Subtitle: The Physicist Versus the Metaphysicist
In today’s science, we have a very simplistic and naive understanding of space and time, and it is no wonder why we cannot unify physics after decades of sincere and tremendous efforts.
We only accept the observable and purely mechanistic space and time as the only real space and time important for science, but the true nature or truth about space and time is not so simple.
In this article I want to discuss how we should understand space and time in the universe, I mean both in the ponderable (large-scale) and electrical (small-scale) universes. You will appreciate my aim when you realize that in today’s science, we simply assume that the operations of our meter sticks and especially our clocks apply the same in both universes.
In science, there are quite a number of conceptual frameworks to describe different aspects of the universe. We have Newtonian mechanics, Maxwell’s electrodynamics, thermodynamics, relativity and quantum mechanics.
Each of these frameworks has exposed so much about the universe to us, however, relativity is the conceptual framework that truly reveals the fundamental principles of the universe.
So, in this article, we would be critically looking at how the physicist and the metaphysicist apply this theory in understanding the universe.
The Physicist and Physical Space and Time
Look into our current theory and you will realize that time is fundamentally perceived the same and applied similarly for general relativity which describes the macro universe and for quantum mechanics which describes the micro universe. In both theories, space and time are respectively what our meter sticks and clocks tell us, thus, they are operationally the same in both theories.
The above constitutes our purely physical perception of space and time. But the danger of the physical perception of space and time to the physicist is that he thinks it applies in all domains.
He doesn’t bother to ask himself, what is the experience of space and time to a piece of rock which is ponderable and has no charge and the experience of space and time to an electron which is electrical and has charge?
The reality of space and time to both forms of matter must be known by the physicist if he must have an encompassing understanding of all things. He should know how a piece of rock, which is ponderable as he is, perceives space and time, and how an electron which is not ponderable but electrical perceives space and time.
This is the basic requirement for the understanding of the universe. A physicist who understands this would exactly write nature’s laws.
For while in general relativity spacetime curves and it is dynamical and in quantum mechanics spacetime is Euclidean and quantized, these differences are superficial and are unimportant to the true understanding of the nature of space and time in both universes.
Ironically, we shall find the unifying principles of both worlds when we understand how the true absolute experience of space and time differs in both universes, the ponderable universe, and the electrical universe.
A physicist equipped with Einstein’s relativity and working in a particle accelerator and probably observing the time it took for an electron to travel from point A to point B may conclude that it took the electron 50 seconds which is a dilated time.
The principles of relativity as they apply to the physicist and to the electron
The important question becomes, would the electron agree to this? Does the electron also use clocks just like the physicist? This is the important question. I know special relativity teaches us about time dilation and so there is a difference in measured time, in that the electron experiences time dilation while the physicist at rest doesn’t, but that is not what I am talking about.
What I am talking about is not the quantitative difference in the measurements of time, but the true qualitative difference in the experiences of time for both the electron and the physicist. Is the electron also using clocks to measure its time dilation like the physicist?
Remember that the physicist is outside the atomic world, if the physicist were to be inside the atomic world, would he still use clocks? Would he realize that he had been wrong using clocks all along?
A particle accelerator
Yes, he would. And to further enlighten you, the physicist, if exposed to revelatory knowledge or a priori science, would realize that he had also been wrong in his understanding of his true experience of time outside the atom. He would realize that the use of clocks and meter sticks to understand the universe is a fundamentally wrong approach.
And if we come to space, the physicist must ask himself if the accelerating electron also uses meter sticks to measure the contraction of space as he does. He should be more concern with the qualitative difference in the experience of space between himself and the electron and not in the quantitative difference in the measurement of space between himself and the electron.
This approach is what would furnish the physicist with the true understanding of all things
The study of the true experience of space and time in both universes is important to post-modern physics. For true knowledge, it is more important that we understand how these entities are experienced in the ponderable and electrical universes than how we simply measure them according to quantitative science.
This is the power of absolute science which is concerned about how we experience space and time, and it is the major difference between absolute science and relative science which is more concerned about how we measure or quantify space and time. The experiential nature of space and time is very important to the physicist and the unified field theory.
The reality of space and time is more than what our eyes tell us, and we must understand in entirety the true nature of these entities and how they are experienced and not just how they are measured in the universe.
