British Gas Homecare Rip Off

June 30, 2017

Readers are advised that British Gas Home Care has come in for much criticism recently, for example in “The Guardian”. They tried to rip me off for £600 for a minor plumbing task. They claimed that this was not covered by my contract, which covers plumbing. This was expertly and efficiently completed by Trustee Ashley Jones and his colleague for £35. I will make a formal complaint against British Gas, which is supposed to be a reputable company. Attempted rip offs are commonplace these days, there seems to be no consumer protection at all. Complaints are essentially ignored, but I may as well file one. The journal business is out of control, Steve Crothers has been ripped off for being honest – asking for permission to reproduce a diagram. I think that our AIAS / UPITEC publishing system is vastly superior. I may sue Talk Talk for £7,500, because they have admitted guilt in writing.

Many thanks to Kerry Pendergast

June 30, 2017

Many thanks to Kerry Pendergast for meeting the industrial economist Steve Bannister of the University of Utah at Abergavenny railway station and bringing him back on the Heads of the Valleys road. This runs straight through Merthyr Tydfil where Kerry went to Grammar School. Craig y Nos Castle Hotel’s website is well designed and is getting over 9,000 page views a month (attached). It is situated about twenty miles from Swansea. A Waterfront Hotel is most convenient for the Trevithick engine. I can meet Steve on the Friday. We are currently at a record high monthly interest in the ECE2 papers and books.


Book of Scientometrics Volume Two Updated to 28/6/17

June 30, 2017

There was the usual intense international interest. From the world’s top twenty universities there was interest as follows (* denotes repeat or multiple consultations): MIT, Princeton, Oxford*, Washington, Imperial*, Tokyo, Berkeley*, Stanford, Washington and Johns Hopkins. There is a record high interest in the ECE papers and books, and intense interest in all the books. The complete returns will be in as usual in two days’ time. Congratulations to all staff!


380(6): Spin Connection Plane Wave in ECE2 Electromagnetism and Gravitation

June 30, 2017

This note solves Eqs. (1) to (7) to show that a vector potential plane wave in electromagnetism is accompanied in ECE2 by a space like spin connection plane wave. The time like component of the spin connection is zero. This result is true both for electomagnetism and gravitation, because the spin connection is a fundamental property of spacetime, the aether or vacuum. So there are aether plane waves. These quantize to vacuum particles, introduced earlier in the ECE2 series of papers. This result illustrates that ECE2 is a rigorously self consistent theory.


Hafod y Ddo^l

June 30, 2017

Very interesting! As you know, Hafod y Ddo^l means the summer pastures from a time when the people led a pastoral existence, and were almost all monoglot Welsh speakers right out across Hereford County in the Silurian dialect. They had no need to speak English, and had no interest in doing so. My grandparents were monoglot Welsh speakers. I would like to revive that society. Richard Crawshay comes out of Cyfarthfa, known as “Little Hell”, better than most. He was an early humanitarian. As is very well known, the iron masters and coal owners were sadistic and ruthless exploiters. In Little Hell, houses were built on top of slag tips, four or five to a room, no sanitation, no medicine, child labour, child poisoning ad nauseam. The first industial revolution was profoundly evil, and if we are not careful will lead to human extinction. Our own second industrial revolution, the subject of Steve Bannister’s Thesis, is designed to try to clean up the mess before it is too late. I clearly remember coal mining conditions that sprang from that era, and they were highly dangerous and sadistically inhuman. In the United States, Ford was the great exploiter, and that habit came from people like the original Crawshay. Roosevelt was a patrician, and introduced many reforms from 1933 onwards, in a desperate attempt to get out of the great depression. Aneurin Bevan, as you know, was the great reformer of 1947 / 1948, introducing the National Health Service against the kicking and screaming tories whom he accurately described as being lower than vermin because of their refusal to help the seriously ill who could not afford medical treatment. You kindly arranged for the County Council to show me Aneurin Bevan’s memorial, high out on the mountainside. The founder of the Labour Party , James Keir Hardie, the great socialist and pacifist, was elected M. P. for Merthyr Boroughs in 1900. In 1896 he had asked that a message of condolence be sent to the relatives of 251 coal miners killed at the Albion Colliery in Cil Fynydd. This request was refused. Sixteen years later at Senghenydd in 1913, another three hundred miners were killed in one explosion of methane (fire damp), and Aberfan is described in Autobiography Volume One. Thereafter the evil tips were demolished, except for one or two on the floors of valleys. I showed one to Steve Bannister on his last visit. I wonder whether anyone would like living on one of those. It regularly slips into the river.

