Untested “Theory” of Instantaneous (0)x+y=0

Theory of Instantaneous
{“Purpose-Action-Reaction-Result –> Redefined”}

Presently Physics Bases’ All of its Findings on the Following Concept:

(Purpose)Action +
Reaction = Result

In mathematical terms it would be stated as follows:

(Addition) 1 +
1 = 2

In common day use of mechanics it would be stated as follows:

(Electricity)Light Switch +
Open Switch = Lighted Room

Everything we do today has a purpose. The purpose defines what ...
