Note 405(4): A New ECE2 Covariant Theory of All Precessions

This note shows that rotation of the ECE2 covariant metric (6) produces any experimentally reported precession of an object m orbiting an object M. The fundamental cause of all precessions is the vacuum fluctuation, and any precession can be described in terms of the velocity of rotation of the ECE2 metric and infinitesimal line element (6). Note carefully that this metric describes a space in which both torsion and curvature are identically non zero. It is not the Minkowski metric in which torsion and curvature are both zero (flat spacetime).The theory is applied to Gravity Probe B in which the dominant precession is the gravitational precession claimed experimentally to be (15) for any m orbiting any M. The second biggest is the geodetic precession (about an order of magnitude smaller than the gravitational precession) and by far the smallest is the Lense Thirring precession, nearly three orders of magnitude smaller than the gravitational precession. This result leads to severe criticisms of Gravity Probe B because the main gravitational precession is not even reported, and it is impossible to isolate the three precessions, each from the others, they are always present simultaneously. In refining their experimental results, NASA / Stanford must have assumed the theories they were attempting to prove or else invoked magic. GPB does not, of course, support the incorrect Einstein theory, in which torsion is missing completely. So it seems that GPB was an ultra expensive failure. There seem to be many of these ultra expensive failures, all trying to prove the impossible, that a geometry without torsion is correct. If we accept the magical experimental claims then ECE2 produces exact agreement in a far simpler and therefore far more powerful way than the obsolete standard model. I cannot understand how the GPB paper was accepted by Phys. Rev. Lett. when it did not even report the main precession. I think that the PRL editors were part of the club.
