    Mmmm.... I'm not quite sure I follow quite how exactly my signing up to four months with Delphi actually clarifies your proposition, exactly....

    Basically though, what you're suggesting is that it should be possible, theoretically, to be able extrapolate information concerning everything that's ever happened simply by analysing resonant and refractive wavelengths of energy - correct?

    Is yesterday really gone? Lost & Found in Space.

    INTERMISSION
    (In lieu of a response from the name calling, off topic staggering Phlogisophiolite):

    Speaking at the 2005 Solvay conference David Gross (Nobel laureate) said:

    "We are in a period of utter confusion.....These equations tell us nothing about where space and time come from and describe nothing we would recognise. At best, string theory depicts the way particles might interact in a collection of hypothetical universes..............we are missing something fundamental."

    "It is evident that the popular conviction that a generalized field theory is unable to explain the problems of the discontinuous structure of matter and quantum mechanics rests upon prejudice." - Albert Einstein, PHYSICS & REALITY

    "I feel sure we have to return to the program which may be described properly as the Maxwellian - namely the description of physical reality in terms of fields without particles." - Einstein, p. 270, IDEAS & OPINIONS

    THE CONFLUENCE OF CONTINUITY & DISCONTINUITY

    THE SOLUTION FOR TOTAL Continuous FIELD THEORY INCLUDING THE ILLUSORY 'CONTRADICTION' of DISCONTINUITY as perceived in QUANTUM MECHANICS:
    CONTINUOUS FIELD CAUSES, COMPLEMENTS & RECIPROCATES DISCONTINUOUS 'quanta'/'photons' - Planck's QUANTUM 'h' FACTOR - WITHOUT CONTRADICTION.
    Einstein was not awarded the Nobel Prize for his Special and General (continuous field) theories of relativity, but rather for his contributions to photon-discontinuity ('particle') theory, i.e. 'quantum mechanics'. This is the refuge of the Particle 'theory' school of thought, where quantum mechanics is adopted as the foundation of the 'theory' of Particle Physics and discontinuity; whereas, relativity is about continuous waves - field theory.

    The two discussions, Quantum Mechanics/ Photoelectric Effect/Particle Theory, and the subject of relativity and field theory are generally considered antithetical/contrary-to each other. The perceived discontinuous fork in the formerly continuous road through theoretical physics.

    In 1900, theoretical physics was near to recognizing and utilizing - pursuing continuous field theory to its fullest extents (*which the record humbly submits, is since accomplished herein); when Max Plank's discovery of the 'constant "h" factor' emerged - a discontinuous, invariably uniform value that the continuous field could be (and is in fact) reduced to. This discovery deterred/diverted any further pursuit of the direction Maxwell's accumulating camp was proceeding in, with his continuous field theory...
    Theoretical physics branched out, at Plank's introduced juncture of discontinuity; wherein and thenceforth, theoretical physics in general was dichotomized; brachiated:

    Field Theory is about continuous waves.
    Quantum Mechanics is about discontinuous units (of waves, called 'particles'; more recently called 'waveicles').

    ... You're very kind, I'm just relieved I managed to get the gist.

    In principal, it's a perfectly fine idea. The sort of stuff you're thinking about, information wise, should (again in principal) actually be there - the problems, as I believe (name calling aside) the others may be expressing is finding some way of implementation.

    Observations of phenomena on the macro scale - these fall within our remit of our current ability to observe. Those on the micro scale of events however... These may prove more illusive.

    Think of it like looking for a perfectly white cat in a perfectly white room illuminated by perfectly white light - how does one pick out the cat if, in practice, it blends in so very perfectly with everything else observable around it?

    Interesting cat. Sir. Notice the belated response from the formerly vigorous and now notably tardy parties. They specialize in insubstantial - savoire faire - one liners. Who needs content, countenance or bearing?

    The indeterminate factor is well known. So far it is impossible, is the import of your cited prohibition. That does not exclude the theoretical possibility of determining where it came from, as well as where it's going; with what effects. The present element of so called (status quo) impossibility cannot and does not presciently foretell the future in the real world.

    (Speaking of Schroedinger, have you not heard the exemplary Mr. Anonymous make it clear that the future of science - and Schroedinger's cat - may make near that which was distant, and easy, that which was difficult?)

    Your disregard for the theoretical future, as well as the past, is not well grounded.

    GOODBYE QUANTUM WIERDNESS
    An experiment performed by Shahriar S. Afshar has raised serious doubts about both the Copenhagen interpretation of QM and, to boot, the many-worlds interpretation. Recall that to date it was thought that all interpretations of QM would predict exactly the same phenomena. However, Afshar's experiment has shown an effect that violates complementarity and partitioned universe.

    The experiment is very simple - it's a standard 2-slit affair, with the following modification: observe the dark bands in the standard experiment, and place wires in these dark areas. These regions are where the wave models destructively interfere. Ergo there is "nothing" there to detect. However, the wires would scatter particles if they were present - and it turns out they do. For the first time, we observe "photons" behaving as particles and waves at the same time (in the same universe). Bye-bye Copenhagen. Bye-bye Everett.

