Dabbling in Physics: My Crazy Unified Field Theory Proposal

I’m drinking coffee this morning relaxing after thinking all day yesterday about a fantastic idea that came into my imagination at random about our Universe. It was inspired ironically by some articles I had read recently in the field of quantum physics which I tend to either discount as wild theory or something I simply don’t understand.

I took Physics in high school so Ive always been interested in the search for a Unified Field Theory – an idea Einstein went to his grave searching for and which no scientist today has yet resolved. My grades in the sciences were not always the best, though I did ace a very brutal and long final physics exam my senior year in high school, the only one to do so btw, beating my much brainier classmates. But after dropping out of BioPhyshics at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas in 1987 due to boredom and poor grades I can say I wasn’t that great of a student much less a real candidate to seriously go into the sciences. I’ve always been a dreamer, a creative soul. Since that time I have taken my creativity and made a pretty good career as a senior software engineer and programmer. So I’m not a dummy. Ive just enjoyed rebelling against the intellectual and artistic community over the years. So forgive me for some silly assumptions below that are not based on deep research and study.

I had a bit of an epiphany yesterday reading a Wiki about “Quantum Entanglement”. Forgive me if what I purpose sounds horribly naive. But it might be a solution to an age old physics problem. It might be a huge idea! So let’s not waste time….

Could it be possible that when the Big Bang exploded, it sent streaming into the universe particles in which many so-called matching quantum pairs of atoms, highly entangled, got shot far apart into the universe? In other cases many pairs remained local or together, forming collapsed space. But could it be these distant sibling atoms separated across time and space are what gravity and space itself and other phenomenon are made of? This then could explain why the universe doesn’t collapse on itself, yet why local forces like black holes do.

What quantum entanglement supposes is that no matter how many light years away two entangled particles are, changing one particle instantly effects the other and that change cuts across great distances and is so immediate it’s even faster than light. This implies that a particle paired in the middle of the sun should display one gravitational force compared to a particle entangled to its sibling halfway across the universe, correct?

This would mean we live in a universe propped up by the pairings of distant particles that pull on each other or who desire to come together with their opposite pairs, but which create the space that gravity lives in. But it gets better.

This idea of distributed paired particles across the cosmos must have powerful impacts on gravity in space in a given mass. Based on this idea it implies gravity is a force that is measured by and propped up by the force between a large mass made of a mix of closely paired quantum particles and more distant sibling particles distributed across space by the Big Bang. This then explains some reasons why some stars collapse into denser masses but don’t collapse into black holes, while others disappear into black holes completely. Based on this idea, I bet the volume of matching pairs that come together and merge in a given mass decide if a star collapses. And black holes must be the sum of all the masses of local pairs or rather singularity of all the matching pairs and entangled particles in a give point in space that have come back together.

If this were some factor in mass we don’t see then quantum forces would now tie into forces with Einstein’s Relativity theories in a way that fill in the last mysteries of why larger objects like stars and black holes seem so wild at times and others completely contained.

Example….take two large dying stars. Forget the differing effects of fusion as they die and the variables in that process based on what the star is made of and how a dying star might collapse. But assume our first star is made of a dense collection of closely paired quantum entangled particles and the second has matter mostly of isolated particles with few closely spaced pairs in its mass whose sister particles are widely distributed across the universe.

My theory goes that a star with many local pairs should be more likely to collapse into a black hole, it’s gravitational pull reverting those particles back to a singularity or increased gravitational effect where matter is consumed into infinite gravity as they join. And so the idea becomes these stars should collapse based on higher levels of local pairs. When those local pairs of particles merge within the star they revert back to emptiness of some state of matter that is a rift in space….a singularity. You should also see this exact phenomenon around black holes that have greater chances of increasing in size when they consume matching pairs of local quantum entangled particles into them.

But the weaker star in my example whose mass is made of particles who’s quantum pairs are stretched across the universe would not collapse, as space between those pairs would pull back against gravity or matter and so their density would be less. A very dense neutron star would be the result, for example. What keeps it from collapses is quantum entanglement. The universe of particles in other galaxies thus keeps these stars in check. Suddenly so much is now explained by this idea of local and distant quantum entangled particles.

If this theory were true, it would perfectly explain why some black holes are gigantic with immense gravitational fields while others are smaller. Super black holes must be huge particle trash collectors where matter is sucked in and a certain percent of closely paired particles takes place empowering the black hole while most do not so are just converted into energy like gamma rays and spat back out. Those particles that match ones near the hole come together and merge into its singularity or immense gravity in a way that they collapse back into it’s emptiness. They return to nothingness! Yet what spins about the black hole cannot be consumed as those entangled particles have siblings distributed far away. The fate of all matter back to emptiness is thus controlled by entanglement.

