Ynys Cedwyn and Garth Lines

March 18, 2017

To my Aubrey Morgan cousin, Stuart Davies:

I know a very good computer expert (Steve Dewitt , thegower) who would probably be able to fix the connection problem. If it is Talk Talk I have access to the Chief Executive’s staff.”

No you haven’t: you send nagging e-mails to a CEO who has made a gimmick of ‘being available’ and you get fake ‘personal replies’.

Book “principles of ECE theory II”, Chapter by Stephen Corthers

March 17, 2017

I invited him some months ago, and he is welcome to contribute of course. I will be very glad to contribute to costs. Volume One is a great success, being read about five thousand times a year off combined sites. The publication in Berlin by EPubli is of high quality, good paper quality and binding, and good colour illustrations. The preprint of volume two has been read several thousand times.”

So far, Trump has not yet appointed a Chief Scientific Adviser, although he has his eye on a climate-change denier (Current joke: “why are governments like nylon stockings?” “Because they are both measured by their deniers”). As an American, you could apply for the job; you would be sure to get enthusiastic backing, and a farewell dinner,  from Mawr and you could use Crothers, the Public Dick, as a reference. After all, he has a much higher profile than do you: he actually attends conferences in order to be jeered at. But just imagine: as Chief Scientific Adviser to Trump you could give influential jobs to all of your  (American) crackpot friends.  Valone should certainly be made head of the USPO. Bearden could be put in charge of DARPA. There are crackpots (Gamble, Bailey) already working for Boeing and Lockheed, and some of that increased military spending will definitely benefit them.

Formal Complaint to the Local Authority Ombudsman

March 16, 2017

I have submitted a strong formal protest and complaint to the Local Authority Ombudsman concerning irregularities in planning permission on Mountain Road, and will write to the Council for a reconsideration of the planning permission. I have been informed as Armiger that the developer was told over the the telephone that permission would be given before the Committee actually considered the proposal. ”

Nobody approaches you ‘as Armiger’, as that title is not associated with any sort of civil power, social position or political status. If any other social-climber in the area chose to pay thousands of pounds to the College of Arms, there would then be 2 armigers. Big deal!

“The developer was told not to take any notice of objections. My strong objection, published in the “South Wales Evening Post” was summarily overruled and in effect not even considered, even though I am an adversely affected neighbour and the only Armiger in Mawr and surrounding areas. ”

The newspaper report quite rightly portrayed you as being a clownish and possibly racist ‘nimby’, and all of the readers’ comments were negative towards you. You are not ‘adversely affected’; at least not by any stretch of the rational imagination. And again, nobody cares about your imagined importance as someone who chooses to put archaic symbols on his website and house.

“This is an example of what I call “forced development”. It ultimately forces young people to emigrate out of Mawr, to be replaced by elderly monoglot incomers. Land and house prices are wildly inflated, a bubble economy. ”

The house-buying problems of young people are universal, and not just a local difficulty. Most of the UK would consider the Mawr housing market to be depressed. If old people flock there, it is more likely to be because they are poor rather than rich; their pensions removing the young person’s quandary of a shortage of local jobs. Young people nowadays have to wait for their parents to die, or re-mortgage their house, so as to get onto the housing-ladder. Hmm, what have you contributed in that respect? Let’s see: you have put your house into trust so that neither your wife nor step-daughter(s?) can inherit. Nice. They should move away … oops.

“I suggest a strike of frontigers along Mountain Road, indefinite refusal to maintain the road. ”

That road is maintained?!

“Forced development is vehemently opposed by the great majority in Mawr. ”

Did you know that there is a village Facebook page? You should join and find out what the ‘great majority’ really think of their ‘armiger’.

