On the other hand, it's more likely that your so-called theory
has been ignored because it doesn't say anything. If I ask you
to use your theory to calculate some quantitiy needed for experiments
commonly performed in accelerators, will you go away if you have
no idea how to do it? I didn't think so.

Rock on Bilge!!! You just described String Theory PERFECTLY!!!!

What seems strange to me is the millions upon millions of tax & tuition
dollars (student loans) String Theorists get for their postmodern
hoax/mythologies which are giving physics & physicisists a bad name.
They fabricate 10, 12, 17, n+1 dimensions, Brian Greene gets a PBS
entertainment contract to rehash Einstein's greatest hits with cool
videos and hip animations, while physicists build vast bureaucracies
where befuddled conformity is valued over logic, reason, and physics.

It is so obvious that the time dimension is moving relative to the
spatial dimensions that I almost can't stand it anymore.

I've been putting out teasers here and there, while keeping the
majority of the paper to myself. I first want to ascertain that my
ideas are utterly, wholey, and completely rejected by the physics
establishment, and that nobody anywhere has thought of this, before I
submit the paper to one of the antiquated, irrelevant journals that
have Einstein spinning in his grave.

I want to give all the experts their chance to take their best shot at
Moving Dimensions Theory, to rail against the logic and reason with all
their might, to rage against the simplicity with the convoluted
prejudices and arrogance that pervades so much of physics and academia
these days.

If anyone knows of any other theories that incorporate "Moving
Dimensions," or the time dimension expanding as a spherically-symmertic
wavefront, please let me know!!!

The time dimension is expanding at a rate of c relative to the three
spatial dimensions.

A photon represents matter fully rotated into the itme dimension,
orthogonal to the three spatial dimensions.

The space and time dimensions are quantized. The time dimension is
expanding in increments of the Planck length, at a rate of c relative
to the three spatial dimensions.

Also, if we trace the path of a photon on a space-time diagram, the
only way for a photon to remain stationary in space time is to move at
the speed of light, or to keep up with the expanding time dimension.
The null vector, which represents a vector of zero length in
space-time, can only imply zero movement through space-time. Even
though a photon moves through space at a velocity equal to C, it stays
stationary in space-time. Is it not strange at first that in order to
remain stationary in space time, a photon appears move at the speed of
light through space? This is only because the time dimension itself is
moving relative to space.

Einstein proclaimed that all objects travel through space-time at c.
Even though we perceive a ruler along the x axis to be stationary, it
is yet traveling through space-time at the fixed speed of c, implying
that time is moving through it. Rotate it towards the y axis, and its
projection upon the x axis shortens, yet it still appears to be
stationary, and it is still traveling through space-time at the rate
of c. Rotate it into the time dimension, and it's projection along
the x axis still shortens, but now it begins to move through the three
spatial dimensions, while maintaining the fixed speed of c through
space-time. Again, we see it move through the three spatial
dimensions as it is rotated into the time dimension because the time
dimension is moving relative to the three spatial dimensions.

As Brian Greene points out in the Appendix to Chapter 2 of The Elegant
Universe, we note that from the space-time position 4-vector
x=(ct,x1,x2,x3), we can create the velocity 4-vector u=dx/d(tau), where
tau is the proper time defined by
d(tau)^2=dt^2-c^-2(dx1^2+dx2^2+dx3^2). Then the "speed through
space-time" is the magnitude of the 4-vector u,
((c^2dt^2-dx^2)/(dt^2-c^-2dx^2))^(1/2), which is identically the speed
of light c. Now, we can rearrange the equation
c^2(dt/d(tau))^2-(dx/d(tau))^2=c^2 to be c^2(d(tau)/dt))^2
+(dx/d(tau))^2=c^2. This shows that an increase of an object's speed
through space, (dx/d(tau))^2)^(1/2)= dx/d(tau) must be accompanied by a
decrease in d(tau)/dt which is the object's speed through time, which
also may be considered the rate at which time elapses on it's own clock
d(tau) or the proper time, as compared with that on our stationary
clock dt.

As an object moves through space, it is rotated into the time
dimension, and less wave fronts of time are allowed to pass through it
relative to a stationary object, which bears the full brunt of wave
fronts. Thus a moving clock will run slower, as all clocks are based on
the probabilistic emission and propagation of photons, and as a moving
clock catches up with the expanding wavefront of time, the chance that
a photon will be emitted without being reabsorbed is diminished. Thus
it is shown that the spatial and temporal dimensions are moving
relative to one-another. The laws and equations of relativity and
quantum mechanics rest upon this fundamental nature of physical
reality.

