Subject: Scientific dialogue must be constructive

I agree with Gareth Evans, scientific dialogue must be constructive, if this is not the case, and if the Baconian method is not followed, what happens is an endless exchange of argument, if people do not accept refutation they are not scientists. I find the endless “criticism” of ECE by the same individuals for years to be petty minded and absurdly unscientific because it is a criticism of well known geometry. Other people who use the same geometry are not criticised, so that settles the matter, it is petty personal animosity. The physics and chemistry are never even mentioned and computer algebra is ignored. This is why the AIAS Board has decided not to dialogue with these individuals, they are not acting in the scientific spirit and never have done. This has generated intense resentment and ill feeling, and the matter has gone to a barrister’s letter.

There is also the following constraint on the connection (discovered in 2007 by computer algebra). If a symmetric connection is used in

D sub mu T sup kappa mu nu = R sub mu sup kappa mu nu

then T vanishes but the R does not vanish in general for the same symmetric connection. All solutions of the Einstein field equation incorrectly use a symmetric connection. These new constraints were not known in Einstein’s time.

In a generally covariant unified field theory, canonical field densities must be used for each sector, notably electromagnetism. So the fundamental meaning of the a index is revealed in this way. The electromagnetic field (as usually defined) is found by volume integration over the field density, as in eq. (15). The most fundamental nature of the electric and magnetic fields is therefore found by applying the principle of general relativity. It is in fact well known in electromagnetism. that there is a classical density of electromagnetic radiation. The complex circular representation, when superimposed on the Cartesian reprsentation, produces a non-Minkowski spacetime in classical electromagnetism, giving the fundamental B(3) field.

Fwd: Work hard for the Welsh Language

In view of the UN report alerting people to the danger of extinction of this ancient British Celtic language I would like to make an appeal to readers all over the world (in the US and Canada, Australia, New Zealand and in Patagonia for example) to establish new schools and a university in the language. It should be taught also in England and Scotland, because it is their own classical Celtic language, the language of Buddug (Boadicea) and Caradog (Caratacus). It is taught at Oxford and Cambridge as a classical language. I urge the Assembly to set up gealtacht type areas in Wales to safeguard the language, to prohibit immigration into such areas unless the immigrant can prove that they are either native speakers or have an O level in the Welsh language and literature. There should be a cap on the price of housing so the native young people have a chance of a decent life in the Welsh language. Welsh is a language which crystallized from British Celtic, a Indo European language. Proto Celtic crystallized out of proto Indo European about ten thousand years ago, probably in the Iberian Peninsula, and spread over about 80% of all Europe. The DNA of the Irish and Welsh is identical it is the Atlantic Modal haplotype and closely similar to the English and Scots, so they all shared the same very ancient, ten thousand year old, language at one time, which crystallized out to Goidelic Celtic (Irish, Gaelic and Manx) and Brythonic / Gaulish Celtic (of which Welsh and Breton are still spoken, and of which Cornish has been revived). Other branches are Cymric (spoken in northern Britain up to the Great Glen and very similar to Welsh) and Gaulish (of which I understand a few placenames in France and Belgium because I am a native Welsh speaker). It would be a catastrophe if the great classical Celtic family of languages, which once spread all over Europe from Ireland to Anatolia, became extinct. Chapels and churches in Britain (which ensured teh survival of the language) should also be much more rigorously protected, it is distasteful to see them on sale and demolished. This is like selling the Parthenon for its marble. Make every effort to learn the language, make sure your children learn it and speak it too, natives and expatriates alike.

