1.     Physics is first and foremost the study of objects. You cannot do Physics without an object.
             What would there be to study? What experiment could you perform in the lab without one.
             In Physics, only objects may serve as nouns. Only an object can be the subject of a sentence.
             
     2.     An object is that which has shape; space is that which doesn't. All objects have the inherent
             properties that come with shape: dimensions and size. Only objects that exist have volume
             and weight and the property we call friction; space has none of these. An object that exists
             has the ability to move and always does; movement is an inherent (and unstoppable) property
             of nature. The words object and space are antonyms.

     3.     A concept is a word that embodies or invokes two or more objects. A concept is a relation
             between objects. Thus, the definition of the word object precedes the definition of the word
             concept. The quick way to determine whether a word in the dictionary is a concept or an
             object is by determining whether it represents that which has shape. If you can't visualize it,
             if you can't draw it, the word is a concept.

     4.     An object is inherently continuous: for the purposes of Science, it is regarded to be made of
             a single piece. Mereology has no place in Science and is dismissed as religion. The only way
             to present an object in Science is to point to it and utter a sound (assign a name to it). The
             image may be an illustration, a statue, a mockup, or the real thing. After the exhibits phase,
             an object is treated as a concept for the remainder of the presentation. When comparing an
             object, relating it to other objects, or speaking of it within the context of a category (e.g., table
             as a piece of furniture) the object is now treated as a concept.

     5.    We refer to the space separating the surfaces of any two objects as distance. The distance

     6.    Location consists of the set of distances from one object to the remaining ones in the system.
     
     7.     Physics only studies objects that exist. Physics is the Science of Existence. Exist is a word
             circumscribed to objects. For the puurposes of Science, the crucial word exist is not a verb.
             It is an adjective or an adverb: its purpose is to qualify an object with respect to other objects:
             location. An object exists if it has location. The aggregate of all objects that exist is what we
             call matter. An object that doesn't exist is known as an abstract or imaginary object. It is
             typically one of two: a 2D object or one that you imagine. For the purposes of Science,
             concepts do not exist and cannot be said to exist. They lack the two necessary attributes:
             shape and location. The existence of concepts is confined exclusively to ORDINARY SPEECH.
             In Science, it is irrational to say that 'love exists' or that 'energy exists'.

     8.     Motion involves two or more locations of an object. Motion is a property circumscribed to
             objects that exist. Concepts and imaginary objects do not have the ability to move.

     9.     A scientific theory requires a hypothesis, a theory, and a conclusion.

    10.     A hypothesis is comprised of three steps or stages: the exhibits, the definitions, and the
             statement of the facts.

    11.    The exhibits phase of the scientific method involves the presentation of the objects that are to
             play a relevant role in the theory.  

    12.     A definition is a set of limitations or restrictions placed on a word. In Science, we do not
             define objects. In Science, we point to objects and define concepts.

    13.    A statement of the facts is a description of the initial scene(s). Its purpose is to introduce the
             relevant points to the jury. The prosecutor issues the statement of the facts. The jury makes
             assumptions (i.e., takes the statement of the facts at face value).

    14.    A theory is an explanation of the causes (Physics) or reasons (Philosophy) behind a
             phenomenon. A theory is a movie, the prosecutor's version of how or why something
             occurred. The theory does not contain any of the frames of the statement of the facts.
             Science deals only with theories which are rational. Science deals only with consummated
             events and phenomena. Science only deals with the past.

    15.     In Science, scientists don't prove or vote for theories. In Science, scientists don't persuade
             convince, convert, or recruit. It is in religion where they send out missionaries and gawk at
             charismatic snake oil peddlers. Opinions about which theory is correct or true are extra-
             scientific. The purpose of Science is to merely understand, not to believe. Belief, opinion,
             recruiting, etc., are the sole province of religion.

    16.    Observation, predictions, evidence, knowledge, descriptions, numbers and equations,
             developing technology, inventing gadgets, testing and experiments , are not scientific
             activities.  The puurpose of Science is not to be 'useful'. The role of a scientist is not to
             invent or develop gadgets. Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla were not scientists. They
             were inventors, technologists, developers, lab researchers, but never scientists. Physics
             only deals with objective explanations of mechanisms and causes. Therefore, the  
             language of Physics is not Mathematics because Mathematics can only describe. The
             language of Physics is ILLUSTRATION. If you cannot make a movie of your theory, you
             are not doing Physics. And certainly, you cannot make a movie with CONCEPTS such as
             energy, wave, time, plasma, electricity, mass, or field!

                   17.     In order to be rational, a theory must follow from and be founded upon the hypothesis.
        Science differs from
religion in that it does not offer supernatural or irrational explanations
        for physical phenomena.

    18.    The term supernatural refers to a theory for which the proponent presents valid exhibits
             and can make a movie of the explanation, yet the explanation cannot be imagined
             (e.g., God making matter in zero time) or violates patently obvious experience (e.g., Jesus
             walking on water).

    19.    Irrational involves any of the following:
          using definitions inconsistently (i.e., unscientifically, irrationally)
          presenting unimaginable objects (e.g., 4-D space-time, 0-D black hole,
             1-D line, tribar)
        moving a concept (e.g., transferring energy, moving the center of mass,
             carrying a force or an interaction, dilating time, contraction of length)
        morphing a concept into an object (reification) (e.g., converting love into
             heart, dot into location, space and time into a fishnet, mathematical
             wormholes into tunnels through space, ionized gas into plasma,
             disturbance into wave)
          morphing an object into a concept (e.g., dot into location, ghost or spirit
             into soul or conscience, rock into volume or mass)
          the explanation (theory) doesn't follow from the assumptions (hypothesis)

    20.    Traditional religion is for the most part supernatural. Mathematical Physics is almost entirely
    irrational. The five crucial words of Mathematical Physics -- energy, mass, field, force, time --
    are irrational and unscientific. Anyone using any of these words to make their case in Physics
    is not a scientist. The list of unscientific terms that are entirely outlawed in Physics includes:
