'This wave structure of matter appears certainly correct because the properties of the waves not only duplicate 'solid particles' but also predict the natural laws as they are experimentally observed. Thus logic predicts reality. In addition, the origin of other mysterious phenomena are found, such as the spin of the electron and the Pauli Principle which dictates the Atomic Table and the structure of biological molecules.'

Major Work

Wolff has found the structure of the electron consisting of two spherical quantum waves, one moving radially outward and another moving radially inward. The center of the waves is the nominal location of the electron 'particle'. These waves extend to infinity, like charge force. All 'particle' waves mix and contribute to each other, thus all matter of the universe is interrelated by this intimate connection between the fundamental 'particles' and the universe. The natural laws are a direct consequence of this Wave Structure of Matter (WSM), thus WSM underlies all of science.

Three Principles underlie the WSM

Principle I. Wave Equation Determines the behavior of Quantum Waves in Space.

Principle II. mass-energy density Principle. Generalization of Mach's Principle - determines the density of the quantum wave medium.

Principle III. Minimum Amplitude Principle (MAP). The sum of Wave Amplitudes seeks a Minimum at each point in Space.

Project Narratives

Wolff's work at MIT (1963-69) on the structure of the atmosphere resulted in a $6 million contract for MIT to build apparatus that would scan the atmosphere in orbit and then compute the constituents over the entire earth. This scanning scheme and math method were the precursor to the MRI (magnetic resonance image) scheme developed five years later to scan the human body. In Singapore (1970-72) and at the Aerospace Corporation (1973-75), he did computer studies of the structure of rough surfaces of asteroids and planetary satellites seeking the cause of 'negative polarization' of reflected light - an 80 year old mystery of planetary astronomy. His results showed the cause to be multiple scattering of light and interior reflections in grains. This knowledge makes it possible to remotely measure the size of distant asteroids as well as the index of refraction of grains on distant surfaces. At the UN (1975-77) and privately (1978-present) he did the pioneering research on the Wave Structure of Matter, leading to a quantitative quantum wave structure of the electron/positron and the origin of the natural laws. He has shown how the fundamental particles, being in fact the Wave-Centers of Spherical Waves in Space, are intimately joined with the large-scale structure of the universe.


Acknowledgements to Dr Milo Wolff: Mathematical Physicist. First Formalised the Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter.Milo Wolff and his Discovery of the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM)

It is common in the history of physics and philosophy that new knowledge is found by those who have some passion / motivation to solve a particular problem that they have identified, and that most significantly, they also have TIME to read and think and slowly work out the problem (a certain isolation from the busy world, and the influence of their customs and beliefs!). This is true for the creation of this work of Metaphysics.

While this work owes its origins to the ideas of many other great thinkers from the past, it also most notably owes its existence to the pioneering work of Milo Wolff who first discovered the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) .

Thus this Metaphysics of Space and Motion has been jointly developed from the ideas of two very different people who each independently, (from radically different backgrounds) came to the same conclusions about the Wave Structure of Matter in Space, i.e.; Matter is not a particle with wave like properties, but rather Matter is a Spherical Wave Motion of Space, and the Wave-Center (Focal-Point) of the Incoming Spherical Waves creates the point like or particle effect of matter, while also explaining how the 'particle' is inter-connected to all other matter in the universe.
The Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter in Space first occurred to me in 1997, as it seemed to explain so many of the ideas expressed by Albert Einstein and Hendrik Lorentz, and gave rise to a sensible method for two bodies to gravitationally interact with one another at-a-distance in Space. A year after my discovery of the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) I found, by searching the internet, the work of Milo Wolff (a retired professor of Mathematical Physics) who discovered the same Wave Structure of Matter in 1986.

Now this was remarkable in two ways;

Firstly, we had each independently come to the same conclusion as to the Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter in Space.

Secondly, I had discovered this idea as a 38 year old non-academic 'evolutionary philosopher' who had read the work of Feynman, Lorentz and Einstein (on relativity and gravitation).

On the other hand Milo Wolff made his discovery at the age of 63, after having retired as a Professor of Physics, but nonetheless remaining curious about the foundations of the six fundamental laws of Nature that are currently used by physicists to describe how particles behave. These Laws are listed below;
Newton's Second Law of Inertia, Newton's Law of Gravitational Force, Conservation of Energy, Law of Electric Charge, Special Relativity, Quantum Theory (And for Wolff it was seeking the cause of the de Broglie Wavelength, central to Quantum Theory, that led his discovery!).
Now it must be emphasized that these laws are empirically based, i.e., they are rules developed from repeated observation (induction) but they have no unified theoretical foundation as to the cause of their behaviour. As Einstein remarks;

'The development during the present century is characterized by two theoretical systems essentially independent of each other: the theory of relatively 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.' (Einstein, 1940)

Wolff discovered that two of these laws, the de Broglie wavelength which partly founds Quantum Theory, and the relativistic mass increase of Einstein's Special Relativity, can be deduced from the one equation which describes the Doppler shift of two Spherical Standing Waves moving relative to one another. Thus Wolff was the first person (to my knowledge) to have realised and confirmed the fundamental nature of the Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter by mathematically uniting significant parts of Quantum Theory and Relativity for the first time.

And so to my great delight (and relief) I had found a mathematical physicist who shared this knowledge of the Wave Structure of Matter in Space which perfectly complemented my own ideas. This unification of our ideas, which has continued over the past five years, has resulted in this work of the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM), which demonstrates a largely complete explanation of the fundamental problems of metaphysics, physics and philosophy and consequently an explanation of the remaining laws of Nature. I know these are big claims, likely to sound a bit extreme (and thus ignorant / crackpot). But when you think about it, knowledge of reality must explain the problems of these subjects in a simple sensible way. The Wave Structure of Matter simply confirms this, so please do not think me arrogant for writing such bold things!