    If this experimental result can be replicated - and it seems trivial to do - it may well spell the end of such notions as "photons"... and who knows what for electrons and so on? The favoured interpretation of QM may well become the Transactional model (based on de Broglie's original "pilot wave" theory); the required wierdness in this model comes from allowing waves to propogate backwards in time. This - whilst counter-intuitive - seems considerably less radical and unpleasant than Bohr's idea that the real world is "unknowable", and most scientists would admit that time is a poorly understood aspect of the world.

    you can work that out using basic diffraction models, by calculating the points at which constructive and destructuve interference occur for two waves of identical phase.

    This is rather bad news for the Copenhagen interpretation then, although the experiment and its conclusions have to be subject to peer review.

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I'm interested to see whether there's been any new developments on this. I've been observing from a distance, but it seems that there hasn't really been a lot of progress with the entire peer-review stuff.

    The interference bands only have a one dimensional line where the destructive interference is entire. Around that line, the interference band will be dark but not completly absent of light. So unless the wires are infinitely thin (which I presume they are not) the experiment shows nothing at all, because the measurement is still capable of collapsing the wavefunction.

    Would it be adequately brief and readable of Equus to suggest that Sir Arthur Eddington's 'waveicles' are being re-encountered here?
    Weren't DeBroglie & Schroedinger on or near the very same wave length(s)?

    Didn't Einstein say, 'There is no space empty of field'? And that 'the notion of discrete, discontinuous ('billiard-ball like') particles with distinct surfaces separating them from surrounding space, is based on prejudice'? (Paraphrased. IDEAS & OPINIONS, Pt. II: Contributions to Science.)

    When a circle representing a particle (which is actually a charge of electromagnetism without discontinuous boundaries) is divided into four 90o quadrants, and that circle is called a 4-D particle, and that particle has never been found (- even 'Particle Physics' has become a Standard of Reality that doesn't realistically qualify as anything more than an hypothesis. An entire Academic Cirruculum of Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D's, majoring and post graduately laboring in a hypothetically conjured universe full of so called ('billiard ball like') 'particles' (having surfaces making them discontinuous from surrounding space - separating material from spatial - not one of which has ever been found after exhaustive expeditions in search of a truely defined 'particle', returning only with fuzzy - space-time generating - charges of electricity, having no distinct boundaries; which only become more dense as you approach their centers. The conspicuously incomplete menu is worth repeating: Particle physicists would serve up a reality sandwich: if they had two slices of bread and some ham?)...

    Isn't this an a priori standardization (based on subjective anthropomorphic senses) overruling empirically resolved experimental resolution, scientific heresy?

    Don't the four 90o quadrants composing a consummate 'circle' (whether called a 'particle' or a charge', represent the four dimensions Einstein discovered in everything that was previously considered three dimensional? Is not the definition for physical dimensions the right angle motion (of whatever) out of the dimension preceding it?

    A=geometric point. A--->B=geometric point moving in (and thereby generating) a one dimensional Straight Line? When that one dimensional straight line A to B, moves at right angles to itself, B to C, does that not constitute the geometric progression from a dimensionless geometric point (A), to a one dimensional straight line (A-B), and does not that straight line B - C become a two dimensional Plane, when it moves at right angles (90o) to itself?

    The resulting two dimensional Plane, when it moves at right angles (90o) to itself, doesn't that generate a three dimensional space, occupied or unoccupied by matter?

    Does not every expedition in search of a 'particle', so far, return only with increasing evidence that there are only charges of electricity, emitting longer or shorter frequencies of electricity and magnetism, *always having the same value?

    *The shorter (ultraviolet related) waves being more dense, and the longer (infrared related) waves being more tenuous - and that 'there is no contact between physical systems', since such event requires the interaction of two or more discontinuous 'surfaces', and that such discrete, discontinuous boundaries continue to elude our - post hoc ergo prompter hoc - perception of what consistently proves to be ('surfaceless') 'contact' and 'collision': confined to an a priori subjective interpretation; without an objective leg, stool or platform to stand, sit or enjoy an encore upon?

    (Ph.D 'particle physicists': Quo Vadis?)

    'No two particles ever come into contact. When they get 'too close', they move off'.
    - Bertrand Russell, THE ABC OF RELATIVITY.

    Charges of electricity that fulfill the formal definition for 'material particle'; that is, microcosmic entities that occupationally demand three or more dimensions of space, disallow the simultaneous occupation of it's space by any other 'particle' (surfaceless charge of electricity), and possesses negative and positive inertia... (Heavy and Inert Mass)...

    Didn't Einstein prove that 'three dimensional matter is actually four dimensional', and that the previously unrecognized (so called, 'incomprehensible', 'unimaginable') 4th dimension is somehow closely related to time and motion?
    Are not the above described progressions of dimensions generated by moving at right angles - ninety degrees - from the preceding dimension?

