Non-mathematicians, such as Ron, might like to know that the above symbol signifies the empty set. The empty set might now well be re-defined as that which contains the success of ECE.
“The ECE theory and the work of AIAS have evolved into a new system of physics and the old system completely rejected”
Better known as the ‘shouting down a well’ system, combined with ignoring the echoes that one does not like.
“So there has been a quiet but major revolution in ideas – Alwyn van der Merwe’s post Einstein paradigm shift.”
Not ‘quiet’; non-existent. Merwe got sacked for running a crackpot-friendly journal, just as El-Naschie did.
“The old system has behaved in such a way as to hang on to power, and this is as unscientific as is possible to be. “
Not ‘hanging onto power’: keeping out the enemies of science who inhabit the lunatic fringe.
“I have been monitoring some claims of the old system, notably the wikipedia article, and there has been no interest in it for about six years. The very few referrals I see result in the reader studying ECE theory.”
What a weak ‘straw-man’ argument that is; nobody but an idiot would think that Wikipedia was an arbiter of scientific knowledge.”
“For about six years now there has been no attempt to criticise ECE theory, because Cartan geometry cannot be refuted. “
All of the mistakes were pointed out years ago, and real scientists immediately lost interest. As for the rest, ‘there are none so deaf as those who will not listen’. There is nothing wrong with Cartan geometry; the fault is in those who misuse it.
“The fact that the old system’s referees tried to block genuine science of the highest quality means that they have badly damaged science itself.”
This has been the excuse of crackpots for many generations. In the past, they would simply go away and eventually die. It is unfortunate that the internet and desk-top publishing now permits them to spew their nonsense to all and sundry. They now found their own journals (some more successfully than others) and set up imaginary ‘institutes’ in their own sitting-rooms. Given that large fractions of society are anti-science to begin with, this lunatic ‘cottage industry’ has been a disaster for rational scientific education.
“So in a historic perspective the post Einstein paradigm shift is a major paradigm shift which caused shock waves of the new but which is now accepted completely. A typical paradigm shift.”
How pathetic that forlorn belief is. Kuhn, by the way, was an idiot who picked out items to support his own prejudices. Only those who get their scientific knowledge from newspapers believe in scientific revolutions.
“If one tried to submit a paper on ECE to the old school they would still reject it, but that censorship has become irrelevant. “
Well, Duh! That would not be censorship, that would be astute editorial gate-keeping. The best is the enemy of the good … and crushes the misbegotten.
“The old system has made itself irrelevant. One can stop armies but not the march of ideas (Victor Hugo).”
The old system is more relevant than ever. Some ideas are worth stopping: Communism, National Socialism, Lysenkoism, Scientology, etc. Hugo was also not very bright; did he not realize that ‘ideas’ (especially the worst ones) have a habit of acquiring their own armies?
“It is now time to consolidate and write textbooks. Two of these are currently in preparation. Over and over again we at AIAS have detected a fundamental lack of scholarship and ability in the old system. So we do not subject ourselves to refereeing by an unscholarly system.”
Of course you don’t. You know that the tripe would not survive any sort of rational examination.
“We let the colleagues decide for themselves. The result has been tens of millions of readings of ECE in up to one hundred and seventy one countries. This is known to great accuracy by careful monitoring of feedback over more than a decade. “
All completely meaningless, because the reasons for the visits are unknown. You are pathetically proud of every direct e-mail that you receive, but there should be thousands of them. A biography of the ‘Einstein’ of ECE should attract dozens of plaudits. In fact, the independent reviewers are scathing, and the only positive review is by the author himself. That fact alone signals that the whole thing is not kosher and is perpetrated by liars and fantasists.
“The Book of Scientometrics is now well known and archived in the British Library in London from the National Library of Wales. “
Are you not aware that they trawl for, and archive, all sorts of rubbish? Take a close look at some of the other archived sites, and all pride and self-respect will evaporate. The same goes for your fellows in Marquis Who’s Who.
“This amount of interest is difficult to imagine for heavy theoretical physics, but it exists and is a great motivator of course. Congratulations once more to all the AIAS Fellows.”
There is no palpable interest.
“They work voluntarily and part time for the sake of science and not power.”
Ho Ho, as if anybody would pay them to be scientists. In fact, we are continually amazed that some of them hang onto the jobs which they do have.
“They should really be full professors with tenure, and given the chance to apply for funding. “
Hey, you should start your own university. Oh no. You tried that of course, and got shot down. Clowns really should stick to circuses.
“The old system locks up all the money, which is why it tries to propagate obsolete dogma. Nothing could possibly be further removed from natural philosophy.”
Kindly stop trolling respectable enterprises. There should be a law against people like you!
