PREAMBLE
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.

Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909)

WHAT IS THE HIDDEN AGENDA BEHIND THE BREAKTHROUGH PRIZE?

May 15, 2016

Folks, according to the official Breakthrough Prize web site, this is what is said about the gala award ceremony:

Laureates receive $3 million each in prize money. They attend a televised award ceremony designed to celebrate their achievements and inspire the next generation of scientists.

At the ceremony the Silicon Valley tycoons behind the Prize rent famous Hollywood stars for the evening to help celebrate the laureates and their achievements, and to inspire the next generation of scientists.

In the following graphic posted earlier I had described the public face of that ceremony:

And now we have a Breakthrough honoree’s report, from laureate and the founder of String Theory, John Schwarz:

At the 2014 award ceremony, Schwarz says, he and his wife, Patricia, were “both struck by the fact that the Hollywood types showed no interest in mingling with scientists.” And the media coverage also seemed to focus on the movie stars rather than the award winners.

So I ask the physics establishment: Where are you going with this?

LORD HAVE MERCY!

TAKE THAT WOW FACTOR OUT OF LIGO

May 10, 2016

Anyone who wants to see the LIGO discovery for what it truly is (a gigantic scam), must first get past the “wow factor” that has dazzled the world. It is a colorful smoke screen that keeps you from seeing the scientific truth which is straightforward.

Why is it that so many different critics assail LIGO from so many different angles? It is because this is a bogus discovery overall in the first place.

Honors and accolades for the Ligonauts are today coming out the wazoo – fast and furious. These are backed by dozens of big-name physicists. This is a stark sign of how low our scientific civilization fallen.

Lord have mercy!

INDIA: Ligo a-go-go

May 8, 2016

Here is a news report from the Press Trust of India this morning that the final site selection for LIGO-India is near. This information comes from an Indian government source.

This report has been carried in a couple of business news outlets, showing the significance of this decision far outside of the scientific sphere. Just common sense tells us that as soon as the final site is announced, there will be great real estate speculation.

This wll be an eight km LIGO.

The other matter that the Indian media has been abuzz with is that 37 Indian LIGO scientists will receive $2000 each of the Yuri Milner Breakthrough Prize for LIGO. In fact the Indian Prime Minister has personally twitted congratulations to these scientists for this recognition of their “exceptional scientic achievement.”

It is clear that this Prize has had the effect of a reassuring scientific imprimatur, in case there were any second thoughts. It is now All Systems Go.

In the sequence of the gigantic scams

Penzias/Wilson-COBE-WMAP-BICEP2-LIGO,

this is the first time that another nation and its citizens at large are to be impacted by the rampant culture of organized scam science in America. It is a culture of creating great mythical heroes out of a few clever people at the expense of the nation’s greatness. Now this culture is either being exported or has become infectious.

But the Indian scientists are moving this forward with great deliberation, with their eyes wide open. So the Indian society has only their own to hold responsible. If you are self-destructive even in the face of beneficial guidance, no one can help you.

THE LIGO FRAUD FOR THINKY FOLKS

May 5, 2016

While Thorne and the Ligonauts are reveling on the good ship Ligosy on high seas, let us schmooze a little.

In various prior posts I explained what LIGO actually observed (geomagnetic disturbance.) However, if you are interested only in the proof that LIGO never detected any gravitational waves, you need not go into all that. This proof comes entirely from the LIGO discovery diagram itself.

I. THE DISCOVERY ASSUMPTIONS

The inference of detection of gravitational wave and the discovery of Blackhole merger rest 100% on these unproven claims about the instrument:

(a). The instrument functions at such level of precision that it can quantify “movement” down to one-thousandth the diameter of a proton.

(b). The gravitational waveform incident on LIGO appears as an interferometer-generated waveform at its output, where the two waveforms are linked by the transfer function of an ideal instrument. Only then can a prediction-verification connection be established between the two waveforms (i.e. there’s present no instrumental distortion.)

(c). The two LIGO instruments are functionally identical.

The precision of (a) and the idealness of (b) are interlinked. If you say instrument has any distortion, then that precision is degraded.

