Is good to hear that another former NASA scientist can finally speak free. Is interesting the fact that if you want to express your ideas you must be a FORMER employee of NASA.....you know...like in a fascist regime. :)

"Is interesting the fact that if you want to express your ideas you must be a FORMER employee of NASA....."

Lets face it, NASA is an intelligence agency....No different from the CIA, FBI, or the NSA.

Who knows what goes on behind close doors during a job interview.

Potential NASA employees may have to signed all kinds of non-disclosure forms and other legal junk.....

I am thankful for every last person who speaks up and points out 'inconvenient' data that contravenes the status quo. Below is the url for a concise, clearly written article that takes to task the enshrining of Einstein and his 'elimination' of the aether. It also points out the same 'spin/rotation has anti-grav effects' as do TEM papers, etc.

http://www.thunderbolts.info/
thunderblogs/thornhill.htm

All I can say is thank goodness that TEM and people like Thornhill, et al, are looking at actual data instead of galloping about on self-generated, 'gedankenexperimenten' mind-ponies.

Delightfully, the HD/Plasma Cosmology model says that HD trans-light (a.k.a. 'warp') speeds are part of how the Universe works, so... no speed limits! Woohoo! [Cue Van Halen; 'I Can't Drive 65' ;o3]

Yeah, in this days you sign a non-disclosure ageement even if you r a beta tester for EA games.

But if you find out that the guys of EA have purchasing 20 german shepherds and shot them down with real bullets just to see how they died for helped the animation team to do a better work what do you do?
Keep this secret just because you have sign a paper?

This is bull

Nondisclosure paper or not - nothing compares to just having b*lls of steel. Its in our heritage as a country (well, was).

marsandro said...

Hi T'Zairis,

It just so happens that I am the
guy who reported to the American
Philosophical Society back in 1974
that the 1905 photoelectric paper
"by Einstein" was in actual fact
a plagiarism of Charles F. Brush's
second paper of 1880.

There was a brief uproar, then silence.

Typical.

But what else do we know?

1. Einstein actually ripped off his ideas
from his wife, Marlena, who later divorced
him for it. (TEM website, with the evidence
presented.)

2. The math for Special Relativity was
executed by Minkowski, not Einstein.

Einstein couldn't follow it.

3. The math for General Relativity was
executed by Riemann, not Einstein.

Einstein finally said, "I don't understand it
(Relativity) anymore."

He had already publicly declared the math
for Relativity Theory to be---and I quote---
"incomprehensible."

And last but not least:

4. Every single postulate of both Special
and General Relativity has been utterly
destroyed by a myriad of concise and
absolutely unambiguous experiments, all
well replicated.

One wonders why people still cling to it....

Hasn't Dr. Gunter Nimtz made his point well
enough yet?

Sheesh....

P.S.: Hey David,

"Balls of Steel," suspended between parallel
bars with string, are exactly how you can
demonstrate why longitudinal waves are
superluminal, while waves with nonzero
transverse components have what we call
a "characteristic propagation velocity."

Newton had the idea pegged...

...and didn't even know it....

:-)

JimO said...

Sigh. Would it surprise anyone to learn that the man in question is NOT a 'former NASA scientist'? NEVER worked for NASA? This doesn't reflect on the merits of his claims -- see my home page www.jamesoberg.com for context -- but does on the carelessness of press coverage and the drooling credibility of the target audience.

He is a PhD astrophysicist on the Harvard faculty who helped build a science instrument donated to a NASA scientist, worthy labors -- that may be the source of the misreporting -- but in terms of understanding spaceflight operations, he starts from the same point that anyone does.

Mike Bara said...

Thank you for the clarification.

T'Zairis Shirzah said...

Marsandro--

It's cool that you reported on the Einstein plagiarism in 1974! I think that part of the cling-to-Einstein-like-a-limpet mindset has to do with not wanting to appear foolish in front of one's peers and/or having one's 'life work' completely invalidated from the get-go.

However, I think that there is another thing in play here, and that is the sequestering of advanced technology and the HD physics behind it. If people are preoccupied with constantly having to 'fix' Einstein, they won't be asking inconvenient questions about spin-boosted orbits, etc., and all remains safely hidden. Also, if they are stuck in a befuddled Einsteinian headspace, they are not going to think things like trans-light velocities are possible. When one opens the HD physics door, then T. Townsend Brown, Antoine Priore and Plasma cosmology start making a whole lot of sense. Once that happens, it then becomes a matter of folks asking, 'Who knew about this new physics/anti-grav stuff, and when did they know it?' That question will be followed by the inevitable next one: 'If this has been known about for so long, why have we and the planet all been condemned to horrendous suffering just to gratify the whims of a few greedy moral bankrupts?'

