"Saying what needs to be said about the most sucky parts of physics"
Most of us who become experimental physicists do so for two reasons: (1) we love the tools of physics because to us they have intrinsic beauty, and (2) we dream of finding new secrets of nature as important and as exciting as those uncovered by our scientific heroes. But we walk a narrow path with pitfalls on either side. If we spend all our time developing equipment, we risk the appellation of "plumber", and if we merely use the tools developed by others, we risk the censure of our peers for being parasitic.
- Luis Alvarez
Never has there been a time with less need for tool-making or tool-using than today.
If anything, tEmP theorists should be singing the praises of their typewriters, as they pound out their graphic novels of dark fiction.
It is childish to rest in the discovery of mere coincidences, or of partial and extraneous laws.
- Henry David Thoreau
It is coincidence, for example, that a different mass distribution could explain the Galaxy Rotation Problem of our galaxy.
A different mass distribution could be made to work for the Milky Way galaxy, but then a completely different mass distribution would be needed for every other galaxy.
Isn't it interesting that no one (except Alexander Unzicker) has pointed this out?
I have a good idea every two years. Give me a topic, I will give you the idea!
- Fritz Zwicky, the astronomer who coined "Dark Matter"
Headline: "tEmP Theorist Uses 'The Virial Theorem' To Come Up With The Dark Matter Cure!"
"In astronomy, the mass and size of a galaxy is often defined in terms of the "virial mass" and "virial radius". Because galaxies can be highly extended, it can be hard to define specific, finite measures of their mass and size.
The virial theorem, and related concepts, provide a convenient means to quantify these properties."
Minor detail: the theorem has no applicability to stars orbiting a black hole. It is just handy mathematical mumbo jumbo. Like Calabi-Yau shapes.
Major detail: tEmP theories have an incorrect model of how gravity works, and stars orbiting a black hole reveal this.
Ergo: Physics is broken. And almost nobody cares.
A nothing will serve just as well as a something about which nothing could be said.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein
Dark matter is a nothing. An invented "fudge factor"...that doesn't solve anything.
The bigger mystery is why every physicists, and every physics publication, accepts such a garbage non-solution.
All science is full of statements where you put your best face on your ignorance. You say "We know awfully little about this, but more or less irrespective of the stuff we don't know about, we can make certain useful deductions."
- Hermann Bondi
tEmP theories are not even this honest.
They are shameless, greedy, and dedicated to furthering a massive lie.
True scientists do not "put their best face on their ignorance". They just say "I don't know."
But there is no money in admitting that.
An age is called Dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see.
- James Michener
tEmP theorists refuse to see that tEmP theories are broken.
As a result we all live in dark times.
While paying tEmP theorists to LIE to us.
And from this such small difference of eight minutes of arc it is clear why Ptolemy, since he was working with bisection of the linear eccentricity, accepted a fixed equant point.
Tycho Brahe, from whose observations this eight-minute error of Ptolemy's in regard to Mars is deduced, it is fitting that we accept, acknowledge and build upon it.
So let us work upon it so as to at last track down the real form of celestial motions. These arguments giving support to our belief that the assumptions are incorrect.
This is the path I shall, in my own way, strike out in what follows. For if I thought the eight minutes in ecliptic longitude were unimportant, I could make a sufficient correction, by bisecting the linear eccentricity, to the hypothesis.
Now, because they could not be disregarded, these eight minutes alone will lead us along a path to the reform of the whole of Astronomy, and they are the matter for a great part of this work.
- Johannes Kepler, "New Astronomy", 1609
Brahe found an error.
Kepler changed direction because of it.
And every physicists after benefited from the original error.
In contrast, tEmP theorists accepting the dark matter and dark energy band-aids, make no progress whatsoever. Except with their bank balances.
Where any answer is possible, all answers are meaningless.
- Isaac Asimov, "The Road To Infinity", 1979
Dark matter and dark energy are just two of the tell tail signs of how sick tEmP theories are.
Inflation is a spectacularly stupid idea.
The Higgs is a disgusting abomination.
String theory failed at the model level. Everything after that was a bad investment, that only set physics back further.
And all of these mistakes came about when physics moved away from the ether.
tEmP theorists are living the meaningless dream!
Any one whose disposition leads him to attach more weight to unexplained difficulties than to the explanation of facts will certainly reject my theory.
- Charles Darwin, "The Origin Of Species"
The point is that errors tarnish theories and need to go.
"Answers" have questionable value, and mainly in proportion to how much they improve on earlier theories.
Answers are like hammers. Nothing more nor less.
They simply work. At hammering.
But getting to the hammers hammer stage? Difficult.
Consider what the Wright brothers went through on the way to Kitty Hawk. They had to figure out that a propeller was a wing, not an air-slicing knife.
One hundred years later the Smithsonian tried to better what they did, using the same tool that were available at the time.
They couldn't. The Wright brothers had created the perfect propeller. The perfect hammer.
