Subtitle: A Critique of Einstein’s Journey to the Unified Field Theory.
[Science is] an imaginative adventure of the mind seeking truth in a world of mystery.
Sir Cyril Herman Hinshelwood (1897-1967)
On February 11, 2016, scientists working with the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced the discovery of gravitational waves. This news was greeted with great enthusiasm by scientists around the world. I too was excited by this discovery.
Gravitational waves are ripples in space and time predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity. It is said that the theory of general relativity gave us a field description of gravity, and it predicted that gravity travels as an effect within the fabric of space and time and at the speed of light.
While I appreciate the discovery of gravitational waves, I do so only for its practical relevance, and not because it brings us any close to the truth. No matter what this discovery means, we still must ask ourselves: are gravitational waves real?
Yes, the theory may have predicted it, but what if the theory is wrong? Against seeming evidence, the theory can be wrong, we may have been misled, considering that the theory informs the experimenter where to look for proof of its premises and predictions.
Also, and more importantly, we have to question this discovery considering that general relativity has not in any way assisted us in discovering the unified field. Would the emergence or discovery of the unified field further validate the existence of gravitational waves?
The unified field is now available and it does not validate the existence of gravitational waves. This article will reveal to you how the theory of everything requires you to view the universe and accelerated frames.
This new realisation is not a blind one, rather it emerges from a critical re-examination of the conceptual foundation of general relativity. General relativity emerged from Einstein’s attempt to extend the principles of relativity to accelerated frames.
Therefore, the existence of gravitational waves is as a result of the relativity of accelerated frames. This discovery tends to prove or convince us that the accelerated motions of heavenly bodies are governed by gravitational waves. This is not the truth.
A Spacecraft Moving in Curved Space and Time
So, what is the truth? The truth is that the accelerated motions of heavenly bodies are governed by gravi-electromagnetic waves and not by gravitational waves. The gravi-electromagnetic wave, because of its two components, light and gravity, transcends the speed of light.
Let’s go further.
General relativity which predicted the existence of gravitational waves is founded on the principle of strong equivalence, while the unified field theory which predicts the existence of gravi-electromagnetic waves is founded, among others, on the principle of universal equivalence.
So, let’s ask ourselves, which of these two theories is more potent and illuminating? For general relativity to be true, it should have predicted the existence of gravi-electromagnetic waves travelling beyond the speed of light, and not gravitational waves travelling at the speed of light.
I really hope that you can see how your perspective of the discovery of gravitational waves changes. Now, this is where it gets more interesting! Einstein for the last 30 years of his life searched fruitlessly for the unified field theory.
But post-modern physics is now making us realize that he needed the unified field theory even when he laid down the principles of general relativity. The gravi-electromagnetic wave which governs accelerated frames is the unified field Einstein sought.
To prove this to us, the unified field has taken us further beyond general relativity. It now informs us about the universal equivalence principle, which states that the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle are equal.
This great principle is the principle of the unified field theory Einstein sought. The unified field theory Einstein sought should bring together light and gravity within one framework. This is great, as the unified field theory now informs us that light and gravity are unified as components of gravi-electromagnetic wave.
Also, general relativity takes gravitational waves as merely geometrical ripples. Remember that in general relativity, gravity is due to the curvature of space and time by matter and energy.
But in the unified field theory, the gravi-electromagnetic wave which opposes the existence of gravitational wave is another non-mechanical wave in the universe just like light. So, gravi-electromagnetic waves are not ripples in space and time just like gravitational waves, rather they are tangible and purely independent cosmic energy just like light.
Listen, Einstein’s relativity informs us that there are two waves in the universe, which are electromagnetic waves and gravitational waves, and so it goes about seeking for the unified field.
While post-modern relativity informs us that there are two non-mechanical waves in the universe, which are the electromagnetic wave and the gravi-electromagnetic wave, and the gravi-electromagnetic wave is the unified field. Understand this distinction.
Einstein really could not have discovered the unified field because he had unknowingly exhausted his path to it. His general theory of relativity required the unified field and not some other new theory. The unified field which is the gravi-electromagnetic wave is the wave that governs accelerated frames.
Old Albert Einstein
Einstein needed just two theories and not three to complete his journey to the unified field theory, to complete his quest to know the mind of God. We must not remain in Einstein’s track. A new way has come.
Holding on to the discovery of gravitational waves as true is to continue in Einstein’s error. The unified field, which is the gravi-electromagnetic field, is only necessary when we want to describe the relativity of accelerated frames, and is not needed when we want to describe the relativity of uniform frames.
Light is the non-mechanical wave we need when we want to describe the relativity of uniform frames. This new way now informs us of what Einstein’s track couldn’t, which is that there are two non-mechanical waves in the universe and not one.
We must leave modern physics quickly and ascend into post-modern physics. The quite tragic end of Einstein’s honest and noble search for the unified field theory must not rub on us. We can complete this mission.
Gravi-electromagnetic energy is the mysterious dark energy. Dark energy is the energy of the second non-mechanical wave in the universe. Einstein’s general relativity should have given us another iconic energy equation for accelerated frames just like the E= mc2 for uniform frames.
One may ask, how can we go about to test for gravi-electromagnetic waves, considering the fact that so far, we have not been able to practically investigate dark energy which is gravi-electromagnetic energy?
