In an approach different from all previous attempts, a new theory successfully unifies general relativity and quantum mechanics--conceptually, as they are, creating an entirely new reality that "makes sense" for both.
"Many years ago, while studying these subjects," explains Anderthal Kord, the theory's creator, "I realized there was a way for relativity's fourth-dimensional spacetime to lead naturally and logically into quantum mechanics. From that basis I worked out, over the years, a complete and holistic theory of our entire universe, and I believe it is now ready for the world."
In the process of this unification, the theory accomplishes several other milestones, as well. "It explains quantum phenomena in a manner that makes sense to our ordinary human minds and logic," Kord claims. "And it derives a precise, physical definition of time--as opposed to its present status as a hazy metaphysical concept--and this new definition of time automatically includes its direction, its arrow and its flow."
But in Kord's personal opinion, the major accomplishment of his theory lies in its implications for human free will. He elaborates, "Within Einstein's fourth-dimensional spacetime, the existence of time is as real as the existence of space, and all of time exists in the same sense that all of space exists--so that, specifically, the future 'already' exists, which effectively destroys any meaningful concept of free will. But my theory restores free will within the context of relativity's spacetime."
This would have important consequences for our concept of personal identity. "Indeed," Kord agrees, "the unification of our physical universe into a single reality has many repercussions for our mental reality, as well. Our concept of self, identity and the very meaning of our existence are considerably enhanced within this unified realm, and the philosophical implications are immense."
Is this theory, then, a 'Theory of Everything'?
"Yes and no," Kord replies. "It manages to unify our entire presently known scientific universe into a single, holistic and meaningful reality. At the same time, it makes it clear that reality is far larger than anything we have even begun to imagine, and that there probably will never be a true 'Theory of Everything', as we presently envision it."
Will this theory be accepted by the world?
"I hope so, of course," Kord admits, "but I have an even larger and more humble goal in mind. And that is to show that it is at least possible to put the pieces of our known world together in a manner that makes sense, scientifically, personally and holistically, as it presently exists--to show this by actually demonstrating the possibility. As for the rest, I will let others decide for themselves."
The full details of this unification are described in Kord's book, THE THIRD PIECE--Unifying General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and Personal Identity. More details, and excerpts from the book, are found at the website, http://www.anderthalkord.com.
