History Lesson

June 30, 2015

“The inverse square law appears to have been inferred intuitively or instinctively without proof by Robert Hooke (John Aubrey “Brief Lives”). Robert Hooke of Trinity College Oxford asked Newton, in a letter, about what force law (in modern terms) is needed for an elliptical orbit. According to Aubrey (who was advised in detail by Hooke), Newton at first got the answer wrong. He assumed that an inverse r law is needed whereas an inverse r squared law is needed. Hooke gave Newton the right answer much later than 1665, so Newton could not have inferred it in that year as the old story goes.”

Tsk tsk, Ron, where did you get all of that schoolteacher-level ‘boiler-plate’ history? Penderghastly? Koestler? Every specialist knows that it was Ismael Bouillaud (1605-1694) who first proposed the inverse-square law; if only to annoy Kepler, with his reciprocal law. In fact, it is all much ado about nothing; mathematical physicists know that one can assume either law in the case of simple orbits. It is just a matter of changing the frame of reference. Stop us if we are getting too technical for you.

As the bidding heats up, with WTF running neck-and-neck with LMFAO, we worry about the safety of the documents. Presumably they are kept in your walk-in fireproof vault where any insurance company would have insisted that you keep them. They are not insured? What if there is a fire, or a robbery? As you claim to live in a crime-ridden area, is it not unwise to keep such valuable items at home? It is of no use to claim that thieves would be unable to sell such a famous collection; famous works-of-art are often stolen for ransom … or to be savored in secret by an eccentric billionaire … or even to be used as ‘currency’ in big drug-deals.

More CV-Inflation

June 29, 2015

Ron recently wanted to add an MSc to Penderghastly’s qualifications, even though the latter’s own CV did not include one. Who gets an MSc, without first getting a BSc? Here is another case where Ron ‘bigged-up’ his ‘staff’. The late Alexander Labounsky was invariably described by Ron as being the ‘retired Chief Engineer of Boeing’. Labounsky however described himself as having merely been an ‘Associate Technical Fellow’ at Boeing. It goes almost without saying that he was an electrical engineer; what would pseudoscience do without electrical engineers? Why all of this inflation, Ron, are your staff not good enough for you? Perhaps if your waste paper sells on Ebay, you will be able to buy degree-mill doctorates for your more lowly staff-members. That will put them right up there with your friends, Bearden and Valone.

FOR POSTING: Section 3 of UFT318

June 28, 2015

This is an excellent section as usual and co author Horst Eckardt introduces the condition needed to obtain an Euler Bernoulli resonance structure and graphs the results from the model. This is one of the first applications of the ECE2 theory. There is only one small typo it should be “Aharonov” in the heading.”

Really? Only ‘one small typo’. It seems to us that a ‘bright schoolboy’ could spot far more than one. A pedant could spot even more. And the experienced journal-editors among us can see errors that, admittedly, 99.99% of the population would think to be correct English. Try to do better (with the English; the content is of course claptrap).

How Perpetual-Motion Scams Work

June 28, 2015

First one listens to the incredibly inept Tesla spiel,

and then one buys into the con in some way. But check the (literally) small print here,

In effect, perpetual-motion scams work in the same way that ‘alternative health’ scams work: that is, one buys the product and – if it fails to produce results (which it will fail to do) – that failure is blamed on the consumer, not on the supplier.

Ron’s Place in Society

June 28, 2015

“Device constructed for Back EMF generation, with Permanent & Electromagnetic (Motor /Generator) functions’.
This unite is modeled in the concepts and theme born of this list of individuals whom have leaded the way of this technology.
John C. BEDINI / Tom Bearden / Floyd Sweet / Gabriel Kron / Dr. T. Henry Moray /Teruo Kawai / Dr. Myron Evans / Bill Muller / Joseph Newman / John Searl / Nikola Tesla : just to name a few the list is endless yet nearly non are known in our main stream public majority community
All have produced such models or prototypes researching this technology in an equal number of differing variations, configurations and materials.”

This is from the description below a crackpot video,

It will not be evident to laymen that there is a genuine scientist there who should not be listed together with the cranks and scam-artists. That scientist is … Gabriel Kron (the loony-tunes think that his concept of ‘negative resistance’ implies energy-from-nowhere. It does not).

Dealing with the Only Civil-List Pseudoscientist … Ever

Dealing with Harassers

June 27, 2015

To Mr Byron Davies M. P. Gower It is up to the police of course to find the hate blog harassers, you have plenty of clues and leads by now and something must be done about trolls. I would like them prosectued to the full extent of the law, and probably, so does Rt. Hon. Alun Michael, a former Minister as you know.”

It is of course up to scientists, and especially physicists, to decide what is harassment and what is fair scientific comment on the activities of someone who daily brings a valued accolade, and the reputation of Welsh academia, into disrepute. We would like an inquiry to be made – by a panel of relevant academics – into whether a petition should be made to HM Queen Elizabeth to remove this honour from someone who has does nothing but bring shame upon it. 

“Ioan Richard and Phil Owen are two know harassers and are not above the law. ”

They have done their best to bring this fiasco to public attention, but are crippled by not understanding the scientific issues involved. On the other hand, one does not have to be an expert to know that perpetual-motion and antigravity are impossible and that only confidence-tricksters claim to have achieved them. Evans is associated with several of these fraudsters, and praises others. He is also on record as believing that the Bessler Wheel, perhaps the most notorious fake perpetual-motion machine in history, was a feasible device. This claim alone marks him out as being a pseudoscientist of the first water.

