Asked 25th Oct, 2015

What is Negative energy?

"Two pieces of matter that are close to each other have less [positive] energy than the same two pieces a long way apart, because you have to expend energy to separate them against the gravitational force that is pulling them together," S. Hawking, "The Theory of Everything", New Millennium, 2002
Since it takes positive energy to separate the two pieces of matter, gravity must be using negative energy to pull them together. Thus, "the gravitational field has negative energy. In the case of a universe that is approximately uniform in space, one can show that this negative gravitational energy exactly cancels the positive energy represented by the matter. So the total energy of the universe is zero."
"If you drop a ball from rest (defined to be a state of zero energy), it gains energy of motion (kinetic energy) as it falls. But this gain is exactly balanced by a larger negative gravitational energy as it comes closer to Earth’s center, so the sum of the two energies remains zero." Alexei Filippenko and Jay Pasachoff, "A Universe From Nothing"
The universe as a whole can be compared to this ball. Initially, before the big bang, the universe-ball was at rest. Now, after the big bang, it is falling: light and matter exist, and they are moving. And yet, because of the negative energy built into the gravity field created by these particles, the total energy of the universe remains zero.
The question, then, is why the ball started falling in the first place. How did something - composed of equal positive and negative parts, mind you - come from nothing?
Physicists aren't exactly sure, but their best guess is that the extreme positive and negative quantities of energy randomly fluctuated into existence. "Quantum theory, and specifically Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, provide a natural explanation for how that energy may have come out of nothing," wrote Filippenko and Pasachoff.
They continued, "Throughout the universe, particles and antiparticles spontaneously form and quickly annihilate each other without violating the law of energy conservation. These spontaneous births and deaths of so-called 'virtual particle' pairs are known as 'quantum fluctuations.' Indeed, laboratory experiments have proven that quantum fluctuations occur everywhere, all the time."
Cosmologists have constructed a theory called inflation that accounts for the way in which a small volume of space occupied by a virtual particle pair could have ballooned to become the vast universe we see today. Alan Guth, one of the main brains behind inflationary cosmology, thus described the universe as "the ultimate free lunch."
In a lecture, Caltech cosmologist Sean Carroll put it this way: "You can create a compact, self-contained universe without needing any energy at all."

A modern perspective on the question of time directionality as it arises in a classical and quantum-mechanical context, based on key developments in the field of gravitational physics. Important clarifications are achieved regarding, in particular, the concepts of time reversal, negative energy, and time-symmetric causality. From this analysis emerges an improved understanding of the generalrelativistic concept of stress-energy of matter as being a manifestation of local variations in the energy density of zero-point vacuum fluctuations.

DEAR HOSSEIN,
This is the redshift which is proved by Hubble's law, and observed in the Pioneer anomaly.  According to my transformation I discovered a subgroup of the conformal group, a subgroup called dilations.  dilation was used by a researcher named Hill in 1946 I believe in a proposal to explain the Hubble redshift. This proposal is long dead of course (in part because the microwave background is a pretty strong indication that the early universe was hot and dense, so the expansion is real!!!! why observed as real?). Now I repeat this model again, and I understood what is the problem here. The problem is in objectivity in the Lorentz transformation. Reinterpretation of the Lorentz transformation according to Copenhagen school and the death of objectivity will resulted Heisenberg uncertainty and the wave-particle duality govern the motion in micro and macro world.  In fact the problem can be solved exactly by considering there is no space-time continuum and it is only time and space is invariant. That will lead and interpret the entanglement completely in case negative vacuum energy.

