Consequences Of A

Spring-And-Loop Theory

My Theory



 

#000

Spring-And-Loop Theory stands apart from the garbage that is physics today.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is anti-explosion, anti-fantasy and anti-lying.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is simple, broad, and problem-free.

Quelle nightmare!

#001

Relish the opportunity to be an outsider.
Embrace that label.
Because it's the outsiders who change the world
and who make a real and lasting difference.
Treat the word 'impossible' as nothing more than motivation.

- President Donald J. Trump

#002

"Scene changes inhibit a spectator's blink rate, thus increasing their attention.  It also produces a flow of brain activities from the occipital lobe towards the frontal lobe."

"The editing style influences a spectator's perception.  Scene changes presented in a dynamic and chaotic style, such as video-clips, produce more activity in the visual processing areas when compared to more continuous and orderly scene changes."

Likewise, the activity in frontal areas in charge of more complex processes is superior when the editing style is more continuous and orderly."
- Dynamic Audiovisuals Increase Attention, but Inhibit Conscious Processing

Spring-And-Loop Theory is presented in the plainest of ways.

The videos have almost no movement except to scroll to the next paragraph.

No fades. No jump cuts. No zooms (out or in).

Perhaps most importantly of all, no music.

If you let it, Spring-And-Loop Theory might just set you to thinking.

#003

For it is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. In order to overcome that tendency it is not sufficient to exhibit the true; it is also necessary to expose and denounce the false.
- H.L. Mencken

No one will ever bother to acknowledge Spring-And-Loop Theory until it is made point-blank-obvious that physics theories today are fundamentally broken and useless.

And that an alternative is needed.

At that point, Spring-And-Loop Theory will appear to be quite appealing and we'll find ourselves asking "Why weren't we told about it sooner?"

#004

Newton was the greatest genius who ever lived and the most fortunate;
for we cannot find more than once a system of the world to establish.

- Joseph Louis Lagrange

Superlatives suck.


A good model can always be superceded by a better model.

Or, heck, even just a model.

Newton didn't have a working model of gravity. Hence the "action at a distance" dilemma that has persisted for over 300 years, to the present day.

Einstein? Lots of equations and math (that he couldn't reduce without the help of David Hilbert) but no fundamental model. Why does no one mention this?


And then there is the Standard Model? It begins with a bang.

When was the last time you began building a house by detonating a stick of dynamite?

How about in piano class. Did you blow things up in order to learn?

The instruction never seen on a LEGO box: "Step one: blow stuff up."


This isn't just a matter of style but a deliberate tactic.

Get everyone to feel with their emotions from the start.

"Blow in my ear and I'll follow you anywhere."

#005

What certainty can there be in a philosophy which consists in as many hypotheses as there are phenomena to be explained. To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, and leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.
- Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

Spring-And-Loop Theory has taken the opposite approach.

300 years have gone by since the first great scientist.

Today we are closing in on understanding the majority of stuff.

There will always be an infinity of small questions, but
Spring-And-Loop Theory thinks it understands the big ones.

If you don't agree with this, please feel free to try to prove
Spring-And-Loop Theory wrong.

#006

We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance.
As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.

- John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008)

tEmP theories rely on it to expand their shores of ignorance.

Spring-And-Loop Theory puts the lie to this quote.

It removes unnecessary parts of the shoreline and provides elevated viewpoints -- thus decreasing the shoreline and removing ignorance.

#007

To be independent of public opinion
is the first formal condition
of achieving anything great.

- Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831)

#008

Q. Why are the theories of physics so similar in structure?
A. There are a number of possibilities. The first is the limited imagination of physicists: when we see a new phenomenon, we try to fit it into the framework we already have -- until we have made enough experiments, we don't know that it doesn't work. So when some fool physicist gives a lecture at UCLA in 1983 and says "This is the way it works, and look how wonderfully similar the theories are", it's not because Nature is really similar; it's because the physicists have only been able to think of the same darn thing, over and over again. Another possibility is that it is the same darn thing over and over again -- that Nature has only one way of doing things, and She repeats her story from time to time. A third possibility is that things look similar because they are aspects of the same thing -- a larger picture underneath, from which things can be broken into parts that look different, like fingers on the same hand. Many physicists are working very hard trying to put together a grand picture that unifies everything into one super-duper model. It's a delightful game, but at the present time none of the speculators agree with any of the other speculators as to what the grand picture is.

- Richard Feynman (1918-1988)

I have countless issues with this monster mash of excuses.

Capsule summary? This is what control looks like.

"Oh, no, we couldn't possibly make progress in physics because..." excuses.


"the limited imagination of physicists"

An exaggeration so extreme as to more resemble a boldface lie.

Physicists have an excess of imagination, and all too little sense.


"when we see a new phenomenon, we try to fit it into the framework we already have"

Then how do you explain dark matter? Dark energy? The inflaton? And hundreds of other problems in physics?

tEmP theorists get paid for inventing new crap.

They would lose a great deal of money if any part of their tower of babel was torn down.

So they are forever finding something "new" -- within each busted experiment -- and so one hacked off Hydra head becomes two.

A perpetual motion machine, adding to mankind's ignorance at a geometric rate.

Said in my best Arnold voice.


"it's not because Nature is really similar"

More gross distortion and truth avoidance.

Because there is no money in different things working in a similar way.

As the only way this could be possible is if the similar way is SIMPLE.

Simple is the death knell of tEmP theories.

And so you will never find such kryptonite within them.


"Another possibility is that it is the same darn thing over and over again -- that Nature has only one way of doing things, and She repeats her story from time to time."

Notice how this statement is not refuted, and not followed up on.

This is "The emperor is wearing no clothes" possibility.

Quickly moving on is how Feynman handles this potential minefield.


"A third possibility is that things look similar because they are aspects of the same thing -- a larger picture underneath, from which things can be broken into parts that look different, like fingers on the same hand."

This is the previous "disaster" (i.e. truth) thought, said with different words.

Not only does Feynman quickly move away from this, without refuting it, but he moves right into the grand deception...


"Many physicists are working very hard trying to put together a grand picture that unifies everything into one super-duper model."

Note the use of emotion-triggering words.

These physicists are many. And they are not just working, they are working very hard.

Their picture is not just complete, it is grand.

Unification will not just come in stages or pieces, it will be super-duper.

WHAT COLOSSAL HUBRIS.

In reality, tEmP theories are a rat's nest. They are unified in the way five hundred foot extension cords are unified: one big fat useless tangled mess.


"It's a delightful game"

Why that wording?

Because children love games. And they treat us like children.

Since children are easy to cheat.

Especially if the game is "fun". Whatever that means.


"but at the present time none of the speculators agree with any of the other speculators as to what the grand picture is."

"Thank goodness" he should have added.

A big useless game, involving not scientists but speculators, that is guaranteed to net a small group a large amount of money.

With Feynman at the heart of it.


Nuke tEmP theorists from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure.

#009

Without theory, practice is but routine born of habit.
Theory alone can bring forth and develop the spirit of invention.

- Louis Pasteur

Without theory, scientific knowledge would only be worthy of the madhouse.
- Oliver Heaviside

Close but not quite there.

Theories are like men. Without men, Apollo never gets to the moon. But also without men we wouldn't have turned Bikini island into a perpetually inhabitable hell on Earth.

We first need good models, built on the best assumptions, before good theories have a chance of appearing. But throughout it all we need good men to filter out the garbage, even if the garbage is as valuable as gold, myrrh and frankincense.

#010

Well-observed facts, though brought to light by passing theories, will never die; they are the material on which alone the house of science will at last be built.
- Claude Bernard

#011

The major credit I think Jim and I deserve is for selecting the right problem and sticking to it. It's true that by blundering about we stumbled on gold, but the fact remains that we were looking for gold. Both of us had decided, quite independently of each other, that the central problem in molecular biology was the chemical structure of the gene. We could not see what the answer was, but we considered it so important that we were determined to think about it long and hard, from any relevant point of view.
- Francis Crick, "What Mad Pursuit", 1990

Extremely true of tEmP theories.

They don't work on gravity; don't care that they are off by a factor of 10120 regarding the energy of space; and actually LIKE dark matter.

Mind blowing.

#012

Relativity and quantum mechanics remain incomplete. The main reason each is incomplete is the existence of the other. The mind calls for a third theory to unify all of physics, and for a simple reason. Nature is "unified"; interconnected, in that everything interacts with everything else.
- Lee Smolin, "The Trouble With Physics: The Rise Of String Theory, The Fall Of A Science And What Comes Next"

Lee Smolin is a well-known, credible physicists. Yet he states:
Relativity and quantum mechanics remain incomplete.

Have you ever heard that said before?

tEmP theorists rarely air their dirty laundry.
Perhaps because it would cover 1% of the Earth's surface.

Each part of Lee's quote is worth savoring and reflecting further on.

I'll wait while you read it again.

#013

Whether we like it or not, the ultimate goal of every science is to become trivial, to become a well-controlled apparatus for the solution of schoolbook exercises or for practical application in the construction of engines.
- Aharon Katchalsky-Katzir

Working yourself out of a job is not very profitable.

So few have the balls to do this today.

Still, this is a good idea. Recommended even.

If you want to be able to live with yourself in your later years.

#014

Young men should prove theorems, old men should write books.
- G. H. Hardy

#015

We have no right to assume that any physical law exists, or, if they have existed up to now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.
- Max Planck (1858-1947)

It is indeed a massive assumption, completely unjustified.

tEmP theories cling to laws without reason, expecting them to be absolutely true in all circumstances.

They decree that the speed of light is constant when they have zero reason to do this. It is just that they only have their absolutes; their decrees.


Another great example of the foolishness of tEmP theories is their "information loss in a black hole" problem.

tEmP theories say information can never be lost whereas Spring-And-Loop Theory sees a black hole as an endpoint, and treats it differently.

Expecting the wall of a shack to be the same temperature as the wood stove in the middle, while the temperature outside is 40 below, is foolish.

By the way, it is not that any fundamental laws are broken in a black hole, but rather that the incorrect perspective of tEmP theories causes them to expect one thing when another is what will occur.

#016

Replacement of gravitation with curvature was an attempt to explain a certain secret by means of a riddle.
- G.C. Mack-Vitti

Yes it is a hack.

Which is fine if it turns out to be correct.

But there is no easy way to discern this.


As of January, 2019, Spring-And-Loop Theory is ready to declare there is no curvature of "space".

Rather, mass dampens spring energy, with the net affect being an imbalance of energy on objects near a mass.

As a result, objects are drawn toward objects.


Translating this to the effect on light passing by an object, one needs to see light for what it is -- transient spring bumps propagating energy.

Mass reduces the strength of springs that bump it, so the light bumps will be more strongly made in the direction of the mass, and more weakly made in the direction away from it.

When sailing with a cross wind, the boat's path is skewed, but it was not "curved water" that did the skewing.

#017

You can always tell genius when the solution is simple
but takes ages for someone to figure out.

- T.M.B.

There are few theories in any field simpler than Spring-And-Loop Theory.

Yet I've not met a second person who sees how it works.

And that is not because Spring-And-Loop Theory doesn't work.


To the contrary, no one has ever found a fundamental flaw with Spring-And-Loop Theory.

All are encouraged to look for one.

Otherwise I'm in danger of becoming a donut-loving policeman in a town where no one breaks the law.

Bore-ing!

#018

While the method of the natural sciences is analytic, the method of the social sciences is better described as compositive or synthetic. The groups of elements which are structurally connected, which we learn to single out from the totality of observed phenomena.
- Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)

This quote points out the problem with both fields.

Science needs a more holistic, and intuitive, approach.

Social studies needs the science of name analysis before it can be called social science.

#019

There are very few theorems in advanced analysis which have been demonstrated in a logically tenable manner. Everywhere one finds this miserable way of concluding from the special to the general and it is extremely peculiar that such a procedure has led to so few of the so-called paradoxes.
- Niels Henrik Abel

"Concluding from the special to the general" is exactly what Einstein did with relativity.

No wonder relativity has produced no offspring.

Worse, it blows up at endpoints, lacks a fundamental model and can't decide if it doesn't need the ether, or is ether-based.

#020

It is human to search for the theory of everything
and it is superhuman to find it.

- Kedar Joshi (December 31, 1979-)

As complimentary as this quote is to Spring-And-Loop Theory, Spring-And-Loop Theory doesn't really agree.

