Why? How? And A Bit Of Arts
One of the hardest things we come across in our lives is defying what we are accustomed to. It is indeed true, especially when it is against to what is rational or reasonable for us. It is when it disagrees with our common sense. The history of Science proves this. It took 13 hundred years before the Astronomers and even the Catholic Church diverted to the now-accepted Heliocentrism. Ten hundred years has passed before the Atomic Theory was accepted by the Science community. Also, Albert Einstein came across many difficulties to dispute 300 years of Newtonian Physics with his Theory of Relativity. And this is still the same for us people, even up to present time. But not for me and not until today.
I put a hundred years of Einsteinian Physics and his famous E = mc² to question and doubt of its scientific validity. Today, ladies and gentlemen, I present to everyone here my Theory of Non-Dimensional Nature of Elementary Particles of Matter, or simply, the Theory of Non-Dimensionality.
In early 20th century, a new branch of Physics emerged after Einstein’s Theory of Relativity was hypothesised. Since then, the Relativity has been the sole foundation of Modern Physics, particularly the branches Relativistic Mechanics and Quantum Physics.
At present, many technologies are critically dependent on Relativistic Mechanics, a branch of Physics studying high velocities comparable to the speed of light or c. The understanding of the concepts behind these technologies only arose with the knowledge of Relativity.
Development of particle accelerators, devices that use electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high velocities, relies upon our knowledge of the effects of Relativity on the process. These accelerators are being used in different applications such as particle therapy, production of integrated circuits, several industrial processes and researches, and biomedical purposes. Moreover, low-energy accelerators are used in cathode ray tubes found in television sets and X-ray generators.
Similarly, Global Positioning System or GPS, a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information, was conceptualised with the Relativity accounting for the corrections due to time dilation from high-velocity orbiting artificial satellites.
In addition, many modern technologies operate at a scale dealing with Quantum Physics, a study which deals with small distances or of the order of Planck constant, h.
For instance, technology of laser, a device that emits electromagnetic radiation or light through optical amplification, depends on the concepts we know in Quantum Physics and the Relativity Theory. As we all know, lasers have significant applications in the field of medicine, military and forensic science, and manufacturing, and are found in everyday products that we use, such as laser printers, CDs and other optical disks, and barcode scanners.
However, despite our understanding of Relativity, many phenomena apropos matter and universe are yet scientifically unexplained. Consequently, advancements in technology regress.
In another point of view, the Theory of Non-Dimensionality presents a different perception on the nature of the elementary particles that might provide scientific opportunities for unknown technologies that greatly depend on our understanding of Relativistic and Quantum Physics.
Several technologies that we presently consider to be surreal and fictional might be developed with supporting concrete scientific explanation from knowledge deduced from the theory. Time Travel, Star Trek’s Warp-Drive, Teleportation, and other applications that deal with infinitely high velocities, infinitely small distances, and time, might be actualised with a better understanding of the nature of the building blocks of matter. Additionally, unexplained phenomena in the universe, like Black Holes, Antimatter, and Universal Expansion, might, as well, be scientifically accounted for.
In comparison, the Theory of Non-Dimensionality presents a similarly redefined Relativity that accounts for the errors in Einstein’s Theory. Yet, it presents a distinctively new concept of the nature of elementary particles of matter.
In Einstein’s Relativity, it is assumed that no particle can be accelerated faster than the speed of light and can exist smaller than the Planck constant. However, as one of its dissimilarities with Relativity, the Theory of Non-Dimensionality views that the particles can be accelerated to an infinitely high velocity and exist in a non-dimensional nature. The latter disregards the asymptotic supposition of Relativity in line with recent experimental evidences debunking Einstein’s theory.
Also, in Relativity, elementary particles of matter are visualised to be physically dimensional and are finite in a given amount of matter. On the other hand, in Theory of Non-Dimensionality, the particles are considered to be physically intangible and are infinite in a matter. Geometrically, a non-dimensional elementary particle of a matter is comparable to the indefiniteness of infinitely many points in a line.
Lastly, elementary particles proposed by the Relativity Theory are physically perceivable limited by Planck constant. In contrast, in the Theory of Non-Dimensionality, the particles are dimensionless (i.e., they do not occupy space) and may be energy in nature.
With the great advancements and continuous developments in the study of Physics, and Science at large, I believe that one day this theory I presented to everyone will be a scientific law and govern all phenomena happening in our universe. Certainly, the study of the universe, the Science, is a never-ending process of asking and answering questions of absolute truth. It is an eternal battle with the norms we ourselves created to seek for the reality that sometimes opposes what we currently know. Yes, E might not be equal to mc² and might be proven true years from now. Yes, sooner or later, the Relativity Theory will be replaced with a new one that will better conceptualise the natural phenomena happening in the universe. With this, I want to end my speech leaving everyone the challenge to think without boundaries and to explore without doubts, and the excitement of what tomorrow’s Physics might bring us and to our hands.