Is the Universe a Vacuum Fluctuation? EDWARD P. TRYON
The author proposes a big bang model in which our Universe is a fluctuation of the vacuum, in the sense of quantum field theory. The model predicts a Universe which is homogeneous, isotropic and closed, and consists equally of matter and anti-matter. All these predictions are supported by, or consistent with, present observations.
Due to quantum uncertainty, energy fluctuations such as an electron and its anti-particle, a positron, can arise spontaneously out of vacuum space, but must disappear rapidly. The lower the energy of the bubble, the longer it can exist. A gravitational field has negative energy. Matter has positive energy. The two values cancel out provided the universe is completely flat. In that case, the universe has zero energy and can theoretically last forever.
We can describe energy fluctuations of quantum vacuum without useing quantum uncertainty.
Shooting shot
I take a shot with mass m and shooting it with velocity v upward. Shot takes kinetic energy. The action of my hand on shot is applying force on it, only. In the other word, in during dt, n photons (as energy) leave my hand, convert to force and applies on shot, its momentum changes (Newton's second law). The photons enter into structure of shot and convert to energy again. So, shot takes kinetic energy equal 1/2 mv^2 to upward.
Generator
I do rotating the dynamo of a generator and produce electromagnetic energy. I apply force on dynamo and it rotates. The magnetic field of dynamo’s magnet does change. The electric charge of electrons in wires, those are around the dynamo doing opposite with changing the magnetic field. Then electromagnetic energy produces. How and why rotating dynamo produces electromagnetic energy?
My hand’s force does rotating the dynamo, only. In the other world, in during rotating dynamo my body’s energy changes to force, and force changes to mechanical energy. When the magnetic field changes, then electric field does change. Changing electric field does change the electron motion. But we know force is able to changing the motion of everything. So, electron takes gravitons (color-charges and magnetic color) and condenses them, and produces a quantum electromagnetic energy.
Is it possible we remove the force concept of physics?
Right side of Newton's second law is the rate of change of momentum per time, but left side refers to an invention concept that named force (which was inevitable at the time of Newton and classical mechanics). According to the above we can replace the force by changing the momentum of energy per time in the left side of Newton's second law equation.

"Dark energy works as a negative gravity." Yes. That's right.
A part of the radiations leaves the observable universe.
The escaping radiations carry energy that moves with the speed of light, so a part mass of observable universe leaves it.
According to the description of the debate, observable universe gets negative energy and its mass decreases.
Now the question arises: The reduction the mass of observable universe, does not reduce the gravity between objects?

One should be careful with quotations-what matters is the meaning of the words, not the exact quotations. There are many, only very roughly related, issues in the accompanying text. 
First of all energy can have any sign. The constraints on its sign come from the requirement that a matter configuration be stable under perturbations.  And the meaning of the sign is with respect to some reference. Such a reference doesn't exist in the absence of gravity. The only constraint  from stability then is that the energy of a physical system be bounded from below, i.e. possess a finite minimum  value. If it doesn't, then the system is unstable, with respect to the degrees of freedom used and new degrees of freedom must be found, that describe stable motion.
The ``ball falls'' can be described consistently by the statement that it follows a geodesic in the spacetime in question. If the spacetime is flat, then time translation invariance is a global symmetry and it's possible to define a quantity, called energy, that's conserved-it's the Noether charge of this symmetry of the equations of motion.  If the spacetime is curved, then time translation is a local symmetry and energy can only be defined at infinity, under assumptions.

There isn't any such concept as (quasi) negative gravity. And it's misleading to consider ``dark energy'' as a ``repulsive force'', since it doesn't act on any object, but describes spacetime, one way being through the cosmological constant, whose sign does have physical meaning; but both signs describe physically meaningful situations. The positive sign of the cosmological constant describes an accelerated expansion of spacetime.  However the negative sign of the cosmological constant does not describe an accelerated contraction.

No, the Casimir energy  is an example of energy *fluctuations*: it represents the *difference* between two values of energy and the difference  could have either sign.  Its sign  can, however,  be explained, e.g. http://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0611082
Since gravity-as described by general relativity-is a non-linear interaction, the sign of the energy is not as simple to understand as in the non-relativistic limit.

Hawking is not alone in this way, there is other physicists that believe the existence of negative and positive energy. I believe that is a good idea but needs more work.
I do not agree with negative and positive energy, in my theory there is negative and positive virtual photons.

