Essay—The Theory of One Revisited

SummaryThis essay delineates seven arguments regarding my Theory of One being—Inside Out, Outside In, The Pythagorean Form, Causality Breakdown, The Aspect Experiment, Simplicity and Beauty, and Unchallenged After Thirteen Years—and argues that I have made my case for the Theory of One.

One—Inside Out.  Consider two hypothetical spheres existing in abstract, metaphysical space—that is, space where the normal rules of physics do not apply.  With the first sphere the center is everywhere and the boundary is nowhere, while with the second sphere the boundary is everywhere and the center is nowhere.  The question is—How are the spheres different?  The thought problem leads to the counterintuitive conclusion that the terms center and boundary are interchangeable in this case—and thus both spheres paradoxically describe the very same continuum.  Relativity theory is based on lightspeed and quantum theory is based on Planck’s constant.  Consider again the two spheres.  With the first sphere Planck’s constant is everywhere and lightspeed is nowhere, while with the second sphere lightspeed is everywhere and Planck’s constant is nowhere.  The question is—How are the spheres different?  The thought problem leads to the counterintuitive conclusion that the terms Planck’s constant and lightspeed are interchangeable in this case—and both spheres paradoxically describe the very same spacetime continuum.

Two—Outside In.  Consider a tabletop representing the universe of all universes.  It is true that our universe occupies no more than a point in the universe of all universes.  As such, particles exist deterministically or with some degree of probability at every point in the universe—including at the boundary.  Thus the Outside In argument coincides with the Inside Out argument.  We could say that the big bang (ie. the creation of the universe) is occurring at every moment going back to its origin sixteen billion years ago when a photon (ie. a particle of light) splits into another photon which then splits into an electron and a positron (ie. particles of matter and antimatter).  By definition, photons travel at lightspeed and thus exist at the boundary of the universe.  From outside the universe, a single photon appears as a spherical film containing the universe—like a translucent pearl encapsulating a grain of sand—which is the elemental conceptual picture of the theory of one.  The elemental conceptual picture of relativity theory is the Pythagorean Form, which is the formula associated with a right-angle triangle.  The elemental conceptual picture of quantum theory is the Schrödinger’s wave equation, which resembles the waves that would occur if a pebble were dropped into an ocean.

Three—The Pythagorean Form.  According to William Barrett, reason was a Greek invention.  While the Egyptians used the Pythagorean Form as an empirical rule-of-thumb in building pyramids, it was Pythagoras (582-500 BC) who first proved it to be a mathematical truth.  In fact the Pythagorean Form was the first realization of reason.  The macrocosmos of relativity theory (ie. the universe of spacetime) is the universal law of spacetime and reveals that spacetime dilates as a function of velocity relative to lightspeed in accordance with the Pythagorean Form—ie. h^2 + (v/c)^2 = 1^2,  h = height, v = velocity,  c = lightspeed.  According to relativity theory—if v = c then h = 0—thereby indicating a boundary of spacetime.  On the other hand, according to Newtonian physics, if v = c then h = 1.  In other words, h is unaffected by v.  In his 1962 book Relativity Simply Explained Martin Gardner made the exact same argument that I just made but did not put the rubber to the road in failing to conclude that if h = 0, the physical interpretation points to the realization of a spacetime boundary.

Four—Causality Breakdown.  The microcosmos of quantum theory (ie. the universe inside the atom) is the universal law of matter and is based on Planck’s constant.  Causality (ie. cause and effect) is simply the ordering of spacetime and is the foundation of the decisionmaking process.  First the baseball is thrown and then it breaks the window.  Not the other way around and not occurring simultaneously.  Quantum theory states that causality fails at the spacetime boundary of Planck’s constant.  An absence of causality means an absence of spacetime thereby indicating a boundary of spacetime.  My theory of one argues that lightspeed and Planck’s constant are the same boundary of the universe (ie. the spacetime continuum).  Inside the universal boundary lies spacetime while outside the boundary lies nothingness.

The Michelson-Morley Experiment.  In 1881 two Americans named Michelson and Morley performed a monumentally important experiment which established, beyond a doubt, that lightspeed is invariably fixed at 186,284 miles per second—regardless of relative motion.  The experiment presented a problem in that, according to Newtonian physics, velocities are additive, thus contradicting the invariance of lightspeed.  Albert Einstein (1879-1955) resolved this dilemma in 1905 with his relativity theory by revealing that space and time are variable, interrelated quantities.  In paralleling Newton, Einstein theorized that the laws of nature are the same for all uniformly moving bodies.  But unlike Newtonian physics, which only concerns itself with mechanical laws, relativity theory also accounts for the behavior of light and other electromagnetic radiation.  The Michelson-Morley experiment presents a paradigm shift in going from the variability of lightspeed to its invariability.

Five—The Aspect Experiment.  In 1982 a Frenchman named Aspect performed an astonishing experiment which proved undeniably that all photons are instantaneously connected to one another.  The theory of one explains this by recognizing the fact that there is only one photon in the universe.  Up until 1982 the scientific community believed that, according to relativity theory, there was no such thing as faster-than-light or instantaneously signaling between particles.  Lightspeed was believed to be the speed limit of the universe.  This discovery means that some of our most highly-held views of reality are radically in error.  The Aspect experiment presents a paradigm shift in going from lightspeed signaling to the appearance of instantaneous signaling.  Both Michelson-Morley and Aspect used some very advanced equipment to conduct their experiments.  The Michelson-Morley experiment (1881) provides empirical validation of relativity theory (1905) while the Aspect experiment (1982) provides empirical validation of the theory of one (2001).

Six—Simplicity and Beauty.  The English monk William of Ockham (1285-1349) was one of the greatest thinkers of all time.  He put forth his principle of economy—which states that the plurality of reasons should not be postulated without necessity.  Or in other words, if all things are equal, the simplest and most beautiful theory tends to be the right one.  Ockham employed his principle so frequently and with such purpose that it became known as Ockham’s razor.  He claimed it is vain to do with more what can be done with less.  And even today, Ockham’s razor still remains the very foundation of all truly authentic scientific reasoning.  The theory of one is simple and beautiful and therefore true.  It is the theory that lightspeed and Planck’s constant are the same boundary of the universe—and that there is only one photon—and that photon is God.

Seven—Unchallenged After Thirteen Years.  I first published the theory of one on Philosophymagazine.com on 1 January 2001.  That was thirteen years ago.  The theory of one has gone unchallenged since then.  I have sent out my theory of one material several times to dozens of governments agents across North Americaincluding physicists.  (See the Government Correspondence section on Philosophymagazine.com.)  Special relativity theory (1905) only took four years before it was recognized by the scientific community.  Quantum theory (1925) was recognized by the scientific community almost immediately.  To quote Lewis Carroll (1832-98)—The time has come, the Walrus said, to speak of many things.  In 1909 Hermann Minkowski presented a geometric interpretation of relativity theory and the scientific community took notice.  Ironically, Minkowski was also Einstein’s university professor and described him as a lazy dog who never bothered with mathematics at all—which makes sense given that Einstein sought elemental conceptual pictures first before considering mathematical complexities.

Conclusion.  My theory of one is supported by seven significant arguments.  We need to base our society on arguments rather than opinions.  All I am asking from the government is to answer my arguments.  You can compel the government to respond to my arguments by nominating me for the Nobel Prize.
