But what now?!



But what now?!

When you are inter­ested in physics you must read “Unbe­liev­able”!

Einstein’s Spe­cial Rel­a­tiv­ity The­ory (SRT) is based on the assump­tion or premise that vac­uum is absolute empty space. So Ein­stein assumed that in vac­uum there exists absolutely noth­ing and there­fore no ether; nei­ther absolute or dragged.

We demon­strated that the denial of the dragged ether was not jus­ti­fied. This con­clu­sion how­ever does not proof the Spe­cial Rel­a­tiv­ity The­ory is incor­rect. The thing we proved is that the dragged ether is strongly sup­ported by exper­i­men­tal evi­dence of stel­lar aber­ra­tion and the mea­sure­ments of Fizeau. One con­clu­sion is cer­tain: dragged ether was unjustly rejected.

Appar­ently the explana­tory power of the Rel­a­tiv­ity The­ory is great. This the­ory would never have been accepted and unques­tioned for almost a cen­tury if it were not. A the­ory, once accepted, is not easy aban­doned. The con­se­quence of the accep­tance was that sci­ence did not look any­more for alter­na­tive solu­tions respec­tively the­o­ries. One can state that after sci­ence embraced the Rel­a­tiv­ity The­ory the search for alter­na­tives was aban­doned. After SRT was accepted sci­ence from that moment fiercely rejected any alternative.

Almost a cen­tury after the first arti­cle of Ein­stein con­cern­ing the Spe­cial Rel­a­tiv­ity the­ory in 1905 there is hardly any doubt about the valid­ity of this the­ory. Every sci­en­tist has grown up with the belief that the the­ory is valid. Inher­ent is the lack of com­mit­ment for sci­ence to look at alternatives.

The SRT only gives a pos­si­ble expla­na­tion for some rel­a­tivis­tic obser­va­tions like stel­lar aber­ra­tion and the Doppler effect; how­ever the exact mea­sure­ments can­not be pre­dicted with SRT. Until now it is has been impos­si­ble to con­vince sci­en­tists to look at the pos­si­bil­i­ties the denied ether the­ory offers to account for rel­a­tivis­tic events.

Until now it was not pos­si­ble to inter­est any­one to look any closer at the pos­si­bil­i­ties the ether the­ory offers. The ether the­ory is con­tra­dict­ing SRT because this the­ory assumes that in vac­uum a dragged ether exists, while SRT explic­itly needs an absolute empty space to be valid. There­fore expert sci­en­tists in this field expe­ri­ence the ether approach as an attack on their knowl­edge. Because of that the­o­ret­i­cal physi­cists reject the ether with­out valid arguments.

Demon­strat­ing the the­o­ret­i­cal pos­si­bil­ity of an alter­na­tive is not suf­fi­cient any­more to moti­vate sci­en­tists to look at the pos­si­bil­i­ties dragged ether offers to describe phys­i­cal phe­nom­ena. What can be done is to show the tremen­dous explana­tory capac­ity of the ether the­ory and hope some sci­en­tists will make a seri­ous attempt to com­pre­hend it. This is the goal of this book. A small chance but worth try­ing. Although the ether the­ory describes the rel­a­tivis­tic events very well, the final con­clu­sion that this the­ory might be a bet­ter expla­na­tion for obser­va­tions is up to science.

What I like per­son­ally about the ether the­ory, as described in this book, is that the mys­te­ri­ous aspects of nuclear physics, par­ti­cle physics and astron­omy dis­ap­pear. Mol­e­c­u­lar quan­tum mechan­ics, chem­istry, biol­ogy, elec­tron­ics, mechan­ics and all the other exact sci­ences are basi­cally explained by clas­sic physics. Atomic and sub­atomic quan­tum mechan­ics, the sci­ence of the 20th cen­tury, achieved almost unbe­liev­able progress. There is no doubt at all that this sci­ence describes the obser­va­tions extremely well. How­ever quan­tum mechan­ics have one flaw; it is almost pure mathematics.

The pre­sented ether the­ory has the pos­si­bil­i­ties to com­bine quan­tum physics, with the inher­ent uncer­tainty, and the tra­di­tional deter­min­is­tic physics. On the sub­atomic scale the forces are unknown. In nuclear physics sub­atomic forces must exist. How­ever one does not know the ori­gin of these forces, how big they are and at what dis­tance these forces work.