At any rate, as time passes, more and more data is amassed that puts the lie to Einstein, which in my book, is a good thing. I know I run across more 'serious problems with Relativity' stuff now than I did say, five years ago. When things finally pop, a lot of libraries are going to be getting rid of a lot of science books...

Peace,

T'Zairis

Shamus said...

I get the uproar on the Einstein plagiarism case... But i wonder why Charles F. Brush's paper was dismissed and not taken serious? Are we talking like word for word plagiarism? This seems like something that would really distroy the crediable nature or any scientist... are we as culture not allowed to question Einstein becasue we are not allowed to look at the possiablity of faster then light speed travel...even time travel even?

marsandro said...

Hi Shamus,

It was precisely the negative
response to Brush's work that'
allowed it's burial deep enough
in the literature to allow it to
be plagiarized in the first place.

Einstein doubtless came across the patents
of Brush while working in the Swiss Patent
Office, and became interested in Brush's works.

Einstein would have discovered the 1880
paper through an index.

Since the paper was 25 years old, and there
was no way for anyone to check the origins
of "Einstein's" paper, it was custom made
for plagiarizing.

People's attitudes on "quantum phenomena"
had changed over the previous 25 years.
While Brush was practically egged off the
podium, Einstein was hailed as a "great
genius." Talk about a double slap in the
face for Brush.

It was the summer of 1974, and I was at
the Centenary Library (alma mater of Van
Cliburn, by the way), looking up papers
by Einstein, as it was my protocol never
to criticize what I had not at least read.
(Too bad none of my physics professors ever
thought like that.) I was reading the 1905
photoelectric paper, when I realized that
the text seemed familiar.

I photocopied the paper on an old (but new
then) Xerox 1000 Mega-Dinosaur Copier, and
took it to the house. I then pulled down my
collected works of Brush (gathered from the
library at Texas A&M a year or so earlier)
and started flipping pages.

First paper...no match. Second paper...

"SON OF A !@#$%&*!"

I *immediately* composed a letter to the
American Philosophical Society in Cleveland.
I couldn't get it to the Post Office fast
enough, and I had a 429 4V Gran Torino.

I received a reply within about ten days,
expressing shock at what I had shown them.
I gave them the appropriate citations so they
could see it for themselves.

It hit the news within a few days.

As I said...uproar...then silence.

I think the ADL got involved, but I only
speculate.

Einstein basically paraphrased a couple of
sentences, and quoted the rest right out
of Brush's paper.

That would get a graduate student kicked
clean the blazes out of school.

And all these years we've all been made to
bow down to the golden image of Saint
Einstein?

Let's just say Einstein is one of my pet
hates.

So...every time some schmuck begins an
explanation of physics with "Einstein said,"
I have to suppress my Zeussian tendency
to want to put a quantum vacuum powered
lightning bolt up his lower posterior anatomy.

And that's not even taking into account the
maligned works of Kantor, Birge, and Miller
anciently, leave alone Chiao, Wang, Hau and
the redoubtable Gunter Nimtz in more recent
times.

The superluminal? We're SWIMMING IN IT!

Just google those names and get a load.

P.S.: Oh---T'Zairis,

If you haven't seen the collected works of
The Sourcebook Project of Dr. William R.
Corliss, you are in for a treat.

Talk about putting Einstein in his place....

Also see Nature, July 11, 1964, for a paper
by Dr. Erwin J. Saxl concerning experiments
with an electrically charged torque pendulum.

Note especially what he says about the
principle of equivalence...and the fact
that he and Einstein were post-doctoral
students together (so Saxl knew the great
plagiarist personally).

;-))

GENEVA (AP) — It has been called an Alice in Wonderland investigation into the makeup of the universe — or dangerous tampering with nature that could spell doomsday.

Tarius said...

@marsandro
Could you give a link to this second paper you talk about. After doing a bit of searching I havent been able to locate it on the net.
I would really like to read it myself.

T'Zairis Shirzah said...

Marsandro--

Looking forward to getting acquainted with Wm. Corliss and Saxl. I've had some stupid stuff I had to take care of at work the last couple of weeks, but I will soon have a spot of time for some more 'digging around'.

I think a lot of the problem with Einstein's 'enshrinement' is that the people doing the initial enshrining didn't want to get caught being groupies rather than serious researchers who thoroughly vetted sources. Those who followed the original EFBs (Einsteinian Fan-Boys) got indoctrinated and trained to accept Einstein without examining the origins of his work too closely-- Sekhmet forbid they should discover their mentors were following an emperor-with-no-clothes, or that their mentors' egos were more important than accurate attribution and testable theory.

