Application of the Electro-Gravi-Magnetic (EGM) Photon radiation method on a
Cosmological scale suggests “the nature of light” to be that of propagating matter; facilitating the
derivation of the present values of the Hubble constant “H0” and Cosmic Microwave Background
Radiation (CMBR) temperature “T0”. It is demonstrated that a mathematical relationship exists
between the Hubble constant and CMBR temperature such that “T0” is derived from “H0”. The
values derived are “67.0843(km/s/Mpc)” and “2.7248(K)” respectively. Consequently, utilising the
experimental value of “T0”, improved estimates are derived for the solar distance from the Galactic
centre “Ro” and total Galactic mass “MG” as being “8.1072(kpc)” and “6.3142 x1011(solar-masses)”
respectively. The EGM construct implies that the observed “accelerated expansion” of the Universe
is attributable to the determination of the Zero-Point-Field (ZPF) energy density threshold “UZPF”
being “< -2.52 x10-13(Pa)” [i.e. “< -0.252(mJ/km3)”]. Moreover, it is graphically illustrated that the
gradient of the Hubble constant in the time domain is presently positive (i.e. “dH/dt > 0”).
1 Electro-Gravi-Magnetics (EGM)

Pursuant to the synoptic results presented in [1], this manuscript sets forth modelling
propositions for community consideration, directly resulting in the derivation of critical
Cosmological information such as the present values of the Hubble constant “H0” and Cosmic-
Microwave-Background-Radiation (CMBR) temperature “T0”. The key concepts presented herein
are that: (i) Photons possess mass (i.e. a Photon is a propagating “piece of matter”) and
consequently (ii), “Dark Matter / Energy” is not required to mathematically articulate and precisely
numerically determine “H0” and “T0”. The accelerated Cosmological expansion phenomenon (i.e.
“dH/dt > 0”) is derived organically from Particle-Physics, in favourable agreement with
experimental evidence. Therefore, it is proposed that the observational suggestion for the existence
of “Dark Matter” may be explained by halos of ejected Gravitons existing as conjugate
wavefunction pairs of non-zero mass Photons. [2, 3, 4] Moreover, it is demonstrated in [5] that
“Dark Energy” is analogous to the Zero-Point-Field (ZPF) energy associated with the Casimir
Effect, acting on a Cosmological scale.
i. Quantum Vacuum (QV) is a generalised theoretical Quantum Mechanical reference to the
space-time manifold of General Relativity (GR).
ii. ZPF refers to the ground-state of the QV.
iii. Polarisable Vacuum (PV) refers to a polarised form (i.e. non-ground-state) of the ZPF / QV.
Table 1: Applied Definitions,
The primary methodology applied to resolve this dilemma and achieve the stated objectives
is termed Electro-Gravi-Magnetics (EGM). The initial premise in the development of the EGM
method is the assumption that gravity and ElectroMagnetism may be unified via Quantum
Mechanics (QM) in terms of the QV, utilising Buckingham “Π” Theory (BPT) and Dimensional
Analysis Techniques (DAT’s). In order to compare a mathematical model to a physical system, it
must possess Dynamic, Kinematic or Geometric similarity to the real-world (any or all of these if
applicable). “Dynamic similarity” relates forces, “Kinematic similarity” relates motion and
“Geometric similarity” relates shape (i.e. the topology of space-time curvature within the context of
An obvious question arising thus far is; how may Gravity be unified with ElectroMagnetism
in (at least) a convenient mathematical sense? This may be achieved as follows;
i. Assume that all matter radiates Gravitons into the QV. Let a Graviton be
defined as a coupled pair of transverse ElectroMagnetic (EM) plane waves,
propagating in the same direction, phased and orientated in such a manner that
the Electric and Magnetic fields sum to zero. The EM energy is not annihilated
by zero summation; it is conserved and may be transformed into an equivalent
representation of space-time manifold stress within General Relativity (GR).
ii. Let the mass of a Photon and Graviton be given by “mγγ ≤ 3.2 x10-45(eV)” and
“mgg = 2mγγ” respectively. [2, 3] Leading to the proposition that the minimum
gravitational lifetime of starving matter is given by “TL = h/mγγ = 2h/mgg;
where, “h = 6.6260693 x10-34(Js)”. [5]
iii. As a consequence of the definition of a Graviton applied herein, the Electric
charge on all fundamental particles (where applicable), may be usefully
neglected (i.e. rendering them electrically neutral for the purposes of the stated
objectives), without impinging upon the proposed methodology for the quasi-
unification of ElectroMagnetism and Gravity. 

