Belief

You only believe in something when you don’t know.

Update: So you build a machine according to an interpretation of data and you design it so that when A is done P is the result.

You believe A will produce P. You hope A will produce P.

So you action the apparatus but it produces X instead. Now you know that your belief that A produces P is false.

However if you continue believing A produces P, when I know it doesn’t because experience shows it doesn’t, then we will disagree.

Your problem then is rejecting experience and replacing it with hope or belief. This is the working of the religious mind which believes in the absence of fact or knowledge. Religious minds believe belief always trumps reality.

Coulomb’s Law

Coulomb’s law means instantaneous electrical forces.

This is not observed; probably because of Newton’s prior thoughts.

Electrical forces exist in the time domain since they are perceived via motion.

We really do need to understand the process of thinking more thoroughly since the above are thoughts.

Update: The Lorentz force is the electromagnetic force caused by electric charges in motion. Electric charges move in an electric field produced by electric charge separation. So Newton described the motion of charged particles/objects without knowing the existence of electricity.

So Coulomb’s Law is actually Newton’s law of gravitation?

Religious Minds

Religious minds are those which submit totally to an authority what ever that authority might be, whether some or other god, holy book, ideology or theory.

Irreligious minds don’t.

Questioning authority is thus blasphemy, whether theological, scientific or ideological.

Scientific? Whoops, I meant pseudoscientific.

Take home message: If the cap fits wear it; otherwise feel free to do otherwise.

Einstein’s Disunified Field Problem

Albert Einstein was alleged to have spent his last days trying to establish a unified field theorem incorporating electromagnetics and gravity.  He failed, and no one else will succeed either because of one problem.

The difference in magnitude between the gravitational force and the electrical force is some 10^39, gravity being the weaker force. Numerically this may be expressed as:

1.000000000000000000000000000000000000001,

where the integer portion is the electrical force and the decimal part, 38 zeros followed by 1, the gravitational. Fluctuations in the gravity component will not be discernible as motion by an apparatus designed to measure the electrical component.

It is generally accepted that 99.997% of the visible universe is comprised of matter in the plasma state.  This means that 0.003% of the visible universe is comprised of electrically neutral matter that obeys, so it is believed, Newton’s law of gravity.

Astute readers might note a slight issue with this situation.

We also know that the gravitational force acts instantaneously at all dimensions: which means it is not observable, and hence not measureable, in the time domain.  This means that gravity waves are not observable in time.

Pregnant Pause.

Modeling of the 3 body problem using computer programs cannot describe Newtonian gravitational motion because computer software operates strictly in the time domain in a strictly linear fashion. Computer software involves lines of code executed sequentially.

Another Pregnant Pause.

If gravity is instantaneous, then there cannot be any motion as each and very object in the universe will be acted on at the same time by every other object following Newton’s laws of motion.  Motion occurs in the time domain and indeed only perceptible in the time domain. Hence in a purely gravitational universe there will be no motion observed.

Which means that Newton’s insight that a body attracts another body is simply the logical fallacy of arguing the consequent.

It is significant that Coulomb’s law is identical in form to Newton’s gravitational equation.

Gravity : F = Gxm1xm2/d^2 – decimal portion of above number

Coulomb : F = Qxq1xq2/d^2 – integer portion of above number

We know Newton’s Law of gravity and motion works within our solar system.

We do not know, however, whether it works beyond the solar system empirically.

And we also know from AJ Peratt’s work using PIC simulation of EM that spiral galaxies are explained using plasma physics incorporating Maxwell’s equations etc..; gravity was ignored.

As Einstein was a mathematician, all of his efforts were spent working out the physics of his imaginative universe. It certainly was not of the real physical universe  he lived in.

We also know that the planets of our solar system do not obey the Faraday motor principle operating in the Peratt models.

This is probably because our own solar system may have only arrived at its present topology some 1000 or so years ago, during the Middle Dark Ages, and is presently in the throes of dynamically re-equilibrating the various orbits to the final Faraday motor geometry from the existing, temporary, Newtonian geometry.

There is a unified field theorem and it doesn’t include gravity because the objects on which this theory are based, the planets of our solar system, are not in dynamical equilibrium. It’s why big gee,G, is not a constant as noted by Rupert Sheldrake.

Geological Chronology and Time

I keep forgetting that mainstream science is divided by chronological disputation into two major camps – short and long chronologists. 

The short-chronologists are the religious fundamentalists who assume their holy authority is perfect and that therefore what is written in the Old Testament or holy book(s) is literally true.

The long-chronologists are secular fundamentalists, or liberal theologists, who reject the idea that the Old Testament and Talmud etc are authentic codes and instead are interpreted as variants of literature and allegories.

Both camps have a profound belief in Creation, a process by which via some or other miracle something (our universe) was formed from nothing either a short time ago if one is a biblical literalist, or a long time ago if one is a biblical liberalist.

