UFT88 Read at University College of Swansea

February 28, 2015

UC Swansea was founded in 1920 and is ranked 1,402 in the world by Webometrics, 350 – 400 in the world by Times Higher Education. UFT88 is a famous paper that refutes the Einsteinian general relativity directly, by refuting the second Bianchi identity as used by Einstein. The correct second Bianchi identity is given in Eq. (105) of UFT255 and reviewed in UFT281, the first chapter of “Principles of ECE Theory”. So it is clear that staff and students within the University of Wales have accepted ECE theory in line with essentially all the universities of relevance in the world.”

Does it never occur to you Ron that some of us here sometimes log-on via our university accounts? That is how we know, as an absolute certainty, that not every ‘consultation’ denotes a believer in your claptrap. This is why your ‘scientometrics’ are totally worthless.  Why do you not send an e-mail to every physics department in the world and plead with them to canvass their staff and report how many members admit to believing you? Why not also attach a copy of your famous medical certificate, just to reassure them that you are not ‘just some nutter’?

The Ancient Genealogies of Britain

February 27, 2015

The best and most accurate site which has studied thousands of genealogies and researched them exhaustively, correcting Bartrum where necessary. This is the Center for the Study of Ancient Wales in Jefferson Texas. Using this site I am able to trace the authentic pedigree of the Morgan Aubrey Family back to Beli Mawr (130 B.C.) in one line and to 285 B. C.”

We confidently expect (knowing that he has no truck with niceties concerning spear and distaff lines) that Ron will eventually trace his lineage back to Adam, just as was done with his relative Liz Tudor (viz the family-tree on display at Hatfield House).  

So How Does That Work?

University Conference on UFT213

February 26, 2015

This occurred on 24/2/15 to discuss the proofs of the antisymmetry of the Christoffel connection discussed in UFT213. The participants were: TU Berlin, Georgia Tech, Rochester Tech, University of Virginia and University of Durham. These are all world ranking universities.”

CONFERENCE (noun): a formal meeting of people with a shared interest, typically one that takes place over several days.

So how exactly does this ‘discussion’ take place? Does this also mean that buses, which notoriously arrive in groups of three (due to a well-known statistical effect), are similarly having ‘discussions’. One can forgive Ron for being fooled in this case. After all, when the phenomenon was first observed, in the horse-kick deaths of Polish cavalry officers, the Polish high-command initially attributed the coincidental deaths to disguised assassinations by enemy agents.

Ignoretur Opera

February 22, 2015

“In my Oxford days the most I ever got for a paper were about one hundred post cards for Omnia Opera 30, the rotational dynamics of water free of hydrogen bonding. I should put some of these reprint requests on the site for historical interest, they were post cards from all over the world with “Esteemed Colleague” and so on in several languages with “Avec meilleurs remercients” and “Sehr Geehrte Kollege” and so on. So I very soon exhausted my supply of offprints, about 25 free offprints.”

Did you write those postcards yourself, Ron, given that both the French and German are incorrect? It seems that the offprints mostly ended up in the bin anyway. Ah, the marvelous Opera Omnia #30. Cited only 4 times in nearly 40 years. Of these mentions, 50% were by … need we spell it out. In 1985, a Dr Conrad mentioned it …. but only en passant. In 1980, Beevers and Williams were much more effusive about it, but that was only because they were working at Ron’s old laboratory and were probably afraid to cross him. He certainly had a hand in the writing of the paper; they said so. So then, effectively only one independent and passing reference to this paper in 38 years. As we never tire of pointing out, just one work by one of our number has been cited almost 4000 times during the same period; that is what we call impressive scientometrics.  We suspect that, given enough time, we could show that this pattern of self-referencing and lack of academic influence applies to Ron’s ‘opera omnia’ as a whole.

Nescient Wits

Nothing New in “New Scientist”

February 21, 2015

The basic problem of course is lack of scholarship and literature searches, so well known facts are rediscovered over and over again and presented third or fourth hand as something new by journalists who never do a literature search and who never check the scholarship. When something really new is found it is censored, but the censorship has itself been censored.”