Unifying physics was more about the rejection of nonsense.

Absolute, total, permanent rejection.


Few are strong enough to do this.

Yet once the rejection barrier is in place, it is just a matter of putting puzzle pieces together.

Yes there is a certain amount of trial-and-error, but it was all very inevitable.


Much like President Trump's draining of the swamp was.

Removing brainwashing (and brainwashers) from the world is the key log solution to every single "problem" one can think of.

#021

There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world;
and that is an idea whose time has come.

- Victor Hugo

Spring-And-Loop Theory is a group of ideas

Built with basic principles

Based on sound assumption foundations

Whose time is now.

#022

Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it. One should earn one's living by work of which one is sure one is capable. Only when we do not have to be accountable to anybody can we find joy in scientific endeavor.
- Albert Einstein

#023

What struck me most in England was the perception that only those works which have a practical tendency awake attention and command respect, while the purely scientific, which possess far greater merit are almost unknown. And yet the latter are the proper source from which the others flow. Practice alone can never lead to the discovery of a truth or a principle. In Germany it is quite the contrary. Here in the eyes of scientific men no value, or at least but a trifling one, is placed upon the practical results. The enrichment of science is alone considered worthy attention.
- Justus von Liebig (May 12, 1803-1873)

Both science and engineering are needed.

In essence, problems need to be solved.

If we need to figure out what is going on -- i.e. science.

If we understand, but just need to build something -- engineer it.

#024

What a person praises is perhaps a surer standard than what he condemns, of his character, information and abilities. No wonder then that most people are so shy of praising anything.
- Augustus William Hare (Nov 17, 1792-1834)

I have yet to hear a kind word about Spring-And-Loop Theory from anyone resembling a scientist.

Artists have shown themselves to be much more scientific than supposed scientists.

One even used the very phrase I use to summarize my theory -- Spring-And-Loop Theory is a clarifying lens.

#025

No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.
- Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

At best that is a poor choice of words.

Before discovery are observations.

When observations appear to disturb existing theories or understandings, one has to be able to live in this unresolved state.

Often for long periods of time.

If one rides it out, and one puts forth a considerable amount of sincere effort trying to resolve things, one might attract a new and better understanding.

"Guess" hardly does it justice.

#026

What is known for certain is dull.
- Max Ferdinand Perutz

What does it matter that something may be 'dull'?

Good people try to get useful and important stuff done.

Should they build a bridge using 'certain' stuff, or a whole heap of hope?

#027

I wish, my dear Kepler, that we could have a good laugh together at the extraordinary stupidity of the mob. What do you think of the foremost philosophers of this University? In spite of my oft-repeated efforts and invitations, they have refused, with the obstinacy of a glutted adder, to look at the planets or the Moon or my telescope.
- Galileo Galilei

I wish we could have a good laugh at the extraordinary stupidity of tEmP theorists. What do you think of the foremost physicists of this world? In spite of my oft-repeated efforts and invitations, they have refused, with the obstinacy of a glutted adder, to look into Spring-And-Loop Theory, or its consequences.

#028

In a way, my design works as much because the belt is comfortable for the user as it does because it is safer.
- Nils Bohlin, designer of the three-point safety belt

And it is easier to put on, compared to the lap belt or the four point harness.

Good design has multiple and ongoing benefits.

Spring-And-Loop Theory continues to improve, solving more problems today that it did two, four and six years ago. While becoming simpler at the same time.

If you can think of anything else -- other than heliocentrism -- that has ever done that, please let me know.

#029

Suppose there is something which a person cannot understand. He happens to notice the similarity of this something to some other thing which he understands quite well. By comparing them he may come to understand the thing which he could not understand up to that moment. If his understanding turns out to be appropriate and nobody else has ever come to such an understanding, he can claim that his thinking was really creative.
- Hideki Yukawa, "Creativity And Intuition: A Physicist Looks At East and West", 1973

Spring-And-Loop Theory is not complex.

It doesn't involve higher level math, nor an extensive use of equations.

It doesn't break down constantly, nor require a new fudge factor for every month of the year.

Yet it models the universe completely and explains everything better than tEmP theories.

It is, truly, a creative new theory.

If that interests you, you're in luck because Spring-And-Loop Theory is 100% free and available for anyone to use and build off of*.

* - Just give Spring-And-Loop Theory credit.

Without that last condition, the same monsters behind the "Standard" "Model" would soon twist Spring-And-Loop Theory into the shape of a quintron.

#030

Astronomy had three great revolutions in the past four hundred years. The first was the Copernican revolution that removed the earth from the center of the solar system and placed it 150 million kilometers away from it; the second occurred between 1920 and 1930 when, as a result of the work of Harlow Shapley and Robert Julius Trumple, we realized that the solar system is not at the center of the Milky Way but about 30,000 light years away from it, in a relatively dim spiral arm; the third is occurring now, and, whether we want it or not, we must take part in it. This is the revolution embodied in the question: Are we alone in the universe?
- Otto Struve

Spring-And-Loop Theory is the start of a fourth great revolution.

One that brings a simple, unified consistent theory to physics.

And also marks an ending.

tEmP theories are officially obsolete. Fully deprecated.

Officially worthless. Of Ptolemaic importance only.

Cautionary tales. Don't do what they did.

Ex theories. Not just resting but dead.

Anyone for Taps?

#031

The sound of progress is perhaps the sound of plummeting hypotheses.
- Peter Haggett

The plummeting of tEmP theories heralds the dawn of a new age.

An age that returns to its roots; respecting and adding to the work of Newton, Maxwell, Planck and Whittaker.

The age of Spring-And-Loop Theory.

#032

It's not that we need new ideas but we need to stop having old ideas.
- Edwin Land (May 7, 1909-1991)

We certainly need to stop with old broken ideas.

We also need new ideas.

Cue Spring-And-Loop Theory.

#033

It is the theory which decides what we can observe.
- Albert Einstein

#034

The only thing that matters is that a theory is efficacious, that it works, and that the necessary preliminaries and side issues do not cost too much in time and effort.
- Bertram N. Brockhouse

Spring-And-Loop Theory is all of this, and more.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is efficacious ("producing the intended response"), works at explaining all aspects of the Universe (a lofty claim, but try to disprove it), and is the most time and effort efficient theory ever conceived.

In contrast, tEmP theories are dishonest, parasitic and self-propagating.

tEmP theories are pathetic. Yet shameless.

#035

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
- Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

Your time is limited, so don't waste it trying to grasp tEmP theories.
#036

Physics is interesting BECAUSE it is so screwed up.
- Floyd Maxwell (1957-)

#037

No one must think that Newton's great creation can be overthrown in any real sense by the theory of Relativity or by any other theory. His clear and wide ideas will forever retain their significance as the foundation on which our modern conceptions of physics have been built.
- Albert Einstein

Forever is quite a long time.

Newton never explained WHY gravity behaves as it does.

Newton's hegemony is as vulnerable as Einstein's.

Meet the new boss: Ether.

#038

One of my surgical giant friends had in his operating room a sign "If the operation is difficult, you aren't doing it right." He meant you have to plan every operation. You can't ever be casual. You have to realize any operation is a potential fatality.
- Joseph E. Murray

If your theory is difficult, your model is wrong.


Back to the quote...
Somehow you managed to completely misunderstand your friend's sign.

When you do things well, they are done easily.

When you try to force things, they are done with difficulty or not at all.


The points you mention are unrelated to their point.

Yes, you should do some amount of planning. But do you need to plan when playing with a young child? Shouldn't that be a more intuitive, and more honest, expression? And if it is honest, and intuitive, won't it be easier?

As to realizing that "any operation is a potential fatality", this is an almost childishly obvious statement. True for crossing the street, or taking a bath. And how does this make doing anything easier? It doesn't. It tightens us up. Makes us fearful and overly cautious.


All in all, a total fail, Mr. Murray.

Someone handed you wisdom, and you misinterpreted what it meant.

That's like picking up a rock and telling everyone it is a peach. Mind-blowing.


Yet your thought butchery is unsurprising for those who can analyse names...

Joseph is a 2-8-1 (where the 2 represents the total of the vowels, and 1 is the total of all letters). Both the 2 and the 1 are highly undesirable in the name. The 2 is the most fearful, btw.

Murray is a 4-2-6. The 4 has the narrowest, most cautious, view. Causing it to work much harder, while accomplishing so much less, than other more suitable numeric qualities. Your loss.

#039

New ideas seem like frightening ghosts to people at the beginning; they run away from them for a long time.
- Mehmet Murat ildan

#040

Science starts with preconception, with the common culture, and with common sense. It moves on to observation, is marked by the discovery of paradox, and is then concerned with the correction of preconception. It moves then to use these corrections for the designing of further observation and for more refined experiment.
- J. Robert Oppenheimer

One clarification. Science doesn't just "move on to" the other things Oppie mentions.

Science is stuck with its preconceptions. They can be painfully difficult to erase, remove or replace.

Common culture also remains, and is furthered by, the media. Who don't want answers or improvements, as that shuts down the profit train.

It is really only common sense that keeps the science train on the tracks.

Long live common sense.

#041

Supposing is good, but finding out is better.
- Mark Twain

#042

Scientific development depends in part on a process of non-incremental or revolutionary change.
- Thomas S. Kuhn

People, left to their own devices, bog down.

Scientists do this on mass, and for decades or longer.

"Non-incremental or revolutionary change" is constantly needed for progress.

#043

The initial stage, the act of conceiving or inventing a theory, seems to me neither to call for logical analysis nor to be susceptible of it.
- Karl Raimund Popper, "The Logic Of Scientific Discovery", 1959

This might be true of fantasy theories,

the musings of undisciplined, non-engineering minds,

or the lies of charlatans.


Back to the quote...
No part of a theory is more important than the initial part.

Therefore no part demands logical analysis more.

It is as simple as that.


If you want to progress a field, be prepared to fail.

Be prepared to be the first person to see the flaws in your new favorite idea.

Persevere regardless, but be prepared.

#044

No one has yet been found so firm of mind and purpose as resolutely to compel himself to sweep away all theories and common notions, and to apply the understanding, thus made fair and even, to a fresh examination of particulars.
- Francis Bacon (1561-1626), "Novum Organum", 1620

Spring-And-Loop Theory has done exactly this.

And generalizations suck.

#045

The dimmed outlines of phenomenal things all merge into one another unless we put on the focusing-glass of theory, and screw it up sometimes to one pitch of definition and sometimes to another, so as to see down into different depths through the great millstone of the world.
- James Clerk Maxwell, "Are There Real Analogies In Nature?", 1856

#046

The first business of a man of science is to proclaim the truth as he finds it, and let the world adjust itself as best it can to the new knowledge.
- Percy W. Bridgman

Proclaim the truth and watch the 1% ignore you if you're right.

And then try to steal your idea, as well as the credit for it.

Suing, prosecuting or even 'offing' you if necessary.

Fun times.


Still, the way forward is this way.

Dedicate yourself to the pursuit of truth.

And on finding it, share it as it is.

#047

Observation is like a piece of glass, which, as a mirror, must be very smooth, and must be very carefully polished, in order that it may reflect the image pure and undistorted.
- Justus von Liebig

Observation is overrated.

After observing, a great deal of the most precise and unforgiving type of work remains.

Then there's the tipping over of sacred cows.

#048

Darwin's theory was received in Russia with profound sympathy. While in Western Europe it met firmly established old traditions which it had first to overcome, in Russia its appearance coincided with the awakening of our society after the Crimean War and here it immediately received the status of full citizenship and ever since has enjoyed widespread popularity.
- Aleksandr Onufriyevich Kovalevsky

Communism is god-less. Darwinism suits it perfectly.

Spring-And-Loop Theory represents both a challenge
and an opportunity for tEmP theorists.

But first they will have to give up their profitable nonsense.

Not an easy task.

After doing so, there will be a veritable explosion of good physics, and widespread understanding (at last).

The choice is up to tEmP theorists.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is comfortable, yet not complacent, where it stands.

