Bermuda (or "Devil's") Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle (a.k.a. the Devil's Triangle) is a triangular area in the Atlantic Ocean bounded roughly at its points by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Legend has it that many people, ships and planes have mysteriously vanished in this area. How many have mysteriously disappeared depends on who is doing the locating and the counting. The size of the triangle varies from 500,000 square miles to three times that size, depending on the imagination of the author. (Some include the Azores, the Gulf of Mexico, and the West Indies in the "triangle.") Some trace the mystery back to the time of Columbus. Even so, estimates range from about 200 to no more than 1,000 incidents in the past 500 years. Howard Rosenberg claims that in 1973 the U.S. Coast Guard answered more than 8,000 distress calls in the area and that more than 50 ships and 20 planes have gone down in the Bermuda Triangle within the last century.

Many theories have been given to explain the extraordinary mystery of these missing ships and planes. Evil extraterrestrials, residue crystals from Atlantis, evil humans with anti-gravity devices or other weird technologies, and vile vortices from the fourth dimension are favorites among fantasy writers. Strange magnetic fields and oceanic flatulence (methane gas from the bottom of the ocean) are favorites among the technically-minded. Weather (thunderstorms, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, high waves, currents, etc.) bad luck, pirates, explosive cargoes, incompetent navigators, and other natural and human causes are favorites among skeptical investigators.

There are some skeptics who argue that the facts do not support the legend, that there is no mystery to be solved, and nothing that needs explaining.The number of wrecks in this area is not extraordinary, given its size, location and the amount of traffic it receives. Many of the ships and planes that have been identified as having disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle were not in the Bermuda Triangle at all. Investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances. Thus, any explanation, including so-called scientific ones in terms of methane gas being released from the ocean floor, magnetic disturbances, etc., are not needed. The real mystery is how the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery at all.

The modern legend of the Bermuda Triangle began soon after five Navy planes [Flight 19] vanished on a training mission during a severe storm in 1945. The most logical theory as to why they vanished is that lead pilot Lt. Charles Taylor’s compass failed. The trainees' planes were not equipped with working navigational instruments. The group was disoriented and simply, though tragically, ran out of fuel. No mysterious forces were likely to have been involved other than the mysterious force of gravity on planes with no fuel. It is true that one of the rescue planes blew up shortly after take-off, but this was likely due to a faulty gas tank rather than to any mysterious forces.

Over the years there have been dozens of articles, books, and television programs promoting the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. In his study of this material, Larry Kushe found that few did any investigation into the mystery. Rather, they passed on the speculations of their predecessors as if they were passing on the mantle of truth. Of the many uncritical accounts of the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, perhaps no one has done more to create this myth than Charles Berlitz, who had a bestseller on the subject in 1974. After examining the 400+ page official report of the Navy Board of Investigation of the disappearance of the Navy planes in 1945, Kushe found that the Board wasn't baffled at all by the incident and did not mention alleged radio transmissions cited by Berlitz in his book. According to Kushe, what isn't misinterpreted by Berlitz is fabricated. Kushe writes: "If Berlitz were to report that a boat were red, the chance of it being some other color is almost a certainty." (Berlitz, by the way, did not invent the name; that was done by Vincent Gaddis in "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle," which appeared in the February, 1964, issue of Argosy, a magazine devoted to fiction.)

In short, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery by a kind of communal reinforcement among uncritical authors and a willing mass media to uncritically pass on the speculation that something mysterious is going on in the Atlantic.

Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle (also known as Devil's Triangle and Devil's Sea) is a nearly half-million square-mile (1.2 million km2) area of ocean roughly defined by Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and the southernmost tip of Florida. This area is noted for
a high incidence of unexplained losses of ships, small boats, and aircraft..

The Bermuda Triangle has become popular through representation by the mass media, in which it is a paranormal site in which the known laws of physics are either violated, altered, or both.

While there is a common belief that a number of ships and airplanes have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances in this region, the United States Coast Guard and others disagree with that assessment, citing statistics demonstrating that the number of incidents involving lost ships and aircraft is no larger than that of any other heavily traveled region of the world.