Rest Energy:

Where does an object's rest energy come from? It comes from fact that
the expanding time dimension is moving, giving a stationary object a
velocity of c through space-time, even when the object appears at rest
on a lab table. This massive velocity relative to time, when translated
into the spatial dimensions via a Lorentz rotation of the velocity
4-vector, is manifested in energy. E=mc^2.

The Photon's Null Vector:

How can we be comfortable that an entity of zero length moves at the
speed of light? The only way for this to make sense is if the time
dimension is moving relative to the spatial dimension. A null vector in
space-time is defined by a photon, which moves at the velocity of light
through space-time. So it is that to have zero length in space-time, an
entity must translate through the three spatial dimensions at the
velocity of light. This notion of maintaining zero interval by a
velocity equal to c suggests that one of the coordinates, specifically
the time coordinate, is moving at a velocity c relative to the three
spatial coordinates.

The Notion of Standing Still in Space and Time:

The only way to remain stationary in space is to move through time with
a velocity of c. The only way to remain stationary in time is to move
through space with a velocity of c.

Thus the time and space dimensions must be moving relative to one
another.

Einstein proclaimed that all objects travel through space-time at c.
Even though we perceive a ruler along the x axis to be stationary, it
is yet traveling through space-time at the fixed speed of c, implying
that time is moving through it. Rotate it towards the y axis, and its
projection upon the x axis shortens, yet it still appears to be
stationary, and it is still traveling through space-time at the rate of
c. Rotate it into the time dimension, and it's projection along the x
axis still shortens (Lorentz contraction), but now it begins to move
through the three spatial dimensions, while maintaining the fixed speed
of c through space-time. Again, we see it move through the three
spatial dimensions as it is rotated into the time dimension because the
time dimension is moving relative to the three spatial dimensions.

As Brian Greene points out in the Appendix to Chapter 2 of The Elegant
Universe, we note that from the space-time position 4-vector
x=(ct,x1,x2,x3), we can create the velocity 4-vector u=dx/d(tau), where
tau is the proper time defined by
d(tau)^2=dt^2-c^-2(dx1^2+dx2^2+dx3^2). Then the "speed through
space-time" is the magnitude of the 4-vector u,
((c^2dt^2-dx^2)/(dt^2-c^-2dx^2))^(1/2), which is identically the speed
of light c. Now, we can rearrange the equation
c^2(dt/d(tau))^2-(dx/d(tau))^2=c^2 to be
c^2(d(tau)/dt))^2+(dx/d(tau))^2=c^2. This shows that an increase of an
object's speed through space, (dx/d(tau))^2)^(1/2)= dx/d(tau) must be
accompanied by a decrease in d(tau)/dt which is the object's speed
through time, which also may be considered the rate at which time
elapses on it's own clock d(tau) or the proper time, as compared with
that on our stationary clock dt.

Conservation of Momemtum & Energy = Conservation of Momenergy

Red Shift

More Curvature = Slower Time:

Energy's Mass:

Energy has mass because energy is mass rotated fully into the moving
time dimension. Energy has zero rest mass, as mass represents the
component of an object that exists in the spatial dimensions, through
which time can expand.

Time Dilation:

Clocks slow down as they approach the speed of light, because they
catch up with the expanding time dimension. All clocks measure time
based on the emission of photons. The faster a clock travels, the less
chance there is for it to emit a photon, as the photon will be
reabsorbed.

Constancy of c in all frames:

The measurement of time is always measured with some mechanism that is
based on the propagation of photons, whether it be photons in a clock
spring or photons in a quartz crystal. Hence, when we measure the speed
of light in a frame, we are always measuring it relative to a mechanism
based on the speed of light in that frame. Hence the velocity of light
is always viewed as a constant in all frames.

Length Contraction:

Picture four dimensions--three spatial dimensions and one time
dimension. An object can be rotated so that its projection along any
particular axis decreases. When an object is rotated into time, its
projection along the x, y, and z directions decreases. This is known as
relativistic length contraction. Relativistic length contraction is
*always* accompanied by time dilation and an increase in the object's
velocity. Because rotating an object along the time dimension always
results in the object gaining a velocity relative to the spatial
dimensions, one can conclude that the time dimension must be moving.

