It is quite unfortunate that the physics of Dewey B. Larson are unknown to most people around the world. However, that is not strange at all. DBL's
physics or Reciprocal System of physical theory
is basically an explanation of everything presumably explained and unexplained - all observable
phenomena in the universe, the tiny and the huge. If DBL is right, a lot of students and professors will be out of jobs as this physics is quite
simple relative to the one we have today (e.g. String theory and Unified Field theory) and can be taught in schools.
Let's start by introducing the theory :
The Reciprocal System of physical theory, a theoretical framework, claimed to be capable of explaining all physical phenomena from subatomic particles
to galactic clusters. In this general physical theory space and time are simply the two reciprocal aspects of the sole constituent of the universe –
motion. Unique aspects of the theory are that both matter and energy are represented mathematically as greater than or less than unity (t/s or s/t),
and three dimensions of time, reciprocals of the three dimensions of space. All physical phenomena are reduced to space-time terms. This theory is not
supported by evidence or mainstream science.
The philosopher Samuel Alexander asked the question "How far a science of order could be founded on this bare conception of ordered parts of
Space-Time I do not know. ..." but Larson was inspired to make it his life's major work to attempt to find out. Larson's Reciprocal System is the
first truly unified theory and the first general theory. From just two general postulates, Larson has derived an all-embracing theoretical universe,
answering simply and reasonably such questions as:
What is the fundamental component of the universe?
Why is the universe expanding?
Why does light behave sometimes as a particle and sometimes as a wave?
How do electrons and positrons annihilate one another to produce photons?
What holds the "parts" of an atom together?
What is the origin and nature of gravitation?
What is the origin of supernovae, white dwarfs, red giants, pulsars, and solar systems?
What is the connection between exploding galaxies and quasars?
What is the origin of the cosmic rays?
Is the universe finite or infinite?
Is the universe in a steady-state, or is it evolving?
The first of the two Fundamental Postulates of the Reciprocal System from which Larson derives every aspect of the physical universe is:
“The physical universe is composed entirely of one component, motion, existing in three dimensions, in discrete units, and with two reciprocal
aspects, space and time.”1 The primary implication of the Postulate is that the properties of either space or time are the properties of both space
and time, except that space and time are reciprocally related as motion. This means, inter alia, that space is a progression like time is, and that
time is three-dimensional. While the space progression is observable as the recession of distance galaxies, the three-dimensionality of time is not so
Failures of Current Science
We will briefly trace some of the important short-comings of the prevalent world-view of the modern science-which, of course, does not mean to
deny the fact of its impressive achievements.
The nuclear atom and the electronic structure of matter. From the fact that in certain atomic reactions, like radioactivity, beta rays (electrons)
were found among the products, it is concluded that electrons are constituents of atoms. But the equally probable alternative of the electrons coming
into existence during the process is overlooked. For example, in atomic disintegration photons are also found in the products. However, the previous
logic is not applied here: the photons are not taken to be parts of the atoms in the manner in which the electrons are supposed to be.
Space and Time
The author points out that space and time are the most fundamental concepts, the correct understanding of whose nature and characteristics should
precede any theoretical development. Basing solely on what is revealed in direct observation—and not on any interpretation—the following can be
said of them as being true in the local environment: Space is three-dimensional, homogeneous, and isotropic. Time progresses uniformly and (perhaps
only locally) unidirectionally. The scalar relation between space and time is reciprocal (that is, speed = space / time), and this relation
constitutes motion. (NL, page 35) He takes pains to clarify the meaning of 'dimension' and that time has no dimension in space. "...time enters into
the mathematics of the physical processes... as a scalar quantity. From this the physicists have jumped to the conclusion that time is
one-dimensional. The point that the physicists have overlooked is that 'direction' in the context of physical processes which are represented by
vectorial equations in present day physics always means 'direction in space'." (NL, page 33) Then he reminds us that, "...no matter how many
dimensions it may have, time has no direction in space... There is nothing in the role which time plays in the equations of motion to indicate
specifically that time has more than one dimension. But a careful consideration... does not show that the present day assumption that we know time to
be one-dimensional is completely unfounded..." (NL, p 35) Then he makes the important assumption that the relation which we find in the region
accessible to observation also holds good in the inaccessible region of the universe. The first, and the most important, conclusion that can be drawn
now from the extrapolated relation is that ,"...inasmuch as this specifies the existence of a general reciprocal relation between space and time,
there must be complete scalar symmetry between these two entities." (NL, page 61) Hence he calls his theory the Reciprocal System. Basing on further
observational trends, on the existence of discrete quanta, two postulates are arrived at, from which and which alone the entire theory is developed:
First Fundamental Postulate: The physical universe is composed entirely of one component, motion, existing in three dimensions, in discrete units, and
with two reciprocal aspects, space and time. (Cf. SD, ii, p.260; ML, p341) Second Fundamental Postulate: The physical universe conforms to the
relations of ordinary commutative mathematics, its primary magnitudes are absolute and its geometry is Euclidean (NBM, page 30). The validity of these
postulates is established by comparing the logical inferences drawn from them with actual facts observed in nature. The domain of the predictions
ranges from the heart of the atom to the farthest reaches of the universe and not one single case of discrepancy with facts seems to be present while
there is much light thrown on phenomena that have so far not yielded to the present day science. In view of the symmetry between space and time, it
turns out that any property of one of these is also the property of the other. More specifically, this leads us to the conclusions that time is also
three-dimensional and that space too progresses like time....
