Alternative Approaches in Modern Physics: Part 2 from Administrator's blog

FFP11: Frontiers of Fundamental Physics Are Explored in Paris (by Jonathan J. Dickau): Abstract: A gathering of scientists from around the world took place in Paris, on the 6th through 9th day of July – the 11th international symposium on the Frontiers of Fundamental Physics. There are admittedly quite a few scientific conferences every year, but most are limited in scope to a fairly narrow range of topics, where the organizers of the FFP conference series have quite deliberately tried to be broader – without sacrificing depth. I made a special effort to be at this one, after attending FFP10 in Perth last November, and it was indeed worth the effort for me. The roster of invited speakers was impressive indeed, with several of the top names in each field. But the depth and breadth of the contributed talks and posters was rather impressive, as well, making for a lively and well-rounded conference.

The Crisis in Theoretical Physics: The Problem of Scientific Truth (by Temur Kalanov): Abstract: The problem of truth in science - the most urgent problem of our time - is discussed. The correct theoretical analysis of the generally accepted foundations of theoretical physics is proposed. The principle of the unity of formal logic and rational dialectics is a methodological basis of the analysis. The main result is as follows: the foundations (i.e. classical thermodynamics, the special theory of relativity & quantum mechanics) contain logical errors. The existence of logical errors is irrefutable proof of incorrectness of the theoretical foundations and means that theoretical physics enters the greatest crisis. The crisis in physics leads inevitably to the general crisis in science. The crisis as effect is explained by existence of the global cause: the crisis is a collateral and inevitable result of inductive method of knowledge of the Nature.

In Response to Kalanov: A Crisis for Physics or Limitations of Logic? (by Jonathan J. Dickau): Abstract: The paper by Temur Kalanov “The Crisis in Theoretical Physics: The Problem of Scientific Truth” asserts that “The existence of logical errors is irrefutable proof of incorrectness of the theoretical foundations” of Physics. While Kalanov raises some legitimate concerns about how we have come to found our current theoretical edifice, it is my view that he is incorrect to assert that this constitutes disproof. His work may show that some of our cherished notions have a flimsy basis, if we believe his construction, but this is not the same as showing that these notions are incorrect.

In Response to Kalanov: How Many Truths Exist in Science? (by Alexander G. Kyriakos: Abstract: During past five thousand years, scientists have used all existent approaches. Owing to their subjectivism the scientists turn each time from one approach to the other. Old theories were replaced by the new theories, which were more appropriate to modern stand of spirit of the people. Thus, what is necessary to be done now, if a modern scientific theory is not true? Is it sufficient to correct the Bacon law or is it needed something else? I think that first of all it is necessary to construct a new theory and then publish the new theory in an Open Journal System such as the Prespacetime Journal. And then maybe much patience is needed within the next 100 years to wait until the scientific society accepts this new theory.
