On the Nature of the Universe

Cube of Theoretical Physics

The Universe

By Scott Anfield

For many years, people have sought to discover a unified field theory which explains all the phenomena in the Universe, from the smallest particles to the galaxies and even the structure of the universe itself.  The theory which I propose encompasses all of these.

This theory is concerned with the fact that all things come in threes, of which there are numerous examples (see Appendix). The whole of anything is comprised of 3 parts. All 3 of these parts have something in common, which gives the appearance of a whole. The 3 parts are divided into a ratio of 1:2, of which two are the same as each other in some respect and one is different. Herein lays the stability of this theory, as it must always be two of the same and one different because when reversed, the single part would have nothing to be the same as. However, all 3 parts are interlinking with each other. Each part has something in common with every other part and they both have a difference with the other part. For example, parts one, two and three can be shown as A, B and C respectively.

  • A and B have a common link with each other, but both different from C
  • A and C have a common link with each other, but both different from B
  • B and C have a common link with each other, but both different from A.

I have named this tri-interconnectivity

The parts of the whole 3 do not have to be physical objects. They can be thoughts, feelings, emotions, words and forces to name a few. They can also be a mixture of these things.

Amongst the multitude of things that come in threes, consider the many equations of physics which are seen as triangles e.g. speed, distance, time. These equations are numerous and explain a vast array of phenomena on their own.

Phenomena that appear in numbers that cannot be divided by 3 can also be explained by this theory. For example, 5 is 2:1:2. As you can see, the ratio of 2:1 doesn’t change, only that two parts can be further divided into two further sub-parts whilst the other part remains with only one part. Things that appear on the surface to be duos are really only 2 parts of the whole 3, the part which we don’t see immediately is the third, different, part. For example, up and down appear as opposites- duos- which they are, but they both have a golden mean of middle. The same is true for left and right and every other opposite.

People have long questioned ‘When did the Universe begin?’ and ‘When will it end?’ This theory answers both these questions with one simple explanation: the matter in the Universe is in constant rotation. Think of matter moving along a line. When the two ends of the line are joined, they make a circle that the matter rotates in, a torus shape (which I will explain later). I propose that the place at which the two ends ‘meet’ is a black hole and a white hole. Newton’s third law states that there is an equal and opposite reaction for everything and we know that black holes exist so theoretically, white holes must exist too. I propose that matter is drawn into the black hole and ejected out of the white hole as anti-matter. As the anti-matter travels around the torus, it enters the black hole and is ejected as matter, and the cycle repeats. I propose that singularities cannot exist in black holes, because if there is a region in space that is infinitely dense, then it would ‘suck’ absolutely everything in the Universe into it. Instead, I believe that extremely dense places do exist, but just not to the point where all the Laws of Nature collapse. This is because they are controlled by the Laws, not a controller of them. There are 3 states of time; past, present and future. In this time loop theory, the matter travelling in the loop is in the present. The matter is travelling towards the future and away from the past. The place at which the black and white holes ‘meet’, time is bent in such a way as to join the past and the future. The matter from the future effectively becomes anti-matter from the past and vice versa. This also explains what scientists have been detecting as the ‘big bang’. There may not have been a ‘big bang’ as such from where everything came, but multiple big bangs as the anti-matter is transformed into matter and propelled around the torus. The answer to the questions therefore is; there has never been a start or an end to the universe, as it keeps moving and transforming. Therefore, there is a finite amount of energy and matter in the Universe, but the Universe itself is infinite. The energy and matter are the two which are the same but the Universe is different, as it is infinite because of its looping mechanism.

The next area of interest is spirals which occur in galaxies, planets and atoms. Think of a balancing toy with weights in the ratio 1:2 on Earth. If you bring the heavier mass to the top and let it go, it moves down towards the bottom and then it continues its momentum towards the top and the cycle starts again. On Earth, this motion will eventually cease because of air resistance but in space, according to Newton’s first law and Newtonian mechanics this motion could continue infinitely. All that is needed to cause this motion is an object, however small, to have a ratio of 1:2, where one mass is greater than the other. A possible reason for the fact that all matter is spinning at some level is that as matter is expulsed by the white hole, the heavier part of the atom moves forward faster than the lighter part e.g. in hydrogen the proton moves faster than the electron causing it to spin.

As there are more positive charges in atoms than negative ones, in the ratio 2:1, there is a link between the smallest particles and the largest structures of the universe. All matter in the universe is made from atoms, of which there are 3 components: electrons, protons and neutrons. Look at the table of elementary particles and the colour charge of quarks and you will see many 3 elements to it. A neutron consists of one up quark and two down quarks (2:1). There are three types of weak interaction vertices. Two of them involve charged bosons (charged current interactions) and one is a neutral boson (neutral current interaction). The W and Z bosons also fit the three theory, with their differing charges.

All matter is made from atoms and all atoms possess an electron. All spinning electrons possess a magnetic field. From research, we know that an object dropped at the poles falls to earth faster than an object falling at the equator and also time passes faster the further away you are from the Earth’s surface. This is because gravity and magnetism are weaker above the equator (bipolarity of the Earth). It follows that in space, the larger the mass of an object, the more atoms it has, therefore the stronger the magnetic field. This electromagnetic field created by all atoms can either attract or repel other atoms from different bodies. Light, made from photons, can be attracted or repelled by this electromagnetic field. I propose that the Sun’s electromagnetic field causes the light from the stars to bend, not its gravitational pull. The weakening of light from highly attractive stars can be explained by the fact that photons are drawn to the stars magnetic field, whilst the waves continue, giving the distortionate effect of bending. The Einstein ring, I believe, is light bending around at equal proportions according to the attractive force exerted by the black hole.

You may believe that there are four fundamental forces; gravity, electromagnetism and the strong and weak nuclear forces. As you may have already guessed, if you combine the latter two into one nuclear force which can be further divided into strong and weak, then you have 3 fundamental forces, just as electricity and magnetism are combined. From this we can see, as before, that it is really 5 different forces in the ratio of 1:2. The single force, 3, is explained in the following paragraphs.
As mentioned before, I believe that the Universe is a torus shape. We know that magnetic levitation can occur in seemingly non-magnetic objects due to the very weak level of molecular magnetism, caused by the atoms. In a magnetic field, as demonstrated at the Nijmegen High Field Magnet Laboratory, water forms a spherical shape as it would do in space. I propose that the planets are spheroid in shape because of this effect and the torus generates a magnetic field inside the space of the Universe which causes the planets to be shaped like this, similar to a tokamak. Each body is a slightly oblate spheroid, because it is in rotation whereas stars, like the Sun, are more spherical. I propose that objects do are not ‘held’ to the Earth by gravity, but by magnetism.
I propose that magnetism is gravity, and the larger the mass of an object, the greater the magnetic force it exerts. Both the nuclear forces have attractive and repulsive forces. Imagine the weak nuclear force as being a weak magnetic field (+1) and the strong nuclear force as a strong magnetic field (+2). A singular nuclear force therefore would have (+3), before it is split up into its respective ratios. I finally propose that all the fundamental forces are indeed different levels of magnetism.

I do not consider myself a scientist or mathematician so the equation I can best think of to describe the three theory is:

a = (b + (b + b))

However, on further inspection, this equation suggests that b = 0.33 recurring, which does not make a a whole. Therefore one b, the one that is different, has to be 0.34. This slight difference shows how it is different from the other two, but only marginally. If you have noticed that 2 are the same, then you can work out what the other different one is, and calculate the whole.

I believe that if this theory is true, it is not the end of science, but a new beginning and I am sure that it will open up numerous possibilities for every field of investigation.
