My comments on the latest mass media "Official Science" news story:


Do not be misled by the recent reports of the detection of gravity waves.
What the LIGO apparatus measures is the interference from beams of self-generated electromagnetic waves. It seems highly probable that what LIGO actually detected was some vibrational “noise” or some unexplained interference; and NOT gravity waves originating from a distant binary system (in which two extremely massive black holes are supposedly in the process of merging). How the data, the wave patterns, are interpreted is subject to theory and restricted by theory. Naturally the official interpretation must conform to the Officially-sanctioned theory of gravity —Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Thus, the light patterns recorded by LIGO are interpreted via Einstein’s mathematical concept of gravity. The problem is the general-relativity-gravity interpretation, as is well known, ignores the space medium!

Have gravity waves really been detected?
Think about this: The academic experts do not have the cause and mechanism of gravity (Isaac Newton did not, Albert Einstein did not, and today’s big-bang astrophysicists do not). Their theory of gravity is embarrassingly incomplete! So, if they do not yet understand the nature of gravity itself, how then can they claim to be able to recognize the waves that gravity supposedly emits? The experts cannot even answer the simple question: Specifically, what is it that is waving? What is waving back and forth?
    Here is something else the reports fail to mention: The gravity waves that are actually detectable are those associated with the turbulence in the aether flow (the space medium streaming through our Solar System). Australian physicist Reginald T. Cahill has been examining these aether-flow waves for over 15 years. –CR (2016 May)

● “The man accredited with discovering universe expansion did not believe that the universe was expanding. Hubble was convinced that the key evidence, the cosmic redshift, was caused by some other factor, something more fundamental than mere expansion.”
● “With the recent discovery of a new cosmic-redshift mechanism, and its theoretical validation, it turns out that Hubble was right.”
● Explains how “an infinite, non-expanding, perpetually regenerating universe" is able to predict a dark night sky.

Higgs Boson Discovered?
After 50 long years of searching, Physicists claim to have detected the Higgs boson, the "particle" that ostensibly bestows the property of mass on all other such particles. Is it now time to celebrate? … Definitely not.
   The question now is this: If the Higgs ‘particle’ is the giver of mass to all other particles, what then gives the Higgs itself its mass?! (Yes, the newly discovered particle has mass, lots of it!) A difficult and embarrassing question indeed. It is like asking:
If God created everything, then who, or what, created God?
   While physicists think they have solved the mass problem, the reality is that they have unwittingly exposed an even bigger problem —the riddle of “First Cause”.

 The Key that Extends Einstein’s Relativity (Part 1)

Response to a reviewer critical of DSSU aether-referenced relativity

Conrad Ranzan
2010
 

Some Background

The main purpose of the research paper DSSU Relativity –The Lorentz Transformations Applied to Aether-Space is to present DSSU* relativity (including the derivation of the extended Lorentz Transformations). The secondary purpose is to show how an aether-based theory subsumes Einstein’s special relativity theory (ESR); to show how the ESR equations fit into a broader and more realistic theory.

The paper challenges a belief long held by the Physics Community —the belief that Einstein’s theory is incompatible with space-medium theories.

Consider that the fundamental difference between DSSU relativity and Einstein’s relativity is clearly irreconcilable —the former embraces a subquantum space medium, the latter denies or ignores it. The fundamental conflict is over aether space versus abstract space. Yet, at a practical level, the two theories can be merged —and this can be accomplished without altering the fundamental fact that all reference-frame velocities in DSSU are absolute (with respect to aether), while all reference-frame velocities in ESR are relative (with respect to an observer). ... The discussion below includes a description of the functional link  —“the Key” of the main title.

There is an interesting historical aspect to all this. Einstein had predicted, at a time when Dayton Miller was uncovering evidence of aether, that if the detection of aether were to be confirmed, then it would mean the invalidation of his theory of relativity. As it turned out, aether was repeatedly detected. But Einstein’s relativity survived. Let me explain. The detection of aether invalidated a premise that Einstein had considered essential to his theory. But actually that premise was wholly unnecessary! Einstein’s theory could work without it. And so, Einstein’s prediction of aether’s dire consequences was unfounded.

* DSSU is the acronym for Dynamic Steady State Universe. It is a model based on the premise that all things are processes.

