It’s that time again – yes, we have *yet another* wacko reinvention of physics that pretends to have math on its side. This time, it’s “The Electro-Magnetic Radiation Pressure Gravity Theory”, by “Engineer Xavier Borg”. (Yes, he signs all of his papers that way – it’s always with the title “Engineer”.) This one is as wacky as Neal Adams and his PMPs, except that the author seems to be less clueless.

At first I wondered if this were a hoax – I mean, “Engineer Borg”? It seems like a deliberately goofy name for someone with a crackpot theory of physics… But on reading

through his web-pages, the quantity and depth of his writing has me leaning towards believing that this stuff is legit.

It’s hard to decide how to take this apart, because there’s just *so much* of it, and it’s *all* so silly!

What Engineer Borg is on about is his revolution of physics. The central idea of his theory is that relativity is wrong – sort of. That is, on the one hand, he frequently cites relativistic effects as being valid and correct; but on the other hand, the fundamental idea of his theory is that all motion in the universe consists of orbits within orbits within orbits, all eventually centered on a *fixed, unmoving* body at the *exact center* of the universe. This is, of course, fundamentally gibberish… Relativity is fundamentally based, mathematically, on a particular kind of symmetry – and what that symmetry means is there is no preferred frame of reference. Take that away, and relativity falls apart. But Engineer Borg doesn’t let that concern him. After all, he’s got a whole new version of physics, and so he probably has his own version of relativity too.

After all, he’s reinvented just about everything else. He rejects the idea of particles of matter – the particle/wave duality is, to Engineer Borg, utter nonsense. Everything is electromagnetic waves. What we see as “particles” are really just electromagnetic “standing waves”; so, you see particles don’t really exist. They’re just a coincidence – a wave pattern that happens to be persistent because of resonance, or interference – or, well, anything that produces a standing wave. Nothing can actually *move*; what appears to be particles is just waves, and if the “standing wave” pattern is slightly unstable, you’ll get a moving wave – aka a moving particle. Does this make sense? No… The kinds of wave interference that he’s talking about just don’t work. He’s trying to create a basic source of all of these waves, and then claiming that they form *perfectly stable* interference and resonance patterns, even as things move around and interact. According to Engineer Borg, every possible interaction between these wonderful wave things always remains stable. After all, they *have to*, because otherwise, the theory wouldn’t work. Is there any math to support it? No. He waves lots of equations around at pointless times, but can’t be bothered to show how the math works for the actual *hard * stuff.

So, what creates gravity? After all, that’s the part of his theory that we started out with, right? Well, he’s actually got two different explanation of that. But hey, consistency is a just a crutch for small minds, right? First, his introduction:

This paper aims at providing a satisfying theory for the yet unkown mechanism for gravity. High frequency electromagnetic waves sourced by the fixed energetic core of the universe, referred to as Kolob, sometimes also referred to as zero point energy, is predicted from a steady state universe in oscillatory motion and pervades all space. Radiation pressure (Poynting vector) imbalance of such highly penetrating extragalactic incoming radiation, acting through all matter is held responsible for pushing matter together.

It comes back to his “universal” frame of reference gibberish. He believes that there’s a fixed point which is the exact center of the universe, and that there’s this *thing* called Kolob at that point, which is radiating waves that create everything.

One of his gravity theories is similar to Einsteinean gravity, but rewritten to be a part of his standing wave nonsense:

To visualise the effect of non-linear electromagnetic element volume (space-time) at a

centre of gravity, imagine the surface of a rubber sheet with a uniform grid drawn on

it, and visualise the grid when the rubber is pulled down at a point below its surface.

Such bending of space-time is a result of this non-linearity of the parameters present

in the dielectric volume. One method of generating a non-linear dielectric volume is to

expose the whole dielectric volume under concern to a non -linear electric field, with

the ‘centre of gravity’ being the centre of highest electric field flux density.An example of this is our planet, which has a non-linear electric field gradient

with its highest gradient near the surface. Linear gravity does not exist,

gravitational force is always non-linear (an-isotropic) pointing towards its centre.

That is earth’s g=9.8 at ground level, but decreases at higher altitudes. Linear

gravity results in a linear space-time and is the same as zero gravity. Similarly, an

electromagnetic element exposed to a linear force field will reconstruct the objects in

it at zero energy transfer. However, when exposed to a non-linear force field, an

object moving within it will experience a force imbalance in the direction of the

highest force flux density. So the attraction of matter to centres of gravity is not a

result of matter itself, but of the spacetime ‘stretching’ and ‘compression’ infront

and behind the moving object. A massless dielectric, that is space itself, would still

be ‘accelerated’ towards the point of easier reconstruction. The mass movement is just

an indication of movement of its electromagnetic constituents.

