In 2002 Mark McCutcheon published the first edition of his book The Final Theory at Universal Publishers. It was an instant success on the Amazon website, however it also created some controversy. It presented to the world a new Theory of Everything that worked out of the box, to replace Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation, Einstein’s Theories of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
The Crisis in Cosmology
Today’s crisis in Cosmology is perhaps best demonstrated by an apparently accelerating expansion of the universe where a ‘Dark Energy’ must be postulated to justify this extraordinary acceleration apart — an energy that itself defies both explanation and the Law of Conservation of Energy.

This Sunday (August 21st), Cindy brings us theoretical physicist and futurist Dr. Michio Kaku, well-known as a guest of many shows on cable television and radio. Dr. Kaku is the author of a new book that just hit the NYTimes best seller list: Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration of the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel. Cindy and this innovative working scientist discuss the recent nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan, plus other important and timely issues. Continue reading
Gravity is one of the most familiar everyday phenomena, yet it has mystified scientists and laymen for centuries. Even today, although the current official position on gravity is a continual “space-time warping” around objects – a claim from Einstein’s General Relativity theory, it is also still widely considered an endless attracting force emanating from objects, as claimed in Newton’s gravitational theory. Setting aside the troubling implications of two different physical descriptions of gravity in our science for the moment, it turns out that the behavior of a simple spring may hold the final answer to this age-old mystery.
Interstellar space-travel and near-instant communication; discovering a network of intelligent extraterrestrial signals; harnessing the mysterious instantaneous quantum-entanglement effect. These are all either science fiction or things we will probably never live to see or understand, correct? Not at all. By the end of this article you will see how clarifying a simple but extremely fundamental misunderstanding in our science legacy makes all of this a viable reality – now. Continue reading
On 4 March 2010, New Scientist magazine published an article entitled “Knowing the mind of God: Seven theories of everything“, where Michael Marshall reviewed the most promising candidates for the Theory of Everything, the Holy Grail of theoretical physics. So, what does this report card have to say – is our search for this ultimate scientific understanding going well?
One of the most striking revelations of this article is that all of the profiled candidates are quite different from each other, demonstrating that there is still no fundamental physical or theoretical agreement on the operation of our universe. Each theory is a favorite of one of a number of disparate camps within the scientific community, and each still falls under the general umbrella of our known scientific paradigm, or Standard Theory.

As a sci-fi author and science consultant for films and television documentaries, I have made it my mission to seek out every alternate theory out there – no matter how crazy they may seem – to explore any possibility of new physics that might be uncovered and put to use. That is, until I came across something so perfect and convincing that I had to stop in my tracks.
I now realize, to my complete astonishment, that the true Theory of Everything may already exist, in a book published soon after the new millennium – you just haven’t heard about it yet. Who is this author, Mark McCutcheon, and what is this book, The Final Theory, that I have read? My God! This is not the usual crackpot theory used as fodder for some lame sci-fi TV series; this is it – the first truly viable new physics to have ever arisen.
As I read on and on, for the first time gaining a complete understanding of all that is currently mysterious and weird in theoretical physics, including Newton ’s gravity, Einstein’s relativity, and especially the quantum mechanics of Niels Bohr, I found myself making a complete turn around. I will never see the world the same way again.
