Matheology § 158

One user of transfinite set theory, i.e., a man who arrives where he

cannot arrive, is Mohamed El Naschie.

Then came the next quantum jump, around 1990, when M.S. El Naschie who

was originally working on elastic and fluid turbulence began to work

on his Cantorian version of fractal space-time. He showed that the n-

dimensional triadic Cantor set has the same Hausdorff dimension as the

dimension of a random inverse golden mean Sierpinski space to the

power n-1. [...] Sometime later El Naschie using the work of Prigogine

on irreversibility showed that the arrow of time may be explained in a

fractal space-time. A few years later two of El Naschie?s papers on

the subject were noted by Thompson essential science indicators as the

most cited New frontier paper in physics and as Hot paper in

engineering. {{That seems to come a bit too early. At the univeryity

of applied sciences Augsburg the theories of El Naschie have not yet

been taught.}} [...]

In E-infinity theory El Naschie admit formally infinite dimensional

??real? space-time. This infinity is hierarchical in a strict

mathematical way and he was able to show that E-infinity has finite

number of dimensions when observed from a distance. At low resolution

or equivalently at low energy the E-infinity Cantorian space-time

appear as a four dimensional space-time manifold. [...] The

eigenvalues like equation have a very simple interpretation: Dim E8 E8

= 496 represent all fundamental interactions. Thus it is equal to

particle physics 339 symmetries plus the R(4) = 20 of gravity plus

aleph_0. From that we deduce aleph:_0 = 496 - 339 - 20 = 137. {{The

correct value 137.036 has exorcized some number mysticist and

numerologist.}} [...] The author is indebted to the many members of

the fractal-Cantorian space-time community {{Cantor's idea of

countably many body-atoms and uncountably many ether-atoms gains new

impetus. The fatal Space-Time-Community grows, it seems, above all

limits.}}