* * *

The paper DSSU Relativity –The Lorentz Transformations Applied to Aether-Space (published in Physics Essays Vol.23, No.3, 2010 Sept. (Abstract)) was examined by three different reviewers. Two of the reviewers approved publication; but one was unreasonably critical and adamantly opposed publication. He wrote,

“I deeply regret that I have to reject the publication of this paper, as I do admire Dr. Ranzan’s courage in recognizing the aether and the problem’s with Einstein’s theory, which deserves encouragement as the prevailing mindset in the physics community, especially in the theoretical physics community, takes Einstein’s theory religiously, and the mathematical framework of relativity is weaved into the entire edifice of particle physics and cosmology. It is my sincere wish that Dr. Ranzan is not discouraged by my rejection to his manuscript in his pursuit of a revolutionary theory.”

Then, in a subsequent review, he stated, “I will not change my recommendation.”

What follows is my forwarded response to two issues raised by this Reviewer.

 

The Response

Let me address the two misconceptions the Reviewer seems to harbor with respect to DSSU relativity.

(1) The Reviewer believes (as stated in his earlier review) that I have “simply used the result of Einstein’s SR, changed the appearance of the equations and claimed big discoveries” and in this way came up with DSSU relativity. This is just not so. In fact, it is not possible, within standard physics, to go from an Einstein Special Relativity (ESR) equation to the corresponding DSSU equation.

(2) The Reviewer is under the impression that I am attempting to invalidate the ESR theory. This, too, is just not so.

I will demonstrate, below, that DSSU subsumes ESR. I will demonstrate that DSSU is a broader theory than ESR by showing that ESR equations can be derived from the corresponding DSSU equation but it is not possible to go the other way. That is, within the restrictions imposed by ESR it is not possible to expand the equations to become DSSU equations.

DSSU Encompasses ESR

Both DSSU and ESR are rooted in the basic Lorentz transformations. The Lorentz transformations ensure the property of “light speed invariance” —the measured speed of light in a vacuum will always be constant regardless of the uniform motion of the light-source or the observer.

Starting with the Lorentz transformations (at the top of the Flowchart 1, below), DSSU theory uses them to derive the “extended Lorentz transformation equations” [detailed in the Paper]; ESR theory starts with the same transformations and uses them to derive the equations of special relativity.

DSSU theory uses the “extended Lorentz transformation equations” to derive the relativity equations in which velocities are aether-referenced. I’ll come back to this in a moment.

The ESR equations are derived from the basic Lorentz transformations applied to abstract space. The contentious assumption is that aether does not exist (or that aether is simply not detectable). All inertial velocities, then, must necessarily be relative and there can be no such thing as an aether-referenced speed —or as Einstein would say, no preferred frame of reference. This immediately precludes any attempts to derive DSSU equations from within ESR. And so, contrary to the Reviewer’s interpretation of the Paper, it is not possible to change the ESR equations into DSSU equations. The aether-referenced restriction prevents it and leads such attempt immediately to a “dead end” (as shown in 2nd column of the flowchart).

Now to show how the DSSU equations can be used to derived the ESR equations. An important point to keep in mind is that in DSSU relativity there are no reference-frame restrictions. One is free to formulate the equations using aether-referenced motion (absolute inertial motion) or, if one chooses, using relative motion (apparent inertial motion).

 

 
 

Flowchart 1. The Lorentz transformations can be properly applied to aether space (left column) or to abstract space (right-hand column). The chart shows that Einstein’s relativity equations can be derived from an aether theory. Consequently, the domain of DSSU Relativity encompasses the restrictive domain of Special Relativity.

 

As stated earlier, the DSSU relativity equations are derived from the “extended Lorentz transformation equations.” Since the extended transformations are aether-referenced, so too are the DSSU equations. The simple procedure, to convert the latter to observer-referenced equations (relative-motion equations), is to assume that one of the inertial frames is at rest. For instance, Observer in frame A considers himself motionless, thus uA is replaced by zero. Then the motion of frame B becomes the relative motion; and so uB is replaced by u. ... Absolute velocities are simply replaced by apparent velocities. This conversion is carried out in Figures 5, 9, 11, and 12 of the Paper. The result in each case is a pure relative-motion expression (identical in appearance and performance to the Special Relativity equivalent).