We cannot understand why Ron does not like New Scientist. It is by far the worst popular-science magazine in the world, due to the fact that it is run by tabloid journalists and that its scientific advisers are tenth-rate. The spirit of the magazine has always been anti-science and pro-crackpot; almost every article (and often even the covers) try to give the impression that some well-established scientific law or belief is about to be overturned. We have frequently tried to persuade the rag to take an interest in Ron, but with no luck; even New Scientist has some standards it seems. Not convinced by our assessment of the magazine? Consider this: two of its scientific advisers have received Ignobel Prizes (and that is not a good thing, apart from probably being a record), another one wrote a book claiming that an alignment of the planets would cause devastation on Earth, and a fourth wrote a book claiming that AIDS is not caused by a virus. In the guise of ‘scientific openness’, the magazine promoted the early careers of Uri Geller and Rupert ‘morphic resonance’ Sheldrake. It once announced that dowsing had been proved to work by a ‘double-blind’ experimental study.The magazine was forced to retract that claim when skeptics proved that the experiments had been performed by someone working alone!  More recently, the magazine plastered a purported antigravity machine across its cover. The article was written by Justin Mullins (author of the 42nd-street paradox [actually first noted in Munchen] article mentioned by the antipodean fool). This crackpot machine (the Emdrive) was being backed by HM Government, and received some £250000 in funding. The company currently reports a £250000 deficit. That is what happens when one goes against Newton’s third law on the word of an electrical engineer. Soon after the antigravity-cover edition, the magazine promoted the lunatic antigravity  theory of Heim; a Nazi who accidentally blew his own hands off and whose ‘work’ is usually discussed only in the lunatic fringe. The latter has been enormously aided by New Scientist over the years: who else would give public access to crackpots such as Harold ‘I verified Uri Geller’ Puthoff and George ‘LENR’ Miley?

Important Role of Dr Horst Eckardt

February 17, 2015

Fully agreed, I have been working with Horst since late 2006 and his input is of key importance. The scientometrics show that all the best in the world appreciate his work, and that of Douglas Lindstrom and all the staff of AIAS.

Yes, Horst is a great scientist. He has always been able to see the signifance of your work and adds to it with his meticulous checking and making his own contributions and predictions. He does not seek the limelight but deserves the best accolades himself. His name, like your own, will be recorded in hisrory.

Nope, Siemens Stain plays Goebbels to Ron’s Hitler and is, as subtly hinted at, a disgrace to the name of a great German company, just as Ron is an ugly stain on the list of Civil List scientists.  SS is of course a stalwart of the German perpetual-motion bund:

SS serves only to rubber-stamp Ron’s lunatic theories by involving …  gasp … computer algebra. But the latter cannot detect pseudoscientific cant and incompetence. Forget all of the ECE nonsense, and imagine Ron and SS trying to calculate the depth of a well by dropping stones and listening for the splash. Ron will think up a theory for accurately calculating the depth; he might even trust Newton for that purpose. SS then checks Ron’s calculation and declares it correct. Of course, no experiments will be performed in order to check the calculation. But then a real physicist arrives and laughs at their pathetic efforts. “You have not allowed for air resistance”, he will smirk. “You have not allowed for the time-delay due to the finite speed of sound”, he will snigger. In fact, SS, that is quite a problem: just try to come up with a closed-form solution involving time-delay.  After all, one depends upon hearing the splash in order to know the depth, but one needs to know the depth in order to calculate the delay!  That, in a nutshell of analogy, is what Ron and Siemens Stain are doing in more advanced domains: using computer algebra to validate incorrect, incompetent and insufficient mathematical models.

By the way, folks, note yet again that Evans-the-Sewage has apparently been pursuing his pseudoscientist hero-worship during work-time. Does this mean that CCC also supports Ron’s ‘great work’. We shall have to ask.

Victim of Dementia, or Plain Loony?

February 16, 2015

“My former co author and good friend Vigier (a prominent French Statesman) was not allowed to enter the United States because he was a Member of the democratic French Communist Party (about the same as a democratic Bevanite Socialist like myself in Britain). Einstein gave the post to John Wheeler, with whom I corresponded about B(3). Wheeler was very curious about B(3) and sent me an immensely long fax message from Princeton. Vigier was awarded France’s highest honour, Membership of the Legion of Honour (Legion d’Honneur). He worked with the Nobel Laureate Frederic Joliot-Curie and resigned in protest over the French atomic bomb. He later worked with the Nobel Laureate Louis de Broglie, one of the founders of the quantum theory.”

But all of that is irrelevant because he then descended into pseudoscience and ended up being given equal billing,

with your conman friend, Searl; not to mention other notorious nutters such as Valone (who managed to keep his post at the US patent office [sic] by claiming that perpetual-motion was his religion) and Dr Dr Dr Gruber (how many doctorates does one have to acquire before it actually ‘takes’). Come to think of it, it was only pseudoscience that brought you and Vigier together.

Discussion of Switch-on spike in transformers

February 16, 2015

Good idea.

