Some fundamental changes in understanding are required to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the universe.

**The Z _{0} Theory shall explain the following requirements:**

**Energy**

The origin of energy

Address or explain the total amount of energy in the universe.

The transfer of energy through time.

The storage of energy in time.

Details of resonance and how it relates.

Disambiguation, the recovery of energy from waves.

**Charge**

The imbalance of negative to positive electrons (charge).

Charge mechanism.

How charges exist in space.

Charge as monopoles.

How positive charges appear.

How charges can be overlaid.

Charge shielding (Faraday shield).

What happens when charges short together.

**Dipoles**

Where do opposite charges come from.

Angular velocity / diameter related to wavelength.

**Photons**

Size, shape.

The smallest or highest frequency.

The concept of quantum.

Establish photon energy to frequency mechanism.

How they are massless.

**Waves**

Why speed appears same regardless of direction measured.

**Gravity**

The underlying mechanism of gravity.

How the gravitational constant is equal regardless of mass.

The forces that drive “equivalent” gravity.

The forces of attraction and repulsion.

The alternate possibilities for redshift.

**The Z _{0} Theory should explain the following requirements:**
