Discovery of Source Document by Stuart Davies

December 31, 2012

This is great news, and many thanks and happy new year to my Morgan cousin Stuart Davies and all cousins in all directions! We must have a reunion soon in Craig y Nos Castle. This document means that all the generations of our family in the Morgan Awbrey line back to Prince Tewdwr Mawr are supported by source documents. This document took about six years to find and shows that Morgan ap Thomas ap Morgan y Garth was married to Angharad Bevan on 25th Feb. 1688 at St Cynog, Ystrad Gynlais. He was entered into the registry simply as Morgan Thomas, but the patronymic system was still in use. I give his correct name and title. Assuming that Morgan ap Thomas ap Morgan Y Garth was about 30 when he was married, he lived from about 1658 to 1749. His father Thomas ap Morgan ap John Y Garth lived from before 1610 to 26th June 1689, and was buried in Callwen on 27th June 1689. If he wishes, Sir Arthur Turner Thomas can complete the Garth line back to the point where it merges with the Awbrey line already on his excellent site “Celtic Royal Genealogy”. Our distinguished cousin Leonid Morgan worked out this Garth line a long time ago, but apparently he did not cite the source documents needed to authenticate the line. The latter have now all been discovered by Stuart Davies, Sir Arthur Turner-Thomas and myself. So our descent from the Princes and ancient British Kings is rigorously authenticated. This year I also discovered the only extant documents of Elizabeth Portrey of Ynys Cedwyn Hall (attached), proving beyond reasonable doubt that she did indeed live at Ynys Cedwyn Hall, and was the illegitimate daughter of Christopher Portrey, and in all probability, Gwenllian John, a servant at the Hall. Christopher Portey had the same rank as myself, Gentleman, or Squire, a member of the Gentry or untitled nobility. He inherited it, I earned it for distinguished service to science and education. The Ynys Cedwyn line also leads back to Prince Tewdwr Mawr, the ancestor of Queen Elizabeth and also her daughter in law, Sophie Countess of Wessex (formerly Sophie Rhys-Jones, a strong supporter of the Welsh language). Prince Tewdwr Mawr (Tudor the Great) was also the ancestor of Elizabeth Portrey of Ynys Cedwyn Hall, well known and very well liked in anecdote and reportage.

I have at last found one element of this, though I have not read the original document.

Listed on 25/2/1688, marriage of Angharad Bevan to Morgan Thomas at St Cynog’s church. Her Christian name was quite rare for that time. It was around 1800 that this Christian name became popular. It was fortunate that a record of it exists at all as the periods covered are 1686 to 1694 and then 1712 to the 20th century, but very fragmented for the early years of both periods. West Glamorgan Archives do not have the pre-1712 records.

Subject: Question for Rev Alun Brookfield, Vicar of Callwen

I am pleased to send you the Royal Celtic line of Y Garth which has been incorporated in Royal Celtic Genealogy on the net. You were kind enough recently to find us the burial record of Thomas Morgan (Thomas ap Morgan) at Callwen on 27th June 1689. This has been incorporated as attached. Would you be so kind as to advise me whether you have the burial record of his son Morgan Thomas (Morgan ap Thomas ap Morgan in the patronymic system then in use), who died in 1749, and married Angharad Bevan, perhaps in Callwen? I note that the Callwen records are in the West Glamorgan Archives file number GB 0216 P301 CW, from 1685 to 1971. As you see there are source documents on all the line except for Morgan Thomas. It is probable that he his birth, marriage and death entries are in St John the Baptist Callwen or St Cynog. Thank you kindly in anticipation. This is just for completion of my records.

