Particle accelerators create secondary relativistic particles and secondary photons, and we measure their velocities via the Relativistic Addition of Velocities and the Second Postulate of Special Relativity. All seems to be very cut-and-dried in this respect. But is it? In my book, The Enlightening, I maintain that …

## The Greatest and Grandest Illusion (Part 2)—The Physical Structure of Electromagnetic Energy

As I stated in my previous post (Part I), physicists feel that they do not require any additional “explanation” for the observed velocities of secondary relativistic particles, and secondary electromagnetic energy, beyond the Relativistic Addition of Velocities and/or the Second Postulate of Special Relativity …

In my previous post (Space-time), I described how space-time must interact with mass/energy in the form of a wave. My brief post was meant to underscore the following: If the original hypothesis was that space-time interacts with mass/energy in the form of a wave, one couldn’t …

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 …
