Global warming explained

Yes, its… well I’m not quite sure what it it, but its wacky, and all the planets are taking part. See here. Page 1 is only silly; but page 2 gets seriously wacky:

The “cause and effect” of these remarkable planetary transformations, we believe, is explained by appealing to a new form of Physics — not yet embraced by most of mainstream science. In fact, this is an “old Physics” — once the centerpiece of 19th Century, pre-quantum reality. At its most fundamental, it is a Physics based on the literal accessibility of “higher dimensions.”

This “higher dimensional/hyperdimensional” description is not just an abstract concept, left over from a few mathematicians a hundred years ago — but is a serious, quantifiable new model, regarding the real domain of energies that invisibly flow into and out of our “three-dimensional” reality… literally creating in the process all of physical matter… as well as its observed, three-dimensional, highly complex interactions.

In addition to its fundamental hyperdimensional component, this “new Physics” is intimately coupled to a modified concept of a spatial “aether.” This “aether,” however, is distinctly different from another old 19th Century concept – an “electromagnetic aether,” proposed then as a medium (analogous to air or water) necessary to carry rhythmic light and radio vibrations across “empty space.” This “new aether” also has no connection to the now popular term “zero point energy” — the current quantum mechanics description of vacuum processes proposed by mainstream physics to generate matter and energy from empty space.

And I *think* they are serious. But I didn’t dare read page 3.

    This is the same site that ran Mars Rover images through a photoshop filter and said that the rocks were “obviously” metal artefacts.

    Aetherometry? Does that mean the Correias have been vindicated? ;)

    How could you doubt an article that cites the authors of this masterpiece? http://www.aetherometry.com/antiwikipedia/awp_index.html

    Lubos Motl will be excited about this new application of extradimensions. It’s connected to string theory via Nobel Laureate Josephson’s “Mental Vacuum State” ESP Junction:

    String Theory, Universal Mind, and the Paranormal
    Authors: Brian D. Josephson
    Comments: 20KB HTML file. To appear in the Proceedings of the Second European Samueli Symposium, Freiburg, October 2003. In this version minor errors have been corrected, and a concluding comment added concerning classification. Keywords: ESP, string theory, anthropic principle, thought bubble, universal mind, mental state
    Subj-class: General Physics

    A model consistent with string theory is proposed for so-called paranormal phenomena such as extra-sensory perception (ESP). Our mathematical skills are assumed to derive from a special ‘mental vacuum state’, whose origin is explained on the basis of anthropic and biological arguments, taking into account the need for the informational processes associated with such a state to be of a life-supporting character. ESP is then explained in terms of shared ‘thought bubbles’ generated by the participants out of the mental vacuum state. The paper concludes with a critique of arguments sometimes made claiming to ‘rule out’ the possible existence of paranormal phenomena.

    I see C4 will be “explaining” GW on Thursday this week. It’s all the sun, apparently. From the few previews I’ve read, it looks like the usual suspects saying the usual things.

    Awesome. I am going to examine some “hyper-chemistry”