#049

We must avoid postulating a new element for each new phenomenon, but an equally serious mistake is to admit into the theory only those elements which can now be observed. The purpose of a theory is not only to correlate the results of observations that we already know how to make, but also to suggest the need for new kinds of observations and to predict their results. In fact, the better a theory is able to suggest the need for new kinds of observations and to predict their results correctly, the more confidence we have that this theory is likely to be a good representation of the actual properties of matter and not simply an empirical system especially chosen in such a way as to correlate a group of already known facts.
- David Bohm (1917-1992)

#050

In relativity, movement is continuous, causally determinate and well defined, while in quantum mechanics it is discontinuous, not causally determinate and not well defined. Each theory is committed to its own notions of essentially static and fragmentary modes of existence -- relativity to that of separate events, connectable by signals, and quantum mechanics to a well-defined quantum state. One thus sees that a new kind of theory is needed which drops these basic commitments and, at most, recovers some essential features of the older theories as abstract forms derived from a deeper reality in which what prevails in unbroken wholeness.
- David Bohm (1917-1992)

Spring-And-Loop Theory is this "new kind of theory".

#051

It's hardly possible to overstate the value, in the present state of human improvement, of placing human beings in contact with other persons dissimilar to themselves, and with modes of thought and action unlike those with which they are familiar. Such communication has always been one of the primary sources of progress.
- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

This is why Spring-And-Loop Theory is constantly reading the pulp fiction known as tEmP theories.

Sadly, Spring-And-Loop Theory is almost out of problems to work on.

If you know any good ones not already covered by Spring-And-Loop Theory, please forward them to me.

The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas
as in escaping from old ones.

- John Maynard Keynes

Both are difficult.

Pretty much everyone knows that physics is full of problems.

Yet few have moved away from tEmP theories because there hasn't been a better theory put forward. Until now.

#053

Unexpected results are what have most inspired my photography.
- Harold E. Edgerton

Unexpected results are what have most inspired my physics.
#054

No generalizing beyond the data? No theory.
No theory? No insight.
No insight? Why research?

- Henry Mintzberg

Theories are vitally important.

They are where the rubber meets the road.

Thus, modelling is the future.

#055

I'm not far right. I'm free.
- Candace Owens

Spring-And-Loop Theory is not dogmatic.

It is free. To all.

Just give credit back to the theory when you use it.

#056

Reality is not in the visible world but in the world of ideas.
- Plato

Not quite.

The real work happens in the world of ideas.
#057

Oh, my dear Kepler, how I wish that we could have a hearty laugh together. Here, at Padua, is the principal professor of philosophy, whom I have repeatedly and urgently requested to look at the moon and planets through my telescope, which he pertinaciously refuses to do. Why are you not here? What shouts of laughter we should have at this glorious folly! And to hear the professor of philosophy at Pisa laboring before the grand duke with logical arguments, as if with magical incantations, to charm the new planets out of the sky.
- Galileo Galilei

#058

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed,
without any other reason but because they are not already common.

- John Locke

When you reward people financially for staying with the old.

Nothing ever changes.

And only the 1% are happy.

#059

Nothing is accomplished all at once;
Nature makes no leaps.
I call this the law of continuity.

- Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

#060

The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument,
not the suppression of ideas.

- Carl Sagan

Spring-And-Loop Theory is the cure for the non-arguments of tEmP theories

#061

Modern physics has managed to convince the average person that theories can either be simple (and wrong), or complex (and right).
- Spring-And-Loop Theory

#062

The first effect of the mind growing cultivated is that processes once multiple get to be performed in a single act. Lazarus has called this the progressive "condensation" of thought. Steps really sink from sight. An advanced thinker sees the relations of his topics in such masses and so instantaneously that when he comes to explain to younger minds it is often hard. Bowditch, who translated and annotated Laplace's "Mechanique Celeste", said that whenever his author prefaced a proposition by the words "it is evident", he knew that many hours of hard study lay before him.
- William James

Reject the complex.

Truly "advanced" thinkers are simplifiers.

And truly useful theories are simple.

#063

The great liability of the engineer compared to men of other professions is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. He cannot, like the architects, cover his failures with trees and vines. If his works do not work, he is damned. That is the phantasmagoria that haunts his nights and dogs his days. He comes from the job at the end of the day resolved to calculate it again.
- Herbert Hoover

Whereas tEmP theorists can always invent a new excuse.

So far, they've come up with dark matter, dark energy, the inflaton, the Higgs and the funniest one of them all -- the big bang.

Spring-And-Loop Theory, designed by an engineer, just works.

#064

There is not less wit nor invention in applying rightly a thought one finds in a book, than in being the first author of that thought.
- Pierre Bayle (1647-1706)

tEmP theorists define "not invented here" syndrome.

They are dogmatists who lack one key thing: morality.

To non-dogmatic minds, Spring-And-Loop Theory offers the ultimate competitive advantage.

#065

The most practical solution is a good theory.
- Albert Einstein

#066

The new appears as a minority point of view, and hence is unpopular. The function of a university is to give it a sanctuary.
- Martin H. Fischer

Universities are for creating an elite.

It is doubtful universities have ever embraced new ideas.

The new will always be a minority point of view.

So get used to being in the minority.

That are right.

#067

The presentation of mathematics where you start with definitions, for example, is simply wrong. Definitions aren't the places where things start. Mathematics starts with ideas and general concepts, and then definitions are isolated from concepts. Definitions occur somewhere in the middle of a progression or the development of a mathematical concept. The same thing applies to theorems and other icons of mathematical progress. They occur in the middle of a progression of how we explore the unknown.
- Michael P. Starbird

Right.

Models, based on assumptions, may lead to theories, that might have some mathematical basis.

Science fictions like tEmP theories can begin wherever they please.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is almost completely formula free.

The only formula Spring-And-Loop Theory has introduced involves the energy of the total system, ether included, and makes e=mc2 look like the ripple it is.

#068

Science is best defined as a careful, disciplined, logical search for knowledge about any and all aspects of the universe, obtained by examination of the best available evidence and always subject to correction and improvement upon discovery of better evidence.
- James Randi

This is a superb quote. Wall worthy.

I love the idea of correction and improvement.

Have any physicists ever spotted either of these in the wild?

#069

The reason Richard Feynman's physics was so hard for ordinary people to grasp was that he did not use equations. Dick just wrote down the solutions out of his head without ever writing down the equations. He had a physical picture of the way things happen, and the picture gave him the solutions directly with a minimum of calculation. It was no wonder that people who had spent their lives solving equations were baffled by him. Their minds were analytical; his was pictorial.
- Freeman Dyson

This would make him an awful teacher.

Yet he is all too often praised as the best of teachers.

On the plus side, Feynman obviously had a lens.

Spring-And-Loop Theory also has a clarifying lens, and unlike Feynman's lens, the Spring-And-Loop Theory is built on sound foundations.

For what it's worth, Feynman's lens was built on the Standard Model's exhaustive but completely off track sub-atomic particles.

Spring-And-Loop Theory goes down to the absolute lowest level and builds up with the only building blocks there are -- springs and loops.

The springs are the marbles in the universe-sized box of marbles. Marbles, marbles everywhere.

The loops are the "mass" or "matter" but can be more precisely identified as protons.

Neutrons are just protons with an extra electron (i.e. spring) fitting in due to the gravity-shrinking space that the proton creates.

The hundreds of supposed sub-atomic particles are just a fiction.

A highly profitable fiction.

#070

Progress is achieved by exchanging our theories for new ones which go further than the old, until we find one based on a larger number of facts. Theories are only hypotheses, verified by more or less numerous facts. Those verified by the most facts are the best, but even then they are never final, never to be absolutely believed.
- Claude Bernard

It is not quantity of facts that ranks theories.

A theory must be self-consistent. This wipes out most of tEmP theories.

The next, and last, key metric is simplicity.

Among working theories, good ones are simpler than bad ones.

#071

Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know, and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know -- even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction -- than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too.
- Isaac Asimov (1920-1992)

Truth is tops, for sure.

The difficult question, however, is "Would you rather be lied to by tEmP theories, or to catch a glimpse of the truth of Spring-And-Loop Theory, even if it means you can no longer consider working for a tEmP theorist?"

Double check your work before you answer.

#072

The young specialist in English Lit, having quoted me, went on to lecture me severely on the fact that in every century people have thought they understood the Universe at last, and in every century they were proved to be wrong. It follows that the one thing we can say about our modern "knowledge" is that it is wrong. The young man then quoted with approval what Socrates had said on learning that the Delphic oracle had proclaimed him the wisest man in Greece. "If I am the wisest man," said Socrates, "it is because I alone know that I know nothing." The implication was that I was very foolish because I was under the impression I knew a great deal. Alas, none of this was new to me. (There is very little that is new to me; I wish my correspondents would realize this.) This particular theme was addressed to me a quarter of a century ago by John Campbell, who specialized in irritating me. He also told me that all theories are proven wrong in time. My answer to him was, "John, when people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together."
- Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), "The Relativity Of Wrong", 1989

#073

Theories should not be used to select observations; on the contrary,
it is observations which should be used to select the theories.

- Unknown

The word "select" is the wrong choice here.

Good theories are constrained by observations,
constrained by assumptions
and constrained by common sense.

"Selection" is a far too biased, emotional and human a word.

For something as important as a theory of everything.

#074

Theory and fact are equally strong and utterly interdependent; one has no meaning without the other. We need theory to organize and interpret facts, even to know what we can or might observe. And we need facts to validate theories and give them substance.
- Stephen Jay Gould

Excellent.

We also need a model.

Without it, we get promises, like the "Standard" "Model".

That are really the "Agreed Upon" "Lies".


This is no small addition.

Models can take years, even decades, to be fashioned.

And, no matter how great they are, they can be discarded in a heart beat.

Just ask JCM.

#075

A TRULY STUPENDOUS QUOTE
A TRULY STUPENDOUS QUOTE
A TRULY STUPENDOUS QUOTE

There is no more convincing proof of the truth of a comprehensive theory than its power of absorbing and finding a place for new facts, and its capability of interpreting phenomena which had been previously looked upon as unaccountable anomalies. A false theory can never do this. Advancing knowledge brings to light whole groups of facts which it cannot deal with.
- Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913)

Spring-And-Loop Theory has absorbed and found a place for new facts.

Spring-And-Loop Theory has absorbed and found a place for new facts.

Spring-And-Loop Theory has improved due to the problems in tEmP theories.


Alfred Russel Wallace was an interesting dude, by the way.

Alfred Russel Wallace (Jan 8, 1823-Nov 7, 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist, and biologist. He's best known for independently conceiving the theory of evolution through natural selection; his paper on the subject was jointly published with some of Charles Darwin's writings in 1858.

He was considered the 19th century's leading expert on the geographical distribution of animal species and is sometimes called the "father of biogeography".

Wallace was one of the leading evolutionary thinkers of the 19th century and made many other contributions besides being co-discoverer of natural selection. These included the concept of warning colouration in animals, and the Wallace effect.

He was strongly attracted to unconventional ideas (such as evolution). His advocacy of spiritualism and his belief in a non-material origin for the higher mental faculties of humans strained his relationship with some members of the scientific establishment.
- Wiki

#076

There is no result in nature without a cause.
Understand the cause and you've no need of the experiment.

- Leonardo da Vinci

The one thought tEmP theorists never want to hear.

But imagine how much money would be saved by doing this.

Now THAT is a happy thought.

#077

There is nothing which Nature so clearly reveals, and upon which science so strongly insists, as the universal reign of law -- absolute, universal, invariable law. Not one jot or tittle of the laws of Nature are unfulfilled. I do not believe it is possible to state this fact too strongly. Everything happens according to law.
- Joseph LeConte

Spring-And-Loop Theory is entirely consistent with almost* every law there is.

The "speed of light is constant" is false, and so that falsehood (of tEmP theories) is not a part of Spring-And-Loop Theory.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is the simplest possible theory of everything. Completely unified. And as absolute, universal and invariable as it gets.

#078

Those scientists who dislike entertaining contradictory thoughts
are unlikely to enrich their science with new ideas.

- Max Planck (1858-1947)

When an otherwise working theory is found to be broken, one must immediately have a contradictory thought -- that it is both working AND broken.

Get used to it.

#079

To him who looks at the world rationally the world looks rationally back.
- Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

To him who looks at the world simply...
To him who looks at the world as unified...
To him who looks at the world as modelable...

...the world gives him Spring-And-Loop Theory back.

#080

To introduce something altogether new would mean to begin all over, to become ignorant again, and to run the old, old risk of failing to learn.
- Isaac Asimov (1920-1992)

It is false that one has to "become ignorant again".

One's base assumptions merely become open to question; open to change if that makes sense.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is both something new and also something old.


