The Young Thomas

August 31, 2014

When he was twenty years old Dylan Thomas spent two or three weeks in Donegal just after publishing “Eighteen Poems”. Among the poems he wrote in Donegal were “Altarwise by Owl Light”, a sonnet sequence the first six lines of which are as follows:

Altarwise by owl-light in the half-way house
The gentleman lay graveward with his furies;
Abaddon in a hangnail cracked from Adam,
And from his fork, a dog among the fairies,
The atlas eater with a jaw for news,
Bit out the mandrake with tomorrow’s scream.

There have been many Ph. D. Theses written about this sonnet sequence, often said to be surrealistic, or a dream sequence. To my mind it has meaning, although the young Thomas strives too hard for effect, making the poem needlessly dense and difficult. He himself insisted that his poetry was never surrealistic. The first two lines describe purgatory, the furies are Graeco Roman goddesses of vengeance, Abaddon is the Hebrew biblical word for place of destruction, and Adam has tasted the apple. A hangnail is a piece of loose skin from a fingernail, which might mean hanging on to life in purgatory, or might mean nothing at all, the poet carried away with words. The fairies are the magic people of European mythology and his fork might mean again purgatory, half in half out, downwards or upwards, you never know. The gentleman is a dog in the shady world and bites out the mandrake, the hallucinatory plant, to hear tomorrow’s scream, to know where he is going and what he is going to find. Around about this time Thomas was a reporter on the “Evening Post” in Swansea, so had a jaw for news. I think he got scared living in the Donegal wilderness and abruptly left without paying his bills on a bus to Belfast and no doubt by ferry home. This is not a very good piece of work compared with “Over Sir John’s Hill”, written in 1948, fourteen years later, and a work of maturity. Thomas was able to hypnotise audiences with his readings, and able to hypnotise them with words, even though they had no idea at all of his meaning. The vast majority of people in Wales have never read a world of Dylan Thomas, including Swansea Council. I am not sure that that is a good thing. Nonetheless the power and originality is obvious. There is nothing very profound in these six lines, they edge dangerously close to a child playing with words. The much simpler minimalist style of the granitic R. S. Thomas has more profundity. The best poetry by Dylan Thomas is that to which people can react, like “Ferndale”, or “Do not Go Gentle”, “In My Craft or Sullen Art”, or the great poem, “Over Sir John’s Hill”. I would certainly not analyse this sonnet sequence in a thesis. Dylan Thomas was very rude to the people of Donegal for some reason, I think that he was not cut out for solitude, and it got on his nerves.

Animation of 3 – D Orbits

August 31, 2014

We have just made the major discovery that universal gravitation produces precessing orbits, the first time this has been realized in over four hundred years (1600 to present). Horst Eckardt’s first animation of this breakthrough is now visible on the blog of . This means that Einsteinian general relativity is not only totally wrong but not necessary. What is more every scientist must agree because all that has been used are the spherical polar coordinates. This will not mean much to the general reader but the orbital animation is very clear.

Animation of elliptic 3D orbit

August 31, 2014

This is an excellent animation and shows immediately that the 3 -D orbit is a lot more intricate than the 2 – D orbit. The inversion problem is indeed a difficult one, and goes right back to Kepler himself. The computer might be able to find the answer straightforwardly. As Horst writes this should be regarded as a first attempt, but it is already full of originality. Obviously we have opened up a completely new subject area in cosmology upon which all can agree because it is based on the spherical polar coordinates.

Subj: Animation of elliptic 3D orbit

This is an animation for the beta ellipse in 3D, parametrized by the theta angle. Since the theta grid has been chosen equidistant, the motion speed is not physical. I am not sure if the orbit is compatible with the first 3D surface r(theta,phi) shown in paper 269,3 (Figs. 3/4). Normally this should be a trace on the surface. This has further to be analysed. It would also not be straightforward to compute the right timing behaviour because the time function has to be inverted which has to be done numerically.


FOR POSTING: sections 3 of papers 260 and 269

August 31, 2014

These are both excellent Sections 3, and I am asking Dave to post them in the appropriate places in the UFT Sections. As usual the analysis by co author Horst Eckardt greatly adds to the original papers, and always produces incisive new results as well as checking the concepts and algebra. The graphics are rigorous science and also works of art.

Subj: sections 3 of papers 260 and 269

I am sending this email from a friend.
I am sending over the numerical sections of papers 260 and 269, maybe there are still some typos in it.

We have already discussed the results for the Beltrami calculation of elementary particles/partons. Perhaps this method has to be combined with a more sophisticated description in the outer particle region but the Beltrami field definitly works, showing that such vortex structures are present in the inner of particles.

For paper 269 I have compiled the 3D images for the LZ, Ltheta/Lphi and L^2-LZ^2 orbits, as well as some plots of angular restrictions following from epsilon>0 and <1. The results seem to be consistent.




