—Another
major DSSU success, as it reveals amazing new insights! The theory has
uncovered the mechanism by which mass undergoes a total conversion to
energy. Yes, a mass to energy conversion with 100% efficiency! As everything else in the DSSU, it is a
perfectly natural process. Truly amazing!
Have gravity waves really been detected?

Participate in a unique exploration of the Cosmos: venture into the
subatomic realm, even into the subquantum realm where the roots of reality
reside, and into the domain of cosmicscale cellstructure and beyond to
infinity. Along the way, discover the cause of mass, the cause of
gravitation, and rediscover Einstein’s “nonponderable” aether and Heraclitus’
harmonyofopposites principle. … The book represents the ultimate
vindication for all the skeptics who resisted the "preposterous" Big Bang
mythology and who refused to join the explodingcosmos religion.
This new work contains 317 pages, 61 illustrations, references, and
index … Available from
CFAR 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
selfgenerated 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 Officiallysanctioned 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 generalrelativitygravity 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
bigbang 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 aetherflow
waves for over 15 years. –CR (2016 May)

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”.

INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM:
This website is mainly concerned with revisionism in cosmology. Those of us
involved in replacing the unnatural expandinguniverse paradigm are aware of
the difficulties involved.
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 Statesponsored 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. ... Makes you wonder." —Bradley R. Smith (2011)
"Discussing truth is so controversial, so dangerous … In most of the
world it is simply illegal.”

DEDICATION: This website is solemnly dedicated to those
individuals who have conducted research in their chosen field and have
informed others of their inquiries and suffered the consequences when

extends to those individuals currently imprisoned, and those now facing
trial and persecution simply for exercising their basic human right of
freedom of expression supposedly granted to them under the UN Charter of
Human Rights.
"Every
year, hundreds of writers and other literary professionals around the world
are imprisoned, prosecuted, persecuted, attacked, threatened, forced into
exile or even murdered as a result of their work."

The Key that Extends Einstein’s Relativity (Part 1)
Response to a
reviewer critical of DSSU aetherreferenced relativity
Conrad Ranzan
2010
Some Background
The main purpose of the research paper
DSSU Relativity –The Lorentz
Transformations Applied to AetherSpace is to present DSSU* relativity
(including the derivation of the extended Lorentz Transformations). The
secondary purpose is to show how an aetherbased theory subsumes Einstein’s
special relativity theory (ESR); to show how the ESR equations fit into a
broader and more realistic theory.
The paper challenges a belief long held by the Physics Community —the belief
that Einstein’s theory is incompatible with spacemedium theories.
Consider that the fundamental difference between DSSU relativity
and Einstein’s relativity is clearly irreconcilable —the former
embraces a subquantum space medium, the latter denies or ignores it. The fundamental
conflict is over aether space versus abstract space. Yet,
at a practical level, the two theories can be merged —and this can be
accomplished without altering the fundamental fact that all referenceframe velocities in DSSU are absolute (with respect to aether), while all
referenceframe velocities in ESR
are relative (with respect to an observer). ... The discussion below includes a description
of
the functional link —“the Key” of the main title.
There is an interesting historical aspect to all this. Einstein had
predicted, at a time when Dayton Miller was uncovering evidence of aether, that
if the detection of aether were to be confirmed, then it would mean the
invalidation of his theory of relativity. As it turned out, aether was
repeatedly detected. But Einstein’s relativity survived. Let me explain. The
detection of aether invalidated a premise that Einstein had considered essential
to his theory. But actually that premise was wholly unnecessary!
Einstein’s theory could work without it. And so, Einstein’s prediction of aether’s dire consequences was unfounded.
* DSSU is the acronym for Dynamic Steady State Universe. It is
a model based on the premise that all things are processes.
* * *
The paper
DSSU Relativity –The Lorentz Transformations Applied to
AetherSpace (published in Physics Essays
Vol.23, No.3, 2010 Sept. (Abstract)) was
examined by three different reviewers. Two of the reviewers approved
publication; but one was unreasonably critical and adamantly opposed
publication. He wrote,
“I deeply regret that I have to reject the publication of this paper, as I do
admire Dr. Ranzan’s courage in recognizing the aether and the problem’s with
Einstein’s theory, which deserves encouragement as the prevailing mindset in the
physics community, especially in the theoretical physics community, takes
Einstein’s theory religiously, and the mathematical framework of relativity is
weaved into the entire edifice of particle physics and cosmology. It is my
sincere wish that Dr. Ranzan is not discouraged by my rejection to his
manuscript in his pursuit of a revolutionary theory.”
Then, in a subsequent review, he stated, “I will not change my
recommendation.”
What follows is my forwarded response to two issues raised by this Reviewer.

