Quote from: CronkitesGhost on July 06, 2019, 11:04:17 PMhey man you're a scientist. for us lay people who've been listening to Hoagie's pseudo scientific babble for years can you in fairly plain English explain what Hoagland *thinks* he's discovered regarding torsion field aka hyperdimensional physics? thanks
Quote from: expat on July 07, 2019, 08:04:20 AMHe was totally thrilled by the report of an amateur scientist called Bruce DePalma (brother of Brian, as it goes) about the behavior of an Accutron wristwatch in close proximity to a 30lb flywheel rotating at 7600 rpm. DePalma reported that the watch lost 0.9 sec for every 1000 seconds near the flywheel.Hoagland wrote: "DePalma proposed, as a result of his wide-ranging rotational experiments, that "rotating masses" in general set up some kind of hitherto unrecognized "inertial field" in their vicinity (the more widely-used term for this field now, because of how it's accessed, is a "torsion field" -- because "torsion" means literally "rotation")."Can you spot the pseudofact? Torsion is not rotation but resistance to rotation.Anyway, Hoagland extended this idea to the proposition that even bigger rotating bodies (but much further away) called "planets" might also generate torsion fields. He set up what he called an "experiment" during the Venus transit of June 2004. He's web-published two different versions of the results, neither of which is in any sense convincing, but he claims to have demonstrated the effect and has gone on to take his Accutron around the world "measuring" the torsion field during other astronomical events, such as eclipses.Among the MANY problems with his protocol is the fact that the Accutron went most out of whack at Tikal at a time when there was no eclipse or transit.

Quote from: Yorkshire pud on July 07, 2019, 10:03:33 AMThat's 100% more fact checking than Hoagie ever did.
Quote from: brig on July 07, 2019, 10:06:31 AMBefore expat explained it, I had no idea what Hoagie was rambling on about. LOL
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on July 07, 2019, 10:08:45 AMHoagie doesn't know what he's rambling on about..Expat just approaches it as a psychiatrist does with a patient.
Quote from: expat on July 07, 2019, 04:51:53 PMHere's a little summary of some of my concerns about the value of Hoagland's Accutron games:http://dorkmission.blogspot.com/2013/09/richard-hoaglands-homework-in-dog-bowl.html"formally published paper" MY ASS. Of course I'm still waiting, six years later.
