Mr. G.L.R. sent along this article this week, and I found it so utterly fascinating that I have to blog about it in my usual hack-from-South-Dakota high octane way. If a scientist at the University of Geneva's ideas should be proven to be true, then one fundamental conceptual pillar of the modern scientific cosmology, dark matter, may go the way of the old aether lumeniferous of the 19th century, while the latter may have just been "updated" a bit. Here's the article:

Dark matter and dark energy: do they really exist?

What really caught my eye in this was the following paragraph:

The way we represent the universe and its history are described by Einstein’s equations of general relativity, Newton’s universal gravitation and quantum mechanics. The model-consensus at present is that of a big bang followed by an expansion. “In this model, there is a starting hypothesis that hasn’t been taken into account, in my opinion”, says André Maeder, honorary professor in the Department of Astronomy in UNIGE’s Faculty of Science. “By that I mean the scale invariance of the empty space; in other words, the empty space and its properties do not change following a dilatation or contraction.” The empty space plays a primordial role in Einstein’s equations as it operates in a quantity known as a “cosmological constant”, and the resulting universe model depends on it. Based on this hypothesis, Maeder is now re-examining the model of the universe, pointing out that the scale invariance of the empty space is also present in the fundamental theory of electromagnetism. (All emphases added)

In effect, what Dr. Maeder is saying is that in any large explosion - such as the Big Bang - the properties or, if one will, the "lattice structure" of space remains unchanged, they are "scale invariant" (which is to oversimplify what "scale invariance" means). This, he is arguing, is the hidden and unchallenged assumption lurking beneath modern cosmological physics, and it is this assumption that has led to the hypothesized "dark matter" and "dark energy."

But what if a large enough explosion actually cause compressions and rarefactions within that lattice work itself? In other words, what if a sufficiently large explosion could, like a large mass in Einstein's general relativity, cause space-time to warp into "compressed" and "stretched" regions? What if such explosions actually sent out longitudinal waves in the medium itself? With this idea, we're back, in some respects, to the old 19th century idea of an aether lumeniferous, but unlike that idea, of a "compressible" aether.

Now, for readers of my books, and particularly of The Nazi International, this idea is going to sound very familiar, for a similar idea was posed by the Nazi scientist, Dr. Ronald Richter, working with his plasmas and the idea of nuclear fusion for Juan Peron in the 1950s, and it will sound an awfully lot like the speculation that a very large nuclear or thermonuclear explosion could itself create a similar longitudinal wave or warp of compression and rarefaction in the medium. Indeed, many within the realm of Ufology have speculated for years that one reason Ufos show up so quickly and in such large numbers after World War Two is precisely that "they" somehow "detected" the first nuclear explosions, and I have speculated on the idea that if this hypothesis is true, then it may be because "they" had some means of detecting such longitudinal waves.

So what's Maeder's twist? Judging from the article and crawling way out on the twig of speculation, it would appear that what he is saying is that space remains scale invariant even after these temporary "dilations and compressions," or, if one reads into it a great deal, one might infer that the size of the event - the Big Bang, or a much smaller nuclear explosion - will inevitably create such dilations and compressions in each and every case, and that eventually, space "snaps back" into its ground state configuration, i.e., that it is invariant over a period of time, notwithstanding temporary alterations. If that be the case, then it would also appear that he is saying that space, at every point, is in a state of (scalar!) stress and equilibrium, and that the slightest disturbance will create those ripples. And, if one recalls Dr. Richter, a natural detector and transducer of such a phenomenon would be a plasma under stress, for as those "ripples and dilations" move through it, they could add (and could conceivably damp under certain conditions) energy in its reactions. If all this be true, then Dr. Maeder's hypothesis would also go a long way to explain why calculations of early thermonuclear explosive yields, such as in the infamous Castle Bravo test, could be so significantly awry of what actually took place, without resorting to the clumsy and inadequate explanations that our thermonuclear chemists did not know that the lithium-7 in the fuel mixture would also enter the reaction, an historically problematical explanation, as I pointed out in The Nazi International.

Here, as always, science moves slowly and deliberately, and time, of course, will tell...

See you on the flip side...

    Fascinating potential intersection between several items

    – the concept of a compressible aether
    – the interesting effects that rotating electrical systems have
    – the whirling apparatus on many of the machines depicted by Charles Dellschau
    – and the work of a small project going by the name of Space Warp Dynamics.

    electric universe anyone? red shifting expanding universe?

    halton arp proved it decades ago. the big bang is a bad joke.

    ironic that even the corporati propagandists can’t hide that arp was right all along. and so were and are all the electric universe proponents like tesla, don scott, dave talbott, wal thornhill, …..

    and now they’re proving how intensely useless and fruitless that the vast majority of astrophysics is today

    with some funding from some usual and unusual suspects who cannot afford to be left behind with physics that have clearly been wrong for decades if not centuries.

