Larson does say that some facts have much more significant consequences than others.These he calls
The existence of distributed scalar motion is such a fact.
When the ―disregarded fact‖ that every fundamental force must originate from a
fundamental motion is considered, distributed scalar motion is found to explain thefundamental forces. It is found to explain electric charge and mass (inertial andgravitational).In Chapter 2 he mentions that distributed scalar motions can have up to three dimensions,only one of which can be seen at any time from a local reference frame. That one is seenin three dimensions locally. These concepts do not appear to be deduceable from what
Unfortunately, it gives the reader the feeling that Larson is inventing ―bizarre devices‖
-for his own theory - just like the ones he says others have invented to get Relativitytheory to work: These concepts concerning distributed scalar motion are introduced in hisprevious books; and through the use of these multidimensional distributed scalar motions,Larson is able to unify electricity, magnetism, and gravity. If the motion is onedimensional, it is electric motion; two dimensional, it is magnetic; and three dimensional,gravitational.Velikovskians will find his discussions of gravity interesting. Larson makes no mention
of Velikovsky‘s theory that gravitation is an electromagnetic phenomenon. To
Velikovsky there is no need for gravity to act instantaneously or to be unique. Larson, onthe other hand, claims that it is a unique force derivable directly from motion, and that it
does act instantaneously (a ―neglected fact‖). But Larson‘s point of view may be true
only if gravitation is indeed the phenomenon being observed. Should local manifestationsthat are called gravitation prove to be electromagnetic phenomena, it may mean that
Larson‘s concept of gravitation needs to be reassessed.
Larson also tackles the idea of an absolute speed limit. He is willing to say that theabsolute limit of the speed of light is erroneous. His limiting value of the total scalarspeed of an object is 3c,not c.Time is not immune to new interpretation either. In the Reciprocal System, time can have
three independent dimensions (an ―unrecognized fact‖). And space
phenomena are the results of Larson‘s postulation that space
and time have meaning only
in the motion equation. There is motion and direction in time, but not ―time travel‖.
The reader should be prepared for some mind-wrenching mental gymnastics that involvethe fundamental aspects of Newtonian mechanics and its prodigy. The book is not easy toread. But doing so gives a healthy appreciation of the fundamental doubts many of thecelestial minds of physics have toward mechanics, principally, and electromagnetics to amuch lesser degree. Larson has included a good many sentences on the flaws of Relativity. He demonstrates that the elevation of the theory of Relativity above physicalfacts has produced the dangerous situation of discrediting the value of objective truth. Hisname can be added to the long list of scientists and mathematicians who have been
pointing out again and again what is wrong with Einstein‘s Theory of Relativity, yet it
seems to fall on deaf ears.