Fwd: Criticisms of Wikipedia

Subject: Criticisms of Wikipedia
Date: Fri, 27 Feb 2009 03:30:40 EST

I think that the current wikipedia entries on ECE theory and G. ‘t Hooft should be heavily criticised by the new wave of ECE physicists all over the world, who should put the record straight, that the long term editor of “Foundations of Physics” and “Foundations of Physics Letters”, and still the editor of a book series running to three hundred volumes, Prof. Alwyn van der Merwe, fully SUPPORTS ECE theory, as do about half of physicsts worldwide. ‘t Hooft has a record of grotesque animosity towards others and myself, and of gross bias against ECE theory. he has no right at all to write an editorial to “overturn” the views of van der Merwe or anyone else. ‘t Hooft’s views are just empty bias. This can be done by making the ‘t Hooft entry very controversial by repeated criticism, and the ECE entry very controversial by repeated criticism. Our barristers can also ask wikipedia to remove the ECE entry, which is defamatory and misrepresentative. If the standard fringe is going to play games with student level mathematics, this should be the response. In the meantime the industrial work of AIAS should proceed as usual.

The language is in danger of extinction due to apathy and uncontrolled immigration of people who care nothing for it. Teh Assembly must introduce emergency measures to protect it. I am among the last who can speak the Silurian dialect of the Swansea Valley, going back to Caradog (Caratacus).

Kerry might like to look at the studies by Ken Russell for films on Elgar 1962 and 2002, by googling youtube + Elgar + Russell. The clips are set in Malvern (from the British Celtic “Moel Faran”). These hills are very similar to the South Wales hills and this is how Russell went about a biographical film.

This is a remarkable piece of history by Kerry, an I am very glad that he mentioned Cecil Monk, who was a great friend of mine at the EDCL and who fully deserves to be remembered. There are billions of tons of coal in South Wales alone, (steam coal and anthracite), and this is sufficient for hundreds of years of energy, petrochemical manufacture and so on. CO2 etc. can be scrubbed using the catalysts developed by John Meurig Thomas and his group at the EDCL. New mining techniques are safe and efficient, and colliers would be highly paid, and heavily protected against dust, roof falls, and fire damp. Mansel was also influenced by Aldous Huxley and Bertrand Russell, he had a portrait of Russell in his study and a bust of Faraday. On the wall was the first infra red spectrum ever take, in a research group at Cambridge where Mansel worked for his Ph. D. Mansel’s supervisr was Bury, who proposed a model of the atom essentially the same as that by Bohr. MMD write that Bury had a sharp intellect, and studied the Dirac equation, among the first chemists to do so. All my family were colliers for generations.

Dear Myron,

Please find below the latest page of the filmscript.

