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.



21 Responses to Grusenick Experiment Proves the Existence of the Ether and of a Vertical G-on flux

  1. Joe says:

    Paul, have you ever read Karl Schappeller book on the primary physics of matter and glowing magnetism? Aether is also static and we move as a planet in the aether sea, making it dynamic during the interaction. Aether seems to interact and come from counterspace during opposite field interaction and then go back to counterspace in what would be the aether vacuum. Do you think that line of thought goes with SQK???

  2. TC says:

    Can this effect be explained by a) the Coriolis Effect, or perhaps b) gravitational potential differences due to height change which causes a red/blue shifting of the photons?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      No, as described in the posting, this G-on flux is induced by the gradient in the Earth’s gravity potential field (a 1/r G concentration field).

  3. David says:

    Thank you for the information Dr. Paul,

    I was wondering exactly what is this “Flux” composed of and is there any other means of observing it.

  4. David says:

    Dear Dr. Lavioltte,

    I am so glad to her from you as I have been thinking about you a lot.

    I am especially happy about your news of the Ether, as I have been reading about Paracelsus…..

    “”The life of man is an astral effluvium or a balsamic impression, a heavenly and invisible fire, an enclosed essence or spirit. We have no better terms to describe it. The death of a man is nothing else but the end of his daily labour, or taking away the ether of life, a disappearance of the vital balsam, an extinction of the natural light, a re-entering into the matrix of the mother. The natural man possesses the elements of the Earth, and the Earth is his mother, and he re-enters into her and loses his natural flesh; but the real man will be re-born at the day of the resurrection in another spiritual and glorified body.” (De Natura Rerum) [24]”

    Thus if man dies the soul remains, and its higher essences go to form the substance of the body of the paradisiacal man, “the man of the new Olympus”, [chapter 4] and the lower essences of the soul, from which the spirit has departed, dissolve in the astral elements to which they belong, as the earthly body dissolves in the elements of the earth.

  5. Warren York says:

    Do it in free space. I bet you will find gravity plays a part in it.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Subquantum kinetics predicts that the ether wind causing this fringe shift is generated by the Earth’s gravity potential field gradient. So SQK predicts that if the experiment is done in space away from the Earth, no similar effect will be seen. If you mean that the effect is due to gravitational forces acting on the apparatus, the answer is no. The effect appears to be due to an ether wind, not to a gravitational force.

      • Tom Atkinson says:

        I initially wondered if the weight of the camera on the rig is causing the rig to bend when 180 degrees up etc. Without the camera then the lasers maybe weighing it down surely?

        For me the truth will be shown in the time of day: I’d expect more wind at midnight than midday since our speed relative to the sun is higher.

        • Paul LaViolette says:

          I don’t agree. The ether wind is measured to be directed into the Earth, not going past the Earth. So time of day would not affect it. I’m sure if there was a time of day difference that Grusenick would have seen it.

          • Tom Atkinson says:

            ok i see… i was assuming it to be like the air of the cosmos (a “static” reference frame)…..

            so if instead it is coming straight down all over Earth – how fast? i don’t think at speed of light…. if not then would it not come fastest at say sunrise than sunset? since we are going in a circle at 107,230 km/h through the ether, maybe the axis rotation of 1674 km/h would come into play?

            so we’d see a diurnal variation ~3348 km/h of ether drift? eg from 105,556 km/h – 108,904 km/h…. actually hold on i’ve confused myself. most of what I’m thinking of is peaking at midday and midnight.

            we have no idea the true velocity of the g-on flow?

            based on 940 million km solar orbit radius / 365.256 days.

          • Paul LaViolette says:

            One posting on the internet estimates that Grusenick was finding an ether wind speed of 30% c. This seems a bit high to me since it would imply that Earthlings are experiencing a relativistic time dilation of 6%.

  6. Russell M. Bowles says:

    Nikola Tesla basically said all we need to do is harness all the available Free Etheric energy.
    I’m relieved that all those disavowed by mainstream physicists finally finally are proven correct. It would’ve been so sad if they gave up !
    Trump’s Family is said to have the Tesla papers seized when he passed .
    I say release them All !!!

  7. Sidney Somes says:

    Listen to the roar of astonishment from the physics community. It’s in all the newspapers! Truly sad how long it takes to get physicists to wake up to the enormous amount of evidence the orthodox theories are failures and that other theories better fit the evidence.

  8. Au Yin Ching says:

    This looks likes one of the experiments Dayton C Miller did.I wouldn’t say the set-up is entirely Grusenick’s idea, just read Miller’s 1933 papers on Ether-Drift and you’ll know.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Interesting experiment, but in my opinion his theory of gravity is incorrect.

      • Dr. Paul, what about Dr. George Michlo, Hungarian astronomer, “The Push of Gravity” Vantage books, mid-90’s. Michlo follows up on the ideas of Devos and Sagnac and develops them far more fully. It is interesting to watch as he collapses variegated formula into a simpler, shared basis. Slender volume and a snappy read.

      • Following from Edgar Guyer’s Symmetric Cosmology (with Neutrons) that ‘virtual particles come into material being, bringing dimension with them’ is there no basis for thinking that ‘gravity is a scalar pressure, anisotropic, originating in the Cosmic Voids’ ?
