A History of the Aether in Physical Theory: Part V
The State of Modern Physics: Relativity and Quantum Theory
A Summary of the Main Tenets of Modern Physics:
The nature of light
: light as half photon and half transverse wave of emptiness
(a wave of a mediumless medium: the vacuum of space).
The nature of matter
: matter as half particle and half probability wave
definite position and velocity in space and time
principle and statistical nature of measurement).
Matter (electrons) can interfere with themselves, like waves do (double-slit
4 dimensions and beyon
Relativistic, not real, length contraction and time dilation
Matterless "forces" that act instantly over a distance through the vacuum (force of
gravity, and electromagnetic, weak and strong forces).
"Fields" that are neither space nor matter but affect the latter (electromagnetic and
Origin of the Universe
The universe began with a Big Bang, where all matter was infinitely condensed. The
universe is expanding.

A Question of Logic
How can something be two things at one time?
How can a wave, a disturbance of a medium, be a wave of emptiness?
How can matter exist statically with no definite position in space or time?
How can the length of an object depend on the observer?
How can the duration of time depend on the observer?
How can a particle interfere with itself?
What exactly is a force?
What exactly is a field?
How can matter, which collides with itself, be infinitely condensed into a point of space?
Modern Physicists Answer:
ho cares how you conceive of the physical phenomena as long as the math works.
Math--the equations--not the physical world, are the reality!
The Conceptual Vacuum of Modern Physics would like to say "Shut Up and Calculate!"
