By coincidence the AIAS Co President Gareth Evans notified me this morning that a summer school on unified field theory was held in 2016 in which I was kindly described as the natural intellectual successor to Jean-Pierre Vigier. In a sense this is an accurate description because of the link between the B(3) field, for which I was nominated for a Nobel Prize according to the the Vigier Symposia Chairman Richard Amoroso, and photon mass, one of Vigier’s main interests. Vigier could be described as the intellectual leader of the Einstein / de Broglie School of Thought in quantum mechanics, a school which rejected the standard Copenhagen interpretation.”
Yes you are the natural successor to someone who, whatever his previous attainments, clearly ‘went peculiar’, like you, in later life and mixed with perpetual-motion and anti-gravity crackpots such as Thomas Valone and John Searl. You even have a permanent link to a Searl site on aias.us and have recommended several times that the UK government should invest in his levitating cancer-curing perpetual-motion machine. You have also noted that Valone is in Marquis (like most conniving cranks). Thomas Valone was a patent examiner until he attempted to misuse State Department property as a venue for a loony conference. One of us still has the envelope which contained an invitation to said conference. It displays a printed warning concerning the sizeable fine which can be levied for each misuse of such envelopes. Valone presumably owes the State Department a great deal of money. When the USPO tried to fire him, Valone used a ‘civil rights’ loophole and declared that his belief in perpetual-motion is a religion. He won the case! It is unclear whether he still works for the USPO. One would like to think that he was demoted to head pencil-sharpener. Here is Valone talking about his meeting Vigier and about the successes (LOL) concerning magnetic motors:
This is where they (and Searl) met,
and here is the Mr L who is mentioned in t’Hooft’s comment on Crothers:
and, finally, a group photo of the usual suspects (loonies who somehow manage to hang onto paid employment in science).
Elizabeth Rauscher, by the way, is better known in the field of telepathy and other paranormal tripe.
And, as an irrelevant aside, here is the late conman Bedini with one of his gadgets at a Coeur d’Alene conference: you know, the ones that Loony Lindstrom attends:
Bedini was certainly very clever at hiding batteries.
