This book looks at the historical development of atomic theory to date in the light of the failure of physicists over the last century to explain the transmission and generation of gravitation at any level, be it sub-atomic, atomic, macroscopic or cosmic.
This failure is the main cause of the current crisis in physics, the science on which all other sciences are based.
As physics today is part of the huge worldwide science industry, or 'scientific establishment', that recieves enormous amounts of taxpayers money from governments around the world to build, amongst other things, highly expensive space probes and particle accelerators, physicists are not generally inclined to accept that there is a problem.
But some indicators are, recent books entitled 'The End of Science' and 'The End of Physics', the fact that in the last ten years one third of all university physics departments in the UK have closed and that expert commentators have stated that there has been no significant development in the last 70 odd years towards a better understanding of the atomic structure of matter.
The assumptions that remain as the basis of modern atomic physics date back to the Greek philosophers of over 2500 years ago and the two that are the most important have consistently been shown by experiment in the last 20 years to be invalid, but physicists apparently do not want to accept this evidence.
But if this evidence is accepted as indicating a different structure for matter at atomic level, and of the interactions of atoms in gases, liquids and solids than that of currently accepted theories, it immediately leads in a new direction, which when followed immediately puts us on a path to a relatively simple explanation of the force that dominates our lives.
This solution is confirmed by the fact that it also provides clear explanations of the atomic interactions that are the cause of all the other forces of nature that we experience every moment of every day of our lives, such as convection and conduction, which were previously either inexplicable or vague in terms of current theory.
