What made Einstein develop his Unified Field Theory?
Albert Einstein knew there was something strange about electromagnetic radiation (or light in its most general sense). It permeates the entire universe, and yet Einstein was fully aware there had to be something more to light than met the eye based on certain thought experiments he had on how light bends in a gravitational field and how light is able to move uncharged matter in experiments such as the photoelectric effect and Crookes' radiometer. Now, more than 65 years after his death, there is growing scientific support for Einstein's discovery about light and the likelihood Einstein was right about his Unified Field Theory.
If what Einstein did is correct, not only do we live in a purely electromagnetic universe, but there is a "cause and effect" relationship between all matter including light that not even quantum theory can escape, exactly as Einstein had wanted all along.
Why haven't scientists solved the problem?
There is a serious misconception from Einstein's contemporaries that his approach to a Unified Field Theory got him nowhere and that his mathematical linking of the electromagnetic and gravitational fields in his unified field equations would not explain the weak and strong nuclear forces and anything else about the quantum world. Part of the problem for this is because scientists believe the mathematics behind the unified field equations is too complex (1). Add to this the difficulty in relating the mathematics of the unified field equations with reality to help identify practical experiments to support the theory, and most scientists are of the view Einstein had been unsuccessful in his attempt. As Dr Cornelius Lanczos of the School of Theoretical Physics at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies confirms this current scientific belief when he said:
"In the meantime, modern physics continues to grow and advance without taking account of Einstein's unifying attempts and, in fact, denying even the possibility of such an attempt being successful." (2)
Mathematically, the unified field equations are indeed complex because the aim is to describe with absolute precision the infinitely sharp path taken by any charged or so-called uncharged object(s) moving through the Universe under the influence of the electromagnetic and gravitational fields. But the remarkable thing is, there is a way to understand these equation based on something in the real world we can all appreciate and in a much simpler way.
Now new evidence and a remarkably simple interpretation has come to light, quite literally, which will show that Einstein's final great theory was indeed successful, and that its implications to science are only just beginning to be realised.
Did Einstein complete his work?
In 1924, Albert Einstein completed the essential aspects of his most ambitious and complex scientific achievement of the 20th century known as the Unified Field Theory. After further refinements, the fully completed version was published in 1929 (you can download the paper from the link below, together with a simplified presentation of the theory by Professor Tullio Levi-Civita). Since then, Einstein remained confident that what he achieved was indeed correct and that all he needed was a mathematical solution derived from the unified field equations to be experimentally tested and verified to help prove his idea behind his final scientific masterpiece.
Now at last, we can understand exactly what Einstein had achieved, and how we can test the theory.

Did Einstein succeed in his work?
You be the judge as this new book explains Einstein's final great theory. It will show how all things in the universe can be explained classically using simple cause-and-effect relations using electromagnetism as the fundamental law of the universe.