Darwin's theory has problems.
Therefore, it can and must be improved.
There is no point in peddling it like a snake oil "cure".
Similarly, dark matter and dark energy are fancy words for "tEmP theories are broken". Stop funding the search for dark matter. Stop funding the use of dark matter and dark energy. Force researchers to go back to the drawing board.
In other words, do what any honest six year old would do.
Exercising the right of occasional suppression and slight modification, it is truly absurd to see how plastic a limited number of observations become, in the hands of men with preconceived ideas.
- Francis Galton
The more corrupt the observers, the more limited the number of observations can be.
There can even be none.
Just ask any dark matter or dark energy theorist.
Folly is a more dangerous enemy to the good than evil. Evil always carries the seeds of its own destruction. Against folly we have no such defense. Neither protests nor force can touch it; reasoning is no use.
- Dietrich Bonhoffer
Turning away from the ether was an obvious evil.
It took serious con artists, working together, to move physics away from it.
It also took a lot of time. And met with great resistance.
Whereas trying to explain failures with "it must be dark matter" is a more dangerous enemy to the good because everyone jumped on board from the beginning.
Instead of an obvious move away from the truth, it has become a hunt for the non-existent.
Like the #PigPharma "search for the [cancer] cure".
I say, let's learn more and then speculate.
- Vernor Vinge
The problem with that idea, Vernor, is that it doesn't pay their mortgages.
If it's not DARK, it doesn't MATTER.
Every tEmP theorist has this taped to their bathroom mirror.
They are that desperate to stay relevant, despite building their career on broken theories.
If science could get rid of consciousness, it would have disposed of the only stumbling block to its universal application.
- Brand Blanshard
A brutally cynical thought.
Full of truth.
The dark matter/energy equivalent is:
If tEmP theorists could break every lightbulb in the lab,
they'd be happy in the darkness.
Ignorance has no light, but error follows a false one.
- Charles Caleb Colton
tEmP theories have a broken gravity model -- the light is not shining.
tEmP theorists following dark matter/energy are following a dark light.
Yes, the phrase "dark light" makes no sense.
Exactly like "dark matter" and "dark energy".
My final remark to those going into experimental science is that they should pay little attention to the speculative physics ideas of my generation. After all, if my generation had any really good speculative ideas, we would be carrying these ideas out ourselves.
- Martin Perl
This is great advice.
Unfortunately the school and "higher" educational systems work against this.
We are forced to memorize and regurgitate years and years of falsehoods.
Few of us ever recover from this.
Occasionally the exercise of one's judgment ought to end in absolute reservation.
It may be very distasteful, and cause great fatigue, to suspend a conclusion; but as we are not infallible, so we ought to be cautious.
The man who rests in his position is not so far from right as he who, proceeding in a wrong direction, is ever increasing his distance.
- Michael Faraday
Today tEmP theories are parsecs away from reason, and accelerating in the wrong direction.
Dark energy driving their dark matter hearts away from humanity.
Science is the outcome of being prepared to live without certainty and therefore a mark of maturity. It embraces doubt and loose ends.
- Anthony Grayling
Not all scientists are scientists.
Niels Bohr, for example, chose to disrupt a sick friend's sleep rather than sit alone with his doubts.
Neils Bohr was a cow pie, plopped from the anus of the Quantum Mechanics sacred cow.
The basic trouble is that people think that "right" and "wrong" are absolute; that everything that isn't perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong.
- Isaac Asimov, "The Relativity of Wrong"
The irony is that this article is called "The Relativity of Wrong" but its very points are perfectly applicable to relativity itself.
Relativity is relatively wrong.
As is quantum mechanics. For the same reason.
Only a theory based on the Planck scale has a chance of avoiding the "relatively wrong" label.
QxD is totally and completely wrong.
Every honest physicist knows it is absolutely worthless.
But people keep getting Nobels for QxD theories...
The Higgs is totally and completely wrong.
The Higgs is disgustingly wrong. Shamefully wrong.
Totally corrupt, with 3,000 scientists backing it, wrong.
Dark Matter is totally and completely wrong.
Dark Energy is relatively wrong. The universe is expanding, but the reason (i.e. the model) to explain it is totally and completely wrong.
String theory is not wrong in scale only. Everything else about string theory is totally and completely wrong.
The dull mind, once arriving at an inference that flatters the desire, is rarely able to retain the impression that the notion from which the inference started was purely problematic.
- George Eliot
Certainly true for dark matter fans.
"We've found dark matter!" A great feeling, based on absolutely nothing at all.
The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth -- that the error and the truth are simply opposites. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one.
- H.L. Mencken
Physics constantly does this.
Gravity anomalies become dark matter in the blink of an eye.
DM becomes...stupid theories and money wasting projects (like the one that finished in July, 2016, finding NO DM).
Boy does the 1% love how full of themselves "smart" people are...
There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.
