Who is Right?

Authors: Lubomir Vlcek
Comments: 3 Pages. Status: With editors in Physical Review Letters

Through the work of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Louis de Broglie, Arthur Compton, Niels Bohr, and many others, current scientific theory holds that all particles also have a wave nature (and vice versa).[1] This phenomenon has been verified not only for elementary particles, but also for compound particles like atoms and even molecules. For macroscopic particles, because of their extremely short wavelengths, wave properties usually cannot be detected.[2] Wave–particle duality is an ongoing conundrum in modern physics. Most physicists accept wave-particle duality as the best explanation for a broad range of observed phenomena; however, it is not without controversy.

In Search of Reality

Authors: Robert T Longo
Comments: 20 Pages.

In this paper, I will discuss the underlying philosophy of physics. A new definition of observer is presented, then the meaning of two words, i.e., existence and reality, will be examined. With the changes made for these three items, a new philosophy emerges that allows an examination of the concepts of cause and effect, time, space, and the role of mathematics in physics. The new philosophy suggests a structure of the universe that indicates both an understanding of the double-slit experiment and a new approach to the quantization and root cause of gravitation.

Gravity the Inertia of the World

Authors: Fursa E.Ja.
Comments: 22 Pages.

Mass as a characteristic of such qualities of the body as the gravity and inertia is not an intrinsic property of the body itself. Mass as a physical quantity determines and serves as measure of such properties as a inertial force (and gravity), arising in the bodies in response to the acceleration of their movements, essentially it is a reaction of bogies on the external influence, characterizing the degree of the physical connectedness of the our World, at different levels of its organization. Mass is the induced property which arises in response to acceleration of the body and retained in the body owing to acceleration and is changed with acceleration. The nature of this phenomenon, i.e. the gravitational and inertial masses, is one and indivisible is concluded to in the general (universal) connectedness of our world as a single global process of Creation and the reason is the acceleration of bodies in a system of bodies associated with the accelerated motion (divergence) of galaxies. The whole world has inertia with respect to the motion of time. World time is absolute inertial frame throughout our universe. Life and evolution are required to the acceleration in the inertial frame of reference (IFR) associated with world time. The phenomenon of "life" is a continuous struggle for time. In order to live, we should uninterruptedly to borrow time in loan from the Universe. We are changing energy in exchange for a time, and we are alive until we are spending the energy.
