DEFINTIONS
SECTION 0

The deduction of the unit matter substructure of Standard Model fundamental particles allowed for a clear distinction to be made between units of matter and units of energy as components of the Universe. The permanent nature of the units of matter caused the deduction of the background of matter which was deduced to fill the known Universe.

NOTE

The deduction of the background of matter is correct only if it does not run counter to known physics. The author does not believe the existence of a background of pure matter contradicts either special relativity or general relativity. A contradiction with the known physics of relativity would mean something was wrong with the deduction of the background of matter.


DEFINITION OF SPACE

The logical conclusion of the Universe being filled with particles of pure matter is that the fundamental building blocks of space actually are the three dimensional units of matter which compose the background particles.

Space is defined by the background of matter.

DEFINITION OF TIME

Energy is conserved over time, ultimately meaning that units of energy are neither created nor destroyed over time.

The deduction of the matter substructure allows for the distinction to be made between matter as the space component and energy as the time component of the universe.

Time is proposed to be defined by the progression of energy, the rotation of energy about a unit matter host.

Time is defined by the progression of energy.



SPECIAL RELATIVITY
SECTION 1

THE SPEED OF LIGHT

E=m c2


Maxwell's equations defined an absolute speed for electromagnetic propagation. Einstein followed the implications of an absolute speed for the propagation of light, and solved the mathematical equations based on the absolute speed of light producing the Special Theory of Relativity.

With the knowledge of the background of matter and the unit particle of matter substructure, the explanation of why the speed of light is the speed it is, is because that is the speed with which the electromagnetic fields propagate in a vacuum as is thought, but a level deeper it is the fastest a structure of matter and energy (a particle) can propagate through the background as it is a structure with zero internal structural energy.

Photons are 100% momentum energy particles with no rest mass because of their doublet substructure. The maximum momentum energy can travel through the background of matter is when it is hosted on a massless doublet substructure.

A particle which has no rest mass propagates through the background ocean at the greatest speed possible because the it has no closed loop to add drag.

The speed of light is the rate with which energy (charge) and the background of matter (magnetic flux) interact.

Photons travel at the speed of light because they have no rest mass, photons are 100% momentum energy and that is the speed with which energy and the background of matter interact.

The speed of light is the speed with which the momentum energy of a massless photon travels through the background of matter.


Mass Increases with Velocity

The equation E=mc2 also dictates that the length of the particle in the direction of travel decreases with increased velocity. The decrease in length is envisioned by picturing the compression of the electrical field of the particle along the line of travel due to the pressure of the background field particles.

Rest mass is structural energy in which the flow of the energy is closed back on itself in a closed path. Momentum energy is energy that is involved in motion in a particular direction through the background field. Momentum energy is not structural, it is additional energy, kinetic energy.


Time Dilation




GENERAL RELATIVITY
SECTION 2

Curvature of Spacetime and the Geometry of the Background of Matter

Einstein's General Theory of Relativity views the fabric of space-time as being responsible for the local gravitational field. Einstein's General Theory of Relativity predicts that the fabric of space-time expands and contracts.

The General Theory of Relativity describes the geometry of the spacetime as being determined by the presence of mass.

It is not just the presence of mass that general relativity takes into account, but the dynamics of the motion of the mass.

Einstein's geometric fabric of spacetime is proposed to describe the background ocean and its 'geometry' under the influence of the presence of mass.

Einstein's mass is unit energy particles and his curvature of spacetime is proposed to define the dynamics of the background of matter.

It is proposed that Einstein's General Theory of Relativity describes the geometry of the background ocean of matter as determined by the presence of mass-energy.