“Scientists worldwide have been totally ignoring the hate blog for two or three years, we know this from our famous scientometrics (UFT307 on and a book I have just published).”

Scientists have also been totally ignoring Evans and his deceptive websites. Scientometrics was established as a means of measuring the impact of a scientist’s work. Unscrupulous ‘scientists’ (usually in third-world countries) have undermined the concept by packing their papers with references to their own work. Efforts are being made to weed out such crooked activities. A notable feature of Evans’ ECE ‘work’, in particular, is that nearly 100% of references to it are made by Evans and his associates. Realizing finally how embarrassing that is, he has now invented his own form of ‘scientometrics’; a form unused by anyone else. He simply counts every visit to his blog or websites as indicating complete acceptance of his work. Even then, he has to filter-out 98% of this data because it does not fit his needs; with the visitors known to be arriving from gambling, pornographic, pseudoscientific or other dubious websites. The ‘consultations’ represented by the remaining 2% are also meaningless, because the motives of the visitors cannot be known. If several visits from different places happen to coincide, Evans then concludes that this was a ‘conference’ being held on his ‘work’.  One does not have to be a scientist to appreciate how ludicrous these claims are. Even if his personal version of scientometrics were accurate, it would not explain why everybody else in the world had spontaneously decided to stop citing his work.

“Ioan has harassed me for years in many strange ways, for example he wrote to the publishers of volume one of my autobiography, and the hate blog has e mailed everyone, including my Norman ancestor Payne de Turbeville, known as y cythrael, the devil himself, all with no effect. They bounced off the Treasury when they tried to get my Civil List Pension removed. ”

We cannot comment on the activities of Mr Richard, but we have never exploited the ‘private’ e-mail lists which Evans so freely displays on his blog; an activity which probably infringes the Data Protection Act. Nor have we ever spoken by telephone or written letters to Evans or his pseudoscientist friends. We leave it to the likes of Evans to try to use street-level harassment and scientifically irrelevant external organs to try to win a scientific argument. If he wishes to prove us wrong scientifically, all that he has to do is to present his theories for publication by a reputable scientific journal. He will not do this because he knows that the nariest expert will reject his calculations. He will claim bias, incompetence and closed-mindedness on their part. That has always been the mark of the pseudoscientist: consult the criteria established by Langmuir and many others. 

“My distant cousin Elizabeth II would not have been amused if she heard of it. ”

Leaving side the obvious fact that everybody is a ‘distant cousin’ of some celebrity, we can only say – with the greatest respect – that HM is not qualified to judge the scientific merits and has obviously been badly misinformed/misled by her advisers. Nobody who is aware of the esteem paid to this honour by previous royal benefactors and by fellow scientists, can be insensitive to the harm done by having it brandished almost daily in support of the very sort of nonsense that Faraday, in particular, despised.

“The Civil List Pension is a high honour and Crown and Parliament must not be brought into contempt. ”

That is entirely the point, but there is no contempt involved apart from that which Evans exhibits for proper scientific process, established facts and decorum. Again, we call for a panel of eminent scientists in relevant disciplines to be consulted on this important matter. We shall abide by their decision, but it is unlikely that Evans will.

“Of course no one would bother her with the rantings of a demented troll. ”

But we would. There is, for instance, a troll who frequently calls for CERN to be closed down and who insults world-famous scientists like Hawking. He has been interviewed by a rabidly anti-semitic American ‘shock-jock’ and made no effort to correct what one of his followers had claimed when interviewed previously on the same show.  The acolyte had claimed that Einstein had been established, as a tool of oil-interests, to undermine the efforts of the crackpot, Nikola Tesla. The follower, Jackson, also claimed that Einstein had supplied information to the National Socialist Party which allowed them to build antigravity aircraft. This tool of Evans is obviously demented, but we cannot accuse Evans of being similarly afflicted because he has a medical certificate. We prefer not to speculate on why a sane person needs a certificate to that effect. 

“The point is that trolls are common criminals, and are not above the law.”

The pointing out of universally accepted facts in a non-obscene, non-threatening and – indeed – humorous manner is not trolling. On the other hand, we have lost count of the number of times that Evans has intimated what various famous rugby-players and boxers would do to trolls if he were able to point them out to said sportsmen. Some people might call those ‘death threats’. 

“I have been politically critical of Ioan for years, when he committed the common assault on me I just asked him in Welsh if he was feeling well. The middle of the road seems to be the only place in which he can try to debate. He drew his mobile immediately and threatened to report me to the police because I was carrying a small walking stick which I use to fend off dogs which people never seem to be able to control around here. I have not seen him since, neither has any one else as far as I know.”

Again we cannot comment, except to point out that reasonable people who live in small villages have long since learned to ‘rub along’ together and not to make themselves obnoxious to their neighbours by, for instance, trying to ‘lord it’ over them.

“I am all in favour of getting rid of turbines and bringing employment to Mawr. I have plans to invest in the real Welsh speaking Mawr via my Newlands Family Trust.”

Does that include the £2M that you hope to get for your waste paper? It is a well-attested observation that Welshmen who make a lot of money usually leave Wales ‘on the next bus’.

“This can only happen when Ioan finally retires (he is now 71 with a bad heart) or is voted out, and when Phil Owen resigns or is politely asked to leave.”

