Heim theory

Heim theory, first proposed by the late German physicist Burkhard Heim publicly in 1957, is an attempt to develop a theory of everything in theoretical physics. The theory has received little attention in the scientific literature and is regarded as being outside mainstream science[1][2][3][4] but has attracted some interest in popular and fringe media.[4][5][6]

Heim attempted to resolve incompatibilities between quantum theory and general relativity. To meet that goal, he developed a mathematical approach based on quantizing spacetime.[1] Others have attempted to apply Heim theory to nonconventional space propulsion and faster than light concepts, as well as the origin of dark matter.[7][8]

Heim has claimed that his theory yields particle masses directly from fundamental physical constants and that the resulting masses are in agreement with experiment, but this claim has not been confirmed. [8][9][2] Heim theory is formulated mathematically in six or more dimensions and uses Heim's own version of difference equations.

So far Heim has not succeeded in finding a criterion which would limit the number of excited states to those actually observed. Despite the insight gained into particle physics, the theory is not entirely equivalent to modem quantum theory. This enables [Heim] to derive logically precise statements about the process of life, the origin of paranormal phenomena, and the structure of realms far transcending the 4-dimensional world of our experience.
