What is Energy?

Everything around us is energy. Matter is energy, light is energy, heat is energy. In physics, energy is defined as: the capacity or power to do work, such as the capacity to move an object by the application of force. It is important to note that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Energy may transform from one form to another, but one of the key laws of science is that energy is always conserved. Understanding energy at its fundamental level, and why these laws of science exist, may be the key to mankind’s survival.

The study of energy is intricately linked to physics, and more recently, specifically research in particle physics. It was back in 1905 when the famous relationship between energy and mass was introduced by Albert Einstein. It’s been a century since Einstein wrote his papers on relativity, yet the connection with gravity and how it transforms this energy remains a mystery today. Termed, a theory of everything, scientists continue to search for the theory that unifies gravity with other forces in the universe, and how energy is transformed between various forms. The problem is that some forms of energy cannot be linked together by one equation. In particular, the understanding of the conversion from matter (mass) to light is not well understood and is represented by the fact that there are two major branches of physics (classical and quantum) to calculate each one.

An understanding of energy, and solving the dependence on the Sun, will likely require a giant leap in particle physics knowledge. It’s critical not only for research and understanding, but potentially for the longevity of the human race in the centuries to come.



Introducing Energy Wave Theory

This site is dedicated to a new theory on energy – titled Energy Wave Theory – that requires a fresh new look on physics, based on the wave structure of matter. The argument that is presented in summary on this site, and detailed in papers linked from this site, is that there is more than a century of physicists misled by the belief that waves cannot travel through a medium in space. This wrong assumption, based on an 1887 experiment to detect a medium known as the aether, has led to inaccurate explanations of subatomic particle experiments.

“Energy is the motion of the universe (aether) which travels as waves.”

It first starts with an understanding of energy. In simplest terms, energy is the motion of the universe (aether) which travels as waves. An analogy is a pool of water. Imagine that the pool is flat and stationary. There is no movement of water in any direction within the pool. There is no energy in the pool.  Zero energy. Next, imagine that something violently shakes the pool.  Waves begin to thrash around the pool in all directions.  Now, the pool has energy.  It has the ability to move objects, such as a toy on the surface. In the pool example, energy is the movement of water, which flows as waves. In the universe, it is the movement of the aether.

Energy Wave Theory begins with simple assumptions that matter and light are based on waves, but they have different wave types known as longitudinal and transverse waves. Forces like electromagnetism, gravity and the nuclear force that holds atoms together are unified into one force with a difference in wave type and amplitude. Readers will find that the theory has set a solid foundation and has competed the burden of proof for a new theory in this field including:

  1. Calculating values that match experimental results, and
  2. Deriving existing energy and force equations, and
  3. Providing reasonable explanations for observations in particle experiments

This theory simplifies our understanding of energy, particles and forces. Amongst some of the simplifications are:

  • Particles – Instead of dozens of particles, there is only one fundamental particle responsible for creating other particles.
  • Photons – Photons are directly linked to particle energy through a transformation of wave type from longitudinal wave form to transverse wave form. There is one wave, in different forms, and energy is always conserved.
  • Forces – Instead of four distinct forces, there is one reason for a change in motion of a particle – to minimize amplitude. Forces have been united in this theory.
  • Atoms – The reason for an electron orbiting a proton, its distance and shape is calculated with classical mechanics, reducing the need for a quantum explanation of the electron.


Where is the Proof?

This entire web site is dedicated to the proof of Energy Wave Theory. It includes derivations of energy and force equations, derivations of common constants used in physics, calculations of particle energies, photon energies, forces and more. The theory proof page details the arguments for a simpler definition of the universe.
