                                                       introduction


With Albert Einstein's relativity theories (Special Relativity, 1905, and General Relativity, 1915) and with quantum theory
physicists have been able to reduce all physical forces in the Universe to four basic types; electromagnetic,
gravitational, weak nuclear, and strong nuclear. While three of the forces, electromagnetic, weak nuclear, and strong
nuclear have been significantly related to each other through quantum theory, it has not yet been possible to relate all
four of these forces to each other in a logical, straight-forward way.  I believe that I have come up with an approach to
describing physical laws in such a way that a straight forward unification is possible.  This approach is based upon an
alternative explanation to the presently well accepted explanation of the creation and expansion of the Universe, the
"Big Bang" theory.  Instead of assuming that the Universe is simply the result of a primordial big bang, assume instead
that at one time the Universe existed in a condition of unity, similar to the unity that is assumed to have existed before
the big bang, and that time and space as we know it began when the size of space, as measured in terms of the velocity
of light, began to contract relative to itself and relative to the overall size of the Universe.  With this view there would still
be an initial actual expansion of the overall size of the Universe (this creating space initially) accompanying the initial
contraction of the size of space within the Universe, but this would eventually cease and the apparent expansion of the
Universe that we observe today would be fully the result of a contraction in the size of space within the Universe. This
point of view means that time and space within the Universe began as the result of a "Big Shrink".

With this view the size of all entities comprised of energy and matter would also contract with time, at the same rate as
does the speed of light and the space between entities, and thus a constant relative size for all entities within the
Universe is maintained.  Also with this view the apparent velocity between galaxies separated by large distances in the
Universe is actually the result of the basic units space, segments of space with a size on the order of Planck's length,
that lay between those galaxies actually contracting in size while the positions of those galaxies remain constant.  This
then clearly explains why even though distant galaxies appear to be receding from us at great velocities they are not in
actual dilated frames.  They are not dilated because their apparent motion is not actual motion, it is caused by the
contraction of the size of the fundamental units of space between them and us. This is how genuine motionless non-
dilated frames can exist at all positions within the Universe, with apparent motion perceived between those positions.

In regards to the red shifting of the light from distant receding galaxies, the wavelengths of radiation released into space
in the past from those galaxies will be longer at the time they are released because of the greater distance scales of the
past, but those wavelengths also undergo the same general contraction experienced by everything else in the
Universe.  However, they also undergo an apparent expansion due to the contraction of the basic units of space that lay
between successive nodes of those wavelengths, this producing a red shift in the wavelength.  The greater the waves'
time in free space, the greater the shift.

An objection that some may have to this concept is that this then means that energy and mass are being lost in the
process.  However, it is possible that the rate of contraction is only great at the initial stages of the Universe's creation,
the first few nanoseconds or so, when, according to present day thought the Universe expanded at an extreme rate and
the primordial energy of the initial singularity differentiated into the forms of energy that we perceive now. Thus, in terms
of the contraction approach, at this stage there would not be a loss of energy, but instead simply a differentiation, or
breaking down, of the primordial energy into present forms of energy. After this stage the rate of contraction can be so
small (on the order of -1/t^2 per Planck time unit, where t is the present age of the Universe in Planck time units, this
rate determined by the calculated size of the Universe and an assumed present day rate of apparent expansion of the
Universe of c, the speed of light) that the rate of loss of matter-energy due to contraction would be such that the loss in
mass-energy can be accounted for in terms of undetected mass-energy.  After all, presently physicists believe that a
large portion of the original mass-energy of the Universe is still unaccounted for, and since the Big Shrink implies that
matter has a greater size in the past, this might be where the elusive dark matter lay.  Also with this approach I will show
it is possible to describe contracted (accelerated) time reference frames which have the opposite properties of dilated
frames.  This concept can lead to a theory of gravity which includes anti-gravity, and this anti-gravity may be what dark
energy actually is.

On the following pages I present a radically altered view of our Universe based upon the contraction principle, and also
attempt to show that by describing the concepts of Special Relativity theory in terms of a contracting nature for space it
is possible to derive a solution for the problems presented by the quantum nature of motion directly from relativity.  This
attempt is not complete and may not be exactly correct in every respect, but I believe that it does show the potential of
this approach.  If this approach is valid it would constitute the basis for a unified field theory, since all physical
phenomena are presently explained in terms of either relativity concepts or quantum theory concepts.






                                                     I.  Contraction Basics



I will now present certain basic contraction principles.  The size of the space within the Universe, measured in terms of
the rate at which light moves that space, contracts at a rate of the change in c equals -Ur/Tp^2 per Planck time unit,  
where Ur  is the radius of the Universe and Tp  the number of Planck time units that have past since the beginning of
time in the Universe, with Ur=0 when Tp=0.  The positions of matter within the Universe remains static relative to the
perimeter of the Universe unless accelerated, while photons contract toward the perimeter of the Universe in their
direction of propagate at a rate of c.  Also, all entities in the Universe and space actually go through a cycle of
alternating  expansion and contraction, with the expansion rate slightly less than the contraction rate, resulting in a net
contraction.

With the shrinking rate being inversely proportional to time, it will decrease with time, which is what should happen since
if all measures of things within the Universe are shrinking proportionally, including the velocity of light, the rate of the
apparent expansion of the Universe (apparent since expansion is only relative to shrinking internal parts) should also
shrink.  This is clearly seen if one considers that even with the conventional expanding view the same is true; comparing
the rate of expansion to the size of the Universe at any given time shows that, if that rate is constant, it diminishes in size
with time relative to the size of the Universe since with time the Universe gets larger.

To keep contraction in proper proportion, contraction must be described in terms of per unit size.  This would mean that
if a distance equal to the radius of the Universe contracts such that the Universe appears to increase in size at a rate of
the velocity of light, c, showing that the contraction rate for that distance is c, then any smaller distance will have a
proportionally smaller rate of contraction.  Thus, in this case, an object half way across the Universe would then appear
to recede from us at c/2.  This then is consistent with the conventional expanding space-time view, and explains why
gravity easily over comes shrinking effects at small distances.

As explained earlier, the wavelengths of radiation released into space in the past will undergo the same general
contraction experienced by everything else in the Universe, but they will also be affected by the apparent relative
expansion of space between the nodes of the waves due to the contraction with time of our standards of measure.
These particular expansions and contractions cancel each other out, so an apparent expansion for the wavelength
relative to the contracting standard of measure, the speed of light remains.  The result is a perceived redshift for those
wavelengths, a redshift which is proportional to the distance and time that the radiation has travelled through space.

In applying the concept of contraction to Albert Einstein's Special Relativity Theory it becomes clear that it is useful to
describe time reference frames in terms of two distinct size parameters.  One is what I call overall size and the other is
what I call internal size.  This is necessary because contraction rates for space must be described in terms of per unit of
space and also diminish with time.  The overall size describes the total unity size of a reference frame, or the total size of
space relative to which internal units of space of that frame, measured in terms of the velocity of light, contract.   Internal
size represents the size of space as measured in terms of the velocity of light relative to that overall size.  For example,
hypothetically, if we begin with a Universe with a radius of 1x c and time causes c to contract so that after 10 seconds c
becomes equal to 1/10th the radius of the Universe, the internal size of space equals 1/10th the overall size.  When
comparing different time reference frames we find it is necessary to compare not just internal contraction rates of a
frame but also overall unity sizes which can be different for different time reference frames.  With this approach a dilated
time frame actually represents an enlarged time reference frame in terms of internal size relative to a non-dilated normal
frame, with these enlarged frames having faster rates of contraction.   However, this larger frame is always perceived in
contracted form within the context of a normal non-dilated frame, this producing the perceptions that a motionless
observer has of that dilated frame, including length contraction.  This is explained in greater detail in a later section.

