An introduction to the Structure of Reality theory first published on 7th March 2014 with many updates since.
Here is my current version of the introduction to the main theory The Stucture of Reality (last updated 12nd January 2016 -only PART 1 updated so far. )
Based on the observations gained from measurements, instrumental observations and rational logic together with what we as humans experience, the spatial universe appears as extending away from us in all directions to an indefinite distance. The reason of it being indefinite is the lack of observational ability at further distances. Only the application of logical implications flowing from the observed area can predict what exists at these very far distances. Among the actual observations there is nothing to suggest that at any further distance anything different may occur to what we already observe at shorter distances.The logic of a three dimensional Cartesian geometry may be able to provide some answers, since throughout the observed regions of the spatial environment a 3D Cartesian geometry seems to represent the structure of space perfectly. If applied to the unobservable far away regions, it indicates an infinite extension. Time, of course, is a fourth dimension which allows the spatial structure continued existence.
There is much more to it though, as other elements exist throiughout the observed spatial region. Matter, for instance appears distributed throughout the observed part and nothing whatsoever suggests that in the further out regions infinity there should be anything different from what is observed inside the observable region. Matter itself seems more complex than just being tangible. Forces cause interaction between matter parts to create an evolution of events measurable in time. But strangely enough, forces always emanate from matter and this clearly sugests that forces are a fuction of matter itself. Matter is found inside the four dimensional spatial environment as a kind of tenant in a room. It conforms to the three dimensional structure, as it must, but in many ways it is quite different from space.
If the four dimensional spatial environment is abstacted out as a primary state of things, it would be as a pure infinite emptiness with continuing existence into an indefinitely long future. The rational extension of observed time span is that there is nothing whatsoever suggesting anything different that may occur occur than already observed so the the infinite emptiness must continue to exist, minute to minute, moment to moment, perfectly continuously into an infinite future. Of course the same reasoning can be applied to trace time back to an infinite past as well. In fact, with mattter abstacted out of consideration it is not possible to generate a passage of time, so it can only be considered as a continually existing present. This is an aspect of time that has not been subject to much discussion to date. It is the absolute value behind material existence. The idea of passage of time requires the addition of matter and all its other fuctions.
Some aspects are in common like the four dimensionality but there are great differences between the host environment of infinite emptiness and matter found inside it. The interactivity of matter is internally fuelled by its own functions and appears present in space everywhere throughout it. In some ways it is as though space and matter are opposites. For instance, the pure emptiness of space is a single infinitely extended continuous unity, indivisible throughout its unbounded range and its perfect continuity. Matter on the other hand is everywhere finitely structured, always fragmented, its forces fading out with distance. Both however appear together in the actual domain, as though inseparable. It is in fact a five dimensional mix with matter the fifth dimension.
It may for the fifth dimension of the reality formula but matter is itself multi dimensional with forces as one of its aspect and tangibility as another. While in one sense matter can be thought of as tangible substance having mass and some degree of solidity or relative impenetrability, the forces emanating from matter are not tangible having the power of attraction or repulsion inherent within them. Forces create interaction between the tangible matter parts. This is clearly seen in our world of matter based on the familiar atomic structures. They form the building blocks of our world of tangible matter subject to the evolution of events, but the atom is also a composite structure with its very small parts rapidly interacting through forces generated between them to create a much larger particle. These large atomic structures contain mostly empty space with very small rapidly interacting parts creating zones of exclusion we and we recognise as solidity. The interaction between shell electrons and the central nucleus of an atom creates a very much larger zone of impenetrability than that of their parts combined .
At the heart of the atom, the parts of the nucleus are now also known to be made of interacting parts. The search goes on for more particles and modern colliders are discovering many new components by colliding particles. Some particles once separated from their interaction become untenable and quickly unwind seemingly disappearing into some void. In fact it probably unwinds into its smaller parts which are no longer detectable. No particle can completely disappear into a state of non-existence. Other outcomes may be re-integration into other existing structures. With all these downscale discoveries it would not be unreasonable to wonder just how deep downscale are the roots of our world of matter.