The unknown, the lack in real­iza­tion of the inher­ent phys­i­cal processes, causes this sci­ence to be highly exper­i­men­tal. The math­e­mat­i­cal inter­pre­ta­tion of data deter­mines the implied physics. The the­ory is only adjusted in case new data con­tra­dicts math­e­mat­i­cally the premises. The the­ory is deter­mined by the best math­e­mat­i­cal solu­tion. The notion of what hap­pens in the sub-​atomic world is abstracted from the math­e­mat­i­cal out­come. Actu­ally one is in the dark.

Quan­tum Mechan­ics should be con­sid­ered an empir­i­cal sci­ence rather than a the­o­ret­i­cal one. For sub-​atomic physics there is hardly a the­ory that describes the under­ly­ing phys­i­cal processes.

The ether the­ory, how­ever sim­ple and ele­men­tary described in this book, gives the pos­si­bil­ity to under­stand the under­ly­ing phys­i­cal processes. This book makes an attempt to describe the fan­tas­tic pos­si­bil­i­ties the ether the­ory offers to under­stand phys­i­cal phenomena.

When you are interested in physics you must read “Unbelievable“!

Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory (SRT) is based on the assumption or premise that vacuum is absolute empty space. So Einstein assumed that in vacuum there exists absolutely nothing  and therefore no ether; neither absolute or dragged.

We demonstrated that the denial of the dragged ether was not justified. This conclusion however does not proof the Special Relativity Theory is incorrect. The thing we proved is that the dragged ether is strongly supported by experimental evidence of stellar aberration and the measurements of Fizeau. One conclusion is certain: dragged ether was unjustly rejected.

Apparently the explanatory power of the Relativity Theory is great. This theory would never have been accepted and unquestioned for almost a century if it were not. A theory, once accepted, is not easy abandoned. The consequence of the acceptance was that science did not look anymore for alternative solutions respectively theories. One can state that after science embraced the Relativity Theory the search for alternatives was abandoned. After SRT was accepted science from that moment fiercely rejected any alternative.

Almost a century after the first article of Einstein concerning the Special Relativity theory in 1905 there is hardly any doubt about the validity of this theory. Every scientist has grown up with the belief that the theory is valid. Inherent is the lack of commitment for science to look at alternatives.

The SRT only gives a possible explanation for some relativistic observations like stellar aberration and the Doppler effect; however the exact measurements cannot be predicted with SRT. Until now it is has been impossible to convince scientists to look at the possibilities the denied ether theory offers to account for relativistic events.

Until now it was not possible to interest anyone to look any closer at the possibilities the ether theory offers. The ether theory is contradicting SRT because this theory assumes that in vacuum a dragged ether exists, while SRT explicitly needs an absolute empty space to be valid. Therefore expert scientists in this field experience the ether approach as an attack on their knowledge. Because of that theoretical physicists reject the ether without valid arguments.

Demonstrating the theoretical possibility of an alternative is not sufficient anymore to motivate scientists to look at the possibilities dragged ether offers to describe physical phenomena. What can be done is to show the tremendous explanatory capacity of the ether theory and hope some scientists will make a serious attempt to comprehend it. This is the goal of this book. A small chance but worth trying. Although the ether theory describes the relativistic events very well, the final conclusion that this theory might be a better explanation for observations is up to science.

What I like personally about the ether theory, as described in this book, is that the mysterious aspects of nuclear physics, particle physics and astronomy disappear. Molecular quantum mechanics, chemistry, biology, electronics, mechanics and all the other exact sciences are basically explained by classic physics. Atomic and subatomic quantum mechanics, the science of the 20th century, achieved almost unbelievable progress. There is no doubt at all that this science describes the observations extremely well. However quantum mechanics have one flaw; it is almost pure mathematics.

The presented ether theory has the possibilities to combine quantum physics, with the inherent uncertainty, and the traditional deterministic physics. On the subatomic scale the forces are unknown. In nuclear physics subatomic forces must exist. However one does not know the origin of these forces, how big they are and at what distance these forces work.

The unknown, the lack in realization of the inherent physical processes, causes this science to be highly experimental. The mathematical interpretation of data determines the implied physics. The theory is only adjusted in case new data contradicts mathematically the premises. The theory is determined by the best mathematical solution. The notion of what happens in the sub-atomic world is abstracted from the mathematical outcome. Actually one is in the dark.

Quantum Mechanics should be considered an empirical science rather than a theoretical one. For sub-atomic physics there is hardly a theory that describes the underlying physical processes.

The ether theory, however simple and elementary described in this book, gives the possibility to understand the underlying physical processes. This book makes an attempt to describe the fantastic possibilities  the ether theory offers to understand physical phenomena.
