Part Two: The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space Correcting a Major Error in Modern Science
Written by James DeMeo, PhD
This is Part Two summarizing James DeMeo’s new book indicating that modern cosmology erred in hastily dismissing the evidence for a cosmic ether. Part One is here.
In my search to understand why the positive results of the Michelson-Morley-Miller experiments had been so systematically ignored or misrepresented by astrophysics, and treated with dismissive abuse by the followers of Einstein, I uncovered a series of additional optical interferometer experiments by other researchers which gave considerable support to the ether.
In 1928, Michelson-Pease-Pearson detected a 6 km/sec ether velocity, but dismissed it as being too low (repeating again the error of Newtonian static-ether theory). Michelson’s Irvine Ranch “speed of light” experiment of 1930-1931 (again with Pease and Pearson) found an inexplicable, persisting variation in their measures “with an average deviation of 11 km/sec from the mean”.
The Kennedy-Thorndike experiment (image above) of 1932 detected a light-speed variation of from 10 to 24 km/sec, but dismissed it with the incredible statement that…
“In view of the relative velocities amounting to thousands of kilometers per second known to exist among the nebulae, this can scarcely be regarded as other than a clear null result.” (DeMeo Dynamic Ether 2019, p.145-164)
Then there was the work of Georges Sagnac, who in 1913-1914 detected the ether in light-speed variations on a rotating table-top interferometer, proving that c+v was greater than c–v, and laying the basis for the modern optical gyroscopes.
More recent scientists, such as Hector Munera in Bolivia, Yuri Galaev in the Ukraine, and Reginald Cahill in Australia, also detected the cosmic ether wind using modern equipment, blowing across a very similar set of cosmic coordinates as determined earlier by Miller at Mount Wilson. (DeMeo Dynamic Ether 2019 p.167-184)
Taken together, the 11 successful ether-drift experiments I reviewed show an altitude-velocity dependency of around 1 km/sec of ether velocity increase for every 150 meters of altitude. (DeMeo, Dynamic Ether, 2019, p.186) Meanwhile, the unsuccessful ether-drift experiments I reviewed were found to be based upon seriously Newtonian static-ether assumptions which affected their experimental designs.
Such experiments were undertaken in basements of heavy stone buildings or inside metal pipes, and at low altitudes. A few were undertaken at higher altitudes but with extremely short light paths, and heavy metal covers over their instruments. Often as not, they detected an ether-drift signal, but dismissed it as too low to be of significance.
My investigations also uncovered 17 additional, independently detected cosmic “winds”, mostly accepted by modern astronomy, all of which had sidereal azimuths and declinations within the same small region of the cosmos as identified by the ether-drifters.
This “drifting-wind” region and direction is roughly bounded by the northern pole of the solar system’s ecliptical plane, ranging over RA 16 to 19 hours sidereal, and down towards the star Vega, whose RA of ~18.5 hours roughly aligns with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. The region is identified generally by the constellations of Draco, Lyra and Hercules, in the northerly declinations.
These 17 winds include the interstellar wind, cosmic ray anisotropy, neutrino wind, dark matter wind, the Planet 9 gravitational anomaly, and the ether-drift vectors as determined by Miller, Galaev, Munera and a few others. In most cases, the theoretical models used by the modern ether researchers are quite different from the dynamic gravitational cosmic ether as I advocate, but their experimental results are nevertheless congruent with it.
Also there are similar cosmic determinations from outside of astronomy, as with the cosmic biological clock discovery of biologist Frank Brown, the cosmic water-activation discovery of chemist Giorgio Piccardi, and the banned and burned research of the widely-slandered 20th Century heretic Wilhelm Reich, whose objectively discovered cosmic life energy moved along similar vectors of celestial motion. This latter group of researchers expands our understanding of the cosmic ether, to be something reactive with water and biology.
While all these 17 different cosmic winds are given separate explanations by modern astrophysics, with some being attacked and ignored, or generally unknown, my book provides a reasoned and evidence-based overview, and logical argument (with some of my own experimental evidence) that…
they are all misunderstood expressions of a material and dynamic, gravitationally active cosmic ether wind, which also has chemical and biological influences upon the Earth, atmosphere, chemistry and living matter.
It is interesting that the cosmic motions described here do not agree with the CMBR anisotropy at Leo, which is about 90˚ off from the collective 17 determinations. The CMBR is therefore most likely an intrinsically warmer spot in the cosmos, though of an exceedingly tiny quantity (+/– 0.00057˚K), and not a factor related to cosmic motions.
By comparison, a ~10 km/sec ether-wind velocity, with these additional correlated vectors, appears as a more significant and “ponderable” quantity, and yet it was nearly erased from the history of science. Given widespread disciplinary blinders and biases, my findings on the correlations between these different cosmic motional axes have heretofore gone unnoticed.
Modern astrophysical theory, including Einstein’s relativity, the big-bang singularity, redshifts as distance indicators, quantum entanglements, black holes and a whole lot more, all take a devastating blow from these findings. They cannot be reconciled, at the basic foundation level, with a universe filled with a cosmic ether having measurable properties and a preferred direction of motion.
