Physics ZMV; The Basics of New Physics

Description The Beginning of all Origins is the gravitational field. It consists of moving gravitons in space. Graviton is an elementary quantum of energy when it is in the state of motion and an indivisible particle of mass when it is in the state of rest. Mass is a conglomerate of gravitons in the state of rest, that is, of gravitons which gave to mass its kinetic energy of motion. It is possible to scientifically explain many physical phenomena that classical physics cannot explain or explain them naive, if at the basis of physics put the existence of the gravitational field independent of the mass...