A consequence of the contraction approach to relativity concepts is that it is possible to describe what is the opposite of
dilated time reference frames, that is, contracted (or accelerated) time reference frames.  Contracted time reference
frames are possible with the contraction approach because with the contracting nature of things a new reference point
exists;  the size of the past, present and future reality of an entity.  Since the past and the future is differentiated from
each other and from the present by size and rates of contraction, motion can no longer be considered as simply relative
to other entities but must also be considered in terms of positions and size relative to the past of an entity.

In regards to accelerated time reference frames, just as before when I described dilated frames in terms of contraction
there seems to be a contradiction between the concept of contracting frames, which implies that future frames are
relatively smaller, and the expansion caused by time acceleration. The reasoning that resolves this apparent paradox is
the same as that which explains the contracted nature of dilated frames.  Since future frames are smaller, their
contraction rates relative to a normal present frame are less, and this can cause a relative expansion, not in the size of
the accelerated frame as measured in terms of it's velocity of light but in terms of it's dispersion into the space of the
present frames.  This concept can be paralleled to our presently accepted understanding of the rapid expansion of
space at the beginning of the Universe, where the velocity of light does not increase with the expansion, even though
the Universe is expanding faster than the speed of light, but instead, pockets of space inflate, causing the rapid
expansion.

Accelerated time reference frames have the opposite characteristics to those of dilated frames.  Time is accelerated,
length is expanded and mass is diminished.  In terms of the contraction approach it also means that the overall size of
the space of the frame is expanded and the internal size of space, as measured by the velocity of light is contracted.
This will be explained in greater detail  later.  I will then use the concept of accelerated time reference frames to explain
the nature of dark energy and also to provide a non-probabilistic explanation of quantum phenomena.

The description of the contraction of space in terms of the expansion and contraction of a group of fundamental units of
space can be used to describe the spatial distortions of gravity.  As general relativity shows, gravity warps space-time.  
In the contraction approach each fundamental increment of matter (1 Planck mass) is associated with a fundamental
increment of gravity, a graviton, with these gravitational increments causing fundamental increments of space to expand
and contract at different rates, this causing the repositioning of matter and energy located within the field. In a
gravitational field space can be considered to expand outwardly from the center of gravity and relative to the position of
matter and energy in the field, without affecting the relative positions of the mass and energy, and also then to contract
at a faster rate in toward the gravitational center, carrying along with it the matter and energy located in the field,
imparting an increase in velocity toward the center of the field to the matter and energy.  

The expansion and contraction of space can be more clearly be explained in quantum terms.  As explained elsewhere in
this work, expanding aspects of particles (pilot particles), in this case gravitons, can be considered to be an accelerated
aspect of the graviton which determines where that particle will exist and begin contracting toward in it's next cycle of
contraction.  Basically as an entity contracts it has an accelerated aspect to it that expands, and this determines where
the next point from which contraction occurs.  In regards to space, a point in space under the influence of a graviton will
always contract toward a gravitational center over a determined period of time, while simultaneously an accelerated pilot
particle of the graviton will move in the opposite direction away from the center of gravity, this determining where the
next contraction action begins. With the pilot particles movement away from the center equal to the contraction toward
the center, the contraction characteristics of a particular section of space will remain constant. Since a particle of matter
or energy's position in that space is only affected by the contraction action toward the gravitational center and not by
the outward motion of the pilot particle, the contraction toward the center adds velocity to the matter or energy towards
the center, and at a progressively faster as it moves closer to the center.  An analogy of this can been seen if one
considers a series of rollers laid side by side spinning in the same direction at rates that are increased for each roller as
one moves down the line of rollers in the direction of the motion of the tops of the rollers.  While the bottom of the rollers
move in an equal and opposite direction of the top of the rollers, this paralleling the motions that keep positions of
space in a gravitational field static, when a package is put on the top of the rollers it will accelerate in the direction which
the tops of those rollers are moving.     

With this understanding there is a simple and direct method for describing acceleration due to gravity. Mass can be
described in terms of fundamental units, with each fundamental unit of mass equal to 1h/c^2.  Each of these units
produces a graviton which causes an increase in the rate of contraction of the space between it and other units of
mass. It can be said that the sum of the contracting forces of these fundamental mass units which comprise a mass
body produces gravitons and associated gravity waves that warp the space-time that contains the body, as says
General Relativity theory, causing mass and energy located in that space-time to accelerate toward the center of the
group of mass units. In terms of hypothetical gravitons, it can be said that gravitons, each which has aspects that
expand throughout the space of the Universe, cause an imbalance in the expansion and contraction of the fundamental
units of space that exist in space-time, this giving the fundamental units a structure which causes mass and energy
located in that space to contract toward the position of the fundamental unit with the greatest number of gravitons, this
being located the center of the gravitational field.

Here is a formula for acceleration due to gravity that I derived through the contraction approach using the constants c,
Planck's constant and length, which gives results that are equivalent to Newton's gravitational equation:

Acceleration = (N)(c)(PL)^2/(d^2), where N=2pi(mc^2) /h, m is the total mass causing the gravitational field, c is the
velocity of light, h is Planck's constant, PL is Planck's length and d is the distance between the masses.  Here each
Planck mass of the system contributes gravitons and waves that produce an increase in velocity of [c(PL)^2]/d^2 for any
mass or energy located in any section of space located at a distance d from the gravitational center.






                                              II.  Beginnings of the Universe


The following is an explanation of the initial development of the Universe, including the phenomenon of “inflation”,  
based upon the contraction approach. Planck’s length describes the velocity of light in terms of Planck’s time period (c
equals Planck’s length/Planck's time period).  As Planck’s length and Planck's time period are fundamental constants, it
is best to describe the contraction of the velocity of light and the expansion of space in terms of the contraction of
Planck’s length per Planck’s time period and it's change in size relative to the size of Universe over the passage of time.
The simplest description of the apparent expansion of the Universe through the contraction of c would be to begin at t =
0 with the radius of the Universe (R), measured in terms of the rate that light moves through space multiplied by time,
equal in size to one Planck's length, which at this point in time would equal approximately 1.3 x 10^26 meters in length.  
So starting  at t=0, c would equal approx. 1.3 x 10^26 meters per ptu, and from this point c would contract at a rate of -1/
(ptu)^2 per ptu, so that at the present point in time, after approximately 7.8x10^60 ptu, Planck's length would equal to
approx. 1/7.8x10^60 the present size of the Universe.

This model as stands does not accurately reflect present day observations and interpretations of the expansion of the
Universe but it is possible to introduce an expansion factor, along with variations in expansion and contraction rates,
which not only enable the model to more accurately reflect observations but also reveal the underlying unity that exists
within the physical structures of the Universe.

