"It is an honour and pleasure to be present at this historic occasion and to be presented by this magnificent gold medal, elegantly designed in classical style. The music is particularly well chosen, "Chariots of Fire", because I was interested in and practised athletics for thirty years or more. The twentieth century was an obscure time for physics, and we are now seeing a Renaissance of a simpler and more understandable natural philosophy which in particular welcomes freedom of thought of ALL kinds without the petty restrictions of received opinion. At the same time this new thought is tested meticulously for mathematical correctness and against experimental data in the manner advocated by Francis Bacon, the Elizabethan who first introduced the idea that scientific thought must always be impartially tested, Nature being the judge. "Nature shows". My own role in this Renaissance has been the completion of the great Einsteinian theory of relativity, unifying it with the other fundamental force fields of nature, and developing it where necessary. I am a chemical physicist by background, and developed this unified field theory from 2003 onwards to now. I had worked on it from 1992 onwards when I inferred the fundamental spin field of electromagnetic radiation. Gradually I discarded more and more concepts of the standard model of physics and began turly to think for myself. In developing Einstein Cartan Evans (ECE) field theory I was greatly helped by the volunteer staff of the Alpha Foundation for Advanced Study (AIAS). This staff is an example to all of enthusiasm and hard work on physics, becasue they are all part timers and give freely of their spare time from busy and responsible jobs. A great deal of impetus was given to our efforts at AIAS in late 2007, when we joined with the Santilli Galilei Association founded by Francesco Fucilla to argue against the prevailing obscurantism inherited from the twentieth century in physics. We stand at the threshold of a new University, and I am deeply honoured that this University will be named after me. My ancestor John Harvard founded Harvard University, continuing a tradition of founding institutions within the eleventh century Havard Family.
In order to clarify and simplify twentieth century physics it has been found necessary to discard several contemporary ideas and to go back to the drawing board. It was decided to base the unified field theory on a standard and well known geometry due to the great mathematician Elie Cartan. All the equations of physics were made compatible with the philosophy of relativity, and the latter unified also with quantum mechanics. There has been a remarkable interest in this theory worldwide for about five years, since its inception in Spring 2003. It is generally agreed that it is one way of acheiving the four hundred year old aim of physics - unified field theory whereby the fundamental forces of Nature are described as simply as possible in a uniform manner. Twentieth century physics has failed to do this because quantum mechanics has suffered from the obscurantism of the Copenhagen school and has remained a theory of special relativity, whereas gravitation has been based on too restrictive a geometry. Once these barriers or blocks to thinking were removed, unification became a relatively simple matter based on a relativily starightforward geometry. In contrast the standard model of physics became hugely overelaborate and lost touch with the basic necessity of testing theory against data. So concepts such as string theory, Big Bang, black holes, dark matter, and similar have had to be discarded and replaced by simpler and more powerful ideas. The response of the grass roots profession worldwide has been overwhelmingly positive, a response that can be measured in all objective detail and in real time by feedback software.
The ECE unified field theory has also allowed important insights into much needed sources of energy, on how to take electric power from spacetime itself, and we have progressed to the point at which we can begin to design devices based on these new theoretical concepts such as spin connection resonance. This is an example of how pure and applied science always interact, and of how ideas resonante from one area of physics to another. The real advances in science come from radical but well controlled new ideas. The conventional thinking is important also, but we must leap imagiatively into the future. Concepts such as string theory that cannot be tested must inevitably fail the test - they will never be able to provide new engineering, or new chemistry. This is why Bacon's ideas are perennially important. If we discard them, as in string theory, we discard natiural philosophy itself, the subject degenerates into personal points of view.
Apart form ECE we see at this Conference the recognition of other new ideas which have also proven themselves by founding new technology. Pre-eminent among these is Santilli's hadronic physics. I am very pleased and proud that four of us at AIAS have received gold medals today, and also congratulate the gold medal winners of the Santilli School. Physics should always be a polite and constructive exchange among Schools of Thought, as in Raphael's famous "School of Athens" during the High Renaissance. We are seeing here a new Rensissance as potentially long lasting as any that has gone before.
On behalf of all at AIAS, and all of us here, I express my thanks for the Renaissance patron of the arts and sciences that made all of this possible, the industrialist Francesco Fucilla, and last but not least I am deeply grateful to the British Government for the high honour of appointment to the British Civil List for services to Britain in science."
