Extended Heim Theory, Physics of Spacetime, and Field Propulsion
In this non-mathematical overview we present a very brief introduction to some of the basic physical assumptions of Extended Heim Theory (EHT) as developed by Heim and Dröscher. We also explain the differences to the original 6-dimensional theory of Heim. These differences may be substantial, and we will show that a completely different picture of physical interactions is the result. EHT predicts six fundamental physical interactions. Heim had adopted Dröscher's idea of a 12-dimensional internal symmetry space from which the polymetric tensor, describing physical interactions, has to be constructed. Together with Dröscher, he published the book Strukturen der physikalischen Welt und ihrer nichtmateriellen Seite, Resch Verlag, 1996, Innsbruck, in which the physical consequences of this 12-dimensional internal space are discussed. Unfortunately, because of his failing health, Heim could not any more accomplish the task of rewriting his first two volumes on Elementarstrukturen der Materie, Resch Verlag, Innsbruck. The notes below are an excerpt from a forthcoming paper and are only a beginning (pdf  207kB).

March 2006: Prof. G.W. Bruhn, Dept. of Mathematics, Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, http://www.mathematik.tu-darmstadt.de/~bruhn/IGW.html
criticized that Eq. (2) in our paper AIAA 2004-3700, a4,   letter,  will lead to a flat metric. 
We have rejected his comments as being irrelevant to the physics of Heim theory, see pdf .

In the following we present  the physical basis of Heim theory in a nutshell:
  1. The overall objective of Heim theory, as developed in our papers, is to answer the central problem of physics, namely the number, nature, and origin of the fundamental interactions that do exist in Nature.

  2. To this end, we start from GR (General Relativity) and not from quantum mechanics, following an idea of Einstein as published by him in one of his last papers in 1950, Scientific American, April, Vol 180, NO 4. Heim expressed this conviction in form of a geometrization principle that should lead to the geometrization of all physical interactions. In order to achieving this goal, the proper poly-metric tensor needs to be constructed.

  3. Therefore, spacetime is assumed to be a differentiable 4-dimensional manifold, M4, as long as quantum effects are not considered. This manifold comprises a collection of points where each point is specified by a set of four real numbers and has the same local topology as R4, i.e., it is locally but not globally (as wrongly assumed by Prof. Bruhn) like R4.  This is why we refer to spacetime sometimes as R4, but the physical  meaning is always clear from the context. This is explicitly shown in  Figs. 1 and 2 on pages 3 and 4 of our paper AIAA  2005-4521, a4, letter.

Our research work on advanced propulsion systems based on field propulsion (Heim theory) was described in a popular article by New Scientist, 7-13 January 2006.
However, not everything described there should be taken literally. The theoretical work is highly speculative, and it is not sure that there are three gravitational interactions in Nature as predicted by us. On the other hand, the benefits would be enormous if six fundamental physical interactions existed in Nature.