I identify with neither camp but assume the universe has always existed, thus rejecting creationism in its entirety.  I lean towards the scientific exegesis involving the principles of the Plasma Universe and Electric Universe model.

I do not confuse the ego that is created by the process of thought with consciousness on which it is constructed by the brain.

Life has always existed.

I therefore do not have the difficult task of explaining how life appeared from inanimate matter, itself the result of a previous miracle.

In a philosophical sense I reject the ideas that the means determine the ends, or the ends, the means; rather the means are the ends.

This is described as linear thinking and a peculiar occidental characteristic. The alternative oriental approach is cyclical in which physical reality is interpreted as the process of perpetual wheels in wheels in wheels in which life is continuously forming and reforming with no start and no end.

In this world-view there is no beginning nor no end, just life recycling itself into different and new forms dependent on the particular physical environment.

Observation of active geological processes, such as the rapid formation of boulders and beach sands on the recently formed volcanic island of Surtsey off Iceland, exploding volcanoes, etc., might lend support of the short chronologists, but that would be a mistake, and comes about from forcing the scientific method to be compatible with pre-existing religious beliefs.

Obviously I am irreligious and unsupportive of both long and short chronologies.

I’m a liberal Velikovskian in the sense that his ideas, at the time, based on the the information of that time, were technically correct but that with the discovery of new facts and data over time, some of his theories were falsified while others verified. Such is the nature of science that is always a corpus of provisional rules and theories compatible with existing knowledge. All scientific theories become modified when new data contradict existing theory, and the scientists then change their minds; the religious and dogmatists/ideologues don’t and instead find themselves stalled in intellectual culture-de-sacs of their own making.  Cul-de-sac’king becomes easier when physical experience no longer becomes a requisite for experiment, and one becomes proficient in thought-experimentation.

Geological Uniformitarianism is thus the explanation of the formation of geological structures over infinite time, and biological evolution is simply creation stretched beyond reasonableness.

 

The sense of time I use is simple, and putting it into the psychological sense of yesterday, today and tomorrow, the following relationship is assumed:

NO DATA —> The Present and all that matters —> NO DATA, where the arrows represent the direction of time.

This is in complete contrast with the existing world-view that assumes:

Creation from nihilo —> appearance of matter —> short time or long time —> the present —> heaven, paradise, utopia, the future.

(NO DATA does not mean nothing.)

It is important to realise that the process of thinking involves memorising sounds that represent words which are then concatenated via rules into ideas.  Thoughts are always memories and the future is simply the extension of the past into the future. The mind cannot conceive of the future since its tool, the process of thinking, is always comprised of the past, or memories.

Decades ago I found myself in yet another mining exploration industry bust period when, like many of my peers, I had to resort to other means by which to put food on the table. Fresh with the discoveries of diamond indicator minerals at Kununurra in the West Australian Kimberley, as well as anachronistic anthropological data of tribal aborigines having knowledge of Proterozoic (1,100 Ma) geology,  I wondered whether I might find funds to continue the research. Megan Clarke, then senior research geologist for WMC limited, my former employer, averred that they were not allowed to think as I did, and hence could not support me.

The long time chronologists are right that the short term chronologists have no scientific basis for their ideas, but that’s only because both camps use a limited set of tools. Those of us who have wandered into the electric plasma paddock have an extra tool, gemagnetohydrodynamics, or the physics of electrified plasma in a geological sense. Conventional geology limits itself to radioactivity as the source of energy, and water and wind to explain the rest. In the geoplasma field, we add geomagnetohydrodynamics. With this additional tool much becomes explicable.

Quantum Queries

One of the persistent problems in science is the reconciliation of Newtonian objective mechanics and quantum mechanics; quantum mechanics’ domain is the atomic one.

Physical objects are independent 3-D shapes whose existence is independent of the observer.  Newton’s laws describe the motion of these objects with other objects. Newton’s equations, or laws, work and are not questioned here.

However objects are imagined to be fabricated from atomic particles; particles are not objects but imaginals.

Those particles are not objects in the Newtonian sense and his laws are thus not applicable to describing their imagined motion, if any.

No one can handle an isolated proton, electron or neutron: they are all imaginary constructs and under no circumstances an object in the Newtonian sense.

But we imagine they are objects and thus assign properties to them that are subsequently learned to be inexplicable.

It’s because of the way we think.

Einstein fabricated relativity because all his efforts were confined to the imaginal world in which he lived; he was totally in thrall of his imagination, but unlike the Red Queen, imagined a bit more than six impossible things before breakfast.

He imagined that Time was a physical thing; it’s not, and it strictly an imagined abstraction. Time is not physical. Time is simply based on the observation of a repetitive physical phenomena such as an orbiting satellite around a star or planet. Or one could look at an analog clock and wonder when it started ticking.

The problems of Quantum mechanics arise because we ignorantly extrapolate the physics of objects to the microscopic domain in which objects do not exist; Newton’s laws are not applicable at that level, and thus those “imaginals” have no shape, mass nor independent objective existences.
