A proposal to reconstruct physics from simple physically realistic first principles is outlined
using a Beautiful Universe model. Just one type of 'building block' is used: a
spherically-symmetrical charged node spinning with angular momentum in units of Planck's
constant (h). Rotating nodes magnetize and self-assemble as a regular face-centered cubic
attice to form the vacuum, radiation and matter. Three space and one time dimension are
derived from the lattice and node interactions. Mutual repulsion between nodes with their
like poles aligned accounts both for the accelerating expansion of the universe (dark energy)
and the vacuum pressure on matter (dark matter). A spinning node transfers its angular momentum
to adjacent nodes by rotating on an orthogonal axis, thus creating an electromagnetic field with
forward momentum. The spin rate of the node receiving the momentum, its 'density' determines the
variable rate c_{v} at which it receives the radiation. In a vacuum c_{v} is the maximum, c_{0} the
velocity of light. Two or more adjacent nodes locked together through a tensegrity of attractive
(+ -) and repulsive electrostatic forces form as matter. The surrounding nodes twist and orient
their axes to form magnetic, gravitational or electrostatic fields. The inverse-square law and
E=mc_{0}^{2} are derived from the resulting geometry. Motion of matter is a self-convolution of an
energy pattern in the lattice. This links Newtonian force and mass directly to domino-like transfer
of momentum between nodes, in units of h, whereby a collision causes a relativistic contraction
of an object's length. Doppler shifts in the signals used by an outside observer to measure
the moving object causes a further contraction in the estimated length, equivalent to time
dilation. The two effects explain a result of Special relativity in classical terms. Using
the Hamiltonian Analogy and the idea of a node index of refraction n=c_{0}/c_{v} General Relativity
is reduced to the dynamics of energy transport along streamlines made up of nodes of different
rotation. Variable velocity along curved streamlines is acceleration and hence gravity. Quantum
probability is derived from the electric field of a dipole wave in the lattice where Heisenberg's
uncertainty relations emerge naturally from the resulting geometry. Cosmological inflation, but
not a Big-Bang singularity would result from initial conditions of nodes in their closest
proximity to each other. The outline of a discrete calculus needed to describe the model's
interactions is presented. Some experiments are proposed to test various aspects of the model.
