Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Essay Abstract

Time is a functional entity, derived from the fundamental property of basic 3D matter particles to move at a constant linear seed. 3D matter has no ability to act or move. It is the all-encompassing medium around the 3D matter particle, which moves the 3D matter particle at the highest possible speed. Unit of time is related to the interval required by an elementary 3D matter particle to traverse definite quantity of all-encompassing medium in space. Relating other activities, about 3D matter bodies, to time help us to rationalise in terms of cause and effect relations. Due to its lack of physical form, time can neither expand nor contract nor flow in any direction.

Author Bio

Nainan K Varghese is a retired Electrical Engineer. He is doing independent research in fundamental questions in Physics. Result of his research, for the past 25 years, is published in “Hypothesis on MATTER”. It is a revolutionary new concept that logically explains all physical phenomena, based on just one type of postulated matter particle – the quanta of matter. This new concept explains all complex physical phenomena with simple cause and effect relationships and without actions at a distance.
