Time Crystals and Complementarity
PSI Blog 20170308 Time Crystals and Complementarity
Readers familiar with the Sixth Assumption of Science, complementarity (All things are subject to divergence and convergence from other things) and the Second Law of Thermodynamics may be interested in a recent break-through dubbed “time crystals.”
FIONA MACDONALD at Science Alert puts it this way:
Constant motion without energy.
That last bit has been corrected:
“Update 31 January 2017: We had previously compared the constant oscillation of the time crystals as being in perpetual motion at ground state, which isn't accurate. We've now corrected this explanation.”
Actually, I was hoping to get some crystallized time so I can get my new book “Infinite Universe Theory” done some time this century. Oh well, at least we don't have to suffer yet another transgression of the Fourth Assumption of Science, inseparability (Just as there is no motion without matter, so there is no matter without motion). While energy neither exists nor occurs, it still is a useful calculation. I am also glad that this really is not about motion without energy. I don’t quite know what to make of the claim that this is “one of the first examples of non-equilibrium matter.” What would really be surprising would be to discover an example of “equilibrium matter." With all microcosms in the universe moving with respect to all other microcosms, nothing is truly in equilibrium. All matter is “non-equilibrium matter,” just as all reactions are irreversible.
Any confusion about this study stems from the vagaries of systems philosophy. If one totally ignores the macrocosm (environment) of the particular microcosm being studied, there are bound to be some surprising results. Be reminded that the macrocosm contains a veritable zoo of supermicrocosmic particles. Any time an experiment verges on discovering a violation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, rest assured that some factor in the macrocosm has been ignored when it should not have been.
Per the Fifth Assumption of Science, conservation (Matter and the motion of matter can be neither created nor destroyed) no microcosm can exhibit an increase in motion without having received it from somewhere else.
