Participate in a unique exploration of the Cosmos: venture into the sub-atomic realm, even into the sub-quantum realm where the roots of reality reside, and into the domain of cosmic-scale cell-structure and beyond to infinity. Along the way, discover the cause of mass, the cause of gravitation, and rediscover Einstein’s “nonponderable” aether and Heraclitus’ harmony-of-opposites principle. … The book represents the ultimate vindication for all the skeptics who resisted the "preposterous" Big Bang mythology and who refused to join the exploding-cosmos religion.
This new work contains 317 pages, 61 illustrations, references, and index … Available from C-FAR Books.

 


My comments on the latest mass media "Official Science" news story:


Do not be misled by the recent reports of the detection of gravity waves.
What the LIGO apparatus measures is the interference from beams of self-generated electromagnetic waves. It seems highly probable that what LIGO actually detected was some vibrational “noise” or some unexplained interference; and NOT gravity waves originating from a distant binary system (in which two extremely massive black holes are supposedly in the process of merging). How the data, the wave patterns, are interpreted is subject to theory and restricted by theory. Naturally the official interpretation must conform to the Officially-sanctioned theory of gravity —Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Thus, the light patterns recorded by LIGO are interpreted via Einstein’s mathematical concept of gravity. The problem is the general-relativity-gravity interpretation, as is well known, ignores the space medium!

Have gravity waves really been detected?
Think about this: The academic experts do not have the cause and mechanism of gravity (Isaac Newton did not, Albert Einstein did not, and today’s big-bang astrophysicists do not). Their theory of gravity is embarrassingly incomplete! So, if they do not yet understand the nature of gravity itself, how then can they claim to be able to recognize the waves that gravity supposedly emits? The experts cannot even answer the simple question: Specifically, what is it that is waving? What is waving back and forth?
    Here is something else the reports fail to mention: The gravity waves that are actually detectable are those associated with the turbulence in the aether flow (the space medium streaming through our Solar System). Australian physicist Reginald T. Cahill has been examining these aether-flow waves for over 15 years. –CR (2016 May)

Excerpts:
● “The man accredited with discovering universe expansion did not believe that the universe was expanding. Hubble was convinced that the key evidence, the cosmic redshift, was caused by some other factor, something more fundamental than mere expansion.”
● “With the recent discovery of a new cosmic-redshift mechanism, and its theoretical validation, it turns out that Hubble was right.”
● Explains how “an infinite, non-expanding, perpetually regenerating universe" is able to predict a dark night sky.

It’s simply a matter of precious time —there is just too little of it. All my available time is taken up by research, writing, and website maintenance —in fact, two more web domains have been purchased. It is all being done for the purpose of providing the educated and interested public with the ammunition to refute and replace the utterly bankrupt big-bang Worldview.

Higgs Boson Discovered?
After 50 long years of searching, Physicists claim to have detected the Higgs boson, the "particle" that ostensibly bestows the property of mass on all other such particles. Is it now time to celebrate? … Definitely not.
   The question now is this: If the Higgs ‘particle’ is the giver of mass to all other particles, what then gives the Higgs itself its mass?! (Yes, the newly discovered particle has mass, lots of it!) A difficult and embarrassing question indeed. It is like asking:
If God created everything, then who, or what, created God?
   While physicists think they have solved the mass problem, the reality is that they have unwittingly exposed an even bigger problem —the riddle of “First Cause”.

   However, other revisionists have unimaginable difficulties. Consider the ongoing persecution of revisionists in other fields of intellectual pursuit: 
"It makes you wonder —about the immense effort being made by State and State-sponsored organizations with budgets of tens of millions of dollars and thousands of employees and associates to smother and punish these few men and women. Every punishing instrument imaginable is used, every vicious slander conceivable, every flagrant and pervasive form of censorship that law allows, including the imprisonment of simple writers for thought crimes against the State. ...

Cosmic-Redshift Distance Law Without c Without H
Comments & Links

Conrad Ranzan
 

A cellularly-structured non-expanding universe solves many of the major problems facing conventional cosmology. The paper focuses on how the cellular model greatly simplifies the calculation of cosmic distance while providing remarkable agreement with the supernovae-type-1a distance calibration. There should be no doubt that the features of the model being presented are innovative, provocative, timely, and of interest to a broad audience.

