A novel systems
approach to physics that has far reaching
implications for field theory, astronomy, and cosmology
kinetics is a revolutionary physics methodology that was
inspired by advances in our understanding of how nonequilibrium
reaction systems spawn self-organizing wave patterns. Replacing
the fragmented and self-contradictory framework of modern physics,
subquantum kinetics opens the door to a truly elegant unified
field theory. Electromagnetic, gravitational, and nuclear
potential fields all emerge from a single set of nonlinear equations
representing subquantum processes postulated to take place throughout
all space. It is the first fundamental theory to have its
predictions of the nucleon's energy potential profile later confirmed
by particle scattering form factor data.
approach, which is consistent with the ideas of Whitehead, Einstein,
de Broglie, and Feynman, provides answers to many fundamental
questions: Namely, how does the subquantum matrix generate the
zero-point energy continuum and spawn the formation of matter?
How do charge and mass come into being and how do they
generate fields consistent with the laws of electrostatics and
gravitation? Subquantum kinetics also lays the foundations for
a new wave theory of matter. Its nondispersing, periodic
structures resolve the wave-particle dualism and produce de Broglie
wave diffraction effects consistent with observation.
kinetics also leads to a new view of our cosmos: an open, order-generating
universe, continuously creating matter and energy. Its
prediction of a new form of energy, continuously emerging within
all planets and stars, led to the discovery that planets, brown
dwarfs, and red dwarf stars all share a common mass-luminosity
relation and it also anticipated the anomalous blueshift found
in the Pioneer 10 maser signal.
book addresses many other subjects such as: Is the universe
really expanding? What produces the cosmological redshift?
Do black holes really exist? What makes stars pulsate?
Why do blue supergiants produce supernova explosions? What
powers galactic core explosions? It also provides some
insights into the electrogravitic connection that Brown was researching.
In particular, chapter 11 gives some background information
on Townsend Brown's electrogravitics.
Some of What's New in the Third
1. Computer simulations of Model G reaction-diffusion
system performed in 2010 (8 total) are discussed and illustrated.
a) earlier published conceptions of the
contour of the subatomic particle's core field pattern,
b) the prediction that a subatomic particle
core is surrounded by a Compton wavelength
periodicity that extends
out to large radial distances, thus corroborating the conclusions
about particle diffraction,
c) the prediction that particle nuclei would
serve as creation centers for the production
of second generation
2. It presents the new insight that spin plays
a leading role in nucleon binding
3. It presents the idea that the neutron is
the first particle to nucleate from a critical zero point
energy fluctuation and that the proton forms
later through beta decay of the neutron with
the accompanying release of an electron and
electron antineutrino. The previous edition
postulated instead that the proton could form directly
from a zero-point energy fluctuation.
4. It plots additional mass-luminosity data
for brown dwarfs, demonstrating further confirmation
of the subquantum kinetics genic energy prediction.
5. It discusses the phenomenon of "Hot
Jupiters", planets in the range of 0.5 to 5 times the mass
of Jupiter in very close orbits around their
parent stars and which are found to have unusually
inflated diameters, up to 80% larger than that
of Jupiter. The new edition shows that this can
be easily accounted for by the genic energy
hypothesis. It shows how stellar diameter correlates
with the enhanced genic energy output predicted
for the planet due to the influence of the
parent's gravity potential well.
6. A general updating of the book to reflect
recent astronomical discoveries and a rewriting of
many parts of the book to make its concepts
more easily understandable.
Acclaim for Subquantum Kinetics
"The book on subquantum kinetics by Paul
LaViolette is one of the first profound works in the investigation
of the physical vacuum. There are grounds to recommend this monograph
as a compulsory textbook for students of the physical sciences.
There is no doubt that this book is an outstanding contribution
to modern physics and that it will receive the attention and
appreciation of many thankful readers."
Professor of chemistry, Tech. D., Tampere, Finland
"Paul LaViolette's book is an admirable and lucid account
that open-minded scientists would do well to examine carefully
for its creative insights."
Eugene F. Mallove
Editor-in-Chief, Infinite Energy Magazine
"This book has a great amount of references,... clear and
convincing criticisms of the big bang and contains an open discussion
of relevant modern physics topics. I recommend it to all people
interested in the foundations of science and in the deeper questions
Koch Torres Assis, Ph.D.

"Entropy perpetually increases in a closed system but the
system that we take as our physical world is not closed. This
is a very important part of the world view of Paul LaViolette,
whose work is highlighted and reviewed on several Open
SETI pages. Readers can use the website's search facility
to locate the key passages.
Briefly, LaViolette is an "astrophysicist"
whose work is not in the mainstream but has turned some very
important heads. I used the quotes because he earned his
Ph.D. in systems theory, although he has published in the field
of astrophysics, and has had access to the Very Large Array,
His several books comprise an elegant "theory
of everything", beginning with the dynamics of the subquantum
domain, showing how this generates subatomic particles and physical
fields, including gravitational fields, and their observed characteristics
and behaviors, building all the way to vast cosmological systems,
not failing to bring in human mythological systems along the
way. LaViolette accomplishes all this with just a very
few equations describing subquantum dynamics. That's it!
the result is breathtaking.
Now, for the purposes of answering your question,
I'll just say that for LaViolette, energy isn't just "there",
arising out of the mythical big bang and running down ever since.
Rather, it comes out of the subquantum domain constantly
and in accordance with specific principles and conditions. The
most important condition is the local gravitational density.
The greater it is, the more energy "comes out". This
"genic energy" is incredibly important for understanding
how astronomical objects work.
Important for us, here and now, because, living in a galaxy as
we do, we are subject to what LaViolette describes as "Galactic
Superwaves" - periodic galactic core explosions whose shock
waves have in the past and will continue to rampage through this
galaxy and all others.
Out of his theory, LaViolette lists numerous predictions,
which have been being fulfilled one by one ever since he originally
published. Many more have yet to be tested!"

"LaViolette's book [Subquantum Kinetics] in which
he discusses his Model G is a masterpiece."

"This book should be in every college
library... This reviewer strongly welcomes Dr. LaViolette's contribution
to a much better understanding of the many unexplained problems
in physics and a theory that can be used to unravel these long-standing
mysteries. This book is highly recommended.
Hal Fox, Editor,
Journal of New Energy
"His work is considered as a step into the 21st century.
We recommend Subquantum Kinetics to our readers."
Anthropos, volume 13, 1998
"Much of science is so specialized that
the research is performed and reported in a vacuum. It is always
refreshing to come across scientific thinkers who go beyond a
single discipline, who explore and explain how their model may
account for a wide range of phenomena. Paul LaViolette is such
His speculation about subquantum kinetics is
more than a theory. It may be a kind of doorway to more generous,
unified concepts than those we have been trying fruitlessly to
reconcile. Waves and particles, the relative and the absolute,
entropy and order, all fit into an exciting rudimentary new way
of seeing whole.
In one sense, the idea of a reactive-diffusive
ether is startling. However, as the reader explores this notion,
it begins to make sense. Once considered, it seems more intuitively
plausible than our familiar idea of dead and empty space. It
is more like our earliest sense of a living, breathing universe."
