Why not fit a wave equation to the group behaviour of particles (molecules in air) and talk sound waves? Far easier than dealing with the fact that the sound wave has an outward pressure phase followed by an equal under-pressure phase, giving an outward force and equal-and-opposite inward reaction which allows music to propagate. Nobody hears any music, so why should they worry about the physics? Certainly they can't hear any explosions where the outward force has an equal and opposite reaction, too, which in the case of the big bang tells us gravity.
The mathematical and physical proof of gravity solving the strength correctly and resolving all the issues of cosmology at http://nigelcook0.tripod.com/ can be ignored for being mathematical and scientific, by the media. The statement in bold above can be ignored for being too clear.
When I started getting replies from journalists, like editor of the New Scientist, Jeremy Webb, I thought I was beginning to get somewhere. But it turned out these guys all wore jackbooks or at least faced the wall when the jackboots were in town, refusing to help science in a big way.
In the last post I quoted Feynman's book Character of Physical Law. Looking at the preface just now, which is by Professor Paul Davies (who I ridiculed over relativity in a previous post on this blog), I find he admits the facts very nicely:
'Each revolution comes with ... men and women whose skill and imagination force the scientific community to break out of old habits of thought and embrace new and unfamiliar concepts.'
Notice that Newton ran away from doing this until Hook claimed to have discovered the inverse-square law, then Newton wrote Prncipia to get the credit. Similarly, Einstein didn't bother going to Africa to photograph a solar eclipse to verify his general theory, that was done by Eddington to avoid imprisonment for refusing to get a hole in his head in WWI. So historically, Davies is talking horseshit. But for the future, he is probably right.
All my work on gravitation and electromagnetism http://nigelcook0.tripod.com/ is nothing compared to the bigger problem of ousting string theory. It is not the ideas or the maths which matter, only the fight to destroy horseshit propaganda. In April this year I arranged with Melanie Hewitt at News International to publish a page advert in The Times for £4,000. She told me on the phone that it would need to be run past the editor, since it was not very boring.
The editor censored it. Thus, I might as well be living in Germany in 1935. I cannot pay a newspaper to print the facts. If I made the facts so obscure and boring, then they would print it but it would not be read. In effect, we are living in Germany circa 1935. A mere individual like me has no say whatsoever except in places like this which and my home page, which the Nazis have persuaded Google to censor from the search results. Why deny Iraq? Why deny the banning of Christmas in Britain by 'politically correct' local authorities which copy Blare's dictatorship? Why deny that Hitler was elected in 1933? We might as well get used to it...
