Impact of a Researcher or Author

It is obvious that the impact of an author has always been measured from the dawn of printing and literacy by how many times his or her work is read, and by how many works the author has published. Before that it was measured by word of mouth. It is known with accuracy that ECE theory has been read MILLIONS of times, and there are hundreds of ECE papers and books. It is constantly consulted by the best universities in the world. The most important measure of impact is the endurance of the work. Will it be read in a hundred years’ time? We know that ECE theory will be read for the foreseeable future because of the accurate scientometrics, the most meticulous ever devised for a theory of physics. The same is true of my poetry in both languages. The amazing thing is that all my work is read by a broad cross section of people in up to 182 countries, not only my work but the work of the entire AIAS / UPITEC team of course. The ECE theory cannot be refuted theoretically unless Cartan geometry is refuted. It can be refuted experimentally of course, but so far it has stood up to all tests. It produces all the good equations of physics from geometry. The Cartan geometry can be made more abstract, but it is entirely self consistent within its terms of reference. The work is accurate and checked very meticulously using computer algebra when possible. There are no longer any criticisms of it, and in fact there never were. There were distortions, ad hominem attacks from a tiny minority, but no intelligent criticism of Cartan geometry. My h and g indices are also very high, but I left academia in 1995 and forged a new way of publishing which is astoundingly successful. This means that people outside academia, (the great majority), don’t care very much about h and g indices, they read the work. They don’t care very much for any self styled establishment, or any censorship mechanism. Once the work is out in the open they read it by the millions. Many senior and responsible people now reject the standard model of physics, and of course we all reject criminal trolls. They belong in prison or in the alley of a thousand obsolete dustbins. I am flattered by the attention of a mindless troll, and invite him to tea and arsenic, Dylan Thomas style (“Under Milk Wood”). Just knock on the door for a chat, no need to hide in anonymity. I will quickly find out how much they know about geometry so the chat is likely to be very short.