ote: within the EGM construct, the Photon is considered to be a massive particle; consequently,
the Weinberg-Witten Theorem is inapplicable.
Two distinct and practical advantages exist for representing Gravitons in accordance with
the EGM construct, these are;
iv. It avoids (not dismisses) the classical “many orders of magnitude” problem
when relating Gravitational and Electrical forces.
v. A single paradigm is applicable to all matter.
EGM is an engineering approach, not a theory, it is a tool for mathematically simulating
real-world systems in order to model physical problems in GR and QM utilising standard
engineering techniques. EGM asserts that Gravity is the result of an interaction between matter and
the space-time manifold; leading to the following precepts,
vi. An object at rest polarises the QV surrounding it (see Figure 1).
vii. An object at rest is in equilibrium with the QV surrounding it (see Figure 1).
viii. The Quantum-Vacuum-Energy (QVE) [i.e. the gravitational field energy]
surrounding an object at rest is equivalent to “E = mc2”.
ix. The frequency distribution of the spectral energy density of the QV
surrounding an object at rest is cubic. The cubic form of the Spectral Energy
Density of the QV was determined mathematically in a manuscript
formulating the Quantum-Vacuum-Inertia-Hypothesis (QVIH). [8]

Figure 1: free fundamental particle with classical form factor,
The EGM method commences by mathematically representing mass as an equivalent
localised density of wavefunction energy, contained by the QV surrounding it. Properties of Fourier
harmonics are utilised to mathematically decompile the mass-energy into a spectrum of EM
frequencies. The QV is predicted and required by QM and Quantum-Electro-Dynamics (QED), both
dictating that virtual energy must exist within the fabric of space-time. The EGM construct
represents matter as a precisely defined spectrum of EM energy utilising Fourier techniques and
models its interaction with the QV as a dynamic system. Subsequently, the unique spectral
“signatures” of matter are superimposed upon the QV demonstrating that a change in Poynting
Vector “∆P” results in a gravitational effect.
All natural systems seek to find equilibrium; this implies that the energy condensed as
matter exists in a state of equilibrium within the Universe surrounding it. Consequently, EGM
asserts that mass is relativistic because it equilibrates to the ambient energy conditions of its local
environment. The methodology articulated in [4] specifies the mass-energy equilibrium point
between an object and the space-time manifold such that the metaphysical conception of
“curvature” is re-interpreted as being a local polarisation of the QV, explicable by the superposition
of EM fields. “∆P” is analogous to variations in the Refractive Index “KPV” of the space-time
manifold in an optical model of gravity.
The EGM construct models vacuum polarisation by the superposition of mass-energy and
QV spectra. A key difference distinguishing mass-energy from QVE is that the energy contained
within matter is highly localised, whereas QVE is distributed homogeneously throughout the vast
regions of free-space.
Haisch, Rueda and Puthoff (HRP) determined that the QV spectrum obeys a cubic frequency
distribution (i.e. the energy density of QV spectral modes increases to the cube of the frequency).
However, this presents a rather formidable dilemma. This type of distribution implies that the
energy density of empty space is staggering. Calculating the total energy represented by the HRP
interpretation suggests that every cubic centimetre of empty space is so packed full of energy that it
should cause the Universe to collapse in upon itself.
Because of this theoretical result, many Physicists discount the existence of the QV in cubic
frequency form, believing that something must be fundamentally wrong with its formulation,
despite the fact that it is derived utilising standard QM. However, the EGM construct does not
suffer from this ailment and emphatically rejects the assertion that an infinite quantity of energy is
contained within the vanishing volume associated with the QM derivation of the QV.
The physical justification for this emphatic rejection spawns from the derivation of the “H0”
and “T0” utilising the harmonic representation of fundamental particles. The derivation of “H0” and
“T0” within the EGM construct yields experimentally impressive results, substantially beyond the
abilities of the Standard Model (SM) of Cosmology (SMoC), without the “vanishing volume”
implications of QM; hence, the “emphatic rejection” asserted herein is substantiated. Applying
EGM to the energy dynamics of Hubble expansion spectrally, “H0” is derived by modelling the QV
spectrum of the “Primordial-Universe” (i.e. instantaneously prior to the “Big-Bang”) as a single
high-frequency wavefunction representing the energy of the entire Universe.
Instantaneously after the “Big-Bang”, the single wavefunction rapidly decomposed into a
broad spectrum of lower-frequency wavefunctions, forming localised gradients through the
condensation of mass. Summing the energy associated with all lower-frequency wavefunctions in