    Doesn't this geometric law of right angle moving, progressively generated dimensions, require all three dimensional entities to be moving at right angles to themselves: in one of two possible directions, either constantly growing smaller, or constantly growing larger (in either case, at right angles to the three recognized dimensions constituting any such entity) - in order to fulfill their Einsteinian and geometric proved identity as four dimensional entities?

    Is not the physical universe consistently found - while remaining unrecognized: as constantly growing larger - moving at right angles to all three of it's dimensions, fulfilling it's obligation to be four dimensional, or, constantly growing smaller - moving at right angles to all three of it's recognized dimensions. in either case, fulfilling its established(if 'incomprehensible' and 'unimaginable') identity as 4-dimensional?

    Doesn't this correspond to the four ninety degree quadrants making up a circle? And, if and when anything moves at right angles out of that four dimensional circle, isn't whatever that may be, obliged to be identified as the 5th dimension (moving at right angles out of four dimensional matter)?

    Isn't electricity in fact generated by four dimensional matter, and isn't it observed to be constantly moving at right angles out of four dimensional matter, and, doesn't that require the arbiters of scientific definitions and nomenclature to recognize and identify electricity as the 5th dimension: moving at right angles out of four dimensional matter? Wouldn't that 5th ninety degree quadrant be obliged to occur outside the four quadrants that fulfill and complete a circle?

    Might not the transition of a fifth ninety degree quadrant exponentially constitute what is otherwise the unexplained 'quantum leap', furthermore explaining why each such 5th ninety degree quadrant generated by and projected from the 4 ninety degree quad circle of 4-D matter it is an extension of; always has the same value - 'just like photons', i.e., Planck's Constant h factor? (Which is considered a contradiction of field physics, rather than an extensional consequence of it... )

    Could not that so called 3-D 'particle' in this way be recognized as a 4-D charge of expanding electricity, emitting 'quantum leaps'; invariably having the same uniform values - the issued 5th ninety degree quadrant (obliged to occur outside of and be projected by the 4-D matter that emits it)?

    Moreover, doesn't magnetism invariably accompany electricity, and doesn't it invariably move at right angles to electricity, and isn't that a requirement for those 'professionals' in charge of paying attention to and interpreting such dynamics, to recognize and identify magnetism as the 6th dimension...?

    Since Einstein proved formerly perceived '3-D matter' is actually 4-Dimensional, and that the 4th dimension is somehow closely related to time and motion (modifying 'space and time', to 'space-time', because the 'two' <'space and time'> were then recognized as being inseparable), and the laws of geometric progression require 3-D entities to be moving at right angles to all three of their recognized dimensions, having one of two alternatives therefore, of constantly moving at right angles from themselves, growing ever smaller, as the '4-D space-time continuum', or, growing ever larger, as the 4-D space-time continuum.

    If: Einstein and the laws of the progression of dimensions are correct, and since objects released above the earth's surface don't 'fall upward' (which would prove a constantly contracting physical universe made up of ever shrinking charges of electricity), but instead, objects released above the earth's surface are observed to 'fall down'....

    Doesn't this mean that the object (Newton's apple, for example) doesn't really move from A to B, but rather that the entire coordinate system - the physically expanding earth (and universe), in it's constantly ongoing enlargement, including the uniformly expanding observer and all of his instruments of measurement, are moving from B to A, creating the illusion of the (whatever) 'falling' object, by way of the ever expanding acceleration of the entire coordinate system earth, beneath the 'falling' object, creating the illusion that the object is moving 'downward', rather than that the earth (entire frame of reference) is rising up to meet it....?

    Wouldn't this explain what Einstein meant when he said that the apparent parabolically curved trajectory of a thrown baseball or fired cannonball for example, is not actually curved, but is actually straight - a 'geodesic' - because 'space-time curves' around the apparently descending object and generates the illusion of a parabolically trajectoried object...?

    Is not the explanation herein, why all objects, regardless of their mass value, 'descend' at the same rate of acceleration and strike the earth at the same time, when simultaneously released from the same height? Since, cannon ball and bb shot are not actually falling at all, but only appearing to do so, due to the ubiquitous uniform expansion of the entire frame of reference, including any and all observers and test object(s)? Revealing the illusion of an apparently falling object; with the earth instead rising-up to overtake, meet and strike it, rather than conversely?
    (Re: "Non-absolute space". And, "The universe is finite (*at any given moment in space), but unbounded." - Einstein
    (*KBR)

    Non mathematically and comprehensively explaining why inert and heavy mass 'coincidentally, cancel each other out', anomalously said to account for what Einstein called 'an astonishing coincidence'.. (and based his entire General Theory of Relativity upon) - otherwise a blatant contradiction of Newton's Laws of Gravity, which clearly require a proportionately increasing gravity generated by a correspondingly larger mass; therefore dictating a scenario of a greater mutual attraction between a falling cannon ball and the earth, than between a falling bb shot and the earth, resulting in what is certainly 'supposed to be' the inevitably faster rate of descent for correspondingly 'heavier' objects (Re: Aristotelian thought - which is reasonable enough, but in this case is - remarkably - inapplicable)...