There is a common belief that a number of ships and airplanes have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances in the region called
Bermuda Triangle. Over 100 airplane disappearances and over
1000 lives lost since 1945

Many of the alleged mysteries have proven not so mysterious or unusual upon close examination, with inaccuracies and misinformation about the cases often circulating and recirculating over the decades.

The triangle is an arbitrary shape, crudely marking out a corridor of the Atlantic, stretching northward from the West Indies, along the North American seaboard, as far as the Carolinas. In the Age of Sail, ships returning to Europe from parts south would sail north to the Carolinas, then turn east for Europe, taking advantage of the prevailing wind direction across the North Atlantic. Even with the development of steam and internal-combustion engines, a great deal more shipping traffic was (and still is) found nearer the US coastline than towards the empty centre of the Atlantic. The Triangle also loosely conforms with the course of the Gulf Stream as it leaves the West Indies, and has always been an area of volatile weather. The combination of distinctly heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous weather meant that a certain, also distinctly large, number of vessels would flounder in storms.

Given the historical limitations of communications technology, most of those ships that sank without survivors would disappear without a trace. The advent of wireless communications, radar, and satellite navigation meant that the unexplained disappearances largely ceased at some point in the 20th Century. The occasional vessel still sinks, but rarely without a trace. It should be noted that both the concept and the name of the Bermuda Triangle date only to the 1960s, and were the products of an American journalist.

Other areas often purported to possess unusual characteristics are the Devil's Sea, located near Japan, and the Marysburgh Vortex or the Great Lakes Triangle, located in eastern Lake Ontario.

Some researchers reject the dogmatic idea that the New World was isolated prior to 1492. There is some compelling evidence that the ancient peoples from Mesopotamia may have crossed the Atlantic ages before Columbus.

The sacred tree was an extremely important symbol in the palace of Ashurnasirpal, appearing on reliefs in virtually every room of the palace. It was also used in textile patterns, on stamp and cylinder seals, and in ivory carvings. It represented both the king and Ashur, the chief god of Assyria, and was also a symbol of the fertility of the land.

Abstract

Gravity has always been a mystery…

With thanks' mainly to Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein we have achieved some knowledge; however gravity is still not fully understood. This arises because we don’t fully understand the following:

  • The cause of gravity, is it a force?
  • How can we involve a force without disturbing space-time.
  • How can space transfer a force, if gravity really is a force.
  • How the galaxies and solar systems were created.
  • How the heavenly bodies were created.
  • How matter amasses.
  • Is dark matter and dark energy are connected to gravity.
  • How black wholes are created.

A new expression of gravity, "Space Curves" was introduced 100 years ago and has since been a famous and usable expression, especially for a pure geometric/mathematical understanding.

The main problem is that we don't know much about what space really is. Our immediate impression is that space is nothing.

How can 'nothing' curve?

To reach a deeper understanding of gravity, it is obvious that first of all we need to better understand how space plays a role in the gravity phenomena, and if force is really passing through it.

We don’t have many options when it comes to better understanding space. The expression 'curvature of space' has not been able to take our understanding further in the last 100 years.

We also know that space can expand as mean it must also be able to contract.

So we have 3 apparently different properties of space

  • Curvature
  • Expansion
  • Contraction

We simply don't know what 'curved space' really is.

It seems incredibly unnecessary that space would have 3 different deforming properties.

This article will show what happens when we equate curvature of space with contraction of space.

In doing so three properties will be united into one simple concept; "a flexible space", which means that space is not quite as mysterious as before.

There are several factors that support the idea that such simplicities are relevant. We will look deeper into these factors.

Whether one fully accepts such a simplification, is not necessary, for understanding this article.

What has changed is so far only an expression, it's not necessary to change or violate anything else. Einstein's theory of space-time will remain intact.

All that by way of introduction is assumed is that curved space is in reality contracted space, the opposite of expanded space.

Assuming this will give us an interesting main tread. This article will try to follow this main tread to see where it brings us.

