Dear Quantoken,I don't agree totally where you said: "With billions of computer chips produced based on the theory of QM, you have to believe QM at least for the part that's responsible for solid state devices."But Big Bang and all it's so called experimental verifications does NOT stand up to careful scrutinies."I can't believe that you believe QM made computers. Computers and IC's were developed into successful, real products by people like Dr Arnold Lynch and Ivor Catt, who did not use QM. I'm a fan of QM for chemistry and nuclear physics like alpha decay (quantum tunnelling), but it isn't true semiconductors came from QM. The Cat's whisker was the first semiconductor and was used 20 years before Schroedinger. You find that QM provided ad hoc explanations for semiconductor theory, not a prediction or a recipe for making the technology.Dr Arnold Lynch, who corresponded with me from 97-2003 and died in Jan this year, was taught about electron theory by JJ Thomson. He was an experimentalist and electronics engineer and designed part of the first successful digital computer, which used VALVES or as you Americans say VACUUM TUBES. It was called Colossus and cracked German codes, helping the war in Europe. At the same time Lynch was doing that, Catt was a kid in Singapore when the Japanese invaded. He got into electronics because his dad was in the RAF specialising in electronics.He showed the interconnection of logic and cross-talk problems, see Catt home pageNotice I've written loads of articles in Electronics World mag about all this, sorting out Catt's theory with help from Dr Lynch and from Dr Walton (a former physics professor). But it is all ignored as crackpot, even though Catt's Kernal machine computer is a better more reliable bet than the similar but less reliable idea being touted in the November 2005 issue of Scientific American. Catt's computer has amazine implications for situations where physical reality can be represented physically as an array by the processor array of the kernel machine: so it can predict more reliably tornadoes, hurricanes, plus prevent air traffic control disasters including terrorism using planes. Notice that the big bang is dismissed irrationally, see Feynman gravity home pageFor background on explosion dynamics cover-ups see How about understanding explosions before dealing with the big bang and gravity? Or is real physics too arcane?The rest of your comments I agree with.Best wishes,NigelFeynman gravity blog

Catt had a scholarship to Cambridge, but did electronic engineering, and he writes:"I entered the computer industry when I joined Ferranti (now ICL) in West Gorton, Manchester, in 1959. I worked on the SIRIUS computer. When the memory was increased from 1,000 words to a maximum of 10,000 words in increments of 3,000 by the addition of three free-standing cabinets, there was trouble when the logic signals from the central processor to free-standing cabinets were all crowded together in a cableform 3 yards long. ... Sirius was the first transistorised machine, and mutual inductance would not have been significant in previous thermionic valve machines..."In 1964 I went to Motorola to research into the problem of interconnecting very fast (1 ns) logic gates ... we delivered a working partially populated prototype high speed memory of 64 words, 8 bits/word, 20 ns access time. ... I developed theories to use in my work, which are outlined in my IEEE Dec 1967 article (EC-16, n6) ... In late 1975, Dr David Walton became acquainted ... I said that a high capacitance capacitor was merely a low capacitance capacitor with more added. Walton then suggested a capacitor was a transmission line. Malcolm Davidson ... said that an RC waveform [Maxwell's continuous "extra current" for the capacitor, the only original insight Maxwell made to EM] should be ... built up from little steps, illustrating the validity of the transmission line model for a capacitor [charging/discharging]. (This model was later published in Wireless World in Dec 78.)"- Ivor Catt, "Electromagnetic Theory Volume 2", St Albans, 1980, pp. 207-15.
