  • 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: […]

    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 […]

  • The Most Fundamental Paradox
    by John-Erik Persson on July 2, 2019 at 11:39 am

    The Most Fundamental Paradox John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 14 174 Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract The wave or particle confusion is not a kind of complementarity – as Niels Bohr said. However, the paradox can be solved by introducing a particle-based ether and a light model based on waves only. By strict following the wave model […]

  • Fundamental Errors behind Paradoxes in Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on June 11, 2019 at 9:24 am

    Fundamental Errors behind the Paradoxes in Physics John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract We will see how denial of the ether concept, and confusions regarding the behavior of light, are the case of the many paradoxes in modern physics. Without the ether, the law of energy conservation is misleading. The wave or particle […]

  • Fundamental Error behind Time Dilation
    by John-Erik Persson on May 31, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    John-Erik Persson The ether wind can be blowing inside the wave fronts of light. This means that light does not always move transverse to wave fronts. The ether wind, v, caused by planetary rotation is about 10-6 times c. Therefore, the difference between total motion, according to the vector sum, c+v, and the normal […]

  • Continuous Radiation from Bound Electrons
    by John-Erik Persson on May 26, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    The cyclic motion of a bound electron (A) produces a cyclic disturbance in the surrounding ether. This disturbance (a potential force) moves with the speed c. If, and only if, this potential force hits another electron (B), then at that moment a real force on B is produced. This force cannot earlier be realized since […]

  • The Structure of Light
    by John-Erik Persson on May 22, 2019 at 8:53 am

    The Structure of Light John-Erik Persson Abstract This article describes the structure and behavior of light, without using the particle model. The most important problem The question regarding the structure of light is the most important problem in physics. The introduction of the wave theory seems to be unfinished, and all particle-based thinking is […]

  • Paradoxes and Failures in Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on April 8, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    pdf Paradoxes and Failures in Physics John-Erik Persson Budkavlevägen 5, 14 174 Segeltorp, Sweden A world of paradoxes and questions Today theoretical physics is in a bad state. Physics is full of unanswered questions like: Why the wave or particle paradox? Why the twin paradox? Why quantum jumping? What are quanta of light? Why […]

  • Earth expansion and palaeogravity in 2018
    by Stephen W. Hurrell on January 13, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    Well, it’s the start of another new year, so it’s time to reflect on the events of 2018. Once again, it’s been another busy year for Earth expansion and palaeogravity. Prof. S. Warren Carey’s 1982 video, A Question of Expansion, created a lot of interest when it was published on YouTube the previous year, and […]

  • Twin Paradox
    by John-Erik Persson on January 9, 2019 at 5:44 pm

    Member Forgotten Approximation–>Twin Paradox If light is moving with velocity c in a specific frame, and we search the velocity in another frame, moving with the velocity u in relation to the first frame, we get c–u in the new frame. We can use simple vector addition and state that light always moves […]

  • The Michelson Tragedy
    by John-Erik Persson on November 14, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    The Michelson Tragedy (PDF including diagram) The Michelson Tragedy Abstract The Michelson-Morley tests, that were done in 1881 and 1887, are still questioned. So, we have reasons, even today, to discuss what does these experiments mean. The dispute between Michelson and Potier is discussed in this article. Michelson’s tests Michelson had a remarkable skill […]

  • Michelson-Morley Explained
    by John-Erik Persson on October 18, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    MMichelsonp The link contains PDF with diagram Michelson-Morley explained Abstract Short and popularized version of the famous experiments called MMX. We can see that in reality it is Michelson’s – not Potier’s version that is the correct one. The equipment A light source produced wave fronts that was split up by a beam splitter […]

  • A Dispute In Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on October 17, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    A Scientific Dispute (The link contains PDF doc with diagrams) Abstract This short article is about the debate between 1882 and 1887 regarding Michelson’s and Potier’s opinions about light behavior, in the experiments that Michelson did together with Morley. The unhappy result of this debate had a devastating effect for the development of physics. […]

  • Potier was wrong
    by John-Erik Persson on August 17, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    This article explains how time dilation has been used to cover up for a mistake, that was introduced by Potier, when Einstein was a child. Potier did not observe that mirrors are transparent to the ether wind, and therefore the mirrors are controlling c only – and not c+v. Potier’s mistake Potier reduced Michelson’s prediction […]

  • Non reality of time and new relativity theory.
    by Didier Viel on August 15, 2018 at 7:45 am

    Throughout the ages, time was an essential question for physicists and even more at present. Nowadays, physicists are trying to unify Quantum Mechanics and Einstein General Relativity theory, to get an overall theory, which would represent completely the universe, from infinitely small dimensions to infinitely large, and time is a major element for this unification.