Subj: Re: Switch-on spike in transformers

Dear Franklin,

I am glad that Dr. Ide’s papers can be published now. Perhaps they can be accompanied by an additional paper of Kurt’s confirmative measurements.


As we have mentioned several times in connection with the Hill con, spiky outputs are one of the favourite tricks used by free-energy crooks to fool laymen into thinking that output is greater than input. Another trick is to play around with power-factor and phase effects. The simplest trick is just to argue in terms of power rather than energy (power is not a conserved quantity). Induction effects constantly baffle non-physicists, and this probably explains why electrical engineers are disproportionately represented in the lunatic fringe. The most popular device is the Faraday homopolar generator/motor. It confuses non-physicists because it does not obey the simplistic flux-cutting and flux-linking reasoning used by electrical engineers, and some idiots claim that (because of electromagnetic hidden momentum) it does not obey Newton’s third law and therefore is a route to not only perpetual motion but also antigravity. Siemens Stain has of course written about the homopolar generator in connection with Ron’s spin-connection resonance nonsense. Another standard trick used by ‘academic’ free-energy conmen is to choose their ground very carefully. When one has a gadget that has no chance of fooling a physics conference, one simply presents it at a chemistry conference instead. Similarly, we know of a crackpot biologist who managed to get loony papers published in optics journals. On the strength of this, he eventually went on to patent (pre-Futurama) a ‘Smaser’:  a laser-like device which supposedly projected smells. No, don’t laugh at the afflicted. Of course, the patent was published, but not granted. This is a subtle distinction which is also enthusiastically exploited by conmen such as Edwin Gray … in whose footsteps Ide is plodding. 

Ron at Cornell

February 15, 2015

Is this a typical example of Ron’s success at Cornell?

This paper has been cited only twice in 22 years, and both references were by … oh, you have guessed. The funny thing is that Ron puts an entirely different spin on it. In 2007, it was:

Or perhaps it was just not as good as Ron wanted to believe. This seems to have been the pattern for all of his work: both pre- and post-breakdown..

Freedom of the Press

February 15, 2015

Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression. This right includes the right to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive or impart information and ideas using any media regardless of frontiers”. As a journalist my blog is protected by this Declaration and by the Human Rights Act in England and Wales.”

Those rights apply to us as well. Ron, and we do not promote quack cancer-cures or ‘free-energy’ scams or distort the public’s understanding of science. We are also protected against harassment by cranks who make false accusations concerning death-threats. So now you are a journalist as well, are you? Are not journalists supposed to be obsessed with the truth? How does that fit in with falsely claiming to be a Fellow of Lancaster University or claiming that your nutty theories are widely accepted? Just post your Press Card on your blog, and we shall question that particular point no further. Oh, did you mean ‘journalist’ in the sense of ‘someone who keeps a personal journal’? There you go with that convenient ambiguity again: like confusing ‘fellow and ‘Fellow’.

This is the reply from the Rt. Hon. Alun Michael, Commissioner for Police. In his opinion offences committed by trolls are in the same category as common assault, harassment and intimidation by common criminals.”

Yes, a reply from last year and pertaining to antipodean matters. Meanwhile, little is being done to curb the activities of those who seek funding online for the ‘development’ of ‘energy sources’ which cannot work. This sort of investment-money scam has been going on for a long time. The Bessler Wheel (which Ron and Siemens Stain have discussed as if it were viable) fooled contemporaries of Newton, then there was the Spence con which fooled David Brewster (he even wrote a paper about it) and the more recent and familiar cases of Bedini, Searl and Bearden. Although they cannot produce net energy, these gadgets can easily fool laymen: having a ‘100W generator’ light 5 100W bulbs simultaneously is a favorite demonstration. Garabed Giragossian fooled the US Government by using a similar (mechanical) version of this trick a century ago. However, this method of theft has reached a new nadir, with the only scientist currently receiving a Civil List Pension being enthusiastically involved in promoting such schemes. If, as he claims, he is an employee of the Queen then he is also implicating HM in criminal activities. This is not a good year for indulging in such shenanigans: Ron’s political friend may have already damaged her prospects by being associated with him: merely mentioning wind turbines on the hustings is very likely to provoke derisory comments about ‘mad scientists’ and ‘cold fusion’ (political rivals having already been briefed on these matters).

Many thanks again to Michael Jackson for the blog backup and this important information. The AIAS engineers could easily build this device and test it, then apply ECE theory to it.”

