    In another science forum I ran across this topic. It does make a lot of sense at least his explanation for non physicist did to me. I'd like some of the physicist in this forum to take a look at this guys work and see if they are impressed by it. It's a whole new approach that may solve some long time problems.

    Ooh! Very hard question! In real life we can understand space and time as separate objects.
    Together is amenities of theory of physics.
    Space is endless big place in which possible a motion, different positions and mutual location of objects.
    Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future.
    What do you mean under structure disturbance? Lorantz transformation?. Of course in this case electromagnetic and gravity field are mutable when they are moving close by speed of light.

    No I am not impressed by it.
    Firstly, Piotr Ogonowski is a well known crank who pops up every once in a while on various forums under the name "pogono"; we know already that he really does not have a clue about physics at all, instead he practices what could best be described as "numerology".
    Secondly, even though the paper you referenced contains a lot of maths and terminology which looks legitimate at first glance, upon closer inspection it is immediately obvious that its science content is exactly zero. It is basically just an elaborate, disjointed copy-and-paste job of mostly unrelated bits and pieces of maths, from start to finish. I give you just one example - see equation 24 :



    which, to start with, for a rank-2 tensor in (3+1) curved space-time is meaningless. The correct relations in curved space-time should have been



    and



    Anyway, he then concludes from this ( meaningless ) tensor relation that



    and



    Now, not only does this not follow from (24), but the divergence and curl operators in the form used above aren't even defined on (3+1) space-time. This bit is thus not only mathematically wrong, but also physically meaningless. And this is just one example, the "paper" is full of such things.

    The verdict - it's crank nonsense. Don't pay it any heed.

    Piotr Ogonowski is just an ignorant crank, his math (and physics) are laughable.

    Thanks for your comments, he's gone to a lot of trouble to make himself look credible and I just didn't have the math background to tell one way or the other. I don't know if you ever post in the other forum, but as good as CraigD is he also doesn't have the math background and apparently he didn't do any searching on the ID "pogono".

    this Ogonowski is spamming multiple forums with his crackpot ideas. The spamming is offensive.