It sounds as if you are wishing those people ill. How enlightened.

“I am a fluent Welsh speaker, was born in this house, and know the real people of Mawr better than anyone. These include real Welsh speaking coal miners. ”

And, indeed, they know you.

“Scientists worldwide will now realize that this boring hate blog is written by a few local hicks with an infinite grudge to grind.”

To our chagrin, scientists worldwide do not take any interest in this blog (which you usually claim never to read). On the bright side, this lack of interest is due entirely to the fact that they do not take any interest in your work either. That is why we do not bother to tear your mathematics apart on a daily basis. Real scientists would not need such a demonstration, and non-scientists would not understand it. You would fool many more people if you distanced yourself from clowns like Hill, Searl, Jackson, etc. We are concerned only with the damage that you do to the Civil List, and to any young students who might be misled by your example. As for being ‘local’, you yourself claimed to have tracked it to other countries.

“Their knowledge of my work is zero, unlike the rest of the world by the millions, literally. ”

With half of us being obsessively skeptical physicists, your ‘work’ is all too familiar to us. It will be a great relief when you are publicly outed as a pseudoscientist and we can get on fully with our many other interests.

We do not interest ourselves in (literally) pedestrian matters, but those who are wise in the husbandry of public money know of the concept of cost-efficiency. Perhaps if you furnished the local council with figures on the numbers of dead and injured scattered around your house yearly by traffic accidents, it might have a firmer grip on what traffic-calming measures are worthwhile. It might otherwise look as if you are trying to get special privileges for yourself by ‘lording it’.

319(1): New Methods of Counter Gravitation in ECE2

June 26, 2015

In this note it is shown that the gravitational vector potential cannot be assumed to be zero without introducing a contradiction, so the theory of gravitation is developed as in Eq. (20), the usual Newtonian potential is developed as in Eq. (28) ECE2 leads to zero gravitation under condition (30), which also gives the possibility of gravitational repulsion. ECE2 reduces to Newton under the condition (29). So ECE2 can be developed to explain all the effects usual ascribed to Einstein, plus a lot more. The next stage is to match ECE2 theory with x theory.”

Silly question perhaps, but what was wrong with the old methods? If Fortune-50 companies are supposedly already using perpetual-motion and antigravity, why ‘paint the lily’ (some people might write ‘gild the lily’ there, but we know our literature too). Surely, the existence of just one working perpetual-motion or antigravity machine would attract worldwide attention.  By the way, why do you never credit that schoolboy. Herbert, with the discovery of x-theory? And with regard to your fantasy listing, do not forget that although Ebay would want only £250 the taxman would want considerably more (less than £10000 of Ebay earnings are tax-free).

“Dear Mr. [sic] Evans,

Thank you for contacting Christie’s regarding the possible sale of your property. Our specialists have carefully reviewed the information you kindly sent to us and have requested that I share with you their response. Whilst these papers are undoubtedly of scientific and literary significance, unfortunately the collection does not fit the profile of our traditional book sales. For that reason, our specialists are not able to suggest an estimate for auction or provide other information. Our specialists advise that you might wish to contact a dealer to learn if one might be of assistance, perhaps using the website of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association:

We recognize that this may be disappointing news, and although we cannot be of assistance at this time, we hope that we may be of service to you in the future.”

Most people would recognize that as being ‘a polite brush-off’; not a ‘valuation’.

Private Memo to Siemens Stain

Subj: Re: 318(7): Tuning an On Board Electric Field for Zero or Repulsive g Forces

This seems to be a quite unsual approache to me. Normally a “test mass” is assumed not to distort the external field by its own field. If size dimensions are reversed, the “external field” is tiny and extremely altered. In our case the field of the small mass m is totally dominated by the nearly constant gravitational force of the earth. There is no field of type 1/r^2 around mass m.
I guess that your argument is that the attractive force between both masses is equal with reversed sign, so modifying the “g” of one mass should alter both forces, even if one of the g’s is tiny. This will certainly be a challenging view for physicists. I suggest making this point clear in the paper.


Hello, SS, you are quite right to question der Führer, because he is a chemist and knows little physics. Your computer-checking is quite meaningless of course because you can find only algebraic mistakes. Neither of you is able to formulate the correct physical model, and no amount of computer-checking can detect that sort of mistake. You do not believe us? Try this simple problem, which is very pertinent to your current loony exchanges: if a planet-sized spherical mass is located close to a football-sized sphere, at what point do the gravitational fields cancel? As a follow-up question, is there more than one such point? Der Führer will be unable to work it out because it is a case which is never discussed in textbooks; it took one of us the best part of an hour.

Funniest Thing Ever!!