I have also been chuckling over the fact that you have apparently been reading all the 1,000 Names of Sekhmet on my little tatterdemalion blog :0)))! There are a good many of them that I conjured up strictly for my own (and Sekhmet's) amusement, as many of the Sekhmet sites on the web are boringly over-respectful, especially for a Hyperdimensional Big-Cat-Goddess with an 11-D scratching-post...

Peace,

T'Zairis

marsandro said...

Hi Tarius,

As far as I know, the papers
of Charls F. Brush (the first)
are not available online. You
actually have to pull down the
physical journals at a library
that has them.

I'll have to go look up the citation myself,
as it's been decades since I reread any of
those works. I used to do computer research
on his freefall data, but that was back in
the early 1970s.

Oh---interesting results, too.... :-)

Let me find that and post it for you.

Hi T'Zairis,

Oh, and yes!---I have indeed been reading
those JUICY names of Sekhmet! I think this
one is especially appropriate:

999. Our Lady of Trans-Light-Speed Ballistic
Expulsion

Of course, I also like this one:

914. Subduer of Testosterone-Fuelled Meat-Puppets

Starborne said...

Speaking of Salellites.... Did anyone catch the name of the imaging system on the Rosetta probe that made the recent flyby? OSIRIS! Most curious indeed.

Mike Bara said...

Oh, you have no idea....

david nineteenpointfive said...

Clipped from wikipedia [apparently NASA isn't the only one with a fixation on Egyptian lore]:

"Rosetta is a European Space Agency-led robotic spacecraft mission launched in 2004 intended to study the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Rosetta consists of two main elements: the Rosetta space probe and the Philae lander. The spacecraft will also flyby and examine two asteroids on its way to the comet."

"The probe is named after the Rosetta Stone, which was instrumental in advancing modern understanding of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, as it is hoped the mission will help unlock the secrets of how our solar system looked before planets formed. The lander is named after the Nile island Philae where an obelisk was found that helped decipher the Rosetta Stone."

marsandro said...

It's that Egyptian theme
again.

Now you know why I keep
mentioning---

:-)

Hathor -- At the crux of all things Egyptian!

;-)

P.S.: And I suppose the "rock" being imaged
is known as (of course) "The Rosetta Stone?"

Is that the one with the little square
buildings that Hoagie was talking about
on Coast the other night?

:-)

T'Zairis Shirzah said...

Honestly, one would have to be a blind, anaerobic bacterium living under a rock on Pluto to miss the staggering 'coincidence' that everything we shoot into space and/or snap interplanetary pix with these days is named Orion/Osiris or ICIS/Isis or Phoenix (the Phoenix legend came from Egypt's Bennu Bird), or else it lands somewhere on an old Egyptian feast-day with the constellation of Orion at 33.3 degrees above the horizon! (That is, when the NASA Nazis are not shooting off Moon-mission bottle-rockets on Hitler's birthday...) I can't imagine that any outside observer with two brain cells to bang together could possibly miss the Ancient Egypt fetish that NASA seems to have, because they certainly don't seem to care to hide it all that well.

Marsandro--

Yes, 'testosterone-fueled meat-puppet' could definitely refer to our erstwhile fearless fuhrer in Sacramento...

Subscribing to the shamanic/magickal idea that naming something gives it power, I've tried to come up with some 21st Century titles and epithets for Sekhmet, so that Her thought-form can stand in opposition to nordic-elitist ritualistic bull. Since Sekhmet was the one Goddess who really did terrify both Egyptian Pharaohs and priests, I figured we might as well enlist Her energy to get our current planetary messes sorted out. I also decided that the whole Mars linkage needed to be openly honored, so Names 401-500 are the Martian ones:

403. Mistress of the Pentatope,
416. Mistress of Chryse Planitia,
486. She Who Is The Tetrahedron In The Orb,
494. High Priestess of Cydonia Mensae,

...and last but not least,

500. Mistress of the Great Face


Peace,

T'Zairis

Mike,

Are you able to reveal any clues as to why this rock is shaped like a diamond in the sky?

BTW, no matter how many spoilers are given by team Hoagy-Bara, I'm still buying the new book. If anything, those little minute details make it all the more exciting for most of us.

marsandro said...

Re:

And to think, who ever would have suspected
that Marie Shriver and Sekhmet could have so
much in common?

Subduing said meat-puppet, that is?

:-))))

P.S.: Supposedly, Schwarzenegger's personal
political views are truly conservative, but the
Subduer-In-Situ being of the Kennedy side of
the aisle, we see the comparison to Sekhmet
with ease....

T'Zairis Shirzah said...

Marsandro--

I don't know about Maria Shriver doing much subduing-- I remember an interview she gave wherein she admitted that she personally irons all of Arnold's tightie whities, because he has got some kind of German-precision-engineering thing going on with his underwear drawer. Supposedly, his mom always knife-creased his skivvies, and now its Maria's turn.

