Finally, a theory of everything that can be explained to a child.

It seems music has been man's primal clue to understanding the Universe.

This new understanding of matter is finding real world applications in quantum computing and superconductor and semiconductor research.

It also explains quantum entaglement.(Einstien's spooky action at a distance)

A great explanation of how it all works:

Carver Mead has successfully applied Wolff's theory to Electrodynamics. 1-1

In this book Carver Mead offers a radically new approach to the standard problems of electromagnetic theory. Motivated by the belief that the goal of scientific research should be the simplification and unification of knowledge, he describes a new way of doing electrodynamics—collective electrodynamics—that does not rely on Maxwell's equations, but rather uses the quantum nature of matter as its sole basis. Collective electrodynamics is a way of looking at how electrons interact, based on experiments that tell us about the electrons directly. (As Mead points out, Maxwell had no access to these experiments.)

The results Mead derives for standard electromagnetic problems are identical to those found in any text. Collective electrodynamics reveals, however, that quantities that we usually think of as being very different are, in fact, the same—that electromagnetic phenomena are simple and direct manifestations of quantum phenomena. Mead views his approach as a first step toward reformulating quantum concepts in a clear and comprehensible manner.

The book is divided into five sections: magnetic interaction of steady currents, propagating waves, electromagnetic energy, radiation in free space, and electromagnetic interaction of atoms. In an engaging preface, Mead tells how his approach to electromagnetic theory was inspired by his interaction with Richard Feynman.

And of course we cannot forget Milo Wolff's "Quantum Matter" Site:

And his new book "Schroedinger's Universe":

The advent of the quantum theory in the years 1920-1930 brought with it the possibility of understanding the origin of consciousness. During the last decade, research on the mysterious Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) effect and "tangled quantum states" has created an added appeal that there may be a connection between consciousness and 'tangled state' quantum phenomena. This could be true. There is a phrase often spoken in hindsight after a new scientific advance, "Nature did it first!" This fact of nature suggests that the human brain during evolution, could have made use of this unique and mysterious means of communication. Now, physics research of the last five years has gone a step further and delineated the origin of quantum waves and the EPR effect (Wolff,1990-1998). They are no longer mysterious but a consequence of the matter wave structure of charged particles, particularly the electron-positron. This reality of communication in Nature, which we cannot directly sense, has implications for religious and philosophical thought....
--Milo Wolff.

This is a very important thread, but alas, like many before, it will remain largely ignored.

I know of a certain person high in the ranks of the academia who once was vehemently opposed to Dr. Wolff's theory. They are not any longer.

How would one go about proving this theory?

It fits, it certainly fits... but I can't think for the life of me a way to prove this one over other theories on the structure of matter.

I'm definitely bookmarking that though. It's a sound theory... as are many.

Definitely worthy of being added to the educational curriculum as a current alternative theory.

No theory can be completely proven. A theory that we may currently think as proven my just be a very good analogy until some new discovery begins to cause doubt.

I think the experimental work of Caver Mead and Akira Tonomura has gone a long way toward validating this theory. It's Amazing to think that something so simple has been right under our noses all this time. WSM theory not only explains all the fundimental forces of nature, but also solves all the paradoxes. It has been shown that collective electrodynamics can be used to calculate results in microelectronics much more precise than using Maxwell's equations. All of this is way to much of a coincidence than to be just another fly by night theory.

Ok, I will try this again,

A little more about Carver Mead:

In relation to his 2002 award with the National Medal of Technology, his biography at a webpage of the Technology Administration of the United States government says:

Carver Mead is a key pioneer of modern microelectronics. His 40-year academic and industry career touches all aspects of microelectronics, from spearheading the development of tools and techniques for modern integrated circuit design, to laying the foundation for fabless semiconductor companies, to catalyzing the electronic design automation field, to training generations of engineers, to founding more than twenty companies, including Actel Corporation, Silicon Compilers, Synaptics, and Sonic Innovations.

Carver's career is characterized by an endless string of "firsts." He built the first GaAs MESFET, a device that is today a mainstay of wireless electronics. He was the first to use a physics-based analysis to predict a lower limit to transistor size. His predictions, along with the notions of scalability that came with them, were instrumental in setting the industry on its path toward submicrometre technology. He was the first to predict millions of transistors on a chip, and, on the basis of these predictions, he developed the first techniques for designing big, complex microchips. He taught the world's first VLSI design course. He created the first software compilation of a silicon chip.

Halfway through his career he switched direction, teaming with Professor John Hopfield and Nobelist Richard Feynman to study how animal brains compute. The trio catalyzed three fields: Neural Networks, Neuromorphic Engineering, and Physics of Computation. Carver created the first neurally inspired chips, including the silicon retina and chips that learn from experience, and founded the first companies to use these technologies: Synaptics, and Foveon, Inc., a Santa Clara, California company developing CMOS image sensor/processing chips (for use in e.g. digital photography)." --wikipedia

Not so simple really lol not child understanding simple anyways if you get to the meat of the theory and im not saying one way or the other if this theory is any better than the tons of other theories out there, however this theory seems to have the best explanation for duality, but lacks in the explanation of decoherance and wave function collapse I also didnt find any real better explanation of entanglement either. Quantum entanglement is probably the strangest (even more so than m-theory imo) and most difficult to explain aspects left to particle physics not that we are actually close to solving it all by any means.

thank you!!!! TONS of well-explained info on your thread and link, and I confess I've only wandered through the first six pages......

I was hoping for a unification of c and g....... it's SO long overdue, and I begin to wonder if it can be done in our lifetimes. I think we might have to change our ideas about light propagation to include a time in the formation of time and space where light propagated much slower than today, and is gradually increasing in velocity -- miniscule increments in the 4-5 angstrom range.

Of course, that's just one whackamole's opinion. NEVERmind.

I found a couple of cool videos. Apperently similar research is being conducted in Russia.

It's not falsifiable and if it is not then it is not a theory. No you cannot prove something completely but you can disprove something completely.

posted on Oct, 3 2008 @ 02:27 AM

Other than your non-falsifiable claim, can you give something more substantial that is wrong with the theory? So much has been written about
WSM's falsifiablity. All one has to do is read the material.

Here are a few of WSM's predictions. There are many more. Not to mention that WSM applies Occam's razor better than any other. Not to mention all the experimental work done by Carver Mead.

1. Heisenberg Uncertainty principle.

2. Mach's Principle.

3. The size of our observable universe within infinite Space (thus the motion of distant galaxies will behave as if they are surrounded by matter).

4. Curvature of the space-time continuum in Einstein's general relativity.

5. That light is due to resonant coupling - and thus is discrete. i.e. The electron can only exist in discrete wave functions thus discrete energy states in an atom or molecule.

6. That the de Broglie wave is a phase wave with high velocity for low relative motion, where de Broglie phase wave has velocity c^2 / relative velocity. This provides a simple explanation for non-locality as found in the EPR experiment.