 

ARTICLE LINKS:

Cosmic-Redshift Distance Law Without c Without H, by C. Ranzan, published in
    Galilean Electrodynamics Vol.25, No.3, pp.43-55 (May/June 2014). “Preprint”

 

WebPage
Contents:

1. Background and history of publication efforts
2. Author’s comment: Cosmology needs reality-based physics
3. Who discovered the expansion of the universe?
4. Review by a student of DSSU theory

Meanwhile, Orthodox Cosmologists are sticking to the carcass of a dead theory.

 

1.   Background and history of publication efforts

The defining premise of modern cosmology is the Hubble law (the law of cosmic redshifted light): The larger the redshift, the greater is the distance to the object that emitted the radiation.

DSSU cosmology and the content of my Paper conform to this law.

From the very beginning of modern cosmology, the application of Hubble’s principle always required the lightspeed constant and the Hubble-expansion-of-space parameter. Why? They were needed so that the z-function distances will agree with astronomically-observed distances —that is, so that redshift-measured distances will agree with distances determined by other means. This was the situation for most of the 20th century.

Then in 2005 a new and superior formulation was developed.

Now if you think the academic astrophysics community would be interested in a remarkably simple and accurate formulation of cosmic distance, a formulation requiring neither the speed of light not the Hubble expansion parameter, you would be wrong.

 

  The New Journal of Physics was not interested (July 2008).

 

●  The Journal of Scientific Exploration, which obviously deals with new rationally-presented ideas, was not interested (according to managing editor Joy Richmond, Aug 2008).

 

●  General Relativity and Gravitation, a journal that invites submissions relating to astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology, was not interested (Nov 2011). The editor Roy Maartens (Editor-in-Chief) admitted that the Paper presents an interesting concept; however, based on criticism of what was NOT included and NOT discussed, he rejected the Paper. Instead of allowing an important part of a theory to be presented, it seems this editor wants the entire DSSU theory along with the vast amount of supporting arguments and evidence. (Keep in mind, at 15 single-spaced pages, the article is already quite lengthy.)

 

●  The International Journal of Modern Physics D (IJMPD), a World Scientific publication covering the subjects of Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology, was not interested —as expressed in an unsigned! rejection letter (Dec 2011).

 

●  Astrophysics & Space Science (Ap&SS ), a Springer Netherlands publication, was not interested (Jan 2012).

 

Dear Sir,

I regret to inform you that I cannot consider your article for publication, as the cosmic model you describe does not appear to be based upon any known physical process or observational basis [Totally incorrect statement! –CR]. The Lambda-CDM model (as well as some more unconventional approaches such as MOND) on the other hand has a great deal of support in both these areas, and no doubt you will assert that I am simply espousing a scientific orthodoxy by saying that. Nonetheless if you wish to overthrow conventional science, or at least put your ideas on an equal basis to those I have cited, you will have to go a lot further than you have at present to provide a consistent physics underpinning of your speculations.

Yours Sincerely,

Michael Dopita   (Editor in Chief, Ap&SS)

 

My comments: The editor-in-chief of Ap&SS, Michael Dopita, evidently is unaware of the phenomenon of space expansion (as the foundation pillar of all modern cosmology), unaware of gravitational contraction (as the pillar supporting the process of galaxy clustering), and unaware of the astronomical observations that the Universe is cellularly structured (from observations collected over 50 years). Let me explain.

The DSSU model is firmly based on the two pillars just described and the observed cellularity. Yet Michael Dopita makes the bizarre statement, “… the cosmic model you describe does not appear to be based upon any known physical process or observational basis.” In that same sentence he rejects (for publication) a research paper that is solidly based on the above three criteria. Let me reword that: Michael Dopita is in effect rejecting this paper which uses three essential phenomena because there is no evidence for these phenomena!

The rejection letter ends by dismissing the paper’s findings as “speculations”. [A deficiency in the “underpinning of your speculations.”] The irony is of course that the model he (the editor) so illogically defends is the one based on the mother of all speculations —the cataclysmic cosmic genesis.

Anyway, here is my reply:

 

Response sent 2012-1-12: To: Michael Dopita (Editor in Chief, Ap&SS):

In response to your letter: I am baffled by your statements critical of my submitted paper, "Cosmic-Redshift Distance Law Without c and Without H".

