Classical Modeling vs Mathiness

classical model and the reduction to analogy to experience necessary for universal commensurability

the value of a model for subsequent association, induction, and deduction.

WTF From Michael

More  on the statement made that the quantum world can be modeled classically.

1. The quantum model of the status quo (from Bohr-Sommerfeld-Born model thru QED Feynman and QCD Gell-Mann) says that no known causal mechanism leads the location of a particle to change. Our equations model the probability it moves to another point. When seen at our scale and in aggregate, the weird outliers cancel out and we see classical behavior
2. Now consider the Ether/Quantum Field theory that it’s a liquid made of little balls that have a N and S pole, or “dipoles”. A larger particle like an electron, moving thru a large space full of this fluid made of dipoles.
3. Such motion we see with pitchers throwing a baseball. With the case of air, the spin of a pitch allows it to travel relatively straight (subtracting out the gravity). But if the pitch does not spin, a knuckleball, and the path of the ball introduces randomness
4. The analogy stops there as the baseball has no charge, the electron does, and the air also has a specific range of fluid pressures that it can apply which has to do with the wave mechanics of acoustics (to throw a pitch past terminal velocity means that the air would have to experience compressions it can’t do, it’s not that elastic, hence the drag force sets the maximum speed), whereas since the quantum background made of dipoles, we might not be able to model the background with air, or water, or some other Newtonian fluid. (You can look up non Newtonian fluids which have inverse relationships regarding pressure and compression)

Modern physics assumes both spacetime and the Bohr-Feyman “shut up and calculate” quantum model. The existence of black holes are entirely predicated on both of these models.

To restore causality, we’d switch out that model to that of an unknown quantum liquid-gas background, with elements we don’t observe yet. When high mass objects interact with this field, the field bends light more than when the field is empty (light travels straight). So gravity really is a kind of magnetic attraction to light, as well as to mass.

Some will go so far as to reference the various electric-universe models like that of Tesla, and they may be fair game. In the current model they’re not fair game because mass is allowed to influence a COORDINATE SYSTEM.

Switch to classical mechanics forces physics to confront why a gravitational field affects an electromagnetic one, because there is no “change in the coordinate system” that gets hand waved away as a “bending of spacetime”
