Back Page, Quantum Geometry

 

George Sagi was born in 1925 in Hungary. He obtained his electronics engineering degree at the Technical University of Budapest. He received his M.Sc. degree and took post graduate philosophy at the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has studied sub-microscopic physics throughout his life. He is a life member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and APEGM (Association of Professional Engineers and Geologists of Manitoba). George has written several pioneering technical papers. He is a member of the Canadian Authors Association and the Manitoba Writers Guild.

Quantum Geometry, in contrast to Euclidean and Cartesian geometries, is based upon an extremely small sphere, a quantum, as its basic element. Several interesting findings are presented by the seventeen elementary rules obtained by assembling quanta in various configurations. One striking result of q-geometry is the definition of straightness without a hidden platform. Only straight q-lines exist within packed q-surfaces and these lines are at 60o 120o angles with one another.

                The philosophical parts of Sagiís book question the general validity of the Laws of Logic and the self-referential nature of Euclidean and Cartesian geometry. Q-geometry is developed relying on intuitionist logic, advocated by George Polya and Imre Lakatos. Another heuristic method is presented by Stephen Wolfram in his book, A New Kind of Science.

                It is interesting to observe that molecules and atoms in single layer membranes and specific crystal surfaces have arrangements similar to quanta in packed, nested, quantum planes.

                In the last chapter Sagi doubts the physical reality of string theories based on unreal one and two-dimensional models. He presents a model of massless, extremely small, spherical primordial particles that fill the void of space. The probabilities of their interactions and various configurations could explain the four forces of nature acting through a distance.
