What it the Universal Field Theory?

The Universal Field Theory is not a physics theory in a classical sense. It is rather a philosophical theory explaining Why and How physical phenomena appear. In that way the theory is a complement to the more mathematically based theories, even though it comes to conclusions that would require adjustments of some of the main present theories, when it explains issues that has stayed unexplained for more than one hundred years. Thus, it proposes solutions to a number of physical phenomena that baffle the scientific world, such as gravity, inertia and Big Bang. It gives logical explainations to why the world is relative in terms of time, the speed of light and others, it combines several of the concepts of the quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, and it proposes reasons for supernovas and the difference between matter and antimatter.

"When an intelligent man expresses a view which seems to us obviously absurd, we should not attempt to prove that it is somehow true, but we should try to understand how it ever came to seem true. This exercise of historical and psychological imagination at once enlarges the scope of our thinking, and helps us to realize how foolish many of our own cherished prejudices will seem to an age which has a different temper of mind ."

–Bertrand Russel

Abstract of the Universal Field Theory 

The light, the Universal Field and the particle-wave duality

The aim of the Universal Field Theory is to examine the true nature of the world. Therefore, it has been ready to challenge existing, non-experimentally proven theories, including length contraction and the postulate that the speed of light is independent of the motion of the light source and the frame of reference of the observer (this must not be mixed with the constant speed of light when it is measured locally, which the theory uses as a base of its reasoning) - see more about this at page three on this homepage. The result is rewarding and has created a theory without any paradoxes and with the ability to explain many so far puzzling phenomenon. 

The Universal Field Theory takes its starting point at the constant speed of light when measured locally and that time is relative, depending on the speed - both proven experimentally.

If astronauts shine with a light source inside a spacecraft the light leaves them at the speed of light in all directions, regardless of the speed of the spacecraft. If the spacecraft would travel at almost the speed of light, time inside the spacecraft, as seen by an outside observer, would move very slowly. Let us assume that the spacecraft travels so fast that when one minute passes inside the spacecraft, one year passes on the Earth. That would mean that the spacecraft travels at the speed of light minus 570 meters per second. It would also mean that the light, as seen by us on the Earth, leaves the spacecraft at only 570 meter per second - while the astronauts would experience that the same light leaves them at the normal speed of light (about 300,000,000 meter per second), since time is passing so slowly inside the spacecraft. If the astronauts would shine backwards towards the Earth, and if we would be able to follow the light leaving the spacecraft while keeping our Earth reference frame, we would experience that the light was pulled along with the spacecraft away from the Earth at the speed of the spacecraft minus 570 meters per second (the speed of light minus 570x2=c-1140 meters per second). But soon its speed, in relation to the spacecraft, would increase, and finally, when it would reach us on the Earth it would travel at its normal speed compared to us - the speed of light (it would then move away from the spacecraft at almost twice the speed of light). If the astronauts would shine towards us on the Earth while travelling towards us, the light would move only 570 meters per second faster than the spacecraft (using the reference frame on the Earth) and it would keep this speed until it reached us. 

The light can obviously change the speed in which it travels through space - as seen by an outside observer. How is this possible? 

There is only one reasonable explaination: the light travels in something, totally dependent of it. Let us call it a field - the Universal Field. 

Before the twentieth century the scientific world was convinced that there must be a field for the light, but most of today's physicists have abandoned the idea, since the existence of one seems to contradict with the theory of relativity, and because of some discouraging experiments carried out in the beginning of the twentieth century. The Universal Field Theory explains why it is still possible with a field for light. Yes, it even explains why the world is relative, and why the experiments one hundred years ago came to their (wrong) conclusions.

One can, in different ways, conclude that the Universal Field has to be symmetrical in all directions, built like an enormous spider web of armlike threads connected in junctions. Each arm should be extremly small, maybe as small as a Planck length, and the arms, as well as the field in full, must resist both compression and extension. The speed of light should corresponds to the Universal Field's maximum adaptation speed, the maximum speed the field can carry energy through itself. 

Energy (light) propagates through an arm in the Universal Field as an oscillation - wave. An arm containing an oscillation will be extended. We can compare it to how a rubber band attached between two fixed points gets extended when it creates a wave form. But, the arm resists stretching and pulls its junctions. The other arms connected to the same junctions will then slightly give in. It is thus not only the arm holding the oscillation that gets extended. The surrounding arms extend as well. However, there are arms at the junctions that do not point away from the arm with the oscillation, but rather in a similar direction. These arms will instead be compressed. The effect decreases with the distance from the arm with the oscillation. 

The oscillation propagates through the arm until it reaches the first junction, where arms point in different directions offering no obvious route forward. The oscillation therefore shakes the junction and makes the other arms attached to it vibrate - vibrations that take over some of the original oscillation’s energy. These vibrations also help the oscillation to progress - yes, they are even a prerequisite for the oscillation to proceed to a new arm; the one that most naturally takes up its remaining energy (oscillation).

