A Key Prediction of Subquantum Kinetics is Confirmed

Subquantum Kinetics requires that G etherons (G-ons) continually diffuse into the Earth, driven by the gradient in the Earth's 1/r gravitational potential field.  The low G-on concentration within the Earth, as compared with the Earth's space environment, arises because G-ons are predicted to be produced at a slower rate in the neutral matter within the Earth as compared with surrounding space.  That is the reverse reaction G ← X proceeds slower there as compared with the forward reaction G → X.  This results in a low G-on concentration within the Earth.

This prediction was confirmed in 2009 when German scientist Martin Grusenick conducted an interferometer experiment that proved the existence of an ether and that indicated the presence of an ether wind oriented vertical to the Earth's surface.  He constructed an interferometer, shown above, which is similar to that used by Michaelson-Morley.  He found that when he rotated the interferometer beam platform around an axis parallel to the Earth's surface, as Michaelson and Morley had done, that he saw no fringe shifts, the same result that Michaelson and Morley reported.  However, he found that when he rotated the same interferometer apparatus so that it rotated in a plane perpendicular to the Earth's surface, he saw a fringe shift, a shift of 11.5 fringes during the course of one half revolution of the apparatus and a shift of 11.5 fringes back to their original position during the second half revolution of the apparatus.

Later he constructed an improved version of  the interferometer, shown below, and found a total fringe shift of 1.5 to 2.0 as the apparatus was rotated in the vertical direction.  This value comes closer to that of U.S. researcher Frank Pearce who has performed a version of the Grusenick experiment using a 1 inch thick granite block, instead of an aluminum board, for mounting the interferometer mirrors and who found a shift of only about one half to one fringe when the apparatus was rotated in the vertical direction.  For more about the Grusenick experiment may be found at:

The fact that Grusenick had found a fringe shift when rotating his apparatus in the vertical direction implies that an ether wind is present which flows vertically with respect to the Earth's surface.  In fact in a personal communication Grusenick confirmed that the detected ether wind was flowing downward into the Earth, just as subquantum kinetics predicted.  Hence light waves from the laser traveling upward, against this ether flow, would move slower than light waves from the laser traveling downward, in the same direction as the flow.  This results in a fringe shift of the interference pattern relative to its fringe position when the apparatus is oriented with its beams perpendicular to the ether flow.  He reported to me that he detected an ether wind velocity of 30% c.

Interestingly, Newton originally theorized that gravity was due to the pressure caused by ether continuously flowing down into the Earth.  It is said that he did not mention the idea in his Principia because he could not conceive of a mechanism that would push the ether into the Earth.  Of course SQK solves this problem.  It is said that Tesla also believed there to be an ether flow directed into the Earth and took this into account in how he conducted his experiments.

The prediction that G-ons are consumed more rapidly within material bodies is not an ad hoc assumption but rather arises as a direct consequence of Model G.  Hence the finding of Grusenick constitutes a confirmation of the theory adding to the 12 plus other confirmations that have been cataloged in the past.  Grusenick's video describing the original version of his experiment is given below.

The early prediction that neutral matter would have a deficit of G-ons and induce an inward G-on flux was made in the following references:

1985: “An Introduction to Subquantum Kinetics: II. An Open Systems Description of Particles and Fields” Intl. J. General Systems, Vol. 11(4); see pp. 309-310.

1994, 2003, 2010, 2012: Subquantum Kinetics (editions 1-4) Starlane Publications; e.g. see pp. 71-72 in the 2003 edition or Sec. 4.3 in the 2012 edition.  Also p. 97 in the 2003 edition ( Sec. 5.2 in the 2012 edition) describes how this flux would vary as 1/r2.

Also the following paper and book describe more explicitly that a G-on flux flows downward into the Earth:

2001: "How the Searl Effect works"; see p. 13.

2008: Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion [Bear & Co.]; see pp. 326-327, also illustrated with a diagram.

The SQK prediction that the ether wind should drop off as 1/r2 with respect to the Earth's surface is testable.  If the Grusenick experiment were conducted in space 3000 km above the Earth's surface, the downward Earth-directed component of the ether wind flux should be less than half what is measured at the Earth's surface.  Of course it may be a challenge to untangle this component from the ether wind component arising from the motion of the Sun and Earth relative to the ambient ether.  However, such an experiment could distinguish this prediction from Machian theories of gravity which predict an Earth directed ether flux that does not vary with radial distance.