E= mc2 ?
?
?
?
?
?
Einstein is perhaps best know for his equation E = mc2, which shows that a small amount of mass can be converted into a vast amount of energy.?
E stands for energy, m is the mass and c stands for the speed of light.?
The speed of light is the fastest speed achievable and the speed of light squared is a vast number.?
Therefore the equation shows that when a small amount of mass or matter is converted into energy, a vast amount of energy is created as is seen in the atomic bomb. ?
?
?
?
?
In the nineteenth century two major breakthroughs were made which took chemistry and biology forward at a great rate.?
In chemistry Dalton, Davy and Faraday did much to show atoms existed, which allowed chemistry to develop and expand at ever increasing rates which did much to fuel the industrial revolution.?
In biology it was the work of Darwin who was born two hundred years ago in Shrewsbury, along with Alfred Wallace from Usk in Monmouthshire whose theories on ‘survival of the fittest’ led to an understanding of the theory of evolution which had been already considered by scientists for hundreds of years, including Darwin’s grandfather.?
Obviously this had implications for the power of the church and religious individuals were obviously going to oppose evolution and strive to maintain creationism as the only explanation for the ascent of man.?
Lord Kelvin opposed evolution on the grounds that evolution would require billions of years for the changes to animal and plant life to be incorporated, but Kelvin believed that the Sun could not shine for more than a few million years by chemical combustion.?
This is where the work of the Curies along with Frederick Soddy and Ernest Rutherford would come into play.?
Einstein’s famous equation E = mc2, would then be used to show that the Sun would easily be able to shine, for the billions of years needed for the effects of survival of the fittest to lead to the evolution, as is recorded in the fossil record. ?
?
?
?
?
Madam and Pierre Curie in Paris at the turn of the century did the important work of separating uranium and radium from pitchblende, from mines in Czechoslovakia.?
The Curies then supplied Soddy and Rutherford with radioactive materials to work on in McGill University in Canada.?
Here the chemist Soddy and the physicist Rutherford were able to observe the transmutation of elements for the first time and to discover that radioactive isotopes have a characteristic half life, the time which is taken for half the atoms of a particular isotope to undergo radioactive decay, into other elements.?
In 1904 Rutherford came to London to give a lecture at the Royal Institution, where he showed that the age of rocks could be determined by measuring how much radioactive decay had occurred since the rocks had been formed or crystallized.?
Uranium has a half life of around a billion years and over this time half the atoms would have decayed to form lead.?
Rutherford had simply measured the proportion of lead to uranium and related this to the known half life of uranium, to give the age of the rock samples.?
This gave a figure in the billion plus range for the oldest rock samples and showed the Earth had indeed been around long enough for evolution to take place.?
Furthermore, Einstein’s 1905 equation E = mc2, was able subsequently to explain that through nuclear reactions and transmutations of the elements such a vast amount of energy was created that the Sun, was easily able to shine steadily for the time required, to support life on Earth for this evolution to take place. ?
?
?
?
?
Soddy returned to Britain in 1903 to work with Lord Ramsay at University College, London where he was able to show alpha particles are the nuclei of helium emitted during nuclear fission, the splitting in two of unstable nuclear isotopes.?
?
Soddy also showed subsequently that elements could exist in alternative forms which he called isotopes.?
Soddy also went on to show that alpha particle emission causes an element to shift two spaces to the left in the periodic table and the emission of a beta particle causes the element to shift one space to the right.?
Thus Soddy could be called the world’s first successful alchemist. In 1904 Soddy left London to continue his great work at the University of Glasgow.?
Soddy’s work is of great importance in chemical physics and society, as described by Aberystwyth’s Professor Mansel Davies in his 1992 article in the ‘Annals of Science’, entitled ‘Frederick Soddy: The Scientist as Prophet’.?
His work greatly influenced H. G. Wells, particularly concerning the use of radioactivity to make atomic weapons which is considered in Well’s books.?
Likewise H. G. Well’s writings were well liked by Soddy.?
Interestingly, Mansel Davies wrote a book on the history of science at the request of Wells.?
Soddy studied chemistry initially in Aberystwyth, before continuing his studies at Oxford. ?
This connection was celebrated in Aberystwyth when the radiation laboratory set up by Dr. Cecil Monk at the Edward Davies Chemical Laboratories was named ‘The Soddy Laboratory’.?
Sadly Dr. Monk who had lived at Borth outside Aberystwyth for many years passed away early in 2009. ?
Soddy’s work with Ramsay is again celebrated in Aberystwyth, through Myron’s award of a University College London, Ramsay Fellowship which Myron used to finance his researches in Aberystwyth.?
H. G. Wells was also well regarded in Aberystwyth and its former head of chemistry Professor John Meurig Thomas ended his book on Michael Faraday’s life at the Royal Institution by quoting Well’s work.?
Well’s work used science to predict what the future could be like and how the folly of man could lead to anarchy. ?
This is the theme of the great film ‘Things to Come’ in which after the collapse of civilizations, petrol needed to be refined from coal to allow planes to fly again: putting coal mines into the front of new power struggles. ?
The pit shown in the 1936 film is the Griffin Colliery in Blaina, which was closed due to problems with too much gas in its coal seams. ?
Later the colliery became entirely covered with the earth extracted from the