The expansion-contraction concept of the development of the Universe is derived from the expansion-contraction
explanation of Special Relativity concepts mentioned previously and explained in greater detail later. It is based upon
the concept that the velocity of light and the size of the Universe have an inverse relationship; the smaller the velocity of
light, the larger the Universe.  With this concept we could say that if the velocity of light is zero, the Universe associated
with that light would be completely void and infinite in size.  This then gives us a way of describing reality as it was
before the beginning of time within our present Universe.  If we start with a velocity of light of zero and an infinite void,
and say that a unified force with a velocity of light that grows in size from zero begins filling the void at a single point in
the void while the size of the void contracts proportionally from infinity toward that point, eventually there would come a
time when the velocity of light and the radius of the Universe become equal in size. This point is what can be said to be
the beginning of our Universe.

The situation leading to this point is actually, in terms of the contraction approach, a description of time moving
backward.  Thus, time moves backwards in the void Universe and for the unified force until the void Universe and the
velocity of light become equal in size, at t=1 Planck unit, this causing what could be called both a collision and fusion of
the two, reversing time, causing it to move forward, which reverses the expansion of the velocity of light, to a
contraction, and reverses the contracting of the void, though not void now, being filled with the unified force, to, initially,
zero.  In this situation the unified force can be said to disperse into the void and visa-versa, the void can be said to
penetrate and disperses into the unified force, creating our Universe and eventually differentiating the unified force into
the basic forces we have today.

In putting numbers to these concepts, for simplicity sake we should assume that the ratio of the radius of the present
day Universe relative to Planck's length equals approximately 1:1x10^60 Planck length units.  We can say that the
velocity of light for the unified force expands from a size of zero to a size of approximately 1.6 x 10^-5 m during the
passage of one Planck time unit. This is approximately 1 x 10^30 times the size of todays speed of light measured in
terms of Planck's time.  The time period from t = 0 to t=1 describes the contracting void and expanding unified force
mentioned above, so during this time the radius of the void contracts to a size of approximately 1.6 x 10-5m.  The factor
1x10^30 is not chosen arbitrarily.  It is the result of describing the simple contraction factor mentioned earlier which
describes the relationship between Planck's length and the radius of the Universe, this producing a ratio of 1:1x10^60 at
our present point in time, in terms of two factors, a contraction factor and an expansion factor; a contraction factor for
the velocity of light (and thus the internal size of space) of 1/1x10^30, or 1/ptu^1/2, and an expansion factor for the
radius of the Universe of 10^30/1, or ptu^1/2 to one.  This then brings about the same ratio of 1:1x10^60 for Planck's
length relative to the size of the radius of the Universe after approximately 13.8 billion years, but also accommodates
inflations of space.  As we will see these expansions and contractions don't necessarily occur equally or at constant
rates in time.  By choosing the proper timing and rates for these expansions and contractions, though, it is possible to
describe an evolution for the Universe that approximates present day observations and interpretations.

Another factor that should be explained here is that of the relativity concept of time dilation and what I mentioned earlier,
my new concept of time acceleration, and their relationship to the pre-Universe and post Big Bang conditions.  As
mentioned, with the contraction approach a dilated time reference frame represents an expanded velocity of light,
though in the context of a contracted size frame, while an accelerated time reference frame represents a contracted
velocity, though in the context of an expanded distance frame.  In my explanation of the pre-Universe, the void is what
actually defines the size context, and is shrinking in size as time moves backwards.  However the void is not yet
determining the size context of the expanding primordial unified force.  After the void collides with the expanding
primordial substance of the Universe, this "booting" the Universe, the void-substance combo stays constant in size for a
normal, non-dilated, non-accelerated Universe, contracts when time is slowed by time dilation and expands when time is
accelerated relative to that non-dilated, non-accelerated normal condition.

As just mentioned, in the pre-Universe, before the unification of the void with the unified force, the void is not yet
determining the size context for the velocity of light of the unified force.  Consequently, in applying time dilation and time
acceleration concepts to the expanding velocity of the unified force of pre-Universe we can see that in a frame dilated
by any factor, after 1 non-dilated normal Planck time unit, the unified force will have expanded to the same size as it
does in a normal frame, since though time would be dilated by a factor of u, velocity is also expanded by a factor of u.  
This is also true for the accelerated condition, with any time acceleration accompanied by a proportional contraction in
velocity of light. This situation creates a natural condition for the quantification of space and time.  In the pre-Universe
there is no differentiation between dilated, non-dilated and accelerated time because of the situation just described.  It is
the unification of the void with the unified force that produces quantified differentiation based upon one non-dilated
Planck time unit and the non-dilated velocity of light after the passing of that single pre-Universe Planck time unit.

With the above description the Universe as we know it, after the pre-Universe condition, begins at t=1 ptu, with an actual
radius equal to approximately 1.6 X 10^-5m (this 1x PL x 1x10^30).  In relative terms at that point in time this simply
equals 1 Planck length.  Now let's assume that at this point it is dark energy that is created by the collision of the
expanding unified force and the contracting void mentioned earlier, and that the Universe, now essentially comprised of
the unified force permeated by dark energy, maintains a constant size, while the speed of light, (c), and thus the internal
size of space, contracts at a rate of -1/t^2 per ptu, where 1 represents the radius (R) of the Universe at t = 1 ptu (which
also equals Planck's length at t=1).

After approximately 1x10^7.5 ptu, at an age of approx. 5.4x10^-36.5 sec, the Universe will appear to have a relative size
for it's radius of approx. (1x10^7.5) times Planck's length (as measured for that point in time), not because the radius of
the Universe has expanded in size but Planck's length, this describing the speed of light, has contracted by a factor of
1/10x10^7.5.  It is during this stage in the evolution of the Universe that the space of the Universe becomes divided into
a non-dilated frame and multiple dilated time reference frames, this a consequence of gravity separating from the
unified force.

The next stage begins when a time acceleration (indicating a burst of dark energy) occurs for the Universe for
approximately 1 x 10^7.5 ptu so that the overall size of the Universe expands at an accelerated rate such that after
1x10^15 ptu, at an actual age of approx. 5.4x10^-29 sec, the Universe will have expanded to a radius of approx. 1.6
x10^2.5 m, this equal to approximately 1x 10^7.5 times it's original size at t=1 of 1.6x10^-5m.  At this time Planck's length
will have also contracted by a total factor of 1/1x10^22.5, to a size of approximately 1.6 x 10^-27.5 m (this being the
result of a contraction by a factor of 1/1x10^7.5 occurring during the first 1x10^7.5 ptu of the Universe plus a contraction
by a factor of 1/1x10^15 which occurs during the general time accelerated phase). What's actually happened here is not
only an acceleration of time but also the creation of multiple non-dilated time frames from the dilated frames that were
created with the original, initial non-dilated frame.  It is the normalization of these dilated frames that causes the actual
expansion of the Universe over this time period, producing the relatively flat space of the Universe.

Paradoxically, while the actual radius of the Universe has expanded to 1.6x10^2.5 m in size at this time, the relative size
of the Universe at this time, that is, size relative to Planck's length at the time as measured by someone at that time, will
appear to be smaller, by a factor of approximately 1/1x10^75, at about 1.6x10^-5m, the same as it's original size, this
because entities within the Universe at this time, being larger relative their present day size by a factor of 1x10^30, (total
contractions and expansion factored in) will make the size of the Universe appear relatively smaller.  Also at this point in
time, though only approximately 5.4x10^-29 second have passed since the beginning of the Universe it will appear for
someone in the Universe that 5.4x10^-14 seconds have passed, this because of the affect of the time acceleration on
the Universe.  Later I will explain how all these various expansion and contraction rates, and also time periods, are
derived from the basic contraction factor of 1/1x10^30.