Even if the expression: "Matter Contract Space" seems to be close to the well-known: "Curvature of Space", this article will show that such simple changes are merely in expression. In reality this theory opens, not some, but all the doors to fully understanding the cause of gravity and more.

Well, this “immediately” sounds too good to be true. Think about attempting to solve one mystery. Most likely some of your findings will contradict other information. Matter contract space seems to solve 10 to 12 huge mysteries, and is met with little by way of contradiction or opposition. Even further, "Matter contract space" leads us to a more complete understanding of existing theories.

This assumption will quickly lead to the conclusion that our understanding of gravity has been based in part on a serious misunderstanding;

For the last 300 years we have accepted that our knowledge about how two or several fields of gravity affect (and counteract) each other was correct and that this expression of a law of gravity should be used to understand how one single field of gravity counteracts itself.

It is forgivable that over the past hundred years have thought like we have, but not that we still believe like we do. Over the last 50 years have gained ability to verify if our believe was really true. This will be further covered in the third chapter; Dark Matter. (As we all know physics is science based not on what we believe but on measurements and experiments.)

Dark matter, dark energy, and black holes remain mysteries only because we for much to long have failed to understand how gravity build up itself from its own center.

The Nature of Black Holes and Quasars

by Doug Yurchey

Is Stephen Hawking right? Is Professor Leonard Susskind of Stanford correct? Does matter disappear in a Black Hole? If we accept the principle that information-matter-energy wipes out of existence in the center of a Black Hole and, eventually, the Black Hole itself will disappear altogether...well, wait a minute: What happened to all the stuff that was swallowed by the vortex? How can material dematerialize and be gone from our real universe? Does not this break the basic Law of Physics that Matter/Energy cannot be destroyed, and only change in form?

For Black Holes to do what they do, all the laws of Physics must be off! Things just vaporizing should not, normally, happen. Where is the balance in nature? If there is a Yin, there must also be a Newtonian Yang; action, reaction. If you go up, you must come down. How can we believe in anything if our basic principles of nature are not within firm foundation?

The entire concept of a Black Hole, zapping matter and even light-energy out of existence, must disturb the very core of the physical scientist. How can this be? Yet, there is all the evidence for the existence of 3D, space-suckers that pull in matter from every direction to a single point. Einstein's prediction of Black Holes was realized. We know for certain of vast multitudes of Black Holes that warp space/time. Many of these powerful vacuums are truly extracting material from suns close to the vortex.

Black Holes should not exist, yet they do. How can our world ever be trusted or ever be the same again? Before astro-physicists and theoretical scientists freak-out, they should consider that the answers to many of these questions have been with us all along.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A BLACK HOLE, STAYS IN A BLACK HOLE!

We should not extrapolate that if it occurs in a Black Hole, then it could happen here on the streets or anywhere. The Laws of Physics are not the same everywhere. The physical laws of riding on a light beam are very different than the laws governing the stationary world. Because one can zap out of existence there, does not mean one can disintegrate here.

There is a phenomenon in space, on the outer edges of the known/observable universe, that functions as a REVERSE BLACK HOLE or the opposite of a Black Hole. The following is a letter to one of the participants in the great, on-going, cosmological debate: Professor Leonard Susskind.

Subject: just saw you on TV
Hello Professor Susskind,

Just saw the documentary on TV concerning Black Holes, with yourself and Stephen Hawking...and I wanted to run a few ideas by you. Do objects disappear from our universe via Black Holes? Yes, and this does not break the Law that matter or energy cannot be destroyed. The matter or information pouring into Black Holes truly leaves our world, but does not get destroyed. They are not the same thing. The matter is not destroyed in a singularity at the end of a FUNNEL called a Black Hole. The info-matter goes somewhere! Black Holes are funnels, but they do not terminate; not in a final, crushing sense. It terminates as an 'aperture.' What is at the end of just about every funnel I know? A HOLE!

The info-matter-energy through a Black Hole leaves our universe...and comes out another universe.

