Where Lies the Optical Properties of Matter in General Relativity?

In the December 12 1936 issue of Nature, Ludwik Silberstein publishes a letter entitled "Minimal lines and geodesics within matter: A fundamental difficulty of Einstein's theory."

The issue Silberstein address was that Einstein equates geometry $G$ with a material tensor $T$ so that one should know what the other is talking about. Otherwise, you would be equating apples and oranges. 

Now according to Einstein's generalization of the Minkowski indefinite metric, 


Why Black Holes Don't Exist in the Schwarzschild Metric, and How to Create One

We are told to imagine that within the Schwarzschild radius, a particle will spiral in to its doom hitting the singularity in an undetermined amount of time. All this comes from extrapolating the Schwarzschild metric beyond its domain of validity, $r<2GM/c^2$. This is undoubtedly why Karl Schwarzschild did not find any such sucking in of material, and why he went beyond his outer solution to create an inner solution for $r<\surd(G\varrho)/c$, where $\varrho$ is the density and $1/\surd(G\varrho)$ is the Newtonian free-fall time.

A Weberian Force For the Generalized Newtonian Force

There are more parallels between Newton's force and the Weberian force of electrodynamics than meets the eye. Newton derived his inverse square law from the centrifugal force


where $F_s$ is the force directed at the source, $v$ the velocity and $\varrho$, the radius of curvature. Newton then introduced Kepler's II,


to obtain


How to Use A Michelson Interferometer to Measure the Newtonian Force

LIGO chose to measure the strength of gravitational waves by using a Michelson type interferometer while recognizing that the "ripples in the fabric of spacetime cause the frequency of the laser light to fluctuate "ever so slightly" as well as admitting to the fact that "a gravitational wave does stretch and squeeze the wavelengths of light in the arms." However, LIGO adds that "it turns out that it doesn't matter. What matters is how long the laser beam spends traveling in each arm.

Schwarzschild's Outer Metric Is Incompatible with Kepler's III Law

Brown, in his Reflections on Relativity attempts "to give a very plausible (if not entirely rigorous) derivation of Schwarzschild's metric purely from [a] knowledge of the inverse square characteristic of gravity, Kepler's third law for circular orbit, and the null intervals of light paths."

Brown bases his derivation on the space-time metric


How Kepler's Laws Destroy the LIGO Analysis of the Interferometer Strain Signal

We will show that Kepler's III destroys the independence of the frequency $\omega$ and its rate of change in time, $\dot{\omega}$ so that they cannot be varied independently to determine the 'chirp' mass $\eta^{3/5}M$ from

$$ G(\eta N)^{3/5}M=c^3\left(\frac{\dot{\omega}}{3\omega^{11/3}}\right)^{3/5}.$$

where $N$ is a numerical factor, $32/5$ for linear GR, and $N=2/5$ for the EM-like model discussed by Hilborn. For equal masses $\eta^{3/5}M=M/\sqrt[5]{2}$ so that Kepler's third law


Gravitation Waves Aberrate!

$\ldots$ so say LIGO [Abbott et al, "Observation of gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger", (Hulse) Taylor and Weisberg, "The relativistic binary pulsar B1913+16: thirty years of observation and analysis", and Peters and Mathews, "Gravitational radiation from point masses in a Keplerian orbit".

In a tutorial Hilborn, in his tutorial on the derivation of gravity waves without general relativity, asks if the luminosity of gravitational waves,


Gravitational waves from orbiting binaries without general relativity: a tutorial on not how to do physics

The best way to show how ridiculous is the theory of gravitational waves is to present the arguments used by Hilbron in a tutorial on gravitational waves that does not use general relativity. Although his expressions for the  polarization, angular distributions, and overall power results differ from those of GR, waveforms that are very similar to the pre-binary-merger portions of the signals observed by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO-VIRGO) collaboration.

The Luminosity Attributed to Gravitational Waves is Incompatible with a Black-Body Spectrum

In our last blog we derived the speed of gravity from the observational period and variation in the period of the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16 that was discovered by Taylor and Hulse. The luminosity spectrum they used went back to a 1963 paper of Peter and Mathews who took the rate of energy emission of Einstein's rotating dumbbell,


and evaluated the quadrupole moments using a Keplerian ellipse
