Richard Feynman, once stated: "... the more you see how strangely nature behaves, the harder it is to make a model that explains how even the simplest phenomenon actually works. So theoretical... More > physics has given up on that." Don Wortzman hasn't. His Theory validates the twelve-dimensional helical construct explaining the strange phenomena that have stymied physicists for so long. It offers an understanding of how the universe actually works. The equivalence of the masses of gravity and inertia, a 300-year mystery, is solved. The big bang theory is described, without resorting to Inflation Theory. Additionally, particle spin, anti-matter, duality, quantum entanglement, non-simultaneity, and many other phenomena are simply explained. Nevertheless, from the inside, where we reside, the entire three-dimensional universe is on the surface of a four-dimensional sphere expanding outwardly at the speed of light. Consequently, matter is not energy, but is mass in motion at lightspeed.< Less
