As a microprocessor systems design engineer in Tampa, Florida I'd occasionally read a surfing magazine from the Pacific coast or Hawaii, which were sold around the area although the glorious Floridian Gulf Coast had no waves of Polynesian proportions to surf on. The wave in the picture above is actually Polynesian from a surfing magazine. The selection was scanned from my photo album Inside a Chambered Nautilus. The photo of myself is a double exposure taken in my 2nd story office in a two-bedroom apartment, where I was set up with an excellent collection of engineering books and an IBM PC. The palms outside my apartment window not far from the beach were beautiful. I was dating to find a wife to the tune of I Wonder Why and Love Is the Only Chain on Art Garfunkel's LEFTY.

In the burst of elementary particles, a brainy figure gestures in exaltation in the posture of Centaurus, waving his hands over a cross of Cartesian coordinates and a factor of 4. For a larger version, see [3].

After leaving Clearwater in 1991 and returning to Wichita, Kansas, I focused my mind for a time on ultimate equations of theoretical physics, and discovered overthrow theorems for classical general relativity by concentrating on Einstein's Ricci tensor field equations in Cartesian coordinates. I made a study of The Meaning of Relativity by Einstein, in which he reveals how to put the geodesic equation of motion into an electromagnetic form like

F = m[Egrav + v x (curl Agrav)] = m[Egrav + v x Bgrav]

to first order. I noted that his weak-field equations lead to an apparent violation of the conservation equations [1], namely the equation of continuity. Also, the extra factor of 4 I discovered in the Einstein GR solutions for the grav-magnetic force Bgrav meant that interactions between gravitating bodies in motion would be out of sync with electromagnetic forces in local coordinates, with grav-magnetic forces 4 times too strong to have been derived simply from local Lorentz transformations in the same way one derives the magnetic field from moving electrically charged sources in electomagnetics. That is,

Bgrav_Einstein_GR = 4 x Bgrav_electromagnetic-like.

The force of gravitation itself would not obey The Principle of Relativity described by Galileo and by Einstein in special relativity, although the components of the metric tensor, at least, would be Lorentz-covariant in local coordinates. It was commonly admitted by physicists that the gravitational force was not locally Lorentz covariant in General Relativity, but it was not generally known that what this amounted to was that grav-magnetic forces would be 4 times as strong as in a theory with gravitational forces locally Lorentz covariant. There were measurable differences between such theories, but the experiments were tough experiments to do. Also, no one else saw how to get the perihelion precession of Mercury and the curvature of light around the Sun to come out with their known values from anything but General Relativity until I showed how to do it with unified quantum field theory. Wheeler, Thorne, and Misner [1] had previously pointed out some difficulties with the weak-field GR equations, stating that their observations grew out of a 1939 paper by Fierz and Pauli, and pointed out that the principle of equivalence did not immediately yield the curvature of space, but only gravitational time-dilation. I was looking into the electroweak model as described by Cottingham & Greenwood at the time...the one used to unify [2] the weak interaction and electromagnetism, and discovered a symmetric and natural generalization of it that included all of the other forces, especially the strong nuclear force, which I managed to obtain as a power series expansion from the solutions to the central generalized Maxwell's equations of the model [3]. The unified quantum field theory was based on generalized classical vector-boson field theory, using a simple form of the electroweak model derived during the 1970s by Weinberg and Salam [2]. The form I chose was also discussed somewhat in books on Grand Unified Theories, although I believe I was the first to obtain the nuclear force expansion from the core equations and to frame the theory in MKSC units in a form engineers find familiar from electromagnetics. In addition, I think my treatment is the clearest ever given. It includes the Cottingham & Greenwood presentation of the weak interaction with embellishments.

[1] GRAVITATION by Wheeler, Thorne, and Misner. Their book presented a fairly decent non-self-consistency theorem billed as the 1939 Pauli-Fierz theorem without accepting it, thereby contriving to miss the thorn that would have deflated the entire model. I discovered a similar theorem independently in 1992. Since reading the 1939 Pauli-Fierz paper, I suppose Misner, Wheeler, and Thorne had more to do with GR non-self-consistency theorems than I at first suspected. The Pauli-Fierz paper was much less definite.
[2] INTRODUCTION TO NUCLEAR PHYSICS by Cottingham & Greenwood. This book contains a nice introduction to the electroweak model without quite divulging its field equations! But it contained enough clues to find them and derive their equation of motion.
[3] GRAVITATION & THE ELECTROFORM MODEL by James A. Green, 11th edition, 2000. Contains the clearest forms of the GR non-self-consistency theorems leading to the electroform unified field theory based on symmetrized standard-model vector-boson field theory with gravitational time-dilation only in MKSC units. This edition shows how to obtain the correct curvature of light around the sun and perihelion precession of Mercury for a unified quatum field theory of this type.
[4] I note that the unified field theory of forces described by the electroform model seems to be connected to the mystic imaging system. This is involved in determining the mythic forms in the bubble chamber photograph from CERN, above to the left. We often find evidence of it's existence in terrestrial cloud cover photos, for instance in weather satellite images. Details on the mythic connection to field theory are described in 11th editions. However, the mythic imaging effect is more profound: the entire celestial sphere is a grand celestial projection with virtual standing-wave symmetries organized around us like a mirroring beacon of higher intelligence in the Universe, complete with imaging constellations, imaging nebulae, imaging galaxies, and illustrated worlds like Mars or the Moon that sub-illustrate the story told in the 88 constellations.

Wichita State University's Ablah Library, A NetScape & MicroSoft Internet Explorer Site now equipped with fast, high-resolution DELL computers (Intel inside) with broadband Internet. The Wichita Public Library also supports broadband Internet. We have had public access to the net since 1994. I have had 56Kb Internet privately since 1998.
