Important Note (September, 2012) - I have submitted an essay to a competition on the foundations of physical reality. It explains how matter and fields are just two different ways that space vibrates. It is very simple and obvious once understood, has profound consequences for humanity, our sense of self in the universe knowing that we vibrate with everything around us. Please read it, rate it, and I will reply to all comments. Thanks, Geoff haselhurst (11th Sept. 2012)

Site Introduction (2012): Despite several thousand years of failure to correctly understand physical reality (hence the current postmodern view that this is impossible) there is an obvious solution.
Simply unite Science (Occam's Razor / Simplicity) with Metaphysics (Dynamic Unity of Reality) and describe reality from only one substance existing, as Leibniz wrote;
'Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another'.
Given we all experience many minds and many material things, but always in one common Space, we are thus required to describe physical reality in terms of Space. We then find there is only one solution, a Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) where the electron is a spherical standing wave. See Wave Diagrams.
In hindsight the error was obvious, to try and describe an interconnected reality with discrete 'particles', which then required forces / fields to connect them in space and time. This was always just a mathematical solution which never explained how matter was connected across the universe.

I realise that there are a lot of 'crackpot' theories about truth and reality on the internet, but it is easy to show that the Wave Structure of Matter is the correct solution as it deduces the laws of Nature (the fundamentals of Physics & Philosophy) perfectly (there are no opinions). While the Wave Structure of Matter is obvious once known, to begin it will seem strange simply because it takes time for our minds to adjust to new knowledge.

For those who are religious / spiritual, I think Albert Einstein expresses the enlightened view of God. He writes 'I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.' This harmony arises from a Wave Structure of Matter in Space (we are all interconnected in this space that we all commonly experience). This unity of reality (God, Brahman, Tao, Spirit, Energy, Light, Vibration) is central to all major world religions, thus their common moral foundation of 'Do unto others as to thyself' as the other is part of the self.

Please help our world (human society / life on earth) by sharing this knowledge.
Clearly our world is in great trouble due to human overpopulation and the resultant destruction of Nature, climate change and the pollution of air, land and water. The best solution to these problems is to found our societies on truth and reality rather than past myths and customs (which invariably cause harm).
We are listed as one of the Top Philosophy Websites on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week, and rank in the top 20 in Google for many academic search terms - so we just need a bit of help to get in the top five. Given the Censorship in Physics / Philosophy of Science Journals (founded on the standard model / particle physics) the internet is clearly the best way to get new knowledge visible to the world.
A world now in great need of wisdom from truth and reality.

Physics: Vortex Theory
The Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) provides a more Simple & Sensible Description of Reality than Vortex Theory

The inseparability of time and space emerged in connection with electrodynamics, or the law of propagation of light. With the discovery of the relativity of simultaneity, space and time were merged in a single continuum in a way similar to that in which the three dimensions of space had previously merged into a single continuum. Physical space was thus extended to a four dimensional space which also included the dimension of time. The four dimensional space of the special theory of relativity is just as rigid and absolute as Newton's space.
(Albert Einstein, 1954)

The results of calculation indicate that if matter be distributed uniformly, the universe would necessarily be spherical. ...
I must not fail to mention that a theoretical argument can be adduced in favour of the hypothesis of a finite universe. The general theory of relativity teaches that the inertia of a given body is greater as there are more ponderable masses in proximity to it; thus it seems very natural to reduce the total inertia of a body to interactions between it and the other bodies in the universe, as indeed, ever since Newton’s time, gravity has been completely reduced to interaction between bodies. (Albert Einstein, 1954)


Vortex Theory has become a popular alternative science theory over the past few years. The foundation of Vortex Theory, that Space is a liquid which flows, does not explain what exists but the human naive real world of sense experiences. Vortex Theory does not explain Mach's Principle and how matter interacts with all other matter in the universe, the Lorentz Transformations and Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
On the other hand, the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) and the Metaphysics of Space and Motion simply solves these problems by explaining that Space exists with the properties of a wave-medium.

