Although each area of physics is known and codified in the form of a specific system of equations, the lack of standardization prevents us from recognizing the common underlying organizational structure of physical interactions. This paper explores the possibility...

This document is an extended presentation of the formalism introduced in a paper called ?The Organizational Structure of Physics? (The OSP) , presented at the 18th annual conference of the Natural Philosophy Alliance. One of the direct consequences of the proposed...

In the SI system, the dimensions of physical quantities are derived from seven base dimensions corresponding to the seven fundamental quantities. This document shows how it might be possible to derive the dimensions of all quantities from space and time only. Download...

Despite the idea of an expanding universe having been around for nearly one hundred years there is still no conclusive, direct evidence for expansion. This paper examines the Lyman Alpha forest in order to determine the average temperature and the average separation...

This paper presents a new Universal Relationships Law and proposes minor corrections to the science of such icons of science as Aristotle, Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton and even Einstein. Following examples are included;Lighter Bodies Travel Faster. Aristotle got it...

The interpretations of phenomena behind the theory of relativity are discussed and analyzed. Theories different from those founding the theory of relativity are presented. It is demonstrated that classical concepts can explain most observations. It is therefore...

Many textbooks of electromagnetism give an example in which a current-carrying wire is alleged to be electrically neutral when at rest in the laboratory. They then show that the Lorentz contraction of moving charge, demanded by special relativity theory, causes a...

At variance with a largely shared opinion, both the foundation and the logical structure of Special Relativity (SR) have substantially been laid by Hendrik Lorentz and by Henri Poincar?, not by Albert Einstein. Yet, the mathematical generalization of SR comes from...

The gravitational constant G has been measured since more than 200 years. It seems impossible to find a precise value for G. In this paper, I will analyze the reasons for that issue, according Gravitomagnetism and the Coriolis Gravitation Theory. In my paper?On the...

This publication concerns the fundamentals of the dynamics of masses interacting by gravitation. We start with the Maxwell Analogy for Gravitation (or the “Heaviside field”), and we develop a model. This model of dynamics, allow us to quantify the transfer...

The concept of free will is central to our lives, as we make day-to-day decisions, and to our culture, in our ethical and legal systems. The very concept implies that what we choose can produce a change in our physical environment, whether by pressing a switch to turn...

In 1911, Max Planck?s equations indicated the presence of a real energy intrinsic to the vacuum of space. It has become known asthe Zero Point Energy (ZPE) because it is present even if the vacuum is cooled to absolute zero, or about The ZPE consists of...

Revised version. This paper was written in honour of Franco Selleri, faithful defender of reason in physics, who committed his efforts to “the liberation of time from the enslavement to space”. – Pointing to the cleft between the idea of a temporal...

Presented at XXV International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics, Mexico, August 2004. Following Minkowski in 1908, we consider the relative velocity to be the Minkowski space-like vector. We show that the Lorentz boost entails the relative velocity...

Assuming the existence of a preferred aether frame and the anisotropy of the one-way speed of light in platforms different from the aether frame, we derive the space and time transformations relative to bodies moving in any direction of space and not only in the...

It is natural to think of space as finite but without edges. The simplest geometry that eliminates the edges of a structure is a sphere, and to close a three-dimensional space we need a 4-sphere, the surface of a four-dimensional ball. Describing space as the surface...

We consider major precepts of today’s Standard Model of the Universe, comparing them to the precepts of the alternate “Electric Universe” Model. Written from a non-professional vantage point, this paper highlights aspects of the electric model that...

“We do not stumble over mountains – we stumble over mole hills” – Confucius;This philosophical motto continues to be a welcome inspiration to a distant view of science in general and physics in particular. Here the mole hill serves as metaphor...

For a ‘bola’ with identical masses rotating freely in space, a Lorentz-boosted observer sees a time-varying momentum and kinetic energy, in violation of special-relativistic momentum and energy conservation laws. In the moving frame, the bola string is...

Acceleration due to gravity is voltage. Gravity is acceleration. Voltage is acceleration. Gravity and voltage are synonymous terms. The 1.86×10 -9 kg-mass herein referred to as 186 represents intrinsic charge, e. The 186 ether mass is the source of gravity or...
