bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz introduces new theories on the composition of Dark Matter. Can it consist of sub-atomic junk or zombie particles discarded by a standard resonator as dissonant or non-compliant?

Thursday. October 20, 2016

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz adds language in Version 1 to describe dark matter as those basic forms of matter "such as hadrons and leptons (large and small subatomic particles) that happen to be odd-sized and abnormal in some ways and therefore" do not resonate with the normal constants of mass that make everything functionally synchronized and synergistic as the quantum theory Planck constants do. In the same paragraph we inserted: "any odd-sized quarks could not form hadrons, weird electrons would not be able to orbit atomic nuclei, photons would not be released,..." In the next paragraph where we stated that "Our concept of molecular resonance, however, focuses on resonance of subatomic particles at a lower level" we followed with ". Perhaps a more definitive name would be “sub-atomic-molecular resonance”, which may be abbreviated as SAM resonance." We appreciate the advice of a student at Princeton for pointing out that based on the title of the article, the focus appeared to be on "molecular" resonance and not "subatomic" resonance. Even in the original version, however there was language indicating a focus on "sub-atomic molecular" resonance intending to mean both subatomic and molecular resonance. Our policy is not to identify advisors or contributors unless they specifically grant permission. This edition is considered to be Version 1, the original being Version 0.

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 2 changes the sub-title to "A New Theory on Sub-Atomic-Molecular Resonance " by inserting "Sub-Atomic-". This follows the main title "Dark Matter:". He also coined the term Aquantic which he defined following the sentence "The dissonant matter we detect by the effects of gravity is to be what we call dark matter." with "We may also describe it as aquantic meaning that it cannot be quantized in the normal way." He also inserted this new term in this sentence: "We propose that a dark photon would need to be derived from the energy of another unstable or aquantic electron or other types of particles than those included in our standard constants. " In the section on Evolution of Molecular Resonance Ray Cruz added the sentence "Mammals have an average species lifespan of about one million years, which is about the extent of our particular species." He also changed the phrase "Molecular resonance" to "SAM resonance" in a subsequent paragraph. Following the phrase "Or the ratio of the force of gravity with the energy of vacuum space may be a better factor in determining resonance values for different particles - the resonator function" he added the formula "R = G/E meaning: Resonator = Gravity / Energy." New sentences "Even without multiverse models this formula of synergy and resonance would still apply. In other words, our universe is tuned to build atoms and molecules that are based on the most resonant and efficient particles available." were added to the same paragraph. In the section on Research Studies Opportunities this question was added: How can we identify aquantic particles?

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 3concludes the section of Theory of Everything with the bold statement: "Out of the darkness comes the light. Resonance determines the speed of light and all measures of quanta. Amen."

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 4 adds a new graphic to present the resonator formula preceded by this explanation: "This diagram shows a simple portrayal of this formula as the resonator container box with E and G serving as the main forces that shape both luminous matter and dark matter within space:" Click on the above link to see this graphic.

Sunday. October 30, 2016

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 5 adds a new paragraph to the section Evolution of Molecular Resonance: "Resonance can also be a factor in creating or marshalling the force behind the initial inflation of the universe. Separating resonating forms of particles from others in the primal disorganized state of the big bang automatically enables electromagnetic forces to interact and attract or repel other particles based on their properties. This also separates resonating particles from non-resonating dark particles. End result: explosively expanding matter and space!"

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 6 introduces a new concept on the shape and structure of the dark matter halo to this paper: Dark Matter Halo - Dark 3D Rainbow "The shape of dark matter in a galaxy has been generally described as an ellipsoidal globe or halo that surrounds the galactic disk or in some models may be oriented perpendicular to the disk. A study by Law and colleagues Majewski and Johnston in 2009 suggested the shape of a squashed beach ball, a triaxial shape with different lengths for each axis. If dark matter consists of multiple types of particles with different masses, as we propose, there may also be a radial distribution of particles within the halo, based on mass. The simplest model would place the heavier particles nearest to the galactic core, which normally contains a black hole. Think of this arrangement sort of like a rainbow, a dark rainbow, if you will. This model may also help to explain how the merging of two galaxies and their dark haloes may trigger a reshaping of each halo since the radial location of heavier and lighter particles within each would need to be redistributed in the complex mixture of the merging haloes. "

bullet Dark Matter re-examined by new theories.  Ray Cruz in Version 7 expounds on a new concept on the shape and structure of the dark matter halo to this paper adding that The search for WIMPs has also utilized tools such as the Large Underground Xenon experiment (LUX) and the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS), for example. ... Even if WIMPs or other single particle candidates are discovered deep underground our earth’s surface, there is still a logical distance to jump to the conclusion that any of these is the only substance that comprises dark matter in our galaxy and universe. Regarding the Dark Matter Rainbow domain more details were added: An ellipsoidal globular shape also indicates some type of polarization possibly due to electromagnetic forces. If the polarity is perpendicular to the plane of the visible disk, this would suggest an interaction of electromagnetic forces between the visible and invisible masses. In the section on evolution he expounded: There is not necessarily a purpose or goal for intelligent life to evolve in our universe, and we already know that our sun will snuff out in a few billion years, and with it goes our species. Aside from science fiction, there is no reasonable expectation for human migration beyond our solar system. This is not grim, it is just an awakening to enjoy what we have in peace and harmony with our neighbors, human and otherwise, as long as we have it. Our home is a sweet, hospitable solar system, and it is the only home we will ever have. Regarding Research Opportunities a sentence was modified as such: Can we, for example, send projectiles or focus telescopic tools towards places in our galaxy where we expect dark matter halos to exist at the fringes of luminous matter to sense the presence of particles and measure their masses based on impacts on a sensitive device? In the section of Dark Matter Halo - Dark 3D Rainbow a new paragraph was added: " Our theory also expounds on the distribution of dark matter to include concentrations of dark matter in all parts of luminous matter concentrations including the food we eat, the water we drink, and all parts of our bodies, brains and guts. Wherever there is luminous matter there is also dark matter. The mass of our planet includes the masses of every animate body and inanimate rock, mountain or sea. At the molecular level, the resonator continues to select the most effective particles to resonate with all available particles in the quest to build functional molecules. Every particle collision experiment includes dark matter, although we have not yet deliberately deployed methods to analyze the effect of dark matter in these experiments. The big resonator may have been selected eons ago, but the vital act of selecting resonating particles in everyday life is a continuous process at every level of molecular activity and living chemistry. Molecular SAM Resonation is an ongoing process that never ends. "