The Response
Let me address the two misconceptions the Reviewer seems to harbor with
respect to DSSU relativity.
(1) The Reviewer believes (as stated in his earlier review) that I have
“simply used the result of Einstein’s SR, changed the appearance of the
equations and claimed big discoveries” and in this way came up with DSSU
relativity. This is just not so. In fact, it is not possible, within
standard physics, to go from an Einstein Special Relativity (ESR) equation to
the corresponding DSSU equation.
(2) The Reviewer is under the impression that I am attempting to invalidate
the ESR theory. This, too, is just not so.
I will demonstrate, below, that DSSU subsumes ESR. I will demonstrate that
DSSU is a broader theory than ESR by showing that ESR equations can be derived
from the corresponding DSSU equation but it is not possible to go the other way.
That is, within the restrictions imposed by ESR it is not possible to expand the
equations to become DSSU equations.
DSSU Encompasses ESR
Both DSSU and ESR are rooted in the basic Lorentz transformations. The
Lorentz transformations ensure the property of “light speed invariance” —the
measured speed of light in a vacuum will always be constant regardless of the
uniform motion of the lightsource or the observer.
Starting with the Lorentz transformations (at the top of the
Flowchart 1,
below), DSSU theory uses them to derive the “extended Lorentz transformation
equations” [detailed in the Paper]; ESR theory starts with the same transformations and uses
them to derive the equations of special relativity.
DSSU theory uses the “extended Lorentz transformation equations” to derive
the relativity equations in which velocities are aetherreferenced. I’ll come
back to this in a moment.
The ESR equations are derived from the basic Lorentz transformations applied
to abstract space. The contentious assumption is that aether does not
exist (or that aether is simply not detectable). All inertial velocities, then,
must necessarily be relative and there can be no such thing as an
aetherreferenced speed —or as Einstein would say, no preferred frame of
reference.
This immediately precludes any attempts to derive DSSU equations from within ESR.
And so, contrary to the Reviewer’s interpretation of the Paper, it is not
possible to change the ESR equations into DSSU equations. The aetherreferenced
restriction prevents it and leads such attempt immediately to a “dead end” (as
shown in 2nd column of the flowchart).
Now to show how the DSSU equations can be used to derived the ESR equations.
An important point to keep in mind is that in DSSU relativity there are no
referenceframe restrictions. One is free to formulate the equations using
aetherreferenced motion (absolute inertial motion) or, if one chooses, using
relative motion (apparent inertial motion).




Flowchart 1. The Lorentz transformations can be properly applied to aether
space (left column) or to abstract space (righthand column). The chart shows
that Einstein’s relativity equations can be derived from an aether theory.
Consequently, the domain of DSSU Relativity encompasses the restrictive domain
of Special Relativity. 

As stated earlier, the DSSU relativity equations are derived from the “extended Lorentz transformation equations.” Since the extended transformations
are aetherreferenced, so too are the DSSU equations. The simple procedure, to
convert the latter to observerreferenced equations (relativemotion equations), is to assume that one of the inertial
frames is at rest. For instance, Observer in frame A considers himself
motionless, thus
u_{A} is replaced by zero. Then the motion of frame B becomes the
relative motion; and so
u_{B} is replaced by
u. ... Absolute velocities are simply
replaced by apparent velocities. This conversion is carried out in
Figures 5, 9,
11, and 12 of the Paper. The result in each case is a pure
relativemotion
expression (identical in appearance and performance to the Special Relativity
equivalent).
The key that acts as a link between absolutemotion formulation and
relativemotion formulation is the velocityconversion expression
(equation 47 shown in Flowchart 2,
below). If we apply a strict definition,
then this conversion key can only be used in the loop of the lower half of the
flowchart and acts to reverse the conversion described in the above paragraph.
The key essentially recaptures and verifies the original DSSU equation.
The key
cannot be applied to the ESR dashed area of the flowcharts; simply because of
the aetherreference prohibition. (If one removes the prohibition, then one
immediately removes the “dead end”.)




