Spring-And-Loop Theory:

Speaking of assumptions...

In researching and thinking about the subject of this paper, Spring-And-Loop Theory hit a wall early on.

Spring-And-Loop Theory had imagined that tEmP theories were composed of bad assumptions. That Spring-And-Loop Theory would detail each bad assumption and propose a better assumption in its place.

The problem? tEmP theories don't document their assumptions.

We draw conclusions and make judgments based
on uncertain and incomplete information,
and we conclude, when we're done analyzing the
patterns, that our "picture" is clear and accurate.
But is it?

- Leonard Mlodinow


To make or not to make them

Scientists are taught to record what they see.

And to assume nothing.

Good advice, in experimental work. Horrendous advice, in theories.

Pseudoscience is almost always recognizable from a distance, and easy to confirm on close examination. Science is, however, not immune from hubris, and bad science can be tougher to spot. Those of us who make a living from science must display scientific integrity. We must constantly test our assumptions and fight the siren song of consensus when our data tells us to be contrarian.
- K. Lee Lerner


Physics theories parties
Political parties theories

In reality, scientists endorse theories.

Researchers want research bucks. To purchase homes in the suburbs. This mandates new research.

Research, conditionally financed on expressed loyalty to a theory, lead to tests.

The results of these mandated experiments either confirm a theory, thus "proving it", or bring "new discovery" plaudits. tEmP theorists never get negative results.

For physicists, not contradicting yourself is already considered a success. Whether the results have anything to do with reality is considered a minor issue. - Alexander Unzicker


"Search text not found"

Have you found them? Spring-And-Loop Theory hasn't either.

No assumptions are considered by tEmP theorists today.

See for yourself -- scan Wiki's Standard Model page for "assumption", "assume", etc.*

Oh, they might tout an assumption like "Relativity says nothing travels faster than the speed of light", but this is a throw-away. Intended to differentiate one worthless theory from the hundreds (or thousands) of other worthless ones.

As soon as something is measured to travel faster than light, it is duly noted and then...back to polishing your diploma.


AWOL: Fundamental assumptions

The military may not be everybody's idea of the perfect system, but they get one thing right: loyalty.

tEmP theories, every physicist's idea of the best theories, get one thing wrong: loyalty to the principles of science.

Never expect loyalty from a person
that can't give you honesty.

- Surgeo Bell


It turns out    
this one omission    
is more than enough    
to perpetuate their scam.    

For a hundred years.    

And counting.    


It started innocently enough

When relativity came out, few understood it.

Years later...few understand it.

But everyone loves it!


Blind adoration kills

So how is it that physicists came to love something most of them didn't understand?

By no one ever asking that question.

Well then why did no one ever ask it?

It is the hallmark of an educated person
to remain skeptical of accepted views and
to regard even the most popular beliefs
as working assumptions.

- Spencer Rathus


Je ne comprend pas

Physics has a history.

From the beginning of time, man has tried to understand his world.

Man is a thinking animal, after all. Allegedly.

The process of thinking is a way of analyzing
and making the right assumption at the right
moment in life.

- Jerril Thomas Abraham


The problem is

Man has gathered facts for centuries.

Like a kid on a beach with a bucket,
man has filled a lot of pails.

These days those cans are full of plastic.

Broken, dirty, smelly plastic.


Val(Garbage) .GT. Val(Answers)

Sea birds fill their tummies with plastic because we haven't found a way to profit from cleaning up the oceans.

Physicists today fill their minds with trash because the 1% haven't found a way to profit from cleaning up physics.

In fact, such knowledge would be a total disaster. But not to worry, it's being avoided by all means available.

All schools, all colleges have two great functions:
to confer and to conceal valuable knowledge.

- Mark Twain

How science be doing stuff today

"Oh, look, a rock."
"Stick it in the bucket."
"It won't fit."
"Ok, throw it away."

tEmP step #1 - Gather facts while paid to do so.

tEmP step #2 - Question nothing.

tEmP steps #3, 4 & 5 - Speculate a whole bunch at the end, while complimenting some existing broken theory and hinting (the stronger the better) that you may have figured out some long standing problem.

tEmP step #6 - Cash in.

tEmP step #7 - Repeat.

It can't be this bad

Things are in fact much worse than this.

The science media today is more like a continuous fetish orgy.

New discovery, by press release.

Dogmatic repetition helps the gibberish go down.

  Often when you go into a relationship with [physics],
you have to justify why you like [physics]. You only see
what you want to see and you deny there are things
you don't like about [physics]. You lie to yourself just        
to make yourself right. Then you make assumptions,
and one of the assumptions is "My love for [physics]
will change [physics]." But this is not true.
Your love will not change [physics].

- Miguel Ruiz

Identifying the fetid rotting putrid flaws
in tEmP theories will change physics.