bullet Super-Entropy identified as the driving force of creation.  Entropy begets form on occasion, if lucky. Chaotic Big Bang only after millions of years arranging a few messy fragments into molecular clusters. The exception, not the rule. The rule remains dark. Dark matter. Dark entropy. Helping this formation to violate the stochastic rule of entropy are classes of potential subatomic particles. Energy motivated, prodded by the tension derived from the tug-of-war between gravity and expanding space: The resonator. On rare occasions a few particles resonate with one another to form a molecule, based on the governing classes.

Wildfires Threaten - Damage Astronomical Observatories

bullet In 2003, the Palomar Observatory, near San Diego, was threatened by wildfires and, under the auspices of NASA, was forced to close two observatory dome shutters in order to protect the Hale 200-inch telescope from airborne smoke and ash.
bullet In the same year, bushfires in January destroyed more than $40 million worth of facilities and equipment at the Mt. Stromlo Observatory in Australia, including five telescopes, workshops, an important heritage building and seven houses.
bullet A year later, 2004, in Safford, Arizona, a mountainside wildfire was within a quarter-mile of a $200 million mountaintop observatory, the Mount Graham International Observatory. Two fires were burning on the southern and western sides of the mountain and also threatened the Mount Graham communities of Columbine and Turkey Flat. The observatory's protection, including a sprinkler system, had been reinforced by strengthened protection lines and prescribed burns. Home to some of the world's most powerful telescopes, the observatory encompasses eight buildings and 8 1/2 acres of pine forest on Mount Graham's 10,470-foot Emerald Peak. Although its metal structures should withstand the flames, officials said smoke and heat could damage delicate instruments.
bullet Now in 2005, in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson, Arizona, the Fred L. Whipple Observatory was threatened within a mile of the 20,000-plus acre wildfire that burned for more than 12 days. A blessing of rain helped to extinguish the conflagration before it damaged the approximately $100 million dollars worth of facilities and equipment located at the observatory, operated jointly by the Smithsonian Institute and the University of Arizona. It was recently upgraded with a new 6.5-meter mirror and a suite of powerful instruments, including the Megacam imager and Hectospec and Hectochelle spectrographs. A number of other telescopes share the Mount Hopkins site with the MMT. The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) is a joint collaboration between the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the Harvard College Observatory.
bullet Also in 2005, several wildfires threatened the University of Texas McDonald Observatory in the Davis Mountains, which motivated local authorities to take protective steps in reducing fuels, such as high grass, brush and trees. Crews also put in firebreaks to stop the spread of an approaching fire and a new fire escape road was also constructed with the help of the Texas Fire Service.
bullet The Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles, California, was threatened by wildfires several times in recent years including 2007, 2017 and 2018 (pictured in Mountain Crest Lithoshield). Evacuations were executed but no facilities were damaged in these incidents.
bullet Not far from Los Angeles, the Mt. Wilson Observatory was also threatened by wildfires and evacuated in 2009 and 2017. More than two dozen antenna towers cluster on the peak of Mt. Wilson. Hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of communications equipment are located in the area, including federal and county facilities used for emergency communications, commercial television facilities and radio transmitters. Damage to the communications towers could disrupt cellphones, television and radios, as well as interrupt some communications for emergency responders. Of historical significance, in 1929, Edwin Hubble used Mt. Wilson’s 100-inch telescope, which turned 100 years old in 2017, to discover that the universe was expanding.
bullet Ten years after the destructive Mt. Stromlo Observatory fire of 2003, in 2013 the Siding Spring Observatory in Australia's Warrumbungle National Park survived a bushfire that overran a portion of the observatory compound. Some support facilities and staff homes were destroyed. Siding Spring is the largest optical observatory in Australia and a major infrared observatory that is home to 10 operating telescopes run by international researchers.
bullet National Security Risk - We need to protect our eyes to the stars. This is not a complete list of related incidents possibly increasing with climate change. Many other valuable observatories as well as communications towers for commercial and scientific networks in mountainous areas throughout the United States and other parts of the world have also been threatened by wildfires or damaged nearly every year. To protect so many valuable observatories, as well as critical communications towers and scientific resources located in mountainous areas, the same expertise that is used to safely carry astronauts back and forth through our atmosphere at tremendous speeds and temperatures almost routinely, can be applied to developing a shield, such as our proposed Wildfire Lithoshield system. As our climate changes and Diablo winds increase, we need a comprehensive wildfire shield to protect our homes and other precious structures from wildfires every year. NASA, which currently provides satellite views of wildfires and smoke, clearly may have a principal interest in this agenda, both in regards to assets to protect, as well as the needed scientific and engineering knowhow. It may take some political leadership to move the priority for this agenda ahead of landing more people on the moon or populating Mars, or to sandwich it in among other goals and objectives somehow.