“It has completely ruined the language and culture and has reduced the quality of life by catalyzing major traffic problems. A complaint has been made to me as Armiger that the development on Mountain Road is taking place on land that was sold twice over, it had already been paid for. I demand a Parliamentary Enquiry into this. The County Councillor for Mawr has subsequently resigned from the Planning Committee, and I am reliably informed that he will either resign as County Councillor or not stand for re election. After he is gone it may at last be possible to put down double yellow lines for example, and impose control over planning permission , to re establish government in Mawr after years of paralysis.”

We wonder what the general opinion is, concerning the identity of the person who really spoils the quality of village life. Are they still making the ‘Neighbours from Hell’ series? Perhaps you will yet find fame.

New Laws Against Pseudoscientists

March 15, 2017

New Laws against Trolls

March 15, 2017

New laws make incitement to harass online illegal, this is called virtual mobbing. Offensive language, threats and gross distortion of facts are all illegal, they are felonies, criminal offences. Ignorance is not a defence, and anonymity is not defence either. The police have means of identifying trolls, and sometimes it is easy to see who they are, like seeing through Clouseau’s one legged Swedish fisherman with inflatable parrot disguise. ”

It is also easy for physicists to spot pseudoscientists. The latter always sport the same parrots symptoms. For instance, (1) they are always rabidly anti-Einstein. This is a sure crowd-pleaser  among the anti-science members of society. After all, what would be the point of attacking real scientists of whom the public has never heard? (2) they promote perpetual-motion of all kinds, starting from centuries-old scams like the ever-overbalancing wheel (e.g. Bessler*) through energy-from-magnet scams (e.g. Bedini**) all the way up to current scams like cold-fusion and ‘low-energy-nuclear reactions’. (3) they promote anti-gravity scams and deceptions (e.g. Laithwaite) (4) they promote quack cures (especially of cancer) such as Priore’s ‘black box’*** (5) they promote any other sort of nonsense, such as telepathy and ‘Bacon wrote the Shakespeare plays’. In short, they ‘always go where money and fame might be had’. How unlike real scientists: Feynman spent his last years wondering why exactly lawn-sprinklers do not work in reverse.   

“The problem is, trolling is not funny. Legislation is planned to oblige carriers to reveal the names and addresses of trolls, so the police can investigate them. Revealing home addresses without permission is now a criminal offence, and the same may also be true of e mail addresses in the near future. ”

Did you have permission to post your former neighbor’s new address online on the 6th of this month?**** Why don’t you ‘phone your favorite policeman right now and turn yourself in? You also repeatedly post the contents of e-mails online even though the e-mail contains an express warning not to do so. Pseudoscience is not funny. It has always been difficult to master a science, rather than going for the ‘low-hanging fruit’ of the arts, law, history, politics, etc. Imagine how much more difficult it is nowadays when, from pre-school age, children are exposed (via YouTube etc.) to hundreds of visual ‘proofs’ of perpetual-motion, antigravity, etc. This sort of thing probably does more harm than non-violent pornography. When the child becomes more worldly-wise, he will know to check for the symbols of authority (journals, research institutes, academic degrees).  Too late: the pseudoscientists are already way ahead of him. There are now hundreds of apparently respectable journals which deal in nothing but pseudoscience. There are impressive ‘research institutes’ which exist only in electronic form (and cottages). There are degree-mills, churning out fake graduates (Valone, Bearden). Worst of all, there are those who possess genuine degrees, but who prostitute themselves daily in the promotion of pseudoscience. 

“The Crown Prosecution Service plans to go after and prosecute trolls. I would like to see legislation to make it a criminal offence to mention a troll site by word of mouth. Political and scientific trolling is a growing problem. Trolls threaten to reduce the internet to a cesspit, and they are seen in Britain as a national security threat, in other words they are seen as terrorists. ”

So a good start would be to control more carefully the setting-up of fake journals, fake universities (the Welsh assembly has already slapped down one such attempt by a notorious pseudoscientist*****) and the selling of fake degrees. One would not want to stifle new ideas in science, but a list of approved journals should be established and only properly refereed papers should be published within them. All other papers should be electronically tagged to show that they are not suitable for human consumption; just as tainted meat is routinely dyed green. Authors should also be blocked from manipulating their own scientometrics.

