SOME TIMELY CONSIDERATIONS FOR LIGO DISSIDENTS

April 20, 2017

Get ready for the report of the next batch of detections. Here’s where LIGO stands:

As of March 23, 6 triggers, identified by online analysis using a loose false-alarm-rate threshold of one per month, have been identified and shared with astronomers who have signed memoranda of understanding with LIGO and Virgo for electromagnetic followup. A thorough investigation of the data and offline analysis are in progress; results will be shared when available.

And according to the following item, the report will come next month:

Professor Reitze said LIGO is five months into its second run and expects to make further announcements in a month or so about new observations.

From the Ligonauts’ point of view, much rides on this upcoming report, Nobel Prize not the least. Future funding of LIGO is also at stake, as is LIGO India. So there is tremendous pressure on them to come up with something most upbeat. This is a downright survival situation for them.

Now, here’s what the Ligonauts have told us about the essential characteristics of LIGO detections:

1. SIMULTANEOUS DETECTION: The waveform must be observed at both WA and LA stations to be a candidate.

2. TIME LAG: A lag in arrival times indicates the angle at which the wave is incident (i.e. the lag gives us the direction of the source.)

3. DIFFERENCE IN AMPLITUDES: There must be a difference in amplitudes because of the relative orientation of the two LIGO instruments (the surface normal to the Earth at the two stations point in different directions. And polarization-wise speaking, the arms are not parallel.)

4. ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNATURE: We are told that binary black holes merger is unlikely to have EM signature; binary neutron stars merger is likely to have EM signature.

So look for adherence (or not) to the above clear definitions. Look for fancy footwork to pass off waveforms that do not meet the above definitions as detection of gravitational wave.

There have been six sets of simultaneous waveforms in four months. So for the first time, we have multiple cases on which to do some collective analysis.

If these are not gravitational waves, then simultaneous events (from whatever source) are a way of life with LIGO. So the criterion (1) above becomes very loose.

If the above simultaneous events have time lags, the the criterion (2) above becomes very loose.

If the above events have an amplitude difference, the criterion (3) above becomes very loose.

So look for how they explain away those events that they say are not due to gravitational wave.

CALIBRATION: Also, what have they done about calibration? Without a proper calibration (which they have not reported thus far), all these numbers (x billion years, y Msuns etc) are straight fiction – straight out of Interstellar.

WAVEFORMS BURIED IN NOISE: Watch out for their digging up stuff from deep underneath the noise hash and passing it off as grand discovery. Remember the whole point of this observation run is that they have improved the sensitivity to be able to detect these new waveforms. So these signals should all be above the noise threshold.

However, keep in mind this: Your discussion should not give the impression that you accept that LIGO could in principle detect gravitational wave!

You do not want to legitimize crap by the mere act of critiquing it!

LIGO is a piece of crap.

Here is the latest on the future plans for LIGO:

LIGO is roughly halfway through its second advanced science run. It will continue to monitor the universe until the end of August. The group will then take a year off to upgrade and increase the sensitivity of the detectors and begin again in late summer 2018.

It seems to me that this assures another year of job security for 1000 ligonauts, without facing any scrutiny or prying eyes. Only very recently, just prior to commencing the second observation run, they told us that they squeezed out as much sensitivity out of the LIGO lemon as they possibly could. No more was possible. So how is that just six months later, more squeezing is possible? I mean, what variety of lemon is this?

What will happen is that they will make radical changes and upgrade their way out of the jam they are in. Nothing will remain of the present LIGO that can be opened up for review. And so the present discovery cannot be questioned any more with the help of the instrument. This is exactly what the BICEP2 boys did. This is straight out of their secret operations manual, from the section:

CHAPTER 7: HOW TO DEEP SIX A BAD INSTRUMENT AND AVOID ACCOUNTABILITY

Also, let us see if Pierre Meystre (The Physical Review Letters guy) publishes LIGO again! The guy just can’t seem to get enough of this stuff! He must be waiting with a stamp pad and a rubber stamp, and salivating.

Please stay vigilant and stay engaged. They are bastardizing our science and our civilization for personal fame and fortune. You are mankind’s only defense. This fact is in plain evidence.

LIGO USA TO LIGO INDIA: Quit stalling!

April 17, 2017


This post is based on what I read online. I connect the dots to develop a fuller picture. I have no inside sources.

First, what is the Indian LIGO stalling?

The Indian LIGO had been approved in its totality and the money had been earmarked. Then land acquisition had been completed. The next step was for the Indian Government to release the funds to LIGO to begin construction. The bulldozers and the earth movers were to go to work. But this is where the project is stuck. The money has not been released.