The period of time over which this occurs represents the rapidly inflating period in the Universe's evolution and is I
believe related to the presence of a large amount of dark energy in the Universe. The process that brings about this
dark energy and inflationary period begins with the separation of gravity from the unified force.  It is actually the
separation of gravity, and then, the electro-weak force, from the unified force, this leading to the beginning of the
formation of matter, that fuels the burst of dark energy that rapidly inflates the Universe. This sets the stage for the next
phase, when the inflating of the Universe slows, then stops, and the contraction of space returns to normal rates
. It is
after the apparent passing of 1x10^30 ptu (at approx. 5x10^-14 sec), the relatively expanded size of space reaches a
point where the interactions of electromagnetic and nuclear forces begin to normalize.  Eventually the continuing
contracting of the velocity of light and internal size of space bring about the Universe we perceive today.

One further note is that eventually I will attempt to demonstrate that the distribution of gravitational sources in the
Universe affect the expanding effects of dark energy such that as sources becomes more consolidated, gathered
together by gravity, this creating large areas of space with fewer gravitational sources, the expansion of space between
these consolidated sources can accelerate, this explaining the observed acceleration in the Universe's expansion.





                                           III.  Energy and Matter Structures     


                           a.  The relative positions of photons and matter in space


The contraction hypothesis states that all space and entities within the Universe should be considered to be contracting
relative to the overall size of the Universe, this making it appear that the Universe is expanding in every direction at a
velocity of c.  It can be deduced from this that any length within the Universe is contracting at the rate of L/-(Ut)/(ptu)2,
where L is the length considered in terms of number of Planck lengths and Ut is the number of Planck time units that
have past since the beginning of the Universe.  This means that a length equal to the base radius of the Universe
contracts at a rate of c (which is equal to Planck’s length per Planck’s time period).  This can be utilized to describe the
motion of a photon through space, at a rate of c, by simply regarding the motion of a photon to be the result of the
photon following the contraction of the space between the position of the photon and a position at a distance equal to
the base radius of the Universe in a particular direction. Consequently it can be stated that the space between any point
in space and any other point in space located at a distance equal to the base radius of the Universe in any direction will
contract at a rate of Planck’s length per Planck’s time period, equal to c, the speed of light, and a free photon will follow
that contraction in a particular direction, also at a speed of c.

The motion described in terms of contraction above can also be described in terms of an oscillating motion parallel to
the direction of propagation. The oscillation would have an amplitude equal to Planck's length, a wavelength equal to 2
times Planck's length and a period equal to 2 times Planck's time. This can be understood in terms of contraction as an
increase in the rate of contraction in the direction of propagation for 1 Planck unit of time alternating with a reduced rate
of contraction in the opposite direction for a period of 1 Planck unit of time, this resulting in an average velocity of c for
the photon.

The above describes the motion of a photon relative to a static position of in space in terms of the overall contraction of
the space of the Universe. The static position of space and matter can also be described in terms of the overall
contraction rate of the Universe by introducing an alternating direction of contraction, this alternation in direction of
contraction occurring over a period equal to Planck’s time. By alternating the direction of contraction of a point in space,
that point then can simply be considered to vibrate across a static position.  This is also the situation for photons
captured in a matter state.

This alternating contraction creates a direction of contraction that can be considered to be orthogonal to all the
directions in which free photons move. This orthogonal direction can be considered to possess a length equal to the
radius of the Universe, though this length is “folded” by the it’s alternating nature. The extreme example of this is
revealed in the Universe as a "singularities".  There are other manifestations of the presence of this orthogonal
direction, though always in combination with the "normal" directions of space. These parallel the micro-dimensions of
string theory.

The orthogonal direction can be best described in terms of an analogy. If we considered “normal” space to be
represented by a deck of cards laid length-wise end to end so that if each card is considered of unit length one, the
total length of the line of cards will be 52. The orthogonal direction would then be represented by those 52 cards
“stacked” one upon another, again this representing the folded over nature of the orthogonal direction. Space can then
be considered to consist of the combination of the two orthogonal directions. If the “depth” of the “stacked” direction is
2, then the length of the “normal” direction would be 26, while if the depth is 4, the normal length would be 13.
Alternating directions of contraction can also be used to describe an expansion-contraction action of a fundamental unit
of space with a size based upon Planck’s length. This does not necessarily mean that space can be considered to have
“substance” per say, as this expansion-contraction can be considered to describe variations in the relative position and
size of an empty volume of space, but we can say that this is the space that gravity acts upon, or alters. Taking a
spherical volume of space with a radius equal to Planck’s length, we can say that over a period of time it’s radius
expands to 2 times Planck’s length then contracts to 1 time Planck’s length, keeping in mind that Planck‘s length itself is
contracting with time according to the contraction hypothesis. This expanding and contracting sphere can be described
in terms of an expanding-contracting circle which, over the period of the expansion-contraction cycle, spins on two
perpendicular axis’, one for convenience sake labeled north and south, the other east and west. The circle itself can
then be described in terms of a rotating vector which expands and contracts in size between 1 and 2 Planck lengths
over one cycle period of rotation. In addition we can say that the period of the expansion and contraction of the length
of the vector can vary such that it’s period of expansion and contraction is an eignvalue of the rotational period, thus
equal to 1/n of the rotational period, where n is a whole number value. Also, it must be remembered that the origin of the
vector describing this expanding-contracting sphere is oscillating in the manner described previously for a static point in
space.

The surface of the sphere just described in terms of a rotating vector can be considered to represent an expansion-
contraction fold, or riff. This riff in some ways can be paralleled to the basic vibrating string of string theory. As stated
earlier, though, with the contraction approach we discover that there are extended aspects to this riff, or string, and
these extended aspects connect each riff to every other riff in the physical Universe.

The structure for space described above can be used to define three basic "realms of action"; one being space-time, on
which gravity acts, another being the realm of the electro-magnetic force, and the third being the realm where matter
forms and nuclear forces operate. Describing these realms in terms of relative sizes and frequencies reveals a
fundamental relationship between the age and size of the Universe and Planck's time period, and gravitational, nuclear
and electro-magnetic forces.

Referring back to the description of space in terms of a "normal" and an "orthogonal" direction, in the “normal” direction
space can be considered to have a length equal to approximately 7.8 x 10^60 Planck lengths, while in the orthogonal
direction, which I’ll refer to as space’s depth, this “normal” space can be said to have a depth of “1”. The extreme
opposite condition for a segment of space would be that it have the maximum "depth", equal to 7.8 x 10^60, and a
"normal" length equal to 1 Planck length. From this description of space we can define particular “special conditions” for
space based upon the square root of the base frequency of the Universe, 7.8 x 10^60, and these special conditions
create the realms of action mentioned earlier. A realm of space based upon the of the base frequency of the Universe
would have a radius of approximately the sq. rt. of 7.8 x 10^60 times Planck’s length, this equal to approx. 4.5 x 10^-5 m,
and a “depth” equal to 2.8 x10^30 (the sq. rt. of 7.8 x 10^60).