Once more: there's no point arguing over the possible sign of energy, because energy can have both signs. Stability considerations imply, only,  that the total energy of a physical system is bounded from below-however, in the absence of gravity, there's nothing that prohibits the minimum value from being a negative number. What matters is that it's finite. (It can then be taken as the lowest value and all others are strictly greater, so the differences are positive.) 
When gravity is taken into account, it can be proved, as a mathematical statement, that the sign of the total energy of a physical system can't be arbitrary. 
Since, in the presence of gravity, energy, as the Noether charge of time translation invariance, is defined only at infinity and, then, under assumptions, the way to understand the sign of the energy is not the same as in the non-relativistic approximation. How it should be done is presented, these days,  in textbooks on general relativity.

Dear Stam
Please forget the sign of energy and consider to redshif and escaping velocity.
Suppose a photon escape of a massive body (it is not a black hole), photon lost a part of its energy, two energies (energy that photon lost and energy that massive body gets) are equal with different direction. One is upward (relative the massive body) and other one is downward. For simplicity, can we call (the upward energy) positive energy and (the downward energy) negative energy?

In classical mechanics "negative energy" results just from where one sets one's reference/datum - if it is set at zero at infinity from a potential well, then the "bound" particles need to have energy added to the system to take them to infinity, so they have negative energy.
In quantum mechanics, negative energy leads to imaginary waves, which have a real decaying exponential part. These are the "evanescent waves"  of bound states and as such, negative energy is a very real phenomena.

The theory of ‘universe birth model from nothing’ by Hawking, Guth and Virenkin etc. can be explained by the fact that the gravitational potential energy offsets the mass energy.
However, Gravitational self-energy or Gravitational binding energy in case of uniform density is given by
Ugs = -(3/5)(GM2/R)
From Mass energy equivalence principle,
-(3/5)(GM2/R_gs) = -Mc
R_gs=(3/5)(GM/c2)
However, Schwarzschild black hole’s radius is given by R_b=2GM/c2
R_gs = 0.3R_b < R_b
If gravitational potential energy exactly balances the energy in matter, our universe has to be black hole. But, our universe is not black hole.
At present, the gravitational potential energy does not completely offset mass energy. And for the birth of the universe from “nothing or zero energy” and energy conservation at the birth of the universe, “negative mass”, which corresponds to “negative energy”, is of utmost necessity.
ET = 0 = (+E)+(-E)=(Σ+m+c^2) + (Σ-m_c^2)+(ΣU)=0 
The principle, which says “the state of low energy is stable”, is one of the fundamental principles of Physics, and it has its influences on across all the fields of Physics. In this article, we will reveal that this principle is an incomplete.
Fig01  
It is stable at a low energy state in the case of positive mass(energy), whereas, it is stable at a high energy state in the case of negative mass(energy). Due to this, “the problem of transition to minus infinite energy level" does not occur, therefore negative energy and positive energy can coexist.
Moreover, we will show that negative energy provides an explanation for dark matter and dark energy, which are the biggest issues posed to cosmology at the present.

Dear Hyoyoung
I studied your article, you have focused of negative and positive energies (relation 4, in your article). In my opinion its is a key point to solve the problems of modern physics. But it is a basic shapes that you have stopped on energy, I think we need to develop our understanding the nature of energy.
In my theory, energy is "dense field" and mass is "Intensive energy".
So, in fact a photon is made up of two perpendicular electric and magnetic fields, also every electric field is made up of color charges and magnetic field is made up of color magnetic.
I generalize the Maxwell equations of electromagnetism to the gravitational field. I have used the pair production and decay to show that a charged particle acts like a generator, the generator input and output are gravitons and virtual photon. The negative charged particle produces positive virtual photon and positive charged particle produces negative virtual photon. A negative and a positive virtual photon combine with each other in the vicinity of a charged particle and cause the charged particle to accelerate. Although this approach to Quantum Field Theory (QFT) is presented, it has some differences. The mechanism of negative and positive virtual photons interaction is easier and more realistic than exchange particles of QFT, and it also has no ambiguities of QFT. After all, I explain the real photon and its structure by using the virtual photons.

