The Return of Absolute Simultaneity and Its Relationship to Einstein’s Relativity of Simultaneity

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 11 Pages.

In this paper we show how Einstein's relativity of simultaneity is fully consistent with anisotropic one-way speed of light. We get the same end result and observations as predicted by Einstein, but with a very different interpretation. We show that the relativity of simultaneity is an apparent effect due to an Einstein clock synchronization error, which is rooted in assuming that the one-way speed of light is the same as the well-tested round-trip speed of light. Einstein's relativity of simultaneity leads to several bizarre paradoxes recently introduced by Haug (2016a, 2016b).

The Return of Absolute Simultaneity? A New Way of Synchronizing Clocks Across Reference Frames

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 7 Pages.

This paper introduces a new way to synchronize clocks distanced apart and a way to synchronize clocks between reference frames. Based on a simple synchronization thought experiment, we claim that relativity of simultaneity must be incomplete. Einstein's special relativity theory predicts relativity of simultaneity and that two events that happen simultaneously in one reference frame will not happen simultaneously as observed from another reference frame. Relativity of simultaneity is directly linked to a particular way of synchronizing clocks (Einstein-Poincar\'{e} synchronization) that again assumes that the one-way speed of light is isotropic and identical with the well-tested round-trip speed of light. In the new thought experiment introduced here, there is reason to believe that two distant events can happen simultaneously in both frames. Still, we agree that these events will not happen simultaneously as measured with Einstein synchronized clocks. The claim here is that Einstein synchronized clocks lead to apparent relativity of simultaneity due to a clock synchronization error rooted in the assumption of isotropic one-way speed of light.

Space Axis of Time-Space Frame of Reference for Special Relativity Theory and The Core of the Theory

Authors: Tsuneaki Takahashi
Comments: 4 Pages.

It may be hard to understand Lorentz transformation intuitively because it is derived inductively from the light speed constancy for every inertia systems. Specially the definition of space-axis (time zero line) is unclear although time-axis definition may be reasonable when the Lorentz transformation is recognized as a rotation of frame of reference on the Minkowski space. On such situation, Lorentz transformation may become understandable if the logic of space-axis definition become clear. And light speed constancy may not be an axiom, it should be what to be derived.

Frame Dragging Remedy for Polarizable Vacuum Theory at High Speed in Deep Space Transport

Authors: Jerry L. Decker
Comments: 14 Pages. Frame Dragging Predicted By Modified Polarizable Vacuum Theory

Frame dragging resulted from modifications of Polarizable Vacuum Theory that were done to bring high velocity terms into PV consistent with established science of energy and momentum at high speed. It was found that velocity terms could not be brought into PV theory without formalism for exchange of kinetic energy with the vacuum space. Planck’s Law in general and Heisenberg Uncertainty in a specific case were used to develop a mechanism for continual exchange of kinetic energy with the local vacuum. The mechanism calls for incurring equal exchange of energy with space when acceleration does not occur, and unequal exchange when a physical object is accelerating. Accumulating kinetic energy in space was found to polarize the vacuum in a way equivalent to the polarizing parameter K of Harold Puthoff. Frame dragging results from the continual increase of vacuum stress energy trailing longitudinally and propagating transversely from an accelerating deep space vehicle.

Interpretational Scenarios of Special Relativity

Authors: Bernardo Sotomayor Valdivia
Comments: 10 Pages.

This monograph was motivated by the following question posted by the author at the ResearchGate (RG) Website: In the context of Special Relativity (SR): is it time dilation, clock frequency increase, both of the above or none of the above? At the writing of this document there were over 520 RG postings related to the above question by many different scholars/researchers, both proponents and dissenters of Special Relativity. The discourse of the answers clearly shows in my opinion that most of the apparent incongruencies mentioned in the posts about Special Relativity were not necessarily because of its formulation, but because of the different interpretations that arise from the physical effects that the Lorentz Transformation (LT) predicts. This is not to say that SR has or has not problems as a theory but that its general acceptability is hampered by the many interpretational paradoxes that can be formulated because of its notoriously ambiguous concepts regarding time dilation and length contraction. Not surprisingly, the concepts of relativistic momentum and energy were not subject to scrutiny, I suspect because of their already accepted relative nature and their established relativistic relation to motion as empirically demonstrated in particle accelerators and the like. Needless to say, most of the so called incongruencies that were posted dealt with time dilation, as to its meaning or as to whether it is real or apparent. As usual on RG posts, many of the answers were diametrically opposed. In this monograph, I propose a comparative scenario of SR that is shown to be free of incongruencies or paradoxes.

