My Tenth Paperback
My latest paperback covers a topic from another of Einstein's mistakes. Nearly all of my books, in some way, address his mistakes and their impact on several sciences. Cosmology is tasked with explaining the particular process driving whatever we observe in the cosmos.
My book Gravitational Lens Illusions is about mechanisms which bend the path of light.
A gravitational lens is a hypothetical mechanism. Every invocation of a gravitational lens is reviewed.
These include anything that cosmologists can't explain, but their excuse is that particular observation is just an illusion caused by a gravitational lens.
These phenomena include arcs, rings, or the apparent conflict of high redshift objects near low redshift galaxies.
Einstein claimed either gravity or his space-time could bend the path of light. In reality, which means not in the special world of reativity, neither can bend the path of light. Only refaction cand bend light. Refraction occurs at a change in the medium across the path of light.
a) a straight object looking bent at the surface of water,
b) a prism,
c) rain drops creating a rainbow in your view with the Sun behind you,
d) changes in atmospheric density,
This (d) is observed during the Sun rise or set at very near to your horizon when the Sun is seen to pop up or drop down, relative to your view of the horizon.
e) changes in the solar corona's plasma density.
This (e) was observed in the solar eclipse in 1919 during the Eddington Experiment.
The results of this misleading experiment and subsequent publicity were used to proclaim Einstein's explanation of the universe is correct. With acceptance by crucial scientists, Einstein became one beyond doubt or questions.
The consequences of that acceptance of a flawed theory result in topics for books to find better explanations of reality.
The book is not long (110 pages), but I covered all instances that I found.There will always be more. This book addresses the general applications of a gravitational lens.
Insted of bringing full color high-resolution images into this black and white book (adding many pages), the book has a particular web page, having links both to the cited on-line references and to each individual story of a lens, and to their individual image(s).
Depending on your interest, you could view the images without having to read their complete stories. The book provides excerpts.
