Communicating with the Scientific Community
The last two years has seen the scientists at the Resonance Science Foundation busy communicating their research at science conferences around the world.Here’s a brief update of what they’ve been up to.
In November 2015 Nassim Haramein and Dr. Amira Val Baker travelled to the Royal Society in England to present their work on the cosmological constant. The poster presentation was well received by both PhD students and professors alike who were amazed and intrigued by the results.
The Royal Society is one of the oldest scientific institutions with founding and early members such as Robert Boyle, Sir Isaac Newton and James Clerk Maxwell. Its origins lie in natural philosophy and its motto 'Nullius in verba' – meaning “… 'take nobody's word for it' as an expression of the determination of Fellows to withstand the domination of authority and to verify all statements by an appeal to facts determined by experiment” – is in keeping with the ethos of the Resonance Science Foundation and was thus a great conference to attend.The four-day event began with a discussion meeting on Unifying Physics and Technology in light of Maxwell’s Equations. It was held at Carlton House, London, UK and was attended by about 150 scientists from around the world, who had come to acknowledge the similarities across physics and the need for interdisciplinary communication as a means to unify physics. The lectures ranged from Prof. Jon Butterworth questioning how far the standard model can go and Dr. Veronica Sanz discussing the theoretical landscape beyond the standard model, to Prof. Steven Bramwell presenting the latest experiments to detect emergent magnetic monopoles in spin ice, the inventor of the invisibility cloak Sir John Pendry discussing transformation optics, and Prof. Ian Walmsley looking at the progress in quantum optics and potential applications such as teleportation. A special lecture given by Frank Wilczek on ‘Unification Today’ acknowledged the need for unification of the forces and emphasized the commonality of local symmetry, that emerged from Maxwell’s equations, and should be a guide to unification. What was significantly encouraging was the long over-due recognition of the ether, which as noted by one of the attendees, Dr. Brian Fawcett of Rutherford Appleton laboratory, had never truly been proved to not exist, as is generally accepted [see Silvertooth paper].
The meeting was followed by the satellite discussion meeting Particle, Condensed Matter and Quantum Physics: Links via Maxwell’s Equations, held at Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire, UK. Chicheley Hall is a historic 18th century estate and was recently acquired by the Royal Society in partnership with the Kavli Foundation forming the Kavli Royal Society International Centre.
With the theme of unified physics this meeting similarly focused on electromagnetism, particle, condensed matter and quantum physics, with Prof. Anthony Lasenby discussing geometric algebra and its treatment of Maxwell’s equations, to Prof. Nikolay Zheludev presenting recent progress in toroidal electrodynamics. Both days featured a poster presentation session where Nassim and Amira presented their work on the cosmological constant entitled ‘The vacuum Catastrophe and Holographic Mass’.
Biophysicist William Brown was also busy attending conferences to present the team’s research on the Unified Spacememory Network. This saw him attend The First International Congress of Conscientiology, held in Portugal on 22nd to 24th of May 2015. William presented a talk entitled ‘The Unified Spacememory Network: from Cosmogenesis to Consciousness‘. The following year William presented this work closer to home when he attended The Science of Consciousness Conference, held in Tucson, Arizona on April 20th – 30th. This work has now been published in the Journal of NeuroQuantology.
In July 2016, Nassim and Amira made their way to the ancient city of Athens, Greece where they attended ATINER, the 4th International Conference on Physics. Together they gave a talk and presented their recent work on ‘The electron and the holographic mass solution‘ as presented in the Abstract Book, page 14. The presentation was well received, so much so that one of the attendees, Prof. Haiduke Sarafian of the Pennsylvania State University, spent the whole night on his presentation to account for the new results presented by Nassim and Amira.
Later in the year, November 2016, Amira presented her work on high mass X-ray binaries at the STELLA meeting held at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam, Germany. This meeting was attended by about 50 Astrophysicists who had connections with the STELLA Robotic Observatory and were interested in hearing the great results it had achieved since its ten years of operation. Amira gave a talk entitled ‘The Variable Nature of the OB star HD13831’, where she presented her results and conclusions achieved through the use of the STELLA Robotic Observatory. Again, this was well received by the attendees and the STELLA Robotic Observatory team.
