Experiments to Determine the Mass Related Lightspeed Extinction Volume

Authors: Leo Vuyk
Comments: 15 Pages. 15

According to Einstein’s relativity theory, is the speed of light for every observer the same in all reference frames. However, there seem to be incidental differences in the lightspeed if we observe the outliers of GPS satellite to CHAMP satellite distance measurements of 180m. At the same time in the literature I found tiny structural but characteristic unexplained irregularities in Planetary radar-pulse reflection measurements, made by I.I. Shapiro in 1964, between the Earth and Venus. Both observations support the idea of the existence of ellipsoidal lightspeed extinction (or vacuum adaptation) volumes around massive objects like the earth. Such a volume I will call LASOF or Local Asymmetric Oscillating Vacuum Frame. Other historic lightspeed experiments support the idea that all objects with mass are equipped with some extinction volume. As a consequence I propose new triangular trajectory lightspeed comparison experiments between the earth and dual satellites or dual balloons and even in the laboratory to support these lightspeed extinction and adaptation ideas.

What Does Free-Fall Acceleration Due to Gravity Tell Us About the Speed of Light in the Space of the Earth?

Authors: Ron Bourgoin
Comments: 2 pages.

It is a surprise to learn that free-fall acceleration in the space of the earth actually indicates that the speed of light in earth's space is reduced. We calculate the indicated reduction.

What the Null Energy Condition Tells us About Gravitational Wave Frequencies in / for Relic Cosmology?

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 17 pages, one table. Attempt to start preparing for bridge to actual experimental measurements. Based upon some structural considerations as far as space time geometry.

We introduce a criterion as to the range of HFGW generated by early universe conditions. The 1 to 10 Giga Hertz range is constructed initially starting with what Grupen writes as far as what to expect of GW frequencies which can be detected assuming a sensitivity of h ~ 10-27 . From there we examine the implications of an earlier Hubble parameter at the start of inflation , and a phase transition treatment of pre to post Planckian inflaton physics. We close with an analysis of how gravitational constant G may vary with time , the tie in with the NEC condition and how to select a range of relic GW frequencies.

What Violations of the Null Energy Condition Tell us About Information Exchange Between Prior to Present Universes? How to Obtain Spectral Index Confirmation?

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 17 pages.

The universe is now dominated by DE leading to renewed acceleration, so what we can do is to examine how DE arose in the first place, and what role cosmologies not obeying the null energy condition play in terms of facilitating information exchange from a prior to the present universe. So how do we test for this, and what are the data collection protocols? Based upon a Rencontres De Moriond, 2008 article, we present a glimpse as to how to ascertain data collection procedures via inputs into a spectral index model.

Is Nature Fundamentally Continuous or Discrete, and What Violations of the Null Energy Condition Tell us About Information Exchange Between Prior to Present Universes ?

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 19 pages, one figure one table. Two themes. First that Octonionic gravity breaks down

Our contention, is that reality is actually analog, but that at a critical limit, as when the Octonian gravity condition kicks in, that for a time it is made to appear discrete. This due to an initial phase transition just at the start of the big bang. Our second consideration is, that symmetry breaking models, i.e. the Higgs boson are in themselves not appropriate or necessary for the formation of particles with mass just before Octonionic gravity which could arise in pre Planckian physics models without a potential. Also the necessity of potentials for pre Octonionic gravity physics can be circumvented via judicious use of Sherrer k essence physics The universe is now dominated by DE leading to renewed acceleration, so what we can do is to examine how DE arose in the first place, and what role cosmologies not obeying the null energy condition play in terms of facilitating information exchange from a prior to the present universe.

Helical CMBR Asymmetry, Pre Big 'Bang' State, Dark Matter and the Axis of Evil, The Architecture of the Universes

Authors: Peter A. Jackson
Comments: 5 pages.

We describe a solution to Cosmic Microwave background Radiation (CMBR) quadrupolar asymmetry and anisotropy, predicted by the discrete field model (DFM) described in earlier papers, and explain how it could have taken it's spiral, or, we predict; 'helical' form. Also explaining the so called 'axis of evil', and the big bang, (or more appropriately big 'whoosh'), and implied pre big bang conditions. We provide logical and photographic evidence. Apparent 'magic bullet' properties of the DFM and are found as part of a falsification exercise which has recently also provided a new galactic secular evolutionary sequence. We explore how the model unites Relativity with a Quantum mechanism, using the postulates of Special Relativity (SR) but applies conceptual refinement to one assumption for a better fit to observation and improved understanding, giving it a basis precisely equivalent to General relativity (GR) and better defining Quantum mechanics. We find a 3rd way, with fields but no absolute frame, with no new physics or maths but using a different way of thinking, as anticipated necessary by Einstein and Bragg. This is an interim report pending consideration of further fuller papers, which will be followed up here.

