VERY COOL! I didn't understand most of what you said, but am I right to infer that you think you've closed the famous 120-order-of-magnitude gap between predicted and observed vacuum energy? That would be crazy. Good luck!

p.s. I didn't know neutrons were considered dipoles! Is this because of the distance between the oppositely charged up and down quarks, or something else entirely?

" This process, naturally (mathematically speaking) relaxes the cosmological constant to the bottom of the potential." Good. But what decides the value at this minimum. As I understand it this is the real question.

You've got a main point of my investigation. "What decides the value at this minimumm" In my paper there is a final equation which specifically addresses this point. The equation relates the magnitude of the fermion energy gap to the bare cosmological constant. If in the theory of quantum gravity the ground state has a fermionic energy gap that is the same magnitude as the bare cosmological constant (this is a dynamical statement) then the "decision" is made.

Currently, I am doing this calculation. This is all I can say at the moment.

Are you doing the calculation by hand or using computers?

Hi Stephon,

Jacques Distler has a very interesting critique of your work:

It would be very interesting to hear your response to it!

Best wishes,

Thanks for pointing this out to me Michael. I read it this morning. I'll respond this weekend, but first have to rederive his technical points.

That Distler- whatta a gangsta! Ouch!

Hi Stephon, great to hear you have a new position. I want to clarify something about what I have been working on, the 'Tale of Two Cosmological Constants', I have not read your paper yet!..but found your blog whilst in CERN pages.

Our Cosmological data is based on Positive Matter, but Negative Matter, or specifically Negative Energy contributes as the value that exists between all 'ordinary' matter, the Negative Vacuum Constant is varying, but the Positive CC is fixed. Some Vacuum Lengths are always being stretched,the further away from ordinary Energy/Matter, the more the 'expanding lengths' occupy space.

What I gather from the above posting, is that you are proposing that strong interactions in and around ordinary matter, are fixed in a finite way by 'using energy made from certain lengths', so the potential is always full of ordinary matter, there is no Anti-Matter whilst there is certain Vacuum States?..yet if we move away, then the potential increase's..and therfore Anti-Matter equates to the Energy Potential, say between Galaxies that are at a far distance from one another.


Interesting, is when one equates the Einstien Field Equations at a far away location, Negative Energy has a Vacuum Solution of expansive energies only?..I s this something that you have considered?

The 'condensate' may become clear?

I have a very similar theory about the ZPF pressure where the "vacuum angle" is the Goldstone phase of the Higgs field.
Details are in my new book Super Cosmos http://amazon.com

The electrodynamic fields are used to a cool
hyperspace moment and rips the electrons from the mass to distribute matter through out the region causing a singularity which is a battle between fermions and bosons for
energy distribution, balancing where anti-graviton takes over at the core of the stars in certain singularity and causes the planets hold there position.
