The Dynamic Nature of the Fabric of Space

: a physical model / theory & view of the universe





Chapter 1
Gedankenexperiment

The affect that black holes are supposed to have upon the paths of photons, who venture too near to them, is what triggered my inescapable quest for a physical (mechanical) theory of the nature & structure of the universe. If a photon could be drawn into a black hole by gravity, away from the path it would of otherwise have taken, then the simplest physical explanation could only be that such waves seemed to be drawn to the space around a black hole as if it were becoming an increasingly more effective conductor to the photons. The only physical means of conduction that I could think of was if a black hole was enveloped by a fabric of space (F.O.S.) of an ever increasingly greater rigidity/ density  nature. Such that the lower portion of the wave was in a region of space more conductive to it, than the side of the wave furthest away from the black hole. The gravitational field around this incredibly massive body appeared to the photon as an ever increasingly more effective conductor, or density gradient, of the fabric of space.

However, the waveform that came to mind that most easily fit the necessary requirements for conduction within this domain was that of longitudinal wave. As a longitudinal wave will travel the path of greatest increasing rigidity/density. That is so long as there is not a sudden pronounced increase, or decrease, in the rigidity & density of the medium. Otherwise reflection will occur as the wave energy is drawn back into the more easily affected conductor[?]. Unfortunately photons are supposed to consist of transverse waves. Why? Because only transverse waves are supposed to be polarizeable. And yet transverse waves are shown to be so much slower than longitudinal waves when their within the same medium.

     The problem is that most people associate longitudinal waves with sound waves, and I personally know of no one whose considered trying to polarize phonons. Consider how fast they seem to decay. Nor am I suggesting that we consider a sound wave as a model for a photon, but they would appear to share some characteristics. The phonon and a photon would seem to have a similar principle of transmission, but a different overall shape. What about a basically flat wave front of this aether undergoing compression and rarefaction? Circular in nature, but not forming a perfect circle. Perfect geometric forms are more of an ideal than a common occurrence in nature. If a longitudinal wave is elliptic then it to can be polarized. The more elliptical vs. circular the more readily they could be polarized.
     Photonic shape can be imagined by splitting an ellipsoid with a plane. With an elliptical shape, from a front or back view, they then can have literally both height and width. Thus they can be polarized, and like all waves still possess all the other characteristics (reflection, refraction & interference patterns) that experiment has shown them to have. One must remember here that wavelength would be more accurately described as wave spacing, and not a physical characteristic denoting frontal width or height. Polarizeable longitudinal waves? There should be some kind of a link between the equation for longitudinal waves to photons.

     Given that the decay products of an electron - positron pair are two gamma rays) consider then that the origin) of an electron is a gamma ray, and as such its behaviour should be related to the same components that affect the conduction of a photon. If a photon is a longitudinal wave then one should be able to link the equation for longitudinal waves in matter to gamma-rays or at least to one of their alter egos. Like an electron.
     If one takes the Electrical Force Constant and divides it by the Magnetic Force Constant we end up with ...

The purpose of this series of pages introducing "The Dynamic Nature of the Fabric of Space" is not only to find a publisher to turn this draft [first posted on the internet on December 1, 2008] into a book, but it is also to earn enough money to pay off my student loans, and hopefully raise enough money to initiate the Farm Robot Project. With any luck, and marketing, I will also be able to fund my robotic under water camera platform and observation posts. These would be used to both capture images of marine life, and also provide biologists with another tool to study life in the ocean. Along with this research, hopefully there will be a few patent spin-offs to generate additional income to keep the research and projects going. Presently I'm unable to effectively finance my own projects due to my student debt to which I'm enslaved to my student loan payments.

Along with finding a publisher I'd like to put out the word to mathematicians, physicists, or at least someone better at calculus & differential equations than me, that I have some ideas on the mathematics for the Fabric of Space atomic model. And that ideally I'd like to collaborate on some of the mathematics while completing the book. This would be a great opportunity for someone to start off their career, as the implications for both chemistry and physics are enormous.
