Seeing as this is the place to discuss theory I see no reason not to continue.

So how are you going to vary X4 to make energy? It's apparently a "dimension" that is outside the usual 4 in SR. How do you get to it?

What on Earth are you talking about? Of course dt is the same in any world!

The number of your unsubstantiated claims are starting to put you in "ban" territory.

Negative Energy State Reinterpreted in X4 Theory We talk about it in one dimension for simplicity. I point out in the article The Basic Mechanics for Anti Matter that the space(frame) of anti particle is mirror reflected in its own world to that in our familiar world: X1 = - X People might imagine that time t could be mirror reflected, and the symbols – t or d( -t) appeared in some lecture books. They seem meaningful in math, but they are meaningless in physics(or the real cosmos). I will interpret why after the detailed theory of time come out. Now, let’s turn to the negative energy state about particle in Quantum. The wave function for such situation of free particle could be seen in some lecture books: Ψ（x, t）= N exp( -i(Et – P•x)) E＜0 How it is reinterpreted with – t and d( -t), see those lecture books. Next, I reinterpret it in X4 theory. Ψ（x, t）= N exp( -i( - |E|t – P•x)) = N exp( i( |E|t + P•x)) = N exp( i( |E|t – P•（-x))） So: Ψ（x1, t）= N exp( i( |E|t – P•x1)) And we notice that the above representation is equivalent to Ψ（x1, t）= N exp( i(P•x1– |E|t )) = N exp(- i(|E|t– P•x1 )) The reinterpretation of the above wave function is: positive energy anti particle flows forward in time in its own world.

Interesting ideas, but wrong. What you are trying to do is a "parity inversion." But these leave time invariant. Under a parity inversion we take $\displaystyle x \to -x$ but $\displaystyle t \to t$. In order to get $\displaystyle t \to -t$ we need an extra time conversion.

In general there are three main transforms to "turn a particle" into an anti-particle. They are parity, charge conjugation, and time inversion. (Charge conjugation turns a particle into an anti-particle.) This is known as the CPT theorem. Under CPT symmetry anti-particles look like they are following the reverse path that a particle would take. So if we have an electron traveling at speed v under the CPT symmetry we would have an anti-electron (a positron) traveling a speed -v with the coordinate system transforming as $\displaystyle x \to -x$.

For this symmetry we have that the electron has a positive energy and so does the positron. There are no negative energy states in Physics.

My point is that there are no negative energy states. This is not a matter of opinion but verified fact. Anything like a negative energy state falls into the same class as tachyons... So far as Physics is concerned tachyons don't exist either.

The whole idea behind the CPT theorem is to calculate a particle state that is a mirror to the particle. So we need to invert the spacial axes (called parity, P), we need to invert the time axis (called a time inversion, T), and change the particle state into an anti-particle state (charge conjugation, C) If you do all these three things then you have the mirror image of the original particle state. QFT requires CPT invariance else it is dead wrong, which would be a catastrophe for Relativistic QM.

A quick example. Say we have an electron moving at velocity v; call this $\displaystyle \psi _e ( \textbf v , \text x , t, - )$. (The negative sign at the end is the electron's charge.) Acting on this state by the operator CPT we get the mirrored state to be $\displaystyle \psi _p ( - \textbf v, - \textbf{x}, -t , + )$. We call this inverted state a positron. Dirac's idea of a sea of negative electron energy states has been long since retired.

See here as well.

Why couldn't we say that electrical charge has space effect,namely,the inversion of electrical charge has something to do with the inversion of space? I like navy. I'm watching a Hollywood film BATTLESHIP. It's interesting.

If you invert space (specifically, perform a transform (x,y,z) -> (-x,-y,-z) relative to some origin), the physics is the same. It doesn't do anything. It would just be like watching something in a mirror.

The point of performing things like CPT transformations is to see how physics is affected by those transformations so that one can identity symmetries or inconsistencies, the latter of which can indicate issues. What you're proposing is to introduce an inconsistency under a spatial transformation, which is a bit daft.

I wasn't a fan of Battleship, but then again, I don't really like any military films unless they're dramatised documentaries (like Dunkirk) or satirical. If you like Battleship, you should watch Top Gun

You flip the chirality. The positron has the opposite chirality to the electron.
