Unified Field Theory: Finite
by Phil Bouchard

"We can achieve infinite speed using basic nuclear fusion reactors with the adequate technology to cancel the effects of the gravitons."

In 1915, Albert Einstein published his findings on general relativity, the basis for a theory that became so popular that it is now the most widely accepted view of geometric gravitation in modern physics. But what if Einstein had it wrong? The author argues that there are many reasons for believing that the general theory of relativity is flawed and that this can be verified through experimentation. Bouchard offers a new mathematical model based on classical mechanics that he believes will not only be easier to understand but also eliminate many of the wrong suppositions that stem from acceptance of general relativity.

Bouchard begins by discussing some of the aspects of special relativity that was at the base of much of Einstein's subsequent theory. He then comes to the heart of his disagreement with general relativity by proposing a new take on the subject that he dubs Finite Theory. A key component of this theory is to dismiss general relativity's view that time is the fourth dimension and to instead see it in a completely different manner. Without the limitations imposed by general relativity due to its definition of time, concepts embraced in science fiction such as infinite speed, time travel into the future, and even levitation would be possible.

The author provides a plethora of helpful graphs and equations to prove his ideas and even goes the extra mile at times by explaining his conclusions in layman's terms. However, the complexity of the information still makes it accessible primarily to those with at least a bachelor's degree in either science or engineering. Those with this background might find Bouchard's ideas highly thought-provoking.
