The author's article titled "Avyakta: The fabric of space" has been published on 06/01/2017 in the Prespacetime Journal (Vol 7 Issue 16).

(Prespacetime Journal (ISSN: 2153-8301), QuantumDream, Inc., P.O. Box 267, Stony Brook, NY 11790-0267, USA; a physics journal which focuses on the origin, nature and mechanism of spacetime and its possible connection to a prespacetime; and models and experimental results on elemental particles, fundamental forces including gravity and related topics.)

 

In this article a new concept, the 'Fabric of Space' is introduced to complement the Standard Model and explain gravitation. The fabric of space is termed 'Avyakta', and it is attempted to be shown that it provides substrate for all the fields including electromagnetic field, gravitational field and Higgs field. Dark matter and virtual particles gain new meaning and cosmic inflation is seen in fresh light. Convincing explanation is provided for matter/antimatter asymmetry and generations of matter. The article was written jointly by C. Radhakrishnan and his son Dr. Gopal K. R.

A popular science elaboration of this idea along with its Vedantic concept and integration was published earlier in book form titled "The Secret Behind the Universe".
