Glossary

Here is a list of terms, which emerge from the innovative work of Quicycle members, and with which you might be unfamiliar.


ABSOLUTE FORCE:
This is not an inter-action. It is just action. It is a force to which there is no resistance, a process that must occur. Example: If there is a changing electric field, there will be a corresponding changing magnetic field associated with it. It is a fundamental process of electro-mass dynamics.

ABSOLUTE RELATIVITY (A.R.):
The conscious restriction of thinking to only elements with the proper relativistic form.

HEDGEHOG:
The directed space-space-space volume element in MART. It can be outward-directed, like the spines on a hedgehog, or — a somewhat less comfortable image (for the hedgehog) — inward-directed.

INTER-ACTION:
The consideration of a complete quantum system, including source, observer, and that which is common between them.

M.A.R.T.:
The “Mathematics of Absolute Relativity Theory”
An evolving Clifford-Dirac algebra designed to encapsulate Absolute Relativity. It aims to develop to a solution of Hilbert’s 6th. It is named in memory and honor of founding Quicyclist, Dr. Martin van der Mark. (See Computational Tools)

PIVOT:
The scalar unit element in MART. It has the same physical dimension as the magnetic field but transforms as a rest-mass rather than a field.

QUANTUM INVERSION (Q.I.):
The underlying process of photon emission and absorption.

QUEDGEHOG:
The 4-dimensional analog of the “Hedgehog.”
Obviously.

QUICYCLE:
(Pronounced like ‘bicycle,’ but with a ‘Qu.’)
A contraction of the words “Quantum Bicycle.” It represents the turning, twisting, and tumbling motion of an elementary particle in free (4D) space-time.

‘SPANG’:
The process of a photon being reflected back out into space.
(If we could hear at the speed of light, it may also be the sound it makes.)

SUPERSTRONG FORCE:
The stupidly-strong force holding the electron together. (Formerly known as the ‘Poincaré stresses.’)
If you doubt it, smash an electron into a proton at high GeV and see who’s left standing. Unscathed.
