ABSTRACT

A brief on Heim's Quantum Theory is presented.

INTRODUCTION

A recent translation of Heim's unified field theory, known as Heim’s Quantum
Theory (HQT), in a 2004 AIAA paper by Droscher and Hauser has renewed
interest in the work of Dr Heim. Dr Burkhard Heim is now deceased but in the
1950's developed an exhaustive unified field theory based on the metric
quantization of space-time that includes 12 dimensions and 6 fundamental
forces, 3 of which taken together form what is collectively known as gravity. It is
this latter feature of HQT that has raised immediate interest, but Heim's theory
has many other features that, should it ever be tested as valid, offer potential
insights that could be even more surprising. A summary of the highlights of HQT
are presented in the following notes.

THE 12 DIMENSIONS OF HQT

It is obvious to anyone that has experimented with basic static electricity or
magnetic fields that a description of physical reality as a 4-Dimensional (4D)
universe is incomplete. A 4D metric can at best be used to represent mechanical
motion in a universe occupied by only one force - gravity. The discovery of the
existence of other forces, including EM, Weak, and Strong forces require
additional dimensions.

In Heim's work, which predates string theory, Einstein's general relativity has
been extended in a way that expands the space-time metric by 4 dimensions,
and also adds 4 non-metric dimensions. A brief summary of Heim's dimensions
follow.

ST4

The ST4 dimensions represent those that are classically known as the space-
time metric. These can be decomposed as follows:

R3 = {x, y ,z} = {x1, x2, x3} = Spatial Dimensions
T1 = {t} = {x4} = Time Dimension

SI4

The SI4 dimensions consist of what Heim has termed "structure" dimensions and
"information" dimensions. While the meaning of these dimensions is not literally
identical to their names, there are a number of parallels. Among other functions,
these dimensions function to describe attraction and repulsion in the universe.
They are also metric dimensions in that they affect motion. These dimensions are
unique to Heim's formulation. The SI4 dimensions may be decomposed as
follows:

S2 = {x5, x6} = Structure Dimensions
I2 = {x7, x8} = Information Dimensions

G4

The last 4 dimensions in Heim's UFT are the "event steering" dimensions. These
dimensions may be understood as defining probability amplitudes across the
other dimensions. They may be denoted as follows:

G4 = {x9, x10, x11, x12} = Event Steering Dimensions

Listed among the properties of these dimensions are the following Hermetry and
Symmetry forms:

Hermetry Form: H5(T1, S2, I2) represents the flow of events.

Symmetry Form: S2 x I2 = 0 represents a kind of Ying/ Yang balance.

The symmetry form, for example, requires that the energy extracted from the
vacuum during virtual particle pair production must equal zero.

HEIM'S 6 FUNDAMENTAL FORCES

Heim's UFT also includes 6 fundamental forces, 3 of which are known and 3 of
which are components of gravity. The three known forces are:

1) EM (Electromagnetic) - propagated by the Photon

____________S__E__C__U__L__I__N__E_____C__O__N__S__U__L__T__I__N__G_____________


2) Weak Force - propagated by the Higgs boson

3) Strong Force - propagated by the Gluon

The 3 gravitational forces are as follows:

4) Gg (Scalar Gravity, or "Gravitonic") - propagated by the Graviton

5) Ggp (Dark Energy/Matter) - propagated by the Gravito-photon

6) Gq (Vacuum Field) - propagated by the Quintessence particle

Standard gravity G is the tensor summation of all three gravitational components,
i.e. G = Gg + Ggp + Gq

 In terms of relative strength, Gg is much larger than the other components. The
following ratios apply to their relative strength:

Gravito-Photonic Gravity Ggp = 1/(67)^2 Gg = [2.23(10)^-4]*Gg
Quint-Essenic Gravity Gq = [4(10)^-18]*Gg

POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS TO SPACE TRAVEL (Rev A, 2006)

Space propulsion may be achieved using gravitophoton field propulsion, which is
predicted to be a two stage process:

Stage 1: Sub-luminal travel is predicted via the acceleration provided by an
unbalanced pulling force generated through the absorption of negative
gravitophotons in the ship’s drive mechanism.

Stage 2: Super-luminal travel possibilities open up through the use of a positive
graivitophoton distribution behind the ship to create a pushing force that results in
quantum steps in reduced gravitational potential, in the speed of light, and is
therefore analogous to a warp drive. This is also described by Heim proponents
as a “parallel space” travel since there are different values for G and c within the
influence of the positive gravitophotonic field.

A space drive has been developed by Droscher and Hauser – see their 2004 and
2005 AIAA papers for more details. The drive consists of a magnetic field
generation coil, with a rotating torus mounted above it, to take advantage of
“Heim Lorentz Force,” i.e. photon to negative gravitophoton coupling.

PHILOSOPHICAL IMPLICATIONS

There are implications to both science and the humanities if Heim’s theory is to
be considered in its entirety.

Physical / Metric Dimensions - include "structure" and "information" dimensions

       - may resolve issues with entropy / thermodynamics

Symmetry breaking dimensions may make explicit the operation of free will in the
universe
       - may resolve issues with the "measurement problem"

Dimensions in which we can travel, dimensions in which we can communicate
information, and dimensions in which we can exercise our free choice, are all
described by Heim’s theory.


CONCLUSIONS (Rev A)

   •   Unparalleled in breath and scope – unifies science and philosophy
   •   Unknown how it relates to other leading UFTs –ties to the current physical
       theories (such as the standard model and quantum loop gravity) requires
       development
   •   Testability – Rev A: testability is described in a later 2005 AIAA paper, and
       may be testable at Sandia with their “Z-machine.”
