# Theory for Halton Arp

Key reference is the monograph by Barry
Setterfield: *Cosmology
and the Zero Point Energy*
(Natural Philosophy Alliance Monograph series, No.1, 2013, ISBN 978-1-304-19508-1).

One of the statements in this monograph is that the rest mass of an electron has been
increasing with time, as shown in e.g. Figure 4 on page 17 and figure 8 on page 395 (linked here):
My Theory for Halton Arp
rests on a **wild hypothesis**
: the (rest) mass of atomic particles is increasing with (proper) time.

What is the truth value of such a highly speculative theory?

Time to give a little lesson in what the *scientific method* is about, especially
meant for those who think that what they think must be true, because they wishfully think so.

Let $H =$ Hypothesis, $C =$ Conclusion and let "if $H$ then $C$" be our theory, then we have the
following possibilities$^{(*)}$:

H | C | if H then C |

true | true | true |

true | false | false |

false | true | true |

false | false | true |

This means that our theory can *only* be false if the Hypothesis is true while
any of the Conclusions is false. *So it's still true if the Hypothesis is false.*
Which is pretty good :-)
