First some keywords : Newton / Newton's absolute space / absolute time / absolute velocity / absolute rest / absolute velocity measuring device / Michelson and Morley exp / Michelson Morley exp / Michelson-Morley exp / Lorentz contraction / laser experiment / anomaly / light / photon / quanta / relativity of simultaneity / Einstein / thought experiment / thinking out of the box / absolute-relativity
Secondly : this website introduces an alternative laser experiment which revealed an anomaly with respect to the existing paradigms on light phenomena. The format of a "publication" is somewhat implemented in the build of this website, by using Menu Tabs showing the titles of the sections (such as Introduction or Experimental) in a typical "publication". Those sections are briefly introduced now. You can decide to skip some sections such as e.g. the Introduction or Application sections when preferring to read other sections first.
Thirdly: a short introduction to this website can also be found on YouTube as a 10 minutes video presentation. Click on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lvx945SP-RM
The views as presented on this website are supported by Etienne Brauns, Luc Martens and Mon Gysen ; these views were also deposited officialy in front of a notary (in 2006) and were the subject of a patent text.
As a starter on "paradigms" : is the equation, here below, imagination or reality ? It is up to you to reflect upon. You can also download a document for support during that reflection ; click here : Euler and e
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer
Time and again the passion for understanding has led to the illusion that man is able to comprehend the objective world rationally by pure thought without any empirical foundations, in short - by metaphysics. Albert Einstein
Truth is what stands the test of experience. Albert Einstein
In this section you can read in brief about the existence of "paradigms" in science and the defense of those "indisputable" paradigms by those scientists who think exclusively from "within their box". Those scientists will evidently defend by circle referencing to the existing paradigms literature which holds their "in the box" knowledge. In their minds and from their training, they of course will also not consider this website as "serious", as was experienced during multiple attempts to first publish the contents of this website in typical Journals. Since these attempts were in vain as a result of "thinking in the box" by the editors/reviewers, it was decided to have the Internet bringing the information to those scientists who have at least an open mind and are willing to have a more detailed look at the contents of this website and to then decide on the relevance of the views as presented. Your feedback is possible by clicking on "Contact" to the left of this page.
An alternative experiment using a laser was performed and an important anomaly with respect to the existing paradigms could effectively be demonstrated, in a reproducible way. The straightforward laser experiment is directly discussed in "2. Experimental" as to fix your attention immediately on the anomaly (have therefore certainly a look at Figure 2) which questions the null result of the Michelson and Morley experiment. This should definitely stirr your interest with respect to further reading and eventually performing the revealing laser experiment yourself or in cooperation with your colleagues.
In this section some further specific views are presented related to the actual paradigms. With respect to the concept of Cartesian based reference frames, as used in a classic way in physics, an important fact is that an observer on earth in reality also travels at the orbit velocity of our planet through space. The earth's orbit velocity is indeed estimated in the literature to be an astounding 30 000 meter per second. It is then shown that the Lorentz contraction is a mathematical construction within a virtual mathematical space in a human's mind which does not save the phenomena of photons in the real space outside that human's mind. A key issue is the conclusion that the Cartesian based mathematical reference frame, which is used by an observer who moves in real space, is fully unable to graphically represent correctly the position of a photon's past position in real space. This requires from a reader a profound Gestalt Switch during the reading of that section in order to be able to abandon her/his "in the box reasoning" resulting from the existing paradigms that (s)he was trained in.
Here, the eventual use of the principle of an absolute velocity measuring device is discussed.
In this section, the relativity of Simultaneity as discussed by Einstein in his thought experiment is analyzed in more detail. It is shown that the observer in the train compartment indeed is able to decide on the simultaneity when using the absolute velocity measuring device as described in this website and a light clock. Additionaly, the Michelson and Morley experiment is also discussed and an important effect which was not considered in that experiment is pointed to. That effect should definitely be looked into to verify if the "null result" of the Michelson and Morley experiment can be explained from that point of view. The alternative experiment as presented in the section "Experimental" in fact also questions that "null result"
