Here is a live feed of articles from the John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society (formally the NPA). It continues to be the “premier” organization of critical thinkers in the world with scientists from all over the world.

  • Mistakes?
    by John-Erik Persson on August 17, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Mistakes – or? Science became fiction Physics became fiction between 1882 and 1887, since the real motion of light (a vector sum; beam direction) was assumed to be controlled by collimator, distant mirror and telescope in MMX and in the detection of stellar aberration. However, the ether wind is irrelevant in relation to reflectors and […]

  • Gravity 2
    by John-Erik Persson on July 13, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    Gravity – a Neutrino Effect? John-Erik Persson About 300 years ago an ether model, that could explain gravity, was presented by Fatio. He assumed very fast and very small particles to propagate in all directions. These particles could penetrate large bodies like Earth. However, this penetration had the effect that the intensity in the flow […]

  • MEMO to CNPS conference 2020 about waves
    by John-Erik Persson on May 20, 2020 at 4:20 pm The wave models – beam and ray The vector sum, c+v, defines the motion of a beam, and can only be roughly estimated as the direction of maximal amplitude, and is therefore not very important. The motion of a ray as c(1+vL/c), excluding the ether wind inside the wave front, and thereby describing a […]

  • The MMX question
    by John-Erik Persson on May 10, 2020 at 10:50 am

    The wave front and the mirror Due to the irrelevance of the ether wind in relation to mirrors wave fronts in MMX are conserved in equipment frame, and mirrors are conserving wave fronts, as stated in the MEMO to the NPA conference in 2009. This has been defined in different ways, but, since the important […]

  • The Michelson-Morley question -- and the ether
    by John-Erik Persson on May 1, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    The Michelson-Morley Question  – and the Ether John-Erik Persson Abstract This article is analyzing the famous experiments, (MMX), that Michelson did together with Morley. These tests have produced confusing and paradoxical results, and have been debated for about 140 years. Questions regarding quantum jumping, quantization, gravity and entanglement are also discussed. Background The […]

  • About Michelson-Morley
    by John-Erik Persson on April 13, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    COMMENTS ON THE MICHELSON-MORLEY PARADOX SOLVED By Justin Jacobs Nick Percival had asked me to comment on this article, and I think the blog is suitable for this purpose. I think that the paper contains many good arguments against the special theory of relativity. It is demonstrated that Einstein used mathematics as a magician and […]

  • How Science Became Fiction
    by John-Erik Persson on April 1, 2020 at 7:05 pm

    John-Erik Persson Background Modern physics states that twins can become of different ages, if they have moved with very different speeds. The reason is that time is said to progress with different speeds for individuals in different states of motion. This is called time dilation. These ideas are in conflict with common sense, and […]

  • Individual aging -- science or fiction?
    by John-Erik Persson on March 21, 2020 at 7:44 pm The idea of individual aging has been productive in science fiction – and caused a dead end in physics. This idea is an effect of time dilation and caused by Potier in 1882. He changed Michelson’s prediction based on constant wave vector, c, to constant wave magnitude, c, in the equipment frame in Michelson […]

  • The Third Option
    by John-Erik Persson on March 1, 2020 at 1:06 pm Binary logic, excluding the middle, has produced binary computers, but also contributed to binary thinking in the western world, for instance in politics. An important example is the long, long debate regarding the ether. The question: is there a reference frame for the propagation of light? This question seems never to generate a […]

  • Is the Ether Wind Decidable?
    by John-Erik Persson on February 7, 2020 at 7:50 pm Abstract An illusion of undecidability of an ether wind was the basis for establishing the theory of special relativity (SRT). The reason to that mistake was a wrong interpretation of light behavior in both arms in the Michelson and Morley’s tests (MMX), and also in the interpretation of stellar aberration. A deviation from the […]

  • Critical Thinkers
    by John-Erik Persson on January 12, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Critical Thinkers? Do they exist? I have searched for them with mails and blog posts, but failed to see them. Critical thinkers should like to discuss with opponents, but I have found that members and directors in CNPS finish conversation when they see a great discrepancy in opinions, instead of regarding this as a reason […]

  • The Tragical History of Theoretical Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on December 30, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    The Tragic History of Theoretical Physics PDF below John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 141 74 Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract This article contains no mathematical concepts, since this article is primarily intended for non-scientists. The reason is that mainstream physicists are not likely to read dissident papers because they are deeply indoctrinated by the relativity dogma. […]

  • Two important errors in MMX
    by John-Erik Persson on December 16, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    In the longitudinal arm: The assumption that transverse forces propagate as c+/-v should be followed by the same assumption regarding longitudinal forces. Therefore, the assumed effect is compensated and not observable. In the transverse arm: The assumption that the vector sum c+v is reflected by the distant mirror is wrong, since the mirror is transparent […]

  • A New Memorandum
    by John-Erik Persson on December 1, 2019 at 2:58 pm

    PDF A New Memorandum John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 141 74 Segeltorp, Sweden 10 years ago, I wrote to NPA an article about Michelson-Morley’s tests (MMX) called Conserved Wave Front: A Memorandum. No reactions from NPA or from CNPS means that I see a reason to repeat it. Conserved wave front in MMX In […]

  • Michelson-Morley, again
    by John-Erik Persson on November 14, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    I have made a new attempt to explain the error in using Michelson-Morley’s tests to support the theory of relativity. See the file below: […]

  • Comments regarding 3 papers by Ron Ward
    by John-Erik Persson on November 5, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    Comments regarding three papers by Ronald C Ward John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 14 174 Segeltorp, Sweden First paper: Michelson-Morley Experiment Analysis Error Changes Time Dilation and Length Contraction Available at In the article Fig 1 describes exactly what this author has explained to NPA and CNPS for many years. This interpretation of MMX […]

  • PDF-version of 'All You Need...'

    The previous post lost the diagram and also the underscores. So, i give here a version in PDF. PDF […]

  • All you need is wave, II
    by John-Erik Persson on October 21, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    All You Need Is Wave, II John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract This article describes physics without a lot of modern inventions like: quanta of light, wave-to-particle complementarity, dilation of time, bending of space and quantum jumping. Included is instead some traditional concepts like: a strict wave model for light, contraction of matter […]

  • How Time Was Corrupted
    by John-Erik Persson on August 6, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    How the Time Concept Was Corrupted John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, Segeltorp, Sweden Wave or particle? Our knowledge regarding the structure of light is not clear, and the transition from particle model to wave model appears not to be really finished. All particle-based ideas are not swept out, and this fact causes the wave or […]

  • The Endless Debate about the Michelson and Morley's tests
    by John-Erik Persson on July 18, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    PDF John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 14 174 Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract We will see that the results from Michelson and Morley’s tests can be explained by the Galilean transform, without the use of time dilation. This demands an ether. If this ether has a radial motion in relation to Earth we can explain: gravity, gravity […]
