Without mathematics there is no physics

This was a saying by Leonardo da Vinci, so with ECE2 theory one can understand and predict. Peter Abelard (twelfth century) sought to question dogma so he could understand. So almost a thousand years ago, metaphysics was replaced by natural philosophy. Of course it got the Breton Peter Abelard into a lot of trouble, but it is always worth getting into trouble if you learn something. Experimental empiricism and experimental data are always the driving forces of Baconian natural philosophy as you know. The ECE2 theory is always compared with experimental data, this is the very essence of the Baconian method, which was devised to compare a theory with nature and not with another theory. Have you ever tried to explain a simple gyroscope with string theory in 106 and a half dimensions? Pauli described a theory as being “not even wrong” when it could not be compared with experimental data. I would describe the bad parts of standard physics as “not even rubbish”. It is not even honest garbage because it ignores refutations. The Einsteinian general relativity has been refuted in at least eighty three ways in the UFT series alone, but we still get the media big banging from the pulpit of ineluctable fogma (foggy dogma). That IS metaphysics as opposed to natural philosophy. It is bad theology, black holes and black magic, dark matter and dark caves full of idols. This is all very well known, standard physics is paralyzed by its own decadence.

Dear Agatha,

many thanks for your additional hints. One gyro should be accelerated and kept at constant angular velocity. We have experience with electric drives and should be able to build such units, perhaps in a shielding cage. I do not believe that the magnetic or electric field of the earth will have an effect because both are quite small, but we will see.

Instead of using a scale with two arms we could use any other scale but this is not so impressive for a video 🙂

We should keep in mind that a Faraday cage only does electrical shielding. For shielding the magnetic field of the earth you need something like a Helmholtz solenoid.

The gravitational effect of Prof. Martin Tajmar was very small (some micro g), therefore not so convincing. I never understood the geometry of his experiment, but according to your revealing hint the additional acceleration was in tangential direction of the ring. I had rather expected a radial acceleration, or something like a mechanical Lorentz force (if it was not a thermal effect 🙂

Dear Horst,

You do not believe ?! 😉

Neither do I. :))
As the saying goes: Seeing is believing.
And you wrote: We shall see. :))

Dear Horst, I am very happy that, FINALLY, we are having

a constructive, open discussion about the experiments.

It is much better than arguing about metaphysical aspects
of theories.

I always do welcome all your input and suggestions, Horst.

However, I still need to let you know all the reasons why
these two experiments are designed exactly as they are,

and not differently. After your vacation, OK?

” Instead of using a scale with two arms we could use any other scale ”

Wrong !! :))

” The gyros should be accelerated and kept at constant angular velocity.
We have experience with electric drives and should be able to build such units,
perhaps in a shielding cage.”

In the second experiment, no shielding is needed at all.

We may accelerate one gyro and keep it at a constant angular velocity,

but only later, as a second variation on this experiment.

” The gravitational effect of Prof. Martin Tajmar was very small (some micro g),
therefore not so convincing. I never understood the geometry of his experiment “

Neither did I.

In my humble opinion, it was THE BEST geometry

for producing NO results at all. :))
Keep in mind that Prof. Martin Tajmar is a high-profile experimental physicist
of international renown in the field of unconventional space propulsion,
and that he performed all those gravity experiments also on behalf
of the US Air Force.

I would not be surprised if there were some pressure on Prof. Martin Tajmar
(from the USA) to change his final conclusion, unless Prof. Tajmar did not mind
to start working forthe US Department of Defence, like Dr. Ning Li
and her University of Alabama colleague, Dr. Douglas Torr —

Dear Horst, have a good time in Romania.

With kind regards,

Agatha
