Relativistic GPS Evidence and Quantum Gravity Architecture of the Discrete Field Model

Authors: Peter Jackson

Adjustment of GPS satellite clocks for relativistic effects is often cited as important evidence for Relativity. In 1952 Einstein said it is "logically unavoidable" that space is made up of; "an infinite number of spaces in motion relatively to each other." The Discrete Field Model (DFM) is derived from this, and testing it in the same way should show if this applies simply to 'systems of co-ordinates' or to real physical phenomena as the model predicts. Previous papers and describe a model complying with SR postulates. They uncover consistent evidence suggesting a change in just one assumption pursuant to SR may resolve anomalies and paradoxes. This is reviewed conceptually and QG implications are considered. The GPS evidence, identified in the 2nd paper as potential falsification of the DFM, is considered and logically analysed with other data. Evidence is found that the co-ordinate system also has a real physical basis, able to be described by quantum field phenomena. The root cause and implications are discussed.
