The Current Status of Physics
or: The Naked Truth
the end of the 18th century, it was thought that one knew everything
about the mechanics of the world and physics is at the end. Then came
Einstein. Today we are at an end again, but not because we
know now everything, but because it can not go any further. And that,
although the unanswered questions get multiply faster than the ones
answered. It's as if research is going in the wrong
direction. In 2001, in the german weekly magazine 'Die Zeit': "Aus! die
Physik ist am Ende" (Out! Physics is at the end.) But this end is not
the end of physics, but the end of a dead end in which physics was
seduced by Einstein. How could that happen? The reason:
physics is not at all a science!
science is a delimited field of knowledge,
in which it can evolve alone with their rules.
verifiability has that, what is today called "physics"
not even in the beginning
Every physicist can claim everything possible and impossible to this
None of this can be proved or disproven for lack of substantive rules.
That is why it is also forbidden in physical publications
to say wrong or right.
There is no better proof of unscientificness.
say right and wrong!
"Who said that"? is the only valid ratings today about right
Factual criteria by exact physical rules? None.
Today's "physics" is neither able to define
what it is itself, nor what is a physical proof.
For the ancient Greeks, physical axioms (laws) understood themselves as
truths. And physical theories must contain truths of nature.
However, since with this strict condition no desired progress in the
exploration of nature seemed to be possible anymore, this obligation
was simply reduced to the mere stipulation that theories need only be
free from contradiction. How does it look today?
to the laws of physics" is often argued in physical discussions: has
anyone ever named one of these "laws" in discussions or followed them?
Mostly one use theories instead of laws. But:
are not "laws" of physics!
of nature are also not a formula such as "mass times acceleration is
force". Laws of nature are the rules of nature! This is for example:
"For a natural phenomenon, only a single coordinate system, its
"natural "coordinate system, is responsible". "One can see it also in
any other way!" is absolutely forbidden in physics, if physics will
represent the nature! It must be found out how nature sees itself:
with its natural coordinate system. Of course, a natural phenomenon can
still be considered in different coordinate systems, but ultimately the
natural coordinate system has to be selected, namely that which
determines the phenomenon only.
Only in it are all relevant physical variables to the phenomenon
present in there invariant form.
example is for flying, as Lilienthal already saw, the air, in which an
airplane flies, the natural coordinate system and not the wind tunnel,
since in them the movements of air and plane are
interchanged. "But that's equal!"! For technologie yes, for physics no! Physically is that an exchange of cause and
the greatest mistake, that can ever be made in physics!
truth about the current state of physics is described by Robert B.
Laughlin, Nobel Prize 1998, 2005 in "A Different Univers - Reinventig
Physics from the Button Down" (Retranslating): "As
it turns out, our mastery of the universe is largely a bluff - big flap
and nothing behind it. The claim that all important laws of nature are
known is simply a part of this deception. The border is still near us
and it's still pretty illegal".
Newton emotionally recognized mass inertia as the basis for the
mechanics of the world. This is still a truth that no one doubts
anymore, but that it is still no proof of its correctness. Nature is not a
democracy in which a majority decides, nature is a dictator!
found forther, that masses approaching each other. That's another
truth. The physics community concluded that there had to be an
attraction force, but Newton himself already regarded a force at
nonsense. But since otherwise no contradiction took place and falling
processes with an attraction force could be mathematically
calculated exactly, the existence of an attraction was considered true.
concrete proof of their existence does not exist until today, although
one has been looking for it for a long time. Slowly it should be
realized that there is no gravitational force, especially since it does
not fit into the general image of forces of nature. So the coming
together of masses must have a cause other than a force.
Einstein explained the emergence of our weight by accelerating upward.
Each accelerometer, working with a sensor mass, measures this
acceleration upwards and measuring instruments do never lie. That's a
truth. But why is there still a need for an attraction force? We would
twice as hard with it. Nobody cares, the majority believe in an
attraction and an accelerometer would measures crap in the vertical.
On what grounds can an accelerometer, designed for Newtonian
accelerations, be denied the ability to measure in the vertical?
realized that a released body does not defend itself against its
acceleration of gravity with its inertia. This body can therefore view
itself as being free in space. After Newton, of course, it goes to
earth like the earth also goes a bit towards it. These are still
truths. But a Newtonian force can not accelerate a falling body,
because it is free of forces. That measures an accelerometer in / on it
correctly. So the gravitational force can not be a Newtonian force. What
is made? One invents a non-Newtonian force. By what law of physics?
There is no!
What did Einstein do? He simply did not care about a
force and constructed mathematically a "curvature" of space,
that a body does not have to accelerate gravitationally any more and
adhere only to Newton's law of inertia. A free body moves then with
constant speed in a straight line. But since that does not look like
that, the space around the body would for us curve invisibly, in time
and space. "The
Emperor's New Clothes" have risen again in an area called science.
