The message "Alpha collection" to news-group "sci.physics"
Steven B. Harris Development of upper method:
From the form sn=p2/2 to the form:
1/a = 137 (1 + k2), 
where k = p/(sqr(2)�137).
And further to form:
1/a = 137 [1 + k2 - k4 + k6 - k8 ....].
From the letter to news-group:
...It might be fun to fool around with some k terms which involve pi and 137, or p and 1/alpha, and see if you can get any that get closer to 1/alpha.  Power series like this are found in QED, and alpha is a dimentionless number, so numberology here is not as crazy as in the rest of physics.  We might even discover something empirical (like the Balmer formula) which later physics might "explain."...

The message "Re: Alpha collection" to news-group "sci.physics"
I. Gorelik, Steven B. Harris Development of two upper methods
s(n+ms) = p2/2
From the letter to news-group:
...our result: s(n+ps) = p2/2 with 1/Alpha = 137.035990750 is very interesting, and is deep inside of experimental values. It is very possible that expression s(n+ps) = p2/2 can be explained geometrically.
This is very near to surface of 4-d cylinder made by rotating electron in atom. pi/sqr(2) corresponds to base of cylinder in xy, and the same pi/sqr(2) corresponds to "height" of cylinder in zt. Cylinder is inclined to all axes x, y, z, t, so the exact expression for the left side of equation s(n+?*s) we'll find and prove something further, after studding 4-d pictures...

Here is my letter Golden Section and Alpha numbers send to the newsgroup sci.physics 01.16.2001.


Several days ago I tried to find the fine structure constant, which is ~ 1/137.036, but suddenly received the value of Golden Section, exactly. Does anybody know the relation between these numbers, as much as precise? If the relation would be simple and the precision is great, then we could find the precise value of fine structure constant.

Here is the way of my erroneous search of Alpha.
Alpha is the velocity of an electron in the hydrogen atom; let's denote it "a".
Velocity of light is 1.
When light made one revolve around the nucleus, the electron will cover only "a" fraction of circumference.
But modern physics must be a little modified. :)
Accordingly to Space Genetics particles do not exist constantly, but periodically flash in a set of dots, drawing so the trajectory of a particle.
Consequently, we don't know; is the electron rotated clockwise or vise versa?
Consequently, it can cover the "a" fraction of circumference or the "1-a" fraction of circumference.
If we take into account the SR!!!, we'll receive the equation:
2a^3 - 3a^2 - a + 1=0
which gives no Alpha, but generally known Golden Section number:
(sqr(5) +/- 1) / 2.
It is quite strange that in order to receive it I took into account the SR.