An important consequence of the progression of space-time is that unit speed, one unit of space per unit of time, is the condition of rest in the
physical universe. Thus, unit speed and not zero is the datum level from which all physical manifestation starts. In other words, unity is Nature's
zero-point. This, I think, is a most remarkable discovery. Here we should be careful not to fall prey to, what A.N. Whitehead used to call, 'the
fallacy of simple location', which is to imagine, as the prevalent world view of science does, that material particles are situated in (or superadded
to) a setting of space and time; as though matter is embedded in a receptacle of four-dimensional space-time. Larson points out that space and time
"...cannot constitute a setting or background for motion, because motion is not a background for itself. Everywhere in a universe of motion, space and
time are the two reciprocal aspects of that motion, and they have no other significance anywhere." (QP, page 11) this is where previous thinkers like
Descartes, Eddington and Hobbes, who endeavored to develop a general theory on the basis of the motion concept have failed by not recognizing that in
a universe of motion, space and time cannot have independent definitions....
The Conjugate Universe
We have seen that the material atoms and subatomic particles are vibratory time units rotating in space. Now, the symmetry and reciprocity between
the properties of space and time postulated in the Reciprocal System thereby also require the existence of matter whose atoms are vibratory space
units rotating in time, somewhere in the universe. Larson calls these structures which are exactly like the material atoms except that the roles of
space and time are interchanged, the "cosmic atoms" (c-atoms), and cosmic atoms collectively as "Cosmic matter" (c-matter). This answers to what is
conventionally referred to as anti-matter by scientists (of course, with a difference: anti-matter, in this view, is not an additive inverse but the
multiplicative inverse of matter).
The Grand Cycle of the Universe
Among other things, with the help of this concept of the conjugate sector of the universe, Larson explains how the universe always remains the
same though always changing and evolving; a truth, once again, of the occult sciences. Diffuse intergalactic nebulae and matter coalesce under the
influence of gravity, form stars; stars aggregate into star clusters and clusters into small galaxies. These galaxies recede from each other due to
the outward progression of space-time. The galaxies cannibalize smaller galaxies and become larger ones, which eventually undergo disintegration on
reaching the upper stability limit of matter, ejecting part of the matter into the cosmic sector. In the cosmic sector, a similar sequence of events
happen (with the roles of space and time interchanged, of course) and eventually the c-matter ejected from the c-galaxies recedes outward in time and
enters our material sector at random locations and starts the material half of the evolutionary cycle as diffuse intergalactic nebulae and dust. Thus,
on the whole, the universe remains the same, though each half (the material and the cosmic) continually evolves. The material sector, expanding in
space, evolves in time. The cosmic sector, on the other hand, expanding in time, evolves in space. Further, the end of evolution in one sector marks
the beginning of evolution in the other sector, cyclically, reminding us of the Evolutionary Spiral. It is a "steady-state" universe but without the
necessity to break the conservation laws unlike the Hoyle-Narlikar's steady-state model. From another point of view, it is an oscillating universe:
but the oscillation is not the banal expansion-contraction in space as envisaged by the cosmologists or the exoteric students of occultism. It is an
oscillation between space and time—an oscillation that is non-reversing. The expansion toward infinite space in one sector completely
counterbalances the expansion toward infinite time in the other sector (in view of the reciprocal relation between them) and on the grand scale of the
dual-sector universe we have the entire physical manifestation on the one hand, and NOTHING on the other, on equal footing!....