    In this universal status quo, would not a so called 'black hole singularity' actually be a 3-D static object in a 4-D expanding universe; with the 3-D object becoming as small and dense as the ever mores swiftly expanding 4-D universe becomes large and uniformly tenuous around it, forever (squared)?

    Would this not leave the Law of Conservation of Mass-Energy intact, since we are considering the same amount of uniformly expanding energy increasingly distributing itself over ever larger volumes of (metric functional, rather than non-metric absolute) space, where all constantly expanding physical charges (neutrons, protons, electrons, mu mesons, et al) remain relatively the same size and density, without the requirement of 'the spontaneous creation of hydrogen' which caused Bondi, Gold and Hoyle to abandon the otherwise entirely tenable 'Steady State Theory' (Now foregrounding a so called 'Big Bang' to 'explain' the - unexpectedly discovered, 1927 thru '32 spatially expanding universe.)

    Whereas, the astrophysical consensus on the structural dynamics of the observed spatially expanding ('beginning') universe proves out that there is no common ('big bang', 'ylem', 'cosmic egg') center from which the ('red shift') expanding universe, expands...

    That is, no matter where the observer is located in universal space, the expanding universe exhibits celestial systems, light sources, stars, galaxies, etceteras, to be moving away from the observer, in direct line of sight...

    Indicative of a repelling force (Einstein called it the 'Cosmological Constant', symbolizing it in his equations with the Greek letter Lambda (- /\ ) acting out of individual material systems, macrocosmically affirming Bertrand Russell's observation about microcosmic 'particles' (charges of electricity having no distinct boundaries, becoming increasingly more dense toward their centers):
    'No two particles (macrocosmic systemic material celestial entitities) ever come into contact, when they get too close, they move off'.
    - Bertrand Russell THE ABC OF RELATIVITY.

    Is not the unexpected and 'unexplained' Relativistic discovery that physical matter contracts in the direction of its motion at a rate proportional to its velocity: because matter is an ever expanding-accelerating field, and that the successful *application by Einstein of the transformations of H.A. Lorentz (who developed the conversions exclusively for the description of field energy) *to so called 'particles', proves that the issued contraction of physical matter is actually 'Doppler effect', as exclusively applicable to field energy...?

    If so called falling objects are actually being overtaken and struck by the ever ongoing rising up (acceration @ 32' per " per ") of the entire coordinate system, creating the illusion of 'falling objects' (much as the axial spinning motion of the earth at 24,000 mph, generates the illusion that the sun and celestial vault revolve around it every 24 hours); doesn't this mean that the so called 'impelling (attractive) force' (F) of gravity is actually 'a repelling force' (as Newton offers that gravity may in fact be, *in those words, in his three page Preface to the PRINCIPIA MATHEMATICA?)


    'The idea that brute, inanimate matter can inexplicably act at a distance across space to influence other matter, is to me so great an absurdity that no man with a competent faculty for thinking could ever fall into it.'
    - Isaac Newton, On Universal Gravity.

    Please keep in mind that J.C. Maxwell had yet to discover and mathematically describe electromagnetic fields generated by mass and projecting through space (gravity was once thought to act at a distance instantaneously, when in fact it - non-coincidentally - is found to propogate at exactly the same speed as light, since that's what it is).

    Whereas, it was and is the cardinal objective of Einstein's (presently abandoned) Unified Field, to find gravity and electromagnetism two apparently unrelated phenomena, actually having the same causal identity...
    Einstein was persuaded to abandon the Cosmological Constant, with which he predicted an expanding - not a big bang - universe: eight years before it was discovered.

    He called it ‘the biggest blunder I ever made in my life’; which indeed this author humbly submits it was, insofar as it was a mistake for him to have allowed 'the (non-sequiturial) scientific community', to persuade him that what he had predicted - a spatially expanding universe - was caused by a 'big bang beginning' (perceived as being 'inevitable', when the observed expansion was 'back-tracked' to an assumed intersecting point of origin, where all of the receding light sources and celestial systems were assumed to converge on one point in space from which the expansion 'began').

    Whereas, that is an archaic three dimensional restriction imposed on an allegedly 'acknowledged' 4-D universe; wherein the back tracking does not recede to a point of intersection, but rather where that would-be finite beginning intersection which is said to have contained all of the matter of the universe, generating pressures and temperatures resulting in an explosion, causing the observed spatial expansion as it is presently seen; moreover perceived as destined to result in a 'universal heat death', where the expansion will dissipate all of matter to a point of 'non-motion'.


