The concept of force is one of the most fundamental concepts in physics. It has assisted us for the past 400 years of quantitative science to explore and to investigate the laws of the universe.
However, post-modern physics is now changing our current understanding of force. Post-modern physics is introducing to us a new kind of force called absolute force, and which is distinct from Newtonian force which you have always known.
It is now of immense significance that you know that we have two different kinds of forces in physics. I have talked about absolute force in some of my articles, but I am convinced that the distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force will be at the centre of post-modern physics.
This conviction is what has propelled me to write this separate article on the distinction between Newtonian (or relative) force and absolute force. This article is very important for your understanding of the universe.
In the Principia, Newton gave us the first ever quantitative description of force when he formally set force as his second law of motion. This quantitative description of force devoid of a qualitative significance is what I sometimes call relative force.
The First Distinction
However, there is another fundamental kind of force in the universe, which is both quantitative and qualitative, and I call this kind of force absolute force. Now, the first major distinction between Newtonian or relative force and absolute force is that Newtonian force is physical while absolute force is metaphysical.
It is from this first distinction that all other possible distinctions between Newtonian force and absolute force are derived. I have taught you in this blog how to understand the metaphysical concepts I introduce to you.
Whenever I refer to the metaphysical, I usually refer to it as it applies to science, and the metaphysical concepts like absolute force or absolute momentum are simply concepts that embody the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the universe.
So, for now, attach no other meaning to the metaphysical concepts I introduce to you, like the absolute force, which is the centre of discussion of this article. I want you to begin to realize that the metaphysical, so long as it is what deals with the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the universe is of great concern to physics and to science.
I want to disabuse you of your prejudice or bias against the metaphysical, for fundamental science can no longer progress without taking into consideration the qualitative aspect of the universe which has been largely ignored for millennia.
You may wonder why I term the investigation of the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the universe as a metaphysical science instead of a physical science. This is because when you really begin to investigate the qualitative nature of the universe, physical observation becomes inefficient.
The unified study or probing of the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the universe forces you to change your perception of reality from the one you are used to according to physical observation to the new perception according to metaphysical observation.
This is why post-modern physics at its base is metaphysical, even though it is easy to see how the metaphysical operations of the universe determine and govern our physical observations of the cosmos.
This possible relationship between the metaphysical and the physical gives post-modern physics an advantageous position over classical and modern physics which are pure physical sciences.
So, Newton gave us a purely physical or quantitative description of force, and this description of force has been the thriving paradigm since Newton. But now we are confronted with a crisis in fundamental science which Newton’s concepts and laws cannot address.
One of such concepts is the Newtonian force. Post-modern physics now reveals to us a new description of force that has helped us resolve in a simple manner the crisis in fundamental science.
Thus, according to the first distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force, Newtonian force is physical, while absolute force is metaphysical, remembering what I have told you above about what the metaphysical means in post-modern physics.
This first distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force is paramount and it is the underlying cause of the remaining three distinctions between Newtonian force and absolute force that I am about to show you.
The Second Distinction
As I have said, the new force is absolute force and it is metaphysical, meaning that it is both quantitative and qualitative. Now, Newtonian force lacking any qualitative significance is a general force which applies to both ponderable and electrical bodies.
There is no boundary or limit imposed on Newtonian force and its application. This is how we understand force according to modern physics. But post-modern physics tells us something different and absolutely fundamental about the concept of force.
In post-modern physics, due to the qualitative nature of the universe, there is a boundary imposed on force and its application. What is this boundary? This boundary is the atomic world.
Unlike Newtonian force which applies both in the atomic and non-atomic world, absolute force applies only in the atomic world. In post-modern physics, only electrical bodies can carry force and not ponderable bodies.
This new truth about force has revolutionary consequences upon physics and how we understand the universe which you will find in my scientific e-book. So, which of these two kinds of force describes or fits our universe? It is absolute force and not Newtonian force.
Though one may talk about Newtonian force when dealing with the physical universe, one must know underlyingly that when we approach the true nature of the universe Newtonian force does not exist.
One must recognize that absolute force does not arise in a blind attempt to redefined force. No, the absolute force arises due to the combined investigation of the quantitative and qualitative natures of the universe which is a broader investigation than Newton’s.
Thus, the newly discovered boundary imposed on force is underlyingly a broader and more illuminating description of force than Newtonian description which applies force without boundaries to both ponderable and electrical bodies.
So, according to the second distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force, Newtonian force is general to all bodies, while absolute force is exclusive to electrical bodies. For coming to this great science blog, you must understand what I now teach you about the universe.