Simple Experiment That Unequivocally Verify Relativity.

Authors: Chan Rasjid, Kah Chew
Comments: 2 Pages.

Although many experiments have been cited as empirical verification of special relativity, they are not experiments that could not have questions raised about their validity as proofs. There is one simple experiment that could be carried out to put to rest, incontrovertibly, the controversies concerning the validity of special relativity - by a direct measurement of the speed of beta particles from beta decay. If special relativity is correct, no electrons would be found to go faster than light speed. If special relativity is invalid, then kinetic energy obeys the old 1 / 2 mv2 formula. Some beta particles could be ejected with kinetic energy greater than 1 MeV; such electrons would be detected to travel at about twice the speed of light. Though it is one of the simplest experiment that many laboratories over the world could perform,until now, the experiment has yet to be carried out.

The G\"{o}del Universe and the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox

Authors: Moninder Singh Modgil
Comments: 11 Pages.

Notion of causality in G\"{o}del universe, is compared with what is implied by the Einstein-Podolski-Rosen (EPR) type experiments of quantum mechanics. Red shift of light from distant galaxies is explained by employing Segal's compact time coordinate - in the G\"{o}del universe - which indeed was considered by G\"{o}del in his seminal paper. Various possibilities for the rotation of the universe are discussed. It is note worthy that in recent years, the scope of research on G\"{o}del univese, has expanded to include topics in string theory, supersymmetry and embedding of black holes.

Estimating 3-Space Velocity from REG-REG Correlations

Authors: Peter C Morris
Comments: 5 Pages.

"Nanotechnology Quantum Detectors for Gravitational Waves...", Progress in Physics, 2013, v.4, 57-62, describes detection of gravitational dynamical 3-space waves through correlation analysis of data from quantum Random Event Generators (REGs) operating within the Global Consciousness Project (GCP) network. We found this extremely interesting so attempted to perform similar analysis using different data from the same network. We were able to extract correlations such as those reported, estimate the velocities of 3-space waves and 3-space flow and observe earth orbit aberration effects. Herein we describe our analysis and results.

Replacement of Einstein’s Relativity Theory with a New One: Why the Second Postulate is Superfluous?

Authors: A. V. Mamaev
Comments: 11 Pages. The article was refused from publishing in EPL as the paper does not meet the criteria for novelty.

My purpose consisted in creation of a new relativistic space-time theory instead of Einstein’s Relativity Theory, but basing upon only one postulate. This could become feasible only if a law of light propagation in a moving inertial reference frame could be made a consequence of the relativity postulate. It was made a reality by discovery by P.M. Rapier of a quadratic dependence of light speed upon the speed of a light source. Considering various ways of making the second postulate superfluous the most short of them was through introducing into the theory of a new concept “light speed in a moving inertial reference frame” by means of usage of a four-dimensional Minkovski’s formalism. This new concept speed was defined as equal to a fourth component of a four-dimensional speed of any moving particle. Then using this newly introduced concept the time-measurement unit was calculated for a moving light clock that occurred to be equal to the time measurement unit of a stationary light clock. And as a very happy event the time dilation effect was deleted from the theory.

Dig Modified Spacetime Curvature Under the Influence of Energy and Matter

Authors: Alexander F. Jonkeren
Comments: 5 Pages.

This paper describes a modification of the curvature in which spacetime is shaped under the influence of energy and matter. With this modified curvature it is possible to predict and probably explain many observed phenomena in Cosmology that cannot be accounted for by the generally accepted General Relativity spacetime curvature. Regarding all other aspects it does fully comply with General Relativity.

The Identity of the Inertial Mass with the Gravity Mass

Authors: Miroslav Pardy
Comments: 5 Pages. original article

The motion of the mathematical extra-terrestrial pendulum is considered in the spherical gravitational field. The potential energy of the pendulum bob is approximated to give the nonlinear equation of motion. After solving it by the Landau-Migdal method we obtain the frequency of motion and the swing amplitude. The crucial point of our experiment is, that if the inertial mass m depends on its distance from the reference body M, then the calculated frequuency of our pendulum is not identical with the measured frequency. This crucial knowledge of the pendulum project can have substantional influence on the future development of general relativity and physics of elementary particles.

