The Greatest Source of Energy — A New Theory of Time

This work provides an easy-to-follow way of possibly combining General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics into a more comprehensive theory. The book examines old scientific concepts from a new perspective and connects many long-separated dots along the scientific landscape. A brief, yet comprehensive work, The Greatest Source of Energy is a thought-provoking new look at all that surrounds us.

Select problems that the book addresses are as follows:

Theory of Everything (the combination of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, also known as quantum gravity)

Problem of time

Predominance of matter over anti-matter

Origin of mass

Nature of dark matter

Nature of dark energy

Gravity’s Hidden Inverse Relationship With Electromagnetism: A Possible Path to Solving the Hierarchy Problem

In this paper, the author describes the potential reason why gravity is far weaker than electromagnetism. It is suggested that gravity and electromagnetism have an inverse relationship — as if the two forces sit on opposite sides of a seesaw. Gravity is thus naturally weak (“low to the ground”) while electromagnetism is strong (“high off the ground”).

On Feynman’s Speculations About the Origin of the Fine-Structure Constant

Here, the author discusses the fine-structure constant — the electromagnetic coupling constant (also known as alpha), which represents electromagnetism’s strength. Specifically, the paper addresses the speculation of renowned physicist Richard Feynman that alpha might be associated with the base of the natural logarithm (e). It is shown that indeed there is a mathematical relationship between alpha and e.

Higgs Boson Mass Can Be Derived From Masses of Z and W Bosons

This paper describes how half the mass of the Z boson plus half the mass of each of two W bosons (i.e., the W+ and W– bosons) creates a total that is a near-identical match to the mass of the Higgs boson of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This suggests that the LHC Higgs boson might not be fundamental, but instead might be an exotic hybrid particle with specific constituent parts.

ATLAS, CMS Higgs Boson Data May Already Contain Clues for Solving Decay Rate Puzzle

Brief background: The LHC Higgs boson decays via five principal decay channels: photons, Z bosons, and W bosons (the boson decay channels), and tau particles and bottom quarks (the fermion decay channels). The signal strength is the ratio of the observed number of events in a given decay channel over the number expected by way of the Standard Model. A value of 0 would mean no events were observed in that decay channel. A value of 1, the ideal value, would mean that the number of observed events matched the number expected from the Standard Model. If the boson discovered at the LHC is the Standard Model Higgs boson, the signal strength in each decay channel, in the ideal sense, would be 1, indicating that observation matched theory.

Neither ATLAS nor CMS (the two main laboratories at the LHC) has been able to achieve a value of 1 in all channels simultaneously except within uncertainty ranges, some of which are unfortunately large. Some values have been higher than 1, while some have been lower than 1.

Focus of paper: In this paper, the author describes how there appears to be a specific proportional relationship between the combined fermion signal strength and the combined boson signal strength in both ATLAS and CMS. It is shown how, as of the date the paper was produced, the ratio of the combined fermion signal strength to the combined boson signal strength in both laboratories is approximately 0.83 to 1, when, technically, it should be 1 to 1. This fact might be a clue to some hidden physics.

Predicting Spin, Other Characteristics of New Higgs-Like Boson by Using Temporal Energy Theory Concepts

In this paper, an attempt was made to use concepts from The Greatest Source of Energy to predict certain characteristics of the newly found Higgs boson at the LHC. It was proposed that the LHC’s Higgs boson would likely be found to be a non-elementary, spin 2 particle with positive parity — positive parity means that it and its mirror image look the same.

An important point inadvertently omitted in the paper is that the particle can be regarded as spin 0 even through concepts in The Greatest Source of Energy — that is, it can be regarded as spin 2 or spin 0 by way of these concepts.

In the paper, the Higgs boson is considered to develop from two overlapping (spin 1) photons — see the left and middle panels of the figure below.

The spin 2 nature of the resulting Higgs boson is illustrated in the middle panel, where the two spin 1 photons are overlapping.

However, during oscillation of the overlapping waves of the photons, the arrows at times clash, with the two arrows on the left pointing toward one another, and the two arrows on the right doing the same — see the rightmost panel in the figure.

From concepts in the book, when arrows representing the spins of particles point toward one another, the spins cancel and the overall spin (of the composite particle) becomes 0. The clashing of the spins against one another would cause instability within the particle and cause it to decay.

Thus, from the standpoint of concepts from The Greatest Source of Energy, the LHC Higgs boson can be regarded as a spin 0, composite particle with positive parity. With this, two of the three characteristics match current findings. One difference that cannot be avoided, however, is that concepts from the book suggest that the LHC particle must be a composite particle, whereas currently it is believed to be elementary.

A Digital Solution to Cosmic Problems: Modeling Space and Time as Digital Systems May Unlock Many of the Universe’s Secrets

In this essay, the author argues that spacetime has greater detail than is being taken into account and that the current limited view of the four-dimensional field has been hindering us from continuing to produce advances in science of the same power and utility as relativity and quantum theory.
