This book is one of the best I have ever seen. More than 40 physicists, among them one Nobel laureate, presented their new theories and new experimental evidence. Kotelnikov suggested an electrodynamics which can describe also particles which are faster than light. This suggestion is in agreement with special relativity.

We know Hector Munera from his interpretation of the Michelson-Morley experiment which, according to Munera, did show an aether drift. In this book, he presented a new approach to the electromagnetic force.

Caroline Thompson presented, for the first time, her phi-wave aether model.

Most revolutionary and far-reaching is K?hne's quantum electromagnetodynamics. His theory is a generalization of quantum electrodynamics. It includes Dirac magnetic monopoles and two kinds of photon, the conventional one which he named "electric photon" and a new one which he named "magnetic photon". His theory is the only quantum field theory of the electromagnetic interaction which can explain the quantization of electric charge, which is local, which is manifestly Lorentz invariant, which describes electrism and magnetism symmetrically, which does not require the Dirac string, and which makes testable predictions.

K?hne's theory predicts that the magnetic photon couples with electric charges, where the coupling strength depends on the absolute motion of the electric charge. As a consequence, the creation, shielding and absorption of magnetic photons is suppressed by a factor of 700 000 with respect to electric photons of the same energy.

As K?hne pointed out, his theory violates the relativity principle.

But what is more: K?hne had presented his theory and suggested an experiment to test his theory already in 1997 (http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/9708394). Now, in his contribution to this book he discussed three independent experiments which confirm his magnetic photon rays.

The far-reaching consequences of this probable discovery include:

  1. The discovery of a new elementary particle (magnetic photon)
  2. The discovery of a new radiation (magnetic photon rays)
  3. Possible applications in medicine (examinations via magnetic photon rays instead of X rays)
  4. The first proof for the violation of the relativity principle of special relativity
  5. Indirect evidence for magnetic monopoles
  6. Indirect evidence for an aether

Wow, could this mean a Nobel prize within the near future?

Anyway, this book is very good. I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in physics and/or the philosophy of science. - Peter M?ller, Amazon
