dc.description.abstractThis file is an electronic facsimile of Treefall as published in book form by Vantage Press, 1999. It was authored by John Hansen, who is also J. Norman Hansen and John Norman Hansen at the University of Maryland, College Park. Hansen is a biochemist, and this is written from the perspective of a biochemistry professor. A record of Hansen's scientific publications is available at: Treefall originated as a philosophy. It presents philosophical arguments with respect to the nature of Reality. It also presents novel alternatives to conventional Physics, with respect to the mechanism of translocation, along with the basis of inertia and momentum. It is argued that the apparently simple process of translocation is actually a complex chemical reaction. For translocation to occur, an object has to have an input of energy to cross a transition state, in order become the same object in a new location. In the Appendix, this process is treated as a chemical reaction that obeys traditional chemical mechanisms, which always include transition states. The logical outcome of this idea is that, by the treatment of translocation as a chemical reaction, an equation can be derived that describes the process of translocation in terms of chemical kinetics. The gratifying aspect is that this equation includes terms for inertia and momentum. Inertia and momentum have heretofore not been explainable by first principles of physics. That 'translocation as a chemical reaction' provides explanations of inertia and momentum is an argument it favor of the concept.en_US
