Our Gravitational Redshift Interpretation Confirmed
To Steve Puetz, my co-author on "Universal Cycle Theory: Neomechanics of the Hierarchically Infinite Universe":
Congratulations! Our gravitational redshift interpretation from the book (Puetz and Borchardt, 2011) that we summarized at NPA last year (Borchardt and Puetz, 2012) has just received confirmation from this paper:
A quote from the intro:
"An optical approach begins by interpreting the gravitational redshift resulting to a change in the relative velocity of light due to the medium of propagation in the gravitational field. From the optical point of view it is natural to think of the effect as due to the velocity change of light in the medium of propagation. In such a thought, the redshift effect has nothing to do with relativity but rather is of a purely optical phenomenon."
Note that in this paper “Optical Approach to Gravitational Redshift,” all Korean physicist, Yong Gwan Yi, had to do was to give up aether denial.
