Richard Collins: Isotopic Masses Fundamental Constant Groups World Education Gravitational Fuels at

Ken, I cover a lot of ground in two years, so these older videos are good but not great. I chat with OpenAI GPT 4 every day for several hours on difficult problems that I am working on for the Internet Foundation. When I put links in these comments, it always breaks so I can only suggest you try searching “Richard Collins, The Internet Foundation” and see what pops up. I have hundreds of conversations with GPT (mostly OpenAI and Bard) but only share a handful. I work 12-18 hours a day 7 days a week and that is hardly enough to deal with 8 billion humans using the Internet. You cannot trust GPT at all. It makes mistakes on arithmetic, symbolic mathematics. It fabricates plausible sentences that are completely false. So it is exhausting to have to check everything it says. But I use it as a kind of proxy for “what is commonly said on the Internet in chats blogs and wikis”. They refuse to link it to the input data, won’t let it search and explore the Internet for you. See if you can find “Richard Chats with” “GPT”, I would like to share more of those, but it takes a lot of manual editing.

Generally I consider the parallel plate geometry of many Casimir discussions to be very limiting. Solving the 3D wave equation for arbitrary distributions (shapes and textures and flows) with free charge and partially bound charge is not hard, just tedious. So you won’t find me talking about Casimir much. It is too limiting a starting point. Not sure what you want to do.

In the last couple of years I have firmed up my picture of “the radiation field”. This is just the 3D FFT in time of any object. Since it is an electromagnetic radiation field, it comes to equilibrium with its environment at the speed of light. Since the speed of light and gravity are identical and share the same potential I normally visualize all the gravitational effects at the same time. So take the earth for instance. Its radiation field has a large component connected with temperature. You can use the Stefan-Boltzman relation Watt/meter^2 = StefanBoltzmanConstant*KelvinTemperture^4 to get the power intensity from a voxel (volume). The power intensity (watts/m2) from the gravitationa energy density field peaks in the extreme ultraviolet and soft x-ray. I have spent a lot of time the last two years looking at soft x-ray groups, “high harmonic generation” to find those who might be able to measure fluctuations and flows in the noise of their experiments. The earth gravitatioanl energy density is equivalent to about 380 Tesla. And only now can groups make those kinds of fields for tiny volumes and short times. The static fields can get to 100 Tesla and it looks like magnetic nanowires and structures have local magnetic fields of that strength. It is no coincidence that “magnetic levitation” is one of the first electromagnetic methods for lifting and moving things in 3D. I wrote an essay for the Gravity Research Foundation in the early 1980’s about the gravitational energy density that unless you monitor the changes in the gravitational field you will not be able to make a stable fusion device on earth. The fusion guys use 6 Tesla and crow, but the gravitational energy density field is 380

I did find that the x-ray gamma-ray and particle antiparticle pair emission from lightning on earth is bounded by the gravitational energy density. Essentially the largest events in a tiny volume cannot exceed the local gravitational energy density. The same it true on the sun. The statistics on events on the sun in tiny voxels (“tiny” on the sun is (1 meter)^3 or smaller. I have spent a lot of time on solar data networks. I want to image down to (1 meter)^3 and check the statistics. Putting arrays in the solar system allows imaging stars and planets using models to store and refine the data. I wrote on Twitter yesterday:

“Far cheaper now to build solar system sized sensor systems to calibrate precise models of planets and surfaces of stars far from Earth, than to send ships to other stars. We do not need faster-than-light ships yet, to model simulate and visit far reaches of space. Say Computer!”

Sorry, It is 5:15 am and I am pretty tired. I was going to write it out. But I am just too tired. If you tell me what you are interested in, I can spend time and make a video for you. Then it is easier to show you what I see, even if I cannot show you the 3D images I use in my mind yet.

You can find me on ResearchGate and Hackaday IO and YouTube.
