Default LIGO's Gravitational Waves: Triumph of Post-Sanity Science

"Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true," said the great Danish physicist Niels Bohr. Enter Sir Roger Penrose. Correlated noise in the two LIGO gravitational-wave detectors may provide evidence that the universe is governed by Conformal Cyclic Cosmology (CCC) which assumes that the universe consists of a succession of aeons, “the boundaries of infinity,” says Penrose of the University of Oxford. [...] Physicists at the Niels Bohr Institute, writes Hamish Johnston, editor of, pointed out that some of the noise in the two LIGO detectors appears to be correlated – with a delay that corresponds to the time it takes for a gravitational wave to travel the more than 3000 kilometers between the instruments."

In a sane science, "correlated noise" can only be an artifact - a byproduct of LIGO's imperfect faking procedure. In post-sanity science, "correlated noise" is just a premise from which incredible idiocy can be deduced.

Einstein committed two sins in 1905:

1. Advanced the nonsensical constant-speed-of-light postulate that he had "borrowed" from the nonexistent ether.

2. Introduced non sequitur - ASYMMETRIC time dilation (moving clock is slow, stationary one is fast) - knowing that his two postulates entailed SYMMETRIC time dilation (either clock is slow as judged from the other clock's system).

Physics succumbed to the malignancy and died - leads a zombie life nowadays.. Resurrection is possible (if it's not too late). See a suggestion for an Einstein-free physics in a series of tweets he