Spherical Symmetry of Photon Propagation:

Quantum mechanics teaches us that a photon propagates as a
spherically-symmetric wavefront. This is because a photon is mass
rotated into the time dimension, which is expanding as a
spherically-symmetric wavefront.

Spherical Symmetry of Time Expansion through Three Dimensions:

The projection of a sphere in two dimensions is a circle. The
projection of the fourth dimension in three dimensions is a sphere. And
because this fourth dimension, time, is expanding, it appears as an
expanding sphere. For a photon to stay stationary in time, it moves
through space with a velocity of c. Think about that--the photon stays
stationary in time, while moving at a velocity of c relative to the
three spatial diemensions. It expands as a spherically symmetrical
wavefront by staying stationary in time. Therefore, time must be
expanding in a spherically symmetric manner throughout space.

Rest Mass Is Invariant

Rest mass represents an entity that exists fully in space. It is
invariant.

Increase of System Mass:

As an object accelerates through space-time, the mass of the system
increases as energy is added. The rest mass remains invariant, but it
is pulled along through space-time by interacting with photons, which
in turn no longer travel the speed of light. When photons interact with
matter, matter accelerates, while photons slow down.

Entropy:

Because time is expanding as a spherically symmetric wavefront through
the three spatial dimensions, photons, as well as all matter that
interacts with photons, exhibits a probability to move in a spherically
symmetric manner. Thus, if we have a clump of atoms in the middles of a
room, a probability exists for the atoms to spread apart in a
spherically symmetrical manner. at each point in space, they exhibit a
probabilty of moving along any of the three spatial coordinates,
carried along by the expanding time dimension.

The - c2t2 in the space-time metric

The four dimensions of space-time are divided into three spatial
dimensions and one time dimension. In the space-time metric, where ds
is an invariant expressed as\ ds^2=x^2+y^2+z^2-c^2t^2, the minus sign
and c^2 distinguishes the t coordinate from the three spatial
coordinates. Why the minus sign exists is most often glossed over--it
is considered to just "be" there, because it is there.

That the time dimension is different somehow from the three spatial
dimensions is obvious. This difference is a result of the time
dimension moving relative to the spatial dimensions.

Planck's constant

Fundamental Wave Nature

The fundamental wave nature of all matter is based upon the fundamental
wave nature of space-time.

Wave-Particle Duality

Wave particle duality is a result of measurements of objects
interacting upon a canvas of space and time dimensions that are moving
relative to one another. Wave behavior, or interference, results when
two photons interfere in the time dimension as it propagates through
space. Particle behavior results when a photon interacts with an
electron, when it is taken out of the moving time dimension and
localized in the static spatial dimensions, being caught by the
electron.

Philosophical and Physical Barriers to Moving Dimensions

Many trained physicists have a knee-jerk reaction that the time
dimension cannot be moving because "dimensions cannot move." First off,
since the universe is expanding, space-time is also expanding,
demonstrating that dimensions are moving and expanding. Secondly,
general relativity demonstrates that massive objects warp space-time,
meaning that as a massive object moves though space-time, it stretches
space-time, showing again that space-time in one area can move, or
deform, relative to space-time in another area. Thus there exist
neither philosophical nor physical barriers to the concept of moving
dimensions, but for artificial ones within lazy minds.

Rather than just accepting the minus sign in front of the c^2t^2 as
being there because it "just is there," this paper aims to look at the
deeper reality which gives rise to the minus sign. A physicist's job is
not to accept things on blind faith, nor only ask questions that are
allowed to be asked, but a physicist's job is to wonder. And that
wonder, which seems all but forgotten in the bureaucratization of
modern physics, leads to the deeper beauty. "Imagination is more
important than knowledge," was how one physicist put it.

The Unification of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics--Moving Dimensions Theory

String theory doesn't say or do anything, and yet it receives hundreds
of millions in funding.

Moving Dimensions Theory explains the universe on a deeper level, and
it is castigated, impugned and reviled, but only by snarky wanna-be
string theorists.

String theory is a mythology propagated by a postmodern elite who want
your tax dollars.

They want to keep all theory safely out of the realm of experiments.

And so they hate reality.

But Moving Dimensions Theory will triumph, as reality always does:
