Is it possible to create an absolute vacuum?
Absolutes are always difficult things and there is very little difference between a very good vacuum and an absolute vacuum and very cold and absolute zeroThe first is very different from the second. According to some theories, the difference in energy density between vacuum and absolute vacuum could be responsible to the huge Dark Energy, which accelerate the universe's expansion.
It is an interesting speculation, and I have enjoyed reading contributors who have posted on this thread.
Absolute vacuums undoubtedly have a profound impact on the behavior of the universe, and I believe that in the not-too-far future it will be possible that absolute vacuums will transition from the merely theoretical to an observational level.
It seems reasonable to assume that absolute vacuums are not empty space, but volumes devoid OF space
Within such volumes temperature and time would not exist. The external universe does not like this, and borrowing a phrase from Benedict Spinoza, "Nature abhors a vacuum."
How does the universe express abhorrence? It implodes upon the AV in an attempt to equalize the pressure.
What is the nature of such an implosion? It is gravitational - which is interesting because it gives us a tantalizing hint of gravity in action without a corresponding quantity of mass.
What proofs can one point to that the implosion is gravitational? Consider a cup of stirred coffee. The differential of high pressure towards the side of the cup in contrast with the low pressure center produces a miniature distortion in space time, and a lump of orbiting cream will swirl around the center, obeying Kepler's second law of planetary motion, a clear hint that pressure differences contain a gravitational component.
It will be demonstrated that under special circumstances matter can configure itself to allow the existence of absolute vacuums, or non-space. This can occur in a high energy plasma imbued with a dynamo effect.
I predict that in an experiment where a gravitational sensor is placed in the vicinity of a z-pinch discharge, the plasma will exhibit an incremental increase in the force of gravity that otherwise cannot be accounted for.
