1994: BEYOND E=mc2

A first glimpse of a postmodern physics, in which mass, inertia, and gravity arise from underlying electromagnetic processes Bernard Haisch, Alfonso Rueda & H.E. Puthoff published in THE SCIENCES, Vol. 34, No. 6, November / December 1994, pp. 26-31 copyright 1994, New York Academy of Sciences (posted with permission) The most famous of all equations must surely be E=mc2. In popular culture, that relation between energy and mass is virtually synonymous with relativity, and Einstein, its originator, has become a symbol of modern physics. The usual interpretation of the equation is that one kind of fundamental physical thing, mass (m in the equation), can be converted into a quite different kind of fundamental physical thing, energy (E in the equation), and vice versa; the two quantities are inextricably intertwined, related by the factor c2, the square of the velocity of light. The energy of the sun, for instance, comes […] Read More

1999: Rethinking Relativity

BY TOM BETHEL No one has paid attention yet, but a well-respected physics journal just published an article whose conclusion, if generally accepted, will undermine the foundations of modern physics — Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in particular.  Published in Physics Letters A (December 21, 1998), the article claims that the speed with which the force of gravity propagates must be at least twenty billion times faster than the speed of light.  This would contradict the Special Theory of Relativity of 1905, which asserts that nothing can go faster than light.  This claim about the special status of the speed of light has become part of the world view of educated laymen in the twentieth century. NOTE: Tom Van Flandern‘s article, titled “The Speed of Gravity – What the Experiments Say,” is provided as a Web Page on this Website. Special Relativity, as opposed to the General Theory (1916), is […] Read More

2014: Nebraska Garage Hacker Bends Fabric of Space

By Omaha Working toward a warp drive: In his garage lab, Omahan David Pares aims to bend the fabric of space. You might call Pares a dreamer, though what he’s doing goes far beyond the realm of online chatter. You might not believe any of this stuff. But suspend your disbelief for a moment and make space for something incredible. Let’s start this past summer, when a NASA scientist named Harold “Sonny” White unveiled an artist’s rendering of a spacecraft capable of shooting across the galaxy. The spacecraft was theoretical, but the research behind it was real. For years White has been exploring the possibilities of actual “Star Trek”-like travel. He even named his ship the IXS Enterprise. There are obstacles, such as forms of energy that might not exist. That’s a problem. For NASA, yes, but also for the world’s scientists and Trekkies and time-travel obsessives (not necessarily […] Read More

2015: Do atoms understand language?

Are you your brain and nothing else? If so, mind-control programming is quite reasonable by Jon Rappoport February 19, 2015 NoMoreFakeNews.com “The idea that somewhere in all the stacked-up universes, there might be a little corner that isn’t made out of matter or energy, but is truly independent of, and different from, sub-atomic particles… this idea confounds people, as if it might mean the end of all existence. It might mean a return to the old myths and fairy tales of the horrific priest-classes. It might mean everything science knows will vanish in a puff of smoke. But what if it doesn’t mean any of these things? What if it means that brutal power and domination could die out? What if it means there is an adventure waiting for all of us, beyond any and all pictures of conventional reality?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport) Do atoms understand language? Why […] Read More

2015: Scientists Created A Wormhole In A Lab That Can Transport Magnetic Waves

by Tia Ghose, Senior Writer  Ripped from the pages of a sci-fi novel, physicists have crafted a wormhole that tunnels a magnetic field through space. “This device can transmit the magnetic field from one point in space to another point, through a path that is magnetically invisible,” said study co-author Jordi Prat-Camps, a doctoral candidate in physics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain. “From a magnetic point of view, this device acts like a wormhole, as if the magnetic field was transferred through an extra special dimension.” The idea of a wormhole comes from Albert Einstein’s theories. In 1935, Einstein and colleague Nathan Rosen realized that the general theory of relativity allowed for the existence of bridges that could link two different points in space-time. Theoretically, these Einstein-Rosen bridges, or wormholes, could allow something to tunnel instantly between great distances (though the tunnels in this theory are […] Read More

2016: Einstein Was Wrong?! New Theory Says There’s No Gravity And No Dark Matter

Gravity is something all of us are familiar with from our first childhood experiences. You drop something – it falls. And the way physicists have described gravity has also been pretty consistent – it’s considered one of the four main forces or “interactions” of nature and how it works has been described by Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity all the way back in 1915. But Professor Erik Verlinde, an expert in string theory from the University of Amsterdam and the Delta Institute of Theoretical Physics, thinks that gravity is not a fundamental force of nature because it’s not always there. Instead, it’s “emergent” – coming into existence from changes in microscopic bits of information in the structure of spacetime. Verlinde first articulated this groundbreaking theory in his 2010 paper, which took on the laws of Newton and argued that gravity is “an entropic force caused by changes in the information […] Read More

2016: Experts Abuzz About Possible Discovery That Would All but Upend Most Basic Understanding of Physics

Scientists around the globe are revved up with excitement as the world’s biggest atom smasher — best known for revealing the Higgs boson four years ago — starts whirring again to churn out data that may confirm cautious hints of an entirely new particle. Such a discovery would all but upend the most basic understanding of physics, experts say. The European Center for Nuclear Research, or CERN by its French-language acronym, has in recent months given more oomph to the machinery in a 27-kilometer (17-mile) underground circuit along the French-Swiss border known as the Large Hadron Collider. In a surprise development in December, two separate LHC detectors each turned up faint signs that could indicate a new particle, and since then theorizing has been rife. “It’s a hint at a possible discovery,” said theoretical physicist Csaba Csaki, who isn’t involved in the experiments. “If this is really true, then […] Read More

1979: TIME WITHOUT END: PHYSICS AND BIOLOGY IN AN OPEN UNIVERSE (*)

Freeman J. Dyson Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton New Jersey 08540 Reviews of Modern Physics, Vol. 51, No. 3, July 1979 (c) 1979 American Physical Society Edited for Internet Science Education Project by Jack Sarfatti. Quantitative estimates are derived for three classes of phenomena that may occur in an open cosmological model of Friedmann type. (1) Normal physical processes taking place with very long time-scales. (2) Biological processes that will result if life adapts itself to low ambient temperatures according to a postulated scaling law. (3) Communication by radio between life forms existing in different parts of the universe. The general conclusion of the analysis is that an open universe need not evolve into a state of permanent quiescence. Life and communication can continue forever, utilizing a finite store of energy, if the assumed scaling laws are valid.
