In this Webpage is presented a new vision of the physical reality that explains all “unexpected” and “inexplicable” results of the most famous experiments related to the behavior and measurement of the speed of light on the Earth’s surface.
Space in the Universe is the medium of the existence of the gravitational field and the electromagnetic field. Different intensity of the gravitational field defines different behavior of electromagnetic radiation. The new vision of physical reality considers the Universe into two aspects ‒ local and global. It determines the behavior of the electromagnetic radiation in two aspects ‒ see sub-pages “Behavior of electromagnetic radiation in a local time-spatial domain” and “Behavior of electromagnetic radiation in the global physical reality of the Universe“.
The time-spatial domain “Local Physical Reality” is any time-spatial domain with practically uniform (the same) intensity of the gravitational field (as on the surface of any celestial body), where the base units of time and of space (length) can be considered to be the same. Our local physical reality can be named “near the Earth’s surface”.
The Global Physical Reality of the space-time in the Universe is actually the infinite set of local time-spatial domains among the celestial bodies (and on the surfaces of the celestial bodies). Generally, the different local time-spatial domains are with different intensities of the gravitational field.
The space in the Universe is actually the medium, where the gravitational field and the electromagnetic field exist. The electromagnetic field is more a factor in the formation of substances at the “micro-level”, while the gravitational field is a determinant of the “macro-level” formation of matter in the Universe. Both fields distort and “contract” the space at the micro- and macro-level. The behavior and characteristics of electromagnetic waves change in areas with different intensities of the gravitational field.
The content of the web-page is:
1. Behavior of electromagnetic radiation in a local time-spatial domain.
2. Behavior of electromagnetic radiation in the global physical reality of the Universe.
3. The uncertainty (indeterminacy) in the macro-world.
4. The influence of gravitation on the propagation of electromagnetic radiation and on the electromagnetic properties of atoms.
4.1. Again, on the primary importance of the measurement units for the understanding of the physical reality.
4.2. Analysis of the influence of gravitation in regions, where the intensity of the gravitational field is uniform (the same).
4.3. Analysis of the influence of gravitation in regions with weaker gravitation.
4.4. Analysis of the influence of gravitation in regions with stronger gravitation.
4.5. The “Theory of Everything” turns out to be a “Theory of Nothingness”.
