Hitoshi,

It will probably come as no surprise to you that I have,

up until a week ago, been under the impression that

relativity is the "real" way things change. I have been

assuming that the deflection of light near the limb of

our sun is the "reality" that we must accept as the

objective way things change. This was more than a

belief, it was a state of mind. In short, you have

convinced me that exactly the opposite is in truth

more consistent.

That is, that relativity is a description of subjective

change and that QM and general change in our

environment dictate that the objective change is

really controlled by the exponential function (or

something very close to it).

In fact, after our discussions of change, I came

down with some mysterious ailments (clamy hands

and sleeplessness) and I did not immediately

realize that my world was not falling apart, but

that I must simply accept that my notions of

objective and subjective in relation to physics

had become reversed. This realization is what

recovered my health and helped me understand

that the "paradigm shift" of my thought placed

my paper in a subjective realm, not an inconsistent

realm. To my credit, I did not resist this reversal

very long.

That page02a was included after someone

requested that I make at least one assumption

to get readers on track. That is, 1/(1-x) is not

a solution of the PDE of change, but a require-

ment for the relativistic change that we actually

observe. Your orthogonalization of QM and

relativity is the concept that I hope will get me

back on the track of a consistent extension of

my mathematics from cosmology to QM.

Please respond to my questions concerning

Faster That Light propagations as to its being

objective or subjective, or such.

Sincersly,

Bill
