Physics - A Unified View
Physicists have been striving for that elusive "theory of everything" for decades, without being able to reconcile diverging theories and different forces that we observe. My own interest in this has been that of a curious bystander, jotting my ideas down here and there and eventually collecting them in a webpage.
I do not keep up too well with that side of things, but a recent article in Infinite Energy magazine caught my eye. The Cosmic Microwave Background and the Unification of Physics is written by Eugene Sittampalam, an engineer by training.
The paper discusses the cosmic microwave background and introduces a new concept of the photon. The nature of matter and of gravity is discussed and a surprising interpretation of relativistic "time dilation" is proposed. Dark matter and black holes are irreverently removed and a description of the structure of a perfectly cyclical universe is proposed in the author's far reaching quest for clarity.
Submitted to one of the Physics magazines, it received what Eugene Mallove of Infinite Energy described as sneer review - rejection out of hand.
Why, you might ask, read a paper that has been rejected by one of the prestigious publications? Well - Sittampalam takes a bold step in the right direction. He questions the prevailing view in physics and he puts something eminently more sensible up for our consideration.
If you are interested at all in matters of physics, I would suggest you dig out your copy of Infinite Energy and take a look. You can find the magazine here and I would suggest you do subscribe. You will see many interesting articles on research into new ways to generate useful energy without using fossil fuel resources.
If you're really impatient and want to start reading immediately, you can also download a PDF version of the paper while waiting for the magazine to arrive:
The paper is a condensed version of Sittampalam's book, to be found on Amazon.

Subject: Toward the betterment of science

Dear Learned Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please be good enough to accept the above material for perusal. You may find the matter of utmost importance in many fields. Most notably, lives could be saved in major earthquakes like the one last week in Asia. Prediction of such natural disasters - hours before the surface tremors - is now possible even with existing facilities if one knows what to look for and where to look for it. Last week's death toll is unacceptable in this day and age. What's even more shameful for us "high-tech" and "future today" folks is that the tremors were picked up by monitors within minutes; yet, with hours to spare, countries around failed to get alerted to the impending danger. Please do give the matter some serious thought.¬†
Thank you and best regards.

New Physics: Debating Einstein, Matter, Time and Space
My recent posting of Eit Gaastra's speculative work under the title Beyond Einstein's Relativity: Cosmology Dissident Says Big Bang Absurd has drawn quite some comments, which I would like to share. I also believe it might be useful if there were a forum, perhaps in the form of a site such as this one, for making alternative views to current cosmology known and for feeding back comments to the authors....

A Universe of Scale - Stars edge closer
Can communication be transmitted over distance without the need for electromagnetic radiation "travelling" to carry the message? Hartmut Mueller of the Institute for Space-Energy-Research in Wolfratsthausen, Germany, says it can. Mueller has developed a theory of global scaling, which states that matter and energy organize in accordance with principles of scale. The "nodes" or preferred points of concentration, may be distant in linear space, but adjacent in "logarithimic space",... [read more]

Emergence - a Holistic Theory of Physics
The exclusion of "non physical" phenomena from the field of investigations of physics has been severely limiting our potential for better understanding the universe. It is true that the reductionist approach generally employed by scientific enquiry has given us great progress in particular areas, but it is also true that our understanding of the broader realities of the physical universe is still severely lacking. I have long been advocating, on... [read more]

Space Vortex Theory: Einstein and Tewari's 'Cartesian Universe'
Einstein’s Greatest Blunder is the title of a paper by Roger A. Rydin, Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering Emeritus at the University of Virginia, who says that Einstein's general theory, for all its mathematical elegance, should never have been applied to cosmological questions. In the Introduction, Rydin says: The 1915 exposition of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity (GR), plus the 1929 empirical statement of Hubble's Law, were the basis of... [read more]

Beyond Einstein's Relativity: Cosmology Dissident Says Big Bang Absurd
Eit Gaastra, a Dutch chemical engineer who turned to cosmology to find meaning in life and explanations for the origin of this universe, says that the Big Bang is an absurd theory and that we will be laughing about Einstein before too long. Strong words, especially as they don't come from an established scientific authority but from a self-taught dissident. For those interested in the details of Eit's Infinite Universe... [read more]

Physics and ultimate cause
Physics is struggling to comprehend the workings of our Universe but most of the establishment physicists refuse to consider that they might have to transcend the purely material to find the whys and wherefores and thus the basic laws of physical existence. John Dobson, in a lecture held more than two decades ago, has pioneered the way towards understanding the energetic interactions that form the base of all physical existence.... [read more]
