Preface

‘Mechanics of the quantum’ [MQ theory] searches for the mechanical microprocesses of the individual

and collective behaviour of quanta (interpreted as building blocks of fields, mass, energy, light…) to

reveal strong causality behind the laws of physics, rather than interpreting things with probabilities.

We refer to the preface of our previous paper [7] for further elaboration and discussion on this.

My work is focused on linking such processes to the laws of physics, which was induced by exact

mathematical and geometrical findings. A summary can be found in Appendix 1. In the current paper,

we report the precise findings of yet another observation in strong support of ‘Mechanics of the

Quantum’. We stayed true to the original model and the original causal principle [2, 4], as we have

done for the discovery of the previous 5 properties, see Appendix . Without adding new features to

the model, or changing the initial setup in any way. There is also no curve fitting with an abundance of

parameters involved in this research.

However, a recent observation of a strong parallel between the weakness parameter for segmental

arches, and the relativistic regime of Gamma, forced us to include a natural flattening of the quanta,

to insure the transition from the Newtonian regime to relativistic effects, within the MQ-model. Thus

generalizing the MQ-model. We haven’t yet readjusted the geometry in the MQ-model, but this paper

provides the foundation for that, supported be precise measurements.

And as usual, I hope that complementary skilled people (theoretical physicists, experimental physicists,

engineers, philosophers,...) will look into this work, and extend and improve it with their particular set

of knowledge, skills and talents.

Remark :

Concerning the use of ‘relativistic mass increase’ in the title of the paper, we would also like to refer

to further elaboration and interpretation of E = γmc² here : ‘ The equivalence of mass and energy ’

A - Generalizing the MQ-model to the relativistic regime

The generalized MQ-model consists of an extra effect on the circular quanta being compressed. Not

only do they get smaller according to the available space on a holographic layer (MQ-model as it

stands), they also experience a flattening in the direction of motion (Generalized MQ-model, not

geometrically developed yet, but supported as follows). Thus more holographic layers (read more

quanta) fit in the same radial length. Resulting in an increasing energy density and mass density

(quanta as compressible units of energy density and also as units of pre-constituents of mass [2]). This

was derived from an exact parallel with the strength of segmental arches.

The compression of a circular quantum shape previously lead to the exact Newtonian regime of

discrete energy levels [8, 7] although a relativistic effect of doubling of the Newtonian bending angle

was already included [3, 6] . So when we find a parallel mechanism now with arches, that shows a close

fit to the relativistic regime, due to a flattening of circles, then that is a strong indicator to take such a

parallel seriously and investigate further how exactly the flattening entails the cause of relativistic

effects such as relativistic mass increase, relativistic length contraction, relativistic time, relativistic

energy absorption. It also supports our initial – and unchanged – concept of quanta as orbiting pre-

constituents of mass with a circular orbit [2].

We derived this from a parallel effect found in the weakness curve of segmental arches. That regime

of exponentially increasing weakness of arches which are increasingly more flat, follows practically

completely (shown with precise measurement in graphs 1,2,3) the regime of relativistic energy

absorption.

The strength of the segmental arch under horizontal uniform load, is a function of the rise-to-span

ratio of the segment of a circle. That circle has a radius R, and 1/R is rate of curvature. As the radius

increases with constant span - flattening of the arch - , the arch will be weaker [A, B, C]. So if such an

arch were hypothetically to have an elastic, compressible and expandable) nature, like our quanta,

then it would experience exponentially increasing flatness with increments of load added. And thus

more quanta would fit in the same length, not just according to any exponential regime, but almost

exactly along the relativistic regime found in Gamma, the Lorentz factor, with increasing v/c, and its

equivalent gravitational counterpart (*). That is how we interpret the findings in graphs 1, 2 and 3.

(*) : The problem of gravitational energy has a.o. been adressed in 1973 in ‘Gravitation’ by Misner, Thorn & Wheeler on p.467.

Gravitational field energy is not part of the energy momentum tensor. And at the end of Chapter 20.4 we read : ‘At issue is not the

existence of gravitational energy, but the localizability of gravitational energy’.

B – Conclusions

We measured the weakness level of increasingly lower segmental arches, and compared that curve to

the curve of relativistic energy absorption, expressed by the Lorentz Factor or Gamma. We found a

very close match, without any adjustments of data, with exact measurements in CAD software

Rhinoceros 5.0 Commercial. (See graphs 1,2,3)

Ultimately this mounts up to measuring the length of the radius of a segmental arch, because a lower

rise f, with constant span L, results in higher segmental radius R, and consequently also √𝑅.

In our interpretation for the MQ-model [7, 4], a quantum represents equivalently 2 arches mirrored

into a compressing and flattening circle. The quanta in the generalized MQ-model will exponentially

flatten in the radial direction, thus more will fit into the radius. And our observations reported above,

lead to the following further interpretations for physics :

°Newtonian forces fuel the relativistic energy absorption mechanism on a very fundamental level :

With increasing speed v/c or increasing [ √(2GM/r) ] / c (°) the quanta of the fully generalized QM-

model will experience compression along the laws of Newtonian forces working on a more and more

elliptically shaped flattening quantum, resembling the more flat segmental arch. Thus with each equal

increment of added force (*), the compression effect (-) gets exponentially stronger in case of the

quanta, exactly according to the approximated Relativistic energy absorption regime (+).

