Progress of Metaphysics

3 Transition Phase of Metaphysics,  or only changes by Einstein

Einstein published 5 papers in 1905, and a 6th in 1916.

Einstein also published a book about Relativity in 1920.

I wrote several publications of different sizes about Einstein, his books, papers, and their impacts.

It is difficult to respond to 6 diverse papers covering all the important topics, in one coherent response.

You can select which topic you wish to read.

First, I wrote a  web-book describing the changes from Einstein's papers and their impact.

Second,  I wrote a web-book about Einstein's 1920 book on Relativity.

Third, I wrote a web-book about  the mass-energy equation.

Fourth, I wrote a web-book about the photoelectric effect paper.

Each of the 4 has a section.

3.1  Summary of Einstein's Impacts on Physics

Einstein's Mistakes With Forces and Light

3.2 Einstein's 1920 book on Relativity.

Review of Einstein's Book on Relativity

3.3 Review of E=mc^2

False Equivalence of Mass and Energy

3.4 Einstein's Photoelectric Photon Problems

It is unclear to me how much of this content is by Einstein or Planck.

In 1900, Planck might have published the Planck equation, to calculat energy from frequency and Planck's constant. This was 5 years before Einstein's paper which earned the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics.

The acceptance of Einstein's papers resulted in major distortions of metaphysics.

Here are Einstein's impacts on metaphysics, or how we view reality.

Each item is his denial of reality, but instead, there is reality.

a) light consists of discrete packets of energy, but instead either a rainbow or a spectrum is a continuum of colors, not dots.

b) fundamental forces propagate at the velocity of light, but instead they are instantaneous, not slow.

c) space has an invisible structure, a space-time continuum, but instead space is just space, not a participant in any physical processes.

A non-existent big bang event would create this impossible, invisible structure.

d) motion of matter  can be affected by the space-time continuum, or what is called curved space, but instead only forces can affect motion, as described by classical mechanics.

e) only a gravitational field can affect motion as defined by space-time crvature, but instead

1) Newton's force of gravity has 2 participants and both are affected by the mutual force,

2) the universe also has the instantaneous forces of electromagnetism.

f)  mass had a velocity limit at c, but instead conservation of energy applies, as described by classical mechanics.

These ideas from Einstein conflict with observational evidence.

Metaphysics is tasked with explaining the universe that we observe.

Einstein proposes there are hidden behaviors present which we cannot observe or measure.

Modern metaphysics accepted Einstein and classical physics was overturned.

As a result, blatant mistakes like dark matter and dark energy were accepted.

Both dark things do not exist. However the universe has hidden magnetic fields present around electric currents. Though hidden to tthe eye, these fields can be measured with devices.

Dark matter is the excuse when magnetic fields are causing the observed behaviors, but electromagnetism is ignored.

As a result of accepting Einstein, a black hole was accepted.

A black hole is the anomaly when the special observer encounters a strong gravitational field. Their path cannot curve around the field but curves to the center of the field, ahich is the center of the mass.

In classical mechanics this is a collision.

In relativity, the mass disappears into the point in the path, at the center of the gravitational field. The gravitational field persists though the mass disappeared into a point in space-time geometry.

A black hole is nonsense.

However. a black hole is important in a failed cosmology which ignores electromagnetism.

There are known sources of X-ray radiation, but having no apparent size.

X-rays are at the very short wavelength end of synchrotron radiation, which results from the interaction of an electric current and a magnetic field.  Both of these phenomena will not be visible.

Plasma physicists have defined a plasmoid and a Z-pinch. Both behaviors of electromagnetism can emit X-rays in the form of synchrotron radiation.

When these behaviors are ignored, then an impossible black hole and an impossible accretion disk can be accepted by a cosmology which accepts deviations beyond classical physics.

3.5 Brownian Motion

I will mention Brownian motion at the end of this section because it is somewhat trivial, but should be mentioned for completeness.

In 1905, Einstein published another paper which is not mentioned elsewhere in this overview of metaphysics.

He published a paper on Brownian motion. Brown was a botanist.

Here is someone suggesting in 2006, that Einstein really did not contribute anything substantial to the work done by the botanist Robert Brown, for whom this behavior is named.

Einstein's invention of Brownian motion

3.6 Progress of Metaphysics during this transition phase

The paper on Brownian motion remains valid. If Brown did not publish his work by another method, then this must be the paper to use.

The other 5 papers by Einstein, which are about relativity and the photoelectric effect should be ignored, and must be ignored to prevent mistakes in metaphysics.
