  • What Experiments on Diffraction of Photons Say (2012) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    The foundation of quantum theory rests on the notion that a particle is a localized wave-packet formed from the superposition of plane waves of many different frequencies, all grouped around some central frequency.  Several experiments conducted by Panarella confirm that the wave nature of light appears with a collection of photons, but dispute it for single photons.  Experiments show that photons cannot produce a diffraction pattern when they are detected one at a time or as isolated entities; photons need to be clumped together in order to create a diffraction pattern.  A separate laser diffraction experiment conducted by a Brazilian team shows that the course of light rays changes with the motion of the Earth, and their results differ in amount of 21% from the prediction of special relativity theory.  And so in addition to the original findings of Panarella's experiments, this new finding is further evidence that something is wrong with contemorary physics.  The purpose of this note is to bring conflicting observations of light into agreement with one common principle.  


  • Muller's Experimental Disproof of Special Relativity (2011) [Updated 3 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    Muller's 2003 experiment confirms that special relativity is a failed theory.  A voltage is induced when a conductor moves in a straight line together with a magnet even though there is no relative motion between the two components.  This note gives rational explanation to Muller's test by way of a new physics.

     

     


  • A Closed-Loop Self-Organizing System for Cosmological and Biological Evolution (2010) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    The chances for life to originate spontaneously appear so small that it can mathematically be dismissed as never happened. The purpose of this note is to put forward a cyclic universe model that can solve this problem, along with other questions about biological evolution. The proposed cosmological model is based on exploratory ideas, and so it may not always agree with conventional wisdom. Yet the principles involved seem to explain biological evolution better than those of present-day theories. In this setting, the universe follows an infinite cycle of recurring events, while evolution takes place with each consecutive cycle. By such means, the chances for life to originate spontaneously become a near certainty, and complex systems emerge via the path of least resistance. This unique system also explains how major groups of animals rapidly appeared in the Cambrian explosion, and why so much history about evolution is missing from the fossil records.


  • Rethinking the Principle of Inertia (2010) [Updated 3 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    An old principle of inertia can explain special relativity in a new way.  With a proper understanding of motion, the speed of light is constant c only with reference to the source of emission, while the magnitude of its average velocity remains constant c regardless of the motion of the emitter.  This interpretation on the invariance of light speed was published in a previous report, but the purpose now is to make that presentation more clear.  And for something new, a self-sufficient cause for inertia is to be explored.


  • Re-Examination of Newton's First Law (2008) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    Trouble with Newton's First Law was found in my original study, but the trouble is not easy to see.  In fact, most readers fail to see it. Old ways of thinking stand in their way, and so the purpose of this note is to reexamine Newton's First Law, and to put its trouble in perspective with the state of modern physics.


  • Inflationary Effects on the Formation of Galaxies (2008) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    This note is based on ideas from a previous study about force-free circular motion. Its purpose is to elaborate on the formation of galaxies, and to make clear why the bars of a spiral galaxy exist.


  • Comments on 'A New Twist in Physics' (2008) [Updated 9 years ago]

    According to Newton's First Law, a body in motion tends to keep a straight line of travel unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. There are no exceptions to the rule because it is thought to be an act of Nature. Indeed, a ball twirling from a string tries to move in a straight line, but is this tendency really just an act of Nature? The purpose of this note is to question our current understanding of motion.


  • Electron Spin and the Emission of Photons (2007) [Updated 9 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    The awkward spin of an electron escapes rational understanding. But by principles from my previous study, the spin is portrayed as a dual spin?with one spin perpendicular to the other. A dual spin as such serves to explain the emission of photons, along with their wave-like pattern, and the speed limit c. Planck's radiation law and the photoelectric effect are also discussed.


  • New Physics Based on Force-Free Circular Motion (2006) [Updated 3 years ago]
    by Mitch Emery   read the paper:

    Present-day theories of the Universe call for all kinds strange things to exist in order to maintain their viability. In fact, it seems the more we know about the Universe, the stranger it gets. Must all of this be so? Or could there just be a problem with the premise on which theories are built? According to Newton's First Law, a body in motion tries to maintain a straight line of travel. There are no exceptions to the rule because it is thought to be an act of Nature. However, this paper argues that unrealized effects from circular motion point to the underlying cause of its tendency to move in a straight line. A phenomenon is then described by which circular motion is force-free by Nature, while space and time each remain separate and absolute entities. Ultimately, it is argued that the Universe can be explained more easily in terms of an appropriately defined force-free circular motion, and that it provides a key to a simple theory of everything. Note: Portions of this paper (enclosed in brackets) have been revised for the purpose of clarification.
