Tempt Destiny Initial Findings Presentation

Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System

Is This The End of Science And Religion As We Know It?

Why have scientists from all over the world been reviewing the findings of the Tempt Destiny experiment and why does this brief News Release about the findings have scientists so concerned? Could the flaw revealed regarding the scientific method mark the end of speculative scientific discoveries?

Since we can not act in violation of the laws that govern our existence and we now have unambiguous empirical evidence that there are only two such laws, how can there exist a deity that is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient? Either nature's two origin laws are not necessary for our existence, which can be tested via the Final Selection Thought Experiment in real life (see below), or our beliefs of a single origin are wrong.

WARNING: Since the findings are unambiguous, opinions of what we thought we knew will now need to be revised like when it was discovered that the Earth is not flat or at the center of the universe. If you are not able to handle such information, you need not read any further.


How Art, Football Fans, And The Big Game Helped Discover Einstein's Nonlocal Hidden Variables

This is a true story of how football fans and the SB helped me to discover Einstein's nonlocal hidden variables or what some might call the origin variables of first cause. In layman terms, the unambiguous findings confirm how events are caused are indeed predetermined. In physics, the findings confirm that the universe is super-deterministic.

I once asked a five year old child if she knew what an experiment was. She replied, "To test something". I then asked her if she could do an experiment without first choosing to do so? She looked at me puzzled, and then replied with a sharp tone of sarcasm, "Of course not. What kind of stupid question is that?"

Indeed, it would be unfortunate to overlook how fundamental the acts of selection are to conducting a simple art experiment as conducted here at and even more so if conducting a multibillion dollar science experiment. As the five year old child clearly understood, you cannot conduct an experiment, any experiment, without first making a selection. This simple premise served as the construct of the Tempt Destiny experiment. The unambiguous empirical evidence obtained from this experiment has confirmed that the mechanics of selection are predetermined in nature. When I began this experiment I believed that we have free will. However, the findings show that my opinions of free will meant nothing when it comes down to nature itself. In other words, the unequivocal empirical findings show that free will is an illusion. Allow me to explain.

From 2000-2012 football fans voted 24/7 online each year to have their team on the next Tempt Destiny billboard in support of their team's SB bid. The two previous billboards I created prior to the experiment were in support of SB XXI, and SB XXV championship victories, a two-for-two record that served as the benchmark for this experiment. I wanted to see if a selection made without me would obtain the same effects as twice before. In order to do this, the team with the most votes would determine the selection event. Since you can't support a team's SB bid if they will not be competing, the selection made also needed to pair with the potential of that team competing in the SB. The pairing event of an act with one potential state is what I call a direct selection. In the last three years of the experiment, I added the option if the direct selection event did not occur then an indirect selection (pairing an act with more-than-one potential state) would be made if one of the two SB bound teams had more votes than the other. As the unambiguous empirical evidence has shown, the two acts of selection are mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive dichotomies, as such, requires the simultaneous existence of both a selection and their potentials for either dichotomy and their subsequent effects to come to exist.

Because these acts are fundamental to our existence, you do not need to have an opinion from a scientist or conduct multibillion dollar science experiments to understand what a five year old child easily understood. Case in point, the findings show that energy and the two acts of selection are one and the same. So in order to prove that the findings are invalid simply conduct one of the following:

  • Conduct any experiment without first making a selection. (five year old child figured this one out)
  • Make a calculation without first making a selection. (so much for the universe being built on mathematics)
  • Continue your existence on this planet without making a selection. (Final Selection Thought Experiment)

Let's say that one morning upon awakening you find yourself absent of the ability to choose. This means you cannot choose to move your body whatsoever. You cannot choose to take in any fluids. You cannot choose to take in any nourishment. You cannot choose to relieve yourself, et cetera. Nor can you have others indirectly choose for you. The outcome is absolute. The effect of a physical system to no longer have the capacity to make direct selections is certain death. The assumption that selection is some sort of option, a freedom of will, is unsubstantiated by the fact that this predetermined mechanism we call choice is how energy works, which is a fundamental necessity, not a metaphysical option, of our physical existence. In other words, when the origin variables of selection come to exist, energy exists, for they are one and the same. As the findings show, we have the ability to choose because we do not have the ability to not choose in order to exist.

Assumed Higgs Boson Discovery Proved Einstein Right


Is Particle Physics Valid? - Crime Scene Investigation

The cornerstone of the scientific method necessitates that cause of a predicted effect is singular. If cause is not singular, then predicting effects to establish cause will always be ambiguous regardless of repeatability.

