Also, my new book on quantised inertia is available from Amazon next month, on the 15th July (see references). I've been working on this book for seven years, and it is, I hope, nothing less than an empirical reboot for theoretical physics. Like Gaul, in Caesar's eyes, the book is divided into three parts:

In the first part I have no mercy on the standard model of physics and I discuss 54 observed anomalies that prove that the old physics just can't cope anymore. These range from the large-scale cosmic acceleration which makes a mockery of any pretence of conservation of energy in physics, down through the well-known galaxy rotation problem that gave rise to the need for the awfully arbitrary dark matter, the wayward asteroid Oumuamua, down through laboratory thrust oddities, the Abraham-Minkowski paradox, the long running controversy of cold fusion and the proton radius anomaly. This is a scale range from 10^-15 to 10^26 metres.

Then, just when you are giving up hope that any physics can explain these diverse anomalies, I introduce quantised inertia and show that it predicts what people have been calling the usual property of inertia, but with a slight change that predicts the anomalies as well. It gets rid of the gravitational constant, which turns out to be the speed of light squared times the cosmic scale divided by its mass. Happily, one less constant to learn at university (I always found it to be a perfectly acceptable constant but with Frankenstein units).

Just as you are breathing a sign of relief that physics might look up from its invisible entities and untestable strings, I introduce all the applications of QI which include much better satellite thrusters, the ability to get to Proxima Centauri (yes, the same) in less than 15 or so years, self-thrusting materials, FTL comms and a possible way to generate energy from it.

My overall goal is to put physics back into its best mode: first look, then think, then get busy!

Fascinating, Captain: will have to buy it when it comes out!

Thanks!

Looking forward to the book, especially the energy part.

Hi,

Would quantised inertia be evidence for Mach’s Principle?

You can imagine the universe as a shell of mass around some body. When you accelerate that body gravitational waves travel out to the shell and impart a force on it. There is an equal and opposite force that operates on the body that can be thought of as due to advanced gravitational waves that travel backwards in time from the shell to produce the reaction force on the body exactly at the time it is accelerated.

The wavelength of the gravitational waves is limited by the size of the universe which is approximately R=c/H_0 where H_0 is the Hubble constant.

By using the Unruh radiation formula to relate the minimum acceleration of the body to the graviton energy we find that the minimum acceleration must be roughly a_0 = c H_0

Does this make sense?

John

John: Interesting point. I do not believe gravitational waves (I think there are other explanations for the data involving Unruh waves) but QI (previously called MiHsC) does predict Mach's principle. I explain how here https://physicsfromtheedge.blogspot.com/2012/07/beyond-pail.html

I was wondering if you could test for quantised inertia by measuring the ticks of a mechanical clock with an electronic or atomic clock.

For example the electronic clock could give the values:

32527363,51460800,37837278,140359181,59290452,115339538,94959068,39589482,20287152,95478659

Using Euclid’s greatest common divisor algorithm one finds that each number is divisible by 151 so that would indicate the acceleration of the clock mechanism is quantised.

John

First, John, very good idea:

",,,,Using Euclid’s greatest common divisor algorithm one finds that each number is divisible by 151 so that would indicate the acceleration of the clock mechanism is quantised.,,,"

Nice, easy, exact, and powerful experimental way. Thanks John.

Second Mike,,,,,,,, I have read your work:

¿And?,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Congratulations Mike.

Please, let other see this for you, publish it, if you like.

Ordered! Loved your first book, follow your page and theory closely, and am very much looking forward to your next book. Thank you Mike.

I was inspired by your last post and the figure 155000 km/s sparked a neuron...

The universe is expanding – from our point of the view that rate is R=73km/s per Mparsec (1. from your last post)

Take C=2.98*10^8m

Therefore there in ~4082 Mparsecs the rate (R’) will equal C. The view of the universe will appear fixed (like the crystal spheres of old) through time dilation.

MP= 1 Mparsec is 3.262*10^6 ly

Size of observable universe 93*10^9/MP == 28510 Mparsecs

Size of observable universe using expansion limit= 2*4082*MP == 2*13.315*10^9 ly.

Age of universe estimate 13.5 billion years – surely if expansion is >C it will appear fixed? (since we measure in light years, 13.5 billion years is the minimum time for light to reach us.).

Have I missed something? Not sure how the "estimate" of observable universe can be greater than when R' >C!!!!

Congratulations! I'm looking forward to reading your new book.

Great, looking forward to it! You might want to have a look into this recent paper "Indefinitely Flat Circular Velocities and the Baryonic Tully-Fisher Relation from Weak Lensing" by Mistele et al. to check as to how well QI agrees with the flat curve observations.

Thank you for the cool book, it's going to be a joy to digest, Godspeed!

What's your opinion on Buhler's Electrostatic Pressure Force and tests? Do you explain it in terms of QI or is it different?

Hi Dr Mike,

Have you checked out Charles Buhler of Exodus Propulsion Technologies?

Here's a video here on his propellantless drive. They mention QI being used to explain the thrust and mention the lack of dark matter!

Bought the hard copy book, but they keep delaying delivery. Any idea what's going on?

Gaaark: Sorry about that. Most seem to be delivered fine, but there have been outliers. Pls keep us informed how it goes...

Amazon cancelled my order, so i ordered it on-line from our local book store. Dag-nabbit Amazon!
