Approximately twenty five years ago a novel proposal was made to explain two of the outstanding cosmological conundrums, namely those of the Horizon Problem and the Flatness Problem of the Universe. These are the fact that widely separated parts of the sky that have never been in causal contact during the evolution of the Universe have apparently the same CMB temperature and the fact that the mean density of the Universe is very close to the critical one, i.e. very close to the density that… Expand

The Sagnac effect in conformal Weyl gravity
We investigate the Sagnac effect, representing the difference in travel time or phase shift observed for relativistic matter or light beams counter-propagating in a rotating interferometer. This isExpand

In the book „The Mathematical Reality, Why Space and Time are an Illusion“, (UnA1), , the concept of „Vision – Mathematization – Simplification“ is proclaimed. The overall „Vision“ is about aExpand
A Kummer function based Zeta function theory to prove the Riemann Hypothesis and the Goldbach conjecture
We claim that an alternative Kummer function based Zeta function theory overcomes current challenges of several RH criteria. The probably most elegant RH criterion is the Hilbert-Polya conjecture,Expand

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
