  • Faster West than East: The GPS Invalidates Special Relativity (2013) [Updated 3 years ago]

    The one-way speed of light on the surface of the rotating Earth is determined using modern GPS technology. One method employs the GPS clock synchronization algorithm while the other is based on light speed isotropy in the Earth Centered Inertial frame that is critical to GPS operation. Using these two methods it is easily shown that light travels faster West than East relative to the surface of the Earth. This finding directly contradicts Einstein’s principle of light speed constancy and thereby invalidates the Lorentz transformations and special relativity theory for which the principle is a fundamental requirement. The Selleri transformations are presented as the space-time transformations that best represent the physical world.

  • Driving magnetic order in a manganite by ultrafast lattice excitation (2011) [Updated 9 years ago]

  • Doppler Shift Reveals Light Speed Variation BPES (2010) [Updated 4 years ago]

    Light speed variation relative to a moving observer occurring according to classical velocity composition is demonstrated using Doppler Shift. This directly contradicts the light speed invariance postulate of special relativity and confirms ether drift.


  • A Quantum Theory of Magnetism (2009) [Updated 1 decade ago]
    by Stephan J. G. Gift   read the paper:

    In this paper, a new Quantum Theory of Magnetic Interaction is proposed. This is done under a relaxation of the requirement of covariance for Lorentz Boost Transformations. A modified form of local gauge invariance in which fermion field phase is allowed to vary with each space point but not each time point, leads to the introduction of a new compensatory field different from the electromagnetic field associated with the photon. This new field is coupled to the magnetic flux of the fermions and has quanta called magnatons, which are massless spin 1 particles. The associated equation of motion yields the Poisson equation for magnetostatic potentials. The magnatons mediate the magnetic interaction between magnetic dipoles including magnets and provide plausible explanations for the Pauli exclusion principle, Chemical Reactivity and Chemical Bonds. This new interaction has been confirmed by numerical experiments. It establishes magnetism as a force entirely separate from the electromagnetic interaction and converts all of classical magnetism into a quantum theory.


  • Separating Equivalent Space-Time Theories (2009) [Updated 1 decade ago]

  • Light Speed Invariance is a Remarkable Illusion (2007) [Updated 4 years ago]

    The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad, West Indies; e-mail sgift@eng.uwi.tt Though many experiments seem to have verified the light speed invariance postulate of special relativity, this postulate is actually an unconfirmed idea. This paper proposes a resolution of this issue by first showing the manner in which an illusion of light speed invariance occurs in two-way light speed measurement in the framework of a semi-classical absolute space theory. It then demonstrates a measurable variation of the one-way speed of light, which directly invalidates the postulate and confirms the existence of the preferred reference frame of the absolute space theory.


  • Experimental Detection of the Ether (2006) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    This paper revisits the once-important subject of the luminiferous ether, and presents what we believe is a compelling empirical case to reestablish this medium as a viable physical construct. We first review the historical background leading up to the unsuccessful search for ether drift arising from the movement of Earth in its approximately uniform motion around its Sun. Following this, the failure of the Michelson-Morley and Kennedy-Thorndike second-order ether-drift detection experiments is explained by the experimentally established Fitzgerald-Lorentz-Larmour contractions. Two well-known first-order experiments are then presented and it is shown that the associated optical phenomena represent detection of ether drift occurring as a result of the revolving Earth. The analysis of these two experiments is done in the framework of an absolute space, and takes the Fitzgerald-Lorentz-Larmour contractions fully into account. Our results (along with the considerable data that accumulated up to the end of the 19th century) provide direct experimental confirmation of the existence of the luminiferous ether-the great dream of Michelson and Morley - and completely invalidate Einstein?s Special Relativity Theory.


  • A Theory of Space and Time: Answering the Challenge of the President of the NPA (2005) [Updated 4 years ago]

    This paper decidedly answers the challenge of the President of the Natural Philosophy Alliance to find a replacement theory for the Special Theory of Relativity by the year 2005, around which a majority of ?non-relativists' can converge and coalesce. We do so by drawing attention to an existing consistent theory of space and time that is derived from the work of Maxwell, Lorentz, Fitzgerald, Larmour and Ives. It is a semi-classical ether-based theory that is in precise agreement with special relativity over its full range of cor-rect predictions and importantly is viewed by the physics establishment as being a viable alternative. We take a critical step necessary for the acceptance of this semi-classical theory by demonstrating detection of its associated preferred reference frame-the ether-precisely the frame that Michelson and Morley failed to detect in 1887 and which special relativity strictly forbids. This detection is accomplished using two well-known physical phenomena. The detection of the ether, which has eluded discovery for over 100 years, immediately invalidates special relativity since this theory prohibits the existence of a preferred reference frame. As Martin Gardener said, ?if Michelson and Morley had detected an ether wind, the special theory would have been ruled out from the start?.


  • A Unified Theory of Spin 0 Nuclear Interactions (1998) [Updated 1 decade ago]
    by Stephan J. G. Gift   read the paper:

    A Gauge Theory that contains the pion triplet as strong force quanta, a quantum theory of gravity and unifies the strong (nuclear) and gravitational interactions is proposed under a relaxation of the requirement of covariance for Lorentz boost transformations. A modified form of local gauge invariance in which the nucleon field phase is allowed to vary with each time point but not each space point leads to the introduction of a new compensatory field. The quanta of this field are massless spin 0 particles that propagate at the speed of light. They are interpreted as gravitons which mediate the Newtonian gravitational force. It is suggested that the universality of the interaction is linked with the conservation of mass. The associated equation of motion yields Newton''s Inverse Square Law for the static case and, because of retardation of potentials, gives rise to a precession of planetary orbits. A qualitative indication of the energy loss observed in the binary pulsar PSR1913+16 within the Newtonian framework is also given. A modification of the Yang?Mills invariance is applied to nucleons. It requires the strong interaction between nucleons to be invariant under independent rotations of the isotopic spin at each time point but not each space point. This results in the introduction of a triplet of compensating fields having massless spin 0 quanta that are interpreted as massless pions. An SU(2)?U(1) theory combining isotopic spin and lsquohypermassrsquo symmetries is then developed. Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking yields three massive particles (along with a Higgs particle) and one massless particle. The three massive particles have mass, spin and charge that identify them as pions, while the single massless spin 0 particle, which couples to the nucleons with a strength proportional to mass, is interpreted as the spin 0 graviton. The model provides a resolution of one of the outstanding puzzles of theoretical physics: why gravity is so much weaker than the other forces of nature.
