Marshall Barnes To Release Breakthrough Paper On Stephen Hawking/Discovery Channel Wormhole and CTCs

After doing a test of the feedback demonstration from the Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking, Discovery Channel mini-series, Marshall Barnes is set to publish paper that shows Hawking wormhole time machine example wouldn't function at all.

PRLog - Mar. 12, 2012 - YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio -- After conducting a physics demonstration at Thomas Worthington High School in Worthington, Ohio last month, that showed flaws in the wormhole time machine model featured on the Discovery Channel mini-series, Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking, R&D engineer and conceptual theorist, Marshall Barnes http://informalscience.org/member/show/8498 , has completed a significant paper on Stephen Hawking's Chronology Protection Conjecture and closed timelike curves that raises new issues about how curved space-times would actually behave. Furthermore, it completely destroys the validity of how the wormhole time machine on the Discovery Channel program is described to function, to such an extent that the example is worthless as a model of how time travel to the past would work.

Conceptual theorists deal regularly with complex theoretical models and holistic paradigms. Marshall Barnes has had experience in that regard dating back over 30 years in a number of fields requiring manipulation of multiply connected, abstract spaces, which makes him particularly good at complicated, theoretical physics models. He cites, in particular, his experience with video special effect design, requiring the layering and manipulation of multiple image inputs, as an especially important training that has allowed him to see significant flaws in space-time geometries promoted by physicists like Hawking which deal with multiply connected space-times. Marshall was doing video between 1979 and 1993, during the days before the computer technology existed that makes special effects simple and inexpensive enough for kids to do on their lap tops today. Back then, video production switchers were required to put camera images, tape playback and graphics together in a single screen display. At Thomas Worthington High School, Marshall explained this by recounting how he figured out how to put laser beams into video laser fight scenes without expensive frame by frame computer rotoscoping, by a complex process of keying, invisible vertical wipe placement, and 3 D axis manipulation - of a white line created with a Chyron, with a digital video effects generator  for the beams. He also began to receive his engineering experience in those days, developing physical special effects, such as an "energy sword" that lit up for real and could be easily seen in broad daylight, as opposed to being painted in frame by frame (rotoscoping), as was done in the Star Wars films, and doing video engineering in a public access TV station.

Marshall has caught a number of mistakes that Stephen Hawking has made and is currently favored to win a one hundred dollar bet with Hawking http://www.prlog.org/10118485-stephen-hawking-bets-agains... over the existence of the Higgs Boson particle which Hawking declared wouldn't be found back in 2008 http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/news/world/hawking-bets-1... . Scientists have since been announcing that they were getting closer to identifying the elusive particle, said to theoretically give other particles mass, with the most recent announcement this month. They have narrowed the area down to the point that it is expected to be positively discovered later this year.

Marshall's paper will be released on a site or sites, this week, yet to be announced, but is significant enough that a lecture tour is being planned behind it. Marshall's demonstration, of how the audio feedback example from the Discovery Channel Stephen Hawking mini-series is wrong, will be performed at the largest science festival in the country, the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. the last weekend in April.
