Tam, I read your three columns- "On Relativity," "On Time and Free Will," and "The Source". I am happy to note that you are advocating same thought as I am doing. You are one of very few persons, who have agreed with me that we need to rise above Einsteinian Relativity and that empty space is really not empty. I have not written any columns on this subject as you have done, but have published a book titled 'Lines of Space' on amazon. If you are interested in finding out how we can transcend Einsteinian relativity and what do we get by doing so, this book is for you. I shall send you an e-book if you wish.
On Something from Nothing?
Posted on August 6 at 10:48 p.m.
Tam, you wrote in your introduction,"I didn’t find the effort entirely convincing personally, as I discuss in the interview below. My feeling is that it is more plausible that there has always been something, rather than a literal nothing, and our universe sprang in some manner from this eternal something." I fully agree with you, in spite of the fact that I have also read Krauss's book and found it very interesting. He gives a philosophical reason for creation of universe from nothing, and he is very close to the truth. In fact, until now, among all the books I have read, he is closest to the truth. I am of the view that there is something in the space which is not yet understood by us ( so may be called nothing as Krauss has done), but it is there. It makes us realize its effect in the form of gravity. Einstein had been trying to figure out gravity for many years as he said 'Phenomenon of gravity must spring from some property of space- time". He later proposed it to be curvature of space-time in his general theory of relativity. After the proof ( bending of light found during solar eclipse of 1919) of his General theory of relativity, the idea of curvature of space-time as gravity was considered authenticate. If you are looking for that 'something', you will find it in gravity, but will have to free yourself from the concept of space-time curvature and observer-dependent theory of relativity. By saying so, I know, I am taking you beyond the established laws of physics and the logic of Einstein (God of science for all of us), but I derive the courage to say this from the fact that there is one mathematical relation giving us a proof that this 'something' in the space can convert to form matter and the same relation combines four fundamental forces into one force. I call this 'something' as 'Lines of Space'. If you are interested to discuss further, you are most welcome. As Krauss said in his interview, "Scientists are skeptical, and do not change viewpoints easily," exactly, it is proving difficult for me also to tell them that there are 'Lines of Space' in the space itself, similar to magnetic lines of force, which can convert into matter, and are responsible for gravitational, electrical and nuclear forces.
