Alternative concept, presented in 'MATTER (Re-examined)', explains all physical phenomena related to matter, using just a single foundational assumption that 'Substance is fundamental and matter alone provides substance to all real entities'. Only one type of basic matter-particle - 'Quantum of matter' - derived from this assumption is required to explain all of physical reality in universe. Quanta of matter form the all-encompassing universal medium that pervades entire space, outside 3D matter-particles. Author explains a wide array of physical phenomena from origin of 3D matter to gravity and subatomic interactions to cosmological events, using but simple mechanical interactions of quanta of matter. There is no more any need to envisage actions at a distance through empty space or to invoke irrational assumptions like imaginary particles, diversity of natural forces, mass-energy equivalence, constancy of light's speed, dual nature of electric charge, singularities, big bang, etc. using complex mathematics. This concept can radically alter our understanding of physical universe and at the same time, explain complex physical phenomena using simple 'Cause and Effect' relationships. This book is an enlarged version of pre-published book by same author titled 'Hypothesis on MATTER'.
A longstanding desire
of scientists is to have a unified theory, which is applicable
under all conditions to matter, in all its forms. This desire
clearly indicates that all is not well about current physical
theories. Hence, the search for a new theory. But contemporary
science has advanced too far on irrational assumptions,
illogical interactions and imaginary particles. Even a very
small correction, attempted in its fundamental area, is bound
to topple the cart of science. Therefore, very few persons
dare to suggest such changes. All current searches are, in
some or other way, based on or continuation of contemporary
theories. Searches based on these 'not very correct theories'
cannot, naturally, yield a better theory. In order to find a
better theory, we need to search outside orthodox realm of
physics. Any one, who dares to move outside the limits of
orthodox physics, in search for a better concept, is
immediately branded as heretics and is isolated from
main-stream physics. Their work is not considered worthwhile.
This tendency, on the part of establishment, is the main
hindrance towards a unified theory.
1. Matter is the sole
real entity in nature. It provides substance for objective
reality and positive existence to all physical entities,
including a material universal medium.
Logical development of
this concept (based on a single assumption that 'substance is
fundamental and matter alone provides substance to all real
entities') and following strict cause and effect relation,
provides all the above conclusions.
