Foundations of a Theory of Quantum Gravity

Authors: Johan Noldus
Comments: 243 Pages.

This adventure started out as a paper, but soon it grew considerably in size and there was no choice left anymore but to present it as a full blown book written in a style which is intermediate between that of an original research paper and that of a book. More precisely, I opted for a style which is somewhat between the historical and axiomatic approach and this manuscript can therefore be read from different perspectives depending upon the knowledge and skills of the reader. Since quantum gravity is more than a technical problem, the mandatory sections constitute the introduction as well as the technical and axiomatic framework of sections seven till eleven. However, the reader who is also interested in the philosophical aspects as well as a general overview of the problem is advised to study sections two and three as well. The critical reader who is not willing to take any statement for granted should include also sections four till six, since these are somewhat of a transitional nature closing the gap between the conservative initial point of view and the new theory developed later on. Lecturing about this work made me aware that there is also a more direct way to arrive in Rome and for that very reason, this introduction is also split into two parts. The first one takes the conservative point of view as it is done by the very large majority of researchers which necessitates a careful and precise way of phrasing the content; the second approach however is more bold and direct but goes, in my humble opinion, much more economic to the heart of the matter. I believe that the variety of presenting the same material in this introduction will allow the reader to choose which way he prefers to follow.

Universal Topological Quantum Manifolds

Authors: Johan Noldus
Comments: 14 Pages.

In quantum gravity, one looks for alternative structures to spacetime physics than ordinary real manifolds. In this first part, we propose an alternative universal construction containing the latter as an equilibrium state under the action of the universal diffeomorphism group. Our theory contains many other previous proposals in the literature as special cases. However, the crucial point we make is that those have to be appreciated in the universal context developed here.

MCS Physics Article 2: Emp and Time

Authors: Meir Amiram
Comments: 2 pages

In Article 1 I concluded that there is an elementary mass particle EMP, comprising a GG which is no less and no more than a mechanism capable of receiving a particular input from its environment and of returning a particular output to the environment, within a particular time frame[1]. In the present article, I deduce that said time frame is divisible into three non overlapping time intervals: T1 stands for the time interval during which the particle receives the input; T2 stands for the time interval during which the input is processed by the particle; and T3 stands for the time interval during which an output is returned from the particle to the environment.

MCS Physics Article 1 Particle

Authors: Meir Amiram
Comments: 4 pages

This is the first in a series of short articles disclosing MCS Physics. Here I present the logic leading to conclude that (i) there is an elementary mass eM, which is the smallest mass in existence (thus also the smallest bundle of reciprocal mass - energy conversion according to E=MC2), from a plurality of which any greater mass is composed; (ii) a fundamental mass particle (hereinafter abbreviated EMP for Elementary Mass Particle) exists, which caries the elementary mass eM; (iii) what we use to name elementary particles are actually composed constructions comprising multitudes of EMP; and (iv) Each EMP comprises a mechanism capable of receiving a particular input from its environment and of returning a particular output to the environment, within a particular time frame. The mechanism results in both: acquiring mass and generating gravity.

An Experiment to Determine Whether Electromagnetic Waves have Mass

Authors: Mark A. Newstead, Stephen C. Newstead
Comments: 5 pages

In previous papers we have proposed that the mass of an electromagnetic wave is dependent upon its speed. This relationship is such that when the wave is travelling at the speed of light it has no mass, but its mass monotonically increases as the wave slows down (i.e. the wave has mass when it is passing through a medium). In this paper we propose an experiment that would be able to determine whether electromagnetic waves have mass when they are not travelling at the speed of light. Also the experiment would be able to determine whether the wave's frequency affects the wave's mass for a given speed.
