    https://phys.org/news/2018-07-einstein-againweak-strong-gravity-fall.html Einstein's understanding of gravity, as outlined in his general theory of relativity, predicts that all objects fall at the same rate, regardless of their mass or composition. This theory has passed test after test here on Earth, but does it still hold true for some of the most massive and dense objects in the known universe, an aspect of nature known as the Strong Equivalence Principle? An international team of astronomers has given this lingering question its most stringent test ever. Their findings, published in the journal Nature, show that Einstein's insights into gravity still hold sway, even in one of the most extreme scenarios the Universe can offer. extract: In 2011, the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Green Bank Telescope (GBT) discovered a natural laboratory to test this theory in extreme conditions: a triple star system called PSR J0337+1715, located about 4,200 light-years from Earth. This system contains a neutron star in a 1.6-day orbit with a white dwarf star, and the pair in a 327-day orbit with another white dwarf further away. Through meticulous observations and careful calculations, the team was able to test the system's gravity using the pulses of the neutron star alone. They found that any acceleration difference between the neutron star and inner white dwarf is too small to detect.

In contrast to almost all alternative theories of gravity2, the strong equivalence principle of general relativity requires universality of free fall to apply even to bodies with strong self-gravity. Direct tests of this principle using Solar System bodies3,4 are limited by the weak self-gravity of the bodies, and tests using pulsar–white-dwarf binaries5,6 have been limited by the weak gravitational pull of the Milky Way. PSR J0337+1715 is a hierarchical system of three stars (a stellar triple system) in which a binary consisting of a millisecond radio pulsar and a white dwarf in a 1.6-day orbit is itself in a 327-day orbit with another white dwarf. This system permits a test that compares how the gravitational pull of the outer white dwarf affects the pulsar, which has strong self-gravity, and the inner white dwarf. Here we report that the accelerations of the pulsar and its nearby white-dwarf companion differ fractionally by no more than 2.6 × 10−6. For a rough comparison, our limit on the strong-field Nordtvedt parameter, which measures violation of the universality of free fall, is a factor of ten smaller than that obtained from (weak-field) Solar System tests3,4 and a factor of almost a thousand smaller than that obtained from other strong-field tests5,6.

    I think you are engaging in wishful thinking. You certainly have no valid evidence for your position. Pensions are also only affordable because of technology, so... There's something fundamentally silly about using the internet to slag off technology.

    That is not for everyone. I was asking if the OP had lost his job to a robot or something. I was wondering why he felt that way. Ideally the robots would do the jobs we do not want to do.... in practice though they will probably just do the jobs where it is cheaper to have them do it.

    What is the data supporting the idea that automation is taking jobs at a rate faster than technology and the abundance created by automation can replace them?

    If by real you mean measurable then yes. Physics doesn't have a definement for real we leave that to metaphysics.

    What the QFT defines as the electron in terms of the Operators involved under spinor and vector quantities will transfer. The values of the field will change locality

    All advanced theories must be reducible and correspond to classical laws. This is the Principle of correspondence. X posted with Strange.

    Well, they “behave” identically; it is just the mathematical description is different.

    Yes that is a simplified way of describing it.

    Your really not getting it, the term particle is a misnomer under QFT. This is specifically what the Hobson paper talks about. Hence its very title in the paper. There are no Particles, there is only fields.. Under QFT the coulomb force is described as the flow of polarization vectors

    It might help if you think of the Triboelectric effect as a exchange of charge not an exchange of electrons, There is a distinction, for example in a wire the flow of electrons is slow but the flow of charge is at c. The flow of charge is described by polarizations here is a basic classical article on how electrostatics work when the electric field is treated as a VECTOR Field. Noted in article. http://www.phys.ufl.edu/~korytov/phy2049/old_notes/all_chapters.pdf I also hope the Hobson paper taught you to not think of particles as a material ie corpuscular little bullets.... Solid is an illusion this is a needed shift in thinking to understand modern treatments of particles. The term particle is maintained for historical reasons but often leads to the incorrect images of what is described as a particle. This is one of the issues the Hobson paper addresses.

    ! Moderator Note Yes, it is. You have failed to adequately support your arguments in this speculative thread, and have ignored repeated requests for clarity and answers to simple questions. You've had 3 pages to persuade the membership about the validity of your idea, and now seem to just be preaching and not listening. That's not a discussion, that's a blog. This thread is closed. Do NOT bring this topic up again.

    ok beecee I see you use picture with statements. What truth do you espouse? I don't tie myself to the Kabalists Catholic Satanic Popes and his bishops. They are the medium of the devil. I admit I was baptized Catholic, but I don't need a church to believe in Jesus.

