## Welcome to the Reciprocal System of theory

This site is dedicated to Dewey B. Larson's *Reciprocal System of physical theory*, a "theory of everything" that is based on the concept of *motion*, rather than *matter*. With only two, fundamental postulates, Larson was able to construct a theoretical universe based on just the inverse relation between *space *and *time*, that he called "motion." (It has nothing to do with something moving--"motion" is just a ratio between space and time that causes change.)

Larson's universe, referred to as the *Universe of Motion*, has some different premises than conventional theory:

- Because mathematical relations are based on the multiplicative inverse (not the additive inverse), the condition of rest is
*unity*--not zero. Larson calls this motion the*natural datum*, and is the speed of light. In Larson's universe, change is measured as a displacement from unity (the speed of light). A simple analogy to understand this concept is the see-saw, where the fulcrum is unity and distances are measured outward from the center, towards the far edges. Conventional science starts at the edges, measuring towards the center. - Because of this inverse, see-saw relationship of space and time, Larson's universe also contains two "halves" that he calls
*sectors*. The first is the*material sector*, the one of our everyday experience, consisting of 3-dimensional space and*clock time*. Because of the reciprocal relation flipping across unity, he discovered the*cosmic sector*, the realm of*3-dimensional time*and*clock space*. These two halves of the universe sit in opposition to each other, and are connected through his concept of*motion*.

As a result of this structure, the Universe of Motion tends to look inside-out to those with a conventional, scientific background--whom are usually the first to ask, "How can you have motion, without something moving?" Larson describes this as the "actors on the stage" approach, where you have things in a setting, and the two are entirely different from each other. Conventional science has "atoms" playing parts on the space/time stage of the Universe. In the Reciprocal System, however, the actors and stage are the same stuff--motion--acting in relative relation to each other. As such, the only fixed reference in a universe of motion is a speed--the speed of light, which Larson refers to as the "progression of the natural reference system."