'This wave structure of matter appears certainly correct because the properties of the waves not only duplicate 'solid particles' but also predict the natural laws as they are experimentally observed. Thus logic predicts reality. In addition, the origin of other mysterious phenomena are found, such as the spin of the electron and the Pauli Principle which dictates the Atomic Table and the structure of biological molecules.' (Wolff, 1999)

Thus I also owe a great deal to the ideas of Milo Wolff and borrow heavily from his work, which while having further evolved due to our combined knowledge, would have been incomplete without his kind help. I am certain that these profound achievements of his will assure him a place amongst the greats in the history of physics and sincerely hope that the Metaphysics of Space and Motion will aid in his work being properly recognized within his lifetime.

Milo Wolff on the Wave Structure of Matter.http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Wolff-Wave-Structure-Matter.htm - Abstract: The structure of the electron is investigated and found closely entwined with the origin of the natural laws. The natural laws had been measured for hundreds of years but no one knew how Nature creates them. Richard Feynman wrote, speaking of the Conservation of Energy, Nature has a hidden accountant who keeps honest books of energy input and output but we don't know how she does it. The origins had been proposed earlier by Clifford and Schrodinger, who pointed out that only a Wave Structure of Matter (WSM), can explain natural laws (i.e. Wave Mechanics). Further, Einstein realised that matter was spherical and spatially extended and thus the Electron was not a point particle, but rather, a structure of space. He writes;

Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept empty space loses its meaning. ... Since the theory of general relativity implies the representation of physical reality by a continuous field, the concept of particles or material points cannot play a fundamental part, nor can the concept of motion. The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high. (Albert Einstein)

Einstein's error was to represent matter as a continuous spherical field in space-time rather than as a Spherical Wave in continuous Space which causes the spherical force field effects (as we shall shortly explain).

Using the WSM a quantitative origin has been found based on the wave structure of the electron. It is shown that Space (the quantum wave medium) is a single entity underlying electron structure and the laws. Three Principles are found describing the wave medium, enabling calculation of particles and the laws. The predictive power of the WSM is shown by deriving the previously unknown physical origin of electron spin and making experimental predictions which solve the paradoxes of the famous EPR experiment. The WSM has important implications for research, industry, and our human role in the universe.

Milo Wolff explaining the Einstein Podolsky Rosen (EPR) experiment with the Wave Structure of Matter.http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Wolff-Einstein-EPR-Experiment.htm - Abstract: In l935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) put forward a gedanken (thought) experiment whose outcome they thought was certain to show that there existed natural phenomena that quantum theory could not account for. The experiment was based on the concept that two events cannot influence each other if the distance between them is greater than the distance light could travel in the time available. In other words, only local events inside the light sphere can influence one another.

Their experimental concept was later used by John Bell (1964) to frame a theorem which showed that either the statistical predictions of quantum theory or the Principle of Local Events is incorrect. It did not say which one was false but only that both cannot be true, although it was clear that Einstein expected The Principle to be affirmed.

When later experiments (Clauser & Freedman 1972; Aspect, Dalibard, and Roger, 1982; and others) confirmed that quantum theory was correct, the conclusion was startling. The Principle of Local Events failed, forcing us to recognize that the world is not the way it appears. What then is the real nature of our world?

The important impact of Bell's Theorem and the experiments is that they clearly thrust a formerly only philosophical dilemma of quantum theory into the real world. They show that post-modern physics’ ideas about the world are somehow profoundly deficient. No one understood these results and only scant scientific attention has been paid to them. With the recent discoveries on the Wave Structure of Matter we can now understand the cause of these apparently 'spooky' actions at a distance.

Milo Wolff explaining Richard Feynman's Quantum Electrodynamics.http://www.spaceandmotion.com/Wolff-Feynman-QED.htm - Abstract: Lack of knowledge of energy transfer between particles is a major obstacle in understanding physics, matter, and the Universe. In 1945 Wheeler and Feynman sought the mechanism of energy transfer by calculating e-m radiation from an accelerated electron. The electron generated outward and inward waves and evoked a response of the universe from absorber charges. This paper compares Wheeler and Feynman’s work with a rigorous solution using the scalar wave equation that finds a quantum-wave electron structure based upon two fundamental principles of Nature. This is equivalent to replacing the material point electron with a spherical quantum-wave electron, a new structure in main-stream thinking but fulfilling a proposal by Schrodinger (Quantum Wave Mechanics). Surprisingly, all the natural laws are found embedded in the wave structure of the electron – as envisioned by Schrodinger.

Milo Wolff Digital Video Interview (Windows Media, 1,100K). 'I was curious! ... ' - On his lifelong (slightly obsessive!) motivation to find the cause of the de Broglie wavelength of Quantum Theory / Wave Mechanics. His discovery (in 1986) that a Spherical Wave Structure of Matter deduced Doppler shifts (due to relative motion of the Spherical In and Out-Waves and the Wave-Center) that correctly corresponded to the de Broglie Wavelength of matter. Of even more significance is the fact that within these same simple wave equations were the correct terms for the Frequency-Mass-Energy increases with Motion as deduced by Einstein' Special Relativity. Thus for the first time finding a fundamental theoretical and mathematical unification of these two famous theories. (REAL).

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

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.

It is easy to help - just click on the social network sites (below) or grab a nice image / quote you like and add it to your favourite blog, wiki or forum.