To modern physicists, Spring-And-Loop Theory might appear to be "altogether new".

But it isn't.

It is based on the ether, that is at least as old as Newton.


It is in harmony with the calculated background energy of space (unlike tEmP theories that think space is nearly energyless, or some random energy).

It is more like a different interpretation of the facts (i.e. observables), that happens to better align with them.

The numerous benefits of this better way of looking at the Universe are of all kinds. Simpler, clearer, more consistent, fewer (i.e. zero) unsolved problems.

#081

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk. - who said this?

tEmP theories are a pile of junk.

tEmP theories are potentially useful if we realize that only parts of them are useful.

To have invented a better theory than the existing theories, suggests Spring-And-Loop Theory is also based on a good imagination.

Please test it out for yourself.

#082

We can invent as many theories as we like, and any one of them can be made to fit the facts. But that theory is always preferred which makes the fewest number of assumptions.
- Albert Einstein

Spring-And-Loop Theory accomplishes the most with the least.

No other theory, or family of theories, comes close.

#083

The elements of the scientific method are interrelated. Facts are necessary materials; but their working up by experimental reasoning -- by theory -- is what establishes and really builds up science. Ideas, given form by facts, embody science. A scientific hypothesis is merely a scientific idea, preconceived or previsioned. A theory is a scientific idea controlled by experiment. Reasoning gives a form to our ideas, so that everything leads back to an idea. The idea is what establishes the starting point of all scientific reasoning.
- Claude Bernard

#084

What is important is the gradual development of a theory, based on a careful analysis of the facts. Its first uses are necessarily to elementary problems where the result has never been in doubt and no theory is actually required. At this early stage the use serves to corroborate the theory. The next stage develops when the theory is applied to more complicated situations in which it may already lead beyond the obvious and familiar. Here theory and use corroborate each other mutually. Beyond lies the field of real success: genuine prediction by theory.
- John von Neumann

#085

What the founders of modern science, among them Galileo, had to do, was not to criticize and to combat certain faulty theories, and to correct or to replace them by better ones. They had to do something quite different. They had to destroy one world and to replace it by another. They had to reshape the framework of our intellect itself, to restate and to reform its concepts, to evolve a new approach to Being, a new concept of knowledge, a new concept of science -- and even to replace a pretty natural approach, that of common sense, by another which is not natural at all.
- Alexandre Koyre, "Galileo And Plato", 1943

Spring-And-Loop Theory destroys the house of cards known as tEmP theories.

Imagine the threat this is to those making billions from the existing crapfest.

#086

What the scientists have always found by physical experiment was an a priori orderliness of nature, or Universe always operating at an elegance level that made the discovering scientist's working hypotheses seem crude by comparison. The discovered reality made the scientists' exploratory work seem relatively disorderly.
- R. Buckminster Fuller

Until Spring-And-Loop Theory...

#087

Those who think 'Science is measurement' should search Darwin's works for numbers and equations.
- David Hunter Hubel

Spring-And-Loop Theory could easily be "proved" -- that is, accepted as much as any other theory -- without ever measuring anything.

The measurements have already been done.

What has been needed is to properly _explain_ those measurements.


Darwin was measuring, but his theory wasn't 'higher math' dominated.

This is the crux of the problem with tEmP theories.

Far too much math, and far too little feel/common sense.

#088

To discover a conception of the mind which will justly represent a train of observed facts is, in some measure, a process of conjecture, and the business of conjecture is commonly conducted by calling up before our minds several suppositions, selecting that one which most agrees with what we know of the observed facts. Hence he who has to discover the laws of nature may have to invent many suppositions before he hits upon the right one; and among the endowments which lead to his success, we must reckon that fertility of invention which ministers to him such imaginary schemes, till at last he finds the one which conforms to the true order of nature.
- William Whewell, "Philosophy Of The Inductive Sciences", 1847

#089

When an investigator has developed a formula which gives a complete representation of the phenomena within a certain range, he may be prone to satisfaction. Would it not be wiser if he should say "Foiled again! I can find out no more about Nature along this line."
- Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882-1944)

Right.

The follow-up COASALT talks have added greatly to the original theory.

Good theories build, awful theories like Relativity stultify.

Or are stillborn (String Theory).

Or they just give up (QM's 'can't know').

#090

When we meet a fact which contradicts a prevailing theory, we must accept the fact and abandon the theory, even when the theory is supported by great names and generally accepted.
- Claude Bernard

tEmP theorists are incapable of abandoning their broken parts.

Physics today is a bunch of centenarians competing in the Geriatric Olympiad.

Excitement!

#091

A theory is something nobody believes, except the person who made it.
- Albert Einstein

Belief is not a good word to use in scientific discussion.

The creator of a theory is at the heart of it and naturally sees it the best.

At least at first.

#092

Every improvement in communication makes the bore more terrible.
- Frank Moore Colby

Every improvement in Spring-And-Loop Theory

makes tEmP theories that much more intolerable.

#093

If you are impeccable with your word,
if you don't take anything personally,
if you don't make assumptions,
if you always do your best,
then you are going to have a beautiful life.
You will control your life one hundred percent.

- Miguel Ruiz, "The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide To Personal Freedom"

Conversely, when your theories are lies,
and your assumptions are horrendous,
then you're just in the way.

#094

A fact is worth more than theories in the long run. The theory stimulates, but the fact builds. The former in due time is replaced by one better but the fact remains and becomes fertile.
- Theobald Smith

Facts are of low value, sterile and too often redundant.

They can also rot from disuse. Today the ether fact is rotting on the vine.

Theory -- good theory -- is what lives on.

#095

There may develop a struggle between the followers of the old methods and those of the newer ones. The former's point of view will be termed by their opponents as out-dated and outworn, while its holders in turn belittle the innovators as corrupters of true classical science.
- Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann (1844-1906)

#096

Let one concentrate all his energies in one single great effort, let him perceive a single truth, even though he be consumed by the sacred fire, then millions of less gifted men can easily follow. Therefore it is not as much quantity as quality of work which determines the magnitude of the progress.
- Nikola Tesla, "On Electricity"

#097

A discovery in science, or a new theory, even when it appears most unitary and all-embracing, deals with some immediate element of novelty or paradox within the framework of far vaster, unanalysed, unarticulated reserves of knowledge, experience, faith and presupposition. Our progress is narrow; it takes a vast world unchallenged and for granted. This is one reason why, however great the novelty or scope of new discovery, we neither can, nor need, rebuild the house of the mind very rapidly. This is one reason why science, for all its revolutions, is conservative. We will have to accept that no one of us really will ever know very much. This is why we shall have to find comfort in the fact that, taken together, we know more and more.
- J. Robert Oppenheimer, "Science And The Common Understanding"

Except tEmP theorists know less and less, as time goes on.

" Our progress is narrow" until someone upsets the apple cart.

Ptolemy did it. Now Spring-And-Loop Theory has done it.

#098

Statistics has been the handmaid of science, and has poured a flood of light upon the dark questions of famine and pestilence, ignorance and crime, disease and death.
- James Abram Garfield (1831-1881)

Science needs a heck of a lot more than statistics.

Theories are first, foremost and for always.

Statistics reinforce whatever you want them to reinforce.


tEmP theories are full of famine and pestilence, ignorance and crime, disease and...darkness.

Famine? When you take away truth (like the ether) then good theories wilt and die.

Pestilence? Merriam-Webster says pestilence is "a contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating". Every physicist these days is infected with "there is no ether but there is dark (i.e. unknown) stuff". Pathetic.

Ignorance? Physics today is the blind leading the blind.

Crime? The LHC getting $5,000,000,000 a year is high crime.

Disease? Wiki says "A disease is any condition which results in the disorder of a structure or function". Quantum Broken Mechanics says there is literally disorder at the quantum level.


Back to the quote...
Statistics, being the handmaid, are enabling tEmP theories to achieve new levels of ignorance.

tEmP theorists are drowning in data, and bereft of truth.

Statistics are blind. A good theory, like Spring-And-Loop Theory, is blinding.

#099

A discovery is an unforeseen relation not included in theory.
- Claude Bernard (1813-1878)

Spring-And-Loop Theory is a re-discovery of the ether.

Combined with Planck's realization about the Planck scale.

And the removal of pretty all new physics after Einstein.

#100

A fact is like a sack which won't stand up if it's empty. In order that it may stand up, one has to put into it the reason and sentiment which caused it to exist.

#101

A few drops of science will often disinfect
an entire barrel of ignorance and prejudice.

- Hendrik Willem van Loon

If given a chance.

But what new theory is given a chance these days?

Doing that would be a disaster for tEmP theories.

The old guard.

The 1% of science.

#102

A man's own addition to what he learns
is cement to bind an otherwise loose heap of stones
into a structure of unity, strength, and use.

- George Iles

Stones + cement .DE. unity .OR. strength.

But it does equal use.

Absent a good model or a sound theory, one is more likely to use cement and stones to build a rat's nest.

#103

A new theory is guilty until proven innocent, and the pre-existing theory innocent until proven guilty.
- David Malcolm Raup

#104

A person must have a certain amount of intelligent ignorance to get anywhere.
- Charles Franklin Kettering (1876-1958)

True.

To be able to think anew on something old and "solved", Was must let go.

Spring-And-Loop Theory let go of tEmP theories.

#105

A scientist has to be neutral in his search for the truth, but he cannot be neutral as to the use of that truth when found. If you know more than other people, you have more responsibility, rather than less.
- C.P. Snow

tEmP theorists are as biased as bias gets.

#106

A theory is scientific only if it can be disproved.
But the moment you try to cover absolutely everything
the chances are that you cover nothing.

- Hermann Bondi (1919-2005)

Who the heck started this "only if it can be disproved" metric?

It smells funny.

A theory has some potential value to the extent that it remains 'not disproved'. Which is not the same thing as what Bondi states here.


That is all one can say in a general way about theories.

Might be valuable.

The "scientific only if it can be disproved" thing sounds like a label the power brokers can slap on anything they are worried about.


There are plenty of highly scientific things that it will never be possible to prove or disprove.

With the real foundation being Planck sized, modelling will be essential to test anything.

The better you replicate results, the more valuable your model. Period.


tEmP theories have gargantuan sized problems.

They have been disproved.

But are still used.

#107

A theory which cannot be mortally endangered cannot be alive.
- William Albert Hugh Rushton

Others have said this better, and probably before you.

tEmP theories are mortally endangered and it means nothing.

Faith, belief and fanaticism keep them alive.

#111

Adversity is a severe instructor. He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper. This conflict with difficulty makes us acquainted with our object and compels us to consider it in all its relations. It will not suffer us to be superficial.
- Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

Falsehoods are embedded in our life.

Removing them brings relief, and greater insight.

tEmP theories have been of enormous benefit to Spring-And-Loop Theory.

#112

All successful men have agreed to one thing -- they were causationists. They believed that things went not by luck, but by law; that there was not a weak nor a cracked link in the chain that joins the first and last of things.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring-And-Loop Theory has no weak nor cracked links. Just like anti-fluoridationists, anti-vacciners and anti-meat-eaters.

We lack the bully pulpit, but that is a good thing.

If the mainstream propaganda orifices can be shut up, everyone will soon be getting to the cause of things.

#114

Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience
it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence
with experience and proceed to investigate the reason.

- Leonardo da Vinci

A theory or model must always be the goal or endpoint of science.

#115

An engineer's invention causes things to come into existence from ideas, making the world conform to thought; whereas science, by deriving ideas from observation, makes thought conform to existence.
- Carl Mitcham

#116

An invention that is quickly accepted will turn out to be a rather trivial alteration of something that has already existed.
- Edwin Herbert Land

An idea never accepted is an idea trying to spread truth in the face of an avalanche of FUD, lies and deception.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is such an idea, and it would be an absolute disaster for the LHC, particle smashers in general and physics know-it-all-know-nothings in particular.

Spring-And-Loop Theory's biggest fault?

It is far too simple, far too extensible and it commits the cardinal sin of unifying physics.

All burn-at-the-stake offences.

Just ask President Trump.

#117

At no period of Michael Faraday's unmatched career was he interested in utility. He was absorbed in disentangling the riddles of the universe, at first chemical riddles, in later periods, physical riddles. As far as he cared, the question of utility was never raised. Any suspicion of utility would have restricted his restless curiosity. In the end, utility resulted, but it was never a criterion to which his ceaseless experimentation could be subjected.
- Abraham Flexner (1866-1959)

Utility -- functionality -- is an essential part of the good things of life.

