mass is an observable, hence the output of the observation process,
hence only appears when being observed.
Otherwise, in the absence of all observation it is masstime.
But note that I use "observation" as technically just
a pseudonym for photon interaction occurring, which is a little
"tighter' than the usual usage in physics. And that photon
interaction occurs whether a human or animal is around or not.
If there are no other living "observers", the
universe itself, so to speak, is continually and constantly
"observing" anything and everything at incredible rates and
incredible levels, in the technical sense I am implying.
At least that is my take on the old "if a tree falls in a
forest and there is no earů" conundrum.
I really like the way you laid out that "summary of key
points". Very well
done indeed. Am sending a
copy of this to Tony, so he can see it also.
Don't know if he will post it or not; if he decides to, he will
clearly list you as the person doing that very fine job of
very much for taking the time and effort to do that.
It's really good, and I appreciate it.
you for the kind words. So explain point #6 to me -- does mass only
appear when being observed?
a little more -- I don't have your latest fixes so it needs those -- I
can't find a diagram to illustrate masstime that is suitable, maybe
you have one. I didn't do justice to the title page -- that's
all for today
