Dear SPF Friends:

Here and in a related discussion at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic ... icQBlYC0Ms, I uploaded my draft paper at https://jayryablon.files.wordpress.com/ ... er-5-5.pdf on what I have named "hyper-canonical electrodynamics," for review and comment. You may have obtained this same document from http://vixra.org/pdf/1710.0159v4.pdf. Because that paper among other results places the electrodynamic Lorentz motion onto an entirely geometrodynamic footing in four spacetime dimensions alone, I felt it important to compare the way in which I geometrize electrodynamics, to Kaluza-Klein theory which will have its centenary anniversary next year and which is the only other theory that to my knowledge has successfully geometrized electrodynamics, albeit by requiring a fifth dimension which has been a source of other challenges.

While doing so I came to understand that these two theories are not incompatible, and that when one combines certain of their key results together, one can come to understand electromagnetic time dilation as merely another facet of gravitational time dilation and so acquire a deeper understanding of the relation between electromagnetism and gravitation.

So these past two days I assembled this new material into the first draft of a brand new paper at https://jayryablon.files.wordpress.com/ ... on-1-0.pdf which I plan to further develop and submit for peer review as a second paper bundled together with my first paper linked above. I would be happy to hear any comments on this paper, which may also provide the opportunity for us all to have some fun with Kaluza-Klein theory in its own right as well, and to talk about something besides Bell's Theorem.

This new paper may be of use to you in another way as well. My first paper is 120 pages, which includes 20 pages of appendix material, so I fully recognize the time and focus challenge this presents for anyone looking to study and assess this in detail. This new paper is just shy of 12 pages. And by reading this new paper first, then referring to the earlier paper as needed, especially if you are already familiar with Klauza-Klein which will give you some good context, this new paper may give you another "lens" for more-readily assimilating and assessing my longer paper.

Hope all is well for all.

Jay
