The Meaning of Form in Contemporary Innovative Poetry

This research engages the lifetime of shape in modern cutting edge poetries via either an creation to the newest theories and shut readings of top North American and British cutting edge poets. The serious method derives from Robert Sheppard’s axiomatic competition that poetry is the research of complicated modern realities during the ability (meanings) of shape.

In every such cycle there is a quantum-electrodynamic event associated with the energy quantum of a pair of virtual muons but such events occur at random positions in space. The proposition now advanced is that if those two electron charges associated with the core muon form sustain a hit simultaneously in the same rhythmic period, then the muon will be conditioned for decay. By ‘hit’ it is meant that the virtual muon of opposite charge polarity is created within the space occupied by the electron charge.

If the measurement is made before the assumption is recorded then that is not regarded as proving the theory, but if the assumption is made and duly found to be consistent with later measurement that is said to prove the theory. Such is the illogical arena in which the contests between theoreticians are staged. One must, it seems, predict what is later verified by experiment in order to be applauded by acceptance of one’s theory. To explain by theory what is already known is not a respectable pursuit.

Phys. in which Einstein’s 1916 paper had appeared. It was obvious that there was concern that Gerber’s contribution had been ignored and there was then onward debate as Seelinger drew attention to a mathematical flaw in Gerber’s analysis. Oppenheim responded, stressing that the issue of finite speed was still open, but Seelinger reasserted his position to ensure that his arguments were not eroded by Oppenheim’s views. (See: Ann. d. , 52, 415; 1917: 53, 31 & 163; 1917 and 54, 38; 1917). That debate revealed the difficulties of picturing how gravitational action asserts a retarded effect, given that one can hardly expect the flow of energy to be along a pencil thin line drawn between Sun and planet and given that point above that one is not even sure where the energy that is fed to the planet is seated before it sets off on that journey.
