Paul Davies and Energy
Name: Robert B.
What was the first particle, energy, or definition of
zero energy. I have read a small section by Paul Davies on Zero energy
and how the universe is made up of negative energy (the gravitational
field) and the positive energy (matter) but what physical process
started the divergence and how did energy divide into + and negative.
I am not very familiar with Davies "theories"; however, his ideas strike me
as incompatible with conventional physics and cosmology. It has some of the
traits of voodoo science. For example, that gravity consists of "negative
energy" is not well defined. In what sense does this make sense? The more
radical the theory, the more liability the proponents have to provide
experimental evidence for it. I have not seen much experimental evidence. I am
just not a true believer.
