Paradigm Shifts

The Theory of Elementary Waves (TEW) is a paradigm shift. A paradigm shift means that an idea comes along that is based on assumptions that are so drastically different that they make no sense to leading scientists. The new approach leads to a worldview that the leaders in science denounce as garbage, not even worth thinking about. Because the major advances in science come via paradigm shifts, therefore scientists must always be uneasy because some crackpot theory may turn out to the key to the future. Franco Selleri, an Italian physicist who is one of the founders of Elementary Wave Theory, says that in science the mainstream orthodoxy is usually wrong.

How the continents arranged to form Pangea

Alfred Wegner proposed in 1912 that all the continents had previously been joined in one super-continent, for which he coined the name “Pangea.” Not only do today’s continents fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, but also the record of fossils fit together, as shown in this diagram. His idea of continents drifting apart was rejected by all leaders of science and by geological scholarly societies as garbage not even worth thinking about. Even his father in law denounced Wegener’s stupid idea. Many decades later it was discovered that the sea floor was not flat, but
the Atlantic had a mountain range down the middle, consistent with the idea of sea floor spreading. Thus plate tectonics was born. Wegener was the founding father of plate tectonics, which is the foundation upon which all geology is based today.

In 1996 Thomas Kuhn published a book about scientific revolutions, showing that paradigm shifts involve such a drastic change of starting assumptions that the leading scientists find it is ridiculous and say it is not even worth thinking about.

One of the paradoxes of the 21st century is that leaders in quantum physics all agree there is something fundamentally wrong with quantum mechanics, nevertheless they are not open to the Theory of Elementary Waves as a way to fix it. If you ask the leaders of science today about TEW they will tell you that it is absurd, not even worth thinking about. If you persist they will flunk you as a student, deny you tenure, and you will become a pariah.