June 24, 2015

So, Ron, you want £5M for your rubbish but do not post even a single photograph of it. You describe it as ‘new’, but it cannot be unless you have only just written and signed it: so you have already infringed Ebay rules. People will also wonder what sort of scientist-aristocrat cannot manage to compose a short description without making typographical errors. We foresee two outcomes: either it will be thought to be a joke, and derisory offers will be made, or it will be taken seriously … and still nobody will make a serious bid (Laithwaite’s original Maglev manuscript was put up for auction years ago, and never sold). How damning will a similar failure be for you? Will you drop all of your silly pretensions, and slink away? Offering free delivery is a nice touch, but what buyer would entrust £5M of their goods to ‘economy delivery’? Oh, hang on, presumably the same sort of idiot who would pay £5M, sight unseen, in the first place.  But it is just in time for the ‘silly season’. Do any of our fans out there have contacts in the media? If so, what journalist could resist covering this latest exploit of the Craigcefnparc Clown? And here is a ‘hook’ for the reader, and a potential headline:

318(7): Tuning an On Board Electric Field for Zero or Repulsive g Forces

June 24, 2015

This note shows that g forces disappear when the electric potential is tuned to condition (9), and the electric field to condition (10). A positive g can be generated by a negative spin connection and condition (12). Under these conditions, an on board electrical device would lift the vehicle off the ground. The theory can be extended to electromagnetic devices. This is a simple way of understanding how the Alex Hill counter gravitational devices could work (, These counter gravitational devices have been observed many times by guest observers to the Alex Hill laboratory in Mexico City. These equations could be used by any of readership, which runs into millions. UFT311 shows how to design a spin connection. The design problem is not simple of course, but it is known that counter gravitational devices exist and have been observed to work by independent observers. UFT311 gives great confidence in the ECE and ECE2 theories.”

So why is only the perpetual-motion scam mentioned on the website, and not the antigravity scam? Another thought occurs: if these devices are supposedly already in existence, exactly what purpose do you serve Ron? Is it not rather like providing belated theoretical back-up for television? Let us recall yet again what the nexus of all of this supposed futuristic activity looks like:

Sale by Auction of My Autograph Manuscripts

June 24, 2015

Christie’s of New York and London have recently described this collection as valuable and important work in both science and literature, and recommended its sale by auction. Instead of going through a dealer I decided to auction them myself. I will shortly look up ebay to put them up for sale by auction there, and they are being auctioned on this world famous blog. I estimate their value to be about five million pounds as a collection, judging by the value of autograph manuscripts by Civil List Pensioners”

We have been saying for a long time that the main problem with this scandal is that it is not big enough to attract public or academic censure. But given that there is  a good chance that some American might well blindly buy Ron’s tripe just because of the Civil-List Pension status mistake, such an event would finally attract the ire of every scientist in the UK. We imagine that every celebrity-academic (Hawking, Dawkins, Attenbrough, perhaps even that ex-popstar) would queue up to complain. We do not care if Ron gets the money, just so long as he no longer besmirches that accolade.

Second Reading of UFT88 at the University of Zurich

June 23, 2015

Einstein earned his doctorate at the Univeristy of Zurich under Prof. Albert Kleiner: “Eine Neue Bestimmung der Molekuldimensionen”,”  blah, blah, blah

Today one of our number was consulted, as to the state of the world, by an anonymous member of a famous and long-established international organisation. We are sure that his forthright scientific advice completely changed the direction and thinking of that organisation. The Jehovah’s Witnesses are a millenarian restorationist Christian denomination holding non-trinitarian beliefs distinct from mainstream Christianity. According to August 2014 organizational statistics published in the 2015 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses, worldwide membership exceeded 8.2 million adherents involved in evangelism, convention attendance exceeded 15 million, and annual Memorial attendance exceeded 19.9 million. Jehovah’s Witnesses are directed by the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group of elders in Brooklyn, New York, which establishes all doctrines based on its interpretations of the Bible. They prefer to use their own translation, the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, although their literature occasionally cites other translations. They believe that the destruction of the present world system at Armageddon is imminent, and that the establishment of God’s kingdom over the earth is the only solution for all problems faced by humanity. The group emerged from the Bible Student movement, founded in the late 1870s by Charles Taze Russell with the formation of Zion’s Watch Tower Tract Society, with significant organizational and doctrinal changes under the leadership of Joseph Franklin Rutherford. The name Jehovah’s witnesses was adopted in 1931 to distinguish themselves from other Bible Student groups and to symbolize a break with the legacy of Russell’s traditions. They are best known for their door-to-door preaching, distributing literature such as The Watchtower and Awake!, and refusing military service and blood transfusions. They consider the use of the name Jehovah to be vital for proper worship. They reject Trinitarianism, inherent immortality of the soul, and hell-fire, which they consider to be unscriptural doctrines. They do not observe Christmas, Easter, birthdays or other holidays and customs they consider to have pagan origins which are incompatible with Christianity. Adherents commonly refer to their body of beliefs as “the truth” and consider themselves to be “in the truth”. They consider secular society to be morally corrupt and under the influence of Satan, and most limit their social interaction with non-Witnesses. Congregational disciplinary actions include disfellowshipping, their term for formal expulsion and shunning. Baptized individuals who formally leave are considered to be disassociated and are also shunned. Disfellowshipped and disassociated individuals may eventually be reinstated if deemed repentant.

Keep on Trucking?

June 23, 2015

We were curious today to find out more concerning the ‘Angelus Device’, to which there is a link at This is difficult to do, because access is blocked by a login-page, with no registration page. There is however a telephone number via which to contact the shadowy people behind this probable health-scam. The strange thing is that this telephone number is also the contact number of a Nebraskan trucking company (3 trucks, 4 drivers), run by a Thomas Widlar. Could that be the same Widlar who used to be an AIAS staff-member? Perhaps not; after all, the old staff-list accorded him only an MS degree, while Siemens Stain once thanked a ‘Dr’* Thomas Widlar for help with his calculations. In any case, Mr Widlar seems to have fallen from grace. Even more curious is the fact that the same telephone number is linked to what might well be an attempt to rip-off Native Americans.

