Newtonian Physics

A Galilean transformation is used to transform between the coordinates of two reference frames which differ only by constant relative motion within the constructs of Newtonian physics. These transformations together with spatial rotations and translations in space and time form the inhomogeneous Galilean group. This Encapsulated Interpretive Model (EIM) of the Universe then represents the historical importance of Sir Issac Newton to civilization, (also see Newton’s biographical folder in our User Library). Our original systems review really only considered Newtonian Physics to the extent that M1 employs it in various investigations. Usually such pursuits are scale dependent and non-relativistic. They tend to be simplex considerations.

Historical References

Students and investigators should note that it is not fair to judge any of these historical references by modern information sciences standards. That would constitute ‘moving the goal post’ and is generally prohibited by Elegant Reasonism. The idea here is to present the thinking, at the time, by that original author. Where this specifically comes into affect is commission of Langer Epistemology Errors (LEEs); which to make this point salient was first quantified by Susanne K Langer in 1948 and codified by SolREI INC. Another facet of unraveling historical points of view relative to requirements of unification are both logical and physical views in context both Systems Engineering and of LEEs. Subsequent to this contextual update in our thinking we are then required to employ critical situational awareness thinking that something may be logically correct yet remain physically different.

Richard P Feynman discusses knowing vs understanding and uses Newton’s view of gravity as compared to the view of Einstein for the same phenomenon. Unwittingly Feynman also discusses Encapsulated Interpretive Models (EIMs) usage.
