What Will Happen to Betelgeuse?

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 9:24 pm

Here’s a YouTube video featuring some of my opponents in theoretical physics explaining the conventional theory as to what will happen to Betelgeuse sometime within the next 100000 years.  Here.

In contrast, as most of you know, I work with the Reciprocal System of theory.  Here, Betelgeuse (classified on the CM diagram as M2) is most likely a second generation Red Giant star (2C in Reciprocal System notation).  As such, it is slowly contracting toward the Main Sequence–so it will not be exploding as a supernova for several billion years.  Observations appear to show that its size has reduced by 15% and its luminosity by an even greater amount.  Of course, part of this might be due to a dust cloud surrounding the star.  Also, Betelgeuse is a variable star, and so cycles of brightening and dimming are usual.  (In the Reciprocal System, gravitational segregation exists in the star, so that the the further one goes down, the heavier the element (modelled as a shell).  Rather than fusion of H in the center, there is fission of heavy elements.  A young star may start with element 117 or element 92 as the fissioning element, depending on the location.  Then, as the star ages and temperature increases, lower elements in sequence become available for fission.  The increase in energy may cause the star to expand, which then cools the star, and so the star may revert back to the next higher element for fission.  The pulsation may continue until the Red Giant reaches the Main Sequence.)  Once a Red Giant reaches the Main Sequence (which is really at the “turn-in” point, rather than the “turn-off” point as my opponents say), it will begin to move slowly up the Main Sequence until it becomes an O or B star, at which point it may go Supernova Type I.    So, to sum up, according to the Reciprocal System, Betelgeuse is moving down and to the left on the Red Giant Branch of the CM diagram, rather than moving up and then to the left on the Red Giant Branch.  It will not be going supernova anytime soon.
Incidentally, if Betelgeuse is really 2C, there should be a White Dwarf star in the vicinity–although no definitive evidence for one has been found.  As such, it’s difficult to calculate the mass of Betelgeuse.  My guess is that Betelgeuse is less massive than most astronomers think.  Some astronomers even think that Betelgeuse has swallowed its companion star–while that is possible, it would certainly be highly improbable.  I’d like to see observers carefully search for a companion star for Betelgeuse.  Maybe someone reading this is up for the challenge….

The Truth About “Black Holes”

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 5:26 pm

By now there are zillions of articles and videos about “black holes.”  And there is certainly much mythology about them.  So, what does the Reciprocal System say about them?  A “black hole” is really a “white dwarf galactic core“–not white dwarf stars in the center of a galaxy, but stars, dust, and gas in the same state as the atoms of a white dwarf star!  As a star gets closer and closer to a galactic core, the speed of its revolution keeps increasing until it exceeds the speed of light, at which point the velocity equation, v = s/t, flips to v = t/s.  This means that the motion is now in coordinate time, the inverse of that of coordinate space.  Outward in coordinate time appears to us as inward in coordinate space, so it appears to us as a “compression” rather than as an “expansion.”  The approx. 4 million stars in the core of the Milky Way are actually separated by lots of coordinate time, although to us they appear to be packed together impossibly close!

But what goes in must eventually come out.  The stars in the core continue to go through their life cycle, gradually moving up the Main Sequence–at which point, they explode creating a Supernova Type I.  If they have already gone through four cycles of this, and are thus quite old, they reach the age limit, and so explode as Supernovae Type II.  In this case, most of the material moves into the third dimension of motion and leaves the “black hole” as a jet–which eventually escapes the galaxy and enters the cosmic (or inverse) sector.  This explains the “jets” we commonly see coming out of “black holes.”

The Two Stages of the Creation of the Physical Universe

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 8:16 pm

According to the Reciprocal System and its extension to metaphysics, existence is comprised of the Non-Physical Realm–non-space-time units–and the Physical Realm–space-time units.  The first stage of the creation of the physical universe came about when a portion of the non-space-time units of the Non-Physical Realm, having the property of creativity, converted themselves to space-time units–specifically the space-time progression, the “clock” of the universe–one unit of space per one unit of time–one unit of velocity.  We can identify the natural unit of velocity as the speed of light.  Then the second stage of creation was the conversion of another portion of the non-space-time units of the Non-Physical Realm, again having the property of creativity, to space-time units–but in this case with magnitudes up and down from unity.  There was no creation “ex nihilo”–a general conservation law applies to the two conversion processes.  In this second stage, photons and massless, chargeless subatoms (rotating photons) were formed as follows:

Subatom                          Photon Freq.      Rot. Displ.    Eff. Rot. Displ.      Rot. Speed      Rot. Freq.
m-positron                           2 R                    1-0-1               0-0-1              1/2-1-1/2     R/π-2R/π-R/π
c-positron                         1/2 R                   (1)-0-(1)            0-0-(1)              2-1-2         4R/π-2R/π-4R/π
m-electron                           2 R                     1-0-(1)             0-0-(1)            1/2-1-2       R/π-2R/π-4R/π
c-electron                         1/2 R                    (1)-0-1              0-0-1               2-1-1/2      4R/π-2R/π-R/π
m-massless neutron            2 R                      1-1-0             1/2-1/2-0         1/2-1/2-1    R/π-R/π-2R/π
c-massless neutron           1/2 R                    (1)-(1)-0         (1/2)-(1/2)-0        2-2-1        4R/π-4R/π-2R/π
m-neutrino                           2 R                     1-1-(1)           1/2-1/2-(1)        1/2-1/2-2   R/π-R/π-4R/π
c-neutrino                         1/2 R                    (1)-(1)-1          (1/2)-(1/2)-1      2-2-1/2      4R/π-4R/π-R/π

where R = the unit Rydberg Frequency.  For the details of the spin numbers, please read Dr. Satz’s work Existents and Interaction:  A Computational Treatise of the Reciprocal System–The True Theory of Everything.  These subatoms (which have momentum, though not mass) then merged to create subatoms with mass, which then merged to create the atomic elements of the Periodic Table.  Particles, virtual or real, did not and cannot “pop out” of the space-time progression, unlike the claims of Quantum Mechanics.  The existing displacements from unit space-time have the character of postulates, and a general conservation law obtains:  displacements may be transformed from one form to another but cannot be destroyed.  Study the Reciprocal System and prove it for yourself!

Seeking Science Publisher to Reprint Dewey B. Larson’s Works

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 5:06 pm

The International Society of Unified Science is seeking a well-respected and well-capitalized science publisher to reprint and market Dewey B. Larson’s works.  We own the copyrights to all of Dewey B. Larson’s books and would like to receive royalty payments from the publisher.  Given that there are roughly 8 million scientists and 10 million engineers in the world, this is a major market.  If only 1% of these eventually buy one of Larson’s books for $35, then that would give a sales figure of 18000000 x .01 x 35 = $6,300,000.  Those who purchase one book are likely to purchase another, and so the sales figure should go up from there.  Contact Dr. Ronald W. Satz,, with a proposal, including marketing.

If God is Equated to All of Existence

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 4:36 pm

The grandfather of the Reciprocal System, Samuel Alexander, made the statement in Space, Time, and Deity, p. 358 in Book IV, that “God’s body being the whole of Space-Time is omnipresent and eternal.”  The “whole of Space-Time” is our physical universe.  What Alexander did not grasp, but Dewey B. Larson did, is that existence is comprised of two realms, not just one:  the Physical Realm and the Non-Physical Realm.  If the Physical Realm is the “body” of God, then the Non-Physical Realm must be the “mind” of God.  This concept is a far cry from the silly anthropomorphic concepts of past theologians.  Whereas the Physical Realm is discretized into space-time units, the Non-Physical Realm is discretized into non-space-time units.  Rational, ethical individuals (here and around the universe) have a unit from the Non-Physical Realm which can override the “bad” impulses of our biological aspects.  Samuel Alexander said that we “enjoy” our mind and “contemplate” our body.  Extrapolating from this, we can say that God enjoys his mind (the Non-Physical Realm) and contemplates his body (the Physical Realm).  Given that both realms are so huge, it’s not possible to get bored!

Dark Matter Hypothesis Disproven

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 11:24 am

So it now seems that the “dark matter” hypothesis has been disproven.  In the Reciprocal System, there certainly is matter in between galaxies, but it’s ordinary matter or cosmic (inverse) matter, not some new form of matter.  Study the Reciprocal System and prove it for yourself!

LIGO Is Wrong

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 8:32 pm

This is hilarious for those of us who reject so-called “modern physics.”  Of course, the data do not support the contention that “gravitational waves” have been discovered!

The reality is that, according to the Reciprocal System of theory, the very slight deflections measured come from the impinging massless, chargeless electrons and positrons created in energetic astrophysical events.

Huge Galaxy Cluster

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 11:11 am

As usual, the conventional theorists are clueless.  This huge galaxy cluster could not have formed in a mere 2 billion years after the alleged “Big Bang.”  Obviously, the universe is much older than the conventional theorists say it is.

A New Unseen Gamma Ray Burst

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 1:16 pm

No, this is not the collapse of a massive star in our sector of the universe.  According to the Reciprocal System, GRBs are (most likely) cosmic explosions.  As Dewy B. Larson says on p. 386 in The Universe of Motion, “…a cosmic explosion releases a large amount of radiation in a very small space, just as an explosion of the material type releases a large amount of radiation in a very short time.”  The cosmic explosion could be that of an end-of-life cosmic galaxy, or possibly that of a large cosmic supernova.

Gamma Rays from Micro-Quasars

Filed under: Science — transpower @ 11:43 am

The conventional theoreticians are baffled.  Those of us who work with the Reciprocal System are not!  Obviously, fission of heavy elements in these objects are creating ongoing Supernovae Type II explosions–and these are producing the gamma rays.
