Creating the discipline of gravity design.

Gravity Modification (abbreviated to gMod) is a site devoted to a new design discipline, gravity design, based upon the theoretical capability to manipulate gravity-like fields.  The goal of this site is to discuss new opportunities in product design, transportation design, architecture, cityscapes, sporting goods, medical technologies, fitness training, energy production, and much more.

The existence of gravity-like fields has been proposed by Drs. Jochem Hauser and Walter Dröscher in their writings about Extended Heim Theory (EHT).  EHT expands the work of Einstein and has its roots in Heim Theory, developed in the 1950s by physicist Burkhard Heim.

EHT proposes two new particles carrying gravity-like forces that could underly both “dark energy” and “dark matter”.  It is, admittedly, an outlier theory and not widely known but could provide a basis for generating gravity-like fields (both attractive and repulsive) here on Earth and propellantless propulsion for space vehicles.   As Hauser and Dröscher have pointed out, a set of skills and techniques will be required for gravity engineers once experiments currently underway yield positive results.  So too for designers once design parameters can be refined and converted into prototypes.

51fglg6F1RL._SX352_BO1,204,203,200_The book, “Introduction to Physics, Astrophysics, and Cosmology of Gravity-Like Fields” was released on Nov. 25, 2015, one hundred years to the day from the presentation by Albert Einstein of his General Theory of Relativity to the members of the Royal Prussian Academy of Science in Berlin.

Were this nascent theory without experimental evidence we might relegate it to one of dozens of constructs that go beyond the “standard model” of physics. However, new interpretations of experiments by NASA, findings about the nature of “dark matter” in galaxies, and experiments generating the equivalent gravitational effect of a white dwarf star in the laboratory suggest that not only might this theory be plausible but also that its conversion to a reproducible technology may be imminent.

As with any new discipline, establishing sets of tools and methods for designers is important. For graphic designers and writers, advancements in desktop publishing and self-publishing have built new markets for niche publications and given designers greater control of the end product.  For product designers, new digital tools for visualization, 3D modeling, 3D printing and online payments have similarly led to the “disintermediation” between designers and consumers.

The toolset for gravity designers has yet to be determined but will likely arise from other current design practices.  The wide ranging impact of the ability to manipulate fields that can levitate, repel, shield and propel has such great potential for social and economic change that well-considered forethought by designers must occur.  Without such forethought the “creative destruction” (as coined by J. Schumpeter) of a rapidly evolving breakthrough technology can be destabilizing.

This site is for those designers with the interest (and patience) to discuss how best to apply current methodologies to a new opportunity. Such advances require not just borrowing from a wide range of disciplines (a multidisciplinary approach) but the purposeful breaking of distinctions between established disciplines. Rather than relying upon a crossing or bridging of models, procedures, research and programs (an interdisciplinary approach), it requires development and maturation of merged models, establishment of open discussion and dialogue, and outreach unique to its own encompassing and new set of requirements. That is, it requires a true transdisciplinary approach.

Gravity2_0My thoughts on the scope of this new discipline were expressed in the book “Gravity 2.0” and included backgrounds on the science.

Novel physics — incomplete physics

In their book  “Introduction to Physics, Astrophysics, and Cosmology of Gravity-Like Fields”, authors Drs. Jochem Hauser and Walter Dröscher posit what they believe to be shortcomings of several mainstream ideas in physics. Below are selected outtakes from the book positioned as a brief listing of what EHT considers as incomplete or incorrect mainstream ideas in physics and what EHT offers …

In the recent book by Dröscher and Hauser, mention is made of upcoming experiments by Martin Tajmar to test the Heim experiment. Tajmar is the Professor and Chair, Institute of Aerospace Engineering Technische Universitåt Dresden where he has published on a wide range of propulsion-related topics. As such it may be useful to review recent revisions to EHT including the dropping …

Gravity Pollution – an Exploration of Terms and Roles

If the generation of gravity-like fields can be accomplished, should we consider its unencumbered usage as a potential source of pollution? What is pollution?  A human-centric description of pollution would be the “introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that causes adverse changes to our lifestyle making the environment unsafe or unsuitable”. Polluting elements can be either natural or foreign.  Oil is …

A third possible contender in new physics for energy generation

A hypothesis is just a hypothesis until it has some observational or experimental confirmation.  So it is with great interest that I recently read that Prof. Martin Tajmar, known for his testing of the EmDrive, has set his laboratory upon the task of performing experiments featuring a different potential energy generation technology that like Steorn and LENR also is an …

More than a dozen years ago I co-founded a non-profit dedicated to place-based learning, especially within metropolitan districts.  It was a time when bandwidth for connecting to the internet was still not very high for wired services and mobile connections through cellular networks had even lower connectivity rates and were very expensive. I was an early advocate for for wireless …
