  • The Michelson Tragedy
    by John-Erik Persson on November 14, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    The Michelson Tragedy (PDF including diagram) The Michelson Tragedy john.erik.persson@gmail.com Abstract The Michelson-Morley tests, that were done in 1881 and 1887, are still questioned. So, we have reasons, even today, to discuss what does these experiments mean. The dispute between Michelson and Potier is discussed in this article. Michelson’s tests Michelson had a remarkable skill […]

  • Michelson-Morley Explained
    by John-Erik Persson on October 18, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    MMichelsonp The link contains PDF with diagram Michelson-Morley explained john.erik.persson@gmail.com Abstract Short and popularized version of the famous experiments called MMX. We can see that in reality it is Michelson’s – not Potier’s version that is the correct one. The equipment A light source produced wave fronts that was split up by a beam splitter […]

  • A Dispute In Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on October 17, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    A Scientific Dispute john.erik.persson@gmail.com (The link contains PDF doc with diagrams) Abstract This short article is about the debate between 1882 and 1887 regarding Michelson’s and Potier’s opinions about light behavior, in the experiments that Michelson did together with Morley. The unhappy result of this debate had a devastating effect for the development of physics. […]

  • Potier was wrong
    by John-Erik Persson on August 17, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    This article explains how time dilation has been used to cover up for a mistake, that was introduced by Potier, when Einstein was a child. Potier did not observe that mirrors are transparent to the ether wind, and therefore the mirrors are controlling c only – and not c+v. Potier’s mistake Potier reduced Michelson’s prediction […]

  • Non reality of time and new relativity theory.
    by Didier Viel on August 15, 2018 at 7:45 am

    Throughout the ages, time was an essential question for physicists and even more at present. Nowadays, physicists are trying to unify Quantum Mechanics and Einstein General Relativity theory, to get an overall theory, which would represent completely the universe, from infinitely small dimensions to infinitely large, and time is a major element for this unification. […]

  • An experiment to demonstrate the first order anisotropy of the propagation of electromagnetic (EM) waves in interplanetary space
    by Jim Marsen on August 11, 2018 at 2:03 am

    I propose the following experiment to unambiguously and irrefutably demonstrate the first order anisotropy of the propagation of electromagnetic (EM) waves in interplanetary space to decisively disprove Einstein’s Relativity paradigm. It will demonstrate that the one-way propagation time of an EM signal between two nearby spacecraft orbiting the Sun is different for a signal sent […]

  • A model for light
    by John-Erik Persson on August 4, 2018 at 11:55 pm

    This post is about the duality between ray and beam as representations for light direction. In Michelson and Morley’s tests (MMX) the difference is only 10^-6 radians and not observed. In coherent systems the ether wind inside the wave fronts becomes irrelevant and the ray concept must be used. Coherent systems In coherent systems refracting […]

  • Einstein Was Wrong - Who Was Right?
    by John-Erik Persson on July 9, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Abstract Dissidents have spent lots of time on Einstein, but has not observed what happened when Einstein was only 3 years old. At that time Potier wrote a paper, stating that Michelson’s prediction for his experiments, (MMX), with Morley, were interpreted in error by Michelson. Michelson had assumed light to take the fastest – not shortest […]

  • CNPS 2018 A Great Success!
    by David de Hilster on July 2, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    The 4th edition of the CNPS conferences (and almost 30th edition of the combined NPA / CNPS conferences) was a resounding success. Live Broadcast to YouTube For the first time, there was multi-camera live coverage of the event. The coverage had up to 4 camera angles and the slides of the presenters were piped directly […]

  • Euclide's Mistakes
    by John-Erik Persson on June 21, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    The fifth postulate In Euclid’s geometry, regarding a plane, he uses the concepts point and straight line. He postulates, that a point and a straight line together can define a unique straight line, parallel to the given line and passing through the given point. However, he never provided a proof for this postulate – the […]

  • The Confusion in Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on June 11, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    Einstein’s relativity Einstein’s relativity is not good physics, but rather a very bad philosophy. Einstein’s works demonstrate high creativity, but are combined with little self critique. The many errors have the ironic effect of splitting up the opposition and thereby making it difficult to refute Einstein’s ideas. His ideas contains many theories, with and without […]

  • Michelson Was Right
    by John-Erik Persson on May 5, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    Our problem is that mainstream refuses to talk to us, when we say that Einstein was wrong. I, and prof Hartwig Thim in Linz, have another problem and that is that CNPS members refuse to talk to us when we say that Lorentz also was wrong. I am still waiting for response on my book […]

  • The Michelson-Morley Scandal
    by John-Erik Persson on April 27, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    The wave or particle confusion, and the twin paradox, were created when Einstein was a child, by Lorentz and other scientists. This great error in physics was done when they together abolished Michelson’s prediction for the Michelson-Morley tests. So, Einstein and Lorentz were wrong and Michelson was right, when he stated no effect in the […]

  • Dorm-Style Room Accommodations at CNPS 2018
    by David de Hilster on April 5, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    This year’s conference at the University of Connecticut is being held in the beautiful Nathan Hale Inn on the UConn campus and offers economy rooms to guests of the 2018 CNPS International Conference. With 3 people to a room, rooms cost $69 a night plus tax. This all information about other accommodations can be found […]

  • Kinetic Theory and Flatlining of Polyatomic Gases
    by Kent William Mayhew on March 26, 2018 at 11:07 pm

      Kinetic Theory and Flatlining of Polyatomic Gases Hello everyone at CNPS I have not blogged in a while but still I am working on getting people interested in the rewriting of thermodynamics. Part of this path includes changing the way that we envision and teach kinetic theory. Just to remind you. In simplest context […]

  • The Growing Earth, Moon, and Sun
    by Eugene A. Ellis on March 19, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    In an expanding universe, all matter that matters consists of elemental atoms. We can “see” elements, but not their atoms. All elements are different from one another as are their atoms. Before ionization, an element would be classified as unchanging dark matter. Everything changes the first time an element ionizes. Here, the element becomes spectra-visible […]

  • The Creation of a Paradox
    by John-Erik Persson on March 11, 2018 at 1:41 pm

    Abstract A Potier created a paradox 136 years ago, by changing Michelson’s prediction for the experiments (MMX), that he did with Morley. Potier reduced the prediction by half, and the missing part was later used by Lorentz to motivate the absurd concept dilation of time. The mistake was repeated by Einstein in his light clock. […]

  • Its about time to see the light and the etheric ether
    by John-Erik Persson on February 15, 2018 at 11:37 pm

    Light motion Light is a wave motion, which means that light propagates in spherical or plane wave fronts. We describe these wave fronts by their normals, which is the ray direction. Therefore, the ray is, by definition, always orthogonal to wave fronts. The ray has no physical existence. The wave front instead has the physical existence. The […]

  • A completion to my earlier post
    by John-Erik Persson on January 21, 2018 at 11:47 am

    A prejudice My interpretation of MMX includes a very small motion in transverse direction that can fool some people to regard the idea impossible. However, assuming the ether entrained by the Sun means that we must give the same capacity to the Earth. So, ether wind is only 10^-6 due to rotating Earth, in horizontal direction. […]
