Essay Abstract

In the 19th century, people have mastered sound waves, electromagnetic waves in the 20th century. The 21st century should be a century of gravitational waves! Newton opened a door to the near space, and we have mastered it. Laplace opened a window in the Grand Universe and the first experimentally estimated that the speed of gravitational interaction of eight orders of magnitude higher than the speed of light. No one has been able to refute the Laplace experiments, and we see Laplace waves on the wall of the Metagalaxy. However, Einstein theory of relativity postulates just closed this window. It's time to have the courage to open the window to the Universe again, as Mankind is challenged by the most important task of creating a Galactic Internet. We have shown that the gravitational field is formed by fields of each atom, thus forming together a metaatom. The total gravitational field of metaatoms has a complex spatial structure, depending on the relative speeds (temperatures) and the distance between gravitating objects. Systems of metaatom form planets, stars, galaxies, and the Metagalaxy. The simplest metaatom is a hydrogen atom, which gravitational field consists of two components: the classical Newtonian gravity acting on a distance of 2.7 ∙ 1020 m (the radius of the galaxy), and 11 orders of magnitude weaker gravitational forces of repulsion, but acting up to distances of 1.1 ∙ 1026 m (radius of the Metagalaxy). Using obtained fundamental macroquantum laws it is possible to develop a new class of devices based on the coherent gravity waves effects for imaging gravitating objects ranging in size from man to Earth as a whole, and also to investigate the gravitational (bio) field of people.

Alex,

You nail the problem of physics with this sentence "Let us remember that the basic laws of physics were obtained experimentally, and to this day they do not follow from any of mathematical models."

For the rest of the essay, well, ..... aahm, ... lets put it this way: we agree that contemporary physics is not on the right track however concerning the alternatives presented we agree to disagree

Dear Sir,

You have presented the Einsteinian view that “gravity acts in the same way on different bodies, giving them the same acceleration regardless of their mass, chemical composition and other properties”. Einsteinian space-time curvature calculations were based on vacuum, i.e. on a medium without any gravitational properties (since it has no mass). If a material medium is...

Alexander,

If given the time and the wits to evaluate over 120 more entries, I have a month to try. My seemingly whimsical title, “It’s good to be the king,” is serious about our subject.

Dear Alexander,

I enjoyed reading your essay because it shows a person willing to challenge currently accepted wisdom, even Einstein's, and capable of presenting his ideas clearly and quantitatively.

Some things in your essay are hard to accept - why take Laplace's word about cosmic phenomena - made 200 years ago when even the concept of galaxy was not formed? Equating the speed of gravitation with that of light seems reasonable, particularly as you yourself state that "A priori gravity and electromagnetism are inseparable. This is a manifestation of the same nature!" Why limit the extent of gravity to the galaxy? Astronomical phenomena show there is attraction between different galaxies.

I have my own reasons for refusing Einstein's over-complex description of gravity based on spacetime. In my qualitative 2005 Beautiful Universe Theory also found here I show an ether mechanism for how gravity acts as an optical field of variable index of diffraction (i.e. density). Unfortunately this is just a 'model' but it is one based on examining the experimental phenomena and making a theory to explain them as simply as possible.

I wish you the best in your research.

Vladimir

Hello Alexander,

I find your paper intriguing. Like Vladimir, I must commend you fro your boldness to present such a proposal here, but this effort falls short of being a serious research paper on the subject. I can tell you that there are people who are researching some of these matters seriously, or who have research proposals on the table. You may be interested in joining the discussion on this FQXi Forum page regarding a paper "Dimensional reduction in the sky" that discusses the possibility raised by VanFlandern that the speed of gravity is different from that of light (tensor mode vs scalar propagation).

But be advised; researchers would need to develop some serious broadband GW detectors, with a much greater sensitivity than those built to date - to do what you propose. Although Steinhardt stated at the end of his Scientific American article, and in his FFP11 talk, that we need to probe the Gravity Wave Background to really know which Cosmology is correct; most working scientists seem disinclined to seriously question Inflation, and gravity wave physics has to struggle to get any funding at all. Still; there are folks looking to develop this, and some see the possibility for GW communications across vast distances as realistic, once the technical hurtles are overcome.

All the Best,

Jonathan

Dear Alexander,

That is a very nice essay on gravitation. There is a question that bothers me, if gravity cause attraction why does earth move near to sun at perihelion and gravity allows it to move away at aphelion, instead of moving nearer and spiraling inwards to sun? Have you seen my essay. Kindly take a look and rate if you like it.

Best regards,

Akinbo

Alexander,

I agree with your analysis and conclusion that mathematical models alone are insufficient to form an understanding of our physical universe. I found your insight and conclusion well in keeping with the findings I have obtained from a 12 year experiment I have recently concluded. So I found it easy to rate your essay a 10/10 and I hope you will be willing to return the favor of rating my essay in kind.

Best wishes and good luck in the competition.
