Was the “gravitational-wave experiment” worth its $1.1 billion cost to the tax payer ? Is there any substance to the outlandish claims seen across MSM headlines recently about those elusive “gravitational waves” supposedly detected? The answer is, of course, NO.
The detailed rebuttal below proves the whole thing is yet another money-making scam courtesy of government sponsored “science”.
Gravity Waves of Propaganda – the Sequel
By Miles Mathis
The discovery of gravity waves has been announced. Again. In this exposé I will first analyze the mainstream announcements. I will then look at the actual scientific paper, showing you how to read it.
I have to say this for them: these people never quit. If they get caught in one spectacular lie, they just wait a year and a half and come back with another one. I guess they are relying on the short memory of most people, but when I heard this announcement of gravity waves today, I said to myself, “Didn’t they already do this? Didn’t we get a huge announcement of gravity waves in early 2014? Didn’t Alan Guth win a million-dollar prize for that?” In fact, he did. He—along with Alexei Starobinsky and Andre Linde—won the Kavli Prize in July 2014, so 3 million was allegedly paid out.
According to mainstream stories at the time, the proximate cause of these prizes was the discovery of gravity waves by BICEP2 on March 17, 2014. Of course all those stories from 2014 have been rewritten, downplaying the claim of gravity waves and playing up the alleged discovery of cosmic inflation. However, within a few months (after the publication of my rushing paper of March 18) they had to admit this announcement was not only horribly premature, it was flat wrong.
To save face, they claimed that dust in the Milky Way exactly mimicked the signature of gravity waves. This despite having claimed in the peer-reviewed papers in March that they had ruled that out and claiming a positive detection at sigma 7.
A sigma of 7 indicated that BICEP2 only admitted a .0000000001% chance they were wrong. That’s 1 in 10 billion. Funny, then, that they had to admit they were wrong only a couple of months later. Strange how it always works out that way, whether they are claiming faster-than-light detections, dark matter detections, or whatever.
At the time, we were told BICEP2 beat out their main competitors in the search for gravity waves, the LIGO team. LIGO congratulated the BICEP2 team for their earth-shattering discovery. Well, it is LIGO’s turn now, since they have now claimed a gravity wave detection. Do they have a third team in the wings, I wonder, just in case this one also ends up in ruins?
They had better, because I can already tell the whole thing is manufactured from nothing. The first clue is that the paper is once again hiding behind 1,000 authors. We saw the same thing with the manufactured Higgs detection, which I believe had even more authors than that. The truth doesn’t need such a large bandwagon.
But I knew even before the first clue, since I know gravity waves don’t exist. I assume all these “physicists” know it, too, but the truth doesn’t butter anyone’s bread. Einstein knew it. They admit in the articles that Einstein twice told the world gravity waves don’t exist. They tell you he flip-flopped both times, saying they did exist, but they don’t tell you why Einstein flipped. He flipped under pressure from the mainstream, who didn’t like him telling the truth. We see this all the time in all subjects: someone blows the whistle on some big project, the spooks visit him and twist his arm, and suddenly he changes his mind. This is what happened with Einstein.
Gravity waves can’t be a vindication of General Relativity as they claim, since in General Relativity gravity isn’t a force: it is just curved math. Beyond that, according to Einstein, GR isn’t mediated by particles and has no background. In GR there is no ether, remember? So what are gravity waves supposed to be made of? What is waving? We get no sensible answer to that to this day. Physics today is nothing but a huge pile of ever-growing nonsense. Since I know you can’t detect something that doesn’t exist, I know this detection is manufactured without further study.
Here is all it says concerning that in the announcements: According to the equations physicists have settled on, gravitational waves would compress space in one direction and stretch it in another as they traveled outward. But according to Einstein, there is no space in that sense. According to the stated postulates of GR, space is not something that could be compressed or stretched, since it is neither an ether nor a physical background of any material sort. For Einstein, space could be curved, and it could be curved simply by applying the tensor calculus to it—which already contained the curves. But the tensor calculus has no mechanism for stretching or compressing space.
To say it another way, there is no possible mechanism for gravity to work on space in that way. The theory of gravity waves is outrageously non-mechanical and non-physical. This is why they used to search for gravitons. Although GR also has no use for gravitons—since gravity as curved space does not require a mediating particle—the mainstream used to look for gravitons because they knew they needed them to sell this gravity wave nonsense. To compress space, you need something in the space to be compressed.
With gravitons, you can say that individual gravitons are getting nearer, indicating compression. Compression is then a function of particle densities. But as it is, “compressing space” has no physical meaning. You can’t compress a vacuum, because there is nothing to respond to pressure. It is words without physical content. In this latest announcement, we are told mirrors in the arms of LIGO moved .004 the diameter of a proton, indicating that two black holes were colliding somewhere in the distance. Where? We aren’t told. We are only told that one of them was 36 times as massive as the Sun and the other 29 times as massive. In the collision three Solar masses were released.
Where did they get those numbers? They just made them up out of thin air. OK, but what indication do we have the movement of the mirrors was caused by that rather than anything else? The signal conformed precisely to the predictions of general relativity for black holes as calculated in computer simulations, Dr. Reitze said. Really? That’s all we get? You can see why I now think this is all a joke.
These people don’t even try to fake the scientific method anymore. In that method, you would have to cross off all the other causes of that tiny motion. Since you can’t possibly do that in this case, assigning the motion to hypothetical black holes is just a farce. At The Guardian, it says, The finding completed the scientific arc of prediction, discovery and confirmation: first they calculated what they should be able to detect, then decided what the evidence should look like, and then devised the experiment that clinched the matter. Which is why on Thursday scientists around the world were able to hail the announcement as yet another confirmation of their “standard model” of the cosmos, and the beginning of a new era of discovery. They missed something there, didn’t they? That isn’t the “arc of science”, is it? It is missing a couple of important steps. After deciding what the evidence might look like, they should be required to show that the evidence they have found is coming from the source they claim. That have utterly failed to do that.
There is zero evidence this came from a collision of black holes, and they don’t even try to point to the black hole that was allegedly formed by the collision. In addition, they should be required to show that the evidence found isn’t coming from any other more likely sources.
To start with, how could you possibly damp this machine from all other tiny wiggles? LIGO’s antennae are 2.5 miles long. So in the first instance, it should act like a gigantic seismometer, reacting to every least motion on the surface of the Earth, from whatever cause. Since you could not possibly damp it from that, you would have to monitor seismic activity in another way and subtract it out. Could you do that down to the level of a proton? No.
But even if you could, you would be up against an infinitude of other problems. What about the charge field of the Earth? Even if you don’t believe in the charge field, I can get you here by just renaming it heat. You don’t believe in the heat of the Earth? Well, the heat emitted by the Earth varies over both time and place, so again you would have another large variation you would either have to damp or subtract out. Could you do that down to the level of a proton. No.
LIGO’s antennas are L-shaped, with perpendicular arms 2.5 miles long. Inside each arm, cocooned in layers of steel and concrete, runs the world’s largest bottle of nothing, a vacuum chamber a couple of feet wide containing 2.5 million gallons of empty space. At the end of each arm are mirrors hanging by glass threads, isolated from the bumps and shrieks of the environment better than any Rolls-Royce ever conceived. Does that answer either one of my questions so far? No, it just begs thousands of others. Creating a vacuum chamber is meaningless, either as a matter or damping, seismic effects, or heat effects. The only effects addressed by a vacuum chamber are effects of air moving in the tunnels. Since these long concrete arms are surrounded by earth and air, they must respond to it.
And since the mirrors are connected to the tunnel walls by threads, they will react just as the walls do. This set-up just guarantees that whatever is felt by the walls will be felt by the mirrors. That is the opposite of damping. Given the variability of the Earth’s environment, we should be very surprised to find zero motion of the mirrors in these tunnels. We would expect to see ripples of many sorts, none of them caused by a compression of space or by distant black holes. As just one example, you can’t create a charge vacuum. Even if they empty these tunnels of all ions and molecules, the tunnels will still be stiff with charge.
Why? Many reasons.
One, both charge and heat pass through material, including concrete.
Two, the walls themselves emit charge.
Three, the Earth is recycling charge through its body all the time.
