## General Systems and the Unified Field Theory, part 1

**Authors:** John A. Gowan

The conceptual basis of the Unified Field Theory, as presented in these pages, can be briefly sketched
as follows:
"Noether's Theorem" states that in a multicomponent field such as the electromagnetic
field (or the metric field of spacetime), where one finds a symmetry one finds an
associated conservation law, and vice versa. In matter, light's symmetries are conserved
by charge and spin; in spacetime, by inertial and gravitational forces. All forms of energy,
including the conservation/entropy domain of spacetime, originate as light. During the
"Big Bang", the asymmetric interaction of primordial, high energy light with the metric
structure of spacetime produces matter; matter carries charges which are the symmetry
(and entropy) debts of the light which created it. Charges produce forces which act to
return the material system to its original symmetric state (light), paying matter's
symmetry/entropy debts. Repayment is exampled by matter-antimatter annihilation
reactions, particle and proton decay, the nucleosynthetic pathway of stars, and Hawking's
"quantum radiance" of black holes. Identifying the broken symmetries of light associated
with each of the 4 forces (and charges) of physics is the first step toward a conceptual
unification of those forces. (Part 1)