Below is a list of arguments for why Space cannot 'flow' are some good summaries of Vortex Theory. On the left side of this page you will find links to the main articles which explain and solve many of the problems of postmodern Metaphysics, Physics and Philosophy from the new foundation of the Metaphysics of Space and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM).

Geoff Haselhurst

Eight Arguments for Why Space cannot Flow

1. Concept of Flowing / Liquids applies to matter.

There is no justifications for applying concept of 'flowing' to space itself. Flowing is an empirical thing, not a metaphysical thing - and all philosophers of science realise that reality is not founded on empirical things.

"Rather, they start this, displaying it to the senses, .... and go on to offer more or less rigorous demonstrations of the per se attributes of their proprietary genera. This sort of procedure is inductive and it is as plain as a pikestaff that it does not amount to a demonstration of essence or of what it is to be a thing." (Aristotle, Metaphysics)
"But also philosophy is not about perceptible substances (they, you see, are prone to destruction)" (Aristotle, Metaphysics)

2. Flowing matter is understood as loosely bound wave centers in a nearly rigid (wave medium) space.

The Wave Structure of Matter explains how liquids (and solids / gases) form due to the interaction of the spherical In and Out-Waves in a nearly rigid space / wave medium. Thus there is no need to apply the concept of 'flowing' to Space itself.

3. For Space to flow it cannot be continuously connected, but must be made of loosely connected parts

This causes two fundamental problems for human knowledge;
i) You are no longer describing reality from One substance thus you loose necessary connection.
ii) You must explain what these parts are and how they are connected, which requires assuming existence of many things.
(Basically you are defeating the whole purpose and beauty of WSM in explaining how matter is interconnected - which is the central problem of particle / field theories in space time.)

4. You are applying motion twice to space, as Wave Motion and as Flowing Motion of Space.

It would be strange indeed if, at the most fundamental level of reality, Motion existed in two different forms, as both Wave Motion of Space (which explains 'flowing' motion) and also as flowing motion of Space.

5. Thus you are not abiding by Ockham's Razor, the most simple theory that explains most things is best.

In fact you could discuss ideas of flowing space for the next 100 years and never resolve anything, as it is obvious it will lead to
endless difficulties. (And history shows this is true, vortex theories have been around for centuries).

6. If Space flowed with planets as they orbit / spin then our observations of the universe would be affected.

7. Flowing Space contradicts Einstein's relativity which is partly correct as follows;

i) Matter affects Space
ii) Matter is spherically spatially extended - not a particle.
iii) Space-Time (really waves in Space) is rigid.

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 (measuring-rods and clocks), nor therefore any space-time intervals in the physical sense. But this ether may not be thought of as endowed with the quality characteristic of ponderable media, as consisting of parts which may be tracked through time. The idea of motion (i.e. flowing motion of particles) may not be applied to it. (Albert Einstein, Leiden Lecture, 1920)

"The inseparability of time and space emerged in connection with electrodynamics, or the law of propagation of light. With the discovery of the relativity of simultaneity, space and time were merged in a single continuum in a way similar to that in which the three dimensions of space had previously merged into a single continuum. Physical space was thus extended to a four dimensional space which also included the dimension of time. The four dimensional space of the special theory of relativity is just as rigid and absolute as Newton's space. (Albert Einstein, 1954)

I should add that Einstein was very close to the truth in realising that matter was not a 'particle' but rather that matter, space and time are all part of one thing.

When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence:
Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.(Albert Einstein)

His error was to work with fields and describe matter as spherical fields in spacetime, rather than spherical waves in space. His matter curves spacetime is correct once you realise that spacetime is waves in space, and these waves do affect the properties of the wave medium (e.g. curving of waves / light as it propagates past sun.

(Also see other science articles on Einstein below)

8. Finally, there is simply no empirical evidence to support it. It does not explain anything that the WSM in rigid space explains.

There is simply no justification in introducing it as a concept.

