The singularity-based mathematical model of black holes has long proved its great worth, by providing a solid basis for theoretical constructions of these cosmological behemoths. However, this model is based on certain basic physical assumptions which might not adequately account for the remarkable and …

## One Thing Does Lead to Another

One Physics misconception that I still see bandied about, frequently, is that quantum physics is somehow fundamentally different than the classical physics we observe at larger scales. Inevitably, Schrodinger’s cat is mentioned in there somehow, as a wearisome “example” of just how strange quantum …

In my post from Jan 30, 2019 (“Dark Energy is Getting Stronger”), I referenced new data out of the University of Florence and Durham University in England, via NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton spacecraft, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, …

Probably my favorite part of The Enlightening was one of the last things that came to me through the course of my endeavors, which is the matter/ anti-matter discrepancy in our universe. The solution is so perfect (though admittedly rather mind-blowing) that I have …

I love this experimental discovery and its implications for electrodynamics. All fundamental particles are cousins of the quantum units of electromagnetic energy (photons), but none more so than the ubiquitous electron. Very cool work by Professor Anne Sickles of my alma mater, The University …

Here’s a link to a book review from The Enlightening’s site.

Continue reading## Dark Energy is Getting Stronger

Researchers at the University of Florence have deduced that dark energy appears to be getting stronger over time. The hyper-dimensional universe, as I am proposing, follows that model—a period of rapid deceleration and expanding dispersion of mass/energy in the earliest stages of the …

One of the great mysteries of Special Relativity is the Second Postulate, which is the idea that the speed of light c is a constant, independent of the relative motion of the source. This constancy is why Albert Einstein preferred to think of his …

Albert Einstein H.A. Lorentz In my book The Enlightening, I make the following observation: Both Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz conceived of Lorentz’ Relativistic Velocity Transformation equations as describing the entire extent of the universe. This is clearly supported by Einstein’s relativity theories, including …

A Caltech researcher has recently pointed out that Schrodinger’s Equation, which describes the wavelike nature of particles, and is therefore the foundational equation of quantum mechanics, is also very useful in describing the long-term evolution of large-scale astronomical structure of space-time. Today, let’s conduct …