    Mans love affair with technology has left us with greater emptiness, suffering, loneliness than ever before. True these tools enable a greater population to exist on earth; but is that a plan for a greater tax base which feeds a more sinister technological development?. Today many people run the gauntlet of the world behaving like rats chasing invisible cheese pouring most of their fruits of labor into a machine which fosters a agenda of the clandestine few. Sadly many of the young are blind while in the search for recognition through cell phones and some of their peers have committed suicide and gun violence in cries for attention. America is so fat from choking on Monsanto food driving misery to all time highs. Never before has man stood at the precipice of total annihilation of every living thing on earth through a mutual nuclear holocaust. Seeing the current state of mans environmental technological mayhem, just what is this clandestine agenda? What if this secret Cabal of the few? This philosophy is so dark that it pervades every cultural endeavor of all the societies today. And if I open the curtain for Dorothy would you believe this current philosophy of destruction. I cannot tell you that this oligarchies Cabal is for mans benefit! So just what did Oppenheimer quote from the Bhagavad-Gita? This agenda and technological approach comes from fear and a longing to escape a punishment by hidden entities in the background. To put light on this philosophy of death, man has been used for destruction and in a broader sense not only this world, but quite possibly the universe. Just what would cause this, a collision between electrons, at a supercollider? What is the goal of man with his love affair of technology? Have we really asked this question? Do the investments of today indicate a direction of tools for our benefit or selfishness which lead to a universal implosion? Were are most of the funds going? It is the search for collisions and not the tech to soar off to Alpha Centauri. Only some spiritual event will head off this current state of ignorance in humanity! What are your thoughts? https://www.newscientist.com/round-up/antimatter-mysteries/

    I had a real odd dream last night and part of it included a lizard man reptilian on CNN along with Satan. The dream was vivid and so I went looking for an image of Satan on the net. By the way in my dream I had this odd feeling in my dream after the CNN clip that Satan was after me; because I fight against him and I deeply believe in God. So knowing his image this is what I found. https://voynichcipher.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/poisedhugeeider-size_restricted.gif?w=488 God in Heaven and his angels, but one rebelled and took a third with him to fight a war with God and the remaining 2/3's Angels. Imagine a war in heaven where telepathy is the form of communication and It makes you wonder the immense suffering on both sides fighting these pitched battles from these heights of knowing each others mind. Yes war occurs on earth much later perhaps a millennia and this is where Lucifer ended up as Satan. The Angel with the most appealing looks and charisma, superior in knowledge then most of the Angels, limited in total knowledge brought not only misery to Heaven but to earth as well . Lucifer once the light or guardian of fire walked in its midst and knew secrets about matter and science. Satan said to himself he would ascend the throne room of God and be God, but he forgot that God was listening to his inner belief systems through telepathy. During the war Satan decided to cause Adam and Eve to sin out of his hatred for God and jealousy of Adam. However the Bible also mentions Satan's ability to come and go to earth and that there may have been another few civilizations on earth prior to Adam and Eve. Because through the abundance of trade and violence Lucifer became corrupt and longed to be God. With all that Lucifer/Satan has done, only one could save us and that is God's son. The universe will eventually end whether you are an atheist or believer. Half of the galaxies are already dead so that being said if an atheist believes the universe has approximately 13 billion years left. A believer would be closer to a millennia. The reason I know this is that Trump will start up construction of the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem either in Zion or the Temple Mount in the Fall of 2018. Satan's goes to the pit on 6/6/2022 at 6 a.m. Don't worry God has main plans for and eternal Heavens and Earth. Further on here I'm going off topic: I see the universe through dielectric field interaction acting through the aether instantaneously. I don't agree with Newton or Einstein at all. Newton was a Free Mason so did Satan turn him and Einstein from the truth promising them fame and fortune. Did he offer that to Tesla, but Tesla said no so Satan then Satan made Tesla go into obscurity and made him go broke? Satan may for some reason have everything now, but funny he is ugly, vile and disgusting looking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tBJao0pmSA https://voynichcipher.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/whatsapp-image-2018-02-27-at-16.jpg?w=680

    Utter nonsense if you really understand the universe you would ascribe to and all encompassing electric one based on fields. The pseudoscience pervades physics to the core! https://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/daily-tpod/
