Evolution of the theory of light
theorized the transmission of material particles, or corpuscules, sent off in
all directions from luminous bodies, traversing space, in right lines, with the
velocity of approxiamately 186,300 miles per second.
Newton argued that the geometric nature
of reflection and refraction of light could only be explained if light was made
of particles, referred to as corpuscles, because waves do not tend to travel in
Newton sought to disprove Christiaan Huygens' theory
that light was made of waves.
The theory of the nature of light known as
the undulatory or wave theory consisted of the propagation of vibrations or
undulations in a subtile, elastic medium, or ether, known to pervade all space,
and to be thus set in vibratory motion by the action of luminous bodies, as the
atmosphere is by sonorous bodies.
The currently accepted theory,
electro-magnetic theory of light, most accurately describes the properties of
light as a form of electro-magnetic oscillations.
Michelson-Morley experiment is the prelude to the theory of
Albert Michelson attempted to detect the passage of Earth
through the Ether with the use of an
interferometer an instrument he invented.
At that time it was postulated the
propagation of waves needed a medium.
Sound travels through the
medium of air.
It was theorized light waves from the sun travel through
the medium of Ether.
difference in the measured speed of the to-and-fro motion of a light beam
within the interferometer will be caused by the forward motion of the earth
during the light beam's time of transmission. The difference in light speed
will cause a "fringe shift" to be seen in the interferometer.
shift could be detected !
Theoretical physics was no longer unified
To solve the problem Einstein 'postulated' the speed of light is a
constant, like Plank's constant irrespective of the motion, not just of the
light source, but also of the
Observer" part is very hard to accept. "A
sound wave travels at a constant speed in air (of a given temperature and
density) whatever the motion of the sound source. Sound from an airplane
travels forward at a speed that is unaffected by the speed of the plane.
But if you travel toward that approaching sound wave then you must add
your speed to that of the plane's sound wave if you are to know the speed with
which it approaches you.
that the simple "addition of velocities" that applies to sound does not hold
true for light.
Light waves approach us at the same speed whether we
travel toward or away from that light beam.
Einstein didn't observe
this - he postulated it.
Einstein said: "Let's
assume it is
What follows from it? Well, speed is distance divided by time.
When you move toward that light beam, which (Einstein said) always approaches
at a constant speed irrespective of how you (the
Observer) move, then space must contract, and time must dilate to exactly
the extent that is needed to ensure that the light approaches at an
ever-constant speed. It's a bizarre claim. What Einstein did was take the
fundamentals of physics, space and time, and argue that they must be
subordinated to a velocity." -Tom Bethell
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