The original “Crawshay’s Bailey”

I went to school in Nantyglo. My grammar school was called Hafod y Ddol and was built for Crashay Bailey, but he gave it to his doctor and built his stately home three hundred yards away.

Subject : The original “Crawshay’s Bailey”

This is found by googling “Geiriau Caneuon Cymraeg” adn a lot of the old songs come up. “Y Mochyn Du”, “The Back Pig”, “An Muiche Dubh”, starts as follows.

Holl drigolion bro a bryniau
Dewch i wrando hyn o eiriau,
Fe gewch hanes rhyw hen fochyn
A fu farw yn dra sydyn.

I translate this as follows in the same rhythm and rhyme pattern:

All who live in these old mountains
Now come and listen to refrains
The story of a black old swine,
A sudden end, a swift decline.

Then the refrain sent over yesterday. This was converted by Crawshay’s Welsh speaking workers into a savage and famous satire on inhuman exploitation in approximately the same metre and rhythm, but different rhyme

Crawshay’s bailey had an engine,
But his engine wouldn’t go,
So he pulled it on a string
All the way to Nant y Glo.

The bailey is a bailiff. The first Labour M. P. was elected for Merthyr Burrows. Conditions were appalling beyond all belief. So this is the obvious downside of the first industrial revolution. We studied Dowlais and Cyfarthfa in Pontardawe Grammar School for O level history.

Conference Paper by Doug Lindstrom and Russ Davis

June 30, 2017

Many thanks! This interesting paper and any other conference papers can of course be published at the authors’ convenience in a special section of the website. There is an open invitation to Fellows to present conference papers. I do not know whether or not Steve Bannister will have a laptop with him. The hotel should be chosen to be one that can link in to skype, and also be close to the Trevithick engine.

Dear Myron,

I will be travelling to Aberystwyth on the Thursday via Builth Wells. I could pick Steve up at Abergavenny railway station and travel to Aberystwyth via Swansea on that day. This should save Steve several hours on the train and the first part of the journey to Swansea would be past Merthyr on the Heads of the Valley road through twelve miles of the ‘iron belt’ between Brynmawr and Merthyr. In Merthyr, Steve could be shown the sites of the Dowlais, Pendarren, Cafartha and Plymouth works which all took part in the bet.


Visit by Dr. Stephen Bannister, University of Utah – updated

Looks as if the best course of action is to book in to one of the hotels close to the Marina, and I can meet you there to discuss progress, especially UFT311, UFT321 and UFT364. This can be combined with a visit to see the Trevithick steam engine in the Marina. Gareth has to go to Gloucester at about that time. It would be convenient if one or two other locals could join the meeting. It is a very long journey from Utah and Steve could also talk about his Thesis on the second industrial revolution. He is assistant professor in the University of Utah. Alternatively skype can be used. Steve and I will be in one location, and others can skype in. Notably Horst Eckardt, who could talk about ES, and Doug Lindstrom, who could talk about LENR. These opportunities are few and far between. Anyone else is welcome to skype in.

Hello Myron. I think I will now travel to Swansea on Thursday the 13th. This will give me two full days in your area, Friday and Saturday, heading back to Heathrow on Sunday. Please arrange the meetings at everyone’s convenience in that window.

I think I will stay in Swansea. I checked the National Maritime Museum site, and it says that are open 10–5 daily. I have emailed them to confirm.

It might be best to arrange a meeting here or at Craig y Nos Castle Hotel. This is three star with good food. I can drive you there from the station. Otherwise there are hotels on the Marina close to the Maritime Museum, so you can be sure to see the Trevithick engine this time. We all look forward to seeing you!