Entropy Production and a Toy Model as to Irregularities in the CMBR Spectrum

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 36 pages, 15 pages of article, 21 pages of optional appendix entries. Sent to Pre space time editor, Johanthan Dickau, where I expect it to undergo drastic revisions. NO problem.

While assuming the relatively narrow spectrum of graviton frequencies in the onset of inflation, it is necessary to examine how this could tie into instanton-anti-instanton production. We do so via a thermal input from the prior universe model. We also discuss how the break up of such structure could influence later inflationary cosmology -physics. The following paper attempts a thought experiment as to how to present a genesis of irregularites in the CMBR spectrum. This is not meant to be a substitute for Sakar's ground breaking work, but an addendium as to how the initially very smooth start of inflation could lead to the pronounced irregularities Dr. Sarkar commented upon.

Open Questions as to What a Large Vacuum Energy Implies for Graviton Production in a Relic Setting, I.e. a Toy Model to Consider

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 6 pages. 3 tables, 1 figure. Meant as a companion piece to the Octonionic gravity work done earlier for possible inclusion in the Nova Book Chapter of Cosmology.

If we have a non infinite but huge negative value of the cosmological vacuum energy in the wormhole, then we have 1010 bits of computing information. When we leave the wormhole, we have 10120 bits of computing information We specify a transition between the two regions in terms of a causal discontinuity regime created by a(t) chaotic behavior due initially to the initially very large value of thermal vacuum energy transmitted. Note that this is a toy model to account for thermal transfer of energy from a prior to a present universe perhaps enabling graviton production. This is a companion piece to the Octonian gravity document.

Several Routes to Determining Entropy Generation in the Early Universe

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 10 pages. Submitted to the Hadronic journal, to senior Editor, Christian Corda, PhD

We analyze how entropy could be generated via a semi classical argument as well as by multiple braneanti brane combinations leading to an initial soliton-instanton formation. The supposition is that the two different types of methods give similar initial conditions for entropy and information/ computational bits of information in the initial universe. We close then with observations we think are pertinent to entropy increase . This is linkable to a table of computational bits as presented by Smoot in 2007.

Detailing Coherent, Minimum Uncertainty States of Gravitons, as Semi Classical Components of Gravity Waves, and How Squeezed States Affect Upper Limits to Graviton Mass

Authors: A. Beckwith, F.Y. Li, N. Yang, J. Dickau, G. Stephenson, L. Glinka, R. Baker
Comments: 31 pages, companion piece to the following two articles. A.W. Beckwith, ” Energy content of Gravition as a way to Quantify both Entropy and Information Generation in the early Universe”, accepted for publication in JMP, February 2011 Is Octonionic Quantum Gravity Relevant Near the Planck Scale? if Gravity Waves Are Generated by Changes in the Geometry of the Early Universe, How Can We Measure Them?

This document will out line what the authors suppose is relevant to squeezed states of initial space time and how that affects both the composition of relic GW, and also gravitons. A side issue to consider is if gravitons can be configured as semi classical "particles" , which is akin to the Pilot model of Quantum Mechanics as embedded in a larger non linear 'deterministic' background. In addition, as the main author has discussed with Stuart Allen in long evening talks, the relative classical embedding of QM will be linkable to upper bounds to the graviton mass, for reasons brought up in the manuscript.

The Big Bash Alternative Model of the Universe

Authors: Mickey Thompson
Comments: 12 Pages. Please replace version 3 of the paper with the attached version 4.

Evidence of a big bang is overwhelming and most scientists accept that we live in a region of space that began its expansion some 13.8 billion years ago. The currently supported model of the universe, however, has encountered several anomalies that are not well accommodated by that model. This paper presents an analysis of these anomalies and presents an alternative model that seems to better fit the data. It also provides an architecture that’s predictive of much additional evidence we might expect to encounter in the near future. This new model is based on the view that dark energy; matter/antimatter disparity; cosmic microwave background texture; anthropic conditions; and the genesis of early stars and galaxies are a coherent body of evidence which suggests that the big bang did not occur in an empty void.