These realms of action are related to particular contraction rates derived from the basic contraction factor of 1/ Ut,
(approx. 1/7.8x10^60). As stated previously, the contraction hypothesis states that all space and entities within the
Universe should be considered to be contracting relative to the overall size of the Universe.  Thus any length within the
Universe is contracting at the rate of L/Ut per (ptu)^2 where L is the length considered in terms of number of Planck
lengths and Ut is the number of Planck time units that have past since the beginning of the Universe. This then means
that a length equal to the base radius of the Universe contracts at a rate of c (which is equal to Planck’s length per
Planck’s time period).   Also, though, the size of space between two points separated by half the base radius of the
Universe will contract at a rate of c/2, and the size of space between two points separated by 1/3 the radius of the
Universe will contract at a rate of c/3, ect.  However, it is also possible to use different contraction factors to produce a
contraction rate of c. By reducing the length considered and increasing the rate of contraction by an equal factor, the
result will still be a contraction rate of c. If we use one over the square root of Ut (this equal to approx. 1/2.8x10^30) as
the contraction factor instead of 1/Ut, this increasing the instantaneous rate of contraction (decreasing ptu increases
the rate of contraction), but also reducing the length of space being contracted by a factor of one over the square root
of Ut, thus from a size equal to the radius of the Universe to approximately 10^-5 m, a velocity of c is still produced by
the contraction.  As I will explain more later, these lengths and contraction factors define the realms of action where the
various types of energy operate; with the approximately 1/10^60 factor defining the realm of space-time (length equal to
the radius of the Universe) on which gravity acts, and the 1/10^30 factor (length equal to approximately 10^-5 meters)
defining the realm of electro-magnetic and nuclear force .




                                                     b.  Photon structure


In regards to the structure of a photon, though ultimately the complete picture of a photon will reveal that on a certain
level it is spread out in every direction into all the space-time of the Universe, for now it can be said that the structure of
a photon is the same as that given earlier for a spherical unit of space itself, with the difference being that the origin of
the vector representing a photon moves in a particular direction relative to the center point of the stationary spatial
sphere, at c.  Consequently a photon’s expansion-contraction can be referred to as a displaced spatial expansion-
contraction.  The center point and the perimeter point of the sphere representing a photon can be represented by a
rotating vector which can be divided into the two directional dimensions perpendicular to that of motion.  With Planck's
time unit considered to be a fundamental time quanta, the perimeters described above by the rotating vectors can be
considered to represent an expansion-contraction fold, or riff, which exists as a whole unit over the period of one time
quanta, equal to Planck's time.  This riff can also be said to be similar to the basic vibrating string of string theory.

As stated, there are extended aspects of a photon.  The mechanism for connecting the core of the photon with these
extended aspects of the photon is time acceleration.  It is actually time accelerated aspects of the core of the photon
that are extended through space, giving the photon wavelike characteristics, with larger time accelerations creating
greater extension, larger wavelengths and reduced energies.  Hypothetically, the least time accelerated photon possible
would be one with a period equal to Planck's time, thus a wavelength equal to Planck's length.  In this case all
measurable energy aspects of the photon are concentrated in a minimal amount of space, this producing the most
energetic photon.  As with conventional physics, Planck's constant per time period defines the energy of a proton, thus
if we say that time acceleration increases the period of a photon's position oscillation relative a base oscillation period of
Planck's time, any photon's energy can be described in terms of a corresponding time acceleration.

The origin of the vector described above will move at an average velocity of c, average because there is an oscillating
motion associated with the origin's motion, this oscillation in a +/- direction of the photon's velocity. This oscillating
motion is distinct from the rotation of the vectors just described as a riff, since, as stated, this is an oscillation of the
origin of the fundamental rotating vector describing the riff.  This oscillation, which I’ll refer to as the photon's position
oscillation, corresponds with a photon's characteristic wavelength and frequency normally associated with it's energy
and described by the equation v=E/h, where E is the photons energy, h is Planck's constant and v is the photon's
frequency, and the wavelength equals the wave c/v. This description of this oscillation is simplistic in that it is not taking
into account the quantum nature of a photon's motion. This aspect of a photon's motion is not yet relevant to this
depiction of a photon and is addressed in the section on quantum phenomena.

The photon oscillation distributes the core of the photon, that is, the displaced spatial expansion-contraction that is the
core of a photon, through space. This distribution, described by the photon’s wavelength (c/frequency), partly
determines the energy of the photon.  Basically, the energy of a photon is determined by the concentration over time of
the basic expanding-contracting riff (the core of the photon) in an area of space, this concentration revealed by the
wave associated with the photon.

A photon's energy is determined by it's vector origin's rate of oscillation and the amplitude of the wave, with a maximum
period of oscillation equal to the age of the Universe, this for a photon with minimum possible energy, and with all other
possible periods being an Eigenvalues of this period. Also, these other periods will represent multiples of the period of
the fundamental photon oscillation (equal to Planck‘s time).

With this description of a photon, the energy of a photon can be understood to be the result of the potential that exists
in the rotating vector previously described, with this vector divided into electric and magnetic aspects, and also the
contraction action that exists in spatial contraction (the individual units of space) which is related to the potential that
exists between any point in space and the other points in space that are located a distance equal to the basic radius of
the Universe from that point, this producing the velocity of c for the photon.                                                     




                                    c.  Matter structure, EMF and nuclear forces

To describe the matter state, the velocity c associated with a photon should be described in terms of a unique oscillating
motion, thus a third oscillation, which I’ll refer to as the matter oscillation. This oscillation is distinct from the photon
oscillation, and the photon oscillation still exists even when a photon is in the matter state. The matter oscillation period
is related to matter's "realm of action".

As explained earlier, there is a "realm of action" for matter, this intrinsic to the structure of space. The basic length of
space from which the space for basic matter oscillations is derived is described by the secondary contraction factor of
1/square root of Ut, approximately equal to 1/1x10^30. This length is on the order of 10^-5 meters in length.  When this
length is divided by the 4th root of Ut (approximately 1x10^15) and then multiplied by the eighth root of Ut (approx.
1x10^7.5) and then divided by the 16th root of Ut (approx.1x103.75) the result is a length on the order of 10^-16.25m,
approximately equal to radius of an electron.  By continuing the sequence of alternately multiplying and dividing the
square root of the previous factor the result is a length on the order of 10^-15m, approximately equal to the radius of
nucleons.

One of the consequences of the matter realms of action defined is the production of the electro-magnetic near-field
force.  Electro-magnetic near-field forces result from the orientation of contraction and expansion actions of charged
particles.  Charged particles of opposite charge expand and contract in phase, resulting in an attracting force, while
those of the same charge expand and contract out of phase, resulting in a repulsing force.

Increasing the mass of matter expands it's radius and reduces it's Compton wavelength.  For a nucleon the Compton
wavelength and radius are approximately equal in length, on the order of 10^-15m. This is also the radius of one of the
realms of action described above for matter. Matter in this state becomes capable of forming nuclear bonds.  In the
contraction approach this occurs because the concentration of matter reaches a critical point, where the Compton
wavelength and the size of the matter realm of action become approximately equal. The reason for this because of the
expanding and contracting nature of reality.  Once the oscillating frequency of the particle of matter increases to a
critical point, this determined by the size of matter's realm of action, the oscillations interact in a unique way, essentially
inverting expansion and contraction. This causes them to become, in a sense, turned inside out  creating a different
"shape" for the realm of action. The fundamental sphere of this space has a radius on the order of 1x10^-15 meters.
The surface of the sphere representing a quark of the nucleon becomes the “points of contraction” for the photons
comprising the nucleon.  Basically the interior of a quark expands toward it's own perimeter while the sphere
representing nucleon contracts toward the perimeter of the quark.






