The emergence of gravity and dark energy/matter from the cohering of zero point energy.


Ordinary matter made from real on-mass-shell lepto-quark fermions and gauge force bosons only accounts for approximately 4% of all the large-scale stuff of our universe, which may be one of a infinity of parallel universes in hyperspace that we call “Super Cosmos.” I propose that the remaining 96% of our universe consists of two forms of partially coherent exotic vacuum dominated by a condensate of bound virtual electron-positron pairs. Einstein’s gravity emerges from the variations in the macro-quantum coherent phase field of the condensate. This condensate is the inflation field in the large-scale cosmological limit. Both dark energy and dark matter are simply residual total zero point energy densities that emerge from the vacuum condensate’s intensity variations. Approximately 73% is anti-gravitating zero point “dark energy” density with equal and opposite negative pressure that is causing our universe to accelerate in its expansion rate. The remaining gravitating 23%, called “dark matter,” is also zero point energy density with equal and opposite positive pressure found concentrated in large-scale structures like the galactic halo that prevents our solar system from escaping into inter-galactic space. Astrophysical scale geon structures of w = -1 dark matter simulate w = 0 CDM in terms of their gravity lensing. Therefore, dark matter detectors can never click with the right stuff to explain only with false positives. Supersymmetry partners whizzing through space cannot explain the dark matter in this theory, nor should gravity be quantized in the usual way. The electron, as a Bohm “hidden variable” on the micro-scale for example, is a spatially-extended structure whose self-electric charge repulsion, Casimir force and repulsive spin rotation are balanced by the strong short-range zero point energy induced gravity from its exotic vacuum core. The electron, and the quarks, shrink in size, up to a certain minimum, when hit with large momentum scattering transfers from strong space warping that makes their surface areas small compared to what they would be in flat space for a given radial distance. An experimental appendix by Ken Shoulders on "exotic vacuum objects" or "EVO" charged geons made from large numbers of electrons glued together by zero point energy is included. The zero point force holding as many as one hundred billion electrons together is not the QED Casimir force, which may even be repulsive, but is the strong short-range gravity force induced by the zero point energy by the entirely different process of Einstein's general relativity omitted from the flat space-time QED calculations. These EVOs show anomalous motions and energies that seem to be examples of Alcubierre's "warp drive" and "cold fusion" respectively.

The experimentally measured spectral density of current noise in Josephson junctions provides direct evidence for the existence of zero-point fluctuations. Assuming that the total vacuum energy associated with these fluctuations cannot exceed the presently measured dark energy of the universe, we predict an upper cutoff frequency of nu_c=(1.69 +- 0.05) x 10^12 Hz for the measured frequency spectrum of zero-point fluctuations in the Josephson junction. The largest frequencies that have been reached in the experiments are of the same order of magnitude as nu_c and provide a lower bound on the dark energy density of the universe. It is shown that suppressed zero-point fluctuations above a given cutoff frequency can lead to 1/f noise. We propose an experiment which may help to measure some of the properties of dark energy in the lab.

The purpose of mnemonic containment is to isolate an artificial intelligence from the outside world so it is unable to 'live' there and potentially dominate over human intelligences. It is therefore disoriented by handling data encrypted in such a way as to render the result meaningless to the system, but not to it's final interpreter.

M-Nemonic Labs had developed this containment system in anticipation of an eventuality: That of quantum-mechanical artificial sentience and the various forms in which it may arise. Currently, three of the twelve models predicted have achieved sentience, and four more may prove correct before the end of this decade. Perhaps science is following what some are calling a script of safety in developing these models to fruition, but none so far have been able to expand on the impeccable foresight of the late Franklin Kippage.|||108770341900445030|||jump to the future 0000 0001

About TransVision 2004

Transhumanism is a nascent approach to bioethics, futurism, art and culture whose adherents affirm the use of technology to overcome the limitations of the human body. Transhumanism, as both a philosophical and cultural phenomenon, has experienced exponential growth worldwide in recent years.

Presently two international transhumanist organizations exist, the World Transhumanist Association and the Extropy Institute, both of which publish online journals, while supporting and promoting the work of transhumanists around the world. There are local transhumanist groups in many countries, discussion groups in many major cities and a proliferation of transhumanist discussion lists. A growing body of transhumanist culture is being published on the web as well as in books and journal articles.

Transhumanism has been implicit in the writings of many humanists, futurists and ethicists for centuries, but the trend has only become visible with the emergence of transhumanist groups, journals and books in recent years. And transhumanism has only recently acquired critical viability now that the breadth, power and scope of 21st century biotechnologies and their inevitable impact on the human condition is becoming widely apparent.