Fruit-of-the-Looms aside, I'm not happy with him because he nixed buying those firefighting tankers the State of California clearly needed after the 2001 wildfires. The result was that in the most recent conflagration, we still had no planes and people's homes burned. Then there's the whole issue of him slashing the State payroll and paying slave's wages to State employees because he has no real will to actually solve California's fiscal problems. Sekhmet forbid he should actually audit the State lottery, or take a closer look at what is going on with Tribal gaming contracts/monies.

'Conan the Governor' has not exactly been a California blockbuster, sad to say...

Peace,

T'Zairis

marsandro said...

Hi T'Zairis,

Hmmm...fascinating insights.

Well, one possibility---

Maybe the left-leaning politics is her price
for an ironing job. Quid pro quo, a Kennedy
specialty.

Just a guess on my part, of course. I'm over
two thousand miles away from the action,
and you're right there in the Californian
Sudetenland. I will certainly defer to your
point of view! :-)

:-)

Hathor -- Tonight's Political Commentator!

P.S.: Assuming Der Governator drives himself
to work each day, I suppose the thing about
the undies drawer adds a whole new twist to
the concept of Fahrvergnugen.

Then again, maybe the "twist" is what he's
trying to avoid....

Hmmmm....

Hi Tarius,

I would have trotted over to

you, but it seems they had some sort of
shelf collapse up on the second floor. The
whole thing is off limits for the moment.

They have Brush's works on-shelf, and that
is where I can pull up an index to get you
the pub data for the 1880 paper.

marsandro said...

Hi Starborne,

I am reminded of that song
from the Sgt. Pepper album:
"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds."

Supposedly, the "Lucy" part is a direct
reference to "Lucifer" (be that a metaphor
for whatever), and the "Diamonds In The Sky"
were once presumed to be some sort of
reference to drugs.

It now appears that the "diamonds in the sky"
are things like the comet/rock/whatever in
question.

Mike: isn't there an asteroid named Lucifer?
I know there is one named Apophis, and one
named Nemesis.

Anyway, it looks as if "Lucy In The Sky With
Diamonds" could just as well be describing
Lucifer and its companions.

Prescient Beatles?

P.S.: References to "Lucy In the Sky With

T'Zairis: you know anything about it?

:-)

Mike Bara said...

Yes there is Andro, 1930 Lucifer: http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=1930+Lucifer

And of course there is the famous and wonderful Larry Niven book about a comet hitting Earth, "Lucifer's Hammer."

Tarius said...

@marsandro

Take your time, its nice of you to find this for me.

I really would like to read it, they still teach Einstein in college as I went through physics and such not too long ago, wow if had had both papers back then Im sure the teahcer probably would have gotten angry at me or something. hahaha

If there is a possibility then I want to see it.

marsandro said...

Hi Tarius,

Ohhh, MAN could I ever tell you
some stories about what *I* faced
at the hands of physics professors
at even the *slightest* inference
that Einstein didn't "know it all!"

Or that Relativity was a total load of...
well, you know. :-)

Here are some classic examples:

1. "The speed of light is absolute, fixed
and immutable."

When pigs fly.

Counter evidence abounds: Kantor, Birge,
Miller, Harrington, Marinov, Chiao, Wang,
Hau and Nimtz, to name but a few.

And Nimtz, my man, is kicking a** and
taking names.

2. "Velocities do not add."

Even Kantor knew this was false, back in
the 1920s, and showed it clearly.

Several experiments have shown plainly that
velocities do indeed add. And we have to use
the Doppler formula, not the Lorentz formula.
Hint-hint....

The "systemmatic error" was on the part of
those who thought velocities did not add.
It has to do with the renormalization of "c"
to the local frame following absorption of
the light by glass during either reflection
or refraction. The experiment has to be
designed to overcome this defect. Kantor's
experiment was properly designed. So was
the one done by his anonymous protoge,
published in "New Scientist" in 1962.

The latter experiment is listed in Corliss's
Sourcebook Project. It's a paper entitled,
"Speed of Light Dependent on Source?"

The results were absoultely unequivocal.

The problem in Relativity is that neither
the Special nor the General theory can
distinguish a light beam of wavelength h
and velocity c from another light beam of
wavelength 2h and velocity 2c. It sees them
as being the same.

All classic Relativity experiments were done
in such a way as to agree with this oversight.

3. "Under Relativity, there is no privileged
viewpoint."

Or, all viewpoints are equally privileged,
IF the included physical space has uniform
properties (CATCH: meaning, that the
underlying quantum substrate has a uniform
structure; it sometimes does NOT).

I could go on, but you get the idea.