The first oscillation has thus shrunk, without completely ceasing. It is still there, like a minimal particle. The surrounding vibrations exist as well and have become a carrying wave, which carries the oscillation in a direction that coincides with the direction of the original arm. We have light with a particle-wave duality.

The Universal Field as the mother of everything

An important assumption in the Universal Field Theory is that not only light but also matter exists in the Universal Field. The reasoning behind this assumption is first of all that it seems likely that light and matter, which strictly interact with each other according to the laws of nature, exist in the same medium. The assumption also makes it possible to explain several peculiarities in physics that have not earlier been totally understood and/or explained.

With the assumption follows:

1. That energy and mass are the same (and not transformable to each other), being oscillations and carrying waves in the Universal Field - see below or Chapter 2 (page two of this homepage) for further explanation of carrying waves. Mass is thus a physical quantity of energy. 

2. That light is oscillations propagating through the Universal Field with the help of carrying waves, and matter is bundled oscillations rotating (at the speed of light) in ring-like structures, which also rotate around each other in ever larger groups until they are big enough to be seen as matter by humans. Also matter moves through the Universal Field with the help of carrying waves (see below - Carrying waves and Background impact). 

These statements give that the only things existing in the Universe are indeed the Universal Field, oscillations and carrying waves, and a, probably not insignificant, amount of big and small waves travelling alone through space, like sound waves - today called gravitational waves. 

To consider this as plausible, in turn, one should be able to give reasonable explanations for all types of physical phenomenons within only the frame of the properties of the Universal Field, oscillations and carrying waves.

Oscillations, an asymmetric Universal Field and gravity

An oscillation is a wave or compression propagating through an arm. It always moves at the Universal Field's maximum adaptation speed - corresponding to the speed of light. Also when the oscillations bundle and rotate in ring-like structures they move at this speed. The oscillations pull and push surrounding arms, creating extensions and compressions and a following asymmetry in the Universal Field - the curved space described by the general theory of relativity. When an oscillation moves from one arm to another in an assymetric field, with arms pointing in somewhat twisted directions, the directional choices of the oscillation will be affected, making it move towards other energy - a change of direction we experience as gravity. 

Carrying waves and Background impact

Let us picture an extremly microscopic structure that reminds of a gyro - consisting of three bundled groups of oscillations rotating it three different dimensions. It is completely stagnant in the Universal Field, meaning that none of its oscillations move to any other arms than the ones they spin around in. Although it is impossible, of course, we imagine that we push the gyro for it to move. It resists, but we keep on pushing until it jumps, and all its oscillations move from one group of arms to another. The gyro did not move without compulsion. The oscillations in the gyro cannot jump to a new group of arms spontaneously, without anything changing, and the displacement only occurred when the surrounding arms vibrated to let it happen. These vibrations are energy, which came from the power we used to push the gyro, and they represent a wave movement. Energy is always preserved, so once the wave movement has materialized it propagates through the Universal Field and continues to carry the gyro, which moves away at a constant speed. We thus have a carrying wave for a microscopic particle, which is in line with the wave-particle concept in quantum mechanics. 

A carrying wave consists of vibrations in arms, which make a structure move. Just as for oscillations, it is energy, which in turn is equal to mass. The wave carrying the gyro is thus a mass that we can attribute to the gyro, and one can state that the gyro has increased its mass in that it has a carrying wave that moves it. If we push harder on the gyro, it will move faster, which at the same time increases the energy of the carrying wave and consequently the mass that can be attributed to the gyro.

Carrying waves thus exist for the light, for the oscillations in rotating microstructures, and for matter propagating through the universal field.

The carrying waves could be seen as "wind" in the Universal Field. Wind that, when large, makes oscillations follow it, or, when smaller, exercise pressure on its surrounding. 

We will now imagine that we are in a spacecraft that accelerates until it reaches the speed of light. All oscillations in the Universal Field always move in the field's maximum adaptation speed - corresponding to the speed of light. Already when the spacecraft stood still, all its internal oscillations and carrying waves were thus limited to the Universal Field's maximum adaptation speed. When we travel at the speed of light, the Universal Field must set the same limit. In fact, we realize that when we move at the speed of light, the Universal Field is not able to have any of the spaceship's inner structures moving at all. Nothing. All the ability of the field to adapt is already used to move the spacecraft. This is the background impact of a carrying wave. The stronger the background impact the less further ability the Universal Field has to adapt to other movements, movements that correspond to time (see below). 

Some definitions

Time corresponds to changes in positions in the Universal Field. When there are no changes in positions time stands still. 

Relative time corresponds to the speed of changes in the Universal Field. The speed of changes, in turn, depends on the speed in which the Universal Field is able to adapt to changes, something that depends on the background impact of the carrying waves where the changes occur. 

We can realize the following:

Kinetic energy is the amount of energy in the carrying wave of a structure - regardless of direction.

