The Hole Argument
The hole argument is an attempt to illustrate how spacetime substantivalism causes
errors in a large class of spacetime theories; by John D. Norton.
last substantive content change MAR 8 2004 The Hole Argument What is space? What is time? Do they exist independently of the things and processes in them? Or is their existence parasitic on these things and processes? Are they like a canvas onto which an artist paints; they exist whether or not the artist paints on them? Or are they akin to parenthood; there is no parenthood until there are parents and children? That is, is there no space and time until there are things with spatial properties and processes with temporal durations? These questions have long been debated and continue to be debated
The hole argument arose when these questions were asked in the context of modern spacetime physics
The hole argument seeks to show that this viewpoint leads to unpalatable conclusions in a large class of spacetime theories
The hole argument urges that spacetime substantivalism goes beyond those bounds
The hole argument was invented for slightly different purposes by Albert Einstein late in 1913 as part of his quest for the general theory of relativity
As a host for the hole argument, we will pursue one of its best known applications, the expanding universes of modern relativistic cosmology
An interesting case-study for ontologists and epistemologists.
last substantive content change AUG 27 2003 Holes Holes are an interesting case-study for ontologists and epistemologists
Naive, untutored descriptions of the world treat holes as objects of reference, on a par with ordinary material objects
(‘There are as many holes in the cheese as there are cookies in the tin.’) And we often appeal to holes to account for causal interactions, or to explain the occurrence of certain events
(‘The water ran out because of the hole in the bucket.’) Hence there is prima facie evidence for the existence of such entities
Yet it might be argued that reference to holes is just a façon de parler , that holes are mere entia representationis , as-if entities, fictions
‘A hole?’ the rock chewer grunted
‘No, not a hole, ’ said the will-o'-the-wisp despairingly
‘A hole, after all, is something
(Ende 1974/1985: 24) Hole representations—no matter whether veridical—appear to be commonplace in human cognition
Not only do people have the impression of seeing holes; they also form a corresponding concept, which is normally lexicalised as a noun in ordinary languages

Lethargic? Shell-shocked by life's little bombardments? You could try meditation
Or, if you prefer drastic measures, you could drill a hole in your head
The practice of making a hole in the skull, known as trepanation, has been around since the Stone Age
An instrument called a trepan is used to make the hole
You bandage yourself up and eventually the skin heals over, leaving only a small indentation to show for the hole in your head
But why -- with all of today's sophisticated therapies -- go for the hole? The idea is to pump up your 'brainbloodvolume, ' a term coined by Dutchman Bart Huges, the guru of modern-day trepanation
By opening up that hole -- a sort of do-it-yourself fontanel -- you reverse nature's wayward development and return your skull to its original condition
You'll feel good your whole life.' Sounds dreamy, but Halvorson wasn't always so blissed out

The Hole to Luck
An interview with self-trepanner Dr. Bart Huges as questioned by Joe Mellen.
The Transatlantic Review No. 23, Winter 1966-1967.
The Hole to Luck Interview with famous self-trepanner Dr
M: When did you decide to have the 'third eye'? H: In prison, having checked the mechanism by perceiving the cerebrospinal fluid in the back outside the central nervous system (after using the pressed-up method described in the scroll, ) I thought about making a hole at the base of the spine to let the fluid out, and while thinking about holes I realized that pressure was necessary to squeeze the cerebrospinal fluid out of the system
Then, having concluded upon the nil pressure inside the adult skull (in most people the skull seals between the ages of eighteen and twenty-two, ) I saw that any hole in the bony surrounding of the system would give the pressure back
But after a time I realized a hole in the spine would heal over so it had to be in the skull, where holes stay open

Black Hole Thermodynamics
An simple introduction to black hole thermodynamics.
Black Hole Thermodynamics Click to go to the JPU200Y home page
Introduction: 'Time and space are modes in which we think and not conditions in which we live.' -- Einstein 'Space is the order of coexistence, and time is the order of succession of phenomena.' -- Leibniz 'For the sage, time is only of significance in that within it the steps of becoming can unfold in clearest sequence.' -- I Ching Background Information One of the features of Hawking and Bekenstein's development of black hole thermodynamics is that it ties many many pieces of physics together
Finally, background information on black holes can be found here
One of those electrons can violate conservation of energy by spontaneously jumping into a positive energy state provided it falls back into the hole quickly enough
You will recall that we interpret the hole in the sea as a positron
Black Hole Thermodynamics We consider here one of Stephen Hawking's contributions to Physics
We imagine a black hole as the singularity in the center surrounded by a spherical event horizon .We know that when a black hole is created by a collapsing neutron star that the neutrons are crushed out of existence; by this I mean that all their neutron ness is wiped out

The experience of a person who had a hole drilled through his skull. Includes photos
of the procedure.
Diary Entry: 03-22-00 This weekend I had a hole drilled through my skull
I came to believe that the key to a permanent consciousness increase was a hole in the skull, to restore the full brain pulsation of infancy
I put on a shower cap (that had been washed with sterile wipes) and cut a square hole in it where the cutting and drilling would be done
He turned one of the bits over and tapped around in the hole
He had made it through to the meninges! I saw a video of this moment, and yes, you can see the brain pulsating! Now we just had to widen the hole
Minutes later, they were sure the hole could be opened no more before risking cutting scalp with the drill, so we were done
I would attribute most of the joy at being done with the whole affair, as it was months in the coming, and it was about a 3 ½ hour procedure overall
I immediately went to the bathroom after, cause Id been holding it in the whole time, and then went to my place to hang out, chill, and feel the effects
My major fear, even more so than a mistake happening, was that I might have to rush to the hospital and they mightve committed me if I told them how the hole got there
Orbits in Strongly Curved Spacetime
A JAVA applet which simulates the orbit of a low mass test particle orbitting a
non-rotating black hole.
Introduction The display above shows, from three different physical perspectives, the orbit of a low-mass test particle , the small red circle, around a non-rotating black hole (represented by a grey circle in the panel at the right, where the radius of the circle is the black hole's gravitational radius , or event horizon
But when gravitational fields are strong, as is the case for collapsed objects like neutron stars and black holes, Newton's theory is inaccurate; calculations must be done using Einstein's theory of General Relativity
For a black hole, Newton's theory predicts orbital velocities greater than the speed of light, but according to Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, no material object can achieve or exceed the speed of light
The Orbit Plot The panel at the right of the applet shows the test mass orbiting the black hole, viewed perpendicular to the plane of its orbit
When the test mass reaches its greatest distance from the black hole, a yellow line is plotted from the centre of the black hole to that point, the apastron of the orbit
In Einstein's theory, the inability of the particle to orbit at or above the speed of light creates a 'pit in the potential' near the black hole
