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.  EHT has its roots in Heim Theory, a polymetric tensor theory developed in the 1950s by physicist Burkhard Heim.  Heim, a recluse disabled during WWII, made some errors in the maths underpinning his theory describing six sub-dimensions of space.  However, the works of Dröscher and Hauser have corrected those errors and moved EHT well beyond Heim’s original theory.  Their framework suggests new understandings for dark matter, dark energy and gravitation.

EHT proposes two new extremely weak gravity-like forces to be added to Newtonian gravity.  Under unique conditions these forces can be amplified and controlled in a manner analogous to superconductivity.    It is, admittedly, an outlier theory 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 this theory might have merit and that its conversion to a controllable technology may be inevitable.

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.

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.

New Tajmar Paper – The role of Helium

A new publication by Dr. Tajmar (with Plesescu and Seigert) is entitled, “Anomalous Fiber Optic Gyroscope Signals Observed above Spinning Rings at Low Temperature”. It can be accessed HERE. In the article, Tajmar confirms his earlier results reporting that, “our signals are up to 18 orders of magnitude larger” compared to classical frame-dragging spin-coupling predictions of general relativity. But there …

Dröscher’s Other… More Controversial Theory of Propulsion

One goal of the work of Dröscher, now made more tangible through his collaboration with Tajmar, is that of propulsive fields achievable of space flight. However a more controversial and advanced propulsion aspect of Dröscher and Häuser’s theory has not been mentioned in their publications in recent years, even though they apparently have not abandoned it. Even among talk of …

Gravitophotons and magnetic coupling

EHT (Extended Heim Theory) posits the symmetry breaking of neutral gravitophotons into two types: attractive and repulsive. Though these two types are opposite, they apparently are not equal. Last week, hdeasy wrote in PhysOrgForum: “The reason that only one form of force is produced by the gravitophotons is that the coupling constants for the two sorts are different. Only for …

gmod institute stakeholders

Once gravity modification has been demonstrated as a plausible future technology, stakeholders from the academic, governmental and private sectors should be included as gMOD Institute collaborators. Public policy planning can not afford to lag far behind since the technology would have the potential to make obsolete some established industries while allowing others to flourish. Threatened industries might initiate lobbying efforts …

The Gravity Modification Institute

In December of 2006 I began my inquires on the formation of a study group on gravity modification at the University of Minnesota.  See document here: Download file. In early 2007 I approached the  Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs’ Center for Science, Technology and Public Policy to initiate seminars and information sessions.  My hope was that these seminars …

Droscher Article Preparation and Possible Patent

It has recently been reported by hdeasy in the PhysorgForum that Walter Droscher is preparing an article for peer review.  Droscher is co-author with Jochem Hauser on papers promoting Extended Heim Theory (EHT) as the theoretical basis for Dr. Tajmar’s gMOD results.  Droscher is a former collaborator with Burkhard Heim and is a researcher at the Institut für Grenzgebiete der …

Independent Support of Tajmar’s Theory?

[NOTE:  What follows is revised from the original posting] This is interesting. A team at Princeton found that the materials for Type II high temperature superconductivity (HTSC) are different from that of Type I low temperature superconductivity (LTSC) in yet another way. LTSC is found in elements such as niobium and lead, and HTSC in certain ceramic copper oxide compounds.  LTSC …

The Omnipresent Boson: Part 2 – Connections to Metamaterials

Bosons could be a common element in gMOD experiments.  Tajmar points to bosons as the basis for his gMOD effect.  At superconducting temperatures electrons (normally fermions) form massive bosonic pairs (called Cooper pairs).  In their original 2006 paper de Matos and Tajmar described the use of Type I superconductors (niobium and lead) in three years of experiments.  According to their …

The Omnipresent Boson: Part 1 – Anecdotal Inventors

Though Dr. Tajmar and his colleagues including Clovis de Matos and Walter Droscher are in general (though not complete) agreement on the theory behind gravitomagnetic field modification they represent only a few of the researchers in gMOD.  Mention of the gravitomagnetic effect goes back as far as Heaviside in the 1880s.  Researchers include academics, but also inventors and, admittedly, some …

enhancing local industries

I’ve mentioned previously how gMOD could enhance Minnesota’s economy by turning part of Duluth Airport into a spaceport for export and shipping to other locations on the globe… or even beyond our globe.  This capability would expand existing port facility capabilities in Duluth.  What other industries in Minnesota would benefit from similar adoption of gMOD technology to enhance our local …