Dear Thierry
I appreciate your feedback on my question, thank you so much.
You have written: " I wonder, is science ready for "The Theory of Everything" or "A Universe From Nothing" today, or is it just philosophy? " Its was (and also is) my problem too. I have tried to find its answer a long years.
As we know modern physics is based on relativity and quantum mechanics. But there are some unanswered questions or complex concepts in modern physics. The questions that modern physics does not have answers for, and the physicists believe that it is due to the inability of theories.
There are various theories in physics, but nature is unique. This is not nature's problem that we have various theories; nature obeys simple and unique law. So, we should improve our theories. Many researchers believe that physics will not be complete until it can explain not just the behavior of space and time, but where these entities come from.
Let me repeat that where these entities come from? Where should we look for the origins of space and time? Where is the origin of space and time? The origin of space and time come of the grand cosmic scale? Come of the quantum level? Did come from before the Big Bang? In my theory, sum of observable and non-observable universe is eternal.
In my opinion we should redefine a physical existence in real time and space, review the physical properties of the quantum vacuum and finally develop the old theories by combining real and virtual space-time concepts.

Dear Hossein, you have formed a well documented question.
However the concept of 'time' needs to be considerated, since it is the cause of many 'paradoxes' or 'strange questions', see my first publication.
Another issue is our limited knowledge of cosmology. Personal I prefer to declare my ignorance, than infering, see my second publication.

Dear Hossein,
Negative Energy: minus charge of electron, south-pole of magnetism; gravity vs. mass. The sign of the ‘negative’ is a minus-sign by definition.
I am quite aware about attempts to explain what gravity is, and how it fits to mass. All of those start with gravity and Earth and observe that gravity pulls down and energy (like a rocket) must be used to move up.
It is an accepted scientific method to identify and measure effects of otherwise unknown causes. The exploration and definition of gravity by Newton, and others before him (Galileo), is the related to falling of 'things'. Einstein’s relationship between the curvature (‘bending’) of the Earth-surface and its following by gravity is nothing new. Again, by starting with gravity, he cannot proof how it came to be.
In contrast, my modeling did not have gravity in the starting assumption. I saw that you read my first report which is about the formation of mass from the pre-BB energy singularity. No gravity there.
In the mass-forming process, Energy must be pulled from the energy singularity to form particles. This leaves an ‘energy-hole’ in the singularity which is attractive to the energy of the particles. Since the effect is a resulting energy hole which is trying to combine with the ‘lost’ energy in the singularity.  Its attraction of energy is equal to its attraction by energy can be expressed by plus and minus. Thus, if energy and its particles are considered plus, the energy-hole is negative. This is in full agreement with the ‘negative energy’ of gravity vs. positive energy used by the rocket rising up from the the Earth surface. 
All these have been observed ‘forever’. However the gravity observations never led to an independent derivation of its emergence and its properties. In the Universe, anti-energy (attractive) is observed between masses, and modeled by the information of Gravity. Conceptionally, positive and negative electric charges, and negative and positive magnetism are defined similarly.

Dear Demetris
I studied your article, I appreciate you effort to define "Time". Its a considerable view on "Time", but it is not a definition of time. Lets me be honest, I do not believe "Time" is definable. There is three description on the being and time.
* Time and Religion; Religion does not take kindly to time. For many people the impulse to religion is generated by a desire to escape from the tyranny of time: we seek a refuge from the changes and chances of this fleeting world, and hope to evade the inevitable mortality of our temporal existence, by moving to a higher plane of reality, where the limitations of temporality are transcended by the eternal verities of absolute existence.
* Time and Phylosophy: The best work of being and time belongs to the German philosopher Martin Heidegger. Being and Time was originally intended to consist of two major parts, each part consisting of three divisions. Heidegger was forced to prepare the book for publication when he had completed only the first two divisions of part one. The remaining divisions planned for Being and Time (particularly the divisions on time and being, Immanuel Kant, and Aristotle) were never published, although in many respects they were addressed in one form or another in Heidegger's other works. In terms of structure, Being and Time remains as it was when it first appeared in print; it consists of the lengthy two-part introduction, followed by Division One, the "Preparatory Fundamental Analysis of Dasein," and Division Two, "Dasein and Temporality."
Usually our philosophical perception of time prevented us from knowing we'll physical time.
* The nature of time in physics is that when does time appear? Which physical existence does not experience time? Photon experiences time, because in Compton's effect and in gravitational blueshift (and redshift) photon's energy changes so it experiences time.
So, this question remains that which physical existence (particles) does not experience time? Are you know a physical being (or a particle) that does not experience time?
In classical mechanics, time is something that passes uniformly regardless of whatever happens in the world. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity predicted that time does not flow at a fixed rate: moving clocks appear to tick more slowly relative to their stationary counterparts. Quantum mechanics does not neglect the time either. In standard model, photon does not experience time. Some new theories suggest that time does not exist at the quantum level. The study of the quantum universe shows us that time does not exist. It shows us that time is a function of relativity only and exists relative to some arbitrary point of reference.
Whatever else may be said about time, one thing is certain, it defies definition. The best we can say is that we all know what time is, intuitively. The Seventh Edition of Webster's Collegiate Dictionary tells us that time is "the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues." Of course, what the lexicographer has done here is to tell us that time is defined by its measurement and that measurement is of a period during which something occurs. He has not told us what time really is.
In fact it is the definition of a clock. What is the nature of physical time, really? In this paper, I have tried to answer this question.

