Varos and Gravity

(Varos and Gravity: The Original and Ultimate Forces in the Universe and the Ultimate Unifying Forces of All the Forces)

According to Atomism as taught by the great ancient Atomist Epicurus, all atoms possess a force derived from their own mass that acts as a downward force upon the void, which has no power to affect the atoms moving through it. This force is called varos. It is translated as meaning weight, which is not a correct translation, when weight is defined as the force of gravity on an object. This is because gravity had not been discovered. Gravity was not discovered until over a thousand years after Epicurus. For this reason, the Atomists regard varos as the original, natural motion of the atoms.

However, it is important to understand that gravity, like varos is an inherent property of the atoms, and that the gravitational interaction of the atoms ultimately produces all of the other forces in the universe. This is shown by the fact that there are no gravitationally neutral forces in the universe.

Beside varos and gravity, there are forces called electromagnetic forces and weak and strong nuclear forces. Since these forces are not inherent or fundamental properties of the atoms, they must be derived from certain motions of aggregates of atoms. Without gravity, no aggregate of atoms could ever come into existence, and there would be no derived forces of any kind.

It is important for physicists to understand that a force of attraction between two bodies of mass can be separated by a distance, but no force can be separated from mass, which is made up of atoms. For this reason, all forces in the universe are atomic in nature. This means that the five forces of nature called varos, gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces are all atomic forces. Since gravity is an inherent and fundamental property of the atoms, it has to be the ultimate unifying force of the derived four forces – electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces.

Notice that I have used The Theory of Atomism, which states that nothing can exist, which is non-atomic, except the void, to unify the five forces of nature. This is what physicists have been trying to do with failure, because they do not understand the true atomic nature of matter and its forces, or actions.

Albert Einstein tried to develop a theory that would unify the forces of nature but failed.

Now that I have shown physicists what the original and ultimate forces in the universe are, and also what the ultimate unifying force of all the forces is, I have solved for them the two greatest problems in theoretical physics.
