I was afraid that the author was going to write "God did it", but this is actually a serious effort to present an alternative, scientifically-derived view of the universe and its forces that differs markedly from our current Standard Theory.
Does he succeed?
Well, that is the fun of the book.
He "must" be wrong, but WHY is he wrong?
You'll come up with easy "gotchas", but he's a step ahead of you.
Certainly the book does any serious reader a good service by assembling in one place the irreducible problems of our current Standard Theory. Of course scientists know these problems, but here they are assembled clearly and sharply demonstrated; a useful antidote to those of some scientific exposure who are too likely to think "We know the answers to most things". We don't, and professional scientists know we don't. Our models, of gravity, of energy, are that: models, and there are flaws in the models.
Another interesting feature of the book is the presentation of enough scientific hisory to see clearly the assumptions, and possible errors, made in forming our Standard Model.
Does this mean that the author's theory is right, and the Standard Theory is "wrong"?
It means that both are models of reality, and like any model, the truth is to be found only through empirical testing.
The book is worth reading, even though the ideas in it are iconoclastic; perhaps BECAUSE they are iconoclastic. It took guts to write this book and present it as a scientific text. If you are scientifically educated, the book WILL make you think (once you get past the initial desire to simply dismiss it with a wave of the hand).Read more ›
A physicist friend of mine used to say nobody knows what electricity is. His integrity as a physicist was showing. He realized science didn't know everything, and he was always looking for answers to what lay in the gaps, and when I read the explanations in this book I knew he was right! I wish he were still alive to see this book.
Although I have a basic understanding of physics, I once asked a physicist at the Science Congress in Denver what kind of class to take to familiarize myself with the latest and more advanced concepts in physics. He advised that I should look for a good teacher, because a good teacher would know they only had one shot to interest students or risk losing them forever. Mark McCutcheon is the teacher I was looking for, and he had only one shot at me, because if this hadn't come together logically and been so interesting I would have wandered away halfway through and lost interest in physics. But this book made more and more sense as I read, showing that every aspect of physics is based on the same new principle that finally explains gravity, making for a very logical, seamless progression ... no odd, special laws or exceptions had to be constructed to account for things that didn't fit, because everything just fits.Read more ›
Currently the standard theory, representing the opinion of the majority of researches from various disciplines, has all the hallmarks of a theory in collapse. The latest information from the Chandra deep field infa-red and X-ray survey (showing complete stars and galaxies at extreme distances have a quite normal stellar population), the Sloan Digital Sky high definition galaxy survey (showing a pattern that is not indicative of current theory), gravitational anomalies from orbital data receives by deep space probes, the necessity for introducing unreal amounts of dark matter and energy to account for galactic orbital characteristics, the failure to find evidence of gravitational particles or mediators at CERN, tends to confirm this state of affairs.
With the arrival of McCutcheon's book the 'Final theory' I feel at last I have found a solid theory realistically built on simple basic principles from the ground up. McCutcheon, in an almost kindly way, leads us gently to inescapable conclusions. His clear cut, precise and rational explanations are beautiful to follow. So much so it is quite clear that the single principle elucidated by McCutcheon and from which he draws the understanding of all physical phenomena, from the atom to the galaxy and everything in-between, must surely replace our current thinking.Read more ›

I find that theories are a waste of time. One should get actual facts and proof and if they do not know how to do that perhaps they should be quiet! Read morePublished 16 months ago by John R. Fernandes
