The 'PAPERBACK' (below) has now been made available in Chinese from June 2012.

Prof. Zhang zhizhong of Beijing is publishing it as separate Chapters on his website:

The epola video also is here on YouTube:Godinci - Inertia revealed / understanding Inertia


Professor Menahem Simhony was honoured for his epola model at a presentation in Jerusalem on 10th November 2009.

Prof Simhony was accorded the honour of Prof Emeritus of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem in Oct 2006.

This site explores the work of Prof Menahem Simhony (b.1922-d.29Jun2015, pictured 2003) whose epola model of matter, space and radiation offers a leap forward for science in the twenty-first century

About the author of this site.

I have worked in chemical research and manufacturing industry until retiring from the position of Technical Manager in 1999. My interests include techniques of analytical chemistry, photochemistry and process technology but with an overriding passion dating from about 1970 for theoretical physics. The epola model provided an explanation for most if not all of the hitherto unresolved mysteries I addressed whilst trying to develop my own theory of everything.  I hope you will find time to explore and enjoy the potential of Professor Simhony's epola model for yourself.

Please feel free to contact me at rgg@epola.co.uk and discuss its implications.
