Light & Sound, How Are they alike?
Continued from Light and Sound Chapter 38, Rational Science Vol. V, Introducing Rope Hypothesis and Thread Theory
Mixing primary colors gives us secondary colors, but no mixing of secondary colors can give us primary colors. Why is that, I wonder?
It's the difference between fundamental and composite "waveforms." A composite waveform is merely multiple ropes.
The color green has a wavelength of ABOUT 510nm. What one perceives as green is actually a range of wavelengths (Green 577 - 492). BUT, let’s select 510nm as the fundamental color "green."
Add 475nm (blue) and we have a composite color: let's call it aqua, or blue green.
ADD 510nm to 510nm and we have more intense green (more ropes with the same number of links per unit length), but it's still green.
Sound is similar to light in respect to fundamental and composite waveforms, but there is a difference between light and sound in how we perceive it, and not just because our ears are different than our eyes.
Humans really only have one sense, and that is touch. Surface to surface contact between molecules of air and the sensory apparatus ‘ear’ stimulate electro-chemical reactions in the auditory cortex resulting in what is known as hearing.
Surface to surface contact between molecules of various substances and compounds with two patches of sensory cells in the nose relay information by olfactory nerves to an area of brain that converts those impulses into something called smell. Surface to surface contact between food and the tongue produces a brain response called taste, and light touched rods and cones on the retina in the back of the eye result in something called vision which is experienced in the visual cortex of the brain.
The sense called touch is surface to surface contact between objects and receptors on the skin, muscles, bones, joints, and organs. There are chemical, temperature, mechanical, position, and pain receptors that relay information to the parietal lobe and the cerebral cortex. Taste combines tactile, auditory, and chemical cues.
All these senses are a result of surface to surface contact between objects, so in a way, we really only have one sense; the sense of touch. We shouldn’t be surprised. We understand that ALL phenomena are the result of surface to surface contact between two or more objects. There are only two kinds of “touch” : push and pull.
Light is torsion along ropes simultaneously in both directions. Sound is a form of light, and so it too is torsion along ropes simultaneously in both directions. BUT, isn't light a form of touch known as pull. What about sound? Isn’t this a form of touch known as push? I clap my hands, and the air is pushed forward towards your ears. The air molecules are directed into your inner ear and push against the tympanic membrane.
The problem lies in using the word TOUCH. What does this really mean? Certainly the particle phiz can not tell you that there is no distance between the air molecules and the tympanic membrane. If this were the case, then the air and membrane is one object, and if there is only one object then we can’t have touch. BUT this is only the beginning of the quantum mechanic’s troubles.
We are told about the “electrostatic repulsive force” between electrons, or graviton balls imparting negative momentum. In the first case, what prevents negative electrons in air atoms from attracting positive protons in the tympanic membrane atoms (the electrons are not always on the same side of the proton), and in the second case, how do colliding particles pull on each other without an intermediary? Nonsense!
OTOH, if all atoms are interconnected by EM ropes, we can explain both push and pull. Sight is a result of both push and pull, but hearing is, and the rest of the senses are, a result of push. In the case of sight, torsion is traveling along ropes between atoms in both directions, and with sound push happens directly between atoms as the electron shells come into contact with each other.
We often hear something like this, “Light does not require a medium to travel, but a longitudinal wave cannot propagate without a medium.” We are told that sound travels longitudinally in gases but we find it can also travel transversely in solids.
Actually nothing happens without a medium including light. So, what are they talking about?
- A longitudinal wave is a wave vibrating in the direction of propagation.
- A transverse wave is a wave vibrating at right angles to the direction of its propagation.
Of course both visible light and sound is torsion along ropes, but in order for us to hear a sound there needs to a perceived difference between the compression and decompression of the medium which is happening at right angles to the direction of propagation.
Light is a two way mechanism by virtue of interconnecting ropes between atoms. Sound is not returned directly back to the source because displacement of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of propagation, and remember this requires E-shells to interact with E-shells.
Remember I said this about the difference between sound and light?
“It's the difference between fundamental and composite "waveforms." A composite waveform is merely multiple ropes.”
Mother Nature equipped us with specialized sensory apparatus with limited bandwidth. Since every atom is connected to every other atom, everywhere, we are receiving (and transmitting) torsion signals between every atom in our body and every star in our galaxy. In other words, it is the particular composite waveforms we are aware of that inform our experience. If we didn’t have limited bandwidth sensory organs, our brains and bodies would be overwhelmed with billions of frequencies and wavelengths and amplitudes and unable to distinguish green from blue, let alone light from sound.
Fortunately, we have the unlimited ability to conceive of concepts and can explain all phenomena and even the underlying invisible physical mechanisms. AND we can do this consistently with a Theory of Threads.
