onto such a theory ignore rules that work in order to substitute de facto “rules” that ultimately do not. Although their substitutions are many, the primary one is Alan Guth’s inflation and the theoretical inflaton. I believe, albeit quite imaginative, that untested hypotheses will forever remain within an ever-growing domain of fantasy science.

Simple math, simple geometry, and simple logic work better.*

January 2023: For over eleven years I have asked scholars if continuity-symmetry-harmony are finite or infinite. Since 1972, unlike most, I have assumed the three are both finite and infinite.[1] If infinity (the infinite) is defined as continuity-symmetry-harmony, vestiges of all three dominate aspects of the finite. The three define pi. The three define aspects of space-and-time and all of the dimensionless constants. The finite side of the equation is quantitative and the infinite side of the equation is qualitative. It is not difficult. It tells us that the scientific method involves infinity and its inherent boundary conditions and parameters. There are over 30 presuppositions that opened these channels. Those all started with a few assumptions. More recently, these are becoming a checklist of what is necessary, de jure, to start and grow our universe.

The Big Bang does not qualify. There is no place for the Planck base units or their equivalent (Stoney units or ISO units), or for pi(π). There really is also no place or for the dimensionless constants or a finite-infinite relation. Big Bang theories ignore too many of the fundamentals of history and logic of scholarship.[2]

All research, every scholar who is in search of a deeper truth, engages our dimensionless constants and inherent presuppositions. Perhaps not articulated, these constants are part of our logic-and-thought structure and are necessarily always part of any research program. That’s de jure. If believed and accepted, research will never be quite the same because it will always be measured in light of pi and the other dimensionless constants and continuity-symmetry-harmony.

Thank you. -BEC

There may not be many because all these points already have pages within this website.

[*] Simple is better than complex. We’ve made it all too complex. In 1988, Richard Feynman asks, “What do you care what other people think?” The stakes are just too high. In a 1955 public address, The Value of Science, at the National Academy of Sciences, he said, “Throughout all the ages of our past, people have tried to fathom the meaning of life. They have realized that if some direction or meaning could be given to our actions, great human forces would be unleashed. The dream is to find the open channel.”

Come on. Let’s explore a few open channels.

  1. The 202 base-2 notations constitute an open channel.
  2. The faces of the finite and infinite defined by pi constitute an open channel.
  3. Yes, continuity-symmetry-harmony constitute an open channel.

Like fantasy football, fantasy science can be fun, but it doesn’t readily solve problems.

[1] Finite and infinite. Of course, David Hilbert, Kurt Gödel,  E.P. Wigner, or Max Tegmark do not the final words or concepts when it comes to infinity, and a finite-infinite relation. We’ve got a long way to go. First, it needs to be in the spotlight as an active investigation. Ignore the hocus-pocus. The pages around continuity-symmetry-harmony, I believe, are keys to our sanity. If the universe is fundamentally ordered, relational, and profoundly dynamic, let’s have some fun. Let’s break loose of all our stridency, know-it-all attitudes, and let everyone breath a bit more easily. Let’s harden up all the egg shells so we begin to grasp the depth and meaning of infinitesimal spheres!

[2] History, logic, and traditions of scholarship. In the 20 January 2023 issue of Quanta Magazine, journalist Rebecca Boyle’s lead story, “Standard Model of Cosmology Survives a Telescope’s Findings,” reports on the results coming in from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Optimistically Boyle says, “The earliest of those confirmed galaxies shed its light 330 million years after the Big Bang, making it the new record-holder for the earliest known structure in the universe… How could stars ignite inside superheated clouds of gas so soon after the Big Bang? How could they hastily weave themselves into such huge gravitationally bound structures?”

The answer to her first question is that were no “super-heated clouds” and to her second question, “In the first second, space-time has already expanded to a size beyond our solar system.”

Cosmological constant: In our model of the Quiet Expansion, there is immediately a cosmological constant that is currently calculated in the range of 539.116 tredecillion planckspheres per second (Max Planck, 1899) and at about 4605 tredecillion spheres per second (using George Stoney’s calculations from 1874). The ISO has been invited to introduce a more recent calculation based on their current standards.

That first second is within Notation-143 using base-2 notation. It is possible to imagine that within the the first 330 million years stars would readily evolve from a very smooth, homogenous start.

Big Bang theories have truncated our creativity.

9:48 PM · Jan 6, 2023 @maxdkozlov Take some guesses, Max. What if our basics are not basic enough and our foundations are not based on first principles but de facto assumptions? What if an exponential universe and we de facto still think linearly? We’re trying to break out:
