On the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM)

The notion that all these fragments is separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. Thus, as is now well known, this way of life has brought about pollution, destruction of the balance of nature, over-population, world-wide economic and political disorder and the creation of an overall environment that is neither physically nor mentally healthy for most of the people who live in it. Individually there has developed a widespread feeling of helplessness and despair, in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming mass of disparate social forces, going beyond the control and even the comprehension of the human beings who are caught up in it. (David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order, 1980)
begin this informal biography I thought I would entertain you with my thoughts
after 15 years living as a philosopher (I am 49, I have known of the Wave
Structure of Matter since 1997).
I believe this is very important if Humanity is to survive.
The world is in much more trouble than any of us realise.
Our minds are very limited and do not see this.
Some of these limitations are;
We can only think of one thing at a time.
We are creatures of habit, both in thoughts and actions.
We are blind to the obvious.
In many ways we behave as programmed machines.
Our subconscious, where our ideas are created, is hidden from us.
If we do not think of something then it is not important to us.
This is very dangerous when it comes to thoughts about truth and reality.
We (Humanity) are destroying Nature on this planet.
We evolved from Nature.
Evolution and ecology are central to Nature (to all things in fact, the WSM explains this).
Nature is much more subtly interconnected than we realise.
Because of this interconnection we depend upon Nature for our future survival.
Thus humanity is insane for destroying Nature, when we depend upon nature for our survival.
Our body, mind and behaviour are evolving and determined by three things;
Our physical environment (our physical bodies and all the other matter around us).
Our cultural environment (our minds and collective knowledge, be it truth or myth).
The most adaptable and powerful of these three is our mind and ideas, which dominate our behaviour.
Currently Humanity does not know the truth
about physical reality, which is the ultimate source of truth.
Thus there are many incorrect beliefs, many myths, that are causing this insanity (viral memes, ideas that infect minds and cause us harm).
The cure is to to replace these myths with truth.
We have made a terrible, and in hindsight, very stupid error in considering
matter to be made of tiny particles, when matter obviously interacts with
all other matter in the universe - that matter is large, a structure of
The spherical standing wave structure of matter in space explains this perfectly - once you know this then you realise how blind to the obvious we really are.
This true knowledge of physical reality, that matter is made of waves in space, is the cure for this ongoing insanity of Humanity.
It makes us realise how subtly we vibrate with everything around us, we are really cosmic creatures, quite amazing and difficult for our minds to comprehend.
We will realise how important Nature is.
How easy it is to extract energy from the sun with no pollution.
I am convinced that evolution (motion / change) and ecology (interconnection)
are central to all things as they relate to the necessary connection and
the underlying dynamic unity of reality that is the source of all knowledge
and truth (and known for thousands of years by mystics and philosophers).
So stop and look around you and think about it.
All the things you experience in the space around you are connected together and able to change, to move around. This is the evolution and ecology I am talking about, the real physical world, this space that we all commonly experience as one thing and all the objects in it. The evolution and ecology of Nature on earth is amazing, the evolution and ecology of the matter of the universe that ultimately causes / creates this is mind blowing really. Just simple spherical in and out wave structures, but each wave-center particle is really the size of the observable universe, forming complex wave patterns derived from interacting with a billion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion other wave-center's in and out waves. We humans are one of the more amazing wave structures of the universe, our minds so complex and still poorly understood, certainly remarkable in their conscious awareness and creative will (ability to understand and influence the evolution and ecology of matter in the universe).
An important and obvious truth is that the evolution and ecology of life of earth significantly effects and maintains the evolution and ecology of the earth's atmosphere, e.g. plants produce oxygen which constitutes 20% of the air we breath and necessary for our survival, and oxygen is the source of ozone in the upper atmosphere that filter out UV light. In fact the earth's atmosphere is very complex, poorly understood, and critical for our survival from high energy radiation from the sun / universe (the true source of evolution and ecology, the interconnection of matter across the universe a a spherical wave structure of space).
I have always been good at understanding how machines work. From a young
age I could pull apart things like toasters, lawn mowers, any mechanical
thing really. But to me it is obvious - after some examination of a machine
you can see how they work, how all the parts connect together in a logical
manner that enables it to function (I am currently building a Stirling engine).
Surprisingly to me, I have found that most people are actually not good
at this, whereas to me it just seems obvious.
I have now come to realise that this knowledge of machines is directly related to evolution and ecology, how the different parts move (change, evolve) in an interconnected manner (ecology) and that once you knew this then you knew the truth about that machine and how it works.
This ability enabled me to build a machine that I sold in 1990 allowing me to live simply without having to work. Moving to the country I became curious about nature and over several years, how the universe itself worked, the underlying physical reality behind Nature that seems in many ways to act as a machine.
This is why I chose to study the history and evolution and ecology of physics, philosophy and metaphysics (I think theology is covered by these three subjects). That being a generalist is in harmony with the evolution and ecology of knowledge, thus all academic specialists should be required to study physics, philosophy and metaphysics, this would remove a great deal of nonsense from the sciences.
And it was from this study that I came to the idea that matter was a spherical in and out wave structure, as I was trying to understand 2 things;
i) How the earth sun and moon were connected together. Thus I read the truly great mind of Einstein as his general relativity covers gravity (Einstein was a wonderful man, a dear friend to any thoughtful mind). Having also read Lorentz, I was importantly aware that you can deduce relativity equally from absolute space or from the relative motion of matter in that space. Mathematical physicists use both which I find deceptive (reality is one or the other).
ii) How an electron can move from one wave function to another when bound in an atom / molecule and thus emit / absorb light. The obvious question is what is this connection between light and matter, between waves and particles. Thus I read Feynman's 'Strange Theory of Light and Matter" and became quite annoyed by the delight with which he presents such a strange version of reality, with anti particles moving backwards in time, photons being their own anti particle, particles behaving as waves.
I have presented a lot of that knowledge on this website, to me it is now obvious that matter is a spherical standing wave in space, as then both relativity and quantum physics make sense and are united simply and sensibly. And you should also realise that we have a big advantage over these scientists as we have far more knowledge - they worked out a lot of complex things while completely blind to how it all worked! Now you can understand it all very simply (the beauty of truth and reality).
Realising that the majority of humans do not seem to be logical in the strict way that my mind is (that is largely genetic I suspect but also requires knowledge of philosophy and the sciences), and having a solid foundation of knowledge, it is easy to see how easy it is for humans to deceive themselves. Many imagine things that do not really exist, believe foolish things that cause themselves and others harm. As these ideas (viral memes) evolve within people's minds they can also be infected to others through language and symbols (interconnected wave patterns at a fundamental level, and very similar to how viruses spread on computers). In both cases we see evolution and ecology at play. of ideas that make up our human cultural knowledge.
Because of our machinelike nature, we are programmed by practice, by repetition.
Advertising works on this principle of repetition, likewise politics and its repetitive but ultimately meaningless slogans. At times there are rapid infections, as occurs when leaders use slogans to infect the minds of the citizens to fight their enemies, be they states or races or cultures. And clearly humans, as tribal animals, have evolved instincts to do this, it makes your tribe stronger.
Now, collectively, due to our agile bodies and creative minds and machines we have imagined and built, humans have become the dominant tribe on earth, of other life on earth. And due to our success, we have overpopulated the earth and are now destroying the evolution and ecology of life that maintains life on earth, including the lives of all humans.
Your children will be most affected by this.
Evolution can be brutal, we see this throughout history with wars, diseases, natural disasters. To avoid / minimize this brutality we need to act wisely founded on truth and reality (obviously). Yet humanity does not - it is heading for disaster and brutality in fact.
Link to this knowledge - just grab the page url (with a some quoted text is good) and stick it somewhere on the internet. We now rank in top ten for many terms - help us to get to number one - help us protect humanity from cultural myths / viral memes with the one and only remedy, a true understanding of physical reality!
The internet now provides humanity with the evolution and ecology of knowledge to do this. Google is the machine, we just need a few more links to be in top 5 in many academic subjects. And then the world will change to truth and reality - history shows that the power of truth overcomes myths, corrects errors in thinking, provides a source of wisdom that may safely guide us through this at times treacherous space.
"Humanity is going to need a substantially
new manner of thinking if it is to survive."
Geoff Haselhurst. May, 2009.
The following was written 8 years ago, I have updated it a bit, I find
it hard to write about myself, so I hope it is reasonable.
It provides some ideas about me, but only a very tiny picture, a page of text does little justice to explain the complexities of a philosophical mind after 15 years thinking about truth and reality.
I am certain that the electron is just a spherical standing wave in space. That we are all very complexly evolved vibrating space - interconnected with all other matter in the universe. To me this is now obvious, thus my thoughts of humanity are necessarily rather radical. Yet to me they seem obvious and important, given the problems our world now faces.
Below you will find some of my favourite philosophy quotes, a summary of my history, and at the top of this page links to the main philosophy, physics, metaphysics, evolution, education and politics articles that I have written. I believe that Reality (how matter exists) has been discovered and that this knowledge of the Wave Structure of Matter in Space is (obviously) critical to the future survival of humanity. So I hope that you will take the time to read it. Truth is always simple and obvious once known!
And it should be startling to all scientists / philosophers that simplicity
(Occam's Razor) has never been applied to science itself (search the internet
simple science theory of reality - only this website discusses this).
You find that there is only one solution, the Wave Structure of Matter in Space. Then you can deduce from this to show that it works. There is no opinion involved. So I hope everyone who visits this page will read it - and help promote it on the internet. (I realise that most will not, apathy is a common human trait, but there are a few of you who care about science and society, realise the importance of truth and reality for Humanity).
(It is short & concise - takes about 10 minutes to read)
And once this website is re-written / cleaned up (late 2009 I hope) then
Karene and I plan on working in the area of film / documentary. So we have
put up a page with some of our 'creative' ideas. Would love to hear from
people interested in such things!
All the best,
Geoff Haselhurst (updated January 2009)
PS - I would appreciate people's thoughts on the two articles above - and the following four (below) are also very important. As i see things, a mind is a creative construction - you must build it with good quality knowledge to protect you from being deceived. This requires some effort to read things several times and think about them - and always question why things are true - look for the source of truth (most people just say things are true!)
http://www.spaceandmotion.com/metaphysics.htm - On causation and necessary connection (how matter is connected together in the space around you).
http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Metaphysics-Principles-Reality.htm (Science is limited because it is empirically founded on our senses - and we only see effects, not the causal connections).
http://www.spaceandmotion.com/mathematical-physics/logic-truth-reality.htm - On how mathematics can exist in the universe due to the wave structure of matter - which has quantities (velocity, frequency, wavelength) that are logically connected by the properties of the space wave medium.
http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Philosophy.htm - I am very proud of this essay. It has taken me ten years to write! It shows how to solve the fundamental problems of philosophy (on necessary connection / truth).
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.
... The sweetest and most inoffensive path
of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can
either remove any obstructions in this way, or open up any new prospect,
ought so far to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind. And though these researches
may appear painful and fatiguing, it is with some minds as with some bodies,
which being endowed with vigorous and florid health, require severe exercise,
and reap a pleasure from what, to the generality of mankind, may seem burdensome
and laborious. Obscurity, indeed, is painful to the mind as well as to the
eye; but to bring light from obscurity, by whatever labour, must needs be
delightful and rejoicing. ... Of the same class of virtues with courage
is that undisturbed philosophical tranquility, superior to pain, sorrow,
anxiety, and each assault of adverse fortune. Conscious of his own virtue,
say the philosophers, the sage elevates himself above every accident of
life; and securely placed in the temple of wisdom, looks down on inferior
mortals engaged in pursuit of honours, riches, reputation, and every frivolous
enjoyment. ... And the nearer we can approach in practice to this sublime
tranquility and indifference (for we must distinguish it from a stupid insensibility),
the more secure enjoyment shall we attain within ourselves, and the more
greatness of mind shall we discover to the world.
(David Hume, 1737)
The scientist does not study nature because
it is useful;
he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful.
If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing,
and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.
(Jules Henri Poincare)
If it comes to pride with a philosopher then
it is a great pride. His work never refers him to a public, the applause
of the masses, and the hailing chorus of contemporaries. To wander lonely
along his path belongs to the nature of the philosopher. His talents are
the most rare, in a certain sense the most unnatural and at the same time
exclusive and hostile even to kindred talents. The wall of his self sufficiency
must be of diamond, if it is not to be demolished and broken, for everything
is in motion against him. His journey to immortality is more cumbersome
and impeded than any other and yet nobody can believe more firmly than the
philosopher that he will attain the goal by that journey. He has truth;
the wheel of time may roll whither it pleases, never can it escape from
truth. It is important to hear that such men have lived.
(Friedrich Nietzsche, 1890)
Suppose, then, that all men were sick or deranged,
save one or two of them who were healthy and of right mind. It would then
be the latter two who would be thought to be sick and deranged and the former
(Aristotle, Metaphysics 340BC)
I don't know anything that gives me greater
pleasure, or profit either, than talking or listening to philosophy. But
when it comes to ordinary conversation, such as the stuff you talk about
financiers and the money market, well, I find it pretty tiresome personally,
and I feel sorry that my friends should think they're being very busy when
they're really doing absolutely nothing. Of course, I know your idea of
me: you think I'm just a poor unfortunate, and I shouldn't wonder if your
right. But then I don't THINK that you're unfortunate - I know you are.
When a man no longer has to work for his living, he should, 'practice excellence'.
For myself, I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth; as having a mind nimble and versatile enough to catch the resemblances of things … and at the same time steady enough to fix and distinguish their subtler differences; as being gifted by nature with desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and as being a man that neither affects what is new nor admires what is old, and that hates every kind of imposture. (Francis Bacon on critical thinking, 1605)
To inquire after the meaning or object of one's
own existence or that of all creatures has always seemed absurd from an
objective point of view. And yet everybody has certain ideals which determine
the direction of his endeavors and judgments. In this sense I have never
looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves-this ethical basis
I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals which have lighted my way, and
time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have
been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of
like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally
unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have
seemed to me empty. The trite objects of human efforts-possessions, outward
success, luxury-have always seemed to me contemptible.
My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a 'lone traveler' and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude - feelings which increase with the years. One becomes sharply aware, but without regret, of the limits of mutual understanding and consonance with other people. No doubt, such a person loses some of his innocence and unconcern; on the other hand, he is largely independent of the opinions, habits, and judgments of his fellows and avoids the temptation to build his inner equilibrium upon such insecure foundations.
(Albert Einstein - Ideas and Opinions, 1954)
This is a partly personal polemic and apology from Geoffrey on what we are up to and why we may not answer emails for several months.
We are slowly re-writing main pages of this website. Much of it was written several years ago (some is good, some is poor and really bugs me). However, it takes time to understand new knowledge and write it up well / simply. Hopefully this letter will make this clearer, by explaining a bit about myself, and what Karene and I are up to.
I will begin with a few details of what I am like, as they apply to what follows (not because of any ego).
I like to know the truth about things, and try to be careful and thorough in working things out. I like precision and certainty. This applies to how I think, how I speak and use language, and explains a lot about the things i do, why I call myself a natural philosopher. I enjoy thinking, which is what I do most of every day, yet I now realize that the majority of people are not like this. (I realize most people are busy, and then too exhausted to want to think.) I enjoy understanding how things work, how the various parts connect together, how things are adapting and evolving. I like to invent and build things, which is how I made enough money to retire at 30 and go live in Nature. Karene thinks I am interesting to live with, but also a pedantic pain in the ass at times. So I also try and have a sense of humor, a sense of stupid fun.
Since the age of about 14 I have found it self evident that evolution
is true, it is logical, and I see evidence of it all around me. This
is why I moved from the city to live in the bush (back in 1992). I
wander about in Nature every day so I see this process of evolution,
particularly with how plants have adapted and evolved. (There are
also quite a few kangaroos, and we see a few venomous tiger snakes
over summer, so you watch where you walk at times! But most of our
native animals are extinct or rare - we see a lot more rabbits, cats
and foxes, which partly explains why Australia has the greatest rate
of species extinction in the world).
Anyway, it is evident from this that I am disturbed about the state
of our world. But more so because i believe that Humanity has finally
worked out true knowledge of reality, knowledge that will make a huge
difference to improving things (and stressed because this website
needs so much work to do justice to this knowledge). Basically
Space is the 'stuff' that exists and matter is made up of waves in
Space. All matter interactions are really wave interactions,
there are no separate and discrete particles and continuous forces
/ fields to connect them, no particle / wave duality. It is all simply
explained with waves.
I have now thought about Space and the Wave Structure of Matter for 10 years, while also reading on physics philosophy and metaphysics. I made an effort to start with the ancients and work my way to the present such that i understood the knowledge completely and correctly. (One thing evolution tells us is that we must read the history of knowledge from the original minds where possible.) It also seemed logical to me that if I correctly knew what reality was then I should be able to explain numerous problems of knowledge. I now believe that I can do exactly that.
It is perfectly clear to me that Science does work, while our senses may be misleading, they nonetheless provide us with information about the world around us such that we can then use reason to work out what really exists. We do exist and move about in space, the world around us is not just an idea, the space you experience all around you really is there (that is why we can all commonly experience existing in it, e.g. as a crowd watching a football game, all cheering at the same time).
The Wave Structure of Matter is simple, and very obvious once known.
But you must realize that your senses are deceiving you in thinking
there are solid separate bodies (you would be less deceived if you
wore x-ray goggles so you could see through things, which is also
a true view of the world around you).
The last two years have been rather different as Karene and I began
building this website. Given my nature, I have studied / experimented
with Google a lot and now have a good idea of how to build pages that
rank well (which explains why this website gets around 50,000 page
views a day). And I am not ignoring you, the real human people who
visit this site - I hope the pages will also be very simple, elegant
and clean, as I now realize this is necessary for the internet.
So I hope over the next six months to really improve things here, make it very simple sensible and obvious that Science does actually work, there is a reality that we can sensibly imagine and describe with everyday language, and thus there are absolute truths that necessarily arise from physical reality. Truths that Humanity must know if it is to live wisely.
And i hope you find this all very interesting and important and get motivated to help change the world with true knowledge. I think we need somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 links from other websites to get in the top ten in Google for pretty much all the relevant main academic subjects. So even if just 1 in a 1,000 of you help, that is still 15 links a day, which would mean that we would reach our target over the next 12 months.
Anyway, this gives you some idea of what i am like, what Karene and i are up to. We are very committed to this work, we just depend on convincing a few others to help. And please be a bit understanding with this website, it is still a rough draft, but nonetheless has a lot of important knowledge from the past 3,000 years which is both interesting and important.
1959 - Born Perth, Western Australia, 10th November
1982 - Completed a Bachelor of Education, Nedlands College of Advanced Education, (Science and Mathematics)
1983-86 Taught Maths / Science at Trinity College, Carine High School
1980-90 Played and coached state level hockey for Western Australia.
1986-91 Inventor/developer of an electronics manufacturing business, which I sold in 1991 (and effectively retired!).
1991-2009 For the past 17 years I have lived in the country (near a beautiful coastline on the west coast of Australia). I try to live simply, reading (physics, philosophy, theology, metaphysics), walking in Nature, and thinking (as is the nature of the philosopher!). All my work is devoted to the protection of Nature through knowing the Truth about Reality.
1. At school when I was first taught Darwinian evolution it seemed logical and obvious to me. I have been a biological evolutionist ever since. I should add here that until recently I would have described myself as an Atheist Evolutionist but I now realise my ignorance (largely from reading Hinduism / Buddhism, Spinoza, Cicero, and Tolstoy). That religion (from Latin religare - to bind) is about our connection to the One Universe. Thus I would now describe myself as a Pantheist. That I am a part of the Universe, and this One Universe is what Causes and Creates all things (and is known as God, Brahman, Tao). This is explained on this website.
2. Over the next fifteen years, to age thirty, I began to realise that all things were evolving, computers, cars, human civilisation, my mind, my immune system, absolutely everything could be, (must be!) understood in terms of evolution. This was purely from my own observation, I did not read anything on the subject.
3. At age thirty, having sold my business I was able to retire, as long as I lived reasonably simply and sensibly.
4. So I began to read, and to think more on evolution. I decided to move
to the country, as this seemed more natural, how we evolved to live.
I discovered over the next five years that Nature had been destroyed by humans. We live, for the first time, in a Post Nature world, were the human mind and culture is now the dominant factor controlling evolution of life on Earth. I became very depressed by this, because I saw how ignorant most humans were (though also generally kind and with good intentions) and that this damage was dangerous to the future (my dear children), was ugly and stupid, that glorious life/nature which created us was being brutalised and destroyed.
5. I thought on how I could help the environment, and also give some meaning to my own life, and I came to the conclusion that TRUTH was the best hope for humanity and for protecting Nature (sic).
6. This then led me to philosophy - as the study of truth; and physics
- as the study of what exists, to what is actually evolving.
This is why I began to read on Evolution, Physics and Philosophy, and later, Metaphysics and Theology.
7. I became very interested in gravity (e.g. how the earth could orbit the sun when they were separated by space). From reading Lorentz, Einstein, and Feynman I realised that Einstein's Relativity is founded on Lorentz's Theory of the Electron which assumed that an absolute Space (aether) existed and that matter was a particle that 'generated' a spherical electromagnetic field in the space around it. Further, Einstein correctly realised that both the particle and the field could not exist and he tried to develop a pure field theory of matter (he failed, but he was correct that discrete particles are an illusion). It then occurred to me that the particle and the field could be sensibly united by assuming that Space existed as a wave-medium and that the particle and the e-m field were caused by a spherical standing wave in space. Thus gravity was simply the slowing of the spherical In-waves as they flowed in through other matter (wave-motions). This was similar to Feynman's ideas of spherical vector electromagnetic waves, but replacing the electromagnetic waves with scalar waves (defined by wave amplitude only, i.e. real waves as described (and misunderstood) in Quantum Theory).
These ideas date back to 1997, and a year later I started using the Internet and found the work of Maths Physicist Milo Wolff on the Wave Structure of Matter (which he first formalised around 1985). This was a remarkable experience for me as it was like reading my own ideas, yet Milo Wolff made his discoveries from knowledge of Quantum Theory and Light, rather than Einstein's Relativity and Gravity. Over the past five years I have become very close to Milo and together we have now explained most of the problems of Relativity, Quantum Theory and Cosmology.
Biography number 2 (you can take your pick or edit from each!)
I should begin by saying that first and foremost I am a Philosopher. This simply means that I believe that we must know the Truth to be Wise, and that Truth ultimately comes from Reality. i.e. That theories / metaphysics are true when their necessary deductions from Principles correspond exactly to what we observe by observation and experiment. (I suppose this means that I am a 'scientific philosopher'.) I agree with Plato, Spinoza and Hume;
And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve
the title of philosophers. (Plato, 380 BC)
He who would distinguish the true from the false must have an adequate idea of what is true and false. (Spinoza, 1632-1677)
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.(David Hume, 1737)
My main motivation is the preservation of Nature, my
love of my children and my partner. My main interests are reading, writing
I suppose I live as a bit of a 'hippie' evolutionary philosopher, thus I choose to live in Nature (on 650 acres of bush on the very beautiful coast of Australia). I walk everyday in Nature (and rarely wear shoes). I eat a good diet of fruit, nuts, vegetables, fish (which my partner Karene catch!), a bit of meat, and drink lots of clean rainwater.
I read, think and write on evolution, philosophy, physics, theology, metaphysics, and the evolution of human society.
I appreciate the truth of both Darwinian evolution and our resultant genetic instincts; and also Cultural evolution, of how our knowledge and technology are evolving and changing how we think and live. (Thus my interest in the Internet which is profoundly changing how people (and businesses) work, think, and live.)
I try to live by the Truth as I can best determine it, and to always speak
I appreciate that we have evolved from Nature, and thus ultimately depend upon Nature for our survival. Sadly, and tragically, I also realise that Nature is being rapidly destroyed on our planet, and I know that this is a very foolish and dangerous path for humanity to take. (Thus all my work is ultimately devoted to the protection of Nature, the arguments though are philosophical, i.e. that they be true and hence important.)
My most significant influences would be, in order of reading - Rousseau,
Thoreau, Einstein, Kant, Wolff, Leibniz, Spinoza, Aristotle, Plato, Hume
- but I have read many hundreds of books on philosophy, physics, etc. over
the past fifteen years. History has many beautiful, elegant and intelligent
minds that can teach us a great deal. This is one thing that evolution has
taught me, to understand ourselves we should understand our evolution, and
this means both our Darwinian and Cultural evolution. This requires the
reading of many books from history (and to always try to read the original
source, not the later interpretation from a lesser mind!)
So there you have my brief summary of my life as it is now. Let me finally add a few details from my past.
i) I was a rat bag student from a smart family!
ii) I have a Bachelor of Education, and taught Maths & Science for four years (1983-86) at Trinity College and Carine High in Perth, Western Australia.
iii) I played and coached State level field hockey from 1980-90. Team
sports are not only fun, they teach us a lot about discipline and determination,
about the balance between our passions and our intellect!
iv) In 1987 I invented an electronics game which I sold in 1991. (Philosophers are invariably creative/inventive, always wanting to know how things work, and how they can be built to be better!)
v) I then retired from business and moved to a farm near Margaret River (a small country town now known for its wineries). Over four years, with some lovely help, I built a Limestone house that is known locally as the 'Castle'. (Our family traveled around Europe for 14 months when I was ten, sleeping in an old Peugeot van, and I was greatly influenced by the Architecture of the Gothic Cathedrals and ruined castles.)
vi) I became depressed by farming and the destruction of Nature and in
1996 moved to a beautiful bush property which extends down to the most magnificent

Thus you see that I live a privileged and fantastic life and feel obliged to contribute back to a world that has given me so much....

My dear children:
I rejoice to see you before me today, happy youth of a sunny and fortunate land.
Bear in mind that the wonderful things that you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labour in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honour it, and add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common.
If you always keep that in mind you will find meaning in life and work and acquire the right attitude towards other nations and ages.
Below are several letters of support from some very kind friends (who
I terribly neglect now that I live in the country!)

I have worked through 3/4 of your Chapter One on Truth and Reality: The Theoretical Foundations of Physics and their Unification for your book. I have stopped working at this point in order to send you what I have already done. So far your work is astounding. You have drawn out exactly the right material from Einstein's writing. I have learned from your writing a great deal of his thinking and his perspective of basic physics that I have never even dreamed of before. In a sense you have brought him back to life for me.
You are more like Einstein than me.
It has provided me with a new dimension of your skills and knowledge of
Science Philosophy. I have never known a person who understands the nature
of logic and scientific thinking as well as you do. I am truly impressed
with your skill and insight into the philosophy of physics. I realize how
important it is for modern physicists to understand how Einstein thought
and reasoned, but unfortunately they have forgotten or never knew. Hopefully
your writing will make up for this lack.
Dear Geoff, (May, 2001)
Your 'treatise' is superb! It covers an enormous ground, has human touches for the tired reader, and for the first time I have ever seen, brings the wisdom of older minds (Aristotle, Hume, Lorentz, Einstein, etc.) to bear upon the problems of cosmology.