                                              IV.  Quantum Relativity


The great paradox of special relativity is that two observers in relative motion to each other perceive reality very
differently.  The key concepts that describe this difference are  time dilation and length contraction, with the observer
considered to be in motion necessarily needing to be considered to be observing reality under the influence of a time
dilation and length contraction, even though the observer in motion himself does not perceive these, instead perceiving
himself to be experiencing time and size normally and the other observer to be in motion.  This approach successfully
explains why the velocity of light in a vacuum is observed to be constant by all observers in all reference frames.
Special Relativity Theory assumes that each observer perceives light as moving at a constant velocity, c, with time
dilation and length contraction explaining the different perceptions of the same events by observers in relative motion.  
Applying a time dilation and a length contraction to a system in motion is necessary if we are to say that the velocity light
is constant in all reference frames since it is clear from the perspective of a motionless observer that the movement of
an observer in motion changes that observers position relative to free light particles as compared to their positions
relative to the motionless observer.

With the contraction approach there is another way to understanding this paradox, a way that opens up many new
possibilities.  At first glance there is an apparent contradiction between the concepts of a constant and a contracting
speed for light.  There is a simple explanation for this in regards to the speed of light in the past relative to the present.  
We never perceive the actual past of anything, only the present condition of what was in the past, and anything from the
past, including the speed of light, contracts to the present.  Explaining time dilation is slightly more complicated, but the
explanation opens up a deeper understanding of the mechanics of physical reality.

According to the contraction approach, in terms of the velocity of light past frames are larger than present frames.   A
dilated reference frame, while not the same as a past frame, can be correlated to past frames.  It can be said that a time
dilation by a factor of u corresponds to a past frame in which the internal size of space, as measured by the velocity of
light, is larger in size relative to the presents size by a factor of u, since in that time dilated frame less time, by a factor of
1/u, has past relative to the non-dilated frame, so the frame is less contracted.  Thus it seems that a dilated frame
should have a greater velocity of light than a non-dilated frame, by a factor of u.  However, the space of this larger
dilated frame will have a faster rate of contraction than the present frame, by a factor of u, so in the context of the non-
dilated frame, where time moves faster by a factor of u than in the dilated frame, the dilated frame will appear to be the
same size as the non-dilated frame (this is an example of overall size contraction).  We can now say that the frame of
the observer in motion undergoes a contraction in size and in velocity of light in all directions by a factor of 1/u relative
to what should be a larger (by a factor of u) past frame, and this is why a non-dilated motionless observer perceives a
dilated frame as he does.  Below I illustrate this.
















According to the contraction approach, in the diagram above (a) represents the size of space after 2 units of times have
passed since unity, internal size of space being measured in terms of the velocity of light and represented by the space
between the red lines relative to overall size, or unity, this represented by the black circle.  In the diagram (b) represents
the internal size of space after (4) units of times have passed since unity, measured in terms of the velocity of light and
represented by the space between the red lines, relative to overall size, or unity, represented by the black circle.  Both
these figures reflect a normal, non-dilated rate of time.  In the diagram (c) represents what (a) represents but in a
dilated condition, with time moving more slowly by a factor of 2.  The velocity of light, thus internal size, remains the
same, though here represented by less space between the red segments because less time, by a factor of 1/2, will have
passed.  However, overall size, represented by the black circle at (c) is contracted by a factor of 1/2 relative to the circle
at (a), this a consequence of time dilation.  Time dilation does not allow overall size to expand to it's normal size in a
normal time condition.  The black circle in diagram (d) represents a further, apparent contraction of the overall size of
the dilated frame, this caused by the velocity of the dilated frame relative to the non-dilated frame.  I say apparent
because as I show in the next section overall size is not actually contracted but instead displaced, through the velocity
vector.  The apparent further contraction is by a factor of 1/2 in directions perpendicular to the motion of the dilated
frame and a factor of 1/2^2 in directions parallel to motion.  In this situation the internal size of space as measured by
the velocity of light and represented by the space between the red segments is also apparently contracted, by a factor
of 1/u in all directions.

The above depiction represents reality as perceived from the perspective of an observer in a non-dilated reference
frame.  The next issue is "how is it possible that the observer in motion perceives himself to be in a non-dilated frame
motionless frame?"  This issue is related to another issue with relativity that I believe has not been adequately explored.  
Is it  possible that while current interpretations of relativity theory properly describe one's perceptions of entities in
relative motion and also the perceptions of observers in moving reference frames, it does not in itself sufficiently
describe actual positions of entities within space-time.  In other words, do current interpretations of relativity simply
describe variations in an observer's perceptions of entities and photons in motion, while an entity's and photon's actual
positions in space-time are determined by and properly described relative to some preferred reference frame, this
preferred frame itself structured in such a way that observers in motion relative to it will perceive themselves to be in a
non-dilated state?

This issue arises because Relativity says that observers in motion relative to each other will at any given time usually
have different determinations for the position of photons propagated from themselves as compared to the other
observer's determinations, this meaning that they each will have unique and exclusive non-dilated versions of reality.  
This then implies that each observers non-dilated perceptions of reality must be given equal weight, or importance, in
determining actual positions of entities and photons in space-time, this leading to the conclusion that motion, and thus
positions, must only be considered in strictly relative, and not absolute, terms.  I propose that there is an interpretation
of relativity concepts such that a single primary non-dilated frame can be determined to exist.

According to Relativity Theory, even though a motionless observer will perceive a moving observer to be in a dilated
frame the moving observer himself will perceive  time in a non-dilated way since he perceives others as moving relative
to him.  According to this new approach what the person in the moving frame perceives is not an authentic independent
non-dilated frame but instead an altered perception of the dilated frame that they are perceived to be in by the
motionless observer, who is in a unique primary non-dilated frame.  It is the discontinuous nature of space, a quantum
concept, that makes this interpretation possible.
















The diagram above shows the differences in perceptions of two observers in relative motion.  An observer at position
(a) who considers himself to be stationary would perceive another observer moving to the left in the diagram at a
velocity of approximately .867 c to be situated at position (b) after 1 second.  If the observer moving toward (b) projects
a beam of light in a direction perpendicular to motion just as he passes (a) the observer at (a) will perceive that beam to
follow a path from (a) to (c) over one second, while the observer at (b), according to the observer at (a), will perceive
the beam of light to have moved from just from (b) to (c).  Also, over the same period, a beam of light projected by the
motionless observer at (a) in a direction perpendicular to motion will be perceived by that observer the to have moved
from (a) to (d).  When the observer at (b) is considered to be stationary and the one at (a) to be in motion, the positions
and paths outlined in red in the diagram apply.  The observer at (b) will perceive a beam of light released in a direction
perpendicular to motion by a moving observer at (a) just as he passes (b) to follow a path from (b) to (f), while,
according to the observer at (b), the observer at (a) perceives the beams path as extending from (a) to (f).  Also, over
the same period of time, a beam of light projected by the motionless observer at (b) in a direction perpendicular to
motion will be perceived by the observer at (b) to have moved from (a) to (e).  Clearly each observer in their own non-
dilated frame perceives the propagated photons to be in different positions as compared to the others perceptions.  The
conventional interpretation is that an observer considered to be in motion perceives a co-moving non-dilated reference
frame.

