22 March 2013 The End of the Road?

Background and Discussion of the article

Response of Journalists

6 July 2013. Three months. As I predicted to third parties, none of those listed below have responded.

No accredited expert in electromagnetic theory can make any written comment

on published experimental results which throw doubt on their theory.

If one of them did, he would be marginalized by his peers.

The same applies to "The Catt Question" and "The Second Catt Question" .

The Forrest Bishop Aphorism ; Where are they?

Dear Professor Wainwright,

I note in the www you say; “I joined Brunel University London in 2011 as Professor of Sociology of Science, Health & Culture,”

I would like those involved in Sociology of Science to investigate the expected response of the Scientific Reception System to the suggestion of paradigm shift, a la T S Kuhn. I fear that all Sociologists of Science assume that paradigm shifts on the scale of phlogiston or caloric will never again happen, so Kuhn’s idea of a “dialogue of the deaf” does not come within the remit of sociologist of science.

Dear Hannah Devlin,

 

I spoke to you just now – Tuesday 15 July 10.30am.

 

I have worked in this subject area for more than thirty years, and find it fascinating. My prediction is that no journalist of any colour will touch it, but still I have approached you because of your article on p8, The Times, 3 July 2014; “Science Journal says sorry for stem-cell errors.”

 

The idea is that today’s professional science cannot allow paradigm shift ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradigm_shift ) over something like phlogiston, caloric or electricity.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phlogiston_theory

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caloric_theory

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity

 

During the time of the first two shifts, 1825, science was more the amateur province of wealthy businessmen, but still the shifts took more than 25 years. 200 years later, even the possibility of paradigm shift with electricity cannot be considered, or even the suggestion understood. http://www.electromagnetism.demon.co.uk/Y65BRILL.htm . Paradigm shift does too much short and medium term damage to an entrenched professional. (In the less extreme cases of AIDS or Climate Change, if HIV does not cause AIDS, thousands of jobs will be lost.)

 

My idea is that you study my material briefly, enough to write a brief “floater” article and see what the response is.

 

There is a precedent for this. Neville Hodgkinson, who has stayed in my home, http://www.reviewingaids.com/awiki/index.php/Neville_Hodgkinson , was medical correspondent for The Sunday Times. He published conventional articles on AIDS, but then came across what are now called “AIDS Deniers” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIV/AIDS_denialism . He broached the matter with the Editor, Andrew Neil, and they ran a trial article. The response of the Science Establishment was extreme. The then Editor of “Nature” told everyone to stop buying “The Sunday Times”. Andrew Neil dug his heels in, and published numerous Hodgkinson articles for perhaps ten years. Andrew Neil says their publication is one of his two greatest achievements as Editor.  The Sunday Times was the only media outlet in the world for “AIDS Deniers”.

 

It is interesting that “The Sunday Times” has now returned to the “Establishment” fold, and now publishes on AIDS as though Hodgkinson and his articles did not exist. The dissident view has been erased from the record. When I ask Sunday Times journalists why, they do not reply. Recently the new Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, told me that it was right that the leading AIDS dissident, Peter Duesberg, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Duesberg , should be suppressed “or hundreds of thousands would die”. http://www.duesberg.com/

 

Turning to my case. No relevant professor or journalist will give any written comment on published experimental results which point to problems in classical electromagnetism. No relevant professor or journalist will give any written comment on “The Catt Question”, an elementary question about the details of classical electromagnetic theory. http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x37p.htm . All you have to do is find one or more accredited experts, and ask them for written comment on one of these things. http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x344.htm , http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x31j.htm
