Comments on Matter/Mass/Field Categories

In the “Introduction to the Revision of the Unitary Theory of the World # 2” (see Section  “ESSAYS” ) I stated:  


“While wording the original Unitary theory of the World, there were revealed some inconsistencies in description of basic knowledge and definitions of fundamental categories, such as energy, fields, mass/matter, gravitation, electric, magnetic, electromagnetic phenomena and others.


In the “style” of the UTW, the status might be improved by reconsideration of the interrelation among the energy (EE), mass/matter (EM), and field (EF), respectively.


Namely, the interrelation should be expressed – respecting the basic positivistic knowledge and definitions of energy, mass/matter and field in physics - as follows:


ELNM Ù (ES Ú ET Ú EE Ú ED Ú EI Ù ER) Ù EP Ù EC Ú E1Ú E2 Ú E3 Ú..Ei-1 Ú Ei Ú Ei+1Ú ..├ EM


ELNF Ù (ES Ú ET Ú EE Ú ED Ú EI Ù ER) Ù EP Ù EC Ú E1Ú E2 Ú E3 Ú..Ei-1 Ú Ei Ú Ei+1Ú ..├ EF


(Note: the meaning of individual symbols E is given in the UTW in the Section “ESSAYS”)


That means: mass/matter and fields could be understood as specific forms of energy, which are specifically “structured”, widespread and/or “locked in space” (mass), respectively, under specific laws of nature ELNM or ELNF, respectively, and which are being in specific interactions with the other principal categories and individual/specific elements, parts, processes, etc. of the Objective Reality (although hitherto unknown in all details).

This could acquire/give to mass/matter specific features, like: inertia, gravitation, ability to change/modify fields, space-time structures and dimensions, particle structure, electric charges, electric, magnetic and electromagnetic properties and phenomena, attractive and repulsive forces, mechanical properties of matter, storing and conversions of energy, and phenomena which are intrinsic to all the physical, inorganic, organic, living, thinking etc. objects and/or phenomena in Nature and World.   


The postulated “locked-space” principle of mass particles existence might elucidate naturally the observed deformation of a space-time structure around mass objects and the phenomenon of gravitation, too. 

It all might help to reveal further consequences to better understanding of our World.”


That was why I decided to leave out the matter (EM) from the principal categories of the original design of the Unitary Theory of the World and to revise it (the Theory) on October 2014.          

Let me add some explanatory notes to the topic:

Note # 1

In my opinion, the matter/mass/field should be supposed as categories of “lower rank” than energy and other “principal” categories in the revised Unitary Theory of the World.

Note # 2

I understand Matter as a “staff” which shows (optionally)  properties/parameters like:

  • mass /weight/inertia

  • space/volume

  • structure

  • components/parts/particles

  • transformability

  • gravitation,

  • electrical, dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric, superconductive, etc. properties/parameters

  • magnetic, diamagnetic, ferromagnetic, antiferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic, and others *-magnetic  properties/parameters

  • electromagnetic properties/parameters

  • optical, electro-optical, magneto-optical, acousto-optical, and others *–optical properties/parameters  

  • mechanical,  electro-mechanical, acousto-mechanical, piezo-mechanical, and others  *-mechanical  properties/parameters   

  • thermal, thermomechanical, thermoplastic and related properties/parameters  

  • chemical, crystallo-chemical, biochemical, and others related properties/parameters  

  • biological, microbiological, macro-biological, environmental  and others life related properties/parameters  

and others properties and parameters.


Note # 3

I think, physics might be “Parsimonized” if gravitation would be excluded from a group of fundamental forces of Nature, i.e.  weak, electromagnetical and strong forces.

Gravitation should be considered as a property of the matter, like mass – or weight – and other above mentioned properties/parameters (see note #2).

In my mind, the gravitation force should be considered on the same “rank” of forces like attractive/repulsive electrical, magnetic or other forces.

Gravitation could be connected/caused by distortion of the space around/because of material objects.   

(I offered also an elementary quantum of gravitation (see Section “ESSAYS” - The Value of the Gravitational Force Quantum is 1.4958 x 10-54 N) in June 2014).