As stated, there is an alternative to the conventional understanding of this situation.  According to this alternative
explanation, there is a preferred non-dilated frame of reference which defines the actual positions of the photons, while
observers in all other possible alternative non-dilated frames simply perceive a varied, or distorted, version of the
positions of these photons.  This distortion can be described in the following way.  By assuming that spatial lengths and
directions are altered for the observer considered to be in motion, this distortion caused by the motion relative to a
primary motionless frame, it is possible to accommodate a non-dilated version of that moving dilated frame within the
same space as that dilated frame, thus making it unnecessary to define unique positions for photons propagated from
bodies in that dilated state.  The "missing" size (a consequence of time dilation) is actually manifested in the velocity
vector of the moving frame.  We can say that the non-dilated version of the moving dilated fame is "spread" through the
velocity vector.  The velocity vector "displaces" space from the frame of the moving observer.  This space exists in the
velocity vector, but this space is not observed as displaced by the moving observer because what he observes appears
to him as a continuous linear version of the displaced space.  This linear version is perceived by him to be his normal
non-dilated frame.  This interpretation is possible if one accepts that space-time has a discrete nature.  This discrete
nature is clearly seen when one considers space as contracting, as explained early, but is also implied in the presently
well accepted concept of spatial inflation.

Quantisizing space entails dividing space into ordered segments and recognizing that distances can be contracted and
expanded in a dilated frame by altering the positions and angle of orientation of the segmented space relative to their
positions in a motionless non-dilated frame.  These altered distances can be accounted for by including the velocity
vector of the moving frame as a factor in measuring lengths in each direction, this restoring length in all directions to
lengths equal to the lengths of the non-dilated motionless frame.











Referring to the diagram above, as explained earlier, the line segment from (b) to (c) represents the path that a
motionless observer believes a moving observer would perceive for a beam of light propagated from (b) as he moves
from (a) to (b).  However, the observer at (b) would consider himself to be motionless and any beam of light he
propagate from himself would, in this case, end up twice the length of the (b)(c) segment from himself.  As explained
earlier, this extra length perceived by (b) will actually exist in the direction of motion.  The actual path of the photons
perceived by the observer at (b) are the angled line segment (each on the order of Planck's length) shown in red,
though he doesn't perceive them as angled.  The sum of the length of red segments equal the length from (a) to (c).  As
the angle of distortion increases with increased motion all perceptions of reality  increasing become contained in
directions equal to and opposite to that of motion.

We must now consider perceptions of a moving observer in directions equal to and opposite to it's motion.  Referring to
the diagram below, for a person in a moving dilated frame, represented by (b), perceptions of photon motions in the
same direction as his motion is expanded relative to the perceptions of a motionless observer (at (a)) because of a
perceived "stacking" of the segments of space in that direction.  An analogy of this concept can be seen by comparing a
deck of playing cards laid end to end, with this representing  space in a normal non-dilated frame, to another deck of
cards that are stacked upon each other, this representing the perception of the space through which light moves in the
direction of motion by an observer in motion.  The sum of the lengths of the stacked cards equals the total length of the
cards layered end to end, though the stacked cards can be contained in a much smaller amount of space.    This is
represented by the thick red line in the diagram below.





















In the opposite direction for the moving observer perception is "contracted" relative to the motionless observer's through
the spreading of the sections of space through space.  This is represented in the diagram by the red line segments
separated by spaces.

In all directions all perceptions of the velocity of photons a moving observer can be described by a combination the
descriptions of perceptions of perpendicular and parallel propagation given above.  Below I illustrate this












.



In the diagram above, when an observer moves from (a) to (b) he will perceive that a beam of light released by another
observer at (a) just as he passes (a) will appear to move along a path from (b) to (c), this because in his eyes observer
(a) is in motion while he himself is stationary.  According to the contraction approach though what he actually sees is a
discontinuous angled series of path segments from (b) to (d), represented in the diagram in red, with the sum of the
lengths of these segments equal to the length between (b) and (c), this because in the contraction approach presented
here there is a single primary frame which determines all actual relative positions for propagated photons in all
reference frames and moving observers perceive distorted versions of these positions.  Thus, what the moving observer
sees in the diagram above is simply a distorted version of the path between (b) and (d).

The interpretation described above supports the assertion that past reference frames are in fact larger than the present
frame, with their larger size relative to an authentic motionless non-dilated frame concealed in an orthogonal dimension
contained within the motion vector of the moving entity.  This is because when we, as a motionless observer, recognize
the "extra space" created by the motion of the dilated frame as described above we must also then must acknowledge
the expanded nature of a dilated frame and of the past.  This expanded nature of the past is actually also revealed in
two other ways; the increased mass of matter in a dilated state because of motion,  and the increased velocity of objects
in motion when that velocity is considered in terms of dilated time.

If the above descriptions reflect the true nature of perceptions in space-time, then there must be some type of
connecting mechanism between spatial segments.  This connecting mechanism can be found in another concept unique
to contraction physics; time contraction (acceleration). The following is a description of this concept.

A consequence of the contraction approach to relativity concepts is that it is possible to describe what is the opposite of
dilated time reference frames, that is, contracted (accelerated) time reference frames.  Contracted time reference
frames are possible with the contraction approach because with the contracting nature of things a new reference point
exists;  the size of the past, present and future reality of an entity.  Since the past and the future is differentiated from
each other and from the present by size and rates of contraction, motion can no longer be considered as simply relative
to other entities but must also be considered in terms of positions and size relative to the past of an entity.

In regards to accelerated time reference frames, just as before when I described dilated frames, in terms of contraction
there seems to be a contradiction between the concept of contracting frames, which implies that future frames are
relatively smaller, and the expansion caused by time acceleration. The reasoning that resolves this apparent paradox is
the same as that which explains the contracted nature of dilated frames.  Since future frames are smaller, their
contraction rates relative to a normal present frame are less, and this can cause a relative expansion, not in the size of
the accelerated frame as measured in terms of it's velocity of light but in terms of it's dispersion into the space of the
present frames.  This concept can be paralleled to our presently accepted understanding of the rapid expansion of
space at the beginning of the Universe, where the velocity of light does not increase with the expansion, even though
the Universe is expanding faster than the speed of light, but instead, pockets of space inflate, causing the rapid
expansion.

Accelerated time reference frames have the opposite characteristics to those of dilated frames.  Time is accelerated,
length is expanded and mass is diminished.  In terms of the contraction approach it also means that the overall size is
expanded and the internal size of space, as measured by the velocity of light is contracted.  Below i illustrate this.










In the diagram above the space within the parenthesis  at (a) represents the overall size of space in a normal non-
dilated time reference frame while the two line segments within the parenthesis represent the velocity of light.  The
space and line segments within the parenthesis at (b) represent the overall size of space and velocity of light
respectively in a time reference frame which is accelerated by a factor of two relative to the normal frame represented at
(a).  As stated before, accelerated time reference frames have characteristics that are opposite to those of dilated time
reference frames.   Overall size is expanded while internal size as measured by the velocity if light is contracted in size.
With the concept of accelerated time reference frames three characteristics of nature can be explained.  The "dark"
energy that drives "inflation" can now be understood as simply anti-gravity caused by time acceleration.  Also, the
connecting element necessary to unite segmented space as was mentioned earlier can be understood to be simply
extremely time accelerated particles.  These particles can have almost no mass (sub-Planckian) and can travel almost
instantaneously through any expanse of space because of the nature of time acceleration, where increases in the
degree of time acceleration will reduce mass and expand a particle's possible positions in space.  And finally, these
particles can be described as pilot particles which ultimately determine positions and mass of sub-atomic particles,
revealing a deterministic solution for quantum related problems.









