Actually the idea quantum mechanics brings up is the issue of the Universe being a Fluid.




If space-time is like a liquid—a concept some physicists say could help resolve a confounding disagreement between two dominant theories in physics—it must be a very special liquid indeed. A recent study compared astrophysical observations with predictions based on the notion of fluid space-time, and found the idea only works if space-time is incredibly smooth and freely flowing—in other words, a superfluid.

Ok so basically the conclusion that is OFFERED is that reality actually functions like a fluid. We exist because of this and it is impossible otherwise (there in lies the rub).

Any thoughts?

Greetings-



Arium= To denote a place or location.
Aqua = water


Waterplace.

are you suggesting that nature does not
operatize like a fluid?

Perhaps you should elaborate upon your position.

What if space-time were a kind of fluid? This is the question tackled by theoretical physicists working on quantum gravity by creating models attempting to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics. Some of these models predict that space-time at the Planck scale is no longer continuous – as held by classical physics – but discrete in nature. Just like the solids or fluids we come into contact with every day, which can be seen as made up of atoms and molecules when observed at sufficient resolution. A structure of this kind generally implies, at very high energies, violations of Einstein’s special relativity (a integral part of general relativity).

That is appreciated.

From what they are saying, they think the universe is like some kind of giant discrete "quantum grid" like a multi-dimensional cellular automata, reaction-diffusion or fluid dynamics simulation. What we see as a single sub-atomic particle doesn't occupy one grid square but is more of a density cloud that occupies a volume of grid cells:



But that wouldn't explain quantum entanglement. How could two separate volumes of space exchange information without going through the quantum grid?

I have been an advocate of this concept (or similar) for a while now. The issue is that most people think strictly of something like "water" when speaking about fluids, but its a bit more encompassing than that.

It does help reconcile some present issues, in a way, as well as some that may come up in the future. And, at least for me, it makes sense on an intuitive level.

It also introduces some interesting implications depending on its properties (unknown and known). I believe that once we really start to get a better handle on the next stages, we are going to start seeing some truly phenomenal and amazing technologies.

Not just whales and fish, but land animals (such as humans) and birds, too. The behavior of the air in our atmosphere is described by fluid dynamics.

Look at smoke from a cigarette through a sun ray across a dark background, and you will see it looks like liquid movement. Nice drawings of water movement were made by DaVinci if you want to compare.

So yes, the atmosphere moves like a liquid/fluid. Even sand and earth and rocks do, tho their movement is limited due to their weight/size combined to gravity's pull.

In space, whatever matter there is must follow a similar pattern of turbidity, like a fluid.

First to answer the OP title.




aquarium (n.) Look up aquarium at Dictionary.com
1830, noun use of neuter of Latin aquarius "pertaining to water," as a noun, "water-carrier," genitive of aqua "water" (from PIE root *akwa- "water"). The word existed in Latin, but there it meant "drinking place for cattle." Originally especially for an artificial pond growing aquatic plants. An earlier attempt at a name for "fish tank" was marine vivarium.

The higgs field could be considered a 'fluid';


The Higgs field is an energy field that is thought to exist everywhere in the universe. The field is accompanied by a fundamental particle called the Higgs boson, which the field uses to continuously interact with other particles. As particles pass through the field they are "given" mass and, similar to an object passing through treacle (or molasses), will become slower, and cannot travel at the speed of light because they have mass.

Mass itself is not generated by the Higgs field: the creation of matter or energy would conflict with the laws of conservation. However, mass is "given" to particles from the Higgs field via the Higgs bosons, which contain the relative mass in the form of energy. Once the field has endowed a formerly massless particle the particle slows down because it has become heavier.

If the Higgs field did not exist, particles would not have the mass required to attract one another, and would float around freely at light speed. Also gravity would not exist because mass would not be there to attract other mass.

The process of giving a particle mass is known as the Higgs effect. This effect will transfer mass or energy to any particle that passes through it. Light that passes through it gains energy, not mass, because it is a wave.


Air is even considered to be a fluid as it acts like a fluid.

Whales and fish swim in LIQUIDS, silly me

A Fluid is a substance which offers no resistance to shear deformation and will continue to deform when subjected to shear force. Example of fluids are water, oil, air, gases and vapours etc. Fluids may be classified into two categories :

a) LIQUIDS

b) GASES including vapours.

Liquid occupy a definite volume and are not affected appreciably by compression or the change in temperature. Water is an example of liquid.

All liquids are fluids but not all fluids are liquids .

Thanks

Although Lord Kelvin goes on to suggest that these electrions interact with an inverse square law of force, he doesn’t appear to suggest that this fluid is dielectric. In a sub note at the end of his article, he does however acknowledge the inverse cube law of force that would ensue in the vicinity of an electric dipole, but in this case he seems to be talking about atoms of ponderable matter. Whatever, Lord Kelvin was not far off the idea that space is densely packed with electrons and positrons.

In 1930, Paul Dirac postulated the “Dirac Sea” as a model of the vacuum. The Dirac sea was not intended to be the medium for the propagation of light, but nevertheless, no matter what the intentions were, or however cryptically the concept was explained, it invoked the idea that electron-positron pairs could somehow be produced as a result of some underlying physical mechanism within the vacuum.

Time dilation presents we are traveling through a medium that can be interpreted as a fluid.

In this case the resistance would be the inherent effect to traveling that fast.