How nice it is to see Ron getting back to one of his basic obsessions: perpetual motion. The QEG is of course a scam, and takes advantage of suckers by using the new phenomenon of ‘crowd-funding’. The very fact that it is ‘based upon a Tesla patent’ should be warning enough. Tesla is now worshipped by all crackpots, and even some history books and encyclopedias are respectful. In fact, his entire career was all ‘smoke and mirrors’ and based largely on stealing patents and ‘cultivating’ journalists. The scam is run by a con-woman and conspiracy-theorist named Naima Feagin. She is the step-daughter of a Mr Robitaille. Now, that name seems very familiar. Could he be related to the other Robitaille? If so, is it not strange that anti-Big-Bang nuts like (Dr) Robitaille and Ron always start with theoretical objections (which few laymen understand) but end up involved in street-level frauds (Bearden, Searl, etc.) which anybody can understand. Ron is a lost cause, of course, but we are always concerned about Evans-the-Sewage: a worker in local government always has both office politics and real politics to worry about. What a scandal it would be if journalists learned that a council official was even indirectly linked** to an investment scam. And there is an election coming. This is all going to make for a wonderful book-chapter one day, and how nice it is of Ron to set all of the misdeeds ‘in aspic’ by archiving them on two continents. 

PS If the ‘engineers’ (LOL) of AIAS want to build a QEG, they will need to know that the genuine* plans cost $300, and ‘training’ costs $1000/h.

* Feagin/Robitaille may have stolen the plans, see:

** Oh dear, barely had we posted this, when Sewage associated himself directly with the scam by sending a QEG  link to Ron.

I just phoned Lancaster University and had a lengthy conversation and they were utterly appalled and are to investigate.

Whilst that is going on, it seems Moron is running out of people in his village to offend and quarrel with.

Here is his latest attack on his own elected representatives:-

Open Letter to The Audit Office for Wales
February 11, 2015
I tried to phone your Office but could not get through, so left a message. As can be seen on the blog of I have called for a criminal investigation of the Mawr Community Councillors from about 2005 to present following the 15th January 2015 report from your office severely criticising the Council as dysfunctional, letting down the public, failing to keep accounts and failing to pay taxes in time. In 2011 the same Council was criticised in the same way, with about sixty to seventy irregularities listed. So in four years it has done nothing, and the Audit Office and Assembly should initiate a criminal investigation. The investigation should include the County Councillor who was a Community Councillor during the era in which this malfeasance occurred. Recently half the Community Council resigned, including the County Councillor, following heavy protest against it in a public meeting. It has again been ordered by Audit Office Wales to convene a public meeting to explain itself. As Armiger and distinguished scientist I call for the resignation of all the Community Councillors and for the Council to be dissolved by the Assembly. Direct rule by the Assembly should be started and immediate measures taken to revive the Welsh language. My blog on contains numerous criticisms of the failure to keep law and order in Mawr, failures of the County Council, the Somerset Trust, and the Community Council. Failure to keep accounts has clearly been endemic for years. As Armiger I distance myself from the Community Council entirely and withdraw recognition of it. I am a fluent Welsh speaker born in Mawr, a Member of the Gentry both on merit and royal descent from the Princes of Dynevor and Deheubarth, and I am repelled by this chronic malfeasance. I cannot find any Community Councillor who was elected against opposition, they all signed on unopposed. What kind of democracy is that? The County Councillor was elected with only 20% of those entitled to vote and there have been many complaints made to me against him. I come from a hard working coal mining family of Mawr that was, and still is, honest and law abiding. We are one of the oldest Families of Mawr. The most devastating failure of all is to allow the Welsh language to decline in Mawr to the point where it is almost extinct. So I have founded The Newlands Family Trust to try to revive the language in the long to very long term. Government is not working and the People must defend and revive the language.

Invitation from Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials to Evans, M…

February 7, 2015

Dear Ms Lan Menguo,

I am honoured by this invitation.”

We are puzzled by this invitation. Why on Earth would a conference on polymers and composites be interested in the author of a paper on magnetic motors? It is true that these conferences are rag-bags of topics

 but, even so, it does not make sense. On the other hand, since 1988, there have been over 250 Chinese attempts to patent perpetual-motion machines; many of them based upon magnetism. Moreover, ‘magnetic motor’ as referred to by Ron specifically means the sort that does not require any input! (Technical note: they do not exist outside of the lunatic fringe). So why did a reputable journal like Physica B publish his paper on magnetic motors?  Because Ron said that they had been seen working. And where was that? No specific locations or names given; just a vague (and second-hand) indication of ‘online’. This presumably refers to YouTube videos of fakes such as the Searl device. The only possible solution to the puzzle is that Physica B is not a reputable journal and employs editors of the same calibre as van der Merwe. This is no surprise, given that its sister publication, Physica C, published the dubious Podkletnov ‘antigravity’ evidence that eventually cost NASA millions of dollars in futile attempts to reproduce a non-existent effect. So should Ron attend the Chinese conference, assuming that the invite is genuine and not a fake? We would welcome it: Ron is never going to get his head shot off if he does not stick it above the parapet of his cozy and meaningless scientometric ‘comfort blanket’. Get out there, Ron, let people know that you exist and what a 小丑 you are.