    There are variations on the so called big bang theory, one of which purports a 'pulsating universe', that endlessly 'big bangs', spreads out to a point of stoppage, collapses on itself, big bangs, spreads out to 'heat death', collapses on itself, ad infinitum. In this law breaking departure from allegedly acknowledge 4-D reality, Newton's law that a body in motion remains in uniform motion, until acted upon by an outside force... Leaving the question of what 'resistance' - opposing action - is going to slow down the expanding universe; eventually obliging it to 'stop' expanding; thenceforth obliging it's (unidentified, so called) 'gravitational attraction' to pull it back together (back track to the point from which it originated, then and thereupon to reiterate the 'Big Bang', causing the spatial universe to expand, 'slow down', 'stop', recollapse on itself: squared.
    Such a 'scientific interpretation' also directly implies a 'theology' of hopelessness, since any evolutionary or other constructive process in the 'pulsating universe' is foreordained to be completely obliterated; leaving any and all life forms, certainly including humanity on earth; presciently committed to 'enlightened' philosophies of endlessly predestined destruction, leaving animate, sentiently evolving life forms, imparting artifacts, ironing the bugs out of DNA & RNA, and playing volley ball on the beaches of the world; writing the future and posterity in the sands of futility...

    The big bang 'theory' is not a theory at all, but rather (like 'particle theory') only a hypothesis, and a very poorly founded one, for which there has yet to emerge any tractable proof at all.
    Georges Henri Lemaitre ('Father of the Big Bang'), Edwin Hubble and many others since, upon being surprised to discover the spatial universe was expanding, were put upon to conjure an explanation for it; resulting in the ad hoc, ex parte jiffyfix of the so called big bang.

    Hawkings has the moment of intersection and the 'resulting explosion' - the moment of 'beginning'- down to a nano-gnat's caboose: chronologically and spatially applied to an event that did not happen.

    As this record has previously observed, Stephan Hawking's personal and political courage is not in question, here; whereas his 'refinement' of the big bang: fine tuning what is among the most grandiosely celebrated faux pax's in the history and evolution of science - which (oxymoronic, non-sequitural, and yes, sometimes prevaricating) 'community' today (schizophrenically) insists it 'acknowledges' the 4-D space-time continuum, while simultaneously excluding it from the big bang theory - which is intractable in a 4-D universe, where the so called 'inevitably limiting point of convergence and intersection' of all ('back-tracked') spatially expanding matter, 'runs out of space', only in three dimensions...

    Whereas, in four dimensions, the back-tracked spatially expanding universe only becomes infinitely smaller, squared.

    The 4th D proves that smallness is just as endless as largeness. Whereas, the 3-D restricted big bang is about as tenable (in the words of K. Kostner playing Jim Garrison in JFK) as an elephant hanging over a cliff, with its tail tied to a daisy...

    On the other hand, it seems that gravitational force on or near a massive coordinate system is a repelling force, whereas, it likewise seems to be an impelling force at great distances (refer, aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric tides).

    Einstein reasoned that the Cosmological Constant was a parallel but opposite vector in tandem with and counteracting Newton's (ever causally unidentified) gravitational force of attraction; which even Newton himself candidly critisized - in the spirit of a true scientist - because he could not explain why a universe full of mutually attracting bodies did not collapse on itself.

    When it was learned that the spatial universe was expanding, Einstein's prediction was poo-pawd, superimposed with the ad hominem hustle of the Lemaitre inspired big bang gang, all advocates of which are obsessed with the need for a 'beginning' - schizophrenically 'acknowledge' the 4th D, while ignoring it as a disqualification of their elaborately pampered, groomed and well scrubbed 'democratic' dismissal of reality, for lack of evidence...

    Is not a good title for a series of observations like this: GRAVITY IS THE 4th DIMENSION (Electricity is the 5th dimension. Magnetism is the 6th dimension)? The Non-Mathematical Reinstatement of Einstein's Presently Abandoned Unified Field...?

    The question is not:
    'Where, what and when is the 4th dimension?'
    The question is: 'Where, what and when is it not?'

    The challenge is not in the proving of it.The challenge is in the disproving of it.

    Everyone and anyone can see that the universe revolves around the earth every 24 hours; just as they can see that home run base-balls and spiral pigskin passes travel in parabolic trajectories, and that precipitating objects descend from A to B, rather than the entire coordinate frame of reference ascending from B to A...

    I'm not sure if this has been stated to you or not, however I'm guessing that most of the information you've posted here has come from another source.

    The forums attempts in a causal way to keep certain rules, one of them is copying texts from anywhere on the internet and posting them.

    What is usually suggested is to either house a file with the text in on your own webspace or link to the original text. It's also suggested that a brief paragraph "Teaser" from the text is quoted, with your own comments to make discussion.

    The main reason for this formality is purely that texts that are either unpublished or just blogs, maillist archives, chatroom logs etc, Take up alot of space and consume a great deal of bandwidth and processor time.

    So if you could try to do that with your posts in the future, it would be greatly appreciated rather than having me "Moderate" your posts.