If you want non-utility, read a novel or go to a Gilbert & Sullivan play.

Theories have to be utilitarian, and the best theories are the most utilitarian -- bringing the greatest good to the greatest number.

Wiki says Abraham Flexner was an "educator".

If any field involves utility, it is teaching.

How could this guy get this so far wrong?

#118

Chance throws peculiar conditions in everyone's way.
If we apply intelligence, patience and special vision,
we are rewarded with new creative breakthroughs.

- Walter Bradford Cannon

#119

Common sense has the very curious property of being more correct retrospectively than prospectively. One of the principal criteria to be applied to successful science is that its results are almost always obvious retrospectively; unfortunately, they seldom are prospectively. Common sense provides a kind of ultimate validation after science has completed its work; it seldom anticipates what science is going to discover.
- Russell Lincoln Ackoff

In essence, common sense can see the value of a new better thing
after it has been created, rather than before.

This is true for the science that is healthy and progressing.

However, when science is as badly confused and lost as tEmP theories are today, then it is only common sense that is correct before the next great thing.

Common sense always has "the Emperor is wearing no clothes!" ready.

Computers and rocket ships are examples of invention, not understanding. All that is needed to build machines is the knowledge that when one thing happens, another thing happens as a result. It's an accumulation of simple patterns. A dog can learn patterns. There is no 'why' in those examples. We don't understand why electricity travels. We don't know why light travels at a constant speed forever. All we can do is observe and record patterns.
- Scott Adams

This quote is all over the place.

The first sentence is an insult to inventors and engineers because it trivializes the pinnacle products of those professions.

Without any good reason for doing so.


The second sentence is an even bigger insult of those progressions, but begins to show even more how little Scott Adams understands about the design and engineering processes.

Despite "working closely with telecommunications engineers" ...at a bank. [Wiki]

The man doesn't know what he doesn't know, and that's embarrassing.


"It's an accumulation of simple patterns." is a sentence built in the sky.

Based on nothing, yet still intent on insulting the most constructive professions in all of science.

No idea why Scott is being so dismissive but Occam's Razor says it is because Scott Adams isn't very scientific.


"A dog can learn patterns."

Yes, we have reached this point.

Following Scott Adams' logic, we haved learned that computers and rocket ships could be built...by dogs.

Isn't it amazing how we exalt people...who aren't worth it?


Back to the quote to see how much deeper Scott can dig himself...
"There is no 'why' in those examples."

Says who beside you, Scott?

The guy who doesn't see the ten or one hundred thousands 'whys' behind ultra sophisticated products says there are no 'whys'.

There are no words for you on this one, Scott.


"We don't understand why electricity travels."
"We don't know why light travels at a constant speed forever."

Wow, two actually true observations that highlight the deficiencies in tEmP theories.

Answered in Spring-And-Loop Theory's original paper and first COASALT talk but still, slightly redeeming you, Scott.


"All we can do is observe and record patterns."

Back to the insults.

It's a wonder Scott doesn't talk about voodoo dolls and ritual sacrifice.


Spring-And-Loop Theory addresses the core weaknesses of tEmP theories.

That Scott Adams was flailing to describe above.

What Adams completely misses is that physics today is deliberately wrong.


Spring-And-Loop Theory, by having a correct theory, built on basics, and sound modelling, is a theory that allows one to understand everything.


This is so far superior to mere observing and recording that each is more like an endpoint.

Ancient man observed and recorded.

21st century man can completely understand.


By the way, there was never any need to run down computing and aeronautics, Scott.

Feel free to explain yourself but it doesn't look good for you.

As a techie cartoonist and all.

Don't bite my finger. Look where it is pointing.

Amazing how hard it is to get people to do this.

Broken people are like stray dogs.

Biting the hand that feeds them.

#123

Every writer must reconcile the conflicting claims of consistency and variety, of rigor in detail and elegance in the whole.
- Julian Lowell Coolidge, mathematician

"Variety" has no place in the sciences, and should be applied more to works of fiction, like tEmP theories.

While we're at it, rigor and elegance do not have to be opposites.

Elegance invariably comes from simplicity, and it is easier to be rigorous with a simple theory.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is elegant, and rigorous, and consistent.

But uninterested in the word "variety".

#124

Facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts do not go away while scientists debate rival theories for explaining them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's, but apples did not suspend themselves in mid-air pending the outcome.
- Stephen Jay Gould

It is good to keep facts and theories as two distinct entities.

Interesting that the most vaunted parts of the Standard Model -- the QxD hacks -- are quite broken and useless, and only survive by copy/pasting the "right answers" into the equations.

Thereby mixing data and theory. Theory suicide.


Back to the quote...
Einstein's theory of gravitation didn't replace Newton's theory of gravitation.

It has different origins, uses different assumptions, introduces new complexities and -- with great effort -- can be simplified to resemble Newton's gravitational equation.

But Einstein's theory of gravity is quite broken, being incapable of predicting star rotational paths. For just one example.

It is just another (broken) gravity theory. Like Newton's.

#125

Facts are of not much use as just facts. They bewilder by their number and their apparent incoherency. Let them be digested into theory, however, and brought into mutual harmony, and it is another matter.
- Oliver Heaviside

#126

Facts do not speak.
- Henri Poincare

Nor do they need to.

Theories speak volumes.

Models throw in a song and dance.

What matters is, are they talking sense, or gibberish?

#127

First a new theory is attacked as absurd; then it is admitted to be true, but obvious and insignificant; finally it is seen to be so important that its adversaries claim that they themselves discovered it.
- William James (1842-1910)

Spring-And-Loop Theory is at an earlier stage than "one".

Stage zero: ignore it, everywhere.

The best way to kill an idea is to stop its implantation in another's mind.

THIS is the purpose of censorship.

#128

First get a clear notion of what you desire to accomplish and then in all probability you will succeed in doing it.
- Henry Maudslay

Certainly defining the problem is half the effort.

For Spring-And-Loop Theory it was realizing that spooky action at a distance made no sense and resolving to figure out what must be going on at the lowest level.

By the way, wanting to really badly is not nearly enough.

One must have the quality of mind capable of doing what one desires.

And one must start it in the right season of time.

#129

First they ignore you,
then they laugh at you,
then they fight you,
then you win.

- Mohandas Karamchand [Mahatma] Gandhi (1869-1948)

You might have to work at it for years.

And almost starve yourself to death.

Several times.

But, yeah, those might be the steps.

Unless they jump to the 'assassinate you' stage.

#130

Good design is not an applied veneer.
- Raymond Loewy

General Relativity is a gravity veneer to Special Relativity.

Special Relativity has no connection with any part of our universe.

And so Relativity is a badly designed theory.

No wonder it breaks and no wonder it can't be extended.

#131

Good theories are the arch enemy of better theories.
- Floyd Maxwell (1957-)

#132

Great inventions are never, and great discoveries are seldom, the work of any one mind. Every great invention is really an aggregation of minor inventions, or the final step of a progression. It is not usually a creation, but a growth, as truly so as is the growth of the trees in the forest.
- Robert H. Thurston

Yes.

Of course.

Now what have you accomplished by saying this?

#133

He who designs an unsafe theory or an inoperative theory is a bad physicist; he who designs them so that they are safe and operative, but needlessly expensive, is a poor physicist, and he who does the best work at lowest cost sooner or later stands at the top of his profession but in the short term will be persecuted relentlessly.
- Henry R. Towne, channeling Spring-And-Loop Theory

#134

However far modern science and techniques have fallen short of their inherent possibilities, they have taught mankind at least one lesson: Nothing is impossible.
- Lewis Mumford, "Technics And Civilization"

The general public is always bought off with "Look what we have done! We went to the moon!"

So we pony up tens of billions of dollars every year.

For absolutely nothing.

Actually much worse than nothing.

We are paying for our increased ignorance,
and paving the way for further fleecings.

Lewis = 5-9-5. The 5 is the most naive.

#135

I have not been able to discover the cause of those properties of gravity from phenomena, and I frame no hypotheses; for whatever is not deduced from the phenomena is to be called a hypothesis, and hypotheses, whether metaphysical or physical, whether of occult qualities or mechanical, have no place in experimental philosophy.
- Isaac Newton

"Framing no hypothesis" has proven to be a disaster, allowing tEmP theorists to spray graffiti over the entire physics landscape.

James Clerk Maxwell made a similar mistake -- discarding his best-so-far model because it was "speculative".

Spring-And-Loop Theory has framed a better hypothesis, and minimally speculated. Prove it wrong, or take a selfie with me.

#136

I am too much of a sceptic to deny the possibility of anything.
- Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895)

This is an important point.

A good skeptic is one who is the most open-minded.

In that sense, Spring-And-Loop Theory's author was (and is) the most skeptical of physics theorists.

#137

I cannot be contented to view this wonderful universe, and especially the nature of man, and to conclude that everything is the result of brute force. I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws, with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of what we call chance.
- Charles Darwin

Everything in this universe is forced.

And that "chance" is better labeled probability.

By the way, brute force is only a drawback when there is a better way.

Nature tends to take the best way.

#138

I consider that I understand an equation when I can predict the properties of its solutions, without actually solving it.
- Paul A. M. Dirac

Spring-And-Loop Theory can do the same thing, only without equations.

THIS is the sign of a truly revolutionary theory.

Dirac, ever the mathematician, had little concern for the real world.

#139

I reject Bohr's standpoint that a space-time description is impossible. Physics does not consist only of atomic research, science does not consist only of physics, and life does not consist only of science. The aim of atomic research is to fit our empirical knowledge concerning it into our other thinking. All of this other thinking, so far as it concerns the outer world, is active in space and time. If it cannot be fitted into space and time, then it fails in its whole aim and one does not know what purpose it really serves.
- Erwin Schrodinger (1887-1961)

Spring-And-Loop Theory rejects it as well.

Feynman was the most overrated physicist, implanting (incorrect) absolutes in a vast swatch of humanity.

Bohr was just a blowhard -- in the way of better physics, and fatalistic apparently.

#140

If you do not agree with the prevalent point of view, be ready to explain why.

Unless what you're offering is better.

In that case, prepare to be ignored.

#141

In chemistry, our theories are crutches; to show that they are valid, they must be used to walk. A theory established with the help of twenty facts must explain thirty, and lead to the discovery of ten more.
- Jean-Baptiste-Andre Dumas

It is obvious that theories must be used.

That doesn't make them crutches. It makes them tools.

As to 20, 30 & 10 -- arbitrary numbers that make this quote even worse.

#142

In completing one discovery we get an imperfect knowledge of others.
- Joseph Priestley

That is fatalistic without reason.

In completing one discovery we gain a better understanding of others.

#143

In the final, positive, state, the mind has given over the vain search after absolute notions, the origin and destination of the universe, and the causes of phenomena, and applies itself to the study of their laws -- that is, their invariable relations of succession and resemblance. Reasoning and observation, duly combined, are the means of this knowledge. What is now understood when we speak of an explanation of facts is simply the establishment of a connection between single phenomena and general facts.
- Isidore Auguste Marie Francois Xavier Comte, "The Positive Philosophy"

Spring-And-Loop Theory has no need for such fatalism, having figured out the fundamental underlying components and structure of the universe.

#144

Individual curiosity, often working without practical ends in mind, has always been a driving force for innovation.
- Frederick Seitz

#145

It can hardly be pressed forcibly enough on the attention of the student of nature, that there is scarcely any natural phenomenon which can be fully and completely explained, in all its circumstances, without a union of several, if not all, the sciences.

#146

It is always easier to do things the same old way...why change? To fight this, keep your dissatisfaction index high and break with tradition.
- Nathaniel Wyeth

It is better to hold a well-understood and intelligible opinion, even if it should turn out to be wrong, than to be content with a muddle-headed mixture of conflicting views, sometimes miscalled impartiality, and often no better than no opinion at all.
- William Bayliss, "Principles Of General Physiology"

Translation: Spring-And-Loop Theory is better than the Standard Model.

#148

As the births of living creatures are ill-shapen, so are all innovations.
- Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

If you judged a butterfly by the grub, yes.

The point is that a true innovation has life at its heart.