This is so, even as the empirical, experimental findings and direct observations from astronomy, the space program, engineering and materials science, remain with us, unchallenged, as solid facts. One must separate out empirical facts, from theories about facts. Facts are immutable, while theories change as new factual evidence is uncovered.
I also determined that none of the observations claimed to support Einstein’s theory of relativity are unequivocal. For example, a cosmic ether in dynamic spiral vortex motion, with a variable density that increases close to planetary or stellar masses, appears to be the best and most simple explanation for the perihelion shift of Mercury, and for the refractive bending of starlight near to the Sun.
Both might be understood from Einstein’s metaphysics, but he demands we accept the falsehood that space is empty of anything like a cosmic ether with specific measurable properties, where the speed of light could be influenced. Einstein himself stated this in his early 1905 paper (“On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”), then later in his 1920 speech at Leiden University in the Netherlands (“Ether and the Theory of Relativity”), and finally in worried sentences to his associates only a year later, when Dayton Miller’s early Mount Wilson experiments produced a strong positive ~10 km/sec ether drift.
“I believe that I have really found the relationship between gravitation and electricity, assuming that the Miller experiments are based on a fundamental error. Otherwise, the whole relativity theory collapses like a house of cards.”
— Albert Einstein, letter to Robert Millikan June 1921
“My opinion about Miller’s experiments is the following. … Should the positive result be confirmed, then the special theory of relativity and with it the general theory of relativity, in its current form, would be invalid. Experimentum summus judex. Only the equivalence of inertia and gravitation would remain, however, they would have to lead to a significantly different theory.”
— Albert Einstein, letter to Edwin Slosson, 8 July 1925.
What has changed since the time when Einstein worriedly wrote how Miller’s work, even at the “low” variation in light speed of ~10 km/sec, would destroy his theory of relativity? Nothing has changed! Except today few scientists even know about it. And we have even more evidence to affirm the cosmic ether and direction-dependent variations in light speed.
Even the modern LIGO/ALIGO experiments (above), applying gigantic Michelson interferometers, are not immune to criticisms along the lines of the original positive ether-drift experiments. The LIGO/ALIGO detections may harbor a hidden systematic sidereal signal verifying the “ordinary” ether-drift variations in light speed, if they dared to look for it.
And their more isolated “gravitational wave” events may simply be an expression of severe ether-wind turbulence, possibly associated with cosmic factors, but detected by variations in light speed. Such heresy is incomprehensible from the viewpoints of an ether-less “empty space”, but it makes reasonable good sense within a universe filled with a material and dynamic cosmic ether, with gravitational properties. (DeMeo, Dynamic Ether 2019, p.298-304)
Likewise, the various claims about “black holes” and MACHOs (Massive Compact Halo Objects) become unnecessary metaphysics, given a dynamic ether wind able to interact with planetary, stellar and galactic matter, thereby imparting gravitational effects upon them.
A singular material dynamic ether in spiraling vortical motions, with consequently gravitational properties, is the most simple explanation, thereby making it unnecessary to salt-up the universe with never-observed black holes (I critically debunk the M87 black hole image claim in the book, p.328) or MACHOs.
As to WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles), something is detectible within NaI(Tl) scintillators, but strangely shows an unexpected seasonal variation in abundance, interpreted as a velocity variation and termed the “dark matter wind” (as from the Bernabei San Grasso experiments). I argue, this too is an expression of cosmic ether wind. (DeMeo, Dynamic Ether 2019, p.283-287, 324-330)
The cosmic ether changes everything! And by Occam’s Razor, it is the most simple and singular explanation for understanding the modern empirical observations of astronomy, even as the major theories of modern astrophysics are exposed as deeply flawed and extremely complicated metaphysics. They postulate mystery objects or events that have never been, and cannot ever be directly observed.
I am reminded in this case of an unforgettable 1980 lecture I attended at the University of Kansas Physics Department, where Nobel Prize winner Arno Penzias, who helped to discover the 3˚K CMBR, stated that “before the big bang, space, matter, time and energy did not exist”!
How agreeable is this persisting theory of Big Bang Creationism, firstly proposed by the Catholic priest and physicist George Lemaitre (pictured above with Einstein), to the Biblical creation story, except in elapsed time? Does astrophysics deny the cosmic ether for reasons of theological belief? Surely, if you dare question it, then you become a heretic to be attacked, censored and thrown out of the Church of Astrophysics! Indeed, the astrophysical emperors still wear no clothes!
The above discussions summarize or are extracted from chapters of my new book, The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space: Correcting a Major Error in Modern Science, with over 100 historic photos and graphical illustrations, full index and 16 pages of citations.
This work reflects my own ~40 years of investigation into questions on cosmic ether drift, the nature of space, and other findings in astronomy, chemistry and biology, which all speak to the issue of just what exists within the vacuum of so-called “empty space”. It is developed for the educated layperson and student, with minimal maths, but most scientific professionals will find it eye-opening and refreshing, speaking of things they also were never taught in the universities.