    Dear Stryder:

    The other source this information came from is my own published post (Not a blog),Total Field Theory (Survey Notes Pt. II) at http://forums.delphiforums.com/EinsteinGroupie.
    I hope this is acceptable to you.
    I have linked to the entire website several times and been crticized for 'spamming', whereas the website is an entire book, with nothing 'for sale'.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    'Rewritten physics?'. Hardly. One doesn't jack the universe up and place a new one under it. The math is already done. You find everything right where it is, while re-recognizing it. Google and other net crawling chronology confirms that the statements 'Gravity, electricity & magnetism are the 4th, 5th and 6th dimensions (with all of it's unprecedented contingent recognitions)' were not anywhere on the net until posted by a volunteer - Bkparque - in December '99, in the condensed 9th edition of a hard copy essay and book, originally published in Naples, Italy and New Jersey in 1959. It's sold out all over the country (and in Europe, in three languages) in small press, ever since.
    It has yet to be disqualified, though, since it was posted on the net in '99, Parquette, Caleb, McCutcheon and Mathis have variously replicated key portions of it without so much as the mention of my name - it's all over the net and in McCutcheon's Final Theory .

    Paradigm shift? Your name calling, unfounded, envy motivated antithetical attack is an example of those who would and do vacantly deny it. Although McCutcheon uses it in the early chapters of his book he stumbles and lurches off on his own to avoid a conspicuous blazing of a remarkably wide, clear, unprecedented ground breaking trail that's already established by Truly Yours.
    The best observation McCutcheon pens was published by him four years after it was posted on the net by B.K.Parquette - 12/'99; originated with my work, originally titled, An Hypothesis on Gravity (in '59 - following through on Einstein's General Principle and the elevator analogy as it had never been followed through before).

    The title then evolved to 'The New Gravity', then 'Gravity is the 4th Dimension', and more recently, 'Total Unified Field Theory'. at http://forums.delphiforums.com/EinsteinGroupie, since it's being presented to and given free to the public your spamming allegation is empty.

    Dr. Richard Feynman couldn't disqualify it when he skipped three classes to argue it with me in his office at UCLA, in October of '66; he notably introduced very little math and complimented and encouraged me in my work; which does quote from many authoritative sources in order to connectively authenticate the unprecedented findings and narration.

    You seem to think that a conspicuous following is necessary in order for a work to be tenable, when history shows many opposite trends, just as it is unfolding now, though the 'shift in paradigm' is in fact measurably underway, right here on the internet - those who are participating in this shift are deliberately or inadvertantly excluding knowledge of or accredation to this author. The more controversial this belatedly celebrated work becomes under any name, the closer my unfilchable work rises to world class surface.

    And you would have me abandon it in the middle of it's much belated emergence. Why don't you and your 'disdainfully sharing' followers, and all those like you, simply read - instead of squawking about - the condensation at the provided URL and disqualify it as it has yet to be nullified - why not just do it - disqualify it - instead of covetously heaving and sighing with vainly impotent frustration and aspersion hurling anger?

    Kaidourkhon,
    Einstein was persuaded to abandon the Cosmological Constant, with which he predicted an expanding - not a big bang - universe: eight years before it was discovered.
    Not exactly. The equations of General Relativity lead to an unstable universe, one that would either contract or expand. Einstein added his Cosmological Constant to stabilize the universe. It could be either a repulsive force to counteract a collapsing universe, or an attractive force to stabilize an expanding universe. Einstein did not predict an expanding universe, but instead used the Cosmological Constant to predict a stable universe.

    Kaidourkhon,
    Please keep in mind that J.C. Maxwell had yet to discover and mathematically describe electromagnetic fields generated by mass and projecting through space (gravity was once thought to act at a distance instantaneously, when in fact it - non-coincidentally - is found to propogate at exactly the same speed as light, since that's what it is).
    According to General Relativity, gravitational waves are predicted to travel at the speed of light. Does a gravitational field travel at all? Where is a reference to the back the statement that gravity is found to propogate at exactly the same speed as light? Information travels at exactly 'c'. Let me ask a question, please. The Shapiro effect has been verified. Electromagnetic radiation has been measured to propogate more slowly when passing through a gravitation field. The light takes longer to arrive when it passes near massive objects or their gravitational fields. General Relativity predicts this is because light travels a longer path around mass, a curvature of spacetime caused by the gravitational field of the mass. Does your 'gravity' that travels 'exactly' the speed of light take longer to propogate through gravitational fields? In other words, does gravity follow the curvature of spacetime like light? If it does, how can it escape past the event horizon of a black hole?

    Consider this, a Particle Travels, a Wave is a Transversal method, where as a Field surrounds a point that emits it. Therefore a "Gravitational field" doesn't travel.

    Dear 2 inquisitive:
    I’ve been calling forums websites since 2002 when I first starting using computers on line. You’re right, it is a forum, but take note that there is no reciprocal discussion there (at least not yet). Rather, it is a monologue and narrative forum format, featureing a series of quotes that are related to one another; reaching unprecedented conclusions.


    “Kaidourkhon,
    Einstein was persuaded to abandon the Cosmological Constant, with which he predicted an expanding - not a big bang - universe: eight years before it was discovered.”

    Not exactly. The equations of General Relativity lead to an unstable universe, one that would either contract or expand. Einstein added his Cosmological Constant to stabilize the universe. It could be either a repulsive force to counteract a collapsing universe, or an attractive force to stabilize an expanding universe. Einstein did not predict an expanding universe, but instead used the Cosmological Constant to predict a stable universe.

