The effect whereby fringe distance measured from a standard interferometer changed from approximately 2m to 6m around April 25th and changed back around November 20th was investigated. These changes normally happen within a few days of the nominal dates but the actual change dates and the time to change are relatively random.
The results presented here indicate that it is changes at the equinoxes that are responsible for the later changes in April and November. These changes at the equinoxes take place because the torsion field from the Sun changes from illuminating one side of the equator to illuminating the other side.
The delay between the equinox and the subsequent changes observed in either April or November is caused by the influence of the mass of the planet. When an interferometer is screened from the mass the changes actually take place at the equinoxes.
The nature of influence of the mass of the planet is still unknown. It is believed that some changes slowly take place in the atomic structure of the planet between an equinox and the subsequent fringe change and that this change takes place twice a year.
Following the realisation that torsion fields were responsible for the dowsing effect, experiments were carried out with Spin Torsion Generators (STGs) referred to in Sun, Spin and Polyethylene. The essence of all the described STGs was a rotating mass. Experiments with torsion fields created by a simple rotating mass showed that when a compact interferometer was illuminated by a field from a rotating mass the measured fringe distance from the interferometer could be made to change between 6m and 2m dependent on the rotation direction. This observation posed a question as to whether the April and November events were triggered by the rotation of the planet. At the equinoxes the torsion field from the Sun changes from illuminating the plane of the equator from one side to the other side with the result that from the viewpoint of an observer on the planet the rotation direction of the field from the Sun is reversed.
If the equinoxes are the cause of the April and November events then there must be something that causes the delay between the equinoxes and the changeover events. One candidate for this delay was the persistence effect. This is an effect whereby the fringes created by an interferometer can still be observed for a short time after the interferometer has been removed. It appears as if the effects of the interferometer are somehow imprinted on the ground beneath it. The same effect can be seen if a Copper tube is laid on the ground. It creates a fringe at the point where it is positioned which persists for some time after it is removed.
In an attempt to discover whether the equinoxes were the trigger for the April and November events, crossed polyethylene sheets were placed beneath the compact interferometer used in the inverse effects experiment with the intention of removing any influence that the mass of the planet had on it. The arrangement is shown in Fig. 1
Note that depending on the built environmentin which the experiment takes place, it has been found that there may be no response from the Interferometer unless there is a mass on top of the screening material. A sheet of MDF is laid on top for this reason. Measurements of the fringe distance were taken over the period of the equinoxes.
Results obtained by investigators showed that changes of measurements from 2m to 6m and back did take place at the equinoxes.
Figure 2 shows that with screening in place the change in fringe distances from 2m to 6m in the northern hemisphere takes place around the time of the March equinox. Figure 3 shows a similar effect at the September equinox.
Fig. 4 shows the spread of changes around the time of the equinox
Figure 4 shows the results of a series of measurements taken over the years 2009 to 2013 by three investigators. There are some outliers but mostly the plot shows that when a standard interferometer is screened from the influence of the planet, fringe distance changes take place within a few hours of the equinoxes.
The inverse effects experiment showed that when using a compact interferometer, changes in fringe distance occur around April 25th and November 20th. This experiment shows that if the equipment is screened from the surface of the planet, changes in fringe distance occur around the March and September equinoxes. This result implies that the equinoxes are the precursor events that trigger the changes that occur around April 25th and November 20th. The results also imply that some unknown atomic property of the structure of the planet is triggered to change at the equinoxes with the changes taking several weeks to complete. It is believed that this same delay effect explains the persistence of fringes for a period after apparatus is removed.
Figure 5 summarises the changes that take place throughout the year in the northern hemisphere. These will be reversed in the southern hemisphere.
In the period between the March equinox and the fringe change around April 25th, if a standard interferometer is screened from the influence of the planet the observed fringe distance will change from 2m to 6m.
Between April 25th and the September equinox the fringe distance will be 6m and adding screening material below the interferometer has no effect.
Between the September equinox and around November 20th, adding screening material beneath the interferometer will change the fringe distance from 6m to 2m
After November 20th and before the April equinox the fringe distance will be 2m and adding screening below the interferometer will have no effect.
a) It has been found that it is not always necessary to add a sheet of MDF above the crossed polyethylene sheets in the experiment. This appears to depend on elements of the built environment and to cover all cases it is recommended that the MDF be used.
b) There have been problems carrying out the experiment in locations where the built environment is of high mass stone construction and even in open areas surrounded by large stone walls. Because of this it is recommended that the experiment is carried out in low mass buildings or outside. As with other experiments, exposure to rotating mass from computer disk drives and kitchen appliances etc should be avoided.
c) Subsequently it has been found that for measurements taken with an interferometer aligned north/south, a narrow strip of polyethylene 80 cm wide, with its stretch direction north/south, laid on the ground below the interferometer will cause fringe distance changes to take place at the equinoxes. As a result the fringe distance can be switched at will in the period between an equinox and the following event either in April or November by adding or removing the Polyethylene. At other times of year there is no effect.