There is still no real proof of any curvature of space or time. That
Einstein's theory would be consistent is also not given, everything
contradictory is suppressed. Einstein's theories are light-years away
These still experienceable examples from the macrocosm on still
visible and tangible are still unclear. Nevertheless, today's physics
community is not concerned with it anymore, it has simply given up
because of lack of prospects for success and seeks their salvation in
the microcosm. It's being attempted, out of the surprising number of
particles, from which for example the atoms are constructed,
find a mathematical formula which can then describe everything, even
the existing inconsistencies of macrophysics.
What forgotten is
is, that descriptions are far away from explanations, explanations of
the functions of the natural processes. Mathematics would
have to know the funktionel paths inside the natural phenomena, to stay
on these paths.
Natural laws mean for the mathematics very substantial restrictions
on interpretations out of their formulations. Nature does not even
think of following all mathematically possible consequences of
formulas. For example, the relativistic factor in nature is exclusively
tied to time, because it arise out of the time. Therefore
not allowed, to "move" it to other physical variables. According to the
law of nature, that there can be only one cause for one effect, the
relativistic factor, arised out of the time, is bound only on the time,
so that it is impossible, that there can be a mass increase or length
contraction, and that certainly not even additionally. Both are purely
mathematical fictions resulting from the mathematical multiplication
rules of the formula for the relativistic impulse, which although
leading to nominally correct results, are not at all followed by nature.
Hafele-Kaeting experiment unambiguously refutes relativity theories.
What happens? It is publicly lied to in the full consciousness of lying
to even their confirmation, against exact and irrefutable data, which
can not be reconstructed in the least with the formulas of the special
theory of relativity! And that, even though that's the only task of the
special theory of relativity: it does not pass its key test!
no one dares to oppose against better knowledge, all scientists in
occupational dependency relationships would lose their jobs or be
placed cold as for example Halton Arp, who wanted to investigate
galaxies that contained the danger that existing theories would have to
be called into question. But exactly that is by Karl Popper, an
Austrian physics philosoph: "Physics is revolutionary: new replaces the
old!". That is the best paradigm for physics, the only successful method of research.
microphysics, mathematics is successful, but only in the sense, that it
can still find unknown particles, if they have measurable interactions
with other particels as at the time the Neptune was found in addition
to the other planets.
However, in order to come to theories about
everything from the number and properties of the particles, that is,
from bottom to top or from inside to outside, fantasies are invented
with more than three dimensions in two-digit numbers and a lot of
additionelly universes. Werner Heissenberg saw much helpful in the
wisdom of Goethe, who would recommend for today: "To understand the
smallest part it needs the overview of the whole." After that also
The laws of nature are
above those of mathematics!
so-called "theoretical physics" is still animated by the belief that
nature can be researched by mathematical means on the model of the
mathematical discovery of Neptune. However, finding Neptune is no
legitimation for discovering new things in nature. The discovery of
Neptune is merely the multiplication of known things, namely planets.
math exploded in the delusion, only itself could represent nature
properly. And this with paradigms, that do not know questions about the
"why", but only describe the "how". "Why is something so?" are the
pivotal questions of physics. To find such anwers is the only but
extremely demanding and hitherto unsuccessful task of physics. The
means to success is criminalistics and not mathematics: who or what is
the culprit, the cause of a natural phenomenon?
today's physics, a mathematical bubble has formed, in which theories
are constantly being invented, even in "towers" built on others that
are not natural, but only mathematically based.
Every natural phenomenon has its own theory,
which always must reach to the ground of nature.
All natural phenomena are independent of each other!
Nevertheless, the term "natural" is used as a quality attribute for
mathematical formulas, although they can not have any idea of nature at
all. If theories fit well in nature, but not toh the required
wishes for there inventions, a technical naturalness is invented. That
"natural" must be something, that can be localized and measured is
forgotten: what does the "high mathematical physics" care about nature?
requirements for theories were not only reduced from true axioms to
only free of physical contradictions, but even to free of only
mathematical contradictions. But even the free of physically
contradictions was already the capitulation to finding truth in nature.
sense or nonsense or even correctness of formulas is argued with
"simplicity" and "beauty" as criteria. To expand the search field,
"symmetries" are used, which nature should obey. They should then make
the formulas even more beautiful. Beauty as a criterion for correctness
in physics? The quality of mathematical research has not gotten any
better than finding an additional to another known planet. However,
true theories are really beautifull, but thankfully not mathematical!
