LIGINT: LIGo INTelligence

February 17, 2018


First, two points.

Based on my reading of official investigation of past science frauds, it is standard practice to include relevant non-scientific, circumstantial matters (who entered the lab when, left when – that kind of thing.)

And we all know about how intelligence-gathering agencies analyze chatter – conversations in the airwaves – to gain specific knowledge.

When you put these two together, the work of Demetris Christopoulos would make sense. His reports were in plain public evidence and known to the Nobel Committee for Physics when they decided to award the LIGO Nobel Prize.

The following diagram is based on this report.

LIGO COURTROOM DRAMA: Trial Part 15

December 29, 2017

TRIAL PART 15

ON THE WITNESS STAND: Olga Botner (for the Defendants)

VINO MOSCATO (Attorney for the Defendants): Professor Botner, you are a member of the Committee that awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics. You had no obligation to come to this court, but you agreed to help the defendant Nobel Laureates in this case to the extent you can. The defendants are grateful for that. The parties in this case have stipulated that because of the Nobel secrecy rules, there are some areas we cannot go into. So if we ask any questions in those areas, you may simply decline to answer. Now Professor Botner, you and the Chairman of your Committee, Professor Nils Martensson, are two world-renowned experimentalists on the Committee, are you not?

OLGA BOTNER: We are experimentalists, yes.

MOSCATO: So is it correct to say that the two of you – who by the way work at the same place – that you have fully evaluated the LIGO experiment personally and collaboratively to your satisfaction before deciding on the award?

BOTNER: I cannot answer who evaluated what and how.

MOSCATO: But can you say if there are any doubts about the instrument being perfect?

BOTNER: Obviously, since we have given the Nobel Prize, there are no doubts.

MOSCATO: Thank you, Professor Botner. I have no further questions at this time. Your witness, Ms. Veritas.

ASSUMPTA VERITAS (Attorney for the Plaintiffs): Good Morning, Professor Botner. Were you and your fellow committeemen aware about any issues that had been raised by some critics about the LIGO instrument when you were deliberating on this award?

BOTNER: I cannot answer that.

VERITAS: OK. I will ask this another way. LIGO has two mirrors that are about 5.7 kilometers apart, and are not mechanically coupled in any way. The mirrors hang freely. The axes of the two mirrors are at right angles. Would that be a correct description?

BOTNER: In a simple way, yes.

VERITAS: We will keep it simple then. These mirrors move or oscillate or vibrate for a number of reasons: earth tremors, vehicles passing by and so on. Is this correct?

BOTNER: Yes.

VERITAS: Do the mirrors vibrate independently of each other – or is this some type of concerted motion?

BOTNER: They vibrate independently.

VERITAS: And what happens when a gravitational wave comes down?

BOTNER: Then the mirrors move in a concerted motion, as predicted by theory.

VERITAS: Is this concert observable? I mean, how do we know that the mirrors are moving in concert when normally they do not and there is no coupling of any kind between them?

BOTNER: We cannot actually observe this concerted motion because it is extremely small. But the LIGO readout shows that the motion is concerted.

VERITAS: Are you saying that the LIGO readout wiggles prove a concerted motion is prevailing?

BOTNER: Well, no. The concerted motion is a property of the gravitational wave. The wiggles tell us a gravitational wave is passing by, and that is how we then know that the mirrors must be in concerted motion.

VERITAS: And how exactly do the wiggles tell you that they are from a gravitational wave passing by?

BOTNER: Because the wiggles match black hole merger model.

VERITAS: You are trying to prove the existence of theorized gravitational waves by utilizing their theorized property of producing concerted motion. So isn’t the concerted motion the first thing you have to experimentally demonstrate as happening? How can you gloss over the very point of the experiment, the very purpose for which LIGO was built?

BOTNER: There is no way to demonstrate the concerted motion directly. We assume it to be happening.

VERITAS: That makes the whole business of LIGO detecting gravitational waves just an assumption in its entirety. Isn’t that right? It is just your word. There is absolutely no science behind this.

BOTNER: No, it is not right. LIGO is a high quality instrument for detecting gravitational waves.

VERITAS: Now, in reality, those mirrors are contained within a hermetically sealed steel vessel. So, you say that the gravitational wave does some business inside the vessel, business that you have no way of verifying. There is going on some type of unobservable entanglement of the two mirror motions. Then you say Hail Mary full of grace, and simply declare that the said business has actually taken place inside the vessel. Then you start matching this black hole merger stuff. And then you string together a complete story. Is that even remotely a scientific way of doing things?

BOTNER: I cannot answer that question because of Nobel secrecy.

VERITAS: Ah … the Nobel secrecy! Your Honor, I have no further questions.

JUDGE: Any redirect, Mr. Moscato?

MOSCATO: Yes, Your Honor. Professor Botner, did the Nobel Committee not say that the first LIGO detection was model independent? In other words, the black hole merger model is not necessary to invoke in order to demonstrate that the mirrors are in concerted motion? Wouldn’t that mean that just the readout wiggles by themselves prove that concerted motion is happening inside the vessel?

BOTNER: I .. er .. cannot go into that area.

MOSCATO: No further questions, You Honor.

JUDGE: The witness is excused.

A Swedish acknowledgement of LIGO fraud?

REASONABLE SPECULATION

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics for the LIGO fraud was rammed through the Nobel Prize process by a nefarious collaboration between the Nobel Committee in Physics and some American power-brokers. It was done with lightning speed so that the deed would be done before anyone suspected anything.

Once the prize was announced, the Swedes were left holding the bag, and the Americans were laughing all the way to Wells Fargo. The Nobel Prize – once announced – cannot be stopped for any reason (including, it seems, fraud).

Some Swedes woke up and realized what a horrible national and international and historical disaster had happened right under their nose. It was in fact an apocalyptic evil. But there was no other option for the Swedes than to proceed normally with the award ceremony as if nothing was amiss. However, the Royal Family had to briefed.

It has been the custom to pair up the lead physics Nobel Laureate with a prominent royal (usually the Queen or the Crown Princes). The prominent Laureate here was Rainer Weiss, with half-share of the Nobel Prize. But he was relegated to an obscure position without visibility – almost as though by design. Weiss was in fact rebuffed.

It is Kip Thorne who got paired with the Crown Princess. So everything looked perfectly normal – with no hint of the dark cloud of fraud anywhere in the sky. But at some point a red line had to be drawn. The Royal House would have insisted on this. The future monarch of Sweden could not be recorded for posterity in the high-profile procession, linking arms with a person who stood publicly accused of fraud by qualified scientists with full credentials. So that is how the procession was scripted. Kip Thorne understood and agreed to this.

This is why I think we have the first public acknowledgement of the LIGO fraud. And this is just the beginning of the end.

So enjoy your holidays in good spirit, LIGO dissidents.