“Recently, a teenage girl committed suicide after being trolled, and the then Prime Minister David Cameron intervened. After a New Zealand reporter was driven to suicide recently, the NZ Prime Minister intervened. I have discussed the problem with two former First Ministers, Rhodri Morgan (who took personal action against the physics department at UCW Aberystwyth) and Alun Michael, currently the Police Commissioner for South Wales. Alun Michael has all the evidence concerning various troll attacks on my colleagues and myself, including death threats. Anyone involved in that is automatically committing a criminal offence under various laws and could be charged if the police decide to act. I know the likely identity of a few local trolls and will press for them to be charged on the trail of de facto evidence they are stupid enough to write down. After the very low standard of “debate” in the US general election recently, political trolling has become a problem. Scientific trolling is a growing problem and action can be also be taken against that. Like Alun Michael, a hard liner on trolling, I have campaigned against it for years.”

We would be very interested in knowing the details of these events. Politicians do not fare very well when they get involved with science. Politics, like journalism, is the very antithesis of truth-seeking. We have a photograph of Rhodri Morgan, standing right next to a gentleman who is known to consort with a notorious pseudoscientist******. Politicos, from Stalin via Peron to Cherie Blair, are always drawn to pseudoscience. We also like to campaign. Suck it up!

Meanwhile, Back in the Real World

Wind 5.77%, 2 – 23 mph, 4 – 8 mph, 0736 local time

March 15, 2017

The average wind speed in the Betws area is now 4 mph, so the turbines are producing nothing as usual, there was dense, cold fog all night, so the solar panels are producing nothing as usual. Over all Britain, solar is 0.40% so there must be sunshine somewhere. Maybe someone is pointing a torch at a solar panel in a northern Shetland island pig sty. This energy policy is a joke so one may as well laugh. Mynydd y Gwair will soon be obliterated by more useless turbines. A revolutionary new energy policy is needed, and those responsible for this corruption imprisoned. Swansea Councillors can move across the road and take up residence at Her Majesty’s bed and breakfast in Swansea Prison, a dreary building that has not changed in a hundred and fifty years. The County and City Hall must be lit by candles, and looks like an old concrete dust bin.

Two High Sheriffs of Brecon of the Morgan Family

March 12, 2017

Many thanks to my cousin Stuart Davies, who is a direct descendent of Morgan Morgan Castell Craig y Nos. I hereby add them to my list of High Sheriffs of the Morgan Aubrey Family and archive them via this blog. We have established definitively that Elizabeth Portrey indeed lived at Ynys Cedwyn House.”

Isn’t all of this genealogy pure torture to you? All of those illustrious ancestors, leading down to …  you: someone who demeans the honours which he does possess, and dreams pathetically and incessantly of honours that he will never receive …  because science abhors a pseudoscientist. Nature abhors a vacuous, so to speak. At least you have had the foresight not to continue your line.

Coats of Arms in the Morgan Awbrey Line

March 9, 2017

The attached is authentic genealogy referred to for example by wikitree as definitive. It is the work of many fine scholars and myself and is very popular off www.aias.us. In the past nine hundred years (a short interval for this ancient and famous Family) there have not been all that many coats of arms in the line back to Prince Bleddyn ap Maenarch and Tewdwr Mawr, the Tudor ancestor and King of all of the southern regions of Wales.

Blah, blah, blah …”

Noting that you claim descent from the fictional King Lear (Leir), we are amazed that you do not also claim descent from King Arthur. But if you are related to QEII, you must have even more illustrious ancestors than you thought:

We look forward to hearing that you have gone to sit at His right hand.

