In this video the alternative health professional tries to link her practice of using tuning forks to cure ailments to the plasma or electric universe theory. Several times during her talk she describes herself as being logical or skeptical. If something is studied scientific it has to be reproducible, that can be reproduced by someone else over and over and you should be able to falsify the results. This woman’s medical practice is based on that you can hear problems with the body by using a tuning fork and hearing for abnormal areas. It is also based off of chakras which are points on the body where ancient spiritual healers thinks where the body’s energy is focused. So by touching one of these areas, or sticking pins in those areas or waving hand over these areas can heal whatever ails you. Hear variation of this is to use tuning forks and hearing the sound that reflects off of that point to find out what is wrong with you. She claims to cure things like pain, anxiety and mostly emotional issues, Pain is hard to measure so it can be difficult test unlike measuring a tumor or you temperature when your ill. With most emotional troubles once you talk about with someone a lot of times it helps with those issues. To check if this works all you need to do is to test different tuning forks at different distances from the body, or different frequency tuning forks.
But then she goes into plasma/ electric gravity stuff. She goes into how sound is transmitted in space. Sound is not transmitted in space, there are particles in space but it is not dense enough to transmit sound. When astronomers say they can hear the sounds of space this is usually done by converting the light they receive into sound. Pulsars are often converted from radio waves to sound mostly for people to get the concept of what is happening. Sound does move thru stars and this cause the surface to get dimmer or brighter. The study of this movement is called either helioseismology for the sun or astroseismology for all the other stars. Sometimes the astronomers will convert this back to sound to show how the sound moves thru the star. But there is no way for these sound waves to be felt by people on the Earth. Also she goes on saying that there is a plasma field around the body, this would cause major interference for people going into MRI machines.
If you just feeling a bit down or have some anxiety and need a caring hear to listen to you she probably can help. I do not think she is out to scam people, she is just a person who went down the wrong paths of “knowledge”.
In this essay the author discusses http://www.holoscience.com/wp/elechis problems with the modern view with gravity and his imaginative and his unsupported by evidence of how gravity should work to fit his world view. He has a problem with the curvature of space time as explained in general relativity and the limit on the speed light by special relativity. Also he tries to rework what atoms and sub atomic particles describe in quantum mechanics.
One concept the author has an issue with and the resulting effects of it is that of mass. In his essay he states that the textbooks at the beginning of the century confused gravitational mass and inertial mass. Well I do not much about turn of the 20th century textbooks but mass is mass. What can be confused is mass and weight. Mass is the amount of matter something, weight is resulting force on the mass by a gravitational field generated by a larger body like the Earth. So if you went to moon you would have the same mass but weigh less.
In !915 Einstein published the General Theory of Relativity were he explained space and time were inter contacted into something called space time, A very simple way of viewing this is if you take a sheet and stretch it. If you place something of any mass and will make a depression in it, the more massive the object bigger the dent so the Sun would have a bigger dent then the Earth. If an object comes along it will want to go to the bottom of the dent but if it is travelling fast enough it will follow a circular path around the object or it could travelling fast enough to get the objects gravitational influence and make a curved path around the object. This dent is always there, so no matter how fast the object is coming in it will feel the influence as soon as it is within this dent.
Atoms are made up of three particles the electrons, protons and neutrons. The proton and the electron have been assigned a charge of +1 and -1 respectively, this is because of when and how they were detected. Over time it was discovered that proton and neutron were made out of smaller particles with charges that added up to either +1 and 0 respectively called quarks. The electron is not made up from smaller particles and sometimes referred as a point particle.
The reason for this primer on some physics is because the author of the essay wants to tear down all the work of hundreds of scientists and engineers so he can come up with a system that makes sense to him.
First the neutrons, protons and electrons are made up with smaller particles called subtrons. they also add up to either 0, +1 and -1 respectively. And the travel in circular path inside each subatomic particle. Also the subtrons in each particle line so there is a negative pole and positive pole and the line up so it is negative to positive, so lets say the bottom of your feet are negative and the earth is all positive so they are attracted to one another. He also claims this help explains things like when superconductor is cooled its levitates. Also to make this system to work he claims that light is not the ultimate speed things can travel at he also brings back aether as a medium for light to travel thru. In the real model of how light works it is a particle and a wave so it does not need something to travel thru. Also the aether is made from neutrinos as they are in is model the most decayed from of matter. Of course most of the experimental evidence contradicts most of this but since it does not make sense to the author and his followers, it all has to re invented just for them.
No I do not have a nice video or this is not written in the front of a car. This video shows that stars start off as white dwarfs and goes thru stages to eventually become planets and asteroids. Basically the star goes thru giant phases and makes molecules that goes to the center. So large giant stars are young version, the star gets smaller becomes a brown dwarf and then planets. One Whooping problem there is no evidence of this, Astronomers when they look at a star they measure the spectrum of the star. A large hot star would have a really different spectrum then a cooler star like our Sun. In the video they show the Earth as 10 billion years old but all the evidence points to about 4 billion years old. Also in other videos he explains a Beta Pictoris systems new planet as the planet being older than the star other being formed at the same time. They go on in saying planets were there before proto-planetery and that there are just clearing space as they go thru because can never get objects smashing together to make lager objects. Also in the beginning he states that there is a pulsar or quasar spinning giving off positive charge particles one direction and negative charge particles in the other. First of there pulsars and quasars are two different things. Second there a lot pulsars in our own galaxy so they are going to create more galaxies in our galaxy, going to get crowded. Another thing the particles which ever way is closest to the they are not going to travel to the other side of a star.