Flowchart 2. The DSSU conversion KEY (yellow highlight) is the link between
any ESR equation and the corresponding DSSU equation. This absolutetorelative
velocity transformation equation appears as eqn (47) in the
Journal article.
Substitute “the KEY” into any Einstein relativity equation to obtain the
corresponding DSSU equation. 

In the Manuscript, I apply “the key” to velocity transformation, length
contraction, momentum, and kinetic energy. The subsummation of ESR by DSSU could
not be clearer!
In the above demonstration I’m not even asking anyone to believe in the
actual existence of aetherspace. Purely on the basis of the mathematics, the
argument is sound and the conclusion remains that one theory is obviously
broader than the other.
ESR is a theory for abstract space, a theory of apparent motion and effects.
DSSU is a theory for quasiphysical space, a theory of absoluteandapparent
motion and effects.
The point of the argument is that the ESR expressions can be derived from an
aether theory —from DSSU relativity. One simply assumes (or concludes from
certain historical experimental evidence, as Einstein probably did) that
absolute motion, for whatever unknown reason, is undetectable. Then
u_{A} and
u_{B}
must be replaced by apparent velocities. If the observer is in frame A then
u_{A}
is replaced by zero and
u_{B} is replaced by relative velocity
u. (However, this
does not necessarily mean
u_{A} = 0. The
u_{A} and
u_{B} variables are still reserved for the
aetherreferencing of the inertial situation.) An apparenttype relativity equation follows
immediately from the DSSU expression. And that equation is identical to ESR!
—yet nowhere did I start my argument with an ESR equation.
And most importantly, DSSU is a broader theory and has more applications
since its domain encompasses both relative inertial motion and
absolute inertial motion.
The NonMerger of the Relative and the Absolute
There is one other feature of DSSU relativity I would like to discuss. It is
related to the fact that DSSU aether is an interactive aether —it causes
intrinsic relativistic effects.
In the normal course of having another one of my research papers reviewed,
one of the referees stated that, “They [relativistic aether theories] all seem
to fail due to trying to merge two different and conflicting paradigms, namely,
the relativistic and the absolute.” ... I reflected on the soundness of his
assessment; and then it struck me. I could now understand the probable
explanation of why I have not run into any major problems (not as yet, anyway);
my theory does not merge the relativistic and the absolute. The two are kept
separate and the symbols make the separation explicit. ... 
As an aside,
another vastly simplifying feature of the
DSSU Worldview
is that time has no independent existence; which means, there is no
absolute time to complicate the relativeversusabsolute issue. Time is an
abstraction by which we compare changes or motions of anything —anything
whatsoever. Motion is real; time is merely an abstracted aspect of motion
(change). ... Aristotle and Heraclitus were right, everything is motion. 
My present revised paper emphasizes the distinction between “the relativistic
and the absolute.” I have added the following paragraphs.
“However, it is important to realize that each ESR equation is not a special
case of the corresponding DSSU equation. It is by no means obvious, but both
equations give the same answer; they must because they both represent the same
observed or observable phenomena —such as apparent velocity, apparent length
contraction, apparent time dilation and apparent momentum, and so on.”
“Then it must be that both relativistic expressions are general. The DSSU
expressions always use aetherreferenced velocities and, within its domain, DSSU
relativity is general. The ESR expressions always use purely relative velocities
and, within its domain ESR, too, is completely general.”
The DSSU relativity theory, although it is a relativisticaether theory, does
not merge the absolute (defined by the aether) with the relative (the apparent).
Instead of merging the two domains, it uses simple rules and “the key” (see
Flowchart 2, above) to switch from one domain to the other.
Why is all this so important? ... It means there is no need to claim that ESR
is wrong. (Saying that a theory is incomplete does not make it wrong.) It means
that within its domain, within its sphere of applicability, there is nothing
wrong with Einstein’s special relativity.
In conclusion, with the various additions and corrections that have been made
in the latest revision the Paper has emerged much stronger. Furthermore, a
number of important changes should dispel any notion that I am attempting to
invalidate the ESR theory.
A reassessment would be appreciated.
Sincere thanks,
