Welcome to the 55th Special Issue of the SHAPE Journal - a key move towards the final defeat of the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Theory.

Two things separate the consensus in Modern Physics from its Dialectical alternative. And, they both extend concrete effecting-&-affected Reality into thus far unemployable areas. The first of these is in the as-yet-unrevealed Material World below the current level of Sub Atomic Physics. And, the second is in the matter that constitutes so-called Empty Space.

Many of the inexplicables of the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Theory reside in the failure to penetrate these two areas, along with the as yet unexplained, but clearly existent, features such as Charge, Magnetism and Antimatter, all of which seem ideally suited for explanations at a currently undetectable lower level. While, at the same time, the many anomalies such as Action-at-a-Distance, and Electromagnetic Propagation, which not only cry out for a Universal Substrate, but have been explained in such terms, along with every single one of the anomalies clearly evident in the Copenhagen explanations of the Double Slit Experiments.

And, hosts of other quandaries seem to require the same sort of knowledge in exactly the same areas - such as Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and even Quantum Entanglement.

Whether my Substrate Theory is the absolute truth, the final word, is not really the point here. The purpose of this entirely theoretical research is to show alternative explanations are possible, and to undermine Copenhagen - it has done that IN SPADES!
