Default Einstein's Relativity in Disfavor

A Nobel Laureate panel will discuss their choices for "The Greatest Physics Discovery of the 20th Century." https://talks.ox.ac.uk/talks/id/d817...-64fdd0717165/

"Weinberg, Williams, and Leggett all chose quantum mechanics, Mather chose the expansion of the universe." https://twitter.com/JimBaggott/statu...56711516663810

Divine Albert's Divine Theory not chosen. Younger theoretical physicists are much more radical:

Joao Magueijo, Niayesh Afshordi, Stephon Alexander: "So we have broken fundamentally this Lorentz invariance which equates space and time [...] It's the other postulate of relativity, that of constancy of c, that has to give way..." https://youtu.be/kbHBBtsrU1g?t=1431

"You want to go back to a notion of space-time that preceded the 20th century, and it wants to ignore the essential lessons about space-time that the 20th century has taught us." Joao Magueijo: "Yes, that's right. So it's nouveau-Newtonian." At 53:31 he http://pirsa.org/displayFlash.php?id=16060116

Default Einstein's Relativity in Disfavor

In 2008 John Baez, a high priest in the Einstein cult, declared that physics was going schizophrenic and left Einstein's sinking ship:

John Baez: "Should I be thinking about quantum gravity? One of the big problems in physics - perhaps the biggest! - is figuring out how our two current best theories fit together. On the one hand we have the Standard Model, which tries to explain all the forces except gravity, and takes quantum mechanics into account. On the other hand we have General Relativity, which tries to explain gravity, and does not take quantum mechanics into account. Both theories seem to be more or less on the right track - but until we somehow fit them together, or completely discard one or both, our picture of the world will be deeply schizophrenic. [...] So, I eventually decided to quit working on quantum gravity." https://www.edge.org/response-detail/11356

Nowadays many Einsteinians leave Einstein's sinking ship and promptly become experts in quantum mechanics, AI, philosophy, consciousness, biology, meaning of life, climate science, anything:


If there is a next, Einstein-free version of fundamental physics, Einstein's 1905 nonsensical axiom

"The speed of light is constant"

will be replaced with the correct and easily justifiable axiom

"For a given emitter, the wavelength of light is constant".

I have developed the idea in a series of tweets he https://twitter.com/pentcho_valev

Philip Ball: "And by making the clock's tick relative - what happens simultaneously for one observer might seem sequential to another - Einstein's theory of special relativity not only destroyed any notion of absolute time but made time equivalent to a dimension in space: the future is already out there waiting for us; we just can't see it until we get there. This view is a logical and metaphysical dead end, says Smolin." http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2013...reality-review

"Was Einstein wrong? At least in his understanding of time, Smolin argues, the great theorist of relativity was dead wrong. What is worse, by firmly enshrining his error in scientific orthodoxy, Einstein trapped his successors in insoluble dilemmas..." https://www.amazon.com/Time-Reborn-C.../dp/B00AEGQPFE

"Fotini Markopoulou-Kalamara, a theoretical physicist at the Perimeter Institute, said, "I have the distressing experience of physicists telling me that time is not real. [...] It confuses me, because time seems to be real. Things happen. When I clap my hands, it happened. [...] I would prefer to say that general relativity is not the final theory than to say that time does not exist." http://www.space.com/29859-the-illusion-of-time.html

Yes, Einstein's absurdities are distressing (only LIGO fakers feel comfortable with them). Eventually Fotini started a better life:

"This Physics Pioneer Walked Away from It All. Why Fotini Markopoulou traded quantum gravity for industrial design." http://nautil.us/issue/38/noise/this...ay-from-it-all

Most Einsteinians share Fotini's sentiments and abandon Einstein's idiocies as soon as they can find another profitable business.
