Zevatrons and the Packing Curve
6 Dec 2013
“Highly speculative” National Enquirer .
Anti-matter creation on commercial scale .
1.See discussions about changing physical constants if , as most likely , this universe is a simulation .
2.A finer grid for the sub-spacetime of the simulation will mean higher energies in the simulation .
3.This will mean that the nucleionic packing curve (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_binding_energy ) will shift to the right .
4.This will mean that stable isotopes of Iron like Fe60 ( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_iron) become unstable .
Ie radioactive . The next one up will become more stable . In quantal steps .
5.There are tried and tested , very sensitive tests for Fe isotopes ratio’s .
6. A Test for if we are in a Simulation :
Firing Zevatron guns next to iron should detect a change in the Fe isotope ratio’s , as well as beta-radiation .
7.If we are in a simulation (most likely) , then treat the “jerk” in the packing curve like potential energy .
Steer it towards antimatter formation using quantum technology .
You get the most bang-for-your bucks at the top of the packing curve (Fe60)
8.If you can figure this out ( a matter of technology) , then you can easily make about 700 kg of antimatter you need for a Alcubierre-style warp drive . See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_G._White_(NASA)
9. A teensy-weensy caution .
Firing Zevatron guns near Earth might lead to iron becoming radioactive . Worse , the planetary core is iron . Changing this into an uncontrolled radioactive substance will severely affect the heat-balance of the planet .
This is geek talk for baking it or even blowing it up , depending on the scale of energy release .
10. It looks like somebody on or near Earth is already doing it .
See changes in Gravitational constant http://andreswhy.blogspot.com/2013/11/zevatron-gun.html .
11. The Krypton scenario :
Just when a species figures out how to change physical constants , a few can flee . The rest wins the Darwin Prize .
12.Zevatron guns can be made in a high-school lab . So the Singularity better get a move-on .
Isn’t packing curves fun ?
