PSI Blog 20210705 George Coyne’s “Notfinity Process” is published


By George Coyne:


The 2nd edition of Notfinity Process is subtitled Matter-In-Motion. It challenges orthodox models in cosmology, consciousness, relativity physics. and most interpretations of quantum mechanics. In presenting alternatives to the standard theories of how the Universe functions, it synthesizes rational ideas in theoretical physics. It has 59 pages on the brain and consciousness.

 

The abstraction of the notfinity process is an infinity of relationships, structures, and processes that persist while transient objects vary. In mathematics, infinite was first used in the 15th century to mean not finite. But now it is conceived too concretely as a representation of reality, rather than a negation of the finite. Therefore, Coyne suggests the word notfinity be used instead.

 

The book's univironmental, deterministic worldview has aspects of classical mechanics, systems philosophy, and David Bohm’s causal interpretation of quantum mechanics. It discusses invalid abstractions in physics, such as motion without matter, wave-particle duality, probability waves, cosmological expansion, Schrödinger's cat, and the idea that the Universe can't exist without observers. Relativity is shown to violate scientific assumptions, and to contain math errors.

 

Notfinity Process reveals absurdities in the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, and problems with Relativity and the Big Bang Theory, which is falsified in 66 different ways. It asserts that quantum mechanics and relativity can't be unified due to their deep flaws. Glenn Borchardt's Infinite Universe Theory, Universal Cycle Theory, and Neomechanical Gravitational Theory co-written with Stephen Puetz are described. Included are Duncan Shaw’s aether papers on a new model for gravitation, his accounting for quantum entanglement, and his September 2020 paper On Maxwell’s 1865 theory of Aether: A Step Toward Unity.

 

Other topics are an explanation for the double-slit experiment, Maxwell's aether, energy, dark matter candidates, the cosmological principle, alternatives to the galactic redshift interpretation, Modern Mechanics Theory, and an aether gravity model. A chapter on the Bohm and Hiley approach explains causality and chance, pilot waves and the undivided universe. The book has several relevant letters sent to the author by physicists David Peat, and Basil Hiley who won the Majorana Prize Best Person in Physics. Both were friends of David Bohm and co-wrote books with him.

 

The chapter on the brain, mind, self, and consciousness offers an interesting perspective on being human. Coyne proposes that the fully functioning brain equates with consciousness. The hard problem of subjective experience is examined. Coyne contends that matter in motion generates perceptions, which the brain interprets based on the mind's neuronal patterns. The difference between awareness and consciousness, the cause of dualistic confusion, and a description of the Global Workplace Theory is discussed. Logical answers are given to questions on consciousness. Also covered is self-awareness, Antonio Damasio's model, negative implications from brain studies on free will, the evolutionary benefit of advanced mental processes, neuroscience discoveries, higher-order thought theory, and other topics.

 

George S. Coyne is a Canadian philosopher, science communicator, author, educator and counselor. He heads the Vancouver office of the Progressive Science Institute and is on the Board of Directors of John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society. He agrees with philosopher Nicholas Maxwell's position that science and philosophy need to be reunited into a modern version of natural philosophy. Duncan W. Shaw wrote about the author: “George Coyne is an original thinker who engages his readers with remarkable clarity and insight."

Coyne writes for Beyond Mainstream Science and contributes blogs to thecientificworldviewblogspot.com.

He will be interviewed by David de Hilster on problems with the Big Bang Theory on July 10, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. EST on his YouTube Dissident Science channel. His interview on consciousness with David de Hilster is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLPpeCyNkEU.
