Is MOTION possible ?

Is CONSTANT MOTION the one and only origin of INERTIA ?

Is INERTIA the resistance towards a change in direction of that CONSTANT MOTION ?

Observational studies of a complex reality will not lead you to an understanding of what reality is. To understand reality, the best route to take is to THINK about what existence is, and to THINK about what is required to create existence. In other words, start with the basics and understand that the complexities are simply the outcome of these basics in action. Starting from the basics does not mean starting with the basics that are already accepted. To eliminate any previous errors made by man, one must start from point zero. This also eliminates any error of assumption which may have led one to think that the basics are already exposed, when in actual fact the true basics lie below that which is presently accepted as the " BASICS ".   In other words, simpler truths which are closer to the foundation by being the actual foundation itself, may not have yet been exposed despite the majority thinking otherwise.

For those of you who have some background in Physics, you will notice that today's unanswered questions currently present in the land of Physics, are answered on the next few pages by simply exposing the correct basics.

Unfortunately, what is accepted as today's basics, are considered to be simple. Because of this simplicity, the understanding of these simplicities can not be in error, so says the majority. This then ensures that Physics will never be complete, if these basics ARE in error. Therefore, those who do not review the basics, are those who oppose the possible completeness.

The next several pages will make it clear that Relativity is a necessity needed to make Variables possible, and that the Quantum units, Time Units, Space Units, Energy Units, and Most importantly Event Units, are all required to make this Relativity possible in the first place. Without units, one can not relate one to another. Without units, an Event can not be an event, for an event is a unit of occurrence.

Motion exists, therefore for starters we must understand what is required to make motion possible. If "Motion" is examined closely, it appears as though it is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. Logic says that it would be impossible to push an object that is at rest in space, into motion!   For instance, if force is applied to an object that is at rest in space, it would first have to disappear at its original rest position to make the process of moving from such a position possible. Then after doing so, it must somehow magically reappear at a new position. This practice must then continue if the motion is to continue !

People in general, simply accept without question, and therefore have not examined this event closely at all. As the result of this lack of effort, they skip the facts and then proceed onward just thinking that the object has simply moved " FROM "the original rest position, ignoring the fact that it actually had to disappear " AT "this original rest position to begin the process of motion in the first place. Yet this is a simple fact that can not be denied. Even if one says that it disappears from  its original rest position, this still means that it had to disappear at its original rest position. Therefore logic dictates that the Universe must have been designed in such a manner that this problem is somehow overcome! To do so, there must be a replacement for the ABSOLUTE MOTION that we think exists, a replacement for what we perceive as variable motion, both replaced with something more extreme but also something that has deceived us so far ! 


Fig. #1 

To help clarify this point, imagine a hypothetical flexible object which could stretch then contract to reach a new position. In this case, the object will still be maintaining its presence, its existence, all during this entire transition of movement from point "A" to point "B".

Now imagine a solid object. It can not stretch, and so once pushed into motion it would have to disappear at its original position of rest, and then it must somehow reappear at the new position, leaving its method of existing, non-existing, then existing again, UNCLEAR.

The second simple observation is the fact that MOTION contains Two variables. 1) Distance and  2) Speed. Variables range from zero to infinity, or in this case of course the variables range from greater than zero to infinity, since zero itself would obviously mean no motion at all. Now if we were to set both of theseVariables  to infinity, the outcome would be as follows.

1) Traveling across an infinite distance  --> To continue to travel without end.

2) Traveling at an infinite speed  --> To travel across any distance without the passage of any time.

Note: If it takes time to get from point "A" to point "B", this means that you can still move faster and use less time to get from point "A" to point "B", therefore you are still traveling at a finite speed, not at an infinite speed. Only if no time at all occurs while moving across any distance, is the speed actually an infinite speed.

This combination of infinities produces a paradox because, 

1) + 2)  =  To continue to travel without end, and all done without the passage of any time at all.
Or a more amusing version,


How many of you out there noticed these peculiar flaws ?

If not, it simply means you have followed the pattern of monkey see monkey believe, and have questioned nothing !
But at least this allows you to absorb knowledge, flawed or not, like a sponge.

The hypothetical flexible object, once stretched, has been able to exist at more than one place at the same time. Therefore the solid object somehow must also be able to exist at more than one place at the same time, to make the start of motion possible.    But How??   We will get into the details of that later on.

To go on forever in no time at all, implies that the motion across space must continue on forever, but while doing so, time must come to a stop. Therefore, at some finite speed, the ticking of time, from the moving objects point of view, will have to come to a complete stop while the traveling still continues onward at this same finite speed, continuing onward across space, forever.

