Well, as of today, China is no longer that bad under the ruling of the Communist Party of China, except for lack of democracy. I am not going to praise the Communists yet, but I will not write a sarcastic science fiction about them, either. Neither will I write anything like that about US or anyone I am not too happy with. I just want a science fiction scientific and intriguing enough to be called science fiction. Otherwise, why not write about science or just fiction? Why combine them at all?
A while ago, I read this news update about long-finned pilot whales (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_animals_by_number_of_neurons), which contradicted with a page of my science fiction that talks about how mammalian intelligence is related to cerebral cortex neuron count (https://simplyjet.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/virgin-complex/). I give all sorts of hypotheses in my science fiction so long as they don’t contradict with known science. Sometimes, I miss a recent discovery, so mistakes happen. Well, of course, I still can argue that many of mammalian cerebral cortex neurons are still too dedicated to motion control, so the larger a mammal is, the more cerebral cortex neurons it needs for motion control. Hence, we have to focus on the neurons dedicated to general intelligence. Nah, it’s not worth the debate for the sake of a novel. I probably am going to simply write a whole new science fiction from scratch, still about Xia, Ying, but in a totally different context. I am sorry, but I really like that name.
I will focus a lot more on physics, just because my physics is much better than my biology. From a purely theoretical point of view, we can assume that the physical world is as perfect as a mathematical world, hence comprising of infinitely many dimensions. The reason why we perceive only 3 dimensions is that the photon in its massless mode is the only messenger responsible for long distance communication in the molecular world. Therefore, bosons, the exchange particles, dictate the number of dimensions in our perceived universe. The more dimensions our long distance bosons can access, the more dimensions we can perceive in our universe. How about the graviton? Well, we don’t even know how it interacts with other particles, let alone devising a mechanism to detect them. At the end of the day, a theoretical particle has to interact with known particles so we can prove its existence and as a result access higher dimensions. Access to higher dimensions is probably the only way to defend ourselves against a superintelligent alien invasion. We will need it for sure.
The photon in its massive mode decays very quickly in many of the known Feynman diagrams, whose exact quantum mechanism Feynman was unwilling to explain to us lest we leap beyond the already deadly nuclear warfare. Therefore, we still don’t know if Feynman was too intelligent or simply not intelligent enough. If latter, then the fear of nuclear warfare was indeed his worst and lamest excuse ever. This is why I keep on talking about the possible 2 modes of the photon, massless and massive, the latter still needing a genius in theoretical physics to formulate properly. By the way, Feynman didn’t believe in the existence of aliens. Don’t ask me why. I guess that for him the only way for humans to die was through nuclear warfare and he was doing a really good job in protecting us from killing ourselves. We really have to thank him, the father of QED!
