Comment on this Issue


Welcome to the second special Issue of the SHAPE Journal, and the first Cosmology Special.

The Cosmology Specials

Since March 2009 this author has written some 24 papers connected with the field of Modern Cosmology. You might think that to have done this, the writer must be a Cosmologist or an Astronomer, with vast, detailed knowledge in this specialist area, but, in fact, neither is the case. The writer was trained as a physicist, and has since taught Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science at all levels up to and including Higher Education so is extensively knowledgeable in those fields.

But he is not your usual scientist by any means, indeed, while still a student at University he was regularly and emphatically disagreeing with his lecturers and professors, and could not stomach the (to him) clearly evident retreat from real Science heralded by the all-conquering Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Theory.

This was not, it should be stressed, any rejection of Atomic or even sub-Atomic Physics, that produced this standpoint, but a total rejection of the stance taken by Bohr, Heisenberg et al, who insisted upon the abandonment of all "scientific explanation", for a purely pragmatic reliance ONLY upon relations extracted from data gathered in experiments. The rest of prior science was condemned as pure speculation and indeed even self-kid. ONLY these extracted equations contained Objective Reality and everything should be revealable solely by reference to them. It was the epitome of specialisation!