II. LIGO INSTRUMENTAL DISTORTION

Instrumental distortion of an input signal passing through the instrument can be understood in simplified terms as follows.

Let g(t) be the strain (fractional length change) created at LIGO by the incident gravitational waveform, taken in its entirety (starting from zero baseline and coming back to zero baseline.)

Let I(f) be the instrument transfer function (f = frequency).

The signal g(t) can be decomposed into its constituent frequencies:

g(f) = ∫g(t) exp (-2i π ft) dt

At the output of the instrument, g(f) is modified to

h(f) = g(f)xI(f)

Now the output signal is

h(t) = ∫g(f) exp (2i π ft) df

The LIGO output strain h(t) is a computer-generated trace obtained from the LIGO inteferometer.

So this is how g(t) is transformed to h(t).

The LIGO discovery assumes without proof that I(f) = 1.

In addition to I(f), there can be external sources of noise N(f) that will need to be expressed as a strain and added to g(f).

III. LIGO OBSERVATION AND THE CORRECT CONCLUSIONS

ligo_data

(1) Whereas the predicted LIGO incident signal (bottom panels) is a smooth undulation, the observed output signal (top panel) is jagged and sharp. There is no physical process in Blackhole merger that can imprint such features in the gravitational waveform. These features are added by instrumental effect I(f). The Ligonauts have averred strongly that there is no external noise of any kind in the main body of the signal.

Thus no prediction-verification link can be made between the input signal and the output signal before quantifying that instrument effect I(f).

Once this effect is quantified and removed from h(t), one can have a waveform g(t) that is to be compared with the predicted waveform (bottom panels).

With known instruments – such as a radio telescope – this is not a problem. The observed signal will generally be found to be a corrupted version of the incident signal. However, LIGO is an entirely unknown territory and one can make no such statements.

Furthermore, I(f) is not quantifiable because the conditions of a gravitational wave cannot be reproduced in a controlled experiment.

The ringing and the chirp in h(t) – the telltale identifying signatures of the Blackhole merger – could have come from I(f), for all we know. We have absolutely no knowledge what g(t) was actually observed . The bottom panels in the above figure are not g(t). The world has been deceived into thinking it is. This is the central LIGO deception.

(2) The output signals h(t) at two stations (WA and LA) are different from each other, counterindicating a gravitational waveform. (There is no way in which the gravitational waveform g (t) can change between two stations.)

(3) Any explaining away of these conundrums to salvage the discovery would require invoking ad hoc instrumental faults. But any such faults would undermine both the discovery assumptions (a) and (b), and hence the discovery itself.

There is no way out. This is what happens when you operate with an uncharacterized and uncharacterizable instrument.

But of course these conundrums are not real. They arise falsely because the inference of detection of gravitational wave is false to begin with.

So what is one to do with LIGO?

If the LIGO tubes were covered with bright-colored fabric, they might serve as a piece of Christo-style art.

BREAKTHROUGH TODAY, NOBEL TOMORROW

May 3, 2016

Folks, the LIGO discovery has just been awarded the Breakthrough Prize.

What is important to note here is that the announcement gives the names of all the people on the award committee that stands behind this prize. Note that there are four Nobel Laureates on the committee. Towering above them all is Edward Witten. He issued the following statement:

“This amazing achievement lets us observe for the first time some of the remarkable workings of Einstein’s theory. Theoretical ideas about black holes which were close to being science fiction when I was a student are now reality.”

(It is curious that Nobel Laureate and Breakthrough Laureate Brian Schmidt who was on this committee is not mentioned.)

And don’t forget that Kip Thorne was made TIME’s Most Influential Man with lightning speed following the announcement of the discovery.

With that kind of finely choreographed build up of endorsements to a crescendo, the Nobel Prize is practically in the bag!

Who can stop this anymore?

Only the physics establishment can. I would like to see a total and pointed rejection by them of these endorsements from a select coterie of intellectuals bonded together by the fact that they have each eaten Yuri Milner’s salt. They are doing Milner’s bidding. Committee my foot!

I don’t know that a single solitary one of these endorsers has the ability to analyze the nitty-gritty of the LIGO instrument.
