Relativity and Cosmology


The case for Einstein’s Vision and a New Paradigm of Relativity

Authors: Robert Spoljaric

Einstein’s ultimate vision of physics was to extend general relativity by incorporating electromagnetism and unifying the large-scale world where gravity dominates with the subatomic realm of quantum physics. But he failed to find a version that would explain quantum phenomena that involved neither statistics nor measurements. In this paper we will show he was right by generalising the energy of a photon using the equations of relativistic mechanics to render relativistic dynamics consistent with the de Broglie relations, which, in principle, gives us a coherent account of individual phenomena as a ‘thing-in-itself’. Further, when we carry this line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion we realise that the introduction of the quantum was a necessary step in the evolution of physics. Einstein should have taken this approach to realise his vision of physics, which could have preceded the advent of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics in 1925. The reason Einstein missed this approach is due to the fact that he needed to go beyond de Broglie’s wave-particle duality for both light and matter by using the concept of relativistic mass. The physics used in this article has already been discussed in [1] and [2].
