Resume of accomplishments, creations, quirks, etc. of
John B. Wilson:
a scientist, mathematician, physicist, philosopher, programmer, poet, artist, explorer, hiker, adventurer, wanderer, and
allaround jackofalltrades... 
Ok, this should tell you kind of how old I might be... AOL quit hosting sites long ago  I had started mine back around 1996 :) 
A physics Derivation of Quantum Mechanics from
Special Relativity!, the Simplified
SRQM RoadMap version, and 4Vectors.
John B. Wilson is from Charlotte, NC and surroundings. John received
his B.S. & M.S. in Physics
(Georgia
Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA), (GA
Tech
Alumnus Info) and minored in Philosophy (SciTech) and Mathematics
(Computing). He never quite finished his Ph.D. in Physics (all classwork
done, just needs to finish a thesis), but may go back someday (unlikely  he will just have to live with an ABDAll but dissertation...).
He was and still is an idealistic (INTP),
but seems to be aging towards a more pragmatic (INTJ)x(INTP). He has spent time on a
number of interesting projects, including but not limited to:
The Science Realm Website + subpages,
being a perpetual student, esp. of science, technology, & philosophy; reading/browsing futuristic, hitech,
scifi, & fantasy; meditation; listening to contemplative music, from
New Age, like Enya, to intellectual rock,
like Rush;
computer programming [Access, Assembly

JavaScript, Logo, Mathematica, MS Office Apps, MS SQL, Pascal, Visual
Basic, WindowsAPI, & various other programming and application
languages (anyone remember the TRS80 Model 1?), fractals,
stereograms, raytracing, various graphics
(inc.
in
JavaScript!), Turkish language/grammar,
various general small business apps (database, spreadsheet, word
processing, financial stuff, website design, advertising graphics,
computer security, crosscommunication, networking, data backup, etc.),

