Not having been trained in physics at all, my intuitive search for the right description of physics repeatedly lands me into the circle of the picture of physics that originates in Williamsburg Brooklyn in 2008: that Ricci curvature of any three dimensional hypersurface can be interpreted as Einstein’s equation with stress-energy tensor the second fundamental form and cosmological constant and that the source of all quantum phenomena should be due to this ambient scaled 4-sphere. But since this time I had been slowly trying to learn more established physics and its historical trajectory in slow steps in order to find ways of testing my ideas in more orthodox educated framework. Steven Weinberg is the most articulate of the great physicists of the day and most familiar with the movements of physics from QED to 4 July 2012 discovery of Standard Model Higgs so it’s always a great pleasure to try to learn from the master. Here are his reminisces. To put things in context, I find parallel between the time of SW’s account of the period between 1950s pinnacle of QED and the chaos for weak and strong forces to the 1967 paper on weak forces which is one part of the pinnacle today of established physics the other being QCD. I think my intuitive picture produces a simple complement to this development of quantum field theory by considering the great missing link not in the intricacy of the quantum field theory in the small but by the question of geometry of spacetime. Dark energy and dark matter are both easy to explain as geometric error for example: dark energy is but the ambient curvature of a scaled four-sphere within which our physical universe is constrained to lie; the solution of the hierarchy problem is also clear in this context, and one can even re-interpret the redshift-distance of Hubble as pure geometric error in a curved universe. Nima Arkani-Hamed has made clear that Einstein’s, Dirac’s and Yang-Mill’s equations cannot be improved upon; and they are the wrong thing to look at for a perfection of physics. It is in the large scale geometry where physics is going wrong and not in the small so much. In a compact universe mass gap for Yang-Mills is obvious and there might be a re-interpretation of ‘reality’ of quarks when stable matter must have three principal curvatures and perhaps the issue of confinement is completely the wrong issue if quarks are not really particles, so maybe what we are calling ‘strong force’ is something of the strength of geometry of matter formation in the hypersurface-of-four-sphere universe.
