The Living Force
I guess that term in the dream would then mean they were looking at a lot of different groups to try to explain the growing energy that still allowed for conservation of energy. I still think your conformal group works since the conformal group kind of allows a conservation of energy over all of time but you can sort of steal energy at some times and pay it back at other times. This I think really only works for a single universe/universe brane state and not so much for parallel universes that connect but it could still be useful maybe.The dream has also "torsion groups". I didn't know what they are, so I looked in Wikipedia:
"In group theory, a branch of mathematics, a torsion group or a periodic group is a group in which each element has finite order. All finite groups are periodic (cf. cyclic group)."
"One of the interesting properties of periodic groups is that the definition cannot be formalized in terms of first-order logic"
What such a group can have to do with parallel realities? Each soul, and there are probably infinitely many souls, has a finite number of reincarnations? Different for each soul? What would decide about the number of reincarnations for a given soul? Is it fixed?
John G. wrote "You can get torsion from the deSitter subgroup of the conformal group."
But in the dram it is not just "torsion", in the dream it is a torsion group - a completely different concept....