the present QV yields the total energy of the Universe, equalling the total energy at an instant prior
to the “Big-Bang”; hence, energy is conserved and the cubic frequency distribution of the QV
spectrum predicted by HRP is preserved.
Setting the QV spectrum temporarily aside, we shall now define and describe the energy
spectrum associated with matter; termed “the EGM spectrum”. This is a wavefunction
representation of mass-energy obeying a Fourier distribution such that the number of modes
decreases as energy density increases, implying that the energy density of free-space approaches
zero, avoiding the “infinite energy in a vanishing volume” problem. This is because each mode is
representative of the possibility of the existence of virtual Photons only, not that virtual Photons
must exist. In other words, free space can accommodate the existence of high energy Photons;
however, the probability of their existence in the absence of mass approaches zero. Similarly, the
probability of low frequency virtual Photons existing in the QV of free space approaches unity.
Consider the action of adding a point mass to an empty Universe. This action superimposes
the EGM spectrum of the point mass onto the QV spectrum of the Universe; doing so forms the PV
spectrum (i.e. a quantised representation of the gravitational field) surrounding the point mass,
inducing a mode population gradient in space-time between the point mass and the edge of the
Universe. The mode population gradient modifies the “KPV” value of the vacuum such that it
changes at the same rate as gravitational acceleration “g” from the point mass. Thus, the gradient is
“curved” in an analogous manner to space-time within GR.
A mass-object pushes the vacuum around it “uphill”, against the natural flux of expansion.
Mass may be modelled as doing work on the surrounding vacuum by “curving” it. This occurs
because the nature of the Universe is to expand and upon encountering resistance to its normal flux
from high to low energy, the Universe “pushes back” as it strives to find balance (i.e. equilibrium).
Thus, the matter-Universe interaction is a dynamic mass-energy-vacuum exchange system rather
than material inertly suspended in a vast expanse of nothingness.
EGM considers the spectral energy of a gravitational field to be equivalent to the mass-
energy of the object generating the field, expressible in terms of a PV spectrum analogous to space-
time curvature within GR. It models each of the EM frequencies as populations of “conjugate
Photon pairs”, i.e., each population is “180°” out of phase with its conjugate, consistent with a
Fourier harmonics representation of a constant function in complex form. A conjugate Photon pair
constitutes the definition of a Graviton within the EGM construct. The mathematical summation of
conjugate wavefunction pairs (typically represented as oscillating about “zero”) produces a constant
function, analogous to the manifold stress tensor within GR. The summation of opposing sinusoids
of equal amplitude does not result in the non-existence of energy; otherwise the law of conservation
of energy would be violated. That is, a mathematical “zero” point is an arbitrary assignment and
should not be mistaken for the absence of manifold stress energy.
The density of Gravitons surrounding a mass-object is maximal nearby, gradually
decreasing with radial distance; thus, the greater the population density of Gravitons, the stronger
the gravitational field. These factors are consistent with the manner in which the PV spectrum is
defined via Fourier harmonics, resulting in a spectrum which increases in mode number with radial
distance from a mass-object (i.e. QV mode number decreases with “Graviton” density).
The tendency of the space-time manifold is to expand; however, the presence of matter
interrupts this movement, polarising the QV. Energy is required to alter its state to fewer modes of
higher frequency, counteracting the thermodynamic tendency of any system to move towards a state
of lowest energy and greatest stability. Subsequently, an observer held fixed within a QV gradient
senses that the mode energy is asymmetrical (i.e. higher in the direction of the centre of mass of an
object and lower out in space) and based upon the Quantum-Vacuum-Inertia-Hypothesis (QVIH),
vacuum asymmetry results in an apparent acceleration force on the observer, perceived as gravity.
Rather than a geometric curvature of nothingness, the manifestation of “g” is better
represented as back-pressure from the vacuum as mass-energy exerts its influence upon it. EGM
represents this process as the superposition of two spectra, resulting in a mathematical description
of “g”, utilising Fourier harmonics (enhanced by the PV representation of GR; developed by
“Puthoff et. Al.”). Thus, it may be stated that the EGM construct yields a quantised description of
gravity as articulated in [4]. Moreover, EGM derives the Casimir Force from first principles,
demonstrating that it differs depending on the gravitational field strength of where it is measured.
For example, EGM asserts that the strength of the Casimir Force on Jupiter will be smaller than on
the surface of the Moon. [6]