270(2): Interpretation of the Dynamics for Constant Theta

August 31, 2014

In this note the correct interpretation of the dynamics is given for constant theta. It is sufficient to understand the orbit in terms of Eq. (16) both for constant and non constant theta, (2-D and 3-D orbits respectively). There is no reason from the inverse sqaure law why a 3 – D orbit becomes a 2 – D orbit, but the geometry shows that all 2 – D orbits must precess. Some other mechanism must be at work to make the 3 – D orbit evolve to a 2 – D orbit. The inverse square law in 3 – D always transforms to a precessing ellipse in the 2 – D limit. For over four hundred years it has been thought that the inverse square law produces a non precessing ellipse. The error in the analysis was to restrict consideration to 2 – D from the outset. This error goes right back to Newton and Hooke, and was never corrected.


The Obvious Problem with Contemporary Physics

August 31, 2014

The obvious problem is that it does not work, and refuses to admit it. When a result such as that in Note 270(1) on the blog appears it is almost impossible for the standard physicists to accept its simplicity and power. They are ossified, turned to bone encasing an utterly obscure mindset. Despite the fact that anyone can see that note 270(1) is based on the spherical polar coordinates, the establishment of Einsteinian general relativity cannot bring themselves to admit that their entire approach is wrong, and indeed not needed. At the same time they cannot refute Cartan geometry, (no one can), and most certainly cannot refute spherical polar coordinates. So it is impossible to dialogue with them, which is why AIAS has evolved as it has. Note 270(1) shows that Newtonian gravitation can produce planetary precession. For over four hunded years this was thought to be impossible. Now it is known that it is perfectly possible, just use three dimensions. The entire basis of the Einsteinian general relativity evaporates. The ECE theory on the other hand goes from strength to strength. The graceful beauty of nature is wholly indifferent to human prejudice (pre judgment without fact). Einsteinian general relativity has become the ultimate in hearsay, the complete opposite of Baconian science. The next step is to apply these findings to galaxies where EGR collapses in a heap – and again they don’t admit it.

The Angle x = sin theta

August 31, 2014

The latest result in note 270(1) shows that there is an angle theta defined by x = sin theta in all planar precessions of m around M defined by the inverse square law of universal gravitation. So planetary precession is due simply to three dimensionality itself, a result as graceful as the swallow (y wenol). The precessing planar orbits must have evolved over a span of time from three dimensional orbits (r, theta, phi) to two dimensional orbits (r, phi) with fixed theta defined by x = sin theta, where x is the observed precession factor. Once this is realized there is no need for any further analysis unless one wishes to go deeper in to the origin of x. We already know that x is due to the ubiquitous Thomas precession of special relativity. By Ockham’s Razor the new theory is preferred to the far more complicated and incorrect Einsteinian general relativity. The observed precession factor is

x = 1 + 3MG / (alpha c squared)

= sin theta

Role of Large Trees in Wildlife

August 31, 2014

They play a vitally important role for wildlife, quite obviously, and cutting them down causes major damage to birds. For example I take a walk every day past Fagwr, the farm of my ancestor Daniel Hopkin, and that leads to an ancient road which must be several hundred years old. There are large trees in the hedges and this time of year the swallows start to prepare for the migration south. They are swift flying and graceful birds and their habitat is a large tree. A number of different species live in my own two large oak trees, and I will resist any effort to damage them in any legal way I can think of. They include the raven (bran), blackbird (aderyn du), and robin, and many other species.

270(1): Planetary Precession from the Classical Inverse Square Law

August 31, 2014

Using three dimensional orbits in the planar limit, it is shown that the planetary precession in the (r, phi) plane can be explained with

x = sin theta


x = 1 + 3MG / (alpha c squared).

So it is possible after four centuries (1600 to present) to explain planetary precession with the classical inverse square law. This is achieved by considering three dimensional orbits. Einstein’s theory is not needed and is completely incorrect. The factor x can be measured in astronomy and used to give a fix on theta of the (r, theta, phi) spherical polar system. Alternatively x can be understood with special relativity, the ubiquitous Thomas Precession, and converted very simply into a constant sin theta. This is yet another major advance in understanding made with x theory. It would be very interesting to graph the transition to a planar orbit from the three dimensional orbit. I don’t think anyone can have any objection to this result, it is the direct result of the spherical polar coordinates, which using a deeper analysis come from Cartan geometry. Conversely, if anyone does object to this they will reveal themselves as hopelessly prejudiced. So this is a useful note in many ways.


Plans for UFT270

August 31, 2014

Having discovered a simple method of describing three dimensional orbits, it is planned in UFT270 to develop the theory of precessing 3-D orbits of various kinds, notably those found in three dimensional galaxies. I think that it is important to graph the transition from a 3-D orbit to the usual planar orbit in 2-D. This occurs as theta approaches pi / 2 and L sub theta approaches zero. The 3 – D Binet equation can be used to find the force law for any 3 – D orbit. So far all the 3 -D orbits have come from the simple inverse square law of universal gravitation. An amazing variety of results appear when we go three dimensional.
