The oldest version of the textbook I have is from 2017, containing chapters 1 and 2. So I probably began writing in 2016. I took longer breaks in-between, because ECE theory made great progress during that time and I concentrated on working for new articles with Myron.

When you want to explain a subject in an understandable way, you have to have a full understanding of the content first. Otherwise your arguments will not be convincing. I decided that the book should give a self-contained introduction to ECE theory. So I had to begin with Cartan geometry and studied the book of Carroll on differential geometry first. Although Carroll’s book is not written in a strict formal manner for mathematicians, It was still too verbose for my purpose. Therefore, I condensed from it the content that was actually important for ECE theory. This took a longer time.

For the single chapters, I went through the AIAS papers and was surprised at the number of details we had found out. For many subjects, there was a development until the final structure and content was evident. I had to evaluate that and tried to concentrate on the final results. For some subjects, for example the rotation of relativistic line elements, there was no final conclusion. I had to select a final result for each subsection and bring them together under a common view. But this was an exception.

In other cases, I found some additional results by re-thinking the problems that Maron and myself had solved in the AIAS articles. Among them are some break-throughs:

– improved unified description of fluid gravitation

– the intrinsic structure of fields (aether theory)

– self-consistent, parameter-free description of light deflection by matter

– a final consolidation of photon mass with the theory of relativity

– cosmology by aether density effects, different behaviour of matter and radiation

– new examples for the gravitomagnetic field

– new method of energy from spacetime by momentum transfer

Viewd from a retrospective, we have extended the spectrum of using methods of classical physics a lot. In particular, Lagrange theory has turned out to be applicable in fields nobody had suspected, for example cosmology. Perhaps this is the greatest break-through, althoug energy from spacetime is more practically important, as soon as viable technologies have been developed.

I am thinking on an improvement of m theory. Maybe that the velocity vector is used in the gamma factor in an uncomplete form. This would lead to a modification of the equations of motion. If this gives meaningful results, I will describe this in a new paper.

Currently I am working out the intrinsic structure of fields in more detail, as Kerry had proposed. There are some ambiguities about which I have to think further.

I hope to start Volume 2 of the textbook early next year.

### The writing of the ECE textbook

Wednesday, November 17th, 2021### Complete version of the ECE textbook published

Monday, November 1st, 2021I am happy to inform you that the first volume of the text book has been finished. The Chapters 9 and 10 have been included, as well as the corrections of John Surbat for Chapter 8. In total, the book is more than 300 pages, this is more than enough for a textbook. At the end, I give an outlook to the second volume.

I have integrated a couple of new results. You already know the intrinsic structure of fields (Section 8.4.). I have added new examples for counter gravitation (Examples 9.11, 9.12). I am planning to publish these results in extra UFT papers. Then I will start the volume on quantum mechanics. While the first volume is more for engineers and practitioners interested in physical background, vol. 2 is more intended to physicists, in particular to chemical physicists, as Myron was.

The text book is in the known place (UFT paper 438):

and the updated Maxima code is in

Have fun while reading.

### Intrinsic structure of physical fields

Monday, November 1st, 2021I have added an additional section to chapter 8 of the textbook, on the intrinsic structure of fields. This completes the section of unified fluid dynamics in a suitable way, as I think. The Résumé is:

The path of arguments is based on experimental facts. It is explained what a field really “is”. These ideas are new in the ECE context. Standard physics cannot give an answer to this question. It only knows the effects of fields and ignores this question. Some “out of the box” thinkers like Nicola Tesla and Tom Bearden have given answers to this question, but could not integrate their results into the frame of complete physics. This should have been successfully achieved through the current work.