"I am quite aware about attempts to explain what gravity is, and how it fits to mass.
All of those start with gravity and Earth and observe that gravity pulls down and energy (like a rocket) must be used to move up."
On the earth, our observes show an object accelerates toward the earth, that is describable by Newton's gravitational law. In my opinion, our problem is how we can describe acceleration by useing quantum mechanics concepts.
You have written: "gravity observations never led to an independent derivation of its emergence and its properties."
Yes, I agree with you, so our problem is to redefine the properties of gravity.
Motion is an intrinsic property of physical existence. But there is a problem about concept of acceleration in theoretical physics.
First of all, what we know about acceleration? And what is the definition of acceleration? In physics, acceleration is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time that in classical mechanics is given by Newton's second law with a=F/m. In special relativity an accelerating particle has a world-line which is not straight. This is not difficult to handle. The 4-vector acceleration can be defined as the derivative with respect to proper time of the 4-velocity. It is possible to solve the equations of motion for a particle in electric and magnetic fields, for example. Accelerating reference frames is a different matter. In general relativity the physical equations take the same form in any co-ordinate system. In special relativity they do not but it is still possible to use co-ordinate systems corresponding to accelerating or rotating frames of reference just as it is possible to solve ordinary mechanics problems in curvilinear co-ordinate systems. This is done by introducing a metric tensor.
However, Newton and Einstein define the acceleration regardless of the structure of particles (in classical mechanics and relativity). This definition belongs to Newton era or macroscopic level era. It should be noted that the interaction between large objects (e.g. collision of two bodies) under the action of the quantum layer (in fact sub quantum level) has been done. Thus, according to quantum mechanics and mass–energy equivalence E=mc^2, we must redefine acceleration. It means we should review the relativistic Newton's second law.

Dear Hossein,
Thank you for your reference. I am intrigued by your discussion of acceleration. I never new that it caused trouble if moved between different approaches, e.g. Newton and Einstein. it will be interesting to follow how the two views will come together and flow from one to the other. Here, the preferred way is to set up fights, not to encourage cooperation. The aim of this is to elevate one's fame by lowering the status of the opponent. I feel, that as a scientist I should learn about different views and appreciate the efforts of the authors. The aim should be to better explain nature and its interactions and encourage widening our knowledge of our environment (Earth and Universe). 
I am hoping that you will show you efforts to smoothen the acceleration to move 'relativistic' and 'Newtonian'.
Wishing you much success and much enjoyment in the efforts.

Dear Ingo
When I saw your last comment, I was surprised and delighted, because it shows you are a honest scientist, thank you so much.
We are indebted to Newton and Einstein. But our problem is how human's understanding approaches nature laws.
We are not seeing the world out of it. We are a small part of the world that we live in. Also, no picture covers all the landscape, the physical events are not in our minds, and we will process our personal phenomena in mind that usually are far from the reality.
We describe a personal phenomenon, it will bring judgment and the others are compared with the phenomenon itself. In discussion, a common phenomenon will be created that is closer to reality. The history of science shows that even a common human phenomenon isn’t all reality. Physicists in order to make the joint phenomenon close together and prevent dispersion of votes and results used mathematical models.
Therefore physicists used mathematics to describe reality. Scientific theories (even Newton's laws and Einstein's theory of relativity) do not show the laws of nature, but are our understanding of physical phenomena to explain the nature and closeness of the common phenomena to the dominating rules of nature. So no theory is perfect, even if expressed with mathematical formulas.
For a long time, my basic problem was nature of acceleration and relativity mass, and I have focused on them more than 20 years. Result was reconsideration the relativistic Newton's second law.
You’re the best!

