When I was in upper higher school and college, I wonder why have to agree with Albert Einstein about the imperfection of the Newtons's gravitational law, the relativity of space-time quantum told us throw away the common sense that we build our of wave theory on. Why can't we accept the existence a fine universal medium, those ultra-fine particles called "aether" that permeate space we know as the universe in which the planets and stars travel in.
The fact shows that scientist at the time could not measure the aether, can only means that they are working of a concept of size in a scale we could not measure, but the idea of aether should not be thrown out of consideration. The concept of aether seem to give us a tool to explant the strange phenomenons we observed in quantum mechanic. Why can not we explain that individual mass, seems to exist in quantized digital units, such as atomic mass, can be described as a kind of wave function, especially when can not count and a measure atom particles except by means of statistically measurement.
Particles can be described as a square wave, or a pulse wave function of energy carried by the medium aether, then it would not be difficult to explain the wave phenomena of particles in tight area, such as the interference pattern of light going through a two split opening. . Wave travelling in the same medium, in synchronized wave pattern do produce interference pattern, even though individual water molecule are each form a particle of water.
There come the Higg's theory, that gravitation exist when matter interact with these so called Higgs boson to slow down the movement, what we try to explain known as inertia of matter today.
In college when people talk about the effect of Eistein's theories of special relativity and general relativity, how they affect the space-time continuum that draw my interest more.
Let us think about how we intepret time and many other scientific concept in our daily life. Aren't we all rely on our daily logic and understanding, in spite all the mathematical work scientist try to explain behind them. That is to say we have some concept of what the universe would be and try to fit in with the math to support it. The question is how much we know about the real universe, and how we can observe.
(energy is equal to mass times the square of the speed of light).
It is easy to understand the equation by comparing the change of mass to the sum of all energy radiated from a radioactive substance.
If mass is energy, and the mass equation can be break up into wave equation form, and the wave energy is in geometric proportion to the mass unit, would it not be supprising to think that energy is a distribution of energy carried by the even smaller mass (smaller than the basic atomic particles we know of) through out space. When big lump of mass has been broken up into much smaller mass, just like sound shock wave have broken into vibration of air particles, like huge giantic water wave crest crashed on shore and broken into splashing and rebouncing backward water waves of many pitches, frequencies.
Those many waves functions can be difficult to interpretate and proof accurate in a universe infinitely smaller than ours.
What seem to be appearant is that mass can be a impluse or square wave in mathmetic, group together either as a wave form in a field of much smaller wave package in a sea of mediun like what call as Higgs boson today. Just like wave in a sea of water, mass is a lump of wave energe in the sea of Higgs boson.
If mass can represented by the wave function of energy carried by the expanding medium particles, take for grant the Higg's boson, what about the definition of distance, length, and time.
When mass and distance (the 3 dimensional space concept) can be varied, so does what we call time (a relative time). What we call the space time continuum is different from the Newtonian concept.
Before the invention of supersonic plane, people thought that the speed of planes can not exceed the speed of sound. However, as we know it today, the speed of sound can be broken. The speed of sound was treated as constant in a given medium, and wouldn't that look like the speed of light would lool like it is a constant in a sea of medium of particles in much small geometrical proportion size like a sea of the so called Higgs Boson that extend to the vast space around and beyond our gallarcy (Milkway). In a space that large of particles so small how would the scientist device a measurment for the difference in the speed of light when an object is traveling in one direction compare to the speed of light in the other direction.
in Todays theory, given the speed of light is accepted as a constant. What we know as distance, (the space in its 3 D concept) is measured by the time that take for light to travel. If the the speed of light is not constant in the galaxy wide medium that has different reactional density, (just like the speed of light, electrical magnetic wave, and sound wave, varies in medium of different character) space(distance) and time would various in different part of space [see note ( I )].
It is known the electro-magnetic wave would travel more slowly in more conductive medium like metal (a conductor) than in semi-conductor and non-conductor like vacum and air. It would not be suprising to see that the time and space would look like slow down and shrinked in a speedy satellite where the assumed Higg Boson would be compacted not just in the direction of traveling mass.
Then question would raise about the other 3 known forces of the universe.
The most difficult concept to deal with in modern physic is the gravitation force. This do not seem to be a problem in the Higg's Boson concept. Mass is simply those matter that react with the Higg's Boson. Those massless particle are not reactive with the Higg;s Boson. Photon look massless, not attaracted by gravity and spinding mass, but its digital packaged behave like a mass, but also react in statistical wave function, as if one photo react to another distant photon in the medium as in water wave pass through a double slit experiment.
Also light do get bent by heavy object like the sun, when the medium is more dense, i.e. in area near the sun.
If you accept the existence of a medium in space and inner space between atoms, it is not difficult to understand the theory of quantum machanic that electronic and jump from one state to another as in the tunneling effect.