On The Origin of Magnetism And Gravitation And On The Nature of Electricity And Matter

Authors: Hochecker, Hans-Joerg
Comments: 28 Pages.

I can show that gravitation is an electric effect. To this, it is necessary to better understand the qualities of the electric charges and their forces. I start by showing that the magnetic field can be represented as an angled electric field. To this, the electric field must have two qualities: the dependence of the electric force on the velocity, and the electric anti-field. All previous cognitions on electrodynamics stay with it untouched. Then, I apply these two new qualities to gravitation, and it turns out that gravitation is an electric effect if a third quality applies to the electric field: the quantization of the energy transfer of the electric field. These three new qualities complete our picture of electrodynamics. Finally, I go to the origins of the three new qualities with the help of the early quantum mechanics. This turns out well by representing the electric charge as a spacetime wave, in which its frequency corresponds to its mass.

Counter-Examples to the Kruskal-Szekeres Extension: In Reply to Jason J. Sharples

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 5 Pages.

Jason J. Sharples of the University of New South Wales wrote an undated article titled ‘On Crothers’ counter-examples to the Kruskal-Szekeres extension’, in which he asserted, “The claims relating to the counter-examples made by the author in [1] about the invalidity of the Kruskal-Szekeres extension and the Schwarzschild black hole are completely erroneous.” However, Sharples failed to understand the arguments I adduced and consequently committed serious errors in both mathematics and physics. In his endeavour to prove me ‘erroneous’, Sharples introduced what he calls “an inverted radial coordinate”. Contrary to Sharples’ allegation, there is no ‘inverted radial coordinate’ involved. Sharples simply failed to comprehend the geometry of the problem. Sharples’ mathematical proof that I am ‘erroneous’ violates the rules of pure mathematics. The Kruskal-Szkeres extension and the Schwarzschild black hole it facilitates are fallacious because they violate the rules of pure mathematics.

Aum: The Primordial Signal

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 16 Pages.

Motivated by the increasing significance of Indian Spirituality and its cornerstone, the Pranava Aum, the present article explores the results of a signal based nonlinear analysis of Aum recital. Aum is seen to possess a rich frequency profile, with an array of integral and non-integral harmonic components. The phase portrait of Aum is rich, dense and ornamental, typical of chaotic systems. Polar plots of Aum show a remarkable uniformity in phase distribution. The bispectrum shows ordered pattern of scintillations, ruling out random processes. Quantitative analyses of Aum assert the presence of chaos, while also revealing a high degree of uncertainty, instability and self-similarity in the underlying process. In comparisons with chaos observed in solar cell open circuit output voltage, the similarities between Aum and solar processes become apparent. It is hoped that the results discussed in the present article throw light on Aum, as an audio signal, helping to understand the underlying features and characteristics of this primordial signal. The chaotic nature of Aum speaks volumes about the intricacies and complexities underlying the universal primordial sound, suggesting that it indeed possesses the necessary complexity to be the universal wave function. The similarity with solar cell based signals indicates the ubiquity of this primordial chaos in natural systems, further accentuating the omnipresent nature of Aum.

Multiverse Assumptions

Authors: James R Johnson
Comments: 10 Pages. Keywords: multiverse, inflation, string theory, cyclic universe, simulated universe. ultimate universe

It is easy to confuse multiverse proposals because many divergent models exist. This overview defines the characteristics of ten popular multiverse proposals. The characteristics which are compared to our universe are: initial conditions, values of constants, laws of nature, number of space dimensions, number of universes, and fine tuning explanations. Multiverses are predictions based on theories. Focusing on each theory’s assumptions is key to evaluating a proposed multiverse. Future scientific experiments may validate selected assumptions. Using intuition as perspective, theories supporting multiverses have “strange” assumptions, but nature is not always intuitive.

Lorentz transformation of special relativity theory has been derived inductively based on the constancy of light velocity for every inertia systems. The equation predicts possible important results. But many people might feel it is hard to understand these intuitively. The cause of it may be these have not been derived deductively from basic nature laws for over hundred years. This may mean we don’t know any basic nature laws for special relativity theory yet. Here we try to find these.

For example, the "gods" in physics include Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger, Dirac, Heisenberg etc. There were many people who refused to worship these gods, and they were expelled or dismissed as "rebels" or "dissidents". The worst kind of those rebels are called "heretics." Here allow me to tell you a story of a dissident.

