Marshall Barnes Out In Front Of Ronald Mallett with 4 Verdrehung Fan(TM) Demos At Bexley High School
Now that it is apparent that Ronald Mallett is 10 years away from having a demonstrable time machine, Marshall has an increasingly crushing lead with his latest move - 4 successful demonstrations with his Verdrehung Fan(TM) at Bexley High School.
"Marshall takes his time to come to schools and present interesting ideas and has since 2005", Kramer told one of his classes, 'and today he's going to talk about time and space and the possibilities for time travel and do an experiment".
For each class, Marshall called for two volunteers to assist in presenting his Verdrehung Fan(TM) demonstration, using a strobe light, the equipment used to produce and amplify the STDTS(TM) signal which produces the field, and the Verdrehung Fan(TM). As he has done before, the strobe light was used to optically lock the Verdrehung Fan(TM) into a certain behavior while it's running. The blades would appear to moving in a certain direction or oscillate or even seem motionless. Once a particular behavior was established, the fan would be switched off by one volunteer and then turned on again, once it came to a complete stop, to start the process over. Once the behavior had been reestablished, the other volunteer would switch on the STDTS(TM) equipment and the fan's behavior would soon change - indicating a difference in speed. This difference is caused by the STDTS(TM) field which contracts (or distorts) space as it moves through space. Marshall showed how nothing is going to the motor. In a radio interview, when someone has suggested that he's creating a magnetic field to cause the acceleration, Marshall was quick to point out that in control experiments, other signals don't create acceleration and that the STDTS(TM) signal has already been shown to cause acceleration in other moving objects, including pop cans doing gravity drops, for over ten years now.
The students were particularly impressed when Marshall explained that the what they were witnessing was accomplished with less than a 50 watt output and he knows that he can scale that up to at least 14,000 watts, indicating that the ability to warp time, as well as space, is within reach.
Before the demonstrations, Marshall lectured on the nature of time, showing a video experiment that he made with a high school class in Grandview Heights, OH that showed how time can be detected as a physical dimension attached to every dimension of space. He also covered special and general relativity, the Copenhagen and Everett/Wheeler interpretations of quantum physics and a mistake that Stephen Hawking made on the Discovery Channel in regards to a multiple connected spaces issue of using a wormhole for time travel. He quizzed the students on the Hawking error and for each student, who got the correct answer, he's giving a mint condition, hard cover copy of The Trouble With Physics by Lee Smolin, a donation of over $180 worth of books. The donation was made possible by the book publisher, Houghton Mifflin http://www.thetroublewithphysics.com .
Marshall is planning a tour of schools, malls, universities, colleges, sci-fi conventions, special interest meetings and conferences and science museums in at least 16 states, so far. One of his tour dates is already set for All-Con sci-fi convention in Dallas, Texas the first week of March, where he will appear along with Dr. Who actor, Sylvester McCoy http://www.all-