Also, I want you to know that most times whenever I am talking about force on this blog, I am usually referring to absolute force. I just don’t indicate it most times because I don’t want to suddenly disrupt your understanding of force according to classical physics.
But by reading this article, you will be able to determine by yourself when I am referring to absolute force or not. After all, in the long run, absolute force is the only true kind of force that exists in the universe.
We really can’t have two kinds of force in the universe. Newtonian force is simply preserved only as a kind of physical force that we engage when we are less concerned about explicating the true nature of force. The true force is absolute force.
The Third Distinction
What I am about to explain to you will reveal to you one of the most significant flaws in Newton’s description of force. What is this flaw? This flaw is that Newtonian force is not backed by or founded on any fundamental principle of motion.
This in itself is a very grave error which has led to the poor understanding of force in science. Let me briefly explain this situation to you using what you already understand about the universe from classical and modern physics.
If you observe closely the study of momentum, and in this case I mean 4-momentum, the kind of momentum that underlies special relativity, you will realize that it is founded on a principle which we call the principle of inertia.
Now, in modern physics, 4-momentum is founded on the principle of inertia whereas force is not founded on any principle. This is an indication that our description of Newtonian force is empty to say the least and that it is not fundamental.
But this is not the case for absolute force. Absolute force is founded on a newly discovered principle called the (strong phase of the) principle of non-inertia. So, Newtonian force lacks a fundamental principle, while absolute force possesses a fundamental principle.
The principle of non-inertia is the principle upon which the study of absolute force is founded. If Newton had gotten this right, then as his first law is referred to as “the law of inertia”, his second law should have been referred to as the law of non-inertia. But this is not the case.
Just as uniform motion is supported by the law of inertia, that is how non-uniform motion is supported by the law of non-inertia which is missing in Newton’s laws of motion. This is an important oversight in Newton’s laws of motion which we must realize in order to understand the distinctions between Newtonian force and absolute force.
Also, this realization or discovery opens our eyes to the true reason for the crisis in physics and why Newton’s laws of motion and description of force could not account for the practical discoveries of the quantum world and the nature of light in the early 20th-century. Read the article below:
Newtonian force makes no reference to the principle of non-inertia, and due to its solely quantitative nature cannot incorporate this new principle. Newtonian force is at most incomplete, and the absence of the absolute principle of non-inertia in Newton’s description of force is part of what provoked the crisis in physics.
This article reveals to you what is missing in our understanding of force by comparing classical Newtonian force to post-modern absolute force. Absolute force completes our understanding of force. Absolute force is the force of post-modern physics.
Absolute force is based on the principle of non-inertia whereas Newtonian force is not based on any principle of motion. This new insight shows us that our former understanding of force is flawed.
Now, what is the physical consequence of the association of absolute force and the principle of non-inertia? The important physical consequence is that to move in accelerated motion without ever sensing inertia, then carry absolute force.
This experience of accelerated motion devoid of the sensation of inertia for all conditions is the experience of only electrical bodies. Remember I told you above that absolute force only applies to electrical bodies and not ponderable bodies.
This new concept of absolute force cannot be exhausted in a single space. It is very extensive and it will be an integral part of post-modern physics just as Newtonian force is an integral part of classical and modern physics.
This third distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force forces us to no longer talk about force without its associated principle which is the principle of non-inertia. With this insight I sometimes ask myself, how could we have been discussing force without its founding principle. This is a gross oversight on our part.
And now post-modern physics teaches us that every physical quantity in physics is associated with its own exclusive principle of motion. The 4-momentum is associated with the principle of inertia, the 5-momentum is associated with the weak phase of the principle of non-inertia, and absolute force is associated with the strong phase of the principle of non-inertia.
Any attempt to talk about these three quantities or investigate these three quantities without the recognition of their associated principles will only produce incomplete and incoherent results without any fundamental significance.
So, the association of these three absolute quantities (of which absolute force is a part of) with their respective absolute principles should now be a conscious practice in science.
The Fourth Distinction
The fourth distinction between Newtonian force and absolute force is that Newtonian force is not wave based, while absolute force is wave based. In post-modern physics, absolute force arises from the unique mediation of electrical interactions by gravi-electromagnetic wave.
Like I have informed you in this blog, the gravi-electromagnetic wave is the second non-mechanical wave in the universe. The description of this second non-mechanical wave in the universe is missing in both classical and modern physics.
