Tuomo Suntola DU in Finnish

The key finding behind the Dynamic Universe (DU) theory is that the fourth dimension shall be described as a metric dimension and time as a scalar allowing motion and momentum equally in the three space dimensions and the fourth dimension. Closing the three-dimensional space through the fourth dimension to form a hypersphere with radius in the fourth dimension, the dynamics of space can be calculated as that of a spherical pendulum: Mass in space has got its energy of motion against release of gravitational energy in a contraction phase preceding the ongoing expansion phase. Applying the Hubble radius of about 14 billion lightyears, and the total mass obtained from Friedmann’s critical mass density in the hypersphere, the rest energy of the total mass, as the energy of motion along the radius of the expanding hypersphere, is essentially equal to the total gravitational energy. For conserving the overall energy balance in space, kinetic energy in space is associated with a reduction in the rest energy as the energy of motion in the fourth dimension. Any state of motion and gravitation in space can be related to the state of rest in hypothetical homogeneous space with all mass uniformly distributed in the hypersphere. Hypothetical homogeneous space serves as an absolute frame of reference to all local frames in a system of nested energy frames. Instead of distorted time and distances like in the theory of relativity, relativity in DU is expressed in terms of locally available energy thus saving absolute time essential for human comprehension – and shows, e.g., the effects of gravitation and motion on the frequency of atomic clocks directly via the quantum mechanical solution of the characteristic frequencies. DU does not need a separate relativity theory, relativity is a direct consequence of the overall energy balance in space. Time and distance are universal coordinate quantities. Mass obtains the meaning of the wavelike substance for the expression of energy identifiable equally in classical mass objects, electromagnetic radiation, and quantum structures. DU allows major simplification of the cosmological picture and produces accurate predictions with straightforward mathematics – without the need of dark energy or other artificial parameters.

We are taught to think that the description of relativistic phenomena requires distorted time and distance. The message of this essay is that, in a holistic perspective, time and distance are universal coordinate quantities, and relativity is a direct consequence of the conservation of energy. ...

The basis of the Dynamic Universe (DU) theory was first documented in 1996. Since then, the theory has been elaborated and documented in several steps – linkage to the historical development is studied in the book “The Short History of Science – or the long path to the union of metaphysics and empiricism” first published in 2012.

The Dynamic Universe theory is a holistic description of the observable physical reality. Like the Copernican revolution, the DU creates a system perspective allowing straightforward mathematics and a conceivable cosmological picture of the universe — and gives precise predictions to observables without dark energy or other artificial parameters. It is a unifying theory converting spacetime in variable coordinates into dynamic space in absolute coordinates.

The book traces the development of the scientific picture of reality from antique to present day with special emphasis on the philosophical and theoretical choices made along the path. Also, the book studies the possibility of a re-evaluation the theoretical structures and the picture of reality with a closer connection between the philosophical and empirical aspects. Short biographies of more than one hundred key scientists are included as well as numerous references and links to primary documents.

Kirja jäljittää tieteellisen maailmankuvan kehityksen antiikista nykypäivään, keskittyen erityisesti filosofisiin ja teoreettisiin valintoihin, jotka matkan varrella on tehty. Kirjassa tarkastellaan myös mahdollisuutta teoriarakenteiden ja todellisuuskuvan uudelleenarviointiin filosofisia ja empiirisiä näkökulmia lähentäen. Kirjaan on sisällytetty yli sadan keskeisen tiedemiehen lyhyet elämäkerrat sekä lukuisia viitteitä ja linkkejä alkuperäiskirjoituksiin.

The proceedings of the Workshop is now available as a Special Issue of the Italian periodical La Nuova Critica.

The Finnish Society for Natural Philosophy, together with The Physics Foundations Society, arranged a two-day workshop on the theme Scientific models and a comprehensive picture of reality held on May 20-21, 2016 at the House of Science and Letters in Helsinki. The workshop brought together recognized philosophers, physicists and cosmologists to discuss the scientific models and the challenge of making nature understandable. The workshop called for novel aspects of unifying theories and discusses the postulates, testability and the philosophical criteria of the theories. Link to Workshop program and presentations.

Anyway, modern science has increased our understanding of physics from elementary particles to cosmological structures and produced information that allows reevaluation of the basis. In the presentation, we show that by switching from an observer-oriented perspective to a system perspective, any local energy object is related to the rest of space and relativity appears as a direct consequence of the conservation of total energy in the system – without scarifying the absolute time and distance essential for human comprehension. Such a holistic approach has led to the Dynamic Universe (DU) theory. After maturing for the last twenty years, DU produces precise, well-tested predictions for local and cosmological observables and an uncontradictory linkage to quantum mechanics.

On November 10, 2015 The Finnish society for Natural Philosophy arranged a special event to celebrate the 100 years of the theory of general relativity. The program consisted of presentations on the status of astronomy at the time the theory was developed, the birth and the essence of the theory, and considerations of possible restructuring of the theory if today’s instruments, knowledge and observations had been available to Einstein.

Blackbody surface as antenna field. Antenna active area is related to the wavelength as Aλ=λ2/4π, with emission intensity to half-space as Iλ=1/Aλ =2π /λ2, which is exactly the Rayleigh-Jeans formula applying when all antennas are activated by the thermal energy, kT>hf. When only a part of antennas are activated as described by the Maxwell-Bolzmann distribution of the thermal energy, kT << hf, the emission intensity follows Wilhelm Wien’s radiation law. Max Planck’s radiation law combines the two and covers also the transition region where kT ≈ hf.

How do we start composing a jigsaw puzzle? It is certainly helpful if we see the picture of the puzzle when fully composed. In the big puzzle of physics, we are about to fit the highly tuned parts together to see whether they match, and what the total picture looks like – have we created a monster or a beauty, or something in between?

Relativity in the DU is not relativity between an object and the observer, but relativity between local and the whole - it shows the energy available in a local state of motion and gravitation. Clocks in motion or close to a mass center loose time because they have bound part of their energy in motion and local gravitation.

Recent observations on the redshift and magnitude of distant supernovae have raised fundamental questions of the cosmological structure and the development of space. Interpretation of the observations with the standard cosmology model suggests accelerating expansion of space which requires an assumption of unknown dark energy working against gravitation at cosmological distances. This paper presents an analysis which shows that the observed magnitude redshift relationship is in an excellent agreement with the prediction derived by assuming a zero energy balance of motion and gravitation in an expanding 4-sphere. Such an approach can be regarded as Einstein-deSitter expansion in the fourth dimension, suggesting a decelerating expansion velocity until zero in infinity.
