Overview

Humans and their Universes by Rodney Bartlett

According to this brilliant or nonsensical (depends who's reading it) summary and essay, many of the present scientific mysteries become explicable. And this new science reaches into areas once reserved for religion and philosophy. While the conclusions are unbelievably fantastic by today's standards (we could travel to any point in the universe, or in time, instantly - we could achieve physics' holy grail of cosmic unification, and unify the large scale universe with small scale quantum mechanics - we could see eternal health for everyone who ever lived - and proper understanding of unification would not only show that a being called God must exist but humans would be unified with that God), I don't think the steps taken to arrive at those conclusions are irrational at all. They have their foundation in quantum mechanics, Einstein's Relativity, a recent demonstration in electrical engineering at Yale University and, of course, the inspirational work of Professor Stephen Hawking.

Yes, I'm writing about science AND religion - my book has its beginnings in a cellular automaton (in mathematics and computer science, a collection of cells on a grid that evolves through a number of discrete time steps according to a set of rules based on the states of neighbouring cells) and grew into a belief that the universe has an electronic foundation.

I've always been far more curious about the distant future than the present, and this is what my curiosity has revealed to me. Its conclusions are absolutely incredible at times ... which is why I felt the need to spend years (decades, actually) writing a long, detailed article explaining those conclusions, and making my article as perfect as my limited abilities permit. And I have the feeling that the distant future I've been thinking about is not so distant after all. It might be possible for much of the technology mentioned here to reach fruition in this century, or in the 22nd/23rd century.

In the next 50 years, science could not only make the visions shown to us by Star Trek come true but it could surpass those visions, unimaginably by today's standards. If we can cast aside our emotional attachments to life as we know it, all this might happen within 50 years. If we cannot cast aside our attachments, we'll call the following "nonsense" and might have to wait hundreds of years to see it come true. I'll first summarise the steps leading up to (and beyond) exploration of all space-time then write a detailed essay showing how those paragraphs are consistent with the plausible nature of the universe and are therefore not science fiction.

About the Author

&Gacute;day from the Land Down Under! To be exact: from a town called Stanthorpe, which is in the southern part of the state Queensland, in Australia. Ím a guy who was born in this town in 1956. At age 15, I left High School to become an apprentice printer at the local newspaper. This is the 3rd little paperback I've had published (like the song by the Beatles says, I'm a "Paperback Writer"). The 1st one - "Rod's Room: A New Earth and A New Universe" - came along in 2006. At the time, I thought it was great! But another one - "A New Earth and A New Universe" (without the Rod's Room) took shape in my mind and was published in 2009. This revised edition is, in my view, more complete and written much better (new ideas kept flashing into my head at a dizzying pace from about June to September of 2009). Then I read an article in a science magazine at the start of 2010 stating that, on silicon chip- and transistor- scales, light can attract and repel itself like electric charges/magnets. Over the next few hours, this grew into the basis for ideas like protection from cosmic rays, new treatments in medicine, instant intergalactic and time travel. And during the rest of the year, these ideas were expanded, ending up with E=m^1+0 (a version of Einstein's E=mc2 that seems to be suited to the 21st century). Now you can read the year's efforts if you want to because they've been published in "Humans and their Universes" (there are earlier versions floating around on the Internet).
