The Space-Time Universe

Part 1

(Reprinted from the Theosophy-Science Group Bulletin, Volume XX, Number 3, June, 1981.)

The last years of Einstein were spent in pursuing his cherished dream of evolving a general theory of the universe. He never succeeded. Nor anyone else did, so far. The body of knowledge which we call physical science is at present only a loose collection of numerous different theories, each constructed to explain a particular domain of facts and not applicable to another set of facts. There has not been a general theory covering all physical phenomena, from the microscopic to the macroscopic.

After 3000 Years

Over the past several years this journal has published a series of articles by Dr. K.V.K. Nehru, entitled The Space-Time Universe, which describe a new theory of the physical universe that I originated. These articles have given a good account of the fundamentals of the theory. But many readers may have wondered how we can justify the extent of departure from currently accepted thought that is involved in some of our conclusions. At the invitation of the editor, I am therefore undertaking to supplement Dr. Nehru's presentation with some comments on the general structure of the theory, and the considerations that led to its formulation.

Science Without Apologies

Principal Address to the Fourth Annual NSA Conference
University of Wisconsin, Superior, MN, July 20, 1979

In a well-known Gilbert and Sullivan opera a member of the constabulary undergoes some rather trying experiences in the course of carrying out his duties, and finally breaks into song, telling us that “a policeman‘s lot is not a happy one.” In many respects the lot of those who undertake to correct existing errors in any field of thought is similar to that of the policeman. There is no problem in the case of someone who simply makes a discovery in a new area. Both the scientific community and the world at large are ready to welcome a genuine addition to knowledge with some degree of enthusiasm, and they are willing to look tolerantly on any speculation that is not specifically in conflict with established thought, even if it involves something that strains credulity to the utmost, a black hole, for example.

Principal Address to the Third Annual NSA Conference
University of Utah, Salt Lake City, August 18, 1978

Video: As you’ve noticed, it took quite a little while for the CBS crew to set up this evening, and on that account we’re running at least a half an hour late. So I’m going to omit the first half hour of what I was going to say… It’s unfortunate, because that will include some of my most shady jokes. But I’ll try to take up from that half hour period. Frank took you back into history quite a little way, but just to do him one better, I’m going to go still farther back.

Twenty Years' Progress

Principal Address to Second Annual NSA Conference
Oxford, MS, August 19, 1977

The Reciprocal System of physical theory was first brought to the attention of the scientific community about twenty years ago in a book entitled The Structure of the Physical Universe. That book is now out of print, and for the last six or eight months I have been working on the first volume of a revised and greatly enlarged edition which, if all goes well, will be ready for publication in the not too distant future. One of the tasks that necessarily had to be undertaken in preparing for the revision was to make a detailed review of the entire subject matter of the original work, including the portions that were omitted for the published text in order to limit the size of the book. This review now offers a good opportunity to assess the amount of progress that has been made in the development of the theory during the twenty-year interval.

Dialogue with Dewey B. Larson, Part II

Below are reproduced further comments on D. B. Larson’s Nothing But Motion (NBM) and on Quasars & Pulsars (QP), interspersed with responses by the author. The correspondence from which this dialogue is excerpted took place c. 1980.

Dialogue with Dewey B. Larson, Part I

Reproduced below are comments on D. B. Larson’s Nothing But Motion (NBM) and New Light on Space and Time (NLST) interspersed with responses by the author. The correspondence from which this dialogue is excerpted took place c. 1980.

  1. KVK: p. 156, 13th line from bottom, NLST: Instead of the words “basic vibrating unit” it must be “rotational base.”

    p. 123, 10th line from bottom, NBM: in “However, the rotational displacement… ,” the word “rotational” should be replaced by “vibrational.”
