This year’s winner of the Breakthrough Junior Challenge is Ryan Chester who presented an excellent video explaining Einstein’s theory of relativity. Congratulations to young Mr. Chester and the organizers of this contest who ask “students around the world to submit their thoughts on complicated matters in math and science”. Through the minds of young people it may be possible for some insight to shine through, insights that have long been driven out of older people as they went through their indoctrinating education process.

It seems that the purpose of this contest is to stimulate young minds into entering the fields of math and science and to that end, this contest looks to be very successful. However if the intention of this contest is to actually find a breakthrough – I do not think that is possible. Not because young people do not have the creative thoughts required for a breakthrough but because the people who are the judges would rule out anything not lock-step with their indoctrinated education.

In that light, there is something very telling about this award winning presentation…

Einstein originally based his theory on four postulates – not two, as stated in this video (some history is being re-written here).

Einstein’s first two postulates (and those included in the video) were:

- All reference frames are equal
- The speed of light is constant in all reference frames

But Einstein also had two other postulates which were left out of this presentation:

- Spacetime is homogeneous
- Spacetime is isotropic

These postulates were left out for a reason, Ryan Chester was already indoctrinated to the notion that spacetime is made of nothing. Einstein never believed that spacetime was made of nothing.

Einstein: Ether and Relativity

But even more interesting is that physicists have an understanding that spacetime seethes and bubbles with energy where virtual particles come in and out of existence. So on one hand physicists teach that spacetime is made of nothing and that light does not require a medium to propagate (which goes against the mathematics of all other waves) and on the other hand physicists teach that spacetime somehow contains energy which is required to support the theory of quantum mechanics.

It should be obvious to everyone that this represents a major contradiction in physics at its most basic level of understanding. Physicists are trying to provide a solution by finding particles “in” spacetime that can account for this underlying energy. Gordon’s theory of everything provides a better solution where spacetime is built using entities that are “of” spacetime and which are associated with the energy of spacetime.

The entities that form spacetime are “of” spacetime; whereas what we know as particles, exist “in” spacetime. The placement and alignment of the spacetime entities determine the amount of energy that exists in that region of spacetime. When particles existing “in” spacetime relatively move in the energy of spacetime, there is a “relative” change in the underlying spacetime energy — in other words the amount of the spacetime energy relatively changes with respect to the particle as the particle moves through it. However the particle does not have any way to determine that this relative change in spacetime energy has taken place because the equation that describes the energy in spacetime is (E0=m0c^0). In this equation the speed of light is always determined as 1 (c^0) by any particle no matter what the energy of its underlying spacetime. This is the reason why all reference frames “appear” to be equal. It seems that an important insight with regards to this postulate has already been by-passed by Ryan Chester even at this early stage of his physics education.

Gordon’s theory of everything changes the understanding of the postulates used to derive the theories of relativity and quantum mechanics. When these major theories are rederived using the Gordon model, they can finally be united triggering a revolution in the entire field of physics and cosmology.