    I rather see it put as ‘Einstein’s’ equations
    more likely Lorentz, Poinclare and Mrs Einstein as per.
    I suppose they will get the credit when there is blame to be had.
    if fake, the best one ever I have seen. Hollywood’s ET go home.

    Said it before.. will say it again.. Black Matter doesnt exist.
    You cant change the facts to fit the theory..

    Lets see if they get to the truth about time within the next 6 months..

    Ben Rich, former head of Lockheed Martin’s “Skunkworks” division that produced all the “stealth” aircraft, was once quoted off the record as saying “there was a mistake in the calculations and that now we have the ability to take E.T. home”.
    Maybe this was the “mistake” he was speaking of.

    • Kahlypso on November 27, 2017 at 7:01 am

      not counting in base 12 was the error… hehe

      • goshawks on November 27, 2017 at 11:01 pm

        Agreed. And 360 degree circle. Hard to miss…

    Looks like they’re ready to get some “corrections” in the dogma, to coincide w/the next phase of “discoveries”, so that they can expand the empire’s control horizons –
    towards Buzz Lightyear’s, “Infinity & Beyond”, aspirations.

    Was there an increase in UFOs to observe the Fukushima accident? Any other nuclear bomb/disaster? I’d like to believe that “others” can detect nuclear use in the universe.

    Is this not all part of an expanding universe? Would this not, of course, include an expanding earth? My uncle Tom Davis, a geologist, who had a radio show with Mae Brussell explained this to us all over 30 years ago.

    • DanaThomas on November 27, 2017 at 2:22 am

      Thanks Hidden Wally and kudos to your uncle.

    • Robert Barricklow on November 27, 2017 at 11:49 am

      Thanks for the link Hidden Wally.
      Loved It!

    But Maeder is assuming that the model in which the universe is expanding is the correct one.

    While there are huge problems and holes in that story.

    Dark matter is contained within Chora. It blurs the outline of categories. It is black fire, essentially. Thinking is categorical, and Chora blurs away thinking into no thinking. Just like silence between notes.

    When Narcissus is pebbling the pond, he observes the rippling effect on the surface, that dwindles away. Vacuum is a “medium”, that appears out of nowhere. It is an opening between worlds. It is like drowning in multitude of everything.

    Noise-canceling headphones is interesting technology. It means that Chora can be “created”. Deep silence can be frightening, if one is not ready to go. In a way, deep space is the trumpet of an angel. Pyramid is an angel harp.

    Yes, atomic blast causes stress on spatiotemporal fabric, and reveals a glimpse behind the curtain. That is normal. Frozen time is like noise-canceling technology. It is like autism with no timeline – just phone line – caught in the NOW.

    I’ve always called dark matter and dark energy Harry Potter physics. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    If ~93% of the mass/energy of the observable universe is missing according to your theory, then perhaps your theory is the problem, and not the universe?

    (A small ‘speech’ modification to your article: “Explosion” implies a within and a without. The Big Bang is theorized as ‘without a without’, and would not qualify as an explosion. It has no center, just universal expansion after coming into existence.)

    I recently read a science article within the Nov-Dec 2017 issue of Analog: Science Fiction and Fact magazine. In it, physicist John G. Cramer wrote “Dark Matter Gets Darker: Wimps or Axions?” about the continuing absence of evidence for WIMPs and other Dark Matter candidates after large-scale experimental DM detectors were built. He went far enough to say that, if testing does not show DM particles fairly quickly, physicists may have to go back to the drawing board for entirely new concepts to explain the observed gravity-based ‘anomalies’…

    • Robert Barricklow on November 26, 2017 at 12:58 pm

      Loved your deeply probing “no without” analyses.

      LUX-ZEPLIN project to detect dark matter in the Dr.’s home state (the Sanford Underground Research Facility [SURF] Large Underground Xenon detector is at the bottom of a gold mine in Lead, S.D., so some commentators refer to it as the Lead Zeplin project):

      • goshawks on November 27, 2017 at 11:06 pm

        Yes, physicist Dr. Cramer mentioned that detector in his article, and how it was not reporting any WIMP detections. They are supposed to rebuild it to higher Xenon capacity and try again…