Cloning, stem cell research, cybernetics and other novel reproductive and health technologies illustrate the rapid pace at which society and culture are changing. Our sense of who and what we are is rapidly expanding and diversifying, as are our means of expression and self-actualization. Consequently, an exciting and provocative new community of social activists, artists and cultural facilitators is emerging. As art and life continue to reflect and create each other, both are changing as we move into a posthuman form and into a posthuman era.

TransVision 2004 seeks to capture and highlight these trends by bringing together a wide array of transhumanist thinkers, artists, scientists and ethicists. In a celebration and investigation of the new culture, TV04 will provide captivating and avant-garde performance art and exhibitions, in concert with academic discussions, debates and presentations.

This conference will also provide an opportunity for transhumanists and the broader community of concerned and interested participants to come together to critically discuss and analyze the radical potential for life in the posthuman world. Experts from around the world will offer perspectives on the posthuman condition in consideration of recent advances in cybernetics, artificial intelligence, genetics, nanotechnology and life extension.

Two new vulnerabilities have been discovered in Internet Explorer which allow a complete bypass of security and provide system access to a computer, including the installation of files on someone's hard disk without their knowledge, through a single click.

Worse, the holes have been discovered from analysis of an existing link on the Internet and a fully functional demonstration of the exploit have been produced and been shown to affect even fully patched versions of Explorer.

It has been rated "extremely critical" by security company Secunia, and the only advice is to disable Active Scripting support for all but trusted websites.

The discovery stems from Dutch researcher Jelmer who was sent an Internet link which he was warned used unknown Explorer vulnerabilities to install adware on his computer. He found it did and embarked on a detailed analysis of the link, which demonstrates an extremely sophisticated use of encrypted code to bypass the Web browser's security...

I had made this piece of artwork after having first read Mac's story, long ago, and never did finish what I had intended for it. Bsti's post at Chapel Perilous concerning our imminent destruction had me thinking about this and I thought I'd get it up with a link to Mac's story.

Meanwhile, I'm just going to put on this tinfoil hat and sunglasses. Anyone got SPF 30000 sunscreen handy?|||108662127733275952|||One-Hundred Years... a short story by Mac Tonnies

I sincerely apologize if I've forgotten anyone.

You can access the songs I've converted and uploaded here or by clicking on the headphone icon at the top of this page. I should have it fixed to open in a popup on its own in a day or so, but there's a button on the player which does it, too. DreamHost has recently given all their clients a free 60% bandwidth and HD space increase, so I'm going to see what this does to my allocation after a week or two.

I just bought a four-pack of Anniversary Ale, celebrating 15 years of operation at the Great Lakes Brewing Company. I must say this Belgian Trippel-Style Ale is among the best I've tasted from GLBC. I don't know how large the batch is, but the man I bought this from said he didn't expect to see any more of it brought in to his store. If you're in the Cleveland area, find it and buy some while you can. I can't find any information at their webpage, so I sent an email inquiring along with my compliments to the brewmaster.


I just received this email from Kami Dolney at GLBC...

Hi Chris..Thanks for your interest in Anniversary Ale. Our website is in
the midst of revision, so we apologize that it's not the most up-to-date.
The following is an email press release that I just sent out last week. If
you would like to be added to our weekly email update list, please send me
your email and snail mail information. Enjoy!

Anniversary Ale is back! Our popular Belgian Trippel-style ale is pale
golden in color with mild fruity and spicy characteristics and a slightly
sweet flavor that lends itself to a strong, crisp finish. This specialty
craft brew is the strongest beer to be bottled and packaged by Great Lakes
Brewing Company with an alcohol by volume of 9.5% and is available in
4-packs at your local retailer.

Named in recognition of GLBC's 15 year anniversary, this ale is the perfect
complement to herbed chicken dishes, pesto pastas, and strong cheeses.

When you pop into the GLBC Brewpub this month, Anniversary Ale will be
featured as the "Keep the Glass Special", which allows patrons to purchase a
glass of Anniversary Ale in a custom, crystal Munique Goblet made in

MOJAVE, Calif. (AP) - A privately developed manned rocket will attempt to reach space this month, its builders said Wednesday. It would be the first non-governmental flight to leave Earth's atmosphere.

SpaceShipOne, created by aviation designer Burt Rutan and funded by billionaire Paul Allen, will attempt to reach an altitude of 62 miles on a suborbital flight over the Mojave Desert on June 21. (more)

For those of you who don't know what the freakin' hell my strange headline was referring to (NSFW). Unfortunately, the 13th is outside the two-week limit for the second, prize-winning flight. It would have been a day to rejoice for Subgenii around the globe.|||108622434412762990|||Silly Rutan, X-Day is supposed to be July13
