A Quantum Theory of Microvita

Can "microvitic QFT" explain gravity?

.. what we conceive as "gravity" is essentially how the equilibrium of the svabhava manifests in the world of time, place and person, whereas the way how this works is explained in "microvitic QFT".



Isaac Newton was the first to conceptualize gravity and succesfully applied it to the movements of the moon and the planets. But Newton was very well aware that he had not explained what gravity really is, or what causes it.

Paul Diracs "mathematical coup" attempting to unify quantum physics and relativity led to the famous Dirac equation. One of the outcomes was the prediction of a new particle, the positron (anti-electron), which was later indeed discovered.

The Dirac equation however only relates to special relativity, not to general relativity, and therefore does not explain gravity in terms of quantum physics. Einsteins theory of general relativity itself describes gravity as "the curvature of space" around massive objects, i.e. not a force, but fails to explain how or why stars and planets "inform" the space around them to be curved.

In other words, to this day, gravity remains an unexplained phenomenon both in classical and modern physics, and therefore it is not part of the Standard Model of particles and interactions.

Also microvita theory, resp. microvita cosmology, does not explictly explain gravity and P.R. Sarkar does not even mention it. But maybe there lies a clue in the idea that microvita maintain the balance in the macrocosm.

First, on a somewhat (yogic-) psychological note, we navigate the world based on propensities and inferences. "Propensities" in this context refers mainly to the inner sensory perceptions (the actual colors we see, etc..), whereas "inferences" refers to physically measurable waves. We automatically assume that both realms are perfectly aligned. But are they really?

Whereas physics is absolutely clueless when it comes to the true cause and nature of our perceptions, quantum field theory (QFT) nevertheless provides an interesting and well tested conceptual framework. In QFT, the scalar field is the all-pervasive field that gives mass to particles (and maybe also has other qualities). The scalar field is normally hidden. When it starts interacting with matter however, it exhibits two crucial properties:

1) A "Vacuum Expectation Value" (VEV), a sort of (scalar) electrostatic potential
2) A "Goldstone mode or -boson", a quantum oscillation of the field

This was experimentally confirmed by CERN in 2011/2012.

It is hypothized that in a real life, complex situation, these resp. scalar field interactions are controlled by positive and negative microvita, or for that matter, "positive resp. negative microvitic effects". Back to yoga-psychology: the VEV could relate to the inner sensory perceptions, whereas the Goldstone oscillation relates to physical waves.

An interesting side note is that in terms of Sarkar's "Theory of Creation" (A.S. Ch. 4), the VEV is reminiscent of "nada", that is, continuous flow, and the Goldstone oscillation to "kala", flow with curvature.

Now, would these "positive resp. negative microvitic effects" be perfectly balanced? To say that this depends on the perspective might be somewhat unscientific. Better is to say, that they create a complex (self-referring) equilibrium (swabhava) which itself is independent of the factors of time, space and person.

In this "microvitic QFT", the framework of time and space (and thus physics) is however imminent. It could be hypothized that in the actual context of the latter, the equilibrium requires and manifests through one external factor, and this is gravity.

In other words, what we conceive as "gravity" is essentially how the equilibrium of the svabhava manifests in the world of time, place and person, whereas the way how this works is explained in "microvitic QFT".

Moreover, with the proposed Synchronized Path Integral solution of "microvitic QFT", this can be shown in exquisite detail. Namely, there is a small mismatch between the sub-wave- and spacial geometries, resulting in an uneven or unresolved, and in fairness unresolvable confinement of the quantum fields. The constant dynamism trying, as it were, to align the subwave- with the spacial geometries might account for the effect of gravity.

In terms of microvita theory - microvita maintain the balance in the macrocosm, internally in the form of a self-referring equilibrium (svabhava), and externally through the objective faculties of propensities and inferences... plus gravity!!

Indeed it is the so called subjective faculties, that is Jina Purusa and more so Krta Purusa, which are currently little or unknown in physics, that need to be studied deeply in order for science to make a much needed leap forward.

On a philosophical note, as the "time-space-person" framework is, though imminent, entirely optional, it could conveniently be argued that this is in fact what is known in Hindu-tradition as well as in spiritual philosophy as "maya". One could say in a sense that gravity is the hallmark of this "maya" - this illusory world that is imminent within the fabric of creation. If one gets out of this maya (which theoretically could happen in an instant and effortlessly), one will immediately be freed from the pull of gravity - that is of course, mentally. Then one is immersed in the pure inner being of consciousness and no longer bound by the capricious material world - 't is a consummation devoutly to be wished.