* On the other hand, degree ‘inflation’ is rife in the lunatic fringe. For instance, another link is to the next rubbish Vigier conference. One of the chairmen listed is Professor Peter Rowlands (Liverpool University). According to the university however he is just an honorary teaching assistant. And given his connection to Vigier, we strongly question the imputation of ‘honour’.

Many thanks for these solutions, which will be very helpful. Zero gravitation is obviously important if implemented, for example on locomotives and of course aicraft and space vehicles.”

What is going to keep the locomotive in reach of passengers, or stop it from flying into space? How is it going to propel itself if the wheels do not touch the tracks? How is it going to be steered? Newsflash Ron: they don’t have steering-wheels. Perhaps you did not know that.

Nope, the ‘P’ stands for post-graduate. But if you are going to lower standards that far (such letters are not usually appended to names in polite academic circles), why not add plain GCE as well?

318(6): Zero Gravitation from an On Board Electric Circuit

June 23, 2015

This note uses ECE2 theory to show that it is possible to design an electrical circuit to reduce to zero the gravitational force between a mass m and a mass M. The former can be a laboratory mass and the latter the mass of the earth. So gravity can be reduced to zero in ECE2 theory.”

Many years ago, a skeptical Russian professor put an electrically driven oscillator on a chemical balance and weighed it. He then switched  the oscillator on … and the weight decreased. This is a well-known effect, especially in the automobile industry, where (due to mechanical impedance, plus vibration, plus a dash of stiction) the force imposed on a car seat is often not equal to the weight of the passenger. Strangely enough, the mathematical description of these situations is of exactly the same form as yours, Ron. But it is not antigravity, Ron: the ‘oscillator’ which the Russian professor weighed was a simple … (dramatic pause) … electric bell. Incompetent experimenters (Hayasaka & Takeuchi) and loony theoreticians (Woodward) often fool themselves with regard to the interpretation of experiments and calculations. But, just in case, better nail your circuit to the table. After all, your hero, John Searl’s prototype flew off; never to be seen again and he has been begging for funds to rebuild it ever since (for some reason, we doubt his claim that he nevertheless built over 40 flying saucers for the US Air Force). No wonder that our poll says that you should not play with him.

Correcting the references of UFT311

June 22, 2015

This is an excellent paper already heavily studied, so the fact that it was not published by ACS makes little difference to its important science.”

It was not published because somebody obviously tipped-off the chemists of ACS that it was utter drivel written by a notorious pseudoscientist.

You are in a Hole, Ron: Stop Digging

June 22, 2015

“In ECE2 theory g can be reduced to zero by putting device on board an aircraft. In this case there is no gravitational force of attraction between m and M. In the Newtonian picture g can never be reduced to zero. Similarly the electrostatic force of attraction can be reduced to zero, and this again can never happen in the Coulomb law, only in ECE2. I would think of it in exactly the same terms as spin connection resonance where the gravitational or electrostatic potentials can become infinite. That again cannot happen in Newtonian and Coulombic dynamics. If there is no g, there is no g force, so things float around in a spacecraft. In that case the g is eliminated because the gravitational force is counterbalanced by the centrifugal force as you know. The gravitational field is that of the earth, and is “counterbalanced” by the mathematics of this note.”

What a fine collection of schoolboy howlers. There is no such thing as centrifugal force, Ron; it is just a trick for simplifying certain calculations. Damn that D’Alembert for confusing the simple-minded. The gravitational force on an orbiting spaceship is not negated (retaining as it does over 90% of its sea-level value); it is not even opposed by anything. The spacecraft falls towards Earth, just as the Moon has always done. But they never hit Earth. Can you see why Ron, can you? It is because their first-law ‘sideways’ movement forever causes them to miss Earth. Check out Newton’s canon thought-experiment if you cannot understand any of this. But be careful which version you read. Your hero, Koestler (strongly suspected of murder, by the way), managed to misunderstand it and put a very silly (i.e. wildly incorrect) diagram into one of his second-rate potboilers. He must have sleepwalked into that one, or perhaps it was too dark for him at noon. Would spacecraft fall to Earth if their motion were impeded in some way? No, they would move further away. They also suffer acceleration, but their speed never changes; you can take that puzzle to be your homework.  Now, about your antigravity aircraft: is it not going to be rather difficult to control? When it was still gravity-bound, the Earth was already trying to fling it from the surface, like mud from a tyre, and the atmosphere was already trying to make it float like a balloon. Without any g to protect it, these usually minor forces become the only ones and the craft will float helplessly into space. Of course, this is pure fantasy: your theory and calculations are aberrant nonsense, and there is no such thing as antigravity or perpetual motion.

Many thanks, much appreciated. I think we should implement the advice given by AIAS Co President Gareth Evans and computer simulate, design and build a zero gravitation device from the quite simple ECE2 theory.”

