Gravity is . . . Part III: Regulating the Expansion of Light

One point that is important to keep in mind is that light, without something regulating its expansion, is going to overexpand. If light overexpands, then its flows will be smaller than had the light expanded normally.
Interestingly enough, Young’s so-called two-slit experiment demonstrates this fact well. I use the term two-slit because that is how the experiment is conducted today, although Young didn’t use what we now consider the classic set-up.
In the experiment, a single source of light, and this, of course, is important because we are dealing with light expanding in an expanding sphere, which means it’s light from a single emitter, hits a screen with two slits in it.
Light passes through the slits. As I pointed out in the last post, light expands and diminishes uniformly in an expanding sphere if there isn’t something blocking its expansion. Here, its expansion is blocked by a screen and only the light that hits the slits is allowed to pass through the slits. The rest is simply no longer a factor in examining the effect that results.
To see what happens when the light passes through the slits, I will digress. I spent a lot of time figuring out how we see what we see. We see what we see because of light. But it’s not just the light that allows us to see what we see. We need information in the light we see if we are going to be able to reconstruct in our mind an accurate picture of external reality.
What information does the light we see contain?
The light our eyes collect contains specific information as to the precise distance, relative to everything else we see, of a specific point. It also contains color information, but that isn’t relevant here.
How can the light contain information about the relative distance of all points we see?
Because, the light is expanding uniformly with the square of the distance from its source. If we turn the light on in a room, the emitted light expands out into the room and reflects off every point of each object in the room. When it arrives at each point, it has traveled a different distance depending on the point's location with respect to the source of the light.
When the light strikes a point on an object, it bounces off. When it bounces off, it begins to re-expand. If we enter a room with the light on, we see light that has bounced off every point of every object in the room. Because each point is a different distance from the source of light, and because the light therefore that is re-expanding off the points we see traveled a different distance before it began re-expanding, the amount of light that is reaching our eye from every point in the room is different from the amount of light from every other point, and we are therefore able to take this information, the distances of all the points in the room, and reconstruct a picture of the points in our mind (or brain or whatever, I don’t want to get into that discussion here, although I have two books available on what the mind is and how it operates).
Over a decade after I theorized how we see what we see, the observation gained credence with a company called Powercast that you’ll be hearing a lot about. If you want to charge your cell phone, you have to plug it into a wall socket. Powercast has developed a charger that is plugged into the wall socket. If you are in range of the charger, it charges your cell phone over the air.
This was an impossible technological dream throughout the 20th century. How did it become possible? Powercast engineers realized that the low frequencies generated at the wall socket were not strong enough to charge anything if they were tapped directly. But, they reasoned, those frequencies were expanding in expanding spheres that were bouncing off every point in the room. Thus, one frequency was becoming thousands of frequencies. All that was needed was to produce a chip that could gather thousands of frequencies rather than just the original generated frequency, and that’s what they accomplished.
Powercast’s technology demonstrates that the electromagnetic range of frequencies that includes light bounce off points that are in the way of their expansion, and in the process, the rate of expansion and thus the frequencies are altered.
When the light passes through the slits in the two-slit experiment, the light is doing the same thing it does when it bounces off an object, only it is doing so because a portion of the light from an expanding sphere has been directed through a slit which gives it a new center of expansion.
There’s another feature to this light that is not present in the light bouncing off all the points in a room. The light passing through each slit, once it begins to re-expand, is identical. At any point in the expansion of the two resulting spheres, the light is the same in each sphere.
And, because the expanding spheres of light are right next to each other, the light from the two expanding spheres is commingling.
Everyone knows the result. The result is collected on a screen that now shows bands of light and no light. What happened to the light that should be, but isn’t, hitting, the collection screen?
Because the light from each sphere has overexpanded, and because the frequencies of the light in each sphere are precisely aligned, the overexpanded light forming the two spheres has, as the spheres expand and intersect, combined. The light hasn’t disappeared. It has simply combined with other light so that when the result hits the screen, the bands of light are the combined light and the bands of no light are the areas out of which the overexpanded light has been combined.
Change the frequencies of the spheres by changing the distance of the slits from the original source of light, and whatever is combining the light will no longer be able to combine it, and the dark bands will disappear from the collection screen.
It’s easy to see why the analogy to water waves is so lame, so lame, in fact, that any scientist, or any novice scientist, that proposes it, is simply not a scientist. Seeing an analogy between the absence of light and the presence of water that is found in the area where the troughs cancel out the crests is simply ignoring reality. Just as science’s watchdogs go for the easy kill when it comes to apostates, ruining their reputations rather than rationally arguing their points, science jumps at the first easy explanation around and turns it into dogma.