Conclusion of the Article
Link to the whole article
Link to DBL works
We have attempted to present some of the important contributions of the Reciprocal System to the understanding of the physical universe starting
from a new paradigm—the concept of a universe of motion, in place of the current one of a universe of matter embedded in a framework of space and
time. The examples cited here are expected to convey a broad-enough scope of the theoretical system and establish that a prima facie case exists for a
general theory. It is only fair to record that some of the more esoteric aspects of the Theory, like multi-dimensional motion, the scalar regions of
the universe, etc., have entirely to be omitted for pedagogic reasons. Mention must also be made of the fact that Larson finds the basic constituent
of the universe according to the new paradigm, namely, to be scalar motion. Even though the existence of this kind of motion has been recognized, it
has played a minor and insignificant role in physical theory hitherto. So Larson carries out a full-scale investigation of the properties and
possibilities of scalar motion and discovers that this type of motion plays the central role in the drama of physical phenomena. He finds, for
example, that some of the unexplained physical facts are really the unfamiliar features of certain types of scalar motion. For instance, all the
observed characteristics of the gravitational field—like the instantaneous action, the lack of shielding effect, equality of the inertial and the
gravitational mass, etc.—come out logically from the properties of scalar motion of a particular type. There is no need to resort to ad hoc
assumptions like the curving of space-time and the finite speed of propagation of the gravitational influence, which have absolutely no observational
support. Consequently, the Reciprocal System is free from all singularities—like black holes, cosmic strings, and the like—that plague
conventional astronomy theory. Indeed, the occurrence of these singularities indicates a defective theory. Before the advent of the Reciprocal System,
there has been no theory that truly depicted the facts about gravitation. Therefore, theories not fitting the facts have been allowed to pass off, and
stupendous amount of research has been side-tracked. The real reason for omitting the description of some of the significant features of the
Reciprocal system alluded to in the above paragraph from this introductory Article is—as has been hinted at the outset—no matter how simple and
logical the new conclusions are from the viewpoint of the new paradigm, since one is habituated to the old paradigm, some of them might look nothing
short of preposterous. Having invested one's entire professional career in the existing paradigm, one's mind does not take kindly to the prospect of a
basic paradigm change. The first few contacts are the most difficult ones, as Kuhn points out. One would not be inclined even to pay attention to the
new conclusions, much less evaluate them on their own merit. It has been found wise to discuss first those features that could be assimilated easily
on a first encounter.
Connection with "The Ra Material"
It is interesting to mention that in the Ra Material or Law of One, when asked, Ra states :
of One link
Questioner: Speaking of the rapid change that occurred in the physical vehicle from second to third density: this occurred, you said, in
approximately a generation and a half. Body hair was lost and there were structural changes. I am aware of the physics of Dewey B. Larson, who states
that all is motion or vibration. Am I correct in assuming that the basic vibration that makes up the physical world changes, thus creating a different
set of parameters, shall I say, in this short period of time between density changes allowing for the new type of being? Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. Category: Earth History: Second Density Harvest
Questioner: Is the physics of Dewey Larson correct?
Ra: I am Ra. The physics of sound vibrational complex, Dewey, is a correct system as far as it is able to go. There are those things which are not
included in this system. However, those coming after this particular entity, using the basic concepts of vibration and the study of vibrational
distortions, will begin to understand that which you know as gravity and those things you consider as “n” dimensions. These things are necessary
to be included in a more universal, shall we say, physical theory. Category: Science: Physics
I am not trying to advocate the reality of the Ra Material but one has to ask himself/herself whether it is real - at least the people that are open
minded. And i do not know but the scope of the information is staggering.
So i see three possibilities about The Law of One :
1) The Ra material is an elaborate hoax. The hoax is incredibely elaborate, because the sheer mass of detail involved. It was all done with the intent
to hoodwink people for whatever purpose.
2)The Ra material came from Carla's unconscious mind. If this is true, Carla's a pretty amazing individual, because the material is very detailed, and
touches upon so many different areas.
3)The Ra material is true. There really is a Ra entity and it did channel through Carla and the information conveyed was accurate, subject to our
Whether Law of one is a hoax or not is irrelevant to the reality of DBL's physics. Dewey B. Larson is totally non-mainstream and this fact alone makes
his work even more interesting.
I'd like to hear your opinions!!!!
