Today’s guest blog post is from Gavin Hamilton, author of The Nurses Are Innocent.

In 1827, botanist Robert Brown described microscopic random movement of pollen particles suspended in fluids. This random movement occurred in inert, inanimate microscopic particles suspended in fluds.

Einstein’s 1905 interpretation of Brownian Movement gave substance to the Kinetic Theory of fluids. He proposed that the particles are struck – and displaced – by fluids’ randomly moving molecules. Einstein’s version has remained essentially unchallenged by scientists worldwide.

Consider that the mass of a single molecule of fluid is to a colloidal particle like a golf ball compared to the moon.

Because of its immense size and mass, the moon, floating in a “bath” of golf balls, will show no detectable movement when struck by a single golf ball – at any velocity. Similarly, a colloidal particle floating in a bath of rapidly moving molecules, which carom off each other and off the particle, should show no motion when struck by a single molecule, regardless of its velocity.

However, our environment is bathed in multifocal, omnidirectional, multi-frequency environmental sound of many amplitudes. Environmental sound is transmitted through fluids in long-crested waves of immense numbers of molecules – crashing against colloidal particles randomly on all sides – at the speed of sound.

Therefore, environmental sound waves are the elusive cause of Brownian Movement.

Gavin Hamilton grew up in St. Thomas, Ontario, and attended UWO Medical School. After practising family medicine for nine years, he studied diagnostic radiology, receiving the fellowship diploma, then practising as a private radiologist with the rank of assistant professor until retirement. He lives in London, Ontario.
