Mach’s Principle

In this post, I’ll take a quick look at Mach’s principle, an idea from the physics and cosmology discard pile, that is related to or aligned with with NPQG.

Ernst Mach

Ernst Mach (February 18, 1838 – February 19, 1916) made major contributions to physics, philosophy, and physiological psychology. In physics, the speed of sound bears his name, as he was the first to systematically study super-sonic motion. He also made important contributions to understanding the Doppler effect. His critique of Newtonian ideas of absolute space and time were an inspiration to the young Einstein, who credited Mach as being the philosophical forerunner of relativity theory. His systematic skepticism of the old physics was similarly important to a generation of young German physicists.

Mach’s principle suggests that local physical laws, and in particular gravity and inertia, are determined by the the large scale structure of the universe. This is in general agreement with NPQG, where every participating particle is pulsing an energy wave that serves to heat spacetime and give rise to the convective force of gravity. The only particles not participating would be those at the Planck temperature inside a Planck core where they are surrounded by similar particles and the wave equation has halted, or those whose participation is wholly or partially occluded by such a Planck core.

In theoretical physics, particularly in discussions of gravitation theories, Mach’s principle (or Mach’s conjecture) is the name given by Einstein to an imprecise hypothesis often credited to the physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach. The purpose of the hypothesis was to attempt to explain how rotating objects maintain a frame of reference, such as gyroscopes and spinning celestial bodies. The idea is that the existence of absolute rotation (the distinction of local inertial frames vs. rotating reference frames) is determined by the large-scale distribution of matter in the universe.


Mach’s principle plays a role in the work of Robert Dicke. Likewise, Alexander Unzicker intuits that Mach’s principle plays an important role that has not yet been understood by science, or apparently by Unzicker.

There is not that much more to say. Every particle surrounded by spacetime æther is pulsing it’s mass as an interaction of the wave equation of the particle shell with the wave equations of spacetime æther particles. Think of this like an alternating current (AC) interaction. The originating particle essentially has a mass ante on deposit with the spacetime æther and that ante is the root mean square of the energy interaction.