- Spring-And-Loop Theory


Quickly, Duncan, the assumptions**

Unlike tEmP theories, Spring-And-Loop Theory makes assumptions.
(Don't worry, it won't take long to run through them.)

#1 - everything is energy

#2 - matter (i.e. protons) is lower in energy than space
(i.e. the ether, or springs)

#3 - the ether vibrates at the speed of light

#4 - lower energy protons dampen spring energy

And...that's it?

Unlike tEmP theories, Spring-And-Loop Theory assumptions are on the table.

So let's dive in and rip them to shreds!


A discussion between J.B.S. Haldane and a friend began to take a predictable turn.  The friend said with a sigh, "It's no use going on.  I know what you will say next, and I know what you will do next."
The distinguished scientist promptly sat down on the floor, turned two back somersaults, and returned to his seat.  "That's to prove that you're not always right."

The irresistible force

Good luck with assumption #1. It is probably the most universally understood statement about the universe. Sages past and present have agreed on little but this.

Calculations by none other than Max Planck and Albert Einstein have derived the underpinnings of this basis as well.

Score 1 for Spring-And-Loop Theory.

Mass versus energy

The relative magnitude of mass, and energy, is more of a mind-bender.

Matter is hard, and provides resistance.

Flames yield to fingers.      

How can whisps defeat mountains?

Yield and overcome.
- Tao Te Ching

Assumption #2 cuts to the heart of modern physics, revealing one of its greatest weaknesses -- that there is no "matter" as such.

"The only thing which can be directly
perceived by the senses is force."

- James Clerk Maxwell


Chemistry to the rescue

The structural theory is of extreme simplicity. It assumes
that the molecule is held together by links between one
atom and the next: that every kind of atom can form a
definite small number of such links: that these can be single, double or triple: that the groups may take up any position possible by rotation round the line of a single but not round that of a double link: finally that with all the elements of the first short period of the periodic table, and with many others as well, the angles between the valencies are approximately those formed by joining the centre of a regular tetrahedron to its angular points. No assumption whatever is made as to the mechanism of the linkage. Through the whole development of organic chemistry this theory has always proved capable of providing a different structure for every different compound that can be isolated.
- Nevil Sidgwick

In chemistry, the progression is from solids to liquids to gases.

Add heat, i.e. energy, and you move to the right.

If one continues to heat the gas, the particles just keep spreading out.
In fact, with enough energy, they will bust out of any container.

Matter plus enough energy becomes pure energy. (Or returns to it.)

Singe another one for Spring-And-Loop Theory.

tEmP theories need a makeover

Assumption #3 -- the ether vibrates at the speed of light -- is the log jammer.

Ask a thousand physicists if there is an ether, and you get a single dogmatic answer. Based on a couple of guys trying to find it, a hundred years ago, and failing (a couple of times). Proving nothing at all.

The 'normal' scientist, as Kuhn describes him,
is a person one ought to be sorry for. He has
been taught in a dogmatic spirit: he is a victim
of indoctrination. I can only say that I see a very great danger in it and in the possibility of its becoming normal; a danger to science and, indeed, to our civilization.

- Karl Popper
tEmP theories score an own goal.


It's hinged on this all along

Four assumptions -- a mere twenty-four words -- and yet tEmP theorists are backed into a corner. Dunced, and muted. And all because of gravity:

#4 - lower energy protons dampen spring energy

Six words redefine physics. Whether tEmP theorists see it, or hide it.

Spring-And-Loop Theory has run the table.

New ideas emerge when you question the assumptions upon which a problem is based.
- Shane Snow



If only one side scores, does that count as a shutout?

The answer is of no consequence.

Incumbent theorists won't vote themselves out of office.

tEmP theorists are merely mouthpieces for the 1%.

There hasn't been a backbone exhumed in decades.


A science is said to be useful if its development
tends to accentuate the existing inequalities in the
distribution of wealth, or more directly promotes
the destruction of human life.

- G. H. Hardy

Such a solitary word

Others can't make us accountable.

Accountability rarely pays the bills by itself.

And accountability is not taught in accounting.

Accountability. Either one has it or one doesn't.

The man of science who cannot formulate a hypothesis is only an accountant of phenomena.
- Pierre Lecomte du Nouy,
"The Road To Reason"          


Then why bother?

In every aspect of twenty-first century life, the battle lines are the same.

Isolated voices expressing truth.

opposed by

a cacophony of freaks  
belching falsehoods.  


Although in theory physicists realize that their conclusions are not certainly true, this does not really sink into their consciousness. They act as if science were indisputably true, and what's more, as if only science were true. Any information obtained other than by the scientific method, although it may be true, the scientists will call 'unscientific', using this word as a smear word, by bringing in the connotation from its original Greek meaning, to imply that the information is false, or at any rate slightly phony. - Anthony Standen

No we can't

Facts and fictions don't get along.