UFT88 Read at Imperial

March 9, 2017

Imperial College London was founded in 1907, is ranked 8 in the world by Times, 9 by QS, 22 by Shanghai and 60 by Webometrics (with the latter’s emphasis on web presence). Staff and students from Imperial frequently consult www.aias.us and www.upitec.org and have done so consistently since 30/4/04 when the scientometrics began. It has 17,000 students, 15 Nobel Laureates as staff and alumni, 2 Fields Medallists and has produced 70 F.R.S.’s”

But Eric Laithwaite worked at Imperial, and he was a complete loony, so what’s your point?! Would you believe that he actually thought that spinning-tops can levitate? What sort of idiot would believe that? He backed all sorts of other loony ideas, but all that the general public ever heard about was magnetic levitation and linear induction motors; the commercial possibilities of which he royally screwed-up for the UK. It seems that he also claimed to have met an alien but, given that we heard that story from a well-known transvestite ufologist, it is probably not true. We like to think that not even Laithwaite was that far gone. What are your views on little green men, Ron? The people who lap up your daft theory at the Coeur d’Alene conferences are certainly keen on aliens:

The uppermost book is about ‘aliens at the Pentagon’.

The True Orbit of Planets in the Solar System

March 9, 2017

The true orbit of planets has been calculated for the first time directly from the ECE2 relativistic lagrangian in notes for UFT372 (in prep). The first results were posted yesterday on this blog. The description of the true precessing orbit was first attempted in UFT328 by using a scatter plot to solve the lagrangian and hamiltonian of ECE2 relativity simultaneously. The new method in UFT372 is simpler, uses only the lagrangian, and produces results that can be compared with astronomical data in a simple way. The new method relies on simultaneous numerical solution of the relevant Euler Lagrange equations. It has been shown in many UFT papers that the orbit produced by Einsteinian general relativity becomes wildly unstable if tested with sufficient rigour using precession angles of greater than the very tiny microradians of the solar system. Many if not all of Einstein’s approximations have been refuted (e.g. UFT150 and UFT155 and so on). There are some alarming errors and obscurities in Einstein’s work. The Einstein theory fails qualitatively (i.e. completely) when tested against the velocity curve of a spiral galaxy, whereas ECE2 succeeds in giving the major features. The obsolete physics covers up the failure of the Einstein theory by use of dark matter, which is merely empiricism. The very fact that dark matter is used means that the Einstein theory has failed. The x theory of ECE produces precessing orbits, but for large angles it develops in to the fractal conic sections. These are mathematically important, but do not appear to be physical. So the new relativistic lagrangian theory becomes the preferred theory. It gives the true precessing orbit, and is valid for all angles.”

You seem to have forgotten that ‘x theory’ is not yours, it is ours! Years ago, one of us sent you a letter, purportedly from a Cardiff schoolboy, which asked why his computer-model of an orbit gave ridiculous results. It was supposed to be a hoax, to be revealed soon afterwards by referring to details of the letter which nobody but you could know. Unfortunately not realizing how desperate you are for human contact and how short of feedback you are we did not, for instance, mark the reverse side of the page. So we were completely wrong-footed when you posted a photograph of the letter in question. The only remaining proof of the hoax is the fact that it would be impossible to find that pupil. So, in future, please refer to it as the Herbert (a mild UK euphemism which equates to ‘klutz’) theory or the CPW (crackpotwatch) theory. Nevertheless, it is astonishing that SS – with his ‘superior’ computing skills and his (now conveniently free-to-download) Maxima program – is willing to continue to make the same mistake as a fictitious schoolboy, just to suit your needs.

Oh …

Main Element of My Coat of Arms

March 8, 2017

This is the golden lion rampant of the Kingdom of Deheubarth. The same pattern and colours are used on my arms, with extra elements, a silver sheaf of hay to convey the fact that my father, Edward Ivor, was a farmer,”

… a sheaf? Should have found a better artist: we always thought that it depicted a ‘volcano’ firework unexpectedly blowing up in the face of an incompetent pyrotechnician, or chemist.
