Why Clock Speed Increases at High Altitude

PSI Blog 20210322 Why Clock Speed Increases at High Altitude


A question from Bill Howell:


“Hi Glenn- Per your request, I have a question: 


In IUT on pages 260-261 you describe (and depict in Figure 51) a halo of decelerated aether enveloping the Earth to explain the stable orbit of geosynchronous satellites and why gravity does not exhibit aberration.  I’ve read that without the proper application Einstein’s general theory of relativity, GPS satellites would produce inaccurate results of one’s location on Earth.  One description states: “The net result is that time on a GPS satellite clock advances faster than a clock on the ground by about 38 microseconds per day.”[1] Assuming that’s true, and given your model, couldn’t this time correction be re-interpreted to be indicative of the aether pressure gradient in the halo at the distance above the Earth that geosynchronous satellites orbit?  If so, an alternate question is could it be indicative of an aether density gradient rather than a pressure gradient?”


[GB: Great questions! The answer to the first is yes. To the second, an equivocal no. According to my Aether Deceleration Theory (ADT), aether pressure increases with distance from Earth, while its density decreases. This is because highly active distal aether particles have high short-range velocities, which decrease when they collide with ordinary matter. That means, of course, that these decelerated aether particles will have decreased velocities, which will decrease their potential for leaving whatever they collided with. This is where Newton made his greatest blunder regarding his push theory of gravitation. He proposed that the pushing medium increased in density with distance from Earth. He had entirely forgotten his Second Law of Motion. He should have known gravitation was an acceleration. An accelerator was called for and its deceleration was inevitable. I say the answer to your second question is equivocal only because, in this case, pressure and density are inversely related.


The beauty of ADT is that it shows how gravitation fosters creation by pushing things together, with its own perpetrators first doing the pushing and then sticking around to add to the creation. The deceleration produces a sort of aether vacuum around ordinary objects. That is the reason aether particles tend to travel toward those objects. Like Newton’s failed hypothesis, other push theories lack the reason for gravitational motion to be directed at baryonic matter. It is simple: particles in areas of high pressure tend to move toward areas of low pressure. So, the real actor in gravitation is pressure, not density. Pressure is the initiator; density is the result.


Now, with regard to your GPS question. The answer fits right in with ADT. As I mentioned, aether pressure increases with distance from Earth. That means any clock will receive more aetherial impacts at high altitude than at low altitude. Being a time piece, the clock is like any other microcosm containing submicrocosms in motion. Collisions from supermicrocosms (aether particles) in the macrocosm (environment) will increase the velocities of those submicrocosms within the clock. Think of it this way: When we reheat a cup of coffee in the microwave, those aetherial waves impact the cup, accelerating the water molecules within. Thus, whatever cyclic reactions are within a particular clock will be speeded up as a result of increased aetherial pressure.


Although the General Relativity Theory based explanation is just another einsteinism (right for the wrong reason), that theory is not used by engineers who developed GPS. They simply use a correction for altitude. They don’t need 4-dimensions or any other Einsteinian hocus-opus to do that.[2]]

From Jesse Witwer:

"I have contended with this a few times and looked into it as well.

Further to this, these GPS clocks are in need of constant re-synchronization. They require an accuracy that is well beyond the drift adjustment caused by the Aether pressure changes and their constant motion makes it impossible to correct for. Thus, they are constantly re-synchronized to realign them else they would be wildly inaccurate in short order.


[GB: Thanks Jesse. Right. There are other factors beyond the aether pressure adjustment caused by aether deceleration, which the GRT folks erroneously take credit for as a result of curved-empty space-time. The satellite macrocosm contains much baryonic matter in addition to aether. Just imagine what happens when a satellite hits or is hit by space debris. All the adjustments are Newtonian--none have anything to do with relativity.]

Hi there! I just want to say that I think you have a wonderful imagination, and if you applied your obvious enthusiasm and intellect, you could become an excellent writer of fiction!

Please note, by the above, I am not denigrating your scientific endeavors - although as a semi-educated person I do not have the knowledge to go into scientific discussions about even the most obvious points on which I have to differ with you, about what I see as logical mistakes and basic wrong assumptions.

For example, I do not know what you hold forth as aether, and how it supposedly interacts with matter, but I do know that satellites do not have "mechanical clocks" - I doubt that they have the need even for any digital display purposes, as no-one is up there and it is all in the digital platform used - which communicates electronically. So it would be impossible for whatever aether is to interfere with the digital time systems - without interfering with the digital systems per se. In this instance one would assume that no satelite would function correctly.

I only mentioned this,as the reason for the time dilation experienced is dependent on other theories - well established and confirmed, and as expected by the clever dudes designing these systems.

It's just a minor point but it has a knock on effect, as you well know. I have wondered about "stuff" in physics and cosmology and mathematics, only to find the answers and reasoning behind accepted theory pretty convincing and idiot-proof in most cases - me being the idiot - once you start looking closer... LOL!

There are a few characters whose "stuff" I have read bits n pieces off, and although thought provoking, that seems to be the whole of their impact - making people like me "think about things". That is to my mind exciting and challenging, and to go as far as stitching together a whole "theory of everything" takes commitment on a scale I sadly lack - by far.

Have you considered joining forces with other science geeks who have similar if deviating theories from yours, but also significantly from the general accepted current theories?

Philosophy is different animal - I do not think that extremely divergent thought are discarded or ignored, except if it can be proven illogical or patently wrong - so you still have to operate on pretty solid ground or your soapbox will collapse.

Where do I find your "magnum opus" to peruse a bit more, if you don't mind?

Thanks for the comment. Here are some refs for you to get up to speed:

See these publications on scientific philosophy:

The first is a pdf and is free. It also is on Amazon. The second is the magnum opus. BTW: You might want to read the first to see if you can accept the scientific assumptions. If you actually prefer the religious alternatives, then you might want to skip the other books.

BTW: All clocks are "mechanical" (matter in motion per Newton's Laws, don't you know).
