A new Epistemology

12) A new paradigm:
This new ingredient is not only improving the traditional physics but establishing a new paradigm.
There is a simple "fact" that traditional physics is unable to
provide theoretical calculations for neither Cabibbo nor
Weinberg angles, nor for electron fine structure constant.
Traditional physics is also impossible to reduce life
phenomena and moral phenomena to physical phenomena.
Of course, there is a simple "reason" for that because the most
important "ingredient" (or truth) for those calculations is way
beyond the scope of traditional physics. This ingredient consists of two parts:
The paradigm of 20th century --- science connotes truth. Any other claimed truth is only a proclamation.
The paradigm of 21th century --- Science is, of course, still one of the truth machine, but it cannot reach the domain of spacelessness or of timelessness which house a huge un-computable universe. The Occam's Happy Coincidence Epistemology (OHC) is the best truth tester. OHC epistemology is able to cover all universes.

Alas I fear that FU physics has run into a moral dilemma.
When faced with the question, "Why should we bother with FU physics?"
the only answer is to retreat to some moral goal of truth and knowledge.
These cannot be derived from physical laws or physical theories. I did
hear one person suggest "instinct" as a possible reason. But when one
says that a bird flies south by instinct all he really says is that he does
not know how the bird does it. The word "instinct" just becomes a catch-all
for the unknown forces of nature. What is humorous is that FU physics is
trying to uncover the unknown forces of nature but cannot even begin to do
so without calling on the unknown to give the whole pursuit meaning and
direction. The only place you will find it is on the Tao. When I say "Tao"
I refer to any one of hundreds of ancient traditions which, more often than
you might have been led to expect, agree on the rules for a "good" life:
"Good" can only be defined in terms of the Tao and only understood from within
the Tao. Good does not exist on its own in the vacuum of space. It is our
traditions, or perhaps something far beyond them, that give stuff purpose.
- A) Treat others as you want to be treated.
- B) Be kind to one another.
- C) Don't kill.
- D) Don't steal.
- E) Respect the old and teach the young.
I do not truly understand what Dr. Nord has in his mind about the word instinct. I will discuss the word instinct from my own understanding as follows:
- The validity of FU physics does not rely on instinct in any way.
No, FU physics does not call on the unknown to give the whole pursuit meaning and direction.
- FU physics is a system. Every its part is linked ( in logic, mathematics or physics) to other parts.
- FU physics is anchored (nailed down) by many known physics facts, the the Occam's happy coincidences. Any part of FU physics which is not nailed down by a known physics truth cannot be separated from the anchored portion.
- FU physics is carried (or rest on the head and shoulder of) by many established disciplines as FU provides unifications among them.
- The development of FU physics does not rely on instinct in any way neither. It needs an open-mind which is not closed by the scope of traditional physics. Of course, some insights were most helpful. The rest of the story needs a long biography to tell.
13) The truth index of FU physics:
Truth index (of FU physics) = Occam's happy index of FU physics
There are four ways to qualify Occam's happy coincidences:
- Simply better
- by uplifting
- by upbringing
- As a unifier
The followings are the Occam's happy coincidences for FU physics.
So, the Occam's happy coincidences value for FU physics (the probability for the above set (15 elements) to be a random event) is
OHC(V) = (1/2)^15
- Equation of Wonder --- simply better.
- Magic mixing procedure --- simply better.
- Prequark model is uplifted by three plain happy coincidences:
- Why are there three generations of quark? --- simply better.
- Explanation for Neutron decay --- simply better
- Why is physics universe having 11 dimensions? --- simply better
- Both proton and neutron are Turing machines --- simply better & as a unifier
- Explanation for Frictional Quantum Hall effect --- simply better
- Quark as a superstring --- simply better
- A theoretical definition for electric charge --- simply better
- A theoretical definition for mass charge --- simply better
- Unification of electric & gravitational forces (a FU version, at least) is uplifted or up brought by the followings:
- Electric charge definition
- Mass charge definition
- Unified force equation
- The uncertainty principle --- simply better
- Unifies physics & mathematics universes --- as a unifier and simply better
- Unifies physics & moral universes --- as a unifier and simply better
So, the truth index of FU physics is:
TI (FU) = 100 - OHC(V)
= 99.996948 (%)
> 99.75 (%)
