with rapid advances in any scientific discipline you?d care to imagine, one
might be forgiven for believing the universe as we know it has few mysteries
left to tell.
but you?d be wrong.
physicists, cosmologists and astronomers ? not to mention a bevy of amateur
theorists ? are still wrestling for a way to unify all the known fundamental
forces and interactions between particles into a single theoretical framework.
so far the quest has proven unattainable.
a term coined by einstein, unified field theory (sometimes referred to as the
theory of everything) has remained the holy grail for physicists and others
seeking to explain the behaviour and nature of all matter. to date, no
consistent explanation that takes into account known aspects of gravity and of
quantum mechanics, on the subatomic level, in a single framework has been
an amateur astronomer from qualicum beach thinks he might hold the key that
unlocks the intractable problems of all those who?ve gone before.
?my model is a huge magnetic field that?s moving through space, turning like a
huge dynamo while creating electricity,? says stuart vinnedge.
?galaxies line up along the flux lines of magnetic force,? he says, adding
that the entire super-structure is toroidal, or roughly doughnut shaped,
similar, by no coincidence, to the form of a magnetic field.
vinnedege, who was once a shellfish worker and now runs a home-based courier
company, says the great thing about his theory is its simplicity.
?i think its strength is that it is a simple idea. it?s based on empirical
evidence and can be understood by the masses.?
after all, he says, the effects of magnetism are found in all matter.
