Unified field theory (UFT) is an attempt to describe all fundamental forces and the relationships between elementary particles in terms of a single framework. Albert Einstein and others attempted to construct a UFT involving electromagnetism and gravity, but they failed. Author Mark Fiorentino has been obsessed with Einstein's UFT ever since hearing about it when he was ten. He joined Richard Syrett (Twitter) to discuss how he transformed a series of clues into a set of concepts that led him to the realization that both Special and General Relativity needed to be extended in order to achieve Einstein's dream as he first envisioned it.
In General Relativity, matter tells space-time how to curve and curved space-time tells matter how to move, Fiorentino explained. Special Relativity is modeled on an ether theory, he added. According to Fiorentino, ether is the only thing there is in reality, and Einstein came to believe this at the end of his life. Unified field theory encompasses electrostatic and magnetic fields, and gravity which is a contraction of space, Fiorentino continued. "Those aspects are really different types of bending of the fundamental ether field," he said.
Einstein may have developed a UFT had he been born later, Fiorentino suggested, noting the famous physicist did not live at a time where it was known that each neutron and proton contained three fast-moving points of energy called quarks. These charges moving in an accelerated fashion cause space to contract around particles which is gravity, he noted. Fiorentino proposed an expansion of space would create an anti-gravity field. "All you need to do is use a magnetic field to stretch space and you will get... an anti-gravity effect that can be used for propulsion," he said. Fiorentino imagined such technology could be used in numerous technological applications, including constructing faster-than-light ships to ferry colonists from Earth to other planets.
Open Lines followed in the latter half of the program. Mark in Kettering, Ohio, recalled learning about Newton's Second Law (Force equals Mass times Acceleration) and the Lorentz Transformations in Physics. "When you plug in beyond the Speed of Light [into the equations]... time is going negative, it's going backwards," he said. Mark went on to suggest we could be living in a partitioned universe or be part of a projection from a distant point in space.
Tom from Los Angeles phoned in to tell Richard about a woman he met who believed she had been abducted several times by aliens. Whenever this woman got pregnant (by her husband) the aliens would show up and remove the fetus, Tom reported, noting she had verifiable internal scarring from the removals. According to Tom, the aliens also gave her a design for a magnetic motor that was the basis for their technology.
Wayne in Tacoma, Washington, commented on a series of 2015 patents requested by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) for a hybrid aerospace underwater craft. The patents included a high-frequency gravitational wave generator, a room temperature superconductor, and an electromagnetic force field generator. According to Wayne, this is proof the Navy has an operational anti-gravity craft. "If the Navy's talking about it, they've had it around for 40 or 50 years," he said.
