Horn Torus Model

In the following we want to go a bit further into the model, but to emphasize it again: the horn torus model is neither a mathematical nor a physical theory,
it is not science at all, it is rather a symbolic, analogical representation, using allegoric visualisations of fundamental physical entities, playfully
aiming for different interpretations of fundamental processes, for an exciting creation of novel insights and for an amazing enhancement of existing
explanations. Don’t expect a stringent and structured scientific treatise, but note instead, that all statements remain on an ontological, epistemological,
philosophical level. *

The horn torus model is an attempt and a proposal to describe foundations of our 'real world' in an assumed manifestation as *unconscious universe* with
no properties others than mathematical. Constituents aren't space, time and matter, but only numbers in their simplest form: natural numbers, as complex
integers first, later - as required - easily extendable to quaternions, octonions, sedenions, again with integer parts each. Nested horn tori, dynamically
interlaced into one another, illustrate as eidetic geometric analogue, that numbers quasi are able to interact with one another and - e.g. by mutual
'annihilation' - to transform their *initial* continuum into discrete structures by a simple pattern generating process, leading to intricate results,
which are interpretable as entities or 'coordinates' of a dynamic but timeless space with striking analogies to our 'real world’.

We indeed possess mathematical descriptions for all realized physical processes and apply them very successfully, without any doubt, but no actual accepted
model of nature describes all in one big idea, no one comprises all aspects of experienceable ‘reality’, and furthermore - most important - there is a lack
of appropriate *images* which illustrate objects and processes in such a way that they match the human thought structure and mental capability
adequately.

Here starts the relevance of horn tori. The associated model tries to fill the lack of imagery, what most of us need for a good understanding. Dynamization
of horn tori, illustrated in an easily intelligible pictorial way, generates multifarious and sophisticated new properties, and there will open a
completely new mathematical world which bears the possibility to see and describe the fundaments of our ‘real world’ in a quite different and potentially
most comprehensive way. * Dynamic of space* is the magic word. Not in the sense of geometrodynamic, where our familiar three- or more-dimensional
space somehow is distorted dynamically. The space, we head for with the horn tori, is not spanned by dimensions, it is neither a Euclidean nor non-Euclidean
space, nor any vector space, not even in the sense of the abstract Hilbert space - it is spanned instead by continuously and dynamically changing
coordinates.

We dynamize the primarily static figure horn torus - I repeat that again and again, to emphasise the underlying principle - by introducing rotation around the main symmetry axis and revolution of the torus bulge around itself, detect the then emerging trajectories on the surface, observe their paths, which depend on the ratio of turns, let the horn torus change its size according to the ‘unrolled distance’ by the revolution, what again changes the mentioned ratio and the trajectories, then interlace different horn tori by nesting them into one another with common centre, interpret the superposition or mutual interference of trajectories as particle interaction, finally abstract from the three-dimensional space of imagination to the effect that we renunciate dimensions at all, which in common view span a physical space as container for physical objects, and - as quintessence of all previous mental efforts - detect that our new space is

That all sounds extremely intricate and artificial, and to realise, that the three-dimensional space (likewise all linear vector spaces!) shall be a man-made construct and not an a priori existing entity, seems to be difficult to place within the scientific community. But an open-minded unbiased readiness for broad familiarization with the allegoric images and processes, leading to a far-reaching abstraction from most traditional ideas, soon enables you to revel in new interpretations, perceptions, cognitions, and lots of aha experiences.

The dynamic horn torus model highlights and perhaps reveals big mysteries in our comprehension of ‘reality’, at least in an allegorical, descriptive sense for issues concerning intrinsicality of time, space and physical objects, continuum vs. discrete nature of space, metrisation of space, origin and cause for quantization, minimum values, constancy and maximum value of lightspeed, non-locality of quantum processes, entanglement, arrow of time, determinism, causality, ...

In our intellectual game we reduce the many (too many!) necessary components of the standard model to one single principle, which underlies all physical objects and processes as a unified mathematical structure or rule, by introducing graphically describable and imaginable all-embracing fundamental entities. But again: I want to emphasize, that the horn torus model is neither physics nor mathematics, and least of all it is esotericism or anything like ‘holy’ or ‘sacred’ geometry! It is a pure intellectual game to realize generally, that fundamental entities as representation of physical objects, processes, elementary particles, and space

Origin of the idea (in 1988) was the endeavour to find an analogously figurative visualisation of complex numbers, different from the well-known static Riemann sphere. Target was to illustrate

Main principle of the dynamic horn torus is that it rolls along an imaginary axis

