Synopsis

"Because the theories of Special and General Relativity and the standard model for the physics of subatomic particles seem extremely intricate, artificial, irrational, and contradictory and irreconcilable between themselves; I consider it a moral obligation and an act of loyalty with regard to physics and towards myself to submit this work for the consideration and analysis by physicists? and lay persons, as a seminal contribution to the advancement of physics in general, this work being an epistemological dissertation based on a pragmatic, discovery-helping process of reasoning and deduction, rather than a technical discussion with the mathematical detail and precision usually set forth in the presentation of modern physics. The logical answers found for all the theoretical questions and doubts I raised for myself concerning those two important areas of modern physics are those I explain in this work to share them with my dear readers, being sure that its conceptual presentation will open up for them, as with me, new paths to arrive at an integral knowledge and understanding of physics; my main motivation and purpose being to have physics again placed under the aegis of logic, common sense and conceptual rigor in accordance with clear philosophical and epistemological basic rules, trying to avoid the ad-hoc building of geometrical and mathematical nirvanas in order to explain that which can be explained rationally and with simple words" Enrique Morales-Riveira October 2009 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With solid scientific research, Rebuilding Modern Physics offers a new approach to physics, one which will clarify the dark, mysterious, intricate, and confusing areas of modern physics. Under the steady hand of Enrique Morales-Riveira, physics again becomes the realm of reason, logic, and reality. In this epistemological discourse, Morales-Riveira shows how Minkowski?s space-time, the theories of Special and General Relativity, the standard model for the physics of fundamental particles, and the current cosmological theories are based on irrational ideas and misleading experiments. This has caused modern physics to fatally become a kind of unrealistic science where common sense and physical reality do not have any place whatsoever. This is leading modern physics to an ominous dead-end street and preventing its climb to the next platform. His discussions include: ? Why it is imperative to urgently abandon the arbitrary and unnatural conception of Minkowski?s space-time in modern physics. ? How natural space-time gives back to physics a lost symmetry, inner interdependence, unification, coherence, rationality, and simplicity. ? Reinterpretation of Newton?s Theory of Universal Gravitation. Though controversial, Rebuilding Modern Physics marks an inflexion point in the science of physics for future generations of physicists avid to unveil the truths behind time, space, energy, and matter.
