Finite Theory: Historical Milestone in Physics by Phil Bouchard is a non-fiction science and modern astrophysics book that challenges and expands on conventional theory which is widely accepted (even with multiple open questions remaining), consistent with the experimental data attributed to Einstein's General Relativity. Bouchard is able to reduce the complexity of Finite Theory and present in detail a distinct and contemporary hypothesis and conclusion to a new theory of gravity. In doing so, Bouchard makes a compelling case for further investigation into Finite Theory, having clearly explained time dilation effects, bending of light, and perihelion shifts for planets, while allowing for new properties of the invisible areas of the universe, as well as explaining peculiar properties of late-time cosmological evolution.

Delivered in a concise structure with mathematical formulas and data to back his hypothesis, Phil Bouchard puts forward the foundation for a fresh approach to gravitational physics. I'm a math guy (with a degree in Applied Mathematics), and while my dabbling in quantum physics and gravity is limited, it would be a lie to state that Bouchard's extensive equations didn't give me goosebumps. The most interesting to me was on Dynamic Speed Contraction, where Bouchard provides modified formulas and guided figures illustrating Dynamic Speed Contraction Factor vs. Distance. I think Finite Theory: Historical Milestone in Physics is a valuable read for the physics and mathematical communities, and I am glad to have had Finite Theory explained in a manner that is equally comprehensive and justifiable. Highly recommended.

Finite Theory: Historical Milestones In Physics is a work of speculative writing on science fiction and science fact themes, and was penned by author Phil Bouchard. The main focus of the book is to suggest an alternative theory to the highly popular and enduring idea of General Relativity laid down by Einstein and developed by many others around him. In this brief but very detailed volume, Bouchard explains this new gravitational theory, which would also account for the possibility of incredible technologies in the future including time travel and levitation. The work uses both real scientific research and new theories that have yet to be fully proven to explain its ideas.

Author Phil Bouchard writes with great enthusiasm for the untapped power and potential that we may find in future technologies if we are willing to accept that some of our greatest thinkers like Newton and Einstein were probably not a hundred percent correct in their original ideas. Whilst I could not pretend to fully understand all of the theory and science behind the ideas, the inclusion of references to historical milestones makes it easier to access the timeline of thinking and allows us to build up some level of knowledge before we head into Bouchard’s revolutionary new ideas and predictions for the future of gravitational power. Overall, Finite Theory: Historical Milestones In Physics is a concise but jam-packed book of exciting ideas that will be suitable for fans of physics and astrophysics who are keen to learn more on this complex topic.

The year 1915 marked a significant milestone in the scientific community as Albert Einstein published his paper on general relativity. This theory states that the past continues to exist and that the future is already there, waiting for us to experience it. This extraordinary theory has become widely accepted and has cemented Einstein’s position as one of the greatest scientific minds. However, a persistent question still exists: What if Einstein had it wrong? Phil Bouchard’s Finite Theory presents experiment-based findings to point out the flaws of general relativity. He then proposes a different gravitational theory that hinges on sound mathematical models along with time-tested mechanics.

Mr. Bouchard proposes that his suggested theory will help eliminate uncertain beliefs that have become the foundation of general relativity’s popularity. He begins with a simple dissection of special relativity that was the root of Einstein’s theory. He points to these concepts and, in layman’s terms, explains its shortcomings. He then proceeds to unfurl his arguments on general relativity and juxtaposes it with his Finite Theory. His central idea is to eliminate the concept of the fourth dimension popularized by general relativity. He postulates that popular concepts like time travel that we thought are just the stuff of science fiction are, in actuality, very feasible without the imposed limitations of time as defined by general relativity.

One does not have to be a physicist to understand the gist of Finite Theory. Graphs, equations, and visual experiments help to add weight in Phil Bouchard’s own gravitational theory. However, this little book may still appear complex to those without a Newtonian understanding of object dynamics, as Mr. Bouchard himself stipulates in the book’s preface. Still, this proposed theory cannot be ignored, and we owe it to ourselves to exercise critical thinking.
