Verification

November 27, 2014

“Therefore UFT88 by Horst Eckardt and myself has been accepted as a classic refutation of the Einstein field equation. It corrects the second Bianchi identity by using torsion. It has been greatly developed in UFT99 up to UFT255 and in the five definitive proofs. One of these was read at Oxford yesterday. So it is clear that the post Einstein Paradigm Shift of Alwyn van der Merwe has been accepted.”

So who exactly do we telephone in order to check this ludicrous assertion? Either provide specific names, or drop this grotesque fantasy of academic acceptance.

“Many thanks for this note, Stepehen Crothers also sent me a description of Robitaille’s work some time ago. It has the same relevance as the conclusions of Gareth Evans and Trevor Morris, and as the Assis work cited UFT49, where it was shown that the big bang theory is not needed for red shifts.”

Do we really need to point out that Robitaille is a fruit-loop?

We certainly agree that his work has the same relevance as that of Evans and Morris. That is to say: zero.

On the Stability of Crackpot Groups

November 25, 2014

“I would like to make Jeff Rense aware of the proposal I made for a documentary film based on Auto One and Two and on Kerry Pendergast’s biography, with Robert Cheshire as Director or Producer or narrator. Do you think that this is a good route to go for getting in touch with the film industry in California and elsewhere in the States?”

We are always amazed at their stability, because it must be like being a member of an obscene political party such as the Nazis. A huge proportion of schoolteachers joined the Nazi party, even before the latter was in a position to force them to do so. Were they all in favour of the later actions of the party? How do individual members rationalize their implied complicity in the outrageous actions of the group? Skeptical groups tend to be unsuccessful because there is always internal dissent: each member spots the incorrect beliefs of every other member … and loudly points them out. Crackpot groups are much more stable: even if some members subscribe to clearly ludicrous beliefs, the others go along with them because they all feel themselves to be embattled by the forces of rationality. So they circle the wagons, rather than abandoning the weaklings.  What is the point of this preamble? Well, we feel sorry for Gareth ‘sewage’ Evans. He tries to play the ‘experimental scientist’ and yet he has to go along with the demented views of the Fuhrer; views which can only serve to undermine that posture. It is Rommel and Hitler all over again. Just look at Ron’s plot of today: to cozy-up to the antisemitic Jeff Rancid via Michael Jackson (who makes his more famous namesake look incredibly sane). Ron tacitly approved Jackson’s claims, which he made on the Rancid show, and that means that Sewage must also tacitly accept them. Do you remember what those claims were, Sewage? One was that the Rockefellers planted Einstein in the Swiss Patent Office in order to undermine Tesla’s perpetual-motion efforts. The other was that Cartan sent his mathematical ideas to Einstein, who then forwarded them to the Nazis; thus allowing them to build those, er, famous antigravity aircraft. So, barring claims from you to the contrary, we shall tell all-and-sundry that the Environmental Health Officer of Ceredigion County Council believes those claims about Einstein. We hear that small county councils are hotbeds of political intrigue and in-fighting. Do you really want to provide enemies with ammunition? Does your boss?

New Survey Paper on LENR

November 23, 2014

Many thanks to Steve Bannister for this paper! I look forward to the first LENR devices for homes around the world.”

Steve ‘Sub-Prime’ Bannister is shaping up to be a fully-fledged loony-tune. Just imagine: as a teaching assistant he is ideally placed to corrupt young minds. Well the paper in question  was published in Infinite Energy magazine (perpetual-motion and anti-gravity its bread-and-butter), the go-to publishing solution for flaky academics who cannot get their pseudoscience into reputable journals. The author, Nagel, is not a physicist: he is a professor of materials scientist with a very scant publication-list: He would not get tenure, or any sort of professorship, according to your rules, Ron. There is other relevant ‘work’ for you to peruse in the same issue: a George Egely* recalls the patent by Godin and Roschin for a Searl-Effect generator. You must remember the convicted criminal and investment fraudster, Searl: there is a permanent link to one of his websites on aias.us and one of his former friends started the aias.us website.  What a small despicable world you all inhabit!

*Egely is best known as a ‘pusher’ of the ‘energy wheel’: an ‘ancient’ convection-driven device which is a stock-in-trade of perpetual-motion conmen and fake psychics (not that there are any real ones).

Rule-of-Thumb Reminder

November 23, 2014

“Many thanks again to Robert Cheshire! These are of highest professional quality as usual and wordperfect. Robert Cheshire has also written and broadcast two items, one on Nicola Tesla, and shows that all contemporary power and grid systems are due to Tesla.

It is indeed an invaluable guide, for the layman, to assume that anyone who praises Tesla is either not in possession of the true facts, or is a 24ct crackpot. He was rightfully forgotten for a generation, and his current undeserved fame is due entirely to a bunch of pseudoscientist electrical engineers who founded the Tesla Society, and to the ‘opinionated but ignorant’ inhabitants of the internet who swap Tesla ‘facts’ ad nauseam.* The most influential biographies of Tesla were written by journalists, ‘science-writers’ and graphologists … and one knows what trash to expect from them. But many low-level educationalists are seduced: at least one misguided teacher wants to put a bust of Tesla in every American school. Presumably that teacher wants the pupils to become liars, cheats and crackpots. That may help them to make money, but it will be dirty money. It is safe to assume that everything that you hear about Tesla is a lie: he did not ‘invent AC’ (the silliest lie), he was not the first to transfer energy by cable, he did not invent radio, he did not invent the rotary induction motor, he did not discover X-rays, he certainly did not develop ‘free energy’, antigravity or death-rays. He did prove that the Moon does not rotate … but only to his own satisfaction.

*If one wishes to Google Tesla-related information, one should also Google ‘Telsa’ and ‘Tessler’. Yep, Tesla-fans are that stupid!

Phase Shift of pi on Reflection

November 23, 2014

This is important and needs to be worked in to the theory so far. If the incoming phase is phi then the reflected phase under certain circumstances is phi + pi.”

How amazing! Well, if this rate of discovery is maintained it will soon occur to Ron that a thin layer (of say, lithium fluoride) deposited on the surface will cause interference and produce non-reflecting lenses. Now one just needs a catchy name for this process. How about ‘blooming’ (as in blooming moron)? Oh dear, Ron, this trick was patented generations ago and is already known as blooming. Google it Ron: improve your general knowledge. Is it not strange, folks, that such a ‘genius physicist’ does not know stuff from Physics 101? One wonders how he ever earned a doctorate, on topics related to optical phenomena, without ever picking up the basics. But of course it it obvious! He was a chemist; not a physicist. Chemists are almost as notorious as electrical engineers with regard to pseudoscience. Remember Crookes, Ron? He even came up with a paranormal explanation for the operation of his own radiometer! Physicists had to explain to him how it really works: and the wrong explanation still appears in school textbooks!

Film Fun

November 23, 2014

“Dear Colleagues,
Have you any interest in making a film out of my autobiography, volumes one and two, above my coat of arms on the home page of www.aias.us?”

We strongly recommend, as producer/director, Llanelli-born actor, Keith Allen. He did an excellent job (Little Lady Fauntleroy, 2004) of accurately portraying the life of another Welsh celebrity, James Harries, the diminutive antiques-expert who once appeared – together with other prodigal geniuses – on Oprah, and later starred in Celebrity Big Brother.  As for Desert Island Discs, we imagine that Ron’s followers will express their views on this matter to the BBC. We hope that our followers will do the same. 

We Might Have Guessed …

“It is a pleasure to make the acquaintance of the Elforsk personnel, and I think that this skype conference could be an important advance, especially if UFT226 ff. could be developed with theories of the nuclear potential. Many thanks to Axel Westrenius for acting as intermediary.

Dear Axel,

Thanks for your interest and proposal. I do have a Ph.D. but not in physics – mine is in electrical engineering (electrical power systems). Feel free to set up a conference but Elforsk will not take the lead on that one.

Best Regards,

Magnus”

We have found that electrical engineers are always in the forefront of physics-related pseudoscience. One thinks immediately of Eric Laithwaite, Harold Aspden, Harold Puthoff, Thomas Valone, etc., etc. It is probably not their fault. They use much of the same nomenclature as physicists, but are not taught all of the subtleties of physics.  For example, they are always baffled by the operation of the ‘one-piece’ homopolar generator/motor because it does not obey their simplistic flux-cutting or flux-linking rules. Among those baffled by it is, of course, Siemens Stain.

Effects in Chlorophyl

November 12, 2014

Agreed, there are implications for biology and genetics. I will write up UFT277 now and proceed to UFT278 on massive photon to massive photon Compton scattering, one possible explanation. There is very intense interest on the blog today, and there was also intense interest yesterday.”

We, and one of our fans, immediately pointed all of this out days ago. Never mind, it is nice to know that Ron is willing to learn from us. After all, he always used to refer to conical sections but, following our advice and correction, he now uses the proper term, conic sections.  Well done, Ron. B+