But smaller holes must be pulled still by many distant stars and masses in distant galaxies that pair with particles still spinning around the black hole but which cannot collapse into it. They are victims of the massive pull by sister entangled particles across the universe so gain in strength but are kept in check. These forces of trillions of far away particles creating space and force against these black holes keeps them from ever getting larger. Only very large stars containing local pairs and thus more powerful gravity add to the black hole but most of what’s spinning around it must be “orphaned matter” keeping the black hole in check.

This would then mean quantum forces of distant entangled particles are what prop up space itself and keep the universe from collapsing but yet expanding as the collective force of these orphaned particles must be immense. This then means we live in a universe more connected and entwined than we know! But it’s now fully explained in its state when the Big Bang expanded, the state its in now, and how and why it would ever end. For this distributed matter of the cosmos isn’t simply made of isolated atoms in a sea of dark matter as much as it is a see if orphaned particles that were split apart long ago. It’s their distribution that appears to bind the universe as one great whole we simply cannot yet measure of understand. Gravity is simply a result the forces striving to both pull it together yet what keeps it pulled apart.

But quantum entanglement on a cosmic scale also explains why gravitational forces or rather mass seem so strange and how quantum laws now could define gravity which had been such a HUGE mystery.

The pull of sister entangled particles across vast stretches of space likely is a force that keeps lots of gravitational fields in check and from growing in large stars and planets like our own. But it also implies that deep in the earth and in our sun these conjoined entangled particles must exist. In other words part of what pulls us around the sun must be some particle entanglement. This implies many levels of entanglement between different atoms we don’t yet comprehend.

If this idea is true it means parts of atoms on earth have sister particles distributed across the universe and we are more connected to the universe than we ever imagined. It implies also some future “space hunt” for these sibling particles that match particles on earth. Maybe the sun holds some or Mars? What happens when we take a space ship and bring them back to earth and pair them? One theory is they create a super heavy mass of tremendous gravity we can use to empower engines or energy, warp space, or matter possibly that collapses into some singularity and vanishes to a zero-point? This means our sun is also a mixture of local paired particles and distant pairs. If we could measure somehow each stars mixture we should be able to predict it’s likelihood of becoming say a neutron star vs a black hole, etc.

There’s way too much I don’t understand about gravity and quantum theory that might discount much of this. But Quantum Entanglement suggest something here that’s profound about space, time, and gravity that seems explainable if our universe is made of these shattered or rather split co-joined particles the Big Bang distributed long ago. It seems to put together a puzzle of how all matter in the universe is both interconnected in a bizarre set of entangled particles between distant galaxies and yet how space and gravity are defined by that mesh of particles they do hold that are paired inside them.

To prove this theory I’m guessing scientists would have to figure out local versus distant quantum pairs for a given mass say on earth. I would guess they aren’t evenly distributed across space and time. Surely this implies sibling particles are waiting to be paired on earth? Some might be connected to other planets or galaxies. It gets really interesting. Could it be the mass that’s visible or measurable is based on the effect of all these atomic pairs distributed across the galaxy but the ones on earth with local pairs are what create gravity…. or the opposite, have zero gravity and zero space characteristics? Too many wild questions this implies.

But if this idea were true, which it feels that way, it now explains why our earth sits in this vast space created by these distributed entangled particles that create space and yet define gravitation variables like waves in some weird way. Should all these pairs be brought back together all gravity would go to infinity and matter, space, and time collapse back to ground zero again! And so we see what the Big Bang actually made….a massive distribution of entangled particles that someday might be joined back together again.

But the fact these particles on earth have siblings in distant parts of the universe now creates a fascinating search for their sisters. It means the secret to the universe is simply finding matter’s ancient pairs. This has huge implications for how we measure forces on lots of bodies, things like energy, even space travel. If a large mass had sister particles in one section of the universe, it suddenly means it’s gravity and space is warped and we could bend space if we knew how one mass related to another. Black holes seem to express this very thing, for around them swirl the dust of stars likely filled with orphaned particles that warp space and time as they point to large masses of sister particles they attract.

That might be a key to understanding why some black holes behave differently, too. If we created a tunnel of space from two distant blocks of entangled masses that were paired would the space between them change and create focused gravity, accelerate spaceships, or allow time travel? Possibly.

Being an armchair physicist means I get to be lazy and make up crazy ideas in my head like this while the real scientists have to work on real science with a hypothesis that must be proven then peer reviewed. So forgive me! But I’ve always in my mind been perplexed by the universe and it’s mysteries. To me this idea now starts to explain in my imagination so many odd things in a nice clean way tied to quantum entanglement and gravity maybe no one else considered.
