"Since the General Theory of Relativity implies the representation of physical reality by a continuous field, the concept of particles or material points cannot play a fundamental part. The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density is particularly high."


- Albert Einstein, IDEAS & OPINIONS, p. 348

'Obviously the universe is not made up of a bunch of disturbed areas. Because, if it was, by now it would have *spread indefinitely.' - J.W.N Sullivan (THE LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE) and G.P. Thompson


(A *tensor equation - *4th coordinate; of time and motion - applicable where only three coordinates were previously perceived.)


Note: the ‘obvious’ is not put into words here. The obvious, being that the physical - as well as spatial - universe is found to be *expanding. Whereas, that inevitably *descriptive word - expanding - is displaced with 'spread indefinitely'.




"Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended." - Einstein




"There is no space empty of field." - Einstein




"In his novel, THE SEARCH, C.P. Snow describes the reaction of a student in class on hearing the physics professor say he is not sure whether some of of the subject matter in the course is right. This indication of disagreement of those inside physics comes as a surprise to the student; he has heard of past scientific controversies, but the current science which he is studying seemed to lack them altogether, as if scientist-authorities backed it up by unanimous vote. 'Science', writes Snow, 'had seemed to be without people or contradictions.'


"The knowledge that physics is not as unanimous or bloodless as it may appear from the outside came as a surprise to me also. I wanted to know more..."


- Barbara Lovett Cline, THE MEN WHO MADE A NEW PHYSICS, Preface






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."




Exerpts from The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, by Thomas S. Kuhn, from paragraph 1:


"Research is therefore not about discovering the unknown, but rather a strenuous and devoted attempt to force nature into the conceptual boxes supplied by professional education".




“Man began speculating about atoms long before science became an organized activity Even to the ancient Greeks it appeared sensible to assume that there might be some kind of ultimate building blocks of matter...


“Then, many centuries later, the great Isaac Newton implied that matter was formed in ‘solid, massy, hard, impenetrable, moveable particles’ - in other words, the atom was something like a billiard ball. Newton’s idea (*of the described ‘particle’) was pure speculation.” - MATTER, p. 119, Life Science Library.




The ‘billiard ball’ concept of ‘particle’ was more readily reinforced by direct, subjective experience, than was any objective concept of mysterious continuous forces generated by and emanating - action-at-a-distance across space - from discontinuous particles and combined systems of particles; to influence other particles and systems of particles. - KBR




“Magnetism, gravity, and action at-a-distance have not lost an iota of their baffling mystery since Gilbert (before Newton 1642 - 1726)” - Arthur Koestler, THE SLEEPWALKERS.




"We no longer think that physical action is explainable in terms of little hard balls which are the centers of all kinds of forces. A much more abstract kind of concept is demanded in which the particle is no longer something which can be considered in isolation, but rather as a part of an all embracing entity called a 'field'. In this development, Einstein's thought construction played a vital role..." - Ibid






How I Became World's #1 Einstein Groupie

A Brief History of a Series of Discoveries




In the experience of this author there are two histories of the evolution of physics. The objective history that was established by the men and women who contributed to it’s progressive evolution, and the subjective history of this author’s learning of that evolution and then recognizing and authenticating an unprecedented statement - previously proven but continuingly unrecognized on the foundations of physical science.




Discovering that Newton’s gravity is Einstein’s 4-dimensional space time continuum did not happen in premeditation, or all at once, or in any given flash of insight, but rather through a process of learning, motivated by what at first was no more than mild curiosity.





Speaking of retrieval, there is a print-painting of a terrier looking dog with a sailor boy on a box of Crackerjack, holding an inevitably smaller box of Crackerjack, upon which is printed another image of what appears to be the same dog beside another - looks like the same - sailor, only smaller; holding yet another box of Crackerjack; with what would seem has a printed painting of another dog beside another sailor holding a yet smaller box of Crackerjack and so on...




It seemed to go on forever, if the pictures could somehow be made ever smaller and still exist, as the visibly descending and/or ascending sequence of images certainly suggests... Geometrically squared rectangular boxes of heirarchically parallel and orthogonal Crackerjack containers and icons, out of infinite smallness proceeding to infinite largeness.




Who said the ever-smaller sequenced pictures - smaller or larger, past, present & future - had to ‘end’, ever?




If the atoms of the universe of the past got ever smaller and the atoms of the universe of the present got ever larger and the painter or printer passed his job on from one generation to the next, where was the ‘end’ of the illustrated hierarchy of images - the multi-moment space-time ensemble of differently sized pictures of the same dog and sailor boy holding a box of Crackerjack with a picture of himself and his dog on it - in past smallness & future largeness?




Einstein was caught up in a similar imbroglio, only it was in Switzerland, just northwest of where all this cartoon compounded dilemma was unfolding and back in the early 20th century. And then there is the story of the mathematicians who hacked out a formula that proved that bumblebees can't fly. Fortunately for all the flowers that are pollinated by bumblebees - they don't do math.




The scientific status quo has an understandable resistance to any alternative interpretations of what is - as well as what is not - known.




In the words of Galileo's proclamation against the inquisitional orders to disregard what was proven about the movement of the earth... "... still, it moves'. Say what you will mathematically of the 'flightless' bumblebee - like Albert 'The Axe' Einstein's double bit Lambda ( /\ ): 'Still, it flies'.










This work is dedicated to all who may constructively benefit from, add to, or (inevitably) improve upon it. Given the previously unrecognized academic foundations upon which it is based, disqualification is unlikely. Whereas, such event will inevitably contribute all the more to an improved understanding of the Universe At Large. A host of distinguished readers of nine previous editions have variously volunteered that even in the questionable consideration that the central and unprecedented conclusions herein are proved dissolute, the presentation of the history and evolution of the paramount problems in theoretical physics today, and the perspectives of them as provided herein, is an educationally important redemption of itself.