computers (like 4Vectors, Sums
of Powers of Integers using Forced/Generative Induction ,Primes,
Science/Math Belief System);
running a small business (wearing all the different hats);
writing SciPan pantheist poetry;
trying to figure out how to get small children to clean up their rooms and
do their homework, as well as the more regular, meremortal types of IQ
puzzles, like Kryptos + Antipodes
+ CyrillicProjector , to which I
think I have solved the last part of Kryptos: Kryptos
Part 4, which got me interested in a Kryptos
Simulator, various Secret CodeSystems
& Ciphers, and creating my own Cipher/Code Challenge: RuneQuest
Cipher Challenge;
collecting/demonstrating science/physics toys/demos; collecting good quotes; attending Dragon*Con
in Atlanta, GA as an Eternal; enacting
random acts of kindness; snowskiing,
jogging, hiking, bouldering, biking, motorcycling (Honda CBR600f4i), geocaching,
archery, target shooting, RVing etc.;
enjoying the infinite wonders that exist in this rather chaotic universe,
etc..., basically just trying to perfect the body, mind, &
spirit... as time permits... which isn't often... BTW, did I
mention I like computing? Google & Wikipedia Rule!
John was working on a Physics Doctorate at GA Tech from 19911995, when he met his then wifetobe, Serpil. Serpil has M.S. degrees in Physics, Health Physics, and Physics Education. They were married in İstanbul, Turkey in 1994, and lived there from 19951996. They returned to the US in 1996 and began working at the family small business, FHS Supply, Inc.Manufacturing Superior Racing Oils & R/C Model Fuels, along with John's brother, David, who is also an Eternal at Dragon*Con. Serpil & John divorced in 2009, but remain (occasionally) on good terms. They have two wonderful children, Melike & İlayda, who do their very best to drive their parents crazy, and seem to be succeeding at it...;) In 2005, John began working at Austin International, Inc., (now Vision Metering LLC) a business that manufactures and refurbishes residential and commercial electrical meters, gas meters, and other large scale industrial electrical equipment. John is the IT Dept (IT Manager). (Programming, troubleshooting, DBAdmin, SysAdmin, BkUpAdmin, etc.) Some projects have included writing software to do the physics of proving gas flow meters, barcode scanning and generation, meter dial simulation, database access, many kinds of serial port communication, Automation programs for various metering devices, etc.
John is currently on (temporary? ) leave from his Ph.D. All that remains
is to finish his thesis "The NonTrivial
Overall Phase in Quantum Theory". Hypothesis: The overall phase of
the wave vector in QT contains the additional info necessary to determine
the outcome of a measurement. Measurements in standard QT are "random",
but the evolution of the complete system is deterministic. However, the
observer + system being measured are just a bigger overall system evolving
deterministically. The overall phase of the complete system is about the
only "hidden variable" , in the EPR sense, which has not been ruled out, I
think. Although we may not currently be able to measure phases of single
particles, nature is using them. This is, of course, not the currently
accepted theory. But just think about it: All the really cool quantum
stuff happens when lots of particles get in phase. If the overall phases
are nonphysical, then how do the individual particles get in step? That
everything is innately (nonlocally) connected seems too complicated,
considering that general relativity is considered to be correct. But, if
the individual particles can "detect" each others' overall phase and lock
in, that would make things simpleand very interesting...
However, now John has done more extensive studies on the relation between QM and SR. He now believes that QM is actually derivable from the postulates of SR. He is attempting to show that all of the "postulates" of QM are in fact principles that are derivable from SR.
Check out his Derivation of Quantum Mechanics from
Special Relativity!
See QM from SRSimple RoadMap
============================================================
Here is the short version:
Start with SR Physical 4Vectors:
4Position R = (ct,r)
4Velocity U = γ(c,u)
4Momentum P = (E/c,p) = (mc,p)
4WaveVector K = (ω/c,k)
4Gradient ∂ = (∂_{t}/c,∇)
Note the following relations between SR 4Vectors:
U = dR/dτ
P = m_{o}U
K = (1/ћ)P = (ω_{o}/c^{2})U
∂ = iK
Form a chain of SR Lorentz Invariant Scalar Equations, based on those relations:
R·R = (cτ)^{2}
U·U = (c)^{2}
P·P = (m_{o}c)^{2}
K·K = (m_{o}c/ћ)^{2} = (ω_{o}/c)^{2}
∂·∂ = (im_{o}c/ћ)^{2} = (m_{o}c/ћ)^{2} = (ω_{o}/c)^{2}
The last is the KleinGordon Equation, the Relativistic Quantum Wave Equation for Spin0 Particles.
This is RQM = Relativistic Quantum Mechanics,
derived from only standard SR 4vectors, 4 really simple empirical
relations, and the SR rule for forming Lorentz Scalar Invariants.
As one of my physics professors (Dr. Valk  GA Tech Physics) used to say:
"Once you have the Schrödinger Equation, you have Quantum Mechanics."
I would modify this just a bit:
"Once you have the KleinGordon Equation, you have Relativistic Quantum Mechanics.
The Schrödinger Equation, and hence Quantum Mechanics, are just the lowvelocity (v<<c) limitingcase."

A few creative accomplishments:
A physics Derivation of Quantum Mechanics from
Special Relativity!, the Simplified
SRQM RoadMap version, and 4Vectors.
Forced Induction, used to find the general
formula for the Sums of Powers of Integers, an innovative twist on the
mathematical concept of Proof by Induction.
An interactive assembly language IFS fractal program, Fractal
Origami, capable of generating "zillions" of fractal images yet less
than 1K in size. Not only are "complex" fractals defined by only a
few simple rules, here is the "complex" program defined by only a few
simple bytes.
The RuneQuest Cipher Challenge, an elaborate
cipher puzzle with an awesome enigmatic riddle, on par with (or IMHO
exceeding) the intricacies and difficulty of the Kryptos Cipher.
However, prior to this I had worked on a Secret
CodeSystems & Ciphers program while working on the Kryptos
Cipher.
A Javascript RPN Scientific Calculator using
complex math, based somewhat on the HP scientific calculators that I
used in college.
Some fairly decent ScientificPantheist Poetry,
putting some of my philosophy into verse.
HIDIMG Java, an autostereogram program
for displaying hidden 3D images, a rewrite of my original DOS program from
the late 80's.
BTW, given that I like to play with Prime
Numbers, I find it interesting that there is a theorem about primes
discovered by another John Wilson, a mathematician from the 1700's.
(perhaps a distant ancestor?)  it basically gives an alternate definition
of prime numbers.
1<p is prime iff (p1)! = 1 (mod p)  see John Wilson's Theorem from MathWorld, John Wilson's Theorem from WikiPedia