And a 9th point about vortex theory. Matter interacts spherically, vortices do not explain this, the WSM does. Matter interacts with all other matter in universe, vortex theory does not explain this, WSM does (with mathematical precision).

While we can certainly imagine 'flowing space' it is prudent to remember the words of Leibniz;

... a distinction must be made between true and false ideas, and that too much rein must not be given to a man's (woman's) imagination under pretext of its being a clear and distinct intellection. (Leibniz, 1670)

Physics Theories: Vortex Theory

Vortex Theory is correct that Motion is the cause of Time (Time is the Human Representation that everything (matter) is in Motion).

The Vortex Theory is based upon the hypothesis that time does not exist as a fundamental principle of the universe, but instead, only exists as a phenomenon created by motion, a “shadow” of motion.
The implications of this single philosophical idea possess disastrous consequences for all of 20th Century science. Every belief based upon the idea of time is at jeopardy. Especially Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (Relativity is based upon the existence of a fourth dimension called “SPACE-TIME!”). It was realized that even Newton’s laws needed to be looked at again.
Although both Einstein and Newton were giants in the world of science, their reasoning processes were both based upon time. They both believed in time. Even though Newton believed time was linear [the same everywhere in the universe], and Einstein believed it was relative, the result was the same – they both believed time was a real and fundamental principle of the universe. Because of this fact, they incorporated it into their visions of how the universe was constructed.

But if time does not exist as a fundamental principle of the universe, then Einstein’s fourth dimension of space-time does not contain any “Time” characteristics. Hence, it can no longer be used as an explanation for the length shrinkage and time dilation effects revealed by Michelson and Morley’s famous experiment.
To correct this error, the true nature of time must first be discovered. Then because time was used to explain how matter, space, energy, and the forces of nature are constructed – we have to start all over again. But this “time”, using the correct nature of time, we can rediscover how matter, space, energy, and the forces of nature are really constructed. So how do we do it?

When time is eliminated as a cause for these length shrinkage and time dilation effects, the only thing left to explain what is happening is the increased velocity of matter itself as it moves through space. Consequently, there must exist an intrinsic relationship between matter, space, and velocity whose interactions create a mechanical explanation for the results of the Michelson Morley experiment.

Definition of Vortex Theory

Vortex theory, advanced by Thomson (Lord Kelvin) on the basis of investigation by Helmholtz, that the atoms are vortically moving ring-shaped masses (or masses of other forms having a similar internal motion) of a homogeneous, incompressible, frictionless fluid. Various properties of such atoms (vortex atoms) can be mathematically deduced.

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
(Mohandas Gandhi)

Albert Einstein"When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. ... Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high. ...
The free, unhampered exchange of ideas and scientific conclusions is necessary for the sound development of science, as it is in all spheres of cultural life. ... We must not conceal from ourselves that no improvement in the present depressing situation is possible without a severe struggle; for the handful of those who are really determined to do something is minute in comparison with the mass of the lukewarm and the misguided. ...
Humanity is going to need a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive!" (Albert Einstein)

Biography: Geoffrey Haselhurst, Philosopher of Science, Theoretical Physics, Metaphysics, Evolution. Our world is in great trouble due to human behaviour founded on myths and customs that are causing the destruction of Nature and climate change. We can now deduce the most simple science theory of reality - the wave structure of matter in space. By understanding how we and everything around us are interconnected in Space we can then deduce solutions to the fundamental problems of human knowledge in physics, philosophy, metaphysics, theology, education, health, evolution and ecology, politics and society.

This is the profound new way of thinking that Einstein realised, that we exist as spatially extended structures of the universe - the discrete and separate body an illusion. This simply confirms the intuitions of the ancient philosophers and mystics.

Given the current censorship in physics / philosophy of science journals (based on the standard model of particle physics / big bang cosmology) the internet is the best hope for getting new knowledge known to the world. But that depends on you, the people who care about science and society, realise the importance of truth and reality.
