Steve Crothers’ chapter 11 of PECE2

August 23, 2017

I agree with Stephen Crothers, ‘t Hooft in my opinion is a mediocrity.”

Because, of course, poorly controlled demonstrations using a smart-phone far outweigh years of state-of-the-art photometry.  Just as the opinions of crackpots outweigh those of Nobel laureates … in your fantasy-world.

Final version of PECE2 book

August 23, 2017

Agreed with Doug, the typesetting is highly accurate and it is a fine production. UFT354 is currently the most read paper of the ECE2 series, on the effect of torsion on the relation between the metric and Christoffel symbol, and proving that the torsion tensor must be totally antisymmetric. This was the essence of Doug’s contribution. It is very important. Torsion completely refutes Einsteinian general relativity.”

‘Highly accurate’? Then what’s this in the caption to Figure 11.11? Oh, ‘3-dimentional’. If you want to know where the other errors are, in text and equations, you will have to beg.

Myron’s Wolf nomination

August 22, 2017

I will follow up tomorrow with a recorded delivery airmail to the Wolf Foundation. This document can form the basis for many future nominations with minimal effort by the colleagues. All this is a challenge to the power structure of the standard model. If they just arbitrarily ignore or reject some sincere colleagues, they will lose credibility in the way Wikipedia has lost credibility. Horst is an artist and could prepare an excellent letterhead. He can combine it with my coat of arms and armorial badge.”

Are you all dumb, deaf and blind; not to say daft?

The Wolf Prize Committee sends invitations only to those whom it deems sufficiently exalted to nominate worthy candidates for the prize.

Sewage has not been invited to nominate as he is very very far from being Wolf-Prize nominator-material. 

In any case, Ron is very very very  … very very far from being Wolf Prize-winner material.

Even if those were not high enough barriers to surmount, the Committee would take a very dim view of a gang of loons, locked into a shared delusion, who conspired to make it appear that they were all independent. How would the Committee find out? Hmm, how would did it find out?

FOR POSTING AS UFT366: Final version of PECE2 book

August 21, 2017

Many thanks to all concerned! The final monograph is a significant advance in knowledge and is a challenge to many aspects of the standard model of physics. Particular thanks are due to Douglas Lindstrom, Robert Cheshire, Russ Davis and Steve Crothers for helping to fund the production. There is an important chapter ten by Ulrich Bruchholz on his theory of elementary particles, a theory that is able to calculate elementary particle masses where the standard model fails, and a landmark chapter eleven by Stephen Crothers on the refutation of the fundamentals of Big Bang and black hole theory, combined with criticisms of the Planck theory. This chapter complements criticisms of the Planck theory in the Evans / Morris papers on www.aias.us and www.upitec.org .We must question in order that we may understand. Finally the book was collated, edited, and mainly funded by Dr. Horst Eckardt, who has made many fundamental contributions of his own in the last twelve years or so.”

Hmm, all of those people involved; one of whom seems to do nothing but run an equation-checker, and yet this rag-bag of loony theories still contains spelling errors. Why is it that none of you can be bothered to run a spell-checker over the text?

FOR POSTNG: Articles on Dissemin

August 22, 2017

There appear to be over a hundred articles of my co authors and myself on Dissemin. My total output is over two thousand items (see www.aias.us and www.upitec.org) . I will register and start to upload some more articles and books on Dissemin, and strongly encourage all the AIAS / UPITEC staff to do the same. The Wikipedia article to which you refer has been obsolete for over a decade. Some commentary published by Wikipedia uses terms such as “crackpot”. As a result the article you mention is not regarded as meaningful science by the professional community worldwide. It is my duty to advise that it is a criminal offence in the law of Wales and England (Malicious Communications Act) to describe people in terms that are grossly offensive. My staff and I find the tem “crackpot” to be grossly offensive and damaging. Accordingly it is requested that Wikipedia remove this article. It has already removed an article about me that completely distorted my career. I also request that Wikipedia post my true CV, which is attached. To date it has automatically censored attempts to put the record straight, and this is in breach of its policy of neutrality. So I can upload this CV on to Dissemin if that is allowed.”

Ask 1000 people, who know nothing of science, what they would call someone who believes that he can conjure energy out of thin air, who believes that spinning an object is the key to antigravity and who backs quack cancer-cures, and a very large percentage would certainly come up spontaneously with the term ‘crackpot’. A few might want further details, “is he qualified, does he work as a scientist, does he have evidence, does he publish on the subject, does he have followers?” Well yes, but he has no qualifications in mathematics or physics, he hasn’t worked since the breakdown, the evidence all comes from cranks (some with criminal records for energy-related fraud), he now  ‘publishes’ only on his own website and his followers include someone who claims that Einstein was installed (by ‘Big Oil’) in the Berne Patent Office in order to counter Tesla’s free-energy work.  The only detail likely to elicit sympathy would be the mention of ‘breakdown’. That would certainly rebound on the person conducting the ‘vox pop‘, “well that explains everything else, leave the poor guy alone. Is he receiving ‘care in the community'”. Not really; in fact he thinks that he is the most important person in that community.  Interviewee sighs, shakes head, walks on. Look you Ron, don’t shoot the messenger.

Yes I agree, the colour graphics are essential because they bring the mathematics and physics vividly alive.”

… and keep vanity-publishers in profit! Seriously though, who is going to pay a single cent for rubbish that can be read for free?

Wide Screen and Computer System

August 19, 2017

Many thanks to Steve Dewitt for setting up a wide screen on my work computer. This makes it much easier to read the statistics, and programmes such as “Civilization” can be seen in HD on youtube. I read this book directly after graduation in 1971. ”

Hey Ron, why not watch this enlightening YouTube video about your friend, John Searl. You remember him, don’t you? There is a permanent link to his scams at aias.us, and you have recommended that the UK Government should back his perpetual-motion machine. By the way, why have you not ‘explained’ it using ECE? After all, it ‘touches all of your  bases’: energy-from-nowhere, levitation of spinning objects and quack cancer-cures. What sort of genius has to have someone else come round to attach a new monitor. And where did he park?

Kirchhoff’s Law: a problem

August 19, 2017

Agreed as always with Stephen Crothers, in my rather unpleasant dealings with ‘t Hooft more than a decade ago, it quickly became apparent that he knew nothing about Cartan geometry, had not read a word of ECE theory and did not know that everything is checked with computer algebra. This is typical of the standard model dogmatists. Prof van der Merwe’s “Foundations of Physics” was destroyed by an organized e mail attack. With physics like this who needs short arm tackles?”

If a theory predicts ‘energy from nowhere’ it is clearly wrong. Finding the precise mistake should be left to bright undergraduates. There is nothing wrong with Cartan geometry … only with your incorrect extensions of it. Computer algebra checks only that manipulations of equations have been correctly performed; it cannot detect flaws in a worthless theory. That is the job of experiment: either new ones disprove the theory (experimental confirmation opens a logical ‘can of worms’) or the theory does not agree with existing results. Van der Merde’s Foundations of Physics Letters was destroyed by himself, you, the AIAS gang and ‘Dr’ Bearden, not by any whistle-blowers who were simply fed up with reading tripe about perpetual-motion machines. Crothers is a clown and Robitaille is a crank who thinks that amateurish demonstrations performed using everyday objects somehow outweighs years of experimentation using highly sophisticated instruments. What the shining edifice of physics really needs is a pressure-hose to wash all of the crud off its periphery.  

By the way, the current issue of American Journal of Physics contains an educational paper about relativity and geometry. What a tragedy it is that pseudoscience is free-to-view while real science is hidden behind a pay-wall.
