And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality
itself deserve the title of Philosophers.
(Plato, Republic, 380BC )
The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which, just as a thing that is, it has. That among entities there must be some cause which moves and combines things. There must then be a principle of such a kind that its substance is activity. (Aristotle, 340BC)
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature. (Gottfried Leibniz, 1670)
Over the past 2,500 years there have been many Famous Philosophers who have discovered and written on various aspects of Truth and Reality. Unfortunately their knowledge has always been incomplete, and while it explains some things well, their ideas invariably led to paradoxes and confusion. The purpose of this website is to explain the ideas of many famous philosophers, and then, most importantly, to explain how the Wave Structure of Matter, by correcting their errors, leads to simple and sensible solutions to their problems.
(David Hume, 1737) And though the philosopher may live remote from business, the genius of philosophy, if carefully cultivated by several, must gradually diffuse itself throughout the whole society, and bestow a similar correctness on every art and calling.
(Aristotle, 340BC) The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And
here we will have the science to study that which is just as that which is,
both in its essence and in the properties
which, just as a thing that is, it has. ... That among entities there must be
some cause which moves and combines things.
... There must then be a principle of such a kind that its
substance is activity. (Aristotle, Metaphysics)
(Leibniz, 1670) Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial, cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general. (Leibniz, Monadology)
(Bradley, 1846-1924) We may agree, perhaps, to understand by Metaphysics an attempt to know reality as against mere appearance, or the study of first principles or ultimate truths, or again the effort to comprehend the universe, not simply piecemeal or by fragments, but somehow as a whole. (Bradley)
Summary: On the Metaphysics of Space and Motion
and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM).
By describing Reality from One Thing (Space) existing with the Properties of a Wave-Medium, we find that we can explain and solve many of the fundamental problems of Metaphysics (and thus Philosophy, Physics and Theology).
By realising that Matter is formed from Spherical Standing Waves in Space (rather than discrete particles & forces in Space-Time) we connect the many things (Matter, Time and Forces), back to One thing, Space and its Wave Motions. It is this wave motion of Space that causes matter's activity and the phenomena of Time. This solves the fundamental Problem of the One and the Many by moving from the Metaphysics of Space and Time (founded on four separate things) to the Metaphysics of Space and Motion (founded on One Thing, Space).
From this new metaphysical foundation and language for describing Reality (which is in fact the most simple possible scientific theory as it is founded on One Thing) we can then understand and explain the foundations of Absolute Truth, i.e. Necessary Connection, Logic, Reason, and Certainty, which then explain and solve many problems of Human Knowledge very simply and sensibly (see articles below).

(Lee Smolin, 1997) A successful unification of quantum theory and relativity would necessarily be a theory of the universe as a whole. It would tell us, as Aristotle and Newton did before, what space and time are, what the cosmos is, what things are made of, and what kind of laws those things obey. Such a theory will bring about a radical shift - a revolution - in our understanding of what nature is. It must also have wide repercussions, and will likely bring about, or contribute to, a shift in our understanding of ourselves and our relationship to the rest of the universe.
Einstein, 1954) The development during the present century is characterized
by two theoretical systems essentially independent of each other: the theory
of relativity and the quantum theory. The two systems do not directly contradict
each other; but they seem little adapted to fusion into one unified theory.
For the time being we have to admit that we do not possess any general theoretical
basis for physics which can be regarded as its logical foundation.
If, then, it is true that the axiomatic basis of theoretical physics cannot be extracted from experience but must be freely invented, can we ever hope to find the right way? I answer without hesitation that there is, in my opinion, a right way, and that we are capable of finding it. I hold it true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed.

Albert Einstein: Quantum Theory - Albert Einstein never understood the 'Photon' particle properties of Light Quanta. 'All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me no nearer to the answer to the question, 'What are light quanta?' Nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows it, but he is mistaken.' The Wave Structure of Matter explains the 'Photon' effect of Light due to Resonant Coupling between Spherical Standing Waves. Light is a wave phenomena, but Standing Wave Interactions (Resonant Coupling) only occur at discrete frequencies which explains Schrodinger's wave equations and the discrete energy exchanges of Light Quanta ('Photon particles').
Albert Einstein: Leiden Lecture - Very interesting lecture by Einstein (1920) on 'Ether and Relativity'. 'Recapitulating, we may say that according to the general theory of relativity space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists an ether. According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time.'

Heisenberg: Born - Wave Structure of Matter (Real Waves) explains Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and Born's Probability Wave Interpretation of Quantum Physics. Heisenberg's error was to assume 'Light and matter are both single entities, and the apparent duality arises in the limitations of our language.' when in fact the duality is caused by the Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter.

