12 Timeline and Consequence

Monday, June 14th, 2010

The analysis in which we have been engaged produces results that run directly counter to the core discoveries of physics in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Yet the analysis, after a decade of reading and research and discussions and arguments and presentations, appears sound. Where possible, quotes from the great names of physics have been included to back up points made. Most of what is presented in these pages was discovered independently, but not first.

What is more, the reader can verify most of what has been said and argued and quoted. These arguments, unlike those of modern theoretical physics, are within the ken of all rational, scientifically interested readers. In this book it has been a priority to reason cautiously and incrementally, with references where available, so as to convince any open-minded physicist to give the ideas a fair hearing and to check these claims for him or herself.

4 Light

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

The current model for the nature of light is one of those areas of modern physics where obfuscation is an integral part of the definition.

Light has the properties of a wave. It reflects and refracts. One of Newton’s arguments against the wave nature of light was that waves were known to bend around obstacles, while light travelled only in straight lines. This is the common observation that shadows are not entirely black.

Yet Newton’s contemporary Huygens[i] created wave theory in 1678 by (more…)
