I hope this prose rendition is conceptually understandable. Regarding the difficulty of empirically measuring the B(3) field. I suggest it is masked by the Copenhagen uncertainty principle. Do you think this is a valid argument: If the photon was massless c would be infinite?
I have developed a ‘continuous-state’ cosmology. Beginning with work I did with Vigier on integrating gravity & electomagnetism (The paper is in the 2000 Berkeley Vigier III conference proceedings). Vigier chose to ‘fix’ one of the coordinate systems and then use the Dirac polarized vacuum to perform the G-EM integration. Some years later utiizing an idea by Kafatos where R-dot = c (the rate of change of scale in the universe) applied not to a Big Bang expansion but instead internalized to a ‘continuous-state’ process, I then alternated the fixing of the G-EM coordinates. One salient interpretaion was that photon mass was not uniform, but periodic – occuring only during a moment of vacuum coupling (with the standard idea of internal motion). Thus photon mass oscillates from zero to a mass moment (This paper is in the 2nd Vigier proceedings). To my way of thinking one could derive a ‘beat frequency of spacetime based on this oscillation.
For our purposes the B(3) field would be zero at moment of zero photon mass and difficult to measure empirically without this understanding.
In the 8th Vigier proceedings I have designed several experiments to measure/mediate the B(3) field by utilizing a polarized Dirac vacuum resonance hierarchy that surmounts the uncertainty problem. In this model wave-particle duality is elevated to a principle of cosmology. Without this concatenation of postulates the experiment would putatively not work. It is a 12D model utilizing extensions of Cramer’s Transactional Interpretation and the de-Broglie-Bohm-Vigier Causal Interpretation. It (the Continuous-state) also relies heavily on Calabi-Yau mirror symmetry.
Now regarding reduction to absurdity. M-Theorists seek one unique 4D compactification. Regarding myron’s comment (in terms of contact geometry) in the 12D continuous-state (C-S)process there is a ‘spin-exchange C-S dimensional reduction process’ alternating even to odd D. 12D to 0D and back with inherent flips of Riemann sphere topology. M-Theory is now cast in 11D the 12thD here is like a super quantum potential or pilot wave synonymous with the Unified Field.
As the tools of quantum mechanics were invisible to classical mechanics so have the tools of unified field mechanics been invisible quantum mechanics. This addition to Evans model promises empirical access to the 3rd regime of reality
