In my post from Jan 30, 2019 (“Dark Energy is Getting Stronger”), I referenced new data out of the University of Florence and Durham University in England, via NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton spacecraft, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, which pointed to an accelerating rate of expansion for our universe.

In “The Enlightening,” Merle Akeetheran opines that overpasses and underpasses that allow wildlife to safely cross busy roads are a good idea. Merle points out that many people are killed and seriously injured each year due to vehicle/ animal collisions, and the carnage inflicted upon the affected fauna can be quite considerable. In fact, Merle […]
Seems like everyone likes to read something on the lighter side, now and then. Physicists are no exception, as contended by researchers from the University of Exeter. Just another reason why a physicist would enjoy reading The Enlightening. Here is a brief summary of their findings, from Physics World. https://physicsworld.com/a/do-physicists-avoid-reading-papers-with-lots-of-equations/
As some of those who are aware of The Enlightening may know, my interest in cosmology and astrophysics spans back nearly 30 years. The mystery of dark matter is what really caught my interest back in the early 1980s, when I began to research and study the subject, in earnest. I put the time […]
Some new research out of the University of Florence, indicating a “mysterious” increase in the flow of dark energy, validates my own model of the hyper-dimensional universe, as described in “The Enlightening.” Here is the link from the hyper-dimensional universe site.

A lot of people say that there aren’t any good UFO photos or videos. Here is some footage captured by a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet using an advanced Raytheon infrared imaging system. The Weapons Systems Operator manages to “box” the image of a very fast object, on his third attempt. The rapidly flying object in question is […]
In one scene of The Enlightening, Merle mentions that the song “Green River,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, reminds him of William Wordsworth. In fact, Merle says that the song wouldn’t even be possible if it wasn’t for Wordsworth, who was perhaps the primary figure of the Romantic Era of English literature. English Romanticism valued emotional, […]
Read my post, My thoughts on Dark Matter, to learn more about the science discussed in The Enlightening.
One of the big themes of The Enlightening is that of community effort– a group, or groups of people banding together for a common cause, in order to create something greater than the simple sum of its parts. As the author of the book, I certainly know that I would have never gotten it “self-published” […]