The scientific method is based on the logic of causality being effectual. It uses prediction of effects in order to obtain empirical evidence to substantiate its theories. This method of investigation is no different than assuming that all brake-ins (effects) are caused by burglars (effects), i.e., effect causing effect, which places effect prior to cause. For example, you come home after a weekend holiday to find your front door has been broken-in (effect). You call the cops to launch an investigation to find out who violated your domicile. They arrest a known burglar (cause) living next door who couldn't account for his whereabouts at the time of the break-in. He even has some of your stuff that you forgot you loaned to him and BINGO - case solved!

Later, you find out that a family member, who had been drinking heavily that weekend, had broken into your house realized that he was at the wrong house and decided to go to his home without telling you of what he did.

Without knowledge of cause you can only make assumptions. In a peer reviewed fundamental physics journal article "Assumed Higgs Boson Discovery Proved Einstein Right", I applied this knowledge which revealed an omission error in the empirical method of conducting particle collision experiments. Without knowledge of how the particle collision effects were caused, data obtained without such knowledge is ambiguous and thus subject to speculation (see "The Challenge" link).

The multibillion dollar Large Hadron Collider (LHC) built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008 was constructed in such a way that empirical evidence obtained is unavoidably bias by omission of which type of selection event (direct or indirect) caused which particle collision effect, an error that can only produce inconclusive evidence. This means that the LHC cannot be used to validate various theories of particle and high-energy physics for which it was designed. Yet somehow, the LHC was used to validate the discovery of the Higgs boson (a.k.a. God Particle) in 2013 which also gained the Nobel Prize in physics that same year?

For the Higgs boson discovery to be valid, particle collisions must take place without a selection event first being made in order for there to be no bias by omission. When CERN physicist, Adam Jacholkowski, was challenged to prove if such an event could indeed take place, he responded:

"@ Manuel You write, " prevent the particle beams from intersecting in order to prevent the selection events from happening. If you still have collision effects then the two acts of selection did not cause the particle collision effects and you would have proven my findings invalid." OK, but this is something we are doing routinely when the beam is lost accidentally, when testing the apparatus without beam (noise study), when collecting cosmics in our apparatus for the calibration purpose (alignment), when there is only one circulating beam in the accelerator (for beam-gas background study) etc. In all these cases we do not see any event of interest from the physics point of view that is we do not observe any kind of collisions. So what is your conclusion in this case?"

My response, "You have validated my findings". Indeed, as the five year old child clearly understood, an experiment cannot be conducted without a selection first being made. As confirmed by CERN physicist, Adam Jacholkowski, the same holds true for particle collision experiments which cannot take place without the selection event of two particle beams intersecting. And so by not accounting for which type of mutually exclusive selection event (direct or indirect) caused the particle collision effects, by scientific standards, a discovery cannot be made or founded on bias by omission.

Given the turn of events I am compelled to ask, is bias by omission the new accepted standard for scientific discoveries? If so, then why bother with the pretense of conducting experiments at all since such bias can only lead back to conjecture, not to the advancement of knowledge.

What this all comes down to is that science is built on a house of cards which is how it should be in order for discoveries to be made. The discovery of Einstein's nonlocal hidden variables has revealed that nature is indeed super-deterministic. Unfortunately, and by necessity, the implications of this discovery also compromises the very validity of science based on single cause (see - Without Knowledge Of First Cause Can Science "Correctly" Predict Effect?). Case in point, quantum physicist Anton Zeilinger's comment:

"[W]e always implicitly assume the freedom of the experimentalist... This fundamental assumption is essential to doing science. If this were not true, then, I suggest, it would make no sense at all to ask nature questions in an experiment, since then nature could determine what our questions are, and that could guide our questions such that we arrive at a false picture of nature." see – Superdeterminism

The good thing out of all of this is that science is not dogma and so can adapt to new information and correct itself accordingly as it has done in the past. The question is, with so much money, ego, and reputations at stake, will it?


2015 Condensed Matter Physics Convention

Due to the historical importance of the discovery of Einstein's nonlocal hidden variable, I have been invited to present my findings at the 2015 Condensed Matter Physics convention in Boston this upcoming June.

More news to come...


Without Knowledge Of First Cause Can Science "Correctly" Predict Effect?

general science journalThe unambiguous empirical evidence obtained in the 12 year Tempt Destiny experiment has revealed that there is a fundamental problem with the scientific method of using statistical ensemble as empirical evidence to substantiate scientific theories. As revealed in the "Assumed Higgs Boson Discovery Proved Einstein Right" article, in order for 'any' experiment to be conducted a selection must 'first' be made. Yet, as obvious as to the importance of the first cause acts of selection are to the existence of the events that follow, they are simply overlooked as cognitive acts (metaphysical notions) instead of mechanical acts and thus become hidden variables.

