Gravity Modification: A Review of Concepts Developed
Keywords: Momentum Exchange, Gravity, Relativity
This paper reviews concepts and models on how and why gravity modification should work. They have been developed in response to observations of proprietary electrical circuits that can change weight and the author's own experiments with the Laithwaite Effect. Much of the work presented is still in progress; and it is important to note that one can observe an evolving consistency and robustness in the approaches being developed. Gravity modification as a technology requires a new ?platform of concepts?. This paper presents one such platform, reviewing Continuity of Frames of References, Momentum Exchange Bypass (MEB), Time Dilation Transformation Model for Gravity (TDT), Centripetal versus Gravity forces, and basic problems with time travel. Continuity of Frames of Reference is explored. It hints at how interstellar travel can occur in spite of the Lorentz-Fitzgerald transformation limitations. The Continuity of Frames of Reference is an extension or generalization of the Principle of Equivalence; and has four properties, Net Cumulative, Path Independence, Reversibility, and Preservation. The Box Paradox presented in the paper demonstrates that it is our measurement of distance, and not the distance, that is different. Using frames of reference it is then shown why time travel is impossible. In light of Continuity of Frames of Reference, both Momentum Exchange Bypass and the previous Gravity Time Dilation models have been revamped and replaced with an ?orthodox? Time Dilation Transformation model that is consistent with Special Theory of Relativity. A numerical model was developed, and the results of this numerical model are presented. The most important result is that momentum exchange and a body falling under gravity, are the same phenomenon. In Time Dilation Transformation model the particle's shape of its probability cloud is distorted in the presence of time dilation. This distortion of the probability cloud causes the center of mass to shift in the direction of stronger time dilation. The effect, in the presence of a continuous nonlinear time dilation well, is called ?gravity?. It is shown that the error between the gravitational escape velocity and the equivalent Lorentz-Fitzgerald time dilation velocity is less then ? two parts per million. Momentum exchange is the interplay between particle probability cloud compression and nonlinearity of time dilation. Momentum Exchange Bypass is the intervention of the time dilation properties of a collision to ?evade? or misdirect conservation of momentum. The paper presents centripetal and gravitational forces from the perspective of non-linear time dilation and shows that this model provides consistent model behavior. Further research is still required to complete this avenue of thought. It is hoped that this paper will spur sufficient interest to enable the author access to a laser lab, to test photon reflection under a gravitational field. The Continuity of Frames of Reference suggests that photon reflection is just slightly different depending on the orientation of the photon collision with respect to the gravitational field.