After all, who’d expect the beneficiaries of this multi billion-dollar enterprise to give up their international travel, their lavish vacations disguised as conferences, their sizeable grants and plush salaries, and spend a small amount of their time actually using their minds. Science claims the mind doesn’t exists, anyway, so what’s to use? It’s practitioners get the best of both worlds, first, using their non theories to claim credit for the mental sweat of people that produce technology, second, leaching the prosperity that technology produces into their own pockets. No better example exists than the effort of theoretical scientist Charles H. Townes to wrest control of the invention of the laser away from its actual inventor, Gordon Gould, in a decades long battle (and even today, no one knows Gould’s name). See The Inventor, the Nobel Laureate, and the Thirty-Year Patent War, Nick Taylor (Simon & Schuster, 2000).
Seriously, how neat is this for them. In the middle ages, the arbiter of how we view the world, the church, slaughtered people right and left and then said, hey, it’s God’s will. Now, the arbiter of how we view the world, science, is slaughtering us with ignorance, and then says, what they hey, we don’t have minds, we’re not capable of rational thought, we’re just following where the math takes us.
As it’s obvious something is recombining the light in the two-slit experiment, the next question is, what could be recombining the light?
Induction is one of the most important phenomena of electricity, at least for technology. Induction is what produces the motors that drive our prosperity. It’s pretty clear that Joseph Henry discovered the actual effect, a discovery that Faraday, after visiting Henry, turned into an invention that allowed him to claim precedence. After going back and forth on this dispute (it was a dispute in the middle of the last century, it’s never mentioned today), I have, from reading Henry’s comments, concluded that he actually wasn’t aware of the uniqueness nor the possible potential of the effect he was first to observe, but that Faraday, seeing the effect, realized instantly what it’s potential was, and being a member of The Royal Society, knew how to present it so as to gain precedence. For once, I think the old history books were right, it was in effect a joint discovery, although not a simultaneous independent discovery as they implied.
But that said, induction is a fairly straightforward electrical phenomena. Forgetting the fiction of positive and negative, electricity flows in a wire. If it’s direct current, it flows in a single direction. If we take the thumb of our right hand and point it in the direction of the flow, and then curl our fingers, we will see the inductive flow around the primary electrical flow in the curl. An inductive flow surrounds the primary flow and moves at right angles to that flow.
If we increase the primary flow, we find the inductive flow has increased. Thus, the inductive flow is proportional to the primary flow.
If we take two current carrying wires, each of them is producing an inductive flow. If we place the two wires in proximity, the inductive flows will combine the wires because, in essence, the inductive flows, in combining, will bring the two wires together to form a primary flow.
It’s the efficient result of the physical effect.
But, light is not electricity, so how can we analogize inductance to flows of light?
We generate the electric flows ourselves and as a result, we concentrate the particles responsible for the electricity in the flow.
The light, on the other hand, has expanded to a point that it is miniscule compared to the generated electrical flows. Go back to the battery charger using multiple frequencies. The amount of electricity in a cell phone is small, but it is huge when compared to the radio frequencies being tapped to charge the cell phone. Thus, thousands of frequencies are needed to produce enough electricity to charge a single phone.
But wait, how can frequencies even charge the phone? Well, high frequency chargers have been around for decades, it’s just a matter of degree. Science keeps seeing effects that demonstrate that light and electricity are interchangeable, and continues to bury its head simply because the guardians of the scientific dogma don’t pay attention to the incremental technological advances that warm our homes (even though science claims its dogmas produced the light bulb, and thus, all the technology we have at our fingertips).
Remember, our esteemed elders of scientific protection, with modern knowledge of frequencies at their fingertips, still follow Newton's idiotic claim that white light is made up of all colors of the spectrum while at the same time saying there is nothing to distinguish humans from rocks. They then claim that nature created a small portion of the range of electromagnetic frequencies, light, different from the rest, for the benefit of our eyes. This small range, white light, travels in a unique packet of all the other frequencies that make up light even though this peculiar situation exists nowhere else on the range of electromagnetic frequencies. Just one more dogmatic statement science uses to hide its own abundant ignorance (and perpetuate ours).
Just suppose that the light passing through the two slits in Young’s experiment is intermingling at the same frequency, and the fact that the frequencies are identical allows inductive flows, miniscule flows of particles, the same particles that produce electricity, to form around the flows.
That’s not only precisely what it would take to recombine the flows, it is the only possible explanation for the fact that there are areas on the collection screen where the light has simply vanished.
