Should we allow imagination to define physics?

Should we let imagination define our reality?  If so how much should we allow science to dependent on it? Most if not all explanatory models of reality rely to some extent on ones imagination because they use unobservable quantities to support them. For example Einstein used the concept of a space-time dimension to define gravity.  … Read more

Finally a logical explanation of the field around a solitary charge.

Have you ever wondered why so many seeming rational scientists make seemly irrational assumptions to explain why our universe behaves the way it does and why Einstein was unable see, as Robert Oerter pointed out in his book “The Theory of Almost Everything: the magic of relativistic Quantum electrodynamics or QED. For example he tells … Read more

Why the “Big Rip” cannot happen

Recent results from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) confirmed that the universe is mainly made of “Dark Energy” thought to be responsible for the current acceleration of its expansion.  But what would happen if the rate of acceleration remained constant or increased with time?  The answer according to some is a “Big Rip” in … Read more

Holding scientist’s accountable

Have you ever wondered why so many seeming rational scientists make irrational or groundless assumptions to explain why our universe is what it is? For example many proponents of the Big Bang theory assume the universe expanded from a singularity which is by definition a region of space in which mass is concentrated in a … Read more

Incorporating electromagnetism in General Relativity

Einstein was often quoted as saying “If a new theory was not based on a physical image simple enough for a child to understand, it was probably worthless.” For example in his General Theory of Relativity he derived gravity in terms of a curvature in the geometry of space and time. Additionally he showed us … Read more