234(9): Self Consistency and Interpretation of ECE/ Minkowski Cosmology

December 31, 2012

This note proves the self consistency of ECE / Minkowski cosmology and discusses its interpretation. As in all relativistic theories based on spacetime rather than space, the orbit is the infinitesimal line element itself and the orbit exists because of the geometry. The acceleration is derived from the geometry and is also a geometrical property. In the Newtonian point of view an anthropomorphic idea was introduced by Kepler, that there is a force of attraction between m and M. Newton did not know where this force came from, letter to Bentley and all that, (“pray do not ascribe that notion to me”, “inanimate brute force” and all that) all on the net these days so anyone can look up anything. Bentley was only asking Newton for an explanation that the latter just could not give, so Bentley got the treatment. This force had to be counterbalanced to keep the orbit stable. It is explained in detail here why the usual counterbalancing “force” does not exist. Many good textbooks recognize this fact. So in Newtonian dynamics the “force” would pull m into M. Newtonian dynamics collapses in a heap when it comes to galaxies, so does Einsteinian dynamics, but this ECE / Minkowski cosmology applies to all orbits and does not try to do more than is possible.

Great Interest in the Diary of www.aias.us

December 31, 2012

This is the weblog or “blog” of www.aias.us, found on the home page and also archived in the National Digital Collections of Britain and the States because I am a citizen of both countries. Feedback statistics on the blog have now been available for three years from Jan 1st 2010. For a high brow (sometimes technically very difficult) site it has made a phenomenal impact. It has been read 139,400 times in three years in one hundred and fifty one countries, led by Britain, the States and Canada. In 2010 there were 26,991 readings; in 2011 there were 41,027 readings, and in 2012 to date 71,383 readings. It is my private diary, not a forum, and as for any diary records my daily work and thoughts in areas of interest to me such as science, poetry, art, literature, genealogy and local affairs here in Wales, in both languages. I am not a one to forget or give up the supremely great Welsh language, (one form of the ancient British language, Brythonic Celtic), honed to perfection over six thousand years continuously. Many thanks to all who helped to set up this influential diary!

Summary of December 2012 to Date for www.aias.us

December 31, 2012

To date in December 2012 for www.aias.us there have been 96,400 hits, 17,888 distinct visits each of an estimated ten real visits on average, 64,307 page views, 12.59 gigabytes downloaded, 2,568 documents read from 102 countries led by US, Ukraine, Iran, Britain, Germany, Mexico, Canada, ……. As usual all the material on the site was read or heard throughout the world. These scientometrics are the most accurately kept in contemporary science and the attached file goes back to April 30th 2004 indicating a huge amount of interest from this sector: universities, institutes and similar. Note carefully that this sector is only abut 2% of the total interest, which is entirely unprecedented in the history of theoretical physics. As in my letter to the Royal Society last week, these data show that the ground root of professionals have accepted ECE theory almost unanimously, and by implication have rejected the standard ideas of physics almost completely. All my papers are in Google Scholar, including Spanish translations by Alex Hill, and they are all being archived in the National Collections in Britain and the States of leading websites. Recently a pattern has developed of complete site downloads, i.e. spiders being used on individual computers to download the entire www.aias.us site. The refereeing system of standard physics has been rejected almost entirely in favour of this new open source system. Each UFT paper is carefully checked for human error before being posted, and then the readership decides on the quality of each paper. If it is good they read it. This month the papers on LENR (low energy nuclear reactions) are making a big impact on both site and blog. LENR is a commercial reality, a very valuable source of energy. All this is great news for AIAS, but bad news for the old physics system, because it is being rejected by entire professions at the ground root level. Our mercilessly accurate scientometrics show this conclusively. The media is therefore turning out obsolete physics, much to the detriment of science.

Lord Clark’s “Civilization”

