Ok, instead of working on my latest novel I am going to take some time to respond to a plethora of e-mails! It would seem that many of you like science fiction or in this case science supposition.
While gravitational lensing is a given, we have proof of it, what are the other implications?
In last night’s blog, we talked about a couple of UFO’s that were witnessed by very credible folks. In both cases, they appeared to be normal as far as flight characteristics. Then all of the sudden they just shot up at incredible speeds.
Our limited mind cannot comprehend how or why so many dismiss it as it was an optical illusion or it did not happen. Ok, but what if it did?
I genuinely do believe that it did happen because I do think outside the box. I am not locked into some stodgy person’s idea of what is and what is not. The scientists must, in fact, have open minds and be willing to admit that they are wrong.
Some scientist like some doctors cannot admit that they are wrong. They certainly don’t want to read what I write as a science fiction writer and take it seriously.
Hubris run amuck, and they are fools!
The first step in learning is to admit that you either don’t know or that you could be wrong.
The second step is to listen to diverse opinions and then be willing to accept that they may be right.
I have tweeted to two people that I respect in hopes that they might have the time to follow the link and proffer some insight on what I am putting forth. For Science fiction books it makes little difference but, remember that a lot of science that we have today started out as conjecture on some writers part.
Case in point Dick Tracy. No not science fiction but it hit me today as I was walking in the store and my phone rang. My watch hooked to my phone via Bluetooth was there telling me who it was. Pushing the little green button on my watch I was soon talking into it much like the old Dick Tracy comics of old. Yes, it took 50 years or so but Viola, I have the ultimate Dick Tracy watch!
So how does gravitational lensing work?
The gravity of an object is so strong that it warps space. This is also a crucial element to time travel.
As I stated last night, I think that space-time is local to the amount of gravity that an object or an accumulation of objects have. The difference between the earth and one of the planets is probably not significant enough to measure.
For our purpose if space is warped by gravity and space is actually space-time then the time constant of that space-time is different than that of ours here on earth. Did you follow that?
The sunspots, those huge storms that seem to go on forever I don’t think actually do go on forever. The mass of the sun or the immense gravity I believe has the sun in its own time zone. Those storms on the sun are actually occurring much faster but to us, the observer here on earth they seem to be so slow!
The same is true if you could witness something around a black hole.
The object that was about to be pulled apart at the atomic level would experience things just like we do here. The difference is if we the observer watched them it would take forever from our perspective! The closer they got the slower they would appear to go.
The storms on the sun if we could tolerate being in the same time zone as the sun would be much faster.
This brings us to quantum physics which I just love!
Particle physics is such a fun concept to ponder. If we examine the double slot experiment that has puzzled the masses, it makes no sense. What if that other photon, when observed, is doing something different another than location? Instead of asking where did it go how about when did it go?
As far as lensing is concerned, if the gravity is strong enough to warp space and we agree that space and time are related than I think we can also agree that my postulations of zoned time make sense.
Around large massive objects, the time zone is different than smaller objects. Inside the heliopause, time is relatively constant as far as measuring distances with the speed of light. In the void outside the solar system I think that is a different zone and again, outside the influence of the Milky Way (the void between galaxies), we would once again find that time was different.
I have been asked what limits the speed of light?
What if the photons can only go so fast until they start to turn time backward? Between galaxies, I would guess that speed would change as the time zone of the density of that space would change.
If we could artificially make a ship appear smaller than a photon, then we could do what? We could go backward in time.
Since I don’t have a DeLorean to play with and the Flux Capacitor was the invention of another writer I invented the Space-Time Modulator.
In my novel Under Roswell, this alien race uses an untested version of the PITM to try to go back in time to save their race who has foolishly used a dark matter bomb as a show of force to quell an uprising from a group of misfits.
The bomb is so efficient and so terrible, it not only turns their planet into a sun but it starts to suck matter from other worlds into it very much like the Big Bang in reverse!
Under Roswell was the first novel I wrote and it took four years.
Yes, it could probably use some professional editing, but it is really a great read. Look past the your instead of you’re, or you and you will enjoy the read.
If you want to assist a fellow author make notes of the typos and tell me where they are. I will fix them in some future version.
Many of my thoughts on science things are in the book which is more believable than a garbage sucking DeLorean that hurls Michael J Fox into the future.
If you want to sample some of my novels for free, I have the Hole In Time series on Kindle Unlimited. These are lunchtime reads that have been very popular with folks from all over the world. I would love to hear your opinion!
Ok, it is late and tomorrow is a workday. I still have a Full-Time Job as I have no agent as of yet. Because of that, my books are super inexpensive because no agent is getting some significant cut of the profit.
Let me be clear I am not dissing agents. Good agents bring a lot to the table, and they are worth what they produce. If you know of one who wants to work with someone with a proven track record send them over here. We will both thank you!
I stopped writing query letters as that could be a full-time job right there. It takes 4 hours for each letter if you do it correctly.
- Research the Agent or firm
- Read and understand what they want to see and in what format.
- Craft the letter exactly how they want to see it, they are all different.
- Look at who they already represent and understand who those authors are and what they write.
- It is at least a four-hour procedure to send an e-mail that has a chance at getting past their intern who is looking for dotted I’s and crossed T’s and some other information that we have no clue of what it might be.
I don’t have that kind of time or stamina. I have 26 published novels selling around the world. Amazon and Smashwords along with Barns and Nobles, Apple and a host of others are making money from what I do. The prices are dirt cheap because I am an independent author and while I work very hard to get my brand out there, I am still waiting for the first novel to go viral.
I even wrote a book much like 50 shades thinking that would most certainly do it. Over 3000 people look at that book every day! An earlier edition was hijacked and put on some site in some country that I cannot understand what the language is much less what it says.
If you are an author, I have many that follow me, I would love to hear from you.
I don’t have all the answers. I try and push ahead. The good news is that I do love what I do so it is not really a chore. I would love to write full time, but that is not in the cards currently.
Thanks for following me and reading my blogs and books!
Twitter is an excellent way to see what I am up to.
Contact me through the website www.authortwscott.com is a great way to say hello if you so choose.
This blog is another way.
DM’s on twitter I would rather not do. I don’t have enough hours in the day for that and for some reason some guys must think that I am sexually deprived and send me a picture of their …stuff…
As a writer of some erotic material, I must say that some of their stuff, is impressive but truly, I don’t need to see it. I have painted nudes before, so the human body is beautiful; either sex. An imitation of Anthony Weiner I don’t need. If you need some loving go read Cyber Subs. That book is HOT! Even if it is dinner and flowers for one, that book will get you there. If you are dating your hand or BOB, that novel has promise!
Whether you are dating or married, don’t forget that Valentine’s day is right around the corner!
Ok, it is late, good night loves!
