Grants Pass, OR, January 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In "Tidal Forces: A Different Theory," as presented at Caltech to the American Physical Society on Oct. 30, 2010, Roy Masters revisits the theories describing the moon raising the tides by virtue of pull gravity combined with the moon's centripetal angular momentum. Masters shows that if gravity is considered the attractive interaction between individual bodies, then a working moon would have fallen to earth eons ago.
Masters, founder of Gravity Driven Universe (http://www.gravitydrivenuniverse.org) and the host of the national radio program “Finding God in Physics” (http://www.gravitydrivenuniverse.org/radio-stations.html), explains, "Isaac Newton's laws of motion cannot work with pull gravity, but they do with Einstein's gravity as a property of the universe, which produces a continuous infusion of energy. In other words, the moon-Earth system becomes the first observable vacuum gravity energy machine. The dynamics of what appears to be a closed system has been producing energy that continues raising the tides into perpetuity along with the escape momentum needed for the moon's centripetal escape momentum at 4 cm per year. This is in defiance of Newton's first law, which says, 'If no force is added to a body it cannot accelerate.'"
Masters further questions, "Even taking into account other factors that affect the system, the moon would either have stopped speeding up or the earth slowed down even more than has actually occurred unless some sort of hitherto unnoticed infusion of energy is occurring -- perhaps a vacuum gravity energy machine mechanism adding energy to and sustaining the earth's rotation, as I have proposed elsewhere. If the energy inputs and outputs to the Earth-moon-ocean system do not add up without assuming such an infusion, this would tend to confirm that something like what I have proposed may be going on at a deeper level than, and provide and underlying explanation for, the local gravitational effects that Newton's and Einstein's laws directly measure and summarize. This hint may lead us to deeper insight about what goes on behind the scenes."
