Text Box: "The exception tests the rule." Or, put it another way. "The exception proves that the rule is wrong." That is the principle of science. If there is an exception to any rule, and if it can be proved by observation, that rule is wrong.
There is no authority who decides what is a good idea. We have lost the need to go to an authority to find out whether an idea is true or not. We can read an authority and let him suggest something; we can try it out and find out if it is true or not. If it is not true, so much the worse — so the "authorities" lose some of their "authority."

Text Box: The Final Paradigm Shift

Man, through his microscopes, perceives in the atom a semblance of his solar system.
Through his telescopes, he also observes a likeness of that solar system in his galaxy;
his galaxy as a miniaturization of the local spiral group of galaxies; 
and so on, as worlds within worlds within worlds...

And through his logical reasoning,
which is but a consequence of that same natural order of things of the universe,
it should not seem incongruous to the average man that his own locale of the cosmos, too,
is yet another extended image of that lowly atom.

This cosmic region of ours, one among many in observable space,
has thus a proportionate central matter – a cosmic core – as the nucleus,
and layers of galaxy superclusters as the electron cover, or shells.

There is evidence in abundance today to support such a model;
but it is in the form of a giant jigsaw puzzle in disarray.
The pieces, nonetheless, are all there now;
but the picture, the ultimate structure and form of the universe, is not that readily recognizable.

It is even fuzzy to astrophysicists.

In the book we saw the pieces of this grand puzzle all falling in and fitting together,
systematically and beautifully, with nary a conflict.
Here, in the web pages that follow, we shall see this piecing together further clarified with illustrations and figures.

So, the next time a news article or a journal report
takes you deeper into atomic or cosmic space as never before,
do read the new findings once again with the Final Paradigm here in perspective.
"It all adds up now, doesn't it?" is what you're sure to say of verified reports.

Typically, the images from the new Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), installed aboard NASA’s
Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in March 2002, is stunning even cosmologists.
It can now be easily predicted that stars and galaxies will continue to be the order of the day
as the ACS peers deeper and deeper – even beyond the "time of the Big Bang"!

The Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) and such will get even closer to man’s observational limit –
wherefrom the redshifts of even quasars would merge as the Cosmic Microwave Background!

Nevertheless, the ACS itself has now made it all too obvious that
even the most distant bodies of the cosmos detected are not any different from those relatively nearby,
and that they have been but cyclically evolving for eternity in our limited universe of observation.

As Thomas Kuhn (the well-respected professor of philosophy and history of science
who graced the halls of Harvard, Princeton, and MIT) observed:
Paradigm shifts seldom occur as soon as a new paradigm is invented.
Instead, it takes place only when the old one is shown to be inadequate
and the need for a total reevaluation of research is made all too evident.
Concepts then get turned upside down; earlier research is reinterpreted;
and nothing hardly remains what it seemed earlier –
despite it still being the same phenomenon that is described.

Current concepts, as physicists themselves would now hasten to admit,
are inadequate to arrive at that long-sought final and complete theory.

Take, then, a critical look at the pages here (as you may have already done so with the book) –
with the primary aim to debunk it!
It's the best way, perhaps, to win proponents for –
our physical world's absolute and final paradigm shift.
