In about March 2003 I formally commenced part-time candidature for the PhD in the School of Physics at the University of
New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, under the supervision of Professor John K. Webb. The support supervisor was
Professor Michael Ashley. I was initially engaged in the development of a computer simulation program in relation to
About a year later I began work on General Relativity as a sideline. After a few months I came up with a result that proved
black holes inconsistent with General Relativity. I presented this to Professor Webb. He was initially enthusiastic, and
even arranged for me to deliver a lecture to his undergraduate General Relativity class. Before my informing him, Webb had
never heard of Schwarzschild's original solution.
Later Webb arranged for me to have some contact with his colleague, Professor Paul Davies at Macquarie University in Sydney.
He and Davies, both being British, knew each other from their Cambridge days. Davies initially replied in a derogatory tone,
claiming that Schwarzschild's original metric, which he had never before seen, was not Ricci flat, and did not satisfy
Einstein's field equations. I proved these claims false, at the request of Webb. That drew more attention from Davies.
Unfortunately, Davies turned out to be rather inept (see some of his correspondence here), so he
sent my analysis to Professor Peter Szekeres of the University of Adelaide, son of George Szekeres of the Kruskal-Szekeres
extension. He proved just as inept. He too had never before
heard of Schwarzschild's original solution, and claimed that it was equivalent to Hilbert's metric (the one always and
erroneously called "Schwarzschild's " solution by the majority of the relativists and the writers of textbooks). I provided
a demonstration that this claim is false. Evidently Szekeres either did not understand this or did not want to hear of it.
He dismissed my analysis unscientifically. Davies, in subservience to Szekeres, then failed to respond any further. Webb
began to falter on the strength of the incompetent advice.
Webb also insisted that I confer with Professor Michael Kruchiev at
UNSW. I reluctantly complied. When I walked into Kruchiev's office he
immediately told me that he was not interested in discussion of my
work, but if I needed his help, he said, "I am all yours". He evidently
thinks himself a big-shot in science. There was some brief exposition
by Kruchiev of the Kruskal-Szekeres extension. I remarked that this
gives a non-static solution to a static problem (isn't that a
contradiction?). He looked at me stupefied. I terminated the meeting
after about 10 minutes, as it was obviously pointless.
Webb then attempted to engage Professor Victor Flambaum at UNSW. Flambaum refused to meet with me or to read my papers,
claiming, according to Webb, that I had no chance of being right. At that time there was a Russian visitor at UNSW
(Flambaum and Kruchiev are also Russians). Webb discussed the matter with the visitor. The visitor claimed that
Schwarzschild's original solution was wrong. He also claimed that he had just completed writing a book on General
Relativity in which he derived the black hole solution following the work of Weyl. I pointed out to Webb that this claim
was nonsense as it is clearly argued in Weyl's book, 'Space, Time, Matter' that there is no interior solution as claimed
by the black hole relativists. I referred Webb to the relevant pages in Weyl's book.
I had a meeting with Webb some time later, in his office, for discussion of the science. He understood nothing, and told me
so; but he lent his support to my continued research.
In mid to late 2004, with the support of Webb, I changed my PhD thesis to research in General Relativity.
In late 2004 and early 2005 Webb was in Cambridge on Sabbatical. He told me that he would discuss my work with his colleague
John Barrow, and with a bloke named Joao Magueijo who also fancies himself a theoretical physicist. I got nothing from Webb
in relation to these two colleagues of his. In fact, Webb was silent, but eventually replied to my email, clearly indicating
that he was no longer in support of my work. He even became abusive, to which I responded appropriately, not being one to
allow anyone to intimidate me. I had initially thought Webb a decent chap, but it turned out that he is in fact a rather
I was then published in Progress in Physics, by invitation of the Editors. Webb would not recognise the publications claiming
in so many words that Progress in Physics was not to be taken seriously.
I wrote up my thesis and made representation to Professor Mike Gal for early submission. Webb informed me that he was not
prepared to "sign off" on my thesis and that I must change my thesis topic if he was to continue as my supervisor. I
rejected his ultimatum, and informed Gal. Gal told me that I did not need Webb's consent to submit, but since my submission
was early, I would have to go through a bureaucratic process to get my thesis submitted, and that the School of Physics
would support my submission. Gal informed the Head of School, Professor Warwick Couch, of the situation and arranged a
meeting in Couch's office. I was to meet Couch in the company of Gal. Later Gal claimed that he was mistaken in his advice
on how early submission was to be effected.
The meeting took place. Gal and Couch insisted that I send a
paper to Physical Review and paid no regard to my publications in
Progress in Physics. They also insisted that I allow Professor Chris
Hamer of UNSW to read my papers so that Hamer could send them a report
and his recommendations. I met with Hamer a couple of days later and
gave him several of my published papers.
About a week or so later I received an email from Hamer, along with a copy of his report and recommendation, which he had
sent to Couch and Gal. He claimed that I was but an "apprentice". He had evidently read only one of my papers and did not
understand anything. His report contained a gross misrepresentation of my work. He had actually altered my work and thereby
claimed that I was in error and that I should not be permitted to submit and that if I wanted a PhD from UNSW I must alter
my topic as suggested by Webb. Go here for Hamer's covering letter, and go
here for Hamer's incompetent report.
I wrote in protest to Gal and Couch of Hamer's misrepresentation and incompetence. Couch replied that I was rude in my
remarks about Professor Hamer, and totally disregarded Hamer's alteration of my work and misrepresentation
thereof. My reply to Hamer is here.
I wrote to the University Academic Committee in protest. Go here for my letter. The Academic
Committee replied in full support of the School of Physics, and completely ignored Hamer's alteration of my work, his
misrepresentation of my work, and his incompetence. Go here for the Committee's letter in reply.
My next letter to the Academic Committee is here. The whitewash reply is
here, wherein the Presiding Member Faculty of Science, Dr. David Cohen, defends Gal and the School
of Physics, and conveniently omits addressing most of the issues upon which I specifically called for his comment.
I was then formally without a supervisor (although actually without a supervisor since early 2005 when Webb withdrew his
support), and therefore effectively expelled de facto from PhD candidature since the University rules do not allow
candidature without a supervisor, as the Academic Committee and the professors well know. No one in the School of Physics
would replace Webb as supervisor, and the University officials all knew this. By this tactic the University eliminated me
from the PhD programme, whilst maintaining a façade of integrity, or so it thinks.
I received a letter dated 16 December 2005 from UNSW threatening me with legal action if I did not pay fees for 2005. Go
here for the letter. I wrote back denying liability for the fees, since I had effectively been
expelled and was without any supervisor for that year. Go here for my reply. The Deputy Vice
Chancellor wrote back waiving the fees, but making no comment as to the misconduct of Hamer and the other professors. Go
here for his letter.
During the course of these events I attempted to engage in discussion so-called "experts" in General relativity. Amongst
them were included all the members of the International Committee for General Relativity and Gravitation. Of the latter I
managed to engage M.H.A. MacCallum in some discussion. MacCallum was from the outset rude and condescending, and inept. Go
here for his first letter (with some later ones appended). I replied
here. He next provided some incorrect argument as to why I was wrong and the usual relativists right. Go
here for this laughable document. I replied here.
After MacCallum, the gloves came off. Anyone who was rude or otherwise
behaved as a smart-arse I responded to bluntly. And I still do, since I
refuse to turn cheeks, having discovered that the majority of people
understand only the power of money and the persuasiveness of force. So
if it's a fight they want then it's a fight they'll get. Pasty-faced
softies however, cloistered away in universities are not much of a
challenge; but there are so many of them, like cane toads in the
breeding season. And so I now make no bones about how I view blokes
who, like K. Thorne and Ned Wright, prance about with long pony tails
and matching sandals, or wear earings and otherwise dress and behave
like girls (most "male" physicsts nowadays).
J. Berkenstein (member of the International Committee) wrote to me but offered no science, and simply called me an
"antiquarian" and generally insulted me. He then disappeared.
I had some correspondence with J. Pullin (member of the International Committee). He understood nothing and went to sleep,
never to be heard of again.
I also had some correspondence with one J. Sennovilla in Spain. He was rude from the outset and understood nothing about
type 1 Einstein spaces.
I also wrote to the famous Mr. Roy Kerr, of the Kerr solution, and pointed out errors in the standard interpretation of
his metric, and provided him with copies of my relevant papers containing the rigorous mathematical proofs. As I did not
hear from him I sent a second email complaining to him that it was discourteous of him not to reply. He finally replied on
the 2nd March 2006, and it was pathetic. First, he told me that my complaint of his discourtesy was "insulting crap".
