Theoretical Prediction


In Davide Castelvechhi’s article “Half-Life (More or Less),” November 22, 2008, he quotes theoretical physicist Rabindra Mohapatra of the University of Maryland in College Park as saying, “There is no known theory that will predict something like this.”  That neutrinos are the source of the mass variation in isotopes and hence of radioactivity has long been known to the supporters of the Reciprocal System of physical theory created by the engineer-scientist Dewey B. Larson.  Here’s a quote from my 1971 book, The Unmysterious Universe, p. 50, which summarizes Larson’s theoretical deductions on this topic:


“…the neutrino, a neutral space-time entity, eludes capture, passing through space or matter easily.  Occasionally, though, on passing through matter, the neutrino acquires a magnetic charge, a space displacement, and becomes trapped.  Only by losing its charge can the neutrino escape; but such possibility becomes more remote as the concentration of neutrinos builds up with age, and so the build-up is irreversible.  The motion of the neutrino with respect to the atom is equivalent to an oppositely directed motion of the atom with respect to the neutrino.  Like thermal motion, these two oppositely directed motions must reach equilibrium.  The neutrinos, having a magnetic charge with space displacement, thus force the atoms to acquire magnetic charges with time displacement.  This motion merges with the atomic rotation, increasing the mass of the atom.  Each of these units, which Larson terms gravitational charges for convenience, is only half as effective as a unit of unidirectional rotation.  The mass due to this half unit of effective displacement is one unit of atomic weight, and each additional unit of gravitational charge increases the atomic weight –producing isotopes.”


So there is a known theory that predicts the neutrino influence on isotopes discovered by the experimentalists.