Either you have not read the paper or your knowledge of astrophysics is extremely limited. The cosmic model described, contrary to your assertion, is based upon known physical processes —the known physical process of space expansion and the known physical process of gravitational contraction. Furthermore, contrary to your assertion, the model does have an observational basis —the cellularly structured network of galaxy clusters consistently observed by astronomers. There is also the observational evidence provided by the Supernovae data—evidence which the manuscript shows to be dramatically and unequivocally in agreement with the new cosmic model.

An honest response —in rejecting a presentation of sound scientific arguments— would have been to declare it unsuitable for publication in the journal Astrophysics & Space Science because the journal is committed more to the dogma of an exploding universe than to the search for scientific truth.

Although a response from you is not expected, it would be welcome. It would be entered into the discussion being presented on the Cellular Universe website.

Respectfully and sincerely,

●  The Astrophysical Journal (ApJ) rejected the Paper in February 2012. No surprise here. The ApJ is the exclusive domain of Expanding Universe dogma. DSSU theory represents a serious threat to the legitimacy of its belief system.

 

The Paper was, in the end, accepted for publication in Galilean Electrodynamics Journal (GED). Although it was accepted in March 2012, the article did not appear in print until May 2014!

Originally prepared and written-up in April 2007, the article, after seven submissions, was finally published in May 2014.

 It had taken seven long years!

2.  Author’s comment: Cosmology needs reality-based physics

The academic discipline of Cosmology and Astrophysics has, for many years now, adopted a rather fanciful version of physics. There has been a gradually drifted away from reality-based explanations of phenomena. So called “modern cosmology” started as a mathematical construction, back in 1916, but over the decades the math theories turned into a variety of metaphysical theories —each one stranger than the next. But what is worse, the belief grew that the evolving theories actually represent the Cosmos. Witness, if you will, the paradox-loaded Big Bang of which there are many versions: Hot versions; cold versions; models with make-believe mysterious dark matter; models with enigmatic beginning and ending. Objects that make no physical sense, as in the case of black holes, are accepted as being real.

I believe that it is time for traditional Physics to take a stronger role in introducing some hard physics into universe modeling, and maybe nudge Academic cosmology to stop promoting the nonsensical notion of expansion-of-the-whole-universe. It is time for objectivist physicists to help bring the astro-community back on course.

In keeping with this effort, the article, Cosmic-Redshift Distance Law Without c Without H, uses reality-based hard physics.

3.  Who discovered the expansion of the universe?

Question: Who discovered the expansion of the universe?

Answer: Nobody!  No such discovery was ever made.

Edwin Hubble (1889-1953), on whose behalf the claim is often made, did not discover the expansion of the universe —he discovered a redshift versus distance relationship for distant galaxies. He found that the greater the galaxy’s distance, the longer the wavelength of its light. He, along with a very few other astronomers, discovered the cosmic redshift.

The expansion of the universe concept came about in two stages. First, there was the interpretation that the cosmic redshift was caused by the expansion of space. Second, that narrow interpretation was then extrapolated, without limit, to the universe as a whole!

To extrapolate the evidence of wavelength variation into proof of the expansion of the whole universe is wild speculation. It is just plain bad science. But what is far worse is the refusal to seriously consider a simple alternate explanation which does not require universe-wide expansion!

In their refusal or reluctance to publish research relating to the DSSU, editors are hindering the advancement of astro-related sciences.

Meanwhile, Orthodox Cosmologists are sticking to the carcass of a dead theory.

4.  Review by a student of DSSU theory

"Cosmic-Redshift Distance Law Without c, Without H" answers several stubborn misunderstandings I've had about the role of Hubble’s constant and the speed of light in determining astronomical distance and scale, and little wonder, because we are awash in Big Bang propaganda. The author’s narrative reads like a novel and renders the BB as one universe dead on arrival, particularly the way it builds the DSSU story in Sections 1 through 4. What Einasto, Layzer and Ostriker have to say adds such powerful observational credibility to DSSU. And, yes Jaan Einasto deserves applause indeed!

Sections 5 & 6 require paying very close attention because the meat of the paper resides here with the proofs presented with near irrefutable graphs. This is a beautifully constructed paper with the author’s genius for impeccable logic in total command. I trust this paper will be received well because it goes to the heart of DSSU brilliantly and I suspect that, during the peer-review process, the author will continue to polish the theory. It needs to be understood. It is so powerful and necessary. I hope the "Summary and Reflections" at the end will be enlarged, because I feel this section deserves a continuation of the quality narrative with which the paper opened so brilliantly. …
