Essentially this book is about a Theory of Everything. Perhaps its biggest problem is that it is another book about the theory of everything. While talking to people about it, I am asked, “If it is so great, why don’t you show it to some leading physicists and get them excited about it?” Well, I have had a few friends that are big in the physics community. One works with supercolliders. Another is the dean of a physics department in a prestigious university. And there are others in the physics community I have talked to. We can talk about other common interests. However, when the subject of this book comes up, they go away or change the subject. They refuse to consider what I say even though we have many other common interests. --- I do not believe the physics community has the willingness to consider what is in this book. My suspicion is that the new age community might be different. They are seeking. Perhaps they may take a look at this. Therefore, the title suggests there might be something for new age people. --- Because those not familiar with this material might think it comes from outside the reality of standard physics, the first half of the book is devoted to the history of quantum mechanics. It covers the subject beginning with Aristotle’s view of wave theory, the double slit experiment, Max Plank’s work, and the achievement of de Broglie. This provides a solid background to quantum theory suitable for high school students. --- The second half of the book essentially begins with a study of Einstein’s special theory of relativity. From this author’s point of view, this is the most proved theory in existence. It is the most solid concept in all of physics. In other books about the subject, claims are made that it cannot be explained. In this book, a model is presented that supports the postulates of which the theory is based upon. This model is like the end of yarn that unravels a rug. The whole of universal structure is the rug that is unraveled. From this point, very basic concepts are presented that unfold all the mathematics of the universe. The simple concepts develop special relativity and E equals mc squared using naught but high school math.Über den Autor:
The quest for the information in this book essentially began in 1953 when Al read ABC of Relativity by Bertrand Russell. At the time, it was a very popular book. He was fired up by the weirdness of Special Relativity. How in the world could time change when something moved quickly through space. He attempted to come up with some mechanism that would enable such a thing to happen. The interest in this never stopped. Al went on to get a physics degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, 1969. After graduating, Al pursued a career in computers working in a variety of industries, mostly engineering and industrial controls. Eventually he became a contract programmer. Between contracts, he studied a wide variety of subjects. They included martial, spiritual and magic arts. His involvement in each of these went far beyond the average person's interest. During all of this, the interest in mastering Special Relativity never waned. In the summer of 2002, while living in an apartment above a barbershop in Cornell, Wisconsin; Al decided to resolve the issue. Armed with concepts from his junior class in college, specifically Theoretical Mechanics and a computer, he decided to write a program that would simulate a universe that would support the postulates Einstein used in formulating Special Relativity. The initial concept was that a computer could simulate anything. The plan was to create a universe in the computer similar to the one we see around us. Another part of the plan was to create a universe that was like Einstein's universe. The idea was to use the Lorentz Transformation to represent this space. During this process, the relationship between an Einstein like universe and a normal Galilean universe appeared. A physical model for Special Relativity manifested itself. Now, this concept was the end of a thread that, for the author, unwound the rug called universe. Understanding how time, mass and even space could change when something moved, opened a door to understanding what light is, what matter is, what gravity is and even what space is. Understand, none of this happened all at once. Grabbing the end of the thread and yanking on it revealed a gem to study for some time. When that was absorbed, another yank produced another gem. This study continued from 2002 until 2010. This material and its study are presented in this book.