I believe there is EVIDENCE to answer the big question as to: What eventually happens to the matter through a Black Hole? I think there is something in physics that is the beautiful and perfect answer - maybe, I should say: something in the universe. It would appear the very opposite of a Black Hole! It would certainly not be BLACK, but busting out with ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF ENERGY! As Black Holes suck in from all angles, this thing would shoot out energy-matter in all directions. These energy-orbs would be total anomalies with vast amounts of energy that other stellar bodies do not have. Is there something, on the outer edges of our universe, that EMITS INCREDIBLE AMOUNTS OF ENERGY? They would be relatively small, yet be AMAZING, FOUNTAINS OF ENERGY that rival the amount of many galaxies.

Of course, you know what I am talking about Prof. Susskind...QUASARS...they are White Holes and are the other-ends of Black Holes! If you think this is a revelation of a Black Hole, look at it from the Quasar's point of view. It's not an object, it's a HOLE! Is that not a more logical explanation, when you consider the gobs of stuff JUST APPEARING, and radiating out in all directions from NOTHINGNESS? They are producing matter-energy as Black Holes are hoovering them away. Quasars are holes or drains as universal stuff from the sink pours down to a micro-universe, and so on and so on...

Why has no one in Astronomy, Physics, etc ever placed QUASARS on the other-end of BLACK HOLES? Go in a Black Hole, come out a Quasar. Yin, Yang. Up, Down. No energy lost, it just switched levels. Is it just too inconceivable that universes are within universes? Planets and suns ARE orbitting, molecular bodies, to someone - it's all relative.

I believe the closest person to the truth in a Unified Field Theory of Everything was DR. SEUSS! He wrote 'Horton Hears a Who?' A master work of life on many levels - all at different SIZES. Life in a dust speck, and within that life is a dust speck with life... Black Holes could be the means to bridge these worlds - I personally believe we survive a Black Hole crossing in the same way we are not aware we're all moving at light-speed NOW.

I also believe the universe curves in these WARPED WAYS, we have to ski the curves of space if we traverse the universe and that higher life forms out there DO use these warps in one, big transit system. Maybe what we assume is a natural phenomenon, just appears that way...and was actually artificially created and might still be in use.

Just some ideas for you to chew on. Hope you make contact. If you could pass on this email to your friend/rival Stephen, I WOULD BE THRILLED!...to hear any comments, thanks.

Before seeing the Science Channel documentary challenging the work of Hawking, this writer was not a fan of Stephen Hawking. To imagine a 'singularity,' where, at the end of a Black Hole, all things are CRUSHED...I thought was an absurd, fantastic idea that could not possibly be true. The 'singularity' professor became world famous, even appearing on Star Trek TNG because of a faulty theory.

Now, I appreciate Hawking much more for 'sticking to his guns' no matter what his colleagues believed. Matter-information WAS disappearing out of existence! The math, the evidence, truly reveals the 'funneling' nature of Black Holes. The problem is discovering the ultimate outcome of what is caught within the grasp of the vortex.

Hawking's (and mine) personal hero is Galileo, another stubborn fellow who went where the physical evidence took him; damn the critics!

Fairly recently, Hawking gave a talk where he refuted his earlier work of an 'Information Paradox.' Basically, his new explanation was that other universes exist that do not have Black Holes! Somehow, this idea balances the universes (like ours) that have Black Holes.

This writer does not mean to question Professor Hawking, but that does not seem to balance the Universe. What we should be searching for is a YANG to a Black Hole's YIN. An anomaly in nature that inexplicably gushes with an extraordinary quantity of energy-matter-information in all directions is what balances the Black Hole Equation. Where are the incredible fountains of energy that radiate something from nothing as Black Holes reduce something to nothing?

The beautiful solution, on the other side of the Equation, is the mysterious Quasar. Quasars are just as bizarre and as space/time bending as Black Holes. Black Holes equal negative Quasars and the reverse is true. The 'event horizon' of a Black Hole must correspond to the 'aperture' of a Quasar, its opposite counterpart.

