 2017-01-03 Piotr GrabowskiPedagogical University of Krakow Dear Mr&Ms.I don't know how can I start, then i said: Wittgenstein in TLP, said that time is work of chronometer.I thought that this could be expressed by formula.I propose this formula below:P/M = Tw   - This is time in which object "a" going way "z". It is simple and i said that is time of way.ButIf we want to have formula for time understood as working chronometer, we need minimum two objects, then: amp((P1/M1) + (P2/M2)) = TcIn variables:amp(x1/m1+...x2/m2+...xn/mn)/mo= TcDictionary:P - speed of objectM- metersamp - amplitudeTw - Time of way ex. car go in road in 40 sec.Tc - Time understood as chronometer ex. 1 sec or quantum of actionsx - speed of objectm - distancemo - distance between objectsConfiguration is rearrengment objects in space. When appear move, then time appear too, but to came time,we need space, object and move. "Move" came when object change his position in space under the influence of power.With regards and hope for comments,P. A. Grabowski Permanent link: https://philpapers.org/post/25534 Reply

 2017-01-03 Piotr GrabowskiPedagogical University of Krakow Dear Ms.&Mr.On my own calculate and experiments power of gravitation is expressed by:M+M/2M - 5% = 2,5%M + 2,5%M = PG Dictionary:M - MassPG - Power of gravitation.It is not dynamic power but power of attraction.I stand below, following hypothesis:The force of gravity is 2.5% by weight.100 kg can achieved with power 2.5 kgN100 kg attracts with 2.5 kgNWhen the force is balanced because of the distance, the body gravitate to each other as long as they are rotated.As a result of fission  atom arises 2.5% of its mass calculated for example, in kgNTo implosion followed the mass that is reduced by fission would begin to attract, but with the outbreak of falling apart. As a result of the implosion would yield more energy than the result of cleavage.The star which burns up and make the implosion, turns into a supernova, which is 2.5% of its weight. Supernova could be star around witch is bigger pressure, and fission give us implosion.The star, who is falls and will be split turns into a black ho ...

 2016-12-11 Piotr GrabowskiPedagogical University of Krakow Welcome,I'm not sure whether what I wrote is correct, but this is my problem. Galileo make thought experiment with gravitation and calculate speed of gravitation for earth. Below my calculate. Please if You can, check it and surrender criticism.Body weight has an effect on gravity, the bodies are heavier, the more they attracted. The sum of their masses are coupled is reduced by 5% from the sum of the bodies which are odalone from each other and interact with each other. Earth's gravity should be relativized to the weight of the body should also be taken into account air resistance. Bedding is falling more slowly than stone, single wash floating on the wind. The body is lighter, the gravity is less, because the same body separate from the planet, also gravitates to the planet. (M + O) / (V / M) = X Dictionary: M - Mass of attracting bodies, O - Distance, V - speed attraction, M - Mass of attracting bodies, X force of gravity. Under this link why 5% unfortunately just in polish.Warm reg ...

 2016-08-08 After the publication of this paper, I enjoyed personal communication with Aloysius Martinich and discovered that I misused if and only if in several places of this paper. The corrections are below:The formula indicates the following:1. A is relatively identical to the value, but A is not absolutely identical to the value.2. B is relatively identical to the value, but B is not absolutely identical to the value.3. The value of A is absolutely identical to the value of B.4. A is not identical to B.(page 135)1. The expression 1 + 3 is relatively identical to the value 4, but 1 + 3 is not absolutely identical to 4.2. The expression 2 + 2 is relatively identical to the value 4, but 2 + 2 is not absolutely identical to 4.3. The value of 1 + 3 is absolutely identical to the value of 2 + 2.4. The expression 1 + 3 is not identical to the expression 2 + 2.(page 135)1. The triumvir was relatively identical to Lepidus, but the triumvir was not absolutely identical to Lepidus.2.

 2016-07-08 I have come across a strange discrepancy between the claims of Simon Stevin and Einstein concerning gravitation. Well, the first is a classic thinker of the 16-17th century, while Einstein is a prodigy of the 20th. So, why should it be a problem? But then, this is not my area of expertise and I would like very much to hear from people on the know.I would greatly appreciate comments on the following post:http://philpapers.org/post/17566 Latest replies: Richard Sieb, 2016-08-10 : This is an interesting question.  I agree that if you just look at Einstein's special theory of relativity, it...

I am posting an explanation of this on my blog. It's drawn from my eprint

The Many Computations Interpretation (MCI) of Quantum Mechanics
http://arxiv.org/abs/0709.0544

but I expect to make a shorter paper just on this more limited topic.

My question is: is the explanation I give and purpose of what I am doing clear? Comments on the validity of the ideas are also welcome. Thanks.

So far I have the following posts on it (and see the main blog for more context related to QM):

 2011-04-11 Dear all,Lately I was wondering if there is any check on quality of review in e.g. Foundation of Physics.A paper can be rejected on  1. Stated dislike of the philosophy by the reviewer.2. Claim that a proof is 'not convincing' while giving no further spoecification at all.Does this kind of reviewing practices sound familiar to any of you?YoursHan Geurdes Latest replies: Han Geurdes, 2011-05-23 : thanks for your thoughtful response. I think that concerning the sociological processes working behind what scientists c... (read more)Colin Hales, 2011-05-23 : Yes, and specifically with the Foundation of Physics.
