ArthurLarson <p>I Grew up on a farm, joined the US NAVY right after high school, 1959 to 1962. Spent my naval years on a Destroyer Escort, USS Keppler DDE 765. Almost sunk one stormy night in the Atlantic when our ship was broadsided by the USS Johnston who mistook us for a submarine. I was on sonar watch and we, too, thought the Johnston was a submarine. Both ships radars were out due to the storm. A few seconds earlier and the Johnston would have hit us and cut us in two as we were turning at my request to get the target out of the stern baffles. As it was, she lost her bow and skidded down our starboard side and cleaned off all the equipment and metalwork from the quarterdeck, down aft to the stern. The Johnston had to go immediately to port and we followed a couple of days later when the pumps couldn't keep up with the water coming in.;After the navy I went to school, then hired with Univac as an overseas computer engineer in 1996 in Germany and then taught for two years in Egan, Minnesota, and for NATO in Rome, Italy. Eventually became overseas engineering manager for all the third world countries, including South East Asia, Austrialia, Commi Con, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa, Japan, China, and the USSR. We lived in South Africa, Korea, Hong Kong and London.;Married my British solemate in 1968, no children. Lots of puppies and cats. I saw her one day walking across a computer room in Weisbaden, Germany. She was a secretary for the US Airforce. The attraction for me was instantaneous.;We lived and worked all over the world for twenty years then retired in 1984 and bought a small cow/calf operation in southwest Minnesota. Started writing on gravity and relativity in 1990. One night in May, 1991, I had to write a paragraph on Newtonian gravity as a mutual attraction between any two particles. Before the night was finished, I had come to a new hypothesis of gravity where gravity between any two bodies was a self-movement force due to the exchange of gravitons. There were several times that night where I'd start a sentence and not know how I was going to finish it, but it would come, seemingly on it's own. It was like another intelligence was guiding my hand. I even tried it a couple of times to start a sentence to see what would happen. It worked.;When I finished with my new hypothesis of gravity, I found that Newtons law would have to be modified from F = m 1 m 2 /d 2, to F=2(m 1 m 2)/d 2. Einstein's general relativity where gravity was due to mass making geodisics (paths in space), was wrong. This took me a few more months to figure out. I developed a simple test, a modified Cavendish Gravitational Constant experiment, can be done to prove the new hypothesis correct or false. I found the link between inertia and gravity and the link between light and gravity. I also found that if my hypoethesis was correct, the new self-movement gravity could be artifically redirected to be used as a faster-than-light spacecraft propulsion system without reaction mass. It would also give us a supreamly fast interception craft to re-direct any asteroid that is threatening earth. Someday we will need such a capability. So far we've just been lucky.;This leads to other conclusions that are anathema to science.;I have presented this hypothesis to various conferences and sent papers to many science and physics societies and individual scientists. I'd always been careful not to say that Einstein was wrong, as that leads to rejection and censorship. In 2003 I sent a paper in for the STAIF-04 conference, and for the first time I actually said out loud, in print, that Einsein's General Relativity was wrong and it could be proven. A few days before the end of submissions, I received a letter from Doctor Mohammad EL Genk, the Director of the NM Space and Nuclear Studies dept, telling me that my paper was being pulled and I would not be allowed to speak.;I was told by the NASA Chair that the reason was because my new theory of gravity did not reduce down to General Relativity. Of course not, and I quite happily admitted it, in fact I insisted on it. But it shows that even in today's so-called open science, censorship still exists, no different from Galileo's time.;I have authored seven books: three novels: The Millennium Coup, Project Deep Probe, and Blowback. The Millennium Coup is published and available on Amazon. I've written three science books, Twisting Gravity, The Relativity Myth, and Star Portal. And I've written one science fiction and a screen play.;My life at the moment revolves around getting my books published. The Millennium Coup is being sold out of my car trunk and in three months I have sold 200 copies. I have a dispute with the man who helped me with my printer setup and cover art and he, unbeknownst to me, unethically copyrighted my cover art. I am now in the process of stripping him out of all my stuff. It is involved and takes a while.;My wife and I are enjoying the Minnesota climate, especially this past winter We've had almost no snow and are preparing ourselves to being on the Minnesota Rivera.;In 2007 I had two heart attacks and a quad bypass. After being infected by a massive MRSA infection, I had to be opened up again, and the doctors gave me a fifty-fifty chance of survival. Recently I had a severe bronchitis infection and that developed into a Viral Encephalitis infection which I again survived. I am in good health at the moment, but I am concentrating on getting my books printed.</p> 1 2012-03-17 More...

