Caltech: The Mechanical Universe

Many Internet forums have carried discussion of the Electric Universe hypothesis. Much of that discussion has added more confusion than clarity, due to common misunderstandings of the electrical principles. Here we invite participants to discuss their experiences and to summarize questions that have yet to be answered.

This is another example of the kind of video that needs to be generated to show the EU model of the Universe.

Carter Emmart demos a 3D atlas of the universe
http://www.ted.com/talks/carter_emmart_ ... verse.html
For the last 12 years, Carter Emmart has been coordinating the efforts of scientists, artists and programmers to build a complete 3D visualization of our known universe. He demos this stunning tour and explains how it's being shared with facilities around the world.
This is the video he is talking about.

The Known Universe by AMNH
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17jymDn0W6U

It is a remarkable video, but you can see from the EU perspective that it is deeply flawed.

This is the planetarium site and software.

This is another planetarium software that lets you build your own.

Another Hawking video

Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking
http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/stephen-haw ... about.html

This is the best description of the current gravity centered dogma, a beautiful fantasy.

BTW, the ball bearings in part 2 & 3 really freak me out, then in part 4, the image of the Earth being crushed into a black hole is deeply cool. Run that backwards and forwards a few times, and it will blow your mind. And the space ship in part 8 & 9 is fun.

Allyn,

Thanks very much for all these video sources. I'd never have found them on my own. We all owe you for this collection.

Thanks, Jim.

Remember that you can harvest a copy of these videos using easily available software for later viewing.

I use Firefox as the browser and FlashGot as the plug in.

Part 3 talks about seeing two black holes spinning around each other, one with a blue or red shift. Black holes are like subatomic particles. They are seeing something, but what.

The theory stuff is silly, but the actual observed stuff in part 2 & 3 needs to be explained by the EU guys.

Is time travel possible? wrote: We are all traveling into the future, at close to the speed of light.{Insert Mad Scientist Laugh}

Watch the deeply disturbing description about the GPS and atomic clocks, and the LHC. The farther away from the gravity field, the faster the clocks run. Yet when they talk about moving close to the speed of light, clocks slow down.

Yet is any of this true when you realize that the atomic clocks are electronic measurement of vibrating atoms. Would an actual mechanical clock, powered by a mechanical spring show any variation of time due to gravity or velocity.

The simple act of building a small capsule filled with swiss mechanical watches, putting it in a ring accelerator, spinning it up to speed, is the only way they can prove that time dilation actually happens.

Everything else in this episode is silly theory. They keep making statements of absolute fact, after saying it was theory, building on a foundation less firm than smoke. It is beautiful SciFi, but not empirical fact.

What Happened Before the Beginning? wrote: Standard current dogma. They even mention that in the first part.

In part 2 they make the bizarre statement that the first picture of the big bang, WMAP, was crystal clear. Then they mix not only apples with oranges, but apples and boots. They drop a paint balloon to demonstrate what an explosion looks like. Huh??? Then everything gets weird where part 3 talks about spaceTime atoms, making the universe cyclic, expanding and contracting.

Branes! We want your branes! Clearly they lost theirs in trying to define "M" theory. What saves them? Dark Energy, of course.

Why didn't I see that?

How did we get here? wrote: This episode is a summary of how life began. The history of Earth shown is the usual dogma. The story is radically different compared to EU and GET.

In part 1 they talk about early life from Greenland rock that the fossil life was made up of carbon 12 with no carbon 13. Based on transmutation of nitrogen to carbon and oxygen, that makes perfect sense, because there is no way for life to only choose one isotope to absorb.

Recovered: Transmutation on Stars, Planets etc
http://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpB ... &sk=t&sd=a

Part 2 & 3 show how a shock to basic amino acids combines them into more complex forms, then the episode got interesting. The Earth may have multiple trees of life. Then they talked about panspermia from Mars rocks, which is deeply disturbing if you look at it from the Saturn Event.

Beyond the Darkness wrote: Now here is where everything gets wacky again, with Dark Matter. I've been watching this nonsense get worse since the mid 80s. With each new explanation, things made less and less sense. They simply interpreted the empirical evidence wrong. This is where the EU stuff makes more sense.

Watch this episode from the beginning and you can see where they went wrong. They made assumptions from the start, then created massive computer models, then continued to misinterpret what they were actually seeing. The WIMP detector concept in part 3 is beyond scary. Looking for two interactions a year is madness, not science.

In part 4 they talk about Hubble and using a type 2 supernova as a standard candle. A rare event that they don't understand as the basis for measuring distance, thus the universe is expanding faster than ever, thus Dark Energy was born.

Part 5 trips out on Phantom Energy! Nooooo, I can't take it! "Save us Obi-Wan Kenobi, you are our only hope."
The series should be available in November 2010 on DVD.

National Geographic - Into the Lost Crystal Caves
http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/e ... b-Overview
NGC goes inside one of the greatest natural marvels on the planet - a giant crystal cave described as Superman's fortress, with magnificent crystals up to 36 feet long and weighing 55 tons. A team of experts venture into the cavern, enduring scorching-hot temperatures that could kill a human after just 15 minutes of exposure. They'll push the boundaries of physical limitation to explore a crevasse that could lead to another - and perhaps more spectacular - crystal cave.

Yes, that's the sad fact with the internet, so many links vanish over time.
Harvest them while you can.

BTW, In some cases if you search for similar names you can find the videos again. Sometimes they are still at the same site, but they moved them a bit so that the link doesn't point to the video anymore.

Watch the video. The style is simple, does not cost a lot of money, and actually works. If the EU guys can't afford TED style videos yet, this style is easily doable, and in some cases even preferred. The clarity is awesome.

Up in the Nature of astrophysics (II) - science and scientists thread, Goldminer mentioned the following link.

Track it down and read it ASAP.

Massive. Devastating.