Hello Myron. Here is my current thinking. I will train to Swansea on Friday the 14th, and explore Swansea until Sunday the 16th. I hope we can find time to meet; I would be delighted to invite you and your wife to dinner at some nice place if you would enjoy that.

Given no group meeting, I think it will make sense for me to find a hotel in Swansea.

It will be a pleasure to meet him. You could set up lecture demonstrations in the Patti Theatre. Craig Cefn Parc had Hendy and Nixon drift mines into the eleven foot Craigola seam of steam coal. I gave Steve Bannister a lump of steam coal to mark the end of the first industrial revolution. The second one will depend on energy from spacetime, and it must be introduced as soon as possible. My entire family were coal miners for four generations and more. There is a film of Craig Cefn Parc on the net, the first to appear there is my late cousin Marbeth, then my late Uncle Wil covered in coal dust. There were frequent accidents and the mines are described in Autobiography Volume One. It was a far more knowledgeable and cultured environment than the current faceless car stuffed suburb, and nearly all fluently Welsh speaking. There was no crime of any kind, in great contrast to now, where the police are unable to deal with crime. Crime is imported from the nearby Morriston estates. Linda Frame, a community councillor, lives in the former winding house. My great grandfather Tommy Thomas Jones was in charge of the winding gear, and my grandfther Thomas Elim Havard-Jones, Head Deacon, was a dram engineer an collier. WhenI have teh precise dates I can make bookings at the Craiug y Nos Hotel, owned by my ancestor, the inudstrialist Morgan Morgan, the Squire of Glyn Tawe, from 1886 to 1888 at the height of the first industrial revolution. My ancestral cousin Lord Tudor Watkins, Labour M. P. for many years, and a life peer, was also a coal miner. I was recently told by an ineluctable sage that I could not be a Gentleman because I am the son of a coal miner. All the coal miners were members of the Aristocracy. They worked honestly in very dangerous conditions, and rarely if ever committed any crime. They were all fluently Welsh speaking. As a matter of fact, all the Morgan Aubrey Family are members of the Gentry, and have been for several hundred years. My own rank is Squire or Armiger, equivalent to Laird in Scotland, and I took the title of Arglwydd Glyn Tawe a Gwyr, after my ancestors, the Lords of Glyn Tawe and Gower. Unlike some people who pretended to have been coal miners to get a couple of votes, I am from a real coal mining family. I was told by my family to keep out of the coal mines, and work hard at school and university. This was true all over South Wales as we all know. So I became the first Ph. D. and D. Sc. in the history of Mawr, and the first Welsh speaking Civil List Pensioner. Similarly the slate workers of North Wales were told much the same thing. Many of them were descended form Princes, as I am.

Discussion of 380(5)

June 30, 2017

This is interesting and important progress towards a complete solution where all three components of Q (or A in electromagnetism) and the four components of the spin connection four-vector can be found from solving seven simultaneous equations. Then these interesting solutions would be examples of the general solution. The latter would be applicable to any situation in electrodynamics and gravitation, and a combination of both. Can Maxima be programmed to solve the seven equations simultaneously and in general? The three dimensional problem can be reduced to two dimensions for gravitation, thereby simplifying the computational problem considerably and producing precessing orbits in two dimensions in terms of the spin connection. This precession could be compared numerically with the very important results of UFT378, where forward and retrograde precessions were found from the ECE2 lagrangian. One could assume that the vector potential for electromagnetism is a plane wave, and use these equations to find the spin conenction for the plane wave. There is an effectively infinite number of things that could be done, so we can selct the most important for practical application. Finally it would be very interesting to graph these solutions by Horst Eckardt.

Subj: Re: Discussion of 380(5)

I extended the examples by a rotating Q vector in 2 and 3 components. With 3 oscillating components (section 2.1), eqs. o22-o24 are fulfilled with
beta = omega_0
bold k = bold omega

One has to be cautious however because not all equations are compatible in all cases. In section 2.2 only 2 oscillating components are used. This leads to equations i37. The first two equations hold either if Q1=Q2=0 or if the cos and sin functions are equal. The latter is only the case for an argument of pi/4, therefore the solution set is restricted to a kind of line in the XY plane, parametrized by t.