Quasi-Stellar Objects stand at the extreme, distant reaches of the known universe. When we observe these incredibly powerful phenomenon, we are actually viewing the other side of Black Holes. Relativity; depending on what side of the 'aperture' you are, that determines your view. Possibly, and logically: It is the Quasar that resides at the far end of a Black Hole Funnel. (Tunnel).

From our universe, an object enters the flow of a Black Hole as a particle caught in a vortex like water down a drain. Unbelievably...the object is SHRUNK, without harm, to a universe on our atomic level. [Remember: the atomic level is relative. One's micro-universe is another one's Macro-Universe].

But, from that other microscopic world, looking back at the aperture (Black Hole center) we would observe a Quasar, a White Hole.

How can this writer jump to the conclusion that entities or material things thrust through the awesome Black Hole would survive the journey? When we photograph some Quasars, there are huge jets of matter-debris-energy stretched and extending out the distance of many light-years. It is reasonable that these 'jets' are material planets and whole solar systems shooting out the Quasar at incredible speeds. Examine the jet in the above photographic negative. Something has been expelled.

But, all is relative. Those upon the jet, whatever it is, are not being squashed or threaded. It is only our VIEW that shows the stretching. For example, you have seen high-speed photographs of a fast-moving baseball or tennis ball. The camera has captured a relative moment of the orb's motion and the object appears STRETCHED. The sphere is no longer spherical, but a LINE. The truth is the ball is fine and undamaged. By the same token, ourselves and our planet are really traveling at unfathomable velocities, yet we observe a relatively stationary world. Gravity Waves (another Einstein prediction that came true) also warp all of the physical universe constantly. Yet, we remain intact and unharmed with only the illusion of an unwavering world.

Nearly everything that applies to traversing a Black Hole can also be said for traveling at light-speed. Passengers in light-beam saucers certainly survive the hyper jumps through space. To the crew moving at warp-speed, they are not moving at all; it is the universe that beams in the opposite direction!

It is possible to 'run-off' or leave our universe by traveling the speed of light and beyond. The speed of light is a physical-limit to our world. Everything within our particular, small realm called the OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE...travels from 0 to the speed of light-limit. Go faster, (which IS possible) and you move to the NEXT universe going that direction also at the speed of light. [Read: Doug Yurchey's 'Light-Speed Universes' article]. A stationary world would suddenly APPEAR around you, to you the light-speeder.

One can go faster than light, but not within one universe. The speed of light is the ultimate Speed Limit to (probably) each of the universes. There are certainly ways to fold time/space and not experience Time-Dilation by going around it.

Conclusion: Here is another way that matter/information/life/things can DISAPPEAR from our world. They can run-off our universe by moving very, very, very fast! This also means that matter/information/life/things can APPEAR or enter our world by simply traveling beyond their world's light-speed...disappearing from that world...and materializing here.

Either falling through a hole or running off the page, we can entirely leave this place and not be destroyed.

Returning to Black Holes/Quasars, notice how Quasars are always perfectly round without detail. Quasars are not nebulae, clusters or galaxies. Scientists and astronomers regard these Quasi-Stellar-Objects as objects. Because they appear 'stellar' does not mean they are, in truth, real starlike concentrations that are commonly known. Quasars' red-shifts go off the charts. They do not function similar to any stellar objects. One could say, Quasars are too distant to reveal any kind of details. Or, they are not objects at all...but, NEGATIVE SPACES.

If a hole is drilled through a wooden board and light was beamed through the hole, it might seem as if a round 'object' radiated with light-energy. The same idea of mistaking a hole for an object could be what keeps scientists from understanding the true nature of Quasars and their counterparts, Black Holes.

Have I solved the mystery of Black Holes and Quasars? Quantum Mechanics tends to argue against the idea that we are aboard an Earth-electron orbiting our sun, an atomic nucleus. Yet, the Field of Everything is Unified; stars and planets are different combinations of molecules! Time is relative on each of the levels. What is that larger world like which we are only the size of sub-atomic particles? And, the answer must be: Probably, the same type of universe as our smaller world.

Quantum Mechanics does not have all the answers and might be in error. Could the principle of Quantum Mechanics learn a few things from Dr. Seuss?