Creating a Universe, a Conceptual Model

Authors: James R Johnson
Comments: 21 Pages. Keywords: laws of nature, initial conditions, big bang,multiverse, fine tuning, space, universe

Space is something. Space inherently contains laws of nature: universal rules (mathematics, space dimensions, types of forces, types of fields, and particle species), laws (relativity, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism) and symmetries (Lorentz, Gauge, and symmetry breaking). We have significant knowledge about these laws of nature because all our scientific theories assume their presence. Their existence is critical for developing either a unique theory of our universe or more speculative multiverse theories. Scientists generally ignore the laws of nature because they “are what they are” and because visualizing different laws of nature challenges the imagination. This article defines a conceptual model separating space (laws of nature) from the universe’s energy source (initial conditions) and expansion (big bang). By considering the ramifications of changing the laws of nature, initial condition parameters, and two variables in the big bang theory, the model demonstrates that traditional fine tuning is not the whole story when creating a universe. Supporting the model, space and “nothing” are related to the laws of nature, mathematics and multiverse possibilities. Speculation on the beginning of time completes the model.

We define a level of abstraction beyond typical units of measurement allowing abstract measurements to be incorporated within the context of a model. The approach is applied to the concept of time resulting in a radically different perspective of what time is and what it does. The results show consistency with modern views of time via derivations of Lorentz's time dilation, length contraction and coordinate transformations.

E = Mc^2 and Mass Energy Equivalence Wrong

Authors: Glenn A. Baxter
Comments: Ten pages

The 9th edition, 2011, of Resnick and Halliday PHYSICS, states on page 1043 “..In 1905, (Dr.) Einstein showed that as a consequence of his theory of Special Relativity, mass can be considered to be another form of energy…An object’s mass m and the equivalent energy Eo are related by Eo = mc^2 which, without the subscript o, is the best known science equation of all time….If you continue your study of physics beyond this book, you will see more refined discussions of the relation between mass and energy. You might even encounter disagreements about just what that relation is and what it means…” The book’s current “author,” Dr. Jearl Walker, had been sent my paper disagreeing with E = mc^2 in 2008, three years before the 9th edition’s first 2011 publication. See www.k1man.com/b This paper discusses this disagreement and shows newly organized experimental proof that E = mc^2 and mass – energy equivalence, the corner stone of 21st century Main Stream physics dogma is wrong.

This paper innovates the way we comprehend time and its relationship with space by proposing a new concept within General relativity and, to some extent, Quantum Mechanics in order to explain some of the natural aspects that still puzzle scientists that study the very nature of the Universe. Gravitation, the arrow of time, cosmic inflation and many more subjects that are crucial to modern day physics shall be debated within the most accurate theory, General relativity, but also with some concepts developed in terms of Quantum Mechanics.

General Relativity, String Theory and the Super-Universe

Authors: Michael Spears
Comments: 25 Pages. A new theory of time, gravity and the infinite Universe. This is the first real challenge to Einstein in a century.

This paper forms the foundations of a new theory of time, gravity and the infinite Universe. In Part 1 I expose a mistake in the theory of General Relativity and then proceed to develop new field equations for gravitational time dilation. The idea is that Einstein achieved the correct results with incorrect working. In Part 2 I propose a physical model of gravity based on a network of strings. In Part 3 I propose an explanation for the big bang and probably the only working model of the infinite Universe. This is the first real challenge to Einstein in a century.

Special Relativity Entirely ‎ New Explanation ‎

Authors: Mourici Shachter‎
Comments: 10 Pages.

In this paper I correct a minor error in Einstein's theory of Special Relativity, and ‎suggest a new approach to tackle problems in this area of physics. Propose of this ‎paper is to understand what is mass. I suggest, to read this paper carefully because the ‎minor error is in the foundation of physics. And a little part of the big structure that ‎was built on those foundations is going to crash. ‎

Interactions and Group Symmetries in the Physical Universe

Authors: Daniele Sasso
Comments: 15 Pages.

