I had long had a problem with the modern view of physics-- that matter is both particle-like and wave-like at the same time; and with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle-- that we cannot know a particle's location when measuring its momentum, and vice versa. I assumed that my insufficient training and knowledge was the cause of my lack of understanding. And yet no less a figure than Einstein also disagreed with the interpretations of the Copenhagen Group and Heisenberg. "God," he said, "does not play dice with the universe."
This book, based on the earlier works of Einstein, Schrodinger, and others, shows that matter is composed not of particles, nor a wave/particle duality, but only of waves. Further, Dr. Wolff describes this in a way that is (for me) rather unusual for scientific writing: he allows one to visualize this as a mental picture. To me, his explanation of matter is a much simpler one than that of Bohr, Heisenberg, and other physicists of the early 20th century. Following the principle of Occam's Razor, should we not choose the simpler of two compelling explanations?
Numerous questions remain to be answered, of course. But I have confidence that they will be, in the years to come.
One of the very best books, that has recently come out, is Dr. Milo Wolff's brand new book: Schrödinger's Universe.
I've now finished reading it and I predict that someday it will be ranked in importance right up there next to Newton's Principia.
Huygens -- famous for the first pendulum clock and wave theory of light -- admitted to Newton that the mathematical concept, in his Principia, was brilliant but Huygens complained to Newton that it didn't tell us why gravity and centrifugal force were happening.
Now, however, Schrödinger's Universe is finally showing us why.
Wheeler and Feynman tried to prove the electron was a standing wave but failed. Milo Wolff did it by proving the electron was a scalar, standing wave.
I agree with the premise set forth in Milo Wolff's outstanding, new book that this is indeed a scalar, standing wave, resonance universe that gives us the answer as to why we have all of our NATURAL LAWS.
Dr. Wolff, by the way, was one of the few top mathematical physicists on the team that got us to the moon.
Dr. Milo Wolff has mathematically proven this main concept in his brilliant book: All electrons give and receive tiny bits of energy to and from each other, from as far away as the Hubble limit, and they do this basically (in all directions) in a scalar manner. Milo has shown us conclusively that electrons are standing waves that keep reproducing themselves from electrons in their surroundings. Wolff has thereby shown us why this element of reproduction is so inherent to everything in our universe.Read more ›
This book, in layman's terms, proposes an elegant, simple explanation for why physics has had to contort and struggle to explain a series of observations that don't fit the idea that matter is made up of particles: there is no particle. Eliminate this one tenet of faith, and the paradoxes and uncertainty principles blow-away, leaving a vision that "clicks together".
In this clear-eyed book, Wolff is not the first to suggest there is no particle as such, but he is the first (as far as I know) to provide the specific theoretical framework and fully develop this idea. What he does do is show that the theories conform with observations and theories proposed by non-fringe science such as Erwin Schrodinger and Einstein. These theories are explained in terms that are understandable, and don't delve into technobabble.
Instead, the book uses stories, wit and crisp writing to make the case that we are keeping a death-grip on the "particle" idea simply because it is a received assumption of Western Science handed down from Aristotle.Read more ›
