The Theories of Space Density Relativity and Higgs Field Occupancy:

Space Density Relativity & Higgs Field Occupancy (PDF)

As explained by the document titled The Theories of Space Density Relativity and Higgs Field Occupancy, the combination of a new understanding of the properties of spacetime (Space Density Relativity) and a new understanding of the quantum properties of sub-atomic particles (Higgs Field Occupancy) result in explanation for the actions of gravity on the quantum scale. As a result of these minor modifications of the understandings of both general relativity and quantum mechanics, the new understanding produced by the unification of these two theories greatly reduces the number of independent hypotheses and vastly simplifies the theoretical structure from which gravity is derived. Thus, these two theories combine to give an unprecedented fundamental understanding of gravitation.

Space Density Relativity explains that the “curvature” of spacetime described by Albert Einstein in his General Theory of Relativity is actually a variation in the relative density of spacetime. Higgs Field Occupancy describes that sub-atomic particles have wavefunctions which occupy a three-dimensional region of spacetime, rather than being “point particles” of zero size. (In particular, this wavefunction characteristic described by Higgs Field Occupancy applies to particles having rest mass—and actually explains the derivation of rest mass in the process.) It is explained that the actions of gravitation are the simple result of the influence on this hitherto misunderstood quality of quantum particles by the hitherto not fully understood structure of spacetime. Thus, the theories of Space Density Relativity and Higgs Field Occupancy combine to properly incorporate quantum mechanics and general relativity, as expected for the unifying theory of quantum gravity.

While it is understood that the presentation of these theories is not in the traditional form of the submission of an article to a peer-reviewed journal in the field, it would not have been possible for this author to publish in a scientific journal due to lack of a certificate or degree of completion in the field of physics. And admittedly, the lay presentation of these theories is not what would be expected for the theory of quantum gravity to most professional physicists. For one thing, more equations would be expected. However, as is discovered through these theories, the problem of understanding quantum gravity has not been a problem of lacking equations. Much to the contrary, it has been a problem of not fully understanding the fundamental properties of spacetime and quantum particles

It is recommended that the interested reader absorb this rudimentary document’s thought experiments as a roadmap to an understanding of how gravity actually works on the quantum scale, as opposed to first searching for an equation for quantum gravity and then trying to get an understanding of it conceptually afterward. That latter method of seeking answers toward understanding gravity through equations, after all, is what has been the problem with previous attempts to figuring out quantum gravity while overlooking the problems of the muddled presumptions of previous theories that were assumed final and clear-cut. Nonetheless, there is an equation in the form of a word formula provided toward the end of the document which should provide what is needed to develop the numerical equations quantum physics experts have desired.

Applications of Space Density Relativity

Applications of Space Density Relativity (PDF)

The accompanying document, titled Applications of Space Density Relativity, explains the implications of Space Density Relativity to the modern conundrums in cosmology which have occurred primarily due to the lack of understanding of the fundamental density-variable nature of spacetime and how it causes the actions of gravity. Many inconsistencies are resolved when the fact that spacetime varies in relative compaction is applied to the observational evidence which has been interpreted to be anomalous by the current understanding of physics.

For example, the previously anomalous gravitational singularities in black holes are explained as points of maximal spacetime density. Additionally, the observed phenomena that have been attributed to “dark matter” are resolved as normal expectations by the understanding of gravitation and the structure of spacetime provided by Space Density Relativity. Furthermore, the observational evidence that has been interpreted to indicate that the expansion of the universe has begun to accelerate, which has been attributed to “dark energy”, is explained as a mere observational effect due to spacetime having been relatively denser in the distant past when light from extremely distant supernovae was emitted. With the false accelerating expansion issue cleared up, the understanding of spaced density relativity provides for a logical return to the more reasonable understanding that was held by Einstein in which the universe is understood to be cyclical.

All of this is explained on a conceptual basis, though again word formulations are provided which should give basis for the numerical equations which will need to be derived by physicists to check the validity of the principle explanations given for the described phenomena through calculations.
