I have recently co-authored a book about a new method of quantifying
physics. This method is of particular interest to neuroscientists as it
quantifies consciousness as a quantum process. I'm including the press
release for the book below:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Quantum AetherDynamics Institute Publishes Secrets of the Aether
New book rewrites modern physics through Aether theory
ALMA, Ill., Dec 23, 2004 - Two amateur physicists have done what has eluded
plenty of academic types: They have learned everything-in theory. More
specifically, David Thomson and Jim D. Bourassa, founders of the Quantum
AetherDynamics Institute (QADI, http://www.quantumaetherdynamics.com), have
published a testable Theory of Everything in their new book, Secrets of the
Aether, QADI Press, available at http://www.16pi2.com/book.htm).
Based on Thomsons' Aether Physics Model, Secrets of the Aether turns
conventional physics on its ear to introduce the first mathematically
correct Unified Force Theory in modern science, along with explanations of
dark matter, how physical matter interacts with consciousness, and more.
In getting to this point, the authors realized early on that modern physics
was riddled with inaccuracies-chief among them the denial of the existence
of a distributed non-physical medium permeating the entire universe and
endowing space with measurable physical properties, known historically as
"There is a reason the Unified Force Theory has not been previously
discovered," said Thomson, Science Director of QADI. "There are some key
errors in modern physics, which have either gone undetected or intentionally
Secrets of the Aether transforms the Aether from a nineteenth-century
mystery to a modern explanation for the phenomena of the universe. "Now that
we have exact measurements of certain constants, we can deduce that the
Aether is not made from some kind of physically detectable particle, but
from non-physical Aether units of 2 spin rotating magnetic field," Thomson
explained. "Aether units can also be expressed as Coulomb's constant times
16 pi squared."
Put another way, time and space come together in the Aether. "Using the
principles of reductionism, our model shows the forces are unified by an
extremely simple set of general laws explainable by the fabric of space-time
itself, which is a dynamic, quantum-scale Aether," said Bourassa, Executive
Director of QADI.
The authors admit their concept may irk some scientists. Others, however,
see Thomson's and Bourassa's work as a springboard to further advances in
such fields as nanotechnology, neuroscience, electrodynamics and chemistry.
"The highly original ideas formulated in this work are clearly the fruits of
many years of serious study and reflection," wrote Rochester Institute of
Technology physics professor V.V. Raman, Ph.D. "We live in an age in which
values, worldviews, and politics are changing at unmanageably fast rates.
Each day brings not only fresh and unexpected news, but also revolutionary
ideas and perspectives whose impacts no one can foresee. I see this book in
this context. Not everyone will agree or accept everything stated in this
book. But the book certainly deserves careful attention before passing
judgment on it."
Clearly, the timing of the book could not be better as the United Nations
declared 2005 as the Year of Physics, and it is the 100th anniversary of
Albert Einstein's Special Relativity Theory.