We are more concerned about how we measure and quantify space and time than how we experience them. This approach should only be useful for practical purposes but not for establishing true scientific understanding.
This new approach is what underlies the theory of the universe and the new scientific method. Experiential absolute space and time and mensural relative space and time respectively constitute the two kinds of science, and I want you to know today that experiential absolute space and time are the true space and time of the unified field.
The physicist working in his lab doesn’t care how the accelerating electron experience time, he only cares about how he measures time for the electron using (his) clocks. He doesn’t care about how the electron experiences space, he only cares about how he measures space for the electron using meter sticks.
The physicist proceeds to impose his measurements of space and time on the accelerating electron. This is cold and ignorant science.
How the electron really experiences space and time which is different from how the physicist experience space and time should be of the most concern. These experiences are beyond what clocks and meter sticks can tell us.
The physicist is equipped with two great theories, which are general relativity and quantum mechanics, and despite their different conceptual frameworks, space and time are purely mechanical in both theories. To the physicist, space and time are not entities with any independent existence of matter.
The physicist keeps wondering why his two great theories, general relativity, and quantum mechanics, cannot unify. He doesn’t know that his current crisis is caused by his non-recognition of the differences in the experience of space and time by himself and the electron. His method of scientific investigation which recognizes an objective universe is his bane.
The operational similarity of space and time in both theories underlyingly implies or causes the physicist to conceive that space and time are experienced the same in the ponderable and electrical universes, which is not true. I will show you how space and time are truly experienced in both universes. Be ready for a paradigm shift in your understanding of time.
The Metaphysicist and Metaphysical Space and Time
Who is a metaphysicist? A metaphysicist is simply one who understands the subtle laws of absolute science. He understands that the concepts of metaphysical space and time do not connote abstract non-investigative concepts.
Note: I have decided to use the term “metaphysicist” and not metaphysician so as to eliminate the old notion we have of what it means to investigate the metaphysical. The term metaphysicist sounds fitting and it aligns with the new fact that the true metaphysical laws of the universe are now being discerned.
The metaphysicist understands that absolute metaphysical space and time simply refers to the experiential nature of space and time, and are not far-fetched or undefinable concepts as the physicist would think.
In the lab of the metaphysicist, he realizes that metaphysical space and time has two forms, which are: uniform space and time and accelerated space and time. He is also equipped with a theory just like the physicist above, but his theory is absolute relativity, which is the conceptual framework upon which the universe was designed.
So, the metaphysicist is a master of his craft just like the physicist. Metaphysics is now being established as a science just like physics.
So, how does he approach scientific investigation using his theory of absolute relativity? Importantly he understands how the two forms of time are experienced by himself and the electron. So, what is this encompassing understanding?
He understands that corresponding to the three variants of motion there are three experiences of space and time. I have afore-described the three variants of motion in the universe, but I will outline them here:
- The uniform motion of ponderable bodies.
- The accelerated motion ponderable bodies.
- The accelerated motion of electrical bodies.
The metaphysicist being a ponderable (non-charged) body realizes that he experiences the first two kinds of motion above and does not experience the third kind of motion which is what the accelerating electron experiences.
So, he knows that there is a fundamental divide between his experiences and those of the electron. Unlike the physicist, the metaphysicist does not proceed to impose his experience of space and time on the accelerating electron. This is friendly and illuminated science.
The diagram below captures the understanding of the metaphysicist of the experience of the transformations of the two forms of space and time in the universe.
The principles of absolute relativity as they apply to the metaphysicist and to the electron
Note: In the above diagram, uniform space and uniform time are denoted or preceded by the letter “d”, while accelerated space and time are denoted or preceded by the delta symbol Δ. However, tau time which applies for the relativistic motion of the electron is also denoted or preceded by “d” like uniform time and this kind of time will be explained shortly.
The metaphysicist learns from absolute relativity that being a ponderable body, when he moves in uniform motion, he experiences uniform time dilation. And that contrary to special relativity, the accelerating electron does not experience uniform time dilation.
And when the metaphysicist accelerates, he may experience the dilation, contraction or stability of accelerated time and space, and while the electron may experience the same conditions for accelerated space, it doesn’t experience the same relativistic transformations of accelerated time like the metaphysicist.
