I am sure many will disagree, but that's the story of my life. There are certain basic laws of physics – we may not have discovered them yet – that apply in this universe. Feel free to engrave this in stone for future generations. I said it first.

1. Wormholes and causality.

One cannot enter a wormhole and be transported back in time to a point earlier than he entered the wormhole. At best, her could enter the portal, go back in time – which is to say NOT go back in time – and exit as he was entering. In that sense, time travel is not possible. I made this point to John Wheeler, the U/T physics chair in the 60s. Professor Wheeler was spun up on string theory and I had to leave the program. I cannot tolerate nonsense from anyone.

2. String theory.

Bunk. NO string theory/Multiverse math has ever demonstrated anything, made a prediction, or provided an answer to an mathematical problem. The reason is that EVERY 'given' is variable and people can plug in any value they want to get any result they want.

3. Dark matter/Energy.

We cannot interact with 96%, more or less, of the required mass of our universe according to mainstream physics. That notion is predicated on the supposition that photons and nutrinos, (among others) are massless. If a particle carries no mass, it isn't a particle > A photon cannot be slowed down from the speed of light if it doesn't exist > photons carry mass as particles. We can't measure it but that is probably because it holds a type of mass we do not yet understand.

The corollary: If 'massless' particles carry mass, we do not need to postulate 'dark matter'. We have enough mass in the universe. We simply have to expand our thought processes.

4. The speed of light.

The speed of light is a limit only because we limit ourselves. E=MC(2) has been proven over and over, but it is not the final answer. It applies ONLY as long as we do not exceed the speed of light. E=MC(2) fails at the speed of light by postulating an answer of infinity. But it also fails with massless particles which we cannot measure. Assuming the speed of light is the ultimate speed of the universe fails immediately because of distant simultaneous events – or, in Einstein's words, “Spooky events at a distance”.

5. Burnett's theorem for the application of science.

Because what we do not know will always exceed what we do know, placing limits based upon what we know – or think we know – is fallacious and inhibits the scientific process.

a. The speed of light is not a physical limit. It is only the end-point of one mathematical formula. There are others.

b. Nuclear weapons are .1% efficient at best. Matter/Antimatter annihilation is 100% effective and is not restricted to the speed of light.
