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.

EHT and the Higgs

The Higgs boson has been in the news lately. Its detection (or at least the detection of a particle very similar to a singular Higgs) has been claimed by CERN. But as reported in various scientific publications, further analysis of the data from particle physicists at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois suggests that CERN is just about as likely to …

E-Cat and gravity generators

Over the past month there has been growing media coverage for Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat (energy catalyzer) technology. Today an article in the Boston Globe describes Rossi’s meeting with representatives from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts. He was invited by the state Senate’s minority leader, Bruce Tarr. The E-Cat is the most recent generation …

Another theory of gravitational dipoles from the vacuum

In August a study by CERN physicist Draga Slavkov Hajdukovic suggested that dark matter may be an “illusion” caused by the quantum vacuum. Currently mainstream physics assumes there is only a positive gravitational charge. Hajdukovic suggests that if matter and antimatter are gravitationally repulsive, then it would mean that the virtual particle-antiparticle pairs that exist for a limited time in …