As shown in the above diagram, the accelerating electron experiences the relativistic transformation of what I call tau time. Listen, tau time simply represents the product of uniform and accelerated times.
In the ponderable universe, the metaphysicist can only experience one form of time for any state of motion, but in the atomic world, the electron can only experience both forms of time. The metaphysicist knows that in the atomic world, he cannot separate uniform and accelerated time, just like he can in the ponderable universe.
Let me help you understand this. In the physical world, you look at a particular clock calibrated against a particular standard in order to establish what physical time is. Now, an electron would have to look at two different clocks calibrated against two different standards in order to establish physical time.
This analogy captures the distinction between our world of macro matter and the atomic world.
The accelerating electron experiences the transformation of two fundamentally different forms of time, and only the metaphysicist knows this. The metaphysicist or every ponderable body experiences the relativistic transformations of one form of time separately, while the electron or every electrical body experiences the relativistic transformations of both forms of time together.
Absolute relativity informs the metaphysicist that when a non-charged body moves in uniform motion, it experiences uniform time, and when a non-charged body accelerates, it experiences accelerated time; however, when an electrical body accelerates, it experiences both uniform time and accelerated time. Isn’t this remarkable!
Listen, while the metaphysicist or a non-charged body can experience either form of time, the electron or an electrical body cannot. The electron experiences the two forms of time together. In the atomic world, the two forms of time are fused or inseparable and this fusion is represented as tau time which is simply the product of uniform time and accelerated time.
And when it comes to space, looking at the diagram above, you would see that the metaphysicist or a non-charged body, when in uniform motion experiences uniform space, and when in accelerated motion experiences accelerated space.
The electron or any charged body experiences accelerated space when it accelerates just like the metaphysicist. The experiences of the metaphysicist and the electron when they accelerate only differ with respect to absolute time.
This is a new understanding of the experience of space and time in the universe which the physicist using clocks and meter sticks cannot know. He has to probe the experiential nature of space and time beyond the domain of quantitative science. However, the metaphysicist embraces and understands the qualitative aspects of space and time which are what the forms of space and time represent.
To the metaphysicist, space and time are real experiential entities that exist independently of any matter in the universe. The scientific method of the metaphysicist recognizes the relative objectivity of the universe and this empowers him with a greater and complete understanding of the universe than the physicist. The universe is relatively objective.
This article exposes to you the Omni-perception of the operations of the universe the metaphysicist has over the physicist. The metaphysicist is aware of the subtle differences in the experience of time in both the ponderable and electrical universe which the physicist doesn’t know.
As aforesaid, to the physicist, space and time do not exist independent of matter and this is why he is so dependent on clocks and meter sticks in order to understand the universe.
But to the metaphysicist, space and time are real entities that exist independently of any matter in the universe, so the metaphysicist does not depend on clocks and meter sticks in order to understand the universe.
That is why he has proceeded to reveal in this age of science the real metaphysical nature of light, gravity and other aspects of reality. He has laid down a new basis, in fact, his own basis for understanding the universe in a metaphysical way. This is the important accomplishment of Echa and Science.
The metaphysicist, unlike the physicist, knows that clocks and meter sticks cannot reveal the true nature of the universe, and he doesn’t impose his experiences of space and time on the objects of his study like the physicist unwittingly does.
The physicist assumes that he and the electron are experiencing one and the same form of time which his clock represents. But the metaphysicist knows that he experiences one form of time for any state of motion, but the electron experiences two forms of time for any of its state of motion.
The philosophical base of the physicist and metaphysicist are different. The physicist embraces objectivity, but the metaphysicist embraces relative objectivity.
The metaphysicist understands, as elucidated, how the different forms of space and time apply to the different kind of motions in the universe. The physicist only assumes what he observes and wrongly takes that it applies in all domains.
This is why we have failed to unify physics, and which has led to the current crisis at the heart of physics. The current unification problem of physics is due to the inability of the physicist to distinguish between how non-charged and charged bodies differently experience space and time.
However, the crisis is now over! The success of the investigation of experiential absolute space and time has resolved the crisis in physics!
So, be happy, be illuminated!
