How the Space-Time as a Field of Mass Reconciles Quantum and Classical Mechanics


  • F. Barbiero



The invariance of the speed of light in RFs in relative motion between them is a clear indication of the nature of space-time. Lorenz's transformation equations were obtained by analysing the propagation of a single ray of light in a single direction and therefore are valid only for that single case. A set of general transformation equations can be obtained by analysing the propagation of an omnidirectional flash of light emitted by a source in motion with respect to a stationary observer. According to these equations, motion generates a spatial component normal to the velocity v and to the coordinates (x, y, z) of the source’s RF, displacing it into an “imaginary” fourth dimension for a value v/c, thus reducing its "density" by a ratio.  The density of a RF plays a major role in the perception of physical reality. In fact, two observers in motion between them, watching the same phenomenon, would measure different spaces and times, same velocities, but different acceleration and therefore different forces acting on the same object. The transformation equations show that motion modifies only the RF, i.e the space-time, of objects, but as we cannot separate them from their space, they too are modified by a component transverse to the motion, and their “density” is also reduced. If the object is an electric charge, the transverse component of its field is identified with the magnetic field, which induces attractive or repulsive (or nil) forces only on other charges in motion, depending on the angle between their velocities. The same happens for the motion of a mass, with the fundamental difference that a rotating mass, in addition to a gravito-magnetic field, produces a transverse field which lines of flux are parallel to the axis of rotation, and therefore it propagates indefinitely, without attenuation, inside a cylinder with the same diameter of the mass. This field has a critical importance if we assume that the space-time is a field of the mass, coinciding with its gravitational field. The space-time of the Earth-bound observer would be made by the sum of the gravitational fields of the surrounding atomic masses, plus that of the transverse fields generated by the motion of those same masses; the main part of it would be produced by a sort of “ether” formed by “quanta” of space-time generated by the rotation around themselves of the atomic components of the whole universe.  This would imply that the space-time at the atomic level is extremely "denser" than that at macroscopic level, therefore the Earth-bound observer would measure forces interacting amongst the atomic masses extremely higher than those calculated with Newton’s law. He will then be forced to postulate the existence of a mysterious agent, the electric charge, capable of developing those forces. With this assumption, instead, the atomic world would be populated only by masses subject, at their level, to gravitational and gravito-magnetic forces.  It will become similar to the macroscopic world.
