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.

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.

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 […]

Is there room for God in a quantized universe?

The sup­posed proofs for the exis­tence of a the­istic God (0ne that inten­tion­ally cre­ated the uni­verse and has par­tic­ular interest in humans) have been resound­ingly defeated over the years. There simply is no proof, log­ical or oth­er­wise, for the exis­tence of such a God. The fact that the strongest argu­ments ever made in sup­port of […]
