Twin Flights and the Dumb Stats

Contrary to the claims of the dumb scientists, the atomic clocks’ readings in the historical twin flight experiment actually didn’t obey the formulae of the relativity religion, neither from the perspective of the earth bound observer nor from the perspective of the on-flight observers. So, in their desperate attempt to rescue their religion and prove their time dilation delusion, the relativists have introduced ‘proper time’ and the ‘centre of earth observer’. Actually there isn’t anything like ‘proper time’ in the original version or the ‘old testament’ of relativity religion!

But even from the perspective of ‘centre of Earth’, I don’t think that the atomic clocks that were carried on the flights ticked exactly as per the stupid formulas of relativity. If they really did, there wouldn’t have been any need to rely upon the ‘magical’ statistics to support their religious predictions. Let me explain that.

Apparently, in the twin flight experiment, the experimenters carried four atomic clocks on each flight. As all the clocks were synchronised before the take off, and because the clocks in each flight were subjected to same velocity and gravity and acceleration, we would expect that all the four clocks on each flight would show exactly the same reading (as dictated by the relativity religion) even after going around the earth several times.

But that didn’t happen. For example, if we look at the data from the twin flight experiment, we can see that the east bound clocks differed from the ground clock by 59ns plus minus 10ns (where 10 is the standard deviation). In other words if one east bound clock differed by 69ns, another east bound clock differed by 49ns with the ground clock. So there was a difference of at least 20ns between the clocks on the east bound flight (In fact that would be much more than 20ns if we look at the actual readings of the clocks. See the relationship between range and standard deviation http://statistics.about.com/od/Descriptive-Statistics/a/Range-Rule-For-Standard-Deviation.htm).

That is each of the four clocks had ticked differently despite being synchronised at the beginning and travelling at the same velocity/ acceleration/ gravity. How to explain this difference? Shall we blame it was the Time which ran differently for each clock on the east bound flight and hence the incongruence? But that would be stupid even as per the standards of the stupid religion of relativity.

The fact that all the clocks in the east bound flight didn’t show the same reading just proves that even atomic clocks are prone to errors like any other clocks. It would be stupid to accept standard errors (however small it may be) in the analysis here. Accepting standard errors mean accepting the influence of some hidden/unknown variables on the functioning of the atomic clocks. When unknown influences could affect the functioning of atomic clocks, then why not motion and gravity affect them in a similar way? So how can we swear upon those ‘errors’ in the atomic clocks’ readings caused by differences in motion and gravity as proof of time dilation?

So we can only make one of the two following conclusions out of the twin flight experiment:
1) Either we have to accept that even atomic clocks get affected by various factors (known and unknown) like other clocks. So the observed differences in the atomic clock readings can’t be taken as proof of time dilation.

2) Or if we have to interpret the different readings of the atomic clocks as proof of Time dilation, then we must accept that relativity theory utterly failed to predict/ explain the Time dilation experienced by each atomic clock (despite all the fudging and ‘inventing’ mythical concepts like ‘proper time’).

Coming to our original question that “why the atomic clocks got affected as ‘exactly’ predicted by the mathematics of GR and SR?”, the clocks didn’t actually get affected as exactly predicted by relativity. Rather the observed variations in the behaviour/ticking of the atomic clocks can be better explained by the spinning Ether model that I have proposed to explain gravity. Actually, atomic clocks don’t get slowed with faster motion or stronger gravity unlike what the deluded physicists imagine. They in fact do the opposite i.e. they tick faster with faster motion in a medium. Thus atomic clocks don’t behave differently from the pendulum clocks.

Here is the explanation for that. The tension in a string varies depending upon whether the string is at rest or whether it is moving with respect to the surrounding medium. As a string moves in a medium, the string gets stretched/ deformed i.e. the tension in the string increases. And as its tension increase, its frequency of oscillation increases. Similarly, when a tuning fork is moved fast in a medium, its prongs get deformed or stretched and its frequency of oscillation increases. Same must be the case with atomic clocks and pendulum clocks. That is, the clocks actually oscillate/tick faster when they move with respect to the medium. And the faster the clock moves, the faster it ticks!

In the twin flight experiment, though both the flights moved with equal velocity with respect to the ground observer, the west ward flight moved at a much higher velocity than the east ward flight with respect to the ether medium. (The reason is that the west ward flight moved against the ether wind while the east ward flight moved in the same direction as the ether wind). That explains why the clocks in west ward flight ticked faster and the east ward clocks ticked slower. The situation of the ‘stationary’ ground clocks is in between the above two. There is absolutely no need to bring in ‘the center of earth’ observer or invent mythical notions like ‘proper time’ etc, to explain the results of the twin flight experiment.