But How??

It is as if the universe was run by a computer that can only do a limited amount of work. Although responsible for an individual objects sense of both TIME and MOTION, the computer is forced to reduce the objects awareness of the passage of time, if the object is in motion. The computers abilities are clearly Finite. Therefore, both TIME and MOTION are encapsulated within a FINITE of some kind.

The next step is a TIME / MOTION analysis.

TIME / MOTION analysis

Question 1 - Is an object that is at rest in Space at complete rest ?   Answer, - No.
  It is in motion through TIME.
Question 2 - Is the motion through Time at an infinite speed  ?   Answer, - No.
  As just stated on the previous page, both time and motion are
  encapsulated wthin a finite of some kind, therefore limiting the
  speed of motion through both SPACE and TIME.

Since objects are still in motion even if at rest in space or time, it is simple and logical to say that all objects are constantly in motion in a four dimensional reality, meaning a TIME - SPACE reality.


FIG. #2

By changing the direction of travel within TIME-SPACE as shown in Fig. 2 above, one can ---

        .    1)   Be at rest in  SPACE and move through TIME.
        .    2)   Move through both  SPACE  and  TIME.                        ( With time having slowed down. )
        .    3)   Be at rest in   TIME    and move through  SPACE.       ( To go on forever, in no time at all. )
        .    4)   Travel at an infinite Speed ( crossing distances in no time at all ), but at a finite Velocity.
        .    5)   Conclude -  All   INFINITIES   reside within a   FINITE   of some kind.

All clocks in a common environment, tick at a common speed. From this it is logical to conclude that all these objects share the same (c)onstant motion across the four dimensions of Time-Space, since all these clocks tick at the same speed, and all the clocks are at rest in space relative to each other. This cosmological (c)onstant, determines the maximum speed at which one can move through space or time. To clarify the term 'SPEED' when dealing with motion through both TIME and SPACE, it is best to picture one's self viewing this motion from a higher 5th dimensional point of view, looking down at the 4 dimensions of TIME-SPACE, seeing all objects moving at the same speed but in different possible directions. Using this principle of having a (c)onstant motion within TIME-SPACE, it makes it possible to create infinities within a finite system, it allows the creation of variables. However, these variables ranging from zero to infinity, only exist RELATIVISTICALLY, due to man not being able to look across the depth of the dimension of Time, thus taking time out of the visual observation equation. The end result leaves that which appears to be a change of the magnitude of the objects motion, when in fact it is only a change of spatial velocity alone, and not a change in the overall magnitude of the object's motion across Time-Space !

With motion understood, the next step is an OBJECT / MOTION analysis

OBJECT / MOTION analysis

In FIG. #3 diagram below, we start with an object which has a 1.000 foot length. When at rest in space and moving through time, the length of the object extends entirely across space. However, if we change the direction of travel, a fascinating change occurs. If for example the object is traveling at 2/3 of the maximum possible speed of motion across space, the object now only extends 0.745' across space. So from our point of view, the observers point of view, the object has shrunk from a 1.000' length to 0.745' instead. 

Time Space Motion Vectors
FIG. # 3   

The object itself, however, has still retained the very same length. The object has now extended partially across the dimension of time as well. The faster it moves through space, the more it extends across time and the less it extends across space. If its constant motion inTime-Space was now directed across a Spatial dimension only, the objects spatial length will have been reduced right down to ZERO !  

The most important simple observation this time, is that not only do we exist in a four dimensional reality, but all objects within this reality are also four dimensional, but of a much smaller scale.   I say are four dimensional because due to the big bang that started this universe, everything is in spatial motion to some degree. Nothing is truly at complete spatial rest.

This extension across the dimension of time, which occurs if in motion across space, implies that the object will exist at more than just one Time at the same place in Space, even though the object is in motion across Space. This object is  not a flexible object that is stretching across space as in the example given in FIG. #1, so what exactly does it mean for it to be four dimensional ?

In this case, Logic says that it is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE for a solid object to exist at more than just one time in one place in space while it is constantly moving away from its previous position. Therefore this Universe must have been designed in such a manner that this problem too is overcome !   Once again logic says that this phenomena can therefore only exist RELATIVISTICALLY, and not in the ABSOLUTE sense. Clearly, much more analysis is still required, but before we do that, let us do a geometric analysis of what we understand so far.

The next step is a GEOMETRIC analysis.
