The news is buzzing this week with claims that researchers at the CERN, one of the world’s leading research centers, conducted an experiment that “proved” Einstein wrong. They claim that they were able to make neutrinos travel faster than the speed of light. But the media is sensationalizing things just a bit because the researchers “deliberately do not attempt any theoretical or phenomenological interpretation of the results.” [See their paper].
I’m excited by this experiment because it supports the findings that there are subtle, but significant, theoretical and mathematical mistakes in Einstein’s theory.
Also exciting, is that this experiment might be used to differentiate Modern Classical Mechanics (which is conceptually consistent with this experimental) from Relativity theory (which appears to be conceptually inconsistent with this experiment).
Over the past few days, people have asked me to summarize what is wrong with Einstein’s theory. I can summarize it as follows:
- His proof that establishes Relativity fails, but since it is a “false positive”, we think that it passed. Specifically, he claims to have a sphere and doesn’t. (See Episode 22)
- He mixes up concepts. He believes he is discussing time, when in reality he is talking about length. (See Episode 23)
- He mistreats wavelength as if it were length. This is equivalent to looking at your speedometer and believing that the readings are odometer readings. (See Episode 20)
We must remember that Einstein’s equations produce good results in many cases. So, this experiment is important because it could become a distinguishing experiment. Theories that support this experiment will prevail, while those that do not will undergo major revision, or will need to be jettison.
