The salvaging of modern mathematics and physics

It is well known that modern astronomy was begun at about the time of Copernicus and Tycho. Copernicus reintroduced the idea of a heliocentric solar system but had to endure considerable religious criticism whilst doing so. Modern mathematics was effectively begun by Leibniz. Leiibniz was a Lutheran, and the Lutherans are expected to believe in 'hard determinism' so his maths reflected that. Therefore his math should be re-evaluated bearing this in mind but this never has been done adequately - unlike the idea of the sun going round the earth, which was re-evaluated. The snags became obvious to me some years ago, and now it will be necessary for all the world's mathematics and physics to be redone. The problems are getting clearer and clearer all the time, due for example to the work of John Dylan-Haynes, whose numbers now appear to predict 'hard determinism' (or that there is no free will). My methods as described in my book help us get around this. If you take Honderich's point of view on hard determinism I think you will run up against Occam's razor eventually, but that is by the way. In my view we can salvage most of mathematics and physics from its present predicament. I've patched things up for the moment. My time machines seem to work OK and I am experimenting with a time-travelling robot.

The world lived through Copernicus's heliocentric solar system and Einstein's special relativity, so the position is nothing new.

My book "Time Travel in Theory and Practice" will come out through normal outlets like Amazon and Barnes & Noble later this year. But advance review copies will be available freely to some reviewers.

Time Travel in Theory and Practice

For science to be what it should be, it should be allowed to survive in its own right, untrammeled by ancient dogma. This idea is applied to theories of time and the universe and the toxic idea that there is no free will. We deal particularly with the so-called 'specious present' which is not specious at all as anyone who cares to, can easily discover.

This monograph is not a historical or philosophical work, but uses modern physics, observational and psychological techniques, virtual reality, and science studies to examine the borderline problems of time and space. In doing so we have already broken through the psychological barrier of ancient dogma, without in any way losing sensitivity towards it, and we actually catalogue and describe experiences obtained whilst travelling through time, in an acceptable and scientific manner.

Just as Einstein's theory of relativity allowed many well known current advances in science and technology, so too with this work, we may be at the forefront of great new changes in the world. My work has brought us to a stage in human history where a major conceptual leap, comparable with that of Copernicus, Tycho and Galileo is being made, for those who wish for it.

Dr. John Yates received an Honours B.Sc. and an M.Sc.at the University of Sydney, and then a Ph.D. at Melbourne University, Australia. He then went on to do post-doctoral research on the Many Body problem at the Theoretical Physics group at the Physics Department, Sheffield University, England.

Subsequently he founded the 'International Journal of Theoretical Physics' with David Bohm and Clive Kilmister. He then did research on fundamental theories of physics with Professor Robin Gandy, who was a lifelong friend and important research colleague of Alan Turing.

Currently Dr. John Yates is Director of the Institute for Fundamental Studies at Chandor, Goa. The internationally based Institute for Fundamental Studies was initially founded by Dr. Yates and a number of Nobel Prizewinners. Dr. Yates is a life member of the Indian Physics Association. His chief current interest is in time travel.