Then he told me that my work is "rubbish" and referred me to the usual change of co-ordinates (e.g. Kruskal-Szekeres). He
offered no mathematical refutation or sound scientific arguments, although I requested him to provide this. I pointed out
that he was circular in trying to refute me by referring me to the Kruskal-Szekeres type co-ordinates since I have rigorously
proved the Kruskal-Szekeres co-ordinates invalid. Evidently that was too sophisticated for his poor brain. Kerr simply
threw a tantrum and took his bat and ball home when it become apparent to him that he couldn't win with mindless doubletalk,
evidently being of the view that facts which upset his applecart can be disposed of by ignoring them. Very convenient I'm
sure, but certainly not science. You can read the Kerr correspondence here.
I have also had some correspondence with a number of other sheepish relativists of no consequence. Not one offered any
science, just the authority of Hawking, Penrose, Einstein, and others. All were rude, stupid and incompetent (precisely what
they accused me of being, evidently taking umbrage for my return of the epithets). Other big-shots in black holes and
big bangs, such as Thorne, Misner, Israel, Rees, Penrose, Hawking, Ellis, Wald, little-shots such as J. Moffat, J. Barrow,
S. Carroll, R. d'Inverno, B. Shutz, some tiny-shots not worth a mention, and a few other scribblers of textbooks and popular
science, simply ignore correspondence. Evidently they think that ignoring work that invalidates their claims is scientific
method. However, that is actually scientific fraud.
My papers were posted to the electronic archive of the Abdus Salam
International Centre for Theoretical Physics,
Trieste, Italy, but members of the International Committee for General
Relativity and Gravitational and/or their associates, servant or
agents, arranged for all my papers to be removed from the ICTP. It is
now clear that the ICTP is also actively engaged in the suppression and
falsification of science. You can read about that here. My papers are cited on the
website of the American Mathematical Society
(the mathematicians seem to see what the relativists cannot, or will
not). In consequence of my work, subsequent to publication thereof, I
was invited to the editorial boards of Progress in Physics and
Bulletin of Pure and Applied Sciences E (Mathematics). I have been invited to present papers before conferences in
Tucson, Arizona (February 2006) and St. Petersburg, Russia (August 2006), to contribute to a number of books, and to edit and
review other books.
Neither black holes nor big bangs are consistent with General Relativity - General Relativity does not predict these alleged
phenomena. They are due entirely to incompetence in geometry. The basic issue is very simple. Consider the usual Minkowski
- r2(dθ2 +
0 ≤ r < oo.
The radius of Gaussian curvature of the spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section, Rc,
on this metric is the square root of the negative of the
coefficient of the infinitesimal angular quantities, namely Rc = r. The proper radius,
Rp, on this metric is the integral of
dr = r = Rc.
The fact that Rp = Rc is due to the fact that Minkowski space
is pseudo-Euclidean. In this case when Rc = 0, Rp = 0,
Now consider the usual line-element for the gravitational field as used by the relativists (c = G = 1), which they
incorrectly call "Schwarzschild's solution", and on which they merely assume that 0 ≤ r < oo is permissible therein,
ds2 = (1 -
- (1 -
- r2(dθ2 +
The radius of Gaussian curvature of the spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section is
Rc(r) = r, but the proper radius is,
dr = [r(r - 2m)]½ + 2m ln|r½ + (r - 2m)½| + K,
where K = const. Clearly Rp and Rc are not the same in
Einstein's gravitational field, except in the infinitely far field where they coalesce, because at infinity, space is
Euclidean. Now the lower limit of the proper radius is zero, and this occurs only when r = 2m and K = -2m ln√(2m).
Thus, when the proper radius Rp = 0, the radius of Gaussian curvature of the spherically symmetric geodesic surface
in the spatial section is Rc
= 2m. These are scalar invariants for Einstein's gravitational field, and are independent of any admissible r-coordinate
system. The fictitious point-mass is always located at Rp = 0. And generally speaking, r is
nothing more than a parameter related to distance in Minkowski space which is mapped into the proper radius and the radius of Gaussian
curvature of the spherically symmetric surfaces in the spatial section in
Einstein's field by means of functions on the metric, determined by the very structure of the metric.
Most relativists, including Mr. Kerr, do not understand that two radii are defined on the line-element for Einstein's
gravitational field. They are all ignorant of the fact that Rp(2m) = 0 and
Rc(2m) = 2m for their preferred
line-element, and instead erroneously drive the radius of curvature down to zero by means of nonsensical "coordinate
transformations", under the misapprehension that, as in Minkowski space, the radius of curvature is identical to the proper
radius, which is nonsense in Einstein's gravitational field. The inequality of the two radii in Einstein's field (except at
infinity) is an inescapable consequence of Einstein's pseudo-Riemannian geometry. Furthermore, they all assume that a
singularity must only occur where the Riemann tensor scalar curvature invariant (the Kretschmann scalar) f =
RαβσμRαβσμ = infinity. However, none
of them have ever proved that Einstein's theory requires this. The assumption is actually demonstrably false,
but with it they go searching for a suitable "change of coordinates" to make it so when r = 0, having assumed that their r
is the proper radius, which is also false. They have all violated the irrefutable and elementary mathematical fact that a
geometry is entirely determined by the form of its line-element.
Consider the general line-element
ds2 = A(r)dt2
- C(r)(dθ2 +
A(r), B(r), C(r) > 0.
The solution to this general metric, in accordance with those principles which lead to the usual line-element for Einstein's
gravitational field, is
ds2 = (1 -
- (1 -
- C(r)(dθ2 +
√C(r) = [|r - ro|n +
r is real,
n is positive real,
r ≠ ro,
where ro and n are entirely arbitrary real constants. The black hole singularity does not occur
because this metric is well defined for all real r ≠ ro.
Note that Minkowski space is merely a parameter space and r in Minkowski space is merely a parameter
for the proper and curvature radii Rp(r) and Rc(r) respectively,
in the gravitational field, given by
so that in the limit, Rp(ro) = 0 and
Rc(ro) = α, irrespective of the
values of the arbitary real constants ro and n. There is only one singularity, at the arbitrary
ro in Minkowski parameter space, corresponding to
Rp(ro) = 0 in the gravitational field. If one chooses n = 3,
ro = 0, and r > ro, Schwarzschild's true solution is obtained,
wherein 0 < r < oo.
If one choses n = 1, ro = α = 2m, and r > ro, the usual
line-element is obtained, but clearly for which α=2m < r < oo. There is no interior region in any
case, and no horizon. The concept of an event horizon or trapped surface is humbug.
The parametric distance |r - ro| is always zero when r = ro,
irrespective of the value assigned to ro,
and this is mapped into Rp(ro) = 0 and into
Rc(ro) = α in all cases. Thus, General Relativity does not
predict or permit the absurd black hole. Furthermore, for the same fundamental technical reason, General Relativity does not
predict or permit the equally absurd expansion of the Universe or the ridiculous Big Bang.
Here is yet another unproved assumption of the relativists - that one line-element is sufficient to describe Einstein's
gravitatonal field. Two line-elements are actually required; one for the interior of a body and one for the exterior
region surrounding it.
If those vainglorious relativists, including Mr. Kerr, want to hold on to their precious but ridiculous black holes
and prove me a mug into the bargain, they must rigorously prove that the geometrical relations on the Minkowski line-element
by which the proper radius and the radius of curvature are determined, do not hold for the general line element given
above, satisfying Rμν
= 0, and in particular do not hold on their usual metrics for the
gravitational field. They should also prove, which is equivalent for
the purpose, that General Relativity requires of necessity that a
singularity must occur where the Riemann tensor scalar curvature
invariant is unbounded. But without making up their own ad hoc geometry (which is precisely what they have always done), this is impossible,
and so they must admit to an error in schoolboy mathematics; but
then, what of their reputations and their jobs?

It was recently brought to my attention by the folks at ArchiveFreedom
that they received a letter of disapproval of the report herein (to
which their website contains a link) on the dishonourable acts and
omissions perpetrated by the physics professors and Academic Committee
of the University of New South Wales, from the founder of its School of
Physics, Emeritus Professor Heinrich Hora. The letter was forwarded to
me for response. Mr. Hora claims that his University and his professors
did no wrong, and told me that my report is insulting to UNSW, its
professors, and himself. He does not disapprove of the serious
misconduct of his professors one bit. You can read his arrant nonsense
here. Professors at UNSW seem to think that they can commit fraud with impunity. I doubt that the courts would agree
