Meeting with Steve Bannister and Kerry Pendergast

July 14, 2017

It was very good to see Steve and Kerry again, and there were about six or seven hours of detailed discussion. I will report on these more fully tomorrow. ”

We can hardly wait. How exactly does one discuss bogus proofs of non-existent phenomena? Has the Dismal Scientist actually put his job on the line yet by writing about perpetual-motion machines anywhere … that is, anywhere where anyone sane will actually see it?

“We agreed that the Institute is going very well on all fronts, and discussed major points of progress. ”

In a sense, it has progressed. After all, it was originally housed in a flat in a communist-style block and now it is housed in a semi-detached cottage. You should show Dismal the economic rating of the area according to 192.com (‘low income, poor education’ pretty much nails it). But with no proof of any success other than that provided by your dubious scientometrics, the ‘institute’ is not going anywhere.

“I emphasized that there is nothing more objective than geometry on which to base a theory of physics, and Cartan geometry is the simplest possible geometry. This is of course an ancient point of view, held by for example Kepler and Einstein. ”

Well yes, but they understood the geometry. And what about Stevin: he had his geometrical disproof of perpetual-motion engraved on his tombstone! It was the same type of machine which you and SS have discussed as being viable. Why don’t you prove that viability … using geometry. We would love to see that proof on your gravestone.

“We discussed ways of giving lectures by skype to any audience anywhere in the world, with occasional conferences being very important. ”

Given that nobody watches your YouTube lectures, who is going to watch you on Skype? On the other hand, many people might rush to offer you the sort of ‘feedback’ via Skype which you are so careful to avoid by not allowing comments on your blog. 

“I thank Steve for his hospitality ”

You made him buy you all lunch?!

“and Kerry for giving Steve a tour of the South Wales coal field and iron works. We saw the Trevithick steam engine replica in Swansea. There has been tremendous progress by internet and e mail, silent media, and skype would add the extra dimensions of sound, video and discussion, similar to undergraduate discussions when I was a freshman at Aberystwyth. I could lecture to any audience without notes using skype, so could any other Fellow of AIAS / UPITEC. My feeling is that AIAS / UPiTEC could debate scientifically with qualified scholars anywhere in the world.”

… until they finally invent smellovision

    Ha ha! Of course, in wishing to see his gravestone, you have just uttered another “death threat” – only adding to his paranoid indignity.