Most of the videos in this series either is insulting scientist or complaining that their ideas are not taking seriously by scientist. He trues to fight plate tectonics by saying that it just took over as an idea, there was a reason for it “EVIDENCE”. In another video he goes on how science is like a religion in that if you do not obey the laws they come up with you are kicked out. The laws of science were determined by observing what happened in nature people came up with a way of explaining it, most times we have had to go back and fix our ideas. Another piece of advice if you want scientist to talk to you like an equal stop with the insults.
Fifty years ago today a new myth was unleashed on the world. Instead of gods battling other gods or demons, it was humans fighting themselves, fight aliens or fighting demons inside themselves. Instead of using magical powers and objects they used their wits and machines that they built themselves. Instead of having magical beasts to fight or use they used mighty ships that were built by them, Instead of focusing how the gods created everything and fought, it was about how humans created their own future, a future where the most of the problems of the past were solved by humans like what skin color some people had or were they were from. It did use some of the themes from older myths and some religions. It explored some of the many worlds in this universe and even explored worlds in other universes. It did not stop at one series and kept on going into movies and several other series that explored many more worlds and meet many other civilizations. It has inspired many to ecplore strange new worlds and meet new civilizations, and hopefully in the future there won’t be as many places where no mans has gone before.
On the latest episode of the Merseyside Skeptics podcast Skeptics with a K, they discuss an energy saving device called z-energeia. This device claims to align the elections flowing thru the wires in your house to decrease the resistance in the wires, resulting in less electricity used and a lower electrical bill by rubbing the outside of panel with a wipe.
All atoms are made from three subatomic particles, electrons, protons and neutrons. The protons and neutrons make the nucleus in the center and the elections orbit the nucleus. Electrons can orbit only in certain orbits. This leaves one electron in the last level in a copper atom, these electrons are easily passed between atoms. To move the electrons thru the wire, power companies use turbines to spin giant magnets in the center of a large coil of wire to push the electron all in one direction. That is the classical view. The other view is that the electron is a wave but even in this view the magnet field aligns the electrons in one direction. Resistance happens when atoms absorb an electron and gives off a little heat. So basically wiping down the outside of the panel will do nothing.
I know there are plenty of places that explain how to do this but I will do it as well.
First the step is to get some potting soil, some pots and of course seeds. To start seeds the best thing to get is a set that comes with a tray with a bunch of small plastic or sometimes with disks that if you water them become pots. Also, will need some potting soil almost any will do. Then when you get home and it is warm enough to start them you should fill them about 75-80 % to the top like these.
The next step is to put a few seeds in each pot. Some big seeds like squash and pumpkins put about two seeds in each pot. Some of the smaller seeds you should put in few more because some the seeds wont germinate and later they can be seperated and put into individual pots.
After that is done cover the seeds with more potting soil.
After a couple weeks you should get a tray of plants that kind of look like this.
Place the the tray in a warm spot, does not have to in the light for until the come out of soil. Then place in a window, the best spot would have sun all day. Water as soon as you are done planting, the best way is to pour the water into the tray. The soil will absorb the water as it needs it, also it the seeds will not be be disturbed. Most plants have what referred to as seed leaves. These are actually inside the seed also are do not resemble the leaves that will the plant will eventually have. Plants of the same family such as peppers and tomatoes will have the same shape of seed leaves.
What are Shell Elliptical Galaxies
Galaxies come in three main types. One type are the irregular galaxies.these a giant blobs of stars and typical small galaxies. The nest are the spiral galaxies these have a central area with arms spiraling outward, the most famous of these is the Milky Way(us). The next type of galaxy are the elliptical galaxies, if you take a cross section it will look like an ellipse. The largest types of these lay in the middle large of clusters of galaxies and are made from the combination of smaller spiral galaxies. Some these galaxies appear to have shells around them. There are in three dimensions but do not cover the entire galaxy and are bluer than the galaxy they surround which means that they contain a lot of younger stars.
A study of galaxy NGC 3923 using the MegaCam on the CFH telescope in Hawaii has shown this galaxy has 42 shells around it. The team was looking for a shell predicted by MOND but the shell was not there. The team is saying they did not find the shell because the previous observations were in error.
One of the first steps in finding life outside of the solar system is to find a planet that life can call home. There have about 2000 planets found around other stars, some these are much larger of Jupiter and a few are the size asteroids. Location is also important because life on Earth needs liquid water, so astronomers assume the best places for life is were liquid water would exist. These areas around a star are called habitable zones. To find these planets there are two methods one is staring at a star hoping a planet passes in front of it, the Kepler space telescope was designed just to do this. The other method is the Doppler method, when a star is pulled away from you the light becomes redder and when the star approaches you the light appears bluer.
A new tool for finding these planets has been contracted by NASA to go on the WIYN 3.5 m telescope at Kitt Peak in Arizona. The NEID spectrograph, the name derive from the Tohona O’ordham tribes word for to visualize or discover, Kitt Peak resides on their land. The spectrograph was designed and being built by Penn State university.
For the first time astronomers have seen a star explode or go supernova. There are two different types of supernova. The first type is when material from the atmosphere of one star is drawn onto the surface of an orbit white Dwarf and after too much material lands on its surface it explodes. The second type is when at the end of a large stars life and runs out of material to burn it explodes.The stars that were caught in this very rapid process were 300 times the size of the sun at a distance of 700 million light years away and the other was 500 times the sun and 1.2 billion light years away. They were caught by the Kepler Space telescope, it was designed to look at a small patch of sky to see planets moving in front of the stars. Peter Garnavich and his team took advantage of this constant staring at the same patch of sky. In the field of view there were 500 galaxies with 50 trillion stars in them.
