WilliamThompson <p>William Thompson trained in physics and astrogeophysics and spent 25 years in research and development in relation to the acquisition of government electronic systems. He then performed various systems engineering activities in support of government electronic communication, navigation, and surveillance systems for the next 20 years. span&gt; He is currently retired.;Education;William Thompson holds a bachelors degree with honors in physics from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. He holds a masters degree from the University of Colorado Boulder in astrogeophysics.;Professional Background;Early in his career he analyzed solar data bearing on the Kippenhahn-Schlter solar quiescent prominence model which supposes a magnetic mechanism for their support. He has conducted research on the transmission properties of the earth's ionosphere at L-band frequencies, 1,550 MHz, in anticipation of the deployment of satellite-based navigation systems with what became the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System [GPS]. He has performed independent research and development on the propagation characteristics of the earth's ionosphere and novel methods of deploying meteor burst communication (MBC) systems in the very high frequency (VHF) band at 40 MHz.;Avocationally he has been interested in the catastrophic nature of the solar system and published two papers in the 1970s.;Personal;Mr. Thompson is married to Diane Thompson and they have four adult children: Carrie Efinger, Kristin Franger, Heather Fetterly, and William I.

WilliamBlackmon <p>I obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Duke University in 1961 and entered the Navy. After four years in the Navy (two years with Underwater Demolition Team 21) I returned to school at NCSU and got a Ph. D. in the area of Plant Physiology. As a graduate student at NCSU, I had been trying to understand how enzymes lower the activation energies of reactions. Then what became obsessive questions emerged: What is energy and Why does matter possess relative movement;モSnakes In a Boxヤ;As a young kid my Uncles told me that my Grandfather had found two snakes eating each other. Each had the otherメs tail in its mouth. He placed them in a secure box and when he opened the box the next day, it was empty. The snakes had eaten each other! Try as hard as I could, I could not visualize how it could have happened. But it had to be true, my trusted Uncles had told me.;I entered college with the same faith in my professors and encountered concepts such as the dual nature of light that I could not reconcile. Later, an acquaintance asked: モWhy do you think you are wrong and are just unable to grasp such foundational conceptsヤ From that point my quest has become to understand: What is the structure of the Universe that makes our laws and theories useful This approach is different from trying to disprove or support a law or theory.;Laws and theories are not logical necessities but empirical associations derived from observations in the distributions of matter. Thus, the ultimate unit of matter should represent the ultimate reference point. If one had a grasp of the ultimate components of a system, it should be possible, in theory, to envision a structure for the system that accounts for the phenomena as detected at the observational level. This type of rational has been an influence in manメs quest to understand the workings of nature for a long time. However, since the musings of Democritus, storehouses of scientific observations have been accumulated that provide a background of information available for interpretation and reinterpretation. Sometimes a better understanding of a previously conducted experiment is as valuable as a new experiment. (See the Ultimate Components presented under William Blackmon @ http://www.Researchgate.net.);Listed below are some モSnakes in a Boxヤ for which Pivotal Concepts (See http://www.pivotalconceptsinscience.com) offers explanations.;1. Matter and energy are inter-convertible, i.e. E 0 = m 0 c 2.;2. The speed of light c is independent of the relative motion of the source and observer.;3. Light is both a wave and a particle ヨ the dual nature of light.;4. A light signal traveling in a vacuum at c undergoes a reduction in speed when it enters a transparent medium, but resumes the speed c upon exit back into the vacuum.;5. Regardless of the intensity of a source, the velocity of energy released never exceeds c, and the radiation component from a source only occurs at c.;6. In the area of optics, signal transmission may be represented by rays, which may change directions, be divided, and recombined.;And the snakes in the box --- They were virtual quantum snakes of course!</p> 0 2013-09-14 More...

<p>I was born and grew up in kibbutz Bet-Nir, Israel. After completing national service I moved to Leeds, England. There I went to the University of Leeds to study biology and ended up with a PhD in plant sciences. While content with the central themes of biology, cell, evolution and DNA, I became frustrated by physical theories of multiple forces, particles and dimensions. Unable to bridge the gap between biology and physics I developed a new theory of physics. The theory links basic physical properties of light, matter and gravity using only two elementary particles, positive and negative particles, and one electric force in three dimensional volume. My theory predicts weight should decrease at increasing temperature (in vacuum) but I could not find an experimentalist to do the experiment. I join NPA with hope and expectation to conclude the results this crucial experiment.</p> 0 2015-01-16 More...

YuriKeilman <p>I graduated in theoretical physics in Russia in 1966. Worked in theoretical physics at home only. In 1982 I obtained nonsingular particle in Classical Electrodynamics (CED). This solution will replace the famous singular solution (1/r). Later I obtained solutions that correspond to light particles. I think that besides E-M transverse waves that carry energy and momentum there exist the longituginal waves in CED that do not carry any energy or momentum but influence particles through boundary conditions.;Articles (General Science Journal);Added Apr. 7, 2009: The Real Meaning of Special Relativity;Added Oct. 18, 2008: Objective Formulation of Special Relativity;Added Oct. 1, 2007: Once More on the Meaning of Special Relativity Theory;Added Sep. 24, 2007: In-Depth Analysis of Classical Electrodynamics (CED);Added Dec. 28, 2006: The Nicola Tesla Connection;Added Oct. 10, 2006: On the Physical Meaning of the Energy-Momentum Tensor;Added Sep. 25, 2006: We Live in a World where Non-Conservation of Linear Momentum is a Common Phenomenon;Added Sep. 12, 2006: Difficult Statements;Added Sep. 2, 2006: Dummy Waves Are Responsible for Gravity;Added Aug. 24, 2006: Dummy Waves;Added Aug. 22, 2006: My Mistake: The Notion That There is No Electric Field Inside a Capacitor is Wrong;Added Jun. 11, 2006: Unfortunate Relativity;Updated Jan. 5, 2005: The Failure of Maxwell's Equations Inside a Capacitor [HTML] - Version;Added Dec. 6, 2005: Classical Interpretation of de Broglie's Waves;Added Dec. 6, 2005: The Lorentz Problem of 1890 Solved by Einstein in 1905;Updated Feb. 2, 2005: The Basic Principles of Classical Electrodynamics (HTML) - PDF Version;Updated Feb. 2, 2005: Classical Approach to the Theory of Elementary Particles [HTML] - PDF Version;Added Sep. 23, 2004: The Concept of "Mass" in Extended Classical ElectroDynamics (ECED);Added Sep. 16, 2004: Mathematics that Every Physicist Should Know;Added Sep. 13, 2004: Symmetry in Classical Physics;Updated Sep. 13, 2004: Classical Electrodynamics;Updated Sep. 13, 2004: Experiment to Test the Local Equivalence Principle;Added May 24, 2004: Special Relativity is a Classical Theory;Added Dec. 4, 2002: Relativity is a Two-Faced Janus;Added Jul, 14, 2002: Derivation of Special Relativity from Maxwell's Equations</p> 9 2011-12-16 More...