A cover story for public consumption both in US and India has been developed for sometime that this impasse is due to problems with finalizing the site selection process. I cannot say who cooked up this story, or why a cover story was at all needed.

The real story is that the Indian Government is taking its time to consider the project more fully. My guess is that they have obtained scientific opinion from a larger Indian scientific community (beyond the Indian Ligonauts).

How would more time help the Indian Government decide? Well, two crucial developments are in the offing: one only a month away, and the other less than six months away.

LIGO SECOND OBSERVATION RUN

After the two original detections, LIGO went through a tuneup to increase its sensitivity and so the chances of detection. The revamped LIGO was expected to log two detections per month. The second LIGO observation run (O2) started on 30 November 2016, and is expected to run for six months.

According to latest reports, they have about half a dozen O2 detections on hand and are evaluating these carefully. The results will be reported in May.

So it stands to reason that LIGO India decision should be postponed at least until then. When the results are published, the Government should consider what the LIGO dissidents have to say. Discount all other opinions.

THE 2017 NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS

This prize will likely be announced in the first part of October. The Ligonauts themselves have told the world that this prize would be a touchstone for LIGO. It stands to reason that the Indian Government might go ahead and wait for this announcement also. After all, what are six months in the life of this gigantic decades-long project?

However, the US LIGO people seem to have become impatient with this delay, and are pressurizing India to act immediately. Recently, two high level LIGO officials, Fred Raab and David Reitze, went to India and gave the following message to the Indian Ligonauts (as reported in the LIGO Weekly Reports 10-14 April 2017):

Dave and Fred met with the LIGO-India Science Management Board members. Topics of discussion included urgency of adoption of an integrated schedule for both the Project and Operations development, including human resource development, as well as recruitment of LIGO-India participation in the post O2 vacuum and detector modifications, which is a significant training opportunity.

This message says India should move immediately. The above sounds like a reasonable position. It is also an ultimatum. Therefore, the ball now goes to Indian Government’s court.

My opinion: A scam project has its sham timetable. Nothing can or should depend on it.

Consider also Australia’s position (see the previous post.)

LIGO: The Aussies will do their own gravitation research, thank you!

April 17, 2017


There is a news item out on the visit to Australia by LIGO Executive Director David “Wedidit!” Reitze. He was there to push LIGO on the Australians.

Strangely, he is the one who is now being said to be guaranteed to win the Nobel Prize this year! What happened to LIGO pioneers Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss being a “shoo-in”, a “sure bet”, “slam dunk” for the prize?

Lord have mercy!

LIGO Nobel Prize, David Reitz

Reading this report between the lines, I conclude that both Australian scientists and their Government are saying that they will do their own gravitation research and develop their own detector. Unlike the Indian Ligonauts, the Aussies do not appear to be thrilled to be chosen by the Americans for the honor to receive the gift of LIGO. The Aussies seem to think that they are the co-equal of the Americans when it comes to science.

Way to go, Australia!

WHY LIGO IS A LINE IN THE SAND

February 20, 2017

Over the past few decades we have seen the American physics establishment launch wave upon wave of gigantic discoveries that are either intricate scam or diabolic fraud. We have seen these discoveries then installed as scientific truth with the help of the American media which rules the roost worldwide.

These discoveries have then found their way to children’s textbooks the world over. Documented scientific and engineering proof of the fraud offered in public has had no impact whatsoever on this triumphal “march” of science.

The American physics establishment has acted like a monolith in its support of this megatrend. Not a single voice of dissent on these fraudulent ventures has arisen in these few decades. Neither an Edward R. Murrow nor an Edward Snowden has come forward from within their midst.

That is because there is no good left in their midst.

And such is the real nature of the intellectual vanguard of our civilization today. This is an amorphous mass of pure evil.

It is time for just indignation in all good men. LIGO should not be seen as a yet one more roll-out of a new product from Physics Fraud USA Inc.

It is time to draw a line in the sand. It is time to draw the battle lines.

Mankind’s only hope here is the few ragtag dissidents. The seven samurai.

So LIGO dissidents, your job is not done. Humanity looks to you. Civilization looks to you. Goddess of Truth looks to you. You have been chosen for the task.

You have drawn your cerebral sword. Now finish the move. Perform a clean kesa giri.

NOTE ADDED 2/20/2017:

As soon as the next LIGO detection is rolled out, it will reveal more evidence. So stay vigilant!
