Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Norway have been out of EU all the time, and it went quite well...it would have gone even much better if not the politicians that hoped we would join EU not had gone behind the peoples backs and signed as many agreements with EU as possible after they got shocked and figured out the people did not w...

Re: Physics question - why are we so sure g is constant?

it used to be f. After all it was a 1873 French invention, first time mentioned in a footnote. Who would have balls: to mention in the main text, a constant related to the Newton gravity theory, that Newton never had mentioned or used. The first to modify Newton hide it in a footnote, but then the d...

Re: Physics question - why are we so sure g is constant?

" Diferentiate  g , the value should be zero?" not zero if G is composite as I have suggested, and c is the one-way speed of light (or one-way speed of gravity, likely same thing) and it is anisotropic..   gravity "waves" have confirmed speed of gravity is in ball range off c, but with extreme barn-...

Re: Physics question - why are we so sure g is constant?

Naturally if one use a incomplete gravity theory and with one constant that is not derived, but calibrated and re-calibrated. Then if anything is missing in this gravity theory, then one can put it into G, by recalibrating..  this do not mean G vary, it simply mean one have a incomplete theory. Of c...

Re: Physics question - why are we so sure g is constant?

"Why are we so certain that the gravitational constant is actually constant " G is a constant invented by modern physics. It is for modern physics an observational constant calibrated to gravity phenomena to get their incomplete mass  definition  to work for gravity predictions. So yes one could na...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

there is no scale below the Planck scale!  Ohh  Yes and No, are you talking about energies below the Planck energy? this is = length scale above the Planck scale.  To say below or above the Planck scale is not scientific rigorous enough in my view, and I must check my papers here myself also.

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

One either has to accept that there is no minimum length or time, or one needs to modify special relativity theory! And yes one need to modify SR, point particles is hypothesis that makes little logical sense! ( Please read Principia, Newton would never have bought into it). Does Special Relativity ...
