Original Articles:

Thought Experiment to the Border of Universe Leshan, C.; Kiev University

Abstract: The author conducts a thought experiment where the universe is a sphere suspended in a zero-space (pointform space where the distance between two points is always equal to zero). He then goes on to show that the border of the universe must pass through every point of space and that these "virtual holes" in space and time must therefore exist in every point of the universe and that the borders of the universe may also exist everywhere.

A New Taxonomy of Selection-Types Devaraj, M

Abstract:: The author proposes a new categorization of selection based upon the method of origination of the species. Proposed is the classification of independently-originating species (integrative selection) and dependency-induced species (competitive selection). The supporting arguments are included and well as examples of how such a classification system works and why it is a more evolutionary revealing system.

A New Method of Calculating Gravity without the Gravitational Constant,  Siepmann, JP

Abstract: By using the Space Constant Equation it is possible to accurately calculate the gravitational force of any celestial body and the "fudge factor" of the gravitational constant is able to be discarded forever. This article expands upon the underlying principles outline by Siepmann JP, Journal of Theoretics, Vol. 1 No. 1, The Laws of Space and Observation and demonstrates the usage of the Space Constant Equation.

"Spin Doctors": A New Paradigm Theorizing the Mechanism of Bioenergy Healing, , Benford, MS

Abstract: This article outlines various studies which have shown a change in the measured gamma radiation near bioenergy healers. Contained herein is a theoretical explanation for these findings based upon an expansion of current concepts in physics and biology.

About the Journal of Theoretics:

The journal is a nonprofit organization which gets its funding through grants and donations. The requirements for publication are:

1. It must present a new and yet unproven theory.

2. It must well presented and logical.

3. It may be simple or complex. It may involve a single scientific discipline or span the entire scientific spectrum.

4. It must be scientifically credible.


The following was published in the April 30, 1999 issue of Science (Vol. 284 No. 5415, p707).

Popular Physics?
    The low cost of Web publishing may be transforming science by allowing new journals to blossom, but one new publication for speculation on how the world works has physicists shaking their heads.
    An e-mail press release heralds the Journal of Theoretics* as a "new bimonthly peer-reviewed science journal" that will "publish scientifically credible theories ... that are not yet proven" by experiments. The four debut articles range from "a new concept for the origin of the universe" to something called a "light clock" that's "a new method for measuring time."
    Its scientific bona fides, however, are open to question. Editor James Siepmann, a physician in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, could name no actual scientists who are reviewing or contributing to the journal. "It's very curious," says Bob Park of the American Physical Society, who noted a dearth of equations in the articles. "They're philosophical papers, not physics." Physicist Stephen Walton of California State University, Northridge, commented by e-mail: "A physician is as qualified to publish a theoretical physics journal as I am to remove a gall bladder." Siepmann, however, says that's just the point: "Who is to say that a patent clerk, a CAD designer, or even a family physician may not be gifted with the talents to make revolutionary discoveries of thought?"
    Web publications like Siepmann's pose no threat to the credibility of electronic science journals run by scientists, maintains Paul Ginsparg, who heads the physics e-print server at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico: "Such things have always existed, independent of the Internet," he says. "They're simply irrelevant, except for the entertainment value."

The Journal of Theoretics' Response to Science:

I appreciate the opportunity to correct the errors in your article about the Journal of Theoretics (Science Vol. 284 No. 5415, p707). The Journal of Theoretics (www.journaloftheoretics.com) is not a physics journal but rather a nonprofit peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the development of credible theories from all scientific disciplines. We have upcoming articles in biology, as well as articles which are multidisciplinary. It just happened that most of articles submitted to date were physics related.

The Journal of Theoretics was created in response to the lack of integrated and logical theory development in lieu of single hypothesis studies that have come to dominate our scientific literature over the latter half of this century. Theoretics is a new scientific discipline that combines the accurate use of logic and theory development that will be detailed further in the forthcoming book, "Theoretics, the Future of Science."1 We review each article in terms of its logic and theory development as well as whether the article's interpretation of scientific knowledge is potentially credible.

Science noted that Bob Park of the American Physical Society stated that there was a dearth of equations2 which is curious since one of the articles had over 5 original equations with numerous derivations (compared with most physics papers which usually only have derivations).3 But most frustrating are the ignorant comments from those such as Paul Ginsparg from Los Alamos who makes broad criticisms without stating one fact or reason of logic. If he would have pointed out even just one flaw in any of the articles (which I doubt he read) then I may have been able to take him seriously. It is sad to see that Science would publish such ignorant and unfounded comments.