The absence of this wave in modern physics has created a huge gap in our understanding of the universe. This second non-mechanical wave is what naturally impresses force on electrical bodies in the universe.
Newton described force without placing it in any field theory, even his description of gravitational force failed to give us a field description of gravity. Force, whether inertial force or gravitational force, lacks a field description in Newtonian physics.
This is no longer the case as I have told you above. Absolute force in its two manifestations as inertial and gravitational (absolute) forces just like Newtonian force has been placed within the field theory of gravi-electromagnetism.
The discovery of gravi-electromagnetism shows us that even general relativity is a flawed field theory of gravity and of force in general. General relativity adopts Newtonian force and is thus as erroneous in its description of force just as classical physics.
So, the post-modern description of force as absolute force dethrones both the classical and modern descriptions of force which are both Newtonian. General relativity to be a correct field description of force should have presented us the field theory called gravi-electrodynamics, and which would have been a natural extension of electrodynamics.
Absolute force, whether inertial or gravitational, is a natural field force. Absolute force cannot be unnatural. You will learn more about this important assertion in The Theory of the Universe.
In The Theory of the Universe you will learn about how absolute force has a unique and fundamental distinction from absolute 5-momentum which is important for your understanding of the cosmos.
This fourth distinction is very significant in post-modern physics. I will like to also let you know that I would not have known that absolute force only applies to electrical bodies without the (theoretical) investigation of gravi-electromagnetic wave.
The nature of the interaction of gravi-electromagnetic wave in the atomic world was what exposed to me the exclusive nature of absolute force. We now have to understand these things. The era of ignorance is over.
Now, I know that this article is important to all physicists, but I also know that it is particularly important to particle physicists and for this reason I have decided to conclude this article with a letter presented to every particle physicist in the world.
A Letter to Every Particle Physicist
Dear particle physicist,
I want to first of all appreciate you guys for your staunch and noble research into the nature of the atomic world. Your findings for the past 30 years or there about have done so much to expose some of the inner workings of the atomic world for which I and the world are indeed grateful.
Also, I am aware that your enterprise is in crisis and that some scientists are already beginning to speculate about the end of particle physics. But I want to let you know that they are wrong. The crisis in particle physics is over, and surprisingly particle physics is about to have a fresh start.
Absolute force which I have talked about in this article is rightly your force. Before now you have based your study and investigation of electrical bodies or particles on Newtonian force.
I want to inform you that this should no longer be the case. Basing particle physics on Newtonian force which is not the true force of the atomic world precipitated the crisis in particle physics in the first place, but now your truth has come!
So, whenever I talk about absolute force, I am talking about the force of particle physics. You see, those particles that you smash in particle accelerators to produce exotic particles all carry absolute force and not Newtonian force.
The Higgs Boson carries absolute force and not Newtonian force. There are fundamental distinctions between these two kinds of forces which have been exposed to you in this article, and this new insight about absolute force adds so much to the study and findings of the Higgs Boson.
I know that you live outside the atomic world like I do and so does every other physicist, but I know that more than the rest of us the atomic world of particles is your greatest concern.
I know that you want to unlock the mystery of the atomic world, so now I have come to tell you to discard Newtonian force in this venture. Newtonian force blinds you to the true nature of the atomic world and particle motion.
Dear particle physicist, absolute force as can be deduced from this article is very subtle. You have to become very conscious of its subtlety and embrace the new scientific spirit in order to be able to fully comprehend the ramifications of this force and its associated principle.
You now have to embrace post-modern physics and see how it changes your understanding and practical investigation of particle physics. Also, absolute force has now been incorporated into post-modern quantum mechanics giving you a new way of looking at quantum mechanics.
Post-modern physics has now opened up new experiments hitherto unconceived which if positive would revolutionalize physics and change the purpose of particle physics for the better. No longer will you continue to create unstable, exotic particles without any further practical relevance beyond observational purposes. A new priority has come!
The (strong phase of the) principle of non-inertia which is associated with absolute force is now the new and absolutely fundamental principle of particle physics. You are no longer lost in any way about the true nature of particle physics.
Post-modern physics and this new description of force furnishes you with the true understanding of the origin of mass and the structure of the atom. I could go on and on, but then the simple purpose of this letter is to inform you about your force which is absolute force and which is distinct from Newtonian force that you are already familiar with.
I really hope and even know that absolute force will bring the wind of change you have so craved for particle physics, and as we explore absolute force, there will be no limit to what we can attain in the practical application of particle physics for the advancement of civilization.
Your fellow scientist,
– M. V. Echa