Lorentz, Hendrik - The Lorentz Transformations are caused by a change in velocity and ellipsoidal shape of the In-Waves which changes the location of the Wave-Center (and which we 'see' as a 'Force Accelerating a Particle').

Planck, Max - Wave Structure of Matter explains why Planck's Constant h correctly relates Frequency, Energy and Mass E=hf=mc2. 'A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.'
Schrodinger, Erwin - Schrodinger's Wave Equations describe real Standing Waves of Matter in Physical Space. 'The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists.'
Smolin, Lee - Some Quotes from Lee Smolin's Life of the Cosmos are explained by the Wave Structure of Matter. 'A successful unification of quantum theory and relativity would necessarily be a theory of the universe as a whole.'
Tesla, Nikola - Tesla was influenced by Vedic Philosophy that all is one and dynamic. The Wave Structure of Matter confirms Nikola Tesla's Theories on Resonance and Transfer of Energy by Waves in Space. 'One day man will connect his apparatus to the very wheel work of the universe ... and the very forces that motivate the planets in their orbits and cause them to rotate will rotate his own machinery.'
(James Clerk Maxwell, 1876) In speaking of the Energy of the
field, however, I wish to be understood literally. All energy is the same as
mechanical energy, whether it exists in the form of motion
or in that of elasticity, or in any other form. The energy
in electromagnetic phenomena is mechanical energy.
(Albert Einstein) Physics constitutes a logical system of thought which is in a state of evolution, whose basis cannot be distilled, as it were, from experience by an inductive method, but can only be arrived at by free invention. ... We must always be ready to change these notions - that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics - in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way logically. ... It is the grand object of all theory to make these irreducible elements (principles) as simple and as few in number as possible, without having to renounce the adequate representation of any empirical content whatever. (Albert Einstein, 1954)
According to the general theory of relativity space without ether is unthinkable; for in such space there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time. But this ether may not be thought of as endowed with the quality characteristic of matter, as consisting of parts ('particles') which may be tracked through time. (Albert Einstein, 1928, Leiden)
Summary: Currently physics is founded on four separate things, i.e. matter 'particles' which generate 'forces' that act on other particles in Space and Time. This causes many problems for Physics because we do not understand how these separate things are interconnected. The Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) solves these problems by describing reality founded on One Thing / Substance (Space) and its Properties as a Wave-Medium for Spherical Standing Waves that form matter. Thus we can explain Matter, Time and Forces by connecting them back to One Thing, Space with the following reasoning;
(Atom / Particle) - The Wave-Center of the Spherical Standing
Waves causes the discrete 'particle' effect of Matter.
Time - The Spherical Standing Wave Motion of Space causes matter's activity and the phenomena of Time. This confirms Aristotle and Spinoza's connection of Motion and Time, and most significantly connects these two things back to one thing Space. Movement, then, is also continuous in the way in which time is - indeed time is either identical to movement or is some affection of it. (Aristotle)
Forces (Light, Gravity) - Forces are caused by a change in velocity of the spherical In-Waves (from one direction, as they interact with other matter / waves) which causes a change in location of where these spherical (ellipsoidal) In-Waves finally meet at their Wave-Center, and which we 'see' as a 'force accelerating a particle'.
Thus we unite / connect Matter, Time and Forces back to One thing Space, existing as a Wave-Medium. From this foundation (and unity) we can then unite (and explain and solve many of the problems of) Einstein's Relativity, Quantum Theory and Cosmology.
Physics: Albert Einstein's Theory of Special & General Relativity - Briefly summarised (please
read the article, summaries do no justice to a complex idea).
Einstein's Special Relativity (no acceleration) - If there is no change in velocity of the In-Waves (velocity of light c) then there is no change in the location of the Wave-Center and thus no 'acceleration of the particle'.
Einstein's General Relativity (on Acceleration and Gravity) - Any change in velocity of the spherical In-Waves (from one direction, as they flow in through other matter) changes the future location of the Wave-Center (we 'see' as 'force accelerating a particle') and also changes the wavelength and ellipsoidal shape of the waves. This change in velocity of 'spherical' In-Waves and their wavelength / ellipsoidal shape (thus dimension) explains the Lorentz Transformations (which are founded on the changing shape of a sphere / ellipsoid).
This also explains why Einstein's General Relativity relates the changing geometry of a sphere / ellipsoid to the 'acceleration of a particle', and thus a Gravitational Field. Albert Einstein's spherical force field theory of matter and the 'curvature' of the 'four dimensional spacetime continuum' can now be understood as Spherical Standing Waves where the higher mass-energy density of Space near matter slows the Wave Velocity and causes the Ellipsoidal shape of the In-Waves to change and the wavelength / dimension to contract. This can be related to the changing location of the Wave-Centers (i.e. gravitational force accelerating particle).
Quantum Physics: Quantum Theory / Wave Mechanics - Historical Analysis and Solutions to Problems of Quantum
Theory (Quantum Mechanics).On Planck, Einstein, Bohr, de Broglie, Schrodinger,
Heisenberg, Born, Feynman, Wolff. 'Experiments on interference made
with particle rays have given brilliant proof that the wave character
of the phenomena of motion as assumed by Quantum Theory do, really,
correspond to the facts.' (Albert Einstein, 1940)
Quantum Theory: Particle Wave Duality - The particle-wave duality of Matter is obviously explained by the WSM. Spherical Standing Waves (Scalar Quantum Waves not Electromagnetic Vector Waves) cause the Particle effect at their Wave-Center.
Quantum Theory: Light Quanta (Photons) - Likewise the particle-wave duality of Light is also explained by the WSM. Light is a wave phenomena, but Standing Wave Interactions (Resonant Coupling) only occur at discrete frequencies which explains Schrodinger's wave equations and the discrete energy exchanges of Light Quanta (Photons).
Cosmology -The supreme task of the physicist is to arrive at those universal elementary laws from which the cosmos can be built by pure deduction (Albert Einstein, 1954). The Wolff-Haselhurst Cosmology explains a Perpetual Finite Spherical Universe within an Infinite Eternal Space. The Spherical Standing waves determines the size of our finite spherical universe within an infinite Space (Matter is large not small, we only 'see' the Wave-Center / 'particle' effect which has greatly confused physics). Huygens' Principle explains how other matter's out waves combine to form our matter's spherical In-Waves, which then deduces both Mach's Principle and the redshift with distance (without assuming Doppler effect due to an expanding universe / Big Bang). This also explains how matter interacts with all other matter in the universe (why we can see stars) as matter is the size of the universe, but we only 'see' the high wave amplitude wave-centers / 'particles'.

