TOPIC: Change of a Paradigm of a Physical Science by Sergey Aleks Starostin [refresh]

Author Sergey Starostin wrote on Aug. 27, 2012 @ 17:40 GMT
Essay Abstract

Reflections are given in the essay on the subject of a "radio" structure of the world and a "gravitational" structure of the world

Author Bio

The author was born in the city of Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk region, Russia in 1969. Since summer of 2004 the author worked over creation of the engine working on without a fuel cycle, on the basis of use of energy of a magnetic field of a permanent magnet. The received results changed representations to existing dogmas in a physical science.

Dear Sergey, kagdila!

I read your essay with attention. It is interesting approach and I would like to have your view point about a gravity question : what do you think about gravity and space or dark energy, which relationship do they maintain between them.

Do you think that the expansion of the space is a force opposite to the Gravity ?

All the best with your essay!

Dear Sergey,

in the formula of weight: m = F (V q G), what is G? Is m a force or it is a mass? It is hard to understand , very bad English.

Use of other languages than English might here be justified only in special cases, e.g. if one refers to a paper that was written in languages like Latin, Italian, French, Dutch, or German which are using the same letters and are more or less understandable to every Englishman while translations are not always available or their content is lossy.

Wladeju rucckim jazykom (I understand Russian), nonetheless I would like to ask for excusing my refusal to comment on the essay. I will merely take the opportunity to discuss the expression paradigm the author used in the title.

Thomas Kuhn popularized the word paradigm by introducing the term paradigm shift in 1962 when Einstein's 1905 papers were accepted by the majority. While the remarkable progress by Columbus, Kepler, Galileo, Descartes, Leibniz, Newton and others actually deserves the denotation paradigm shift, there are many experts who doubt that Einstein's relativity is correct.

My essay primarily only questions Einstein's denial of the obvious to everybody separation between past and future. However, I found out that an experiment was inconclusive which gave rise to a theory by Lorentz and its subsequent modification by Einstein. See my Fig. 5 .

Dear Eckard Blumschein

I familiarized with your work. I am afraid nasty I understand English. I tried to state the personal comprehension of a peace arrangement in the work.

First of all, the not a consent with coryphaeuses of physics in treatment them definitions "physical weight". On my deep belief scientists identify substance with obligatory presence of weightiness. For this reason at a formula written down by me there is except "q - substance density", "V - substance volume" two key values it:

G-force of action of gravitation;

△F - set of counterforces to driving of weight of substance under the influence of force of gravitation.

Dear Sergey Starostin,

I'd like you to know I have read your essay. I'm afraid I have not grasped everything you have written. As there are so many essays in the competition now I can not devote much time to each.

I think something has been long overlooked by mainstream science and that is continual motion of all matter, considered over all scales. Rather than matter being static in a space-time continuum. That motion of the object gives an amount of effect upon the (pre-space-time) environment. Also rather than curvature of space-time causing gravity, it is more likely to be disturbance of the environment of space affecting neighbouring bodies and curving light rays. That then affects when that EM data is received. Altering the reality fabricated from it.There may be some overlap in what we are thinking there.

You substitute some important words for other familiar ones. I replaced them with what I thought you meant to say, to follow the sense of the sentences, though you may have been attempting to communicate something quite different. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Georgina

After studying about 250 essays in this contest, I realize now, how can I assess the level of each submitted work. Accordingly, I rated some essays, including yours.

Cood luck.

If you do not understand why your rating dropped down. As I found ratings in the contest are calculated in the next way. Suppose your rating is
$R_1$
and
$N_1$
was the quantity of people which gave you ratings. Then you have
$S_1=R_1 N_1$
of points. After it anyone give you
$dS$
of points so you have
$S_2=S_1+ dS$
of points and
$N_2=N_1+1$
is the common quantity of the people which gave you ratings. At the same time you will have
$S_2=R_2 N_2$
of points. From here, if you want to be R2 > R1 there must be:
$S_2/ N_2>S_1/ N_1$
or
$(S_1+ dS) / (N_1+1) >S_1/ N_1$
or
$dS >S_1/ N_1 =R_1$
In other words if you want to increase rating of anyone you must give him more points
$dS$
then the participant`s rating
$R_1$
was at the moment you rated him. From here it is seen that in the contest are special rules for ratings. And from here there are misunderstanding of some participants what is happened with their ratings. Moreover since community ratings are hided some participants do not sure how increase ratings of others and gives them maximum 10 points. But in the case the scale from 1 to 10 of points do not work, and some essays are overestimated and some essays are drop down. In my opinion it is a bad problem with this Contest rating process. I hope the FQXI community will change the rating process.
