The Olympia convention Frontiers of primary Physics was once a meeting of approximately hundred scientists who carryon their examine in conceptually very important parts of actual technological know-how (they do "fundamental physics"). such a lot of them have been physicists, but in addition historians and philosophers of technological know-how have been good represented. a tremendous fraction of the members will be thought of "heretical" simply because they disagreed with the validity of 1 or numerous basic assumptions of contemporary physics. universal to all contributors was once a good clinical point coupled with a amazing highbrow honesty: we're proud to offer to the readers this definitely exact publication. alternative routes of contemplating basic issues should still in fact be very important for the growth of technology, except one desired to admit that physics on the finish of the XXth century has already received the ultimate fact, a truly not going risk no matter if one approved the uncertain inspiration of the lifestyles of a "final" fact. The benefits of the Olympia convention may still consequently no longer be judged a priori in a favorable or in a destructive manner looking on one's refusal or attractiveness, respectively, yet thought of after studying the particular of uncomplicated ideas of up to date technological know-how, new proposals and evidences there offered. they appear vitally important to us.
