Thad Roberts stumbled upon this intuitively accessible eleven dimensional geometry by exploring the possibility that space itself has a fractal structure; that space is geometrically constructed from quanta that are in turn constructed from sub quanta, and so on ad infinitum. This geometric starting point realigns our expectations of what we should observe in Nature. In this, it gives us intuitive access (which we didn’t have before) to the mysteries of modern physics. But how precisely does it match up with those mysterious effects? To answer that question Thad, and a team of others, are cur­rently pursuing the full mathematical formulation of this geometry. Thad enjoys exploring unfamiliar realms and consciously seeking out experiences that have the potential to shed light on Nature’s hidden structure, and bring clarity to the many facets of humanity. He has been dropped down a mine shaft in Peru, discovered a Tyrannosaurid tooth in the Utah deserts, skin dived off the shores of Hawaii, mined for rare gem stones, experienced zero gravity, extreme isolation, and explored the remains of a sunken ship. When he was 22, Thad was hired by NASA at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas as an Astrophysicist. From this position he went to Geo-astrophysicst and then eventually to Flight Lead in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory where he went SCUBA diving with the astronauts and helped train them for their EVAs (space walks). He also participated in under water studies of the International Space Station mock-ups. At age 25, Thad masterminded the infamous moon rock caper and made off with contam­inated lunar samples (labeled “trash” by NASA). 33 years to the day after Neil Armstrong first picked up a piece of the moon, Thad sold some pieces and landed in the middle of a government sting. Thad was handed 100 months in federal prison for his actions. He used that time to focus his energies on the hidden structure of Nature and to wrestle with the mysteries that plague modern physics. qst was the result. Though he would never repeat those actions, Thad says that he doesn’t regret how things turned out. Despite the isolation, loneliness, and hard lessons that defined those years, he notes that without that time of intense dedication and constant focus he may have never dived so deeply into the construction of our Universe. Thad left prison with something more valuable to him then a safe full of moon rocks – a manuscript over 700 pages long that lucidly described the concepts of his new theory and how he was led to them. Those who have read the pre-print version of ‘Einstein’s Intuition’ have been amazed at how simply this new geometry all fits together — and how it inspires us all to rise to the challenge of living an adventurous life.

Pilot wave experiments spark new interest

Here’s a great video introduction to the basic concepts held in common by pilot wave theories (de Broglie’s double solution theory, the de Broglie-Bohm theory (also known as Bohmian mechanics, superfluid vacuum theory (and of course, quantum space theory). Given that a pilot wave approach is deterministic and ontologically accessible, why isn’t it more popular? Here’s why.

Vacuum Superfluidity

Vacuum Superfluidity

Thad Roberts and Marcus Tofanelli explore the assumption that the vacuum is a superfluid. They reveal that vacuum superfluidity imports a mechanism for mass generation, explains wave-particle duality, inscribes the constants of nature, and carves out room for geometric authorship of the four forces.

The Constants of Nature

Bohmian Mechanics

  Consider the equation . This equation relates the pressure, volume, and temperature of an ideal gas. All of these concepts are macroscopic — meaning that on the level of the molecules that make up the gas the meaning of ‘pressure,’ ‘volume,’ and ‘temperature’ dissolves. One molecule cannot have a pressure, it cannot be said […]
