Types of Redshift in an Aether Medium (Part 3)
Type IV The Cosmic Redshift
The cosmic redshift (Figure 1) supposedly indicates that the universe is expanding. Once we confirm the true cause of this type of redshift, it will mean the end of the expansion hypothesis and the Big Bang Theory. According to neomechanics, we assume that the cosmic redshift cannot be a result of any one of the other types of redshift. In an infinite non-hierarchical universe, of course, with microcosms moving in all directions there still would be Doppler Effects. Half would be blueshifts and half would be redshifts. The cosmic redshift cancels out some of the blueshift of light from objects moving toward us, and adds to the redshift of light from objects moving away from us. The cosmic redshift also must include the small redshift produced by all luminous objects as their light encounters denser aether when it leaves the baryonic-rich environs of the source.
The rest of each cosmic redshift obviously reflects the great distances involved. In neomechanics, no microcosm or motion of microcosms could travel from point A to B without losses. Perfect transmission of matter or the motion of matter, like perfectly empty space, is only an idealist’s dream—a dream that Hubble himself refused to accept. He totally rejected the oft-repeated claim by regressive physicists and cosmogonists that he had discovered that the universe was expanding. This put him squarely in the “tired light” camp, which eschews perfect light transmission.
As the holy grail of efforts to undermine the Big Bang Theory, there have been numerous attempts to explain the cosmic redshift because of tired light, without much success. One example is the Shapiro Effect, which is a time delay observed for light as it passes through the atmosphere of a cosmic body. The Shapiro Effect, however, is simply another manifestation of the misnamed “gravitational redshift.” As I explained above, light slows down and is blueshifted as it nears a massive body and enters the atmosphere. It speeds up again and is redshifted when it leaves the massive body. The blueshift and redshift cancel each other out, although the atmospheric entrance and exit takes extra time causing the “Shapiro Delay.” It is true, as Jerrold Thacker says, that light probably will traverse many of these atmospheres during its 13.8-Ga travels. Again, that would cause a time delay, but would not cause a redshift.
In seeking the cause of the cosmic redshift, we need not concern ourselves with corpuscular theory. That is because we assume light to be motion: a wave in the aether. For light to be transmitted as a wave for over 13 billion years without losing motion, each of those waves would have to be reproduced perfectly. That simply cannot happen. When it doesn’t, there is no mechanism by which a wave could gain energy, but the imperfection of the transmission guarantees many ways it could lose energy. In wave transmission, energy losses show up as increases in wavelength. Waves are always made up of individual microcosms, which transfer the motion from microcosm-to-microcosm as seen in Wikipedia demonstrations. Each of those collisions is susceptible to the six neomechanical interactions that I outlined in TSW. Because aether particles are extremely dense (Planck density is 1094g/cm3), the absorption of motion internally would be slight and would not be noticed for short distances. There have been apparently unverified claims (I have no scientific reference) that sound wave frequency decreases over distance even though the effect is tiny and seldom noticed. According to neomechanics, all wave motion should be redshifted over distance—references anyone? In any case, the upshot is that the only thing preventing us from understanding the cosmic redshift is aether denial.]
