History of science

Has science taken a wrong turn? If so, what corrections are needed? Chronicles of scientific misbehavior. The role of heretic-pioneers and forbidden questions in the sciences. Is peer review working? The perverse "consensus of leading scientists." Good public relations versus good science.

According to mainstream there is no space/time.
So if there is no space, how can there be a vacuum?
And if there is no space and no time, how can there be speed?

We know about refraction here on Earth. But outside, in space all light path bending is caused by, and is proof of relativity. Even if there is "hot gas" as they say, practically everywhere.

Because there is no way to tell if relativity or refraction did the bending, and relativity has to always be praised, they just ignore refraction in space. There is no refraction in space, it's an unique phenomenon, it happens only on Earth. I dare anyone to ask about refraction in space on a mainstream forum. There isn't any. And if there is, someone can surely differentiate refraction from relativity, and we are stupid to ask.

Yes. Space is special, and very different from earth.
That is why there are no electrical fields, nor electrical currents in space.
No refraction and reflection either.
And all normal matter is visible.
And light-frequencies are never affected by anything, even when we can do it on earth.

And because of that we know that dark energy exist, dark matter, and impossibly huge structures in space.
Black holes and big bangs.
No proof needed, because space is special.

Space is so special, that even the astronomers have become special. :mrgreen:

The issue that I see is whether mainstream or officially acceptable Science has in effect been captured and controlled by the means and will to do so.
This is the idea that the theories that 'win', do so by their usefulness to power or people and institutions of influence.

Because power struggle is the very nature of a split mind (polarised separation as the seeming independent self-other), the nature of our consciousness is predicated on possession and control - which is of marketising and weaponising the new as an upstream advantage by which to capture or dominate under the guise of a progress serving humanity.

Of course there is the love of truth and of our fellow Man - that is represented in scientists and others who follow their curiosity and intuition to challenge and explore beyond the current sense of self and reality. These are generally denied in their own time. While those who are celebrated while alive tend to be adopted and aligned with power, prestige and privilege.

Pasteur set a course for 'germ theory' that largely ignores the terrain or environmental context. Beschamp was sidelined. Eventually the wrong turning will be revisited - but against the momentum of invested energy, identity and reputations that stand on the shoulders of giant mistakes.

Ancel Keys - a chemist - set the cholesterol con and the demonisation of saturated fats in motion - very conveniently for the sugar lobby - and with heavy Media support. High carb malnutrition and toxicity became 'health guidelines'.

It isn't that there are not learned critics to new ideas that become officially 'true' but that a persistent and cleverly crafted PR can and does override any reasoned argument.

Celebrity status carries more weight than facts - for the same reason that fantasy fulfilment distorts the mind to want it true and not want truth to get in the way of a good story.

Knowingly or otherwise - the presentation of science - along with its adoption or applications in human affairs remains a politically directed narrative - not in terms of left or right - but in terms of power, possession and control.

At a level of a greater perspective I see the incremental expansions of our consciousness as a guided or supported process of reintegration. And so that for which we are not ready, does not come through - although its precursors or foundations may well be seeded by those who seem to be 'before their time' or denied acceptance in idea and contribution.

The Electric Universe opens technologies of a capacity to influence for good and ill.
Are we in a playpen or straitjacket because we have not owned our full consciousness - and are thus re-enacting destructive 'greed' and 'power' as subconsciously acquired conditioning?

I am well aware that deceit plays a much larger role than the deceived usually ever come to realize - and yet I am also aware that the wish not to know is, an expression of freedom - even though it effectively abnegates responsibility to 'beliefs' that mask or substitute for true by the intensity of the wish that feared truth remains hidden.

I saw a TV-lecture about Einstein yesterday.
It was a mixture of theories and short movie-clips.
Relativity was not explained clearly.
It was very chaotic and left each spectator dumbfounded.
It also said that the resistance against Einstein were only the Nazis.

While the spectators were impressed, it appeared to me as pure propaganda.
Nobody had learned anything.

You have to believe these theories that you can "never comprehend",
because you are never as smart as Einstein.
Not because they were explained so badly.

And if you are doubting Einstein, then you are a Nazi.

The lecture also told why this was:
And Germany was a scientifically very advanced state.
But due to the tensions, Einstein had fled Germany.
And he was immediately given an important place at a University.
He was also made very popular in many newspapers.

So it seems to me that this scientific promotion was not due to
his scientific results, but due to the propaganda machine that
made the UK and US ready for another war.

It had nothing to do with science.

"No Shadow of a Doubt: The 1909 Eclipse that Confirmed Einstein’s Theory of Relativity"
(where is the actual down-to-earth science?)

More political history:
Here is a talk about the history of World War 1, and how its
real history was destroyed to hide who really had created
the war.
History Is Written By The Winners

I think that the same propaganda machine has promoted Einstein to god-status.
And did later the same with Feynmann and Hawkins.

Sam Tolver Preston was an interesting guy.

since science is the investigation into the truth there is a certain inevitability to it.