An acorn in a field full of dead wood eventually becomes a mighty oak tree;
a better fundamental model becomes a beautiful butterfly of a theory.

Always.

Eventually.

#149

It is not so difficult a task to plant new truths, as to root out old errors.
- Charles Caleb Colton

And unfortunately falsehoods plant just as easily as truths.

In any case Spring-And-Loop Theory has done the root outing for you.

#150

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought
without accepting it.

- Aristotle (384-322 BC)

Can you the reader entertain the possibility that Spring-And-Loop Theory is a better foundation to model the Universe with than any other theory?

#151

It is very different to make a practical system and to introduce it. A few experiments in the laboratory would prove the practicability of system long before it could be brought into general use. You can take a pipe and put a little coal in it, close it up, heat it and light the gas that comes out of the stem, but that is not introducing gas lighting. I'll bet that if it were discovered tomorrow in New York that gas could be made out of coal it would be at least five years before the system would be in general use.
- Thomas Edison

#152

It's hardly possible to overstate the value, in the present state of human improvement, of placing human beings in contact with other persons dissimilar to themselves, and with modes of thought and action unlike those with which they are familiar. Such communication has always been one of the primary sources of progress.
- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

This is why Spring-And-Loop Theory is constantly reading the pulp fiction of tEmP theories.

#153

Knowledge once gained casts a faint light beyond its own immediate boundaries. There is no discovery so limited as not to illuminate something beyond itself.
- John Tyndall

This is true in the extreme of Spring-And-Loop Theory.

There have been dozens of consequential realizations.

Thanks, tEmP theories, for sucking so bad.

#154

Later scientific theories are better than earlier ones for solving puzzles in the often quite different environments to which they are applied.
- Thomas S. Kuhn

Aikido is a better martial arts -- for everyday people, not MMA fighters -- in part because it is the newest.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is the best model and theory of physics in part because it is the newest.

#155

Long intervals frequently elapse between the discovery of new principles in science and their practical application. Those intellectual qualifications that give birth to new principles or to new methods are of quite a different order from those that are necessary for their practical application.
- Charles Babbage, "Reflections On The Decline Of Science In England", 1830

One has to be able to step through each aspect of the existing dogma, rejecting or at least questioning each in turn.

And when one finds a questionable assumption or statement, one must then...somehow...find a better alternative.

Not only is this mentally difficult on these two levels, but it must be done in a vacuum. Or worse, a directly opposing environment.

Finally, having found something better, there is the inertia, cynicism, and know-it-all-know-nothing resistance that must push back against.

For months, years and even decades.


Tesla is one of the few who passed all these steps.

His reward was to be taken advantage of in business deals.

To be used as the repairman to fix his competitor's broken equipment.

Finally to retire in exile, alone but for his pigeons.

What kind of person can do all that?

What kind indeed.

#156

Look around, when you have got your first mushroom or made your first discovery. They grow in clusters.
- George Polya

#157

Modern physics has changed nothing in the great classical disciplines of, for instance, mechanics, optics, and heat. Only the conception of hitherto unexplored regions, formed prematurely from a knowledge of only certain parts of the world, has undergone a decisive transformation also not changed. Instead there have been a steady stream of additions, hacks and kludges. In time, each of these has become accepted as an explanation in itself.
- Werner Heisenberg, with the help of the green text super hero

This is why Spring-And-Loop Theory is at once in harmony with much of physics, and completely at odds with the core assumptions of tEmP theories.

#158

Most advances in science come when a person for one reason or another is forced to change fields. Viewing a new field with fresh eyes, and bringing prior knowledge, results in creativity.
- Peter Borden

My background, for example, is chemical engineering.

A highly related field.

Noteworthy, by the way, for having a much better low-level model.

Andy Grove, the CEO of Intel, was also a chemical engineer.


Other Multiple Field People:

Isaac Newton was a jack of all trades -- alchemist (i.e. chemist), mathematician (inventor of calculus) and physicist.

Einstein was a patent clerk first, and one of the better philosophers after, his trip through the physics world.

Henri Poincare was a "mathematician, theoretical physicist, engineer and philosopher of science".

Gottfried_Wilhelm_Leibniz was a polymath, philosopher and historian of both mathematics and philosophy. [Wiki]

Max Planck first studied astronomy, mechanics and mathematics.


Those five people were not chosen arbitrarily.

They are perhaps the most significant people in physics.

Yet all either did other things first, or were equally talented in other fields.

No victor believes in chance.

Spring-And-Loop Theory does not believe in chance.

#160

Nonconformity is the highest evolutionary attainment of social animals.
- Aldo Leopold, "A Man's Leisure Time"

Childish nonconformity is to say no to everything.

One-year-olds, and teenagers, do this.

Thanks to decades of brainwashing, and the introduction of such nonsense as "politically correct" thinking, nonconformity with what is wrong or stupid is much more rare.

Develop it, and Spring-And-Loop Theory will come into focus for you.

On graduating from school, a studious young man who would withstand the tedium and monotony of his duties has no choice but to lose himself in some branch of science or literature completely irrelevant to his assignment.

One gram of suspicion weighs heavier than a kilo of truth!
- Mehmet Murat ildan

Not everything that is observable and measurable is predictable,
no matter how complete our past observations may have been.

The aims of pure basic science, unlike those of applied science, are neither fast-flowing nor pragmatic. The quick harvest of applied science is the usable process, the medicine, the machine. The shy fruit of pure science is understanding.

tEmP theorists do not understand how little they understand.

Nor do they care.

The money flows in, regardless.

#170

The argument seemed sound enough,
but when a theory collides with a fact,
the result is tragedy.

- Louis Nizer, a noted trial lawyer

#171

The day when the scientist, no matter how devoted, may make significant progress alone and without material help is past. This fact is most self-evident in our work. Instead of an attic with a few test tubes, bits of wire and odds and ends, the attack on the atomic nucleus has required the development and construction of great instruments on an engineering scale.
- Ernest Orlando Lawrence, inventor of the cyclotron

If physics was getting better (i.e. simpler), this might be true.

Instead the physics hydra keeps sprouting heads.

The cure for that is one brave or foolish individual.


As to great instruments and such, that all boils down to results.

That get published, and can be read.

By one individual.

The end depends upon the beginning.
- "The Emperor's Club"

Assumptions are indeed everything.

The mathematics is not there until we put it there.
- Arthur Eddington

Spring-And-Loop Theory has been very sparing with the math putting.

Thank goodness.

#174

The natural scientists of the previous age knew less than we do and believed they were very close to the goal. We have taken very great steps in its direction and now discover we are still very far away from it. With the most rational philosophers an increase in their knowledge is always attended by an increased conviction of their ignorance.
- Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)

Prior to relativity, physicists knew a lot and were closing in on the rest.

Since relativity, physics has diverged from the truth.

No wonder tEmP theorists are increasingly found in the weeds.

Once we get back on the path, let's only move forward with a better model.

Ok?

#175

The rules of scientific investigation always require us, when we enter the domains of conjecture, to adopt that hypothesis by which the greatest number of known facts and phenomena may be reconciled.
- Matthew Fontaine Maury

Einstein later reiterated this point.

Sadly, tEmP theorists didn't listen and are, today, a million miles from this.

But a lot richer, which is good for them, right?

Thought experiment is in any case a necessary precondition for physical experiment. Every experimenter and inventor must have the planned arrangement in his head before translating it into fact.
- Ernst Mach (1838-1916)

We think of Albert Einstein as Mr. Thought Experiment but Ernst Mach lived forty years before him.


Back to the quote...
The great minds all put it together in their head first.

Henri Poincare in physics. Beethoven in music.

I never did a single experiment before conceiving of Spring-And-Loop Theory.

Experiments these days are really just about the money.

#182

To come very near to a true theory, and to grasp its precise application, are two different things, as the history of science teaches us. Everything of importance has been said before by someone who did not discover it.
- Alfred North Whitehead, mathematician and philosopher

James Clerk Maxwell came so very close with his model.

He had it "in the bag".

Then discarded it because it was just a "speculation".


Spring-And-Loop Theory came out as a series of clear true theories.

The importance of each realization grasped at the time.

This notion, however, that "everything has been said before" is at best simply wrong, and at worst high fatalistic.

Pierre was for the first time at this meeting impressed by the endless multiplicity of men's minds, which leads to no truth being ever seen by two persons alike. What Pierre chiefly desired was always to transmit his thought to another exactly as he conceived it himself.

The same truth can be seen by many.

(1) Go to the basics of the subject.

2+2.......=4 is seen the same way by everyone. It is usually seen as 2+2=4.

All the numbers and symbols right next to each other. The truth incorporated so that we no longer realize there is a truth in there. It becomes just a statement. But it is also a truth.

(2) Rediscover the truths all around you.

Roses are colorful, often fragrant, always beautiful.

More truths rediscovered.

(3) Reexamine and discard your own apathies.

Look at LEGO or Tetris blocks. Just a handful of basic shapes. Plain. Boring.

Yet staggering what can be created with them.

(4) Realize that #1 is the key to everything.

And is tied to assumptions.

A man who is not born with the novel-writing gift has a troublesome time of it when he tries to build a novel. I know this from experience. He has no clear idea of his story; in fact he has no story. He merely has some people in his mind, and an incident or two, also a locality, and he trusts he can plunge those people into those incidents with interesting results. So he goes to work. To write a novel? No -- that is a thought which comes later; in the beginning he is only proposing to tell a little tale, a very little tale, a six-page tale. But as it is a tale which he is not acquainted with, and can only find out what it is by listening as it goes along telling itself, it is more than apt to go on and on and on till it spreads itself into a book. I know about this, because it has happened to me so many times.
- Samuel Langhorne Clemens [Mark Twain] (1835-1910)

tEmP theories are assembled the same way.

Tire patches and roof repairs as well.

#201

Thomas Kuhn, in "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions", popularized the use of the word 'paradigm'. He said science does not progress via a linear accumulation of new knowledge, but undergoes periodic revolutions, also called "paradigm shifts".

Spring-And-Loop Theory is a new paradigm.

Based on an old paradigm.

Updated with Planck's scale.

And used to correct tEmP theories.

#202

When a writer first starts out, he gets a big kick from the stuff he does, and the reader doesn't get any; then, after a while, the writer gets a little kick and the reader gets a little kick; and finally, if the writer's any good, he doesn't get any kick at all and the reader gets everything.
- Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899-1961)

#203

The vast majority of human beings dislike and even actually dread all notions with which they are not familiar. Hence it comes about that at their first appearance innovators have generally been persecuted, and always derided as fools and madmen.
- Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894-1963)

The innovations of innovators are not first shown to everyone.

They are shown to the priesthood. The cabal. The powers that be.

Should the innovation be a threat to them (i.e. good), they will respond with extreme skepticism and aggressively defend their position.

The average response of "the vast majority of human beings" to a new innovation is "Cool!".

#204

An achievement is a bondage. It obliges one to a higher achievement.
- Albert Camus (1913-1960), journalist

Wrong.

This is like saying "Getting a perfect score on a test paper is a bondage."

Tripe like this keeps getting passed off as journalism.


Spring-And-Loop Theory could use a new "can't be solved" problem.

Seriously, if anyone can help me out on this, that would be great.

I want the obligation. Good people always do.

#205

Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.
- Albert Camus (1913-1960)

Wait, how does "culture" imply "freedom"?

More weird journalist-tries-to-be-philosopher nonsense.

#206

Beauty does not make revolutions but a day will come when revolutions will have need of beauty.
- Albert Camus (1913-1960)

Beauty does make revolutions.

Beauty in this context is "something better than what we have under this oppression".

All constructive revolutions are pursuits of beauty.

#207

All physical theories, their mathematical expression notwithstanding,
ought to lend themselves to so simple a description that even a child
could understand it.

- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Spring-And-Loop Theory does this.

And doesn't need the "mathematical expression notwithstanding" disclaimer.

Almost anti-climatic isn't it.

#208

The working theoretical physicist is not to be envied because Mother Nature, or more precisely an experiment, is a resolute and seldom friendly referee of his work. She never says "yes" to a theory, but only "maybe" under the best of circumstances, and in most cases simply "no". If an experiment verifies a theory, it is still a "maybe"; if it doesn't, it is a "no".
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

A "maybe" ain't much. A hundred "maybe's" = close enough for mere mortals.

Spring-And-Loop Theory's author won't wait for Mother Nature's sanction.

