What is a quantum?
Einstein’s nemesis
The quick
(‘quick’: a Christian New Testament metaphor for alive) woman’s Bible, i.e.
the New Oxford Dictionary, defines the German word ‘Quantum’ correctly as: ‘A
discrete quantity of …..’ Translated
into everyday English, ‘quantum’ means: a unit, a whole, i.e. a discrete because
decided entity, a digit and so on; a fact (consequently, per’fect/done in
itself). In German,
quantum is a metaphor for Ein’heit ≈ Ganz’heit, meaning one’ness ≈ complete’ness, interpreted
in the religious domain as meaning (the quality of) God, Allah, Brahman, the
ONE, and so on. What the
German physicist, Planck, concluded, not by observing the relative state of
the goods available in his local supermarket but from his own radiation
experiments and Einstein’s Black Body Radiation Theory was that the ground of
all becoming was discrete, i.e. composed of individual units (German,
‘Quanten’), from which he concluded that everyday (in his world, physics)
phenomena happen as on-going (actually as discretely dis-continuous)
relative, i.e. related) interactions (i.e. analogue functions) of
non-relative (hence absolute, because discrete, thus random) units ≈ quanta. Planck chose
the symbol h symbolised his quantum,
and calculated an actual value for it. He did it with maths, which, as Göedel
would later prove, and as the Buddha had already proven a couple of millennia
before, is incomplete, hence uncertain. Einstein
symbolised his constant (hence quantum) with a c. Consequently, in everyday (supermarket) terms Einstein’s famous
formula should read: e ≈ mq^{2} whereby q^{2} represents (the nuclear effect of)
the collision of two random quanta (or constants).* A quantum is
defined as: a whole or unit, i.e. as a complete entity. In relativity (hence
series (i.e. analogue) of interacting quanta) terms, a quantum happens as
ended (i.e. digitised) analogue or (observer (i.e. interactor) superimposed)
process. The Buddha attained sammasambodhi, per’fect completion when he quantised
(i.e. compressed or con’densed) his problem to a simple (@ min.entropy)
solution. Each unit
presents for contact with another unit @ random, i.e. as completely
different, therefore as unpredictable, i.e. @ max. uncertainty. That has to
be so since ‘only random events carry instruction’, or, ‘Only difference
makes (real) difference.’ In other words, quanta collide (wholly, completely
perfectly) in a relativity vacuum, thereby producing an effect (or affect)
unit or discrete moment (or quantum) of absolute realness. Though
random quantum interaction is uncertain, unpredictable (so Heisenberg),
quantum interaction, when it does happen, is always perfect, complete and
therefore absolutely certain (though it can’t be identified). Identification
(i.e. position belongs to the realm of the relative). Hence the reason why
digital communication has eliminated analogue communication. The reason the Old Buddha got so confused, and suffered accordingly, was that he experienced himself as existing in a relative, therefore dependent, analogue, therefore fuzzy world (often described as a stream, to wit, an unending process) where, obviously, no appearance as such (i.e. as an incomplete whole) had, could have an abiding core (i.e. an inherent real substance or atta/self). Only quanta (i.e. of any size or shape) are wholly self-owned (hence have a true self/atta). Prior to contact (i.e. sammasambodhi), they ‘wait’ as non-identifiable potentials (such as the Nirguna Brahman). The radical pluralism of at least one Buddhist sect indicates that at least some of his followers were on the right track. The New Buddha is a quantist. He understands and operates out of a (and THE) quantum ground, consequently experiences – but can’t cognise – only abiding, albeit random (hence absolutely free (i.e. delivered)) substances (i.e. attas or selves, i.e. as 1^{st} causes), their interactions (or relativities, hence dependent effects, produced by a stream of discrete interactions, to wit, identity traces) being non-abiding. A visit to your local supermarket and a bit of discrete observation will confirm the above. At first fleeting (i.e. non-discrete, because it actively scans) impression the supermarket (content) appears as an analogue. Discrete, i.e. quantised observation (as happens in perfect samadhi), however, reveals that its entire content together with staff, customers and their transaction means, i.e. money is quantised (i.e. unitised). Only as such can real transaction happen. * … Had Einstein not been
such a fanatic relativist and so firmly believed that his Jewish God ‘Does
not play dice’, he might not have been blinded by Nemesis and observed that
in his equation he had already unified relativity and quantum (absoluteness)
theory. For, the e ≈ m part represents the
relative (or analogue effects stream) and the c^{2} (i.e. as c x c)
represents the quantum (or absolute unit) as once-off (hence quantised)
effect that triggers the relative (stream) triggered by the collision of two c’s (or quanta). In short, e ≈ m (relativity theory) c^{2} , better h^{2}^{ }or q^{2}^{ }(quantum
theory) Rich Siddartha, the unhappy relativist |
