The Michelson and Morley 1887 Experiment and the Discovery of Abso...

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: Physics textbooks assert that in the famous interferometer 1887 experiment to detect absolute motion Michelson and Morley saw no rotation-induced fringe shifts - the signature of absolute motion; it was a null experiment. However this is incorrect. Their published data revealed to them the expected fringe shifts, but that data gave a speed of some 8 km/s using a Newtonian theory for the calibration of the interferometer, and so was rejected by them solely becaus...

Is Reality a Side Effect of Randomness?

By: Charles Gent

Physics Literature

Excerpt: Associate Professor Reg Cahill believes that the conventional theories of physics which attempt to describe reality are antiquated and fatally √ławed. He says the existing models in physics cannot - without cheating - account for the nature of time, the nature of quantum processes or, indeed, the existence of physical laws. After ten years of work, Flinders physicist Associate Professor Cahill, now working with current PhD students Chris Klinger and Kirsty Kitto,...

Analysis of Data from a Quantum Gravity Experiment

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: A new information-theoretic modeling of reality has given rise to a quantum-foam description of space, relative to which absolute motion is meaningful. In a previous paper (Cahill and Kitto) it was shown that in this new physics Michelson interferometers show absolute motion effects when operated in dielectric mode, as indeed all such experiments had indicated, and re-analysis of the experimental data showed that the measured speeds were all in agreement with t...

Absolute Motion and Quantum Gravity

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: A new information-theoretic modeling of reality has given rise to a quantum-foam description of space, relative to which absolute motion is meaningful. In a previous paper (Cahill and Kitto) it was shown that in this new physics Michelson interferometers show absolute motion elects when operated in dielectric mode, as indeed such experiments had indicated, and analysis of the experimental data showed that the measured speeds were all consistent with the Cosmic ...

Process Physics: From Information Theory to Quantum Space and Matter

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: This is a review of the new information-theoretic Process Physics. The fundamental assumption is that reality is to be modeled as self-organizing semantic or relational information using a self-referentially limited neural network model, where the information theoretic limitations are implemented via self-referential noise. This modeling was motivated by the discovery that such stochastic neural networks are foundational to known quantum field theories. In Proc...

Absolute Motion and New Gravitational Effects

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: The new Process Physics provides a new explanation of space as a quantum foam system in which gravity is an inhomogeneous flow of the quantum foam into matter. An analysis of various experiments demonstrates that absolute motion relative to space has been observed experimentally by Michelson and Morley, Miller, Illingworth, Torr and Kolen, and by DeWitte. The Dayton Miller and Roland DeWitte data also reveal the in-flow of space into matter which manifests as g...

Gravity as Quantum Foam In-Flow

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: The new information-theoretic Process Physics provides an explanation of space as a quantum foam system in which gravity is an inhomogeneous flow of the quantum foam into matter. The older Newtonian and General Relativity theories for gravity are analyzed. It is shown that Newtonian gravity may be written in the form of an in-flow. General Relativity is also analyzed as an in-flow, for those cases where it has been tested. An analysis of various experimental da...

Quantum Foam Gravity and Gravitational Waves

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: It is shown that both the Newtonian and General Relativity theories for gravity may be re-formulated as in-flow dynamics in which a substratum is effectively absorbed by matter, with the gravitational force determined by inhomogeneities of that flow. Analysis herein of the 1925-26 Dayton Miller interferometer data reveals such a gravitational in-flow of space past the Earth into the Sun. This data and that from the 1991 Roland DeWitte coaxial cable experiment a...

Quantum-Foam In-Flow Theory of Gravity and the Global Positioning ...

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: It is shown that a new quantum-foam in-flow theory of gravity is mathematically equivalent to the General Relativity theory of gravity for the operation of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The differences between the two theories become experimentally evident in other situations such as in the so-called ?dark matter? effect, in the observation of absolute motion and ipso facto in the observation of the in-flow motion into the sun, and in the observation of a...

Gravitation the Dark Matter Effect and the Fine Structure Constant

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: Gravitational anomalies such as the mine/borehole g anomaly, the near-flatness of the spiral galaxy rotation-velocity curves, currently interpreted as the ?dark matter? effect, the absence of that effect in ordinary elliptical galaxies, and the ongoing problems in accurately determining Newton?s gravitational constant GN are explained by a generalization of the Newtonian theory of gravity to a fluid-flow formalism with one new dimensionless constant. By analyzi...

Dark Matter as a Quantum Foam In-Flow Effect

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: The galactic ?dark matter? effect is regarded as one of the major problems in fundamental physics. Here it is explained as a self-interaction dynamical effect of space itself, and so is not caused by an unknown form of matter. Because it was based on Kepler?s Laws for the motion of the planets in the solar system the Newtonian theory of gravity was too restricted. A reformulation and generalization of the Newtonian theory of gravity in terms of a velocity in-flo...

Space and Gravitation

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: Space and Gravitation Space is that entity in which we find ourselves; we are located in space. But how should we categories space? Is it a ?thing? or is it a ?process?? From at least the early Greeks to the present day this question has been examined again and again, but has remained unanswered. However some recent discoveries have cast a new light on this essential core of existence, and the experimental evidence is strongly indicating that modern day physics ...

The Dynamical Velocity Superposition Effect in the Quantum-Foam In...

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: The new ?quantum-foam in-flow? theory of gravity has explained numerous so-called gravitational anomalies, particularly the ?dark matter? effect which is now seen to be a dynamical effect of space itself, and whose strength is determined by the fine structure constant, and not by Newton?s gravitational constant G. Here we show an experimentally significant approximate dynamical effect, namely a vector superposition effect which arises under certain dynamical co...

Novel Gravity Probe B Gravitational Wave Detection

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: The Gravity Probe B (GP-B) satellite experiment will measure the precession of on-board gyroscopes to extraordinary accuracy. Such precessions are predicted by General Relativity (GR), and one component of this precession is the ?frame-dragging? or Lense-Thirring effect, which is caused by the rotation of the earth, and the other is the geodetic effect. A new theory of gravity predicts, however, a second and much larger ?frame-dragging? or vorticity induced spi...

The Speed of Light and the Einstein Legacy: 1905-2005

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: That the speed of light is always c (√∑300,000 km/s) relative to any observer in nonaccelerating motion is one of the foundational concepts of physics. Experimentally this was supposed to have been first revealed by the 1887 Michelson-Morley experiment, and was made one of Einstein?s key postulates of Special Relativity in 1905. However in 2002 the actual 1887 fringe shift data was analyzed for the first time with a theory for the Michelson interferometer that u...

Engineering the Quantum Foam

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: In 1990 Alcubierre, within the General Relativity model for space-time, proposed a scenario for ?warp drive? faster than light travel, in which objects would achieve such speeds by actually being stationary within a bubble of space which itself was moving through space, the idea being that the speed of the bubble was not itself limited by the speed of light. However that scenario required exotic matter to stabilize the boundary of the bubble. Here that proposal...

Michelson-Morley Experiments Revisited and the Cosmic Background R...

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: We report a simple re-analysis of the old results from the Michelson-Morley interferometer experiments that were designed to detect absolute motion. We build upon a recent (1998) analysis of the original data by Munera, which revealed small but significant effects after allowing for several systematic errors in the original analysis. The further re-analysis here reveals that a genuine effect of absolute motion is expected, in what is essentially a quantum interf...