Post-modern physics now informs us of the true operations of gravi-electromagnetic waves and how to go about investigating them. This is a different case from the former scenario when we had no theory to guide us in the proper investigation of dark energy.
The existence of gravi-electromagnetic waves has however given birth to the new field of gravi-optics. In gravi-optics, the gravi-electromagnetic wave is investigated at the border of the harmony between mind and matter.
Since we now know that the gravi-electromagnetic wave is just another non-mechanical wave in the universe, just like light, we are now in post-modern physics studying how it opens the door to new experiences of reality, just like our observations of reality due to light have thus far taken us.
In post-modern physics, man has ascended to a new and metaphysical experience of the universe. In the unified field theory, space and time are no longer as we have known them to be. True understanding and deeper perception have come.
Newton set the foundation for Optics about 300 years ago, and optics is heavily dependent on the physical observation of variations in light. And now Gravi-optics sets the foundation for the metaphysical observation of variations in the gravi-electromagnetic wave.
Listen, we are moving from our observation of the universe through the medium of light to the observation of the universe through the medium of gravi-electromagnetic wave. This is huge. This is the utter transformation of our consciousness.
The spectrum of reality will greatly increase, and mankind shall be drowned in an atmosphere of immense possibilities. It will be the scientific age of miracles, and man will be spiritual, of course, as the reality of absolute space and time in this age will set us apart from other ages of mankind. The spirit of man will thrive again.
If you have read this article to this point, I want you to liberate yourself completely and embrace the endless possibilities that have come to man. For there is no boundary to the feats man shall accomplish in this scientific age.
Now, what new conceptual framework reveals to us the existence of gravi-electromagnetic wave? This new conceptual framework is gravi-electrodynamics. It is the contrary of general relativity and the natural extension of (the) electrodynamics (of special relativity).
Gravi-electrodynamics, besides the principle of universal equivalence, goes further to reveal to us the principle of non-inertia, which is the governing principle for accelerated frames just as the principle of inertia is the governing principle for uniform frames.
So, in post-modern physics, when we want to describe accelerated frames we deploy gravi-electrodynamics and not general relativity. Gravi-electrodynamics is a much simpler conceptual framework than general relativity.
It is much simpler because it is entirely founded on Euclidean geometry, in fact, both electrodynamics and gravi-electrodynamics are founded on Euclidean geometry. In post-modern physics, there is no transition from one geometrical principle to another as you find in Einsteinian relativity.
This simplicity in post-modern relativity is made possible by the existence of two non-mechanical waves in the universe. It is my firm conviction that if these two non-mechanical waves in the universe do not exist, then general relativity would represent our best version of reality, but this isn’t the case.
General relativity lost its simplicity when it proceeded to describe accelerated frames without the fundamental governing non-mechanical wave. The governing wave is wrongly replaced by ripples in curved space and time, which are gravitational waves.
If Einstein had the knowledge of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe, the result would have been that special relativity and general relativity would be alike in every way. The universe does not treat uniform and accelerated frames so differently as physical observation would want to make us think.
The universe places uniform and accelerated frames on the same geometrical principle which is Euclidean geometry, but assigns two different kinds of non-mechanical waves to accompany both forms of motion. This post-modern insight exposes to us the error in modern physics.
This is the road to the unified field theory which Einstein and other honest seekers missed. We must now learn from their mistakes and set science on the right track. Gravitational waves do not exist.
We have been looking at accelerated frames and the universe wrongly by holding as truth the tenets and predictions of general relativity. In fact, the entire axioms or premises upon which Einstein founded the principles of relativity for both uniform and accelerated frames have been revisited by post-modern physics.
This accomplishment in post-modern physics has removed all the conceptual roadblocks to the unified field theory. Relativity, more than any other conceptual framework, is important in our pursuit of the unified field theory.
In post-modern physics, we are no longer scratching the surface of reality. General relativity is an inverted version of reality, and in one of my future articles, I will enlighten you about the fundamental discrepancies between general relativity and gravi-electrodynamics.
In the nearest future, general relativity (and not even quantum mechanics) would have to be completely discarded for the truth. The truth now teaches us that there are no gravitational waves, what truly exists are gravi-electromagnetic waves, and which are non-mechanical forms of energy just as electromagnetic waves.
Also, the gravi-electromagnetic wave is the missing component in quantum mechanics. Both quantum mechanics and general relativity which are respectively concerned with the accelerated motions of large bodies and small bodies do so without the recognition of gravi-electromagnetic waves.
This is at the heart of the unification problem. This is why gravi-electrodynamics is the most far-reaching of the three conceptual frameworks, and it replaces both general relativity and quantum mechanics. Gravi-electrodynamics describes perfectly the accelerated motions of both small and large bodies.
Welcome to illumination! And to further increase your understanding of the cosmos and complete the implications of this article, I want you to read my article about black holes.
Post-modern physics now gives you a new understanding of black holes, which is particularly important since the detection of gravitational waves comes from the collision of two black holes light-years away. We currently have a wrong practical understanding of black holes, and I want you to be free of this error.
General relativity and even the discovery of gravitational waves do not produce the tremendous results which gravi-electrodynamics has produced. Again, gravitational waves do not exist, and this is because what truly exist are gravi-electromagnetic waves, the waves of the unified field theory.
Until next time.
Remain a post-modern scientist.
