Question
Can you offer the layman an extremely simplified summary of what scalars are, how theyrelate to Maxwell's equations, unified field theory, and the
limitations of currently accepted quantumphysics, relativity theory, and electromagnetics?
A:
Whew! You've asked for a complete explanation of how to unify the three major disciplines of physics, specify what's wrong with the three present
versions of those disciplines that has preventedtheir unification, and how this was in Maxwell's original quaternion equations (some 200 of whichare
actually his theory, not the pale four vector equations written by Heaviside and Gibbs). You alsoasked for an explanation of scalars versus vectors,
and how the present vector analysis (of Heavisideand Gibbs) misses the boat with respect to structured scalars. And you've asked me to do it simply,
inlayman's terms. To say that that's a tall order is the understatement of the decade!
No, not really. The difference between a scalar and a vector is trivial:
Scalars are quantities that have magnitude only; they are independent of direction. Vectors have both magnitude and direction
0.8 is a scalar v[0.3, 13, 1.4] is a vector. That's it. Elementary linear algebra. No need to try and bombard the interviewer with jargon in an
attempt to duck a simple and direct question. Did that take 10 years to explain? Only if explaining it to a rock.
Furthermore, there is no such thing as a "scalar wave", such a term doesn't make sense in the slightest. Sticking two sciencey-sounding words together
does not mean one knows what one is talking about. All Bearden is doing is stringing together jargon terms into nonsensical sentences and preying on
the reader's ignorance of what such terms actually mean so that is come across like he's making sense and knows what he's talking about. He's not and
he doesn't, not in the slightest.
Deny ignorance and all that.
