The process of field unification started in November 1991 at Cornell Theory Center when attempts were being made to explain the inverse Faraday effect, which is magnetization of matter by circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation. The outcome of these attempts was the inference of the fundamental B(3) field, later nominated several times for a Nobel Prize. This is longitudinally directed and in 1993 it was pointed out by Vigier that it proved the existence of finite photon mass and disproves the standard model entirely because the latter’s U(1) sector symmetry is refuted. So a new symmetry group was needed for electromagnetism. This led to the development of O(3) electrodynamics which allows the existence of the B(3) field. The U(1) symmetry allows only transverse modes to exist in four dimensional spacetime. A strange idea necessitated by a strange idea – the massless photon. The electromagnetic theory was gradually developed into a unified field theory which was inferred in 2003 using Cartan geometry, its two structure equations and the Cartan identity. Electromagnetism and gravitation emerged from the same geometry using the simplest possible transformation from geometry to physics. The wave equations of physics were developed from the tetrad postulate of Cartan geometry. So a unified field theory emerged very simply. The Heisenberg indeterminacy was rejected, and finite photon mass accepted. In about seven hundred papers and books since 2003, in English and Castilian (classical Spanish), the unified field theory has been applied to essentially every important aspect of natural philosophy, generating a vast interest worldwide because the ECE unified field theory as it was named, is irrefutable theoretically unless Cartan geometry is refuted. No theory of natural philosophy can be correct if it omits torsion. This is the essence of this revolutionary paradigm shift in physics.

No problem. I know how busy you are Myron, but in a paragraph could you simply sum up how you achieved unification? Not easy to say in a few words I know, and things are still developing, but I think it would be useful to have this in your own words for the historical records. So, discovery of B3 field, introduction of torsion etc. We can quote this in applications then and it can go on front page of AIAS etc.