Compression effect (-) : A quantum located more radially inward towards the center, is more

compressed (~arch) due to the extra radial force of more quanta on it, and thus it does not maintain

the shape of a perfect circle, in the MQ-model. Consequently more quanta are packed per original unit

of radial volume.

The reason is that with an increasingly more flat arch (a lower rise-to-span ratio, meaning a higher R

value), the horizontal outward force on the hinges [A, B, C] increases, upto a certain flatness, and does

so exponentially, representing weaker and weaker arches. Leading to a weakness regime of the more

and more flattened arch (directly linked to relativistic length contraction). More but shorter units per

unit of volume or length, make up more energy density.

(° ) non-rotating spherically symmetric case. (Also see remark p.1 on the problem of grav.energy)

(*) Equal increments of added force means: Atomic energy level n goes to n+1, or move m towards M

over one holographic layer, or increase mass M, or speed v/c goes up.

(+) Be it the energy density inside the atom, or that of the unified gravitational field.

5

°Collapse of flattened quantum avoids a singularity and stops propagation of light :

Because at some point the behaviour of the quantum changes from extreme flattening to collapse.

That is if we extrapolate the equivalent standard behaviour of segmental arches, they feature buckling

(instability leading to a failure mode, with deformations). Further, a flattening to ‘zero thickness’ is

avoided, in the case of our quanta. The reason is that we conjectured from the start that a quantum is

made up of orbiting pre-constituents of mass.

So the size of those pre-constituents is also the maximum flatness of the quantum. In [2], we already

hinted at a mechanism which thus destroys the elastic characteristics of the quantum at the BH

horizon, braking the capability of the quanta to transfer momentum (Newton’s cradle, propagation of

light conjectured [6 – p.18, 19 therein]). Which means as much as no more propagation of light at the

black hole horizon, neither in nor out.

With the generalized MQ-model we arrive thus, at a unified field of circular quanta which compress

into discrete energy densities, but continously deform into ellipse-like shapes, upto a certain limit. This

is a typical hybrid result. Hybrids tend to leave less favourable characteristics behind, and take more

favourable characteristic with them to the next generation (theory), while adding an extra element, to

adjust to the new environment. ‘The continuum generalizes to a finite continuous discontinuum‘ :-)

In GR, time is relative, in QM, time is absolute (in an nutshell). But the interpretations of the properties

of the MQ-model reveal that ‘the problem of time’ could be a non-problem. First we interpreted time

in GR as local energy densities (densities of compressed quanta in the discrete MQ-model of gravity –

Properties 1-4).

Then we found (Property 5) that the discreteness, and the energy level gaps, holds on the atomic level

of scale. And now we found a strong clue for the relativistic extension for the inertial, gravitational,

and the atomic realm of energy levels (Property 6). Also see ‘Properties’ on page 7, appendix 1.

So both for GR and QM, according to our MQ-model, ‘time’ emerges from energy densities, relative

from one location to another. And both for GR and QM, independently of any physics model, one can

install ‘time’ as a tool of the mind, where our mind does nothing more than structure the follow-up of

event, and give us a notion of past, present and future, which has nothing to do with the energy

densities as such.

Thus we should fully realize objectively, that ‘time’ in GR is not about the latter ‘time’, it is about the

frequency of a shift between 2 energy densities. And our work shows that the MQ-model of these

energy densities is identically applicable to the atomic realm as it was to the gravitational realm, hence

‘the problem of time’ might be a non-problem.

°Remarks :

We did not use any curve-fitting techniques, or adaptations in the setup. And the arch model used, is

independent of any type of material or thickness used for the arch. The curve in graph 2 on page 3

follows directly from the CAD measurements (In Rhino 5.0 Commercial) of the consecutive lengths of

R, of which we took the square root values, in a barebone setup of a segmental arch.

We did not speculate on the potential causes of the obtained deviation between the 2 curves in graphs

2 and 3, that is the relativistic Gamma curve (black), and the curve of the measured sq. root of

segmental arch radius (blue). Nor did we compare the compliance to experimental evidence. We are

not directly claiming here that the √𝑹 function is closer to experimental evidence, and we don’t

automatically expect that. The deviation can have many causes.

Appendix 1 [ Relating to the Preface ]

In retrospect, I concluded that the work done in previous papers and in the current paper, as well as the upcoming related papers, have one

thing in common : Mechanics of the quantum as the causal feature of the emerging properties of our MQ-model and our generalized MQ-

model under construction [a discrete model of energy densities with unifying characteristics] and the interpretations for physics. Therefore

we have allocated the derived emergent properties to the finished papers.

“But you have correctly grasped the drawback that the continuum brings. If the molecular view of matter is the

correct (appropriate) one, i.e., if a part of the universe is to be represented by a finite number of moving points,

then the continuum of the present theory contains too great a manifold of possibilities. I also believe that this too

great is responsible for the fact that our present means of description miscarry with the quantum theory. The

problem seems to me how one can formulate statements about a discontinuum without calling upon a continuum

(space-time) as an aid; the latter should be banned from the theory as a supplementary construction not justified

by the essence of the problem, which corresponds to nothing “real”. But we still lack the mathematical structure

unfortunately. How much have I already plagued myself in this way!” [Ref. by Physicist Sabine Hossenfelder
