**The Romeo Effect Series of Books**

**The Romeo Effect (Length: 53:31)**

Do you ever wonder about some of those preposterous claims by the scientific community? You try to wrap your brain around them, but they just do not make sense logically. Some prime examples are:

Dark Matter exists, but cannot be detected;

Time dilation can cause a moving person to age slower;

Gravity is the result of the bending of spacetime.

There was a time when physics made logical sense. What happened?

What happened is that the scientific community embraced the assumptions of Albert Einstein and raised Einstein almost to the level of a deity. To challenge Einstein’s assumptions brings the whole of the scientific community down upon you and outcasts you and your ideas to the fringes of mainstream science. The curriculums of the physics world indoctrinate students into the assumptions of Einstein to the extant that students can no longer think freely of alternate ideas and concepts.

To be sure, concepts such as Dark Matter, time dilation, and the bending of spacetime do follow mathematically from the assumptions of Einstein. But, what if Einstein’s assumptions are wrong? What if the velocity of light is not constant within all frames of reference? What if the concept of four-dimensional spacetime is wrong and we live in a five-dimensional universe.

This is what I call the* Romeo Effect*. In Shakespeare’s play, *Romeo and Juliet*, Romeo and Juliet are young lovers. However, their warring families refuse to consent to their marriage. Instead, Juliet is being forced to marry another acceptable person. To avoid this forced marriage, Juliet drinks a potion which causes her to feint death. Romeo, thinking Juliet is dead, then commits suicide to be with her in death. However, Juliet awakens before Romeo dies. When she sees what is happening, she also commits suicide.

The *Rome Effect* in science is the creation of ideas and concepts that are based on false assumptions just like Romeo’s false assumption that Juliet was dead. The* Romeo Effect* series of books argues that two of Einstein’s assumptions are incorrect. These two assumptions are replaced with alternate assumptions:

1. Rather than a constant speed of light independent of its source, light travels at a non-constant speed that is dependent on its source as well as the gravitational fields through which it passes.

2. Rather than our universe existing in spacetime which consists of three spatial dimensions and a temporal time dimension, our universe is also moving through a fourth spatial-time dimension. The existence of this spatial-time dimension is supported by some of our modern space probes (e.g. WMAP, Planck, and the Hubble Space Telescope).

The *Romeo Effect* book series, based on these two alternate assumptions, brings basic logic back to our physical universe. There is no Dark Matter. Time dilation only exists in the technology of our clocks, but not in nature. Since Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity depends on gravitational time dilation as the basis for the bending of spacetime, a new concept of gravity is also proposed.

The books in this series are not filled with exotic math calculations, but rather appeal to our sense of logical conclusions. Since the doctors of physics are too indoctrinated into the assumptions of Einstein, the *Romeo Effect* series is geared to the new generation of up and coming scientists. This series appeals mostly to high school science teachers and students of physics. However, anyone with a casual interest in theoretical physics should find this series to be both interesting and provocative.

While the books in this series are still being written, the series itself is based on what I call the Theory of Time. I have spent the last ten years developing this theory. To get a look at my thoughts on this subject, you are encouraged to go to my blog on the Theory of Time and enter the discussion. The blog is located at:
