The problem is that quantum mechanics was developed as a mathematical tool. Physicists understood how to use it as a tool for making predictions, but without an agreement or understanding about what it was telling us about the physical world. And that's very clear when you look at any of the foundational discussions. This is what Einstein was upset about; this is what Schrodinger was upset about. Quantum mechanics was merely a calculational technique that was not well understood as a physical theory. Bohr and Heisenberg tried to argue that asking for a clear physical theory was something you shouldn't do anymore. That it was something outmoded. And they were wrong, Bohr and Heisenberg were wrong about that. But the effect of it was to shut down perfectly legitimate physics questions within the physics community for about half a century. And now we're coming out of that, fortunately."
In order to make my physics work more digestible I am intending to make a series of small papers each of which illustrates a particular point I am attempting to make within a larger comprehensive theory. The later work will be in [updated] book form and will contain more than the individual papers can. The first of these papers is: Two-Component Gravitation - Solution to Galaxy Rotation Curves http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Physics_Frontier/files/Two-Component%20Gravitation-v1.pdf http://tinyurl.com/7k48vwu I call this a Pre Pre-Print because getting a Pre-Print into arXiv.org is little different than getting it published in a journal. The problem is a chicken and egg issue. In order to get into arXiv you must have a sponsor current in the field of study. The journal discourages contacting people in the field for sponsorship unless you have a pre-existing relationship with the sponsor. Having an existing academic position in the field of study is the other means of entry. Having neither sponsor nor academic position I am not an "incumbent" so I have no means of entry. They encourage those unable to gain entry to arXiv to seek the normal journal route [glacial if ever] or publish on the web on your own. For now I am putting it out on the web and still giving away free copies of the 2nd edition of my book until they run out [contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a copy]. Upon reading the paper you will see that the paper is not self-contained but requires other parts of a new physics infrastructure. That is another chicken and egg issue - how do you publish one result based in part upon other results yet to be published? I was encouraged in this forum to put out my work in arXiv - this is a small step in that direction. Dennis May
Serious Blow to Dark Matter Theories? New Study Finds Mysterious Lack of Dark Matter in Sun's Neighborhood http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/04/120418111923.htm Dark Matter continues to fail as a fix for the General Theory of Relativity. Interesting times ahead in physics. Dennis
