This article would be one of my articles that should make you realize that when I am talking about accelerated motion in post-modern physics I mean a fundamentally different definition than that presented in classical physics and this also applies to uniform motion!
So, in this scientific article, I want to define accelerated motion just as I have defined uniform motion in the previous article.
In classical physics, we have that there are two kinds of motion in the universe, which are uniform motion and accelerated motion. And while we defined uniform motion to be motion with constant speed in a particular direction, we defined accelerated motion to be motion with changing speed and direction.
We were able to determine that we are in accelerated motion by observing how the quantities of space and time change during our motion and also by the accompanied sensation of inertia.
Now, in classical physics, acceleration is defined thus:
- Accelerated motion is motion with changing speed and direction.
The above just like the classical definition of uniform motion is quantitative. It is based on the quantities of space and time and not on the qualities of space and time like we now find in post-modern physics.
In post-modern physics, we have a qualitative definition of both uniform motion and accelerated motion, and accelerated motion is defined thus:
- Accelerated motion is motion in accelerated space with respect to both uniform time and accelerated time.
It is easy to see the qualitativeness of the post-modern definition of accelerated motion which is first evident from the new fact that accelerated motion is motion in accelerated space.
So, in post-modern physics, we say that a body is in accelerated motion when it moves in accelerated space and not in uniform space like the case for uniform motion.
Also, when you look at the post-modern definition of accelerated motion, it is easy to see how the square of time represented by acceleration comes into play.
The square of time comes into play for accelerated motion because of the two qualities or forms of time in the universe and not due to the solely quantitative time of classical and modern physics. This is an important truth about accelerated motion that you must take from this scientific post.
This has always been observed to be a unique character of accelerated motion since classical physics but it was not explained. However, now in post-modern physics, we are learning that it is because of the two qualities of time and not in any way because of the quantities of time.
This is the point where we have to look critically at relative space and time which are the space and time of classical physics and which were inserted into the classical definition of accelerated motion above and even for uniform motion in my earlier scientific article.
There is no way we can know from classical physics that the square of time found in the description of accelerated motion is due to the qualitative nature of accelerated motion. But in post-modern physics, we know this because we are no longer dealing with relative space and time but with absolute space and time.
In post-modern physics, we are dealing with the physics of absolute space and time and not the physics of relative space and time. This is the major distinction between the post-modern physics and classical physics or modern physics.
The absolute nature of time is why in post-modern physics time squared is recognized as simply the result of the product of the two qualities of time and not due to the product of quantitative time as in classical physics.
In post-modern physics, absolute acceleration is not just a quantity, it is also a quality and this qualitative understanding of acceleration is tied with the true understanding of our other experiences of accelerated motion in the universe.
Also, the qualitative description of accelerated motion presented above is what leads to the existence of two qualitatively distinctive absolute quantities of motion, which are the absolute accelerated velocity and absolute acceleration.
Both absolute quantities are real and they have their distinctive effects on our experience of accelerated motion. These effects have been a major discussion in some of my scientific articles in this blog.
Now, we know that there is always a limit to how far a lie can go. So, also it is with classical physics and its definition of accelerated motion and even of uniform motion. What is this limit that really becomes evident for the classical definition of accelerated motion?
This limit is the absence of any fundamental principle underlying accelerated motion. You know that even in classical physics, we have the principle of inertia which underlies uniform motion, but how is it that classical physics could not provide a similar principle which should underlie accelerated motion?
The above is one of the strong irrefutable criticisms against the classical definition of accelerated motion and when you go further to analyse the situation, this criticism challenges the whole edifice of physics built for the past 400 years.
So, in post-modern physics, we realize that there is a principle called the absolute principle of non-inertia which underlies accelerated motion, and this simple principle states that accelerated motion and accelerated rest are indistinguishable.
I will not like to go into details about this principle as I have done so in some of my scientific posts and also in the Treatise.
Now, it happens that in post-modern physics, we know that we are moving in accelerated motion when we move in accelerated space with respect to both uniform time and accelerated time, and in the cases of accelerated motion such as that due to gravity, we know that accelerated motion is indistinguishable from accelerated rest.
I want you to read the above carefully again and understand what I am informing you about accelerated motion and even about gravity.
In post-modern physics, this principle has two phases which are divided based on how it applies to accelerated motion in the atomic and non-atomic worlds.
For all accelerated motions in the atomic world, we have the strong phase of the principle of non-inertia where all accelerated motions are indistinguishable from accelerated rest.
While for all accelerated motions in the non-atomic world, we have the weak phase of the principle of non-inertia where some kind of accelerations like those due to gravity are indistinguishable from accelerated rest while the rest which are due to any other influence are distinguishable from accelerated rest.
I speak of indistinguishable and distinguishable based on the sensation of inertia and not the existence of inertia which is pervasive for all motions.
This scientific article about accelerated motion gives us the inkling that the physics of this post-modern era will be absolute and very qualitative unlike the physics of the classical and modern eras which was relative and very quantitative.
We are beginning a new way of doing science which our predecessors could not have imagined. This new way of doing science which is what post-modern physics is all about will increase the accomplishment of science and foster the fulfilment of its grand purpose.
So, know today that in post-modern physics, accelerated motion is simply motion in accelerated space with respect to uniform time and accelerated time and that accelerated motion is governed by the absolute principle of non-inertia.
Until next time,
I will be here.