- Ansel Adams
tEmP theories are nothing but sharp images, of fuzzy and flawed concepts.
Wormholes -- sharp and clear conceptually; shocking lack of anything resembling science in the low level concept behind them.
Supersymmetry -- incredibly precise image of what they should be, built on a non-existent concept that could be summarized as "would be nice".
Dark matter -- pot of gold at the end of the rainbow image, based on "we never bothered to run the numbers" concept.
To make a discovery is not the same as to understand a discovery.
- Abraham Pais, "Inward Bound: Of Matter And Forces In The Physical World", 1986
They are two distinctly different processes.
Discovery: Crude oil was coming out of the ground.
Understanding the discovery: Man figures out how to power vehicles by crude oil.
Uncertainty is intrinsic to the process of finding out what you don't know, not a weakness to avoid.
- John Brockman
A failed experiment threatens our research budget.
Uncertainty threatens our comforts.
The solution is surprising for most -- get rid of your comforts.
When experimental results are in conflict with earlier results, the matter is often disposed of in an instant by pointing out a possible source of error in the experiments of the predecessor, but without enquiring whether the error, if present, would be quantitatively sufficient to explain the discrepancy.1
Disagreement with former results should never be taken easily, but every effort should be made to find a true explanation.2
This can be done in many more cases than it actually is by the man "on the spot" who is already familiar with the essential details. But it may require a great deal of imagination, and supplementary experiments.
- August Krogh
1 Dark matter is the very best example of this
2 Not done because this directly threatens research budgets
3 Most don't do this because they have no loyalty to their subject. Their loyalty is to their bank account only.
An illusion of a cure is worse than no cure. If you have no cure you'll keep looking for a cure. If you think you have a cure, you'll stop looking for a cure. It's the most dangerous thing around.
- Stefan Molyneux
The dark matter and dark energy 'illusions of a cure' are far worse than the 'no cure' fact that tEmP theories are broken, since they are built on fundamentally flawed models.
Theorizing has shifted to entirely metaphoric concepts. An arbitrary meaning is given to banal effects/observations.
- Alexander Unzicker, 26:54
Every anomalous experimental observation prompts the "It's dark matter!" battle cry.
There is no more dangerous error than that of mistaking the consequence for the cause.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
Consequence: Stars don't orbit a black hole as predicted
Dangerous error: Magical pixie dust (dark matter) must be the cause
Consequence: Everything is moving away from everything
Dangerous error: Everything started with a single explosion, and any anomalies in expansion are explained by magical dragon's breath (dark energy).
There could be shadow galaxies, shadow stars, and even shadow people.
- Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking's thoughts
could beare absolutely worthless. #031
The missing link in cosmology is the nature of dark matter and dark energy.
- Stephen Hawking
"The stuff we don't know is the missing link."
"If we could just know all of the stuff we don't know, we would know!"
What a loser you were, Hawking.
There are two possible outcomes: If the result confirms the hypothesis, then you've made a measurement. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you've made a discovery.
- Enrico Fermi
Yes, it is always exactly this simple.
Except today, when a lot of money is involved.
Looking back at the worst times, it always seems that they were times in which there were people who believed with absolute faith and absolute dogmatism in something. And they were so serious in this matter that they insisted that the rest of the world agree with them. And then they would do things that were directly inconsistent with their own beliefs in order to maintain that what they said was true.
- Richard Feynman
Feynman the Fraud would know because he did this numerous times.
First off, he believed gravity was not a factor in the nucleus.
Newton's laws are wrong in the world of atoms because things on a small scale behave nothing like things on a large scale.
- Richard Feynman
He was dead wrong about this, but managed to convince legions of young minds of the value of his dogma.
Equally disgraceful was Feynman's QCD -- a total fraud of a "unification" theory. Dogma of the most repulsive and dishonest variety.
He got a Nobel for that one.
What a disgusting POS.
It is more important to teach us to understand the concepts we have than to construct fictitious ones.
- Ludwig Wittgenstein
Said more simply: "Challenge your assumptions"
Nothing is so mischievous as the apotheosis (deification) of error.
- Francis Bacon
Discovery of error
should lead directly to
reexamination of assumptions.
It is the peculiar and perpetual error of the human intellect to be more moved and excited by affirmatives than by negatives.
- Francis Bacon
"We found out what dark matter is!!!"
Signed: tEmP idiots.
A crash is when your competitor's program dies.
When your program dies, it is an 'idiosyncrasy.'
- Guy Kawasaki, "The Macintosh Way"
Scary amount of truth to this...
We are so possessive of our own ideas.
So dismissive of the ideas of others.
One cannot explain one mystery by attributing it to another.
- Joe Nickell
Unless you are a tEmP theorist.
Scientists at the University of Oxford may have solved one of the biggest questions in modern physics, with a new paper unifying dark matter and dark energy into a single phenomenon: a fluid which possesses 'negative mass'.
December 5, 2018
tEmP theorists keep doubling down on their stupidity.