Those obsessed with money, power and control never change
when presented with boatloads of truth.

Salvation comes from within, or not at all.

Everything is becoming science fiction.
From the margins of an almost invisible
literature has sprung the
reality fantasy
of the 20th century.
- J. G. Ballard

Everything is becoming delusional.



This paper is shocking.

To no theorist more than Spring-And-Loop Theory's.

Four divided by zero is undefined.

tEmP theories are worse than Spring-And-Loop Theory,
by a factor of undefined.

It doesn't compute, and never will.

The flaws with laws

Where would physics be without laws?

"The three laws of thermodynamics"

"The law of action and reaction"

Or my personal favorite: Boyle's law

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.*** - Albert Einstein


The fetishes of physicists

People in general (and physicists are nothing if not human) want things buttoned down.

"Give me boundaries.  Limits. Absolutes!"

"Even better, chisel  
it into bedrock."  

"Granitize it, post haste!"

What if I say "No!"?

Black Friday is not a great time to study human willpower.

Fortunately, the Running of the Bulls happens just once a year.
And is entirely voluntary.

Going to pieces is the most human of human laws.

Knowledge comes by taking things apart; analysis. Wisdom comes by putting things together.
- John Morrison


Doubt: A better way

The greatest inhumanity happens -- every time -- when we buy into someone else's belief pedalling.

"Physics said it, and I believe it,
and that settles it for me."

It is tremendously ironic that no group buys into baloney with more vigor and confidence than physicists.

Do or die

Making assumptions is a matter of life or death.

Just ask a mother who's child died from swallowing the dentist's "cavity preventing" fluoride gel.

She assumed everything was safe, and that assumption cost her child its life.

Anyone who thinks science is trying to make human life easier or more pleasant is utterly mistaken.
- Albert Einstein

This should give pause on a number of levels.


It was ever thus

We see a gazelle slaughtered by a cheetah and we understand right away.

We take our first drink of booze  
and invite fallacious assumptions  
to ride shotgun on our stagecoach.  

Assumptions run roughshod over our lives.

But we'd rather tweet a selfie.


Groups are WMD

Physics can be simple.

Unification is a handful of words away.

What are you waiting for?


The best assumption

Fear is.

When you have it, it has you.

Few are able to perceive clearly when fear-enshrouded.

If the human race ever stops acting on the basis
of what it thinks it knows, paralyzed by fear that
its knowledge may be wrong, then Homo sapiens
will be making its application for membership
in the dinosaur club.

- Henry Davis, "To Plant A Seed"

Back to square one

Your past assumptions are absolved.

Your future assumptions matter.

Take a deep breath...and step out on your own.

The branch will hold

It always does.

Thomas Edison's method was inefficient in the extreme, for an immense ground had to be covered to get anything at all unless blind chance intervened and at first I was almost a sorry witness of his doings, knowing that just a little theory and calculation would've saved him ninety per cent of the labor. But he had a veritable contempt for book learning and mathematical knowledge, trusting himself entirely to his inventor's instinct and practical American sense. In view of this, the truly prodigious amount of his actual accomplishments is little short of a miracle.
- Nikola Tesla





* - What pass for assumptions in the Standard Model are more like places where it has painted itself into a corner.

For example, "A black hole is a singularity." In private everyone admits this is nonsense, but so it stands.

Other bits of nonsense? "Electrons,
quarks and photons are point particles." Again, this is always conceded to be an absurd notion. But it is foundational to what the Standard Model's quantum mechanics calculates about atoms.

The Planck scale was first realized in the year 1900 yet the Standard Model sticks with a non-Planck scale 116 years later.

The Standard Model is a model in name only.

And as "standard" as smoking cigarettes was in the 1960s.


** - Spring-And-Loop Theory channelling Peter O'Toole in "King Ralph".



As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality,
they are not certain; and as far as they are certain,
they do not refer to reality.
- Albert Einstein

This quote isn't correct****, but it's noteworthy Einstein thought this way.

He was full of doubt, even five years after publishing General Relativity (and fifteen years after publishing Special Relativity) when he gave
his famous ether talk.

Clearly, neither of these was the answer he was looking for.

Ultimately this reflects how useless mathematics is for determining new principles of physics.

In addition, the fact everyone thinks he was a giant among men is alarmingly illustrative of how tEmP theories got where they are today.

Trust, based on nothing.

As Jim Rohn warned, beware of "happy hope".

You'll lemming yourself,  
yet enjoy the fall.  


**** - The laws of mathematics are without fault. The interpretations of how nature works -- commonly called physics -- can easily be. tEmP theories, given their horrendous and/or non-existent assumptions, have no chance of being certain about anything. But "more re$earch is needed."
