Quantum mechanics results from a geometric model of spacetime. This video describes:
- Quantum interference
- The quantum wave function
- The double slit experiment
From the blog
Knot Physics is a unification theory that describes all physical phenomena using a branched spacetime manifold that is embedded in a Minkowski 6-space.
Beyond the Standard Model
Manifold topology and geometry result in particles: elementary fermions are topological defects in the manifold, and elementary bosons are geometric features of the manifold.
The spacetime manifold has constraints but is under-constrained; thus, the behavior of the spacetime manifold is random with respect to its degrees of freedom. Entropy maximization results in the dynamics of all physical phenomena, including quantum mechanics and all forces.
Fermion geometry allows a derivation of the fine structure constant from first principles with no fine tuning. The estimate is accurate to 0.1%. Calculation of additional Feynman diagrams may result in additional accuracy.
The theory also includes a candidate for dark matter that does not depend on a new particle and a natural explanation for dark energy.
