Hi Todd i'm reading thru your links and notes and something of interest to me is this ... in 1996 Steven Lamoreaux was able to measure the Casimir's theory but only to within 95% of the result ... i.e. as far as i could understand there was always 5% of uncertainty in the experiment ...... do you have any thoughts of what the 5% uncertainty could be attributed to ? is it gravity? where as Casimir did not take gravity into consideration in his theorem ?

Gravity is not the issue, but the wave lengths are the issue to addressed coupled with the 'zero vacuum' that has not been perfected. In other words like in all experiments, there are energy wave lengths from current and historical exposure that will always affect an experiment and the scale is directly proportional or the smaller the mass the more the energy will affect each, yet in contrast higher mass collectives; as time passes entanglement increases.

In theorem, "h*c" is imperfect as a photon or base unit expressed of energy is flawed as Planck's constant is incorrect in that a disregard to the 'amplitude' is addressed as 'torque' or as the 'spin' of a particle (angular momentum). For example; a single atom releasing a wave length (suggested as a photon in the particle expression), propagates at a set wave length, the energy is "x" for that single release but when a mass of structures release a body of wave lengths, they may be the same based on structure as entangled mass but when multiple releases are in unison or harmony so to speak, the detected wave may length stay the same but the amplitude increases the energy/power of the collective output. 

This cannot be addressed by the 'spin' of a photon. There is no spin of a photon. The idea to view is each release has peaks and troughs of both magnetism and energy at perpendicular planes; a cross. To release 2 identical releases side by side; the question is; will these associate based on the association of the energy following basics in magnetism and energy. For example if we cause a flat surface of water to be splashed at the same time will the waves interact? Yes. Will there be areas of increased amplitude? 

In an aether model this can be shared as well, but no fluid can cause time to be affected or clearly said, the wave length stays the same and the amplitude increases. So in fact Casimir offers a setting to show both particle and aether models are flawed. No particle, no spin. Particle model; died. Time is entangled by the previous interactions and can cause affects without regard to this constraint. 

This shares that energy is more of an intent based on previous exchanges causing time to become interrelated within the experiment. What occurred to what prior is as important as the specimen isolated. Without history that 5% will always be and can be assessed as an 'uncertainty.' It's like trying to discern character with knowing history; good luck! Entanglement and Casimir are intimately related by the energy upon the mass and this also directly points to energy being electromagnetic radiation in all cases.

Hi Todd

ok can we back track a little ... just to allow my mind to wrap around this concept ... you say photons don't spin ... so this would mean they are waves and not particles as you stated ...

they way i see it is that in 3D it appears as a particle spin but of a higher order i.e. 4D it is a wave ... thus why the confusion of is light a particle ... a wave ... or both.... so what is actually a pulse ... e.g. is us pulsing in and out of matter ... is the wave cycle peaking and troughing ... so a sinewave in 3D duality is really a circle or sphere in unity ....

i.e. a circle is really 720 degrees and 360deg ... as we only are seeing half-of-the picture and not the full 720 degrees ... something rarely discussed is torsion waves .... however within torsion waves i visualise a "spin" ... i.e. light/photons spinning in spiral fashion .... so what is this perception of spin if it is not "really' spin ... galaxies ... milky way ... water down the sink hole ... tornado etc etc all spin ... one way or another .... so this spin is not really s spin ... it is an illusion of spin when really it is a wave ... waving at us ...

are we then talking about virtual particles as in the Feynman model ? .... it was hoped that quantum gravity would solve the casimir effect .... a past time favourite study of mine is symmetry breaking .... am sure you know this .... as all patterns in nature can only be derived when symmetry is broken .... and thus here we have the Casimir effect which actually proves this if i understand it correctly ....

that electromagnetic radiation is not symmetrical ... if it was there would be no casimir effect ... would then the casimir effect explain the curved nature of space/time ... curling ... and thus all matter spiralling .... i.e. a differential in radiation ... if matter is light frozen (or slowed down) ....

then the effect of gravity slowing light down creates a differential in radiation which then manifests as matter .... i.e. the difference creates the matter .... which then casimir effect seems to also explain this .... so my mind is thinking .... symmetry breaking = light harmonic differentials = casimir effect = matter (or our perception of matter) ... no casimir effect = no matter = pure symmetrical electromagnetic radiation = no perceived separation .... the 5% anomaly = mind = the observer influences the results / reality ??

Casimir Effect confronts Cosmological Constant

Gaurang Mahajan, *

It has been speculated that the zero-point energy of the vacuum, regularized due to the existence of a suitable ultraviolet cut-off scale, could be the source of the non-vanishing cosmological constant that is driving the present acceleration of the universe. We show that the presence of such a cut-off can significantly alter the results for the Casimir force between parallel conducting plates and even lead to repulsive Casimir force when the plate separation is smaller than the cut-off scale length.

Using the current experimental data we rule out the possibility that the observed cosmological constant arises from the zero-point energy which is made finite by a suitable cut-off. Any such cut-off which is consistent with the observed Casimir effect will lead to an energy density which is about 10 12 times larger than the observed one, if gravity couples to these modes. The implicationsare discussed.

Abstract — It has been recently remarked by Hollands and Wald that the holistic (local) aspects of quantum field theory fully explain the fact that the cosmological constant does not have the absurdly large value which is commonly assumed. There remains the quite different problem of why the cosmological constant leads to an absurdly small dark energy density when applying the field-theoretic Casimir effect to the Universe as a whole. In this paper we propose a local theory of the Casimir effect, following work of B.S. Kay and a recent paper with L. Manzoni , as well as the “cosmic-box” idea of E. Harrison . Baryons and neutrinos do not explain the numbers, but axions would.

and another explanation great fiscbeck
