Fresh Thinking About Redshift

Let’s talk about redshift and its causes from the perspective of the Neoclassical Physics and Quantum Gravity model. NPQG leads to an in-depth and insightful understanding of redshift, or more generally photon energy transactions.

A New Model for BL-LAC Blazars with Help from Planck and Arp

We can now say with confidence that we have a new parsimonius model for BL-LACs: Planck plasma terminus. No more bending over backwards to model BL-LACs as being aimed towards the observer to explain the superluminality. Nope. The jet may truly be superluminal. General relativity DOES NOT APPLY to Planck plasma and it pierces spacetime.

Quantum Gravity

Imagine that spacetime is an æther of low energy particles (low energy photons, neutrinos, gravitons, and/or axions). The wave function of the dipoles comprising the neutral shells of neighboring particles would interact with an ebb and flow of continuous energy, not a discrete transfer of energy. The outstanding energy from each particle of matter-energy would […]

NPQG Math

Scientists, skeptics, and critics often ask me “where’s the math?” when I describe Neoclassical Physics and Quantum Gravity. It turns out that is a complex and nuanced question to answer.

Physicists Debate Hawking’s Idea That the Universe Had No Beginning

Update: This is a review and commentary on Natalie Wolchover’s June 6, 2019 Quanta Article “Physicists Debate Hawking’s Idea That the Universe Had No Beginning.”

Religion Meet NPQG

I have always taken the position that I do not believe in mythical beings, including any conjured gods or supernatural spirits. This rules out the beliefs of religions. Furthermore, I think it is very clear that religions have spawned an incredible amount of toxic behavior throughout history and in the modern world from terrorism to […]

Alternative Physics and Cosmology Projects for Students

I remember my kids doing this kind of project in history and it seemed really interesting to think through ideas of how different decisions or outcomes might have changed history.

A Neoclassical Model of Nature

1.     INTRODUCTION A neoclassical model of nature is proposed for thought experiments, based upon two equal and opposite fundamental particles. These particles may also be considered as conserved immutable excitations. This model is derived from thought experiment and re-interpretation of modern physics and cosmology.  2.     MODEL FOUNDATION AND CONJECTURE The model is described affirmatively as conjecture. Where […]

Spacetime is a Particulate Æther

A year ago, January 2018, I began developing a model and narrative of nature that now surpasses general relativity, quantum mechanics, and modern physics in its understanding of nature. I aimed at parsimony, with an intuition that Maxwell’s equations might rule over all and that Einstein’s spacetime concept might be based upon a physical æther […]

The Physics and Cosmology Narratives are Wrong

There are two types of fundamental particles, equal and opposite, 1/6 charge, and let’s call them the electrino and positrino. They are jetted as a Planck sphere plasma from the core of galactic supermassive black holes (SMBH). As the plasma cools, decays, inflates, and reacts it forms standard matter. Some of the standard matter is […]

Is There a Physical Æther?

I am building a narrative model to explore the idea of Einstein’s spacetime as a physical aether of neutral particles that are composed of equal numbers of fundamental electrinos and positrinos (one or more pairs). In most of the universe this aether has very low energy and is very lightly interacting. It is ironic that […]