Those wanting to join a true physics revolution should get their ticket now.

#209

I have hardly come to know the wretchedness of mankind better than as a result of this theory and everything connected to it. But it doesn't bother me.
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Physics theories matter.

Answers matter.

Hence they are battlegrounds.

#210

It is difficult to describe paths of thought where there are already many paths laid down, and not fall into one of the grooves.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)

Spring-And-Loop Theory runs into this regularly.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is NOT a theory of the electric universe, nor of circlons nor tachyons.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is anti big bang, anti inflation, anti dark matter, anti dark energy and anti quark.


Spring-And-Loop Theory is a one man show.

In harmony with the core thoughts of Newton, Poincare and Maxwell.

And Einstein...on even-numbered days.

#211

The goal of a scientist is to find an interesting problem,
and live off it for a while.
The goal of an engineer is to evade interesting problems.

- Vadim Antonov

You saying that going to the moon isn't interesting, Vadim?

The correct word is not "evade" but resolve.

Warning: when things are resolved, money trains go away.

#212

Getting hold of the difficulty deep down is what is hard. If it is grasped near the surface it simply remains the difficulty it was. It has to be pulled out by the roots; and that involves our beginning to think about these things in a new way. The new way of thinking is what is so hard to establish. Once the new way of thinking has been established, the old problems vanish; indeed they become hard to recapture. They go with our way of expressing ourselves and, if we clothe ourselves in a new form of expression, the old problems are discarded along with the old garment.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)

Roots.

Foundations.

Assumptions.

#213

When I was research head of General Motors and wanted a problem solved, I'd place a table outside the meeting room with a sign: "Leave slide rules here". If I didn't do that, I'd find someone reaching for his slide rule. Then he'd be on his feet saying, "Boss, you can't do it."
- Charles Franklin Kettering (1876-1958)

Today that sign would say "Leave cell phones here".

#214

The price of progress is trouble, and I don't think the price is too high.
- Charles Franklin Kettering (1876-1958)

The most confident number is the 8.

The number least concerned about conflict is the 5.

"Charles Franklin Kettering" = 8-9-8 total, 8-destiny.

His birthday on Aug 29, 1876 -- 8 2 4 = 5.


Spring-And-Loop Theory's author? An 8 under a 5.

#215

It's amazing what ordinary people can do
if they set out without preconceived notions.

- Charles Franklin Kettering (1876-1958)

A lack of assumptions

is better than

wrong assumptions.

#216

To discover to the world something which deeply concerns it, and of which it was previously ignorant; to prove to it that it had been mistaken on some vital point of temporal or spiritual interest, is as important a service as a human being can render to his fellow creatures.
- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

#217

All conundrums, all apparent riddles, paradoxes and contradictions subsist only in the split-mind based on subject-object relationship. They resolve themselves as soon as they are seen from the viewpoint of Totality.
- Ramesh S. Balsekar (1917-2009)

That is why Spring-And-Loop Theory is a clarifying lens.

The ultimate clarifying lens.

Because it is unified. And sees the totality.

#218

Behind every great accomplishment, there is an even greater opportunity.
- Michelle Ustaszeski

Like 8ish people, 1ish people get this. The rest, not so much.

"Michelle Ustaszeski" 1-9-1 total, 1-destiny.

#219

If we are to achieve things never before accomplished
we must employ methods never before attempted.

- Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

Spring-And-Loop Theory did this when it tried the ether method.

#220

An idea that is not dangerous is not worthy of being called an idea.
- Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900)

Spring-And-Loop Theory is dangerous to the powers that be in physics.

#221

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this -- you haven't.
- Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931)

#222

Be not deceived with the first appearance of things, for show is not substance.
- English saying

#223

When everyone is against you,
it means you are absolutely wrong.
Or you are absolutely right.

- Albert Guinon

Decide for yourself about Spring-And-Loop Theory.

100% wrong seems a bit extreme, but could be true.

Or...

#224

Just as a tree bears the same fruit year after year and at the same time fruit that is new each year, so must all permanently valuable ideas be continually created anew in thought. But our age pretends to make a sterile tree bear fruit by tying fruits of truth onto its branches.
- Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

I don't know about "created anew". Reenergized from time to time? Yes.

That second sentence is exactly what tEmP theories did with QxD.

Exactly what they did.

#225

It's not that we need new ideas but we need to stop having old ideas.
- Edwin Land (May 7, 1909-1991)

In physics we needed new ideas.

Which turned out to be old ideas.

Meet Spring-And-Loop Theory...

...same as the old boss.

When you're this big, they call you ether.

#226

The longer I live the more I see that I am never wrong about anything,
and that all the pains that I have so humbly taken to verify my notions
have only wasted my time.

- George Bernard Shaw

I've reached the same age.

Spring-And-Loop Theory is right.

Period.

#227

A matter that becomes clear ceases to concern us.
- Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900)

One of the biggest failings of human nature.

Failure to keep appreciating all the good stuff.

Like cops. Republicans. And walls.

#228

The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say 'no' to almost everything."
- Warren Edward Buffett (1930-)

Spring-And-Loop Theory came into being because its author said no to almost every existing physics theory.

#229

Great people are great because they solve countless, seemingly unsolvable problems. You can too if you choose.
- Mark Victor Hansen (1948-)

#230

Whence arises all that order and beauty we see in the world?
- Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

From an underlying order.

The whole system is built on order.

Only freedom-of-choice man is the chaos creator.

#231

Engineering is ultimately about doubt; if you knew what you were doing, it would be manufacturing.
- Michael Collins

Both of your definitions are wrong.

And you seem to think manufacturing is more impressive than engineering.


tEmP theories are about doubt.

Engineering is about degree of precision. The removal of doubt.

And manufacturing is about "close enough for the target market."

#232

Each problem that I solved became a rule which served afterwards to solve other problems.
- Rene Descartes (1596-1650), mathematician

Mathematicians want rules.

And to build in stages.

Fine for brick walls I guess.

#233

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life, as far as possible, doubt all things.
- Rene Descartes (1596-1650)

tEmP theorists have mastered the submersion of doubt.

Kinda like Democrats.

#234

I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed.
- Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856-1915)

Some of the obstacles Spring-And-Loop Theory had to overcome:
- one hundred years of relativity
- one hundred years of "no ether"
- fifty years of quarks
- fifty years of "four" forces
- one hundred years of 'atoms'
- seventy five years of the quantum mechanics non-solution

Then came the arrogance, hostility and complete indifference of people in the field when presented with Spring-And-Loop Theory.

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of my theory.

#235

Under the comb, the tangle and the straight path are the same.
- Heraclitus (540-475 BC)

Cute, but non-sensical.

Straight path combs out without issue.

Knot rips out hair, or progresses to the deknotting.

#236

You are the person who has to decide.
Whether you'll do it or toss it aside;
You are the person who makes up your mind.
Whether you'll lead or will linger behind.
Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar.
Or just be contented to stay where you are.

- Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959)

#237

Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.
- Robert Francis Kennedy (1925-1968)

An interesting quote.

Especially in the time of Q Anon.

#238

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
- Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

#239

A person willing to fly in the face of reason, authority, and common sense must be a person of considerable self-assurance. Since he occurs only rarely, he must seem eccentric (in at least that respect) to the rest of us. A person eccentric in one respect is often eccentric in others. Consequently, the person who is most likely to get new ideas is a person of good background in the field of interest and one who is unconventional in his habits. (To be a crackpot is not, however, enough in itself.)
- Isaac Asimov

#240

A theory must be tempered with reality.
- Jawaharlal Nehru

Self-evident.

Except to tEmP theorists.

#241

The wild dream is the first step to reality.
- Norman Cousins (1915-1990)

Dreams leading to reality. Interesting.

JFK wrote about The American Dream.

Just saying.

#242

Building software is like building a bridge by
carefully stacking atoms one on top of the other.

- Sam Kass

Wrong, for both.

Each involves designing the components needed for the final product.

Cement trucks were designed. Software functions are also.

"Sam Kass" = 2-9-2. The polar opposite of a designer.

#243

You shouldn't need to install simple programs to run them. You shouldn't need to reboot to install simple programs. You shouldn't need to reboot to change settings. You shouldn't need to reboot.
- Sam Kass

More edicts from someone who knows little.

One other thing about the 2.

The laziest of the 9 numbers.

#244

Discoveries are often made by not following instructions; by going off the main road; by trying the untried.
- Frank Tyger

Thanks, Captain Obvious.

#245

Fear fades when facts are faced.
- Frank Tyger

We live in a world controlled by fear.

Imagine what could be done without that control.

So, facts are the key. Truths are facts that are valuable.

#246

Progress is not created by contented people.
- Frank Tyger

The 5 is the most discontented number.

Frank 1-4-5. Tyger 5-7-3.

#247

The ultimate most holy form of theory is action.
- Nikos Kazantzakis

Nikos, what are you smoking?

#248

It is wonderful to be despised, if deep down we know we are right.
- Pierre Elliott Trudeau (1919-2000)

You were never right, PET.

And your son has managed to be worse than you.


Back to the quote...
Yes it is.

#249

It's just so strange to me that anyone would ever think that a work of art shouldn't be disturbing, or shouldn't be invasive. I mean, that's the property of a work of art, that's the arena of a work of art -- it's to disturb, it's to make you think, it's to make you feel. If my work didn't disturb people from time to time, it would be a failure in my eyes. It's meant to disturb, in a positive way.
- Richard Avedon

You have disturbing numbers, Richard.

Avedon 3-4-7 -- the crazy combination.

"Richard Avedon" 4-1-5 -- total discord.


Back to the quote...
There is nothing wrong with a new theory "disturbing" the existing order.

When there is no order in the existing order.

#250

Over the years I have discovered that ideas come through an intense desire for them; continually desiring, the mind becomes a watchtower on the lookout for incidents that may excite the imagination.
- Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977)

You have to want it.

Want to figure something out.

Spring-And-Loop Theory came from that want.

#251

Those who hear not the music think the dancers mad.

Dancers are fairly mad.

Adults behaving like children.

Who needs control from above when we dumb ourselves down?


Back to the quote...
The main obstacle to Spring-And-Loop Theory is that people aren't listening.

Mankind these days are like rats, always scrounging their next meal.

The desire to figure things out is only minimally present.

People learn about Zinc! or Copper! or Silver! or Coconut water! and they figure they have found Nirvana.

In reality, it is extremely rare to meet even one person that has figured out even a single truly important thing in life.

Everyone drinks fluoridated water, uses fluoride toothpaste, eats "some" meat, takes no senna for elimination, is bombarded by microwave radiation everywhere all day and...most importantly of all...is completely unaware that their name creates their nature, their birthdate determines what they would be best suited to do with their life and that the quality of time changes with each hour, each day, each month and each year.

Wake up and smell the control.

Educate yourself and see the conspiracies.

Balance your name so that you'll want to give a half shekel to your sanctuary.

#252

There is no limit to what a man can do or how far he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit.
- Robert Woodruff

Spring-And-Loop Theory does not exist to have its author "go" somewhere.

Spring-And-Loop Theory exists to stop billions of dollars a year from going to physics boondoggles.

The single thing Spring-And-Loop Theory's author requires is credit.

Otherwise, the theory can be co-opted.

#253

Don't confuse arrogance with chronic correctness.
- Steve Williams

I have no idea where Mr. Williams is trying to go with this quote.

Let's have a look at the word arrogant.

Arrogant: proud, haughty, lordly, insolent, overbearing, supercilious, disdainful, mean, showing scorn for inferiors. An assumed superiority or loftiness. Claiming for oneself of more consideration or importance than is warranted.
Spring-And-Loop Theory's author is not arrogant.

The key thing is that there is a large group of determined people lying their way into billions of dollars they haven't earned.

Spring-And-Loop Theory's author saves his worst thoughts for those who have done this deliberately.

The rest are just victims.

#254

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought. An accident meeting a prepared mind.
- Albert Szent-Gyorgi

A truth learned is a random bit of might be something that is looked upon with fresh eyes and no moral corruption.

#255

The essential point in running a risk is that the returns justify it.
- Isaac Asimov

Spring-And-Loop Theory thinks there are no risks.

There are simply advised, and ill-advised, actions.

Make your best effort. Pick your battles. Live for something.

#256

If you're going to walk on thin ice, you may as well dance.
- Ray Stumbaugh

Dancing, or more particularly light jogging, turns out to be
the very safest thing you can do on ice.