nearby Rose Heyworth Colliery, in order to get to the coal underground.?
Now nearly every pit in South Wales has gone, but the colliery shown in the 1936 film is still there hidden beneath its tomb of earth: ?
A time capsule for future generations to uncover. ?
?
?
?
?
When Soddy the alchemist left London for Glasgow, he was replaced as Lord Ramsay’s assistant at University College London in 1904 by Otto Hahn the German chemist.?
Hahn in 1905 went on to work with Rutherford at McGill University in Canada. Following in Soddy’s footsteps, Hahn would become a major figure in nuclear chemical physics in the first half of the twentieth century and at the outbreak of World War 2 produced a paper describing how the uranium atom could be split by bombardment with neutrons.?
This was a key experiment in producing both nuclear energy and creating an atomic bomb, through the process of fission and gave Hahn the 1944 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.?
At the outbreak of War, Niels Bohr was in New York and on reading Hahn’s Berlin paper recognized that splitting the uranium nucleus could lead to a chain reaction which could release the power described by the equation E = mc2, as a war winning weapon. ?
Bohr warned the American government about it before returning to Copenhagen, where he would eventually meet up with his old friend Heisenberg at a time when Denmark was under occupation. ?
?
?
?
?
Hahn had written a book on radiochemistry during his time at Cornell University before returning to Germany. ?
In a twist of fait, Hahn managed to keep out of the Nazis atomic bomb project, but his knowledge of radiochemistry described in his book was used by the Americans to achieve the separation of the isotopes of uranium during the Manhattan Project. ?
?
?
?
?
After the war the world’s knowledge of the nature of the atom had come on in leaps and bounds and major laboratories were founded such as Aldermaston in Britain and Los Alamos in the USA, in addition to their equivalents in France and Russia.?
It was soon recognized that fusing hydrogen atoms as occurs in the Sun and stars would release a thousand times more energy in a nuclear bomb then the fission of uranium and plutonium would do.?
In the space of a decade both Russia and America would master the process of fusion which is the secret behind the Sun’s longevity and is the source of energy for life on Earth. ?

Fwd: Final Posting from AIAS on Sci Topics

Subject: Final Posting from AIAS on Sci Topics
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:37:40 EST

Gareth Evans has prepared an excellent overview rebuttal posting for ECE Sci Topics and I approved it. It states that the pseudoscientific comments of the site, mainly by friend Bruhn, are worthless because they distort and misrepresent science itself. GJE points out that Bruhn has been essentially ignored for years (comparitive impact table on _www.aias.us_ (http://www.aias.us) ). The so called “standard model of gravitational physics” is obsolete and indeed pseudoscientific nonsense. The standard electromagnetic sector fares little better, it is just an incorrect U(1) symmetry. Several groups effectively inferred B(3): Horwitz et al. (1989), Barrett, Lehnert et al., Harmuth et al., and myself. B(3) like theory has been published in the Phys. Rev (Horwitz at al., 1992) but the paper by Farahi and myself on B(3) in 1992 was accepted for publication by Phys. Rev. E, but then censored. Subsequently B(3) has been published by myself and others in numerous refereed papers in numerous journals. The twentieth century was indeed a dark age for physics as pointed out by Steve Crothers, and GJE points out that ECE reduces to all the equations of natural philosophy. Many scholars have now shown that ECE is correct mathematically in all detail. Crude censorship will not work, one cannot stop the march of ideas.

Subject: 127(14) : Origin of Angular Momentum in Torsion
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:19:22 EST

This note is probably the final one for paper 127 and I will go ahead and write it up now as a paper on the origin of angular momentum as an integral of torsion over a hypersurface. The first Cartan structure equation is simplified to eq. (5) when the connection is anti-symmetric, as it is from first principles of Riemann geometry. So Cartan geometry can be thought of as a development of the anti-symmetric connection of spacetime. In paper 126 it was shown that the conservation of the angular momentum of spacetime explains all known planar orbits with using any of the concepts of the obsolete standard model. This includes the orbits of galaxies. The Einstein field equation is wholly unable to explain the orbits of galaxies without the invocation of druids – dark matter.