These trajectories, ‘unrolling lines’ or cycloids show a particular pattern on the horn torus surface, according to the ratio of revolution and rotation, more precisely, to the ratio of their angular velocities. Here, in fig. 2, we show some trajectories for different ratios in a perspective view:

fig. 2

The examples in fig. 2 show trajectories for rational ratios (revolution : rotation). For ratios ≥ 1 they loop (repeat) after one rotation, for ratios ≤ 1
after one revolution. I call them resonances or * Lissajous figures* on horn torus surfaces. During unrolling along the axis, a horn torus
changes its size and therefore passes all possible ratios and all resonances as well. For small horn tori we see many revolutions per rotation and for
big horn tori many rotations per revolution. A kind of mathematical mirror is the ratio 1:1, and in the physical interpretations it will appear to have a
very special meaning. The related figurative object (fig. 3) is called ‘standard dynamic horn torus’.

fig. 3

To anticipate later considerations: the standard dynamic horn torus already *symbolises* some of the most fundamental quantities. For this *unit*
horn torus, we determine that *one* revolution represents Planck time *t _{P}* and the circumference of a longitude (meridian) Planck
length

The unit horn torus divides the set of all (infinitely many) possible horn tori into two parts. Those with ratio revolution : rotation > 1 have a smaller (down to infinitesimal) size, compared with this unit, and we see trajectories with more than one loop around the torus bulge per one rotation, while tori with ratio < 1 are bigger (up to infinitely large) with more than one ‘spiral’ around the rotational axis per one revolution of the bulge (compare examples in fig. 2).

The complete set comprises all horn tori, all sizes, and all ratios (but note, size and ratio are not independent, they are inversely proportional!), and we designate it as ‘fundamental entity’. A particular horn torus occurs exactly

To give an impression of the complexity, we now draw a simplified graph of this entity, represented by the ‘unrolling line’ in dependence of an increasing r, selected between ratios v(φ) : v(ω) = 10 : 1 and v(φ) : v(ω) = 1 : 1000, but not to scale and using rather rough differentials dr for the single steps (otherwise the lines would lay very densely). r is horn torus radius, v angular velocity, φ revolution, ω rotation. See again animation in link [2].

fig. 4

The related parametric form must be established for both parts of the entity separately in the following way (setting r = 1 for ratio
v(φ) : v(ω) = 1 : 1)

For case r > 1, r and ω increase with φ, starting with φ_{1} = 2π,

and according to r = φ / 2π (↝ r_{1} = 1), ω = r·φ = φ^{2} / 2π (↝ ω_{1} = 2π),
we have

x = (1 – cos(φ))·cos(φ^{2} / 2π)·φ/2π

y = (1 – cos(φ))· sin(φ^{2} / 2π)·φ/2π

z = sin(φ) · φ/2π

For case r < 1, 1/r and φ increase with ω, starting with ω_{1} = 2π,

and according to 1/r = ω / 2π (↝ r_{1} = 1), φ = ω / r = ω^{2} / 2π (↝ φ_{1} = 2π),
we have

x = (1 − cos(ω^{2} / 2π))·cos(ω)·2π/ω

y = (1 − cos(ω^{2} / 2π))· sin(ω)·2π/ω

z = sin(ω^{2} / 2π)· 2π/ω

The parametric forms show mirrored conditions, so, as already mentioned, the unit standard dynamic horn torus indeed is a kind of mirror within the new
mathematical world, and likewise, as physical interpretation, it separates the big ‘outer’ world, consisting of electrons and photons from the small
‘inner’ atomic and nuclear realm.

Next step should be, that we interlace entities into one another, maintaining a common point for all, namely the point S (S for symmetry or singularity),
the centre of all nested horn tori. But alone the complexity of one single entity indicates that this endeavour appears to have no prospect of success,
when we apply common mathematics only. But it could be worse. For our aim, to get an idea of the model, it is enough to understand the principle of
nesting two or a few horn tori into one another. As first impression here two (fig. 5, animated in link [5]) and twelve (fig. 6) nested horn tori:

fig. 5 → coloured

fig. 6 → coloured

(a 65° wedge is removed to highlight the nesting)

The dynamic, however, as most important intrinsic property of the model, cannot be described properly and comprehensively by static depictions like the
above ones. We need moving pictures, animations, simulations for an adequate presentation of dynamic. In this printed publication we have no choice but
to provide links to respective webpages, where such animations can be viewed.