    Dear 2inquisitive:
    You probably know that Friedmann found that Einstein’s Cosmological Constant ‘might start expanding or contracting at the siightest provacation’. Well. I submit that E’s C (repelling force) C is in fact expanding - causing the observed, spatially expanding universe (w’out a big bang); most resembling a Steady State universe.


    Kaidourkhon,
    “Please keep in mind that J.C. Maxwell had yet to discover and mathematically describe electromagnetic fields generated by mass and projecting through space (gravity was once thought to act at a distance instantaneously, when in fact it - non-coincidentally - is found to propogate at exactly the same speed as light, since that's what it is). ”

    2inquisitive: The reference to back the statement that gravity is electromagnetism is repeatedly established in the issued text forum.

    . Let me ask a question, please. The Shapiro effect has been verified. Electromagnetic radiation has been measured to propogate more slowly when passing through a gravitation field. The light takes longer to arrive when it passes near massive objects or their gravitational fields. General Relativity predicts this is because light travels a longer path around mass, a curvature of spacetime caused by the gravitational field of the mass. Does your 'gravity' that travels 'exactly' the speed of light take longer to propogate through gravitational fields? In other words, does gravity follow the curvature of spacetime like light? If it does, how can it escape past the event horizon of a black hole?


    2inquisitive: Black holes are hypothetical. Allowing that they exist, they are a contracting 4-D space time continuum. The meaning of that is clarified in the text you are referred to at the forum - http://forums.delphiforums.cc/EinsteinGroupie

    Ergo, It (gravity) doesn’t escape past the ‘event’ (‘optical’) horizon of a black hole.

    Dear 2inquisitive:
    Below are excerpts from Pt III of the issued forum:


    “It is well known to students of high school algebra that it is permissable to divide both sides of an equation by any quantity, provided that this quantity is not zero. However, in the course of his proof Einstein had divided both sides of one of his intermediate equations by a complicated expression, which in certain circumstances, could become zero (‘at the slightest provocation’)...
    “In the case, however, when this expression becomes equal to zero, Einstein’s proof does not hold, and (mathematician) Friedmann realized that this opened a whole new world of time-dependent universes; expanding, collapsing, and pulsating ones.
    “Thus Einstein’s original gravity equation was correct, and changing it was a mistake. Much later, when I was discussing cosmological problems with Einstein, he remarked that the introduction of the cosmological term was the biggest blunder he ever made in his life. But the ‘blunder’, rejected by Einstein, and the cosmological constant denoted by the Greek letter /\, rears its ugly head again and again and again.” - George Gamow, GRAVITY, p. 270

    The ‘ugly head’ Of The Outlawed Truth (Outlawed and uglified, ‘again, and again, and again’... ):

    “The cosmological constant has now a secure position... Not only does it unify the gravitational and electromagnetic fields, but it renders the theory of gravitation and its relation to space-time measurement so much more illuminating and indeed self evident, that return to the earlier view is unthinkable. I would as soon think of reverting to Newtonian Theory as of dropping the cosmological constant.”
    - Sir Arthur Eddington, THE EXPANDING UNIVERSE, p. 24

    “I can see no reason to doubt that the observed recession of the spiral nebulae is due to cosmic repulsion, and it is the effect predicted (in 1919) by Relativity Theory which we were hoping to find. Many other explanations have been proposed - some of them rather fantastic (* ‘tired light’, ‘the big bang’,’dark matter’, ‘gravitons’, ‘super strings’ ‘anti-matter’) - and there has been a great deal of discussion which seems to me rather pointless. In this, as in other developments of scientific exploration, we must recognise the limitations of our present knowledge and be prepared to consider revolutionary changes.”
    - Sir Arthur Eddington, pp. 89 - 90, A TREASURY OF SCIENCE (Harlow Shapley publishers)

    Long ago, this author noted that Einstein's designation for the repelling force inherent to universal gravitation is Lambda (Also, by apparent coincidence, the Aztec calendar's key symbol: ^ <repeated 9 times in a circle around the Aztec calendar>. Translating to: "4-motion" ).
    Shaped, not unlike a kind of transversely considered axe. Also the shape of a pizza-pie-charted slice. So designated; so named. Godfathered by Albert - 'the Axe' - Einstein. An affectionate if levititious term for the Maestro of gravity. Lambda (^) his undismissable sceptre. Scarlet billows (for those who insist. Resistance is futile...)

    Speaking of supremely toothy, pearly white authority in the name of Albert Einstein. Any Ph.D. in physical science who today chooses to disgrace himself in public contention with the Cosmological Constant: Is deferred to the obligation of professionally kissing the thin lips of Albert The Ax Einstein’s double bit Lambda.

    A rash, sleep-disturbing look (in black & white) at Einstein's 4-Dimensional Geodesics.
    This discussion is rapidly approaching its close. Before it closes, I wish to cite another accordance of the General Theory; which states that a thrown baseball or a fired bullet does not actually describe a curved or parabolic path to the earth, when projected horizontally above its surface. Instead, they actually move in straight lines which only appear to be curves and parabolas.