This is what creates the ionosphere, the magnetosphere, and the atmosphere itself. This recycling, though fairly steady, is not a constant. It is determined by input from the Sun, the galactic core, and even by charge returning to the Sun by the big outer planets. All these factors cause variations in the charge field, and it is far more likely this is what we are seeing with LIGO (assuming we aren’t just seeing minor local seismic activity—activity which is itself caused by charge field variations).
You begin to see the enormity of the problem. Remember, mainstream physicists admit to being ignorant of the make-up of 95% of the universe. That is what they call dark matter. Dark matter doesn’t just exist “out there”. It exists everywhere, which means 95% of the matter here on Earth is— or may be—unknown. With an unknown of that size in the local field, how can these physicists know that what they are detecting is distant black holes? It might be dark matter ripples in the tunnel vacuum for all they know. The point is, with an unknown that large, there is simply no way to cross off other possibilities. You cannot cross off dark matter as the cause of this detection if you don’t even know what dark matter is, can you?
In fact, this is probably why they ignore large parts of the scientific method now. With unknowns of that size in the field, they can’t do any sort of theorizing, much less claim detections with a sigma of 7. A sigma of 7 in a field of 95% ignorance is impossible by definition. Now, I have shown that things aren’t really that bad. Since I have shown that dark matter is just charge, I am able to resolve that 95% error and do theory with some amount of confidence. But since they have not figured out what I have figured out, and do not accept my equations, they cannot.
Not only can they not do any sensible theory, they cannot begin to look at other causes of this current detection and subtract them out. If they don’t know about charge recycling by the Earth, they cannot possibly model it and cross it off as the cause of this detection, you see. I am not saying they aren’t detecting something here. I find the antennae interesting, and assume the wiggles are caused by something other than “random” fluctuations. But my first assumption would be these “hiccups” they are detecting are coming up from the belly of the Earth, and are caused by charge variations there.
Or they could be caused by hiccups in the belly of the Sun (or corona), which then cause charge ripples that travel through the Earth. Either way, the likelihood is very high the hiccups are caused locally, and I doubt we will have to look beyond the Sun to find them. In the actual scientific paper, we are told The detectors’ susceptibility to environmental disturbances was quantifed by measuring their response to specially generated magnetic, radio-frequency, acoustic, and vibration excitations.
See, nothing about charge there. Nothing about heat, either. Yes, charge flux normally causes magnetic flux, but only in the presence of ions. Since we are in a vacuum chamber here, there are no ions, so you would expect no magnetic fluxes. But there can still be heavy charge fluctuations, hidden from magnetic detectors by the lack of available ions. Therefore, specially generated magnetic excitations would not rule out charge excitations. This is especially critical since the level of motion being monitored is 10-21, which is in the quantum realm. Charge can interact directly with electrons at that level, with no need to monitor larger ions. It can even excite bound electrons, which are not really ions themselves and which would not show up as magnetism.
Although we are sold the opposite, this new claimed detection is even worse than the last one. In just 18 months, physics has gotten noticeably worse. Compared to this claim, the one in 2014 looks like a miracle of rigor. To try to hide that fact, the new announcements turn up the volume of the horntooting and mention as little of the facts of the experiment as possible. You wouldn’t have thought they could make the PR any louder or less subtle than in 2014, but somehow they have managed it. Instead of just a few famous people telling you it is important, they now have a barrage of video presentations, schooling you on every least facet of fake modern theory—including an Idiot’s Guide to Relativity. They want to lose you in this maze of manufactured details so that you won’t be able to ask sensible questions.
In fact, they have now gone past the sigma 7 bluff. Tim Radford at The Guardian tells us this latest discovery is “unequivocal”. Once this detection is admitted to fail, he may want to look up the meaning of that word. Writers for major newspapers used to be required to know what words meant before they used them. He may also wish to look up the meaning of the word “science”. No detection like this is ever “unequivocal”, since if it were, they wouldn’t need sigmas, would they? Royal Astronomer Martin Rees at The Telegraph is almost as illegible: Sadly it is not unknown for hyped-up scientific claims to be mistaken or exaggerated – claims of particles going faster than light, gravitational waves from the big bang, and so forth. I count myself a hard-to-convince sceptic. But what is being claimed will be the culmination of literally decades of effort by scientists and engineers with high credentials, and this time I expect to be fully convinced.
This hard-to-convince sceptic expects to be fully convinced this time. Shouldn’t he tell us why? He doesn’t, his next sentence being, “This detection is indeed a big deal”. His subtitle for the article is this: Einstein was right – and this announcement is the scientific highlight of the decade. Sounds like a hard-to-convince skeptic to me! His only reason for losing his skepticism would appear to be that “scientists with high credentials” are involved. But weren’t they involved in all the other hoaxes? Yes. Weren’t they involved in BICEP2? Yes.
Alan Guth had bigger cred than Kip Thorne, for instance, which is probably why BICEP2 was initially allowed to scoop LIGO, although LIGO had been at it for far longer. Was Martin Rees skeptical of the 2014 announcement that ended up crashing? If so, I don’t remember seeing his name in the list of vocal critics in March 2014. It is pretty easy for me to remember that entire list, because this is it:
- Miles Mathis
I don’t see Martin Rees’ name there next to mine, do you? His name wasn’t there because he is a mainstream physicist/astronomer, and they were all ordered to play along. LIGO was also ordered to play along, which they initially did. It wasn’t until my paper poked a big hole in BICEP2 that a few of these other people felt they could make a peep. Unfortunately, I don’t know that anyone is left to make a peep this time. We may assume some of the discontented in LIGO helped BICEP2 fall, but who will speak out to make LIGO fall? Those that were in BICEP2 can be dismissed as having bad blood, and anyway they have been permanently embarrassed. So we don’t expect to hear from them. Does anyone else have any reason to wish for this LIGO announcement to fail? In my experience, mainstream physics is not a realm of truth-lovers. It is also not a venue that attracts the courageous. But we will have to see. Not everything that is promoted is accepted, so maybe the wheels will continue to turn in ways unknown to me. I honestly would not have guessed that BICEP2 would be admitted to fail— even after I destroyed it—so possibly some hope remains. The midlevels of physics may retain some hidden power.
However that may turn out, this announcement is just more indication to me that the upper levels of physics have become a zombie-physics.
It is made up of thousands of people like this, who will lie right to your face without blinking an eye. Is there any possibility these people believe they have detected gravity waves? To believe that you would have to believe they don’t know the first thing about the scientific method, about the definition of physics, or about anything else. I give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they do know up from down. But that just makes things worse, because it means they aren’t just mistaken, it means they are lying. It means they are trying to pass something by you for money.
It means that physics has devolved to the point where all its name people are flying on fumes. They can’t do real physics, so the only thing left is this highly promoted pretend physics. Just look at that picture. It doesn’t look like they have any problem with that, does it? Zombies. Yes, the world has been taken over by these smiling people—physics-actors playing a part and collecting a paycheck. They may not eat your face off, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t dangerous. They have sucked over one billion dollars from the national treasury via the National Science Foundation.
The LIGO project has been the largest science project of NSF: By mid-September 2015 “the world’s largest gravitational-wave facility” completed a 5-year US$200-million overhaul at a total cost of $620 million. LIGO is the largest and most ambitious project ever funded by the NSF. So it is no surprise to find LIGO announcing a detection now. Despite just being a money pit for decades, this huge investment required some sort of actual finding at last. This is why you seem to get conflicting statements from the LIGO pages: we are told LIGO detected nothing for decades, despite a huge team and large investments; then, suddenly, after BICEP2 went down in flames, an overhaul was completed and the antennae immediately got a detection. In the new announcement, they tell us On Sept. 14 , the system had barely finished being calibrated and was in what is called an engineering run at 4 a.m. when a loud signal came through at the Livingston site.
That by itself is the sign of a fudge, since if we do some digging we find that the expensive overhaul only increased sensitivity by four times. Since the initial sensitivity was claimed to be four parts in a billion trillion, increasing that by four times should have been meaningless. That’s not only down to the size of the proton, that is below the size of the electron, which I have shown has a radius of about 10-17m. Do you really believe those mirrors hanging in those tunnels were still down to that level relative to one another, so that they could detect such tiny fluctuations? I don’t. Nothing in any real experiment ever run was ever that still, especially things hanging by threads. I suggest you compare what you are being told here with LIGO to what you are taught about the Cavendish experiment, the Millikan Oil Drop Experiment, and every other similar experiment, old and new.
