Target Audience: Anyone who seeks to understand the world, such as philosophers, physics, chemists, medics and physicians, biologists, political researches, scientific journalists, public interested in ideas dealing with worldviews.

We are familiar with the existing views of the world of today, e.g. the theory of quantum, the theory of relativity, the table of elements, the standard model, different ideologies and religions. The world is challenged by severe problems within societies as well as within science, e.g. nuclear weapons, population growth, refugee flows, climate change, starvation and diseases within societies; how to unite the theory of relativity and the theory of quantum physics, the too complex standard model, the too static table of elements and the too simplistic theory of evolution within science.

Guided by The Principle of Relations, an alternative definition of the numbers 0 and 1 emerged, differently than those made by Gottlob Frege and Bertrand Russell – the foundation of arithmetic breaks down and collapses. So, the need to create a new logic occurred and it is called the logic of relations. Applying this new logic to phenomena such as gravitation and energy and theories of relativity and quantum new perspectives arise. Even the foundation of chemistry, medicine, biology and politics break down and get new perspectives. Concepts and phenomena such as random, determination, DNA, black holes, ATP synthase, equilibrium and cancer also get new explanations.

It is very dramatic!

Inspired by persons such as Aristotle, Spinoza, Newton, Darwin, Einstein and Wittgenstein, the author has formulated a possible new paradigm and new worldview. Based on one single postulate a principle and a theory have been built understanding reality from a new perspective.

So, what has the author done?

One fundamental postulate – Nothing exists in isolation, i.e., everything exists in relations – guides the expedition in reality together with the formula X = aRb.
One derivation is this equation, which unites relativity and quantum:

X = a (Ψ(x, t) = p1-n) b

It is a captivating journey.

In this volume new answers to old questions are presented, e.g. how the role of transformers replaces black holes, ATP synthase, the photoelectric effect and one equation that unites relativity and quantum. At this point in time there is a need to create the next fundamental paradigm for the sciences of logic, physics, chemistry, medicine, biology and politics. A change in perspective is severe and can lead to confusion, anxiety and existential crises. Trusting Soren Kierkegaard’s view of anxiety might be a clue: “An adventure that every human being has to live through, learning to be anxious so as not to be ruined either by never having been in anxiety or by sinking into it. Whoever has learned to be anxious in the right way has learned the ultimate.”

After dealing with objects and theories for different aspects of reality the author has learned to be anxious in the right way and after a long, tough and painstaking process over many years the author created Reality and the Paradigm of Relations. Whether you’re ready for a new perspective on the world or not, this book will provoke your brain into re-examining everything you think you know about reality.

“Dr. Thomas Nordström presents in the Reality and the Paradigm of Relations book a new and revolutionizing view on the way we think the world. The thesis and its principle give a quite different view of reality than established theories. With his book, Nordström challenges the existing perception of the world, especially Nordström’s dispute of Einstein’s equation for the speed of light deserves special attention for its consequences for much of current relational theory. In all, Nordström explains the world through his Paradigm of Relations with concrete examples often missed in contemporary philosophy. Whether you’re ready for a new perspective on the world or not, this book will provoke your brain into re-examining everything you think you know about reality.” – Victor Stampe, BA, MA, Stig Svensson, M.