AthanassiosNassikas <p>&gt;1947. Born in Smixi of Grevena in Greece;1970. Mechanical and Electrical Engineering degree from the Technical University of Athens (???).;1970-1973. Graduate studies at the Business University of Athens.;1973-1977. Supervisor in the Developmental Program of Ground Waters of Thessaly.;1977-1985. Co-founded Hydrowatt Ltd with object relevant with the pump houses of ground waters based on a patent he co-invented.;1985-1989. Designed a doctorate's program relative to the 2nd Thermodynamic Law and received a PhD at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Collaborated with: Prof. Dr. K. Akritidis (Ph.D. Thesis Supervisor, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki-Greece), Prof. Dr. R. Decuypere (R.M.A. - Belgium), Prof. Dr. A. S. Mujumdar (MacGill Univ. Montreal-Canada), for drying application. Articles at "Drying Technology" and "Drying" Ed. A. S. Mujumdar, 89,91,93. USA patent 1992.;1990-1995. Part-time Scientific contributor / Professor at the Technological Education Institute of Larissa.;1995. Professorship at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technological Education Institute of Larissa. His subject-matter is Renewable Forms of Energy (All Greek Technological Education Institutes and Universities, by Greek and European law, belong to higher education);1990-1995. Wrote the book "The Claim for Minimum Contradictions" published by Trohalia in Greek (220 pages, ISBN: 960-7022-64-5). This claim was the basis for all his later works. Starting point for writing the book and further works were basic philosophical matters related with the deterministic or in-deterministic perception, the ongoing interest around the Gdel theorem, the basic issue of physics that is the unification of general relativity with quantum mechanics and the growing indication of Zero Point Energy.;1995-present. Wrote several case studies regarding the unified field and the Physics of minimum contradictions, as well as technological applications of this, of which he has presented in various conferences and published in international journals.;More specifically;1995-2000. Wrote papers related to the unification of relativity theory with QM based on the unification of the physical meanings deriving either from relativity theory or QM. On these basis mater is space time itself which is stochastic and distributed according to the QM density probability function through a Hypothetical Measuring Field (HMF). Real space time corresponds to mass space while imaginary space time corresponds to change space the two of them being interconnected through photons. Space time operators and equations, mass and charge space time geometry and mater field intensity are defined.;The epistemological bases of these was Gdel's work which however appeared to be inadequate treating contradictory systems.;After a warm introduction by Prof. A. Smirnov and Prof. G. Klyushin he collaborated with late Prof. P. F. Parshin and co authored an article related to the possibility of a unique axiom in physics which was a basic step for author's final work.;2000-2004. Wrote various versions of his theorem which is the core of his work under the patient and careful editing by Dr. C. K. Whitney, who made considerable corrections including changes in terminology.;2004-2008. Presented at NPA and PIRT conferences papers related to a minimum contradictions physics which is a space time QM deriving from the Claim for Minimum Contradictions. The Consequences of these papers are the same with the ones of his earlier works but are based on the Claim for Minimum Contradictions which derives from the theorem mentioned in his 2000-2004 works and which is adequate treating contradictory systems.;He tried to show the interaction between the (g) with the (em) field and he made an asymmetric capacitor with zero potential casing which displayed a weight loss but without being always reproducible.;2008-present. Under suggestion by Dr Duffy he wrote a book including the whole of his work but in a way that it would not include any gaps. This book is entitledMinimum Contradictions Everything and was reviewed by Dr. M. C. Duffy, edited by Dr C. K. Whitney and Published by Hadronic Press. Under suggestion by Dr. C. K. Whitney he wrote an article related to neutron synthesis as it has been proposed by Prof. R. M. Santilli according to Hadronic Mechanics. This article after clarifying revisions by Dr. Whitney had been written on the basis ofMinimum Contradictions Everything. These works constitute author's main his life work and excludingMinimum Contradictions Everything can be found at http://users.teilar.gr/~a.a.nass.</p> 6 2011-12-16 More...

BentNielsen <p>I spent twelve years in philosophy and psychology studies (1966-73 and 1980-85), then turned towards Artificial Intelligence, especially interested in neural net modelling. (University of Copenhagen);Health problems, economic needs and prospects, and the fact, that at that time future employment in positions of my interest at university levels were blocked out for an indefinite time-period in Denmark, led me to be a drop out in favor of very well paid employee engagements and consultant business. This was mostly within private educational positions, teaching system analysis and programming, plus instructing in the use of a diversity of application programs on muliple platforms. AI is still my main interest, and I consider myself one of the best! However - I thought that my findings of some severe irregularities in the logic of the Michelson Morley type experiments could be the basis for a "scientific best-seller" and thus boost my economy in order to get an applied AI concept "flying".;Wrong! But this experience has made me investigate the fundamentals of physics in detail - And after six years doing this (full time!) I am not impressed. Therefore I have now ended the process of writing a 301 page book in danish covering what I consider to be multiple flaws in (astro)physics. Also I have subsequently pulished it on a new, selfmade publishing company - As no existing company dared take it uder their wings. (Title: Klogere end Einstein En ny model for Universet - Which translates into: Brighter than Einstein A New Model for the Universe.) For now I am fully occupied with overcoming the next obstacle: To get it noticed by the establishment and to get it sold! (5000 hardback ex!) To encompass this portrait, you might like to know that I have for a long time been called "The Philosopher" or "DaVinci Light" by my friends. Finally you should know that I understand geometry and logic v e r y well, but that mathematics is just about a complete mystery to me!;Figure out how that corrolates with my above mentioned interests and proved abilities! I can't!;Note: My (publishing company) website antagonica.dk is now redesigned (as of april 2011). It still has some contents in english (abut the Michelson &amp; Morley oversights in their assumptions vis a vis their implementation of the experiment) but it is mainly directed towards a a local Danish public as it has been tailored to serve the purpose of selling the book. Still not very successfull.;Almost 3/4 of a year with a succesion of several different - not serious but yet impeeding - health issues has kept my "Einstein disputing" activities on a very modest level. However: The last three weeks (June-July 2011) has been spent on the construction of a revised and (hopefully) improved version of the 2008 experiment (See eventually the NPA Database of Experiments) -- that showed that it was a quite possible conclution to state, that light is waves that move in an intergalactic / interstellar / inter-planetary medium.</p> 1 2011-12-16 More...