The key that acts as a link between absolute-motion formulation and relative-motion formulation is the velocity-conversion expression (equation 4-7 shown in Flowchart 2, below). If we apply a strict definition, then this conversion key can only be used in the loop of the lower half of the flowchart and acts to reverse the conversion described in the above paragraph. The key essentially recaptures and verifies the original DSSU equation. The key cannot be applied to the ESR dashed area of the flowcharts; simply because of the aether-reference prohibition. (If one removes the prohibition, then one immediately removes the “dead end”.)

 

 
 

Flowchart 2.   The DSSU conversion KEY (yellow highlight) is the link between any ESR equation and the corresponding DSSU equation. This absolute-to-relative velocity transformation equation appears as eqn (4-7) in the Journal article. Substitute “the KEY” into any Einstein relativity equation to obtain the corresponding DSSU equation.

 

In the Manuscript, I apply “the key” to velocity transformation, length contraction, momentum, and kinetic energy. The subsummation of ESR by DSSU could not be clearer!

In the above demonstration I’m not even asking anyone to believe in the actual existence of aether-space. Purely on the basis of the mathematics, the argument is sound and the conclusion remains that one theory is obviously broader than the other.

ESR is a theory for abstract space, a theory of apparent motion and effects.

DSSU is a theory for quasi-physical space, a theory of absolute-and-apparent motion and effects.

The point of the argument is that the ESR expressions can be derived from an aether theory —from DSSU relativity. One simply assumes (or concludes from certain historical experimental evidence, as Einstein probably did) that absolute motion, for whatever unknown reason, is undetectable. Then uA and uB must be replaced by apparent velocities. If the observer is in frame A then uA is replaced by zero and uB is replaced by relative velocity u. (However, this does not necessarily mean uA = 0. The uA and uB variables are still reserved for the aether-referencing of the inertial situation.) An apparent-type relativity equation follows immediately from the DSSU expression. And that equation is identical to ESR! —yet nowhere did I start my argument with an ESR equation.

And most importantly, DSSU is a broader theory and has more applications since its domain encompasses both relative inertial motion and absolute inertial motion.

The Non-Merger of the Relative and the Absolute

There is one other feature of DSSU relativity I would like to discuss. It is related to the fact that DSSU aether is an interactive aether —it causes intrinsic relativistic effects.

In the normal course of having another one of my research papers reviewed, one of the referees stated that, “They [relativistic aether theories] all seem to fail due to trying to merge two different and conflicting paradigms, namely, the relativistic and the absolute.” ... I reflected on the soundness of his assessment; and then it struck me. I could now understand the probable explanation of why I have not run into any major problems (not as yet, anyway); my theory does not merge the relativistic and the absolute. The two are kept separate and the symbols make the separation explicit. ...

As an aside, another vastly simplifying feature of the DSSU Worldview is that time has no independent existence; which means, there is no absolute time to complicate the relative-versus-absolute issue. Time is an abstraction by which we compare changes or motions of anything —anything whatsoever. Motion is real; time is merely an abstracted aspect of motion (change). ... Aristotle and Heraclitus were right, everything is motion.

My present revised paper emphasizes the distinction between “the relativistic and the absolute.” I have added the following paragraphs.

“However, it is important to realize that each ESR equation is not a special case of the corresponding DSSU equation. It is by no means obvious, but both equations give the same answer; they must because they both represent the same observed or observable phenomena —such as apparent velocity, apparent length contraction, apparent time dilation and apparent momentum, and so on.”

“Then it must be that both relativistic expressions are general. The DSSU expressions always use aether-referenced velocities and, within its domain, DSSU relativity is general. The ESR expressions always use purely relative velocities and, within its domain ESR, too, is completely general.”

The DSSU relativity theory, although it is a relativistic-aether theory, does not merge the absolute (defined by the aether) with the relative (the apparent). Instead of merging the two domains, it uses simple rules and “the key” (see Flowchart 2, above) to switch from one domain to the other.

Why is all this so important? ... It means there is no need to claim that ESR is wrong. (Saying that a theory is incomplete does not make it wrong.) It means that within its domain, within its sphere of applicability, there is nothing wrong with Einstein’s special relativity.

In conclusion, with the various additions and corrections that have been made in the latest revision the Paper has emerged much stronger. Furthermore, a number of important changes should dispel any notion that I am attempting to invalidate the ESR theory.

A reassessment would be appreciated.

Sincere thanks,
