Title: Davis Plane: Possible explanation of UA
Post by: John Davis on September 23, 2011, 08:25:45 AM
I haven't exmined it yet in enough detail, however  I wanted the opinion of those that actually believe in the Cambridge model (and heck anyone else too) and to just open it up to discussion.

By taking the hopefully now familiar concept of an infinite plane (with infinite mass and a finite gravitational pull) we turn our eyes to the interesting question:

What would happen if an infinite plane was below our disk?

Specifically, looking at work by scientists like Forward, lets suppose this infinite plane is made of exotic matter, namely that with negative mass.  Of course this is also assuming a level of gravitational shielding or bow shock effect around the surface of terra.  Looking at NASA's work concerning the diameteric drive with Forward (in BPPP) or simply by plugging in the appropriate math into Gauss's law we finally have a reasonable source for the acceleration of the Earth in the Cambridge model.

The Davis Plane is not an acceptable explanation of UA and has been rejected by the majority of FE Believers. The earth is demonstrably accelerating at 9.8m/s2 through space. Please read ENaG.

You'll notice that he didn't state as a fact, but rather as a possibility. The purpose of our rather unzetetic theories and rationalities are to show that FE is physically possible.

And John, that actually makes a lot of sense to me. I still stand by the Aetheric Wind model, simply because it is my own, but this seems to be a working alternative to it.

This is an explanation of why the earth is accelerating.

Such a huge leap, and for nothing.

Your flat disk will, again, crumple into a sphere because you still have gravity, or gravitational pull. A disk of some 40000 km diameter and some 1000 km or more of height has more than enough matter to convert itself into a sphere by the effect of its own weight, even if it was made of steel. The maths for this have been done a few times in this forum.

But this is usual in this forum: to solve one problem you create ten. And the new ones are even more intractable than the original. And to get there you need negative mass!

Or we could avoid the topic of negative mass and say that it is above the disk.

I am concerned that there is still no evidence that gravity actually exists.  I am happy to accept that the Earth is of infinite horizontal extent and accelerates upwards at 9.8m/s^2.

Here's an idea: The earth (or the part of it we are on) is flat, but the overall shape is that of an oblate spheroid. So the earth is like a squashed lump of mozzarella. Debunk this as you will, but it's just an idea.

A few questions. If you're going to use gravity in your theory, you should know that mass doesn't shield other things from gravity, it causes gravity. The mathematics have been done for a perfectly flat infinite plane. As the Earth, if it were actually flat, is not perfectly flat, tidal forces would rip it apart and it would collapse on itself.

Dear John,
I am not going to get into a debate here, but if you would like some information please email me. There is a tremendous amount of evidence gravity exists, it is astounding that people continue to make this claim. I will be more then happy to provide scientifically reviewed literature on the topic and can give pages of quantified measured correlation with the gravitational model. Even if you refuse to acknowledge gravity i can demonstrate why an infinitely wide disk can not be uniformly accelerating and why if this was allowed it would not correlate with the observed effects of gravity on a local scale. i am aware of how difficult changing ones belief structure can be but I will gladly provide explanations that you can feel free to attempt counter claims on.

our disk is not a disk, but another infinite plane. But please be precise when you speak.

Now we have two infinite planes instead of one and negative mass, and no additional questions answered. Lets agree on one thing: two infinite, parallel planes are essentially the same as one plane made of layers of different materials. It gives an incomplete answer to the gravitational pull we feel, and no answers to any other questions. And you do not even tell us what answers your two infinite planes answer that the original one did not.

Just another word game. If the model is more complex then people might be a little bit more intimidated to call it hogwash.

Dear Mr Heath,

There is no need to conduct our scientific interchange under the clandestine cover of e-mails.  I am more than happy to hear your claims on the forum here, where the tribunal of public scrutiny will engender an attitude of the truth.  I am particularly interested to know why an infinitely wide disc cannot uniformly accelerate, as this is manifestly what is occurring at present in the universe.

I invite you to release an object from your hand; you will see the entire cosmos rise at a steady acceleration to meet it.  I appreciate that you may believe some mystic force to be at work, that the object is moving down from your hand under the impetus of this force.  But I beseech you to consider that this is the bias of your perspective, as you yourself are being accelerated upward by the great heaving Earth beneath us.  I ask you - whither this mystical force?  Have you ever observed a graviton, the explanatory panacea of the globularist account of physics?  I must say that the Earth moving in accordance with the forces we understand from our very lives requires a good deal less explanation than objects being mystically drawn to the Earth by an unseen force, transmitted by an unseen particle, a force which you presumably claim is operative across every cubic centimetre of the universe. I am eager to hear your reasons for believing such a story.

James,

I think that if you really looked at the two theories, you will see that both do have holes that can not be explained.  For example, you say that the Earth is accelerating upwards but give no explanation as to why.  I have read many theories that try to explain this, but all fall far from providing any evidence, other than the effects of this acceleration guesses as to why this is happening.  The round Earthers also give an explanation, in the form of gravity.  They also can not give an explanation as to why this effect takes place, for certain.  They simply say that, "things attract each other".

My point is that you seem to be trying to disprove gravity as being a "Mystical Force" that can not be explained, and therefore not true.  Yet, your "Earth Acceleration" theory also can not be explained or proven.

It most certainly can be explained; modern science suggests that it is occurring because of the Big Bang. Once we abandon the globularist confusions about the nature of "up", we arrive at a very simple fact that the Big Bang was monodirectional. It went up. And it is still going up.

How can an explosion be monodirectional?  I have used shape charges in the military, and yes, you can focus a charge in a certain direction, but that does not mean that the entire explosion happens in that direction.  Also, the energy dissipates as you move away from the epicenter of the explosion.  We are we supposedly moving much faster now than we were when the big bang happened, much less half way between the present time and the time that the big bang occurred?

Remind me again where "explosions" even come into the picture?  We are talking about the big bang.  Despite its humourous name, it is not referring to a literal bang or explosion.

So, you are saying that the Big Bang did occur, but the energy was only focused in a narrow beam that happened to point at the Earth, and despite known physics, constantly increases in acceleration?  Is there any evidence for this, other that it must be true for the flat Earth to exist?

The definition for acceleration is a change in speed relative to time.  You have already implied that speed does not exist.  Does time not exist as well?  What is your definition of acceleration if it is not the same as the one I provided?

In the past, I thought about replacing Dark Energy with a negative mass as the source that drives the Earth's acceleration, as the negative mass can do so without requiring a tremendous amount of energy; however, I stumbled upon the problem with the acceleration of spherical celestial bodies and the Submoon. What would happen to the Submoon underneath the Earth? Should there be a negative mass as well near each celestial body to achieve parallel acceleration, if DE is not available? If not, how do the celestial bodies achieve such acceleration? Or should we accept Photoelectric Suspension Theory and treat the celestial bodies as metallic discs?

If the other plane is moving the Earth, what is moving the plane?
If I remember correctly, since a negative mass is attracted to a positive mass and said positive mass is repelled from said negative mass, the two masses can accelerate forever without requiring any additional sources of propulsion (if both masses are equally massive).

Well, if the earth was made of layers in the Cambridge model of alternating positive negative, its possible the bowshock effect or gravitational shielding could happen both ways.  Most Cambridge modelers don't talk often of the subheavens however.