Mass capacitor
I followed some ideas about mass decrease for bounded bodies (Yarman, Sobczyk) and commented their articles, but with no response.
Imagine two infinite parallel plates and according to Gauss law gravitational field is zero inside, but non-zero and homogeneous outside capacitor. For electrostatic field is situation just opposite.
Next, imagine that one plate is at rest, while the other accelerates and stops (just to eliminate kinetic energy from picture).
According to articles, there is rest mass decrease for both situations, but I do not see it. 
For electrostatic field there is a smaller region with field after moving, so, binding energy is due to field. There is no space for mass decrease.
For gravitational field is situation opposite: there is more space with field, and natural conclusion would be that negative binding energy is in gravitational field. 
But, there is another possibility. If there is no energy in gravitational field (it means that gravitational field is just some kind of space geometry) binding energy is due to rest mass decrease according to relativistic mass-energy relation. It is an interesting possibility, because law of energy conservation suffices to describe dynamics. For gravitational collapse it means that there is less mass but more gravitational field.
Arguments are the same for spherical masses, mathematics is more complicated. 
So, please, dear friends, give me some contra arguments!

The greatest problem is: what quantum vacuum made up of? How we can describe the mechanis of zero point energy?
In cosmology, the vacuum energy is taken by many to be the origin of the cosmological constant. Experimentally, the zero-point energy of the vacuum leads directly to the Casimir effect1, and is directly observable in nanoscale devices.
One way to explain this is by means of the uncertainty principle of quantum physics, which implies that it is impossible to have a zero energy condition. In this article, an attempt has been made according to the concept of gravitational blue shift, to take the Mössbauer effect, Pound-Rebka experiments and the interaction between gravity and the photon into consideration from a Higgs field point of view.

NASA Johnson Space Center
Wignall in 2007 (see link below, unfortunately not open access) points out that de Broglie frequency is directly proportional to mass-energy, and it does have an absolute zero.  There is no positive or negative to a vibration.  A phase yes, and out of phase vibrations can cancel, but taken separately they appear the same, and with the delay of half a cycle they become the same.  So there may not be negative energy.
In most cases in physics, the absolute value of energy is indeterminate and cannot be found, only the energy difference.  It is for this reason that vacuum energy really isn't useful.  I suppose you could have a hole in the vacuum (just making this up on the fly) which would act like negative energy, though really it is only a negative difference from the vacuum state.
Since QM and gravitational estimates of the vacuum energy differ by 100 orders of magnitude, I don't have much confidence in it.

Seems, negative and positive energies were complex concepts that they have invented. In my theory, there are two kinds virtual photons, negative virtual photon and positive virtual photon. They combine and become to a real photon.

Dear Hossein,
The answer is very easy, for the free fall object under gravity, a part of the rest mass will change to energy equals to the gravitational potential at that point in space. In this case the measured relativistic escape velocity locally at that point in space   under the gravitational field is equals to v^2=2GM/r-G^2M^2/c^4r^2. Globally it must measured a slightly redshift depending of the quantum Lorentz factor (1-GM/c^2r) that is if the object localized at exact point in space in the gravitational field same as in the Pond and Rebka experiment in this case it is linear dispersion where the potential energy is not changed when the object is located at the same point in space, and thus the group velocity and the phase velocity are equal. But if the object continues in motion same as in case of light bending in gravity or Shiparo delay or Mercury precession. In this case the potential is changing at each point in space, in this case according to Heisenberg uncertainty principle the group velocity is not equal to the phase velocity, and thus the classical velocity is given according to the group velocity. From that according to Heisenberg uncertainty principle you get the light bending in gravity or Shiparo delay or Mercury precession and also the pioneer anomaly are solved according to the square of the quantum Lorentz factor (1-GM/c^2r)^2 and it approximated in case of weak gravitational field to (1-2GM/^2r) because G^2M^2/c^4r is much less than 2GM/c^2r.
From my relativistic escape velocity when the particle falls in the quantum Schwarzschild radius GM/c^2r you get v^2=c^2 locally, where all the rest mass of the object will change to photons. In this case locally, when the object located at infinity , the total energy of the object is m0c^2 and during the falling in the gravitational field, the total energy locally at any point in space in the gravitational field is m0c^2 which remains constan,t where the relativistic mass is always m0 at any point in space in the gravitational field, and also in the Schwarschild radius where all the rest mass will change to photons, the total energy is m0c^2. So if you want the object in the gravitational field to separate from the gravitational field any point in space at the gravitational field , you must give him an energy equals to the gravitational potential at that point in space and thus the object will move in the escape velocity.

