Prime numbers are directly related to quantum physics

13 Mar

I was reading a book this morning and came across something I had not read before: Prime numbers are directly linked to quantum energy levels. That is astounding!

This link explains it very well, Basically prime numbers are the building blocks of numbers in general of math and no one has been able to find a pattern for over 2,000 years as to how they are distributed, until this guy Bernhard Riemann discovered that if you plotted the numbers in 2 dimensional space to give them height, you create landscape..and in this landscape you see a pattern of areas that are at ‘sea level’. He hypothesized that all prime numbers fall in this zero area/sea level. it’s called the Riemann hypothesis.

The landscape created by the Riemann hypothesis it turns out, directly matches the quantum energy levels of atoms. This is amazing! It’s like in the Matrix where neo sees the code that builds his world. Again, I do not believe there is such a thing as ‘random’ and that everything has a pattern. Everything is ordered and anything that seems chaotic is not. Prime numbers seemed chaotic and without pattern for 2,000 years until Bernhard Riemann came up with his hypothesis. Same with the energy levels of atoms and their distribution.

This is cool shit, why does anyone use religion to answer the mysteries of life?? Math and science answer everything if we pry deep enough.

    Hmm, looks interesting.
    I can’t speak for everyone else who believes in God, but I don’t use religion to answer the mysteries of life, I leave that to science, and stuff like this impresses the hell out of me. Science is what tells me how the universe works, and religion/philosophy helps me to understand how I relate to it.

    Math and Science
    Do math and science explain Love? Loyality? Hope? Can you bottle Meaning? Do you know the source of Purpose? Even if science explained all the physical facts of the universe, it would never be able to tell us the significance of it. First there was nothing and then it exploded? . . .HA. Time + Chance = Life? Don’t think so. You forget it wasn’t until just recently that science came to the same conclusion the Bible has been telling us all along. “The universe had a beginning” It seems the more science we learn the more evidence we have for God’s existance. I don’t have enough faith to be an athiest. . .and I CERTAINLY don’t trust the conclusions of scientists about questions of origin or eternity (let alone spirituality) when they change their theories about “life, the universe and everything” at least ever 50 years.

      Re: Math and Science
      First there was nothing and then it exploded? believe God, a super intelligent being who has the capability to design organic life from scratch..JUST IS..and needs no designer, needs no creator, and needs no beginning. So if you say that something THAT complex can happen without an intelligent designer, how is that different than what I believe?

    One might like a scientist evidence for belief
    The Language of God
    long time head of the human genome project
    Also listened to Bertrand Russell religion and science.
    The body has a head by Dr. Gustav Eckstein really helps to understand the ontological belief in or presence of god.
    Bollingen Princton, Symbol of Transformation under libido, nature of libido, helped to understand the language
    that encodes beliefs in psyche of our species.Prime Lumineries.
    Its language theory that helps me understand religion, religion mean to tie one back,Dr. feyman help me a lot he told his student to use dictionariers after using it to understand the words i.e. (religion) boundary conditions and resolution good. Use them all the time. Very much like physics math metaphors, so much talk about inflation for insinct, after reading short definition from science dictionary under inflation(early universe) there in a nut shell for understanding inflation best place to start the thought.
    Oxford companion to philosophy,prime luminiere, where could one have terms like subjectivity/objectivity ,entrophy ,laws of thermodynamics, time arrow,golbalisation, reference text a real building blocks.
    After a few readings of word play in, nature of libido from symbols of transformation understood religion, culture, language, physilology, bible study all from a few pages non-cacotrophic writings.
    Then after all those reading greater than the sum of the parts permittivity and permeability of space galileo not suffering from lack of viscosity break down.
    Interesting language theory (in-ter-est-ing) com
    formula factoring of word interesting looks very luminerie the cock doth crow to let they know tis time to rise now thou be wise (est) lingham alan turning in peek-a-boo! Spin Doctor
    Multiply nuclear warhead multidiscipline sciences Greater than the sum of the parts galileo galilei

    P.S. I forgot the most important comment ,it wasn’t until i read liebnitz, that i learn to connect language with math.Use Liebnitz to Logic and language the use of math in philosophy metaphors of primes also. Just a paperback, excurpt from liebnitz New York State University the father of Logic ABC/XYZ.a not b not c stuff but how it pretains to language the important point. Just finished reading Marcus du Sautoy the music of the primes , almost finished his book on symmetry but how its used in writting and thought process, a genetic icon for my gene code.

    Do math and science explain Love? Loyality? Hope?
    “anonymous” on Aug. 12 brings up some valid points. This is no place to discuss these though. S/he ought to read the Critique of Judgment by Kant and try to understand the sections on teleological judgment for a deeper understanding of the subject matter raised in the objections to the original post. (tip: read the Critique of Pure Reason first)

    Is the book you are reading called ‘Quantum for the Perplexed’ by Jim Al-Khalili? Because I remember reading the exact same sentence in it, that led me to try finding the patterns in the prime numbers.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    I would not put it in the freezer for a long time,
    you can put it in the freezer for a couple of hours but I would
    not put it in there for a couple of weeks. Cut pig-in-blanketfree from strip and
    make 19 more pigs-in-blankets in same manner, arrangingthem, seam sides down, as they are made on prepared
    baking sheet. (only because they moaned about
    eating their veggies).

    “Math and science answer everything if we pry deeply enough.” Really? Is it scientific to believe that? No. Here’s a quick proof that science can’t answer all questions.

    Proposition: Science cannot answer all questions.
    Corollary: The proposition is proven if I can provide at least one question that cannot be answered by science. (Existence proof.)
    1. I assert that God is an entity who has infinite power to change the universe at will, perfect knowledge of the past and present state of the universe, and no scientifically measurable properties (no mass, electromagnetic emanations, gravity, measurable interactions with measurable particles, etc.).
    2. Science can only answer questions that are at least in principle testable through the scientific method.
    3. Since God (according to this definition) has no measurable properties, no test could ever prove or disprove Hs existence. Therefore, His existence or non existence cannot be answered via science.
    4. We have articulated one question that cannot be answered by science. Therefore, science cannot answer all questions.

    The extension of this proof to the proposition that “Science and math cannot answer all questions” is left as an exercise to the reader.

    People turn to religion to answer questions that science cannot. If you think that science can answer all questions, you don’t yet understand the limits of the power of science.

    Is it possible that prime numbers are a remnant of the first(random) quantum state of the universe ? All started from a single quantum state that left “an imprint” on the physics(and math derived of it) of our universe. If there are other universes then they might have different prime numbers(or whatever concept describing fundamental rules of the math) derived from theirs first quantum states ?