Further it is so complete (if ANYTHING can be complete) that it will surely become a classic work on the philosophy of the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM). It is so simple that the conclusions are also very correct and valuable for any thinker. It contrast with many speculative books on cosmology (e.g. Smolin, Weinstein, Davies) that contain many opinions and 'hopes', it is filled with solid facts - presumably this is the value of philosophical thinking.
Your new use of the behaviour of the Spherical In-Waves to determine motion and acceleration (of the Wave-Center 'Particle') is a grand innovation to WSM, as is your simplified deduction of the 'Equation of the Cosmos' which is also innovative and clever. This is so very basic that it further enhances the display of the simplicity of Nature and the Truth of the WSM.
I am reading on page 6 of your Metaphysics of Space and Motion and I am
very impressed how the old philosophers got so close to the truth and your
ability to extract the truth from what they said, despite the carnival of
ideas that must have been passed around. Your work has continued to teach
me how to think and more deeply appreciate the meaning of the word TRUTH
which most of us treat so lightly never having learned what it means! Truth
and human Ego are perpetual combatants and ego usually wins.
In hind sight what the philosophers lacked to move ahead was just a knowledge of wave behaviour in spherical co-ordinates which became known only after the invention of optical apparatus and radio where such behaviour was measured and understood... say 1850-1900.
Despite this logic, the favourite wave of Physics and Electrical Engineering
texts and teachers is Vector waves in Cartesian x-y-z co-ordinates which
is patently foolish since the energy of such a wave is infinite, no matter
how small you make the amplitude. They like it because it is the only solution
of a vector wave equation which they desperately want to believe because
of Maxwell's Equations which they also want to believe are fundamental.
Logic is no match for Belief.
Is that why it took another century to find the WSM?
The next problem is HOW to get it published. The only journal I know that
accepts such large articles is the Review of Modern Physics. You will need
'influence' with the editors to get into this. Also maybe Physics Essays
- I know the editor and he likes new concepts, but it is a small circulation
journal. Is there a European journal that wants very long articles?
If we could persuade them, perhaps the Rockefeller or Ford or other Foundation would like to publish it.
Another possibility is to break it up into separate pieces or topics, even though that would be a shame. As Tom says, you will never get recognition unless you have a string of articles. Maybe the Astrophysical J would like a piece. The smaller the article, the easier it is to publish. Editors and referees tend to get antsy and fear criticism if articles are long, especially if they cannot understand the new work. What about the philosophy Journals? I don't know them.
I write this as a gift to Milo Wolff whom I admire and respect. I think
he is a beautiful person that I am privileged to know. Milo is a great thinker,
equal to Einstein in his awareness that;
Observation and experiment found reality, not mathematical theories (I like his open minded skepticism)
Logic, based upon certain principles, must correspond with our senses.
Milo is remarkable in that he kept an open mind his entire life (discovery of Wave Structure of Matter at age 63!) and realised that there must be a theory which deduces the laws of Nature. Currently these laws are determined by measurement alone (empirical), they had no theoretical (metaphysical) foundation.
Milo has discovered the theoretical foundations of the laws of Nature, and thus the theoretical foundations of reality.
I am quite certain that the name Milo Wolff will be remembered as one of the earliest and greatest of the the pioneer philosopher physicists who solved what was pondered upon by such greats as; Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Galileo, Newton, Leibniz, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Faraday, Maxwell, Lorentz, Mach, Einstein, Planck, Bohr, de Broglie, Dirac, Schrodinger, etc. .... a tiny fraction of the great minds of history that have wondered about what we are as humans, how we have come to exist.
Finally this can now be understood. We are complexly evolved interactions
of wave centers of spherical standing waves the size of our universe.
Trillions and trillions of wave centers in a pin head, thus we are incredibly complex!
These IN and OUT waves obviously (once known!) explain how we are able to interact with the world around us, and thus how we can see distant stars (light) and how the earth can, for example, orbit the sun at such a distance (gravity). Matter is large! It is spatially extended as a spherical standing wave. Just because we only 'see' the wave center, as a tiny particle, does not mean we should be so naive to think that it is only the particle which exists. (How do tiny particles interact with other particles distant in space???!) The spherical standing wave structure of matter becomes very obvious once considered.
When we look at modern society (2003), it is clear both that;
1. Current humans have no comprehension of true reality. This is not their fault, it is just our current state of human cultural evolution. We largely live based upon market economics and 'cultural truths' (myths).
2. If all humans grew up educated to true reality, to the spherical standing wave structure of matter, then they would think and behave profoundly differently.