Dear Azzam
Thank you for your interesting notes.
Suppose a particle reaches to escape velocity on the surface of a body (such as earth), it lost a part of its kinetic energy, question is: what happens for this kinetic energy?

DEAR HOSSEIN,
This is the redshift which is proved by Hubble's law, and observed in the Pioneer anomaly.  According to my transformation I discovered a subgroup of the conformal group, a subgroup called dilations.  dilation was used by a researcher named Hill in 1946 I believe in a proposal to explain the Hubble redshift. This proposal is long dead of course (in part because the microwave background is a pretty strong indication that the early universe was hot and dense, so the expansion is real!!!! why observed as real?). Now I repeat this model again, and I understood what is the problem here. The problem is in objectivity in the Lorentz transformation. Reinterpretation of the Lorentz transformation according to Copenhagen school and the death of objectivity will resulted Heisenberg uncertainty and the wave-particle duality govern the motion in micro and macro world.  In fact the problem can be solved exactly by considering there is no space-time continuum and it is only time and space is invariant. That will lead and interpret the entanglement completely in case negative vacuum energy.

Dear Azzam
You are right. There is some considerable notes in your comment, thank you.
I think there is an deeply result in this phenomena.
In my theory, when object lost its kinetic energy, energy converts to gravitons.
For detail see following link, I hope see your opinion.

Dear Hossein,
I read your paper. It is really very interesting. I and you discuss the same problem, but we are different in how to solve this problem. According to your paper you adopt the principle of objectivity which is adopted in classical physics. For me I refuse this principle...why? 
Dear Hossein,
If t' not equal to t according to Lorentz transformation, do think that if the observer on the ground sees the flying plane is on Paris now, then, do you think at this moment the pilot of the moving plane sees his plane now on Paris. If not, then objectivity is not existed in physics. In Galilean transformation objectivity is true because t'=t, but in Lorentz transformation since t' not equal to t, then there is something wrong in physics, because SRT fixes data to keep on objectivity while objectivity is an illusion.
if objectivity does not exist, then continuity is not true as in classical physics, because of that in quantum theory there is an entanglement which is seen and proved experimentally. So I hope to discuss in this point in physics "Is objectivity exist really?"

Dear Azzam
I appreciate your attention and notes on my paper.
It is generally asserted that the "principle of objectivity" is valid for constitutive equations but not valid for general field equations.
Non objectivity of physical properties enters physics with the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics (QM), and a number of paradoxes of this theory follow from it.
Consider that in my theory, real spacetime has linked to virtual spacetime. I also have tried to built virtual spacetime on foundation of real spacetime. So, discuss on objectivity is not interesting for me.