You see, the particles don’t really exist, because they’re just waves. But still,

the non-existent particles continue to warp spacetime – just like relativity says they

do – because of a “non-linear electric field gradient”. Does this create gravity? Not

really. It doesn’t work. But if you claim that gravity actually isn’t a fixed force,

but varies, and ignore the stability of things like orbits, then you can wave your

hands, throw around a lot of jargon, and pretend that it works.

Then there’s his *other* theory of gravity – this is ignores that whole

dielectric field thing, and turns it into a direct pushing force from those waves radiated by Kolob:

This paper aims at providing a satisfying theory for the yet unkown mechanism for gravity. High frequency electromagnetic waves sourced by the fixed energetic core of the universe, referred to as Kolob, sometimes also referred to as zero point energy, is predicted from a steady state universe in oscillatory motion and pervades all space. Radiation pressure (Poynting vector) imbalance of such highly penetrating extragalactic incoming radiation, acting through all matter is held responsible for pushing matter together.

So, the “zero point energy”, which he elsewhere says is the same thing as the

cosmological constant – the force that is causing the universe to expand – is

really creating a kind of pressure, which *pushes* matter together.

Does he have any math for how this works? Well, sort of. It’s actually really funny math. You see, the main reason that we know that electromagnetic waves must be the *actual* force behind gravity is… They both follow inverse-square relationships:

Despite the precise predictions of the equations of gravity when compared to experimental measurements, no one yet understands its connections with any other of the known forces. We also know that the equations for gravitational forces between two masses are VERY similar to those for electrical forces between charges, but we wonder why.

The equations governing the three different force fields are:

- Electrostatic Force F = KQ
_{1}Q_{2}/R^{2}…. K=1/4πeo, Q= charge, R = distance- Gravitational Force F = GM
_{1}M_{2}/R^{2}…. G= gravitational constant, M= mass, R = distance- Magnetic Force F = UM
_{1}M_{2}/R^{2}…. U=1/u, M= magnetic monopoles strength, R = distanceWe learn that electrostatic forces are generated by charges, gravitational forces are generated by masses, and magnetic fields are generated by magnetic poles. But can this be really true? How could three mechanisms be so similar yet so different.

Yeah… That’s pretty much it. They’re all basic inverse square relationships, therefore they *must* ultimately be the same thing. It all makes sense because he’s *also* reinvented the entire system of units – replacing SI with his own system called *ST*, which has only two units, S (space/distance) and T (time). All energy has unit T/S; all forces are in units (T/S^{2}). The three equations end up being *exactly* the same in Borg’s system, because he’s *redefined* the units so that charge, magnetic field, and mass are all

the same – so the only difference between the equations are the constants G, U, and K.

Why does that make sense? Well, because according to Engineer Borg, units analysis is fundamental to figuring out how things work. Any two things with the same unit are the same thing. So, since in Borg physics, all forces are T/S^{2}, that means

that all forces are the same thing:

Analysing the three force field equations, one immediately observes that each one has got its own constant of proportionality, but otherwise, seem to be analogous to one another. Looking at the SI units of force that is kg*m/s2 doesn’t help much, but here is where the new ST system of units comes to rescue. The similarity between them can be best explained by analyzing the space time dimensions of force itself. The dimensions of ANY force field in ST units are T/S2…. T=time, S=distance. So, we see that the inverse square law (S-2) is not something directly related to magnetism, electric fields or gravity, but is contained in the definition of force itself. The spacetime diagram shows how one can ‘pinch’ space in the time direction in the presence of a force field. The geometric relation between space and time, or the relation between time and disk surface area is the same relation between energy (T/S) and distance (S). This is also confirmed by the mechanical law Force = Energy/ distance. This means that all forces can be accounted for by electromagnetic energy, in other words

the effect of ANY force field must be electromagnetic in nature. It is therefore logically evident that the gravitation mechanism is also electromagnetic as for all other forces.

Yup, that’s it, it must be electromagnetic, because everything is electromagnetic, because the units match. And since it’s electromagnetic, and everything electromagnetic is ultimately created by “zero point energy” radiated by Kolob, that means that it’s all part of the grand revolving universe centered around Kolob. And don’t forget, because Engineer Borg can’t stress this enough: the math all works, because *the units match*.
