Cumberland Astronomical Society) that described a simple, successful experiment that demonstrated the instantaneous effect of the electric force, in much the same way that Rainer had proposed back in 1976:
- Experimental evidence for the transfer of information at a speed greater than the speed of light. (from Member Spotlight).
- Additional experimental evidence for the transfer of information at a speed greater than the speed of light.
Larson's concept of the basic forces, electric, magnetic and gravitational, differ considerably from conventional thought in that they are scalar properties of the atoms--not an interaction between them (much like Larson's concept of heat). For example, consider the conventional "force of attraction" on the two masses depicted below:
According to conventional thought, the mass of the cars will attract each other and they will eventually collide.
Larson's concept, in the gravitational sense, is that the outward, temporal rotation of the atoms, due to the reciprocal relation of space and time, also produces a linear, inward translation in extension space (scalar--no preferred direction so appears as a spherical distribution--gravity). Larson's view of the above situation would be that the car engines, a rotary motion being translated to a linear one by the transmission, is the reason that the cars will collide. In the Reciprocal System, the mass of an atom is directly proportional to it's rotational speed, so the faster the engine goes, the more "mass" the car has. And because of that direct relation, it appears that it is an interaction of "masses," since conventional physics does not have the concept of "temporal rotation."
The Experiment The experimental setup consisted of a 30-foot section of PVC pipe (with legs), a fixed antenna on one end that could be pointed vertically (radial transmission) or horizontally (electric force transmission), and a moveable antenna at the other end, of the same construction, that could be slid down the pipe which was marked off in 1-foot intervals. The oscilloscope and transmitter were placed 20 feet perpendicular to the fixed, receiving antenna to minimize interference.
During our attempt to reproduce Allen's experiment, we discovered that coaxial cable will change impedance, depending on how much it is bent. This caused a significant problem in taking measurements, as it could not be easily calculated. Rainer came up with an idea--rather than hooking the transmitter directly to the oscilloscope, as Allen did, we would run the reference signal through a bifilar cable to the antenna on the far end, so that any impedance change due to curvature would be negated by the same, opposite change on the return trip. That worked exceptionally well--bending the cable now produced only tiny phase shifts, well within the range of experimental error for the equipment being used.
The fixed antenna was connected to channel 2 of a dual-trace, 400 mhz oscilloscope, and the transmitter was connected to one end of the bifilar cable to the moveable antenna, with wire of sufficient length (60 feet) so that there could be a consistent U-loop at the far end to minimize any impedance differences, due to the bending (same bend all the time). The return wire from the antenna was connected to channel 1 of the oscilloscope, to be used as a reference signal.
Measurements were made with the antennas in the vertical (radial transmission) position, which should give the normal, speed-of-light propagation of radio waves.
A second set of measurements was taken with the antennas in the horizontal (electric/Coulomb force) position.
We ran a number of tests, and got the same readings that Allen did, demonstrating that the interaction of the electric force is instantaneous, and the corresponding radio signal was at the speed of light. Our first two tests produced reasonable results, but the radio portion was being interfered with due to the proximity of high-tension power cables feeding the transformer to the house.
So we moved the setup to another location on the far side of the driveway and ran the experiment again. This cleared up the EM interference. The variations in the axial readings appear to be related to the surrounding environment, including an apple tree branch near the receiving antenna (6'), and Rainer's van, some 20 feet away from the experimental setup (16-22').
But in all test cases, there is a clear, well-defined result showing a major difference between the EM and electric force configurations.
