Planet Vulcan: an update

Friday, August 7, 2009 3:12 pm PDT
My article entitled Shaving Schrödinger’s Cat with Occam’s Razor previously included the following statement:

There was also the mythical planet Vulcan, originally designed to explain an anomaly in Mercury’s orbit, but which is now totally exploded (except in fiction, where it still explains Leonard Nimoy’s pointy ears).

Since the article was published, the new Star Trek movie has made it clear that Vulcan was imploded, not exploded.  I have updated the article accordingly.

Hi! My website was recently expanded and now carries 10 articles on various aspects of PQR Theory, or Pythagorean Quantum Relativity, a mathematical/physical/philosophical theory currently under development. This new theory of mine is designed to show how Quantum Mechanics and Relativity Theory can be considered as branches of Number Theory. The objective is to provide a coherent formulation of Matter, Energy, Space and Time as properties of the Natural numbers. In other words, I hope to show that the entire physical Universe (past, present and future) is governed by the relationships between the numbers 1,2,3,4, and so on.  This might at first sight seem to be rather a tall order; after all, the Universe is HUGE and full of unimaginably complex processes (such as living creatures).  But the Natural numbers are big enough to handle the task. They go on for ever, with their interrelationships growing ever more complex, and so there are plenty of ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS numbers available to define these processes. The only question is, are we up to the task? Only time will tell.