The linked animation [2] shows a wide section of a single entity in a coarse, simplified
depiction of the dynamically uncoiling horn torus coordinate. The ‘unrolling line’ starts parallel to longitudes on a very small horn torus, forms
Lissajous figures, when passing rational ratios revolution : rotation, which are shown as ‘resonances’ with short stops during increase of size, and
approaches infinite size with parallels to latitudes, without resonances. The animation possibly might lead to the following:

**Physical interpretation**

Sharp resonances represent fermions, the sections between them bosons, and the lines without any resonances on big horn tori (ratio << 1) are photons.
In this way all kinds of elementary particles are beaded on one thread, within one single coordinate, forming a unique ‘fundamental entity’. What appears
to be a ‘particle’ is only the ‘local’ property of the much more comprehensive entity at a specific ‘location’ in the horn torus space. What we describe
as a nucleon here, is an electron there, farther away a photon, and simultaneously a completely different ‘particle’ of the same entity elsewhere.

Now we combine another or more entities with a singled-out entity by nesting them in their common point S. Place of ‘interaction’, where a horn torus
unrolls on a trajectory, always remains this centre. It is the ‘spatial point’, to which any ‘particle’ in the universe is connected as one portion of
its individual ‘entity’. All infinite many ‘particles’ of the universe are represented in every ‘spatial point’. Every horn torus shares the common
tangent with all other horn tori, when they are nested into one another at their centres. Size of a horn torus symbolises the ‘distance’ to the location,
where the associated entity (the dynamic coordinate) converges to size zero. Different ‘spatial points’ differ in the combination of horn torus sizes.
All combinations with *natural numbers* (explication for that see links below) of sizes are possible, forming an infinite-dimensional regular pattern.
All paths through this *discrete* pattern (space) are equally possible, and *every* horn torus can unroll at a trajectory formed by *any*
other horn torus as interaction at *any* ‘spatial point’.

This space is by its definition a multiverse (due to infinite many paths) with *non-local* correlations between ‘particles’. A limited neighbourhood
of every ‘spatial point’ contains the complete information about one selected universe. With this property one - by the way - immediately recognizes the
possibility that big bang has not started out of one tiny spot but rather took place all-over a pre-existing just one-dimensional infinity. Much more
information you will find on linked websites.

* Remarks

• In conventional, familiar mathematics and physics, the static horn torus serves as an extension of the well-known Riemann sphere. The existing
bijective conformal mapping between both (discovered by me 2018 [6],[7]) distinguishes the horn torus as a member of complex manifolds. So, wherever you apply the
Riemann sphere in theoretical physics, you may replace it by the equivalent horn torus and instantaneously gain a lot more properties of the described
object!

• In retrospect, with a view onto history of science, horn tori could be associated with the ‘ur-alternatives’ by C.F.v. Weizsäcker, but also with
spinors, Penrose’s twistors, Lie groups and all related - also current - symmetry considerations.

• The (allegoric or analogously figurative) dynamic horn torus model primarily only provides ontologically relevant interpretations. These can be used to
justify and substantiate a philosophical worldview that can be assigned to subjective idealism or constructivism, and on the basis of which both axiomatic
mathematics and phenomenological physics are regarded as *not* real (independent of consciousness). As first conclusions, among others, one perhaps
could state these:

- There is *no* empty space in which physics takes place. Complex dynamic processes *generate* the space, an idle state (statics) does
*not* occur.

- There are *no* ‘dimensions’, neither a Euclidean nor non-Euclidean space, nor any vector spaces, not even in the sense of the abstract
Hilbert space.

- Time is *not* a basic physical quantity, it is included and identifiable in the model, but is redundant and reducible to more fundamental
quantities.

- Without a consciousness that describes them, there are *no* individual, independent ‘physical objects’, especially *no* isolated or
*isolatable* particles.

- *All* entities, i.e., all ‘particles’ too, are connected (linked, entangled) with *all* other entities or ‘particles’ of the
universe and ‘interact’ with each other.

- Interacting means being dynamically interlaced, constantly measuring and comparing each other and *deterministically* integrating into an
entirety.

- The universe is an orderly, mathematically describable network, a regularly structured pattern, the mere structure of an *a priori existing
mathematics* [8].

- A consciousness uses its special senses to pick out only very small parts of this abstract mathematical pattern from the comprehensive total
of processes.

- All described properties of what is perceived are *interpretations* by the perceiver, generated by subjective mental processing.

• After science for centuries ignored the existence of the geometric figure horn torus completely or neglected its relevance unduly - nearly nobody
realized, described and applied the exceptional topology, maximum symmetry, high complexity and creative capabilities of this unique object - it now, in
recent years, increasingly appears in publications, mostly in context of particle and quantum physics and in connection to cosmological questions. The
subject is developing and promises to stay exciting for a good while.

• Postulation as a consistent theory, based on the horn torus model, will be an ambitious project for physicists in the future, after mathematicians
and computer programmers will have established methods to handle that dynamic. I'm afraid we need a different, perhaps disruptive, ‘fundamental’
mathematics.
