Re: What is reality? http://www.scivee.tv/node/2995/talks/256/last I've just popped in here after a long break. Parallel universes = rubbish. They don't exist. Jun 14, 2009 http://www.scivee.tv/node/2995/talks/256/last Re: Birth of a Universe http://www.scivee.tv/node/2995/talks/30/last I don't think the universe had a beginning . the big bang is a big joke . They estimate the age of the universe to be 14 billion years old . This is determined by looking at light that left a star 14 billion years ago . You can look in the other direction and find light that is 14 billion years old . The star that caused the light is crawling along at a very slow speed compaired to the light . How long did it take for the star to get to where it caused the light ? If it started as a singularity , it would have taken a lot longer to get to where it caused the light than 14 billion years . The whole concept is based on red shifting which can be explained by other things , like the ether theory . To have a universe , you really do not need a thing called time . Time is really a "non thing" . Non things are like cold . Cold is a lack of heat . A vacuum is a lack of pressure so it is pressure that exists , not vacuum . Time is a measure of motion . To have a universe , you need geometric space . 3 dimensions . You have two possibilities that can occupy the space , something or nothing . The somethings can move . They move when pushed . There are no invisible rubber bands that pull them . All forces are repulsive . Gravity is a push . In the 14 th century the pope claimed that for every event , there was a prior event , and at some point there had to be an original event . This thinking is flawed . Because of the concept of infinity , there can be no original event because there is no such thing as time . Time is a measurement of motion . It was always right now and stuff just moves . If we had a time machine and took a trip back to the beginning of time , my question would be , " What happened before that ? " Obviously like counting numbers there is no end . Likewise , if we were to travel to the edge of the universe as the big bang claims exists , my question would be , "What lies beyond ." Space has to be infinite . Time can have no beginning . Time would be more correctly referred to as a position , meaning the temporary position of all the moving objects . The ether theory was a step in the right direction to try and explain things . Problem was , they didn't get the right model of the ether theory . They actually got a few things backwards , like which way light travels . To comprehend this , you will have to take a fresh look at how things work . We are taught that light leaves the source and travels at high speed through endless distance until it is absorbed by something , ever expanding , ever weakening with distance . If light were a particle or a ray , at some point it would be like spokes in a wheel . If the distance is great , you should be able to get between the spokes and not see the object . This doesn't happen . Big arguments concern the nature of light , whether it is a particle or a wave . I think it has to be a wave . The speed of light is enormous . If we accelerate at the force of gravity for a bit less than 1 year , we will reach the speed of light . Material moving that fast is not observed in the visible universe . Cosmic rays move at about 1/10th light speed . Energy and gravity have no good explanations . They are in there with magic . These 2 things need a medium like ether to explain them . The explanation I have developed goes like this . Light doesn't travel from the source to your eye . Light is actually a measurement of the pressure of a very thin gas called ether . The gas can have different pressures in all directions simultainiously because of almost total lack of turbulence . All materials absorb the ether . The rate of absorbsion determines the color . The gas can flow through objects . The flow will drag objects with it . The flow is straight in from space to all stars and objects . The sun absorbs the ether gas which drags objects toward it . The gas becomes material when it enters the sun . That is how the sun can keep going for the billions of years . When you stoke a stove , the stove will burn out , unless you add fuel . What is stoking the sun ? To answer this you ask the question , " what is going into the sun in quantity that is relative to what is coming out of the sun ?" The answer is gravity . Gravity goes into the sun . What is gravity ? What comes out of the sun ? How does light work ? To continue , we need answers to these questions . Gravity . Gravity is caused by the drag of the flow of ether into the object . If we were to install a vacuum tube in a large room and turn on the pump , detectors at increasing distance from the tube would register pressure drops at intervals propagating away from the tube . The drop in pressure would register on the first detector . then the second and them the third and so on as far as you wanted to measure it . The pressure drops would decrease with the square of the distance . Air is the medium in the room . If we were to replace the air with the ether gas , there would be no turbulence and it would be possible to measure pressure drops from any number of sources at the same time . What comes out of the sun ? Probably just bits of material that managed escape velocity . These are the cosmic rays . Light doesn't come out of the sun and neither does heat . The ether flow into the sun creates a drop in the pressure of the gas . When we look at the sun , we actually measure this pressure with our eye . A distant star dropped the pressure and we look in that direction and measure the pressure drop . The light travels as a wave . What about the double slit experiment ? The banding can be explained by having ether leave the background toward the double slits as it follows the pressure drop toward the source . The interference pattern develops as the material naturally forms traffic patterns as it moves toward the double slits . No photons required . Nothing traveling at high speed . A more sensible explanation . With this concept , nothing has to move at light speed except the wave . There is no speed limit anymore . Gravity likely has a terminal velocity , but it is a lot higher than the light . Gravity gets to the earth from the sun almost instantly compaired to the light . The two do not have the same speed of propagation . If we were to travel near a black hole , the gravity would become greater than that on earth some light years from the hole . After falling into the hole for one year , we would be traveling faster than light unless the effect is caused by a flow . If you fall into a river , you will accelerate until your speed is the same as the river . This is terminal velocity . If we drilled a hole all the way through the earth , and jumped in and traveled to the center of the earth and stopped , how much would we weigh ? Likely we would be weightless . This sheds a new light on the concept of the pressure at the center of a large object . The world might not be hollow , but the internal pressures might not be what we think . If you light a flame , it will draw an object to it . This indicates that something is flowing into the flame and dragging the material along with it . We are taught that heat is released by the combustion and energy locked up in the fuel is released and travels to us as heat and light . I think there is no energy in the fuel . The combustion draws ether to the reaction zone and we feel the ether flow as heat . Ballistics tell the direction of the flow . If you shoot a hole in a piece of wood . a small hole is where the bullet enters and the exit side is ripped to shreds . This says the disturbance will be on the exit side of the flow . When you hold the hand to the flame , the ether flows through your hand on its way to the combustion . It doesn't disturb the entry side . The exit side has its energy level increased .