The question of fundamental interactions in nature, of their interpretation and of their interrelations isn't defined well yet and it regards whether interactions in the microscopic elementary universe or interactions in the macroscopic universe. It is very important then to can relate interactions to symmetries because these allow a simplification of the mathematical description of the physical reality and consequently a simplification of models. In this paper let us consider two group symmetries that regard respectively interactions that happen into the elementary universe and into the macroscopic universe, that aren't considered adequately in mainstream physics. The question in particular refers to the group symmetry relating to interactions between light and mass in the macroscopic and cosmological universe and to the group symmetry of interactions between charge and energy quantum in the microscopic and nanoscopic universe. The theoretical study of these interactions, connected with the existence of first experimental confirmations, allows then to define new physical effects.

Dark Energy/Fermion Ratio Matches E8 Symmetry, Cyclic Universe Within 2% if Annihilation Gamma Emission Energy is Included

Authors: George R. Briggs
Comments: 2 Pages. This is not an April fool's joke

Abstract: The 68.3%/26.8%% dark energy/fermion ratio matches cyclic universe, E8 symmetry theory within 2% if experimental dark matter annihilation gamma radiation energy of 36 GEV is included. This finding determines the correct theory of the origin of the universe in the author's opinion: At present this very plausible theory is completely ignored.

The Relativistic Electrodynamics Turbine

Authors: Carles R Paul, Albert Serra, Ramon Serra
Comments: 9pages

Easy experiments carried out in the dawn of electromagnetism are still being a reason for scientific articles, because its functioning contradicts some laws and rules of electromagnetic theory. Although these experiments led Einstein to discover the relativistic electrodynamics and explained its working, the scientific community had not understood this. They see in these experiments a proof against relativity and prefer to look for the solution in the electromagnetics’ theory or accept that their are an exception. By means of a long and detailed experimental study with a new design in electromagnetic engines and improvements of these experiments that we call relativistic electrodynamics turbine, we managed to explain its working using relativistic electrodynamics. The revision of these experiments had taken us to discover the real law of induction, which does not have any exceptions. The explanation of the relativistic electrodynamics turbine led us to discard the Faraday induction law and argue that the true law of induction is a consequence of the conservation of the angular momentum of the charges as the conservation of the angular momentum of the mass. Thus Einstein’s idea to unify electromagnetism and mechanics is now clear and also opens the way for new research in science

Einstein-Infeld-Hoffmann's Theory

Authors: Wenceslao Segura González
Comments: 23 Pages. Spanish

The General Relativity is a nonlinear theory, this allows the equation of motion of a particle can be deduced from the field equations. The method was developed in 1938 by Einstein, Infeld and Hoffmann. We present this theory clarifying all calculations and demonstrating the theorems involved.

Creating a Universe, a Conceptual Model

Authors: James R Johnson
Comments: 21 Pages.

Space is something. Space inherently contains laws of nature: universal rules (mathematics, space dimensions, types of forces, types of fields, and particle species), laws (relativity, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism) and symmetries (Lorentz, Gauge, and symmetry breaking). We have significant knowledge about these laws of nature because all our scientific theories assume their presence. Their existence is critical for developing either a unique theory of our universe or more speculative multiverse theories. Scientists generally ignore the laws of nature because they “are what they are” and because visualizing different laws of nature challenges the imagination. This article defines a conceptual model separating space (laws of nature) from the universe’s energy source (initial conditions) and expansion (big bang). By considering the ramifications of changing the laws of nature, initial condition parameters, and two variables in the big bang theory, the model demonstrates that traditional fine tuning is not the whole story when creating a universe. Supporting the model, space and “nothing” are related to the laws of nature, mathematics and multiverse possibilities. Speculation on the beginning of time completes the model.

E = Mc^2 and Mass Energy Equivalence Wrong

Authors: Glenn A. Baxter
Comments: Ten pages

The 9th edition, 2011, of Resnick and Halliday PHYSICS, states on page 1043 “..In 1905, (Dr.) Einstein showed that as a consequence of his theory of Special Relativity, mass can be considered to be another form of energy…An object’s mass m and the equivalent energy Eo are related by Eo = mc^2 which, without the subscript o, is the best known science equation of all time….If you continue your study of physics beyond this book, you will see more refined discussions of the relation between mass and energy. You might even encounter disagreements about just what that relation is and what it means…” The book’s current “author,” Dr. Jearl Walker, had been sent my paper disagreeing with E = mc^2 in 2008, three years before the 9th edition’s first 2011 publication. See www.k1man.com/b This current paper discusses that disagreement and shows newly organized experimental proof that E = mc^2 and mass – energy equivalence, the corner stone of 21st century Main Stream physics dogma, is wrong.
