## Misner/Wheeler correct about Einstein's Unified Field Theory being successful

In 1957, Charles Misner and John Wheeler, in the “Annals of Physics”, claimed Albert Einstein’s latest equations demonstrated the unified field theory. It has been argued that the gravitational fields, if known everywhere but only for a limited time, do not contain enough information about their electromagnetism to allow the future to be determined, so Einstein's unified theory fails. Physicists also argue that a unified "theory of everything" must now include not just gravity and electromagnetism, but also the weak and strong nuclear forces plus dark matter and dark energy. This article claims Misner and Wheeler were correct, and addresses all modern objections.

they said Einstein was successful in proving his Unified Field Theory. Einstein

successfully proved the Unified Field Theory, combining gravitational and

electromagnetic equations. Despite what modern science mistakenly thinks, this

means everything (electromagnetism, time, space, matter, dark matter, dark

energy and the nuclear forces within atoms) has no separate existence from

gravitation.

In the 19th century, Scottish mathematician and physicist James Clerk Maxwell unified electricity and magnetism into electromagnetism. Albert Einstein's

equations say that in a universe possessing only gravitation and

electromagnetism, the gravitational fields carry enough information about

electromagnetism to allow the equations of Maxwell to be restated in terms of

these gravitational fields. This was discovered by the mathematical physicist

George Yuri Rainich (1886 -1968).

England’s Professor Penrose has argued that the gravitational fields, if known

everywhere but only for a limited time, do not contain enough information about

their electromagnetism to allow the future to be determined, so Einstein's unified

theory fails. But I have faith in Einstein. So I used an approach to understanding

unification which does not rely on mathematics alone but largely depends on

visualization combining subjects like physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics

and computer science. This makes it clear that all time is unified with the

gravitational and electromagnetic fields - meaning the gravitational fields are not

known for only a limited time, they do contain enough information, and Einstein

succeeded!

Of course, this was merely my own approach. Einstein had one too, and it’s well

exemplified by the quote he made at the funeral of his engineer friend Michele

Angelo Besso (1873 – 1955): "Now Besso has departed from this strange world a

little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics,

know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion".

Physicists also argue that a unified "theory of everything" must now include not

just gravity and electromagnetism, but also the weak and strong nuclear forces

plus dark matter and dark energy. Although the nuclear forces weren’t well

understood in Einstein’s day, I believe Einstein understood them better than any

other scientist (both then, and in the nearly 60 years since his death) and was

correct not to worry about including them in a unified theory. The title of one of

his papers "Do Gravitational Fields play an Important Role in the Constitution of

the Elementary Particles?" ( a 1919 paper for the Prussian Academy of Sciences) suggests that Einstein’s understanding of the nuclear forces may have been that they have no existence independently of gravitation.

Taking a supportive role to Dr. Einstein once again; I similarly concluded that

matter, antimatter and every form of energy (as well as the strong and weak

forces) have no existence independently of gravitation and that gravity, being the

warping of space-time, is the unifying foundation of all things. There’s no need to

go into detail about my conclusions since they’re merely one individual’s

approach to revealing what the Master of Science began discerning nearly a

century ago. When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one

sentence, Einstein said: time and space and gravitation have no separate

existence from matter.

How is the gravity made? I believe it’s made by electronics' binary digits in a 5th dimension. I know that sounds like science fiction, but it’s using computer science's binary digits to combine General Relativity (Einstein’s theory of gravity and spacetime) with quantum mechanics (the subatomic world of elementary particles and forces) and also with an extra dimension proposed by modern physics’ string theory. This takes the reader full circle in her or his exploration of nonlinear dynamics - and she or he will see that electromagnetism, though a modification of gravitation, is the source of gravitation too. Dark matter and dark

energy are also explained in terms of gravitation, time’s nonlinearity and binary digits.