    The reason for this says Einstein, is that, 'What is 4-Dimensionally straight gives the illusion of being curved or parabolic when projected on the 3 recognized Dimensions Of Space'.

    These quasi 3-D parabolas and curves which are not really parabolas and curves, but instead are 4-D straight lines, are called 'geodesics'.
    Einstein's geodesic account of gravity is that, 'Matter causes the 4-D Space-Time continuum to curve in t he area surrounding it'. This fact is formally referred to as, 'Einstein's postulate of the 4-D Space-Time metric'.

    If we find this Einsteinian description of gravitation vague, it is simply because it is indeed a vague description, yielding small conceptual compromise when compared with the familiar if mysterious 'tug' of Classical Newtonian gravity.

    One may question, What does Relativity mean when it accounts for gravity by referencing the 4-D Space-Time metric and the curving of the 4-D Space-Time Continuum? And how does this 4-D Space-Time Continuum cause bodies to descend, or geodesically appear to descend?
    The 'answer' is that physicists do not understand the identity of Einstein's 4th Dimension; since space-time is one of the many effects of the 4th Dimension, it is not understood or recognized what the geodesic gravitational curvature of space-time is either.

    “The General Theory (of Relativity) presented a completely altered view of gravitation. It is viewed as a property of space rather than as a force between bodies. As a result of the presence of matter, space becomes a curve and bodies follow the line of least resistance. These 4-D lines are called ‘geodesics’.” - Isaac Asimov, THE INTELLIGENT PERSON’S GUIDE TO SCIENCE

    The false enigma is resolved in the recognition that the entire physical frame of reference is - 4-Dimensionally - ever enlarging, pinning the fans to their bleachers, all the cars to the asphalt in the parking lot, the city accomodating the ball park and the omnidirectionally expanding planet the city rests upon: rising up to create the illusion that the apparently curving baseball trajectory, which is actually a moving in a straight line ('geodesic'), appears to be moving in a parabolic arc. When a test object is projected straight up in the air, it does not 'slow down, turn around and return to the catcher. No indeed. The catcher - or the ground - rises up to overtake and impact the test object. (Now you know. <Know you now?>)

    Here's what false authority says of Einstein's 4-D geodesic: "We cannot visualize such a curved space. Because humanity is not four dimensional."
    - The LIFE Science Library's UNIVERSE, p. 179

    “The General Theory (of Relativity) presented a completely altered view of gravitation. It is viewed as a property of space rather than as a force between bodies. "As a result of the presence of matter, space becomes a curve and bodies follow the line of least resistance." These 4-D lines are called ‘geodesics’.” - Isaac Asimov, THE INTELLIGENT PERSON’S GUIDE TO SCIENCE

    Neither will it ever be visualized, until Matter is recognized to be 4-Dimensionally expanding. As simply illustrated here and affluently verified throughout this mere historical review.

    Kaiduorkhon, Like I said before the idea of a Discussion forum is just that. You place forwards a summary, then your thoughts on what that summary contains and agree to discuss/debate.

    What you do not do is continue to Cut/Paste from one location to another, infract one more time and I'm afraid I'll have to start moderating properly.

    I know this post was in response to someones questions, but you could use external URL's to show where this information is located.

    I asked for a link to Kaiduorkhon's 'theory'. He did not provide a link, but instead more quotes of others and gibberish.

    Kaiduorkhon, your expanding mass theory does not reflect the measurements physicists have already made. For instance, at what velocity does the Earth 'expand' to overtake objects? Gravitational acceleration at the surface of the Earth is different than gravitational acceleration 25,000 kilometers above the surface. We can have more than one object affected by gravitational acceleration, some on the surface, others at various distances above the surface. How do you explain tidal effects, such as the moon and sun's effects on the oceans of the Earth? If all of the universe is expanding in such a manner to keep astronomical bodies a given distance apart, how can bodies of different masses exibit different gravitational accelerations? You seem to take the equivalence of inertial frames, then try to apply that logic to non-inertial frames. Acceleration is absolute, accelerate a charged particle and its properties are different than a particle moving inertially.

    These issues are engaged in the forum (which I did call a website) that you prove not to have read. I am prohibited from transferring cogent information from the forum you allude to as merely being quotes from others and gibberish (The corroborating statements of Gamow, Eddington and Asimov are glossed over as 'gibberish'?) Your critique and objections would have me write or transfer the entire forum to this location, neither one of which actions are practical or allowed.

    A tenth small press edition is underway and letters such as and including yours are features in the Afterward. Action at a distance effecting aquatic, atmospheric and terrestrial tides are explained, as well as orbital phenomena, the spatially expanding universe, inertial variations and gravitation on or near the surface of a major gravitational mass - accounted for in the work (as it stands in the forum) you purport to be doing a qualified critique on. (Refer: The Art of Missing the Point: When You Can't Afford - or choose not - to Catch on.)