But even poking around with the beauty attribute in the mist of yet
unknown nature does not even have the success rate of the lottery
the term "theory" for mathematical formulations to compute the only
external symptoms of natural phenomena meant that Theoretical Physics
became nothing more than a theoretical one, not guidet by any true
knowledge of nature. In
physics, the term "theory" is to be defined for the verbal explanation
of natural phenomena by means of cause-and-effect principles. The
results of the now over one hundred years of "Theoretical Physics" with
their oversized dimensions and multiverses are nothing more but wild
One hundred years lost in mathematical mania without any progress with
finding truths of nature, their true inner connections.
A physicist does not seek
formulas but cause-and-effect relationships.
Who does not seek, is not a physicist.
A study of mathematics is for that not required.
The only truth, that Einstein found, is:
Our weight arised by an
acceleration from bottom to top.
It is simply ignored.
to get out of the dead end of physical research? For example, by
researching time dilation. Time dilation is simply used, but never
asked: what is it anyway? Its existence is true, but only just as
gravitation is true and one can calculate with both. But calculating is
not physics, only technologie. Physically,
both are completely unexplained. But mathematics does not care, it can
do without causal knowledge only with the symptoms of natural
phenomena. The unknown nature of time dilation led then promptly to
false applications of the relativistic factor. By
only mathematical laws arise from it spirit worlds with alleged mass
multiplications and length contractions, both never has been detected
by measurements. They are simply believed without verification, as well
as the alleged existence of the undetectable attraction force.
"Mathematical physicists" have no armor to evaluate
theories, namely by "physical rules". They do not even know them,
especially because they are not searched. Otherwise they would
massively impair the beloved freedom of mathematical search in nature.
mathematical results can in nature, so in physics, prove nothing at
all. The fact, that mathematical consistency has no significance in
physics is proved by the four modern, very different gravitation
theories, which all are mathematically correct, but physically all
wrong. None of them can say what gravity is. But that is the main
question in physics! For time dilation and gravitation must be find
principles. And they are not in the supernatural, but in normal
understandable and experimentally verifiable processes. The solutions
for both are presented in www.kosmosphysik.de, where the true principle
of gravitation with overview reveals how the acceleration from bottom
to top on the Earth and other celestial bodies arises.
of physical theories with their compellingly verbal cause-and-effect
principles prove themselves exclusively according to the rules of
nature. Their criteria are: they must be able to answer more questions
than have led to their findings and must be able to verbally answer all
"why" questions in their field, always directly starting from their
basis principles. Physical
theories are either completely right or completely wrong from
their start. There is nothing in between. Nature is binary in this
respect: improvable or improvement needed theories are without
exception fundamentally wrong.
Formulas for natural phenomena only become short, beautiful and correct,
if they arise from the knowledge of the physical course by cause to effect,
controlled by a natural principle.
Every natural phenomenon is controlled by only one basic principle,
from which all its individual symptoms result in direct consequence.
example of wrong theories is the extremely complex aerodynamics theory
of flying. It needs several individual theories to explain all her
apparitions. Only with the knowledge of the true cause of the lift
force arise the "beautiful" theory, based on the basic principle of
kinetics, which explains in a direct and stringent consequence
unsolicited all individual symptoms, see in www.flugtheorie.de. Only
that is the absolute physical proof of a correct theory.
Finally, the language of physics.
theories must contain a true basic principle of nature, for example
Newton's theory of force with "force results from changing the
momentum". This is a true physical law based on the existence of
inertia. How could mathematics express that? It can not, it can only
process quantitative correlations. Why they exist, is outside its
essence. Without knowing the basic principles of gravitation and time
dilation, neither correct theories about the mechanics of the world nor
nature-true to life formulas can be found.
Physical theories are purely verbal!
fact, that the verbal of a language is imperfect and does not match the
exactness of mathematics does not allow the use mathematics instead of
language, especially since a specialist language requires only exact
definitions for required terms which makes the verbal as stringent as
mathematics. With the inadequacies of language for desired exactnesses
is to live and it works too, because it must! One will probably still
be able to understand.
The language of physics is the language!
Mössbauer (Nobel Prize 1961) writes in the foreword to the German
edition of Richard Feynman's book (Nobel Prize 1965) "On the nature of
as a theorist, to my great astonishment, forbade me to use mathematical
formulations in these discussions by the ground, that mathematics could
be made up for once, if the solutions were clear." So first the
physics with its laws, then the mathematics, which must follow these
physical laws. Physics is master, math the slave!
And in the aforementioned book Richard Feynman writes:
ultimately, physics does not require mathematics, that finally the
naturs "machinery" will come to light, and that the laws will show
oneself to be as simple as the rules of the ostensibly seemingly
complex chess game.“
A revision of physics is long overdue!
What is the nature of physics?
Thinking, not calculating!
