– Science and cosmology enthusiasts are in for an innovative, thought-provoking read as author Christina Anne Knight (of Newport News, VA) presents The Short Range Anti-Gravitational Force and The Hierarchically Stratified Space-Time Geometry in 12 Dimensions. Released through Xlibris, this book provides ideas and theories that would stir readers’ imagination.
The field of cosmology may be on the verge of a significant paradigm shift, as there is an increasing awareness that scientists have missed something fundamental as they carry on in their quest for a theory of everything and a theory that unites general relativity with quantum mechanics. Knight proposes a new theory suggesting that the space-time geometry possesses a complex hierarchical structure that comprises twelve dimensions—nine space dimensions and three time. Furthermore, this structure is divided into three strata, each of which has its own four-dimensional structure and stratum-specific parameters—with variations in the gravitational constant G, the speed of light c, and the Planck constant. Through the pages of this work, this theory is further explained. In addition, she also proposes the existence of a short range force ( the antigravitational force) which is limited to sub-planck length distances. It is this force which establishes the minimum size of a discrete unit of space (and renders the existence of singularities impossible). More issues relating to this subject are discussed within this book (including how an unstable relationship between the gravitational and antigravitational forces is responsible for the perpetual cyclic expansion and contraction of the universe and for the evolution of cosmic parameters). In addition it is the unstable relationship between the oppositional gravitational forces which produces the thermodynamic cosmic gradient that is reduced during the expansion phase of the cosmic cycle. Although not comprehensive, the text is presented in a very comprehensible format to serve as a vehicle in introducing new ideas to lay readers with a minimal familiarity with contemporary cosmology. This book is an initial step towards discovering the answers to the many questions relating to the issues discussed.