Oh, Ron, Ron, Ron; that is not even news. Lense and Thirring pointed out decades ago that general relativity shows how to produce levitation. Bob Forward, of Hughes Aircraft, long ago published (in a non-crank physics journal) a circuit which could ‘do the job’. To save you the trouble of finding that paper: this is what to do: get a large torus (a later British Aerospace sketch seemed to favour dimensions of some 1ft x 12ft). Then wrap 6in i.d. tubing around it in a fairly loose spiral. Now it gets slightly difficult. Procure several tons of osmium (lead and gold are not dense enough); perhaps Ceredigion County Council could get the rate-payers to fund that. After all, the fact that their science officer is immersed in antigravity research can only bring CCC fame and government approbation. Melt the osmium (you can alloy it with, say, iridium in order to lower the melting-point). Now here is where an old wartime stirrup-pump could prove to be handy, if you still have one. Get the whole crew (Sewage, Tugboat, Siemens Stain, etc.) aboard and prepare for take-off. According to Bob Forward, all that you have to do now  is to pump that liquid metal through the tubing at a rate of about 100000 times the speed of sound. Simple, eh?  Bob deduced all of that by dimensionless analysis. Have you applied it to your circuit?  It’s that c^2 factor which spoils everything.

318(4): The ECE2 Theory of Counter Gravitation

June 21, 2015

In this note it is shown that gravitation may be made to vanish entirely (Eq. (15)) under the condition (18), which can be solved numerically by computer. In the limit of Eq. (19) the condition for zero gravitation becomes Eq. (20). So in the ECE2 theory it is possible in theory to design an onboard device that reduces gravitation to zero. If this device or circuit is built, possibly along the lines of UFT311, it has obvious and major implications for the aerospace industry and aircraft fuel conservation.”

Were you not listening when AIAS ‘Fellow’ Michael Jackson went on the Rancid show and said that Cartan and Einstein had told the Nazis how to build their famous antigravity machines? Here is a reminder:

Are you calling the Nazis liars? Are you calling Ufologists liars? Are you calling Michael Jackson a liar? You certainly did nothing to correct his claims when you yourself were later interviewed by the anti-semite. That is the problem with the lunatic fringe: no consistency. We recall the poor guy who ‘proved’ the existence of tachyons by using a potted plant (no, don’t laugh, he would laugh just as loudly at you … and he holds a senior post in an American government agency). When he published the results in a loony ‘journal’, the surprise was rather undermined by the fact that the publication already carried ads for ‘tachyon blankets’ and similar crud. Did you know that, if you and all of the other pseudoscientific blowhards got together and stood in front of wind-turbines, they would become more economical?

Unprofessional Attacks on Stephen Crothers

June 19, 2015

These are unprofessional attacks on the eminent scholar Stephen Crothers and these people should not be regarded as scientific or ethical critics, they look very much like trolls.”

No, these are highly justifiable defences by professionals. These people have spent lifetimes on learning from, and adding-to, the myriad subtleties of their chosen fields. Their efforts have been acclaimed by their fellows in free scientific discussion over many years. It is Sam Spade who is the troll; someone who is totally unfitted, both intelligence-wise and psychologically for the intellectual rigors of academic life.” 

“They have been rebutted over and over again by several real scholars to the entire satisfaction of several professions, and it is easy to rebut them.”

What ‘scholars’? You, your loony friends, and the ‘awkward squad’ who can be found in the handy listings of the ‘Natural Philosophy Alliance’ or that compendious French guide to ‘dissident scientists’? 

“The scientometrics show that they have been dismissed outright by the profession. ”

Real scientometrics are based upon citations by other scientists in the open literature. Anonymous visits to websites, from unknown people for unknown reasons count as ‘scientometrics’ only in your warped imagination.

“Stephen Crothers is a former detective, well used to court procedure, so he will know that these attacks amount to aggravated harassment, a felony. ”

No, he is a former private detective; that is not the same thing at all, and is a profession which is traditionally viewed as being underhand and sleazy. 

“This is no longer a matter of scientific debate it is a matter for the law. This tiny minority of abusive bigots or zealots brings the profession in to disrepute, and this is partly why physics funding is being cut so rapidly.”

It certainly is: the sooner that the powers-that-be take a good hard look  at why a Civil-List pension was given to a nationally-embarrassing pseudoscientist, the better!

“Another problem is misuse of tenure. Once these people get tenure it is difficult to remove them so they become arrogant and removed from reality. ”

Of course, some individuals begin by being removed from reality. They then form their own ‘institute’, and give themselves tenure.

“There are many other people more worthy of tenure.”

Probably true … and it is certainly true that the list does not include you.

“Stephen Crothers himself is worthy of tenure as a full professor at a leading University ”

Oh, Ron, stop it, we are in stitches … those one-liners of yours.

“and is a Professor and Fellow of AIAS, the world’s leading small institute as measured by objective and comprehensive scientometrics (UFT307). ”

No, no and no. AIAS has no power to award any sort of meaningful title, and your previous attempt to found a university was slapped-down by the Welsh Assembly as being illegal. Fellowship of an imaginary institute is a joke and, unfortunately, the academic world does not know about AIAS. If it did, that world would politely stamp on it.

“Their dogma, if left unchallenged, would gravely damage the progress of Baconian science. Stephen will also know that repeated written abuse is a felony, it is a common assault, which if repeated becomes an aggravated assault. Many of us have witnessed abusive, wholly unprofessional, attacks on Stephen and are prepared to be witnesses in a court case, to submit affidavits and so forth.”

Good luck with any attempt to suppress non-obscene, non-threatening and entirely fact-based free speech. Sic temper tyrannis, at they say near here.

