Basically this is just a video version of the post I wrote recently wrote of the same title.
Oh, it never ends, does it… But indeed, it is hard at this point to deny the massive amount of material I have now come across which casts serious doubt on this theory which is so foundational to so much of our assumed modern scientific knowledge and technology. When I first heard Anthony Patch mentioning the electric model of the universe, vs. the gravitational model, when speaking about CERN, I was intrigued, but at the time was too busy processing so much of the other information that looking into the “electric universe” thing more or less got put on the back burner. But now that I’ve been neck-deep in looking into the matter of a globe vs. a flat earth, I’ve been inundated with eye-brow raising questions about the entire Newtonian/Einstein(ian?) paradigm itself.
Basically, what you begin to realize is that when it comes to guys like Einstein, sure he was a brilliant mathematician, but, that’s just the thing, he was a brilliant, mathematician…
Right along with a ball earth and Evolution from a “big bang”, gravity is something we are taught is unquestionable from the time we first start learning ABC’s and 123’s. We learn about Newton getting hit on the head with an apple, and then “discovering” gravity, and as elementary-age children we think to ourselves, “Wow, isn’t that kind of a ridiculously obvious thing to discover? Even us little kids know about that!” And funnily enough, the vast majority of us never give much thought to it after that as we move on into adulthood. Gravity is as obvious to all of us needing air to breathe, and if you’re going to question that, you might as well be questioning the reality of reality itself.
But of course, gravity is about so much more than what causes apples to hit the ground, or raindrops to fall. The entire Copernican, heliocentric model of the universe hinges upon it, needing an explanation for how a spheroidal planet could hold itself together, and how people and objects on all sides of it’s surface don’t just fall off or float away into space. You see, before pushing the concept of a vaccumous, infinite universe full of exploding stars and round planetary objects and orbital paths, “gravity” was simply the concept of “what goes up must come down”. “Up” and “down” were both true, absolute, universal directions, and for whatever reason, there is some force at work which is constantly pulling everything toward the latter. But Newton and Einstein weren’t just trying to explain that, they were trying to explain a universe in which nothing was fixed, (as in the arcane geo-centric model…), but rather where the earth, sun, moon and all the heavenly bodies were constantly spinning, moving, orbiting each other, yet all holding their relative trajectories and galactic relationships with one another in a staggeringly precise balance.
So, this is the assumed cosmological scenario to which a guy like Einstein is then essentially handed a piece of chalk and challenged to “make it make sense”. Explain how all this actually works, not by using the traditional scientific method of creating hypotheses, testing hypotheses, etc., (which we also learned about in school) but instead by basically building a “model” of various aspects of the universe using mathematics, and then you tinker with that model by playing around with different equations (equations that 99.999% of the world’s population couldn’t do themselves, no less). And if/when the really smart theoretical physicist is able to tinker with the model to where he manages to get the math to work? Then Eureka! Science has triumphed and now we understand how the universe works!
But of course, we don’t… We still don’t even know what gravity is, or how it actually works, apparently, but hey, we do have these really impressive looking equations on a black board for you to look at. Here, we printed them in a million text books for you. That should settle it. What? You’re still doubting? My, you’re an idiot… Well, how can you question our understanding of gravity when we had to use our vast understanding of it in order to send all those men to the moon and back? (oh, wait…) 😉
So, yeah…. That’s more or less the spot I’m standing in right now. Learning about how wonky all this gravity business really is, learning about how a guy like Tesla said he thought Einstein’s theories were nonsense, while busily setting out to invent practically half of the technological innovations we are all now using today on a daily basis. Interesting, don’t you think, that Tesla wound up destitute, his lab destroyed by arson, all his surviving files and experiments scooped up and locked away by rich, powerful folks and kept from the public for decades while Tesla was all but forgotten, meanwhile Einstein is Time magazine’s “Person of the Century” and gets a Nobel prize. Hmmmm… (I know, I know, supposedly Einstein didn’t win the Nobel for his theory of relativity, but whatever. It was mainly for his work in “photo-electrics”, interesting…) But you get the point.
It all just goes to make you wonder, when you start to learn just how interconnected and interdependent all these different streams of information that we’ve been “educated” with since childhood really are, and then start holding it up against the fake moon landings, and “bubbles” outside the ISS, and the air-brushed “photos” of earth, etc… Right now it’s sure making ME wonder, and making me think this whole “electric universe” idea might be well worth looking into much more…
And here is a great flat earth vs. globe earth vid I found today which has a really interesting segment talking about gravity (8:14-11:00), and the issues with the idea that the spin of the earth and gravity offset each other to keep everything/one in place, when of course, the earth is spinning exceedingly slower at the poles than it is on the equator, yet the gravitational pull is the same everywhere on Earth…
