One Thing Does Lead to Another

One Physics misconception that I still see bandied about, frequently, is that quantum physics is somehow fundamentally different than the classical physics we observe at larger scales.  Inevitably, Schrodinger’s cat is mentioned in there somehow, as a wearisome “example” of just how strange quantum …

More Evidence that the Expansion of the Universe is Accelerating, as Described in “The Enlightening”

In my post from Jan 30, 2019 (“Dark Energy is Getting Stronger”), I referenced new data out of the University of Florence and Durham University in England, via NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton spacecraft, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, …

When Light Collides With Light

I love this experimental discovery and its implications for electrodynamics. All fundamental particles are cousins of the quantum units of electromagnetic energy (photons), but none more so than the ubiquitous electron. Very cool work by Professor Anne Sickles of my alma mater, The University …

The Greatest and Grandest Illusion (Part I)- A Relativistic Deception

Albert Einstein H.A. Lorentz In my book The Enlightening, I make the following observation:  Both Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz conceived of Lorentz’ Relativistic Velocity Transformation equations as describing the entire extent of the universe.  This is clearly supported by Einstein’s relativity theories, including …

My thoughts on Dark Matter

Dark matter (extra-dimensional gravitation), as described in my book, The Enlightening, would certainly cool down the first primordial stars, as described in this new research. There’s no need to invoke dark matter “particles” when these early stars would exist within a matrix of extra-dimensional …
