The conceptual basis of the Unified Field Theory as presented in these pages is summarized below: "Noether's Theorem" states that in a multicomponent field such as the electromagnetic field (or the metric field of spacetime), symmetries are associated with conservation laws and vice versa. In matter, light's (broken) symmetries are conserved by charge and spin; in spacetime, light's symmetries are protected by inertial forces, and conserved (when broken) by gravitational forces. All forms of energy originate as light; matter carries charges which are the symmetry/entropy debts of the light which created it. The charges of matter are the symmetry debts of light. Charges produce forces which act to return the material system to its original symmetric state, paying matter's symmetry/entropy debts. Payment is exampled by annihilation reactions (electromagnetic force); radioactivity (fission), fusion, particle and proton decay (weak and strong nuclear forces); the nucleosynthetic pathway of stars, and Hawking's "quantum radiance" of black holes (gravitational force). Identifying the broken symmetries of light associated with each of the 4 charges and forces of physics is the first step toward a conceptual unification. The conservation of energy, symmetry, entropy, and causality, plus the requirement of primordial symmetry-breaking followed by the maintenance of charge invariance (including the phenomena of "local gauge symmetry"), are all key conceptual elements in the formulation of a Unified Field Theory.