It looks more like a Scheiner Halo to us (with the characteristic circa 3 Moon-diameter radius) and, given the recent air temperatures reported for Wales, that would be far more likely. Meanwhile, how exactly is a gravitational effect on a spectrum not a relativistic effect?

“Oh dear more and more of the same. It is a cause for concern when each of Moron’s rants are repeatedly on the same theme, time after time, year after year. Possible a cause for concern?

So let’s look at the latest, the call for a Parlimentry enquiry for a local parish council issue in Wales, I would imagine that if this was ever of any national concern then the convention would be to raise with the County Coucil, The Welsh Assembly and even if these institutions were to take any notice or action it is hardly likley that at a time when world events are so much more important and a General Election to take place in less than 100 days that any sensible body would consider wasting time and money on this matter. One can see the lack of awareness of real world matters.While the conduct of the council is clearly dysfunctional the reality of a Public enquiry is as real as cheese on the moon.

Quoting directly from Moron’s own hand “No monoglot immigration of people unable to comprehend the Welsh language should be allowed into a Bro Iaith.” This clearly has racist overtones which may well draw some attention from the local police. The interesting thing here is that Moron is in fact condeming himself with his racist jibe. CCP as a village has over the years welcomed many people from different countries Africa, USA, Ukriane, Poland to mention some and there has always been an accpetance. However the facts are that Moron himself has imported more non Welsh speaking spouses than anyone else ( from USA and Latvia) who inthemselves were and are decent people but somehow attracted to Moron. So he again shoots himslef in the foot.

, “and indiscriminate destruction of historic houses, chapels and similar prohibited by law” Cleary in the former he is referring to number 48 (next door) which has been purchased by a local couple who are entitiled to make their own modifications being the legal owners, this is not destruction but presevation and development.

As for the chapels both Pantycrwys and Elim chapels have in the last few years undergone ongoing maintenance and some modernisation of facilities, Moron’s perpetual absence of attendance and no involvement in both chaplesare displayed by his ignorant and factually incorrect statements. One get the feeling that as Moron points the finger at others there are always three of his own fingers pointing back at himself

Assaulted twice – really means that someone told him what they thought of him after having their names published on his blog without Moron first having the decency to approach these people to try and resolve an issue (which was non of his concen) but then he has no decency.

His obsession with the Local County Councillor is another oft repeated rant (like a stuck record) this person has served the local Mawr communty for neatly forty years and brought benefit to the area and held the post of Lord Mayor. Both complaints by Moron to the Local Government Ombudsman about the councillor have been dismissed with no case to answer 0 gaain repeated aactivities with no factual basis and therefore dismissed

His tactics are those of the cyber bully venting his personal vendetta on decent people going about their own lawful business. Of course being a bully he does not allow open debate on his blog ….. speaks for itself”

Lobby Lud Competition

For the foreseeable future, a ‘mystery man’ will be wandering around Craigcefnparc claiming to be a world-renowned scientist even though he has never been able to hold down a scientific job for any length of time, cannot get published in any reputable journal, consorts only with crackpots, writes books and papers which nobody cites and believes in perpetual motion and antigravity. Obtain a printout of the first page of any ‘scientific’ paper which shows HM Treasury as the author’s affiliation, brandish it in front of the mystery man’s face and state firmly, “you are Lobby Lud, and I claim my prize”. Good Luck.

Still Catching Up?

“I think that these are very important results, which already give most of the results I suggested in Sections 1 and 2. These results by Dr. Horst Eckardt are full of interest and should be studied carefully by the readership interested in really new physics. Among the most important results is that superluminal effects are possible in ordinary absorption, and that the photon mass approaches the mass of the electron.”

Really new physics? It has been known for years that shaped pulses can appear to travel faster than light. There is even a simple electrical circuit which can produce the same effect. But Ron would not know this; not being a physicist, not knowing any physicists and studiously avoiding the physics literature (except when he can misuse it). Of course, special relativity is not disproved in any way by the above results because information is not transferred faster than light in a vacuum during the demonstrations. Nevertheless, such experiments are a boon to members of the anti-Einstein lunatic fringe. As for the photon having a rest mass … Ho, Ho, Ho.
