Touching the Earth

Earthiness is suggested by this iconic image of planet.

For EthnoPhysics the Earth itself is assumed to provide reference sensations. The term earthiness is a catchall that describes any sensations or experiences that are specifically associated with human life our planet. So we expect that there are some feelings to do with terrestrial life that are known to just about everyone. For example, feeling the pressure of bodily contact with the floor. Or experiencing daily variations in lighting and temperature.

Reference Constants for Earthiness

  • Everyday human activities are assumed to provide a sensory background of miscellaneous events noted by  \Psi^{\mathsf{ Earth}}. This chain of events is used to make a binary description of the direction of time. The analysis is associated with historical order and summarized by the single number written as   \epsilon_{t}.
  • The distribution of quark types found in the terrestrial environment determines the energy of a typical quark in a typical sensory bundle. This quantity is known as Planck’s constant. It is a single number noted by  h.
  • The statistical relationships between different sorts of quarks in the terrestrial environment establish the components of the terrestrial metric. There are five unique correlation coefficients that presumably do not vary because the Earth is so large. So they present five constant numbers written as  k_{\alpha \beta}.
