Big G

Rupert Sheldrake has pointed to the gravitational constant not being a constant but that it varies over time.  It actually varies rather precisely at 5.9 years and matches the Earth’s rotational speed cycle of 5.9 years.  Mainstream physicists do not know why this happens.

The gravitational constant, G, is determined by the Cavendish experiment involving two large and two small lead spheres. In the experiment G is measured in the horizontal plane. Both the gravity and electric fields are vertical. The magnetic field has a horizontal orientation at the equator and a vertical one at the poles.

The Earth’s rotation is caused by the Birkeland currents entering and exiting the polar regions. These currents would also generate the Earth’s magnetic field, and fluctuations in the geomagnetic field could be explained by variations in the Birkeland currents, which implies a variation in the solar current that is observed to cycle roughly 11 years or two earth cycles of 5.9 years.

Hence G seems to be affected by the geomagnetic field variation which is linked to the Earth’s rotation via the polar Birkeland currents.

This suggests G is affected by magnetism, since any change in the earth’s gravitational field is in the vertical direction that the Cavendish Experiment nullifies because of its design. If we imagine the balls of lead to be comprised of protons and electrons, then like attracts unlike and the large ball would attract the smaller.

Now imagine two identical spheres of metal, one made of lead, the other of aluminium. We know both will land at the same time, everything else being equal, when dropped from a height. This is a fact. 

Imagine you have two identical shapes of equal volume filled with protons, the aluminium shape having less protons than the lead shape.

The proton in the aluminium sphere will move at the same speed as a proton in the lead sphere and both will arrive at the earth’s surface when both are dropped at the same instant from a height.

Has the Cavendish experiment been done with a controlled E and M fields? A horizontal component of an E field may be present but unaccounted for since it is firmly believed G is independent of E and M.

Measuring mass is not an absolute measurement or quantification of the “stuff” an object of matter is made of. It’s relative.

Magnetic fields are always secondary effects of primary motion of electrically charged particles.  You cannot have a magnetic field in the absence of an electric current.

Protons spin and thus generate micro magnetic fields, or are they nano fields?

Matter is thus shapes containing spinning protons.

Newton did not know anything about electricity.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
