Terminal Speed of an Electron Accelerated by an Electric Field
An electron of mass m and charge –e moving at time t with speed v and acceleration dv/dt in a straight line, in an electric field E, comes under  acceleration by an impressed force –eE. It is proposed that the electron also encounters a radiation reaction force, ...

An Explanation of Inertia outside Relativity
An Explanation of Inertia outside Relativity An electric charge Q of mass m, in the form of a spherical shell of radius a, moving at time t with velocity v and acceleration dv/dt, generates an electro-dynamic field X proportional to the acceleration. The field X acts on the self-same charge Q to pro...

Fusion Mass Losses and Tunnels Formed between Touching Nucleons
         When nucleons fuse with neighbors, there is mass loss and great energy emitted.  We discuss the great jump in fusion mass lost when four nucleons are fused together compared to three.   About 4 times as much mass is lost, but we show how this is large...

On the Cause or Causes of Inertia
This article sets out two possible causes of inertia.  The first is that a sub-atomic substance – aether – restricts the movement of atoms and atomic matter.  The second is that vibrations within atoms restrict the movement of atoms and atomic matter.

Basic Historical, Philosophical and Physical Reasons for Denial of Main Physical Theories of the 20th Century.
The purpose of the physical theories by theoretical physicist produced in the 20th century (special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, force fields theories using force-mediating particles, the Big Bang and the Higgs boson theory) is to conceal the existence of physical fields as a real mate...

The Mediums for Light are Hiding in Plain Sight
The propagation of light remains one of the enduring mysteries of science. Unlike every other known kind of wave, it travels at a constant speed without a medium of propagation. What supports its travel in empty space? Why is its speed so constant? And why is it so very fast? Even Einstein gave up t...

The Special Theory of Relativity is a House of Cards Built on a Parlor Trick and Sustained by Circular Reasoning
A simple change in experimental design shows that Galileo’s and Newton’s relativity principle applies only to the observed motion of physical objects, not to their actual motion. It also reveals that observations restricted to inertial reference frames are insufficient to support valid i...

Introducing Integral Geometry: Are Notational Flaws Responsible For the Inability to Combine General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics?
Parallel line segments are the basic graphical foundation for geometrical field theories such as General Relativity. Although the concept of parallel and curved lines have been well researched for over a century as a description of gravity, certain controversial issues have persisted, namely point s...

Light, Gravity, and Mass: A Particle Theory
The electromagnetic spectrum including visible light is most often characterized by wave theory. But there are effects that indicate it has particle characteristics. Hence, there is an ongoing discussion of wave particle duality. There has been work trying to make a wave act like a particle. This pa...

On the Structure of Atoms
The idea of atoms being structured by particles that are physically attached to each other, like connected pieces of a Meccano set, has been around a long time. As a broad proposition, it has a certain appeal. However, it is not in vogue at the present time, perhaps because it is difficult to envisi...

The Essence of the Universal Spacetime Theory (UST)
According to the UST, the toroidal spacetime entity called toryx is responsible for the creation of all kinds of matter in the Universe. What we perceive as matter, field, gravity, mass, charge and energy, etc. are merely various metamorphoses of polarized spacetime. Capable of existing in four topo...

Michelson-Morley Interferometer Experiment of 1887: “Null” Result
The Michelson-Morley Interferometer Experiment of 1887 is often cited as one of the cornerstones (and perhaps THE cornerstone) upon which Einstein built his theory of special relativity. Allegedly, it “proved” there was no aether. Once Einstein postulated that the speed of light was inva...

Accelerating Clocks Run Faster and Slower
Einstein’s relativity contends that time, as measured by clocks, slows with increasing speed, becoming especially noticeable as the speed of light is approached.  Discussions of this usually focus on constant speeds, albeit near the speed of light, and phenomena such as muon decay (near l...
