Again as Predicted

Anomalous Weight Reduction in a Gyro

January 17, 2017

Many thanks to Osamu Ide! This interesting anomalous weight reduction is equivalent to an upward force which can be described by the F sub Z force in UFT367. It is a vacuum force coming from the development of the vacuum in ECE2 fluid dynamics. My plans for UFT368 are to use the constants of motion in UFT270, in which there are some incisive graphics that can be adapted for the gyroscope. I agree that the Michelson Morley experiment is debatable. Vigier lectured on this at Vigier One, organized by Stanley Jeffers and myself in 1995 at York University, Toronto. It was the first of the Vigier Symposia.”

Here is a handy rule-of-thumb: “only an idiot weighs a moving object on a chemical balance and expects to get a rational result”. Laithwaite did not even use a good-quality balance. As Ideotic says, the replication of the Japanese result has been rather ‘unstable’; with reputable laboratories (including the one at Sevres – home of the standard kilogram) finding nothing anomalous and amateurs finding positive results which are then published in crank journals. Ron of course will say that this dichotomy is due to the dogmatists closing ranks. The fact is that the Hayasaka-Takeuchi paper should never have been published, and now looks very much like a deliberate attempt to insert pseudoscience into the mainstream scientific literature (the surviving author is linked – by co-authorship – to a member of the Japanese antigravity community.) The only reason given for carrying out the work in the first place was ostensibly  to test a theory due to Kozyrev. Although the latter had made some valid Moon observations, he was a crank in every other respect (he thought that there was a time-delay between action and reaction in Newton’s third law). His advice on gyroscope experimentation was to shake the gyroscope around as much as possible! He was also a fan of the paranormal. The Hayasaka-Takeuchi ‘anomaly’ had in fact been reported previously by them in a Japanese journal, but had gone unnoticed. The odd thing is that, in the earlier report, they had also used a modern (piezo-electric load-cell) balance. Those results did not find their way into the more notorious paper. One should not weigh a moving object using a chemical balance for the same reason that one should not measure an irregular electrical output using instruments designed to measure relatively steady quantities. It is a well-known tenet of quantum-mechanics that measurement affects the system being measured. It is less well-known that that is a feature of all measurement. Too many people treat measuring devices as if they are magic boxes. Many such devices (like chemical balances and electrical meters) are mechanical mechanisms which are subject to friction. Just as unidirectional motion can be produced by oscillation, generated within a sealed container, by exploiting asymmetrical frictional effects, so too can steady offsets from a true meter-reading be obtained. One professor of engineering boasts that he can produce steady offsets to the low side of his true weight by moving his arms while standing on bathroom scales. This professor has nevertheless now turned to the ‘dark side’ and supports the antigravity community. Presumably, one can be a ‘bigger fish’ in the lunatic fringe … as Ron knows.