It is quite bizarre that Science would call Steve Walton4 a "physicist" when he does not even have a graduate degree in anything and yet Science refuses to call our contributors and reviewers "scientists" (most of which have graduate degrees) because they work outside academia. I would put the knowledge of our contributors and reviewers up against any "academic" who has expressed closed-minded negative comments. It is interesting though, that even in academia we have received many more positive (and intelligent) comments than negative ones.

The reaction by some of those in academia to a journal developed outside their auspices and control is exactly why two of our reviewers who currently do work in academia refuse to be publicly known for fear of hurting their careers. Additionally, contrary to what was reported in Science, I did give the names of other reviewers and contributors to Science of which three have received awards and recognition for their publications and scientific works. Even though these three currently work in the public arena, I would dare say that even Science and skeptical academics would have to concede they would fit anyone's definition of "scientist."

Press Release 4/5/99:

The Journal of Theoretics:   A New Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal

The Journal of Theoretics is a new bimonthly peer-reviewed science journal that has just published its premier edition with four original articles. While one of these articles presents a new concept for the origin of the universe, another offers a method of motion classification and demonstrates why some of Einstein's Special Relativity Theory is in error.

Complementing these two original articles is the first presentation of Observational Physics with its supportive equations that offers a new and simple concept of unification that is able to explain everything from quantum to cosmic mechanics. It will detail new concepts of space and time along with explaining what gravity really is!

The last article is about a new device called the Light Clock which offers a new method for measuring time. This includes a new theory of time as well as how the light clock can measure "true time" under any relativistic situations.

Though this issue was orientated towards physics, the Journal of Theoretics accepts articles from all scientific disciplines. We expect to have articles on everything from "A"nthropology to "Z"oology. All articles must be scientifically credible, logical, and must present a previously unpublished theory. So every article will be revolutionary!

Current Issue - March-April 1999 Vol. 1, No.1

  • A Method for Determining Distant Simultaneity and Whether Light is One-way Isotropic

Abstract: A new definition and classification of motion is presented and elaborated herein along with a method of clock synchronization. Additionally, Einstein's clocks are shown to be asynchronous. The impact of this on special relativity theory and one-way light isotropy is discussed.

  • Energy Transactions: The Theory of Everything

Abstract: The theory of Energy Transactions as presented herein is based on the concept of energy being introduced into a void with increasing cycles of energy developing. This theory could not only be the basis of a unified theory but could also explain the origin of the universe.

  • The Laws of Space and Observation

Abstract: The Laws of Space and Observation unify the concepts of time, distance, matter, energy, gravity, and Space. The previously overlooked yet unifying factor is the concept that "Space" really exists as an entity unto itself. The Relative Space Density and Relative Space Warp equations as herein presented allows us to mathematically calculate an object’s gravity, mass, size, Space density, and more from a distant viewing site.

  • The Light Clock: A New Method of Measuring True Time

Abstract: The Laws of Space and Observation state that time is nonrelative. The current methods of interval measurement do not measure true time but rather a periodic occurrence interval, which would be relative to the observer. True (nonrelative) time can only be measured by using a constant, such as the objective speed of light. The interval it takes the speed of light to travel a preset distance in the observer's own space and will always be constant and not subject to relativity as the ratio of dobj (objective distance) to cobj (objective velocity of light) will always be constant to any observer. Such a device as conceived and outlined herein shall be referred to as a "light clock."

 

About the Journal of Theoretics:

The journal is a nonprofit organization which gets its funding through grants and donations. Everyone currently involved are volunteers including our editor Dr. Siepmann who is a full-time physician.

How many momentous advances have we missed because a theory could not be published without being proven first? Nowadays the scientific literature consists mainly of single hypothesis studies. The Journal of Theoretics was therefore created to bring back the opportunity for scientifically credible theories to get published even if they did not have a multimillion-dollar research project that proving it. In fact, we want theories that are not yet proven. The requirements for publication are:

1. It must present a new and yet unproven theory.

2. It must well presented and logical.

3. It may be simple or complex. It may involve a single scientific discipline or span the entire scientific spectrum.

4. It must be scientifically credible.

Even though information about the Journal of Theoretics has only been distributed to select scientific circles, the response has been overwhelming with over a thousand scientists from all over the world visiting the journal's website. This significant and mainly positive response tells us that the Journal of Theoretics will become one of the most important scientific journals of the future.