The host environment of space as an infinite emptiness can offer no resistance to further deconstruction into smaller and smaller parts to any degree of minisculity, or even to infinity. While there may be nothing preventing an infinite deconstruction, it still remains to be found whether matter can ever have the kind of stabilityobserved if its roots are infinite. The search for a finite answer has not yielded satisfactory results. There have been a number different ideas attempting a finite a solution, but none have been universally acclaimed, the most obvious one being that an ultimate base particle or particles at the bottom this hieachy af particles forms the foundation of matter. This would entail some kind of elementary structure that cannot be further divided possibly with absolute solidity and there are difficulties in explaining such a state as it is bound to lead to what is called a 'vicious regress', with further and further different explanations needed. In fact it leads to infinitry too but can never be resolved. The idea of a foundation particle is only a fancy created by our thinking conditioned by experience to finite solutions. Others attempts at a finite solution argued for some sort of circular extra dimensional finiteness, some with convex or concave warping of space or strings and many other things, unfotunately all fanciful and impossible to comprehend by the rational mind. It is hard to argue against something that is totally impossible to be understood. These mathematical solutions suffer from a credibilty gap in proving their correct application to the actual reality. There are and have been numerous theories and try to understand any of them! Admittedly some of these sound very exciting and powerful in inspiring the human imagination into fantasy. Modern art and culture has been greatly influenced by them. But so have many other mystical and fantastical ideas or ghostly tales. As the facts stand at present none of these theories have yet succeed in solving the physics problem in its entirety, not even Quantum or Relativity theories which seem to rule their respective fields of competence, yet unable to reconcile into a single theoretical solution.
If finite solutions fail, there is the remainig solution of an infinity of deconstruction into smaller and smaller interaction parts. It presents no obstacles as the idea of the continuance of reduction into smaller and smaller more and more dynamic interacting parts with no end to the process requires nothing more than applying by implication what is already known to occur on the small scales immediately observable. It only needs the application of the same principles to even smaller scales not accessible to direct observation. Unfortunately the mind can be uneasy on this point as infinity is difficult to accept having been conditioned in our limited experience and observation to finite outcomes. The other difficulty is that infinity can never be proved by direct observation. Yet it does not in any sense mean it is a state that cannot exist. A solution by logical extension not unlike the solution for infinite distances can provide a satisfactory answer. Infinity is a problem for the mind but it is not actually counter intuitive, merely beyond our capacity to quantify in the usual way. There are other obstacles. The question may arise whether our world of matter with infinite reduction of parts can be thought of as having some sort of roots? Each particle in the process, however many steps of reduction downscale still would have an infinity of further reduction as its roots. Is this not a firm and strong basis to our reality? Surely it is a very strong set of roots for matter.
Just how the reduction process works is based on our knowledge of how matter reduces within our observable scales. The process will be subject of discussion below in part 2 . The best part is yet to come.
An infinite deconstruction to smaller and smaller interactive parts would mean there is no ultimate foundation to matter. Yet every structure type deconstructed into, has its roots in a further infinity of deconstructions. In this way matter is certainly not without foundations. A foundation in infinity. Just another infinite aspect of reality. But with the idea of an infinite deconstruction into smaller and smaller interactive elements, another very important question arises. The deconstruction downscale is one way of looking at it, but taken from the other direction from the small scale upward, the process of structure building eventually reaches the atoms and then it seem to terminate with our discerned world of matter. But why stop here? After an infinity of steps why terminate at that point? There is no valid explanation, there are no specific clues. Perhaps it doesn't terminate with our perceived matter. Is it possible to show a continuation of the process into the large scales of astronomy and the universe at large? In fact there are large scale structures commonly found like stars and their solar systems, and on a larger scale galaxies and their larger formations. This evidence may indicate a possible continuance, but how can the large scale structures be seen as part of the same system? How can the micro world of extremely rapid dynamics be compared to what happens on larger scales and beyond in a world with very slow interaction between parts and there seems no possibility to creating regions of exclusion as with the rapid interactive dynamics of atoms.
There is a way to compare them, but there are crucial time factors to reconsider. These time factors have never yet been subject of discussion. This is a breakthrough in itself and it opens the way to a new understanding of time. The infinity of spatial extension allows for the existence of any larger size structure whatsoever to infinity. Adding that the time continues infinitely into the future the structures of the macro world of astronomy can with a modification of the time concept be seen to evolve as rapidly as atoms. It is not actually changing it but broadening of its range to include other ways of considering it.
As the mind thinks way upscale where the huge structures that exist at that scale level. All the interaction at this level would look very slow by our way of seeing it, almost at a standstill. The time factor needs further clarification. For us to perceive our world of matter a moment of discernment can be defined as a fraction of a second. The moments are tagged together to form a continuous stream. While we define a moment as a fraction of a second, on the large scale this could never be significant. When a moment is redefined to considerably longer intervals, like millions or trillions of years or more, and they are tagged together as rapidly as we do our moments, the huge megastructures of astronomy would be seen with a more rapid dynamics and could then be seen to be evolving not unlike our world of atoms. This way of seeing it can then lead to understanding of the possibility of other worlds of matter on very large scales. The long intervals turn into a rapid sequence of moments and the mega structures evolve rapidly in a causal evolution of events. It would result in a set of physical laws as observable at those levels, but it is all one physics appearing differently at different scale levels.
