In this remarkable book, the author challenges the traditional definition of motion.  He contends that matter and motion are fundamentally inseparable.  At each level of matter's hierarchy - particles, atoms, gravitating systems - motion is a structural feature; and as objects move in space, they behave as components conforming to a basic composition of kinematic systems.

With motion thus defined, he reexamines with astonishing results the theories for the structure of particles and the origin of the universe.  He introduces a model for subatomic particles based on the general hierarchical pattern that is consistent with physical data.  This model accounts for the known properties of particles.  It also shows that basis of mass and charge, a relationship between relativistic mass and inertia, and the interconversion of mass and energy in a specific structural way.

Bridge From Nowhere takes its place as one of the truly original books on physical theory.  Yet the book is written in a highly readable style which can be understood and enjoyed by any science student. - From the back cover
