**What is energy?**

Everything around us is energy. Matter is energy, light is energy, heat is energy. In physics, energy is defined as: *the capacity or power to do work, such as the capacity to move an object by the application of force*. It is important to note that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Energy may transform from one form to another, but one of the key laws of science is that energy is always conserved. Understanding energy at its fundamental level, and why these laws of science exist, may be the key to mankind’s survival.

The study of energy is intricately linked to physics, and more recently, specifically research in particle physics. It was back in 1905 when the famous relationship between energy and mass was introduced by Albert Einstein. It’s been a century since Einstein wrote his papers on relativity, yet the connection with gravity and how it transforms this energy remains a mystery today. Termed, a* theory of everything*, scientists continue to search for the theory that unifies gravity with other forces in the universe, and how energy is transformed between various forms. The problem is that some forms of energy cannot be linked together by one equation. In particular, the understanding of the conversion from matter (mass) to light is not well understood and is represented by the fact that there are two major branches of physics (classical and quantum) to calculate each one.

An understanding of energy, and solving the dependence on the Sun, will likely require a giant leap in particle physics knowledge. It’s critical not only for research and understanding, but potentially for the longevity of the human race in the centuries to come.

## Introducing Energy Wave Theory

This site is dedicated to a new theory on energy – titled *Energy Wave Theory – *that requires a fresh new look on physics, based on the wave structure of matter. The argument that is presented in summary on this site, and detailed in papers linked from this site, is that there is more than a century of physicists misled by the belief that waves cannot travel through a medium in space. This wrong assumption, based on an 1887 experiment to detect a medium known as the aether, has led to inaccurate explanations of subatomic particle experiments.

Energy Wave Theory begins with simple assumptions that matter and light are based on waves, but they have different wave types known as longitudinal and transverse waves. Forces like electromagnetism, gravity and the nuclear force that holds atoms together are unified into one force with a difference in wave type and amplitude. Readers will find that the theory has set a solid foundation and has competed the burden of proof for a new theory in this field including:

- Calculating values that match experimental results, and
- Deriving existing energy and force equations, and
- Providing reasonable explanations for observations in particle experiments

This theory simplifies our understanding of energy, particles and forces. Amongst some of the simplifications are:

- Particles – Instead of dozens of particles, there is only one fundamental particle responsible for creating other particles.
- Photons – Photons are directly linked to particle energy through a transformation of wave type from longitudinal wave form to transverse wave form. There is one wave, in different forms, and energy is always conserved.
- Atoms – The reason for an electron orbiting a proton, its distance and shape is calculated with classical mechanics, reducing the need for a quantum explanation of the electron.
- Forces – Instead of four distinct forces, there is one reason for a change in motion of a particle – to minimize amplitude. Forces have been united in this theory.

**Energy Wave Theory Laws**

- Energy waves travel throughout the aether at a defined wave speed and wavelength as wavelets to form a wavefront according to Huygen’s principle.
- Aether granules are the medium that can respond to a wave such that it can pass its inertia and momentum to the next granule. It may have a memory to understand its state, which holds a defined amount of energy.
- Aether wave centers reflect longitudinal waves and may assemble in formation to create particles via constructive and destructive wave interference.
- Aether wave centers move to minimize amplitude on the wave, thereby preferring the node position of the wave.
- Wave energy is proportional to amplitude, wavelength, wave speed and density of a defined volume.

**Law #1) Energy Travels as Waves**

Energy travels as sinusoidal waves through a universal medium known as an aether. The majority of waves travel as spherical, longitudinal wavelets. Amplitude is reduced at the square of distance from the source and experiences constructive and destructive wave interference.

**Law #2) Granules Transfer Energy**

There are only two sub-particles required for the entire Energy Wave Theory. The first is the fabric of space, which is the aether medium. These are referred to as aether granules that transfer energy in the direction of motion.

In the example below, two granules (marked as “1” and “2”) interact over time. Granule 1 contains energy, collides with Granule 2 and transfers this energy. Granule 2 continues in the same direction as Granule 1 before the collision.

**Law #3) Wave Centers Reflect Energy**

The second of the two sub-particles in this theory is the aether wave center. A wave center does the opposite of a granule – it reflects energy.

In the example below, a granule (marked as “1”) and a wave center (marked as “2) interact over time. Granule 1 contains energy, collides with Wave Center 2 and transfers this energy. Granule 1 is reflected and moves in the opposite direction it was traveling before the collision.

**Law #4) Wave Centers Move to Minimize Wave Amplitude**

A wave center moves to reduce wave amplitude, preferring the node position on a standing wave or the point of minimal amplitude for a traveling wave. This will give rise to all motion and forces on objects, including the formation of particles. There are two wave types: longitudinal and transverse and the node positions are different for these wave forms.

In the diagram below, wave centers marked in black color are on the node and stable. Wave centers that are marked in red are off node and will move to minimize wave amplitude. The last row shows the direction of motion (force) of the wave center to the node position on the wave to minimize amplitude.

**Law #5) Wave Energy in a Defined Volume**

Wave energy is proportional to amplitude, wavelength, wave speed and density of a defined volume. This is illustrated below as a collection of aether granules that have momentum/energy.

**Energy Wave**

This law gives rise to the fundamental, energy wave equation. This is ultimately derived into two forms for longitudinal and transverse wave energy. In turn, these two wave form equations for energy will be derived to common energy and force equations used in physics today. However, it all starts with this one, fundamental equation.