To understand this mega reality a little better in a thought experiment imagine levels of magnitude upscale at which huge interacting structure types that create another matter style environment, by our way of seeing it extremely slowly, but on the large scale in a matter style environment huge perceiving creatures could evolve. It could be thousands of levels upscale or much more or less. These creatures would be created by their relative micro matter base, which in our terms would still be huge. With the redefined moments to sequences of very long periods of our time, they would perceive their mega world to be as rapid as we see ours. Their perception mechanisms and instruments would function based on the dynamics of the large scale micro matter that creates their world. With further matter construction to infinity of large scales many other even larger scale matter style environments could exist, perhaps an infinity of them. In the downscale reduction it is the reverse argument to the upscale, with tiny structures evolving very rapidly and any perceiving creatures that may exist in these downscale materialities would be created by their micro matter base and their world by our view evolving extremely rapidly, but they would also perceive their environment not unlike we perceive ours. From our point of view the evolution of events would be far too rapid and in very miniscule scale to be discerned by us, perhaps ever.
The infinite transformations of the matter process produces infinite layers of different structure types, each spread throughout the entire universe, the same universe but at different scales and different dynamics. Atoms for instance could be said to be spread throughout the universe, as they are. On a larger scale levels it could be said that solar systems are spread throughout the universe, as they are, and then galaxies etc... and the same applies at each level downscale with an infinity of layers upscale and down. This strongly suggests that our matter base has an underlying layer of micro infrastructure.
So far the discussion has been about size differences, but there is the question of dynamics. There is an important dynamic process that drives the entire system. It is cyclicality, but not in the sense of orbital cyclicality only. For instance, a back and forth pulsation can be considered cyclical as can many other configurations. In galaxies with billons of stars there are some that disintegrate and others are created from their debris so there are roughly the same number always. On micro scales electrons cycle very rapidly about (not necessarily around) the nucleus. The cyclical movement is rapid enough to set up a sphere of relative solidity or impenetrability. In turn at the next level downscale the atomic nuclear parts are also composite, created by even smaller interacting parts and they in turn are also composite with cyclical paths considerably shorter at each step downscale. While the paths shorten the speeds at which these shorter paths are traversed are not significantly reduced creating higher cyclical frequencies at each step of reduction downscale. With upscale structuring into the world of astronomy the cyclical paths are considerably longer at each level upscale but the speed at which they can be traversed has a maximum value, so lower cyclical frequencies are inevitable with each upscale transformation. With an infinity of structure layers representing unique and different types of formations both upscale and downscale there can be no limit to variation. Every step upscale or down reveals different configuration types spread throughout the universe.
In summary, the interaction of structures both upscale and down is facilitated by various types of forces. But in fact forces emanate from matter itself and are functions of matter. The dynamics behind the system is is cyclicality. Downscale cyclical frequencies increase, upscale cyclical frequencies decrease. Toward the micro, at present we are looking at several levels deep. Beyond that the minute structure types involved are too small and frequencies too rapid to discern as matter having substance, appearing as energy only. But a zero mass solution is only relative. There is a mass, there is always mass however small. On larger scales at our level of matter discernment we can observe energy stored and transferred from matter to matter. On micro scales energy that may appear without an obvious matter host would have its matter base at micro levels below our discernment capabilities.. In the ultimate terms of the overall reality, our perceived world of substance happens to be positioned somewhere along an infinite chain of upward structuring ranging from infinitely small to the infinitely large. The Structure of Reality theory is unique as it presents a totally self contained universe, a complete and comprehensive and exhaustive model of reality which can be understood, with nothing required to be brought in from outside its own parameters. It explains what reality is and how it works. It is the foundation concept from which a detailed physics can be generated. It is also the ultimate human understanding of how we fit in and what we are to the overall reality at large.
Above I have presented a viable solution to the understanding of reality. Historically, in the absence of a solution the problem of reality has been ignored and put aside, so long as there exist theories that work well enough on their respective scale levels as do Quantum and Relativity theories. But surely something must be missing. Abstract mathematically based attempts to explain physical phenomena can easily be misapplied and it is difficult to spot incorrect attribution to physical elements. The two main theories of Quantum and Relativity still cannot be completely reconciled and it remains a mystery how Relativity can explain the behaviour of larger scale phenomena but cannot operate well enough on the quantum level, and how quantum physics fails to explain the large scale world where Relativity is so useful. The search for a bridging idea to bring the two theories together has not yielded success for near a century, but not for a lack of trying. Here is a theory that is fully comprehensive and self-contained with nothing imported from the outside to make it seem valid. I believe this is the turning point for future thought about reality. How long it will take for it to be fully recognised I cannot guess. I can only keep refining and perfecting its expression for future generations and bring a new vision to the relatively few who recognise its value today.
