‘Spooky Action at a Distance’ Observed in Two Macro-Scale Diamonds

Article by William Brown, Biophysicist, Resonance Science Foundation Research Scientist 

What would you call two people wrapped up in a phone call? Phonon entanglement. This facetious example is actually very analogous to what has been accomplished in a quantum experiment involving two macroscopic (observable to the naked eye) sized diamonds. In this experiment, molecular assemblies seemed to be strongly interrelated between the two diamonds despite being separated by a sizable space. This instantaneous interaction at a distance, in which the quantum state of two particles – or in this case 1016 atoms – appear to be linked together is referred to as entanglement.

Normally this requires extremely cold temperatures (a few degrees above absolute zero), or special containment systems to keep the particles from interacting with the environment. But diamonds have several characteristics that obviate the need for these extreme conditions. Because of the rigid...

Alien Life Could Thrive in the Clouds of Failed Stars

biophysics science news Feb 06, 2016

There’s an abundant new swath of cosmic real estate that life could call home—and the views would be spectacular. Floating out by themselves in the Milky Way galaxy are perhaps a billion cold brown dwarfs, objects many times as massive as Jupiter but not big enough to ignite as a star. According to a new study, layers of their upper atmospheres sit at temperatures and pressures resembling those on Earth, and could host microbes that surf on thermal updrafts.

Golden Ratio Stars

By Dr. Amira Val Baker, Resonance Science Foundation Astrophysicsist

The enigmatic pulsating variable stars have just become more intriguing – as astronomers find them to be pulsating at the Golden ratio!

Any star that varies in brightness – whether on timescale of seconds or years – falls into the category of variable stars, where the variability can be due to changes in stellar luminosity, mass, size or position. While extrinsic variables are simply due to the eclipsing of the source by another source such as a star or planet, intrinsic variables change in brightness due to underlying physical mechanisms such as pulsations and/or eruptions. The pulsating variable stars shrink and swell in size, thus varying their intrinsic luminosity and in effect pulsating through continuous contraction and expansion. Cepheid variables, the most famous of the pulsating variables, are well known and much loved by astronomers for their use in the measurement of intergalactic...

The Geometry of Quantum Gravity

faculty article Oct 29, 2014
Early Studies

My journey to the leading edge of Modern Physics and Quantum Gravity began when I was a teenager.

I had discovered that the human body had an energetic field. While the primary aspects and functionality of this field were explored in detail by a variety of cultural and spiritual traditions around the world, I realized it was entirely missing from the current scientific framework, and absent from my High School education.

Rather casting doubt on my experiences, this absence prompted my deeper investigation. I began to notice that many of the mysteries in sciences from biology to geology, astronomy to chemistry, had fundamental patterns that were similar, and also showed up in metaphysical studies of the “Ether” throughout the ages.

Like a detective sensing a secret waiting to be revealed, I decided to dive into a study of modern physics to see if there were any studies that could explain these patterns.

I began with a study of the macrocosmic world through...

Mach’s Principle and Gödel’s Rotating Universe

faculty article Oct 21, 2014

by William Brown, Resonance Science Foundation Research Scientist

The question of the nature of absolute and relative frames of space, time, and motion forms the basis of Newton’s work in The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, as the opening discussion of the book. This question is also relevant to Einstein’s theories of motion occurring at or close to the speed of light, hence the appellation relative in relativity theory. As we have seen, Newton described a fundamentally absolute frame of space and time in which an object’s motion was absolute, or independent of its orientation relative to other objects.

Newton illustrated this concept in the Principia with an example of a bucket filled with water and suspended by a rope from the ceiling. If the rope were to be turned until it was sufficiently twisted, and then released, the rapid spinning motion of the bucket would impart to the water a centrifugal force that would cause it to pull away from the...