A correspondent writes:

“Moron should not quarrel with all of those in his village because his neighbours will not talk to him. This is obvious, in that nobody has told him that this very week that plans were unveiled, with his cousin the Duke of Beaufort’s approval, to enclose off all of Mynydd Gelliwastad with secure fencing. Yes Moron, to enclose off, with secure fencing, all of Mynydd Gelliwastad where you walk, behind your two up two down cottage University Science Institute. Maybe you need to call up Sian Fansi and Gething Gruffone to plant a potaoe there urgently to claim the mountain as a garden allotment for the Owing Clingdour Embassy run by Sian Fansi before Mynydd Gelliwastad is lost forever.Any thoughts on this readers and Moron? The fence is already up on the southern end – it will possibly enclose and annexe the old boundaries of the Newlands EState very soon. Ask the village Moron.”

“I don’t think that he could describe the inverse Faraday effect,”

Why not? One only has to glance at Van der Ziel et al’s 1965 paper. 

“and this type of abstraction will not get anywhere.”

It has certainly never got you anywhere, but you are not a physicist.

“This is an example of the item you sent recently on physics having deteriorated into meaningless symbolism. The cave drawings of Lascaux could do much better. Physics is a difficult subject that needs a lot of hard work and study, most people just duck the hard work and equations and switch on the media.”

Whereas you duck the hard work and (unfortunately) switch your computer on.

“Abstract symbolism is very easy to turn out without ever bothering to test it experimentally. You just make tiny adjustments like this one by Smolin.”

A true word finally. So when did you last test anything experimentally? Forcing a crackpot theory to fit pre-existing data, by careful adjustment, is just modelling and does not count as proof of that theory.

“He is part of the in crowd so has a captive media. ”

Yes, the ‘in-crowd’ which publishes – for good or ill – in leading peer-reviewed journals. Not at all like the cranks who publish in crackpot journals that have been founded just to serve the lunatic fringe. And not at all like the sort of loony who cannot even do that.

“As you know ECE is based on the inverse Faraday effect, which is why a real physicist like Vigier liked the idea of B(3). It is experimentally based.”

Real physicists do not turn up at the same conference that welcomes the likes of Searl. Whatever Vigier may have done in his youth does not mean that he might not have gone mad, or become senile, in later life. 

“I have not read a word by Smolin, and very probably vice versa.”

A very safe bet, given that nobody reads what you write.

Welcome to Alex Hill as AIAS Director

June 13, 2015

Welcome to Alex Hill as an AIAS Director! He is well known to have translated almost two hundred UFT papers and over a hundred essays into Spanish, and to have helped to typeset many UFT papers. As a result, ECE is well known throughout the Spanish speaking world in the natural sciences and engineering.”

But has he been fully vetted? You would not want the reputation (LOL) of AIAS to be sullied by association with a(nother) dubious individual (e.g. Turner-Thomas) would you? Can you really trust someone who claims to deal with Fortune 50 companies, but who operates out of a building like this:

My beautiful picture

and has a company website which receives too few visitors to rate?

But what is this?

Oh no! Could we have been wrong all along? Would financial tipsters really steer investors towards a scam?

According to one commentator,

Nano Labs was allegedly, “the former Colorado Ceramic Tile Inc, a relatively unsuccessful small business that installed, among other things, high-end ceramic bathroom tiles. The company went out of business in March and reorganized itself into “Nano Lab Corps” with about $20 thousand in asset and at the time about $240 thousand in liabilities. According to their most recent SEC filings, the company presently has no assets to speak of and is about $180 thousand in debt. Calorado Ceramic Tile Inc. had six employees. Nanolab Corps has two: Bernardo Camacho Chavarria and a Mexican chemist named Victor Manuel Castaño¬. It’s unclear whether or not either of them are actually equipped to make any sort of revolutionary gains in the field of nanotechnology (Castaño certainly has the background for it), but considering the hype page and the character of their press releases, it seems evident that they’ve given up trying to get attention from regular investors and are now trolling the sci-tech mailing lists trying to get money from highly excitable types”. 

¬ see as yet non-granted patent, WO2014070822


Well, of course tipsters would (note the handy ‘get out of jail free’ caveat at the bottom of that Yahoo announcement). Hmm, a 93% loss does not look good. On the other hand, Amazon operated ‘massively in the red’ for many  years. Look at those future projects! Note that there is a certain convergence here with Professor Fucilla’s* activities. He too claims to be able to run vehicles partly on tap-water**, and his sons allegedly got into trouble*** for ‘boiler-room’ activities. That is, the hard-selling of worthless stock. Watch this space.

Title of Arglwydd Glyn Tawe a Gw^yr (Lord of Glyn Tawe and Gower)

I decided to use this as my armigerous title because my royal line to Tewdwr Mawr (the Tudor ancestor) descends through Meurig ap Cydifor, Arglwydd Glyn Tawe, whose younger brother Gruffudd was Arglwydd Gw^yr.”

How typical of Ron to get a title ‘on-the-cheap’. Others pay for theirs:

We shall all get one of each.

