A moire is the pattern of overlap and interference between contour lines or figures. The bands of interference bend and arc at angles from the original lines. For example — creating elliptic curves around a pair of concentric rings. (see above)
When the contour lines are replaced by a regular tiling, (square grid, honeycomb, or a repeated icon) then the interference patterns act as a magnification of the regular tiling! (see below)
Also, you can move a tiled moire left-to-right, while the interference pattern moves up and down, orthogonal to you. This is a clue to the relationship between perpendicular forces — electricity and magnetism. There are changes in the dynamics of apparent waves, based upon the motion of the underlying moire grids. Here:
(Update: graphene layers form a moire superconductor?!)
I suspect that moire dynamics are a simpler and richer metaphor for modeling subatomic physics. De Broglie might agree. Any displacement of concentric ring contours will produce waves which may carry particles. Yet, de Broglie might not have noticed the effect of torquing two tiled contours — magnification.
The concentric contours of de Broglie are one aspect of subatomic wave and particle dynamics, and the magnification of a tiling must be considered as another aspect of subatomic dynamics, regarding the magnification of matter.
If the moire representing a proton is contoured with concentric circles composed of regular tiles, and it experiences torque between its moire layers, then the particle which rides this wave, via de Broglie, would be likely to appear and interact over a much larger area than the ground state. The proton would be ‘smeared out’. This increases the probability of interaction between that proton and other particles, analogous to quantum tunneling.
I suspect that the vibration of regularly tiled crystalline lattices (e.g. diamond) can fuse constituents of the surrounding material (e.g. hydrogen, deuterium) because the subatomic particles are made diffuse by a turning of the layers of their moire. That torque causes a magnification of these tiled particles, to a scale where they generally overlap; this overlap allows the transfer of energy between the fused particle and the surrounding lattice. The diffusion of force along the magnified perimeter, and small relative distance between nuclei, allow deuterium to easily trespasses the Coulomb barrier. So, yeah.
I also suspect that: if similar torsion is applied to a shell, enclosing cargo or occupants, it might form an incredibly strong barrier, because large sections of the shell would weakly interact with any projectile or radiation over a long distance, and force of impact is distributed over the entire surface of the shell.
Finally, I hazard: these moire exist as higher-dimensional objects, and their interference zones create our four-dimensional cosmos… so, some torque of moire can happen along the time dimension. If a torsion shell could rip loose from this space-time, as its own micro-verse soap bubble, it might be able to land in a new time and place when it pops back into our world — like a soap bubble landing on water, then exploding.
When viewed in 4D, the torsion shell’s initial ‘bulge’ in space-time is followed by the formation of a ‘bubble’ which ‘separates’ from our shared space-time — in 4D, that ‘separation’ actually looks like a tube or tunnel… because it’s a temporal wormhole. Like the handle on your coffee mug, wormholes can reach from any spot in space-time to any other. We just need to figure out how to steer them…
