Introduction
I am working on a project called Open World. The ultimate objective of Open World is world peace and nuclear disarmament. There are five themes within Open World all mutually supportive and interrelated. The evolution of the universe, fundamental physics, the operation of the brain, the enhanced global economic system and a set of guiding principles for peace. Please help to complete the goals. Richard

The idea that the planets in the solar system formed directly from the cloud of gas and dust is challenged and a new explanation proposed. The rotating cloud of gas and dust that formed the solar system as a whole must have come from a rotating star that exploded in a supernova with all the material including all the elements found in the solar sys...

The existence of a Space Rest Frame is discussed. In the past the existence of a stationary luminiferous aether was proposed as the medium for the propagation of light. This idea was discarded when the Michelson-Morley experiment was completed and Special Relativity was founded on the assumption that there is no special frame of reference. Now foll...

The nature of the hydrogen bond is studied in the context of the Spacetime Wave Theory. The usual description of a covalent bond is: a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms. These electron pairs are known as shared pairs or bonding pairs, and the stable balance of attractive and repulsive forces between atoms, when...

The current global economic system based on market economies and democratic government has the potential to be improved to meet future challenges. The objective of the enhanced global economic system is to ease deprivation, optimise employment, stabilise population growth, combat climate change and ensure a sustainable long term future. The key e...

There is an unresolved problem in the nuclear industry of dealing with high level nuclear waste. This nuclear waste is in the form of spent fuel rods or surplus material from nuclear weapons or highly radioactive material from reprocessing. The problem is that the material stays radioactive in some cases for 10,000 or even 100,000 years and so any...

The objective of the enhanced global economic system is to ease deprivation, optimise employment, stabilise population growth, combat climate change and ensure a sustainable long term future. The key element of the enhanced system is to provide national governments with an annual allocation of money based on national population without incurring an...
Experiment Findings
Full-text available
The thought experiment involves two rows of golf balls row A and row B that are aligned with separation between adjacent balls in each row at one metre apart. There is negligible separation between row A and row B, just sufficient to all the golf balls in row B to pass by. The golf balls in row B all start to move at the same time (in the direction...

This is a copy of a talk given by Albert Einstein to the University of Leiden on 5th May 1920. It is significant because it reveals the thinking of Albert Einstein on the subject of the Ether. I managed to transcribe this talk from the record available at the University of Princeton by taking screen shots of each individual page and compiling them...

The objective is to find a unified description of physical properties which applies at the small (atomic) scale and at the large (cosmological) scale. The starting point is the General Theory of Relativity. Light is described as a wave disturbance of spacetime propagating through space. The light interference experiment is discussed in detail cons...

The nature of gravitational waves is discussed as described by the General Theory of Relativity and only recently observed as a detectable phenomenon. Gravitational waves are a wave disturbance of spacetime propagating at the speed of light. It is proposed that light and other electromagnetic waves are wave disturbances of spacetime propagating at...

The following assumptions of the Big Bang theory are challenged and found to be false: the cosmological principle, the assumption that all matter formed at the same time and the assumption regarding the cause of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR). The evolution of the universe is described based on the conclusion that the universe is...

Our understanding of the operation of the brain has been limited by a lack of understanding of fundamental physics which has prevented a deep understanding of key aspects of brain function. Now with the introduction of the Spacetime Wave Theory the nature of consciousness can be addressed. The 'hard' problem of consciousness is addressed by consid...

This is an updated version of the Unification of Physics paper with changes to Appendix 2 Energy Levels in the Hydrogen Atom and Appendix 4 Wave Description of the Proton and Neutron. The changes to Appendix 2 support the claim that the Spacetime Wave Theory provides an explanation for the cause of electron quantisation. The changes to Appendix 4 p...

If you have watched the video on the past motion of the galaxy Andromeda you will remember the interplay between the expansion of space and the acceleration due to gravity. If you then think of two spherical regions of gas an dust with a radius of 0.5 million light years and a distance of separation of 2 million light years you will see that the sp...

The presentation covers the results of an analysis of galaxy positions based on data downloaded from the NASA Extragalactic Database (NED). The positions and red-shift of approximately 110,000 galaxies have been taken and these galaxies are located at a distance of up to 550 million light years. The galaxies have been grouped into distance bands co...

This video is assembled from position data taken from the NASA Extragalactic Database (NED). The positions and red-shift of approximately 110,000 galaxies have been taken and these galaxies are located at a distance of up to 550 million light years. The galaxies have been grouped into distance bands corresponding to steps of 2.75 million light year...

The video starts with the analogy of observing a falling ball through a window and from a precise measurement of the speed being able to calculate the height from which it was dropped and the time when it was dropped. Similarly we know that the Andromeda galaxy is moving towards the Milky Way galaxy at 110 km/s and is at a distance of 2.5 million...

This presentation addresses the problem of determining how far away an object was located at the time that the radiation was emitted. When measurements are made of luminosity and redshift the observation depends on the time taken for the light to travel. This is because both the luminosity and the red shift values which we measure depend on the act...

The presentation explains the theory that all black holes contain a neutron star of the corresponding mass. The theory discards the idea that black holes contain a singularity at the centre of the black hole. Also the idea of black hole evaporation is discarded. The formation of an event horizon is considered for low, intermediate and high densitie...

This a prerecording of a conference presentation given on the subject of the unification of physics. Starting from the nature of light as a wave disturbance of spacetime, the fundamental nature of matter is deduced so that neutrons, protons and electrons are shown to be looped waves in spacetime. The conflict between General Relativity (GR) and Q...

This is a video recording that I prepared in advance of the Conference. The same presentation slides were used at the conference. In the video presentation an alternative to the Big Bang theory is presented leading to an explanation for Dark Matter and Dark Energy which would not be possible in the context of the Big Bang theory.

To establish world peace. There should be international agreement that the leader of any country is limited to two terms of office and a total maximum of ten years in office. This is aimed at stopping the rise of dictators who suppress their own people and wage war on adjacent countries. People are entitled to have a government which is elected by the people, free of corruption and which respects human rights. In order to establish world peace it is necessary to demonstrate the futility of war. As of the year 2022 there are well defined country borders. Any country invading another country with military force will be subjected to international isolation and condemnation. As well as all possible financial sanctions, they will not be allowed to participate in any international sporting or cultural activity until they withdraw their military personnel and equipment from the country that they have occupied. Once this approach is shown to be effective it will be necessary that leaders of the invading country are elected that can be trusted by the international community. This will help establish world peace.