Welcome to Robert Cheshire as an AIAS Director

June 13, 2015

Welcome to Robert Cheshire as an AIAS Director, the honour is mine as they say. So he joins Horst Eckardt as an AIAS Director, and Dr. Gareth Evans is also officially welcomed as co President of AIAS. All AIAS Fellows in Europe are also UPITEC Fellows in the United States. Robert Cheshire has voluntarily narrated all the hugely popular essays”

Well done, Tugboat, we certainly get a big laugh out of your attempts to pronounce Poincaré and Wiechert (did Silurian-Ron coach you?).  Good too, to see the old team back together. Remember the good old ECE Technologies Limited days, Ron,  where Sewage and Siemens Stain (SS) were also made Directors? What a pity that the company folded, after a very short time, with assets of £2. We guess that that is what happens when the aim of the company is to produce perpetual-motion and antigravity machines. Which reminds us, should not Kellum, Clifford and Amador also be made Directors of AIAS? Ah, the good old days: remember also when you, SS, Dunging-Davies and Rodrigues were all fellow Directors at Steriwave? How is the latter going? Ooh, still making money. One certainly has to hand it to Professor Fucilla; he knows what sells …

This is all good clean fun, a form of scientific pornography (one can rent Tugboat for £7/hour), hidden away from the general public (and, indeed, everybody else); letting a few perverted souls imagine that they are involved in genuine science. But give a thought to what will happen if and when this whole sorry mess is exposed by a popular book. How will Siemens AG react when investors ask why one of their employees is a leading-light in the German perpetual-motion movement (pun intended)? How will Ceredigion County Council reply when journalists ask why they employ a pseudoscientist as a science officer (one, incidentally, who often seems to text his other ’employer’ during work-time)? How will a certain Royal Society respond when asked why it insulted the memory of Civil Listee Faraday by ‘fixing’ the same accolade for an utter crackpot? Yep, there’s a storm a-comin’

Well Done!

FOR POSTING : Appointment of Dr. Gareth J. Evans as co President of AIAS.

June 11, 2015

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Gareth J. Evans as co President of AIAS. Some of his many achievements are summarized briefly in the attached and he is the author of about 130 refereed papers and books.”

And we heartily applaud this appointment; what better way to highlight a non-existent career as a chemist than to be made co-President of a non-existent institute with imaginary followers and demented Fellows. We would encourage all unemployed people, who lack any qualifications, to found their own ‘paper academy’, make themselves ‘president for life’ and put it on their CV. That will look very impressive … and nobody will check, apparently. This is also much cheaper than buying a doctorate from a degree-mill, as ‘Dr’ Bearden and ‘Dr’ Valone did. 

Again, D’Oh!

“UFT225 was sent to CERN as soon as it was posted, and immediately covered up, no reply was received.”

But your own Book One of scientometrics (aka ‘random internet noise’) shows that CERN is guilty of over 130 visits. Therefore, by your reasoning, they already know about your ‘work’ so what is the point of sending them drivel by other means? Are you not tacitly admitting that a) either the hits are meaningless or that b) every single individual (if they exist) immediately spots it for the pseudoscience that it is?  Either way, you will not get a reply; we like to think that even the cleaners at CERN would be able spot your mistakes. Hey, did you know that the LHC was overseen by an Evans, born in a Welsh valley in 1945? He originally studied chemistry, apparently did not bother to get a PhD and only had one research fellowship. That all makes your ‘record-breaking’ DSc and numerous fellowships look pretty pointless doesn’t it? True brilliance will always shine out and be rewarded. So will humbug.

Utterly Delusional

June 2, 2015

No, not entirely Ron this time. We are pushing Searl at the moment in the spirit of highlighting  ‘guilt by association’. How can anybody who believes in Searl possibly consider himself to be Nobel-prize material?

Look at this,

quite puts NASA in the shade, does it not? Just look at the company’s mission statement:

Searl Aerospace Corporation designs and manufactures commercial air and space crafts. The company also manufactures electronic and defense systems, satellite launch vehicles, and advanced information and communication systems. The company was incorporated in 2010 and is based in El Cajon, California.”

The site alone must be worth a pretty penny,


Here is Searl’s disgraced ’employee’, Anderson (see below), talking nonsense,

And here is Ron, contributing to the same midden,

Can one slip even a razor-blade between Searl and Ron? (oo-er, sounds like a death-threat)

Dumber and Dumbest

June 2, 2015

Here is Jim Carrey, fresh from (appropriately) the set of Dumb and Dumber, posing with the most notorious perpetual-motion conmen in the world. There is Searl, two rows back and right ‘above’ Carrey. The sinister person standing next to the pillar is ‘Dr’ Thomas Bearden, former AIAS Fellow and once-close collaborator of Ron. Next to Carrey is Lockerman, whom Searl has now deemed a non-person. The frightening thing is that many of these fools had genuine doctorates (albeit usually in electrical engineering) and worked for high-tech companies (including Lockheed’s missile division). We seem to recall that the guy front-left wrote a whole book, explaining how Searl’s machine works (it doesn’t) and the guy front-right claimed to be in charge of the power-supply of an entire Indian province. On the bright side, this was 20 years ago, and quite a number of them are now dead.

Denver Conference

Really? A Conference?

UFT88 Studied by a Student Conference in the University of Bonn

June 2, 2015

Over the weekend the classic UFT88 was studied by a small student conference at the University of Bonn’s student organization.”

Or did one student, sitting at a row of work-stations say, “Ich kann das nicht glauben. Was für ein Idiot! Schauen Sie sich dieses verrückte Website”, and they all did so. Why do you not ask them whether that was the case? Oh dear, you do not know who they are so you cannot know what their intentions are, and they are certainly not going to send you a copy of the ‘proceedings’.  Perhaps there is a simpler explanation for the supposed ‘conferences’. If you were a mathematician you would know that clusters of events are statistically more likely than evenly-distributed ones. That is why buses come in threes, and why groups of 18/19th-century Polish cavalrymen died in short ‘outbreaks’ of the same ‘freak’ accident.
