The unification of gravity and quantum mechanics is considered the holy grail of physics. Einstein's Theory of General Relativity describes celestial orbits and gravitational attraction, but the theory is incompatible with quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics is well-verified experimentally, but the theory does not account for, or describe, gravity. Many theories have been offered over the years to unite the two, but all, thus far, have failed. The most recent (and most popular), Superstring Theory, suffers from just one problem: it doesn't work.
In a paper entitled "Lorentz-contracted space as an origin of gravitational and quantum mechanical effects", presently under peer review by the prestigious journal, Foundations of Physics, Morgan Rosenberg not only provides the linkage between gravity and quantum mechanics, but uncovers the physical origins of both gravitational force and quantum mechanical effects. Although Einstein's theory mathematically describes the motion of celestial bodies, it does not provide an actual origin or cause for gravitational force. Rosenberg's paper finally describes the physical origins of gravity and the same principle is used to describe the quantum nature of particles.
Einstein's Theory of General Relativity provides a mathematical description for the orbits of celestial bodies. The physical interpretation of the mathematics is that matter causes the space around itself to curve. However, starting with Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity, Rosenberg has shown that one can equivalently interpret the mathematics of relativity to predict that space is actually compressed, rather than curved, in the presence of matter. Using this compression model, not only do all of the "classic" predictions of gravity appear (from Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation to the precession of the perihelion of Mercury), but the origin of the gravitational force becomes apparent.
Quantum Mechanics predicts that matter has a fundamental wave nature, but the question has always been "A wave formed in what?" Rosenberg's new theory (which he jokingly refers to as "Yet Another Theory of Everything") describes particles as compression waves in space; i.e., the same compression seen in gravitational fields. Rosenberg's compression waves are compatible with Schrodinger's equation, predict common principles, such as Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, and are shown to provide the compression seen on the macroscopic scale of gravitational effects. Dark energy, cosmic inflation and much more fall naturally out of this new theory.