In time the entire world will understand truth and reality, and the world will forever change because of it. I think it fair to say that this is the greatest step that humanity shall ever take. A step that shall shake and crumble the structures of current human knowledge and lead to their new construction from firm and abiding foundations from One thing, Space and its properties as a wave medium for spherical wave motions (matter). Thus I believe, quite passionately, that from this ruin shall come a beautiful revival, a blossoming, flowering renaissance of our world founded upon truth. For the first time ever, human knowledge will be constructed from the firm foundations of true knowledge of reality. And only then will the things we do with good intentions work, for they will be finally founded on a truth that will be logically consistent, and will thus work for us.
This truth will be common to all of humanity, thus it will unite eastern philosophy with western science and increase the wisdom of both.
This utopia is the world we continually evolve based upon truth - Where each individual has free access to true knowledge such that they may make informed decisions about how to live.
Now I am not completely romantic. This truth will, at first, be hard on
humanity, and will be passionately fought for decades/centuries. But eventually
the power of logic and its exactness with our senses will win out and be
accepted. This acceptance of reality will lead to many fundamental changes
in our consciousness. I mention the four most important as I see it;
1. There is a fundamental reality (a physical space as a wave medium) and matter is the particle effect we see at the wave center of spherical standing waves in this space, these wave systems are the size of the universe - thus humans are the size of the universe (which explains why we can see stars across the universe, as we are a part of them, and they are a part of us).
2. We have evolved as complex interactions of wave centers. We are machines in a sense, like computers but far more complex. Our software is the cultural ideas which have been created by others over thousands of years.
3. Because matter is spatially extended and so large it interacts with trillions and trillions and trillions .... of other wave systems/centers in the universe and this has allowed a complex ecology of interconnectedness to occur. Humans are only now realising this which is a great problem as most of the Nature and ecology of life on earth has been destroyed by humans and replaced by agriculture. This is clearly foolish and not sustainable.
4. There is no god to guide our fates, humanity must learn that we created the gods, but in reality it is we who are godlike. Only we humans can save ourselves, there is no one else. Humanity can only save itself with true knowledge of reality, anything else will not work! (The road to hell is paved with good intentions)
5. Morality - Matter, and hence humans, exist as structures of the entire
universe, thus the fundamental morality of 'Do unto others as you would
have done unto yourself' is true, as the other is in fact part of the self
(our discrete bodies are an illusion since we only see the wave-centers)
So I see this knowledge, first formalised by Milo Wolff, of the Wave Structure of Matter as the greatest gift yet for humanity. And personally, Milo has given me the greatest gift of confirming (mathematically) my own ideas on the wave structure of matter, that I am not alone in being certain that reality can be known.
Kindly and sincerely,
To Whom it May Concern.
My association with Geoff started in the late 1980s when he approached
my company, OMNITRONICS, to design and manufacture a revolutionary technology
game called Quasar. His incredible tenacity to get the 'job' done was evident
on many occasions during that project. And it this is evident on his latest
venture into understanding the smallest detail of the Universe.
Several years ago Geoff provided me with some of his early thoughts on wave theory since he was aware of my own interest in science and astronomy. I am not sure I understand or agree with his hypothesis, however I attribute that to my own limited intellect rather than any errors of reasoning on his part. One thing I am sure about, and that is his absolute honesty in the pursuit of the truth.
Geoff has tackled many seemingly impossible tasks. These have included the QUASAR project, his 'Castle' at Witchcliffe and now, perhaps, a solution to the Unified Theory of the Universe.
All I can do is wish him all the best in his latest crusade and count myself lucky to be considered one of his friends.

To Whom It May Concern
I write in support of Geoffrey Haselhurst's application
for the Peter Gruber Prize for Cosmology based on his thesis;
'The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter'
I have known Geoffrey as a great friend, teaching colleague and business
partner over the last twenty years. Over that time he has always sought
to find solutions to issues and over the last ten years that quest has intensified
to resolving a basic truth pertaining to matter. I do not have, nor do I
contend that I have, the ability to comprehend the finer points of Geoffrey's
assertions however from my discussions with him, there seems to be much
merit in his Metaphysics.
Geoff has always been a person who engages in the truth. His integrity is beyond question often to his own personal detriment. I have the utmost respect for him as a person who has a genuinely inquiring intellect of great capacity. I believe that it is people like Geoffrey that make a difference to this world - he is prepared to step out from that which is comfortable and dare to go beyond boundaries that so many others are confined. He is worthy of encouragement by an award such as the Peter Gruber Prize because he is taking thought to another plane - it might be the next evolution of human truth.
I wish him every success in this endeavour.
