Description

In 1687, in his Principia Mathematica, Newton defined the laws of motion and universal gravitation, including the mathematical relationship between force, mass, and acceleration; definitions that have become the defining concept of modern-day classical mechanics. However, in the Principia, he also stated ?I will not define time, space, place and motion, as being well known to all,? an unfortunate omission that has permitted others, primarily G. F. FitzGerald, H. A. Lorentz, and Albert Einstein, to propose absurd interpretations of these phenomena, which have unfortunately become accepted by the scientific community and prevail to this day. It is primarily due to the acceptance of Einstein?s absurd interpretations of time and space that the impossible theories of special and general relativity have posed such an imponderable problem for the scientific community.

It is therefore the purpose of this presentation to develop the rational definitions of time, space, and force, derived entirely from their innate, intrinsic properties and without recourse to the various experiments that have been performed in the past and used to arrive at the present-day misinterpretations of these phenomena.

As an addendum, it will be explained how the theories of relativity have been an impediment to the rational progress of science for the last 100 years.