(Heraclitus, 500BC) All things come out of
the One and the One out of all things.
(Plato, Republic, 380BC )And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve the title of Philosophers. ... When the mind's eye rests on objects illuminated by truth and reality, it understands and comprehends them, and functions intelligently; but when it turns to the twilight world of change and decay, it can only form opinions, its vision is confused and its beliefs shifting, and it seems to lack intelligence. ... What is at issue is the conversion of the mind from the twilight of error to the truth, that climb up into the real world which we shall call true philosophy.
(George Berkeley, 1710) Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of scepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words.
(Kant, 1781) Natural science (physics) contains in itself synthetical judgments a priori, as principles. … Space then is a necessary representation a priori, which serves for the foundation of all external intuitions.

(Lama Govinda, 1969) According to ancient Indian tradition
the Universe reveals itself in two fundamental properties: as Motion
and as that in which motion takes place, namely Space. This
Space is called akasa and is that through which things step
into visible appearance, i.e., through which they possess extension or corporeality.
Akasa is derived from the root kas, 'to radiate, to shine', and has therefore
the meaning of 'ether' which is conceived as the medium of movement. The principle
of movement, however, is Prana the breath of life, the all-powerful,
all-pervading rhythm of the universe.
Though One Brahman is the Cause of the Many. Behold but One in all things it is the second that leads you astray. (Kabir)
The most important characteristic of the Eastern world view - one could almost say the essence of it - is the awareness of the unity and mutual interrelation of all things and events, the experience of all phenomena in the world as manifestations of a basic oneness. All things are seen as interdependent and inseparable parts of this cosmic whole; as different manifestations of the same ultimate reality.
In Indian philosophy, the main terms used by Hindus and Buddhists have dynamic connotations. The word Brahman is derived from the Sanskrit root brih – to grow - and thus suggests a reality which is dynamic and alive. The Upanishads refer to Brahman as ‘this unformed, immortal, moving’, thus associating it with motion even though it transcends all forms. The Rig Veda uses another term to express the dynamic character of the universe, the term Rita. This word comes from the root ri- to move. In its phenomenal aspect, the cosmic One is thus intrinsically dynamic, and the apprehension of its dynamic nature is basic to all schools of Eastern mysticism. They all emphasize that the universe has to be grasped dynamically, as it moves, vibrates and dances. (Fritjof Capra, 1972.)
