On One Infinite Eternal Substance, Space, and its Properties as a Wave-Medium for Spherical Standing Waves which form Matter

(Aristotle, 340BC) Metaphysics is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. (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.

Leibniz  - Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. (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.

Bradley. On Metaphysics. (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.

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 realizing 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).


Main Metaphysics Pages (most important essays)

Metaphysics - Main page. Definition of metaphysics, short essay / summary and collection of metaphysical quotes. On the metaphysics of one substance, space, existing with the properties of a wave medium, for spherical standing waves that form matter. Uniting space, time, matter and motion (the dynamic unity of reality).

Metaphysics: Most Simple Scientific Theory of Reality - What is the most Simple Science Theory for describing Reality? The most simple theory must be founded on One thing. Given that there are many minds and material things, but they are all experienced in one common space, we can deduce that space is the most simple foundation. The error is to then add the concepts of Time, Matter and Forces to Space, rather than considering the Properties of Space as a Wave Medium for Spherical Standing Waves which cause Matter, Time and Forces.

Metaphysics: Principles Reality - On Metaphysics, Reality, Logical Truths / Principles of Physics, and Empirical Truths and the Mind's Representation of our Senses. Important Quotes on Metaphysics from Aristotle, Gottfried Leibniz, David Hume, Immanuel Kant and Albert Einstein.

Metaphysics: Problem of One and the Many - By describing Reality as One thing existing (Space with Properties of a Wave Medium for Spherical Standing Waves that form Many things / Matter) we finally solve this most profound problem of Metaphysics. Uniting the One and the Many, Infinite and the Finite, Eternal and the Temporal, Absolute and Relative, Continuous and Discrete, Simple and Complex, Matter and Universe.

Skepticism & Skeptics - On truth and certainty - scientific minds are skeptical and open. How we can be certain we know the truth about reality.

Metaphysics by Subject / Author (A - Z)

Aristotle: Metaphysics - Explaining Aristotle's Metaphysics of One Substance & its Properties as the necessary foundation for all human knowledge. Uniting Space, Time, Matter and Motion.

Dynamic Unity of Reality - Discussion of metaphysics quotes from famous philosophers and scientists (ancient and modern) on the Dynamic Unity of Reality. The Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) confirms this foundation - One substance (Space) exists with properties of a wave medium.

Einstein, Albert: Principles in Physics - Short summary and quotes from Albert Einstein on metaphysics and the principles of physics and reality.

Einstein, Albert: Field Theory of Matter - Simplifying the metaphysical foundations of Albert Einstein's theory of Relativity. From Einstein's failed attempt at a Unified Field theory of Matter (continuous spherical fields in space-time) to the Wave Structure of Matter (spherical waves in continuous space).

God - God as One Infinite, Eternal Substance. Discussion of Quotes from Philosophers and Theologians on God.

Hume, David: Necessary Connection - By describing reality in terms of One Thing, Space existing as a Wave Medium, we solve David Hume's Problem of Causation and Necessary Connection by explaining the interconnection of Matter in Space.

Kant, Immanuel: Metaphysics - From Kantian Idealism to Realism of Space & the Wave Structure of Matter. Metaphysics of Space and Motion (not Time) as Synthetic a priori Foundations for Human Knowledge and Reason.

Leibniz, Gottfried - The Spherical Standing Wave Structure of Matter explains Gottfried Leibniz's Monadology where 'each created Monad represents the whole Universe'. Uniting Matter & Universe as One Interconnected Whole.

Ockham's Razor - The most Simple Theory that explains the most things is the better Scientific Theory. Thus the logical extension of Ockham's (Occam's) Razor it that the Best Scientific Theory must be founded on One thing that explains Necessary Connection of Many things.

Philosophy & Metaphysics - Uniting Metaphysics and Philosophy by Solving Hume's Problem of Causation, Kant's Critical Idealism, Popper's Problem of Induction. On Thomas Kuhn's Paradigm and Scientific Revolutions.

Metaphysics: Space and Motion - From the Metaphysics of Space and Time (Matter as Particles generating Spherical Forces in Space-Time) to the Metaphysics of Space and Motion (Matter as Spherical Waves in Space). Uniting the Metaphysics of Aristotle, Leibniz, Spinoza, Hume and Kant.

Spinoza, Benedictus - Discussion on the Metaphysics of Benedictus de Spinoza. On One Infinite Substance (God, Nature, Space) and the interconnected Motion of Matter.

Newton, Sir Isaac - The Metaphysics of Space and the Wave Structure of Matter unites Sir Isaac Newton's Absolute Space and his Particle conception of matter.

Wave Structure of Matter Terminology - A brief explanation of the main terms used in the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (and how they relate to Modern Physics).

Metaphysics Physics Philosophy Theology - This is our old Index page which provides a nice summary of the Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter. Discussion of Quotations on Philosophy (Truth, Reality), Physics (Wave Structure of Matter), Metaphysics (Space and Motion), Theology (God, Religion, Morality).

"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.

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. We are listed as one of the top philosophy sites on the Internet (600,000 page views / week) and have a wonderful collection of knowledge from the greatest minds in human history, so people will appreciate your contributions.
