Discovery of Three New Laws for the Physics of the Universe b&w By James Carter
Paperback: $10.84
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book describes the new Circlon Synchronicity philosophy that uses the mechanics of Newton’s F=ma for the measurement of energy and matter within a universe of absolute mass, space, time... More > and gravity. The discovery that the electron’s mass has been decreasing since the beginning of time reveals the creation of matter in our evolutionary past. This creation story combines the Big Bang theory’s measurements with the evolving electrodynamics of circlon shaped electrons, protons and photons. This story begins with red shifted Hubble galaxies and the so called Dark Energy supernovas. Next, the photons of the 2.7˚K Cosmic Blackbody Radiation are created by 2256 decaying neutrons at the end of a stable neutron cloud era. A long time prior to this, all of our electrons and protons were bifurcated from a single anti-Hydrogen atom. This book is illustrated with many circlon models, nuclear structures, charts and equations that depict circlon electrodynamics and the evolution of the universe.< Less
