21. A Dent in the Space-Time Fabric? (2) [Thunderbolts Website]
... the one on GRO J1655-40, how is a reader supposed to identify the boundary between fact and conjecture? The Space.com report states — “A spinning black hole in the constellation Scorpius has created a stable dent in the fabric of spacetime, scientists say”. Fact: No one has seen a black hole. All we have are electromagnetic signals that are open to many interpretations. But “mainstream” cosmologists interpret the signals in one way only, based on their peculiar set of axioms about the nature of space, time and gravity. Many of the most accomplished plasma experts dispute the entire complex of assumptions. Fact: The ”fabric of spacetime” is a mathematical abstraction of widely debated relevance to the study of natural phenomena. Critics say that the word “spacetime” is essentially meaningless because it combines two incompatible concepts — the 3-dimensional space we experience and a non-dimensional interval of time. In physics, a dimension can only be measured by a physical ruler. However, mathematicians use the word ambiguously to denote any number of variables. This results in ...
22. Escape from Einstein by Ronald R. Hatch [SIS C&C Review $]
... relativity theories and Hatch's ether gauge theory fare in explaining their results. For anyone who believes that Einstein's theories have been proven beyond doubt by scientific experiments, Hatch's analysis is an eye-opener: time and again, he shows that famous experiments do not prove what they were claimed to prove and he lines up an impressive list of anomalous results which, far from vindicating Einstein, actually appear to prove him wrong. However Hatch claims that they are all consistent with his ether gauge theory. In Einstein's General Theory, free fall in a gravity field is claimed to be equivalent to unaccelerated motion in flat space:'... since unaccelerated clocks in Minkowski space run at a constant rate, this says that all clocks which are in free fall should run at constant rates. But they don't! The Global Position System (GPS) satellites need clock 'relativity' corrections for both the general theory and the special theory as a function of the eccentricity of the orbit...'

23. Conference: Our Violent Solar System [SIS Internet Digest $]
... he was nearly finished... and he quoted Velikovsky at the post-conference discussion. Will this seminar, by introducing him to Velikovsky and the "Three Musketeers of the Saturn Theory" lead to another "conversion" (and further loss of popularity) for him? Dunno. We'll have to wait and see. Ted Holden's familiar "impossible dinosaurs" is as still a crucial point in the discussion of Earth's ancient history. He's added a few details that I wasn't aware of. First, an estimate of the scale of gravity attenuation necessary for the dinosaurs to have survived: gravity must have been weaker by 2.8 times today's gravity. Second, he mentioned other difficulties, like lifting their long necks and holding up their tails. He added evidence that the attenuation of gravity must have continued to some degree into the times of the monument-building humans. One of my rhetorical questions: if they manage to clone the Siberian mammoth, will it be crippled by our gravity when it reaches maturity? The inescapable conclusion was expressed best in the popular 80's movie trilogy ...

25. Flow Slips, Ocean Bottom Currents and Subaqueous Dunes [Catastrophism Geology $]
... second, material derived from a 183m high cliff had moved a maximum distance of 700 m. The estimated volume was between 11 and 15 million cubic metres. For a third occurrence, invoiving much less material, Marshall provides a plan (Fig 1) which shows the maximum distance of the leading edge to be 650m. At that time this type of displacement was considered unusual, and Marshall wrote of a new coastal feature due to seismic action" (p. 86). Realising that this phenomenon was not due to ordinary gravity slip, he introduced the term "flow slip ", and commented: "It will be noticed that a distinction is made between flow slips and the ordinary slips that may be ascribed to gravity" (p. 89). Noticing newly-formed vertical cracks in some of the cliff faces, Marshall reasoned that flow slip was initiated subsequent to the formation of such cracks: "A prism of rock would thus be formed, and it is suggested that the vibrations acting on the base of the prism thus isolated and unsupported would ...

27. Newtonian Gravity May Have Broken Down In Greenland [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 74: Mar-Apr 1991 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Newtonian Gravity May Have Broken Down In Greenland Anomalies in the measurement of gravity in Australian mines have stimulated an experiment in one of the very deep holes drilled in the Greenland ice cap. The hole at location Dye-3 is 2 kilometers deep. Gravity measurements were made at 183-meter intervals between depths of 213 and 1673 meters. Elaborate precautions were taken to assure that proper corrections were made for ice density and the nature of the rock below the ice. Ice-penetrating radar sketched the topography of the icerock surface, and surface-gravity measurements assessed density variations in surrounding ice and rock. The results of this finely tuned experiment are found in the final two sentences of the report's Abstract: "An anomalous variation in gravity totaling 3.87 mGal (3.87 x 10- 5 m/s 2) in a depth interval of 1460 m was observed. This may be attributed either to a breakdown of Newtonian gravity or to unexpected density variations in the ...
28. Stars in an Electric Universe [Aeon Journal $]
... features of the present state emerge. When the basic assumption is unrelated to actually observed phenomena, chances are that the result will be the same as over thousands of years: a model which, by definition, is a myth, although it may be adorned with differential equations in accordance with the requirements of modern times." [2 The Electric Universe model does not assume that the Sun and its planets are genetically related. The conventional argument that capture is highly improbable does not apply in the new model because our understanding of gravity is flawed. It attempts to avoid being another modern scientific myth by the paradoxical use of comparative myth to provide information about how the sky looked many thousands of years ago. Comparative mythology is highly significant in the Electric Universe model because it allows the actualistic principle to be extended over a much longer period than in any earlier cosmology. It is a principle advocated by Alfvén. It emphasizes experiment and observation, extending the present state step by step back in time to unravel the history of the Sun and its planets. The ...
29. The Electric Universe [SIS C&C Review $]
... a coherent new view of the universe. It highlights repeated electrical patterns at all scales that enable laboratory experiments to explain the strange energetic events seen, for example, in deep space, on the Sun and on Jupiter's moon, Io. The model follows Hannes Alfvén's entreaty for scientists to work backwards from observations rather than forward from some idealised theoretical beginning. The Electric Universe takes full account of the basic electrical nature of atoms and their interactions. In conventional cosmology, it is the weaker magnetism and the almost infinitely weak force of gravity which rule the cosmos. The Electric Universe grew out of an interdisciplinary approach to science and the realisation that a new plasma cosmology and an understanding of electrical phenomena in space could illuminate work being done in comparative mythology. By using information from a wide span of human existence and knowledge, the Electric Universe can provide answers to many questions that seem unrelated. For example, records of the prehistoric sky can help unravel the recent history of the planets and the planets bear witness with pristine scars of cosmic encounters. The result is ...
30. The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision" [SIS C&C Review $]
... of Motion, I have absolutely no difference of opinion whatsoever with what Dr Roy has said. I believe that, in the case of point-particle Newtonian mechanics, including only Newton's Law of Motion and even disregarding things that Newton would have accepted, such as tidal friction, some aspects of the Velikovskian scenario are untenable. However, if we pass from the idealised mathematical celestial mechanics of point particles to bodies of finite size, which can then have the physical property of being non-rigid (deformable) and can involve other forces besides Newtonian gravity, then I believe that there is some possibility that most, if not all, of the Velikovskian scenario could be consistent with Newton's Law of Motion. However, there are some aspects of the Velikovskian scenario that I believe are not even tenable under these conditions; and we would have to add still further departures from Newtonian mechanics, which I will come to. Now, many of Velikovsky's followers have realised this, and Velikovsky himself and others have hypothesised electrostatic forces; but there are grave objections to these: there are ...
