Scale Symmetry

The particle theory is on the
way out. The LHC hasn’t produced the kinds
of particles predicted.
The new buzz is Scale Symmetry.
They’re just looking for a likely
candidate:

Meanwhile, as some of you might remember, I’ve been arguing that galaxies
and atoms are the same thing but for size, and using
the idea to show how a Benzene Carbon can share three electrons
equally between its two neighbours:

I like the new ‘scale symmetry’ idea. I’ve got
a leg up on it already. But I wrote to the
various authors and no-one has repied.

What’s that about?

But “scale symmetry” is not really the fundamental issue. They are realizing that mass stems from formerly thought to be massless “bits of existence” (not really particles). So they are half right. Symmetry has nothing to do with it, especially not “scaled symmetry”, but mass really does arise from the “massless”, (although to be more precise, there is no such thing as being massless and that is where they went wrong).

This is where the thinking seems so easy but it’s not.
He’s saying that everything is process, even the Higgs,
and there’s always smaller processes underlying everything
no matter how small.
So, yes, there is no such thing as nothing.
If you look small enough, you find that we are
in a sea of energy, and if you look smaller- atthe processes supporting
that sea- you find another sea.

And all these processes must
fit together- the under creating the over- like Russian dolls.
There is a recurring symmetry- atoms and galaxies.

I agree that you can always go smaller and find more. But I have to disagree that you find the exact same forms as you had before. They will never, ever find atoms (for example) below the scale of sub-atomic particles. It is a logical impossibility, not merely an empirical theory.
