4.a.3. Physics research

The physics research should be a science that presents less problems because of the subject matter it studies. In principle, if Newton’s apple falls to the ground, it falls regardless of the ideologies or interests of any kind. However, if it is analyzed in greater depth, it will be revealed that the theories and knowledge of physics have changed throughout history, and at times, completely disproving the previous theory.

Some apples have fallen even after thousands of years, like the dance of the planets and the sun.

The biggest problem of the physics research is the new theories because basic definitions are never deductive and they deal with the unknown. There will always be a set of alternative theories proposing solutions more or less adventurous, and the population in general will take years or decades to assimilate the complexity of its era.

An illustrative example of the topic is the ancient witches in which we all have the concept of the pseudo-scientific explanations that were invented to gain power in the tribe. But if we analyze it from the point of view of their era, we would then realize that they were actually true modern scientists.

Let’s look next at some concepts of General Physics and Modern Physics that, in my opinion, attack common sense and distort the methodology of science by dulling the argumentation in the subject matter.

  • Classical physics

    • The concept of energy

      What is interesting is the concept of energy being the acceleration of the mass of a unit of space, yet not having mass. It seems to be one of those mystical mysteries, especially, if on top of that, the transformation occurs between mass and energy, and that they are like two expressions of the same.

      In short, the newly acquired concepts in physics research are always rather imprecise and changeable for which they should not be considered unvarying.

      Energy = mass * acceleration * space
      = mass * velocity²
      = kg * m² / s²

      ♦ Energy has no mass ??
    • The potential gravitational energy - Negative energies

      The potential gravitational energy of mass m in a point of space is the effort that the gravitational field exerts to move mass m from said point to infinity. According to the definition, the potential energy is always negative and its maximum is always zero. This does not help the mind when thinking about it or physics research in the particular subject.

      The relationship between gravity, potential gravitational energy, kinetics, and electromagnetism sets one to thinking in relation to the true nature of gravity. When something doesn’t seem like certain science, solutions are sought to be able to progress. The existence of negative energies, conventionally or not, is a good example of what not to do with a good methodology of physics since a conflict presents itself in basic references to the brain when arranging certain concepts.

    • Bond energy

      Bond energy is released when protons and neutrons are joined together to form an atomic nucleus, I think that it would be better to call it a release energy rather than bond energy, since precisely this energy is that which is not present in the bond or bonds of an atomic nucleus.

      This case is not as serious as those previously mentioned but the concepts and titles that do not correspond to the meanings of the words defy all logical reasoning, especially if it is common practice and if the meaning is exactly the opposite to that which the brain expects.

As a general rule, it can be said that speaking about the negative elements in physics research unfolds the brain limits in complex reasoning.
