There are many things about mainstream physics that infuriate me, not the least of which is the physicist’s understanding of motion. In this multi-part article, I will argue that the physicist’s understanding of movement is fundamentally flawed, on a par with the flat earth hypothesis. I believe that having a correct foundational model of movement will unleash an age of free energy and extremely fast transportation. It will be an age where vehicles have no need of wheels, move silently at enormous speeds with no visible means of propulsion and negotiate right-angle turns without slowing down.
Physicists, Magic and Zatoichi
I know. The preceding paragraph sounds like crackpot nonsense but most of you who regularly read my blog know that I am not one to shy away from expressing my views even if they get me branded as a crackpot. In fact, I am a rebel at heart and I relish the satisfaction of rubbing the scientific community’s nose in their own excrement. But before you get too offended by my irreverent attitude (I love science, ok?), consider that physicists believe in magic. You don’t believe me? Go ask a physicist to explain why two objects in relative inertial motion remain in motion. You will get either one or both of the following answers.
- Nothing is needed to keep them in motion. Newton proved it already.
- Physics is not about the ‘why’ of things but the ‘how’.
In Part II, I will deconstruct the above answers and show that physicists are just as ignorant as the man in the street about the nature of motion. Heck, the man in the street may have a leg up on them; that's how bad I think the problem with motion is.