Light steps allow you to correct lightly when slippage occurs.

Heavy steps lead to heavy corrections that cause their own problems.


Back to the quote...
Unintentionally, Ray Stumbaugh has hit on a key to great discoveries.

Brainstorming. What ifs. Possibility thinking.

Not fantasy. Not Sci-Fi.

Options.


An example: When we hear that stars don't orbit the center of a galaxy as relativity/gravitational theory says it should, tEmP theorists say "there must be dark matter!"

Or, we could look at other options.

The most obvious is that our gravity model is wrong. Specifically, that some part of it needs to change in at least some situations.

It may be the formulas (i.e. the assumptions) are not right, or not applicable in all situations.

It may be our notions of what stars are is not right.

It may be that our notion of "space" is wrong.

Spoiler alert: all of these are true and have been covered in previous COASALT talks.

#257

Pay no attention to what the critics say. There has never been set up a statue in honor of a critic.
- Jean Sibelius

Critics are potentially very valuable to Spring-And-Loop Theory.

They are welcomed and encouraged.

Bring your A game. You're gonna need it.

#258

Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious and immature.
- Tom Robbins

True if you're trying to come up with a new sneaker design.

tEmP theorists only fit one of the six adjectives -- sober.

They know what they are doing, and it ain't good.

#259

In college, they started all physics problems with `assume a frictionless surface.' The difference between college and industry is that in college you spend all your time on the formulas and in industry you spend all your time on friction.
- Larry McVoy

Notice how no one spends any time on the assumptions.

#260

The idea doesn't have to be big. It just has to change the world.
- Hugh McCleod

#261

One person can make a very big difference. Most of the time, in fact, that's the only way very big differences ever get made.
- Rob Landley

#262

Necessity is the mother of the re-invented wheel.
- Charlie Gibbs

There is no necessity with tEmP theories.

Except to make money.

#263

Victories over ingrained patterns of thought are not won in a day or a year.
- Isaac Asimov, "The Naked Sun"

#264

There is no career mileage in being right.
- Paul Evans

Imagine the lunacy of this truism.

#265

Risk everything, or gain nothing.
- Geoffrey De Charny

There can be times where this is true.

Only BASE jumpers try to live this on a daily basis.

#266

Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.
- Isaac Asimov

Don't let your sense of being scientific prevent you from considering a new theory of physics.

#267

There has been opposition to every innovation in the history of man, with the possible exception of the sword.
- Benjamin Dana

#268

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.
- Henri Bergson

#269

Difference is all the mind's input devices can detect, and difference is in a sense all the mind is there to consider and respond to.
- Gregory Bateson (1904-1980)

So, we are not inherently good at "doing science" but rather at reacting.

Detecting differences, and being triggered by that.

Therefore what matters, for science and other constructive activities, is what comes after the triggered response.

#270

We find comfort among those who agree with us;
growth among those who don't.

- Frank A. Clark (1888-1962)

#271

There are probably few features of theoretical cosmology that could not be completely upset and rendered useless by new observational discoveries.
- Sir Hermann Bondi

Or by a new model.

#272

A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
- Walter Bagehot

We should differentiate the thought of "doing what seems impossible"
from "doing what people say you cannot do".

The former is always impressive.

The latter can be merely a youthful urge for disobedience.

#273

Happy is he who gets to know the reason for things.
- Virgil

#274

Don't let them tell you what to think, no matter how "different" your views may be in relation to the official line. If you are not different in this world of stunning uniformity, what on earth are you doing?
- David Icke (1952-)

#275

The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do.
- Henry Moore (1898-1986)

There is so much truth and wisdom in this advice.

The remainder of my life will involve the promotion of Spring-And-Loop Theory to the point it ultimately becomes the model of how the Universe works.

#276

As to great and commanding talents, they are the gift of Providence in some way unknown to us. They rise where they are least expected.
- Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

Tesla comes to mind.

#277

The world owes all its onward progress to men ill at ease.
The happy man inevitably confines himself within ancient limits.

- Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)

#278

To solve big problems you have to be willing to do unpopular things.
- Lido Anthony "Lee" Iacocca (1924-), past CEO of Chrysler

Would kicking Relativity to the curb qualify?

#279

Contrary to most professional opinion, a gnawing dissatisfaction with life is not a sign of "mental illness," nor an indication of poor social adjustment, nor a character disorder. A person who is beginning to sense the suffering of life is, at the same time, beginning to awaken to deeper realities, truer realities. For suffering smashes to pieces the complacency of our normal fictions about reality and forces us to become alive in a special sense -- to see carefully, to feel deeply, to touch ourselves and our worlds in ways we have heretofore avoided.
- Ken Wilber

Contrary to most professional opinion, a gnawing dissatisfaction with physics is not a sign of "mental illness", nor an indication of poor social adjustment, nor a character disorder. A person who is beginning to sense the weaknesses of physics is, at the same time, beginning to awaken to deeper principles, truer principles. For suffering smashes to pieces the complacency of our normal fictions about science and forces us to become alive in a special sense -- to see clearly, to think deeply, and to model our world in ways we have heretofore avoided.

#280

We can do it, you know. We can get there. We can have it all. The Third Millennium AD can be the green millennium, the time in which we learn to live as responsible human beings at last. There is no law, natural or divine, which demands that the world we live in become poorer, harsher and more dangerous. If it continues to become that way, it is only because we do it ourselves.
- Isaac Asimov and Frederik Pohl

We can do it, you know.

We can appreciate a theory as simple, as elegant and complete as Spring-And-Loop Theory. And well before the Third Millennium AD.

We'll just have to leave our wallets at home.

#281

To prejudge other men's notions before we have looked into them
is not to show their darkness but to put out our own eyes.

- John Locke

#282

Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination.
- John Dewey

And been met by universal contempt, disinterest and condemnation.

Just ask President Trump.

#283

People should think things out fresh
and not just accept conventional terms
and the conventional way of doing things.

- R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983)

#284

You can recognize a pioneer by the arrows in his back.
- Beverly Rubik

#285

People cannot discover new lands until they have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
- Andre Gide

If we keep blindly praising Relativity and Quantum Mechanics and the Standard Model, we'll continue to act like cowards.

#286

Almost all really new ideas have a certain aspect of foolishness when they are first produced.
- Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947)

It can seem foolish to say there are only two "particles".

Just two types of energy in the Universe.

And nothing else.

#287

It's not that I'm so smart. It's just that I stay with problems longer.
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

The problems Einstein stayed with the longest?

(1) Whether there was an ether -- resolved by Spring-And-Loop Theory.

(2) Quantum mechanics conflicts -- replaced by Spring-And-Loop Theory.

#288

Finding good ideas is hard. Finding different ideas is hard. Thus finding good, different ideas is really, really hard. To do it, you need to regularly traffic outside your normal circles, but not so far that you compromise your commitment to simplicity and consistency.
- Tim Hanson, here

#289

There is nothing in the world except empty curved space.
Matter, charge, electromagnetism, and other fields are only manifestations of the curvature of space.

- John Wheeler

There is no "empty" anywhere. Just Universal Matrix (ether) everywhere.

There is no "curved space". The UM has nowhere to curve to.

Matter is protons. Not related to charge, which is mobile springs
(thanks to matter's gravity-inducing changes).

The E & the M of Electromagnetism shouldn't be so universally equated.

The electro- is springs only, while -magnetism requires matter protons.

Oh yeah...THERE ARE NO FIELDS.

More in an upcoming talks on fields, and energy.

#290

The physical vacuum carries within itself the possibilities of everything that can exist in the physical world. Once we attain true knowledge of the vacuum, we will have a comprehensive knowledge of everything, including the laws of nature. It is as in the thinking of the ancient philosophers. The knowledge of the void, the "nothing," is intimately connected with the knowledge of the "something". We take it as a matter of course that empty space is not really empty.
- Henning Genz

There is nothing physical. Anywhere.
There is no "vacuum". Anywhere.
There is no "void"; no "nothing". Anywhere.
There is no "space", nevermind "empty space". Anywhere.

The non-physical vacuum is the opposite of the physical world.

The yang to its yin*, and we do indeed need a "true knowledge" of it.

The ether is the real power and intelligence of life, as opposed to
the lower speed, deadening and numbing energy of the physical.

* - By the way, all life starts with the seed, the positive male power, the yang. The yin is the environment, the receptive female, the yin. So the phrase should be yang and yin. It is always alarming when systems are built on bad initial premises. Especially 180 degree wrong ones.

Beauty is perfection of rhythm, balanced perfection of rhythm. Everything in Nature is expressed by rhythmic waves of light. Every thought and action is a light-wave of thought and action. If one interprets the God within one, one's thoughts and actions must be balanced rhythmic waves. Ugliness, fears, failures and diseases arise from unbalanced thoughts and actions. Therefore think beauty always if one desire vitality of body and happiness.
- Walter Russell, "The Man Who Tapped The Secrets Of The Universe"

#292

Falsehood is cowardice, the truth courage.
- Hosea Ballou

tEmP theorists are cowards.

#293

If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.
- Albert Einstein

Extremist statements are unwise.

Still, any time one goes up against a sacred cow, or a conspiracy most people are living under, prepare for shocked reactions.

It doesn't even have to be labeled "absurd".

What is absurd about the idea that vaccines contains poisons? Mercury is a poison, right? Same with aluminum, and formaldehyde. So there you go, vaccines have poisons, and we are now forced BY LAW to have these poisons injected into us. Into our muscle tissue, where it will stay for months, years, or perhaps forever.

Similarly, how absurd is it that microwave radiation -- the nearest thing there is to sunlight -- might affect our bodies like sunlight does? Specifically, making our pineal gland think it is daytime...all night long. Thus blocking our pineal gland from secreting melatonin -- the greatest anti-oxidant of them all. Thus hampering our body's natural ability to heal itself. Thus encouraging problems like cancer.


Spring-And-Loop Theory is a reasonable theory.

If we started with Spring-And-Loop Theory, then everything presented by tEmP theorists in the past 100 years would be the thing appearing absurd.

And actually be absurd.

I like the scientific spirit -- the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them.
This is ultimately fine, and keeps the way beyond open.

- Walt Whitman (05/31/1819-1892), author-poet

The "willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them" has never occurred to tEmP theorists.

In extreme contrast, Spring-And-Loop Theory surrendered its original idea about neutrinos, and its second idea about them, before it figured them out.

Spring-And-Loop Theory has also given up the hyphens in its very name -- realizing there is no spring-loop "bond" between matter and ether, nor is there a strong force holding quarks together in an atom.

Spring And Loop Theory -- true to the scientific spirit.

#295

It never ceases to surprise me at the infinite capacity of the human mind to resist the introduction of useful knowledge.
- Thomas Lounsbury

This is the default human response.

Resistance.

I guess that is what apex predators do.  Fight.

#296

Don't be a slave to history. Don't let existing code dictate future code. All code can be replaced if it is no longer appropriate. Even within one program, don't let what you've already done constrain what you do next -- be ready to refactor. This decision may impact the project schedule. The assumption is that the impact will be less than the cost of not making the change.
- Andrew Hunt, "The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman To Master"

Physicists always assume that a radically new theory will require them to throw out everything they know.

Even though they never throw anything away anyway.

While not quite true, their more accurate realization is that a new better theory would put them out of a job.

tEmP theorists aren't so dumb.

They're just corrupt.

#297

The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new.
- Pema Chodron

When one's truths are fundamental, they conflict with nothing good.

tEmP theories conflict with everything.

What does that tell you about their truth content?

#298

It is the obvious which is so difficult to see most of the time. People say 'It's as plain as the nose on your face.' But how much of the nose on your face can you see, unless someone holds a mirror up to you?
- Isaac Asimov, "I, Robot"

There is an ether.

Can't see it.

Still obvious.

#299

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.
- Isaac Asimov

So very true.

So very very true.

#300

Difficulties vanish when faced boldly.
- Isaac Asimov

"Can't be unified" physics has vanished.

"Won't let itself be unified" physics remains.

#301

My theory is significant primarily because it is the truth.
This means it is simple, solid, sound, immutable and powerful.
Physics today is the opposite of all of those things.
And so the battle lines are drawn.
A small voice of truth against an industry of lies.
tEmP theories don't stand a chance.

#302

There are through-lines between the positive contributors.
There is chaos among the deviants.