2 Cosmology

EGM represents a single paradigm which may be applied to precisely derive Cosmological
measurements such as “H0” and “T0” (it is demonstrated that “T0” may be derived from “H0”). The
EGM harmonic representation of fundamental particles serves to validate and substantiate the
evolutionary epochs of our Universe, as science has come to understand them, since the time of the
“Big-Bang”. EGM models mass-objects as being in equilibrium with the QV such that the energy
state of matter describes the energy state of the vacuum. Hence, “H0” and “T0” represent
observational evidence of Cosmological mass-energy equilibration.
Invoking principles of similitude, “H0” is derived by relating the PV spectrum of a “Planck-
Particle” (representing the Universe at the instant of the “Big-Bang”) to the present-day utilising the
“Milky-Way” Galaxy as a basis for comparison. Within the EGM construct, a “Planck-Particle”
denotes the condition of maximum permissible energy density, representing the Universe
compacted to a point. As mass-energy density increases, the PV modal bandwidth compresses such
that for a particle approaching the Planck Scale, the PV spectrum converges into a single mode
approaching the Planck Frequency.
Galaxies are homogeneously distributed throughout the Universe and are “approximately” in
the same stage of evolution. Hence, it follows that we may utilise our own “Milky-Way” Galaxy as
a universal reference to yield an average value of Cosmological gravitational intensity. Utilising
astronomical estimates of total Galactic mass and radius, we may represent the “Milky-Way” as a
“particle” at the centre of the galaxy, termed the “Galactic Reference Particle” (GRP). The radiant
gravitational intensity of the GRP may be calculated from its PV spectral limit.
The GRP is representative of the total mass-energy density and vacuum equilibrium state of
the Universe at the present time; as viewed by instrumentation within our solar system. Thus, “H0”
is derived by comparing the “Planck-Particle Universe” at the instant of creation to the GRP;
facilitated by utilisation of the harmonic representation of fundamental particles.
Relating the Cosmological expansion of the primordial “Planck-Particle Universe” to the
GRP yields an expansive scaling factor “KT”. Subsequently, Wien’s displacement law is applied to
determine a thermodynamic scaling factor “TW” quantifying the manner in which Photons radiated
at the instant of the “Big-Bang” have red-shifted to the microwave range after Hubble time. The
microwave frequency is converted to temperature by relating “KT” and “TW”, producing a value of
“T0” precisely matching physical measurement.
The resulting history of the CMBR temperature corroborates with all epochs of cosmic
evolution as predicted by the SMoC. The theory of early “cosmic inflation” is reinforced and the
recently measured “accelerated expansion” is derived. The Cosmological inflation and accelerated
expansion phenomena emerge naturally within the EGM construct and are not presumed “a priori”
as part of the modeling process. The EGM construct generates the inflationary epoch from first
principles, derived from Particle-Physics. Even though the cosmic inflation epoch is a contrivance
introduced to fit a theory, EGM substantiates its existence because it emerges as a natural
consequence of the derivation of “H0” and “T0”. However, the existence of dark energy / matter
must be questioned due to the fact that the EGM method predicts “H0”, “T0” and Cosmological
inflation / accelerated expansion, without invoking dark matter or energy; producing results
substantially more precise than the SMoC. Within the EGM construct, the contribution of dark
matter / energy to the Cosmological model is shown to be “< 1(%)”.
The EGM construct produces “H0” and “T0” formulations of approximately
“67.0843(km/s/Mpc)” and “2.7248(K)” respectively [“T0” experimental tolerance is presently
“2.725 ± 0.001(K)”]. The derivation of “H0” and “T0” is possible assuming that, instantaneously
prior to the “Big-Bang”, the “Primordial Universe” was analogous to a homogeneous Planck scale
particle of maximum permissible energy density, characterised by a single EGM wavefunction.
Simultaneously, the “Milky-Way” is represented as a Planck scale object of equivalent total
Galactic mass “MG”, acting as a GRP characterised by a large number of EGM wavefunctions with
respect to the solar distance from the Galactic centre “Ro”.
This facilitates a comparative analysis between the Primordial and Galactic particle
representations yielding “H0” in terms of “Ro” and “MG”. Moreover, the analysis is extended by
determining the theoretical frequency shift of a fictitious Graviton radiated from the Primordial
particle, yielding “T0” in terms of “H0”. Consequently, by utilising the experimental value of “T0”,
improved estimates for “Ro” and “MG” are derived as being approximately “8.1072(kpc)” and
“6.3142 x1011(solar-masses)” respectively. The key mathematical facts derived and subsequently
analysed in [5, 6, 7] are as follows,

3 Conclusion

The EGM construct implies that “Accelerated Cosmological Expansion” is attributable to
the determination of the ZPF energy density threshold “UZPF” being “< -2.52 x10-13 (Pa)” [i.e. “< -
0.252 (mJ/km3)”]. Moreover, it is graphically illustrated that the gradient of the Hubble constant in
the time domain is presently positive (i.e. “dH/dt > 0”). Subsequently, it is mathematically
demonstrated that the magnitude of the impact of “Dark Matter / Energy” upon the value of the
Hubble constant and CMBR temperature is “< 1 (%)” such that the Universe is composed of:
• “> 94.4 (%) Gravitons”, “< 1 (%) Dark (i.e. inexplicable) Matter / Energy”, “4.6 (%)