                                         V.   Time Accelerated Quantum Mechanics



The explanations in the previous sections of this work regarding the preferred and accelerated time reference frames
lead to a new possibility for describing quantum phenomena.  Conventional interpretations of special relativity assume
that the only position determinations that can be physically verified are those made by the observer in the relevant
motionless non-dilated frame.  However, this presumes that the observer can perceive only observations which are
unique to his own frame, ignoring the possibility that accelerated time reference frames can in a manner influence the
velocities and positions of entities as perceived by a motionless observer. I now propose that position determinations on
the sub-atomic scale must be made relative to a preferred reference frame, and these positions will include the
influence of accelerated time reference frames. Accepting that this is the case, it then becomes possible to account for
the quantum nature of motion using the concept of time acceleration. Essentially, the premise is that at microscopic
distances velocity and position determinations are influenced by two extra reference frames, these being a time
reference frame that is accelerated relative to the dilated frame, this creating an alternative non-dilated frame, and also,
a "stretched out" space-time reference frame that is accelerated relative to both the motionless non-dilated frame and
the moving alternative non-dilated frames. Consequently, the complete a picture of a moving mass particle must include
it's dilated state, it's alternative non-dilated state, and it's accelerated state, all existing simultaneously, and all
simultaneously determining the positions and energy of sub-atomic particles.

Earlier I explained how a frame that is accelerated relative to a non-dilated frame can be understood to be spread out
as compared to a non-dilated frame. In that explanation it was presumed that the accelerated frame simply had a linear
motion relative to the non-dilated frame, but this is not necessarily the case. I propose that on the sub-atomic scale
accelerated and non-accelerated reference frames should be considered to move in an oscillating motion relative to
each other, these oscillations defined relative to the point within the non-dilated frame where there exists zero motion
relative to the accelerated frame. This oscillatory relationship reflects the fact that the space of an accelerated frame is
simultaneously "stretched" in size and "folded" in shape relative to the space of a non-dilated reference frame. I propose
that this oscillating motion is in fact in a manner observed from the perspective of an observer in the motionless non-
dilated frame, and the observable results are what we now consider to be the consequences of quantum phenomena.
These observed variations in the positions of sub-atomic particles should actually be understood to be the result of the
existence of both alternative non-dilated reference frames and accelerated time reference frames, and it is because of
the nature and structure of space-time as determined by contraction that these accelerated frames exist and become
relevant frames of reference for determining the positions of sub-atomic particles.

In regards to a particle's total mass-energy as measured when it is considered to be in an accelerated frame as
compared to a non-dilated or dilated frame, it's rest mass in terms of an accelerated frame will be less than it's rest
mass as measured in terms of a non-dilated and dilated frame. However, because the particle is moving faster relative
to the accelerated frame as compared to the non-dilated frame, energy is added by this extra motion, and consequently
it's total mass-energy as measured from the accelerated frame is the same as that measured from the non-dilated frame.

The fact that a particle which is defined as being in an accelerated state has a velocity relative to the zero-velocity of the
relevant accelerated time reference frame explains why a time acceleration for the particle is not easily detected from
the perspective of a non-accelerated, non-dilated frame.  The velocity relative to the zero-point velocity of the relevant
accelerated frame puts the particle in a dilated state relative to that frame.  This time dilation counters the time
acceleration, and the result is a time state that approximates the original dilated state of the particle.  The difference
between a particle in this combination accelerated-dilated state and a particle in a simple conventional dilated state is
reflected in both measured energy and position variations, these normally attributed to quantum phenomena.

The concept of a particle state being defined as a combination of an accelerate and dilated state parallels the concept
introduced in the previous section on special relativity which revealed that the distribution of matter within the Universe
is determined by a multitude of non-dilated frames, and not just the non-dilated frame of a particular observer.

The variations in position due to the oscillating motion between an accelerated frame and a non-dilated frame as
previously described can be made to be consistent with the variations predicted by the probability wave of quantum
theory to a degree, but the explanation above still doesn't provide a complete solution though, because of the non-
localized condition that is observed for particles under certain conditions. The solution to this problem lays in a proper
understanding the structure of frames that are accelerated relative to a non-dilated frames, as determined by the
contraction approach to understanding space-time, which shows that accelerated frames are actually expanded relative
to non-dilated frames. This is not a straight forward expansion though, as there is a contraction associated with it. The
best way to conceive of this is to view space in terms of individual units laid end to end, with these units contracting in
size, but also separating from each other, as they enter into a time acceleration. In a particular way, space "breaks up"
and separates when it is accelerated relative to the normal non-dilated time reference frame. This separation exists only
from the perspective of someone in the normal non-accelerated frame though, since from the perspective of someone in
the accelerated frame space remains continuous, since for this observer this frame is the normal reference frame.

With the above explanation there are now have two aspects of time acceleration, one aspect measured relative to a
dilated time frame, this producing an alternative non-dilated frame and the local variations in the expected positions for
microscopic particles, while the other aspect is measured relative to the normal non-dilated frame, this manifested as a
seeming discontinuity in space when perceived from the perspective of the non-dilated frame, though space is still
continuous from the perspective of an observer in the accelerated frame.  Ultimately this leads to the description of a
particle in terms of two distinct parts, or aspects, one part being that which is substantially measured, and which
partakes in the previously mentioned oscillating motion, and the other part being a type of ghost particle that can only
be indirectly measured, but which indicates, like a pilot wave, where a particle will manifest itself in the future. A proper
way to picture this is to see that while the measurable part of the particle goes through a cycle of oscillations at the local
level at a particular position in space during the period of that cycle, the ghost particle moves to another point in space
(or the same point under some conditions) as determined by it's accelerated state. At the end of the period of the cycle
of local oscillations the measurable aspect of particle disintegrates at it's current position while beginning another cycle
of oscillation at the new location as determined by the ghost particle.

In regards to mass-energy, we can say that the ghost particle has an undetectable minuscule mass (possibly sub-
Planck based), with it's measure based upon the accelerated time reference frame associated with it.  This ghost
particle actually represents the non-dilated version of the particle that is produced by it's accelerated condition.
Consequently, though the ghost particle moves relative to an observer in the normal non-dilated frame, in terms of this
accelerated frame it is motionless. This means that any actual particle that we in a non-dilated reference frame observe
in motion is also moving at a certain velocity relative to this accelerated frame's motionless position as represented by
the ghost particle.  It is this motion that produces the variability in the mass-energy of sub-atomic particles that we
observe in measurements of the particle made from the perspective of a non-dilated frame.

Time accelerations and non-dilated versions of dilated frames reveal themselves in the quantum variations in position
and mass-energy we observe in sub-atomic particles.  With the time accelerations just described we should be able to
exactly account for all variations in positions and energy for microscopic particles as observed from the perspective of
an observer in a non-dilated frame, including the seemingly discontinuous changes.
