In this paper, we will demonstrate, based on reasoning as well as mathematical evidence and experimental observations, why Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and is not, as previously thought, instantaneous. The misunderstanding that Newtonian gravity is instantaneous has constrained our progress in understanding gravity to its full extent. We will show that all of Newton’s gravitational phenomena contain the Planck length and the speed of gravity; this speed of gravity is identical…

The Newtonian gravity constant G plays a central role in gravitational theory. Researchers have, since at least the 1980s, tried to see if the Newton gravitational constant can be expressed or

Measurements of the Planck length from a Ball-Clock without Knowledge of Newton’s Gravitational Constant G or the Planck Constant

In this paper we show how one can extract the Planck length from ball with a built-in stopwatch with no knowledge of the Newtonian gravitational constant or the Planck constant. This is remarkable

Planck Length, Planck Time and Speed of Gravity When Taking into Account Relativistic Mass with No Knowledge o ↵ G , ~ or c

In this paper, we take into account Lorentz’s relativistic mass and then derive formulas for the Planck length and the Planck time that are not dependent on any other constants. Thus we can find the

Rethinking the foundation of physics and its relation to quantum gravity and quantum probabilities: Unification of Gravity and Quantum Mechanics

In this paper we will show that standard physics to a large degree consists of derivatives of a deeper reality. This means standard physics is both overly complex and also incomplete. Modern physics

Does Lorentz Relativistic Mass Make Dark Energy Superfluous?

This paper shows that a simple and relativistic extension of Newtonian gravity that takes into account Lorentz relativistic mass leads to predictions that fit supernova observations of magnitude

The Collision Time of the Observable Universe is 13.8 Billion Years per Planck time: A New Understanding of the Cosmos based on Collision Space-Time

We have recently presented a model that seems to allow us to unify gravity with quantum mechanics in a simple and logical way. We have called this theory collision space time. In previous papers, we

Haug [1] has recently introduced a new theory of unified quantum gravity coined “collision space-time.” From this new and deeper understanding of mass we can also understand how a grandfather

Natural Units‘ Collision Space-Time Maximum Simplified Theory that Fits Observations

We have recently [1, 2] shown a possible method to unify gravity and quantum mechanics in a simple way that we have called collision space-time. Here, we demonstrate a special version of our theory

Three Dimensional Space-Time Gravitational Metric, 3 Space + 3 Time Dimensions

We have recently suggested a new quantum gravity theory that can be unified with quantum mechanics. We have coined this theory collision space-time. This new theory seems to be fully consistent with

The Planck Constant and its Relation to the Compton Frequency

The Planck constant is considered one of the most important universal constants of physics, but its physical nature still has not been fully understood. Further investigation and new perspectives on

In this paper, we show how one can find the Planck length multiplied by the speed of light, lpc, from a Newton force spring with no knowledge of the Newton gravitational constant G, the speed of

Collision-space-time: Unified quantum gravity

We have recently presented a unified quantum gravity theory [1]. Here we extend on that work and present an even simpler version of that theory. For about hundred years, modern physics has not been

What is faster—light or gravity?

General relativity lacks the notion of the speed of gravity. This is inconvenient, and the current paper is aimed at filling this gap. To that end I introduce the concept of the ‘alternative’ and

Bounding the Speed of Gravity with Gravitational Wave Observations.

Using a Bayesian approach that combines the first three gravitational wave detections reported by the LIGO Scientific and Virgo Collaborations, this work constrain the gravitational waves propagation speed c_{gw} to the 90% credible interval 0.55c<c_{ gw}<1.42c, where c is the speed of light in vacuum.

Relativistic Newtonian Gravity Makes Dark Energy Superfluous

This paper shows that a simple and relativistic extension of Newtonian gravity leads to predictions that fits supernova observations of magnitude versus redshift very well without having to rely on

An observation on the congruence of the escape velocity in classical mechanics and general relativity in a Schwarzschild metric

In classical mechanics, the escape velocity is defined as the minimum value of velocity that an object requires in order to leave a gravitational field asymptotically. This quantity may be used to

Tests of Lorentz Symmetry in the Gravitational Sector

Lorentz symmetry is one of the pillars of both General Relativity and the Standard Model of particle physics. Motivated by ideas about quantum gravity, unification theories and violations of CPT

The Newtonian Constant of Gravitation

I SHOULD be obliged if you would allow me to make a correction in my lecture at the Royal Institution, published in NATURE, Aug. 2, 9, and 23, on page 331. I have stated that in pieces of apparatus

Six easy roads to the Planck scale

We give six arguments that the Planck scale should be viewed as a fundamental minimum or boundary for the classical concept of spacetime, beyond which quantum effects cannot be neglected and the

The Gravitational Constant and the Planck's Units: A Simplification of the Quantum Realm

In this paper, I suggest a new way to write the gravitational constant that makes all of the Planck units: Planck length, Planck time, Planck mass, and Planck energy more intuitive and simpler to