Momentum corresponds to the size and direction of the carrying wave of a structure - the higher speed and mass, the larger the size of the carrying wave.

Inertia corresponds to the resistance of the universal field to change the momentum, meaning its resistance to change the size and direction of a carrying wave.

Relativity and the constant speed of light

When large celestrial bodies move through the Universal Field they are carried by large carrying waves that affect the Universal Field far away. Like all other carrying waves the carrying waves of large celestrial bodys create a background impact on the Universal Field. Any light or matter existing in the same carrying waves will be equally affected by the carrying waves' background impact. 

To find the speed of light, one measures how many meters the light travels per second. In order for a clock to move one second, its internal structures must rotate a certain number of rotations. Regardless of the carrying wave, in which the light and clock exist, a certain number of rotations for the oscillations in the clocks internal structures always correspond to a certain number of crossed arms for the light's oscillations. The travel distance of light is therefore always constant over time. The speed of light (number of meters per second) is thus always constant as well. 

A carrying wave corresponds to a mass that we can attribute to whatever it carries and its strenght and background impact decreases with distance similar to the decrease of gravity with distance. Time and the speed of light is affected correspondingly, meaning time will pass faster the further away from the centre of a carrying wave, and the speed of light as seen by an outside observer will also increase the further away it gets from the centre of the carrying wave. 

The "wind" of the carrying waves affect the light just like the wind on the Earth affects things flying in the air. The "wind" of a carrying wave makes the light move along with it. If the light travels with the wind it will move faster (as seen by an outside observer) and if the light travels against the wind it will move slower. Since matter moving in the Universal Field is carried by a carrying wave there is always a "wind" around it, making the light following the same movements.

A bumble-bee moving exactly in the speed of the air (the air-wind) on the Earth, watching another bumble-bee flying in the air-wind, will consider the flying bumble-bee as flying equally fast in all directions. Exactly the same goes for an observer in the "wind" of a carrying wave, who will consider the light as moving in the speed of light in all directions.  The difference between the bumble-bee and the observer is that time moves slower the stronger the carrying wave. But since the speed of light (as seen by an outside observer) decreases in speed just like time the speed of light seen locally is always constant.


The Universal Field Theory does not specify forces, since it is a matter of definition what should be considered as one. The theory only conclude that there are some effects in the Universal Field that could be considered as forces:

1. The gravity, created by the asymmetric field and affecting the direction of oscillations and carrying waves

2. The "wind" of the carrying waves

3. Momentum - when structures move from one structure to another the momentum of the moving structures affect the carrying waves (the momentum) of all structures involved


Since the only things existing in universe are oscillations and carrying waves in the Universal Field, also antimatter must consist of oscillations and carrying waves - just like matter. At the same time antimatter seems to be complementary to matter, since matter and antimatter normally is created in pairs of matching particles. It is therefore likely that antimatter has some of its inner components rotating in the opposite direction compared to the same components in matter. This difference in rotational direction should also affect the antimatter to being easier to break, which would explain why there exist so much more matter than antimatter in universe.

Black hole

A black hole is the result of a big enough star collapsing, meaning all the star's matter collapsing into single, nun-bundled, oscillations (corresponding to light). Matter has a lot of empty space between its oscillations, while the oscillations in a black hole has very limited space between themselves. A black hole is therefore enormously more dense than any matter and it occupies a much more limiited shpere than any other celestrial body with similar mass. Its oscillations therefore also create an immense asymmetry in the Universal Field (gravity), an asymmetry that makes even escaping light turning around and going back, meaning no energy is able to leave a black hole (with one exception - see below Big Bang).  

Big Bang

Big Bang is the result of the Universal Field collapsing and losing its normal properties under the extreme pressure of a giant black hole's oscillations. When a black hole becomes big enough its oscillations exercise such an enormous pressure on the arms in the centre of the hole that they collapse into small loops or short, thick arms. The collapse thus makes the arms shorter and takes away a large part of the pressure in them at the same time as they become unable to carry oscillations. When the central arms in the black hole collapse there is a chain reaction in the Universal Field, which reminds of when you destroy a multi-storey house by blowing up its bottom floor. The arms around the collapsed arms collapse in turn, from a combination of the pressure and the violence in the change. The collapse thus spreads in an explosion-like expansion through the Universal Field, from the centre of the black hole and outwards. Eventually the collapse will end and the arms will return to normal, increasing in lenght and making the Universal Field going through an inflationary expansion in size in the middle of the giant black hole. This will make the oscillations in the (former) black hole being so far away from each other that they no longer create the earlier extreme asymmetry in the Universal Field. They will then scatter in a Big Bang.

The Universal Field Theory was first developed by Fredrik Söderqvist, who collected the work in the book The Universal Field - A theory about the Universe. The theory was formulated 2014 but Fredrik Söderqvist did not start to write the book until 2017.
