Curved Spacetime

The next significant breakthrough that Einstein was to make was the realisation that space and time becomes curved in the presence of gravity.

As however gravity is an especially weak force in normal circumstances this curvature is so small as to be undetectable. However in the presence of matter with a substantial degree of mass the gravity force can exercise a significant degree of influence in warping surrounding space time. Einstein also postulated that gravity would cause light to bend in the vicinity of such mass. Indeed Rutherford's experimental verification of this in 1919 was accepted as proof of Einstein's General Theory thus paving the way for universal acclaim.

Once again there is a fascinating holistic correspondent to the curving of spacetime. Not only is this of interest in its own right but ultimately it throws considerable light on the true relationship of the electromagnetic to the gravitational force (demonstrating why a fully unified field theory is untenable in conventional scientific terms).

From the accepted physical perspective gravity arises in the presence of matter (with the actual force exercised depending on the degree of mass involved).

Corresponding appreciation of the holistic nature of curved spacetime arises from the complementary experiential loss of matter (with again the actual force experienced depending on the psychological weight i.e. mass involved).

As we have seen grief is synonymous with the psychological notion of gravity. And grief is experienced in human terms through the loss of what - literally - matters most to us e.g a loved one, a job, health etc.

The question then arises as to how the profound experience of grief can substantially curve psychological spacetime!

The key here is to recognise that the customary linear understanding of spacetime (resulting in absolute notions) is based directly on a rational interpretation (corresponding to conscious understanding).

However as we know from a psychological perspective, the conscious is in continual interaction with the unconscious mind. And whereas the conscious corresponds directly with analytic type appreciation of reality, the unconscious corresponds with holistic appreciation.
Furthermore just as conscious (analytic) understanding is of a direct linear nature (where the polar opposites of experience are separated) unconscious (holistic) understanding is of a direct circular nature (where the polar opposites are experienced as complementary).

So for example following the death of a loved one, grief is the typical reaction. This intensification in psychological gravity arises as the direct consequence of the personal loss experienced. This in turn leads to consequent loss with respect to a truly important set of phenomenal relationships (that thereby carry special weight). So we have therefore a considerable death with respect to psychic matter. This changes the focus inward in an unconscious search for holistic meaning.

And it is this holistic quest (relating to circular understanding) that therefore causes curvature with respect to the psychological experience of space and time.

Though difficult to bear, grief therefore can play an important role in the authentic development of holistic meaning as opposed to specific understanding of a conscious kind.

However because of the complementarity of the physical and psychological aspects of experience this explanation of the psychological nature of curved spacetime (entailing, both conscious and unconscious aspects) has necessarily a physical counterpart.

We cannot properly understand physical reality without incorporating in a qualitative manner both linear and circular type understanding.

The problem once again with the conventional explanation of curved spacetime in Einstein's approach is that it is confined in formal terms to a rational (linear) interpretation.

In other words though Einstein clearly realises the curvature of spacetime in quantitative terms, he does not recognise that this equally applies to the very mental constructs we use to interpret this reality.

Once again the standard default interpretation (i.e. 1-dimensional) that Einstein employed to the very end of his life strictly does not allow for any curvature of spacetime in a qualitative sense. Such curvature only begins to occur at higher dimensions (e.g. 2-dimensional) that we have looked at in previous contributions.

Indeed proper appreciation of the true nature of curved spacetime (in qualitative terms) provides the key to understanding why Einstein's subsequent search for a unified field theory was ultimately doomed to failure. We shall return to this important issue later!

  1. The interesting question of the definition of how magnetism and gravity are related has a basis for analysis which stems from quantum field theory algebraic topology. The equation developed for this reaction is relative quantum topological, an exact synthesis resulting from addition of the relativistic functions with the quantized ones. When the Schrodinger equation for one atom is expanded by series differential the data images and functions for gravitational field interactions with magnetic fields have clear results. These recent advancements in quantum science have produced the picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model imaging function, in terms of chronons and spacons for exact, quantized, relativistic animation. This format returns clear numerical data for a full spectrum of variables. The atom's RQT (relative quantum topological) data point imaging function is built by combination of the relativistic Einstein-Lorenz transform functions for time, mass, and energy with the workon quantized electromagnetic wave equations for frequency and wavelength.

    The atom labeled psi (Z) pulsates at the frequency {Nhu=e/h} by cycles of {e=m(c^2)} transformation of nuclear surface mass to forcons with joule values, followed by nuclear force absorption. This radiation process is limited only by spacetime boundaries of {Gravity-Time}, where gravity is the force binding space to psi, forming the GT integral atomic wavefunction. The expression is defined as the series expansion differential of nuclear output rates with quantum symmetry numbers assigned along the progression to give topology to the solutions.

    Next, the correlation function for the manifold of internal heat capacity energy particle 3D functions is extracted by rearranging the total internal momentum function to the photon gain rule and integrating it for GT limits. This produces a series of 26 topological waveparticle functions of the five classes; {+Positron, Workon, Thermon, -Electromagneton, Magnemedon}, each the 3D data image of a type of energy intermedon of the 5/2 kT J internal energy cloud, accounting for all of them.

    Those 26 energy data values intersect the sizes of the fundamental physical constants: h, h-bar, delta, nuclear magneton, beta magneton, k (series). They quantize atomic dynamics by acting as fulcrum particles. The result is the exact picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model data point imaging function, responsive to keyboard input of virtual photon gain events by relativistic, quantized shifts of electron, force, and energy field states and positions. This format, MAVCAM data imaging, displays gravitons entering and interacting with magnetic field particles by symmetry operations as well as some binding to the various magnefield particles themselves.

    Images of the h-bar magnetic energy waveparticle of ~175 picoyoctometers are available online at with the complete RQT atomic modeling manual titled The Crystalon Door, copyright TXu1-266-788. TCD conforms to the unopposed motion of disclosure in U.S. District (NM) Court of 04/02/2001 titled The Solution to the Equation of Schrodinger. TCD displays exact, calculated pymtechnical images of gravitons of six topologies, G(0), g(1)-g(5). Further, electron interactions with gravity are also imaged.