What is the mysteries of mass?
Neutrinos have mass, but the Standard Model can't easily account for how they get those masses.
By proposing of the relativity and limit speed of light c, the Newton’s second law was corrected so that the limitation of speed must had applied. And relativistic Newton’s second law was propounded.
After 1906 Einstein have derived the second postulate of special relativity the constancy of the speed of light by assuming that the light quanta that he proposed in 1905 were massless particles.
It is just possible that we could allow m0=0 provided the particle always travels at the speed of light c. In this case above equations will not serve to define and so that for massless particle given by; E=Pc.
What does determine the momentum and energy of a massless particle? Not the mass (that is zero by assumption) not the speed (that is always c). Relativity offers no answer to this question, but curiously enough, quantum mechanics does, in the form of Plank's formula: E=mc^2. Only moving photon has mass as follows from the Einstein formula E=mc^2. Physicists have not stopped on assumption of massless. There are more attempts were made to clarify the photon massless in theoretical and experimental physics. There are good theoretical reasons to believe that the photon mass should be exactly zero, there is no experimental proof of this belief. These efforts show there is an upper bound on the photon mass, although the amount is very small, but not zero. The tight experimental upper bound of the photon mass restricts the kinematically allowed final states of photon decay to the lightest neutrino and/or particles beyond the Standard Model.
Theories and experiments have not limited to photons and graviton will also be included. For gravity, there have been vigorous debates about even the concept of graviton rest mass.
Particles and NR-particles: There are two kinds of particles in physics:
1 - Some particles like the photon moves only with the speed of light, in all inertial reference frames. Let’s call these kinds of particles as Never at Rest condition particles (NR-particle).
2 - Other particles like the electron always move with the speed c in all inertial reference frames, they could be called particles.
According to the above definitions, photon and graviton are NR-particle, while electron and proton are particles.
This new approach helps us to review the relativistic Newton’s second law; See Section 5 of:

Dear friends colleagues, have you ever received an invitation to publish your work at InTech Open Science (https://www.intechopen.com/)? I have recently been invited to edit a new book title for them. I am usually suspicious with such invitations and must check the authenticity of the publisher first. Interestingly, they claim that they have published the work for two recent Nobel Laureates. Therefore, I would appreciate your experience and opinions regarding InTech Open Science.
Kind regards,
Did I actually measure a superluminous signal thus disproving the relativity theory?

In 1834, Charles Wheatstone measured the velocity of electricity along two long wires, whereby he found a velocity of about 463,500 km/s, over 1.5 times the speed of light. In 1905, Nikola Tesla also measured a propagation speed for the telluric currents he transmitted trough the earth's surface of 471,240 km/s, remarkably close to Wheatsone's result and within 0.1% of pi/2 times the speed of light.
In order to validate the possibility of transmitting superluminal signals along a wire, we setup an experiment, similar in design to Wheatstone's, consisting of two relatively long wires which were excited by a capacitive discharge. Hereby, a mercury wetted relay was used as a switching element in order to obtain as fast a signal rise time as possible.
Quite surprisingly, the superluminal signal was detected and found to propagate at more than 1.8 times the speed of light. This is quite a lot faster than the theoretical pi/2 (1.57), which may be caused by the use of enamelled wire rather than unshielded wire.
I still need to work things further out, but you can take a look at the scope shots and setup to draw your own conclusions:
Besides this experiment, I've also worked on a new aether theory, whereby the electromagnetic domain is fully integrated with the fluid dynamics domain and whereby all units of measurement are expressed in just three fundamental ones: mass, length and time, which would explain the existence of superluminal longitudinal "sound" waves in the aether:
In this work, there are 18 references to papers wherein superluminal signals were detected with various methods, such as microwave experiments as well as experiments with optical fibers.
So, the question is: is this actual additional evidence of the existence of Tesla's superluminal longitudinal waves, or did I measure an artifact?
Update: The measurement presented above (even though preliminary), together with the 18 references around detection of superluminal signals in my paper as well as the recent work of Steffen Kühn leave little doubt that the actual propagation speed of the electric field is superluminal rather than that it propagates at c:
So, now we have two independent measurements of superluminal signal transmission along a transmission line. He has also pointed to the exact same problem in Maxwell's equations via a different path:
Taking all of this together, there simply is no escape to the conclusion that Maxwell's equations are indeed wrong. One cannot get away with violating the fundamental theorem of vector calculus, which is undoubtedly called fundamental for a reason, and it seems to me that after 120+ years of attempting to correct this obvious flaw by extending the model, i.e. make it "complete" by trying to find additional equations (including multi-dimensional ones), maybe it's time to try something else, like simply fixing the actual problem and revise Maxwell's equations.