This is exactly what is needed, and congratulations! It is the required solution of seven equations in seven unknowns with sensible assumptions. This is the required general method that can be used for any problem and it will be very interesting to graph the solutions, and other types of solution. I think that this is another significant step forward in progress. It means that the spin connection is no longer an unknown, a key development.

Subj: Re: Discussion of 380(5)

I programmed all these 7 equations. Then I made the assumptions

Q is a wave only in X direction
omega_0 is only a fuction of t.
(section 2.1). Then follows for example

omega_z / k_z = omega_0 / beta,
omega_y / k_y = omega_0 / beta.

In section 2.2, I assumed
bold omega = [0, 0, kappa] = const.
omega_0 is only a fuction of t.

This reduces the equations significantly to the set i28/o28 (see protocol). The additional assumption of a rotating Q vector (i31) with a special Z dependence then leads to the equation set i32. Here we can set

omega_0 = beta

and the result for bold cap Omega can be rewritten with a trigonometric theorem to the form o35. This is a vector with phase difference of pi/2 between X and Y component, i.e. a rotating field as desired. Converted to electromagnetism, this should be a proof that it is possible to obtain a constant spin connection omega by a rotationg magnetic field. A very special vector potential is required, but this should not matter when the magnetic field is generated directly.

I will also check what comes out with 2 waves in X and Y direction.


Am 29.06.2017 um 10:02 schrieb EMyrone:

This is very good progress by Maxima. Off the cuff, I should think that a combination of equations such as Eq. (65) would be needed for a rotating magnetic field. Can Maxima solve the general problem:

del B = 0

curl E + partial B / partial t = 0

B = curl A – omega x A

E = – partial A / partial t – omega sub 0 A

plus the antisymmetry equations (68) to (70)? Your problem would then be a special case of the general solution, and you could design any magnetic field of relevance. It may also be possible for Maxima to give the general solution of Eq. (6), which comes from the Faraday law of induction for gravitation. The Gauss law del omega = 0 leads to Eq. (5). So Eqs. (5) and (6) are the homogeneous laws of gravitation expressed in terms of potentials and spin connections. Eq. (6) for electromagnetism is found by replacing Q by A. You could try assuming a plane wave solution for A, and find the spin connection from the antisymmetry laws. I will have a look at this by hand.

Subj: Re: 380(5): Example Solution, the Spin Connection as the Wave Four Vector.

The assumed solution of eqs.(21-23) , eq.(27), is even the general solution. Maxima says:
The diff. eq.

has the general solution:

An interesting result is than a constant omega (eq.76) can be constituted from oscillating A and B fields (71) and (79/80). A technically more interesting case would be to have a rotating B field in the XY plane:

B_X = B_0 cos(omega t)
B_Y = B_0 sin(omega t)
B_Z = 0

Is it possible to construct this in a similar way? If a Z dependence of type

cos (ometa t – kappa Z)

remains, it would be important to determine kappa in a way that the variation in Z is small. This requirement collides with eq.(39) where we need a large kappa to obtain a significang spin connection.

This note gives an example solution with the spin connection as the wave four vector, both for electromagnetism and gravitation. The magnetic flux density is a travelling wave in the j axis, and the electric field strength is a travelling wave in the i axis. These hand calculations should be checked with computer algebra as usual. The computer can also be used to give the most general possible solution, and that would be very useful for an infinite number of problems in the physical sciences and engineering.

Elexon portals to are down, so this is not quite real time data, but the wind speed in the Betws area now is 7 mph, and the derelict turbines are producing nothing at all as usual, because they need 9 mph to start. Solar is 3.87% so the solar panels in Mawr are producing a negligible percentage of electricity demand, and about nothing to total demand (electricity plus all kinds of fuel). Hydro is a pathetic 1.07%.
