Dear Sweet CERN – The World Knows About Your Good Intentions

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

but now you question Einstein’s whole theory while continuing to refuse a scientific safety conference that could save the planet if he was right.

Were it not for the latter dark cloud, everyone would find this childish behavior cute — an ingenious plot.

Time is ripe to admit the long requested Einstein conference before the LHC can go on.

Everyone feels so now.

Call for Help

Dear Mr. Secretary of State Westerwelle, Esq.:

No one on the planet in a high position in science or politics or the media believes me that I have given a proof which implies that the “safety conference” requested by the Cologne Administrative Court on January 27, 2011 is necessary immediately.

My excuse is that not a single scientist on the planet openly contradicts the Telemach theorem on which the proof of danger is based. (Telemach was the son of Ulysses, but TeLeMaCh also means the essence of Einstein’s early main result on gravity.)

Economics and Survival: An In-space 2-for-1 Bargain

Posted by in categories: economics, existential risks, habitats, space, sustainability

There is growing recognition that the Moon is the logical next step for sustainably opening space to human settlement. It is now confirmed that both lunar poles contain appreciable quantities of ice containing water and also carbon and nitrogen containing compounds. Since the Moon is always only a 3-day trip away, it easily beats low-gravity asteroids as the most economic place to mine water ice. Similarly, since the Moon has only a 3-second roundtrip communications delay, teleoperated robots could mine and process the lunar ice at a fraction of what human miners would cost. That ice, brought back to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) could establish a new space economy including on-orbit refueling, boosting large communications satellites to GEO, sending tourists around or even to the Moon, and facilitating NASAs Beyond Earth Orbit activities. So the Moon is a great place to develop economic in-space resources.

But, what does all of this do with survival?

Amongst those people who understand extinction risks to humanity, it is generally recognized that an off-Earth, self-sufficient colony would go a very long ways to ensuring the survival of humanity as a species. An orbiting colony would not be a good choice because, if the Earth’s biosphere were contaminated with an ecophage, the Earth itself would not anymore be a source of supplies, and Earth orbit contains no resources except for sunlight. Mars, an asteroid, or a distant moon could be a location for an off-Earth colony, but all of these would be considerably more expensive to establish than on the Moon. For those of us who think it prudent that we should purchase “insurance” against the extinction of humanity sooner rather than later, the least expensive location makes the most sense. So the Moon is a great place to establish a colony for the purpose of survival.

Interesting, so the Moon is the best place for both economics and survival. Perhaps the two could be combined into a single program. But, in the Age of Austerity, it is unlikely that our governments are going to fund a large new space program. So how can this be done economically?

Emergency Proposal for the UN general Assembly – 66th Session – Opening These Minutes

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

Dear UNGA:

The Security Council may have informed you about the fact that a Cologne court asked the German government – and implicitly you – to immediately order a “safety conference” because there is scientific evidence that the LHC experiment at CERN is currently producing miniature black holes that it (1) cannot detect and which (b) can shrink the earth to 2 cm in perhaps 5 years’ time.

My Dear Theoretical Physics Colleagues at CERN and Across the Planet

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

Please, sacrifice a minute of your precious time to show your chaos colleague at Tubingen where the error lies in his generalization of Einstein’s seminal T-theorem (gravitational clock slow-down), the T-L-M-Ch theorem.

The latter says that besides the gravitational clock slowdown T, there is a proportional gravitational length increase L (invisible from above), a proportional gravitational rest-mass-energy decrease M, and a proportional gravitational charge decrease Ch. (…t-l-m-.pdf )

The three corollaries to Einstein’s T radically change the properties of black holes. For example, black holes become undetectable to CERN’s detectors if successfully produced there – for instance, at this very moment.

The world public sees that no single scientist on the planet contradicts me but all scientists support CERN. This is a volatile situation. I think now is the time that the Nobel committee name a defender of CERN’s while the underground cannons in Geneva pause.

“Heros in the Plane 93 Changed History”

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

I just listened-in to the hymn “Amazing Grace” played in honor of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

I pledge to make this timeless melody the planet’s hymn in case it survives the present assault by CERN.

Einstein vs. SCUN

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

Einstein’s oldest gravitation result shows the planet is being put at acute risk by CERN.

Austria’s clerics currently follow a “call to disobedience” against taking orders from the bishops. In the same vein, the planet’s journalists could follow a “call to disobedience” against taking orders — from whom? From the SCUN, the United Nations Security Council.

If the SCUN commits treason against its constituency by refusing the scientific safety conference — who else but the journalists are the new planetary governing board? Einstein appeals to the remaining friends of humankind: please, report on CERN’s assault.

The assault on earth disappears the very moment Telemach – the new Einstein result – is disproved. So far, no one was strong enough. If the press does not report, how can the hoped-for scientist or pupil to save us all by saving CERN, be found?

Imagine you dreamed you had a formula that could save everyone – and then you awake and it is true. It is almost like dreaming to be a bishop and then awaking and it is true. Strawberry fields forever.

Meek Boldness

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

I am meekly asking every inhabitant of the planet to help me find a fault with Telemach.

And I am boldly asking the mighty of the world to obey my call for an immediate stop of CERN until this hoped-for fault has been found.

Like the ship’s boy who saw an iceberg and tries to wake up the captain while hoping to have been the victim of an hallucination.

Telemach is the discovery that forces me to call fire. The name of Ulysses’s son here stands for T-L-M-Ch. T is time, L is length, M is mass and Ch is charge. All 4 change with height inside an accelerating rocketship and hence in gravity.

“All Physicists“ Stand Behind CERN’s Suicide Experiment – but None with His Own Name

Posted by in categories: existential risks, particle physics

Dear planetary citizens, dear Security Council: This fact is psychological dynamite. Please, find at least a single witness who testifies on behalf of CERN. Otherwise this is the end, if not of the planet, of the United Nations.