From 2000 to 2012, football fans were invited to vote online 24/7 throughout the entire year for their team to appear on the next Tempt Destiny (TD) billboard. The two previous billboards were in support of SB XXI, and SB XXV championship victories, a two-for-two record that served as the benchmark for this experiment. (Note, the artwork presented on the billboards was left unfinished so that if the team completed their season by winning the SB, the artwork could then be completed by painting the football silver to reflect the trophy won.)

Here's the catch: The team with the most votes would also need to go to the SB in order for the selection to be complete since the sole purpose of the artwork/billboard is in support of a SB victory. This pairing of a single selection with a single potential would then give us a direct selection event. In the experiment, a direct selection had been obtained each year. However, only once out of twelve annual attempts did the selection made pair with its potential (1), versus no selection pairing (0):

[000000010000] - Direct Selection Events

What this means is that the act of selection does not preexist because it is a part of a dichotomy which necessitates the simultaneous existence of its potential for the effect of a selection to come into existence.

In the last three years of the experiment, I added the option if the direct selection event did not occur then an indirect selection (pairing a selection with more-than-one potential) would be made if one of the two SB bound teams had more votes than the other. We had 3 out of 3 indirect pairing events. After reviewing the results of each annual experiment, if we had conducted only indirect selection events for the entire 12 year span we would have had 12 out of 12 indirect selections which would also include the direct selection event:

[111111111111] - Indirect Selection Events

Now lets factor in their effects. The effectual state of a selection of only one potential is certain/deterministic for there is only one potential selected (single slit). We had 3 out of 3 direct selections (2 prior to the experiment, SB XXI and SB XXXV) all with "identical" results. The effectual state of a selection of more than one potential is uncertain/nondeterministic for there are more than one potential selected (double slit). We had 3 indirect selections with "different" results (SB XLIV, SB XLV, SB XLVI). During the 12 year span we had 4 selection "pairing" events, 1 direct and 3 indirect:

[1011] - Observed Effects of the Selections made (not in order)

Without knowledge of cause, can you correctly guess which effect (1) was caused by the mutually exclusive direct selection? And even if you think you could guess correctly, how would you know since the effects from a direct selection or from an indirect selection will appear to be the same, e.g., [111111111111]?

Knowledge of statistical ensemble/data without knowledge of cause can only provide incomplete knowledge of reality for there are two mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive first cause variables in nature. The second cause logic of placing cause second to effects (effect causing effect) gives us a false sense of first cause (cause and effect). As it stands, empirical evidence based on the second cause logic of effectual causality or reasoning/beliefs based on effectual causality are indistinguishable in regards to validity for both are based on conjecture. In science, evidence based on an assumption is a speculation, not a discovery.


The Science

First Cause and the Theory of EverythingEnergy equals gravity squared

The Theory of Everything is a theory that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and predicts the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle. Since there has never been or ever will be an experiment conducted without a selection first being made, we can predict the outcome (determined or undetermined states) of any experiment that could be carried out in principle with absolute precision. When we apply this newfound knowledge of energy consisting of two mutually exclusive causal functions as exhibited in the "Spin States of Selection" article, we can then unify the states of spin, once thought to be exclusive to quantum mechanics, with the mechanical functions of direct and indirect selection in their proper order. In doing so, we find that the pairing characteristics of the two causal acts of selection correspond with the pairing characteristics (attraction) of gravity which in turn causes the effects of the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces. Thus, direct selection gives us the strong electromagnetic gravitational force and indirect selection gives us the weak electromagnetic gravitational force, which reconciles gravity with the laws of quantum physics to produce a complete and self-consistent theory of quantum gravity, i.e., the theory of everything, as one super-deterministic force — E = G2.

As theoretical physicists John S. Bell once predicted, "The only alternative to quantum probabilities, superpositions of states, collapse of the wave function, and spooky action at a distance, is that everything is superdetermined. For me it is a dilemma. I think it is a deep dilemma, and the resolution of it will not be trivial; it will require a substantial change in the way we look at things."

Perhaps it is time we look at things via cause and effect instead of effects causing effects in order to better understand our existence. With knowledge of what is first cause, the things that we thought we knew and the theories and ideologies based on second cause are now questionable. Obviously, I can only briefly touch upon the implications of the discovery of Einstein's hidden variables here for this topic would require a book(s) to try to attempt to encompass the ramifications of this knowledge. In the meantime, thank you for allowing me to share this discovery with you.