December 30, 2012

Happy New Year to Alex Labounsky, retired Chief Engineer at The Boeing Company with whom I have corresponded for many years. “Civilization” (BBC mid sixties) is indeed a high point of culture and has never been surpassed. All the episodes are now on “Youtube”. Kenneth Clark was a Scot and spent his holidays on Mull from which he often made the boat trip over to Iona. He also produced a renowned book on Leonardo da Vinci. He starts his programmes with a Viking ship, with its ornate carved artwork, switches to one of the ships in an Oslo Museum and then to Iona and the Book of Kells, the great masterpiece of the insular style. I saw the series on TV now and again as I was studying for my finals, and after graduating in 1971 bought the book. I never tire of listening to the series on youtube. I lectured on the Book of Kells to a class arranged by Prof. J. O. Williams at Aberystwyth. I work now in exactly the same way as those sixth century intellectuals of the age of the Ancient British and Irish Saints, having rejected the modern university system in Wales as irrelevant. They were called saints but of course emerged from an immensely ancient and rich druidical intellectual tradition. This is at least five thousand five hundred years old, known from the age of the yew trees in St. Cynog (Llan Gynog) in Defynnog near Brecon. These were planted about 5,500 years ago and the later Llan (from the Latin cella) was placed inside them. The Normans just added to the Llan. The same is true of Llan Giwg, dedicated to my ancestral cousin Ciwg Gyffes Sant, St. Ciwg the Confessor, a close relative of my ancestral cousin Dewi Sant, both being descended from Brychan Brycheiniog (attached).

Bernini’s David may be of interest to art students and historians out there. As I once walked up the grand steps of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, I met up with the distinguished Sir Kenneth Clark, who was leaving and was the host and narrator of BBC’s excellent program, “Civilization” which was repeated/rerun on PBS. He impressed me then, and still does, as a most cultured and learned scholar. It was a memorable encounter for me to say the least. As a point of reference and comparison, I know that the undergraduate course, “Contemporary Civilization” at Columbia University in the City of New York provides a valuable framework of understanding and appreciation for college students.— On Mon, 12/24/12, EMyrone@aol.com <EMyrone@aol.com> wrote:

I vividly remember first seeing this in the BBC TV programmes and book “Civilization” by Kenneth Clark, who contrasted this balanced fierceness with Michelangelo’s static rendering in Florence. This sculpture must surely be influenced by the Discobolus of Miron, in the severe or early Greek style, but in Bernini’s own magnificent rendering. I think that this is in St. Peter’s in Rome, of which Bernini was the architect for some years, filling it with many masterpieces.

Inch Kenneth

December 29, 2012

This is a small island off Mull named after the Irish St Cainnech (Kenneth, about 515 to 600 A. D.) who studied with St Cadog in Llancarfan and was ordained there in 545 A. D. He was therefore a contemporary of my ancestral cousin Dewi Sant, St David, the patron saint of Wales, and the leading intellectual of the insular movement in ancient Britain, influencing Ireland. Cainnech travelled to St Colum Cille (Columba) on Iona and was regarded as another leading intellectual of that time. The Book of Kells was scribed on Iona, but according to legend it was thrown into the sea by my Uncle Olaf, (whose strong point was gold, not writing), and washed ashore minus its cover. The ink used was so strong that it is still visible today in nearly the original colours. Obviously these were waterproof. It finished up in Ceanannas (Kells) and then was transferred to Trinity College Dublin. I saw the original several times in the Library of TCD. IBM made an exact facsimile of it using advanced computer techniques. It is beyond value but insured for about a hundred million pounds. According to legend (half fact) thousands of ancient Celtic crosses on Iona were destroyed and thrown into the sea during the reformation, but it may be possible to investigate some by fishing them out with modern techniques if they are indeed there. Kenneth Clark begins his TV series “Civilization” on Iona (all on youtube).

Euclidean Fraesod (Pancakes)

December 29, 2012

Pleasure, it is true! My grandmother Martha Jane Jones (nee Newlands) used to make fraesod (pancakes) for me in this same house, and inferred the most accurate value of apple pie.

When I was reading the Pembrokeshire historical journals last month……..Mention was made that because so many of the boys became sailors in the 16/17th Centuries (something like 1 in 4) …. children were taught a lot of Astronomy and Maths including Euclidian Geometry. They were taught most of this not in school but by their grandmothers! What with having identified James Combe Newlands, the mariner, as our ancestor it made me think of you. Then again, there is also Carl Jung’s theory of the Collective Unconscious. Thank you for your inspiring message about such a moving experience you had. Vivienne
